Epcot and How I Blog

We headed to Epcot with Ian's parents today.

I'm not really much of a fun of Epcot, but I was super impressed with alot of the improvements they have made there.... The Nemo ride was amazing! Like being submerged into the movie.

It almost moved me to tears.

I love me some Nemo.

We ate at an entirely too pricey Mexican restaurant, got some German chocolate, and a French pastry.

Then we had Chinese for dinner (PF Chang's for a very early Birthday dinner for me!)

We are super international, it appears.

I am headed to bed as soon as I finish writing this and am looking forward to a busy, busy, joyful weekend!


I've been thinking alot lately about how I blog and how intentional I am with my comments.

More specifically, I want to be real and honest when I say "I'm praying for you!" to other bloggers.

So, recently, I've started saying a comment about praying for them, and then, right then and there, stopping and saying a quick word to Dad about what's going on.

I am learning so much about how I ask for things and praying for others has taught me to be so much less self centered! (I hope at least.)

And hopefully, all of you bloggie friends are realizing that people actually are praying for the things that you ask for.

I just love this blog community!


Night Ya'll!

Big Day tomorrow!

That sounds like quite the day!

Thank you for your intentional prayer responses to prayer requests. I love this community (and am so blessed by it) too! It definitely feels a void I have of close Christian girlfriends in my city.

And PF Changs sounds so delicious! I wish I could eat there all the time. mmm. (happy early birthday!)

I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with your happenings after a large blogger absence on my part! When do you and your husband leave for training?

And you're definitely right about the praying part...and now believe me when I say that I am praying for you and your husband on this new crazy journey of your lives! :)

So glad you had fun! Hope your weekend is just as great!

I'd love some good "International" food. We are all home sick. I might just have to order in some chinese :)

How awesome to see others really taking the time to pray for others. New to your site but will probably be back beautiful wedding gown.

I have to pause and say a prayer right away like that too - it's so easy to forget, but I really do want to pray for the, so I have to just do it right then!

I also try to stop and say a prayer right then and there and then right it down too! I don't just want to say I am praying and then never do it. I have never been a huge fan of Epcot either because they have less rides than the other parks but they are definitely making improvements. I love the soar ride! So fun :)

what a wonderful day!

The blog world has brought such a new dimension of friendships into my life. Especially now, when we are still trying to develop a friendship with anyone out here (besides coworkers). Thank you for not only being a dear blog friend, but intentionally praying for me and all the others out there!
