Is it too early for a Christmas list??

Because I have one!

So I thought I was perfectly content with my camera, until Mrs. BeginningAgain got one that I am SO jealous of! I'm sure it will be eons before anyone wants to buy me a new camera, so if any of you are willing to drop some mula, you can spend it on me!

Something else that is on my wish list is the Sony Digital Reader Book. This baby has me drooling! I love love love to read, but I must admit, carrying the twilight series books around for two weeks was awkard and they were heavy. Which is why I need one of these bad boys:

This thing will hold up to 350 books...I think that could keep me satisfied for quite some time! I am pretty sure once you buy it too, you don't have to buy the E-books because you can download them for free from Google! (Don't quote me on it but this is my understanding). I really really really want one. Someone can buy this for me too! I'm gonna go pout over the things I want that I can't have. I will quote my Dad in closing, "Women are temporarily pleased, never satisfied"...I'll admit, this is TOTALLY me!

Yay for Memorial Day!

Today we are leaving for Cape San Blas for our annual neighborhood camping trip, redneck eh?? One of the most fun parts of the trip is the big fish fry we do one afternoon/evening that EVERYONE that is camping attends, plus some that come from out of town just to join in the festivites. I really look forward to these trips because it is just a bunch of fun with people of all ages. This year, we have a head count of 32 people! AND, I got a new bike two weeks ago, so I am super stoked to be able to ride and ride and ride...I even bought a big butt seat from Wally World so I would be extra comfy;) I sure do hope that in the future David and I continue to go on these trips because not only is it great time to spend with family and friends, it's a tradition! I can't wait to go and have our own little site with youngins of our own running around...how fun! Oh and also David's parents go on vacay there too but they are staying in a condo close by (city folk;) AND, Kim and Josh are gonna be staying with them so I'll get to see me some Kimbo! I hate not having her here in town anymore:( So looking forward to a fun-filled weekend, lets just hope the weather is somewhat kind to us. I don't need it to be perfect, but it would be nice if it wasn't monsooning all weekend, in which case I have my rainboots packed if needed;) So hope everyone else has a great weekend and take a sec to remember why we have a holiday in the first place, thank you to those who have fought and died for our country...God bless:)

Which makes me think of our trip to Washington DC for my cousins wedding, while we were there we visited Arlington National Cemetery...sure was breathtaking...here's some old pics, but worth looking at again!

And found this one too while I was hunting, always makes me laugh...Big Momma using the White House sprinklers to get a drink on a hot day...gotta love her:-D

It's official- 1 semester left!

Yay! I passed all of my classes this semester! My grades being A,B+,C+. It's sad that I'm so thrilled with a C, but you know what they say, "C's get degrees!". So I officially only have one semester left of college. I am pretty excited. This summer is going to be tough, but I am vowing to stay on top of things and not have to be so worried come finals week. I don't know what it is but I always make myself a pact and then somehow weasle my way out of it or get behind and then I am scrambling at the end. So I have to keep at it so that it will pay off in the end! If I can bring my GPA up to a 3.5 (3.15 now) then I can graduate with Cum Laude. I don't know if that's possible just because I don't know if even three A's would make it jump that high, and I don't want to do the math, but that's my goal! It's just so surreal that the end is finally in sight...what a great feeling:) I will actually be applying for summer graduation on May 11th, holy cow that's in 5 days! whoo hoo! i would LOVE LOVE LOVE for all my lovely ladies to be at graduation, but 1)I wouldn't torture ya'll by having to sit through it and 2) only 5 graduation tickets being offered doesn't leave any for anyone but my GMa, Fam, and David:( So I know I am jumping the gun on talking about graduation already, but I can't help it, I'm finally excited! Here's a pic of our awesome Biology building. I think I am liking school again now that i know the end is near!

Anywho, this is my week off in between classes and I am anxious about starting a new semester. AND bright futures doesn't cover summer classes so my parents ARE NOT TOO HAPPY about the $1900 tuition that comes with only THREE classes. Seems like a rip off huh? I am just so lucky that they roll their eyes (well my mom anyways), and says we'll do whatever we need to do. I could very easily be told to figure it out myself...so I am SO thankful for them and their willingness to keep paying for my mistakes (i.e. dropping classes and losing that money).

Oh and by the way, my Dad got a new truck! Well new to him anyways. He SO deserves it and I am so excited for him. I absolutely love it. It's a big man's truck and is fully loaded. I'm talking a sunroof and a flip down dvd player, what?! Not that he cares about any of that, just that it's 4x4 and some specific engine size, but I must say I am enjoying the plusses;) This is EXACTLY what it looks like as far as color and body and year, but his has a higher lift and bigger tires so it looks a lot different in that aspect. I don't have a real pic of it on my camera yet. You feel like the king of the road when you drive it!
Okay, sorry for the long post but I had making up to do!
