Moved to Monday

Today in class my professor decided to take a poll to see who would actually study tomorrow night for our exam on Friday. Obviously nobody will be studying because everybody will be watching the Aggies BTHO OSU. Weeeeeeeeeeeell....maybe not everybody. Which means that he moved our exam to Monday! Yes! A few extra days to study and read the last chapter on the exam. The only downside is that means 2 back to back exams on Monday morning, which means I will be a studyin' fool all weekend long minus going to see Devil on Friday night and Roxy & Josh's ring dunks Saturday night which I'm super duper excited about cause I'll get to spend some time with some fab Access people as well as my peeps from my old job that I haven't seen in FOREVER. Plus I have an exam tomorrow, booooooo.

If you have an exam tomorrow, good luck!

Feels Like Fall

I am loving this cooler weather! The first day of fall was last Wednesday, and it definitely is starting to feel like it. I didn't even know that Texas had a fall...it jumps straight from summer heat to winter cold. (Okay, I kid, but this fall weather is nice!) I couldn't decide on what to wear so I settled on jeans, a tee, and a fleece jacket. I was thankful for my jacket for about a minute then I started to get warm. Ooops. And now I'm at home in shorts but I was cold earlier. Go figure. This weather has me thinking about leggings, cozy sweaters, warm boots, fall colors, and using my candle warmer. Oh, and I'm thinking about the holidays too :)

Soaked in the Shower

I walked out to the bus stop this morning and waited...and waited....and waited. And a bus eventually showed up about 10 minutes late. I wanted to get to campus early that way I would have a chance to prep for work this morning. Well those 10 minutes made all the difference in me getting to campus. As the bus got close to dropping everybody off, the clouds opened up and soaked everybody on campus. I was drenched even with my umbrella (plus my shoes might be nasty now). The majority of my students showed up late since they did not want to get out in the rain. About 2-3 minutes after I got to work the sunshine came out and it stopped raining. Unbelievable. Plus I washed my hair last night and it was all straight and pretty this morning. Not so much anymore. Eventually I got back home and its now the weekend and I have pulled everything out of my backpack hoping that it will dry and not ruin.

Did you get caught in the shower?

Party Party Party

Today is Andrew's 22nd birthday! Even though we both have class all day long I have a few tricks up my sleeve. Well not really. I'm baking him a cake for tonight and we will be watching the season premiere of The Big Bang Theory. His family will be coming up Saturday night to celebrate with us. Other than that there are no birthday plans. I know he wants to go to the shooting range and maybe go bowling. The weird part is that he has few friends here at school which makes it difficult to plan surprises and it drives me craaaaazy. But I'm getting used to it. Anyways, I won't divulge any more birthday surprises for fear of Andrew's wandering eyes reading this.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANDREW!

Happiness


"Happiness consists more in small conveniences of pleasures that occur every day, than in great pieces of good fortune that happen but seldom to a man in the course of his life." Benjamin Franklin

So many times I forget to stop and enjoy the little things in my life that make me happy. Today I am going to make myself think of five things that make me happy at this very minute.

1. having Andrew in my life
2. not having to stress about an exam this week
3. the candy corn that I bought yesterday (super delicious)
4. being able to call my mom whenever I need her
5. cotton candy ice cream (they have it on campus at bernie's and just thinking about it makes me happy)

What small pleasures are making you happy right now?

♥ Lovers Lane Wedding ♥

So this weekend was a blast (even though I missed my friends who got their rings) and I'm finally getting around to updating! Andrew and I left Friday afternoon and headed to Dallas for Mary's wedding and of course it was beyond extravagant! We barely made it for the wedding rehearsal and after that we had to rush to the hotel and get ready for the Rehearsal Dinner party. The theme for the party was "1950s Glamour" at the Park City Club. We had a pre-wedding brunch at the Celebration Restaurant before heading to the church to get ready for the wedding at 6pm. The wedding was at the Lovers Lane United Methodist Church and it was lovely. Unfortunately I didn't have a chance to take many pictures, as I was a bridesmaid and had my hands full. Thankfully there were 3 photographers and a videographer for all the events (they were with us every step of the way) and pictures should be arriving in about 12 weeks. I can't wait to have those pictures! And just so you know, I didn't have quite the best photographer and I apologize for the fuzzyness and lack of photos.

