Since I have my 2 front teeth, All I want for Christmas/My birthday is......

This is not a list of things that I am trying to guilt you, my friends, into buying for me.

Don't get me wrong though-- since Christmas (and my birthday!) are really soon, if you want to buy any of this for me, feel free!! In fact, feel encouraged to do so.

This is mostly in the chance that my mom looks at my blog, or my mom's friends look at my blog and fell the urge to tell her what I want.

Anyways, here we go.
Otter Box phone case for my phone. My phone gets abused, I will admit it.

Kavu Rope bag. These are cute and EXTREMELY useful. I want a black one, or khaki, or black hounds tooth. :-)
New shoes. I am running the Holiday Hustle (on my birthday, boooo), and I will be wearing the shoes I bought my junior year of high school. Gosh.

North face Jacket. Cliche', I know, whatever. I still want one.
Airfare to Haiti. I want to go really badly. My parents are going in January for two weeks.
I know, right? Punks.


So there it is.
Happy giving, and I hope that your thanksgiving was as full of food as mine is!

I must watch all award shows with my friend Josh.
We are both ridiculous, and we are both tweeting like crazy.

It is a friendship that is meant to be.

Gotta go- Christina Agulara is on! GAH!

Why would you not want to be with these precious ones?

What is happening? What???

Suzanna has a ridiculous lisp, and is saying things like....
"You probably wouldn't know this, but my mouth was wired shut for the first 14 years of my life"
"My plastic surgeon is my biggest hero... Cause I don't have to live in the basement anymore..."
"Actually, Hallie Stapp is my biggest hero... She helps me take off the fake half of my face every night."
"My mouth is a steel trap. Literally."
"I wasn't dancing. I had an itch in my scoliosis brace."

Jenna is dancing (pantless) to the cha cha slide. Excellent.
"I HATE PANTS!"

Sarah: "Eeeewwwwwww!"
"I didn't mean to say 'eww'. I say 'ewwww' to good cake."

Hallie is wearing all of the scarves in the cube and dancing.
You want proof?
Oh, alright.

Two blog posts in one day.

I know it, I am as surprised as you.

The way the world should work: It's 1 something in the morning, all of the homework that MUST be done is done, so I shall go to bed.

The way the world in fact works: It's 1 something in the morning, so I will check blogs, facebook, twitter, facebook again, and then write a blog post. And excuse me for a moment while I check facebook again.


Ok, I'm back. We are good.

Anyways, besides the urge to sing/quote the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song just now, here is what's happening in my life:

Ok, so I go to Capitol Hill church of Christ every Sunday for evening church. At first I thought it was going to be some thing I did to get the class credit I needed, and then I would move on. After all, inner city missions are cool, but I go to far away places where people don't speak the same language and it is easy to serve God because I see that the people I am serving are poor, but the whole language barrier stops me from really knowing (and caring) what is hurting their hearts, not just their stomachs. I am not going to fall in love with pre-schoolers and families and ministry staff that show me what the real love of Jesus is about. Nope, not what I am going to do with the rest of my life.
I mean, I am right...right? I have plans, I know I am going to be a nurse and move away from America and this is mapped out...

Whoa. Wait. Hold the phone.

I get it God. You are in charge, and You enjoy seeing your plan take effect (affect?) in my life.
You want to lead me to where you have called me. You want me to listen to your voice, even if it is the gentle whisper. Or even if it is a kid in inner-city OKC giving me a hug and telling me he missed me since last time. You want me to trust you.
This is what I want from you God.
Take me from the very inside of my self, God. I am freakin' out. You have some big plan for me, and I am not sure what it is. In fact, I have no idea what it is. But you do, God. So make me happy with that.


Whoa.

That, ladies and gents, is what happens when the way the world DOES work happens... You have big plans (of sleeping) but then your plans are changed (by blogging)...

We serve such a cool God.

they will catch me when i fall (break)

Mom: "So where are you guys going?"
Me: "Um, East."
Mom: "Oh. Well, have fun?"

Repeat this conversation with every person who asked me about fall break.

So me and the gang, yeah, we are a gang, loaded up in three cars and went, you guessed it- East.

Route 66, here we come.

First Stop, POPS. Obviously.
Sorry this is all underlined. I cant help it.

I love these girls. I also love Taylor's face in this picture. Very pretty.

They make my heart pound. Like Justin Bieber. Well, Luda in this case.
Next stop, which was suprisingly like 50 feet down the road, was the Round Barn.
(Cue Sarah Risley saying "Wooohooo" here.)
Then we went to Stroud, OK. Not a lot there, right?

WRONG!

There are little gems like the Rock Cafe, made famous(ish) by the movie Cars!!
Now I am tired of typing, and I am also in class, so enjoy some pictures!




Further proof that SATAN is residing in my best friend.

You are excited to see it, I am sure....

My favorite picture of the trip by far.
I love them. A lot. For ever.
