Christmas was great. I loved the service at Grace yesterday. I asked my family to come to my church for a change, and they did! It was great to have my family with me at church again. I traded in a game for Mad Gab and we all played it as a family the other time! :) It's fun to not pay attention to what the phrase is, just hear how ridiculous people sound when it's not your team's turn. hahaha
Today, my daddy and I gave blood. I always enjoy doing it! the man that stuck me today though was not as good as they usually are...he totally missed my vein, and instead of REDOING it, he just moved and twisted the needle and it did not feel too I'm really sore...BOO! Oh well, I'm a big girl. I am tough.

Today was my mom's birthday. We went to Logan's for lunch and then saw THE BLIND SIDE. omg, such a gooooood movie! It's definitely the best movie I have seen in a while. This evening, we tried out a brownie recipe that she found in a magazine (of course I wouldn't eat any because I HATE chocolate, haha, but apparently it was gross.) So, we then proceeded to watch the movie Holiday in Handcuffs that was on ABC Family on our Tivo. It was cute.
Yesterday, we went to Opryland Hotel and took some pretty pics. They're all on my facebook. They turned out really nice, and we actually had a fun time taking them! EVERYBODY was in a good mood which was a Christmas miracle!!!!

A baby changes everything...

omg, you missed an AWESOME service at Grace today! wish you could've seen how wonderful the stage was set up and the music was jammin, and the message was great....A baby changes everything. My fav singer from the choir sang that song by Faith Hill...
before service, I watched the babies in Grace Acres (I've decided to do it every week now because I just adore them and want to serve more!) anyways, today I rocked little Grayson to sleep. When I'm not volunteering with the babies in there, I am so thankful to be blessed with having a JOB that allows me to do that on a regular basis. Babysitting brings so much joy to my life.
After church we watched the girls basketball game against Pittsburgh. (they are ranked pretty well) and it was a great game. We went into OVERTIME, but lost by one point in the end.

Friday night we had a sleepover. Myrt and Robbie have been bugging me to have a sleepover, so I decided to do it as part of their Christmas present this year. I also gave their parents a gift card to go out to eat and said that the night was free babysitting. :) We had a blast! this video cracks me up. watch Myrtle, she's funny.

Well, the semester is over. It flew by! I am overjoyed that I am finally done with Chemistry. I literally screamed as I walked outside after my exam! It felt sooooooo good! :)

I am so thankful for God putting Grace Comm. Church in my life. The college ministry is really kicking off and it's so exciting! I'm having a blast getting connected with lots of amazing people. I signed up for Passion 2010. It's a conference for 18-25 year olds. Everyone keeps telling me how awesome it is and I am looking forward to it. That's on Jan 2-5.

Tonight, we are having a Christmas memory. Myself and 4 of my close friends are going to take some pretty pics together, and go to a concert in Nashville. :) It should be lots of fun! I love those girls and will definitely miss them over the break!

Well, this was definitely an unexpected Thanksgiving!
Tues, my mom got a phone call that we needed to come down to Florida ASAP because my grandpa was not doing well and was in the hospital. He had a stroke, stopped breathing, had to have CODE RED called on him, and all kinds of we packed our bags and drove down there about noon on Tuesday. We got down there and they installed a pacemaker. He did better after that, and they finally released him on Thanksgiving. So, we were very grateful that he got to spend Thanksgiving with us at their house. GOD IS GOOD!

It definitely hit me that I'm seriously almost done with this semester and I cannot be more excited!
but it's gonna be a tough few weeks that's for sure.
I have my last regular chemistry test on the 7th, and we present our huge research project presentation on the 9th.
Then, finals start, and I have my last exam, Chemistry on Dec 16th.
you better believe that the WHOLE CAMPUS will here me scream as I walk out of the science building at 12:31 pm.

omg the Diamond Dash was soooooooooo much fun!
I ran the whole time- 2 and a half hours (not non-stop, but pretty close)
We didn't win, but I had SUCH A BLAST doing it!
it was like the Amazing Race which I am DYING to be on that show sooooo bad!
I really hope they do it again next year!

so Friday the 13th was the PERFECT day for my Chemistry Test.
I am just glad it's over and I don't have to worry about it anymore!

I had my friends over tonight for movie night. :) Fun as always!

One of them gave me a website with cheesy pick up lines, and this was one of my favorite...

Your daddy must have been a baker, because you've got a nice set of buns.

OMG! Halloween was AWESOME!

First, I went out to Ocharley's for lunch to celebrate my little brother's birthday. (YES, he was born on Halloween...and he's 18 now! AHH!)

Next, I went to the homecoming game with my girls. Had fun, then we ate at Pancho Villa....YUUUUUM!

After that, we all went to my house for a sleepover. We played The Office trivia game and had an Office Marathon. So much laughter and fun times!!

I am loving all these amazing colorful leaves that God has blessed our Earth with!!!
My favorite is the shade between orange and yellow.
I'm so thankful that we are on the downhill slope for this semester.
I'm so ready for Chemistry to be OVERWITH!
I spent FOUR HOURS on an assignment for that class.
I have a B on my midterm grade though, so that's GOOD!!! :)
But I will be SO SO HAPPY when I don't have to think about chemistry anymore. ahhhh.
I am proud of myself because I have been keeping myself busy, hanging out with my awesome friends and family! I went a good few solid days without crying.
I was watching the tv show Greek tonight and Kappy finally told Casey
that he was stupid for not taking the chance to get back together with her
and they kissed and it's all happy for them now,
so of course that made me a little upset, because I wish that would happen to me!
But, I know that it's just TV and God knows what He's doing.
It's still hard though.

I am sooooo excited about the condo! Grace and Ashley are moving in tomorrow! YAY!
Today was jam-packed. I got up early to help move in Freshmen, then worked the Peay!Nuts table for a while, worked out, ate lunch, then babysat Myrtle, now I'm heading to another babysitting job. I can't complain though...I love being busy! It's much better than being bored.
I really enjoyed being back on campus with everybody was nice seeing everybody that I haven't seen in tooooooooo long.
The other day Kacey came over to see my place and talked and then Hannah and Katie came over later...Omg, we just started gabbing away and 3 HOURS PASSED LIKE THAT!! It was sooo good catching up with them.
