Chemistry is the best, and so am I!!!

Yesterday in my chemistry lab, we had to do yet another stupid experiment. You know the kind where you heat stuff up for 7 minutes in order to clean it and then have to wait for "at least 10 minutes" to let it cool off. Then you weigh it and heat it up with a tiny piece of metal in it and heat it over a bunson burner for another 20+ min waiting for a reaction to occur. Then you let it cool for another 10 minutes so you can weigh it again. All for nothing...nothing ever happened! You're probably thinking "what a waste!" but that's where you're wrong. All that time waiting around for results to NOT happen gave us time for a photo shoot. Here's a few of my favorites. This is me with my new friend Danielle. I think we look very attractive, don't you? Those goggles are just so stunning!

Then and Now

Wow, I can't believe how much time I've let go by without blogging. I've been a busy girl I guess. Anyway, I keep saying that I need to blog about my birthday. For those of you who don't know, Chris and I were introduced when I was out celebrating my birthday with friends. I didn't want to meet him but couldn't find a way to nicely say no. The night we met, we were at Texas Roadhouse so its been our tradition every year since to go there to celebrate my birthday and our meeting. Time has really flown by. I don't know where the last five years have gone.

When that picture was taken of me five years ago, Chris just happened to be in it, and I'm so glad I have it to document that day. Here's another picture that was just supposed to be of me holding up my cake and Chris just happened to be in. I thought it was a funny coincidence and very appropriate to share.

Back to my original point. I had a great birthday. I took the Saturday before off so Chris and I could hang out. We went to Texas Roadhouse and ordered way to much food and took a ton of it home, which is always a great thing. Sunday, we celebrated with my fam with a turkey dinner...Theresa's fav. The next day, Jen slaved in the kitchen to make this beautiful and delicious cake for me. I'm still not used to getting to having a cake all for me but I definitely like having my own. (For those of you who don't know, I share my birthday with my big brother, Nathan, and my sister Theresa is just 2 days after ours. So growing up, we all shared the same birthday cake) Thank you so much to everyone who helped make it such a fun day. I hope I never get too old to celebrate my birthday!

Other than that not too much exciting news with us. Youth conference is coming up pretty quick so we are getting everything all ready for that. I don't know how we got put in charge of it, but I think its coming together finally. It will be lots of fun but I will be glad when its all over and I don't have to think about it anymore! School is still going well, only about 6 more weeks till the end of the crazy is that?! That's about it though. I'll try to not be so much of a slacker with blogging. Hopefully I wont let another 3 weeks go by this time! Have a great week!
