scenes from Aggieland

I am totally beside myself, I have lost 2 followers in the past few weeks. How depressing, I had 80 and was super excited for only being 20 away from 100. Now I'm back to being 22 away from the magic number, which might as well be 50. Am I the only loser who loses followers? 

oh well, their loss. 

I got a Nikon D3000 camera for Christmas and have yet to figure out what all the gadgets are. So I decided to drive around and practice taking pictures. Here are a few things I captured today, keep in mind that I'm a newbie. Any pointers from you pros would be appreciated.

back to school, back to school, to prove to Dad that I'm not a fool!

Today has been such a great day! Jimmy and I left home early and made it back to College Station safe and sound, and everyone has been in a helpful mood today..
I met with my adviser to talk about my schedule, turns out there were a lot of problems and she spent half an hour searching for open classes and moving things around, and even registered for the classes for me. She definitely went above and beyond, especially since I showed up unannounced. 

then I met with an adviser in another department to talk about some specific classes and she was also super helpful!

and then later I tried to register for a class at Richland which if you read this post  know what a pain in the ass that is. luckily though, another friendly stranger went out of her way to help me. She did research on A&Ms classes and made sure I got exactly what I needed.

So today, I am thankful for the three kind women who made my day stress free! unfortunately there was a limit to the helpfulness, I was on my own when I gave Oliver a bath, cleaned his ears and brushed his teeth.

Now, time to unpack and get settled in for a new semester, so far so good!

my main squeeze

When I was three I started pre-k at a day care. It was there that I met my first best friend and my first crush. 

cut to a few years later when my first best friend steals my first crush. scandalous, I know.

10+ years after the crushing blows of this childhood betrayal I was reunited with my first crush. and have been ever since. 

Jimmy and I "re-met" during my junior year of high school when we played on a mutual friend's softball team during a fundraiser tournament. I was "talking to" another boy and he had a girlfriend but from the moment I over-excitedly squealed "Jimmy Lee? you were my first crush!" it was history. A month later, both single, we started dating. 

That was four year ago

So much happens in four years, together we've shared adventures, weddings, trips, births, tears, laughter, graduations, dances, parties, a year of long distance, holidays, fights, hugs, calls, texts, and pictures. and I couldn't have been happier.

There really aren't words to do Jimmy justice. He is one of those few people who is good at everything, and knows everything and is loved by everyone. I truly feel sorry for those people who aren't lucky enough to experience his humor, charm, and intelligence, not to mention his good looks!

I could spend days writing about him but I will just leave you with some pictures of us through the past 4 years.  

I love you Jimmy, thanks for an amazing four years!

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

It's a Texas blizzard ya'll! (I have never actually said ya'll but I feel like it is appropriate now) And by blizzard I mean there is probably an inch on the ground. But it is magical all the same

Last year it snowed something like 12 inches here but I was away at school and missed it. Here are some pictures from last years snow, keep your fingers crossed that it happens again today.

And yes I know, a lot of you get snow regularly, but for Texas, this is huge!

hair envy

I am totally obsessed with Kyle Richards from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She is drop dead gorgeous and has the most lovely locks! One thing I really like about myself is my hair, its really healthy and grows unbelievably fast, but Kyle's hair is perfect. I have a hair appointment on Wednesday and I'm going to see what can be done so that mine can look more like this..

Here's to a great year

Sorry to report that I am still not motivated to get back into the habit of blogging. I think it is because my blog needs a makeover, and I don't feel like dealing with it. If anyone would like to help me figure out to create a header and button I'll love you forever.

But as for a quick little catch up.. so far 2011 has been the! The fam and Jimmy and I went to the casino last night and I played the penny slots for the first time, usually I only play the $1 wheel of fortune slot machine, only so I can get a spin. I found a new favorite game and won $420!! technically it was only about $350 because of what I put it but $420 sounds better. just go with it.

And today we all went to first monday in Canton and Mom and I found the prettiest scarves for $3! They were a steal.

I hope the past few days are a sign of good things to come. There is a lot happening this year and I'm really excited to see what 2011 has in store. I hope your new year has been as lucky as mine. I miss hearing about what you all have been up to, I should be back to catch up soon. Happy new year! Here's to a great year
