Bikes, Blues, and BBQ 2009!

This weekend was very busy!! Bikes, Blues, and BBQ weekend is always a fun weekend!! My roommate Ashley, friend Brittni, Dad, David, and Uncle Les all rode in the parade. It was so much fun! We threw out candy and waved a lot. It was Ashley's first time to ride in the parade and she really enjoyed it! On Friday night I babysat for the Campbell's and on Saturday night Ashley, Brittni, Lilly, and I all went down and looked at all of the pretty motorcycles. On Saturday after the parade we had some REALLY good BBQ!! It was called Big Boned BBQ. They had one tons of awards and I can definitely tell why!

This is the group before leaving to go to the parade!!

My mom, aunt, and granny all watched the parade on campus!

After church and going out to eat with family today my mom and I headed to the mall! I got a dress that I had been wanting from New York and Co.! I was so excited that it went on sale!! My mom actually bought it for me in this blue color and in the black and white color! I also got a really cute purse on sale, but unfortunately I can't find a picture of it online. It looks like it is made out of leather snake/alligator skin.

The Hogs play Texas A&M in the NEW COWBOYS stadium next weekend and the entire band is going!!! Ahhhhhhh I am so EXCITED! Everyone have a happy Monday tomorrow!!

Prayers Needed

A friend of mine, Tony Collins that is in the piccolo section with me is in need of prayer. Doctors found a brain tumor last semester (Spring 2009) and he had brain surgery to have it removed. He had to leave school for the entire semester and do chemotheray and radiation therapy. He was doing much better and got to return to school for the Fall 2009 term. He went into the doctor yesterday and they found another brain tumor. It's bigger than the last one and going deeper into his brain. He had to drop out of school and is going to Houston for surgery.
Please pray for him.

Celebrating my 19 years of life!!!

My family and I went bowling on Saturday night and went to Geraldi's, a local Italian restaurant to celebrate my birthday.Bowling with my family was so much fun!! My parents and aunt and uncle said that they hadn't bowled in years! It was pretty entertaining. My uncle Leslie even found his bowling ball and shoes from the league he was in from college!

The whole gang outside of Geraldi's.

Jessica made this bag for me to put my piccolo and band things in. The RMB stands for Razorback Marching Band. She is so crafty!

Taylor Swift!

I don't know if you guys watched the VMAs, but if you did I'm sure you saw what Kanye West did to Taylor Swift. In the middle of her accepting her award Kanye took the microphone from her and said that Beyonce had the best video of all time. It was so sad. But, then when Beyonce was accepting her award she let Taylor come out and finish accepting her award. That was very sweet of Beyonce!!

The picture below was taken about 3 years ago. Taylor wasn't "big" yet so the tickets to this little concert were only $5.00!! There were only about 100 people there. After the concert me and my friends waited in line for about 30 minutes to take a picture with her and get her autograph. I went 2 years later to one of her concerts and the person that gave me those tickets payed a lot more then $5.00. I just love her!!

Arkansas vs. Missouri State

Last Weekend the Razorbacks played Missouri State in Little Rock. I think the Little Rock games are really fun! The band takes charter buses down to Little Rock on Friday afternoon. The picture above is of my friends Kelsey, Kenna, and I in our hotel room. We had a few hours to hang out before we had to be ready for the RazorRock pep rally that was held on the river.

Rachel smiling big!
This was taken while the band was parading to the Traveler's baseball stadium from the RazorRock pep rally.
We played the national anthem at the Traveler's vs. Natural's baseball game.
We had to wait in line for what seemed like forever to get dinner at the baseball game. These are my friends Allison, Rachel, Tracy, and Jamie. They are all so much fun to be around!
Papa Harold and me at the Traveler's game. My parents rode with him to Little Rock to go to the Traveler's game and the Razorback game. I was so glad that he got to come!

Ashley's grandparents live in Camden, so we decided to go visit them after the game since we didn't have school on Monday. We ate A LOT of good food, watched t.v., and rode 4-wheelers!!
Me, Ashley, and her cousin Michael about to ride!!
I love 4-wheelers!!
