I Heart Weekends!

Here's a recap of my oh-so-fun weekend!

(1) Friday, I arrived home to my first ever Graze box delivery.  I LOVE getting packages in the mail so that was way exciting! Graze is a subscription snack delivery service.  For $5 per week, they package and send 4 healthy snacks right to your door.  So far I have only tried one of the snacks and it was really yummy!

(2) I started off my Saturday at the hair salon, as usual with Tangie B.  Just curious, does your hair stylist get you surprise gifts just because??? Mine does! She gave me the cutest blinged out coffee cup and starbucks coffee!  She’s trying to encourage me to be a good financial steward and not stop at starbucks every day.  Yea, love her.  If you need a great hair stylist in the Dallas Metroplex definitely give Tangie a call. 
Saturday night, I had the extreme honor of celebrating one of my friends by surprising her in a flash mob! It was so much fun and I got to cross that one off my 30 bucket list!! You can read more details and watch the flashmob video on Team Howard Blog.
(3) Sunday morning I broke the Daniel Fast over breakfast with Josh.  It was so delicious!! Boy oh boy am I EXCITED to have coffee back in my life!  Overall, the fast was really great.  I certainly had challenging days but the primary goal for me was to draw closer to the Lord and I feel like that was accomplished.  Let me be completely honest and say that trying to take on OTN90 and the Daniel Devotional simultaneously was a bit of a stretch for me.  I was not able to maintain both reading plans, however, I am still on track with the Old Testament reading.  I will complete the Daniel Devotional when, I reach Daniel in the OTN90 reading plan.  My greatest takeaway from the fast is the importance of prioritizing God in my life.  Denying myself the foods that I love was one small way to consistently choose God throughout my day.  This is something I should be doing each day well beyond the fast.
(4) Then, I was blessed to hear Josh share a message with the youth at church about biblical dating.  I LOVE to listen to this man talk about the Lord! 

Last, but not least, we enjoyed the Superbowl/Beyonce Concert with friends to close out the weekend. Josh is a lifelong 49ers fan and was quite disappointed at the final score.   I was fairly disappointed with the quality, or lack thereof, I saw in the superbowl commercials.  However, I really loved the Budweiser Commercial.  It made me smile and say, “Awwwww.” I also really liked the “So God Made a Farmer” Dodge commercial.  It reminded me of my dad.
Make it a great week friends!
