I looooooove my sauce… there is NO ITALIAN RESTAURANT that can beat me… well that’s me being humble… Bahahahahaaa!!! Anyways I was like how should i season my popcorn and bam 💥!!!! 
I really hope my pastor sees this because he thinks zebra 🦓 popcorn is gross!!! I was like how do you NOT like zebra popcorn??? This was. All during Bible trivia at the school after devotions, sometimes I like to stay JUST TO HELP THE GIRLS BEAT THE GUYS!!! Buuuuuuut the boys  actually won, this ONE TIME,  buuuuuuut ONLY BECAUSE PASTOR JOINED THEIR TEAM!!! Also because I can’t keep my mouth shut when I know the answer even when it’s for the boys team… I just get soooooo excited cuz I feel smart cuz the Bible is the only thing I really have the right answer for… soooooo anywaZ back to the popcorn…I was liiiiiiike, what’s REALLY GOOD is Carmel and cheese popcorn mixed together!!! and pastor was like that’s DISGUSTING!!!! Sooooooo I can ONLY IMAGINE what he’d say if he saw MY ITALIAN POPCORN!!! (He’s not a foodie!!!! Lol)

When you can’t see the sun…

I went hiking 🥾 this morning and I was really hoping for some rain because hiking in the rain and listening to my stories as I hik in the rain is one of my absolute favorite things everrrrr!!!! Buuuuuuut despite the clouds ☁️ there was only a few little sprinkles!!!
Still the weather was beautiful and it was a very enjoyable hike. When I got to the top of the mountain, there is this big rock 🪨 that overlooks the valley and I always rest on it and just chill and enjoy the view before hiking back down! 
I laid back on my rock to look up at sky and the clouds but I could not keep my eyes open to look! It was the weirdest thing buuuuuuut even though the sun was completely covered by the clouds, the sun was directly behind the clouds right above me and just the radiance of the sun was still to strong for my eyes.
Even in my hardest, gloomiest, darkest times, the power of God has still radiated so strongly in my life!!! Nothing can ever cover or over shadow the power of God. The love of God is so much stronger than the darkness of this world!!! 
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)

Priscilla comes to visit!!! For

Soooooo I’ve been meaning to blog about this foreverrrrr and I just kept forgetting buuuuuuut my friend Priscilla came and visited me this summer!!! We had literally met a 1 month earlier, the last night of AMA , after church just chilling with everyone at night and we were laughing so hard about stuff an the next thing I knew she was coming for a visit!!!
You guys have noooooo idea I just was soooooo sick!!!! I warned her… just to let you know I am soooooo sick 😷 buuuuuut she still came and I felt bad cuz I’m usually like, go, go, GO!!!! Buuuuut she was totally chill about me wanting to nothing buuuuuut sit there and talk!!!! And we literally just on the couch ALL DAY  and talked and talked and she told me her testimony and I told her about every guy that has everrrrr broken my heart which IS actually is a very short list and I was liiiiiiike, wait so we’ve only known each other for a month??? How’ve we only known each other for a month???? 

OF course I had enough energy to get coffee!!! We got these orange 🍊 cold cream coffees and they were sooooo bomb 💣 

And of course I did NOT lose my appetite like a typical GINTY and we went to Fry Bread house for dinne…
She was pretty impressed with them!!!
Sunday morning she got to experience my cooking skills, she saw first hand that I can make an immaculate kitchen look like a tornado 🌪️ swept through it in less than five minutes… and ALSO that I absolutely can NOT multitask… not only can I NOT talk and drive, I can NOT talk and cook… the first batch of breakfast sandwiches got burnt buuuuuut we stopped talking for the rest!!! Lol she even got to experience the fire alarm going off for me!!!! Bahahahahaaa 

Church ⛪️ time!!!!

Even my sister liked her!!! She said good job on FINALLY making friends with someone that’s NOT annoying!!!🤣😂

After church ⛪️ a group of us went to a Thai place called Malee’s!!! It was sooooooo goood!!!!! Bomb coconut 🥥 shrimp!!!

And then it was time to say goodbye 👋 
Buuuuuuuuuut NOT FOR LOOOOONG… she’s staying with me for Landmark Conference next week…
And single Apostolic MEN, guess what?????
She’s siiiiingle!!! 😜 😘

Happy Monday!!!

This is your reminder that you better watch out, you better not pout, cuz those scales are gonna be jumping up high if you don’t!!!! Lol 😆 
You guys, I am TRYING SO HARD TO REACH my 40th birthday 🥳 weight loss goal by the end of the year and the scale has been stuck at the same exact weight to the exact ounces four days in a row and I literally ate very little all day yesterday and guess what????
You think 🤔 I’m going to say I finally hit my goal right??? 
Nope 👎 
This is the part where I say….
This is the part where there IS the possibility that I’m gaining some muscle since I’m drinking A LOT of protein shakes and high protein yogurts buuuuuuuut it’s still REALLY ANNOYING not to be seeing the scale change!!!!
What can I say??? I can only do my best and the rest is up to God… buuuuuuuuuut…
Eat good til Christmas EVERYONE!!!!

LPC Ladies Cookie Exchange 2023!!!

Sooooooo our annual ladies cookie 🍪 exchange is always a biiiiiiig blast 💥 every December!!! It is sooooooo much fun 🤩 and we always have a such a gooooooood time!!!

I don’t know how many years back now, I started adding in an outfit contest to encourage everyone to DRESS UP!!!!
This year I added in a PINK category since pink is ALL the rage right now…the ladies walked down in their categories and then everyone turns in their ballots for each category…
Sister Bishop even did a little model wave 👋 when she walked down to show her outfit- I think that may have been my favorite part of the whole night… 😂🤣

The winners: 
The pinkest: Malia
The Classiest: Denae
The Merriest: Ally
Little Miss Merry: Chelsea 

Gift 🎁 exchange game!!!

Guess which guy’s name I told them all to say when I snapped the picture???? Hint: I’ve NEVERRRRRR met him… soooo it’s NOT JESUS!!! 

It was a grand time together and I already have plans for next year… I think we need an ACTUAL carpet for everyone to walk down modeling their outfits!!!

LCA Christmas Recital 2023!!!

I loooooove our church ⛪️ school, Landmark Christian Academy’s Christmas recital we do every year…
It’s like the official beginning of all the Christmas festivities 

The kids playing the bells to Jungle Bells and last year Lucy Karlson officially named them the Landmark Ding- Dongs… you gotta meet Lucy, she has the best and funnest personality everrrrr!!!!

Literally THE WHOLE REASON Odin decided to take piano 🎹 this year, for these two minutes to SHINE!!!! 😂 (takes after his aunt;)

My first Christmas outfit of the season!!!

Younger LCA KIDS- Abby, Ellie, Lucy, Chelsea, Bella, Odin & Kyle!!!

Older LCA Kids- Levi, Kenzie, Malia, Grace, MJ & Will

And the night ended playing four square… I looooove this game because I enjoy playing sports buuuuut neverrrr play because I’m soooooo horrible at them and it’s a guarantee that the team I’m on will most likely lose because of me, buuuuut with four square, I can have fun, LOSE and it only affects me and no one has to pray through over me losing the game… I just laugh and play again… UNLESS I I have a miracle and win and then I neverrr shut up about it!! 😝 I think that racquet ball and pickle ball are the same way if anyone wants to teach me how to play????
