Happy Fall!

"Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving."
Colossians 4:2
Kelly's Korner is featuring fall decorations so I thought I would share with you the Radford fall decor.
Dining Room Fall Arrangment

Fall Wreath- I had fun making it.

This is the top of the fridge.

I hope you enjoyed seeing all the fall decorations. I always enjoy decorating for fall. Fall is such a great time to stop and be thankful for all that God has given us. I wanted to share with you that my brother is overseas and he was slated to do a 14 day mission. We were really nerves about this and we kept taking it to God. We just found out that for now it has been cancelled! We serve an awesome God and I am so thankful that I am his daughter. Please continue to pray for the men and women who serve our country.

Weekend Round Up

This weekend was pretty low key. Friday night we went out for mexican. Saturday morning I ran and then worked on our house. I love to arrange and rearrange. After 5 months of living in this house it is finally starting to look like a home. On Saturday night we had some friends over to conclude my birthday celebration. We had lots of fun! BB and KT

Fun Fall Weekend

Grandma, Papa, Mama, Aunt Angie
Fall is in the air and although I am a "Summer" girl I am really enjoying this weather. We had a busy weekend, but it was a fun weekend. Friday night we went to dinner with Caroline and Justin to celebrate my birthday. Saturday I started at 6:00 am running my long run of the week and as soon as I finished I jumped in the car to head to Snow Hill for the Historic District yardsale. The entire downtown and one BIG yardsale was heaven for this girl. I got a precious lamp and of course a chair. I will share pics later this week. I headed back to Wilson to meet Ms. Lillie for a lunch date and shopping. Then last night we had over our families for a sprimp stew to celebrate my birthday and my mom's birthday. This is the first time that we have hosted our families since we have been married. That was the perfect ending to our Saturday. Today we went to church and then we met Mr. Johnny, Ms. Patty, Matthew, Mary Beth and Bailey for lunch. Bailey showed us how she can walk like a big girl. I am not sure where time goes, because it seems like yesterday we were visiting her for the first time. Tonight, I put out our fall decorations in the yard. I tell you I am reminded daily that we serve such an awesome God that blesses us daily beyond measure. This weekend was a simpler reminder that we are truly blessed.

Dowdy was so tired after he entertained everyone Saturday night that he passed out!! If you would have told me a year ago that he would be my baby I would have told you that you were out of your mind. I tell that face has this girl hooked. :)
