II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

What's been happenin...

Last Thursday, one of my good friends offered to have BOTH of my kiddos spend the night at her house! It was Grant's first time to ever spend the night with anyone (other than grandma). I wasn't sure how he'd do, but apparently he did just fine and definitely didn't want to come home early (I checked in with her before we went to bed for the night).

Anyway, since it was just the two of us, we decided to see if my parents wanted to join us for a double-date. We hardly ever get to do anything with them without the kids because 99% of the time, THEY are the babysitters. I had heard about a great deal going on at Zio's where 4 can eat for $19.99. It included 4 salads, unlimited bread, spaghetti-n-meatballs and chicken parmesean served family style. I was a little concerned that it might not be enough food since we were all very hungry (and I thought it might have been talking about 4 people=2 adults, 2 children) but WOW! We all ate until we were stuffed and then had enough to bring home to feed my whole family dinner the next night! Since we all drank water there..our total bill for all 4 of us was $ 21.67. LOVE A BARGAIN! After that we went to the movies and saw The Proposal, which was cute but not making it to my favorites list.
On Saturday Matt had to work ALL day (17 1/2 hours straight) so me and the kids loaded up some lawn chairs and went off to our town's freedom festival. They had a petting zoo and Brooklyn and I both decided to HOLD a SNAKE! The look on her little face is priceless! The whole time it was in her hands she was saying "okay, take it take it take it!"
Me on the other hand, I look like one of the girls off of The Price is Right like I'm posing with the fabulous prize! ha ha I promise, I wasn't enjoying it nearly as much as it looks like! So...in other news, I'm about to climb another rung on the ladder of age. 8 more days until my 31st birthday. Crazy! Either I've matured a LOT over the past year...or I just don't care anymore, but turning 31 is totally no big deal to me this year. I think once I hit 30...the whole "oh you're so young" thing was over instantly and now I'm just "in my 30's". Whatever. I'm just happy to be happy with who I am. God has CERTAINLY been busy in my life over the last year and I wouldn't go back to 29 for anything after what all I've discovered in the past 365 days!

30 was weird for me, 31 eh, 32 hard. It feels old to say 32.
