So you're from "Joisey?"

Yeah. I got that a lot this week. Why, you may ask? Because I just returned from my 8 day excursion to the South. Yes. The typical road trip crew, sans Nic, ventured to Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas this past week. We took some time to visit Jordan and Megan's families while driving, and eating, our way through the South.

Picture time! :]

New Orleans, Louisiana: Beignets and cafe au lait from Cafe du Monde!

Baton Rouge, Louisiana: A craw fish boil. SO GOOD.

Megan and I played golf with my "Wreck this Journal" while Jordan had his eye exam.

Abilene, Texas: I lost at Mousetrap. Yes, that's me in the cage.

Texas has a lootttt of land.

Arlington, Texas: I met my dearly missed friend, Delaine!! :]

Imitating the cat pictures in Barnes and Noble.

Hot Springs, Arkansas: Rolands barbeque. We definitely ate well!

Me on a trampoline! :]

Nic's House, Arkansas: The happy couple and the lonely, missing her friend Christen. Haha :].

Megan and I with KITTENS! :]

Somewhere, Arkansas: A horse that caused a lot of traffic on 40-E.

Somewhere, Tennessee: Me in the middle of the road because...

There was a wreck that held up a lotttttt of traffic for over an hour. Complete stand still.

Despite the accident, there was this beautiful sky :].

Conclusion of road trip: Lots of fun and God is faithful. Throughout this trip I learned about patience, personal prayer, and the power of prayer. The Lord continued to provide and bless me this past week. I am incredibly thankful.

And update: Summer goal ALMOST complete. 4 out of 5 states visited. Who's down for another trip!?

Who is this girl that keeps facebook messaging me?

This is a message for all those Regent bloggers who keep getting e-mails from me telling them to blog...

Hey! I'm Christen. I work with Undergrad Student Services and part of my job is to read your blogs, monitor content, and also encourage you throughout the week :]. I figured it would be helpful to know a little bit about who I am:

I'm 20.
I'm short.
Elephants are my favorite animal.
I am a Cinema Television major.
I think I want to be a producer?
I'm big on fitness and healthy choices.
Snowboarding is my passion.
Jesus is cool.
Oh wait, nevermind, he's the coolest.
My family lives in New Jersey. Yes, the Jersey Shore, and no we do not fist pump.
I have a habit of leaving cabinet doors open.
I love scrapbooking/making other creative pieces.
My biggest fear is getting lice.
I love adventures.
I have gone swimming in the lake under the Common's bridge.

I would love to hear feedback on what I can do to best serve the Regent blogging community. Are my blogging prompts helpful/inspiring? Do you like receiving the blogger e-mails on facebook?

Please let me know how I can support you and build this group of bloggers. I'm already seeing friendships form and my ultimate goal is to see this group really interact and support oneanother.

Welcome to the Palace...

I am moved in to my new apartment! Chelsea and I, with the help of our friends Micah and Nic, transported all of our stuff to our lovely townhouse that we are calling "The Palace."

After creating desks out of boxes and crates and going on a midnight Wal-mart run to get air mattresses, Chuck and I are pretty much set! :]

My little nook :].
Chuck's desk on the right, mine on the left.
Chuck's bed on the left, mine on the right.
Our living room. Not really organized yet :].
The kitchen!
