It's Official!!!

I am an OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST!!!!! I PASSED my exam!!!!!! I am super excited!! This is one of the main reasons I have taken a break from blogging. It has been a very long journey to this point, but it has been worth it! I have missed all of my blogging friends and look forward to catching up on your blogs soon. So many of you have encouraged me through this journey the last several months and I thank you all so much! Never give up on your dreams and always believe in yourself!!!

Have a great weekend!!!!!!

On my way to church to sing with the praise team!

Sunday Social: All About Thanksgiving

All about Thanksgiving

Favorite Thanksgiving Memory: 
Ha! When the sweet potatoe casserole caught fire in the over!! We got it out fast enough to where we just scrapped off the burnt marshmallows and then just replaced them. I remember my sister getting so upset because that was her favorite dish...

Favorite Thanksgiving Food: 

The turkey of course and the pecan pie!!

What is a Thanksgiving Tradition you and your family have? 

We would always put up the Christmas tree and all the other decorations in the house.

Show us a favorite Thanksgiving picture(or 5) from years past

Sadly, I don't have any with me right now. They are all at my parents house and they live about 5 hours away.

What are you most looking forward to about this Thanksgiving?
 Hosting Thanksgiving Dinner at our house for the very first time! My parents and grandparents are driving up and Jon's family will be here too!! I'm also looking forward to spending our first Thanksgiving married! Last Thanksgiving which would have been our first, we were apart in different states as I completed an internship.

A little inspiration and High Five For Friday Linkup

Sorry again for my absence, I explained it in a late post yesterday called Relying on Him .

"Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, surely I will help you;
Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10 

I don't think I have shared this with you before, but I do my daily devotionals from a book by Joyce Meyer and Sarah Young, often times I will write a favorite verse that has really spoken to me or a quote from the author on an index card, punch a hole in it, put a ring through the hole and carry the index cards with me where ever I go.

High Five For Friday

1. The weather was just perfect this week!! I wish it would stay like this forever!! 

2. Went to Old Navy yesterday and bought a few really cute shirts!!

3. Found some great Goodwill finds!! I will share them on my Thrift Treasures post on Thursday! Here are some Thrifty Treasure posts from the last few weeks!!
Are you ready...
Thrifty Treasures
Thrifty Treasures: Coffee and Tea Bar

4. I enjoyed a Soy PSL the other day while I sat outside and just people watched! I love people watching :) Do you have a favorite place to people watch?

5. I'm just happy that it's finally the weekend and I will be spending it with my hubby :)

Relying on Him

Hello lovely readers!!

I'm sorry for my lack of posts this last week and the lack of comments, but I have needed to take care of some things recently. I hope to be back after next week! Reading inspirational quotes, bible verses as well as listening to music and fully relying on God's plan helps me during stressful times so I will try and share with you some of my favorites through this next week and a half. I have missed reading my favorite blogs and look forward to catching up when things start settling down.

Here is a recent favorite:

"I will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born" Isaiah66:9
"And my God will supply all [my] needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus" Philippians 4:19

Have a blessed day!

Fall Swap and High Five For Friday

 It's time to reveal my swap goodies!! My package came from Rachel over at Life as Mrs.

I love the earrings! I wore them as soon as I got the package as I was heading out the door and the caramel apple sugar babies didn't last long!

Thanks Rachel for the goodies!!! :)

Now it's time for High Five for Friday!!  Linking up with Lauren at From my Grey Desk .

1. Jon and I spend our first Halloween as a married couple at the Halloween Festival at church. Last year during Halloween I was in Florida completing an internship!

2. I reached 100 followers!! I'm so excited and thank you to all my readers!! I emailed the 100th follower about the prize! Hope to hear from her soon!! :)

3. I hosted my first blog hop!! You can see that here! Link up and meet someone new!

4. Amy did a guest post for me on Wednesday! It was perfect and I thank her for helping me out!!

5. I started running this week!!  I'll fill you in on the progress. I'm trying to find more ways to save money and I think I'm going to give up my gym membership and do things at home. I hate the gym anyway and I really want to run a half marathon some day. :) I think I can do it!!


I hope everyone had a wonderful week!! Have any exciting plans for the weekend?
