This weekend me and my favorite sorority sisters made a little roadtrip to Memphis to run in the Race for the Cure. I'm not a runner...don't let the 5k fool you! But I trained a little (yes trained for a 5k) and the Lord gave me the strength to finish! YAY! It was such a fun experience running with 15,000 people!! In the neighborhood we ran in, there were people outside their homes cheering and they had their houses and yards decorated (in pink of course). It was an awesome experience! After some showers and some rest we headed to our little town square for a yummy lunch and a photo shoot! yes our 2nd annual! :) What a great Saturday!! :)

This weekend was a weekend on the road. I drove to Memphis Friday for a friend's rehearsal dinner which began the weekend of wedding craziness. Their rehearsal dinner was REALLY nice and Steve and I had a good time despite the fact that he was getting over the flu :( he was a good sport! Of course Mom had instructed me to take notes at the rehearsal dinner since we will be planning Adam's and Amy's soon.
Saturday morning my mom and I got up EARLY to drive back to Alabama to wedding dress shop with Amy! It was SO much fun and we really appreciated her inviting us to this special event! We went to a store in Jasper, Alabam and this place had over 600 wedding dresses...totally felt like I was on "Say Yes to the Dress"! We had a great time and it was so fun seeing Amy in her wedding dress - we'll keep the details of that a suprise until May 22nd! :)
A quick lunch with Amy's mom and sister and we were back on the road heading to Memphis for Anna and Taylor's wedding. Who knew it would be 50 degrees mid-October so we bundled up and headed out! The wedding was beautiful...not to mention my boyfriend looked pretty good in his tux ;) !!! The ceremony was completely Christ-focused and wonderful! After the wedding party took some pics we all headed out to the bride's home for the reception - yeah it was outside in a tent but thankfully there were heaters! It was a great night and I'm so excited for Anna and Taylor as they start their life together has husband and wife!

So this afternoon, as I enjoyed some nice down time after class, our AC started pouring out water! So I bravely fought the flood and put a bucket on top of my bed so the water wouldn't soak through my sheets. The RA called maintainance and this is what we got... A window unit with duck tape...really!?!?!
What is this the La Quita?
Oh Samford....we have such a love/hate relationship!!
Also we had to do a little rearranging in the room...yes thats my bed in the middle of the room! gotta love college life!

We had our bi-annual camo party this weekend!! But I have to say, we had a lot more fun getting ready and getting there then we did at the actual party...nothin like jammin with your sisters! But it seems like just yesterday I was begging my big, Barbara, to find me a date to our first pledge bash and hitting up the local salvation army with Vivian to find something to wear for "Talladega Nights". Yet again 4 years later, I found myself at the Salvation Army with my roommate, rummaging through the clothes trying to find some camouflage for my last pledge bash as an ADPi. Since our theme was Mallard Ball, we had to look as hard core as possible so a trip to the Salvation Army and Wal-Mart was a must! And yes there’s nothing like planning ahead, so Friday afternoon at four o’clock, where was I, at Wal-Mart along with the rest of Birmingham and several of our sorority sisters! But it was a fun Friday night and a good memory of my last ADPi pledge bash!
