instaweek


for frequent highlights, follow me @robina_black


highlights from my week:
- two words: bubble tea. if you've never had it, you need to try it! pronto!

- remember Chris P Bacon the roller pig from my post about bionic pets? well there is a book based on his life so far & we now own it! this is such an amazing little pig & i can't wait to share this story with my kids one day! it even has real life pictures of Chris P in it, too!

- one of my coworkers brought in pure Belgium chocolate last week! i got a cone of hazelnut chocolate & it was delicious!

- friday night, we were getting out of the car to go grocery shopping, and there was a nail in the side of our tire! so we drove to my in laws house to change out our tire in their basement since it was pouring down rain! they were keeping my sister in laws dog so i got to play with him!

-the first sunday gathering of our church plant core group was yesterday, but we weren't able to go. Thomas's cousin accepted Christ the week before & got baptized yesterday, so we went to their church to celebrate with him. we hate that we missed the first service, BUT Thomas has been praying for his cousin for years so we are so happy we were able to support him!

-we went over to Thomas's grandparents for Easter lunch! we were out of town last year for my uncle's funeral and Thomas's cousin actually lives in Germany so he only gets to visit for Easter every other year, so it was fun having the whole family there this year!
