Show Us Your Life {ALMA MATER}

Kelly's Korner has a great weekly blog called "Show Us Your Life." I've been wanting to start joining in on the fun, and this week's SUYL was Alma Maters. I thought this would be a great time to reminisce and get some of my old fashioned pics scanned into a digital format. We have come a long way in 5 years! ;) Seriously though, I really wish digital cameras were a big thing when I was in many more memories would have been documented!!

I went to Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas to major in Education. It is one of the best universities in TX for those who want to be a teacher, and that's what I had wanted to be since I can remember. I loved that Huntsville was a smaller town (coming from a very big Houston) yet it still wasn't too far from home or bigger, more happening places. We probably made a trip to the Woodlands for a little more excitement at least once a week!
My first year I roomed with my high school bestie, Mollye, in the dorm Jackson-Shaver. Great memories!!
I joined a small, local sorority called Sigma Lambda Epsilon, where I made many more great friends and memories!!
After my freshman year, I wanted to live in apartments instead of the dorms which meant I had to get a job. (boo!) I loved living in apartments, but I did not like moving to a new place every year (thank you grown-up life for being more consistent.)

I graduated in December 2006 and moved to Waco where I got a job teaching 2nd grade and married my hubby 2 years later! :)

Dearest Memories:
- Move-in Day & Mollye's memorable bathroom experience
- $5 pizza Mondays watching Smallville with Christie
- Shenanigans and the shadow box
- Living in the trailer with Steph
- Actually being consistent at working out
- Student Teaching
- A couple very strange different weddings
- Being dead LAST during graduation ceremonies (I got the loudest applause though) ;)
And plenty more that will pop into my head as soon as I hit "publish post"

I am SO glad I went to SHSU! Eat 'Em Up Kats!!


  1. I think two of the dearest memories BETTER be the rug doctor incident! AND the night we went to Wal-Mart for boxes and they didn't have any we took care of that! LOL
    Why are our craziest memories from that place?!

  2. Haha..those definitely make the list too!

  3. Stopping by from Kelly's Korner! I know a lot of people who went to Sam! I just recently graduated from Texas A&M and also majored in Education! New follower! :)

  4. Hello fellow Bearkat and education major!! I graduated in 2007. Stopped by from Kelly's Korner.

  5. I was wondering how Jackson-Shaver was. I am going to be living there this fall as a freshman and I've only heard bad things.

  6. I'm sorry I'm just seeing this Kelsey. Well, I was there back in 2002, so I'm not so sure how it is now. It was fine when I was there, but to be honest I would advise to stay in an all girl's dorm on campus if possible. We had guys that would literally pee down the stairs! Gross!! If you can't switch, I'm sure you'll make the best of it. Good luck at Sam, I LOVED it there!!! :)
