Summer, Twilight, Showers, Africa, and Jean Shopping...

IT'S SUMMER!!!!!!

I am so glad! I have been enjoying doing nothing since Wednesday afternoon. I haven't blogged yet because I have just been enjoying my time. I've barely been on the computer.

Wednesday I unpacked all my stuff and moved back into my old room at home. HAHA! It's always nice coming home, and at the same time I reme
mber that my mom makes me make my bed everyday and keep my room clean (I know you read this mom... but it's not like you don't know how I feel about all that. ;-) ) .... soo... I got rid of some stuff.

I started packing for Africa. I have my large suitcase to be checked FULL of medical supplies to take to the clinic I am going to be working at. I am s
o excited that I can take all that stuff. Let me tell you a little something about myself... typically I am an OVERPACKER. I mean... Matt has literally gone through my suitcase and taken things out before. I have honeslty packed 15 t-shirts for a weekend trip before. A little excessive I know... but a girl never knows what she is going to want to wear at the time... or even getting dirty is always a problem for me. So anyways... me using my LARGE suitcase to check for something to take to someone else is kind of a special thing to me. I feel kind of proud of myself! haha!

I have started reading TWILIGHT as well. Here's the thing... I dont' read for pleasure. My mom would ALWAYS try to get me to read for pleasure ALL THE TIME when I was younger. I just wouldn't have it. I never really enjoyed it. I tried several times to be a "Reader" but it wasn't happening. Well... I also have always made fun of the people that are obsessed with Twilight. I never understood it... it was like Harry Potter to me.. or Lord of the Rings.. or even Star Wars-- just another one of those movies that people were crazy over that I was just not interested in. My friend Marybeth made me watch the Twilight movie probably a month ago when it first came out on DVD. I LOVED IT!!! I watched it twice in on
e weekend! So I have been waiting for the semester to be over so that I could read the books because I want to know what happens next for goodness sakes!!!! Already the book is so good!

I have also been trying to plan my cousin Audrey's bridal shower that is the weekend after I get back from Africa. I am her maid of honor. I love planning weddings and showers. Being maid of honor is a lot of work. I like it a lot though. It's fun work. :-)

Today I took my brother to the airport. I took Matt's sister, M
eredith, with me so that we could go shopping at Delia's after we dropped him off. I HATE JEAN'S SHOPPING!!! UGGGHH!!!! Seriously. I always feel so disgusted with myself. I am so frustrated that I quit working out. I was doing so good at the beginning of this past semester. After I got sick a month ago I have been such a fat slacker. I have been stress eating like it's my JOB! ugh.... I wish that when I was stressed I didn't feel like eating. I would be so thin!!! I want to be satisfied with who I am though. I was talking to Meredith about this at the mall today. I told her I don't want to be one of those crazy girls obsessed with being too thin... I just want to be satisfied with who I am... and be myself.

Anyways... I'm going to go read some more Twilight until I go to sleep.

Hope all is well!!!

I'll leave you with a few random recent pictures I uploaded from my mom's camera today....
How adorable is my niece Kadence??! I cannot believe how big she is. I love this picture of her!! It makes me smile inside. :-)
Easter weekend.... I have no idea what I'm eating but probably something I shouldn't be eating.... lol
