Has it been a week?

Oops! Sorry friends, I was doing so good blogging too! Oh well. I got busy this week. I had to get ready for my friend Tyler's wedding this weekend, and go to Tuscaloosa to start packing up my apartment (I am moving in 8 days!!).

This won't be long but I wanted to tell yall I finished my 2nd book of the summer. This is a huge accomplishment for me because I am NOT a reader. I think it is very therapeutic and this summer MIGHT have turned me into a reader. We shall see. I am very picky about books. I have to read inspirational,  feel-good, make your life better books. 

I already told yall I read "Heaven is for Real" which was phenomenal. I think everyone needs to read this one!!!! I could have read it in one sitting.

I just finished "Rachel's Tears" which is about Rachel Scott, the first person shot and killed during the Columbine Shootings. She had such a heart for Jesus and this book is written by her parents describing how on fire Rachel was for the Lord. It also contains some of her journals that she wrote during high school. I would say this one is a must read. HOWEVER, the first chapter does talk alot about the shootings and after I read the first chapter, I had nightmares. I think this is because I was by myself at my apartment that night AND because I am a teacher. I was slightly terrified to pick up the book again, but I did, and I am so glad I finished it! However, there is your warning. The good part is that it only talks about the shootings in the first chapter, then it focuses on Rachel's life. Very good book!

When I finished Rachel's Tears, I immediately went to Barnes and Noble to get my next book. Is it weird that I got all excited to go get the new book? Am I a loser now? haha jk! Anyways, I watched the Jaycee Dugard special interview with Diane Sawyer last weekend on Dateline and they talked about her book that she wrote and I knew I wanted to read it. So, that is the new book I am reading now! If you haven't heard, it is called A Stolen Life. I have only read the first chapter, I am very excited to get more into it!

Ok, time to go get ready for the rehearsal dinner. Yay wedding weekend!

The Bride, Tyler, and I in college!!!
Congrats Tyler and Cale!!! Love you both!


  1. Hope y'all have a great time at all the wedding festivities!
