New Beginnings

I have officially moved into my new apartment! My parents and Megan did a fantastic job getting all my stuff moved in, and I feel like I have been unpacking all weekend. Almost everything has found its own place, except for the things in my bathroom. Sadly there is a leak under my bathroom sink that needs to be fixed ASAP, so the majority of my bathroom stuff doesn't have a place. It feels interesting to be here on my own and have to do everything on my own. Right after my parents and Megan left I was kinda lonely for a while and tried to keep myself as busy as possible. And now Chris, Blake and I are watching LOST :)

Its been a good weekend!

Grades and Moving

Hi all! Happy Hump Day! Hope everyone is having a good week :) things have been good here in Longview, I forgot how much I miss home. Yesterday Dad and I spent most of the day at my grandparents house in Tyler, and I also found my bridesmaid dress for Mary's wedding! I realized that there is NOT a David's Bridal in College Station or Longview and that I need a dress soon! The wedding is in September, but the dress I ordered won't be in until July 28th. Sheesh. Anyways, here's the dress.
Classic style for all seasons. This charming, tea-length dress will always be in vogue. Made of flat taffeta, featuring ruched empire waist and tie back. V-neckline dips down in front and back.

Unfortunately, they did not have the correct size or color that I needed. So hopefully when the dress gets here it will fit like a glove! I have noticed that I love shorter skirts, none of those maxi dresses or anything (I WILL PROBABLY NEVER EVER FIND ONE LONG ENOUGH) but instead something short with an empire waist, those look best on me :) and the best part is that it's on SALE! Now to find the perfect shoes. Do you like the dress?

Back to what I was originally planning to talk about.....I like to ramble sometimes....Saw the grandparents, spent quality time with Dad, and spent the day unpacking and repacking and making sure that I'm not forgetting anything, even though I'll be back in a few days for Megan's graduation! I can't believe that in 48ish hours I will be in my own apartment! Eeeek! Its a big step and I can't wait! I feel like I have everything covered but I know that once I get there things may be lacking.

I have the munchies again...time to go rummage through the fridge. I promise I will be posting birthday pics ASAP!

Busy Bee

Even though it is summer and I have about 2 weeks until summer school starts, it seems like I haven't stopped going yet! There is always something for me to check on, chores to be done, errands to run, places to go and people to see! Not to mention all the packing I have left to do to move into my new apartment! Sometimes I feel like I'm a chicken running around with my head chopped off. And I haven't talked to hardly any of my friends since coming back home. Wuups...Anyways, time to jump off and run again. I'm bringing lunch to Megan and Amanda at school then meeting Dad at home to go to Tyler to see my grandparents, and in the car I have thank-you notes to write. WHEW. So much!

Birthday Update

I am so unbelieveably happy that finals are over and that I am back home! It feels amazing! I had a fantastic birthday and I am still celebrating this whole week! Currently I have NO pictures from my birthday, they are on Megan's camera and Sammie has a bunch too. So I would just rather wait and tell you about the whole week rather than spoil it now without pictures! But it was very awesome and I could not believe my eyes at what happened! And of course, Sammie had graduation yesterday at 9am. Its a reality check, she's already done and gone at A&M and I only have one year left. Whoa.

Anyways, I am off to bed. Church bright and early in the morning. And Megan and Sammie, if you are reading this and you haven't posted pictures yet, DO IT NOWWWW.

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

Final Push

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Well, almost. I have one more final at 8am tomorrow before FREEDOM! Once again, I have no motivation to study, and it doesn't even feel like my birthday is the day after tomorrow. But I have spent some time doing some birthday shopping on Alloy's website :) love them!

Back to having my nose in my notes and practice exams. TOMORROW IS MY LAST DAY OF CLASS AND THEN MY 21ST BIRTHDAY!

Want VS. Need

I know that I need to study for my Anatomy and Environmental Health exams tomorrow, but I just can't seem to keep myself focused long enough to absorb any information. It is so frustrating to know that I am so close to the end of the semester and my 21st birthday and yet without getting through my last three finals I am hopeless and have no motivation WHATSOEVER. Give me the strength to make it through these last 2 days, and then I will be free until June 1st!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms, grandmas, aunts, and moms-to-be! Ya'll do such a fantastic job! I am really bummed that I can't be at home to celebrate with my mom, but she knows that I love her and I'm with her in spirit. She is better than the best mom I could ever ask for, raising my sister Megan and me by herself most of the way. She is really SUPERMOM in disguise. Through all the Barbie fashion shows, mudpies and the time I got bubble gum stuck in my hair to senior year and now college, she has been my support system. I can't thank her enough. I hope that one day I can be as great of a mom as she has been to me.

Megan, Mom, and me at Christmas. The lighting and stuff was weird, and I'm pretty sure I have at least 20 different pictures of us in front of the tree. And they all look exactly the same.

Here's a peek at what Megan and I got her for Mother's Day from The Vintage Pearl

Mother of Pearl Necklace
Of course, with our names engraved on it :)

Birthdays all Around

So apparently this time of year is one of those times where every single person you know has a birthday. The last few days haven't been so crazy, but today alone I have about 10 friends with birthdays. WHOA. And the next few days are similar. I can't believe that MY 21ST BIRTHDAY is in FIVE DAYS. Holy cow. How did I make it this far already? Things are happening so fast, and everybody is growing up. My sister will be graduating from high school in about 2 weeks. Crazy I know. And then I think about my graduation date, which is only a year and 5 days from now (so if you did the math correctly, I will be graduating on my 22nd birthday). Anyways, back to my original topic. I want to wish all of my wonderful friends HAPPY BIRTHDAY! It's gonna be an awesome year!

Coming to an End

I cannot believe that another semester has already flown by, and that finals are starting this Friday. I am so ready for it to all be over, I think this has been my most stressful semester of my entire college career so far. Pretty soon I will be home for Megan's graduation, then back here for summer school. Time flys by faster and faster every single day here in Aggieland. Guess I had better start enjoying as much of it as possible rather than letting myself get so stressed out about EVERY LITTLE THING. Maybe soon I'll start to chill out :)

Good luck to everyone taking finals!

Prom 2010

Megan had prom this weekend, she looked smokin! I'm so glad I could be there :) she is the best sister I could ask for!
