Family, friends, Maggie and life...

MY BROTHER IS COMING TO SEE ME!!!! Yay!!! I can't wait...he flies in on Saturday morning. I've been a bit homesick, so I'm really, really looking forward to him coming to visit. :) I would be looking forward to it regardless, I'm just EXTRA excited! :) I'm going to take him to D.C. so that we can go to the Spy Museum - pretty cool place! And then we are going to see Michael Buble in concert later on in the week. FUN TIMES! I can't wait!

Today was also a special day for a special person - James Johnson graduated Cum Laude from Kennesaw State University! Congratulations!! I am so proud of you! :)

Maggie had her first bath (given by me, the ladies she lived with before bathed her) today. I think she probably hated it. But, I guess what dog doesn't dislike baths? I also started trying to walk her on a leash today. Needless to say, it's been quite a traumatic day for little miss Maggie. She doesn't like the leash at all, but she can outrun me now, so she needs it...I don't want her to run out in the road.

My parents are coming to see me at the end of August, so I'm pumped about that as well! Aug. is going to be a good month I feel! Oh, and April leaves for Uganda on Thursday. She is really excited, but nervous...lift her up! :)

A close friend of mine just received a job offer today, please lift her up as she makes this big decision...she will have to move about three hours away...

My smilin' baby :)

I got her!

I brought little miss Maggie home last Sunday! She is such a great dog...not quite grasping the potty-training thing yet, but she is only 10 weeks old. :) One of my friends has a blog for her dachshund, so I have started one her Maggie as well! If you care to read about her life (from HER perspective hehe), check it out! It's a pretty fun blog to write...if you have pets, you should try it! :)

Here are some photos of my baby! :) Enjoy!

Nosy little thing!
So it has been a few days since the last day of King's Fest...sorry for my lack of picture updates. The two headliners were Jeremy Camp and Todd Agnew. I was THRILLED to see Jeremy Camp because he is the artist that got me listening to Christian music again (pretty much after dctalk, I wasn't interested)...his music also has a big influence on my testimony, if you want to hear more just ask. :)


Todd Agnew:

Todd Agnew is the one wearing the 'Memphis' shirt. The man on the right was our amazing MC for all three days of King's Fest. He was great - I will forever think of him when I read (or hear) the verse about being 'salt and light' because of a message he gave on the second night.

Jeremy Camp:

I love this picture...however, I wish it wasn't so grainy-looking.

He's amazing.

Diverse City!

Last night (Friday), April and I got to see Kutless, tobyMac and Casting Crowns at King's Fest. Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure. :)


tobyMac and the Diverse City Band:

Casting Crowns:

...and so goes the Newsboys song "Breakfast." Great song! (I love breakfast food)

April and I had the chance to see them Thursday night at King's Fest. Amazing! We also got to see the David Crowder Band. He was wooonderful! Here are some pictures.

The most ghetto-fabulous cake...ever!

Ok, I have made this cake before, and it turned out WONDERFUL! Not sure what happened this time - but it was ghetto from the beginning. Pretty soon after putting the two eight inch pans (with chocolate-cake batter of course) in the oven, I started to smell a burning smell. But there was NO WAY it could be burning - both pans were on top of cookie sheet so that they wouldn't burn. Well when I took them out of the oven I knew something had burned. I let the two cakes cool, and then took them out of their pans. One-half of one of the cakes was burned on the bottom and the other was PERFECT. After pulling off the burned parts from the bottom of one of the cakes I started to GLOB on the homemade peanut butter icing so that it would be somewhat level (it didn't work, by the way). I started putting the icing (which I have also made before, and it was fine) on the rest of it, and that's when the ghettofying continued. It just started to crumble, and the icing wouldn't spread!!!! ...After my roommate and I had a good laugh, we decided to take pictures. Why? Because this cake is bad. Real bad.

OH! But it tastes GREAT in case you were wondering...

Oh, I almost forgot - I was making this cake for Chris B. (and intern at work) who's last day is tomorrow. Sorry Chris! Not just for making a ghetto cake, but also because you won't get to try it. It's a little too embarrassing! Haha!

Have you seen or done worse?? If, so...I would loooove to see your "masterpiece." (Oh, and it has fallen apart more since these pictures were taken. Ha!)
