1st Improv Show

What up first improv show November 15th.
We had a great practice last night...I finally felt "on" for the first time in weeks.
We dedided on a group name: What the Fox
The name came about when we were rehearsing outside and a fox like walked right by - I noitced the fox and was like what the and someone else said fox and it kinda turned into What the Fox (WTF).
We set up a facebook event for the show and we are even featured on an Auburn nightlife website
Exciting exciting!

I Miss Autumn

This week at work had been totally crazy busy for many reasons, but most likely because I took Monday off for a trip up North. And oh what a trip it was. I was flying up for my friend's wedding shower and to see my bestie. It turned into quite a travel extravaganza. There were so many little aspects of the trip to plan to make it work that I ended up having to take a 6am flight out of Birmingham which meant I needed to leave my place at 3am - therefore had to wake up at 230am. The night before I forced myself to go to bed at 7pm (I didn't sleep super well, but I got a good bit). The 2 hour drive to Birmingham wasn't much fun, especially thanks to heavy fog and critters.

The travel was worth it in the end because my friend's wedding shower was superb and very elegant. It was so good to see Jenn and celebrate with her.
After the shower Colleen and Kyle picked me up and we drove up to Rhode Island. I love Autumn in New England, the leaves and foliage were beautiful. That night despite having been up since 230am I went out on the town. I was too tired I was delirious and mixing that with some alcohol was a sloppy combination.

The next day Colleen and I went to her family's place outside of Boston to watch the Patriots game which luckily they won. I got to catch up with a bunch of Rhode Island peeps the rest of the night...good times.

Monday we did some shopping and got lunch at Friendly's...yum! I forgot to mention that I drank a TON of Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffee!! The travel home was less fun since I had nearly missed my connection...I got to the gate 10 minutes before we took off-i had that stress, especially since I was in the airport I just got wrapped up in a phone call.

My friend Codi babysat Freddie and they had a glorious time bonding while I was away. Good times had by all!

Since I've been back in Alabama it's been rainy and gross. Boo to the lack of good Autumn weather.

My crazy, but lovable sister decided today to buy a ticket to fly in THIS Saturday. I think I successfully lured her into my David Cook web! Saturday evening there is a home Auburn Football game and Sunday is my David Cook concert/Georgia State Far...PLUS that night I'm gonna take her to improv. She is actually staying this Thursday...and it's gonna be awwwwsome.

I promise a blog about my CT/RI trip will be coming has just been SUPER busy.

Well Hello October

Wow September flew by...usually they drag. BUSY BUSY around here. Trying to cut through my to-list at the moment. Tomorrow we are hosting a state-wide orientation conference so I really won't be in the office. Then this weekend I am off to Connecticut & Rhode Island. I'm going to my friend Jenn's wedding shower. I'm not able to go to the wedding, but I really wanted to see her and congratulate her so I'm glad I can attend the shower. Then I'm spending the rest of the weekend with Colleen!

Listen to my crazy travel plans. My flight leaves at 6am on Sunday from Birmingham. 6am that means I am waking up at 2am blah. However with a layover I won't get to CT until Noon which is when I needed to be there. My plan is to go to sleep when I get home from work tomorrow - we'll see how that works out. I did buy the 9th Sookie Stackhouse book to read so I will be all caught up. I also bought the new Dan Brown book, but I don't anticipate starting that til at least next week.My fabulous friend and fellow blogger Codi will be walking and feeding Freddie while I'm away. He really hates the kennel so since it's only 3 days I think he can manage for the most part. Plus I bought him this awesome piece of raw hide that I'm SURE will keep him busy.

After work today I'm getting a haircut. My friend (and also fellow blogger too) Michelle gave me a gift certificate she got for a free haircut/shampoo/blow out because she didn't want to cheat on her hairdresser. I have no problem cheating, plus it's just a cut. I'll go back to my new girl in town for color in November - and since my hair is so dark these days I'm going to have her put in a couple of dark blue pieces which I am really excited about!

I gave my blog a minor facelift to go with the new season. Fall is here - it means hot tea/coffee, soup, sweaters wahoo!

P.S. Last weekend my fabulous friend Natalie aka Natty Lite came to visit from Atlanta and we had a blast catching up, going out (The Velro Pygmies were in town and I managed to catch their attention a time or two ::wink::) and ever scored free tickets to the game (we only stayed til halftime because it was rainy and gross, plus we were killing Ball state).
