Is it weird that I get bummed when I fall behind on blogs? There are several I read consistently (mostly of ladies I know from college) & a few that I stumbled across that are so great to read (it feels almost like I know the person....weird? maybe but true). I also like to post on what's going on here, what I'm learning, and why Chris rocks. So now I feel very behind and want to do a slew of updates but realize that they would be very jumbled.

How about a brief, bulletted list? I love them.
  • Maggie is getting married on Saturday! Can you believe it my wonderful college roommie & crazy cool friend is getting married in a matter of days. I'm incredibly excited for her!
  • Chris has a present for me but is making me wait to get it...if you know me, you know waiting for a surprise isn't my strong suit. If I know what it is, I wait without complaint but the unknown makes me excited. I will keep you posted--and hopefully you won't have to wait as long as I have (we're at 12 days now)
  • My precious Grandma went home last Friday & this Sunday we'll celebrate her 94th birthday! 94--I always make her younger than she actually is. I think it's because to me she's still spry.
  • We're thinking of redoing our office with cartoon characters who are representative of us: the consensus is that I'm Edna from The Incredibles. This makes me wonder if I wear my glasses too much or if I need to get a new hairstyle....
  • I love Alice In Wonderland but Chris isn't a fan. This is like a reverse repeat of Avatar. Thankfully he will watch it again with me.
Hopefully this Friday I'll be back on track with why Chris rocks....and maybe I'll have an update on the present. My guess is it's a new camera. My hope is it's a potty trained puppy.

It's been a bit blogger world.

  • C3 was challenging, refreshing, and even better than last year. I met some incredible people. I loved hearing what God is doing all over the world through the local church. It's really amazing.
  • Chris & I had our Valentine's date on Friday. We decided to alternate years for planning and since he planned last year, it was my turn. We had dinner at a new to me but it's been around for a while Italian restaurant. Then off to catch a community theatre production of Barefoot in the Park. We were part of the 10 people in the show who weren't retired. Good times.
  • I've done a mountain of laundry which is giving me the urge to really clean out my closet. My niece Jasmine will be very excited to go through it all...and honestly this will probably be the last year she can take hand-me-downs from me. Her foot is already larger than mine. I wouldn't be surprised if she is taller than I am by her birthday in July.
  • Chris & I opted to watch "Flash Gordon" tonight instead of The Bachelor. I dropped out of the season mid way through due to all of the C3 prep and after reading Kenneth's posts on it, I'm really glad I did.
So that's a very short update on the happenings as of late. :-) Thanks for your patience.
