This morning I woke up to a very white view, everyones favorite text and lots of excitement. This week has been a pretty interesting week
Tuesday- Cold and Ice/Snow
Friday- lots and lots of snow
I can't really complain because after the ice on Monday, I really was wishing for some REAL snow. The only problem with this was when I wished for this REAL snow I wasn't really wishing for snow on Friday. I was super excited because my friend Michelle was going to take my back home, to Austin, TX, with her and I was so excited. Living in Texas you always hear people talk about certain things and one of those things is Austin. It is apparently such a cool place and I was really looking forward to Pre-Spring Break trip. The excitement of this left this morning when I looked out my window, but it was quickly replaced by the excitement of a snow day.
Today, it was basically snowed all day and it is still snowing. The campus is beautiful, which means Insta has been blown up with pics, but I don't really care because I could look at the snow for days. I got lots of greats pics and loved every bit of today. My friend patrick lives in the commons, which is the center of campus, and with this being the center, it was hopping today! After I had my fun in the snow I spent the whole day people watching, one of my favorite activities. It was so nice to just sit, watch and enjoy the snow. In doing this though, I did realize that I missed being around a fire place with my cool parents basically waiting on me. Yeah, I guess that is called growing up. Anyways, while I was people watching, I three interesting things.
1. The typical slips and falls, which are hilarious.
2. A girl dressed as a tiger, crawling on all fours in the snow. Best thing I saw all day.
3. A girl, who was obvious freezing, in a tutu taking some type of dance pictures.
People, including myself, will do anything for a good photo.
After all the people watching my friend and I decided to have a movie night. We watched "Gone Girl". Totally crazy, but totally a great movie. I want to read the book now!!
Like I said this movie was crazy and we kind of long so we decided to take a small break. It was a good thing I decided to text my dad and get the ingredients to this famous "Snow Ice Cream".
Okay so very weird not having him make it, but I made it in his place and my friends really liked it. So yes, Dad I have learned something from you... I know you are excited. Thank you!
Now, I am looking back on the great day and I just realized that today was my first Texas Snow!!! I mean I have had snow in Arkansas and Colorado, but never before in Texas. So today was the perfect first snow! So even though my original plans didn't work out, I feel like God gave me something just as great! Remember that next time things don't go as planned... Something better is always down the road. That I am WAY thankful for!!

Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love.
