Birthday Recapppppp :)

So last Friday was my 23rd and golden birthday WOOOOHOOOO!! :) It was quite a blast!! I actually spent my birthday being on a retreat with my church's youth group. It was so great. Because of this, The Hubs and I celebrated my b-day on Thursday.

I woke up in the morning to a living room fully decorated with balloon covered walls and a golden inspired table set-up. The Hubs made my favorite breakfast item, panakeukken (a dutch pancake??). All I know is my family has made them forever and they are the best!! Topped off with some Simply Orange orange mango juice, another fav. So fun and yummy. I had school and work the rest of the day so we decided to go out to dinner to celebrate. Thanks to Living Social we got to go to Ruth's Chris Steakhouse for an amazing candlelite dinner, just us two :) The Hubs even bought me a birthday dress to wear! We had a steak and lobster dinner that was soooo declicious. Thanks to my expensive taste, lobster is one of my new favorite things. YUMMMM. After we had some friends over and played games. It was such a great day!!

The back has a zipper down the middle! I love zippers... :)

We were all in the same room!! That never happens.. it was definitely picture worthy.

Early Friday morning (my day of birth! :-o) The Hubs brought me to church to drop me off retreat. As we pulled up the whole youth group swarmed our car screaming and yelling birthday wishes. It was a bit over stimulating, but super cute all the same. It was really sweet of them. We drove all 5 hours up north to a little country town called Hamilton, Alabama. The place we went to was called Ramp. It is hard to explain what exactly the Ramp is but from what I know they hold conferences and special services on a regular basis but they also have regular services for regular attenders. They also have a website where they post all their services and they have podcasts and all the fun stuff too. Check out their website! The conference was sooo incredible and life changing for tons of people. It was such an awesome experience. Not only was my life changed forever but it was so cool to see the change happening in all the young people there. I LOVED IT! Definitely want to go back with the Hubs someday.

Sunday we went to church and had a great time as usual. Had a delicious Sunday lunch with a few of our favorite people and then came home and napped. Perfect :)

THEN on Monday night my Hubs comes out of the kitchen with this beauty.

I guess he hadn't had the chance to sing me Happy Birthday with candles yet so he was waiting and waiting for an opportunity to come up and that happened to be Monday night! Ha. Brownies and ice cream happen to be one of my favorite things so it was just so perfect and sweet. :)

Overall I had an unforgettable birthday full of sweet family and friends and amazing God time. I couldn't have asked for anything better :)

Much Love,

The second song in the Freedom - Music Monday series.

This song fits perfectly with a topic that has been prevalent at church lately. FREEDOM IS OURS in Jesus Christ. He wants to carry all our our worries, all of our burdens, ALL of our cares. He wants to fight all of our battles. We no longer have to "fight on our own" when we give ourselves to him.

2 Chronicles 32: 7 & 8 -
"7 Be strong and courageous. Be not afraid or dismayed before the king of Assyria and all the horde that is with him, for there is Another with us greater than [all those] with him.
8 With him is an arm of flesh, but with us is the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles."

We can look at Assyria as the world. There is nothing that the Lord can't fight against for us. NOTHING. Just embrace the peace that He gives us through this freedom. 

"I lay my troubles down, I am ready for you now"

Oh la la.

Just stopping by to tell you that I added a new lovely item to my shop today.

Oh la la :)

I love this one so much that I HAD to add to my own collection. Oh the options I can wear it with :)

On another note. I am currently in Georgia with The Hubs' soccer team! They are playing in Gainsville tonight and then the Men's Soccer team plays in Marietta tomorrow. It is a full blown soccer weekend for me! :)

Much love,

Bedroom Prettiness

So I was surfing Etsy (which I realized is easily never-ending) and I came across these AMAZING pillows.

Photo Credits
Aren't they to die for!? Gosh.. I love them. I think they would be just perfect on my bed. And best of all? The Hubs agrees :). I am determined to make my own version on these lovlies. I am thinking more of a linen with less curly letters. It will be my bedroom prettiness :)

You are Free

Starting today I am going to do a series of Music Mondays focused on freedom. The freedom that our Almighty gives us. It has been a very present topic in my life lately and I want to spread to joy that it brings, or should I say...freedom!!

So I just want to remind you today that with him, you are free!!! Plain and simple.

"All that I need, YOU ARE...
Jesus, because of you I'M FREE"

Who Loves Birthdays?

Me me!! I do! I do! Well as you know, it was my hubby's birthday a week ago today and today I am finally getting around to writing the recap post! (Yes, one week later :/ ) Anywho! We had a great time :) I say we like it was my birthday... oops.. I am telling you, I love them that much! No but really I just love when The Hubs is happy and he was so loving his birthday :) He has been so busy with work and school and he just seized the day and RELAXED, ha it was great.

We actually thought he was going to be out of town on his actual birthday so we celebrated a few weeks ago with breakfast in bed, a lunch out, swimming, and the movies, you know, the whole sha-bang. However, during that birthday celebration we got a call that he would no longer be gone on his birthday!! Yippee!! So my lucky husband actually got two birthday celebrations. On his real birthday, he got breakfast-in-bed, our tradition!! We had Peach French Toast, a family recipe, its really the best!! It sounds weird but everyone that eats it just about dies from the deliciousness. :)
mmm mmm good!

Later we went out to lunch at our favorite Mexican lunch and then went to Sports Academy so see if we could discover and fun finds to buy with his birthday money. He came out with these bad boys :) I love that he wanted workout equipment for his birthday!! Ha oh man.

We topped off the night with a light dinner and Peach Raspberry Torte, YUM. (I will be doing a how-to post on the later.) It was a peach filled day, which is quite alright because The Hubs LOVES fruit. We watched Battle:Los Angeles and overall had a really great day together.

soooo goooood
Then..... on Sunday we had a really small and laid back surprise birthday party at Chill, our fav frozen yogurt place. :) He was very surprised!! It was hilarious to see his reaction. So great :) I think The Hubs had a really fun time. Who wouldn't? Great friends, great ice cream er.... frozen yogurt. All in all it was a great birthday celebration(s)!!! Here is my handsome man during the party.

On another high note, its Friday!! Which I am very excited about! Tonight we are going to go see Contagion. It looks sooooo good :) Tomorrow The Hubs and I get to spend the ENTIRE day together, :D and then Sunday we have our church's anniversary celebration. Should be some fun times!!

Blessings :)

The Only One

Music Monday and Happy Labor Day!!!

This one is from a new band I found, The Museum. The song is called "The Only One". Its is love song to the Almighty One. :)

Down here in Mobile we are on day 3 of facing Tropical Storm Lee. There have been some tornado watches/warnings but mostly just A LOT or rains. Like "whoa I can't see outside" kind of rain. The Hubs and I are doing great but just keep the people of the gulf coast in your prayers because there is a lot of flooding going on. I myself am just ready to be able to venture out of my apartment!! :)

Despite the weather, I am determined to have a great day off with the Hubs. I hope you all enjoy this day!!
