Well as of March 9th 2010, I am officially 26.....
Dun Dun Dun.
I'M OLD!!!

Jill was nice enough to gather some of my closest friends for a birthday dinner!
It was so good to have a few
of the people that I love surrounding me for my bday.
There were unfortunately a few missing, and were surely missed.
But it was a great night.

In attendance were:
Jill and Cam, Matt and Stacie, Adam and Shanelle, and Matt and I.

Thanks everyone, for being there! =)

My Venture To Ventura...

I recently ventured to California to Visit this one:
I took a break after leaving N.P.S
and before starting my new job, so rather than sitting at home for a week, I of course decided to head to Cali.
Kim unfortunately had to work the whole week (she
is a nanny) So the majority of the weekend was spent with these little guys:
(plus 2 more)

I was lucky to have a free place to stay, so complaining about kids 24-7 would
have been very ungrateful. (right?)
There is one person that got a bit of my private complaints, and that was this kid:

He was nice enough to get some friends together for a night hike so that Kim and I could get away from the kids for a bit =) (haha much needed)
It was a super fun hike that led to a cool cave and waterfall and it was fun to meet a couple more of Kim's Ca
lifornia friends!
The rest of the week was spent shopping,
annying, (is that a word?),
massages, pedicures, eating,
playing with kids, beach and so on.

Nate was once again to the rescue a
nd snatched me away from the kids on my last night in Cali. Don't get me wrong, I just LOVE kids, and these ones are freaking adorable, but I could only take so much of them on my little vaca/getaway. We headed out and went and saw When in Rome. Cute movie, very random and weird, but funny. Not to mention we were 2 of 4 people in the whole theater!! The best part though was definitely the company. =) It was definitely a great way to end my stay in California!

I Stand All Amazed.....

I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me,

Confused at the grace that so fully he profers me.

I tremble to know that for me he was crucified,

That for me, a sinner, he suffered, he bled and died.

Oh, it is wonderful that he should care for me Enough to die for me!

Oh, it is wonderful, wonderful to me!

I marvel that he would descend from his throne divine

To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine,

That he should extend his great love unto such as I,

Sufficient to own, to redeem, and to justify.

Oh, it is wonderful that he should care for me Enough to die for me!

Oh, it is wonderful, wonderful to me!

I think of his hands pierced and bleeding to pay the debt!

Such mercy, such love, and devotion can I forget?

No, no I will praise and adore at the mercy seat,

Until at the glorified throne I kneel at his feet.

Oh, it is wonderful that he should care for me Enough to die for me!

Oh, it is wonderful,

(Oh, it is wonderful!

Oh, it is wonderful),

wonderful to me!
