What's Up?

It's been a GREAT eight months, since I moved to Kentucky.

I've had wonderful times with friends, old and new, and I am excited to say that I went full time at Answers in Genesis! I'm still working in food service, however, I've been keeping my eyes open for a Graphic Design position to open.

So, what have I been up to in my free time?

Well, since I've gone full time, I'm working a lot more, so I'm not getting as much time to myself.

I spend a lot of time with friends. Whether it's Tuesday game night or baseball games, we have a blast together.

I got together with my friend Sarah, who I first met in 2014 during the CAPTURE Kansas Workshop.

We met Spidey!

Meredith, Lynae and I enjoying a roomie supper.

Visiting the Newport Aquarium with a group of museum staff.

Maddie, Niki, Meredith, Caitlin and I sneaking a girls groupie during a Reds game, when the boys when to get food.

I'm just a baseball fan in general.

Maddie, Jonathon, Tim, Matt, Elijah, Niki, Caitlin, me, and Meredith.

I met this cutie.

Evening outing! We enjoy eating dinner together and then taking walks and watching Downton Abby.

Puzzle night!

My great aunt Debbie and her husband came to visit in October.

I went to visit my family at the end of October.

We got a new dog while I was there.
Meet Alastair! <3

We are called "The Troubles" for no apparent reason. :P

Christmastime at the home of Katie, who lives in a mansion that is rented out to young people.


Game nights are the best.

I got my ears pierced! Abby and Sarah were my emotional support. XD

We went to Chick-fil-A afterwards, and then visited the Disney Store.


I finally got to meet Christine, and got to see Elisabeth again. We met at the Ark and enjoyed a few hours of visiting and giggling together.



All in all, it's been a wonderful time. I've got an awesome church and great friends. I am SOOOOOOOOOO blessed to have this community around me.

Until next time!

O Give Thanks

O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy endureth for ever.
Psalm 107:1

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, and know that I haven't forgotten my blog, or any of you faithful readers.

I pray your Thanksgiving is filled with love, laughter and lots of thanks to the Lord our God for the blessings He has poured on our country.

Lots of love,
Elizabeth

Blue among Reds

I am no longer living with my parents. I'm not even in the same state as them! I traded the initials "KS" for the initials "KY".


Yep, that's right! I now live in Kentucky.

Random Fact: I live right near the Kentucky/Ohio border, which means there's a lot of Cincinnati Reds happening up here, which also means that since I am a Kansas City Royals fan, I stand out a little. XD Totally fine with me!

I got a job at the Creation Museum, and am now living with two other young ladies, who also work there. 

It's definitely cooler up here, closer to the mountains. But only by a little. 

We traveled up on Saturday, July 22nd. Just mom, Dad, Jubilee, Samuel, Caleb and myself. After about 12 hours of driving, we arrived at around 8:45 in the evening, unloaded the 15 passenger van, and went off to eat at a local McDonald's.

Sunday. We visited the church that my new roomies attend, and then we drove around to different locations, just so I could get familiar with my surroundings.

Then we had dinner at Culver's :P

Monday. We visited the Creation Museum. The younger ones either couldn't remember it, or had never even been.

Caleb rather enjoyed the goats at the petting zoo.



I was so excited to see my friend, Sarah! She was one of the attendees of the last CAPTURE Kansas workshop. <3

Tuesday. I stayed home most of the day, but I did venture out after lunch, to go find the tea place that I'd found online. "Yesterday's Tea Cafe and Matcha Bar" is fanTEAstic!

Pretty much finished up my room.


Wicket is adorable!


And Widdle is hilarious.

Most entertaining!

Watching Rogue One with my roomies.

Wednesday. Well, right now I am sitting in the nearest Chick-fil-A, sipping my root beer, enjoying the instrumental worship music, and typing this post. ;) Chick-fil-A is the best!

I start my training for the job on the 31st, and boy am I nervous! I'm sure It'll be fine, though. For now, though, I will be working from CFA or home, on graphic design stuff for Cafe Barnabas. I am really quite enjoying it thus far, despite the fact that I can't just hop in the car and drive over to my parent's house. 

I am looking forward to seeing what God does in my life, here in Kentucky - 600 miles from home.
