Dog Events

Those of you who know me may think that I'm obsessed with my dogs...and that's sort of true! At this point in my life, they seem so much better than kids to me! Jimmy and I even bought them costumes for Halloween (one a banana, the other an angel).

Such sweet little girls :) Jimmy and I try to keep our girls active and entertained so we do things like going to the dog park, agility class, etc. If you like to do things with your dogs, here are a few October events you may want to attend:

October 8th: Pup-a-ween @ Alum Creek Dog Park, 12 noon- 5 p.m. Here's the link:
October 9th: Izzie and Angel's Birthday Party! This is at my house. See my events on facebook for details :)
October, the whole month: Lynd's Farm Corn Maze- it's dog friendly and Wizard of Oz themed

Remember to love on your doggies and have fun with them!

Late Night Dance Party= Fun Date with Husband

My hubby asked me out on a date this past weekend...the date was a dance party in the middle of our living room :) It was SO MUCH FUN!!! We went to Pandora, put in "Ice Cream Paint Job" and danced from 10-11 p.m. Hoping for more spontaneous dates in the future! :)

I am overwhelmingly excited about our vacation in December!!! The picture above is from our honeymoon in Antigua. That was our breakfast view every morning :) This time we are going to Sandals Grande Riviera in Ocho Rios, Jamaica! I'm super stoked to be staying 7 days this time. Sometime in the middle of the week, we'll be taking a catamaran cruise to Dunn's River Falls (an amazing waterfall in Jamaica). Anyway, I had to share my excitement because I just can't contain it! I'll leave with a picture of one of the sunsets in Antigua:

The Joy of the Lord WILL be my strength

You guys know I suck at writing so this is nothing mind-blowing...just something that stuck out to me at church. Pastor Rich has been speaking to us about joy. This part stuck out to me because I possess them all:
Joy Killers:
  1. Selfishness- "For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind" -James 3:16. YIKES! This is a problem for me...I'm selfish all the time!
  2. Resentment- "Watch out the no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many." -Hebrews 12:15. Another YIKES!
  3. Fear- "Anxiety weighs down the heart..." -Proverbs 12:25. Holy moly...I'm anxious A LOT.

See that cute girl in the middle of the front row? That's my sister Katelyn :) I met her almost 11 years ago when my mom was dating my now step dad, Steve. I believe she was three years old at the time and is now 14! OH MY GOODNESS!!! So much has happened in those 11 years!
I was so excited when I visited home in July to help my parents move to WV. I could tell that Katelyn had grown up a lot. We also had a new bond...Christianity. She told me all about her story of how she came to know the Lord. It was so AWESOME! I got to enjoy her company again this past weekend. We spent a lot of time together including Zoombezi Bay...it was a blast. I am so proud of her and can't wait to hang out with her some more :)
