Highlights From the Past Month

I've gone for far too long without blogging, so I have to condense my past month into this short but sweet picture story of what I've been up to. The writer in me would love to go into detail about all of these pictures/events, but I think I'll just let the pictures talk for themselves haha. So here they are, in no particular order!

MoTD (WARNING: this one's a tear jerker)

"When all our tears have reached the sea Part of you will live in me..." [[ So I have this problem where I fall asleep on the couch most nights til like 3 (if I'm lucky - 6 am if I'm not so lucky), and then I have to get up and get ready for bed, and often times I'll stay up for a couple hours and get things done that I can't usually get done during the day (ie. blog). ]] So that's what happened tonight, and right now I'm thinking about one year ago today (and listening to sad Tim McGraw songs - probably not the best idea hah). One year ago today, I got to hang out with my grandma and have a conversation with her for the last time ever. If only I had known that day would be the last time... I would've stayed longer. I would've said "I love you" more. We would've reminisced more. I would've told her how much I'd enjoyed having her as a best friend. I would've told her she was my hero. I would've read her Bible to her. I would…

First App Game as a Student

f o o t b a l l    s e a s o n ! Last Saturday, I got to go to my first Appalachian football game as an Appalachian student. We were really worried it would rain, because that's what the weather reports had been saying. So I was kind of bummed (okay, really bummed), but still determined to go, but at the same time kind of dreading sitting in the rain. But we (me, Ashley, and Zach) left High Point anyway, even though the sky looked daunting, and headed to Hickory to fetch Alex and then head to Boone. I was worried because we were late, and we didn't know what the weather would be like, and even more worried when we saw masses of people leaving the stadium when we finally got there at half time, but when we rode by the stadium and I saw the all of the people still sitting in their seats - a sea of black and gold - all of my worries faded. The feeling I got was just indescribable. My worry quickly changed to complete awe as I saw the bright lights and heard the roar of the crowd …

Just a Fun Day (& more!)

Well, I would've written this blog sooner, but for some reason I couldn't get blogger to work. Anyway, on Tuesday, I had one of the most relaxing days I've had in a while. What did I do? Shopped. All day.  First I went to Carter Brother's for lunch with Jennifer.  We don't get to hang out that often, so it was really good to get to catch up with her.  After lunch, we went to Friendly Shopping Center.  All that needs to be said about that is that we share a love for shopping and finding good deals, and some GREAT deals were found on that trip :) It was also a nice bonding time for us, haha. After that, I met up with Brooke at Hobby Lobby, and we drooled over the overwhelming abundance of Christmas decorations.  Hobby Lobby is so wonderful and overwhelming and great.  And of course, Brooke and I also share that love of shopping and finding good deals.

My favorite thing I picked up that day, though, was at Hobby Lobby.  As a graduation gift, Zach had my diploma framed, and…
