I'm leaving on a jet plane...

All my bags are packed (well, my bag- I'm only taking a carry on suitcase) and yes, I'm ready to go. :) It's hard to believe it's finally the day I'm going to Atlanta!! I'm looking forward to my "mini-vacation". I promise to bore you all with pictures and stories of my adventure next week! If I know you personally, please accept any collect calls from an Atlanta jail. ;) hehehe...

Last night I prepared for my trip by getting a MUCH NEEDED mani/pedi (yesterday was brutal). I went to a new place close to where I work. I don't know about you, but I also get a little nervous going to a new place for a manicure/pedicure (you never know what it will be like), but this place was great. Everyone was very friendly, and it was actually reasonably priced. I definitely will be going back!

I have some of the whitest legs I've ever seen!

Kim, the girl who painted my nails, convinced me to get green polish on my toes. It's something different, so I went for it! I did NOT put the green polish on my fingernails though. :)

Five Question Friday time!!

1. Have you ever visited another country?
I went to Mexico when I was a baby, but I don't remember it. So, I'm not going to count it! So, no, not yet. Hopefully one day! I just need to get a passport.

2. Where is the strangest place you have ever been?
When we were in college, my friend Mark was in a fraternity at the University of Texas in Austin (he lived in the frat house). I must say that a frat house is DEFINITELY a very strange place. I went to a Baptist college. Guys weren't even allowed in our dorms. It was weird going into the community bathroom at the frat house and having some random guy just step out of a shower in front of me as I walked by. Oh, the innocent little bubble world that I lived in. I think Mark still laughs about that story even to this day.

3. What is your favorite season?
I live in Texas. We don't have "normal seasons". ;) I know it's not one of the four typical ones, but I really like the Christmas season. I love everything about it. I'm one of those people that start decorating right after Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving night (or some point that weekend-depends on when the Texas/Texas A&M football game is) my sister Martha and I will watch It's A Wonderful Life. It's a tradition!

4. What song will always cheer you up?
Okay don't laugh. I know you will though. Since I was just speaking of Christmas, I guess I will have to say the song I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas always makes me smile. I don't know why. Even if it's in the middle of summer and I hear it (because it may, or may not, be on my iPod), I just start smiling. If you don't know the song, click here to hear it.

5. What Disney character do you resemble most?
Oh wow. I have no clue. Can I be a mixture of them? My mom always calls me Sleepy Beauty when she's trying to wake me up (yes, even now at age 32 my mother does that- I love it though). But she's my mother, she's biased. Of course she would say that. I have a big purse that I call my Mary Poppins bag. I also am very pale, so I could go by Snow White. And I can be forgetful at times, so I could be like Dory the fish in Finding Nemo. Wow, hard question!

Anyways, getting ready to head to the airport in a little bit. Again, if you wouldn't mind saying a prayer for me (I don't like flying), I would appreciate it. Hope everyone has a great weekend! If you hear of a 32 year old female arrested for trying to hug Chipper Jones, that might be me!! ;) Poor guy. He got hurt last week and is out the rest of the season. :( I think he needs a hug!!

To any new followers, I promise to check out your blogs when I get back next week. I do follow back!! :)

New Friend Fridays


  1. Just hopping by to say hi from, Serendipitously ME, F.R.O.G.

  2. Hi. Hope you have a great trip with no turbulence!! I looked at your profile and saw that we both love 'To Kill a Mockingbird' the book and 'Mary Poppins' the movie. :-) that is the most darling movie ever! Anyway, believe me, if I could send some of this rain down to TX I would surely do it! We had more rain and wind again last night. Time for a little sunshine!

    Have a great vacation! :-)

  3. I get compared to Snow White as well since I'm very pale with dark hair.

    Christmas is my FAVORITE time of year, but it's still not quite enough to make me like winter. Of course, if I lived somewhere that's not blizzard-prone, maybe I would change my mind. :)

  4. Have fun in Atlanta this weekend!!!
