The Fun that was Last Weekend

I too am going to try to post everyday this month. I realize it is Nov. 5, but I'll go to Dec 5, how about that?
Last weekend was as fun as I was hoping it would be!
Friday: Rolled into Wacky Waco around 8 pm after sitting in Houston traffic for a while. I met up with Elaine, Brian, Emily, and Kasey at Rudy's. A homecoming tradition. Ate some tasty bbq and then it was off to the bonfire. We missed most of the pep rally because it apparently started earlier than we though. But we did get to hear that ZTA/ATO won Class A Float. Being a past Float chair of ZTA I was very happy for them. I know the hard work that goes into making those darn floats. We wondered around the bonfire for a while. I met up with one of my old roomies from college, Candice. It was so great to see her! After the bonfire we went to Crickets for a few drinks and then realized how old I am because it was 1230 and i was ready to go home. Stayed at the Motel 6 in Bellmead with the Flores' and the Massenburgs. I was packed in tight into a bed with the Massenburgs. Thanks Leslie for sharing with me! It was quite a sight.

Saturday: Woke up super early to go to the ZTA Homecoming Breakfast. It was really fun but strange not to recognize any of the active members and to have the Composit with me as Rituals on Exec not on the wall anymore, only my senior year composit. After the breakfast we ventured down to the parade. It was the parade. What more is there to say? Haha. I did purchase a new baylor t shrit and sweat shirt and some baylor coffee, so i'm ready to go with my BU spirit. We walked around campus a little bit more and then I left around 1130, stopping at Bush's on way back to Houston for some lunch. mmmm.

Patrick and I headed to the Woodlands that afternoon for Jen Wu and Nick Floyd's wedding. Jen and I went to law school together and I know Nick now because of being friends with her for 3 + years. We checked into our hotel room and got ready. The wedding was beautiful! It was a this resort and it was outside as the sun was setting. We had cocktails after the wedding to wait for the reception to begin. It was super fun night. A good majority of my law school friends were in attendance. We danced and hung out till about 2 am that night. I had a great time! Jen looked amazing and they both seemed very happy. I was glad to be a part of their celebration.

Sunday: I met my parents and sister and uncle at my apartment. I showed them my new apartment and they met my cat Callie. After that we decided to drive down to Galveston to survey the damage. My older sister Katie and my bro in law Steve lived down there for about 8 years. It was an interesting journey. Some things have been rebuilt and others have not. You can see the water lines on a lot of buildings. The Seawall seemed to be thriving but the Strand was desserted, very sad. I hope they can put things back together. After galveston we went to Goode BBQ and met Patrick there. Its my fave bbq place in Houston. mmm. Then we just went back to Kate's house and watched the end of the Cowboys losing to the Giants, sad, and then watched tv. A great visit with my family!!

That was my weekend of fun. Hopefully this weekend will be fun too. That all depends on how today or tomorrow turns out. What am I talking about might you ask, bar results. That's right. Today or tomorrow I will know my fate. And i think its an understatement to say i'm nervous. My hands are sweaty and I feel really jittery and I'm checking the website every five minutes (anyone like to trade places with me?). Trust in the Lord Sara. That's what I need to be doing.

Until tomorrow,

Much love.

Yay: seeing so many friends this past weekend.

Dang: waiting, and waiting, and waiting, and waiting ....

I'm praying for you. I know how nervous I was waiting for my license results for nursing. Keep putting that trust in God.
