Insta- life lately...

life rearranged
Hey there!  Here is an insta-update on life lately...
We love game nights with the cousin's... Scott actually won at Clue this time.  
{competition just got real}

The Stouffer's had a pumpkin carving party in their back yard.  I enjoyed watching as I worked on a craft project of my own. 

I can't even tell you how long it had been since I saw this girl.  It was so good to catch up... loved this evening walking around Big Lots hearing about life, kids, love, and church. 

SWBC Fall Festival 2013 - I love these people.

By far my favorite costume of the evening is on the right.  Pastor Ryan dressed up as Dawson!  

Silly goose.

Halloween was spent with the porch light off, and a mean game of Rummikub.

We got to celebrate Jen's birthday - Japanese Steakhouse style!

I seriously don't know what I'd do without these coffee dates.

We got to meet and spend an afternoon with a new special lady.  So thankful for this time spent - can't wait for some more time to get to know her even more!

WE GOT THE CHAIRS DONE!! They turned out even more beautiful than I had imagined.  

Getting to skype with my brother and sister is one of my favorite things.  :)  I miss them.

This shirt has be written all over it - makes me laugh every time.

Ignite Conference 2013 was amazing!  Read more about it HERE

Lunch time with Cathy... I haven't worked at the bank for almost 3 years, yet she will forever be my work mom.  I cherish these moments with her.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the GSM room!!

This is Molly - looking as cute as can be.  This is one of her favorite poses.

Jadyn loves to play hair salon.  Usually it is her playing with my hair {which I love}... but she wanted her hair curled and I was delighted to get to curl these beautiful locks!

Mom and I went to some of our favorite flea markets in town and got some good stuff!

Those 'hot' 'cold' nobs kill me.. I don't know where they will end up - but I love them!

I turned another year older and got to celebrate with some of my favorite people.

Playing some mean ol' Yahtzee

I love decorating for Christmas!  Let's face it - it is the only season I really change anything about my decorations.  #creatureofhabit

Miss Olivia - she is so precious I can't even handle it.

We had a team building with our team and decorated cookies and then donated them to a local charity.  We had a blast! #iheartHR

Meeting with this lady is one of my favorite things.  I'm enjoying the beginning of what I know will be a long-lasting friendship.  I know the Lord is at work in my heart through this relationship.  #blessed

Prepping for one of my favorite days of the year... 9th annual Christmas party!

A great time was had by all.  We missed some dear friends who couldn't make it, though.

Our growth group merged with another for a Christmas sweater themed growth group session.  Yes - I'm wearing a tree skirt.  I have to give creativity credit to momma - I wanted to rave her closet for something good to wear and she didn't have anything.  Next thing I knew - she brought out the tree skirt.  It was perfect.

We had a cookie baking session - which lead to a trip down Jonathan's great collection binder.

So enjoyed watching this young lady play her little heart out at the orchestra concert.  

Last night we had our annual christmas party with our Launch crew.  We switched things up this year and had a mug exchange which was a lot of fun!  I'm so blessed by these people.  

I can't tell you how blessed I am to have this lady in my life.  The Lord has used her over and over again to challenge me.  Can't wait to see how He continues to use her to draw me closer to Himself.

There's the last couple of months for you - picture style.  What have you been up to?
