Bucket List Y'all!

OK, so do you ever get this overwhelming feeling that there is sooo much you want to do in your day, week, year, and even life, but there is just simply never enough time?  Join the club.  That is a constant feeling of mine, and I pray to God that this feeling never goes away.  I mean, what the heck am I going to do with the rest of my life, if I have seen and done it all at the age of 22 (I guess I could do a lot of Netflix watching?).  With that being said, I am going to create the ever so cliche "Bucket List".  I really don't mind being a little cliche anyway.  I have decided to start small. While I am thinking of all the things I want to do on my life long list, I have created a list for the next year.  Most of this check list is not "life altering" in any way, but just some fun things I have never done.  I would LOVE any and all suggestions. If you're feeling spontaneous, or just like a good friend join in on the action!

SB's Bucket List:
1.) Tailgate and sit through an entire Mocs Football game.  2.) Actually attend a Mocs Basketball game.  3.) See a sunset at "Sunset Rock".  4.) "See Rock City", Ruby Falls, etc. (the whole shabang).  5.) Go on an official date (it's time to get back on that saddle).  6.) Take Chloe to the dog park.  7.) Decorate my house for Christmas.  8.) Get my first "big girl" job.  9.) Make another video with LW.  10.) Hit 1,000 tweets.  11.) Graduate from college.  12.)  Get accepted into graduate school.  13.) Make all A's my last semester of college.  14.) Go to a purebarre class.  15.) Become a Chi Omega Alumna.  16.) Plan my trip to Europe.  17.) Chattanooga Ducks Tour, Ghost Tour, etc.  18.) Host a dinner party.  19.) TBA

 Well, I still have some things to add, but this is it for now. Peace, Love, and Keep Rollin On.

Before I Forget

Dadadadaaa! First real post! Anyway, I just wanted to take a second to appreciate some lovely ladies in my life.  I recently had the pleasure of being the VP of recruitment for UTC's Panhellenic.  This, my friends, was no easy task.  We got through it though, and it was very successful to say the least.  So, one of the best parts of disaffiliating from your sorority is the traditional "running out the door" back to your sorority.  For me, this was my 3rd time doing so.  I was a little nervous this time running back, because my pledge class is no longer in the chapter (seeing as they have all grown up, and I am still trying to be a kid). So, in my mind I thought my roommates, Chi O family, and maybe a select few would be at least a little excited to see me, but the rest could really take me, or leave me.  

Well, well, well... I just have to say that I have the absolute best friends/ sisters a girl could have! These sneaky ladies, (my pledge class) planned to come to "running out the doors", and wiggle their way up to the front right before I was about to run out.  As they were holding my banner up, I jumped up to see where I was going, and to my surprise, they were all standing there waiting for me.  Obviously, I started crying, but I will never forget that feeling of being so incredibly blessed with these women.  And like the pictures show, I ran out to these beautiful ladies, and it has never felt better.  
So, to these women, thank you so much for being the encouraging and inspiring women of character that you are. I am so blessed to have you all in my life.  This right here, is one of the many events I am so very thankful to have in my "victory lap".  Oh... and to that brat in the picture above, we got our second chance :) Love, love, love you all!

Well, Hello There

I think I am a little too excited/ nervous about this whole blogging experience.  After careful consideration, (consideration that is, about the embarrassment that is to come from this. I have great friends I know), contemplation, and any other -ation out there, I have decided to start my very first blog.  Obviously, my first obstacle was what the heck to write about.  As I am trying to solve this issue it hits me: "when in the world am I ever going to be able to sit at work, and do something like this again?" BingoI have the luxury of attending college for a victory lap 5th year at UT Chattanooga. I am in the transitional stage between college student, to young adult.  As I was looking back at the previous 4 years, I realized there was STILL so much I wanted to do, see, and experience, before I have to cross that scary bridge. So, I am going to document this last year, "as a kid", and hopefully I will have experienced many new things by May 5, 2012... not that I'm counting down or anything.  This blog is completely intended for fun, laughter, and all good things in life.  Please bare with me, as I stumble through these first couple of times!
