Spring Break!

Hi all!

I am terribly sorry for my massive lack of correspondence. As a young Michelle Tanner on Full House would say, "How rude!" Anyway, SO much has been going on, that I have to so this big huge let's-play-catch-up post. First and foremost, I've heard back from University of South Carolina and as the Gamecock on the back of my envelope, it said "YES!" On top of that, they're offering me a nursing merit scholarship, so USC is super attractive in my house these days. I'm still waiting to hear back from a few, but I should know and probably will have made my choice by the end of the month!

The next order of business is in the VERY near future. My mother booked our spring break trip this year for our entire family to go to Arizona. I don't know the entire agenda, but I know we're staying in Sedona and making our way to the Grand Canyon one of the days. If anyone has any tips on packing, please please please let me know. I don't really know what to bring for this kind of weather. This is a completely foreign destination for my family since we're usually beach people. Yay!

Also, that Habitat for Humanity trip that I very briefly blogged about, GOT ACCEPTED. 20 classmates, 4 chaperones and I are going on a Habitat Trip to North Carolina for our big, important, Independent Senior Project in May. I captained this project, so I'm SO proud of everything that I've accomplished. Everyone is pumped about going so its gonna be AWESOME!

Another thing, lacrosse is going well. The boys are 2-1, but they've only had scrimmages so far. They are happily enjoying the cupcakes, and the mom's ooh-ing and ahh-ing and "Did YOU do ALL these YOURSELF?" is kinda fun too.

Lastly, I am DYING to track down a Lilly Pulitzer Chellis dress for my prom dress. If you happen to see one in a 2 or a 4, TELL ME! I want it in "OK Coral" and if you can't remember what it looks like this is it:
I hope everyone has fun, warm, fabulous spring breaks whenever they may be! I'll try to be better about writing! I promise!!!
