Taking a step out of my comfort zone..

So, the Lord just continues to amaze me everyday. As some of you know, when Josh and I first got married it was a hard move for me out to Cartersville. Even though I was with my best friend and the man I love and only anywhere from 35 minutes to an hour away from my family and friends, I just felt SO far away. It was hard, but I knew that I had to trust God through it. After not feeling so involved and a part of the church we were attending, we decided to look around and see what else we could find. The Lord led us to try Tabernacle Baptist Church. It was more like a church that we were both raised in and we LOVED that it had Sunday School classes. We have started getting involved in that and are really loving our class that we are in now. Josh and I really feel like that is where we need to be right now. Surprisingly, I actually did something that required me to step out of my comfort zone. I went to the women's league bible study sign up in Cartersville- all by myself!! I was immediately comforted when I walked in and saw my first sunday school teacher and my current teacher. I found a bible study that sounded right for me. It is a Beth Moore study- LOVE HER! It is called a woman's heart and it is a look into the Tabernacle. It started last week and I know that this is the study God wants me to be in. The homework is a lot but I find myself fascinated at what I learn with each day. I know the Lord is going to reveal so much to me through this Bible Study. I am doing it with a group of about 7 ladies and with my being the youngest and the only one without a child YET...I know I am going to learn so much from them. I am so excited about what God has in store for me! Alrighty...thats about it. God is so awesome :)

So this past weekend was filled with birthday celebrations! We started it out doing dinner at my parents house for Chrissi, Josh, Tonya and Natalie...we have lots of birthdays in September! We cooked out hamburgers and hotdogs, and had some yummy guac and desserts :) What a fun night with my family!!

Then on Friday we went out with some friends for chrissi and Josh's bdays. We started out eating at Frontera and then went bowling! Of course, that is always good times! Josh loves to bowl and I know he was so happy to finally get to bowl! I was horrible, but everyone else did really well, haha, oh well!!

Saturday was Josh's birthday!! He is 24 years old :) We woke up that morning and I told him what his surprise was...I was taking him to big canoe for the weekend. I had gotten a cabin for us until Monday. We decided to go to downtown cartersville for breakfast. We never go down there when the cute little shops and diners are open! We checked out Ross' Diner and LOVED it. It had such the small town diner atmosphere and some YUMMY biscuits and hashbrowns. We will be going back for sure!! We then packed up for Big Canoe and headed to our neice Natalie's 2nd birthday party! It was so much fun. They had a huge 15 ft waterslide in the backyard and LOTS of pizza :) They did a great job on her party! Unfortunately Josh and I had to leave early to make it to Big Canoe!

What an adventure we had that night...

We checked in at 4:30 and got our condo key and headed there! It was a cute little condo with a great view of the golf course and lake. It had a screened in porch and regular porch. BUT there was one problem...from the moment we walked in it just smelled musty and like it hadn't been opened up in about a year. AND to make it worse, the toilet had green mildew growing on it! YUCK! Josh and I knew we couldn't take it for the weekend. Our throats were already starting to hurt. So long story short after going back and forth with housekeeping and the lady on the emergency cell of big canoe, we finally told her we wanted a new place. So she came back up and said the only place they had available was a 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom house on top of the mountain. But we would have to pay for the upgrade and we could deal with trying to get that taken away next week, but she couldn't make us any promises. Ugh, what a pain. So at 7:30 we finally got checked in and headed out to dinner before going to our house bc we were starving!! We went to Appalachia Grill and had a YUMMY YUMMY dinner! We decided we could splurge bc of our rough night and it was Josh's birthday! haha :)

We then went to the grocery store to get some food for the rest of the weekend. Sunday was spent just enjoying one another. We did some exploring and went to the pool and lake and relaxed. Played some banangrams and watched Runaway Bride! Haha, I know it doesn't sound too exciting but we really had a blast. When we get into the routine of being here we sometimes forget how important that time with each other really is in a marriage! I love my husband and am so thankful for him!! He does so much to take care of me and soon to be Jakson too! He works so hard and I am so blessed to be married to a man who loves me so much and takes care of my every need. I love him so much and can't wait to see what the Lord continues to do in his life. He is going to be a daddy in a couple of months and I can't wait to watch him :) I LOVE YOU JOSH!!

Monday we woke up and were lazy with each other and then checked out and headed home to get our pups!! We then went back to andrew and tonya's to take advantage of the slide that was still at their house!

Phew, What a wonderful weekend!!

My First Baby Shower for Jakson

This weekend I had my first baby shower. It was thrown by Chrissi, Ashley, Tonya, Summer and Tricia. They did such an awesome job! It was at 10 am, so we had yummy breakfast food! The decorations were brown and blue and were sooo cute! It is things like this that make me feel so very blessed :) We got so many great presents! Some of which include my baby sling, bouncer, pack and play, stroller, backpack carrier, crib, decorations, toys, bedding, books and essentials for me and Jakson! I love my family and friends and am so thankful for them and all that they do for Josh and I!!

Jakson sure is starting to get big and strong. This morning he discovered the right place to kick my ribs :) He is always making me laugh bc he is always on one side of my stomach. It always looks like a have a lump on one side.

This is a busy and exciting week! Thursday morning we have our 28 week appointment and it is my big sister's b-day! We are doing dinner at my parents house to celebrate Josh, Chrissi, Natalie, and Tonya. September is a big month for our family! Then on Friday we are going out for Chrissi's bday with some friends for dinner and bowling. Saturday is Natalie's bday party and is also Josh's birthday! I have a surprise for him for the weekend that I think he will enjoy...and I can't wait :)
