Tis the season to be Jolly!

The best time of the year is here. ;)
tree decorating, gingerbread houses, cookies, oh the fun times.

Cookies that I made from a recipe that my friend
Shelby gave me, I think she got it from Lauren Conrad. :)
I put a new table cloth and centerpiece.
My mom is gonna love it! :)
My brothers really wanted traditional colors.
So we went with Red, Silver, & Gold.
I think we need more ornaments.
Attempting to make gingerbread houses with my brother
and his girlfriend. It was fun, but it is WAY harder than it looks.
New Coffee maker, new coffee? :)

I had the best day with you, today.

It's been an amazing couple of days. I have incredible friends. I can't thank God enough for placing them in my life. Saturday night I got to go out for dinner with my girlfriends to Shoguns! It was a good time! & then on Tuesday (my actual birthday), I got to go to breakfast with my family (except my dad, he had to work) at Mimi's cafe. It was so good, and their hot chocolate is amazing!! :D & then that night my friend took me out to dinner at Applebee's and then he took me to Tutti Frutti for yogurt afterwards. I had such a great time! :) he's such a nerd, it's awesome. Lol. Here are a few pictures from the past couple of days.. birthday gifts, &good times. :)

His Bride

I believe that God intended us as women to be His bride. I believe that God wants to romance us in a way that NO MAN can do. & I believe that we should fall in love with Jesus before we try to fall in love with anyone else. Yes, God wants us to be with a man. The bible says that man was not created to be alone, but I believe that we don't know true love until we know God's love. & His love isn't something we will ever begin to even comprehend, but I believe that it's the greatest joy one can have. These next two videos have really changed my perspective when it comes to waiting for that guy to come along. I pray that you will be empowered and moved by these videos. I pray that God will show you a little glimpse of what He has in store for you if you just wait for Him. <3 Enjoy, Xoxo.

This second video has subtitles so that you can really grasp the message in case you miss something. <3

My First Tattoo

"..We are His portion and He is our prize, drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes, if grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking. So Heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet kiss, and my heart turns violently inside of my chest, I don’t have time to maintain these regrets, when I think about, the way He loves us.."

This was the first Christian song I listened to that really touched me. It's basically been my anthem for about 3 years now. I thought about this tattoo for a while before I got it. It's definitely something very special to me and I don't think I'll ever regret getting it. :) People always ask me if it hurt and honestly, it felt good. It's so hard to describe the feeling, everyone describes it differently. It hurt, but it felt kinda good haha!

Oh yeah, I have insomnia.

I can't ever have a good sleep. It's 2:15am and I have to be up for school in a couple of hours. Joy. :) I think I'll pull an all nighter since right after school I'll be going to a meeting and I'll get home at around 9pm, I'll knock out then. :) I'll just blog all night long. Xoxo!
