Williamsburg!

Well I've returned from my week long vacation with mom at Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia. I spent the whole week working on an 18th century gown (sewn completely by hand...no machine..all by me). It's almost complete but I still have a little more work I need to do on it. I want to finish it so when I go to Ohio tomorrow I can show my grandparents...

The rest of the week was spent hanging out with Amy, Brooke, Katie, Sarah, Amanda, and Evan. It seemed like every night was spent doing something with someone. I had a wonderful time though...but I felt really bad about one thing...I didn't see Amanda until Katie came on the weekend. We've been friends since one of my first days in Williamsburg...and I just got so carried away with everything that has been going on, and other things I was doing that I didn't even send her a text message..I apologized to her immediately when I saw her, but I think her feelings were hurt...and I feel bad about that...Sometimes I get severe tunnel vision and don't think about many other things...I'll try and figure out how to make it up to her..

Brooke is leaving for Egypt very very soon. I can't wait to hear all about it (and to visit with Amy!). Aside from my goals of getting my MLitt...I've been given a very important job to do while in Scotland. Almost a matter of life and death. I must find Amy a Scottish Husband. I know. Right? I just need to find a hybrid of a Mr. Thornton (North and South) and Mr. Darcy (Pride and Prejudice)... and Scottish. Totally doable. Yes. Will do!! :)

It's just over a month until I leave...almost a month exactly actually. I've been home from CW since Sunday. I've spent the past 4 days reading the Twilight series. I just finished Breaking Dawn and I feel like a big nerd. Oh Well. Mindless reading before I read the other books that should have been my top priority. (I can't help but to love silly fiction...). Plus the guy that will play Edward Cullen (the main male character) in the movie is.... lovely.

That's enough posting for now..I'll post pictures of my gown etc later...it's not done..so I don't feel like taking pictures of it just yet.
