In other news, I've made my room more "mine" by adding artwork to the walls.

I've started my dad's Christmas gift.

And Barbies have REALLY thick hair!

With school started and the possibility of starting piano up with some students, there are some unknowns. There are even more unknowns when I add my family and myself to that pot to stir around. We'll see what happens, but I'll keep you posted.

So, after a busy first week of school, it's time! Time for the BIG NEWS!!!!

Mildly frustrated I emerdged out of my first meeting for my first fall class. I bought the "correct" book off of amazon and it ended up not being the one that we needed...and I'm past my 30 days to return, could have thought that one out better, but hey, now I know. On the bright side, I have one more book for my associates, YAY!

I with classes starting up, I will be trying my hardest NOT to forget about you, or even to not update as often. My classes are mostly "do-on-your-own" so lets see how my self discipline is...

Anyways, I'll update tonight with pictures and BIG NEWS!!!

So, I took that vacation down to my brother's house. I needed it, but at the same time I feel like I did it at the wrong time. Felt kind of rushed and odd. Then to get home I rode up with my aunt and uncle and we all made plans to join my parents and boyfriend on the Vesper Cruise under the Mackinac Bridge. So after eating lunch at home, we piled into two vehicles and drove to Mackinaw City (yes I know I switched spellings of Mackinac/Mackinaw. I'm correct, look it up). We walked around to different stores and such, and ate a picnic lunch with the seagulls.
The Vesper Cruise is a free (by donation) trip under the bridge with music and history and a short devo of sorts.
But because it's "free" it fills up fast, so we got in line early, and waiting for a while. 
Then we got on board and waited for a while. 
But, we made it, none-the-less. It turned out to be a beautiful trip and a gorgeous sunset (that I didn't even attempt to capture). 
In the end I believe everyone enjoyed it!
