decisions, decisions

I am super excited about Halloween this year. Growing up we did not celebrate Halloween, so I have never dressed up before. I know! Hard to believe, right? My college group at church is having their 2nd Annual Fall Fest this year and we get to dress up. YAY! I was in Chicago last year so I did not get the chance to participate and I would look at everyone's pics and be super jealous. I have been thinking about my costume for 3 months. I had narrowed the choices down to Princess Leia or Queen Amidala. I do not know what was with the Star Wars theme. But I think I have finally decided to be Princess Leia. I have long brown hair, so it seemed like a perfect fit. I cannot wait!

Are you doing anything fun for Halloween? Any fun costume ideas?

things change

Life is full of little changes. Some we do not even notice and others, well, are hard to accept. I am in the midst of one of those hard to accept changes right now. Change is a good thing. We all need change in our lives to keep us from becoming stagnant and to grow. But it is sort of like being forced to eat your veggies as a kid. You know they are good for you but they just do not taste as good as chocolate. My brain knows that what is happening is excellent, really! My heart on the other hand is just a little reluctant to deal with it. And in the bigger picture, it is not that big of a change at all. It is on the periphery of my life and does not really pertain to me at all. This time has been a wake-up call to me. It has helped me realize and appreciate the people who mean the most to me.

I hope everyone is having a great week. Sorry it has been so long since my last post. Grad school and work are slowly killing me.  Is it December yet?:)

college football...yay!

The only NFL I really watch is the Super Bowl. But I love college football, particularly...Florida State. Go Noles! Their first game is tonight against Miami. Hopefully we will crush them! I am spending this Labor Day catching up on school work and just being fairly lazy. I am grilling lemon pepper chicken and baking potates tonight for a few of my friends. I hope everyone is having a relaxing Labor Day! I cannot wait for fall weather!
