So for Memorial Day, Kayla (a student/friend who works at the Rock on campus) and I went canoeing down the Brazos River.  It was great...although there were parts where we had to walk the canoe because the water was low.  Additionally, we made an 8 1/2 mile trip in a little over 4 hours.  We had a blast.  Here are some pictures from our trip down the river! :)

squirrel?! So I have been growing my hair out for a little over a year. I found a new organization that creates free wigs for women who have lost their hair b/c of cancer treatments. So no...although this looks like a creepy fuzzy creature, it's my hair :)

And here is a picture of my new's short, especially since I went from LOOOOONG to short...but I like it, and it's SO easy! I'll be happier when its just a bit longer and I can put it into a pony tail. :)

Saga of the Scar :)

I'm off to bed...but I had a couple people (family) ask how my scar was so here you go...I know, terribly interesting...ha!I'm now using Maderma (sp?) apparently it's suppose to be good for scars and it has SPF 30 in it as well.  Additionally, I can't expose it to sun for 18 months after surgery... it's going to be a long summer! ;)  Thank goodness for sunscreen!


I am on an Alcohol Education work team at Baylor.  A few weeks ago, as part of Diadeloso (day of the bear), our work team set up an experience where students were able to wear intoxication goggles and either walk the line or drive a golf cart...if they were unsuccessful, they were taken to jail (a fake jail of course).  Anyway, it was both entertaining and educational.  

Here are some pictures from the day!  I also have a video of myself driving with the intoxication goggles...I'm not sure I know how to add video?!

This picture is with Meredith (she's a fellow hall director and part of the alcohol work team).
Okay, this is the beginning, I couldn't believe how hard this was!  P.s. the officer gave me the 'way intoxicated' goggles...there are varying levels.
Here's Em...I'm not sure what she's doing...her goggles are in her hand...maybe she's trying to cheat :)
Oh Em...there you go! :)  Oh're about a foot away from the line...
Seriously, I promise we started out on the lines! :)
See...this is the first picture, I'm on the line... but not for long!
The Ecklund family!  I just love them!
Oh and me and Gianna...oh she is just too cute!  I just love being a part of their lives (and hers!).  I know her parents brag, but seriously...she's just that cute...and smart!  I absolutely love her laugh!

okay, so I went to the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA) conference back in Boston.  Below are some pictures from the trip, it was wonderful, I loved Boston! :)

Sorry these pictures aren't in order...this picture is Peter.  We toured Harvard and it has a wonderful science building with this fun toy :)
Stacie, Karen, and I went to the Upper Crust...a great little pizza place in Boston before seeing the city!
Karen was my roommate for the conference...we had a blast.  This is a picture of us in front of the harbor. It was COLD, but beautiful.
Jennifer and I ventured out one night.  Unfortunately, it began POURING!!!!!!  We were soaked!  We took a little pit stop in Macy's to warm up/dry off a bit. :)
See, this is me...I am wet!
Jennifer went with me into this classroom in Harvard.  She didn't want to write on the chalkboard and didn't like that I wanted to!!!! :)  I wanted to write, Shannon was here...or some other brilliant words to live by...but I didn't...don't worry, I erased it, for Jennifer's sake :)
The group of us who visited Harvard.
Although it looks like I did a lot of traveling around the city, I was actually in sessions and/or interviewing most of the time I was there...however, Karen and I stayed a day later which allowed us to see the city in its splendor.
