Thankfullness, Question & Excitement

First of all I want to thank Sara from Pearls, Curls & a Southern Girl for awarding me the Social Butterfly Award! Thank you so much Sara! I absolutely adore your blog, think you are such a sweetheart and have been blessed with many creative talents!

Second, I want to do a giveaway in September or October, once I'm back to school and settled into a routine. I was thinking of doing a Montana themed giveaway, to give y'all a chance to win some fun stuff local to my community and the great Big Sky state; what do y'all think about this? Good idea, bad idea - I'd love your input!

Third, please go sign up for Gracie Beth's swap at Preppy Southern Princess! It's college football themed, and I think it will be a lot of fun! I'm so excited for football season - it's my favorite time of year!

I have my internship all set up for this fall, except for the paperwork, and I'm getting really excited for it! I'll miss my time in the Congressman's office, especially his staffers - they are so much fun! But, hopefully I'll be able to intern in his Washington D.C. office next summer; that would be a dream come true for me! My internship this fall will actually extend over the full academic year; it is a minimum 300 hour internship at a nonprofit for my nonprofit administration minor. I will be working for Special Olympics Montana once all the paperwork is squared away; I am so excited! It will be so different, but I think, and hope, in a positive way!

I only have two classes to complete for that minor after this semester, so hopefully by the end of spring semester 2010, I will be completely finished with it! After this fall semester, I will have my history minor finished; I'm very excited about that too! I still have a lot of work to do on my major, but that's because my major has changed seven times, literally! I have too many interests, my Mama says, but they've all been related majors, so it hasn't been too hard to work everything out!

I'm getting so excited for the new school year; I head back to Montana a week from tomorrow! I've gotten most of my school supplies, new fall boots and jeans along with a few new transition tops for the changing of seasons! I love autumn and am so excited for late September, early October when all the leaves start changing and it cools down enough to wear sweaters every day! Of course I'm excited for recruitment and football season too! The GRIZ have their first game on September 6 and I'm hoping for another season of dominance of the Big Sky conference! I'm also excited to watch my beloved Crimson Tide on television and Matthew's Longhorns - Texas does play some really great football and I love their quarterback! Colt McCoy, along with Tim Tebow from those Gators down in Florida, make really positive role models in today's society and I'm happy my 8th grade brother looks up to gentlemen like them!

I hope y'all have a thankful and thoroughly wonderful Thursday; I know I am! Please let me know y'all's opinions on the giveaway idea; I really am interested to see if there would be any interest in something like that, if not I'll have to come up with a new idea! Oodles of love to each and everyone of y'all! ♥
