Lets play catchup!

It’s 3am…why am I awake?! Oh, that’s right to write this post that is longggg overdue. I didn’t fall off the face of the earth if that’s what you were thinking. I actually have been somewhat busy! I’ve been busy doing homework. It’s funny, 3 weeks ago when I was assigned a six page paper due in the beginning of December, I couldn’t help but think, “Man, that paper isn’t due for ages.” Well, isn’t it funny how fast time flies. Is it really the end of November!? Is it really Thanksgiving in 1 day?! Will I really be at the Packers game in 1 day?! Will I really be running my FIRST HALF MARATHON in 3 days?! Hollllyyyyyy cow! Back to what I was saying about time flies… yes it does!

Yesterday I had a job interview. Later that day I got a call & was offered the position. Today I had orientation & it went great. I’m glad I’ll be able to make a little extra cash! Not to be obnoxious, but I have to say… minimum wage in Michigan is $7.40 compared to Illinois- $8.25! But a job is a job & it’s better than nothin’!

Tonight my friends had a thanksgiving dinner, college style! (aka.. no fancy plates, all different size pots & dishes for serving & food that tasted great… but not nearly as great as what our moms can cook up!) After dinner we played a really really fun board game called, “Quelf.” It was such a riot! I am so grateful that we had our own turkey dinner tonight because I myself will be eating nachos on thanksgiving this year 😉 ) My mom will also be cooking a turkey dinner on Saturday night after my sister and I run the half marathon. I get the best of both worlds! Two turkey dinners & a Packers game!

I am suppppperrr excited for my dad to come up today! (Dad, if y0u are reading this… leave your office and come already!!)

I am supppeeerrrr excited to be at the Packers game!

I am supppeeerrrr excited to go home this weekend & see my mom & family & friends & my babies!

I am supppeeerrrr excited that it’s the holiday season! Love love loveee it!

God is so so so so great, oh yes He is!

Just a few pictures from dinner tonight… completely forgot to bring my camera so they are taken on my cell phone!

College style Thanksgiving…

Another definition of “college style thanksgiving” = eating dinner on the couch!

Time for me to go to bed…… NOW.
