Wow it's been almost two months since I have posted but I have been so so busy. Between college, work, trying to keep up with family/ friends and getting everything ready to transfer it has just been a hot mess of a time. I hate admitting that I've had a few rough days during this busy season but as always Jesus pulls me through. Here's a little update on the last two months:
In October Kylie and I road tripped it down to Tuscaloosa (about a 4 hour drive) to see our girl, Rachel. It was the first time we had gotten to go see her and her college town and we had so much fun! We visited a haunted house, drove around campus, shopped til we dropped (literally), and ate a whole bunch of goooood food.
The next weekend Emily and I went to Nashville for the Southern Festival of Books. She had to write a paper for one of her classes so we made a small girls road trip to Nash.
The next week I had a surprise visitor in one of my classes. My little cousin came with one of her high school classes to tour my college and the class they just happened to sit in on was one of mine!
That same week I became an aunt!!!! A puppy aunt that is! Everyone meet Miss Reagan Coats!
That Friday one of my best friends came home to visit and of course we went to see Ms. Spence at Oakland.
That weekend my family took a trip to the pumpkin patch and getting my younger sisters to do any fun thing with me was nearly impossible because they are "too cool/ too old for that stuff now"
The next week Sam and Macy played their last game of the fall season. They didn't place but they still did a great job! (especially since this was their first fast pitch season)
That Tuesday Macy had a dentist appointment and really didn't want to go to school after. Since she had already missed half of the day and I was done with classes for the day I decided to make a girls day out of it. I took her to play laser tag (something she had never done before) and then we went to the Pfunky Griddle and made pancakes.
I had to dress up for a project that week and I was a doe (yes, with antlers)
Friday night Emily and I took Sam to her first haunted house (woods) right down the road from our house and had a blast!!
Same weekend my best friends came home for a quick visit and Kylie brought her new boyfriend (yes, we all approve ;) ) We had a bonfire until Kylie and Jacob had to head back to Cookeville. Jordan and I ended up spending about two more hours sitting on our patio having a good ole heart to heart. (Just what this girl needed)
The next week was November so of course November 2nd my Christmas tree went up and the Christmas music has been nonstop since!!!!!!! YAY (27 days until Christmas!)
The next week was election day and guess who was a first time voter (hint: me)
Next was Shelby and Matthew's annual Friendsgiving! She even made a snapchat filter for the event (how cool?!?!?!?)
This was probably the 50th selfie we took because Sam was being picky (okay okay I was the one being picky) but look at Sam's selfie taking skills!
Annual sister picture in the front yard!
And of course there had to be a serious picture
We ate too much, we slept too much, and decorated for Christmas..
Happy Thanksgiving from the Kelly Girls!
Friday afternoon we had Thanksgiving at Mema's house and of course we snapped a cousin picture and a cousin picture with Mema.
Rare occurrence of a selfie with these goofballs
Friday night Kylie, Jess, and I headed back to our high school for a great match up between Oakland and Maryville. My senior year (2 years ago) we played Maryville to determine who went to state and we lost. Last year the same thing happened and again Oakland came up short but this year OAKLAND BEAT MARYVILLE. I'm pretty sure my entire senior class was there along with the rest of Murfreesboro. Oakland is state bound for the first time since 2008 and Oakland also broke Maryville's 12 year streak of making it to state! Oakland plays this Saturday night in Cookeville, TN and you better believe we are road tripping it up there to watch!
Now it's Monday and I'm back to work and school. One week of classes and finals week. The crazy begins now!
