I am FINALLY home after being in Oklahoma way too long!  Don't get me wrong...I love Oklahoma, but a Texas girl NEEDS her feet on Texas soil way more often than I'm able to do so:)

Anyway, the holiday's are upon us and one of my favorite things to do is get dressed up for a holiday party! What better time is there for bright red lips, glitter and bold colors?

I'm usually not such a girly girl...but you have to give this one to me.

I found a great holiday makeup tutorial that I just have to share!

I hope you enjoy!  I know what I'll be wearing Christmas Eve;) 

With Love,

Adulthood is HARD.

Ok Ok.

I know I said that I was moving, but something keeps leading me back to this blog.  I don't know if it's the followers or the previous posts or what, but I just love it and i'm back!  I hope you are all SO excited.  I probably just made your day. (HA)

Anyway, to get down to the purpose of this post.  Adulthood is HARD.  I know that everyone who has ever gone into adulthood before me is going..."Well DUH." But seriously...It's harder than I anticipated.  I think the hardest part is trying to figure out exactly what it is that I want to do and what it is that God has planned for me.

If I can ask that you keep me in your prayers as I make decisions about my future and my life, I would appreciate it SO much.

You guys are great!

Hopefully I will be blogging more often!

I'm Moving!

Hello Followers!

As you may know, I am moving my blog (and hopefully all of you) to a new blog I'm calling "Is this real life?"  I hope you decide to switch over there with me!  It will be lots of fun!

Thanks guys!

The Number One Busiest

I know that you are all waiting on the edge of your seats to know what I'm doing on a Friday night...well I will tell you.  

I am sitting on my my PJs...watching a chick flick that I am certain that I won't like the ending to.  I know that it doesn't sound glamourous, but it is actually the best thing! Well...except for the chick flick with the bad ending that is.  

Life has been SUPER busy since school got back up and running! I'm constantly running from cabaret practice to spring sing practice to the apartment and then it's time for homework!  It just never ends! 

But I am still so blessed!  God proves that to me every single day.

I am so blessed to have the wonderful roommates that I have.  Like today, my sweet precious roommate Natalie made me a yummy omelet with some fresh fruit and tea because I was tired and broke after cabaret rehearsal!  Little things like that just show me how much God loves me!  

I hope that this weekend, God shows you how much you are loved:)

Did I make up that word? probably.  Is it the most accurate of how I feel. absolutely.

Today (January 7) would have been my Dad's 53 birthday.  That is such a weird thing to say.  "would have been."  It's almost been 6 years and I still expect him to come walking in that door! I'm glad it's that way though.  I fear the day that I am resigned to the fact he's not coming back and I pray that it never comes because I think it would just be too much to handle.  Maybe that makes me naive...but i'd rather call it...hopeful.  The hope is what keeps the sadness at bay.  HOWEVER, this was not meant to be a sappy, sad here I go! :)

As per Callaway tradition, the tradition of being awesome that is, we celebrated Daddy's birthday by having a Callaway cookout!  Burgers, brats...the works.  And to top it off, it was 55 degrees.  Yep, we do it real and we do it big:) We ate yummy food, watched Castle (our new favorite show) and just enjoyed spending time together.

This break more than any of my other college breaks has shown me just how fantastic my family really is.  I mean i've always known that I was super blessed in the fam department, but seeing how my family is growing (as in getting older) and seeing how we deal with what life throws at us makes me so proud to be a part of it.  Dad would be proud. God truly is the great creator.

Tomorrow (January 8th) is my BEAUTIFUL Mom's birthday!  I am so excited that we get to celebrate with her...even though we have to drive back to school before her birthday is over:/  She is such an inspiring, God fearing and gorgeous woman.  I hope that I can be half as incredible as she is when I am her age.

That's all for now! I'm off to watch one more episode of Castle and then call it a night:)

A Year in Retrospect

It has just dawned on me how many blessings I received throughout the year 2011.

Sad isn't it?  That I had to ring in the new year before I could see just how blessed I was in the old year?

There were good memories and bad memories, lessons learned and laughter enjoyed...but through it all I see one recurring theme.  JESUS. He was with me all the way.  And sadly, through the latter half of good 'ole 2011, I couldn't feel him there.  But looking back in the past several weeks, I can see his fingerprints everywhere.  He was with me in the toughest of situations, in the happiest of moments and in the darkest of nights.  And I know that he will continue to walk with me, and carry me when needed, right on through 2012.

And THAT my friends, is something to celebrate.

Happy New Year!
