Today I am missing mom. I wish she could be here with me and hold me while I want to cry. It's been a really hard week without her.

This could possibly be my future home next summer. Stay tuned to find out! :)

I have a dream to have a room full of books when I get older. I have always loved reading. There is something about holding a book in your hand and flipping through the pages that is magical. I don’t know if it was creased pages, the smell of the pages, or the weight in my hands that made me first fall in love with books. I started reading when I was young because my parents said that if I was reading then I didn’t have to go to bed so early. The entertainment was free and gave me insightful knowledge into the world. As I have gotten older time to read has been scarce. With school and work my free time for books has been slim to none. I must admit how excited I am though for winter break. I am hoping that I can curl up on my bed with book in hand and cover bent back. I have been so lucky, in the past month I have bought 7 books for the low price of 10 dollars. It feels so good to add to my collection of books. I hope to be able to soon read the books I am collecting and to add them to my future library.

Amedee and Jodi

A few weekends ago my family got together in Vegas to celebrate my Dad marrying his love Jodi. It was so great to see family, and wonderful to meet Jodi’s daughters. I can’t believe that my Dad is married again. It makes me so happy that Jodi makes him so happy. In this life, finding the people that love you unconditionally is so critical. I am happy that they have found that kind of love.

This trip also reminded me how amazing my family is. I literally love my family to pieces! They are some of the most amazing people. I am so grateful that I have them in my life. My siblings are some of my best friends, and I can’t wait to get to know Jodi’s daughters and to make them apart of my life.

My Dad is my rock. He gives me so much strength and courage to conquer the world.

I can’t help but believe that Mom is so proud of all of us and the bond that we have. I am grateful for her presence in the little things that she brings to my life. I am so grateful that I got to wear her scarf to school today and that I can think of her daily.

I don’t think I could ask for anything more from my family. So, this goes out to you guys. Thanks for being the foundation of who I am and for continually supporting me throughout my life!

I'm Back!

Wow, I can't believe it is officially that time of year again! It's fall, which means that school, work, and crazy late nights are back on. Currently I am missing Mexico like crazy but it does feel good to be back to familiar territory. This semester is going to be the busiest I have ever had. Although I am excited for all that is ahead of me, I must admit I am not excited about the 7-10 page research paper that was already assigned to me after only two days of school. Thankfully, I have great roommate. I am rooming with Alicia again who is always full of surprises, and crazy Sara. She is always off doing something and I love it! She is such a fun social butterfly. I am so grateful for both of these wonderful ladies in my life. We are bound to have some great times this year. Plus, the trophy is back! If you don't know what the trophy is, check out pictures from facebook last year.
Pranks have officially begun. I found this guy in my shower yesterday. He scared the crap out of me. I thought my neighbor Jay was in my shower when I first got in. Let's just say he has showered with me the last two days, and I plan on being very good friends with him this year!
This year I moved into the boathouse. We live in the basement, but some of the coolest guys ever live upstairs. We like to spend our spare time watching chick flicks and quoting Hitch with them.

The house finally feels like home and I am loving it. Our walls are actually painted too! It makes a huge difference in the apartment. Instead of plain white walls we have a pretty light blue all over the apartment. It makes for a much more homey feel.

I am also bleslsed to have my own bathroom again this year. Although it can be a small squeeze from time to time, I love it. I even get a cute tiled counter top.
My room is called the Harry Potter room since it appears out of no where. Here is the entrance to my room. Who would have known that a stellar room behind this piece of wall. It's so much fun to have a giant sliding door.
I bought this lovely lady for only 20 dollars from the DI! It's lavender and goes perfect with my blue walls. It's plenty big and will be joining me in many future apartments to come.
I also got two new pairs of TOMS. The red ones came to me from my dear friend Audrey who got them in China for me over the summer. My fabulous sister bought me the other pair. I was having a really bad day and she said here is my credit card number, buy some TOMS to make yourself feel better. Isn't she just the best?
Like I said, I still can't believe that it's fall. I am officially praying and hoping that I can make it through this semester with my busy schedule. Keep checking back to find out about all of the adventures that we have this year. See you soon!
