i officially have a new apartment....it's weird! but it's good. i get to go on a cruise this next week to mexico. we were supposed to be going to cozumel, but instead we are now going to calica...but i'm not picky, so this should be an awesome vacation! some of my fav pine cove people are going, although i wish that others were coming also!! but i will make sure and post some fun pics! after i get back from the cruise, i will head up to school and start the restart of my future as an artist!! yippie!!
on another note, i just wanted to send a little love note to you guys....i am so blessed to have these beautiful friends in my life. i love you all so much, and i am so thankful that the Lord has blessed my life in this way...with a beautiful family of friends! so thanks so much for being the wonderful people you are. i'm a little nervous about this whole moving back to school thing. it's gonna be different...but i think it's going to be good different. we'll see. haha. i'm not too worried, but it's gonna be a change for me.
so today i'm going to leave you with a beautiful song that i like a lot...so here it is (it's just a today song...haha)

What are You Doing New Year's Eve?
Ella Fitzgerald

Maybe it's much too early in the game
Aah, but I thought I'd ask you just the same
What are you doing New Years
New Year's Eve?

Wonder who's arms will hold you good and tight
When it's exactly twelve o'clock at night
Welcoming in the New Year
New Year's Eve

Maybe I'm crazy to suppose
I'd ever be the one you chose
Out of a thousand invitations
You received

Aah, but in case I stand one little chance
Here comes the jackpot question in advance
What are you doing New Years
New Years Eve?

have a happy new years eve guys!! kisses at midnight...

Written by Shawn McDonald

As I look into the stars
Pondering how far away they are
How You hold them in Your hands
And still You know this man
You know my inner most being, oh
Even better than I know, than I know myself

What a beautiful God
What a beautiful God
And what am I, that I might be called Your child
What am I, what am I
That You might know me, my King
What am I, what am I, what am I

As I look off into the distance
Watching the sun roll on by
Beautiful colors all around me, oh
Painted all over the sky
The same hands that created all of this
They created you and I

What a beautiful God
What a beautiful God
And what am I, that I might be called Your child
What am I, what am I
That You might know me, my King
What am I, what am I
That You might die, that I might live
What am I, what am I, what am I, what am I

what a beautiful song...

so here are some things that i...well, just read.

so...i'm quite certain that there are so many of you out there that feel like they should read a little bit about my life, so i feel like i should share some things that i really like, as well as some that i really don't like...just to give life some balance. i know that i shared some of my favorite things, but this will be a little different, as i am in a more direct mood at the current moment. so here goes.

things that i like...
hot beverages (they make me feel like a grown-up...you know, coffee, ho cho, tea, etc.)
a good book (highly underrated these days)
holding hands (it's just a cute thing)
long hugs (they make me feel wanted & comfy)
the stars (they are a truly beautiful creation from God)
sandwiches (hands down my favorite food)
photographs (i love everything about them...except that i sometimes forget the fun stories behind them)
sports (it takes missing a season of your favorite sport to realize how much you really love it i.e. college football)
balloons (don't they always just make you want to smile?!)
a plate of really well made ethnic food (an amazing plate of mexican/italian/indian/etc. food can make you forget your troubles...haha)
a great movie that you can watch over and over again (enough said.)
kissing (i know it sounds shallow, but i really miss it sometimes...too honest? oh well.)

now for some things that i don't like...
being talked down to (i really dislike it when people do that...i guess you would call that being elitist? not sure.)
stereotypes (labels should only be put on jars)
boys that take advantage of a vulnerable situation with a stupid joke (you'll have to ask for more specifics if you need them, aka "laming it up")
onions (enough said there. ick. double ick. ewww. sorry, just a large disdain there.)
feeling small (i've had too much experience with this in my life...both good humility and bad humility...)

that's all i can think of right now, but i would love to hear about some of your lovely likes and dislikes, since i would love to know some more random things about my friends! kisses...

it's moving day! it's moving day...hey hey hey...

hello there all my darlings! i officially have an apartment in fort worth!! i'm quite excited, however the moving process is now going to begin. can i get a collective "oh goody!"?...i didn't think so. i absolutely despise moving, but we'll see how bad it really is. so i'm hoping that the Lord will completely bless this new time in my life. i am a little nervous about living by myself and about being in fort worth again, but we'll see how all that works out!! love you guys and we'll talk soon!! kisses.

xanga random posting

You need to list five odd, random, strange FACTS about you. And then once that is finished you need to tag 5 different people and leave comments on their site telling them that they were tagged, and to read the rules on your site. Then list the 5 people you tagged.

1) i love popsicles. love them. i do.
2) i have bigger left foot than right foot.
3) i often speak in movie quotes...sometimes people notice, sometimes they don't.
4) i never wear shoes when i drive.
5) i LOVE to bake, but i never eat what i make.

i'm now going to list: trisha, linz, derek, dan, and marcus...
so i've been trying to think of something to write about for the past couple of days, but i keep coming up dry. so for now, i'm just going to say merry CHRISTmas...i hope you remember the reason why we celebrate christmas, and if not, let me know and i would love to tell you about it! have a great christmas...love y'all! kisses.

some of my favorite things

no...i'm not going to bust into my rendition of any songs from sound of music...i'll spare you that! but i will say that i wanted to list some of my favorite things...cause they are fun!!

feeling really connected with my Jesus
being in the mountains
holding hands with a sweet boy
running through the sprinklers...even the ones on campus @ tcu
funny words (...like "sham poop healed up"...that's for you lauren)
knowing that modesty is actually respected by boys
ballet that i still remember how to do
christmas lights...anytime (which is why i had a prelit christmas tree in my room for a year)
the feeling you get after you go running
being in love...
gilmore girls (i know...it's obvious linz!!)
looking at pictures
hugs from good friends (there's something special about them)
hearing "i love you" from someone unexpectedly

those are just a few...i'll let you know if i think of more! kisses.

oh me oh my

ok...so here i am...it's all new. i decided to make some sort of change. i think it sprung from the idea that almost everyone i know has gone from that xanga thing to here, so i thought i would give it a shot. so here goes...i'm going to work on posting some pictures...so we'll see if that picture of me and eric really makes it up, but for now, let me just say that i would love to pray for anyone that happens to read this thing...even though i will say very little that is relevant or interesting...haha. but know that the Lord loves you and i would love for you to let me know how i can pray for you!

oh, and this is where i used to babble...so feel free to check it out!
