Exciting Weekend!!!

So after a rigorous week of studying and preparing a talk for church, I am happy to say that I am done with all of my finals. I have one more tiny presentation for my event class, but that should be no big deal. For any of you that were wondering, a 2 hour essay final where you have to write four 3-4 page essays on law cases is really not fun, in fact it is actually quite painful. We were pressed for time and it was really funny to see everyone in the row stop every now and then to shake out their hand before continuing on with the painful writing. But I am now done!!!! Tori and I are headed to Dublin today for a funfilled weekend. Then even more exciting is the big news that Mom will be here on Sunday!!!! We however have really bad timing, so Tori and I are scheduled to speak in church the very morning that she will be arriving so we will not be able to meet her in Shannon. (Sorry Mom) She will be on her own to get to Galway, and then to meet us at the church. I am soooo excited to see her, and to spend the next two weeks traveling around before we had back home to the states.

My best Friend!!

I love all of my sisters, but there is a very strong bond between Megan and I. She is my best friend and I am so glad that I have her in my life. It is so fun to grow up with a twin, I always had a friend to do things with, someone to stay up late and talk to, someone to help me with my clothes and hair. And even though we are apart more now, the time that we get to spend together is still just as special. I remember many times when I had to say goodbye to Carson as I went off to school with Megan. I would try to control my tears so we could leave just to get in the car to find Megan there crying even harder because she was sad for me. She is the best friend anyone could ask for. I love you Megan.
