It's been a good weekend.. Did a little "taking it easy", expressing, sharing, cheering for football, and took a long envigorating bike ride, for the victory. LSU against Auburn..They BARELY won, but somehow managed to pull it off..Never thought I'd ever be into football...til this year..Maybe b/c I've actually caught every game..got into it a little bit..interesting good times. Then i got the opportunity to go to the game last night..something I always wanted to do but never got around to..I had a blast..The funny thing about it was, that we were given the tickets, and they were for the opposing team..So guess where we sat?! tee hee hee..i ALMOST felt like i wasn't supposed to cheer for my team..
After the game, J and I got some more to drink and decided to take a bike ride all through downtown. Did i mention it was 2:00 in the a.m. We were so into it we didn't get home til 4..Had the time of my life in two hours..Amazing..
Did a few artsy cards for Christmas this year and a birthday card for my mom Sat night. I love when I just feel it..When nothing can stop me from pouring it all out there..I feel the outcome is always better...

It really was a nice weekend..Every part of it..I hope to have another one of those soon..

In browsing through blogs, I found a girl who'd gotten tagged and really liked the rules of it. I didn't get tagged but it inspired me, so here's my take...

The name of the game is to:List one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your middle name game facts. At the end of your blog post you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog. My middle name is:

Having someone that loves me so much is the greatest feeling in the world.
Everyday i try to think of one thing that I can work on improving.
Lpn school is what i really have my heart set on right now-and i hope i don't let anyone down.
Emotions consume me sometimes..good and bad..to the extreme.
New experiences are awaiting me and I can't wait to be a part of them.
Art consumes me, moves me, completes me, is my way of expression.

Hmmm..Doing that sparked a few ideas for me..So i know i'll probably add it to the list and get to eventually..but when i do-it's gonna be fantastic.

I love this!!!!

Quote of the day:"Let the beauty we love be what we do" -Rumi

And this is where I rant and rave...

Spent a few hours last night getting crafty...It was wonderful...Did i mention i watched the bachelor?? That show there-i just couldn't imagine having to "fight" with a bunch of other katty women to prove my worthyness to be with this guy. To share him amongst the rest..Call me crazy..It's just not my cup o' tea..So back to the craftyness...I bought some new christmas supplies a week or so ago and finally got to use them. i purchased some imaginescince(sp??) paper, bo bunny brads(LOVE them), 7 gypsies, making memories chipboard letters(LOVE) them.. Some of the papers i bought were inspired by jeremy's mom. I thought of her once i found the first item i'd purchased..they were these vintage looking stickers, full of christmas sayings and words...so i based my paper collection on that...I'm pretty happy with the outcome...

On another note...once i finally laid down to sleep last nite around 12:30(i'm a nite owl)..i tossed and turned due to this massive ear infection I've been fighting for a few weeks now...Talk about unbearable...I sat up with tears streaming down my face...Argh...Used a few HOT compresses..and 2 500mg tylenol to at least lighten it enough for me to get some sleep...Antibiotics-here i come...Ear infection..you can go to HELL...

Sunday evening I'm flying to Dallas to do some training for the company I work for. I'm a little nervous, no vehicle (as of right now) to get me around...HATE the idea of having to sit in a hotel for four days surrounded by walls where other people have been doing god knows what..with no one to laugh about it with...but excited b/c I may get to see my Uncle & Aunt while I'm there...They're good peeps..i love spending time with them..maybe they can point out some artsy stores for me to check out..I'll be there for 4 days..I'm bound to get into something....

7 hours pass...................................

So i paused in writing/ranting to "work" at work...persued my day in all its glory...then got home to clean...and "manage" my bills...one of those damn bills was my speeding ticket which i could've SWORN was due the last week in October...Well something told me to call to double check the cost..so i did...to find out that it was due the 1st....penalty=warrant & double the fine...BIG fine...OUCH..i could scream.....it's just been one of those days...

glad to be home....well at my Aunts tonite..but that's good enough for me..
