Today’s Verse

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

So many times Satan seduces us into a flat, 2 dimensional Christianity – going to church and doing good deeds. But God calls us to a three dimensional faith. He wants us to love him with all of our being in all of our actions and with all of our might.


Hola amigos!

  I can only hope that you all had as great of a weekend as I did.  Well Saturday, at least.  Friday night was spent at our girls’ basketball game.  Kind of uneventful, but they did win!  Can you believe it’s officially February!?  Before I know it, it’ll be time for March Madness! 🙂


Anyway, I knew Saturday morning at 10AM, we had to be at our church for family pictures for the church directory, so I wanted to get a head start on my workout.  I woke up around 7AM, grabbed a Deep Chocolate Vitatop [unpictured, but you know what they look like ;)] and got to work on the stationary bike.  The good news is, I kept myself entertained for 2 hours watching Big Daddy & Facebooking.

This movie is such a classic.  I could watch it 100 times and it never gets old…

Anyway, I showered and prettied up for the pictures.  I had also prepared a bag of clothes {mainly Underarmour}to take with me to the church so I could get my run in afterward.  I packed a Jonagold for after pictures (pre-run), too!  I ended up only running about 4 1/2 miles, because I knew I wanted to be back in time to shower and go to lunch with the family.  Yes, I had 2 showers in by 11:30 AM 🙂  Squeaaaaky clean.

We hit up Subway for some sandwiches, where I got a 6-inch turkey breast sub on wheat bread, sans cheese with lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, onion, sweet peppers, banana peppers, green peppers, and oregano.  It was STUFFED with veggies and SO yummy.

This really hit the spot 🙂

Then I had some plain Oikos for dessert.

Greek yogurt = protein powerhouse.

We had plans with Jan (the Jonagold bearer!) to go to the Winter Jam 2010 where we’d get to see lots of awesome Christian bands like Third Day, Tenth Avenue North, Sidewalk Prophets, Fireflight, and Newsboys.  It was being held at the Bryce Jordan Center at Penn State and she was going to  meet us at the house.  She and I are like this:

She EVEN brought me MORE apples!  I love her.  I really do.

The trip really wasn’t bad.  We got there around 3PM and visited with Bek for about an hour or so and then we decided we better grab a bite to eat before we go into the concert.

Doors opened at 5PM and since it was first come first serve ($10 at the door, can’t beat that!) we wanted to make sure we got in!  Not to mention, the pre-concert started around 5:30-6PM.

Bek & Jan suggested this AWESOME local place called “The Deli”.  The interior was really cute and they had two seperate rooms.  A darker one placed close to the bar and a room with lots of natural lighting where the entire ceiling was basically windows.

Our room was a little more cozy and intimate

They had LOTS that looked good to me on the menu:

I decided on the Lite Turkey Burger with a side salad & steamed broccoli.

My salad: greens, mushrooms, onion, carrots, & raspberry vinaigrette.

My salad came about the same time that my family’s appetizer came:

Loaded potato skins.

 By the time they were finished and my salad was gone, our meals were out! 

Turkey burger on a multi-grain toasted bun with lettuce, tomato, onion, lite sour cream, & steamed broccoli.

This was SOOOOOOO good!  I was so happy with my selection.  I loved that there were so many tasty options!  I knew I was craving a burger though, so this was perfect.  Very flavorful!

After dinner, we stopped at Starbucks on the way back to the car incase we were going to have to wait outside in a line.  We wanted to make sure we had some nice hot beverages to keep us insulated!:)

My Starbucks = Large coffee + Sugar Free Vanilla & Caramel Syrup

We headed into the concert and found our seats.  The bands were AMMMMAAAZING.  We had an absolutely fabulous night.  I’ll have to upload the concert pics and try to get the video uploaded of one of the bands for you to check out later tonight! 🙂
