Sweet sweet summertime!

Hey Everyone!

I know I know, it's been a while. Sorry about that. Let me just give you a little update on my life as of late. The Griggs girls are now the Birchcrest babes...in other words, we found a house and successfully moved out and in. It was a grueling process, but its done and we love our new house! Despite a few glitches (ants, sinks that leak, lights that don't work etc...) we love it!

I graduated and got accepted into Grand Valley's social work grad program! I start this fall! I am SO excited, yet very very nervous. I don't have many details yet but that's where I'll be for the next two years...I can't wait.

What else what else. Oh my knee--it has stopped hurting, but that might be because I haven't been running in a while. I did run two miles yesterday, I'm trying to ease my way back into it, praying that it doesn't start hurting again, but we shall see.

Graduation was a beautiful day. My mom's got all those pictures, otherwise I'd post some. But yeah, it was pretty warm out May 22, but it was still nice. (except that my new shoes made my toes bleed! Let me just say I pray for the person who gets those shoes from Goodwill! Haha).

I got a job as well! I am now a front desk attendant at a Best Western. It's great! I've been working for about two and a half weeks now and I'm getting the hang of it. I love my boss and the other employees, so that's been fun.

I joined a small group at Ada Bible Church and we've been meeting weekly, and that's been a positive experience in my life. They are actually coming over to my house tonight and I'm excited to show off our new house and everything.

I'm doing the 90 day bible this summer--that's one of my summer goals. I'm half a day behind at this point, but for the most part I'm doing a fairly good job of keeping up with it if I do say so myself. The plan is to read 12 pages a day which takes anywhere from half an hour to forty five minutes. I should be done by August 27! I'm pretty excited about it. It's quite a bit thing to tackle, but I'm ready for it. Haha.

My good friend Emily is getting married July 10 and her bachelorette party is this Saturday night. I got my work switched so that I can go. I'm pretty excited. This will be my first bachelorette party. We're painting pottery, going to Olive Garden, opening presents, and then going out dancing. It should be a fun night!

Well as far as I know, that's about it that's going on in my life. Nothing too special, but fun nonetheless. I'm absolutely loving life! :) So thanks for reading.

Love to you all.
