Saturday, March 15

...and it feels like home

today my bestest friend katie and i finished classes and piled into the car with all (basically every single one) of our school books, and a small little bag packed with necessities, and set out for an adventure. we didn't have a definite plan, but we just knew we had to get away from school. it's just been one of those weeks.

on our way out of chattavegas we hit up the bank and panera where i ordered 5 blueberry bagels, and 1 apple strudel bagel. after a pit stop at starbucks (as each random roadtrip calls for) we hit the road.

the quasi-plan was to spend the night at kelsey's house and end up sometime saturday in atlanta to visit levi and james, but other than that we had no plans. however, after a few resourceful phone calls on my part, doors just opened wide for a weekend spree filled with conversing, laughing, and [studying].

after the starbucks stop we drove an hour to adairsville, georgia, where we let ourselves in (with permission) to my friend kelsey's house. everyone was out, but we just plugged in our computers and worked on some stuff while watching cable [hallelujah] and resting on a real, honest-to-goodness couch. (don't get many of those at covenant) after everyone arrived home we perused wedding magazines and websites (as kelsey is recently engaged) and then enjoyed a tasty dinner of tortilla chips, chicken marinated in italian dressing and shredded, and a mixture of mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, topped of with fresh-from-the-oven brownies and edy's slow churned ice cream while watching "connie and carla" (my FAVORITE comedy). [sorry for the run-on sentence there]

the plan for tomorrow is wake up around 9:30 or 10 (seeing as it's already 2:10 am) and getting ready and leaving to go meet levi and james in ATL at about noon. i'm so excited to see them. it's been far too long since i have seen these brothers, and i am just dying to hug them!! :)

we get to hang out with the boys for 2 or 3 hours and then katie and i are going to find an amazing little ATL coffee shop and study our lives away all afternoon/evening, until about 9 when we are going to drop in on my dear friend sarah brown's family and crash on their floor until church in the morning (again with levi and james) then we'll come back to chatt.

i'm very excited about the prospect of this weekend. apparently tonight, however, there was a tornado around the downtown area, destroying the georgia dome, some of the high rise apartments, and the centennial olympic park.

anyway, it's time to sleep. i'll update later about how the weekend went.
