Friday Randomness | The Best Yes Giveaway!

Hey guys!  I hope you've had a fabulous week!  It's been fairly cool here in Texas which has been pretty enjoyable.  I even had to wear a jacket one day - the Sunday before that I had been in the pool.

I've got some random stuff this Friday and an awesome giveaway below so stick around!

*Quick reminder: Next Wednesday is the Monthly Faves link-up!  Share your favorites from April and come back to link up with me and Mia!


Last weekend, we had a few crazy storms.  It was some of the loudest thunder I've EVER heard.  We woke up on Sunday morning and found two massive branches that had fallen.  They landed right next to my neighbors car.  They were larger than her car so thankfully they didn't land on it!


We attended a local BBQ restaurant's ribbon cutting and ate some darn good BBQ!  We spent the rest of the day roaming around the Canyon Lake area which is super pretty!  I wish we could buy a house out there!


For those of you who haven't seen my Instagram this week, I want to share the little critter we found in our house with you! 

As we laid there watching the Texas Rangers baseball game, we looked down and noticed a gigantic tarantula scurrying across our floor.  We both screamed and said things we've never said before.  Haha!  We finally got him under some Tupperware and put weights over it to keep him there.

I eventually let him free once I got brave enough to pick him up.  They're not poisonous but's a creepy, crawly spider!

Joey, I hope this doesn't scar you for life!


On Tuesday, we went to a minor league baseball game, the San Antonio Missions, and had a blast.  We sure miss being close to the Texas Rangers stadium!


Now for the giveaway!!!  I've joined some awesome bloggers in providing this giveaway that has 3 WINNERS!  Yep, that's right....3 lucky winners will win a copy of the book, The Best Yes by Lysa Terkeurst.  A special thanks goes out to Proverbs 31 Ministries for making this possible!

Linking up with KarliAprilErika and Amanda today!

  14. I had to scroll so fast past those spider pictures-- I'm impressed you decided to let him go/ pick him up, I can't even kill a normal sized spider so I literally cannot imagine finding something like that in my house! I guess it's good to know they aren't poisonous though :) How fun to go to a new BBQ restaurant and I'm so glad the trees missed your neighbors car!
