Craft Season & Home Upgrades

There are always sooo many craft shows in the winter time it seems! Or maybe its just me? Anyway, my mom called me Saturday morning and asked if I wanted to join her for our town’s craft show at the new community center. Of course, I wanted to go! I quickly got ready and we headed out. There was plenty to see, and of

Friday was an exciting time! My school planned a trip down to NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center to network and learn about their Optics department (what my degree will be in). It was definitely very interesting to see what can be done with the degree there and the types of things they get to work on. They had some really awesome projects they showed us!

Brews and Ground Beef

Where has my motivation gone?  More on that tomorrow…  You’ll see the motivation wasn’t here this weekend though.  It started off on Friday with Happy Hour!  A coworker is leaving and I didn’t know (been out of the loop) so off we went to say goodbye.  I tried a new beer (Palm).  It was ok, a little uninteresting for to me.  Happy Hour was at

Hectic Labor Day

Yesterday was just hectic.  A good word for it.  I felt like I didn’t get anything done!  I had wanted to get up early and work out but we had stayed up super late the night before.  I value my sleep so we slept in and got a solid 8 hours.  Rob and I decided we would eat breakfast at home since its faster and

Food Blog 9/2: A Day Off!

I survived!

Wow what a weekend!  I have gotten a lot of nothing done too.  Haha.  Friday, I was busy all day.  I had to go to school for orientation but it got canceled early due to the hurricane so we only got half way through.  That means I still haven’t registered!  Ack!  Classes were supposed to start tomorrow but now they start Tuesday.  That means I
