Parents Coming Tomorrow!

Tomorrow night my parents will be here - the third time in the past 4 years. Kinda sad, huh? I am going to spend a lot of tomorrow morning packing my things and getting ready for their arrival. Michelle & Corban, and Halley & Amanda will all be here as well, but not at the same time.

I cannot WAIT until the Sex and the City movie comes out. It's going to be an awesome movie. I believe it comes to theatres in a week or so. I most certinaly have a countdown on my MySpace page, if you care to look at it. Anywho, I read an article today in the New Yorker that interviwed Sarah Jessica Parker, and it was a good reminder that SJP and Carrie Bradshaw aren't the same person. I keep forgetting that just because I see her in a photo or a movie that she's still just SJP and not her iconic character. It must be hard for not only her but the rest of the cast.
Anywho, the article also talked about how the "old New York" is now lost because of the people responding to the Sex and the City tv show, and other movies and tv shows filmed in or about that area. Because of this, I am slightly sad because I am going to New York on my honeymoon. I hope to see something of this old New York and possibly even see some Celebrities! haha. I'm just like the rest of them, huh? I would never want to live in NYC, and I think those thoughts will be solidified once I get back from the honeymoon.

Tonight I am relaxing with my sweetheart, seeing as how this will be the last time I get to do that until we get married in September. Sigh. This is how small-town America works, I s'pose.

One day until Graduation! Here's to the Seniors!


Weddings Everywhere!

My Graduation is in one week! How exciting! I can't wait!

Today I went to Jasie Sharp's bridal shower and it was a lot of fun. I was late and I got lost in Midland, but I made it. It was at her house and hosted by her mother and bridesmaids. It was so adorable. We all sat around and had cake and shared recipies. I think I'm going to steal her recipie card idea in the invitation. I love cooking and I would love to have every family's favorite dish. It's almost a crime! haha.

Anywho, needless to say, I got a bunch of ideas from today's events. I have food ideas, favor ideas and cake ideas. Who knew Sam's had a decent cake? My sister is now working on the Bridal shower for me, so hopefully things will get done. I am excited she's helping because now this gives her something to take pride in helping me with. I think I'm going to ask for it to be moved to Michael's house instead of at the First Baptist Church in Sherman. It will be a more home-y place and it will be easier for out-of-towners to find. Only a week left here and I can get started on the rest of the planning.

This summer there are a TON of weddings! I know two girls personally that are getting married (Jasie in Midland, and Nydia in El Paso). I know of at least 5 other couples that are getting married. My gosh! At least I didn't add to that and we're getting married in the "Fall." If you can call September the fall! :)

126 days until my wedding!


End of Senior Year

It's finally here. The end of my time at college has arrived. I only have one final left, and then I'm free. It's a little scary considering I don't have a job yet, but I am excited as well. This gets me a little closer to being married.

I've pretty much decided to work for non-profit now. I was going to work for a big agency in north Dallas, but I don't think I will be happy. I need to feel like I'm making a difference instead of making a profit. It sounds crazy, but it makes sense to me. I applied to several places in the past couple days, so hopefully I will start hearing back from them soon.

The wedding plans are underway, and I can't wait to get back to Sherman so I can finish things up. It seems like forever away, but my last day as a Buck is in 4 months.

Also, my time in Alpha Phi Omega is over. I spoke for my last time in front of the Beta Sigma Chapter while I was giving my senior speech. I ended to speech with saying I was done forever, and it hadn't hit me until that moment that I was done. It's such a weird feeling to be done with something that was so much of your life for so long. I'm gonna be going cold turkey when I get back to Sherman. We'll see how that goes!
On the left is a picture of a small piece of my APO family, the Smalliards. The blonde is my little, Kyla and the red head is her little, Amy. AKA. We were having our last family dinner, well more like my last, at Gardski's on Broadway. We always had our String Thing dinner at ZooKini's and the regular family dinners at Gardski's. I s'pose I will be going to one as an alumnus, I hope.
Fairly soon I will be in another family: my own. A new one, that is. Michael and I will be our own family. This thought makes me smile, and I can't wait for that part of our lives. 4 months to go!
