Hooray for the Weekend!

{we heart it}

Its almost Friday, and I could not be happier that this week is ending. I have been over the edge stressed out this week with three exams and a final, and not to mention being sick. The final didn't go so well, but I pulled a B off which is good (though I studied soooo hard and wanted an A really bad) and last night I pulled an all nighter. And now I remember why I NEVER pull all nighters. My problem now is that I took a short nap around 5:30 but it recharged me enough to where, oddly, I am feeling fine instead of the sleep deprived zombie that I should be.

I have a full day tomorrow, starting off with work at 9 (it will be the last time to see my wonderful freshmen), then a quick trip to Walgreen's to pick up a prescription, then back to campus for lunch with Andrew and class at 12:40 (not my regular class, but I have another work conflict) and work from 3-5 again. Finally, Blake and I are driving home for Megan's prom! To see her gorgeous dress, click here. She is extremely excited about everything: senior year, prom, graduation, and starting college in the fall.

Happy Friday!

Better Together

There's no combination of words I could put on the back of a postcard
No song that I could sing but I can try for your heart
Our dreams and they are made out of real things
Like a shoebox of photographs with sepia-toned lovin'

Love is the answer at least for most of the questions in my heart
"Why are we here?" and, "Where do we go?"
And, "How come we're so hard?"
It's not always easy and sometimes life can be deceiving
I'll tell you one thing it's always better when we're together

Mmm, it's always better when we're together
Yeah, we'll look at them stars when we're together
Well, it's always better when we're together
Yeah, it's always better when we're together

And all of these moments
Just might find their way into my dreams tonight
But I know that they'll be gone when the morning light sings
Or brings new things for tomorrow night you see
That they'll be gone too, too many things I have to do

But if all of these dreams
Might find their way into my day-to-day scene
I'd be under the impression I was somewhere in between
With only two, just me and you, not so many things we got to do
Or places we got to be, we'll sit beneath the mango tree now

Yeah, it's always better when we're together
Mmm, we're somewhere in between together
Well, it's always better when we're together
Yeah, it's always better when we're together

I believe in memories they look so, so pretty when I sleep
And when I wake up, you look so pretty sleeping next to me
But there is not enough time, and there is no, no song I could sing
And there is no combination of words I could say
But I will still tell you one thing, we're better together

Monday Check Up

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! I know I did with Megan and Amanda being here and Sammie's 21st birthday. The only problem is that I got sick last Wednesday and my body has turned into a sneezing, coughing, mucus producing blob. All I want to do right now is lay in my bed and sleep all day long with a box of Kleenex and my mommy right here with me to take care of me and make everything better. And I wish the c-store on campus would carry 7-UP instead of just Sprite. I promise that I'm not contagious! I just sound like I might be dying :)

This weekend is Megan's senior prom and I will be going home! Yay!

Disney


Last night Andrew's friend Jake started playing Disney songs in his SUV while we were going out to eat/hanging out/driving around and whatnot. And I realized that it made me feel SO MUCH BETTER and less stressed out. So, I have acquired several Disney soundtracks since then for my iTunes. Not to mention I can name every single Disney character in the picture above. But my all time favorite Disney movie is Beauty and The Beast :) loooooooooooooove it! Jake and I both agreed that it makes us feel very nostalgic and I feel warm and fuzzy.

And tomorrow is Friday!

Embracing the Girly Side

I have never EVER been one of those super chic, stylish girls who always looks good every time she goes out. Its not that I don't care because I really do, I just don't have that special girly side. Ya know, the side that can always see what goes good with what and can always find things to mix and match perfectly. That is my sister. Me on the other hand, I try so hard and it never seems to work out. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I never change out of my Nike shorts, t-shirts and sneakers. Oh yeah, being in college might have something to do with it too. So I have decided that I am going to work on becoming a cuter, more stylish girl. Which means that I must refrain from buying too many t-shirts and more skirts/slim fitting shirts/tank tops/boots/sunglasses and even nail polish. And whatever else you can think of. So to jump right in, I took a look at all the super cute dresses at Anthropologie and these were my favorites!

Things & Joys Dress. I absolutely love the color and I can totally see myself wearing it. But here's my problem, what shoes and jewelry would/should I wear?

The Leading Role Dress. Coral is such an amazing color on me with my dark hair and olive skin, but once again..SHOES?

The Daily Gathering Dress. Every girl needs a little black dress, and the gatherings near the waistline are cute! Maybe some gold earrings?

If there is a fashion fairy out there, PLEASE HELP ME! I am in desperate need of some style tips :)

Unbelievable

I simply cannot believe that as of today I have one more month until I turn 21! Not to mention that the semester will have just ended the day before (May 12th). I can see the end in sight! Well, not really. This week is seeming to be one of the worst weeks ever. I don't think I have been this tired in quite some time, and I don't think I have continually studied all day and night (except for when I'm) in class. And its only Tuesday. Sheesh!

3 more days until Megan is here :D

Busy Busy Busy!

