I’m With The Band {ISYC 2010}

Thanksgiving break wraps up tonight and school starts up again tomorrow (boo!).. but with only two more weeks of classes (woo!).  It’s been a busy, but FUN break and so I’m going to have to post about it in different parts…

So let’s start with Part I! ;o)

Friday the 19th… classes ended, break started.  Packed for 5 days and hit the highway to Indiana, “The Crossroads of America.”

First stop… STARBUCKS.  Did you take advantage of their Buy One Holiday Drink, Get One Free deal?  It was last Thursday through Sunday and I took advantage of it everyday except Thursday!  I think it’s supposed to be “buy one, share one” but when you’re by yourself… you have to drink both!  ;o)

{Also did you buy a gift card yet and register it? Ryan and I made it to 5 stars!}

You could say that the money I saved on gas I spent on coffee… does that justify it?

I actually stayed in the Indianapolis area for the weekend because Ryan was playing drums with John Tibbs at ISYC {Indiana State Youth Convention}.  It’s a weekend-long convention with 1500 high school & junior high students and their leaders from Churches of God across Indiana.  The band was awesome, the speaker was awesome, the location was awesome (downtown Indy)… I’m so glad I was able to go to support my boyfriend.  And just because I wan’t really “part” of the convention doesn’t mean I didn’t get anything out of it spiritually!

I stayed with Carrie (wife of another band member, Todd) and we hung out with the boys and went to all of the services (besides Saturday morning because I slept in until 1 pm!)  She’s super sweet.

Sometimes you just have to go with the classic chicken strips.

Hello sweet boyfriend who carries my heavy, girly bag for me around the city.

On Sunday, everyone packed up and we drove to Anderson.  Ryan had classes on Monday & Tuesday (I had the whole week off) so we just hung out, rested up, and drove back to Missouri on Tuesday.  I wrote a post on the road and posted a picture of what I bought at the Apple Store on our way back….when we got home, I set it up.

To be continued!
