I apologize for not posting much lately, I've been extremely sick with what started as an allergic reaction and turned into the flu, but it seems we're on the upside now!

Well I officially have less than 3 months until I graduate. Hallelujah!

Had a lovely chat with my best friend, who was my roommate in college. It was so nice to catch up and encourage each other. Actually, it was David who first prophesied that her and her now-husband would get married. hahaha I remember the three of us sitting in the Joust freshman year, and he just blurted it out. Tristen and I just stared at him wide-eyed as if to say, "Where on earth did that come from?" Sure enough, Tristen and Brandon were wed the end of their Junior year. :)

Speaking of David, I'm proud to announce that the US Army has approved David's burial in Arlington National Cemetery. I got chills when I read that! Although the circumstances aren't quite what we would choose, I'm proud that he is being so highly honored as he should be.

To all of you who signed the petition to keep licensure for Cosmetologists/Barbers in the state of Indiana, THANK YOU! Our voices were heard and we did it! This is what was reported on the bill:

Rep. David Wolkins killed HB1006 Wednesday, January 25th. He cited the outcry against the bill by the cosmetology industry. For all who signed, wrote their representatives, attended the hearing and the rally: THANK YOU. We all had a hand in making this happen.

This also makes it less likely that any other state will attempt to pass such a bill. Thanks again for helping to make a difference! :)

So I've had many-a-request to supply a reading list of recommended books. I believe that will be my next post. In case you were unaware, next to writing, I LOVE reading. It's an addiction, really. If I have any dream room some day, it would look a little something like this:

Or this:

So to ensure I leave you with something, I have Slow Cooker recipes! My in-laws were so gracious to give us a Crock-pot (well, two, actually. It came with a little mini one!) for Christmas so I found some recipes for us to try out. Here are a few websites for all your Crock-pot needs!
