Back From Fall Break

I haven’t written in here in forever! I’m sorry I’m not as good about it as I used to be but I’m going to try and be better..not for any of my “readers” because I’m pretty sure I don’t have any of those haha! BUT I do love writing for me and playing around on here is always fun so I’ll just try and do that. Writing has always been a great wya for me to make since of my thoughts, so if nothing else I hope I do that.

This past weekend I was in Estes Park, CO with 6 of my best friends! It was an amazing trip and I loved showing them Wind River Ranch, a place Whitney and I have grown up at each summer. I couldn’t have been more blessed by the time we shared there.

We were able to relax, hike and just play. It was such a blessed trip that I will never forget. 🙂 Thanks to my amazing friends, CC, BriAnn, Cara, Whitney, T Derr, Brianna, I LOVE YALL.

Rainy Morning Bliss

I LOVE rainy mornings in our new house! Surprisingly enough we have had quite a few already this year. The car port is right outside my window so I get to hear the rain trickle down on the metal and snuggle up even more under the covers:) What is it about the rain that’s so soothing? I think I like the after math the best. The coolness in the air and the fresh smell of wet grass. Everything has been washed clean through its presence…a good reminder of what Christ has done. Washed me clean:) Thankful this morning.

Senior Year??? Already??

I can not believe it is the first Friday of Senior Year. My last year in school? This is crazy! I’ve been so busy I haven’t had time to check into this little place of blogging but I do hope I get back into the habit because it’s something I enjoy. If nothing else this blog is fun for me to play with. Anyway 🙂 Whitney, BriAnn and I have moved into the greatest house on earth. The Phossil. When I say “greatest” I mean tiny, adorable, old, creaky, out-of-the-roof-utility-bills, front porch kitty, house. (Might I add, against the will of every other Baylor girl, I have poured water on it in hopes it goes away). But this house is already feeling like home. Whitney, BriAnn and I each have found ourselves renewed and filled with joy after a summer of different adventures. I believe God has guided our hearts together for

“…for such a time as this.” Esther 4:14

I know in my own heart He has done greater things than I could have imagined with just these last few months as I have been available and seeking Him every morning and through out the day.

“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13

My morning prayer today is simple. That He would continue to be at the front of my mind and that I would not be able to deny His love for me. God I pray today you remind me again how much you love me. Let me ever aware of my poverty and bring me to a place of humility. I ask all of this in Jesus name.

Getting back into the “swing a’ things!”

I am so happy to FINALLY be writing to y’all! This post is way over due but I’ll try and fill y’all in a little bit on what has been going on. Really quick, this morning I was able to get up and head to the Katy Trail…shocker! hehe and I ran my 4 miles! Such an amazing morning. Yesterday at 4PM on the Katy Trail a walk started called “Carry the Load”. It is a walk that honors veterans and those who passed during service. Men (and women) were walking with their army packs on and some in full uniform, through the night until later this afternoon. Amazing.

Whitney, BriAnn and I have moved out of our apartment and Waco and will be moving into a house for Senior year..thrilled!! It’s going to be a great year!

Summer so far has been pretty crazy and I feel like I’m finally getting into a routine. Next Monday I start my internship with Texas De Brazil. I’m so excited but I’m also nervous! I have no idea what to wear or expect! I am so happy though because in a few weeks I’ll be headed to Denver with the team for some kind of event! I love traveling and I’m THRILLED to be going. Every summer wonderful opportunities seem to come my way like this. Last year I was able to go to, Malibu, Orlando, Jackson Hole, NC, and Estes Park. This summer I’ll be headed to Denver, Boston, Rhode Island, and Estes Park. I am so so thankful for each opportunity! Denver is with my internship and the rest are with family or friends.

Today will be bliss! We are all just hanging out by the pool and relaxing. I’m going to enjoy time being with family today and remember all of the people who sacrificed so much for me to do so. Sorry this post is so short and random! Many more coming soon:) Happy to be home and getting into the summer mindset.

Beautiful Dallas Morning

Good morning everyone! Today is going to be absolutely beautiful!! I’m having a little cup of coffee before a morning walk with my Mom. Why is spring so perfect? seriously?? It is so gorgeous and my FAVORITE time of the year. Everything is alive and blossoming. When I grow up I need to find a forever spring kind of place to live. Sunshine all the time. This week I have been pretending like I’m done with school which is probably a terrible idea for when I dive back into finals this next week….ew. BUT I can almost taste summer, especially mornings like this one. I am so thankful for my time at home to recharge and just be. My family is the greatest part of my life so I love being with them…missing Whitney though:) It’s going to be a great weekend!

I hope this weekend you get out and enjoy yourself! Head to a park, see a play, go swimming, just do something for YOU! 🙂

Tone It Up!

I wanted to do a quick post to fill everyone in on my new endeavor:) It’s a program called ToneItUp! with trainers Katrina and Karena! It is absolutely amazing! They have a whole nutrition plan along with daily workout challenges! I’m in love. I just love the motivation and the community feel they have created. It’s so important to me to stay healthy and fit! I’ve loved learning more and more about the nutrition side of fitness and health. K and K are truly an inspiration and they make it easy to stay on track with positivity! Here are the girls in a little video they did to pump everyone up for Bikini season!

Quick side note: I’m home for a 4 day weekend! We had DIA yesterday and today I had no classes so Wednesday I came home with my Dad after he was a guest speaker in one of my classes! I’ve been able to hit up Katy Trail, White Rock and in a little while I’ll be at Northpark. Oh how I love home.

Is it summer yet?

<—-My parents ran into Brady Heslip last night at the Mavs game! Such true fans to get a pic! 🙂

I am SO ready for summer. This semester has been one of my hardest by far and I can’t WAIT to be poolside in Dallas. I feel like I haven’t been able to see anyone this semester with my class schedule and work load:( I’m sorry friends! Next year Whitney, BriAnn and I are moving into a precious littler house we’ve had our eye one since Freshman year. And all my best friends are our neighbors so hopefully I can make up for being MIA:)

—>Nike wants to use my picture from Maui in their “counts” campaign! You’ll see it on their instagram and website soon!

I have a few exciting opportunities for this summer that I won’t share till they are set in stone but I am thankful for the kindness of friends and family who have been looking for jobs and internships!

With this being Holy Week I am really trying to focus on all God has to say to me. It’s only Tuesday and he has already spoken very clearly to me. I hope that you are walking with Jesus to the cross this week. That, to me, is what makes Easter all the more amazing. The journey to the cross, and the hope we have in Jesus! This Sunday is my favorite of all and I am SO excited to spend it with my beautiful family. Including Papa and Gramma!

<—–Tonight is Late Night @Monmouth! Come support Pi Phi & Kappa with our Charity Water Goal!

This is kinda a scatter brained post but I have SO much to be excited for and SO many goals & things I want to accomplish this summer! Summer is my FAVORITE time of year…well Spring is tied with summer but the freedom to create your own schedule and everything in the summer is by far my favorite thing. Not to mention fun trips usually pop out of no where for the Warrens.

Post Hawaii

Hawaii was amazing. I am seriously considering moving there, specifically Maui. Truly my heaven on earth. Thing have been quick to pick up in Waco since being back, interviews for internships, exams, spring has sprung! The weather is gorgeous. Lots of changes happening but this is my favorite time of the year. The promise of summer. Ah I just love this time of year. I have been sick this weekend but I am praying it’s just a 24 hr thing and that it won’t hold me back from the week ahead, lots going on!

Here are some pictures from Hawaii, I’ll try and do a more detailed post with stories and such from the trip soon, I am in denial that I’m back.
