The weekend of a LIFETIME! :)

Well... This weekend was one of the BEST that I have had in a very long time! I traveled to Georgia to see my boyfriend. I was planning on surprising him but little did I know it was not going to happen that way... I arrived in the Atlanta airport and I saw his mom and little sister. I was so excited but yet SO nervous! As we were walking towards the baggage claim his mom was talking to me and asking me if I was excited/nervous/all of the above. I was telling her that I did not know what I was going to do when I saw him. All of a sudden... I feel a tap on my shoulder and there he was. With a single red rose. I was SHOCKED! It was absolutely amazing though! I was glad it was over with faster than I planned. 

So... All weekend we just hung out with his friends and family. It was so great to get to meet all of the important people in his life! 

Brianna (his little sis)


Him and his grandfather! :) 

Dinner with the fam!

Pa-Paw! :) 

Ma-Maw! :)

Two days after I left he did too. He left for Marine Combat Training. He will be there for 28 days and then he heads to the Sunshine State for more schooling! Him and his friend John were able to travel to North Carolina together. They were together at basic training and now they get to be together through even more training! It is a good thing too! One of the main things they teach in the Marine Corps is: 2 is better than 1.

John and Austin! :)

Austin and I! 

Thanks for reading! I will post more once I get some more pictures of swimming and my other college adventures!

Wuah Wuah like a Dungeon Dragon!!!

It has been a while since I have blogged.... Hope these pictures show what I have been up to!!!! 

The above 3 happened when I left my phone at the dinner table.... 

Burning of the "M" for Homecoming!

 For MSUM Homecoming we had a dance! After our Alumni meet a group of swimmers got all dolled up, went to dinner and then went to the dance! It was such a great night of friends and dancing! :) 

Ink #2!

(Just kidding! It was a spray on tat that I sported in honor of my bestie!)

Oh ya know... Just a quick snow storm in October. 

I had to pull out ALL the winter gear! 

Brazilian Pretzel! :) 

Happy Halloween!! :)

The above 3 pictures have THE BEST story to go along with them...

This week was my first official college swim meet. To say the least.. I was super excited! It was about an hour and a half before warm up started and we were going to have our team meeting. I was walking down the hall and my coach called me over. I was confused so I kind of gave her a little trouble. She told me to just come over. So I did. As soon as I walk around my corner, my parents were standing there!!!!!! I was in shock! I cried like a baby and it made my whole day! The pictures above are some of the ones that my mom was sending me... I was confused but I thought they were cute! Little did I know that they were taking them that day and sending them!!! It was an awesome surprise and I think I swam better because they were there! ;-)
