Vacation #AtoZChallenge

Sadly I didn’t go to the beach for my vacation. It was more of a working vacation. Have I mentioned that we had a small fire? It wasn’t big but did damage to the ceiling in my parents room. Anyway, the major repairs were finished and our contractor was starting the painting when he had a family emergency. So we decided to take the burden off of him (he is a friend from church) and do the painting ourselves. Monday our neighbors and good friends painted the room and I helped put things back together. 
 
Tuesday was the day to paint my room. It had been an ugly gold/brown color.
 
The doors are now a silver gray
 
The big wall is navy blue
When we started the blue wall i thought it would end up brighter than I’d wanted but once it dried it was dark blue like I wanted.
The rest of the walls are a pale gray.
The rest of the week was pretty mundane, Until Saturday.
8 friends and I trecked down to Phoenix for a concert. Bethel Music.
First we did some shopping. Yes I ended up in Barnes and Noble…..I can’t help it lol
I’d never been to Tempe Marketplace. It was fun.
They made fun of me because I’d never been to Chick-Fil-A
I didn’t see what the hype is all about but that’s just me.
So we had to commemorate the moment.
I’m still not sure how I felt about this concert. I didn’t really enjoy it. It was just too much…….noise.
Chris Tomlin is about as wild as I get. This was over the top. Plus, something just felt off.  Sensory overload I guess.
Sunday we went to College View Baptist Church for our service, My friend’s extended family goes there and her brother in law is that pastor. It was a great service.
The girl squad
All in all it was a fun weekend with the girls 🙂

Coming Soon!! 2016

coming-soon

2016 is coming soon and that knowledge leads me to wonder….What happened to 2015?

It seems the older one gets the faster years go. I remember as a kid thinking I couldn’t possibly live long enough to be the age I am today…almost 45, but here I am.

So….What are your plans for 2016?

I already have 2 road trips planned. Both in the same week. Am I crazy? Don’t answer that…

In April I am going to take a road trip to the town of my birth. San Pedro California. I haven’t been there since……high school? Possibly. Then later that same week I will be seeing friends at the KABAM book festival in Kingman Arizona.

I also have several friends publishing new books in early 2016. This will be featured on my book blog. You can see what is there now if you like. Just follow the link.

There will be no Comic-Con next year, Plans fell through and people flaked on me so….I probably won’t be attending that again, sadly.
