My Style Monday, New Haircut, & Weekend Recap.

My Style Monday

Today's My Style Monday is from church this weekend. Now that it's football season I will be sporting blue on a weekly basis (though not always so dressy). I'm 2 weeks away from a new phone so bare with my crappy blackberry pics for 2 more weeks, please.

First off, thank you for your sweet responses to my post about friendship. I'm so blessed by the encouragement I find here on the blog, in all aspects of my life. I continue to be surprised by the number of people who read and respond to what I say. Blogging truly has become one of my favorite things.

We had an incredible service to continue our Freedom series at church this weekend, all about pride. It's funny the quirks in my life that I don't attribute to pride, but when you boil it down, probably do stem from my desire to appear without flaw, does that make sense? If you want to hear the sermon feel free to check it out on my church's website - - they PODcast with all for free (fabulous, I know).

I've been studying the book of Samuel in my quiet times in the morning. When I say studying I really mean it - underlining, highlighting, taking notes, read multiple times, looking up things I don't totally understand. I'm so fascinated by what I'm learning that I've been waking up at 6:30 every morning excited for what the next two chapters will hold. It's a great feeling.

I had a busy, productive weekend per my usual but I honestly had more fun than I have in a while. I got some great time with some of my favorite people in Tampa - including a night out with Auburn and Kayla, the grand opening of the new yogurtology with Daniel, Kayla, and some delightful new people, spades with friends, Beefs to watch football, etc.

Whew. This week is going to be intense so I may be scarce a bit. But lots of exciting evening plans so I'll keep you posted eventually, as time allows. I've got a great friend coming in town Friday for the long weekend - so I'm workin for the weekend!

Ok, on to Monday.

Woohoo! I got a blog mention! It was awesome to see you and of course eat froyo. It's only fitting that we went to the grand opening together since you were the one who introduced me to the amazingness of Yogurtology! So thankful for you and your friendship!

I love the dress and hair! Thanks for linking up!

I, too, am amazed at the support and love from the blog world.

I hope your busy week and weekend go smoothly!

It was so nice to see you last week! And our sermon at Grace this weekend was amazing...I too found that there were many things that I wouldn't have attributed to pride in my life, yet God opened my eyes to see that they indeed were. I'm a work in progress! :)

That blue dress is AMAZING! Love your new hair too :) My mom was baptized this Sunday so I'm right there with you on the spirituality train! God is good!

I love the Samuel books. I'm doing Beth Moore's 90 Days of David study, and it's obviously all in Samuel. So, so great-- I highly recommend it. Oh, and I love that blue dress!!
