Bo and I are truly blessed to have the parents we have! This past week and weekend we have mentioned this to each other numerous times. Bo's parents and my parents are some of the BEST people we know. They have done way too much for us and have gone out of their way more times than we can count to help us and make our lives easier. I know I just said this but we are so blessed. Through our engagement, our wedding, moving into our apartment and just starting our lives together, our parents have been there for advice and helped us with whatever we've needed. Whenever we go home to visit we always come back with a carload of things they give us! Blessed is only the beginning! I could go on forever about how amazing our parents are! We could never thank them enough for all they do for us! They are one of the BIGGEST blessings in our lives!
Our parents are so awesome they helped us with a yard sale last weekend. Not gonna lie, this was a blessing in itself! Kinda random, but we made some good money for our savings! Our parents and families donated TONS of stuff for us to sale! The thought of a yard sale started a couple months ago. Bo and I really wanna go back to Brazil of course so our original idea was to have the yard sale to make money for Brazil! Well the whole Brazil thing is on hold for a few cause of school and work. But last time we went home we got started! We cleaned our our sheds and our parents worked around their houses to find things for us. The yard sale was a total success! We had soooo much stuff to sell! On Friday night we set everything up in my parents garage so it was all ready. We planned on starting the sale at 8 on Saturday but people showed up before 7 and it was NONSTOP til about 1 in the afternoon! We actually had fun! We sold pretty much everything! Thanks for all the help parents!

Before the sale. Kinda a bad pic, it was still dark outside.
After the sale! We started with like 6 tables full of stuff and ended with 2!
Bo got this over the weekend! It was his grandpa's. It's a 38 Special! He is so excited about it! It was kinda crazy that this was given to him cause a couple weeks ago he was looking up guns on the internet pricing them and looking into getting a concealed weapons permit! It's always nice to have things passed down to you right?!
On another note....
I swear the blessings just keep pouring in. Along with the money we got from the yard sale, Bo and I have been working on getting a pell grant for a while now. Well, good news!! We got one! With Bo's scholarship and this pell grant, we don't have to pay for any of Bo's schooling! This is pretty much GREAT news! It will also help out with bills and such! If you've ever thought about getting a pell grant and thought it was too much work, I promise you, just fill out the application and don't give up because it's worth it! I know that this blessing has come with us paying our tithing. We have been blessed financially because of our faith in the Lord. I am so thankful for the knowledge we have. The Lord has blessed us in too many ways to count!
WE ARE SO BLESSED!!!
