On Our Way! Spring Break 2009!

I'M IN FLORIDA!! Catherine, Kristin, Amy, Kara, and I drove 18(ish) hours overnight from Waco to Tampa for Spring Break 2009. We drove from Waco to Houston, where we left our cars at Cat's house and my mom met us there to give us the BABS (big a** blue suburban). We left Houston at about 6 pm and got to Tampa around noon. I drove about the first 7 hours and then slept through Mississippi and most of Alabama. Driving through Florida took a while, but we're finally here! We stopped at Amy's house for a little bit to see her mom and dad and ate lunch at a cute little burger place called Frankie's. Amy's sister Eryn met us there. We love Eryn! It's her spring break too, so she'll be staying at the beach house with us. Now, we're in the car, about 10 minutes away from the beach house. I'll take tons of pictures once we get there to show y'all what it looks like. Plus, we made a few videos on the way up here and I'll get those posted later too! More updates later! Love.

The Rollercoaster Ride I Call Life

Hello friends. So much has happened since the last time we conversed. Well, I spoke and you read:) The spring always seems to be a busy semester until spring break (which starts friday at noon, btw) and then things seem to slow down a bit. This has definitely been my busiest spring in college so far and its been one heck of a rollercoaster ride. Now, I'll update you!

Last weekend, after about 7 weeks of practice, my sorority won 1st place in Baylor's 2009 All-University Sing competition. For any Baylor alum, family, or friends, you know what an achievement this is. For those of you who don't, Sing is an event where greek organizations put on a 7 minute production that includes singing, dancing, great music, loud costumes, huge props, and a ton of talent. Baylor Tri Delta is sort of known for always doing well in Sing, but it was an amazing experience to perform in and win a Sing competition, not just watch old videos of past performances. By the way, did I mention that I had a solo in our act this year? Oh, well I did:) It was such an amazing experience and I loved everything about it! Check out our act by clicking on the title of this post and let me know what you think!

Also, I received a letter yesterday announcing that I have been accepted into the Baylor Communication in New York program for the spring of 2010. I am uber excited for this amazing opportunity! I'm not going to lie though, I am a bit anxious. But I also know that this is an opportunity that I have been dreaming about since I was a little girl. Going to New York for my last semester at Baylor will help me make that transition from college student into the work force and teach me some valuable lessons about life. Plus, its going to be hella fun! I will take 6 hours of classes, plus have a 6-hour PR internship. I don't start looking for my internship until next October, but they already want a $750 deposit before I leave for spring break. I guess its time to commit:) Do you want to know one of the best parts about finding out this extremely great news? When I told my boyfriend, Luke, about it, he couldn't have been more excited for me. It is such a blessing to know that I am dating a man that supports my education and encourages me to follow my dreams. I love that boy so much!

Last, but certainly not least, I have an internship this semester at Central United Methodist Church, where I am the youth and rec sports intern. I absolutely love this job! I am learning so much about myself, how to spread my wings, and the different ways other ministries work. God has continued to grow and strech me beyound what I can imagine and He is equipping me for big things. I can feel it:)

So, that's whats been going on. I'm leaving for Florida on Friday to spend about 2/3 of my spring break with my roommates and friends on the beach and then I'll be down in South Texas for my best friend's birthday, a friend's wedding, and to see the boy, of course! The next week I'm going skiing with my family in Durango, CO and at the end of March I am running in the Capitol 10k in Austin, TX with my little sister, Claire. It doesn't look life my life with be slowing down anytime soon. I guess I shouldn't bank on that whole "life slowing down after spring break" theory. I'll keep y'all updated!

"Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light...
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O ruler of all."
