Wedding planning in the middle of Camp!

Hello there!!
I just got back from shopping all day in Springfield with my sister, sister-in-law, nieces and friend! :) Oh I was amazed by the way God blessed our whole trip!!! I found my wedding dress after the 3rd dress I tried on. I love it!!! I am so so excited!!!
Then we found the perfect fabric for the bridesmaid dresses, and it turns out, each dress is only going to cost me about $9 a piece! WOW!!! Did you get what I said? $9 dollars per bridesmaid dress!! That is like!!!...Totally a God thing!!! I was expecting each dress to be at the least $20!!! And the patterns were on sale at $1.99. And oh! I got the flowergirl dresses %50 off!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh!!! I am just so thrilled and amazed at how much God blessed me today!!!
I am so happy!
Well I just finished my first week at camp, it was the best week I have EVER had!! My girls were simply wonderful! Awesome team work and perfect fun!!
Trying to plan a wedding while working at camp deff is interesting. But I am thrilled I have this opportunity!
Here are a few pictures of my last week!

Best Vacation Ever!!

I'm so happy! I don't know how to keep it all in!
So for the last week I've been in Mass at our family cottage with my aunts and uncles and grandparents. The cottage is right off the bay and ohh, it's so beautiful!! I have never had so much fun in my little life. :) I've been pretty much eating and sleeping and playing in the sun. hehe!!
I cannot tell you how much joy and happiness I have. God is so good to me!! Every day I have seen blessing after blessing come pouring from above.
I've had a lot of time to make plans for our wedding while up here. It's been wonderful to have my aunts to talk to and to help me to plan. I finished designing our wedding invitation last night! I have to get them printed now, and then my dear friend, and sister-in-heart, Katie Brown, (one of my bridesmaids) graciously offered to write out all the addresses for us. What a friend! :D
My best-friend Nathania, (my maid of honor and sister-to-be!!) has been making the cutest little table numbers for the reception! And my mother-to-be ;) ;) ;) made some adorable decorations for the tables as well!
I am just so excited!!!
Tomorrow morning I am leaving the cottage at 3 AM to fly to Missouri. 2 weeks of camp and then back to Oklahoma I go!!!

Here are just a few pictures of my time up here! Enjoy!

Taking care of the girls, and loving the water and sun!

Counting down the days...

So I told you all that something was coming up in the next few weeks... wellll... I'm still counting down the day.

But in the mean time, I heard this song today, and I've heard it many times before, but today it really meant a lot to me. It's called,


Do you wonder why you have to
Feel the things that hurt you?
If there's a God who loves you
Where is He now?

Or maybe there are things you can't see
And all those things are happening
To bring a better ending
Someday, somehow you'll see, you'll see

Would you dare, would you dare to believe
That you still have a reason to sing?
'Cause the pain that you've been feeling
It can't compare to the joy that's coming

So hold on, you gotta wait for the light
Press on and just fight the good fight
'Cause the pain that you've been feeling
It's just the dark before the morning

My friend, you know how this all ends
And you know where you're going
You just don't know how you'll get there
So say a prayer

And hold on
'Cause there's good for those who love God
But life is not a snapshot
It might take a little time, but you'll see the bigger picture


Ashlyn turn 15 this last weekend. She is such a joy to my life. I am constantly impressed and encouraged by this beautiful young lady, who I am proud to call my niece.
