Happy Friday! I am praying that this weather shapes up for MN! We defnitely have green grass now! It is so crazy having this weather daily. I love myself a good sunny day. The pools are supposed to be opening this weekend. YAH! It has been a great week! I have been scrambling to get stuff done for my sister's bridal shower tomorrow! Here are some of my highlights from the week.....

I am still loving my new kitchen color! Andy and I have been wanting this passage of scripture in our kitchen for awhile now. I took advantage of naps earlier this week and painted it with some acrylic paint! I love it. It is us. It is a good reminder to make everyday count. It says:

18 Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 19 Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 20 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, 21 so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth. Deuteronomy 11: 18-21

Last Friday, I got to spend the day with my good friend Francoisé in the cities. We did our annual facials and shopping. We took baby Zakiyah with us. She was perfect! We stopped at West Elm and I am loving these vintage looking kitchen accessories! Do you recognize the name? TALA! My studio name. I didn't get them but they are cute.

Memorial Weekend was a bust weather wise. So we did lots of playing in the house. We had some fun get togethers with friends too! The girls were making a lego church here..... in the desert. Zion is working on the parking lot of cars here. :)

With my husband being a youth pastor, we are in the midst of graduation party season right now. It is our June every year. We hit up Nikki's last Sunday and she had a cookie bar. I was in heaven. So good.

On top of grad season, our youth group, The Gate, performs a annual play too! This year's play is called, "The Kingdom". It was AWESOME!!!!!!!! I can't get over how amazing it was. Andy's assistant YP, Jorden made this happen along with our amazing volunteers! I loved it. Our youth room was packed! We are performing it this sunday for 9:30 and 11 am service! Can't wait. I am proud of Gate mama!

Linking up with Jeanette and Lauren! Happy Friday! Have a blessed weekend. Think of me when I am hitting up grad parties, a wedding, a 3rd birthday party and my sister's bridal shower, oh and family time and church....... HA HA. wow. I need a coffee. NorthFace camel pack of coffee. Yes, please.

Day in the life..... Christy Cass.

Blessed. Grateful. Overwhelmed. Still smiling.....
