Church, Dinner and a Movie

A recap of this weekend's events:

This week at church we had the privilege of listening to a testimony from Michael Franzese, an ex mob captain turned follower of Christ. His story is amazing... and it is unreal to see how God has used this man. Take a look for yourself:


His story left you wanting to hear more... with both a curiosity and fascination into such a high profile life of crime, transformed into a life serving the Lord. Needless to say, I will be reading his book.

After church we headed to the Olive Garden... where I proceeded to lose my marbles with the breadsticks. Why do I like carbs so cotton pickin' much? Anyway, we had a $25 gift certificate which we were all excited about... and guess how much our bill was? $24.95! HA! We didn't even calculate it or order being price conscious... that is just how it worked out. Must have been our lucky day. ;)

And finally, my last order of blog business: UP!


Oh, I loved this movie! I didn't expect it to be quite so sad... but it had an overall good underlying message.


SQUIRREL!
What a good doggie... I couldn't help but be reminded of my own poochies... how lovable they are and how much they desire to please their owners.


My Dolly and Dallas are such good doggies. I love them to pieces.

Now who is ready to watch some bachelorette tomorrow? Gosh, I was admantly opposed to getting sucked into this again... and here I am. Waiting for Mondays.

Til next time...

    Hi Melissa,
    We went to Olive Garden last week after my son's graduation. I know what you mean about carbs. My hubby had the filled pasta tubes with sausage, and the endless salad and breadsticks for under $10! Hard to find bargains like that anymore! It was fun reading your 8 post. So you're moving back to CA? Where is Hanford? Never heard of it, must not be in SoCal.
