Some Updates

Hi everyone! It appears my slacker tendencies are still in full effect, so I apologize :( But I've actually been too busy to blog, so I guess that's good, right? I figured I would pop in today and give you guys some updates on what's been happening in our lives:

First of all, I'm starting to feel more settled here in Austin - yay! I'm getting better with directions, which is nice, but most importantly, I'm starting to actually do things with friends! The girls that Andrew works with have been so great about reaching out to me, as have the girls from our Missional Community. I'm SO thankful! We also recently had Becca and her fiancé over for a movie night, which was so nice and relaxing.

On a less fun note, I have been sick (or something) for about a week now. I say "or something" because everyone here has tried to convince me that's it's allergies, but I've never experienced allergies this bad. My throat is raw, my nose is running, I lost my voice, I can't stop coughing... It's miserable! I've tried a bunch of different OTC medicines, but nothing is working. Any suggestions???

Lastly, I have a new addiction/obsession/true love/whatever. It goes by the name of Game of Thrones and it is incredible. Andrew begged me to watch it with him until I finally gave in, and I'm so glad I did! Yes, it is (very) intense at times, but if you are willing to push through that, you will be rewarded with the most complicated and brilliant story probably ever created. My absolute favorite character is Daenerys Targaryen - not only is she stunningly beautiful (see below), but she is a heroine for the enslaved and a woman who is making her own dreams come true by not giving up.

Well, that's all for now, folks. It's time for me to get out of bed and start the day. Thanks for checking in! :)


  1. Allergies are HORRIBLE in Austin! My husband has been fighting them pretty badly for the past three weeks and is FINALLY going to the doctor for something stronger than OTC stuff! I'd recommend that... So glad you're starting to settle in, here! I absolutely love Austin! :)

  2. Not posting because you're out having fun (even if you're sick... ugh!) is the best reason to not post. so glad to see this blog of yours!

  3. I live just down the highway in San Antonio.... I battle allergies like no-ones business lol; I had been sick for going on a week with the same symptoms you described, and taking my meds and OTC meds as well. I finally got checked out cause it's really no fun, and turns out what started out as allergies is now a full blown sinus infection. Z-pak is working wonderfully, I'm feeling better, and I no longer sound like a man lol. Go get checked out ASAP!! Hope you feel better soon!! -♥Valerie
