I feel like this has been the longest two weeks ever!! One of the sweet girls I work with lost her father unexpectedly on Friday, January 13th and has been out ever since. We are a small office to begin with, so we are all taking on extra work to make sure everything is covered while she is out and healing. Needless to say, things have been BUSY at work!! Emory has been traveling a lot, so things have been crazy at home too! I am usually off on Fridays to catch up on my homework for law school or to clean house or do things that I would normally do on Saturdays but can't. Well, I worked last Friday and I am here again. I really don't have to be here today, but I think it would help me sleep better at night to know I got some of it done before I go home!! But, I always forget how happy people are on Fridays because I am not really at work any more. So, here's to you Friday! Thanks for showing up and bringing a smile to so many!! Happy Friday everyone! I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!!

Roll Tide!

Well, I know I am a week behind the world, but it is hard to find time to sit down and just write! Although , I think I am going to try to make a point to do this at least three times a week! I really miss the outlet of getting to write to you guys and feel like people are reading and are responding!! So, here is a catch-up from the first couple of weeks of 2012....

1. It has gone by in a blur! I can't believe today is already January 16th! That is just crazy to me! This year is already starting to fly by!
2. Alabama (my Alma Mater) won the National Championship!! My house was ELATED at the win and we are so excited that the SEC can celebrate a NC 6 years in a row, and Alabama can bring the trophy back to Tuscaloosa after such a tumultuous year for the city and state! Roll Tide!!
3. I have made it my goal this year to spend more time with friends! I rarely have free time and I think it is important to work on the relationships with close friends! I started that yesterday with my best friend from high school! We lost touch after graduation and have both gone on to get married (both the Engineers) and she has had two kids! But we recently got back in touch and you would think we never missed a day! We spend about 6 hours together laughing, talking, shopping and eating (a girl's dream day, right?) and we had a blast! We definitely need to make it a point to do this more often!
4. My husband is the best! We have also made it a point to spend LOTS of time together this year. We truly are best friends and love spending time together! We have done a great job of that so far. I love him!
5. I am getting back into school. As reluctant as I am to have to get back to it, I am but it isn't easy! Remember that sweet husband I was telling you about and my friends? I wish I could spend some of the time I have to dedicate to school to having fun with them, but it will come right?
6. Organization! I have made it a point to get organized this year. I am already pretty organized, but I want to stay that way. Since I spend most of my time at work, this is where I started. I have a calendar to keep everything up to date and a new bin on my desk to help keep track of all of the work I have coming, going and in between! In my job, there is A LOT of paper and dates are the most important thing! But, so far (16 days in and it seems to be working.)
7. Blog more! I have already said this, but I felt it needed to be said again.
8. Exercise! I don't want to set any goals really, because I have nothing in mind, and I have very little extra time, but I think we need to maybe take more walks and just clear our heads more, plus I know two furry boys who LOVE the walks!!

Hope your 2012 is off to a great start!! I hope you all start coming back around this little corner more often! Let me know you stopped by too, as you probably know, it makes things better when you hear from people!

Happy New Year!!

Hello everyone!! I am still alive! And I am still busy!! I finished my first semester of law school! I was so excited to finally have that first semester under my belt!! Now only 11 semesters to go! I can't believe we are already 4 days into the year 2012!! Last year went by in a blur (I may say that every year, but it seems to get faster and faster)! I can't wait to see what 2012 brings! I do know that I have made a list of some things that I would like to see happen in 2012 and I don't mean just January!!

1. Save more money! I think this is on everyone's list, but we just bought a new house and we have so many plans for it, so I think our money would be better spent here!

2. Cook more! We were doing so well with this before we moved, and then it all went downhill after that! We have been doing well so far this year, I just hope to keep it up, but I think we will!

3. Walk the dogs more! We have two pretty big and very active dogs (a Weimaraner and a Lab/Shepherd Mix) and they love to exercise!! We need to exercise more too, and we live pretty near a Greenway, so we have no excuse not to go more often!!

The list goes on and on, study more, get in shape, blog more, etc....

But, most of all I want to just enjoy every step of the year 2012! I tend to always look forward instead of enjoying the moment, so this year, my main goal is to just enjoy every moment! I hope to be back soon!
