I have been informed that I need to blog. My apologies.
January has FLOWN by. School kicked off with a bang, and I've left Auburn the last three weekends in a row. I can already tell it's going to be a very, very busy semester (but hopefully very, very fun!). Here is my month in a few pictures.
MLK weekend, I went with my dear friends Mike and Katherine Motta and their youth group to the Strength to Stand conference in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The worship leader for our venue, Matt Papa, had a very "Christian" piano.
I will never understand why people think that wearing tshirts that say "Ninjas for Jesus" is a good idea. You look like a freak. It's embarrassing.
I stumbled upon red velvet coffee while perusing the outlets in Pigeon Forge. HOLY SMOKES get in my tummy.
I bought this cute little travel kit at the brand, spanking new Family Dollar that's only 0.4 miles from my apartment. I needed a new travel toothbrush.
A mystery sock. I found this straggler in my clean clothes straight out of the dryer; Alex and Liz had to do some extreme detective work to determine who was the true owner of the stowaway.
This past weekend I helped with DNow at Shades. I genuinely can't figure out what a tape ministry is. I'm guessing it's probably audio recordings, but for such a tech-savvy place it seems like (video)cassettes (tapes-film-whatever) would be a little out of date. Maybe it should be renamed the Flashdrive Ministry. Or the Digital Ministry. Or better yet just steer away from the device and call it the Recording Ministry. In my head, I can just see adults teaching children how to appropriately make masking tape figurines. Okay, I'm getting carried away (and a little sacreligious). Sorry.
Cuties. My wonderful group of senior girls at DNow introduced me to Cuties. "Cuties are made for kids." They're easy to peel and yummy to eat. Win!
Loved catching up with my sweet friends.
I got an insanely small amount of sleep the weekend of DNow. In the picture below, I'd been awake for 4+ hours, and my eyes still don't look fully open. Thankfully Sunday night I clocked in 11.5 hours of glorious shut-eye.
The ironing board has found its new home in my room in Birmingham. Not sure how I feel about this or what type of message Mama is trying to tell me.
Self-timer alert! On my way back to Auburn, I stopped by Dadeville to see my grandparents. I broke out my camera to document our time together. I don't do that enough.
Grammy has been working on a hand-stitched quilt for me for a long time, and I finally got to see it. So pretty!
Finally, today is my other roommate's, Liz's, birthday. She's really not that many candles old, but I thought the image was funny.
That's all folks.
