100 Posts!

I forgot to mention that the last post was officially my 100th post, but I wanted to recognize this momentous occasion, so I'm writing about it on the 101th post. Remember in elementary school when you always had to bring in 100 pennies (or whatever else could easily be separated in 100) to celebrate the 100th day of school?

Last night was the second weekend in a row that Lucas has come into town. I would like to think that it is all for me, but I guess I will have to take 50% of the credit and give the other 50 to the holiday. He did come over last night to hang out after he got into town, and I managed to get a pretty funny picture. Like I said before, he is a foot taller than me. Now, I'm not tall...but I'm not extremely short either. I am 5"4' and he is 6"4'. He's a pretty big guy. Anyway, my roommate has a mini laptop that he was playing around on. The second I walked in and saw him I was laughing hysterically.


It really looks like its just a normal sized computer and he is a giant.

In other news, I wanted to thank everyone for their kind words about my last post. I had a long talk with my boss at Rave and I just really needed a kick in the butt. She wants to see me look for a career in education (which is what I work towards for 4 years of my life), and doesn't want to see me sell myself short. So I'm going full speed ahead towards that. Next weekend I am going to Nashville for a education career fair. My aunt is a teacher down there and she got hired on the spot at the fair last year, so cross your fingers!!! I really need this!

Also, one of my all time favorite bloggers (and person in general) Jenn gave me an award!


Thanks girl, this made my day :)

FRIENDS… comes with the following description to be added & passed along: “These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated.” It also says : “Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

So I pass this wonderful award onto the following:

Love you girls and all the other blogger friends out there! I wish I could pass it on to everyone, because this whole community is just awesome, and I feel so lucky to call all of you friends.

Today, I need to go grocery shopping BAD. I feel like I am in such a food rut. I only eat pretty much the same things everyday. I need to "spice up my life" (spice girl reference, anyone?). Any suggestions as something new to try out for lunch/dinner?

Well, I hope that everyone is having a great Saturday. Im pretty excited for Easter tomorrow! What does everyone have planned for Sunday?

He is such a cutie pie!

Check out the Quick Kitchen section of Gourmet... they have great ideas for using ingredients you probably already have in the fridge.

I love those mini laptops. I can't wait to get one and feel like a giant, albeit not as much as one as Mr. Lucas!

I just caught up on your last few that boy is cutie-cute! You two look adorable! Yay for your 101st post! SO funny about your "giant" bro and the midget laptop. My therapist has a super tiny computer (maybe even smaller than that one!) and he nicknamed it something really funny like Goliath or Titan..I can't remember but it was funny! It's great that you can talk openly with your boss about your career...the career fair could be your big break! =)
