Tuesday Thoughts...

1. I'm keeping Myers tonight and couldn't be more excited about it. We're going play tunnel, tickle, mickey mouse, every trick he knows, etc. until we drop. I just love my little monster!!
2. It's Kristin's birthday week!!! Now, this gal loooovvveesss a birthday. She's not understated about it either. I think when she turns 40, she's not going to be embarrassed about her age. Instead, she's going to be shouting it to the rooftops so people can help her party it up. I can't wait to go to Burgers and Blues Thursday night to celebrate.
3. I'm only working two days next week.... WooHoo!!!!!!!! Monday, of course, is Labor Day. I will also be off Thursday and Friday for my New Orleans trip. Did I mention that I was pumped up about this?? Oh, I didn't think so.
4. Friday, I'm having lunch with two of my favorite friends from college, Lauren and Graham. Graham is also bringing his girlfriend, Molly, which means extra fun. I can't wait for all the fun conversation and the spinach salad from Broadstreet!!
5. I went to a shower this weekend for my friends Wally and Stephanie. They are such a cute couple, and I'm so excited that they are getting hitched y'all! I've known Stephanie for a long time since we grew up in the same church, and Wally and I have been besties all through college!! I had so much fun at the party and can't wait to whoop it up at their wedding. Also, I am the proxy bride at their rehearsal. I am so thankful to them for including me in their big event!!

I'll leave you with some pics from the weekend.
With the happy couple at the "Around the House" shower.

With Justin at George Street (Hey, I know it's called Old Tavern now. I'm old school and I can't keep up. It'll always be George Street to me from the days I was going when I was way to young to get in. Sorry Mom!).

For this child, I have prayed...

In honor of the fact that I just found out my friends Alicia and Patrick are having their first bambino, I wanted to do a post shouting out to my friends' cutsie kiddos. I'll start with telling you how happy I am for Alicia and Patrick. I love this couple, and they are so in love with each other. I know that they are going to be amazing parents with so much love to share with their sweet child. Here is a photo that I stole from her blog of the sweet bambino.
I love that the babe looks like a high-heeled shoe in its debut photo (well maybe an ankle boot, so stylish either way). While we're at it, here's a picture of the couple. Look at them; you know their baby will be cute!!
Here are some other pics of friends' babies.

My friend Amanda's sweet and handsome little boy, Lucas.

My friend Pippa with her sweet little girl, Maddie!

Did you really think I would do a post about kiddies without a picture of Myers??

And just so I don't leave anyone out, here's a pic of baby Harris.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!

It's That Time Again!!

It's football season!!!! I'm getting so ready to see the Bulldogs and the Saints play this year! My friends and I are kicking the season off with a tailgate themed supper club tonight at Kelly's house. I couldn't be more excited. Here are a few highlights from last year that I hope repeat.
MSU - 41, Ole Miss - 27 (Enough said!)
Anthony "Boobie" Dixon (I'm going to miss you 24!)
But you're in a better place with your favorite team!!
The greatest moment of all!!! The Saints win the Superbowl!! How sweet is Drew Brees with his little boy!
And my boy, Jeremy Shockey! Can't wait to see you out there this year, even though I heard you cut those lovely locks!

Wishing everyone a happy and safe football season!!

I'm Watching You

I'm not sure if my readers love YouTube as much as I do, but I cannot get enough of it. I love to watch funny videos and people who sing. Isn't it crazy how many people are famous now just from the exposure they received through YouTube. So, I thought as a new blog posting tradition, I would try to feature some of my favorite YouTubers each week. This week goes out to Lisa Scinta. This girl is good, and I'm going to be in line to get her CD as soon as she makes it big. This first video is the cover that got me hooked on her.
In this next video, she was responding to being called out by Jason DeRulo himself on his YouTube page. He challenged her to use his kareoke app. I think she did a pretty good job.
Here's an acoustic favorite of mine...
Last but not least, here's one of her originals...
She really  has so many more great videos. I encourage you to check her out. Hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday!

