John and I were not together this year for Thanksgiving...but we each had a fun time with our families, and look forward to being together next year!!

My family went to my Aunt Laurie's house who lives in Greenville, NC. She is working on her Doctorate at ECU. We had a yummy lunch on Thanksgiving, and had fun shopping on Black Friday!

My Black Friday shopping consisted of getting 2 seasons of The Office at Target, then hitting up some outlet malls near my Aunt's house...found a few good deals there- got a pair of crocs for 7 bucks! I also got some Christmas shopping done! It was a great Holiday weekend! I am not looking forward to these last few weeks of school, which will consist of one final, one paper, one anotated bibliography, and juries...but I am looking forward to my church's Contemporary Christmas Music Night called Glorious..which is one week from tonight!!

I was so excited John could come up this past weekend for the USC-Florida game!! We had such a fun weekend! We drove up to Charlotte on Thursday, and went to Dan's (John's Cousin) CD release concert at UNCC. We went to dinner with Jon and Jenna Rouleau before and to the concert with was so good to see them!! The next morning we did some wedding stuff in town, and then headed back to Columbia, because I had to go to a Pippa concert for one of my theory classes--this was the weekend highligh for John...ha JK.

I took John to a fun place after the concert called Cupcake. It is so good. They have every kind of cupcake imaginable!! We got oreo and turtle. You can check out the rest of their flavors HERE

Saturday we headed to the tailgate my church does, and then to the game! I was so proud of South Carolina--they played really well! The atmosphere was so great...this was probably my favorite USC game EVER and I'm so glad John was there with me! We honored the military at this game and had an awesome half-time show with a fly-over!
The students get a stamp to be able to get in to the student right after I got mine stamped, I pressed it on John's--it came out pretty well :)

This is my friend Mandy--she loves football as much as I do and I have really enjoyed going to the games with her

Tim Tebow warming up

In other news--we are so thankful for the Lord's provision in John's job. He started Thursday!
