Hello Sweet Cheer: Transformation, a Walk Down Memory Lane & a Little Insta Friday

Transformation, a Walk Down Memory Lane & a Little Insta Friday

     I started writing this post about a week and a half ago.  I left it in my drafts and vowed to return to it later.  Then I missed Insta Friday last week because I was moving home, and now I'm finally feeling a blog coming on.  Sometimes it just works that way.  So here are the last three years of my life in pictures, and 2 weeks worth of Instagram!

     I am officially two semesters away from graduating and becoming a big girl.  Wow, that's scary.  In honor of the new social media fad that is "Transformation Tuesday/Throwback Thursday/Flashback Friday"…let's take a stroll down memory lane…..

Here I am three years ago, on graduation day.

Ready to start a new chapter of my life, but definitely sad to leave home.


My high school bestie, Lauren!  Friends for life, that's for sure.











Another high school bestie, Haley!  Love her.


The morning I drove to Lubbock.  Left McKinney at 5am to get to 
Lubbock in time to check in for Foundation camp.


So many fun memories of that week!  
Here I am after camp, meeting back up with my parents.


And freshman year began…moving into my dorm 
room at 403A Hulen Hall.





One of the first fun things I did in college.  BYX Barn dance.  That's my freshman year
roomie, Megan!  We're still good friends!  And another friend I
met as a freshman, Amanda.  We spent so much time together!  Love her dearly.



My two best friends from my Foundation small group!  
The three of us were inseparable our first semester at Tech.


Fall 2010 was my first Wesley retreat!


In the spring I got really close with these people...




And sophomore year came sooner than I thought it would!

I moved into a house.  Got on Wesley leadership.  
Changed my major.  Grew up a bit.  I had an awesome roomie!



My big sister got married!



I got reallllly close with this girl.  We got involved
with a wonderful youth group!




And that summer all my best friends got married.



Mr. and Mrs. Jeffreys


Mr. and Mrs. Martinez



Mr. and Mrs. Esgar

And a multitude of other couples got hitched, 
but I don't have that many pictures!

That same summer my other big sister got married!




Mr. and Mrs. Lott

And junior year snuck up on me…

And I met some girls who changed my life.

These four girls have been everything this year.  They are funny, sweet, encouraging, they keep me accountable and they challenge me.  I couldn't have asked for a better group of girls to be my best friends.  They picked me up, accepted me, and invited me in when my three best friends moved on.  I will be forever thankful to them for loving me, and I am so blessed with the way God provided for me in a time of need.



And I rekindled…or made stronger…or endured through tough times with this sweet friend.  We've been close since January of 2011 and I'm so glad to have her still.


I also had the opportunity to care for these sweet peas all year.  
So blessed by them and so sad they are moving!!




We fired Tuberville and hired KLIFF KINGSBURY.  It's gonna be a great season, y'all.



And I moved home…out of my little house…that was so good to me for two years. I'm home for the summer, for the last time before true adulthood arrives.  I am so glad to be here spending time with friends and family.





Senior year…I'm ready for you!  But first, Summer, we meet again.