Happy Monday to you all! My week has started out rapidly, I've already had one exam today, I have one tomorrow, and one on Wednesday. Not to mention the meetings, homework, basketball games, and work related things. And the week has barely even started! And I spent the whole entire weekend studying. Gross. But the great thing I have to look forward to is that MEGAN IS COMING TO VISIT! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! I know it seems like I just saw her, but I love her to death and she is the best sister in the whole entire world! Not to mention Sammie's 21st birthday is the 24th of this month, I have one month left of school for the semester, and one month until my 21st birthday! Eeeeek! So many exciting things going on, I can't hardly keep up with all of it! Or keep my brain focused on school :)

She's Like Texas

{we heart it}

She's as free as bluebonnets in the summer
She's as hot as the Padre Island sun
Most of the time, she's as warm and friendly
Like the hills that surround Austin

She's as bright as the Dallas sky
She always holds her head up high
She loves the company of her family
She has faith in God's greater plan
She trusts I'm a good man
And that's why I'll always believe
She's like Texas
And she likes me

Her eyes are green like the trees in Nacadoches
Her teeth are white as cotton in the fall
And when she laughs, you'll always take notice
'Cause her heart's charm will shine right through it all

She's as bright as the Dallas sky
She always holds her head up high
She loves the company of her family
She has faith in God's greater plan
She trusts I'm a good man
And that's why I'll always believe
She's like Texas
And she likes me

Her moods can change like the weather out in Lubbock
But if you show her love, man she'll return it

She's as bright as the Dallas sky
She always holds her head up high
She loves the company of her family
She has faith in God's greater plan
She trusts I'm a good man
And that's why I'll always believe
She's like Texas
And she likes me

Oh, she's like Texas
And she likes me

One Year

Last Sunday was Andrew and mine's one year anniversary, but since it was Easter we weren't able to spend the day together or go out to dinner or do much of anything. Tonight Andrew took me to Haiku Japanese Steakhouse and it was deeeeeeeeelicious. We had the dinner special for two, which came with chicken, shrimp, and steak. Plus rice, noodles, and a salad and soup. Definitely the best anniversary ever :)

What A Relief

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I was having a hard time letting my life take its own course (see more here) and it seemed like everything was bothering me. Fortunately, things are turning out much better than I could have ever planned. Thanks God you are AMAZING!! So many times I forget to put my faith in Him and know that He will take care of everything for me. I will be able to graduate on time without taking a killer hard course load senior year and even have a good GPA :D the only downside is that I will be taking 15 hours this summer. But, I will be here with my wonderful future roomie, Christina, and Andrew won't be five hours away! I am starting to mentally prepare myself for the summer, last summer was just as bad if not worse than this summer is looking to be. So if you're going to be in the B/CS area over the summer, hit me up.

Tomorrow is Friday! Can't wait!

PLAYOFFS!

Every semester at school the Rec offeres Intramural teams, and since a huge part of my entire life revolves around basketball, I always sign up to play :) this year I am on two AWESOME teams that are both in the playoffs now! One team is a Co-Rec team (meaning that its co-ed) that Andrew and I play on and the other is a team of Amazonian women. Seriously, all of the girls are 5'8" or taller except for one. And both teams are undefeated! Wooooooohooooooooo! Oh....right, can't forget the team names, Brave Toasters (Little wouldn't fit on the registration form) and BTHO Errrybody. I have no clue who came up with those names, but who really cares as long as you're good. So the first playoff game is tonight with the Brave Toasters at 7:45. Which means that I have to make it all the way across campus in 15 minutes because I have work from 6-7:30 boo. And the first game for BTHO Errybody is next Tuesday, the 12th at 6:45pm. So be thinking about my teams and pray that we do good! So far we have been doing pretty good :D and I think if we win there are free t-shirts involved. Yay more t-shirts!

happy Easter weekend and lots of LOVE!

I hope everybody had a wonderful Easter weekend! Things were rather quite at home, and I feel like I studied the ENTIRE weekend. But I did add in some extra time to hang out with my sister, and my best guy friend from high school who is going to be shipped off to Iraq in August or September was in town! :D Today was a little overwhelming with trying to celebrate 2 Easters and get my stuff together to drive back to CS. But I did fit in time to decorate some eggs! I even brought them back with me to give to my friends. And I can't forget the candy that my mom got. She is always so good to give us our old baskets and treats.

Additionally, today marks the one year anniversary of Andrew and me. He has been such a blessing in my life and I honestly don't know where I would be without him. We didn't do anything special since it is Sunday and we both have lots of work to do this week, so maybe this weekend we will have time to celebrate, or at least go out to dinner. Andrew is one of those kind of clueless guys, so I have to tell him exactly what I want, when I want it, where I want it and how I want it. Maybe he will figure out a good surprise for me one day. And of course, I have to show memories of the past year with him :) I love him so much!

Andrew and I at my sorority formal last spring


Us on the field after an AWESOME football game


I think this was the first time Andrew ever met my dad, and both of them had a blast. We went out to a friend's place and fired lots of rounds


Andrew came to visit again for Christmas. Sadly, this is the most recent picture I have of the two of us. Maybe I just need to carry my camera everywhere.


I couldn't resist leaving this picture out even though it is completely humiliating and hideous, it pretty much sums our relationship up. Kinda.


Let me know how your weekend was!
