So Much To Say!

18 04 2010

Oh bloggers, I have been a bad, bad blogette. Lack of posts, lack of commenting, but honestly…

I have been living and LOVING life!!

And I cannot apologize for that! The thing is: with soccer, schoolwork, the BOY, and just everyday living, blogging sometimes HAS to take a backseat, and that’s OKAY!

I am SO glad to get an opportunity to REST today. I had no plans, NO homework, nothing. It was absolutely glorious.

I did some reading, went grocery shopping, went to the bookstore, and had a fabulous workout. So I didn’t do NOTHING; I just didn’t have a set “agenda.”

 I had a soccer game on Thursday and Friday, and have three more games this week! The life of a Student-Athlete.  But I wouldn’t have it any other way!!

I should probably share some photos!! 100_0092 100_0094

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

Well, it’s getting late! Love you guys!

Have a GREAT night!

I’m SO glad to hear you’re loving life and to see your lovely eats. I’m especially a fan of the Clif zbar… I had the same one for a snack the other night. 😉 Keep it up, girl!

That Cobb Salad looks amazing!! And I am loving your grocery haul- I have to go myself soon! 😀

I love that new Pure Fitness water by crystal light. Stevia is so much better! Also, my favorite thing to do with the cliff z-bars is to take the chocolate brownie and dip it in peanutbutter. ITS AWESOME!
Love that verse. Thanks for the encouragement.
