Last weekend at home.

It is my last weekend at home before I move back to school tomorrow morning. Its about twelve hours until I leave my home, family, and pets behind for a fun filled, second year at college. I am beyond stoked, but I will probably get homesick fairly quickly.

Friday, I had the day off of work. What? She took a day off? Yep. For my sanity. I went to Olive Garden with my grandma, and we had a great time catching up and just chit-chatting. I love her dearly, and I will miss seeing her at church and whenever we hang out.

My cousin's artwork, and my grandma. (She turns 75 on Tuesday)
My mom and I also drove down to my Aunt's house to decorate secret stuff for my cousin Sarah's baby shower in just 3 short weeks. We had a blast making a bunch of cute stuff, and I got to catch up with my family and friends that live down there. 

Saturday, Mom and I went to the Cubs vs. Rockies baseball game. It was alot of fun. We usually make it a habit to go every year to see a game. I had my camera with me, and I got some great shots too. Although, the Cubs didn't win. 

His bat broke!

Momma and me.


Today, I went to church! I was so happy to go to church on my last day in Waukegan. I haven't been able to go to church in a while because of work. I also packed today. Nothing like waiting till the last minute. I got a futon matress from my awesome and amazing youth director Kari. She is so awesome, and I am so grateful for her! I finally finished packing about an hour ago, and mom and I loaded her SUV. 

I can't wait to get back down to campus, and unload all my stuff. I am so excited to see everyone again, and I am dreading class. Good bye for now.

Horrible tragedy.

I read about a family tragedy while on vacation. A family of seven was on vaca and the mother passed away. I donated to help this family out. Hopefully you can too. You can read it for yourself here:


All ready or Already?

Am I all ready to go back? Cause it's already time to go back?

I haven't even begun packing. Good thing I have about ten days to do so. It will be a very busy and quick 10 days. I have work, get togethers, party's, packing, going to a Cubs game, and so much more before I make the 62 mile drive back to campus! I am excited and stressed.

I really need to write a long post cause these short ones aren't cutting it, but I am trying to pack something before I leave for work in one hour! Hasta Luego!

3 weeks...

3 weeks until...
I pack all my belongings, well most of them, and take the hour or so drive back to college!!! I am beyond excited to see all of my lovely friends again. I think the only problem I am going to have is figuring out how to get the futon apart to put in my mom' suv. I so stoked to get back on campus, and give all of my friends a giant hug and never let go. I'm not as excited for classes because I am taking 7 classes! (Music Lit, Nutrition, PE-ish, Stats, Anatomy, Med Terminology, and Nursing Concepts) I am really excited to have time to relax since my summer was filled with non-stop working. I hope everyone's summer is winding down well. I need to end this post soon so I can get to cleaning and then off to work again.
