This is just a little post to update you on what I've been up to since I've been home. Last time we talked I was still in Mississippi. Well, I'm in Maryland now, and I've been pretty busy this past week. Let's go a little out of order and start with Sunday...
Let's see...what else has been going on. I have been spending a LOT of time with my family. I went to my brother's house to tuck in his kids one night, I spent the day with my sister and her kids, I went to my nephew's t-ball game, and I also babysat my sister's kids overnight. Today, I even went to my niece Abby's preschool to volunteer! She is so smart, outgoing, and polite. I was so proud to be her Aunt!! The kids mean the world to me, and doing everything I can with them and for them is my number one priority when I'm home.
I've also spent some time with some friends. Glenelg Prom was the other day, so I spent the day helping Lauren and Sydney get ready and take pictures. Here's a picture of Lauren's makeup that I did!
PS -- did anyone watch The Bachelorette? What are your thoughts? I love Eric, and I am so sad that he passed away :( It will be really interesting to watch how this all pans out. I am disappointed that I'll miss most of this season due to my Africa trip. And speaking of Africa...
Today I went shopping for A LOT of clothes for my Africa trip! My one stop shop, of course, was Nordstrom. Be on the lookout for all of my little outfits while I'm over there. I also got my hair and nails done. Except for all of the schoolwork and packing I have to do (I know, where are my priorities?)...I feel set!
Tomorrow Amber gets into town and I'M SO EXCITED! This will be the first friend that I've ever brought home from college! I have A LOT planned out for us that we'll have to fit in two days (three if you count the day she'll be in town after the trip), and I can't wait to get started! I miss her a lot and actually feel incomplete when we're apart (I know, sounds like we're dating or something). She really is my BEST friend, and I could not pick a better person to do this amazing trip with!! Look for a post RIGHT before I leave on Saturday so y'all can see what we did while she was in Maryland!
Leaving you with some inspiration...
This is my time, and that's exactly what I'm doing.
Have a GREAT Wednesday everyone!!
