i was puppysitting for my cousin this weekend while he and his fam were in st. louis for a wedding. so i dragged taryn and ej out to lisle with me to enjoy a night of raging in naperville. steve met up with us - which ended up being quite the lifesaver. all in all, it was sloppy... i mean... amazing.
after a night of partying, i really didn't want to go. but i didn't want for my mom to go by herself either so i agreed to take the trip and hear this "amazing message" speaker greg laurie had in store for us. it was actually really inspiring and i'm so glad i went! it's important to remind yourself of what's important every once in a while. with the ridiculousness that is my life, i couldn't pass up the opportunity to remind god that i'm still around. and still in serious need of his help. it was good stuff. oh, ps - it was PACKED! this is literally a pic taken from the rosemont theatre.
i'm poor again.
i seriously broke the bank on saturday.
too. many. purchases.
i'll be bringing my lunch to work for the next month.
i'm back from watercolor and i miss my friends already!!
it got weird.
sadly, i forgot my camera so i have very little to show for it.
it may or may not have something to do with the fact that i missed my flight thinking it was 2+ hours later than it actually was. when i got a call from casey at 11:05 am asking if i had boarded my 11:25 flight, i was still in my towel, makeup-less with wet hair.
apparently i don't know how to put on spray sunscreen.
i was referred to as "sunburns" or "cat in the hat" all weekend.
this beast was in the middle seat next to me on the plane ride home from dallas to chicago.
after traveling all day, it was pretty awesome to see that the row in front of us comprised of two skinny girls with no one seated between them. of course. then i was presented with this visual snack while waiting for my bag in the airport.
gorge!! and to continue the theme of the weekend, my bag was lost in dallas. so after waiting for everyone to clear out i headed over by the baggage peeps and arranged for them to deliver it this morning.
but despite all the bad luck (read: i'm retarded), i had the best time!
i'll upload some pics stolen from katie or whitney to prove it soon. :)
