Hooray for the Fam!

Oh, boy, how I love Christmas.  This Christmas can't be summed up in words.  It was just fabulous.  Hooray for the Family! They made it amazing.  We were together and shared our usual traditions of Mexican food, SINGING (Yes, we can sing.  We are basically amazing. Ha ha.), opening gifts on Christmas Eve.... And of course Santa paid us a visit in Binger, Oklahoma! ;)

Yes, Ry looks sooooo thrilled to be in the pictures.  I love my cousin :)

The Brothers... Daddy Bart & Uncle Wes. Two funniest people you will ever meet.

Lovely sisters.  Yes, I love my little minnie me.

And to finish it up..... Me smelling my new boots.  No, I don't have a foot fetish, so don't ask... I just really like the smell of new boots!  There is NOTHING wrong with that.

AND..... to top off the best week of the year.... I met my roommate for school at WTC next year.  I love her already.  Yep, I'm living the good life right now.... Bring on 2011! :)

What a Wonderful Life...

This past weekend cannot be described in words.  FINALLY Hayes made his way back to DFW!  I saw him for the first time in over a month... How lovely :) We spent the weekend shopping, watching fellow happy holiday-ers fall clumsily together while ice-skating around a fabulous Christmas tree, and doing what we do best.... eating!  What a wonderful weekend together! :)

We had a Merry EARLY Christmas together :)

He thinks his new haircut is cool.... Well, ok, so do I :)

AND on top of being soooo flipping cool, he knows how to read minds when picking out Christmas presents.... Total package. Hehe :)

How he knew I wanted these EXACT Uggs, I will never know.

PLUS.... my Pandora bracelet & necklace.  Lucky girl?  Mmmmhhhhmmmm. :)

A wonderful boyfriend...

What more could I ask for?

A Pomeranian puppy in a few years?

But he already knows that.

The Best Day with You...

Dear 6th & 7th period Dual Credit class,

I love you all so very much.  Something sneaky is always taking place.  From texting each other across the room about the Jolly Green Giant's hooker, to blurting out "Dick's" for every answer in Taboo, we know how to keep it interesting.  I can't even describe in words how much you mean to me, and how wonderful this first semester has been... I will miss this class oh so very much, but I CANNOT wait to walk across the stage and graduate with you all.  We've come a long way over the years, and our time together is almost through... So grab each other's hands while we still can, and jump into the LAST sememster of our SENIOR year.

I love you all.

Better late than never...

Although the event I'm about to share with you took place TWO months ago, it is very important that I share.... better late than never.... right?  In October, I was lucky enough to travel from an itty bitty town in the Lonestar state, to the loud and chaotic city of Indianapolis, Indiana.  With 54 other Texas FFA members, I had the chance to reach out to other FFA members across the nation and spread my love of agriculture and the FFA.  I had finally reached the National FFA Convention, along with 50,000 other members of this wonderful organization.  Over the week we would put our leadership skills to the test through numerous workshops, delegation meetings, convention sessions. It truly was the week of a lifetime.  I spent long hours with 54 of my closest friends who all share a common passion: Serving others.  Together we met kids from all across the country, "from the state of Alaska to Puerto Rico, and from the state of Maine to Hawaii," who had one common love.  Together, we reached our "Infinite Potential."

Learning to Do,
Doing to Learn,
Earning to Live,
Living to Serve.

Dedicated To...

The past few weeks, I have HORRIBLY negleted my blog... Yes, I know, I have done the unthinkable.  However, to my defense, the past few weeks have been incredibley hectic.  I have experienced an absolutely WONDERFUL 18th birthday, a glorious Thanksgiving with my family, the happieness in victory, the disappointment in defeat, and the wonders of emotion.  The next few days will be dedicated to the recap of the emotional rollercoaster I have experienced..... but I am making you wait one more day.  My PRECAL binder is still lying on my bed (unopened, I might add!) and the trig functions are calling my name.  Upsetting? Yes, I know.  I will leave you with one last thought tonight: Put on your armor & dedicate your life to HIM.

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

~Ephesians 6:10-17
