NCSU vc Wake Forest

Well that Pack finally showed up to play! After quite the embarrassing display of football last weekend against Virginia, it was nice to cheer a game where we were actually scoring points! What a long weekend it has been. Friday, Mere, Kyleigh and I all cheered a Women’s basketball game against Wofford, which the ladies won, and then headed home for some much need down time. Kyleigh and Meredith had to be at the Men’s game that night and I napped all day and then cleaned and got ready for my Momma and brother (who I hadn’t seen since summer and I think he is a foot taller) and Ms. Kendy and Scotty. Once we were all together we headed out to Carolina Ale House, because lets be honest, no family visit is complete without it!

Saturday was a busy one. After the 3rd quarter wrapped up 3 stunts groups from small had to leave to football game to head over to Reynolds coliseum to cheer the women’s basketball game against Auburn. Kind of funny since Chuchi goes to Auburn! The Pack ended up with the win for both sporting events and I am pretty sure I felt a range of every emotion that day! After it was a quick dinner and then straight to bed for this girl.

This morning I got to hang out with Buster and the boys and then enjoy lunch at El Cerro with everyone. We said quick goodbyes and I came home and crawled in bed with Mere so we could get on Pinterest, watch Awkward and Jersey Shore and even take a little power nap. Who needs a boyfriend when you can a best friend who will put up with you crawling in her bed to relax!? Her too sweet boyfriend sent her an edible arrangement of chocolate covered strawberries and apples, which she shared with me because she is the best. He won serious brownie points, one might think it would be difficult to be single and have a best friend with the perfect relationship (although she gets mad when I say that) but it really works out to my advantage sometimes! Especially because its long distance (major props to them) so I always have someone to cuddle with if I’m feeling lonely. I honestly don’t know how the girl puts up with me.

After our power nap we got ready to try out a new church. I’ve been there before, but was overwhelmed with the amount of people there, but we tried out a new time that is directed toward college students. The message was great and very simple, put your trust in God. Even if he doesn’t give you all the answers, if you trust Him completely you will benefit in the end. As a girl who is type A and always has to have a plan and the answers this is something I struggle with every day as a Christian. Putting all my faith in God and knowing that he is going to do with me what he sees fit can seem daunting because I like to be in control over myself and know my next move, but I need to remember that isn’t always the case and if I have faith eventually it will all play out.

Now I am preparing for the week, cleaning up and waiting for dinner to be finished. Tonight is all about doing a little work and watching Revenge and The Walking Dead! I feel like every Sunday I can’t help but sing that Craig Morgan song, What I Love About Sunday. I’m done with exams until finals, so this should be a better week then the last. Hope everyone has enjoyed their day as much as I have!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

-Proverbs 3:5-6

I’m posting from home sweet home! Look at that adorable face, I’ve missed him sooooo much!

SInce it is Labor Day weekend, I took the train home from Raleigh after all my classes and the wonderful Emmy picked me up from the train station! After a quick nap because I swear traveling exhausts me, I turned on the NC State vs. Tennessee game. Let me tell you if has not been pretty to watch! Currently we are losing 😦 My brother, dad, papa and uncle uncle mike (otherwise known as my papa’s brother) are at the game right now and I am so jealous! I was hoping to go with them originally, but sadly they left Charlotte this morning at like 7 am and I couldn’t miss my Friday classes. 

I stopped into Brixx (obviously it is mandatory to visit the place you work when you come back to town) and ordered a pizza at the bar and watched the game some more. I love all the people I work with, so it was fun to catch up with them! 

Something that amazes me is how apparently approachable a girl sitting by herself is. As I was sitting at the bar watching the game, a guy came in and sat down a couple seats away, he then noticed my NC State apparel and started talking to me about the game and school. He told me he graduated from UNC Chapel Hill and asked if I ever went to the State Fair. he then proceeded to tell me we should go together…

Umm I don’t even know you’re name…weird. Then he asked where I lived (never acceptable)

Then he asked me for my number! I said “Sorry, I don’t give out my number.” How awkward is that!

Anyway, I then quickly paid for my meal and left as soon as I could!

Remember how last week I told you I was really excited about something that was coming up? Welllll… if you follow me on Instagram, you know that I had a visitor last weekend…

This sweet boy is Cullen 🙂 We met through Meredith and I am leaving bright and early in the morning tomorrow to go to his house for the weekend and meet his family! I’m really excited, I know I just saw him last week, but I have to take my opportunities to visit while cheerleading is not quite in full swing yet!

Does anyone have any fun Labor Day plans?

Cullen lives on the lake, so I am looking forward to being out on the water and going on the jetskis! 

Enjoy your weekend y’all and I’ll be back probably on Monday with an update on how meeting the parents went 😉
