Catching up.

I have been so absent from blog-world lately! I have missed reading all my favorite blogs and need to catch up. This time of year is just so nuts - as I'm sure it is for all of you. I love it though. It's without a doubt the most wonderful time of the year!

So let's see, where did I leave you? Well my bestest and I had lots of good girly fun together last week. We had a great time at the Georgia/Georgia Tech game that Saturday. Although, we did have a really scary experience trying to get to our seats and missed the entire first quarter in the process. Those Georgia Tech grads are always chanting about being a "hell of an engineer" or whatever. Well it was one hell of an engineer (or crack-smoker) who designed that damn stadium. We apparently went in a gate where we could not get to our seats. The people taking our tickets didn't bother to tell us this. And we didn't think it mattered - I mean, our beautiful stadium in Athens is user friendly. Well, we soon figured out that there was no direct access to our section from where we entered. So we found the section closest to ours with access and decided to go in there and we'd scoot on over to our section once inside. OK so apparently what we were heading for was the student section. And everyone else there had the same idea I guess because it was packed in the corridor and got more and more packed - yet we weren't moving forward. It then got to the point where we were being crushed. It quickly went from "OK this is nuts" to "OK this is SCARY." I felt like my ribs were going to be crushed because the idiots behind us kept pushing and pushing. I definitely see how people get killed in these situations. Finally the cops broke it up and started forcing people back. I don't know what the hell took them so long. A few girls were shaken up. It was definitely scary - I'm sure you could pick up your feet and be carried along with the crowd. If I had been pregnant, I would've been terrified. And being surrounded by drunk idiots only made it worse.

We did finally get to our seats though - at the 2nd quarter. This involved being escorted out by stadium security to the proper gate. So I'll say it once and be done with it... Attention Georgia Tech fans - your stadium sucks ass!

So that was Saturday. We were of course beat by the end of the day. Sunday, bestest and I hosted a trunk show/open house. I need to upload those pics... her stuff was displayed so beautifully! Lots of fun goodies! We had a disappointing turnout, but the weather was crappy and it was a holiday weekend. We still managed to have fun though!

Monday morning we had fun being lazy. We got going finally and went down to Phipps and then later to Discover Mills. Bestest scored a Lilly dress for less than $30 at Off 5th, so she was thrilled! Monday night we went with the hub to our favorite little Mexican joint by our house. Tuesday was more of the same... just piddling around. We hit a few stores and then we stopped by Atlantic Station on the way to the airport and had a quick dinner at The Grape. We had such fun but it was all over so quickly! It made me miss you more, bestest! Such a tease, you are.

What else is going on? Well, the hub is once again trying to one-up me by having knee surgery this Friday. It is now definitely official... this household wins the 2007 Medical Disasters Award. By Christmas, we'll both have had two surgeries this year (he had hernia surgery back in March - not sure if I ever mentioned that one). Mine were more expensive though, so I totally win. His surgery comes at the worst time possible though - Christmas season! I'm co-hosting a party the night after his surgery, so I'm going to have to leave him at home. What a horrible wifey I am! His mom is coming down though, so I'm not leaving him alone. Then we have another party Saturday night. I was planning on not going, obviously - but the hub is insisting that I go. So who knows - that may be a gametime decision. Then our small group is having its Christmas get-together Sunday evening. I really don't know if he'll be up for it or not. Poor thing! And then if that isn't enough, Christmas Bride's wedding is the following weekend. (And my dress, by the way, is GINORMOUS. At least 3 sizes too big. Let's hope my seamstress lady can work a miracle.) So will the hub be tagging along on crutches that whole weekend? I just don't know. We don't really know what to expect. I just hope he can come to the wedding at least... I really don't know much of anyone else there. Selfish reasons of course for wanting him to be there!

Well I'm making progress on my Christmas shopping, but I haven't wrapped the first thing. I really need to get started on that this weekend. So much to do though... I'm finishing up a Christmas card order this week. It's good money, but they're kinda boring to make. Ho hum. I've got some other items for some spring brides that I've got to get out this week. Once I get those things done, I'm pretty much in the clear for a while. Then I can totally focus on Christmas stuff.

So I also wanted to tell y'all about my latest online obsession! (This is the most random post, I know.) I just got into this last week... Spark People. It's like myspace for health and nutrition. I had never heard of it before, but there are a ton of people on it! Maybe some of you are on it! I actually just stumbled upon the site because I was on google trying to find a good online daily calorie tracker/counter. SparkPeople definitely had the best one. A lot of sites want to charge you - which is just dumb. So I initially signed up on SparkPeople just to use the nutrition tracker thing, but now I'm totally obessed with the whole site! It is super fun. And you can also track your vitamin intake and whatever else you want to track. It amazed me to see how I'm not getting enough vitatmins in each day. I added some Luna Bars this week and that has helped a ton. And my prenatal vitamins also help. I add those in as a "food" so the nutrients are accounted for each day. I'm not trying to lose any weight - I really don't even know how much I weigh as I never step on a scale (except when forced to at the doctor). I'm just trying to be generally healthy and maintain my weight. I mean I'm 30 now y'all. It all goes to hell from here. Anyway, check it out if you have any weightloss, nutrition, or fitness goals you'd like to keep up with online - it's a very cool online community.

This post is entirely too long and random, I know! But I had several things to spit out. Well I best get back to work and also catching up on your blogs... I'll be back later with some trunk show pictures and such.

I am not a UGA fan, I'm a Clemson fan, but I agree-the GA Tech stadium SUCKS! I hate going there! Otherwise, glad you had a great weekend with your best friend! Sorry to hear about the surgery for your hubby. Hope it goes well.

Glad you had fun with your bestest. I have a small group from church too! Yet another thing in common!

Sounds like a wonderful weekend.
Good luck with your husband's surgery!

- I know what you mean about bridesmaid's dresses...I had to alter two this year, not as bad as my friend who had to get 2 basically re-made (for about $60.00) because the size was so off. Argh!
