A few more

Here's a couple more of Leah's going away party. We'll miss you, Leah.
Oh, yeah, thanks to Cilla and Cindy for the amazing Baby Monk cake. It ROCKED!

Cherish the Ladies

A few weeks ago we went to the Jackson Symphony Caberet and saw a GREAT Irish girls' band called Cherish the Ladies. Here are some fun pictures of all of us that went. If you've never heard of them, you should check it out.

Good times and Sad times

Hello, all. It's been awhile since we have written anything and we know that more people would probably look at our blog if we updated more, but we wanted to share some of our pictures with our friends on here. I (Janie) have really realized the value of friendship since Ben and I got married. It has been a real adjustment as far as getting to know the other ladies at our church and feeling a good connection with them, and also realizing that God has plans for everybody that might not always include me. Right now, a lot of my best best friends have moved out of Jackson. I have had to trust the Lord with all that I am to know that everything is going to work out. These first pictures are of Leah Cashion's going away party on Friday night. Leah is moving to Denver, CO to pursue greater things that God has for her that can't be accomplished here. We love Leah so much and will miss her so much. But, we pray God's blessings on her new life in CO and with Joe. The crazy one that looks like little monks are actually little baby monk salt and pepper shakers. You can ask for a story on that later. I love our friends and Ben and I are so thankful for them. I hope everyone enjoys these pictures and thanks for everyone's friendships that aren't in the pictures.

The great afternoon

Hello, all. I don't have a lot of time, and I don't have a lot to say. I just wanted everyone to know how much I enjoy the afternoons. I'm training for a 1/2 marathon right now (that is on April 29...i still have plenty of time) and I'm up to about 5 miles right now. It's crazy. So, I didn't run on Friday or Saturday, or Sunday for that matter. So, Monday rolls around. After a long day at school, and a cold that I'm trying to get, I decided not to run today. It is amazing how great you feel when you're not rushed! I hardly ever stop for anything, and this weekend has been a whole weekend of stopping and a lot of hanging out and not HAVING to do anything. Now, if I do this all of the time, my life would be a mess; however it's not all the time, and I don't want to give it up yet. On a normal afternoon, I would rush home, change clothes, run however many billion miles I'm supposed to run, get home just in time to fix dinner, and not really stop until 7:00 at least. Well, today, I just had a meeting at 4, then fixed was great. I have time to blog, I have time to do what I really need to do. I'm very excited about that today and that I'm going to go and watch the Bachelor with my girlfriends makes me happy, too. I hope you've had an excellent out-of-the-ordinary Monday, and if you haven't, maybe tomorrow will be that way. Have a great day!
