every 4-6 weeks

A lil while ago my bestfriend got married and moved to Florida!  Altho I hate that she has left me, she is super happy ...  So that makes me happy!  If anyone knows Michaelin ... you know she makes things happen!!!!  She has arranged w/ her job here in Michigan to come home every 4-6 weeks and work a crazy weekend w/ 12 hour days!!!  The best thing about it .... I get to see my Mikes basically once a month!!  She leaves tomorrow :( but today was my day :)  We went to church, then to the Tigers game w/ Keri, shopping of course, pinochle w/ her parents, PF Changs for dinner (no shock there), and then a movie w/ her cousins!  What more could you ask for in a day ;)  Here are some pics at the game!

Psalm 62:1&2

My soul finds rest in God alone; 
my salvation comes from him.

He alone is my rock and my salvation; 
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

Arizona is lucky too!

Yesterday after work all the girls from Dr Bs went to Fishbones to say goodbye to Amanda!  I have been at my doctors office for 2 years now ..... and I can honestly say ... it just wont be the same w/o her!  She is leaving us for Arizona!  It's beyond my comprehension why anyone would go to a hotter climate ..... but she is super excited!  I'm happy for her ..... but she will be super missed!  I didn't take any pictures yesterday ..... so here are some other ones of us!  

We took so many pictures this day ..... it was ridiculous! 
haha we couldn't stop laughing everytime we looked at this picture .... she is so 'special'
Ok .... at this point we were just running out of ideas!

The Captain & MC

Yesterday afternoon I got my first massage ever at Saks Fifth Avenue! Christie and I decided to make a day of it ;) Shopping, dinner, and a massage!!!! I have to say .... at first the thought of someone rubbing my feet did not sound appealing (I was fine w/ everything else). BUT now that everything is said and done .... I loved it! So relaxing! Thanks MC ;)

They are SO cute

WEll it's been a few days since I have posted a new blog ...  Having last week off work made blogging much MUCH easier!  SOMETIMES I get a lil lucky and have some time to shoot out a quick post ;)  I really like posting when I have fun PICTURES to go w/ my stories ..... however, I do not have a camera crew following me around documenting my life!  AND most of the pictures I take are of my nephew and niece!  I NEED my own children HAHA .... but until then .... these kids will do ;)

I Love Sundays

Ok .... so Keri and Alina were over today .... and as always Alina was smiling and laughing the whole time.  I tried to catch some of it on video, but every time I took my camera out Alina got so distracted.  I have never met a more nosey lil girl ;)  Anyways .... here is one of the videos ....

Oh and ...... yesterday was my parents wedding anniversary (thank you Aunt Linda for the reminder ;)  Right now mom & dad are in Romania on one of their many mission trips!  ~~~I love you two and am so proud of you!  You are in my prayers ;)

"where I land"

One of my favorite artists in the world is JJ Heller.   I was listening to her music this morning during my devotions and the lyrics to one her the songs stood out to me ...

And I am lost for words
You’re more than I deserve
And when I cannot stand
You are where I land

This describes perfectly how I have felt the last few days ... weeks .... months ... years!  I am so thankful for God's grace on my life that I cannot even describe it!  No matter what I go thru and no matter how hard it is .... when I fall .... He is "where I land"

First things first ...

Today I should be in Chicago!  I have the week off work so my friend and I planned a two night trip to The Windy City .  It got cancelled a few days ago when her boyfriends grandma passed away and she needed to be here for him.  We of course are in the process of planning a different time to go, but in the meantime I need to keep busy!  I enjoyed rollerblading so much last night that I decided to go again today!  It's very different starting off rollerblading at an apartment complex on the second floor as opposed to the house on Brookshire, but I manage.  Another good thing about not being in Chicago .... Tonight I get to go to my brothers and friends soccer game and then to dinner to catch up with an old friend ;)

BUT first things first ......

Look at me go!

OK .... 

I just got home from rollerblading and the first thing I did was go on blogger.com to see what my sisters, family and friends have posted for today! I love it! Sooooo ... since I pretty much go to this site everyday ... I decided to create my own blog. I wanted my first post to be a super good one! I don't know what really qualifies as a good post .... but I thought pictures would be a good idea! After I decided this I realized that I do not have any recent pictures! So instead of pictures of me ..... here are pics of some of the kids that bring so much joy to my life!