Tuesday Thoughts

So everytime Kristin does a Tuesday Thoughts, it kinda makes me want to do one. Since I've kinda been slacking a little on the blog, I thought this would be a good way to jump right back in...

1. I wanted to wait until she had announced it on her blog and facebook, but my sister and her husband Matt are having another boy!! We anxiously waited to find out the sex of the baby, and now we know. I really did not have a preference here. I mean a girl would be fun and different, but Myers has been so fun that another boy would have to be great!! They are naming him Harris Matthew Ginn and calling him Harris. I just can't wait to meet the little fellow.
2. Supper Club with all of my friends has become my favorite thing lately. It's just so fun to have a regular occurance where we get to see each other. It's also fun to see how creative everyone is with their themes. This month is Lindsey's turn, and since she lives in Vicksburg and we all live in Jacktown, she's decided that we should just meet at a restaurant in the Jackson area. The theme is going to be Fall for Phi Mu, and we're all going to dress up and bring dates. I personally cannot wait for this.
3. I've been cooking a lot lately, and our friend group is putting together a recipe book as a present to each other at this year's annual Christmas party. Lindsey and I have been getting them together and formatted. I have to tell you they look great. I can't wait for the final product!
4. I know this is super-cheesy, but I really have a great boyfriend. He's so sweet and does so much for me. I really appreciate him more than he knows. Let me just give you an example... I normally pay about 50 smackers to get my oil changed in my car. Well, Justin wasn't having this, so I paid about 14 bucks for the oil and he's changing it for me. How great is that??
5. I want to recommend that you all go eat at Georgia Blue in Madison. It's a new restaurant there and it's GREAT!! I had the grilled chicken covered with sweet potatoes, ham and melted cheese. It was absolutely delicious!! Let me know if you all like it!
6. I'm going to New Orleans September 9th through 11th. Can anyone say Saints vs. Vikings?? I haven't been to Nola in a little bit, so this is going to be so fun!!
7. A quick funny story... Today, I was going to meet Justin at Hamil's for lunch. As I was walking out, I told our secretary where I was going. Just as I was closing the door, I hear her say, "Can you bring me some Rudabegas?" I opened the door back to remind her that Hamil's is a buffet, so I wouldn't be able to take a doggy bag. She said, "Just put some in a napkin and bring them back in your purse!" She was serious!! Now this is the sweetest lady and I didn't want to make her feel awkward, so I just told her I would. I just said a little prayer that she'd forget about it. Thank goodness she didn't say anything when I got back, but I could just picture myself getting caught and making the cut in the Madison Herald over trying to sneak some rudabegas for a co-worker!
8. I'm not sure who all reads this blog (if anyone at all) but I appreciate anyone who takes time out of their day to read my thoughts. You really are the greatest!!

Hamster Dream Come True

Finally!!! It looks like I won't have to see this face anymore!!
I'm so glad that Rachel and Brendon are up on the block and even more glad that Rachel seems to be the target. She is one of the most annoying players I've ever had the pleasure of watching. I hate her voice and the way that she's always saying people are coming between her and "her man." Below are some pictures of things I'm looking forward to not having to see for the rest of the season.
Rachel straddling Brendon. She does this at every chance she gets.
Rachel and Brendon kissing. They do this at any chance they get.
Rachel and Brendon just being gross! They do this at every chance they get.

Goodbye Rachel!! You won't be missed by me!

Big Thanks!!!

A big shout out and thank you goes to Claire Ward for fixing my background. She heard my cries and came to my rescue. Doesn't it look great!! That was so nice of her to help me out, and I appreciate it very much!!

Under Construction

Ok... I'm usually not very technically challenged, but for some reason, changing the background on my blog has turned into a fiasco. I'm just trying to upgrade, and I can't seem to figure it out. I didn't have this problem the original time. So, I'm asking if anyone is good at this. If you live close to me and could show me, that would be great. If you don't, I'll be glad to give you my password and let you fix it up for me. Or, if you can just offer any tips in the comments section. Anything would be appreciated!! As you can see below, I'm very confused.
Definitely not a great photo of me, but that's how I feel!
