everything glorious

So, as I was driving home from Starbucks where I had a lovely chat with Karis and Lisa (and a brief, but also lovely chat with Laura!), I was listening to my new CD, Passion: Everything Glorious, which is from the Passion '06 Conference and I said to myself, "Self, why don't you own any David Crowder Band CDs?" and I had no response but, "Because apparently I'm an idiot." Yeah, that's basically all there is to it. I love the CD. We're talking that's basically all I've listened to since I bought it. This is really funny, 'cause I went in to look at sheet music and with the thought of buying the new Starfield album, which I bought, but haven't made it all the way through. (I'm sorry guys!!) So, yeah, I love the CD, but I especially love "Everything Glorious," "You Are My Joy," and "We Win." I was definitely jammin' (that's right, I said jammin') to "You Are My Joy" during the guitar solo when the syncopation comes in on the drums! That's what I love about driving at one can see you making a fool of yourself in the car playing steering wheel drums. So, yeah. I felt the need to share that so that you too can enjoy this great worship and musical experience.

a thousand yellow daisies

I'm watching:
Gilmore Girls - The Complete First Season

This would make my day:

a thousand yellow daisies

I'm just saying. Someday, I'd like to be where Lorelai is sitting. (Although I'd like things to go better than they did with Max)

Ok, so I promised pictures from the Parker Street Friendraiser dinner and here they are! Well, at least the ones that I'm in. That's all I've gotten to so far. (And by "gotten to", I mean these are the only ones that I've taken off of Karis' Flickr page and cropped) So, without further ado:

me in pink!
This is me after dinner before I went to change...for the first time (don't ask)

me flowers and brian
Here we have a blurry picture of me smiling and I'm really not sure what Brian is doing.

This is only the second "band photo" that we've taken. Someday we'll actually pick up instruments together.
From left to right: Karis, Kayla, Lisa, and Me

Ok, there you have it!

good stuff

I've had a good weekend. Part of it was crappy, 'cause Karis got sick and we couldn't have our hoedown that we've been planning. We're still going to have it, though. We're just not sure when. I ended up playing Cranium up at Mitchell's instead. Yesterday was fun, though. Alison came to church with me and then we went over to James' (from Trinity, not Emileigh's James) house for a BBQ. I'm really excited to be meeting more people and getting to fellowship. We ate good food, talked about really gross medical things, listened to Brian play some hilarious Adam Sandler songs, and basically had a great time. As we left James', we got a call back on one of the apartments that we were interested in. We could go look at it in about an hour, so we decided to kill some time at Kohls. I love that store. I found 4 shirts on super-happy clearance! We looked at the apt, but they want to fill it now and we don't need it until the 1st of July. Anywho, so we came home and I got a nice little nap in before I headed over to Ted's for food and cards. We played 2 rounds of Big Kahuna. Guess who is the reigning Big Kahuna? That's's me. The one who never wins ANY games! It was flippin' sweet. So, yeah...great weekend. Great week, actually. I'll have some pictures up soon from the Parker Street Friendraiser Dinner last Thursday. Until then,

Go under the mercy!

I am a happy girl. Yes, I am girly and I'm happy. And that's all I have to say about that.

And I love Andrew Peterson's The Far Country. Every time I listen to that album I am just so inspired. I mean, come on:

I believe in the holy shores of uncreated light.
I believe there is power in the blood.
And all of the death that ever was, if you sat it next to light-
I believe it would barely fill a cup.
'Cause I believe there is power in the blood.
~Lay Me Down To Die

It doesn't get much better than this folks. I'm sorry that I haven't written in a while. I've had a lot happen in the past month. We're talking A LOT. Those of you that read this often or know me from other various web-related spots might have noticed that my profiles have changed a bit. I don't really want to go into it much in this type of a forum, but I feel that I should at least mention it since its a pretty big deal. A month ago I broke up with Reagan. It was my doing and it was a pretty much peaceful ordeal, but there is always healing that has to come. I think that I'm doing pretty well, considering. I think a lot of my processing actually came before the fact, though, which kinda makes sense. So, there it is. There is the reason that my profiles now say 'single' on them - because I am. It's taking some getting used to, but I'm starting to like it.

Ok, that's done and said. I think I'm going to go back to being girly again, 'cause I really like it. I promise that I will write more often now that I'm processed and all that jazz.
