a quick little reunion in college station.
first of all, i love these girls.
i cannot imagine life without them.

secondly, everyone has become such a grown up.
its kind of weird and very cool all at the same time.

::texas a&m::

katie and i before the aggie football game
this past weekend... we finally made it to the game!
{correction: i went to the game with mindy lou}

is your coffee boring?

i have tried and tried to find the perfect coffee...
i have gone through the vanilla latte stage,
the misto with soy, the iced coffee, and about three years ago-
i even drank carmel macchiattos?

maybe i will get brave and try
something new? what do you drink?

twenty three.

I am officially old. I have no idea why 23 seems so much older than 22... but it does. For real, not kidding. Its been a whirlwind year that began with Hurricane Ike and is ending with a four day rainstorm. {seems fitting, right?} Looking back on the year, I think it was a good one. Nothing beats senior year of college. nothing.

So in the spirit of bringing in a new year.
Here are my resolutions.
23 things that I hope to accomplish
in my 23rd year. cheers!

1. Move to NYC
2. Survive the New York Winter {i am scared}
3. Acquire a better camera & take more pictures.
4. Learn Adobe Photoshop
5. Become a top-notch emailer.
6. Perfect the homeade, from scratch oatmeal chocolate chip cookie
7. Embrace my naturally curly hair
8. Plan my brother's 21st "family" birthday in Vegas!
9. Finish reading Gone with the Wind
10. Continue my blog {its my daily dose of creativity}
11. Become a member of a church
12. Give up my coke addiction/ lessen my coke addiction
13. GET A JOB.
14. Become independent of my parents.
15. Travel to Chicago. {I've never been}
16. Call my grandparents once a week
17. Be a bridesmaid :) {yep, i said it}
18. Watch my friends as they live life & succeed & fall in love.
19. Finally get that a&m diploma.
20. Surprise my parents, an over-the-top surprise.
21. Learn to jog/run/workout ??
22. Attend a Bon Iver concert. {& inevitably cry my eyes out}
23. And to never give up on myself.

September 11.

“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children. "
-President George W. Bush

New York City... I have come to love you so.
Thinking of you today.
Wish I could witness the camaraderie of your people today,

inspiration boards.

want to know a little secret?...
and the way to my heart?

give me something to put on an inspiration board.
i basically love them. and in return, i will love you.

the most whimsical clothing for fall.
kate spade is the epitome of cute. colorful. & classy.
... and i love the owl bag.

carrie underwood.

... she has a new single.
full cd out in november. 

she is seriously too cute.

FOUR day weekend.

Its a four day weekend. Thank goodness.
It has been a whirlwind of a week & for some strange reason
I cannot seem to get organized. School has started, work 
is continuing... and its busy.

It's truly a strange time to be in college station.
I don't one hundred percent feel like I belong...
but I also don't feel like I am supposed to be anywhere 
else right now. Its just a little weird & un-normal?
{i think i just made up that word...}

So... with all of these kind of uncomfortable 
feelings, I am off to the lake for FOUR days.

Thursday, September 3, 2009

1. my birthday month {23...ouch}

fall fashion in general hits stores.
4. football season. gig em ags.
5. my parents 25th wedding anniversary :)

cheers to a great month of celebrations! so proud of my parents.

::the Psalms::

Praise Jesus for his PERFECT love. I am continually so needy of HIM.

"He HEALS the brokenhearted and binds up ALL of their wounds." -Psalm 147:3

"Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord DELIVERS him out of them ALL. He keeps ALL his bones, not one of them is broken." -Psalm 34:19

"The Lord is MERCIFUL & GRACIOUS, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast LOVE." -Psalm 103:8
