Those clouds..

Hey friends! Sorry it’s been about a week since I last posted. School work has been keeping me tied to my desk/computer.

I spent all day Friday and Saturday working on homework and hardly made a dent in my to-do list. Not cool. Spending hours upon hours doing homework led me to second guess myself and my course load for this semester. My ego took a little punch. I also got another C on a meteorology test. cloudsThose clouds. You look cool, but I can’t understand you!

Going to the store and buying oatmeal creme pies makes me feel better though. IMG_4932


Life has been full and busy, but I’m making sure to appreciate the little things…

IMG_4949My dad went to Texas for a business trip (I was so jealous) and brought me back a fleece jacket that says “Houston.” I missed him while he was gone, but I made sure to make him a care package full of granola and mixed nuts for his flights, etc.

IMG_4946My mom met up with me at a local park when I had a gap between my classes. We walked around the frozen pond and then got coffee. It was so nice to just talk with my mom. Jimmy and I went to this same park yesterday and saw people ice fishing!

lilyLily is fascinated by my printer. I enjoy seeing the world through her eyes.

IMG_4955I love my “little sister” even though she’s taller than me! Lately, people keep thinking we’re twins or that she’s older than me.

Jimmy and I celebrated Valentine’s Day on Sunday by visiting our church’s “sister church,” going out to lunch, and going bowling! bowlingI bowled a 133 during our second game. It was probably the best day of my life. Just kidding. But not really.

Jimmy made me the best gift ever. You see, I’m a little bit obsessed with corn bread. I seriously eat it every day. So he baked me corn bread and cut it into a heart LOL. corn breadI couldn’t stop laughing. Until I started eating the whole thing in (almost) one sitting ;). I love my boyfriend.


What’s the toughest class you’ve ever taken in school?

What’s the best gift you’ve ever received? 


  1. Pre-calc, calc and statistics were the worst! I HATE math and my teachers are always foreign (LANGUAGE BARRIER!) =P Your cat is super cute! It makes me miss mine! 🙂

  2. Aww that corn bread is so cute! And I love that you were able to go for a walk with your mom. It makes me wish I lived closer to home. It seems like you’re doing pretty well outside of the blog world. Biochem was the hardest class I’ve ever taken. I barely passed that class, which I can’t say about any other class I’ve ever taken.

  3. My hardest classes in college were history, calculus, and believe it or not… TECHNICAL WRITING. Chemistry 102 wasn’t easy either. I did pretty well in all of them, just had to study a lot. Hopefully your studying pays off soon, I bet meteorology is a really hard subject honestly. It sounds like you guys had a great Valentine’s Day and I love the cornbread that’s shaped like a heart, hehe.

  4. man he is adorable, you are going to have one special vday!! I know it is hard to get a bad test grade, I did the same thing but cut yourself some slack. like all classes it takes a while to really understand what the teacher wants

  5. I was just thinking about you Allie and wondering how everything was going. I remember taking a basic meterology class in college and nearly dying. There is so much memorization and it was one of my hardest classes no doubt. I love that Jimmy made you cornbread. That is so adorable.

  6. Aww, that cornbread Jimmy made you is so cute! He is a keeper, for sure. 😉 My two younger sisters are both taller than me too! They make me feel so short. You and Hannah really do look a lot alike…you are both gorgeous!

    Have a great week and good luck in your classes!

  7. Toughest class would be Finance for sure.

    Gosh, I love clouds. LOVE.
    I am sure a few of them will stick and then you can impress people like:
    “BAM look at them cumulo-nimbi — things just got REAL! Better go get some Little Debbie to weather out the storm!.”

    And then you can eat Oatmeal Pies with peanut butter and jelly on top.
    Because Peanut Butter and Jelly.

  8. Aww, what a sweet boyfriend! I love how he is so thoughtful! And girl, people always thought I was older than my older sister which I LOVED! She is 6 years older than me so I always felt so cool when they thought I was older. It’s just because I’ve always been so tall and she’s always been so…. not tall. 😉 And then lots of people thought my younger sister and I were twins which I find kind of hilarious since she’s blonde and blue eyed while I’m brunette with hazel eyes. We definitely look like sisters and sometimes I mistake myself for one of my sisters in a photo, but still! When we’re side-by-side people should be able to tell we’re not twins, haha!

  9. What’s your favorite cornbread recipe? I love it, too, and I really want a quick and easy one. Even a single serve shin-dig. You saw people ice fishing?! I thought only people who lived in the tundra states took part in ice fishing lol. People always think I look way younger than I am, too, it’s a pain!

  10. Toughest class I ever took was Logic. I thought I was going to love it but ohh, it was rough until I finally “got it” 3/4 of the way through the semester. Thought about dropping it many times but ended up sticking with it and I’m glad I did.

    Best gift I ever received was probably my engagement ring–I love it!

    I hope you and the Jimsters get engaged soon! You two are so cute together!
