Well, it's been a pretty good week.  I work with 13 other women and though I love my job, from time to time the hormones take over and we lose our grip.  For the most part we hold it all together but from time to time we get short-tempered, jealous, tired, stressed etc.  This week was a bit dramatic at times but I think it's okay now.  Friday was a great day at work, we are all blessed to have a great job and we know it (or most of us do.) 

Yesterday after work I got my  hair cut and highlighted (whew, it was getting so heavy).  I felt like I lost 5 pounds when I got finished.  Now in reality, she didn't really cut a ton of my hair but my hair is VERY thick (thank goodness) and she thinned it.  The bright blonde looks good since we are going into May soon (if I do say so myself.)  After that we ate at Smokey Bones. 

I didn't really have any plans for today so I just did whatever.  This morning I got up and went out to Mom and John's for a while, then I came home and cleaned the house.  I hate cleaning (who loves it really?) but it took me no time at all and then it's done for a while.  After that I made a quick trip to Kroger then read some of my book.  This afternoon I spent some time with my friend Sarah and we had fun catching up.  Then this evening I met Mom, John, Nick, Brooke, and the boys at Covington Park where we had a "KFC picnic" and watched Conner play.  So now it's 7:30 and I'm thinking about a bath and pj's.  Awww, the single life, it's a party!

To any and/or all that are interested, I am having a Premier Designs jewelry party on Friday, April 23rd at 6:30.  It is at my office which is over behind the mall.  Please feel free to stop by or contact me to order.

Hope you all have a good week.

Okay so I know that this post may sound pathetic but I can't use my Iphone right now and it's driving me nuts!  Let me tell the entire story first . . . Today I woke up to a phone call about 7:30 a.m. and it was my precious nephew Conner.  "Bef, do you wanna doe (go) to the zoo wif (with) me?"  Aww, heart melting!  So, we (Nick, Brooke, Conner, Colin, Mom, John, & I) head to the Louisville Zoo.  It was a beautiful day and we had SO much fun. We got to Louisville around 12:30 our time and after getting a bit turned around (b/c Nick didn't need to stop for directions) we made it to the zoo around 1:00.  There was a very long line but it moved fast.  We stayed until they closed and saw just about everything there was to see except the elephants, by the time we got to them I guess they were tired and had gone inside their building.  So, we get back in the vehicle heading to Elizabethtown to eat and all of a sudden my Iphone locks up.  It wouldn't do anything so I tried to turn it off, wouldn't do that either.  To shorten the story a bit I ended up pulling the sim card out accidently and it dropped into the floor of Nick's pathfinder.  Now, me and Conner were in the third row back seat and it fell back there.  We finally got to Elizabethtown and stopped at Tumbleweed for supper and I just knew that we would find the card.  NOPE!  We looked everywhere, under the seats, behind the seats, even in the front where it could not have gotten to unless it sprouted legs.  We looked and looked and looked some more.  Okay, so I guess that somehow it has broken free of the vehicle =)  I was so upset . . . b/c I thought I lost all of my contact #'s, pictures, etc.  We got inside the restaurant and sat down and I started crying.  PATHETIC!  Nick was like "You are crazy! Crying over a sim card." That made me cry harder.  Now, seriously I know that is stupid but I'm chalking it up to tiredness  =)  So after we ordered our food, I used John's phone and called Apple.  The little guy that answered the phone told me how to reset it and gave me the good news that with an Iphone absolutely nothing is on the sim card.  All of my contacts and pictures etc. are still there.  I just can't use it right now for calls or texts.  Luckily our At&t store here in BG is open on Sundays so I will definitely be there tomorrow after Sunday School.  See . . .  I told you that it was pathetic.  Again, we had a great day at the Zoo and it felt really good to experience that with the boys and eventhough Colin doesn't remember it is still a special memory.  Hope you all are having a great weekend!

Warm weather and Easter

I love this weather!  The weekend was perfect!  It was just the right temperature outside.  Friday night we went out to eat to celebrate my sis-in-law's birthday which is tomorrow.  At dinner Mom started getting sick with the stomach virus, poor thing.  She took care of the sick all week so I guess it was inevitable.  Anyway, yesterday I just spent the day out and about whatever I wanted.  Actually I spent almost 3 hours at the nail place getting my nails and toes done.  I keep my nails done and this time of year my toes too but what in the world possessed me to wait until Saturday (the day before Easter) to go and do it.  It was worth it though because they look great!  We had Church last night and it was a good service. Today was great too!  It seems like it has been so long since we had beautiful weather on Easter Sunday.  We had Sunday School, then Church, and then the egg hunt.  It's so fun to see the kids all dressed up.  The service was great and I'm so thankful that God is blessing us at Jock.  I have to admit that I was a bit said because usually we have dinner at Mamaw and Papaw's after Church on Easter but with Tommy in the hospital and then everybody going their different ways we ended up eating at Cheddar's.  It was still a nice lunch and it gave me more time to see my sweet nephews who are growing like weeds.  Colin will be 4 months old on Friday.  This afternoon I drove back up to Ed. Co. to visit Trav, Jess, Noah, and Lilly Grace.  I had a good time visiting and watching the kids play, fight, etc.  I can't wait until Annie (Ann Elizabeth) who is being named partially after yours truly gets here to join the crew.  Okay well I've gone on and on long enough.  Time for bed.  Hope you all have a GREAT week.
