These two pictures basically sum up why I love my boyfriend and how we spent our Thanksgiving. :) 

I wish I could post more about Thanksgiving but I guess I should study... That is why this is so late. Finals are coming and then this semester is over! Finally!! Pray for me! I need to do really good on my finals to have a secure spot in vet school. Biochem just has way to much information to remember for one test... and my teacher isn't very good at narrowing things down in reviews. Happy studying to all my college friends!

The whole reason I was posting that blog was to publish some exciting news and I totally forgot! haha
I am going to be the Girl's Asst Dean at Ozark next semester! I think it is a great opportunity. I have really been praying about it and everything just seems to be falling into place. Plus it's closer to Kody! :) I know... sounds crazy! But, I think it will be really good for me to be around people again before I get into vet school and have no life...


My life has just been crazy and will be for the next month until the semester is over. I went to Kody's last weekend for his birthday and then I had to feed this past weekend. Kody told me he wanted me to buy him boots for his birthday. Of course, I was excited! :) They are Ariat's like mine. His are just a "little" bigger and a little less pink...

He looks so handsome! 

I had a biochem test Friday so I have been studying like crazy! I think it went well... There are so many things I would like to blog about but I just don't have the time. 

I'm so excited about Thanksgiving! I can't wait to see everyone! 

I found these super cute pies in a jar on one of the many wedding blogs I like to look at. I think this would be perfect for my wedding someday! ;)

I have found a bunch of other super cute things. someday I'm gonna put it all together and post it on here just for fun! 

I guess I should study... boo! One more week... I know this is a lot of random things but I just wanted to put a few things up!

One day I have nothing to do... the next I have so much to do that there is not enough time in the day to get it all accomplished! Funny how life does that to you... Maybe it's because when I don't have much to do I procrastinate, telling myself I will have plenty of time to do it later.

Something is wrong with me...

 For some reason I have really been in the mood for something pumpkin and I really wanted to make it from scratch. I usually don't like baking or cooking but I since I have nothing else to do when I'm at school I kind of have been getting more into it. I got this recipe from allrecipes.com They are pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. I added pecans and used mini chocolate chips. They are really really yummy. Especially for this time of year! :) I love fall!

I also made some pasta stuff that sounded really disgusting but had really good reviews so I tried it. It has sour cream, mayonnaise, and artichoke hearts. I added mushrooms to it and used vege chik patties for chicken. It really was good! Different but actually quite yummy! :) It's not real pretty so I didn't take a picture. ha

Weekend Recharge!

This weekend was definitely good for me! Kody came over and the kids too. We played with playdoh, carved pumpkins, played outside, rode the four-wheeler, celebrated Brett's Birthday, and got to see Carrie Underwood in concert! :) Here are a few pictures from the fun weekend we had...

Of course... he made a Razorback out of playdoh!

 He thought it was "yucky" and wouldn't touch it so this was pretending for the picture. haha
 The boys made the one on the left. The girls made the on the right. 

 The Birthday boy! Can't believe he is already 6...

 We went to the park for the party! It was a gorgeous evening.

 She is my inspiration. Not only does she have a great voice but she put on a great show and she is a great person on the inside too! She "flew" around in the back of this truck so she got really close to us. The closest one is even more blurry but the back of the truck said Carrie. It really was a great show! :)  Definitely recommend it to everyone!
 At the Carrie Underwood concert. It's a little blurry, but I forgot to charge my little camera I always keep in my purse so these are taken with my phone. 

It was a great weekend and I'm ready to get lots done this week! I already took Biology subject test so I'm just trying not to worry about it. It's in God's hands now. I can't do anything else. If this is what I'm supposed to do it will work out. 
Friday is my fall break so I have a short week. Yay!

Come As You Are...

