High Five for Friday 6.15.12

Glad I remembered to do this 35 minutes before Friday is technically over… oops!

1. Well, the wedding happened! And it was quite a wonderful weekend for all involved. I can’t even believe how blessed I am to have the family and friends that I have. Things may change, but I know they’ll always be there for me, and I’m aware now more than ever of just how much of a blessing they are to me. I wouldn’t be anywhere without my family, and I know some aren’t fortunate enough to be close to their extended family, and that makes me that much more grateful for the closeness in my own family. We’re all so excited to welcome Nick and his family into ours!

There are SO many pictures on my Facebook, but since I had to pick just one to put here, I think this one is appropriate 🙂

2. I’ve done so much musically this week. I’ve spent a lot of quality time with both my guitar and my piano, and I can’t even begin to say how much it helps. Sometimes life is just a little weird, and I had forgotten how sweet it is to get lost in music. It’s also nice to see myself improving… I can almost play barre chords with a decent sound on my guitar. Sweet!

3. I went shopping for some apartment things this week! I got some pillows, and some other random decorations for my room. Moving in with my roomies will make me feel like an adult… yeah that’s weird.

4. Yesterday I went to Starbucks and got a lot of biology work done. Productivity is always a plus. Makes me feel better about myself! That might warrant the #OCDProblems hashtag…

5. Tori and I went to Athens today! She had to take a math placement test, so I tagged along and we had some adventure time after her test. I’ve missed the Classic City, so it was good to be back for the day. I got to see several friends and I also got to go to my favorite place ever, none other than Two Story Coffeehouse! I don’t think coffee has ever tasted so good! I can’t wait to see our many more adventures once T. Riggs is in Athens next year!


High Five for Friday 6.8.12

So, when this post goes live, I’ll be living it up in the whirlwind of pre-wedding activities! Katy’s getting married TOMORROW!!! I’ve spent my week trying to prep for this weekend, and it’s finally here!!!

1. I did a whole other post on it, but I went to Sigma Alpha Omega’s National Convention last weekend, and it was wonderful. By the way, since it’s “out” now, I can say this: WE’RE HOSTING CONVENTION NEXT YEAR!!! I can’t wait for a celebration of our Savior and our sisterhood in the Classic City in 2013!

The Mu Chapter ladies at Convention!

2. Except for taking the test, I’ve officially finished one unit of my biology class! Woo hoo! I can’t wait until it’s over and I’ll never have to take a science class again. Yessss.

3. I had a rather eye-opening conversation with a good friend this week. Sometimes it takes another set of eyes to see what’s truly going on, and that’s exactly what happened. I’m so grateful that God blessed me with the friends I have now. I don’t know where I’d be without them.

4. THE CMT MUSIC AWARDS WERE ON LAST NIGHT!!! I watched them all the way through, including the red carpet show with Evan Farmer and Katie Cook. I of course tweeted the entire way through, and when it was all said and done I had sent about 70 tweets over the course of three hours. What can I say, country music and social media are two of my favorite things. When they get together, well, my tweeting just can’t be contained. OH, and speaking of Evan Farmer (he’s the host of CMT’s Top 20 Countdown), he tweeted me back today, which is really cool. I hope I’ll get to meet him sometime; he seems like a pretty cool dude.

So, this is the second time he’s replied when I tweeted something at him, which I think is awesome. How many celebrities do you know of who actually take the time to do that??? Can’t wait to read his book… it’s on its way from Amazon and should be here when I get back home on Sunday. Sweet!

5. Just to celebrate this weekend, here’s a lovely picture of the soon-to-be-happily-married couple, Nick and Katy. In a little over 24 hours from this post, Miss Katy K. will become Mrs. Katy May! Can I get an “AWWW??”

By the way, this was taken last July at the place where they’re getting married. Here we are almost a whole year later, and it’s all coming full circle!
