Heavens to Betsy, life is good!

Okay, yeah, I admit, it's been a few days. But I didn't have anything super duper awesome to write about.

I do now.

We had a puppy for a while! His name is Chase and he's a ten week old chocolate lab. It's for Cherie's sister in California so we kept him the week until Cherie's parent's went home today. He's such a cutie. I actually kinda miss him. But not his stink. He had some serious stink haha!!

I was at work Thursday and I got a phone call from the front desk asking what my dad's name was. I told her and she hung up. I thought, "Dang, that girl is a weirdo!" Haha, a couple minutes later I get a knock on the door of my classroom and she was there holding a giant cookie! My dad had it delivered to work and it was under his name (which was why they were confused and needed to know if it was really my dad). Well, it's delicious!

Thanksgiving was really good. I went to my roommate's sister-in-law's family's house for lunch and it was nice. I felt completely comfortable with the family and it was just nice to spend time with a family, even if it's not my own. After I sufficiently stuffed myself we were all just talking I got a phone call. From a boy...haha! I had asked him to come with me to the lighting of Main Street on Friday night, and he was calling to say he wouldn't be able to make it, but then asked me to go out with him Saturday night. Woohoo! I'll take it!

Friday shopping. I've never done this before. I had a tiny budget. But I went to Down East and got a new pair of slacks for $2.75!! And I got a free cami with it!

(It would have made more sense to just take a picture of me in it, especially since my hair is all cute and stuff, but frankly, I'm in my pajamas and don't want to get out of them again! And the pants are actually a dark brown, but that is impossible to show you from their website. And they're a size 6. Booya)

The lighting was so fun! This is a picture I grabbed from the news, but it's so much prettier in real life!

So tonight I went out to Jon Schmidt's concert. It was AMAZING!! I've gone now for 4 years in a row. I was so excited, and Derek and I had awesome conversation, which is always fabulous! Afterward we went to get some really good hot chocolate, but Cocoa Bean was closed (grr! I hate that they close at 10!!) so we went to Maverick and got some there. Not as good, but still delicious!

Ahh, and my boys are back from vacation. I missed them.

And I have another date--with someone else--Tuesday :) But Derek said he wants to go to Cocoa Bean another day, so I guess that can count as a sorta plan for another date. Yeah, I'll take it!!
