My Family

I am hanging out at the house tonight and am just missing my family. They are such amazing people and God has truly blessed me with having them in my life and being a part of molding me into the person that I am. I decided to put up some of my favorites of us and my baby nephew Brady Jack! I miss him a lot too. I haven't seen him since he was a month old :( he is getting so big and can't wait to see him and Meghan and David (I guess I have to see them in order to see Brady haha) Well here is my family I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!!

This is my Mom, Me, Meghan, and Mary at Meghan's baby shower in Denver City. My Dad is so lucky to have such amazing women in his life! :)

Meghan, Mom, and Me at Mary's wedding. See Meghan we all kind of look similar! haha

Mary and I on the train to Lyle to check out a school. She was so great on that trip and helped me to get everywhere... so sorry I didn't go to that school! My bad!

This is my Father.... Dad Cam enough said. My Dad is always trying to embarass us in one way or another and the only thing he does is just make us love him more for his craziness.. (with a little embarassment at times thrown in but you got to love it!)

Brady Jack Azam our newest little edition

Brady when he was first born on June 30, 2008

Brady at one month... getting bigger

Brady now at almost 3 months.. Geeze he has gotten so big! He is going to be all grown up by the time I get to see him again.. (not really Meghan he is going to be little forever!)

This is my all time favorite picture. This is my Grandma (my Dad's mom) meeting Brady for the first time. It brings tears to my eyes everytime I see it. She is such an amazing woman of faith and love and perseverance. I love her so much and I don't get to see her very much either so the times I get to see pictures and hear her voice are the most precious to me.

Meet The Interns

Texas State Dietetic Interns
Minus a few! :)
This is from left to right... Jacly, Jenn, Me, Hector, and Megan. The missing ones are Lauren K, Lauren M, and Casey. Today we went to a conference in Austin for Obesity Awareness Week where a Doctor from India spoke. It was really good, very smart people with very confusing questions. haha. Jenn is the one that I have been the closest to throughout this whole thing. So, she gets another picture! :)

Being an Intern

So, this week I started my dietetic internship. I am starting in my community rotation, and my first one was at Meals on Wheels and more. It was so good. That company was so amazing and I am proud to have been apart of it for just a short time. This rotation was really short. It was only a week long :( wish it was longer. So, I got to write some nutrition education handouts for the clients, look up legislation, sustainable foods, hand out the food to the volunteers, got to deliver meals, and go to a meeting for TKHA (I think) it is basically people from all around Texas in different areas of expertise talking about the legislation and actions being taken for children to learn about nutrition. It was really cool to see things happening and what all can be done. Anyways.. it sum it up I loved it. I have learned so much so far and it was only my first week. I am still a little apprehensive of my grad school classes... hope I am smart enough haha.... Monday will be the test of it!! Well usually I would still be at my rotation but Ike has changed that. The office closed at 1:30 to prepare for everything. There are at least 3000 evacuees that came to Austin so they have a lot to deal with. San Marcos is supposed to get high winds and rain with the possibilities of tornadoes. I really hope not! So, everyone just be praying for everyone that is going to be affected by the hurricane and Amy if you are reading this I really hope you don't die! :) jk but please make sure that you keep me up to date how you and Geoff are and the weather in Houston! I have so much more to say but that is all for now! I am tired.. being a big girl is hard! haha

Living in San Marcos so far...

Today was my first day of orientation for my dietetic internship. It went good I could possibly get a little overwhelmed within the next couple days but we will just have to wait and see what emotions come out :) Well since I have been to San Marcos I have been visited by two of my best friends Chelsea and Laura. They are so great that they have come and visited. Laura unfortunately was not feeling her best and had to leave early and you will see why... Poor thing. But I have also got involved with my church Austin CIty Life. It is so wonderful. I really think that God is so gracious by putting those people in my life. I was asked to watch some of the kids while they had a leadership meeting (and if you know me, you know that is NOT my thing haha) and I ended up doing it since I had nothing else to do. It ended up being 7 kids and me with the help of Stephen a 16 year old kid that goes to ACL. It ended up being great I fell in love with some of those kids and Owen is one of them. He is the pastor's son and is so sweet when he has your attention. I went over to the Dodson's (that's the pastor) house on Sunday for a little church get together and Owen fell in love with my camera. SO, basically I just wanted to post some pictures from some of the times I have had thus far ENJOY!!
So Funny Story about this one... When I was younger I used to think that people looked so much prettier like this. haha I know I was weird.
Poor Laura had a toothache and then a migraine the day she left and then when they got to San Marcos her left cheek was completely swollen!

He made us hats out of railroad tracks! :) He is so sweet.

This was Owen taking the picture and that is Joe in the background. He plays in the Andy Melvin Band and they lead worship at Austin Stone he is a pretty cool guy!
