Sad mixed with fun and Love!

I am afraid my dear bloggy friends that I must start this post off with some sad news. I hate leaving on a sour note so I want to start this way.
Yesterday at 2pm I found out a friend of mine passed away. Ben was 24 and I ment him and his family when I was living in Texas. He went to the same church as me and we were in the collage and career class for sunday school together. Was an awsome guy and really loved the Lord. Yesterday morning he was cleaning one of his guns and somehow it was still loaded (not sure all the details) the gun went off and shot him right in the heart. He died on the spot. My heart sank when I heard the news:( Please keep his family in your prayers.
Second sad thing....Steelers lost the Super Bowl. BUT......We did well, and we did make it to the SuperBowl unlike some other teams! So I guess I can smile!
Well...Its Monday so I really must get on to some happy things! Lets start with

I got my third hole on Saturday!
I really, really, really like it! I thought it would be allot of pain getting it done, but it really was not all that bad! I was impressed!

Well..on to the next thing!
I am in on this amazing Swap and Challange:

And today is day Number ONE!
When I need some me time I {LOVE} to...

hmmm...well..there would be several answers to that question :
1. Go for a LONG walk
I love walking and just enjoying nature, its so relaxing
2. Taking Photos
It just seems to calm me down, helps me look on other things
3. Watch a movie
So relaxing
4. Blogging, for real, it helps!

And one other fun thing:

Mingle 240

Yep..I did not get linked up last week and was actually kinda bummed..I missed you guys!
So welcome to any new people! Sorry this post was kind of a downer!
