So the stress continues, and the worry builds. How silly am I to worry? I know I have a Great God who is in control and loves me so much. He's my Provider, He will provide.

So I may have gone into spring break hoping to come back to school with easy sailing till graduation. I now laugh at the thought! I have no doubt that I will love and enjoy every day till May 14th, but those days will include some stress. Some stress I kind of enjoy- I like knowing that I have a design due tomorrow with the urgency of having to get it done. I do not, however, enjoy being told or thought of as being a slacker because I'm not. I promise that if I tell you I will get something done, I will! I don't like those stresses.
I did have some fun last night. I played coed intermural softball with my team, The Horties. Considering I have hardly picked up a bat or glove since 3rd grade slow pitch- I was pleasantly surprised with two hits, and one score! Woohoo! It was so fun just playing a stress free game. We like to win, but our team will have fun even if we don't. We're there to have FUN.

So catch up time (real quick!) The end of spring break was a blast! Dad took his favorite girls out to The Melting Pot. Mmm, it was delicious! We went for a celebration. I would go into more detail about the specifics of the celebration but that wouldn't be nice. Ask me in person if you would like to know :) haha
I also got to spend some time with my sweet friends from high school! I love to catch up with these girls! Me and Taylor get to see each other at college but Megan accidentally decided to go to that other school so any time we are at home we try hard to get together! We had a lunch date to Rosies and then went walking at Indian Creek! It was a beautiful day! Mmm, so much fun- I love them both!

Just a request: Pray for me. I need to not worry.

"And Then There Was Sight"

Whew, so many things to catch up on.
First: Pre-spring break, my one new meal for last week was Chicken Katherine, homemade mashed potatoes, and broccoli. All went pretty well, but it hasn't been one of my favorite creations. I wasn't feeling all that great that night so maybe my taste buds were a little off. Robyn ate with me and Matthew and she said the mashed potatoes were delicious. Woohoo, progress :)

Now on to Spring break! Me and Matthew headed to the beach Friday afternoon to meet Mammaw in Destin and later to be joined by Robyn and Greg! The beach was fun, a little chilly, and a lot windy. I didn't even put my swim suit on! Sunday mom, dad, Liz, and Tori came to join us. We all had a good time of shopping, eating, games, and lots of laughing! No doubt to say Mammaw kept us entertained the WHOLE time!

Me and Matthew had a fun time leaving the beach nice and early on Tuesday morning. 7 oclock to be exact! Eck! That's too early on spring break! We were off on our LONG journey to Atlanta. But to say the least, it was worth it! Stayed the night after that at Matthew's in Birmingham. We filled out our "Big Dance" brackets and I'm already quite into it, and routing for my teams!

Finally made it home last night- first time this whole semester! Wow, it's been too long! Trying my best to enjoy every second of this break. It's my last one! I know I have a little school to get done and stuff, but besides that RELAXATION!

Beard-Eaves Memorial Coliseum.

Tonight was the last basketball game to be played at Beard-Eaves. We actually won, so it was super great to end on a good note! After the game they had a "closing ceremony" that was all sentimental. I just think its funny because I'll be in there again for gymnastics on Friday (the official last sporting event) and graduation in May. So basically there are many more memories to come!!
Yay, another meal under my belt. Instead of doing the chicken and dumplings like I said (I didn't have enough time for that) I made a pot roast with veggies tonight! It was another success! We had our engaged friends Lauren and Kyle over so I was a little nervous to serve something I had never cooked before but it turned out just fine! I realize the pictures don't look too appetizing... just take my word for it! I'm not sure what next weeks meal will be yet. I guess I'll let Matthew go through the cookbook and pick one :)
So, Im not sure why but lately I've been in meltdown mode. I don't really know where this silly girl came from because I used to know how to keep it all together! Anyways, the most recent meltdown was due to the pressures of figuring out everything after graduation and my job and such. Going through that is such a good reminder that I'm not in control, thankfully, and to put my total trust in God. He holds my future and I'm so happy to know that. Lately I've been reading through 1st Samuel about David- and Saul's pursuit of him. David trusted in God so much. So many times (I've read about two so far) he had the opportunity to kill Saul and get out of the danger he was in. But he knew that Saul was anointed and wasn't to be messed with. He let God hold his future and everything that was to come for him- when he could have so easily taken it into his own hands. So often I need to be reminded to be more like David and let God be in complete control and take comfort in knowing He is in control!
