Weekly Re-Cap / Thoughts (Derek’s Wedding)

- I can’t even remember what I did last week other than the wedding trip this past weekend!

- I guess I’ll just stick with that! (maybe)

- Derek and Amy got hitched!

- We got to know Amy’s family really well! They are awesome people!

- Driving a Cadillac CTS all week was pretty cool. I don’t think I would ever actually buy one even if I was richer than rich though… Sorry Cadillac lovers.

- I had not been to Liberty University in two years! They did so many cool changes.

- Lynchburg actually has stuff to do off campus now! I thought that would never happen!

- I absolutely love SHEETZ! It’s a gas station/convenience store on steroids! I must have gone there at least twelve times. I seriously want to see one open in Albany!

- Derek and Amy’s wedding was great! Amy is like the most organized person ever!

- Dr. Ergun Caner, the president of the Liberty Theological Seminary did the wedding. He is a cool guy! He looks like a biker dude! I’m looking into taking online classes with that seminary so it was nice to meet him.

- They got married at the church that Jerry Falwell started. Their brand new facility is off the chain! It is like walking through a shopping mall. I took tons of pictures to get ideas.

Derek and Amy have some awesome friends that are all making a difference.

- I will post some pics from our trip later today or this week.

- I can’t wait to find out how the REVOLUTION went this weekend at Northway!
