actually, i am still alive

school has been consuming my life lately, unfortunately. but summer classes end july 23rd with 2 big presentations. excellent. and then i will have a month to sit and ponder on the actual insanity that is my fall schedule.

in other news. this past weekend was awesome. we spent the weekend at the lake for the fourth which was so much fun with lots of good fooDSC04722d and good times. my sister got to be there since she had the weekend off from the camp she has been working at.

If I am not on the boat, you can typically find me on this swing….I love it…


Boyfriend and I enjoyed riding on the boat on the way to see the fireworks. He was channeling my dad with the bandana. He had just buzzed his head so heDSC04736 was scared of getting sunburn. My dad also has very little hair so he wears a bandana too. They kind of matched. Haha….

This is also another place I frequented this past weekend….DSC04828 I am reading “The Scarlet Thread” by Francine Rivers. I love her writing. She wrote “Redeeming Love” which is one of the most powerful books I think I’ve ever read. I HIGHLY recommend it.

And finally, my mom, dad, boyfriend and i went to see Transformers 2….a total guy flick, and also 2 hours and 24 minutes of my life I will never get back. My dad and boyfriend enjoyed it---but my mom sat and played on our blackberries the whole time….haha

Anyway…now its back to school work and studying. blah!!!


  1. What a good student! I commend you!

  2. Oops...sorry, typo so that is why I deleted the first comment. :)
    Hi, I am a first time visitor! I have to say that The Scarlet Thread and Redeeming Love are both amazing reads! I looove Francine Rivers. The picture of you and your boyfriend is so adorable - looks like you had a wonderful time on the 4th of July! School consumed my life too when I was in college. Don't worry, you'll get through it and it will be totally worth it hun! :)
