I cleaned my room, which actually didn't take as long as I thought it would. But, I also didn't get rid of much as I thought I would either...Oh well.

This day was basically dedicated to One Tree Hill's series finale, other than our Young Adults service that I was involved with at church.
The service was great! Our Pastor spoke on how God is our source of life. When we aren't connected to Him, basically we are dead inside...and it is so true! I went through a really dark season like this where I was going to church, but not necessarily spending time with God. Over the past 5-6 months or so, I have been and it has seriously changed so much! I have so far to go still, but when I look back on where I was and how much more joy I have now, I never want to go back. :)
After service, I went straight home to watch American Idol, then the series finale of One Tree Hill! And that wasn't complete without a little Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream!
Yesterday, my mom and I got our nails done at the salon! I had only had acrylics done once before for my 8th grade graduation, but it was nothing like this. I didn't realize they massage your hands and arms with lotion and a hot stone. It felt so good! I thought it was worth it just for that! LOL. I got shellack on my nails this time, which is basically like a fancy coating for your own nails and you can pick out any color. The color I picked was a little too light, but I still think it'll look nice for Easter! Plus, they feel healthier now :)
We stopped at The Tea Bar to get something to drink, and were just in time for Easter choir practice.
The church was pretty chaotic! Just about everyone and their brother was there setting up everything for this weekend, holding department meetings to train everyone, and the band/choir was practicing for worship! It's so exciting, though, thinking about all the new people that will be there Sunday morning and possibly accepting Christ into their heart's. It makes all of the hard work worth it!
My mom and I went to lunch and ran our usual errands, and the rest of today has been just hanging out at home. And me really freaking myself out, but that's a whole other story. Anyway, happy easter weekend/Good Friday! Bunnies, candy and Easter baskets are great...but in the midst of all the family and fun, don't forget about Jesus and what He did for us on the cross that day! He is the reason we celebrate this season too :)
