Hmm maybe I should have entitled this post "things I learned in kindergarten.". And I regress...
Let me start again. After 12.5 years of grade school, 5 years at THE University of Oklahoma....I love Norman, OU and the amazing friendships I made there, and Bob...Stoops that is. I met my roommate and incredible friend Abby during my freshman year in PLC (presidents leadership class)...yep the girl that uses a chalkboard from kindergarten to tell left from right was in PLC. See dreams can come true. Abby and I were roommates for the next 4 years! We have some wonderfully crazy memories! You may remember this post. I "officially" entered into a relationship with my one and only in between my first and second year at OU. More on that sometime soon. I went through rush my third year as an old lady and met another one of my best friends Alex while doing so.

I ran another marathon with my husband, took a few awesome trips to help me keep my sanity, have been through a handful of trials during the past two years and I have made some of the most awesome friends ever, oh how I love you girls!

I must thank the good Lord for wonderful memories and life lessons. While I am very much looking forward to beginning a new chapter of my life, in 12 more months that is, it is very bittersweet.
