This Friday is it!!

12 Oct

Bobby’s fight is this Friday the 15. I’m excited and I know he will do great. But, I think I’m even more excited for Thursday. I have been planning all week for Thursday and it’s not so exciting except that the fighters have been sweating and running and eating baby amounts of food all week to make weight and I am cooking a feast for them after weigh ins!

Bobby is friends with several guys fighting so we invited them over to our smorgasbord. I have a large grocery list of everything I will need for Thursday plus our regular grocery list.

So on the menu for Thursday is:

Homemade Lasagna
Dinner Rolls with Honey Butter
Mashed Potatoes
Deviled Eggs
Pretzel Salad
Peach Cobbler
and my friend Olivia is bringing over queso and tostadas with julio’s salsa.

We should have about 8-10 people crammed in our apartment and all of us enjoying a great meal. I’ll post the recipes tomorrow and let you know how they turn out!

By the way…if you want a ticket to the fights they are $20 from me or $25 at the door. We only have 14 tickets left and they WILL sell out at the door. So come check out the fights at the Embassy Suites and Conference Center in San Marcos!! I’ll be the little crazy lady up front with my friends and my parents all screaming our heads off!! If you can’t find us that way…look for the shirts they say Submit2Christ. 🙂

Be Blessed, Adri

The wrong side of the bed.

4 Oct

This morning I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I was having the strangest dreams…involving high school field trips, my parents and this Plants vs. Zombies game. On top of that, in my dream I was sick.

My alarm went off at 6 a.m. and I thought well I’m sick anyways so I’ll hit snooze a couple of times and call my boss at 7 to let him know I wont make it in today, except I am not sick! My dream made me think I was. I ended up accidentally turning off my alarm. I woke up at 7:20 and realized what a crazy dream I was having and that I wasn’t sick and I needed to get my booty out of bed to be at work by 8. Anyways…I made it to work 10 minutes late, but everyone else was running late too! Ha and I thought I was going to have some explaining to do.

There is a meaning to this ramble, I promise. I was so grumpy because I was running late and just in a really foul mood, but it all turned out okay. My husband got up and made me a grilled chicken salad to take for lunch, I managed to get a cup of coffee made before walking out the door, I was not the only one late to work, the weather is a beautiful 57 degrees, and I have the most amazing view of the sun shining down through the trees at my desk.

Does this ever happen to you? You get so wrapped up in what seems like a huge ordeal and really it’s…nothing. Just reading this again now makes me laugh at how caught up I got in the moment.

It reminds me of the teacher in Ecclesiastes 1-3…2 “Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher. “Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless.”…What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the 9 What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun…14 I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind…12 I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. 13 That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil—this is the gift of God. 14 I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him.

I think God must laugh at us…most of the time. 🙂 I believe he has that great fatherly chuckle, like he knows a great secret that we couldn’t possible understand because we are too young. And whenever I have a day like this and I get upset and want to throw a tantrum…I end up feeling so embarrassed.

Sorry God. I woke up with my mind on the things of this world and focused on me; how selfish. Everything I “have” isn’t even mine. You are just loaning it to me until I come back home. I hope I can make you proud, I hope I can accomplish all the things you have planned out for me. I know you already see it all, like it’s already done, but I don’t. I feel stuck sometimes and I’m looking for the easy button, but I’m waiting until I hear you say, “Go, take the next step.”

Even though I make plans, it really is meaningless in a wonderful way. I may have woken up on the “wrong side of the bed,” but He had me exactly where He wanted. Maybe I wouldn’t have heard Him this morning if I had done things on my own terms.

Be Blessed, Adri

Hello world! 10 Goals

24 Sep

I recently decided to restart a blog. I used to have one and to be honest…it wasn’t good. Now, that was a few years and a different lifestyle ago. I am a different person. I am a wife, a leader, a … well you can read that on the About Adri page.

Now I’m writing to keep myself on track as I enter a new season in my life. I strive to follow God‘s will everyday after all…the reason we breathe is to sing of His glory.

I need a place to put all my thoughts and plans so I don’t drive my husband completely crazy with all my questions and ideas…so this is it.

“Goals are dreams with work clothes on.” -Dave Ramsey

Goal #1: Wake up by 6 am (earlier if possible) to work out (C25k) and spend more time with God before work.
I guess this is more two goals in one…

Goal #2: Run a 5k.

Goal #3: Pay off all debts…Including school loans and only use a credit card in an emergency.

Goal #4: Buy our first house.

Goal #5: Travel to different places around the world: Brazil, Australia, Italy, France, London, Beijing, Greece, Fiji, Hawaii, Alaska, Disney World and Disney Land once or twice :), Times Square, Montreal, Niagara Falls…. I could go on, but you get the picture right?

Goal #6: Open a restaurant/bakery/coffee shop/hang out that specializes in gourmet sandwiches and amazing desserts. Seriously, I would love to open a place that incorporates all of these things. I don’t know where yet, but I know my husband would love to do it too, and my mom, and my good friend Olivia. We have the work force we just need the money. 🙂

Goal #7: Adopt a Wolf hybrid. I know this might sound weird, but they are beautiful! Just look! This of course would not happen until we accomplish goal #4 so we have room and a yard! But, look at the cute little puppy, only 9 weeks old, and then an adult below.

Wolf Hybrid Adult

Goal #8: Eat natural and local foods.

Goal #9: Have a few babies. A boy and a girl, and their names will be Noah and Layla. 🙂  This is several years from now….calm down Mom, not yet. Plus, what if I change my mind about names…?

Goal #10: Live everyday as though it may be the last one and follow God’s will first above all my personal goals even if they are never accomplished.

Like it says in James 4:13-16 14 How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. 15 What you ought to say is, “If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.” 16 Otherwise you are boasting about your own plans, and all such boasting is evil.

So, If you want me too God, I will accomplish the goals I have placed. If not, I will be happy with whatever you place in my path.

Be Blessed, Adri
