Catching Up!...

I can't believe it's the middle of November! I mean really, where did the entire first half of the month go? As I mentioned in my last post, the last couple of weeks were REALLY busy for me!

Baylor Homecoming was so much fun. I got to see some friends that I hadn't seen in a LONG time, some since we all graduated, and I laughed more than I have in a long time! I have to say that my two most favorite things was eating Bush's chicken...and getting to spend time with my sorority sisters. It was like old times, and just what I needed...I miss those girls!

After Homecoming, we went straight into Danni's birthday, and Election Night! I must admit that I was speechless with excitement. Danni had a B-Day/Election Watch Party at her house, and it was so much fun watching this historic event in the company of my extended family. Here are some pics:

While I'm on the topic of the Election...WOW, WOW, WOW!!!! What an amazing experience it is to live in the land of opportunity. I couldn't be happier that Barack Obama is our President-Elect of the United States of America. I have to say that I'm pretty much sick and tired of seeing those who are not happy about this sulk and moan. Bottom line, it's in the Plan...God's plan that is, and even though Barack has no Army experience, let's remember this; God called many men and women to do great and mighty things out of the fields, homes, water, etc...God equips those that He calls to do the work He requires, so let Him handle it...PLEASE!

Back to my whereabouts...after Danni's birthday was MY BIRTHDAY!!! That's right..I turned 28 last Friday, and it was a great day. My sweet students made me a yummy cake:

Later that night, I met some friends for dinner at an Italian restaurant called La Strada. I really felt so blessed to be surrounded by such great friends. It was such a great night. Here are some pics:

The very next day, Junior League held me captive. We ha d our Holiday Market, and it was SO much fun! I must admit that I worked a lot, and didn't get to shop a lot, but all of that will change this weekend. I'm sorry I don't have any pictures to post from JL...maybe next time!

Back to shopping...I have NO pants that fit, but in a good way. I'm continuing to lose weight, and my pants look like potato sacks on me...VERY unattractive. SO...I'm headed out with the girls this weekend for some much needed girl time. We'll swing by the Nutcracker Holiday Market, The Galleria, and of course to EAT! I'm so excited. I love spending time with my friends. They are such good company. I hope that all of you are enjoying the upcoming Holiday time. I'm going to put up the Christmas tree this this time of year!!! Until next time...
