life lately

My life lately has been very fun and busy. It is summer which means many special memories are being made with friends and family! I have been able to accomplish many of my goals for this summer, which I am extremely happy about. Here are a few things I've been up to....

Currently Reading..."Kisses for Katie." It is a book about a Christian girl who just graduated high school and wanted to go on a missions trip to Africa with her mom right after she graduated. She fell in love with Africa and the people around her that she was able to bless and help. She felt like God really was calling her to go and serve there, so she did. Everything fell into place and she was able to go to Africa and be a preschool teacher because a proper education is very poor there and not common, so she wanted to help any child she could. She continues to talk about her life in Africa and her struggles and blessings there. She talks about how God keeps working in her life. I love this book so much because for me it is like a mini devotional story. It is an amazing book and I love the way she writes. I would encourage you to go and buy it, believe me you won't regret it.

Watching... I am completely loving old British movies. I love almost everything I see on BBC which is an old channel that plays British TV series. My absolute favorite movie right now is North & South, ah it is just so good!

Proud of... I have been totally committed to my 30 day fitness challenges! My goal for these next two months have been to strengthen my muscles and become more healthy. and to be honest I keep surprising myself on how much I love the feeling of the sweat dripping down my face because that is the feeling of a successful day!

Loving... My special times with my friends and family. It seems like everyday I've been able to hang out with friends, go to the movies, visit the beach, and go shopping (my favorite ha-ha).



 
-spent time with an old friend, Marisa.
-went for a jog/run, and it felt so good, (I need to do that more often).
-hung out with my friend Amy & Starbucks.
-i saw Despicable me 2, and it was amazing
-my sis and I before the angels game for the Fourth.
-a peach iced tea that felt so refreshing especially in this summers heat.

  2. Wow, I loved this post. Seems you've been having loads of fun recently. I really must go and see Despicable Me 2, if it lives up to the hype, but I still haven't seen the first one. In fact, I'm British, and I hadn't heard of that film you mentioned either; I definitely need to catch up on my movie watching. Just found your blog...I'm your newest follower! :') x Olwyn
