Would You Rather Wednesday?!?!

"Would you rather eat your home pet for $500,000 or do nothing and continue to be broke?" Things to consider: 500,000 is a sweet home here in Cali or how would you explain the missing pet to the family kids.

*Today I am thankful for Mandy and her friendship.

TMC Golf Tournament...

Today we had our Annual golf tournament to raise scholarship money for students at the college. Every year they ask me to meet and greet and sit on a hole and give away a gift. The last three years they paired me with Hugh and this year I get to work with Hampton since Hugh graduated. We had a great day of conversation, sun and laughter. (he almost killed me on the golf cart too!) The school brought in around 40,000 in scholarship money today.

*Today I am thankful that Janelle had a healthy baby girl!

End of Year...Intern Party

This weekend has been a busy one! We had Admitted Students Day yesterday where close to 200 students and their families came to visit the school and tonight we had our end of year party. I can't believe this is the end of the school year. Tonight we honored all of the Admissions interns. We had a Mexican fiesta, played games and enjoyed being together. It's definetly a bittersweet time. I am really thankful for all of them. We had a great group this yeat and they will be missed over the summer!

Thursday, April 23, 2009 that's where I've been the last 2 weeks. We've been really busy and I've been putting in some hours and haven't had time to blog. The following are a couple highlights that have stood out to me:
*God's goodness in my life
*My office...we have the best time. They make me laugh and help me keep it real.
*Going through Revelation..feeling grateful that the Lord choose to save ME!! It really overwhelms me.
*Spending a day with Ivy in Hollywood.
*Mandy (a GREAT roommate and friend)
*$75 ticket to Des Moines in June to see my brother and family (with Kelli and Ivy)...CANT WAIT
*night out in Pasadena with Caitlin and Mandy
*An overnight with Patricia...always an uplifting and encouraging time with my Sista!
*laughing with Kristin
*Getting to spend time with Tricia's parents.
*Getting to spend time with Sissy and Ivy
*AS I was leaving Ivy yesterday she yelled at me and said, "Hollie have a fun day, I love you...Your MY Hollie." i melted.

A couple hard things the last two weeks:
*finding out the judge ruled that Sissy would go to her grandparents. She'll be gone any day now. Pray Pray Pray!
*Sinus infection
*Too tired to be consistent in my time with the Lord.
*Watching loved ones who are going through a difficult time.

Through all of these good and hard times I'm reminded that our God is faithful and all praise should be given to Him!

*Today I am thankful for cute shoes...even though they hurt my feet.

Happy Birthday Mayah!

I had to take a break from Would You Rather Wednesday in order to give my neice a shout out for her birthday. Mayah, I love you and wish I could be there with you to celebrate. I can't believe you are six years old. You're such a kind, loving and smart six year old. I hope you continue to grow to be a girl who loves and fears God. I love you Mayah and I wish I could give you a big squeeze today!!!!

*i am thankful for Mayah today.

Ivy and Hollie's Photo-shoot

The other day Ivy and I were hanging out and she asked if we could take pictures together. She wanted us to do some fun poises. She thought this was so much fun...I did too. I have been enjoying her so much lately. She's getting so verbal and I can't get enough of her.

*Today I am thankful for four year olds.

San Diego...

This has been a crazy week and a half. I went from San Fran to San Diego. We put over 1700 miles on the car in 6 days. The trip to San Diego included Luke, Kristin and I. It was a tiring week but a good one. We ended the week going to a Gavin DeGraw concert. Angel Taylor was opening for his so it was sweet. I've seen Gavin about six times in concert and this time was one of the best. It was a chill concert but he re-did some songs and added a funk vibe to it. I really dug it! My parents got in the day before I got back so it's going to be a week of family time. There's no place like home!

*Today I am thankful for my own bed.
