A Mom and Me Weekend

This weekend was so much fun. I got the chance to hang out with my mom all weekend. Now for some, that may not sound like alot of fun, but for me, it totally is. My awards ceremony for school was on Sunday night and I mentioned once that she should come in for it and just hang out for the weekend. So, she did. All day Saturday we shopped for graduation dresses. She is the one that will be walking me or whatever they call it. I decided since my dad gets to walk me down the aisle, I would give my mom this opportunity. We shopped all over Lubbock and were exhuasted by the end of the day. I'm not used to that much activity on a Saturday and my mom isn't used to that much walking. It was so much fun though. Sunday we went to my dad's old church and hung out that afternoon. She was there to take pictures and congratualate me at the awards banquet so that was nice. Then she got to spend some quality time with the boy. Overall, it was a wonderful weekend. It just reminded me how blessed I was to have an amazing mother that can balance being my friend and mom all at the same time. Its not easy to do. Of course, we missed the rest of the family, but I cherished the time with my mom.

The countdown to graduation is at 12 days!!! DAYS!!! I can not believe I am merely days away from graduating. I only have one presentation and one final left. Then I'm off. Don't ask me to what, but I am done. I have run into another stressful situation with my car. It has come to the end of its time, but I must say my camaro has been good to me. Besides the speeding tickets I get b/c I drive a sports car. I must buy a new car, but the monetary means are not quite there, so I'm going to try to find a new, cheap, reliable car and not worry about it. I'm good at worrying about things, but I'm going to try and let God take this one.
