This week's been busy busy! So since I haven't blogged in forever, i'll play catch up as best as I can!
Rewind to last Friday. MT took me on a surprise date! I think often times I take his sweetness as the "norm", but he goes out of his way to "sweep me off my feet" everyday! We've been dating for aroudn.. 5 months and still he's planning surprise dates (remember back to July 3rd, he surprised me on our first date by taking me to Ruth's Chris, fancy, i know.. i felt special) but, I kinda feel like I don't brag enough about the sweet surprises and caring things he's STILL doing, i love it! My thoughts and from past experiences tell me most guys only "try" for the first couple months, three tops, but MT's a real life prince charming! He swept me off my feet in June, and hasn't put me down yet. (I hope he never does!) Anyways, so enough of the mushy stuff, bet you just wanna know where we went, wellll.. he took me over to Avondale to a place called Espeto's, it's a brazillian steak house, much like the one i brag about while visiting Brazil back in '05! Here's the art of this place, it's owned by brazilians, so it gets done right! You are first seated, they take your drink order, and you then help yourself to the "hot" bar, (which includes a salad bar) and there's hot beans and rice, pasta salad, soups... all the good side items, not meats on the bar. As you sit and enjoy your sides, waitors carrying swords (yes real swords) bring around 14 different meats to try, from lamb, to ribs, peper and garlic steak, and the list goes on! They give you small portions of meat so you can try them all! It's different and enjoyable! It's up scale avondale, but I would def. recommend it! Tasty!
Saturday, MT and I headed to Yulee to do a little "shopping", can't elaborate on this quite yet.. so i'll leave it at that! =)
We lazied around the rest of the day, visiting with his family, enjoyed the beautiful weather, played bag-o, and as night fell, laid out a big blanket and watched the stars and planes. (MT lives like 10 mins from JI-Airport, we laughed, cut up, and enjoyed time together! That's my second time star gazing ever.... very special, and again super sweet!
Sunday was spent at HFBC and Mama and Pa Seeley's house. Our pastor, Bro. Wayne, laid it down again. This time on prayer, he left me with a lot to chew on, and I love his challenging messages! Don't ever "not" pray for something because you think it's "too big" or "too out of control or our hands"... God's got big hands, he can handle anything, and pray with meaning and be presistant, God loves to be bothered with blessings! =)
Monday night is our "doubles" date with my roomie Laura and her beau Will, we go play tennis at some local courts, good exercise, and lots of fun, i look forward to Monday Night Throw Downs! It's another work week, and another time of battling my schedule. Me and MT have started our Bible Study of reading the NT all the way through, MT challenges the study by bringing out discussion questions from scripture, it's so challenging and so good for me!
If you've hung in through the whole post, then thanks for reading! I wanna leave you all with a favor to ask! Prayer for direction: hince my road sign, i'm at that point where i'm ready to finsih school, but i don't even have my major picked yet, and so many good things are happening and I'm Thankful and anxious to see what all God as in store according to his will for my life! I won't get into specifics, but that's my biggest struggle right now.. Direction of where God is leading me..... =)
(Gasp for breath) I'll end with just a few parting words/ picture!
MT sent me a random text message today, and a picture say 1,000 words, or maybe just 3! How sweet is this, dont you just love random displays of kidness? Do you have any to share? Love mushy things like this!!
