Shoe Shopping

The Boyfriend wanted to get new walking shoes, so we went to the mall to do some price checks. While at the mall, we also walked around a furniture store. He bought us cinnamon roll food stuff and we played SkeeBall at Tilt. After the mall, we went to another furniture store and we found an awesome couch that I want one day.

Feeding the Homeless

Yesterday, while in bed before school, I was praying, like I try to do everyday and God put this homeless man on my heart.  I see this man from time to time when the boyfriend and I are going to his house, and I can't help but feel incredibly bad for him. Anyways, I was praying for this man like I felt God wanted me to and then I felt like I should take him some food. I texted the boyfriend about it and we came up with a plan to make spaghetti (because how often do they get real home cooked meals?) and take it to a few people.  This morning, we bought ingredients and went back to my house to make the spaghetti.  When it was ready, I put it into six different containers to hand out. I had the boyfriend put silverware and napkins in a sandwich bag and we also gave them a bottle of water.

The first person we gave food to was Bruce, the guy I was talking about.  He was so kind and appreciative.  I actually don't think I would mind talking to him again some day (even though I didn't really talk to him).  He actually holds a sign that says "Poetry for Food".  We helped him write it out today on a Little Caesar's pizza box and we also kind of decorated it with a smiley face heart and a bible verse.
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.  - 1 John 3:16

Did I mention that he is on youtube?

We also gave food to his friend, but she wasn't there at the time. A man laying near the library and two other women. We only gave away five because we couldn't find another person so we ate the sixth one ourselves. It was pretty delicious spaghetti, if I do say so myself. I really hope they enjoyed it!

Sunset Barbecue

Taken yesterday!
So, after we left the hospital, everyone was starving. Actually, they were hungry before we even got to the hospital, at least I was.  So, the guys decided to have a barbecue.  A few of them went to the grocery store and picked up some meats, corn, tortillas and some other food and we met at the park.  While the boyfriend was talking to his friends, I noticed how gorgeous the hills looked, so I kind of walked away over to the lake and started taking pictures.  I also got this amazing shot of the boats near the boathouse!

Basketball and Broken Ankles

Boyfriend and his friends had planned to play basketball.  They were doing so and one guy fell and broke two bones in his ankle, poor guy. So, we had to take him to the hospital, where we sat for like two hours.
