Glory Days Are Here Again!!!!

OMG!!! I am so excited about our President Elect! As expected, I was glued to the tv last night.

My dad called and wanted to know how the local elections were coming so I had to send him updates via text. Billy and I were on the phone when the networks called Obama as President. So exciting. I asked Billy if it was ok for me to go to bed. He said to wait for the concession speech. I did and when I woke up this morning Obama was still our future President!!! How cool is that?

People were calling up until midnight last night. I think everyone was just as excited for the election as they were for the World Series.

I was so proud of America last night. People are finally starting to wake up and take note of what is going on around them.

God Bless America!

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

Happy Election Day! I swear I think I look forward to this day more than any other.

Regardless of who you are voting for, I hope you go out and vote today. Well, I'd prefer that you vote for my candidate, but I suppose I'd be happy if you just go vote!

I don't know about you, but I will be glued to the tv tonight. The past two presidential elections I went to bed thinking the winner was clearly identified only to wake up the next morning with a President America didn't elect!!! What's up with that?!

Happy Voting!!!

GO OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Funny how you can forget about aspirations...

So, Thursday night Steph and I went to McFadden's for our Temple Season Ticket Holder Kickoff Party. I had totally forgotten about my dream to become a Temple Owl Dancer!!! I am so excited now that my dream is renewed. I was in total admiration of the young fit girls as they were shaking their groove thangs! I am so ready to drop it like it's hot!

The weekend...

I had a very busy weekend! My friend Melissa and I tore up South Jersey Friday night! First we met my sister and Gina out then we continued on. Had tons of fun and broke lots of hearts. ;)

Saturday I went to the Manayunk Arts Festival with Kelly from work. I always like going to the festival. Bought a couple of gifts and even a couple of things for me. Had lunch at a cool Irish bar too. Saturday night I went to dinner with my brother and his fiancee and my sister and Gina. Then I went to a friend's. ;)

Sunday I ran some errands, did laundry and ironed. I also had dinner at my aunt's house because it was my cousin Caroline's birthday. She is just the sweetest girl and I can't believe she's 12! She promptly reminded me that I was only 28 when we went to China to get her!!! That was a little depressing.

Needless to say, I'm very tired this morning. Glad it's only a 4 day week!

I had the BEST Monday EVER!!!

I’m typically not a big fan of Mondays, however, yesterday was pretty awesome. I have been sick for a while with a kidney infection and yesterday was the first day I actually felt a little better and didn’t have a fever. Of course, I worked through the whole illness because I just started the new job, so I really didn’t want to call out sick so soon, which basically prolonged the illness. Then, yesterday afternoon I get a text msg. from my friend Natty that she was coming to visit and she would be at my house by the time I got home from work. I used to see her almost daily when I lived in PA, but recently I haven’t seen her nearly as much as I’d like. So, it was a nice surprise that she decided to pick up and visit. Shortly after that, Gina sent a text saying she was taking care of dinner and ordered pizzas. Nice! Once I got home, my sister told me that our other friend Melissa was also coming over. So, it turned out to be a great night. Of course, Gracie was entertaining as usual and loved the new audience. Besides that, Natty brought over nail polish and gave Gracie a “tropical” manicure of pink nails with yellow tips!!!

Then to top everything off…I come into work this morning to an email from my BFF Steph who’s in Spain for 3 weeks! I’m so excited for her and it was great to hear from her!!! I can’t wait for her to get back!

I’m going to try to be a better blogger. I really want to be. Sometimes life just gets in the way.

The weekend...

Spent Friday finishing up my craft room. I love it!!! Will post pics soon. Spent Saturday at MLPA cropping. It felt so good to be working on stuff again and seeing friends that I haven't seen in a while. Many laughs!!! Sunday, Steph and I took a sewing class at Spool on South St. We are making a tote and I picked out the cutest Amy Butler fabric. Will post pics when its done. I've always wanted to learn how to sew because my Grandmother and her sisters were seamstresses and I never learned how to sew!!! Terrible, I know. Spent the rest of the day at home with the fam. Then Krissy and I started to get our drink on and got drunky enough for me to break out the rollerblades and have Krissy pull me around the neighborhood on a scooter! I nearly peed my pants!!! It was insane!
