Balloon Festival.. and other random stuff lol

This past Saturday me, my mom, dad, sister, nephew and Ryan(boyfriend) went to the Balloon Festival in Plano! It was fun! We got there around 5pm to see them launch the balloons but due to wind they weren't able to :(. Instead they did the "glow" which is where all the balloons light up. It was REALLY pretty! There are pictures but they don't do it justice. After the glow they shot off fireworks. Considering that they "scaled back" on the fireworks I was really impressed! It was really fun to just hang out and relax for an evening!

Oh, a cold front moved through here a few days ago! IT RAINED! AMAZEBALLS (something my mom and I started saying after we heard Giuliana Rancic say it lol). Anywho, I, of course, took a picture of the rain too just in case I forget what it looks like in the future.

So, since we got a wonderful "cold" front(which just means it is now in the upper 80's or lower 90's instead of 110+, but hey we'll take what we can get), I am having a bit of a flare up. Thankfully it isn't too bad. I've been pretty stiff the past few days and achy but it hasn't been horrible. I am sick with an upper respiratory infection though so that totally sucks. I woke up this morning with a 101 fever, assuming the thermometer was correct. We had to take my temp. three times because according the the first thermometer we used I should have been dead for a few hours and I assure you I was not but it was adamant about my being dead. 

Well, that's my Southern Soapbox for the day! I'm going to go take a nap :). Have a good one!

The love of my life

So, I'm in a mushy mood lol. Bare with me on this post.

I am so lucky to have Ryan in my life. He is funny, respectful, sarcastic, mature but not too mature. He isn't "the sweetest more romantic guy" in the world, but it works for us. As much as I say I would like the cheesy cliche romantic moments, that would get old after a while, and who wants a cliche relationship? I can guarantee you not many people have the relationship I have with Ryan. His idea of romance is tickling my arm while we lay on the couch and watch a show that he doesn't even like. He is ALWAYS honest with me, even if it's not what I want to hear. He doesn't give me everything I want just because I ask for it, he has no problem saying no, and I like that. I mean, at the time that he says no, I don't like it but in the grand scheme of things, I like that he says no to me. It works for us. I love our weird little relationship and can't wait to be his wife :).

Okay moving on. So I have succumb to the peer pressure and joined Twitter. I'm not really sure why. I just have a few people that I want to follow and that's really all. I don't totally understand Twitter lol. We shall see!

I have been staying busy with school. I have my first test for the semester on Wednesday in my communications class. I also have a test in Government and History on Friday. I think I am pretty well prepared so I'm not too worried about it. I am really excited about a new club I joined. Real Option On Campus. It is a christian pro life club that helps council and educate people about abortion. I am really excited to start helping out!

New picture of AJ :)
I was babysitting him and we were chilling out on the couch watching Charmed lol. He is getting so big :(. He's almost 9 months old! And he's trying to walk!!!!!!

Ok y'all, that's my Southern Soapbox of the day! Have a good night(or morning in my case lol). I'm going to have breakfast with my love in the morning!

Cooling down!

Finally we are getting out of the 100 degree weather! I'm so thankful for the "cooler" weather. Isn't it sad that I'm excited about upper 90's? I think it is lol.

It has been so busy since I have started school! I have finished two weeks and have 14 left! I like all my classes, for the most part. The professors are funny and make everything interesting, and actually make me WANT to go. I am actually interested in most everything the talk about, AMAZING! Lol. I am trying really hard not to miss class unless I have to. Yesterday I had TERRIBLE cramps. It was horrible but I survived so YAY :).

Last Wednesday Ryan had his wisdom teeth out. It was very interesting lol. He had the hiccups on the way home and his mouth was still numb. He wasn't loopy though which was disappointing to us both. I was greatly looking forward to making fun of him, and I guess he was looking forward to being made fun of? I don't know.

Anywho, Ryan, Maegan, Andrew and AJ are coming over for an "experimental meal night". We are making new dishes and are going to try them out. Hopefully it doesn't suck, otherwise we'll be in a heap of trouble lol.

Well, that's my Southern Soapbox. Have a wonderful Sunday and a Happy Labor Day!
