I Love Mondays #4

{I Love...}

My new schedule. I posted {somewhat} briefly about this the other day, though it has changed in some ways. First, I am now volunteering two days a week at the elementary school in our neighborhood! I am really too blessed!! I will be in kindergarten & first grade classrooms, and am too excited to start getting that experience that new teachers need oh so dearly. I am also going to my first LINKS session here at Camp Pendleton on Wednesday..And it is all day, literally! I am too excited! After this I plan on volunteering with their LINKS for Kids program - I already told one of the ladies about the Candyland PCS board game I made for the program in Quantico last summer, and they too excited, and are always thrilled with more enthusiastic volunteers. I can't wait to get my foot into the door with these programs.

Sprinkles Cupcakes. That's right, this weekend we made it out to Sprinkles in LA! We actually went to their newest location at The Grove, a shopping district in LA. Though, the location that I thought we were going to was in downtown LA... I just for some reason got the two locations mixed up. I was also thinking that we would be in the same area as Georgetown Cupcake's newest location, which is in a shopping center that I went to with my mom the summer before our wedding for a little vacation, but I was wrong about that too. I really don't know this area as well as I thought! But man, these cupcakes were amazing! You can never go wrong with Sprinkles. I plan on going to each of their locations in California as well..actually all of their locations, there's one in Dallas too!


I love Sprinkles! Come on, who doesn't love cupcakes?!
Love Does. By Bob Goff. My latest read! I am not that far into it yet, but it is truly beautiful! He believes that love does things. It gets things done. Love fuels him, and love takes action. I have finished chapter 1 & 2 so far and can't wait to get into the rest. Where I ended at thus far is a great point - a long time ago, Bob had a friend named Doug. Doug taught him about Jesus. These lessons taught him that fully loving and fully living are one in the same; And it's also the kind of life that Jesus invited all of us to be a part of (p16). We know "the extent of our love for God by how well we loved people (p15)." You should really take a look at this book!

Spring classes. Tomorrow (Monday) is my first day of the Spring 2013 D subterm! Whoop! I'll be taking 15 hours in only 8 weeks. It's going to be a lot. The weeks run from Tuesday to Monday, and because of the time change, everything is due at 8:59 pm rather than 11:59pm. That will definitely keeping me from staying up all night to turn in assignments, and will really make me think about finishing things early since the deadline is a few hours prior than I'm used to. Anyway, I'm taking two education courses, history, english, and youth ministries. I am too excited! It's going to be a lot juggling school, going to the elementary school, and LINKS {along with everything else I have to do} but it will definitely be worth it. And, I'll only be this busy for the next two months, then things will get a lot slower in the summer!
Well, that's my life lately! Hope all is well out there in blogland :)



  1. Such a fun weekend!!! The cupcakes look amazing. Have you ever seen the show Cupcake Wars? It's awesome. One of the judges on the show is the fonder of Sprinkles Cupcakes...I'd like to assume its the same company Sprinkles Cupcakes you went to!

    Hats off to you on the 8 week classes. I did an 8 week class last fall. I had never done one before so it was hard getting used to it but it turned out pretty good! Good luck in all classes :)
