Hey Craig, who is also coming to MN to find out if he will be coming to Roma sent me this video on Facebook that is from a friend of his who is a missionary in Naples, I found it informative so I thought you might to, in case you were wondering why one should go to Italy to spread the Gospel. If any of you know a better way to show a Facebook video on Blogger, let me know. Till then I also added another video from youtube that shows the need at the bottom of all the posts, enjoy.
I don't know how you qualify success but last night is what I would qualify as a successful shopping trip. I had just about two hours to find the much needed winter apparel for my trip to Minnesota. A true California girl I have no cold weather dress clothes needed for the week in the chilly Minneapolis.
I had not had the money nor the time to head out to the mall until last night following a Youth Trip to Sky High I grabbed my two faithful shopping buds; my sister Krista and friend Jenny (thanks girls!) and we high tailed it to the mall. With their help I was able to snag some fantastic new clothes and even better deals!
I went to New York and Company and took joy in the amazing by one get one 75% off sale they were having on pants and sweaters. Convenient that was. I found two great sweaters, two pairs of pants and a great shirt. At Macy's I also got my first pair of wedges, super cute and over 50% off! In all I saved more than I spent, and I had just received a Thanksgiving gift of money from my favorite Lady, Grandma Selma, so really it was almost nothing out of pocket!
Something to be truly thankful for!
Now I am set for the cold, and ready to print my boarding pass and get to getting!
This is not the group I am trying to join, but it gives you an idea...
Point and Purpose
Hello friends, if you are reading this you have been invited to by me! That makes you pretty special and means that you are in the know about my Secret Life. If you are wondering what Secret Life, you are a little slow, but I still love you!
The Secret Life that this blog is going to keep you up to date on is my application process and potential new life in Roma, Italy. I don't know why it took me so long to figure out this is the easiest way to keep you all posted (pun intended) on the process. But now that I have finally figured it out you can check out all the latest on here.
But please remember that it is called The Secret Life of for a reason, there is no guaranteeing that I will be accepted and so I have not as of yet let everyone in on the idea of me being a missionary in Roma. So shhhhh.
