Video Game Queen

For being a girl, I'm pretty good at video games. I think it's all the piano that gives me good hand-eye coordination. So today we ate lunch at the OP, and they have a Ms. Pac-Man video game. I played 4 times, and the one time I played 2-player against Bill, I beat the Hi-Score by about 2,000 points!! It must be the competition that brings it out in me. People must not play that game too much because I beat it about the third time through. That's not much warming up. But I was feeling pretty good about it. So I figured I would share it with all of you.

Last night, I listened to Chris Rice's "Untitled Hymn (Come to Jesus)" at least 30 times on repeat. Have you heard that song? It's amazing. What a reminder that no matter what season we are in life, it all comes back to Jesus.

One more thing - we started our wedding registry this weekend at Bed, Bath & Beyond. We picked out a formal china pattern that is so amazing; I absolutely love it. It was $29.99 a place setting, so I was happy with the price, too. So when I looked up our registry on their website yesterday, it came up at $14.99!! I was so shocked; I called my mom immediately, remembering that she wanted to buy our china for us. Apparently if you find it in a store, it will ring up at that price, but if they have to order it in from the manufacturer, they will charge $29.99 plus shipping. This is the best part for the bargain shopper in me - to now call to every BB&B known to man with a Fine China department and see if I can hunt down 12 place settings. If you clicked on the link, you'll see that Dillard's charges $80 per place setting, so the $30 is a great price itself. But the $14.99 is too much to pass up. I don't know how much luck we'll have, but it sure will be fun to try!

I love video games, too - aren't they the best? :)

I don't think I've ever heard that song.

And that's just too cool for $14.99! Score!
