Circle of Friends

I know, I know...where have I been? Getting into the groove of things of course! I have so much to catch my faithful readers up on, that I truly don't know where to start. I will try my best to remember everything since my last post, but I know I'll be unsuccessful.

So, I can finally call Houston home. I love my neighborhood...there's a Barnes and Noble right down the street, and all of these cute little shops and restaurants, I love all that the city has to offer, and I LOVE my new gig with Junior League! It's a blast! Our Holiday Market is coming up, and I couldn't be more excited! Holiday Market is where we have hundreds of vendors selling all kinds of gifts for the Holidays. It's my birthday weekend, and since I am a Provisional, I'm pretty much a slave to the market, and will be working 3 shifts in two days...I won't really get to celebrate, but I will definitely do something the next's the BIG 2-8!!

Next on the agenda is the Janet Jackson concert I attended this week! AMAZING! I love concerts! I love the music resonating through your entire body, and the feeling you get when you belt out your fave tunes along with 1000s of others! OH! and what about the would have thought I was on stage with was great! I'm so glad I got a chance to go FOR FREE...thanks Missy..what a treat!

OH!!! I almost forgot...HOMECOMING 2008!!! Seriously, I am SO SUPER excited, I don't know what to do with myself. OK OK--so what can I was one of the best times of my life. I met some wonderful people, and with the good and the bad, grew into the woman that I am today. The bon fire, the parade, the game, and Sherman's Alumni gathering...I can't wait, did I already say that?! So many people I get to see that I haven't seen in YEARS! Woohoo! I'm sure I'll be sad when the weekend comes to a close, but can I just say that at least I will be one of the people LEAVING Waco, and not staying this year...thank goodness!

TODAY - I had dinner with two great friends from college! They live in Houston, and we all finally had a chance to catch up. I was so excited because these girls and I really had some good times together in college. They totally helped me grow and mature in Christ, and had NO PROBLEM yanking me back to reality, and helping me keep my priorities straight. Because of them, I never had to find my own way, because they were already there. The true picture of iron sharpening iron...I looked up to these girls, prayed with them, had discipleship with them, laughed, get the picture..we had a lot of fun! Trust me, they caused me to stretch in more ways than I ever thought I could, and taught me that instead of getting offended, dig deep to find the reason why you are might find some truth there!

Well, that's all for now, and next time, I'll have some pics to post from Homecoming, and Danni's's election day this don't forget to vote...!
