It's 4 am and I'm wide awake. Blame it on the night shift life, but insomnia is raging full force. Which I suppose is a blessing in disguise--gives me a little time to actually show the blog a little love. You know the usual song and dance..."work and school and life and blah blah blah have kept me so busy..." but really. Story of my life.
I'm off work today and am going to try to cling to my sanity and see the sunlight, work out without being in a rush, and actually lay eyes on some of my friends. Being social always recharges my batteries after being drained a little by work nights and busting my rear to try to get into the swing of grad school. Humph, life. I need a vacation.
Here's a little bit of a life update through Instagram, just to prove I'm still alive and well.
I've been reading through Ephesians and I'm really loving Ephesians 3:14-21...it's been popping up randomly in devotionals and in cards, and I love to keep reading it! It's such an incredible testament of His love for us.
This past Friday, we went to Starkville (our rival university's town, for those of you who don't live in the South) to celebrate Andrew's BFF's birthday! I really love Andrew's group of friends from home, so I'm always excited to see them.
Molly, me, and Rebecca--two of my favorite girls in the whole world!
One of the best things about going to Starkville--getting to hang out with my Kelsie!
Somehow I didn't get a picture of the birthday boy or his sweet girlfriend...didn't even get a picture with Andrew. Humph.
Saturday night, one of our precious friends from high school got married! So we went to celebrate with her and her new hubby...
Kelsie, Mrs. Wells, and me
The happy couple dancing their first dance :)
Kelsie's mom, Vicki, Kelsie and me...my second family
Photobooth fun...you know how I love photobooths
Sunday night was taco night...our house is finally almost perfectly put together, so we had a few friends over to enjoy some dinner with us!
And this is what we do for fun on Sundays...play with a camera app on my phone.
Had to post this picture because it cracks me up.
Something else I've been doing a lot of lately...reading and studying.
This is my "Finance in Healthcare" book--also known as "A Nurse Attempting to Read Chinese." Send me some prayers :)
Last night, we had Dierks Bentley in the Grove. It surprisingly wasn't too hot, just super crowded. I felt so old with all the little freshman running around--oh, and when we were in college, our wardrobe was Nike shorts and sorority tank tops...now, it's apparently high-waisted, cut-off jean shorts with midriff tops. One trend that I won't be getting on board with...
Can you tell how excited we were to see Dierks!?
My mother came up for the concert--she's Dierks' biggest fan. I was so happy to get to see her though!!
Pardon the big, white leg...
Mr. Bentley himself...I'm not a huge country fan, but I will say he isn't too bad to look at in his white t-shirt and tight jeans!
Well, I'm going to attempt to doze off for a few before the day gets started. I'm going to lunch with two of my favorites and then going to see a play tonight with Rebecca. Good day! Hope you all have a lovely day...I seriously MUST get caught up on your blogs. Miss my people!
Happy Thursday to you!
