Praise for the Raise

Grant and I spent Friday night in Waco at our friends Jonathan and Abby's wedding! Grant worked with both of them while in college and it was nice to see them tie the knot... And for you trivia buffs, Jonathan caught the garter at our wedding!

Mr. and Mrs. Jonathan Reyes

I really really really enjoyed these cakes.
I know it is hard to tell what these are.... but these are beautiful flowers dangling from the ceiling at the reception, and what is most impressive is that these flowers were hand-strung by the GROOMSMEN! They do serve a purpose!! :)
These are our friends David and Sara. Aren't they kinda precious?
My groom. I pretty much love him.

Saturday morning, we woke up at the lovely Waco Holiday Inn and drove back to Houston... at 6:00am. My husband made a 9:00 tee time in Houston that he just had to play. But it's okay, we stopped at a gas station where I bought my breakfast: 1 Rice Krispy Treat, 1 package of Peanut M&M's and 1 Diet Coke. Breakfast of Champions!

I cleaned my house top to bottom on Saturday. I feel better about myself when my house is clean. I don't know why, but I feel like I have a better attitude when my house is all purty! And to make it better, just as I was wiping my kitchen table, my husband came home with a bouquet of beautiful flowers. I think it was a thank you gift for agreeing to drive back to Houston so early for a golf game! Needless to say, I was glad to have some fresh flowers on my kitchen table.

Sunday morning I went to church and was very glad to have our Pastor Gregg back from sabattical. (However, it must be said that Curtis Jones did an AWESOME job in his absence!). I also was on "duty" for first hour working the sign up table for the first KIDS CHOIR meeting this Wednesday!! I am so excited to meet all these kids and get involved in such a wonderful ministry. ANNNND after church I had lunch with my Linds, as well as blogger ABBY and Nikki! I do love me some queso from Red Robin!

Today is Monday and I was back to work. My week is going to look a little different since I am spending most my week training the new accountant in our procedures. I would also like to give my Jesus some HUGE PRAISE for the RAISE I was given on Friday! :) I was called into the president's office on Friday and got the wonderful news. It is a HUGE blessing and I am beyond grateful... Thank You Lord. It's not me, it's YOU!!

    I totally agree about needing stuff clean. why is that?!

  8. Did your girls tell you how precious we all were in SA?? I'm totally kidding.
