Weekend Recap / 8

6 Jan

Well Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! It’s been a joyous season and I hope you’ve been able to have a few happy adventures as well. Thanks for giving me a little break on the blog. Bradley and I had a busy 2 weeks traveling to Indiana for Christmas and coming back just before the new year. We spent New Year’s Eve with Brooke and Levi, which was a ton of fun.

IMG_4840Thursday afternoon it started to snow and continued into the night.

IMG_4865 IMG_4904 IMG_4869 IMG_4866This is how I look when it snows. My husband can attest to the fact that when it snows I’m like a little girl who got all she ever wanted on Christmas morning.

IMG_4861Last night we watched the Colt’s game with one of Bradley’s friends. If you watched the game or heard about it, you know it was quite the emotional ride. I’m definitely a fan, but I’m not as much of a fan as these guys. 🙂

IMG_4919 IMG_4908Thank you Colts for pulling that win off. You made these two guys very happy!

What was your weekend like? Football, food or fitness?


Weekend Recap / 6

9 Dec

This past weekend was amazing! It felt like Christmas, birthday and vacation all in one. This is mostly because of the snow that came down yesterday. You can ask Bradley, I was basically giddy all day. 🙂


And I was happy to have gotten these guys at Target right before Thanksgiving. So cute!IMG_2095

On Saturday, my friend Chelsea and I launched the facebook page for a new project we are working on called The Gathering Project. It’s a day long workshop in January where local artisans will be teaching guests about bringing warmth into winter through their individual skills: wreath making, table styling, lettering and typography and drink mixing. We are so excited!IMG_0025

I also started working on Christmas present for a few of my friends. However, since they are all reading this now, I can’t post any more pictures than these few below. 😉 I love making gifts for those special people in my life. Homemade presents are the best!IMG_0094 IMG_0446IMG_6060

As you can see, the Sharpie Therapy of the day also had to do with snow. 🙂 Such truth in this verse.
IMG_7224Did you have fun this weekend? Maybe making gifts or wishing you were enjoying the snow? I’d love to hear all about it.

Weekend Recap

25 Mar

This past weekend was a busy one. On Friday, B and I saw Olympus Has Fallen in theaters. It was good not great, basically a mix of Air Force One and the first Die Hard movie. (so says B) So appealing to me because I love those movies but so much with the on-screen violence. ehh.

Saturday started early with a conference in West Virginia. In the spring, my organization, Generation Joshua, will travel around to conferences and conduct educational government teen track for teens. This teen track is called iObject and teaches the teens how a Grand Jury works. All the staff members of GenJ (what we call Generation Joshua for short), participated this conference. It was pretty fun to have everyone playing different witnesses, prosecutors, judge and officers.

The case that we presented for them, they get to play the Grand Jury, it is set in the 1930s in Chicago. Essentially, there is a murder and they kids have to question witnesses, look at evidence and determine who is guilty for what crimes.

As you can tell in the pictures below, each witness/character had a different personality, accent, and attire. Quite the comedy routine.

iobject1 iObject2I played an Italian chef who encountered one of the suspects as they ran through my kitchen. My name was Marcela and I was known for my Chicken Florentine. 🙂

Sunday, I wasn’t feeling so well. Waking up with a headache, we attended the latest church service. Then at night we met up with friends and ate bbq chicken, decorated eggs (for Easter!) and played Phase 10.

Here are some of our eggs! It was my first time decorating them. Quite the experience.


eggs2I really like the marbled one and the teal one that says “Life” on it.

Also, these last pics are from this morning, but we got snow!!! I’m pretty stoked. This NY girl’s heart was full. We were able to come in to work late and in casual wear. Yes!! What did you do last weekend?
