Weekend Roundup

Hello there readers! Last week was exhausting from work and school so I planned for a relaxing weekend . . . well that didn't happen quite well. It was packed full of fun! Friday we went and saw Moneyball {which I highly recommend going to see}. Saturday some friends went to see Alabama dominate on Ole Miss turf, and Sunday we took a quick trip to Birmingham to hear Katie Davis speak.

Kelsey, Meredith, and myself at the game! We took a 3.5 hour road trip to Mississippi. I must say one of my favorite things are car rides, there is always such interesting conversation.

John David scored us some awesome seats in the visitor player's section . . . we were right next to the end zone!

Here's a snap shot not soon after the second half started of the Ole Miss student section. Let's just say it cleared out pretty quickly.

Final score: 52 - 7!!

But the real highlight of the game was Trent Richardson's uncle sat in front of us. Which was wildly entertaining, 1) because he got really excited every time Trent had a great play {which was just about every other drive} and 2) because it was funny watching fans try to get his attention/ high five him when Trent had a great run/ get a picture with him.
Back in March of 2010 I posted about Katie Davis. Katie has an amazing story where she moved to Uganda right out of high school at the age of 18 and now is 23 with 13 adopted children, living out the word of God. Her blog shares her stories and tribulations of life and how God is working through her to help others. Some friends and I were very fortunate to see her last night at The Church of Brook Hills, also the home church of David Platt. She is one humble lady for sure! I love how she has done so many great things with her life, but when people give her praises she just refutes them and says that she is just "doing what God called me to do as a follower of Him".
