so much to ballyhoo about!!

1. only 3 more days of academia in the 2008-2009 school year! holly- 3 finals away from victory; meagan- 2.

2. Holly is getting bangs on tuesday. potential disaster… I know. but all the best things in life come with risk. living on the edge is the only way to live.

3. one by one, our friends are being sucked into the blogosphere and we LOVE it! looks who’s here!


trent williamson! ya’ll, he really is an american hero. He has been our faithful friend since the beginning of freshman year, but it feels like we’ve know him forever because he’s just so great. the boy has the best manly-decorated bedroom ever and with impeccable music taste, a new holga, classic levis [always rolled up, of course], and a sweet recycling system, this south carolina boy is hip without trying. On any given friday night you can find him whipping up a batch of boiled peanuts for friends, and even if you can’t make it, this dependable texter is just a message away… Also, he’s a rock star young life leader. We wish that we were high school boys so that he would come eat lunch with us 3 times a week. Check him out! He says that he is only going to post videos, but he is so witty… he will have to fold and let his light shine occasionally. For real, you can’t talk to him without a smile, but beware- he might try to kiss you in public. on the mouth.




in 9 days we are going to the lovely state of VA! because, who doesn’t feel totally in their element on a road trip? and with Seattle off the radar, these two girls need a little adventure. We want to drive to Maine but we don’t have time and don’t have anywhere to stay anyway (inconvenient details, you are dead to me), but em and blair are coming along for the ride and we plan to do lots of blue ridge highway cruising and hiking and things of the like. We’re just a little sad that seattle didn’t work out because now we don’t get to drive through kansas



meagan bought this kickass candle a couple of days ago and it smells divine. being confined to a 12×8 study isn’t so bad when you’re listening to The Weepies and breathing in Capri Blue: Black Currant & Cassis. Anthropologie, thank you for taking care of lots of our senses!

6. We learned the secret to making honeysuckle ice cream!!!!!!!!!! Holly already told you our back fence is covered…you know what that means…we’re having honeysuckle ice cream with our berry cobbler. 



meet traveler. on saturday, our friend, joe, is leaving on a jet plane to london and this loveable pup is shacking at 524 for half of the summer. traveler loves vanilla ice cream with dog treats from bruster’s, car rides, and being everyone’s friend. 


The only sad thing about right now is that lots of jems are graduating and moving out of the 1 mile radius that we all live in now. But we are looking forward to seeing where they go and what God does in their lives. And we can’t wait to go visit them in all the fun places they will be, like Buena Vista, Maui and Nashvegas. Just tonight, we promised our soon-to-be-newlywed-friends, David and Callie, we’d visit them in Dallas soon!
