Friday Randoms

Warning: This post is very random. Good luck trying to keep up :)

As most of y'all know, I started my new job as a nanny this week. It has been such a wonderful experience, and I know I am going to continue to love it. It has actually been a very easy first week. The youngest got sick with the flu yesterday morning =\ poor thing... so I only had to watch the other two for a couple of hours after they got home from school. I wanted to get them out of the house, so we went to the library & chik-fil-a for a snack. We will likely be doing something similar this afternoon since the youngest is still running a fever. I sure hope she gets to feeling better soon! I also hope that the other two kiddos don't get sick (me either, for that matter).

I am so looking forward to spending a relaxing weekend with my hunny. It's supposed to rain all weekend, so I foresee lots of movie watching, cuddling, and book reading. We are also considering visiting a local church this Sunday. There are so many churches around here and lots of different dominations to choose from. I figure Matt and I can start visiting a different church every Sunday until we find one that's perfect for us. Matt grew up attending Methodist and Baptist churches, and I have attended the same Episcopal church my entire life. We both want to check out churches around here that are these dominations as well as probably a Lutheran church. We really do not know much about Lutheran churches. There are TONS of Lutheran churches around here, and hardly any where we are from. We have heard that it's similar to Episcopal, so we want to check it out. If anyone knows anymore about it, I would love to hear from you. Hopefully, we will find a church that we fall in love with. We are hoping to find a more contemporary service, a congregation that includes younger couples, and a church that has programs for people in their 20's... like a Bible Study group.

Moving on to my next random thought, I am currently reading the book Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. I am on Chapter 6 and still having a hard time getting into it. Has anyone else read this? Since this book is being made into a movie, I thought I would read it before it came out. I love watching movies and seeing how different they are from the actual book. I will have to say typically the book is much better! I'll let y'all know what I think once I finish it.

Miss Tiffani from Lifes-A-Blog passed on the Stylish Blogger Award to me this week! Thanks so much for thinking of me :) All of my followers really brighten my day!
