Also on Saturday [Valentine's Day], my friend Josh Koontz was married to the beautiful Susan Adams. It was a wedding unlike any I have been to, because it was in the IN Capitol Building, but it was very nice. Josh, Jessie, and I have only been good friends for maybe 4 years, but we have done a lot together. We met at camp, when he was a district youth pastor. Somehow, Jessie and I never managed to have youth pastors at camp so we connected with Josh and a few others. We had his youth group convinced or an entire weekend that we were triplets. RIDICULOUS.
After the wedding, Jessie and I joined Mom & Dad we visited Joni and Leah. That baby is growing so fast, I cannot believe it. She will be crawling so soon! We left Joni's before 7 and stopped for dinner at Chick-fil-A (yum yum!) The whole restaurant was covered in red, pink, and white balloons. There were 2 waiters in suits to seat us after we placed our orders, and they gave every girl a carnation. The tables had red table cloths, and there were roses in vases on each table, and doilies and little paper hearts. It was so cute! As we were finishing up, another waitor brought out free dessert! Meanwhile, the "eat mor chikin" cow was roaming around in a suit as well, taking pictures with children. It was hilarious!
This week we have mid-terms, which means tomorrow is my last day of badminton class! I intend to continue going to the gym each Tuesday and Thursday morning, but it will be hard to not stay in bed, because I won't have class until 12:05. I'm pretty busy, but not too stressed yet. I'm realizing that I am halfway through my second year of college, which means I am almost halfway through college! Wowie.
Yesterday, I had lunch with my friend Bonaventure. He is a funny guy! He is so interesting too. He is a refugee from Rwanda, and I believe he spent most of his youth fleeing for safety, from whatever and whomever. After dinner we were both headed to the library, and Bonaventure showed me "his office" - a desk and end table he has claimed in the corner of the 24-hour study lounge. He leaves his books, laptop, and study material on this desk 24/7, haha! He is a nursing major, and keeps very busy, studying very hard. I laughed and said, "Bona, all you need is a coffee pot!" Well lo-and-behold, he scattered a pile of books, and uncovered a coffee warmer!
