Today at church I was challenged. Pastor Matt started a new series called Revive. A strong reminder of how at Sandals we have been called to be REAL. I was challenged to be honest with myself, others and God. To put out there the secrets I hold that keep me from living the truth in love. That in order to be set free I need to share. So today I start wearing the bracelet given at church for me to write on. I wrote... Judgemental, Bitterness, and Fear ...the truth will set you free. John 8:32.

Exciting... Today was my first day working in Flip Flops. It has been almost 3 years since I had every Sunday off to go to church. So blessed to have a manager that lets me work every Saturday and have every Sunday off. Not the normal every-other-weekend. Anyways, I spent third service with 11 kids that are 18 months to 2 years. Very busy but fun! The kids are so cute and I loved all the hugs, diapers, and boogers.

August 30th.... Bridal Shower

This is my friend Lindsay. We met the first day of school. We have included each other in every milestone of our lives. Graduations, my wedding, and now her wedding. She is just the person in my life who I talk to maybe a couple times a year and send a card or two. But we are always there through the important times. Not too many people have a long time friend like that. We have grown apart but still share memories of playing house as kids. She the teacher and I the nurse. Who knew that one day the very thing we played would end up being our life. Anyways this is us...

At her shower they had a theme from the movie "Notting Hill". Very cute. We each had to color a shirt, either one she would like to see or one that was offensive like the "flat mate" in the movie. My mom and I decided to draw one of Jack's old shirts that have disappeared over time... We didn't win, but they got a laugh.

Late entry... But amazing experience!

Last friday Sandals Church had it's 2nd Annual Beach Baptism. It was amazing! Here are a few pics that I took and you should check out more at

Puppy Update....

So here is Sydney before her first hair cut. A true mop dog!

Now she can see. But we both agree that we liked to mop a lot. So don't plan on too many hair cuts.

Mined you she is still not even 6 pounds even when she did have all the hair.
Sydney wants you to know you can come and play any time...

So mom, Kevin and I picked Sydney up at Ontario Airport late last night. Had to show proof with my id and sign for her.

Isn't she so cute?!

This was her traveling buddy. Another puppy who came from Oklahoma to California and her new mom.

It was a fun drive home. She was so full of energy. Hungry and thirsty. And loved her new toys.

My puppy

SO... I pick her up at the airport this Friday. Can't wait. She is coming from Oklahoma. Went shopping today for puppy food, piddle pads, harness, leash, and a bunch of other small things.

Disneyland Fun Again...

Mom, Grandma and I went to California Adventure yesterday. Kevin met us there in the afternoon. Grandma is such a trooper. She went on just about everything. Really loved Soarin' Over California.

Then had a really fun dinner at Ariel's Grotto. We were the only table in the whole place that didn't have a little kid. So I filled in. Had my picture taken with Ariel and with other princesses. It was so chessy fun!

The food was really good too...

Grandma really enjoyed the parade.

Thanks for such a fun day!
