I am so excited to share this book review!!  I've been following GirlDefined for a few years now and have enjoyed every book they have published and have grown and been encouraged so much by their ministry.  I signed up to be apart of their launch team for their new devotional and was so beyond excited to be chosen!  This journey has been so exciting and fun and I'm so glad I got a chance to be a part of it! I love Kristin and Bethany’s heart for the Lord.   They’re desire to put Him above all else in their lives and to share and encourage girls and young women to do the same.   The thing that first stood out to me as I began to read their Shine Bright Devotional was this line in their intro- “just keep in mind that this devotional isn’t intended to replace time in God’s word each day; it’s meant to supplement it.” I think this is so important to realize as we start each new devotional or christian book.   We are meant to read God’s word and be in daily fellowship with Him.   T

My b-day. :)

Ok, so for my birthday, that was forever ago, we...first went to a book store in Fallbrook that I was disappointed in (sorry Emely).  I couldn't find anything there that I wanted.  But I had been wanting to go for a while so I am glad I finally was able to go.  We had lunch after that and then went to a park to do some photography.  The next few 'hundred' pictures are of that:

Owen really got into...and this is no joke. He loved it!

Me! Evelyn has the camera now...

Some more of Evelyn :)

A pay phone!?!

 So after the park we got smoothies and headed over to Target where I got some clothes and stuff, than we went back home.  We went out to Olive Garden that night for dinner and came home and watched a movie and had cake.
Now my birthday party was a whole different story.  It was just as fun, but in different ways.
This year I had a combined sleepover with two other friends at my house.  It was a lot of fun.  We went to the mall for a scavenger hunt, which was so much fun and has lots of stories on its own.  We had pizza and soda for dinner, played Catch Phrase and Just Dance and then watched Maleficent. 
All the girls. 
Us, three girls on the right are the birthday girls!
These were the party 'thank you' gifts.  Bookmarks.
