Last night Abbey and I went to the Miss Outstanding Teen Pageant in Vicksburg. We ate supper at my parent’s house and then went with my mom and sister. I think she really enjoyed it. It was her first pageant to go too. Hopefully we will be able to get tickets to the Miss Mississippi Pageant in July and I can take her back. Vicksburg really does a great job putting these on.
In and week from tomorrow we will be traveling to Atlanta, GA to catch in a few Cardinal baseball games (or Braves games if you ask Dennis). Anyway, I have no doubt that the Cardinals are going to win all the games. Sorry Dennis, but the Braves are stinking this year.
Saturday will pretty much be for traveling. We will probably just walk around some and get something good to eat that night. Sunday we are going to Six Flags. It has been years since I last went to one. I am very excited. It will bring back many childhood memories. The first time I ever rode a roller coaster was at Six Flags over St. Louis. I even remember the name of it, The Ninja.
Monday we are going to the new Aquarium and then seeing an IMAX show that afternoon. We will be going to game one at night. www.georgiaaquarium.org
Tuesday is July 4th so we are keeping this day open. We aren’t sure what all will be open and what will be going on. Hopefully they will have something to celebrate the 4th. We will go to game 2 at night.
Wednesday is left open as well. Hopefully we will get to do a little shopping. My dad will kill us, but a little shopping never hurts anyone. Game 3 is this night.
Thursday we will be heading home. The drive will be a drag, but we will have had a great time. I will post pictures when we get back. Have a great weekend!
This weekend was a lot of fun. It was very busy though. Friday night we went to the Mississippi Braves Game. It was fun, but we didn’t get home until late. They had a fireworks show that we stayed and watched. On Saturday, Dennis’s mom came over and cooked lunch and Abbey and Brandon played on their slip-n-slide. They had fun but it made a mud hole in the yard. We went to Dennis’s grandmothers on Sunday to eat lunch and then went and saw Garfield at the movies. It was really cute and Abbey and Brandon thought it was funny.
Thaw as many tatar tots as you think you will need. Cut bacon strips in half. Wrap bacon around tatar tot and secure with a toothpick. Place on a baking sheet and broil for 3 to 5 minutes. Turn tatar tot over and broil another 3 to 5 minutes.
Dennis and I went to a Mississippi Braves Game with Eric, Dennis's roommate, and his family. We all had a good time sitting around talking. We decided to leave during the 9th inning because it was 102 degrees and we were all about to burn up. Other than the heat, it was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
This picture was made before a wedding that we went to a few weeks ago. Thought it would be nice to have a picture of us both dressed up. Dennis and I went to a family reunion on Saturday. I decided that we should take a picture.
I just finished reading a book that was great. The name of it is Something Blue by Emily Giffin. I can’t wait to get Something Borrowed and Baby Proof by the same author. If you like to read, you would really enjoy her books.
My roommate Lauren decided to join the blog world yesterday. She has been interested in them for awhile so I talked her into creating one on her own. She wasn’t sure what to write about and I told her some of the things I blog. My blogs not the greatest, but it sure is fun to have. I think she will be hooked in no time. I know that I love to post different things on mine. You can visit her blog at www.adayinthelifeofadramaqueen.blog.com.
1. I love Mexican food, especially El Sombrero. I ate there for lunch on Sunday, dinner Monday night, leftovers for lunch yesterday, and for lunch today. People tend to think I am crazy for eating there so much, but I love it. 2. I am going to Atlanta, GA in July. I can’t wait until it gets here. The Braves are playing the Cardinals (which is a family favorite) and Dennis is a Braves fan. The games should be interesting with 4 Cardinals fans and 1 Braves Fan. Go Cardinals!!! 3. Shopping is a girls best friend or at least most girls. I know that it is my favorite thing to do in my spare time. I need lots of money when I shop which I never seem to have. If I have money, I never find anything but when I am so broke I can always seem to find a million things. 4. I am getting hooked on Grey’s Anatomy. I am not much of a TV person (besides MTV) and everyone at work talked about Grey’s Anatomy and how great of a show it was. I decided to buy Season One and boy were they right. It is a really good show for all types of people. I am ready for Season Two to come out on DVD so that I can continue watching it. 5. Collecting recipes is a new fetish that I have. I love buying cookbooks and trying to make new things. Send me all of your recipes because I would love to try them out. 6. Over the last few weeks, I have been interested in new ways to decorate my apartment. I am getting tired of the same old stuff. My apartment’s not that big so I have to try not to over do it. I look for craft magazines in stores but can’t seem to find one that catches my eye. 7. It is hard to work during the summer months. Whenever I go out to lunch, it is always so hard to come back. I think about how I would love to be at the pool with an ice cold beer and a good book in my hand. This summer is especially hard because it is my first summer that I have had a real job. 8. I saw the 2006 Camry the other day and I am obsessed with it. I love the body style and the inside is really nice. I guess I will just have to keep dreaming because I just bought a car a year ago. 9. Sweet Tea is my favorite drink. There is nothing better then a big glass of it on a hot summer day. It always quenches my thirst. 10. The Hills is a new TV show on MTV that I watched on Wednesday nights. It is about Lauren, from Laguna Beach. From 9:00 to 9:30, there is silence in the apartment because Lauren, my roommate, and I are glued to the TV.
Dennis and I went and saw The Omen (www.headtheomen.com) last night at the movies. It was really good. I had expected it to be a lot scarier than it was. The theater was packed and so we had to sit up close but for the most part it was fine. Our necks weren’t hurting too bad.
Sunday we went to see The Break Up at the Madison Theater. It was my first time to see a movie there and it was really nice. I was very impressed. The Break Up was a good movie as well. Vince Vaughn is hilarious and he keeps you laughing during the entire movie. I didn’t like the way it ended because it leaves you hanging. You aren’t real sure whether they get back together or not.
Going to see 2 movies in one week is very unusual for me. Movies usually aren’t my thing, but there are several out that I have been wanting to see and more are coming out this summer. I am really starting to enjoy a variety of movies. I guess I am getting out of the whole chick flick only movies. Don’t get me wrong. I still like them. (Lauren should be really proud of me!!)
