Nothin' but a God thing.

First off, Eric & I went to Arkansas recently for our cousin, Brooke's, high school graduation. She is going to be headed to college in the fall and we could not be happier for her!

Congrats Brookie!!

This is the best picture I could iphone was all the way zoomed in!

Eric & I have a thing for visiting unique coffee shops anytime we travel to a new place, so of course, we had to hit one up while in AR.

Right before we took this trip, I had finals, and this is what happened....
Oh yes, that would be my infamous lion's mane.
I'm pretty sure I was delusional. But hey, it paid off! 4 A's and 1 B babyyyy!
I will take it :)

On to the God thing that has recently happened in our lives...
So, thanks to some unfortunate circumstances on the subject of grad school, Eric & I had chosen to possibly make a move either here in DFW or to a different city, and go on with the next phase of our lives. I was making plans, he was making plans, our dogs were making plans...

And everything was set into motion.
Let's backtrack a little bit...for the past few months now, I have been praying and begging God to open a door or even just crack a window for me, and of course, nothing happened. Looking back, I think he was just trying to teach me the art of patience, which we all know, I definitely don't have. I waited and waited and waited as long as I could, until Eric and I finally gave in and chose to figure out where we needed to go next.
I should have put more faith in God, and I am kicking myself for it now. But about a week ago, the day  after we got back from our Arkansas trip, I got a call. And not just any call, but a call from the director of the UNT Speech Pathology Masters program. And she was actually asking me if I wanted a spot in the program. I was so shocked, that I couldn't speak and you could practically hear the crickets chirping in the background. I finally muttered, "oh my gosh".

Long story short, I talked to Eric that night and I prayed...hard. I finally felt that God had just opened that door for me and was nudging me to walk through it. Needless to say, Eric felt the same way and I called the director back the next day and told her I wanted the spot.

So, I guess I should say, go eagles, because I am officially starting grad school at UNT in the fall!!
I'm so excited and I can't wait to start this new adventure that is planned for Eric & I. And I am ready to see where this will take me.
I appreciate all the advice and prayers from everyone, and I am now looking forward to a relaxing summer before 2 years of grad school classes start!

Have a wonderful week everyone :)
