Actually, it was a Thursday.

Yesterday, one of my dreams came true.

I woke up early (6 am) to go to Coffee Station with Tiffany. That was pretty fun. But by the time I went to class and got home, I was pretty tired, so I took a nap. I set my alarm and when I woke up when it went off, I was still tired. So I tried to fall back asleep.

As I was drifting back off to sleep, I heard Anna yelling in the living room.

"What!? What are you doing here?!!??!?"

I thought she might be on the phone with one of her high school friends who had come into town or something.

A few seconds later, she knocked lightly on my bedroom door, then proceeded to tell me that there was someone with a package at the door for me. I jumped out of bed, slightly confused, and ran into the living room.

"You're joking. Someone is here that we know."
"No! Seriously. I'm talking to my mom on the phone. There is someone outside who wants you to sign for a package."

Finally I decided to open the door and see for myself. I expected someone to jump out at me, like Brad (who used to live in the apartment across from us). He rarely visits, so when he does, it's a big deal.

I tried to open the door but I could only get it open a little crack. Something was tied to the door, keeping it shut.

Half delirious, I looked down to see Tawny's dog leash tied around the handle and dangling to the ground.

My family had flewn in from England without telling me! I was absolutely shocked. Of course, my brain wasn't working enough for me to figure out that my family didn't actually live in England anymore. I heard giggling, and then Claire, Christina and my mom appeared from around the corner.

I started screaming.

I have never been surprised by someone like that. I've always wanted to, but it's never happened. My mom and two of my sisters drove all the way to College Station without telling me! I was so excited! It's my Nana's birthday today (the big 7-7) and my mom decided to surprise her. She decided to surprise Carolyn and I, too. :)

I have been having a blast with my little sisters. I took them to Coffee Station and we hung out on the couches upstairs. It's been so much fun! Tonight, we are going to see Ocean's Thirteen. I heard it was really good, so I'm pretty excited about that.

I need to help Carolyn with her homework now. I will write about marrying someone with piercings later. (haha)