Megan and I posing during the rehearsal that took over an hour! Apparently we were supposed to dress up and I didn't get the memo.

Megan was first down the aisle and we had to make sure that we were lined up with the person on the other side and they constantly told us to SMILE!

I smiled at Andrew and waited forever and a day for him to take a picture as I was walking down the aisle but he never noticed until I looked away.

Mary and her parents walking down the aisle pretending to hold their candle votives

At the 50s glamour party with Megan. This might be my new favorite picture of us.

I would like to point out that I was wearing 2-ish inch heels and was feeling weird that I was just as tall as Andrew so I decided to lean over to try and look shorter. Instead I have the baby bump look. Oooooooooooops. And this dress will most likely be the dress that I wear for Ring Dance in the spring.

This is one of the best pictures I've seen of Andrew in quite some time and I love it when he smiles so much


Oh, and did I tell you that I caught Mary's bouquet after the wedding? Well I did :) and I know you know what that means

Now to count down 12 weeks for the really great pictures!


****UPDATE****
The fabulous maid of honor uploaded a few more pictures and I thought I would share them with you!

One more picture from the Glamour party on Friday night. From left to right: Sage, Megan, Andrew, me, and Zach. Sage and Zach are the MOH's kids and are pretty awesome :)

Mary finally in her wedding dress posing for the fancy photographers. Isn't she beautiful?

Shiny Gold Ring

I want to get my ring this Friday like all of my friends *saaaaaaaaadddd face*

Sorry for sounding mopey and whiny, but I have waited 7 years to get my Aggie Ring and I am totally jealous of all my friends who are getting their rings this week. I say I've been waiting seven years, which is completely true. I was fourteen years old when I attended my first Aggie football game and actually saw the campus and I fell in love. Ever since then I have waited. And now that day is less than 2 months away. But I want it now like everybody else, I didn't kill myself this summer with 10 hours for nothing. To make things worse, and I know I already mentioned this, but I won't be able to make it to any ring dunks this weekend since I'm going out of town for my ex-stepmom's wedding. So thanks for listening to me whine and complain. And I don't need any cheese :)

on a completely irrelevant note, Andrew's 22nd birthday is in 10 days and I need to figure out what to do for his birthday. ideas are greatly appreciated!

Check-In and Check-Up

Hey hey! Its been awhile since I've checked in, school has been keeping me super busy and its only the 3rd week of class. Sheesh. And even though I haven't updated super recently, nothing much has changed. The football game against La Tech was good and bad until the 2nd half and everything was good. On top of all things school and work related, I seem to be getting sick. Thanks allergies, I love you too..

Mary's (my ex-stepmom) wedding is SATURDAY. I can't believe that its already here. I wonder what color dress she will wear this time...its her 5th marriage and maybe this one will last. Anyways, this means that Andrew and I will be driving to Dallas on Friday after he finishes with class. And the weekend will involve getting gussied up and lots of expensive, delicious food. The only thing about her wedding being this weekend is that Ring Day is Friday, and I know about 12,327,086 people getting their rings and I'm sad that I will be missing several dunks.

