{weekend} happiness

I am a really lucky gal. I am so blessed. I love days when I can stop worrying about silly things and just relax and love life. This weekend was yet another good one. Friday night and Saturday morning and afternoon spent with the fam. We had game night at Abby and Chad's and I got to love up on the kiddos- see below.

Saturday night I took Jeremy to the Citizen Cope concert and had a blast. We got there at 6:30 when the doors opened at 7 thinking he went on at 8.... well he didn't go on until 9, but luckily that gave us time to make new friends with Angie, Roberto, and Alan! No joke- became instant buds. (Angie and I have already texted and emailed since Saturday) So then the concert started and we all had a blast rockin' out to Salvation, Let the Drummer Kick, and last but not least- Sideways. It was only tainted by the big "L" on the record books in Houston. Not only did we lose our star quarterback Case, we lost our backup quarterback! What the heck?!? So much for this season being a BCS bustin' season...

Sunday was a more chilled day. Jeremy and I had a really great talk about what we want. Out of our lives, out of each other, etc. Just one of those good, heartfelt, meaningful conversations with your best friend. Then church last night was great. It's so nice to hear a sermon that doesn't make you reflect on your sins. Don't take this the wrong way, but it was just a happy to be alive in this wonderful world and know and love Jesus kind of sermon. Matt talked about the importance of the ecclesia, or church. The verse was especially meaningful after Jeremy and I's conversation because it was about the friendship between Jonathan and David, and how their souls were knitted together. That they love each other more than they love themselves. It was truly inspiring and what I think was a sign of the friendship that Jeremy and I need to focus on before anything else can happen between us.

Sorry to sound like such a goody goody, but it's true- God has blessed me so much and I need to make sure to thank Him everyday for the ultimate sacrifice for me, so undeserving. Happy Monday loves!

isn't he the cutest?
