No Longer MIA!

Well my lovely followers... I am back! Sorry for the lack of action lately but since its the last few days of summer, I had to fully submerge myself into the warmth and outdoors. Unfortunately blogging, tweeting, and Facebook had to take a backseat. Now I get to show you guys what I have been up to.

1. Trip to Northern Michigan University with my best friend to visit my sister and some friends. Since it is located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I came prepared hike, swim, and experience what college life is like for them.

2. Cliff diving... enough said.
3. Making delicious Cookies 'n Creme cupcakes!
4. Watching my brother's senior year varsity football games. He has scored 5 touchdowns in each of his first two games, so I spend most of the game jumping up and down and acting like an idiot. Yeah, I am in his number one fan. Not to mention from attending every game, I am becoming a phenomenal action shot photographer.
5. Taking care of my burn victim of a best guy friend. We were lighting sparklers one night together and acting like kids by writing each other's names in the air. Well he was holding a group of them together and went to light them... all of a sudden they instantly exploded in his closed fist. I rushed him to the hospital immediately and now once a day, I get the pleasure of redressing his wounds and thanking God it wasn't me... Sorry B.
6. Making serious progress on our back porch bathroom... Goodbye lime green {yikes}, hello beautiful tan.
7. Finishing the Friday Night Lights seasons. I literally cried of happiness for 20 minutes straight during the season finale. I loved this series and can't help but hope that the talk of making a movie out of it comes true. Plus staring at Tim Riggins for five seasons makes anything enjoyable!
Who else is trying to get everything out of the rest of the summer? Have you guys tried anything new lately? New hobbies? New loves? I wanna know what's keeping you busy.

I love michigan the water there is amazing. i went to Mackinaw city last year and it was such a blast. That cliff diving seems a little too scary for me but it's always fun to see other people try it. lol Yes you can call me a chicken. ha ha Well it seems like you really had a great summer. I mean cupcakes, football, family, redecorating I mean what more can you ask for ? i on the other hand did absolutely nothing this summer. No vacation time for me just school and that's about it. Anyways thank you so much for following my blog. It really means a lot to me :D
