Nuevo Boton y Nuevo....bloggybackground....

yo no habla espanol.

but I sure do like to try!

Anyway, I realized this semester how much I love goofing around in the Adobe Suite! My visual media homework was my favorite and even though I can tell that I have a long way to go, I am really enjoying this! Trent's old typography teacher saw a wedding invite I just said and told me, "you could do this, really, you could put yourself through law school with this!"

Yes I am tootin' my own horn. It's just something I never thought I would be any kinds of good at.

Well sirs, here is my new button, grab it a love it!

And seriously, what do you guys think of the new look? I look at so many of your blogs and I see the talent surrounding me, I want some constructive criticism!

Thank you so much friends and family for your support. I've never been one to hide my emotions, I feel that's more detrimental than helpful, and I have always found so much kindness and love when I am honest with my feelings to others and to myself. I seriously love ya'll!
The last week of school is underway and I am taking a 30 minute mind break. 
It's always a little rough these last 2 weeks, there's hardly any sleep, hardly any shower time, hardly any kanoodlin time, just no times! How do you not look like a middle aged trucker lady when you haven't slept for more than 8 hrs in 3 days? These are my must haves for these stressful weeks.
Dark, sturdy nail polish. It hides the dirt and unkempt cuticles and lasts a long time.

Hair powder to soak up 4 day's worth of hair oil

Radiohead to calm me down and help me concentrate

Eye Flash to brighten the crackhead circles under my eyes

Plenty of water to keep my skin from looking like a zombie's

Son of a Preacher Man

Trent and I have been slaving over our websites and whilst slaving Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man" came on my Beatle's station, (Pandora).
I started busting up and Trent looked over and asked why.
"Cause this song reminds me of you!"
He looked a little confused.

Well the back story is that when Trent and I met I wasn't active in the church. 

After we met I decided for this boy, I would give the church another shot.

Friends and family couldn't convince me to come back, but the son of a preacher man could! 
(His dad was Bishop at the time!)

So here you go, the theme song to my re-activation!

uh-oh...another depressing one...grab your hankies

It's that time again, finals week. DUN DUN DUN! It's 2 a.m. and I will not be done for another couple hours. But its all okay!

I don't know why but I have really been missing my family lately. Maybe it's because my parents are having such a hard time right now and all I want is for my family to be close together. My brother's & sisters, brother & sister's in-law, aunts, uncles, cousins. I dunno, I just need a big family hug. I feel a major tie to not only my immediate family but also my extended family. I love all of my nieces and nephews like crazy even though I don't get to see them very often and I have the most amazing in-laws. I am so lucky to have older siblings who love me and look out for me and I always want them to think I'm super cool. ;)
There's just a lot going on right now that I'm worried about. Finals, family, health, the future. It's all kind of piling on me. I just worry all the time that everyone is happy!

Well, everything will be okay. Whether they like it or not my family is stuck w/ me forever so they all HAVE to love me. Yup. In low times I like to listen to this song:

Abide with me; 'tis eventide.
The day is past and gone;
The shadows of the evening fall;
The night is coming on.
Within my heart a welcome guest,
Within my home abide.

O Savior, stay this night with me;
Behold, 'tis eventide.
O Savior, stay this night with me;
Behold, 'tis eventide.

Abide with me; 'tis eventide.
Thy walk today with me

Has made my heart within me burn,
As I communed with thee.
Thy earnest words have filled my soul
And kept me near thy side.

Abide with me; 'tis eventide,
And lone will be the night
If I cannot commune with thee
Nor find in thee my light.
The darkness of the world, I fear,
Would in my home abide.

I know it'll all work out, it just sucks in the mean time.
