Guys. January just happened.
Well technically, January is still happening, but it’s time for a quick monthly highlights post. Are y’all ready? *dives in*
-I had a good friend from SC come stay for a few days. We go to do some epic things like staying up until five in the morning (I don’t know HOW), going to the mall, and watching chick flicks like Pride and Prejudice and A Walk To Remember (and of course I cried during that movie who wouldn’t?). Miss you, Amy!
-Speaking of movies… I also rotted my brain watching Unbroken, Queen of Katwe, and I Am Not Ashamed. WHY MUST I WATCH MOVIES THAT MAKE ME CRY??? *blows nose*
-My sister and I have become part of an awesome Bible Study. We absolutely LOVE our weekly meetings, and not just because there’s lots of sugar involved. =) It’s amazing, being able to study the Bible with other girls and make new friends. *hugs my bible study*
-Imagine this: five kids, two parents, and one dog in a van driving around the Olympic Peninsula. Well… It happened. Once I take the pictures off my camera,, I’ll photo dump you all. But for now, enjoy the sunset. =)
RUNAWAY. There’s a lot of fun going on, but I just realized that both Kyle and I… Well, we didn’t exactly, er, plan ahead when the whole running away thing happened (aka I didn’t think it through as well as I thought my brilliant self had). So we’re
sitting on a park bench wondering what to do figuring that out, but besides that, everything is going well, in my opinion. *dodges Connor’s glare* And because you guys are the best, I have a snippet to share. =)
*thinks for a moment* *decides to give another snippet*
So far I’ve read… Four measly books. I FAILED AT READING THIS MONTH. But considering I read one of my new favorite series and am currently enjoying The Language of Sparrows and Sense and Sensibility, it’s been a good month for reading. =)
*flails for all eternity* THESE BOOKS GUYS. Like… I COULDN’T STOP READING I READ THEM ALL IN FIVE DAYS. *rubs eyes at lack sleep* But seriously, rarely does a book change me. These books DID. They challenged me to look at how I’m using my time, where I’m putting my hope in, and they encouraged me to live for the King of Kings. Did I mention that the plot and characters (PARVIN YES) all earned a gazillion out of five stars? =)
If I had to pick one word to describe this novel it would be amazing. This book kept me reading for about three days until the very end. It was a sweet, heartwarming read that yanked me all over World War II and left me shutting it with a sigh. *sighs thinking of the pretty book*
The amazing Hannah of Furious Ever Afters
helped me figure out how to make an Apple playlist on my blog… So voila! My very first monthly playlist!
How was YOUR month? Tell me aaallll about it. Did you watch any movies that made you grab a tissue? If not, watch Matthias’s video. How about read any good books? Listen to any amazing music? And did you make these super easy yet super yummy treats?
