Last weekend was Double Decker and Woodstock. We almost got blown away and did get rained on a little bit. All in all it was a incredibly fun weekend though. One of those weekends where you just love being in Ox. Lots of time was spent at the square, live music on Saturday night and Double Decker on Sunday(moved bc of the weather). Baseball games Saturday and Sunday.. we swept LSU by the way! Some guys even brought brooms on Sunday which made my day. My mom came to visit because we had parents weekend here at the Deeg. Friday night we had Taylor Grocery catered to the DG house and a fabulous little DG dinner party which was so much fun! Saturday night some girls and I went to Lenoras on the square where we had an amazing dinner as well! I was pleased to host Lauren for the weekend as well. She's coming to school here next year and it's always fun to come up and get a feel for things early. My weekend recap is a little unorganized and ramble-y to say the least but this was a fabulous weekend!!
Now it's the last week of class before finals. Spring fever is completely in swing.. I never want to do anything school related and I love being outside! I have to keep reminding myself that school is still going on and "You can do this!" I tell myself this alot... I don't know why but it keeps me going!
Off to bed for now.. my writing is getting short!
She has grown so much!! This is one of those times where I start to feel old...
Happy Birthday Avery, Love you!!

In other news.. We WON Derby Day again!! This is our second year in a row not to mention like our 18th win in 30 years or something like that. Yea..its kind of a big deal here at the Delta Gamma House. We like to win and we do it fairly and simply because we try out of our own free will! Our theme for our dance was Braveheart which of course was a hit with all the guys. Check out our video on youtube here. .
Saturday after the dance competition and Derby Day winner announcement Sigma Chi had a luau at their house complete with pig roast and a slip-n-slide on their back deck. Wonderful idea for a Saturday afternoon. Somehow I made it out without being thrown in the water or EX sunburned into my face(see photo below). I'm just lucky I guess.. ;)
Friday night before the dance competition Sigma Chi had US (a fabulously crazy rock band) at their house party. It was a great night of dancing and screaming of lyrics at the top of our lungs! Thursday and Friday night KA Fight Night was also going on. This is their philanthropy fundraiser of the year and all kinds of guys have boxing matches. Not quite my cup of tea to see guys fight and even bring blood but the company and music made up for it! Good times!
This week is slow school wise for me which is much appreciated. I even got to run home for the afternoon to pick up my dress for Old South this weekend (YAY) and to visit with my family for a bit. Life however has been extremely crazy lately.. too much for the blog though.
This weekend is going to be a blast!! I can not wait!!
All dressed up like Brave Heart for Derby Day..

Thursday I traveled on down to Starkville to accompany one of my very best friends in the whole world to his date party! It was a nice treat because we never get to see each other much and just don't talk like we used to. Anyhow it was a whole lot of fun seeing Jack and all of his friends and getting a peak into Starkville life. We really do run things a little different here in Ox. Pictures to come from this even because I didn't take my camera and the one picture I did take on my phone is terrible. No worries I'll just borrow one from FB when someone puts some on.
Friday I also played catch up with a few friends from high school. Skyylar and I stay in constant touch but I haven't seen Angileah in ages so it was good to share a fantastic meal at Harveys with them! We had planned on seeing "The Last Song" after dinner but believe it or not it was sold out.. I was disappointed to say the least. So we settled for a dessert run instead. This totally made up for the movie! Turtle cheesecake was amazing.. I especially loved the chocolate cheesecake bottom layer which will not surprise you if you know me any at all. I have a slight obsession with chocolate!
Saturday was a lazy day spent mostly with my Nanny and Mama. These two ladies mean more to me than anyone or anything in the world so to say the least it was a great day!
Sunday/Easter. The Easter Bunny came to see me. Although I am 20 years old he still loves me.. but my gifts have changed a little over the years. This year in my basket along with all the candy (including a chocolate bunny) was a fabulous new swim suit! I can't wait to try it out... Anyhow I started my day by getting all dressed up in my Sunday best. Every year we always get new Easter dresses. I love this and have always loved this since I was a little girl.. something about that first REAL springtime dress of the season just says happiness!Off to church I went.. late as usual.. I tried so very hard to be early this Sunday but time is never on my side. Our church was packed! I haven't seen it this full in ages.. I haven't been to my home church regularly since I graduated high school almost 2 years ago. (2 YEARS!! Wow I just realized how long I've been out of high school.. a bit scary!) But anyhow, isn't it crazy how everyone comes on Easter?! I am so very thankful for Easter and all it means. What a wonderful God we have!! After church we had some family over to eat Easter lunch. I am so very thankful for a good home cooked meal these days and big family meals are always elaborate!! The afternoon ended with a nap and packing of all my things to return to school..
And here I am.. I am completely unpacked. I attempted to study for my genetics test on Thursday but failed, Im becoming a horrible procrastinator. This is going to be a crazy busy week because I have two tests and this fabulous thing we like to call DERBY DAY! DG won last year and we'll have to work hard to hold our title this year but I know we can do it! I'll explain more later because my eyes keep trying to shut tonight... but I'll leave you with a scene from out Derby Day victory last year!
