The mark of love {Giveaway}

9:00 AM

The Mark of Love is a bracelet with a distinct design to remind you of one of the the five scars that Jesus endured for His people. The bracelet represents the sacrifice Jesus made and to let us never forget the role his it plays in our lives. It is a great reminder of love and Christ's love for us.

The Mission -
Over one billion people do not have access to clean drinking water. This ongoing issue threatens life on a devastating scale. We can mend that. In an effort to advocate the message of love on a global level, a portion of proceeds from every sale will go directly to Living Water International.

I love this bracelet, for what it stands for and what the money goes to help! Even American Idol winner Lee Dewyze has been seen wearing the Mark of Lover bracelet!

Hunter Harrison is the creator of the Mend Mark movement, calls everyone who wear's this bracelet to remember Gods love and sacrifice. Also to remember to show Christ's love to others.

And guess what???
You have a chance to win one!!!

(1) Adam. Love this movie. If you haven't seen it. You must! My sis picked it up at the library for me today and now I can't wait to watch it.

(2) Funny Conversations. Ever been in a group of people, with multiple hilarious conversations going? Happened today in my co-op lunch. I actually don't usually stay for lunch at co-op. I'm just go their from my Spanish class then leave. But today I hung out for a little bit during lunch (mostly cause my sister had the car and I was waiting for her to pick me up). Anywho its hard to write into words what was being said but some of the main words were Justin Bieber, cars, Halloween outfits, and candy dots.

(3) Free and or cheep songs on itunes. Of course its bad enough that I'm constantly buying songs on itunes but its even better when their cheep (like 69 cent) or even free.

Sports - T.T's first touchdown!

2:06 PM

I was so excited when I got home Sunday evening and found out Tim made his first NFL regular season touchdown!

Now I'm just waiting in anticipation for when they put him in more wild card plays and eventually as starter quarterback ;)


1:01 PM

Oh Monday. How I love and hate you.

I love you because

  • you start a new week

I hate you because
  • i find out how much school i have to do that week
  • I cry over math first thing in the morning
  • I don't get to sleep in

As you can tell, the hate's weigh out the loves. Oh well, I'm a tough girl I'll get through every Monday I encounter!

I hope you all are getting through this Monday too!

Whats in my purse?

9:00 AM

I was tagged by Miss.Hope to blog about whats in my purse. I was going to do a fun video but I really haven't had the time :( I guess this post will just have to do :)

I actually forgot the name of my purse. I used to have it memorized. All I know is it was a great deal from target:)


Whats in my purse????? Well... (Top to bottom)

  • My key-chain that i use to put the car keys on when I have them with my Dale jr lanyard that I got for free at the track last year ;)
  • Midnight Pomegranate lotion from Bath and Body works
  • A little clear bag for chap-stick's and emergency make-up ;)
  • extra pink ponytails
  • cell phone
  • clutch wallet
  • planner and pens
  • sunglasses and reading glasses
(if you haven't notice, i have this quiet obsession with pink things)

That's whats in my purse! This is actually a very little amount of stuff that i have in it. I usually have more. LOL. That's why I refer to my purse as the bottomless pit.

Hey Everyone!

Well, I hope everyone had an amazing weekend. Mine consisted of mostly cleaning on Saturday, and then Sunday we went and hung out at the Magic Kingdom for a little bit.
Oh and I was extra happy when I got home from the Disney because I found out that.....

WON! Wohoo.. Any the Giants! Both of my teams won yesterday!

Ok. Sorry. I had to have my football fan moment there ;)

So after having a pretty long day yesterday, I'm just chilling out at the house today. Just finished up my school. Eww.
I'm even still in my p.j's. Yup, I'm such a typical homeschooler. ;)
But hey! Schools, school whether or not your in your pj's or regular clothes.lol

Anywhoo. Again I hope you all had a great weekend. Hopefully something exciting will happen so I can blog some more this week :D I'm do have some exciting things to share that are in the works but that wont be till later on this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

By the way I can't believe its October already! And it ACTUALLY feels like it today in florida ;)
(it usually doesn't get "fall like" till mid october)
