Couldn't have asked for a better weekend!


This weekend was AMAZING! Saturday afternoon, Andrew and I drove up to Boone for Fan Fest and to see some of our friends that we haven't seen in a ridiculously long time. It was crazy to see all the changes the stadium has undergone and it's not even finished yet.
The visitors side where they added like 2,000 seats
The home side will be amazing once it's done

After I finished marveling at all the changes, I was able to actually start enjoying the day and start looking for our friends! Thankfully it didn't take long and we just walked around and talked to everyone.

Lovely Meagan!

The best part of Fan Fest is being able to watch the team scrimmage and get a taste for the what the season will be like. And I have a feeling that this season will be pretty awesome. Another great part of being in Boone is being able to eat dinner at Dos Amigos. Even if the rest of the day had been a bust, the cheese dip would've made up for it. Unfortunately, after dinner we had to start heading back, but not before stopping in Blowing Rock to see the wonderful Chris Wilson.
We also got to see a couple of our other friends when we got to where he was, so that was a great surprise. We finally left to drive back down the mountain around 9:30 so that we could get back at a decent hour and go pick up Sam. When we got home, I checked my email and found out that Steffi and her husband were going to be in Boone on Sunday. Needless to say, that kinda put a damper on an otherwise perfect Saturday. But by the time I fell asleep, I had figured out a way that I could still see her. Around 11:45 this morning, I left Charlotte and made the drive to Winston-Salem. I spent most of the day with my parents, but I got to spend about an hour with both her and Andrew at Starbucks. That hour completed the best weekend ever.
So there is my long story on why this weekend was the best one ever!

Praise the Lord, i have a job!!


After months and months of searching and praying for a job, I have one! God totally just shoved it in my face. It started this morning when I got an email from a friend from high school that I haven't even spoken to in months. She was telling me that the pediatricians office that she worked for needed some front desk help. I called her and spoke to her and then her boss and then went in for an interview at 12. The rest is history! It's so crazy just because they had over 100 applicants for the position, but the clinic director (manager?) told me that she hadn't found the person that would fit perfectly with the rest of girls that worked in the front. And she told me that she believed that I would be a great fit. I have to go tomorrow and handle all of the HR stuff and I will start on August 25th. I am so excited! And the best part about it is that I can wear scrubs if I want to! It's the little things in life that make me happy!

I hate them and I'm not good at them


Goodbyes suck. I have NEVER been good with or at them. Well I had to go through one yesterday (sorta). My best friend all through college, the girl that stood by side through the ups and downs that life can throw at you, the one that I laughed and cried with over boys, is moving to Kentucky. Louisville to be exact. The wonderful person I am referring to is Allison Bowen. She is moving there to start her full time ministry working with inner city children. And, yes, I know she is doing what God has called her to do, but it's still hard. I am so incredibly proud of her, and I can't wait to hear about all the things that she is doing.

Haircuts and such


So after MONTHS of having to let my hair grow, I was finally able to get it cut yesterday! Nothing huge, just a couple of inches. But it feels AMAZING!

It feels so strange to not be starting classes in a few weeks. To know that I am finished with school forever, is just hard to believe. For months and months I was marking the days off of my calendar until graduation and now that the new school year is approaching and I will not have to stand in eternally long lines for books, food, and parking spots, I feel a little out of place in life. I feel as though I am in a very in between space (for lack of better phrasing). I know I'm married, searching for a full-time-"grown-up" job, but at the same time, I will miss getting up for class, meeting friends in the student union and getting into football games for free (that's a biggie). However, I suppose that is life in a nutshell. Change; it happens. But I am excited for everything to that is to come. And I know that for at least one of those games to take place in Kidd Brewer Stadium, I will stand and yell as proud alumni...but I may be standing in the student section.

Things do not change; we change.
