Ok, so I was just reading everyone's blogs and I started thinking about something really RANDOM. Ok are ya'll ready. Matt and I are planning on going to the Auburn vs. State game in September with Christian and Brooke Preus. Well there is a slight problem, since Auburn is great in football there seem to be no hotel rooms except at this place where you pay at the drive thru window. HUMMMM!!!! I really don't know about that. Those of you who know me well, know that I don't do well at dirty places, I have to admit, I am kinda snob about places like that. I told Matt that I just don't think I can stay at a place where i pay for my hotel room at the drive-thur window. (I am pretty sure that Brooke is not going to like that either). So Matt's cousin, George said that he had it all taken care of. We were thinking a hotel room where you actually check in at the front destk. NO. he is a junior at AU and has the cutest girlfriend Holly. Well she has offered her apt. which is 3 bedroom and 3 bath and she said that she and her roommates would bunk in one room and we would stay in the other two rooms. They are only going to charge us $200.o0 total. I don't know why that sounds funny to me, but it does. I guess we are going to take our coolers and go to the Frat parties too. I have keep saying that I wish I could go back to college. I guess Matt and I will for a weekend and shack up in some sort of random girls apartments. Something funny to tell our kids one day.
This past week we celebrated my birthday (April 20th). Matt's parents, brother, uncle and grandmother went to eat with us and then we came back to our house to eat cake and ice cream. I really love celebrating birthday's mainly because my favorite dessert is birthday cake and ice cream. Matt got my favorite cake (FoodMax in Starkville, they really have the best cakes ever) and we had a really good time. Blowing out three candles, not really quite sure what the significance of three candles is, but that is all that Matt put on the cake. If you are wondering why the cake is half gone is because Jake, Matt's cousin came to eat dinner with us the last night and through conversation told us that his birthday was on Monday. Well Matt and I busted out my half eaten cake my parents gave me and put candles on it and sang Happy Birthday to him. I think that we kinda embarrassed him, but it was funny and the cake was once again AWESOME. Jake blowing out the candles. opening gifts.
Well, it is almost over. I took my final exam in nursing school yesterday and I passed the class. WOO HOO!!! When I first started school I told some of my classmates that all I wanted was for my picture to be on the wall. I said it in a joking manner, but really was more serious than they thought. Well here it is, my composite picture and guess what, it is going to hang on the walls of the MUW nursing school. I can't believe that school is almost over, I can honestly say I don't know if I would go through this again. (Those of you who have been through this understand). The first day of school when I started, a girl who was a year ahead of me told us that if we did not have a higher power then we needed to find one. That was so true, because I don't know if I could have made it through it without God and all of my friends and families prayers. Thanks everyone for your prayers, he definitely heard them.
Kendell's senior prom was tonight. I went with my mom to take pictures and to watch the senior slide show. It seems like just yesterday my mom and dad brought her home from the hospital ( I am 9 years older than her). It really seems like just yesterday that I was going to my senior prom and it will have been 10 years next year. CRAZY. I hate getting older. She looked really pretty and she and her date have so much fun together. I am going to miss her so much next year when she goes to Delta State. Kendell we Love You. Kendell and Stirling Being stupid Me and my baby baby sister. Mom, Kendell, Dad and me. (We miss you Caroline).
Look at Matt and the poor little turkey. Yes this is the bird that he gets up every morning at 5:00 am to go and hunt. Everyone says that we should get a hobby and do something together. I will have to say as long as every hobby that Matt has requires him to get up before the rooster crows will not be a hobby of Emily's. He told me the other day that I needed to find a hobby, and I told him I had one, it was called SLEEP. No I really am proud that he killed this thing because he actually took a morning off today. I will keep telling myself that it was because he wanted to engage himself in my hobby with me and sleep in, but I really think that it was because it was raining.
