Exciting Weekend!

I am so glad that Friday is finally here and that this particular Friday is here. Kyle and I are headed to Auburn for the weekend. I am going to the game with my parents....still not sure that I will be glad with the outcome but maybe the game won't be as bad as I think. I am going to get to see my parents and my brother as well as some of my cousins. I am so excited! This is the first weekend we have actually had plans in a while. So I am sure that is adding to my excitement. On a side note, I did finally get the bobbin wound this week! Thanks to my crafty friend Ashley Gentry I found a website to look up helpful videos on sewing. So hopefully next week I will actually thread the steps guys:) Have a great weekend!

Adventurous or Foolish

For sometime now I have been wanting to learn how to sew. So after much debating on if I should take the big plung into the sewing world I decided to give in. Saturday morning I got up and went to Hancock Fabrics. Everyone was very nice and helpful. They set me up with a good sewing machine and all the necessities and off I went. Well Sunday I get the sewing machine out to start learning how to use it. I open up the directions and they seem easy enough. I start by loading the spool to transfer the thread to the bobbin. I followed the directions word for word and still the thread would wind loose on the bobbin every time. After several tries I began to wonder what I had gotten myself into. I really don't want to give up on the dream yet so I have decided that it is time to call for back up. I am going to find someone to help me get started. I do not yet know who the lucky person will be but my search has begun. Hopefully, in the near future I will be able to post pictures of me sewing a straight line!

Huge Praise!

I think most of you know about my neck pain but in case you do not here is the story. A little over a 1 1/2 ago my neck locked up. Apparently all the stress of our wedding manifested itself in my neck. After about a month the pain went away. Well, at the being of July my neck pain came back. This time it was due to the stress of moving....I really did not think I was that stressed out but whatever. So anyway long story short after a little over 2 months of chiropractor appointments several times a week I am healed. I prayed so much for healing because the pain was so bad and God was faithful. I feel so much better! Praise God for his healing touch!

So this was our first holiday in Huntsville. I did have one breakdown right before the Auburn game on Saturday. I really wanted to be at the game and I wanted to see my family on Sunday. The only hard part about our move is just not being so close to my family anymore. Other than the small breakdown I had a good relaxing weekend. Friday after work I went to Birmingham to visit with one of my bestfriends, Laura and her family. I love hanging out with them. Saturday I came back and watched the games with Kyle. Sunday and Monday we mostly just hung out around the apartment. Kyle's family did come over Sunday night for dinner. This was the first time they have visited us and seen our apartment. It was good to have visitors. This weekend was also big because because we officially began our house search. I am a little nervous because of how permanent that seems but it will be nice to get to settle into a house and actually use the gifts we got for our wedding a year and a half ago! So hopefully we will find something that will feel right. But until then I am enjoying our apartment and the pool we have at the apartment. I am ready for fall but I am loving the pool!
