Memorial Weekend!

This has already been a great weekend! Last week, I randomly got thinking about the things I love and ended up deciding I wanted to double major (english and youth ministry!) It was never something I considered. But when the phones were quiet at work, I got to thinking about the things that matter most to me and YoungLife was there. It just always fills me up so much and is the best part of my week. So I decided I want to make it part of my career. It will be with a non-traditional concentration, like YoungLife (in the way that we reach out to kids that may have no interest in knowing God or don't know Him at all). I love that about YoungLife! Don't get me wrong, youth groups at church are so great, but I love that we go to high schools and we make relationships with kids that are struggling with DEEP issues like partying, sex, etc. and may not even want to know God! Those are the kids that need Him so badly and I want to focus in on that! So that was a great way to start off my weekend because I plotted out my four-year schedule to make sure I could graduate in four years and I can!!! I feel like it's such a God thing because right when the thought started, a girl walked into our office for an appointment and was a youth ministry major and was telling me all about it and I got chills and my eyes were watering because I feel like it's what God is calling me to! So yay! :) Friday, I got off work early and went to the mall with the intentions of finding a cute, inexpensive dress from Forever21. However, a sign on the outside of PacSun (a store I haven't shopped at in years) caught my attention, so I wandered in. I ended up finding a swimsuit for $25 total! I love a good deal!! haha! Then I hung out with some YoungLife kids and Josh and Kyle! Always love hanging out with them, even if it was while seeing a pretty inappropriate movie (The Hangover 2...don't recommend it lol!) Yesterday (Saturday) I was productive around the apartment! I cleaned (dishes, laundry, room, swept, took out trash, groceries!) It felt good to get a lot done! And then I made dinner for Joshua! Just spaghetti with a good meat sauce and bread! He surprised me with flowers and sour patch kids :) Little things like that just make me appreciate him even more because it reminds me that he still keeps me on my toes, which I love! We watched a movie (The Dilemma, not as funny as it looked! Actually kinda sad haha!) and went in the hot tub! But before that, we stopped at the cookie mill to get the most amazing ice cream cookie sandwiches! Yum! Today is exciting because I get to go to a WEDDING! Woop woop! :) haha Josh's aunt is getting married and although I haven't met her yet, I'm very excited (Come on, it's a wedding!) Tomorrow = No work! Hanging out with Ashley! What a great/relaxing weekend this has been! Missing my family! Can't wait to go home in just two and a half weeks! The weekend I'm there will fly by but I'm just so excited to be with my family! Also missing my sister, who unfortunately is gone for almost another month! :( But I'm so happy that she gets to be exploring new things and learning about things related to her future job! Well, that was my little update! Have a great weekend all!
