Weekend Recap

Tuesday already? Wow! I was hoping to be able to post yesterday but work was quite hectic. Well things are sorta starting to settle down at the Jefferson house!

This weekend was great too :) I was able to head to the Brad Paisley and Darius Rucker concert at DTE on Friday. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to get out of work in time; thankfully, my boss let me go and Morgan and the girls waited on me!

Can I just say, Darius Rucker is BETTER in person than on the radio. I love his current country album and his older Hootie and The Blowfish records too. He played both types of songs, it was so AMAZING!

Morgan's boyfriend, Marc was able to buy the tickets for us and WOW we were close... as you can see from the pictures we were ten rows from where the stage comes out. I couldn't believe it when we started to walk down to our seats we just kept going closer and closer and closer... :) It was great, I felt so blessed to be able to go in the first place and the up close seats were a nice treat!

Okay okay, I'll stop bragging but I just wanted to let all of you know how great of a concert it was!!!! Thanks Morgan and Marc I love you both :)

So after a fun filled Friday, I woke up and worked around our new house all day! Braylon was a big helper for mommy and daddy for the most part... Here are a couple of pictures of our progress this far. Of course we still have a lot of work to do; but, we think it's coming along nicely :)

I didn't get a chance to really put anything on our walls yet; but you get the jist of it right? Our room was messy so I didn't really take any pictures of that or our bathroom; our new bedroom set though is absolutely GORGEOUS! I'm so thankful that God is providing all of this for us. He is so great, and my sister is so right... anxiety is all a mind game. Lately, I've been so anxious and I'm not sure why. I am trying to learn to take it day by day and know that God already has it figured out.

"Take captive every thought to make it odedient to Christ." 2 Corinthians 10:5
"A heart at peace gives life to the body" Proverbs 14:30

Thank you Emily for the quotes--- I've been reading them all afternoon!

Then on Saturday night, I had Becky Mohn's bachelorette party! It started around 6 pm and the weather couldn't have been better. Sandy did a cook out for all us girls and the food was DELICIOUS! Then we head downtown to Tiffany's where Becky took full advantage of being the 'Bachelorette'!! I had brought this card game that of course had Becky doing all types of funny dares--- she took it like a champ! Congrats to Becky and Vince, can't wait for the Wedding August 7th :)

Sunday was all about relaxing with my baby Bray while daddy was away at one of his numerous basketball game hehe :) Later that afternoon I headed down to Zehnder's to attempt to make some extra money this month (( didn't happen )). OH well, gave it an honest effort; like I said, God has it under control!!

I hope everyone had as great of a weekend as we did at Jefferson Junction! I'll leave you with a picture of the sweetest boy of all time, if you're having an ugly day, he's sure to make it better :) ONE love, Abby


  1. My lovely sister. I absolutely love reading your blogs. I am going to start blogging soon. I am so glad you had such a great weekend. The house looks AWESOME. I can't wait to see it.

    I"m glad you could make use of that e-mail. It's really helping me a lot to remember that God is in the drivers seat. I don't have to grab the wheel. It doesn't mean it's going to be easy, but his will is for our best- good or bad we will make it and we will live and breath because of Him. I'm so proud of you and I love you more than you'll ever know! xoxoxox.

  2. Ok, following ya now Ab... waiting on Em to start hers now.
