Finally Slowing Down

After two extremely hectic weeks at Miss Arkansas Outstanding Teen and Miss Arkansas and then a week in Branson at Dance Nationals... I am HOME.  

There is nothing more invigorating than after long car ride and 3 weeks of hotel beds, crawling with your little buddy (Baylor) into your own bed with a cold air conditioner and your Scentsy Cupcake Smell.  It was so good to finally be home last night and know that I would wake up to my sweet Baylor and be able to make Mickey Mouse Waffles and chill at the house, all day.  Which is exactly what Molly Anne and I did today.  I got an Apple TV for Christmas - and it has literally been the best gift for lazy days!  I have enjoyed it so much this year.  We have been watching Pretty Little Liars and Desperate Housewives all day!  It has been so nice.

I thought I would recap the last 3 weeks for you because I know that some of you are completely lost and most are disappointed I have not been posting like I usually do.

My sister, Laura Leigh (15 - green above), won Miss Arkansas Outstanding Teen and will be competing in Miss America's Outstanding Teen in 2 weeks!  Yes - that means in 2 weeks I will be packing for 10 days in Orlando at Disney World.  If you know me at all... THIS IS NOT A PROBLEM!!  except the whole packing thing.

I am a little hesitant how 10 days in one bag will work.  We will figure it out :)  and I will keep you posted the whole way!  ( or will try to haha)

Then I went to Miss Arkansas and I am working on a week long video for it!  Sorry it is taking me so long... but I think I have this thing figured out now.

I had a great week at Miss Arkansas and tool from it a lot of memories, a lot of new friends, and an experience of a lifetime.  It was so much fun!
After the Miss Arkansas Pageant, my family packed up in my mom's truck and headed north.  My family and probably 300 other families were in Branson, Missouri for Showbiz Dance Nationals.  It was 5 long days full of incredibly talented little dancers.  Find me on Social Cam and you can watch several of the dancers that I videoed.  I am so proud of our Ms. Karen's Dance Studio Dancers.  They took home 5 first places, and the Overall Scored Dance!  So proud of them!!!








I have had some of the greatest 3 weeks of my life.  Spending time with my family makes me so happy.  When I am at school in Waco - I long to be here with them, and it is a blessing that I am getting to take this time to spend with them.

My cousin preached yesterday in Jonesboro at his church and this is what he said:

The way that we can daily worship God the most is be being obedient and having faith in his promises.  Wow!  We don't have to do anything except have faith him.

Sit on that and ponder it!
Abby.
