The NC State Fair 2010

Derek and I went to the Fair by ourselves this year. While we were there, we found some other friends that were there by themselves too! We met up and made a double date out of it. Hannah and I sat and talked and so did Derek and Adam. We met them at about 7:00pm and it was 8:00pm that we found an empty bench and sat. We knew the fireworks were not until 9:45 so we figured we would be long gone before then. Well, much to our surprise, we were still sitting on the bench at 9:30pm. We decided to part ways before the fireworks and watch them closer to our cars. It was one of the best times at the Fair we have had. We had a date night and a double date all in one! :) Here are some picture to show our fun time!

Adam and Hannah rode the Ferris Wheel.

Here We Go Again...

It has been 11 days since I last blogged. Can't believe how time just slips away!!

Wow! October has been a very interesting and busy month. It is always busy for me as at work this month. :) It is good! I would rather be busy than slow. That is what I tell myself every time I feel like I cannot get everything done. :) Be happy it is not slow.

A few October/November Happenings for the Georges:

1. I hosted a 31 Party for one of my friends. She is starting it as a side business. I looked at her magazine and fell in love with all the awesome items in it. I just knew I needed to host a party so, I could sell enought to get a free purse. :) Well my party did really well and I got 2 new purses, a new wallet, and a large tote with a "G" on it. Along with this i was able to get some Chrsitmas presents for really cheap! I was stoked! :) Derek and I were not sure how we were going to do Christmas this year and this really helped. If you are interested in 31 items or want to host a party feel free to contact Jade her website is: mythirtyone.com/jade I am sure she would love to hear from you.

2. I am playing on a flag football team. Yes, my family has been cracking up about this. They are all coming out to see me play on Saturday. They said they are tailgating but, I have threatened them. Hopefully they will not do that.

3. The State Fair! This is always a highlight for us. We will go and eat! That is our favorite thing to do at the Fair. We try to eat better through the beginning of the month so we can totally slurge at the Fair!! I cannot wait to go!! :)

4. We have a few Youth Events coming up at church. We are having a Fall Retreat October 29-30. I am so excited about this for me and for the the youth. I think it will be a great time of growth and encouragement. I am so excited to see how this goes! Please be in prayer for the leaders and the youth that will be coming. Please pray the the youth will bring friends that might not be saved. Hopefully this will be a great outreach opportunity. :)

The youth will also have a Fall Clean-up at the beginning of November. We will go and help some of our homebound members by cleaning their yards.

5. I am hosting a Baby Shower for a dear friend. I am doing this as a youth event as well. This lady and her husband do so much for our youth, they are amazing and we love them dearly! :) I am looking forward to that coming up.

So, this is a few of the many activities that will be happening with us! I will try to update with pictures as much as possible. :)

Happy Fall!! By the way...LOVING this cooler weather. Bring on the sweaters!! =)

October = Fall

Wow, I cannot believe it has been over a month since I last blogged. Sorry to all my followers. I had a crazy month last month and it is only getting crazier. I am trying to not let my blogging lag behind. I like to blog. Okay, so lets start out this month with goals. :) I did not post any goals for September so I feel like I have a clean slate. :)

October:

-Sit on my couch and read with the windows open and a pumpkin candle burning
-Read a book that is thought provoking
-Spend solitary time in prayer and reading my Bible daily. (I struggle with this but
more and more I am realizing how important it is).
-Pray about what I want to pursue for my Masters Degreee (Make a decision and stick
to it-I tend to change my mind every week).
-Think about what I need for Christmas decorations
-Start Christmas shopping



I have not made a lot of goals because I want to be able to accomplish all of them. :) I will hopefully be blogging more this month as well. :)
