Busy Busy!

Yesterday I went to the Lavonia fall festival with Nick, Carrie, Brinsley, her friend Amanda, and Noah. The place had so much food it was ridiculous! Next year I will have to make sure I go there to eat. Also I bought a magnet that says "I love my Yorkie." It is so cute! I plan to put it on my car and in the process support the Humane Society. Then we all went to Tugaloo State Park where we had a family reunion for my mom's side of the family. I had lots of fun and got to talk with people I only see every now and then. Then we went home and Nick and I finished up season 2 of Grey's Anatomy. We are eventually going to catch up with the new season. That show is wonderful and always makes me teary eyed. So now I am about clean the house and wash some clothes. So good Sunday to all!

This was possibly in the front run of being the most stressful day ever! I am not even going into details that is how bad it was. I can't think about it for another second! So I off to drink margaritas eat Mexican and just have fun!!! Then tomorrow I have a family reunion which should be fun?. Nothing planned for tomorrow night just yet. Sunday I plan on doing nothing! So good bye and good weekend!

Tuesday when I left work, Nick and I went straight to Atlanta. After sitting in traffic we finally made it to the hotel! Once their we left and went to Pappadeaux which is this great seafood restaurant. We had appetizers, meal, drinks, and dessert. It was so great just to relax and enjoy our meal. Trust me there was no dieting on this trip. The next day when Nick left at 6:30 am to take his test I stayed wide awake and watched tv and read magazines. That was much better than working. When Nick got back we left and stopped at the Mall of Georgia to eat at Ted's Montana Grill. They had very good food and everything in the restaurant was earth friendly. My to go cup was made from corn! Very cool! So today was back to the grind of working, but tomorrow is FRIDAY!!!!! THANK GOD!

Today begins my tv obsession. As much as I hate to admit it I am really addicted to some tv shows. Today Dancing with the Stars, Prison Break, How I met you Mother, Chuck, The Bachelor, Heroes, and The Big Bang Theory all come on. Why do they play so many shows on the same day??? Thank goodness for Tivo. Other than watching tv I am going to my in-laws to eat a wonderful meal. YUM can't wait!
UPDATE: If you read this earlier, well read again. I completely forgot somethings. I have lost another pound. That is 13lbs in all!!! I can't believe I have stuck with it this time. Anyway Tuesday after work Nick and I are heading to the big ATL. Nick has a test to take at The World Congress Center at 8am Wed. morning so we decided to get a hotel room for the night. I am taking a personal day so I hope my class or really the sub survives. I will be back Wednesday for the next update. I am sure you are on the edge of your seat!

Well Saturday started off really well. We had made plans the night before to cook for everyone. So we cleaned all morning and planned what we were cooking. Then the plans got blown out of the water! So we then went to Anderson and met my parents to eat. Then we went to Party City and I bought a Halloween costume. I will not be the flight attendant because the costume was extremely short and see through! So I am going to be a witch! Also today is the first day of fall. It does not feel like it, but I hope the cooler weather come soon.

Hump Day

Well this week is almost over!!! I am ready for the weekend. Today was actually a great day at school. So no complaints here. Also I am very excited because Sadie (Carrie's dog) is coming to stay from tomorrow till Monday. I am soooo happy! Duncan loves Sadie and they play so well together. So this weekend should be filled with lots of playing outside!!!

Where to start? Yesterday was great! Nick and I just sat around and relaxed all day. We did go to the Wal-Mart, but we went so early that hardly anyone was there. I love Wal-Mart like that! Anyway I bought a couple of Mums and planted them. They always remind me that cooler weather is on the way. Speaking of it was quite chilly this morning. Fall is just around the corner (this Sunday actually). Other than that Nick grilled out tons of food for us to put in the freezer for quick week night meals. Today was crazy. This new student is turning everything upside down! So needless to say I am tired and cranky. Then I read on Brinsley's (my neice) myspace page something absolutely amazing that she wrote about me. So now I am in a much better mood. Thanks Brinsley! She is wonderful and makes me so proud. Also some good news: I have now lost 12lbs!!!

Tomorrow is Friday!

My title says it all. This week has been a little crazy! I have a new student at school that has a very rare disorder. She can hear, but everything just sounds like noise. She also can not talk (due to the fact that she cannot hear correctly). She does understand sign language which unfortunately I do now know. I have learned bathroom, no, stop, thank you and I love you. I use no and stop all the time! Anyway she gets very frustrated because she cannot communicate. I feel very bad for her and I feel a little helpless because there is only so much I can do. I am thinking regular ed. sounds better and better. Besides that I am just really looking forward to this weekend. Nick and I are going to clean our house from top to bottom. I hate feeling like something is dirty or disorganized. I have so much chaos at school, I want to come home and feel relaxed. I am not relaxed when things are like they are now. So wish me luck on cleaning!

Fall and Friends

Well Friday the surprise birthday for Carrie and Shelly went off without a hitch! The party was lots of fun! I got some really cute and funny pictures. They are all posted on my myspace page, so check them out. Saturday Amy, her mom, and I went shopping for fall decorations. We had a great time and found some really cute things. I will post pictures of my creations soon. Later that afternoon everyone went to Downtown Cafe to eat and then back to my house. It was a relaxing night and exactly what I needed. Sunday I went to the lake with my family to celebrate my mom's, Carrie's, and my brother-in-law's birthdays. I was so glad to get to see everyone. So the weekend was busy, but great. Happy Birthday Carrie!!

This upcoming weekend

Well this weekend is soon becoming very busy! Saturday Amy, Carrie, and I are going FALL shopping. I have to say I soooo excited. The summer things are going to be packed up. Then after that Carrie and I are planning a Fondue party to celebrate her birthday. I am thinking cheese and chocolate oh my! Yummy! Come by and join the fun. Then Sunday after I decorate for fall (I know it is still technically summer, but who cares) I am going to my parents to celebrate three birthdays. Carrie's, my Mom's, and Russell's birthdays all fall in September. We are going to grill out and enjoy each others company. So needless to say I am glad to see the weekend roll in. Have a great Thursday!

It's the weekend update!

Saturday we all went over to Amy and Michael's to watch GA TECH and GA play some football. We ordered pizza and had chocolate fondue for dessert. Very delicious! Thanks Amy! Then we went to Amanda and Lamar's engagement party that happened to be just down the street. Lets just say we were not really watching the game anymore. That is okay though because they were winning. We had lots of fun!! Then Sunday (and surprisingly feeling very chipper) Nick and I decided to ride to Anderson and watch Superbad. The movie was sooooo funny. I literally laughed every 5 seconds. I would not recommend it for children or older people because the humor was often crude, but none the less funny! We also went to the Halloween store in the mall to see if they had my costume and they did not. So I guess I am just going to have to order it online and send it back if it does not fit. Oh well. Well today is Labor day which means no work for me or Nick. How exciting. So I plan on not doing too much! Have a great Labor Day!!!!
