The Wrap-Up

It was a lovely weekend! I dinner with the girls Friday night over at Mia's place, and it was yummy! She made pasta and a salad, and we all left with full tummies! I had to leave early to go home and study for my Health class final. I think I did pretty good, so I think an A is in my future there!

Saturday night, my parents and David and I went over to Dave's parent's house for a lovely dinner. They went out of their way to set a beautiful table and feed us well!

Sunday I went to the Byron Nelson and had a blast! I've never been and I can't wait to do it again, although I was pretty worn out after all the walking. But hey, it was great exercise!

So it was back to the grind today. I have to get home and finish some homework due Wednesday, which will be the last night of my Humanities class. I really like the class and enjoy the bonds I've created with my classmates. I have to figure out what to bring, as my professor told us we could bring snacks as we have our class discussion for our final project. Something healthy...yes, I am trying to be good! David and I are going with my parents on a cruise the week before Christmas and I am going to lose 50 pounds before I go. Yes, we've decided to wait until next year for Paris and London since the economy is in the pits right now. But I am excited about a cruise...I've never been on one!

So that's the latest with me. Have a good Monday!

Checking In

Thankfully, school is winding down. I have my final for one class on Saturday morning, and then my final project due for my other class next Wednesday. After that, I am free for the summer!! We had en eventful week last week...we bought a new coffee table, washer and dryer, and a new bed. I feel so very grown up now!

Everything is good, just been swamped with work and school. Things will lighten up soon! Just wanted to say that I am still here and alive. Oh, and Jerilyn, I will so take you up on your offer for a drink!! (You don't need to buy!! We just need to hang out!)

Everyone hang in there and have a good one!

Sorry For Being Gone!

I have been working hard in school and have had a LOT on my plate lately. The posts will probably be a bit sparse until the end of April...that's when I am done with this semester of school.

All really is well on my end...just lots of work and school. David is about to be travelling quite a bit, but it's okay. Absence does make the heart grow that possible? I am already immensely fond of him! :)

The kitties are all doing well, too. Things in our world are wonderful. No real news I guess!

So I hope everyone else is doing well! I'll post again very soon!

Weathering The Storm

Good grief! We had some monster storm move through last night, and it was a doozy! It started around 3:30am I think...I usually sleep through storms but not this one! The wind was unreal, and the lightening was blue! I've never even seen blue lightening...scary! We turned on the TV to see what was moving through, and it was a long squall line that brought circular and straight line winds. It's like a war zone around my complex...there is construction across the street and the big, thick pieces of plywood were blown everywhere, and there are trees and limbs scattered around as well. It's a mess! But we're all okay, and despite the emergency sirens going off, all is well.

That's my big news today. Needless to say, I am very sleepy after being up for an hour in the middle of the night. I hope everyone in the area is okay! Have a good Thursday!

I'm 16 Again!!

Take a step back in time with me...

It's 1988, and I have some very poofy bangs. The arms are stacked with bangle bracelets, and I am in an over sized t-shirt with leggings and flats. The occasion? George Michael in concert at Reunion Arena. My friend Holly (from church, mind you!) and I were off to see him in concert, and it was totally awesome!! We sang along with every song (including "I Want Your Sex" even though we didn't want anyone's sex...we just wanted to sing along and dance in the aisles!), and screamed like the teenagers we were!

Fast forward to 2008, and he's coming back! And my husband is taking me!!! Yes, we're going to see George Michael in concert at the AAC, and I am one happy girl! Gone are the poofy bangs and all the bangle bracelets...and yes, the t-shirt and leggings. But not the teenager spirit! We'll be dancing in our row and having a blast! it's our first concert together and it's going to be a riot!! I am filling my iPod with George's best stuff, and getting ready to start planning the concert clothes...I haven't been to a concert in ages!! And I am so glad David is happy to go. And now we get to be 16 again for one more night!

And a big shout-out to Kim for a lovely dinner party Saturday night! The girls got together for a vegetarian pot-luck, and it was wonderful!! Kim is a perfect hostess, and it was a great night! (except for bad traffic and Angela's allergies! Poor girl!)

I hope everyone has a good Monday!
