On My Mind | 3

Happy Monday friends!

I mentioned Friday, that I have been having trouble finding things to write about.  I figured that the best way was just to write about everything that was on my mind!  

1 - The picture above depicts something extremely fun and addictive!!  Hunting for nightcrawlers!  My family has recently been working on starting a worm farm, which is super funny in my mind.  They have been out almost every night hunting nightcrawlers, and they kept talking about how much fun it is.  So Saturday night, I went out with them to "hunt" worms!  lol  SO MUCH FUN!  It isn't easy!  You have to do it when it is dark outside.  Sometimes the worms immediately disappear the moment they see the light of your flashlight.  Sometimes it takes two hands to pull them out of there hole.  It involves so much bending over that you are super sore when you are done, but so addictive!  I honestly cannot wait to do it again next weekend!

2 - My fraternity CERES just welcomed in three new girls!  It has been a long five weeks of pledge, but I am excited to see these new girls come into our organization and start to make it their own!  Always exciting when you see growth in a group!

3 - Graduation is seven weeks away!  This is super exciting and scary for me.  I have been a student in school for the last 19 years, so I am not sure what I am going to do when I am not a student!  I don't know what to do, other than find a job!  I am hoping to find the "dream job" and move home with Joshua and start planning out and living our lives, but I am sure God has his own plan for us!  Joshua just keeps telling me to trust in the Lord, and everything will be fine, so that is what I am doing!

4 - As if it is not crazy enough that I am graduating, in 193 days, I am getting married too!!  That means that between then and now, I will have bridal showers, a bachelorette party, and a bridal portrait session!  Plus I still have to finish picking out my bridesmaid dresses!  Always something!

5 - This spring weather is making me so happy!!  I love being outside on a warm, sunny day!  I cannot wait until it is here for good, and all the trees around my apartment go into bloom!  That is what I am counting on!  I definitely and looking forward to taking down my St. Patrick's Day decorations and putting up my spring/Easter decorations!  I will be sure to show y'all when I do, because they are going to be cute!  At least they will be as soon as I make them!!

It is always fun to sit down and look at what all is going on in my life, even for me!  These post are quickly becoming some of my favorite to write!  I hope you are enjoying them as much as I am!

What is on your mind?
Like I said, let me know!



  1. Congrats on graduation so soon!!

    Thank you!! After seven years, it will be a blessing to be done with school!!

  3. Enjoy this time. It may seem scary, but it is the most free you will ever be. Make sure the two of you take a trip or two BEFORE you start your family. I love my kids. More than I can ever say. I love family vacations. But my husband and I blew off so many fun things thinking we could still do them "someday." Our last "someday" was in November of 2002 when our first was born. Our next "someday" will be in September of 2027 when our youngest leaves for college. Have fun TODAY!

  4. Congrats on graduation and the wedding! You have a lot going on. I was enjoying spring too for a week - now we have a fresh new blanket of snow and more on the way! Ah, Minnesota.

    Thank you so much for your encouraging words! I am super excited and scared but I know that as long as Joshua and I are going the same direction, and we are working together, everything will be fine. Joshua just has to keep reminding me that God is in control! I hope we wait a few years to have children because I definitely want to go on some adventures with my wonderful co-pilot and best friend! Thank you again for letting me know it will all be okay! :)

  6. Congrats on a big Summer, with graduation and marriage!

    Bless your heart! I hope snow is far behind us in North Carolina!! I like one good snowfall a year, and then I am ready for beach weather! :)
