Well, I almost went an entire semester without getting sick. My sister had a cold over the weekend, and it looks like I caught it. Thankfully, my afternoon class was cancelled today, so I can go back to my dorm and sleep. I was up really late last night to register for my classes for the Spring semester. I got all the classes I need, but I am exhausted. I did have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and my cousin got engaged! We're all really excited about their wedding next year. I drove back to Albuquerque yesterday, so I have a car with me now, which is nice because I need to go buy some cold meds now. Hello, Nyquil. Hopefully this cold goes away soon. I would hate to still have it during finals.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi everyone! I'll keep this short and sweet. I'm at my aunt's house in Prescott, Az, enjoying time with family and time away from school. I went for  a run with my cousin this morning and am looking forward to a huge dinner tonight. We're taking this year off of Black Friday, thank goodness, and I am going to relax all weekend. Enjoy your family, enjoy whatever time off that you get and have a very happy holiday!

"I am a warrior princess. I am a daughter of the Most High God, and He has a personal interest in my life and a specific plan for me. With Him, I can not fail."

This was the theme of the conference I went to in Colorado Springs this last weekend. It was an amazing conference and I went with an amazing group of girls. I feel so renewed and so refreshed. We did some crazy stuff and had a blast, but we also learned some great lessons. It was the perfect girl's weekend.
We road tripped it to Colorado Springs on Friday... a little crazy at the Everyday Sunday concert that followed the message on Friday night...
...took a super awkward picture with the band after the concert...
...woke up early for day 2 of the conference...
...participated in an AWESOME concert with the amazing Barlow Girls (I love them. They are my new role models. So fantastic!)...
...and went on an awesome hike to a pretty waterfall Sunday morning before heading home.

This weekend was absolutely incredible and I am so blessed to have these lovely ladies in my life. God totally provides and takes care of His own.

College is an excellent teacher of that elusive virtue patience. Waiting for the weekend, waiting for time off, waiting waiting waiting. November is going to put the skills that I have learned over the last few months to the test. Next weekend, I get to go to a conference in Colorado Springs. Two weeks after that, I get to go to Arizona for Thanksgiving. At the end of the month, I get my car back. It's all a matter of being patient and trying not to go insane while I wait. Thankfully, I do have some things to keep me busy in between the big things. Tonight, I'm going to see my school's production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I am super excited. Do you have any big plans for the month of November? Anything that's hard to wait for? Things to keep you occupied? Have a great rest of the weekend guys!
