Five on Friday

Oh My Lawd! The weather in SC the past few days has been nothing short of glorious! who doesn't love sunny and 75?? I honestly thought all that rain was going to make me go crazy. With the weather being so sunny and nice it's made me really want to pack up and head to those white sandy beaches... *sigh* If only my pocket book felt the same way... #brokecollegkidprobs

One 
I am so beyond excited for this weekend! Wanna know why? Me and my family are headed down to Georgia to see my Nana. It's hard having family that lives far away, especially when you are really close to them. I hate only getting to see her every few months, so this trip is welcomed with opened arms.

On Wednesday afternoon I had lunch with my friend Brooke. Brooke and I have been singing together on our church's worship team for a few months now; however, we've just started to get close. I can tell already that me and this lovely lady are going to be good friends for a VERY long time! I mean how can you not be besties with someone who sings Part Of Your World and Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious just as loud as you do?

Okay, so I've decided to try and do something really crazy guys... drink 90 ounces of water a day. Do Ya'll know how hard that is?? I mean oh my goodness. I feel like all I'm ever doing is drinking water. So needless to say, if anyone has any tips send them my way!

One of my BFF's Jennifer recently became certified to teach Zumba and has just launched her own class. Oh my! Zumba is so much fun! I honestly don't even feel like I'm working out, It's more like a fun party with all your girlfriends. If you've never tried it before, do yourself a favor and find a class near you.

Five 
Lastly, I leave you with this darling picture of Hampton and I. I mean look at that adorable, big, cheesy grin! I can't take it.

Happy Birthday Katie!

Oh my word... I do so believe South Carolina has turned into the Rain forest. It has done nothing but rain for the past two weeks! Pretty sure we've had about three feet of it. I guess the saying is true, April showers bring May flowers!

Back to the main mission of this post, Katie bugs birthday.

I can't believe my little bug is 14! Wow. Seriously making me feeling old. #oldestsisterprobs

We pretty much spent the whole weekend just hanging out and having a grand ole time.

Saturday 
Us girls decided to tackle shopping and movie to celebrate the Birthday girl. We went to see Paul Blart Mall Cop 2. I wasn't to impressed with this one... but I'm a huge Kevin James fan so it was okay by my book.

Cuties getting ready. :)

Okay, so I have the hardest time finding sunglasses to fit my face... having chipmunk cheeks has it's negatives. However, Target had these on sale, and what do ya know? They fit my face! 

In order for you to understand my next picture you MUST watch this video. It's a hilarious 6 minutes you wont regret. 


Channeling my inner Amy Schumer! 


Sunday 
Hello Sunday funday! Sunday involved going to church, typing up a presentation, and watching The Muppet's Most Wanted. Which by the way, is a pretty cute movie.   



We also did a good bit of face timing with this kool kid over the weekend! 


Let me introduce you to Kahlil. 


That's it for my weekend! What did you do?

Just A Simple Hello

Life has a way of completely taking over at times. You get so caught up in the motions that you forget to take time out of your day to do simple things you love. Well, this is what happened to me over the past month or so.

Working full time, going to school, being very involved in church, and trying to maintain relationships can take it's toll on you. However, this past week I lost a friend due to being hit while riding his bicycle. His sudden death really hit me hard. We never know when our last day could be. It's time to just stop living a life of monotony and take the time to really enjoy every minute of this beautiful life we've been given. 

So I decided to start back up on with one of the things I love to do the most, blog. 

Okay, I'm going to give everyone a little update on what's going on in my life and some posts you can look forward to. 

1. Well, I tried super hard at Spanish but ended up having to drop it. I seriously studied for almost forty hours for one single test and I made a 60. I was done... But hey, you win some and you lose some, right?  

2. One of my dear childhood friends Candice, is getting married Saturday. Oh My goodness! I can't believe it happening. I can remember us talking late into the night about our weddings and now it's almost time for her big day! Really makes me realize just how fast time flies by.  

3. A couple of of weeks ago one of my good friends Summer, asked me if I would like to join her on a trip to New Zealand. Um, Heck ya! We are planning the trip for May 2016. I'm too excited! 

4. The Barnabas X team is starting to plan our 2015 trip to Rwanda. I can't wait to go back to my home away from home and see my Rwandan family. 

5. Now for what I'm most excited about... God is doing some truly phenomenal things in my life! He is changing me and guiding me in ways that I've never experienced before. It has set my heart on fire and made start seeking him relentlessly. I feel in my spirit that he about to turn my life upside down and do some wondrous things. I can't wait to share with you what all he is doing! 

Whelp, that's it for today. It feels so good to be emptying out all my thoughts to you guys again. I've missed it. I hope you all have a blessed Monday.  

Love, Amber
