New beginnings for me :)

So today was a day of firsts.. It was my first day of college. I was totally excited, but nervous at the same time. I got up early took a shower, got dressed, and actually put on some make-up and straightened my hair. I am going to try to do that everyday, but sometimes Grace doesn't allow it lol. Then I head to Dalton State, and to my surprise there was a major traffic jam and NO WHERE to park! I'm glad I got there 15 minutes early. I am pretty sure I ended up parking in a faculty spot lol, but there was someone backing out, so I whipped it in because my class was starting in 5 minutes. Then when I came back out I saw the sign saying that some of the spots were reserved for faculty.. just not sure if mine was or not lol. Anyway, my professors seem really nice and down to earth. I had English 1101 and Intro to Geography today. When I got into the English class I went to take a drink of my water and realized I was shaking.. that is how nervous I was and I have no idea why. I could barely even write the date on my paper. We already had to write an essay in English.. just so he could see everyone's individual writing styles. We also did an icebreaker exercise, my partner was Michael, he was majoring in biology and his favorite TV show was Family Guy lol. My geography professor was going to show us some stuff on his computer, but it wouldn't work so he let us all leave like half way through class. I went to the book store and got my books and went home. Tomorrow I have American History to 1877 and Algebra.
When I got home we went to pay our first cable/internet bill, then we went to eat at Subway. Today is my first day of living more healthy as well. I have drank water all day, ate Subway, and at 8 we are going to go for a walk (waiting for the heat to die down some).

Updates on Grace's party.. We got her party place booked. We are going to have it at the reception area at my dad's church. I also found her party invitations I want to use at Wal-Mart. I am going to buy them next month and start filling them out and then send them sometime in Oct. since her party is at the beginning of Nov. I can't wait!!!


  1. That's awesome that everything went well. I had all those classes already. I am almost done with my core classes which is awesome. O and congrats on eating healthy. I am so mad at my self somehow I gained 2 pounds this week. I wanted to be 138 for my doctors appointment friday since I was 134 last time 4 weeks ago and your suppose to gain 1 pound a week... well you know all this. Im afraid that I will gain another pound by Friday and be a pound over. As of right now. I am 21 weeks and have gained 7 lbs. I have been making sure i haven't eaten any of the wrong stuff and have went for one 1/ and 1/2 mile walk saturday and then we walked 2 miles today and yesterday. And it was all uphill... we also walk at night. it is so much cooler and the babies arent fussy

  2. Sounds like things are going good. I forgot you started college already. Jessie said there was a lot of essays in English. I like essays, but apparently he doesn't because he was always complaining. How did Miss Grace take you being gone again? I Love walking. Sami and I go walk early in the morning because Jessie is worn out when he gets home. She LOVES it. Our family time is dinner. We will sit there after we eat for about half an hour just talking. Sami even joins in. =)
