    28. When was the last time you…

      1. …snuggled with a cute animal?
      Saturday – my boyfriend’s kittens and puppy dog

      2. …reorganized or cleaned your room and felt awesome about it?
      uh… MONTHS ago… I need to do that again…

      3. …were super moved by something you learned at church?
      At CHURCH I’d say almost 2 years now. That was when God’s great love pulled me back to Him at camp and every opportunity to learn about Him was an opportunity for exponential growth. But I am still moved by God frequently in my quiet time or at work.

      4. …overcame a fear?
      I don’t know if I’ve overcome it yet, but there was a particular aspect of my job that scared me to death. Every day was a choice to overcome. Sometimes I succeeded sometimes I failed. But God has blessed me with a new position approximately a month ago so I no longer have that fear.

      5. …learned something interesting at school?
      Well, 2 and a half years ago considering I’m graduated

      6. …splurged on something for yourself?
      I’ve splurged a lot recently, but they were all for gifts for other people. For me, I’d say a couple of weekends ago, but it wasn’t really a splurge, I was out of makeup.

      7. …thought long and hard about your future plans?
      Almost every day! Lot’s happening this stage in life: potentially moving, looking to marry….

      8. …went on a road trip?
      Long time, like YEARS, like over 10. But I’m going on a road trip in November with my boyfriend’s family!!

      9. …made someone’s day with an act of kindness?
      Probably last week when I drew my boyfriend TONS of pictures.

      10. …did something fun with your family?
      Probably Easter… I’d say
