WHEN YOU CHECK YOUR FIT BIT AFTER CHURCH AND SEE THAT YOU'VE MADE 3,000 MORE STEPS, DURING THE SERVICE!!!
So a few Sundays ago, I looked at my Fitbit on the drive back in the church van and I said to my sister, this thing says I've made 4,000 steps already today, this is sooooooooooooo NOT accurate, I haven't even done anything today EXCEPT GO TO CHURCH!!! Then I was like, OH WAIT, I WENT TO CHURCH,IT ISACCURATE!!! Need a little more exercise in your life???? I suggested looking up a ONE-GOD-APOSTOLIC-CHURCH in your area!!! Whoop, whoop!!! :))))
Annnnnnnnnnd on THE 3rd day in NYC low and behold... I found Aaron...AKA: Spyder Man!!!
I got one of those drawings done of me...I wasn't to excited about it when I looked, I think she waaaaay exaggerated my figure...bahahaha...plus I wanted her to add in my heart-shaped glasses and she said she could, buuuuuut they were UGLY!!! I was like, NO YOU DID NOT JUST SAY THAT!!! Annnnnnnnnnd as IF HER drawing of my figure wasn't RIDICULOUS!!! LOL I did NOT bother hauling that back home with me!!! LOL
A LOT OF WALKING this day, wish I had a fit bit back then to see just how much we did!!!
In honor of my moms birthday, i hiked a really big, BIG MOUNTAIN today you guys!!!
I know I go hiking just about everyday, it's my form of excercise that I greatly enjoy, buuuuuut in honor of my mom I wanted to go above and beyond my usual hike!!! last time I did this one was in October and it took me 2.5 hrs to get up, today it only took me 1.5!!! an hour less...big improvement!! A grand total, with going up and down, breaks annnnnnnd talking to people, YES I LOVE TO TALK TO EVERYONE, you do not walk by MARY, without a greeting, hee, hee, for a grand total of 3 hrs! It was a lot easier I must say!!! I was hiking and in my head I was like, OH it's going to be SOOOOOO much longer till I get to the top, then these ladies were coming down and we greeted each other and they were like, OH your doing great, not to much longer and you'll be to the top! I was like, WHAAAAAT??? I haven 't even been hiking that long this time...I was pretty SIKED!!!
At the top of the mountain, I found a guy to take pics of me...hee, hee, And I was like, SOOOOO EXCITED telling him about how the last time I had done this mountain was back in October and that it took me 2.5 hrs and that today it only took me 1.5 to get to the top! He was like, WOW, you've lost a HOUR, that's AWESOME!!! Then I asked him if he's ever hiked Camelback Mountain? He said he had, so I asked him how much harder that hike was than this one, and he said it WAS harder buuuuuuut he thought I would definitely be able to do it!!! He was like, If you could do this mountain, you can CRUSH CAMELBACK!!! He said that its just LONGER, but the ability level is basically the same!
Anywayz, happy birthday MOM, my birthday present to you, I'M GETTING HEALTHY, just what you always wanted!!! Looooooove you mommy poo!!! PURRRRRRRRRR!!!
♥Mary Frances :) P.s. Thank you for always purring back at me, for enjoying my MARYNESS and for always loving me, FOR ME!!! :)))
I can't imagine how awesome of a year this has been for you Mom,
I had this dream that you were with us again mom, but in this dream you had a brand new body and you were moving around like you'd never had an ache or pain in your life, and I was like, MOM, you were so sick, I thought for sure you were going to die it was like a horrible dream and now look at you, your healthier than me and you didn't say anything, you just smiled. Then I woke up and I was like, NO it's true, she really was that sick, and she really is dead! But then I realized, NO it's true, YOU REALLY DO HAVE A NEW BODY and YOU REALLY ARE ALIVE WITH JESUS!!! Congratulations Mom, ONE LIFE here on earth, sold out to Jesus and you now have what NO medicine, no surgery, no diet or exercise plan could ever give you here on earth!!!
Over and over again, I think of you, a day doesn't pass without me wondering what you are doing. There are times when I think I would do ANYTHING, for just ONE MORE moment with you, but then I remind myself not to be selfish because you are with Jesus, in an unfathomable Joy that my human mind could never comprehend. No matter how many tears I may cry, I would never want you to leave your reward.
Because of YOU MOM, I can make it, because of YOU MOM, I have a hope, BECAUSE OF YOU MOM, I have someone that I can go to with every care, Because of YOU MOM, I've got Jesus!!! THANK YOU MOM!!!
okaaaaaaaaaaaay soooooooo our second day in NYC was probably one of my favorites, besides my cousin's actual wedding day!!! It started off with an ADVENTURE, annnnnnd I LOOOOOVE adventures!!! LOL!!!
We're at the subway station in Forest Hills when a police officer announced that he didn't know exactly what was going on buuuuuut that Subway would NOT be stopping at the 71st due to a bomb threat, he was very calm when he told everyone buuuuut all the New Yorkers proceeded to FREAK OUT...because there was a BOMB THREAT??? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO...BECAUSE HOW WERE THEY SUPPOSED TO GET TO WORK NOW????
No joke peeps, no one even flinched about the bomb threat, they'['re just like, What?! No subway?! How are we supposed to get to work now?! Where are we supposed to go? Where is the subway stopping next??? This is when the police officer just loses it!!! He screams out, I DON"T KNOW!!! I HAVE NO IDEA!!!! I'm JUST THE BEARER OF THE NEWS!!!! ALL I KNOW IS THERE WAS A BOMB THREAT AND EVERYONE NEEDS TO EVACUATE...NOOOOOOOOOOOOW!!!!
This proceeded us to follow the crowd of grumbling New Yorkers to the bus stop!!! I'm like, T, lets get on, she's like, to where?! I'm like, IDK...we got a metro card...LETS JUST GO!!! Annnnnd soooooo with my AMAZING ADVICE, WE DID!!! Hee, hee!!! This was very exciting for me cuz this was literally THE FIRST time I've ever ridden a city bus!!!
Annnnnnnd some how we eventually managed to get to our destination of LITTLE ITALY!!!
This was in a garden in the house we were renting from...
