HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAURA!
One of my close friends Laura celebrated her birthday yesterday! We went to a really fun wine bar on Thursday night to celebrate her! Laura and I met at Baylor in PAD but didn't become close friends until law school when we were put in the same section and shared almost all the same classe first year. She was my study buddy for many a final. Laura is a great friend and I'm so thankful to have her in my life as well. She and I share many a memory from Vegas, Galveston, long convos, many laughs, bar study fun, and many many more. Happy birthday girl!
Did I mention March is the Month of Birthdays! Love it!
Okay back to eating lunch - i'll post about my weekend fun later tonight :)
Yay: High level of productivity today, which is great!
Dang: Hurt finger.

On another note - Sic Em Bears! Thanks Jen McCrady for showing me that (it is super easy and I feel slightly stupid for not knowing how to do that, ah well). The Bears are doing an awesome job in their current tournies - Men going to NYC for the final four for the NIT and the Lady Bears in the sweet 16! Who says Baylor sucks at sports - yea eat your words now! Sic Em!

- Patrick's MRI on Saturday (bad car wreck, poor boy :()
- Alisa's Birthday Party fun on saturday night!

Yay: Finally not feeling sleepy.
Dang: Ear ache.

Up close and personal!
On Tuesday one of my besties celebrated her 26th birthday!
Happy Birthday Elaine Foxy Flores!
I share many a wonderful memory with Elaine, so many that I can't encompass them all here, but here are a few:
- Zeta and all the functions/exec meetings/chapter meetings/pledging together
- Trip to Williamsburg, VA, Denver, CO
- Surviving law school together (even though we were in totally separate states, we wallowed together in the work load every day via email, and that hasn't change now its just transferred to real world work)
- Friday lunches, Spice, Friends episodes, Gilmore Girls, Cornbread Salad, Baylor fball games, Crickets, and many many more.
I'm so thankful to have Elaine as one of my friends for her encouragement, support, wittyness, laughter, advice and much more.
yay: free meds

This is Patrick and I's weekly tuesday tradition - he comes over from work at about 9, I save him whatever dinner I cooked, he eats, and we watch the biggest loser. We both enjoy the show!
Wednesday: Rodeo! This year I didn't go to as many rodeo shows that I normally do. I had the opportunity to go see Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, and Taylor Swift, but things arose that prevented those three. I was glad when Laura invited me to go see Gary Alen on Wed! She, Jen, and I went to eat at Pei Wei, and then caught most of the rodeo action - which I love and secretly wonder what life would be like as a cow girl livin on the rode doing the rodeo circuit. Gary Allen did a great job performing, although he comes across outwardly as an alternative rocker. Had a great time and wish I could have seen more performances.
Thursday: Kayla's Bday dinner/drinks. We all met up at this outdoor bar last night for Kayla's bday and to see Hunter as he is newly returned from a year in Iraq.
On the Plate:
Tonight i'm going bowling with Kate, Steve, Patrick and some other friends. Should be a good time. I did take bowling at baylor, doesn't mean I am any good.
Saturday - lots of errands, then hanging out with friends.
Not a lot planned this weekend which is sometimes how I like it!
Dang: Sleeping through my trainer session this morning, oops.

Last week my mom came into town to visit for the week. We had such a great time! On Tuesday night I met her and my sister/bro inlaw for dinner at my mom's fave Pearland establishment Las Rosas. On Wed. i took a half day and went shopping at the outlets with my mom and sis. We spent a good part of the afternoon shopping! That night we had dinner at my mom's favorite houston thai restaurant, Thai Pepper, and then I had them over for yummy dessert and champagne afterwards. Thursday my mom and kate met me for lunch downtown and that night we I wasn't feeling hot and had to stay at work late, so I ended up just eating dinner w/ them at Kate's house. I had a great time and I miss her so much!
This past weekend Patrick and I went to Boerne. Did I mention Boerne is one of my most favorite places in the world. It's so pretty and relaxing. That night we had dinner and just hung out inside (it was fuh-reezing outdoors). His brother Travis and his wife Kara and their 4 kids were in Boerne as well. The next day the girls went shopping and the boys did their thing, whatever that is. That night we watched two movies (Australia and Cold Mountain). I enjoyed both since I hadn't seen either, no one else really did other than Patrick's dad who picked the movies. Sunday we lazed around then headed back that afternoon to Houston. too bad the weather wasn't nicer b/c I could have used a day at the pool.
This week is pretty busy at work, but should make the weekend come sooner (even though i have nothing major planned this weekend, which isn't a bad thing).
My Callie is currently sitting at the door meowing b/c she thinks I left when I just opened the door to put trash outside. Poor thing. Oh okay, no worries, she found me and is sitting on my shoulder looking at my computer as I type this.
I'm watching Big Love right now - I like this show a lot!
Yay: Rodeo tomorrow night!
Dang: Stupid cold.

#1: Happy Birthday Can-DICE :)
Candice is an amazing friend. She and I were roommates at good ole BU for two years! She lived in the bedroom down the hall from me at our apt at UP. I am blessed to call Candice a friend. We spent many a late night chatting, watching silly TV, eating chips and salsa from Chili's, and many many more memories. Candice is now in texas and I'm so happy one of my roommates from college came back to this state :) I am so glad to have her in my life!
#2: Happy Birthday Heid!
Happy belated birthday Heidi :) Heidi is an awesome person. She and I shared a room for two years at BU. She was an awesome "room" mate and put up with my messyness (me, messy, never). We shared many a late night talk, and laughs - including a re-enactment of protons and electrons (don't ask), gymnastics late night during rush in our apt, which i'm sure our downstairs neighbors loved, all the fun Zeta events, encouragement and support during LSAT and Exec, and many more fun memories. I am blessed to have her in my life and wish we talked more, hopefully that'll change soon!
#3: Happy Birthday Sarah! (today is her birthday!)
Happy Birthday Sarah!!! You are such a wonderful person. I have such great memories with you from college, most of them involve laughing and being silly, playing pranks on the boys downstairs, common grounds conversations, interesting fellows, visits to Texas after you moved away, and many many more memories. You are an awesome friend and I'm blessed to have you in my life (and to share the same name of cours ;) )
I know its been a while since I've posted. No worries I'll do a big update in a few days :) Until then...
yay: Mom visiting!
