That's right! I turned 21 almost one week ago! My birthday was not extravagant but still was great. I had the day off and it was Kevin's scheduled day off so we were able to spend the day together.. (which hasn't happened in a LONG time!!) So in the morning I went to go get a pedicure which was SO NICE one of my favorite things to do is to get my toes done, I feel so much better afterward. Then I went home and Kevin and I went to go meet my dad at Joe's BBQ for lunch. They have amazing food AND I got to eat for free because it was my birthday! After that we went to a few stores to go shopping and get some things for around the house and use some gift cards. All in all it was a great day and I enjoyed every minute of my Wednesday night at church instead of at some bar getting drunk and doing stuff that is regrettable. Once again I thank God for deliverance from sin and the ability to think straight and have sound judgment. One thing is for sure, I know that I would not be in my right mind if I didn't accept Jesus' blood sacrifice on the cross almost 4 years ago. It was the best decision I could ever have made!
On April 21st it will be 4 years, man how the time has flown by, I cannot believe how much God has changed me into one of His children!
Also, it was just my mother-in-laws birthday on Sunday and her and the family came over (besides Brian (we couldn't get a hold of him)). I make Sunday lunch for us all and it turned out really good! I was kind of nervous because it was something that I have not made before, but it turned out great anyways. For dessert I made some ambrosia type of thing and it had tapioca beads in it. It was delicious. We also had a pie from coco's it was a cherry cream cheese flavor. The whole afternoon was wonderful and I was glad to be able to bless her and the family on that special day.
Kevin and I also finally are making time to work out! It is a big trial because we barely have any time together to begin with but it needs to be done. We have a gym in our apartment complex that is free of charge and it is in the clubhouse. It is really pretty nice for being free. It has an elliptical machine, a bike, a treadmill and a HUGE weight machine. It is really nice that they offer that to us. Our apartments have just been one blessing on top of another!
I am going to Alexa's bridal shower tonight, so that should be great fun! Alexa was one of my roommates that I had before I got married. Her and I became good friends and I am so lucky that she is apart of my life. She is going to be a beautiful bride and I am so happy for her and Jason!
Well that is all for now
