waiting on...Wednesday {link-up #15}

While I'm Waiting...Waiting on...Wednesday link up
Welcome back to the Waiting on...Wednesday link-up - a place where you can link up what you are waiting on, going through, making, anything - as long as it's family-friendly!  :)  After you link up, please make sure to read a few others.  Please don't just link and run.  It's always fun to find new bloggers to follow!

You guys are awesome!  Another fabulous week of link-ups!  We had many returnees (thank you!) and lots of new faces.  Welcome!!!  I'm so glad you're here!  Every week it's hard to narrow down the awesome posts to just a few FEATURES, but here are a few that captured my interest last week!  Thank you to everyone that linked up - I can't wait to see who joins us this week!
Waiting on...Wednesday week 14 FEATURES
All featured posts are pinned to the link-up party FEATURES board!  Follow along and you'll get a sneak peak of who the features are each week! :)
Follow Holly @ While I'm Waiting...'s board While I'm Waiting - Waiting on...Wednesday link-up party FEATURES! on Pinterest.

If you were featured, don't forget to grab the FEATURE button and show off your awesome post!

Just a few things to remember about the link-up:
*All topics are welcome - as long as they are created or written by you and are family friendly!  Old posts - new posts... it's up to you!  Please link to your specific post URL and not to your blog home page.
*You can link up to three posts/blog.
*Please place a link back to this link-up in either your post or on your party page so that others can link up too.
*It's a party, try to visit at least 2 other posts and show them some love!  This is the fun part!  Be inspired, inspire someone else - don't just link and run!  Leave comments, share and pin their posts - you know, show some love!
*Each week I'll choose a few posts to feature at the next link party.  I'll also pin the featured posts to the While I'm Waiting - Waiting on...Wednesday link-up party FEATURES Pinterest board.
*If you would like to follow me, that would be awesome but it's not required.

What am I waiting on?  I'm waiting on this girl to come to town!!!
Meet Melissa, my dear, sweet, beautiful, amazing and crazy friend who broke my heart when she and her precious family moved three years ago.  We met across a crowded room (ok, ok, we were at a scout meeting that neither one of us wanted to be at), she locked eyes with me and basically said, "you wanna hang out some time?"  I'm not sure if that's exactly how it went but it's not far off!  I love Melissa for so many reasons - first and foremost, that she reached out to me - cause that's just not my gift.  She loves Jesus and she challenges me to be a better me.  I know it's hard to believe but we only hung out maybe three times before she moved but I thought my world had been turned upside down when she left.  I couldn't believe that God put her in my life but then so quickly moved her away.  But, distance is just two points on a map.  I know that no matter what, this girl will always have my back.

So, what's up with the mustache (I know you're dying to know!)?  Back in the day before Melissa vetoed summer bucket lists, she actually made them!  She told me that one of their bucket lists items was for her family to wear mustaches out to dinner. I looked at her with wide eyes because, I mean, I would NEVER have thought to do that (much less have the guts to do it!).  This was our last dinner before she moved so guess what I showed up wearing to dinner?!  Yep - a mustache!
Had to make sure she got that crossed off her summer bucket list!

So, what grand plans do we have?!  Absolutely nothing - just the way we like it!  I'm sure we'll order take out, wear our pj's, open a bottle of wine, and sit back and watch the Bachelorette - just like old times and I CAN'T WAIT!!!
     
I'm so glad you stopped by!

Thanks for linking up!  Have a blessed day!  Gig 'em and God bless!
Holly
