It's been a while..

I realize it has been about a month since my last post... guess there just hasn't been much excitement in my life until this last weekend. I went home for the first Tech game and had a great time with my college friends. Ironically most of the friends I hung out with this weekend live in DFW. I guess we have to travel 6 hours to see each other. We like to do things the hard way.

Anyway, my weekend consisted of a Casey Donahew street dance, pre-gaming at the Alumni Center, a CRAZY HOT first half of football, leaving during halftime to enjoy the AC and TVs in the Alumni Center, hitting up Broadway, Chimy's Margaritas and having a cookout for lunch with my family on Labor Day. I took approximately 1 picture of the weekend... What was I thinking?!

Little did I know all the excitement would happen the night after I left. I got on facebook this morning and everyone's status updates had to do with the Robert Pattinson spotting at Crickets in Lubbock last night (just so happened to be the only bar we didn't go to on Broadway this weekend). I was a little skeptical, but once I saw my friend Caron's picture I totally believed it.
Yep, those are my good friends Emilie and Caron, we worked together at Gardski's for a really long time. I talked to Caron and she said they had been at Crickets just watching the game (only about 20 people in the bar) and hanging out for an hour before they realized it was him. She said they got 1 of only 2 fan pictures he allowed. It turned into a crazy mess of girls, but since Caron and Emilie were already in the bar they got to stay. Now they are all over the internet. It's crazy!

You can see more pictures here, read about it here or just google it.

Enough of that, here are some things I've loved over the past week or so.

How fun would it be to go to this party?

Wish I would have known about these when I was little. I would have totally rocked them!

I wish I would have read this approximately one year ago - So inspiring to a newly graduated design student.

French Bull has really cute house wares. I mean REALLY cute.

Doesn't this soup look delicious?! I'm going to try it. I did try it tonight, yum!

I found Looking into the Past a while ago, but just stumbled upon it again recently. I love it.

These cupcakes look yummy! In fact, all of these pictures are yummy :)

This is just Awesome!

oh by the way, Tech won! Wreck 'Em Tech!

a few things

So I just have a few random things.

Last week I had 2 going away parties... bitter sweet.

Christin, a girl from my small group, and her husband Todd moved to Manhattan, Kansas so we celebrated by wearing Kansas State purple to their party on Tuesday.

On Wednesday we went to Gloria's for Kelly's going away party. She got a job in Nashville. Who isn't jealous of that?!

On Saturday I went to Highland Park Pharmacy, an old time soda fountain. 
So fun! Especially after a few hours in the sun.
I got a Diet Coke Float, since I don't like regular coke.

On Saturday night I went to Smoke to celebrate Dirk's 40th birthday.
Happy Birthday Dirk!

Tonight (monday) I met with a discipleship group for the first time. We had a get-to-know-you dinner. I'm really excited to see what God has planned for the life of our group and in the life of it's members. I hope you will join me in praying for and about our journey. I hope to keep you updated on what God is doing in my life. Thanks for your prayers.
