I hope you had a beautiful weekend! I had a fun time, spent Friday night at the Adorn college group at reality, and then came home and watched "He's just not that into you." I hope to one day be the exception, haha. Then Saturday had blenders, say Christopher Lloyd (aka Doc Brown from Back to the Future) and then went to state st to study, and then the bball game, which we won, and then to the party at the Treehouse, which was a blast because I got to meet some new people, and hang out with some of my favorite people. Then woke up this morning, and was greeted by beautiful blue skies, and headed to church, and the drive along the coast was just amazing, and at church we were just in constant prayer for Haiti, as I hope many of you are as well. We learned about this organization called Child Hope International, which is a Godsend to the children of Haiti. I hope and pray you all have a beautiful week!
These are a few of my favorite things this week
1. this coffee date outfit
2. Cookie dough ice cream!! this is my favorite ever
3. Pink Tulips
4. London... I miss you!
5. This depiction of secret love

well today i just wanted to post about a few munchkins who are pretty near and dear to my heart! I love them very much, and miss them!! Today some sad things took place to affect the life of one of my loves, and I just pray that God will work through this event in her life, and make her a better person for this. She's a strong little one, and I just hope that she will be ok. That being said, I just wanted to do a post on these little ones whom I have watched grow up, and whom I feel like are a part of my family. I feel like I have about 15 other brothers and sisters, and I care whole heartedly about them, and it hurts me to see them hurt. So Im just asking for some strength to not be upset about a decision that confuses me, and hurts some one I love who does not deserve this, and is not even old enough to understand the rejection. I hope that all of you are having a good week.

This is what I would have rather been doing today, anything other than getting out of bed to brave the storm... cuddling would have been nice, and much warmer. Hope you are all staying safe and dry.

Hello my darlings,
I have found the best website EVER!!!
I found it on the wonderful Sarah Von's blog http://www.yesandyes.org/
It is truly AMAZING!!! I was in tears, but i absolutely love it.
I have decided to make it my goal to become more like the people in those posts, to do more random acts of kindness, and to actively look into different ways to volunteer, and make a difference.
I hope it inspires you!

I am in love with him. I loved him in She's the man, and Step Up and you may not know this, but Coach carter. I just think that he is great. And I have mixed feelings about his new movie, Dear John. I love him, but all of Nicholas Sparks' books end really sadly. So I don't know, we will see. Either way, he's gorgeous.

I cannot believe it is Wednesday, this week is going by fast, and slow at the same time if that makes sense at all. haha, please excuse me, I am already a little fried from my schedule. Anyways, I am currently reading the book above, and I absolutely love it! I told my mom I try and read Julie Garwood books slowly because I love them sooo much! Especially any of the series related to the Buchannans, I just love them, and I have read all of them multiple times. I highly recommend them. The women are heroic and daring, and independent (and I love that) and the men are either in the FBI, the police department, or the armed forces, who doesn't love a man in uniform? Anyways, I just love these books, and I wish she would write more often, but I guess I just have to be more patient. I highly recommend any of her books, but I particularly loved Shadow Music and this one is turning out to be great as well! Ok, darlings, I hope that you are making it through your week with grace and loveliness.

Hello beautiful people,
well, in the spirit of my new adventure (taking a ballet class) I decided this lovely picture was appropriate. Tomorrow, one of my friends and I are going to buy leotards, tights, and ballet flats..... and perhaps even a tutu we will have to see.. Anyways, I hope you are having a lovely week!
1) Do a daily devotion
2) Figure out 3 life plans (money, job, house, etc...)
Hello my dears,
I hope that you have a wonderful Monday. It is the beginning of the month, and I thought this was a good quote to start off the new semester. I hope that you all have a beautiful day, and remember to count your blessings.
Hello my loves,
Ok, so usually I will have 5 new things about me, and then 5 cute things from online, but I am going to put it off til next week when I have more time to prepare it, because this weekend has been crazy, and I don't think it would be fair to you to put up something lame. However, I do have to tell you that I love my new apartment. My roomies are wonderful, and God has truly blessed me with these wonderful women in my life. My girlfriends have been great, it was so wonderful to have everyone back, this weekend reminded me of how loved I am, and how blessed I am to have these wonderful girls in my life. As well I got to hang out with my guyfriends, and that was a treat as well, they are wonderful, a tad crazy, but great, and they love me for who I am, and I love them too. Anyways, it is just very nice to be leave home, only to feel like I am coming to another home. Well I hope that you have a wonderful week. It's my first week back at school, so wish me luck!

Well this is my celebrity crush of the week; Charlie Hunnam. I think that he is adorable. I saw him in the Greenstreet Hooligans, and Nicholas Nickleby. He was great in both of those, and I think he is fabulous, and very good looking! He is now in the show Sons of Anarchy, and he does not look as lovely in that show, but still love him.

Better late then never right?? Wednesday's book review... here it is. One of my favorite author's is Tara Janzen. The book I just finished is Breaking Loose. I love this series, its about these undercover agents that drive BA classic cars. They are assassins when they need to be, and then they rescue things for the government... and of course there is a love story, because otherwise there would be no reason for me to read them. Of course it is for an older crowd, but I love them, and since it is a series, I am waiting for the next book to come out on pins and needles.

This is most definitely love at first sight. I loved him on The Bachelorette, and I am SOOOO excited he is the new bachelor, me and the girls I watched the Bachelorette with were praying he would be the new Bachelor. We love him. I watched the premiere last night, and oh my is it going to be an interesting season. He's got some real crazies on his hands.
So this is day 2 of my "schedule" and here is the beautiful picture as promised. THis would be the ideal way my girlfriends and I would meet up the next time I see them, but in all actuality we will probably all crowd together in my one girlfriend's apartment to watch How I Met Your Mother together next Monday. I miss them terribly, and can not wait to see them!! Alright my loves, hope you have a great week!

Hello Beautiful People,
Well here is an update in pictures of what I have been doing sense we last talked... Here is the Christmas edition. By next week I will have my Big bear trip, my new apt, and New Years up here.((hopefully))
Wow, it has been a while, and I have truly missed the blogosphere. It has been a crazy couple of weeks, and unfortunately we do not have wireless internet at my house so I have been unable to post in a very long time. But I am back now, and I am going to try something new. With all the time I have had, I have come up with a plan for the new year. I am going to start a "blog schedule" so to speak. Here is the layout
Monday - Quote or bible verse
Tuesday - a beautiful picture to make you smile(and me too) and 2 goals for the week
Wednesday - possibly a book/movie review (this one may be left out if I dont have time)
Thursday - character or plot idea (this is also just an idea)/ or celebrity crush
Friday - Update and Happy Friday picture!
Sunday - 5 new things about me and 5 things I love (hopefully I will come up with a cute name for this by this Sunday.
I am sooooooo excited about this new year! I can not wait! I just think 2010 is going to be the most awesome year of my life!