Right now I should think about studying, I have my first exam of the semester on Wednesday. Boooooooo. Or I will think more about taking a nap :)

Touchdown

So this morning I did not want to get out of bed. Seriously. It was so warm and toasty and dark outside, and I was almost late to class because of it. I drove to class since it was at Blinn. Class ended, and I walked back to my car in the pouring rain. About 30 seconds after I got in my car the radio broadcast suddenly put out the national weather service warning and said that there had been a tornado warning issued. A few minutes into driving back to my apartment, I got a Code Maroon text saying that there was a tornado heading straight for campus. Well that's just great, I'm close to campus and I'm driving down the highway. Worst place to be. But I made it home in one piece and flipped on the tv and the radio to check for updates. I almost didn't go to my other classes. But I did and it was a decent day, but I really thought CS was gonna float away (part of me still thinks that since its still raining).

I feel really behind on all my classes and studying and whatnot. I put off my medical terminology fees since I didn't have the money for it and now I have to crunch before the quiz on Friday. It would be nice to know before I register for the class that I have to pay EXTRA for it so I can start saving my money and get a head start on studying....but nooooooo. Oh well. I'm sure my feelings of being overwhelmed and stressed will only get worse before they get better. Like I've mentioned before, I'm a worrywart and love to stress about everything and its genetic :)

Roses & Shoes

Lots of exciting things have happened since Friday night! Saturday Andrew and I celebrated 1 yr. and 5 months together and he bought me a dozen red roses the night before and they were absolutely beautiful :) there's a picture on facebook if you would like to see them (my sister took it on her iPhone so I don't have a picture) and pardon me for not having a vase to put them in yet. Saturday night the Aggies totally beat the hell outta SFA 48-7 and it was an awesome game! Did I mention that Andrew and I were on the 40 yd line directly behind the band? Great seats but sometimes it was impossible to hear or see. Afterwards, Megan, Andrew, Erik, and I went to Applebee's for some food and it was delicious. I was famished from standing that entire game. Today was pretty lazy, the usual church and lunch plus running lots of errands. We went to Ross, Big Lots, Academy, Spoons, and Walmart. Andrew was super nice and bought me some new sneakers cause my Nike Shox weren't gettin the job done at all. So I'm back to wearing my trusty New Balance sneaks. The strange thing is that I had to get a size 12 instead of 11 like I have in the past, which means my feet have grown a little more. Greeeeeaaaaaaatttt. But I think I'm gonna love them! And I can't thank Andrew enough for buying them for me :)

Megan will be leaving tomorrow but I will get to see her the weekend after next for Mary's wedding. I can't believe that its already here! And I'm pretty bummed that we don't have Labor Day off like everybody else does. Pretty dumb if you ask me. But oh well.

How was your weekend?

First & Midnight Yell

So tonight kicks off the annual first yell, featuring Bill Engvall, followed by the first midnight yell practice of the 2010 football season. Normally I would be excited about such a thing, but for some reason I'm not at all. College Station doesn't feel like my home anymore. It's weird, ya know? I mean I won't be graduating until next December so I have time to stick around here but I guess since I'm a senior its still different. Part of me doesn't even want to go, even though I paid $17 for my first yell ticket and Andrew says he will make me go to midnight yell whether I want to or not. Personally I would just rather sit at home and watch tv or a movie or something. And I had the brilliant idea for a date for Megan to midnight yell, and it was almost perfect (I saw the guy I wanted to be her date today) but since she's all hung up on the guy she met in Florida back in July that lives in Kentucky she doesn't have eyes for anybody else, even if the two of them never get any farther than talking on the phone. Apparently she hasn't heard of a summer romance and that it only lasts through summer. But I guess she'll learn one way or another, even if it leads to her heart getting broken again.

Miss Megan

So you'll never guess who decided to come visit me for the weekend. Yep, my sister :) she arrived while I was in class this afternoon and I couldn't wait to get out of class to see her! She has a 4-day weekend (I am totally jealous) and we don't have many plans except to chill and hang out. I have tickets for First Yell and the football game, but I didn't know she was coming until last night therefore I didn't have a chance to get her tickets. But regardless, we are both happy that she is here and it will be a fabulous weekend!

Megan (about age 3) and me (about age 5) were cute as buttons! Don't you agree?
