Beginning of the End

As I sit here trying to calm my brain of all the activity going on in it I thought I would write a little blog post to clear my mind. Tomorrow is the beginning of the end. The beginning of the last semester I will be at OC. The beginning of student teaching, Gamma, and Spring Sing. Today it hit me that everyone use to say "Oh you are doing ALL those things??" And I would reply "Yeah but its no big deal because next semester will be the hardest..." Oh look, tomorrow is the "next semester!!!!!" Whoa! Time sure does go by fast. But to be honest I am ready for it. I am anxiously awaiting what this semester holds. I am ready for two Spring Sing meetings tomorrow, Rush this week, plus wedding things that pop up from time to time! If I can get past this week then we are clear for take off. The funny thing is that I'll sit here and think of things I should be doing, then I'll try to sleep and my mind goes there again, and all this time I have done everything I need to do, but I feel like I should be doing something! I guess that is a good problem to have rather than being behind. I would like for you guys to pray for me. I know that God is watching over me this semester and I can already feel the prayers of people. There is nothing like the power of prayer, and I will need it this semester!

On another note, Break was fantastic! I wish I could do it all over again. I don't want it to end!!!! But Brock and I are taking the positive and saying "now that it is the semester it is that much closer to the wedding!" People, it is less than 4 months now! CRAZY! We were registering in Dillards the other day and went to the furniture section and found ourselves in the bed and mattress section. We tried different types of mattresses to see what we liked the best and it hit me. Oh my goodness I'm gonna be living with this man so soon! I seriously can't wait. Its just those funny realizations that you might think "shouldn't she have already realized that..." But sometimes things just like to hit you in different times. We also tried Queen vs. King. Now, many of you have told us get the King and you won't regret it! Well, we were thinking that originally, until we tried it. For one, a King is huge and I feel like I am across the canyon from him. I know we aren't gonna want to cuddle the whole night but still, I feel like I am lost! So I think we are going for a Queen first. We don't know where we are going to live, and it could be an apartment so we don't want the bed to take up the whole room. I mean my parents have always slept on a Queen, so I think we can too. Thoughts?

Well here we go folks! this is where the blog posts are gonna get crazy so be sure to tune in!


  1. We have a queen and it's perfect! Everyone always says you will be cramped, but we have no problems. And I know what you mean about a King making you feel like you are a mile apart. When we went to Branson over Thanksgiving we slept on a King bed and you literally could have fit another person between us. It was weird. Go with a queen, it's cheaper and cozier.

  2. Well my parents gave us the advice to go with a queen cause then you're kids wouldn't sleep with I know that's not true, but I'd still go with a queen, plus it's nice to spoil yourselves with a king when you stay in a hotel....every once and a while the extra space is nice.

  3. We started out on a full size and we've had a queen since we've had kids. Great size and yes, you can fit 3 kids between you...just not comfortably. Enjoy this time!! I feel like I was JUST in your shoes: getting married, student teaching, involved in college goes by so fast!
