I am so excited for so many reasons! Here are some wonderful things coming up in my life:

Next Weekend: WICKED! Grant bought me tickets for Christmas to see the musical WICKED in Houston! I am beyond thrilled. I already have the soundtrack memorized. Also, Easter is that weekend so I get to spend Easter at my home church. YAY!

The Weekend after that: GIRLS WEEKED 07! And I realize I misspelled Weekend. It's GIRLS WEEKED!! (At last years girls weeked 06, my dear Lindsee made a cake to commemorate the event, and wrote "GIRLS WEEKED" on the cake. I think I almost wet my pants when she presented it so proudly!

Isn't she just precious?? :) So Girls Weeked 07 is upon us, and the gals are coming up to Baton Rouge to see me! I am just beyond myself with excitement. Next year, (Girls Weeked 08) is in Montana!! HOLLA!

Now, the end of April has even more excitement in store for me! I will become an aunt for the 3rd time!! My sister, Jaclyn, is having her first baby at the end of April. I am getting a 3rd niece, her name will be Grace Parker. I can't wait to meet her. According to the ultrasound she has very full lips and alot of hair! (Like Suri Holmes Cruise!!) This is my cute pregnant sister :)

Also, in May I get to have a little vacation. Grant's parents are treating us as well as Chase and Ronda- my new brother and sister-in-law, to DISNEY WORLD!! I haven't been since high school and I can't wait to go ride all the rides. We are only going for 3 days but I am very happy about having a little break in my work week!

SO MUCH TO LOOK FORWARD TO! God is so good to me :)

Macaroni and Cheese

Okay, I have to officially make a blog about Macaroni and Cheese. I love it so much. I try to stop eating it. I tell myself sometimes, "you're an adult". I want to eat healthier. But there is something about it. Everytime I'm hungry, it's the first thing I think of that I want to eat. I have to convince myself to make something else. I never get tired of it. I always want it. Grant always asks me if I can ever get sick of it. The answer is no. Absolutely not. My very favorite is Kraft. Specifically spirals. But I can also eat Velveeta Shells & Cheese. You know what? I think I'm going to get to the point where I will no longer be ashamed of my intense love for this food.

At Chili's, they have Kraft Mac & Cheese on the kids menu. I'm always a little dissapointed that it's not on the real menu. Can't an adult love Kraft Macaroni and Cheese??

I love it for lunch. I love it for dinner. I love it for a midnight snack. I always want it. I could live off of it. Variety in my diet? Not so much. Don't care. I love it!

Yes, that's right. Grant and I are making friends. We are beginning to have a Louisiana social life!! :) Lindsey & Josh, and Leah & JP are officially our friends. Last night we all went to Carabba's and then back to our place to play poker. I'm stealing a few of Lindsey's pics here:

This is Lindsey, me and Leah. They both lived in West Virginia, but did not know each other. Although, Leah and JP moved to Louisiana from TEXAS! :)
These are the husbands that refused to pose. Grant, JP, and Josh. They all couldn't understand why the girls wanted to take all these pictures when we had just met each other. Silly husbands.

Back at our place playing poker (I changed clothes) Grant didn't want to take a picture. But I'm posting this anyways :) Thanks Lindsey for letting me steal your pictures :)
Grant is out walking Moxie right now, but I think we may go drive around and have a day date. I've been craving a hot dog. And the closest Fuddruckers is in New Orleans. Where else can you buy a hot dog?? (Besides a sports game)
I hope everyone is having a good weekend! Love ya bye!

The Office

Good morning everyone :) I'm about to head off to work. Typically, when I get there I have 30 minutes all to myself before anyone gets there. I usually use this time to check my email, read up on celebrity news, etc. You know, the important stuff! Ha, ha. But today is a different day.

There are two attorneys in the office. Greg is the one who runs the whole show. His wife Natalie is the accountant for the company. Yesterday she sat me down and explained to me that she and Greg would be gone until 2:00 today. In this time period she wants me to rearrange the office. All of it.

She said that she doesn't like to do it while Greg is there because he panics. She says moving things around makes him nervous, and he is better off just seeing the finished product. (Wives know their husbands SO well!)

I'm fine with this, really I am. But there is ALOT to move. Every desk has a computer, full of wires and things that I'm a little afraid to touch. What if I mess something up???

So when I get to work this morning, I have to make a plan. I diagram even. I gotta figure out where all this stuff is going. And I hope I don't pull a muscle, because then nothing is getting done!!

Anyways, tonight I am making pork chops and mashed potatoes for dinner. I've told Grant already because sometimes he feels the need to eat lunch at 4:30 so when he comes home for dinner he's not hungry at all. But I am! So I eat dinner all by my lonesome... but not tonight!

Off to work I go, wish me luck in my office re-arranging endeavors!!

Here We Go Again

So I used to have a Xanga page and I blogged on there alot. But that was years ago. And this is now. And apparently all the cool kids are doing it :)

This is to keep ya'll updated on my Louisiana Life. I'm living in Baton Rouge, working as a legal secretary and loving life with my handsome husband. And my cutie dog. But I miss my Cypress, Texas. I miss my family, my friends. I miss it all.

These are my friends. Joanna, Lindsee and Sally. They are coming to visit me in April. I am positively giddy!

These are my twin nieces. Scarlett and Juliet. I really miss them. They are getting so big!

This is my cute puppy, Moxie. He is a Shiba Inu.

Moxie is very very cute but since he is still just a puppy he likes to chew. He once chewed the hose behind the toilet and when I came home from work the apartment was flooding. That was just fabulous. :)
I am making new friends here though. Lindsey and her husband Josh live across from me and Grant's apartment. They just moved to Louisiana from West Virginia and got married in August. She has been such a lifesaver since we are both here and lonely! It's nice to have someone to talk to. I don't have a picture of her yet. Maybe I'll steal one from her facebook! :-D
I got home from work today and cleaned my house. I am going to make dinner here in a bit. Grant is getting home pretty late tonight.... blah. But that's okay. I get to watch Oprah, which I Tivo'd. Have ya'll gotten Tivo yet? You need to. I need to send it's inventor a thank you note.
Anyways, I'm looking forward to my new blogging adventure. I hope you stick around :)