I have already posted that I am super frustrated with parts of my life right now, but today I am sick and just emotional I guess. I never cry, but I was on my way back from class and heard this song on the radio. I just started bawling. This song doesn't even really have anything to do with me. I don't have a horrible past but it just hit me that God is always there for us. Even when we forget about Him and try to do things our way.  I'm not dying, I have an amazing family, a super wonderful boyfriend, a place to live, and money to buy groceries. I'm not lacking for anything. Maybe I get lonely sometimes, and feel like things aren't going my way, and maybe sometimes I mess up but God is always there for me and He has given me everything I need. I needed reminding and I'm really trying to look past the bad and look at the good.

Brett's Birthday

Today Brett is 6 years old so I thought I would post some pics of the fun years we have had with him! 

This is the youngest picture I have on my computer. At my graduation in 2007.

What a sweet brother.

Frustrated with all the picture taking.... ha

Brett you never cease to entertain me, my life wouldn't be the same without you. I have more pictures of you and Emma than anyone or anything else. This is only a small sampling. I hope you have a super fun Birthday and can't wait to have more fun and take more pictures this weekend! I love you Brett! Happy Birthday!

Get Over It!

I have just really been in a slump lately... I can't seem to get motivated to do anything I need to do and want to do everything I can't do right now.

I have a new horse in my pasture for awhile and have yet to get to ride her. I'm so excited to ride her. She is well behaved and I don't have to fight her all the time. Maybe this weekend I will get to ride her but for now I get to study.

That's Roxy... she doesn't really fit into the color scheme of my herd but we accept her anyway. No racism in my pasture. :)

I really need to clean up my saddle and tack. My dad and I got the barn cleaned up a couple weeks ago and the blister on my hand is just no going away. ha It looks so much better now and the crazy amount of wasps and spiders are out of my tack room so I can actually go in there without getting eaten alive. So many projects I wanna do at home and not enough time to do them.

I don't know how I will ever get through vet school when I'm already so tired of school and studying! Biochem is just horrible and I can't seem to make my self get caught up and try. It just makes me more frustrated. So this afternoon I'm not going to come to work and just stay at my apt, turn off the tv, and study!

On a happy note... I bought new boots yesterday. I contemplated over it for a long time... I couldn't decide because they are so expensive and I could get toms and it would be less selfish. I used some of the money my aunt Sharon gave me for keeping Roxy. I know I will wear them a lot because they match basically everything and I couldn't find any Toms that I knew I could wear with all my clothes. Toms will be my next big treat for myself. Here is a picture of them...

I'm so ready for the weekend but for now I better get to class and then study the day away...

Every 3rd weekend I have to feed the treadmill herd of horses... I don't mind the task but I do mind that I'm stuck at school all weekend. I miss out on fun things and I get very lonely. It is really  hard when it is a beautiful day and I would love to be outside walking at the farm, camping, riding horses, anything but be here. It's bad enough to be here by myself during the week. Life is hard sometimes... but it goes on. My parents come visit after church and on Sunday I head home for the day to do laundry. Friday nights seem to never end though... I read, watch nooma videos, and try to go to sleep at 8 but it just isn't the same without family or friends. I'm excited about the career I have chosen just not excited about being at a public university while all my friends enjoy time together. As I sit here by myself I realize that there must be something to do with my time. I try to spend time with God, reading my Bible and studying, because I know I fall behind during the week. I know that I really am not alone... He's always here with me. I'm not a people person but I miss my friends and family.

This isn't the best way to start a blog I'm sure but I intend to use this blog to record my thoughts, happy moments, sad moments, and hard times. I don't intend for anyone to read it and there will be many grammatical errors I'm sure but sometimes it is just good to write things down.

I have a great boyfriend who showed up at my door Thursday to surprise me after a very hard week. I turned in my application to vet school on Friday, which is very stressful, and have so much studying to do.

I spent last weekend with 2 of my favorite kiddos. We had fun making cookies, playing outside and making a mess.

I love to take pictures so there will be a lot of them on this blog.

I'm not a great writer and this isn't well thought out but things will get better.
