Looking for a good book?

Hey friends! Emmy here.

Last week I got a great book at the library called "A Voice in the Wind" by Francine Rivers. (It's the first one in a series called  "Mark of the Lion".) It's about a Roman servant girl, during early Christianity times, and how she clings to God and her faith, to get her through tough times. I'm not finished with it yet, but so far, it's a good one!

Have a fantastic rest of the week!

How is everyone's week? We want to hear from you all!

Good evening, friends! It's Emmy! This week at my school, it's Homecoming week! (also called spirit week.) There's a theme for every day, so everyone dresses with the theme to show their school spirit! Today was "Twisted Tuesday" and tomorrow is "Twin Day". It's fun to see everyone's outfits and creations that they come up with!

Also this evening, Libby went to a mixer for a social service club there at Harding. She said it was great! Hope college is a blast, Libby!

So how are you guys? How has your year been so far? What have y'all been up to?

Send us a message or comment below! Have a wonderful rest of the week!

Coming to you live from Arkansas!

I am so sorry for being so hit-and-miss with my posting....I guess I'm not a very faithful blogging pal. I am now at college! I miss my family VERY much, but I'm really enjoying my experience here so far. It's a great school and I also have a great job in the Admissions Office! The whole schedule thing really agrees with me as well. Every day except for Tuesday I am finished by one, so that is all together fine with me!
Two exciting things from today: 1) I gave a tour of the campus to a girl and her dad who were visiting. 2) I went to a thrift store where clothes were a quarter, shoes and purses were 50 cents, and books were 25-50 cents!
Also, before I forget: does anyone do Pinterest? I just started yesterday. I must say it might be detrimental to me! ;) It is the most fun site ever! Pretty much people post pictures from blogs they like on "Pinboards" and you can go through and make categorized boards and look at pictures from other people's. Then you can pin them to your own. I am having so much fun with it! Check it out!

This is what you can get at a thrift store for $7.75:
5 shirts
3 skirts
1 pr. basketball shorts
2 pairs of shoes
1 purse
2 pairs of earrings
4 books
1 CD
1 silly wall hanging for a gag gift :)
1 basket

I think "Paws Inn" will be my new Saturday morning hang-out! haha!
I hope you all have a lovely Saturday afternoon. Go enjoy the outdoors or spend time with your family and watch some college football! Many blessings, friends!

Wow, what a week! (and now for a 3-day weekend!)

Hello friends! It's Emmy!
Well, I've started ballet classes at my new studio! 
I am exhausted after this week of dancing and schoolwork. It's been a few months since I've been in a ballet class, so I had some sore muscles the first couple of days.
But it was a good week, and I'm super excited to announce that I will be a part of the senior division of a company called Colorado Youth Ballet! My first rehearsal with CYB will be Saturday afternoon! :D

Also on Saturday, we have some dear friends from San Antonio, coming to stay with us for a little bit, over Labor Day weekend!

And last but not least, this Saturday, college football! It's game time! The Oklahoma Sooners (our favorite team, because we're from Oklahoma) will be playing their first game of the season against Tulsa! BOOMER SOONER!!!
I hope everyone has a fun, safe, and blessed Labor Day weekend!
