Blessed: divinely or supremely favored; fortunate

[bles-id; especially for 3, 7 blest]
3.  divinely or supremely favored; fortunate: to be blessed with a strong, healthy body; blessed with an ability to find friends. 

Wow... I have no idea how to write you, all I know to say is I am blessed!  To the core of my being I feel spoiled by Jesus!!  For the past 6 months I have been staffing a school named Call2All with YWAM.  And for the past 2 months I've been leading a team here in Orange County, California.  And we have made it!  This week was our debrief week, where we relax, thank the Lord for all He's done, bless each other, relax some more, & have fun!  So for our relaxing part we went to Skinsations Spa in Tustin, CA.  And let me tell you, it was everything I could ever dream up.  Personal robes & sandals, hot or cold sweet tea, personal bath, everything candle lit, an hour facial, an hour massage, AND a nap room!  I felt so spoiled with my girls.  We had such a blast being there, and giggling like 5 year old's.  It was just what we all needed (and of course wanted, hehe).

Then as I told you yesterday, we headed off to Universal Studios Hollywood.  AGAIN! I felt like a kid.  We went on rides from the Simpsons, to Jurassic Park, to 4D King Kong.  We took a tour of where many of the Stages for filming are, and found out many fun secrets.  We watched a live show with actors from CSI & Pirates of the Caribbean in it.  We filled our tummies with Dippin Dots & Frosty Lemonades.  Like I said... so fun.  All of these things were completely amazing, but what was the best was sharing it with my amazing friends.  Erin, Rami, & Rosey are some of the most incredible women I have ever met.  It's been such a privilege leading them, growing with them, learning from them, walking hand in hand, side by side, through the good & the bad, the happy & the sad, and claiming victory at the end of a season.  There is nothing like sisters in Christ & I am so proud of them!!

Needless to say, it has been a fantastic week with fantastic people.  Now! Off to packing my bags and getting ready for the trip home to Kona!  I will talk to you lovely readers soon.  Say a safety prayer for us if you think about it.  God bless!

i heart thursdays!

Hello lovely readers!!  I trust that your week is going along just fine & dandy.  Not too long before the weekend is here!  Do you have anything fun planned?  I am off today to hang out at Universal Studios with some of my friends (first time to go!!) & then when Saturday roles around I am hopping on a plain and heading back to Kona, Hawaii to debrief with my whole school!  I have had such an amazing time being here in California (& certainly enjoy the weather so much better here), but it will be so good to see my friends back at the beach ;).

As my week progressed, I noticed there were things I just absolutely loved & wanted to put together a day that I could share them with you!  So welcome to the weekly "i heart thursdays!" blog post.  I hope the things you find in here inspire you, encourage you, and give you a good giggle & even something to ponder on.

Patterns of Life

 I absolutely love patterns!!  I think they can brighten up any room & make an outfit just pop.  I especially love that matching different patterns seems to be a lovely trend happening, what fun!  Here are some that I have found around and wanted to share with you. I hope they bring some joy to your life ;).

wrap around & button up!

I love hitting the jackpot at stores like Salvation Army & Goodwill.  Somedays you just can't find a single thing, then other days you find just what you were looking for!  I walked in and one of the first things I see up on the shelves are 3 wicker baskets full of yarn for only 89 cents!!! I was more than stoked.  I got some amazing colors for fall & winter so I can start crocheting my hands off making scarves & head warmers, and learning how to do hats & more fun things!!  I just can't wait :).

So!  The other day I was able to take a whole day off and got to finish some projects I was working on.  This is one of the scarves that finally got done!!  This was done with a Double Crochet, and fastened together with one wooden button for easy on and off access.  I cannot wait til the colder weather starts rolling in and I can wear this one :)!!
Here is the other thing I was able to finish, my first Head Warmer!!
