Fun Stuff...

Let me just begin by saying that I would post a picture of some of Barrett's adventures from Saturday night, but I am not sure they'd be rated PG.  Really, they weren't that bad...just terribly embarrassing!  :-)   OK...maybe I'll share one.
Hello.  I'm wearing jorts...and a homemade denim vest...and no shirt or shoes.  In a bar.
After a roaring night of fun for him, Barrett and I ventured out to look at cars.  Yay!  My poor little Galant is nearing the end of her troublesome life, so we decided to get out and see what's out there.  It was fun to test drive something new and it was fun to think about pushing my car over a cliff, but it was not fun dealing with the car salesman.  Vultures!  The first words that came out of my mouth were, "We are not here to buy a car today."  Next thing I know, we're sitting at the man's desk and he's running numbers!  How the heck did that happen?!  Anywho - we barely made it out of there with our lives but are happy to report that we are safe and sound.  We've at least got some things to think about now so that we can plan appropriately for when we do get a new car in the next few months.

I have been busy, busy, busy with school work.  It's an online Literature class, so it's not so bad.  A lot of reading mostly, but I'm OK with that.  :-)

Here's a fun little giveaway...

My friend Nickie is giving away the cutest headbands on her blog!  I am 100% keeping my fingers crossed that I win so I can have the purple one for running this winter and for cold Pirate games next fall!  If you are interested, you can hop on over to her blog and leave a comment to register.  If you win, and you love me, I will graciously accept you gifting the headband to me.  :-)

Happy First Day of February!

Friday is National Wear Red Day to raise awareness for fighting heart disease in women.  Heart disease and stroke are the number one and number three killers of women, so don't forget to wear red to show your support!
