New Years Road Trip


I hope everyone had a wonderful day-after-Christmas...
In just two short days, me and 3 of my dearest friends will be making our way up to CT.
This will be a 8 hour road trip (longest for me since I'm the farthest South).  
I've never been on a road trip this long, especially with friends.  There will surely be lots of music, laughter, and food.  Can't wait for my first real road trip! :)

Goodbye Christmas


Christmas is over.
Can you believe it?
Man, it always flies by so quickly!
I hope everybody has had a blessed Christmas filled with lots of love and laughter with family and friends!
So thankful for my amazing family.
I really need to hit the hay, but that bottle of coke was probably not my brightest idea...
Hopefully the sandman will follow in Santa's footsteps tonight.

How was everybody's Christmas?

Merry Christmas!

Even though it's Christmas break, I still am busy with things to do.  Our family had a wonderful Christmas!  My grandparents from NC came up and we just got back from our aunt, uncle, and cousins house.  So much food and laughter!  I'm gonna to start the 5 for Five posts, because I always seem to get things done quicker (or actually get them done at all) if I make a list, especially if I post that list for all to see ;)


1) Buy a wedding gift for my friends wedding in CT on Sunday.  SO excited for the road trip with some of my favorite ladies as well!  It's gonna be an awesome weekend!  Expect a picture heavy post mid-week next week for this event!
2) Finish reading Hunger Games then go buy Mockingjay.  This is definitely not something that needs to be done, but I really want to do it, so I'm putting it on this list anyway because it is pretty important to me right now ;)
3) Order my books for next semester online.  My mom is being so generous and paying for them for me!  Such a huge weight lifted off my shoulders!
4) Go to the gym before I leave on Friday!
5) Clean the mess that is my room...

I hope you all had a blessed Christmas!  
I will hopefully also be posting one more post before this weekend, and after I get back and the New Year starts my posts will be much more regular because I will actually have a schedule again.  Wahoo!

Carytown Adventures


Today I went to Carytown with my dear friend, Em.
We ate yummy salads with roasted tomatoes and goat cheese at New York Deli.
I tried Moshi for the first time.  It was very interesting...
I got a vintage RVA postcard to hang in my room at school.
I got an RVA T-shirt.
We marveled at the books in Chop Suey.
I left B-sides without the ugly sweater I desperately wanted (that took major self control).
We ate yummy truffles from For the Love of Chocolate.
I got a pumpkin chocolate chip cupcake from Carytown Cupcakes and showed Em the proper way to eat a cupcake.  
I got very depressed that Dixie Donuts and the Yarn Lounge were closed.
And, we had loads of fun.  
This girl is great and I cherish her friendship.


Fall Semester 2012


Some of my favorite memories from this past semester with some of my favorite people in the world.  I am beyond blessed to have such amazing friends.  I love every single one of them.

Christmas List



All I want for Christmas is an Asian baby.  Is that really too much to ask?

Christmas Tree



My sister made this Christmas tree out of her books. Pretty legit. 

I want to make a Christmas tree like this so bad.  



Two things.  

A reminder for the weekend.  


The big announcement... :)

1) A reminder of truth:

"Be to me a rock of refuge,
to which I may continually come;
you have given the command to save me,   
for you are my rock and my fortress.
Psalm 71:3

This verse is so comforting.  The Lord is the one constant in our lives that is always there and never-changing.  Friends, please remember this as this can be a hard time of the semester with all the stresses of finals, along with the many changes that are about to take place in so many people's everyday lives.  He is ALWAYS there.  He is unchanging!  He is our rock and fortress... He is our safety.  The worries of today shouldn't have a place in our hearts anymore, because they are in His hands.  So let them go.  He's got this.

2)  The announcement you've all been waiting for (drum roll please!!)

My best friend is engaged!!!!!  

Yayy, congratulations Rachel and Nathan!!!  Bridesmaid numero two dress, coming soon :)

Such a beautiful godly couple, that I am privileged to know and see grow in their relationship with the Lord and each other.  

Love them both.  

Our King


“The LORD is our king; it is he who will save us.” Isaiah 33:22

A great reminder today.

Happy Wednesday.

Five more days till the end of the semester for me!

Cravings and Procrastination


This the the blog post where I wish I were drinking Boba tea.


It is also the blog post that is the last form of procrastination from my commentary that I should be working on.  Don't worry, I have four pages... out of thirty.

And if you read this and brought me Boba Tea or brought me to get some, you would be my best friend forever.  Very unlikely though since it is 8:30 in Lynchburg on a Monday night.

Okay, enough this procrastination.

Have a wonderful Monday night everybody!  Last day of class tomorrow then finals.  I am going to go crush this commentary now.

再見 (That is goodbye in Chinese, since I'm craving Boba Tea).
