Well I didn't finish as soon as I thought I would but I'll continue now.

On Sat my mom and I went to the mall and then we tried to go to a concert but the restaruant/bar was overbooked (apparently you need reservations which we didn't have). Then it got icy out so we didn't do much else that night. Sunday we went out to eat at Outback and they gave me a free sundae that I shared with mi madre.

Monday's birthday celebration consisted of eating half of the piece of cheesecake that my mom bought me from Cheesecake Factory. Then Tuesday I went to Regan's concert (she did great by the way, regardless of her lost keychain - which I just now found out is no longer lost, yay!) which wasn't at all related to my birthday but I'm saying it was. I celebrated with an ameretto sour.

Then Wednesday was my actual birthday and also LOST night. So at work one of the babies shares my b-day and for 1st birthdays (Abigail turned 1) we celebrate by giving the babies cupcakes (messy, but cute) and so I had a cupcake at work. And then I went out to eat with a former co-worker and her sister, had a jack and coke (which later made me really sleepy). Then I went to Stacy's to watch LOST and she and her roomates made me a FUNFETTI cake and bought me some cool journals (one has GRAPH paper, how awesome is that?) and some fun earrings. Then of course LOST, but I have to say it was a pretty boring episode, especially for how hyped up it had been. And I started falling asleep towards the end, thanks to the jack and the boringness of the episode and the fact that I had been up since 5am.

Thursday I celebrated by having leftover funfetti cake for breakfast and another cupcake at work (Audrey turned one on Thursday). Then on Friday I ate the rest of the cheesecake.

I made up for all the bad eating by not having much of an appetite at all this past week.

Anyway, that was my birthday week. I hope you all get to have a week long birthday.

Oh! I forgot to mention that I had the WARMEST birthday ever! My birthday was 72 degrees and I enjoyed drinking a cold Starbuck's beverage on their patio whilst wearing capris and a T-shirt! AMAZING!

Today was just as nice and I went to Fido (local coffee shop) and sat outside whilst reuniting with a high school friend who was in town.

Okay I've rambled on for too long now.

OH! And Happy Late Birthday to Mel Oesch!

Week-Long Celebration

Everybody knows birthdays should have week-long celebrations. It doesn't matter if your birthday is the first day of the week, the last, or in the middle, it just needs to be a week long. My birthday falls in the middle of my week this year. The week started Saturday. My mom flew in just for the weekend. From the airport we went straight to the Pancake Pantry for some yummy brunch. I chose the Caribbean Pancakes (5 cakes topped with banana, pecans, coconut and of course maple syrup). Then we went exploring one of Nashville's malls (Green Hills).

Ooops! Gotta go for tonight's celebration so I guess I'll finish the update tomorrow night. Later!

Winter, Liscence Plates, American Idol, and Much, Much More!

Okay. I love sitting here in Stacy's living room (which is FREEZING by the way, because they don't have heat, just space heaters) reading everyone's xanga entry's about blizzards and snowdays, meanwhile yesterday was 60 and raining and today when it flurried people here freaked out, probably more so than people up there are freaking out about being snowed in for real.

It's official. I did not get my driver's liscence yet. I tried yesterday but their computers were down, so I will try again tomorrow. As of today, however, my car is no longer a Michigander. It's a Tennessean. The Michigan plate is lying on the backseat until I think of a good place (and a good way) to somehow display it in my apartment. Hmm... here's an idea: maybe I can make some sort of "found objects" art piece. I don't know what I'd use besides the plate or where I would display it.

We're watching American Idol. Next is Lost and I'm super excited. For all of you Lost watchers out there, you know how I'm feeling. For those not in the know - basically I'm in agony and I love it.

Today is just one of those days where I feel like typing and typing and telling you more and more things, even though I don't really have anything specific to say. But that's okay. Sometimes we can have no words and other times we can just go on and on about the little details of life. Today is one of those days.

Work is getting better. I still don't really want to be there, but it's a little better. One of the girls from the office that I had a problem with is quitting. Some of the kids who rattled my nerves (by shreiking all day long just for attention) aren't in my classroom anymore. And most importantly, we trained the babies we do have to take their naps at the same time, so there's a good two hours when everyone is sleeping and that down time is very nice on my stress level. A moment to breath.

Bound4Freedom - they have a new site up ( I believe) and I love it. I wish there were a way I could be involved with that still. Maybe someday after they get themselves more grounded I could help expand it or something. Of course it still wouldn't be the same without those girls. Those girls with their hearts of gold. I think it's all that coffee and tea that makes them so warm inside

Okay. That's all for now I suppose.

A New Day, A New Post

It will soon be official. It's February, which means my liscence plate needs to be renewed. And that means I'll be getting a Tennessee liscence plate, and along with that a Tennessee driver's liscence. It's officially time for me to give up my Michigan residency (even though I really haven't lived there in about two and a half years).


It also means I'll be one year closer to 25. That's right friends, with my 24th birthday around the corner all I can think about is how the next one will be 25. Crazy.

If you haven't heard me say it yet, we got a whole inch of snow here on Friday and all the public schools shut down. I had a two hour delay at work. I find it humorous.

I'm a woman of few words recently.

I decided today that I need to start volunteering somewhere and that I need to start recycling. So I'm going to look into both of those.

Oh and since my brother lives in chicago and I grew up only 1.5 hours away - Go Bears.

Since most of my good friends live in indianapolis and I went to school only 1/2 an hour away - Go Colts.

I'm torn, but I'm leaning a bit towards the Colts.
