Hey guys! I haven’t written a What’s up in a few weeks! We’ve been super busy lately!
I am so super in love with our new dog, Gizmo. I could just snuggle him ALL THE TIME! I miss him when we’re apart, just like I do my other two boys. 🙂
Aaron and I hosted a chili cookoff this past weekend at our home. I made two different chili’s and placed the two lowest. What’s up with that?? My mom took first place with her Hunka Burnin’ Love chili. LOL!
Sunday was a lazy day with my mom, Josh and my bestie and lil bestie. We ate and laid around watching tv. We never get days like this and it was FABULOUS!!!
Today is my brothers birthday. Last year he turned 40 and had his second knee replacement the day after. This year he’s having his thyroid removed tomorrow. Hopefully next year will be surgery free! Here’s a real throwback picture of us. A cracked up Polaroid.
This weekend we have the Run for the Stripes to benefit Neuroendocrine Tumors. We walked it last year too, but this year we have a whole team! I’m so excited to raise money for a great cause and spend time with family at the zoo.
Hey, hey! I know, I know, it’s Thursday, but I was too busy to break yesterday.
My little cousin gets married this weekend and I’m so excited! It’s a barn style wedding with bbq for dinner. Exactly what I was planning for Aaron and my wedding, but had to forgo when we moved our ceremony up a year. I’m excited to see everything! I made all of her signs and her bridesmaids jewelry. It’s so fun to see everything come to fruition!
I’m getting to spend some time with my mama tonight. We’re getting pedicures and I’m getting my nails painted.
We had Aaron’s 6 month appointment on Tuesday. Everything looks great, his scans are clear and we were cleared to get a DOG!!! We decided that we want a dog who is already house trained, not a puppy, one that we can take for walks at parks, etc. So I walk in to work yesterday and the girls up front asked how everything went. I told them he was excellent and that we are now allowed to get a dog. One of the secretaries was like, TAKE MY DOG!! Her and her son are just not dog people. They don’t enjoy taking him for walks, and he’s alone alot. He’s a pure bred Bichon Frise, so he hypoallergenic and doesnt shed! He’s house trained and wee wee pad trained since he’s alone all day. So we are taking him Saturday night after the wedding and seeing how he does overnight in our home and then all day Sunday. We’ll take him for walks and love on him all day! Then see where it goes from there.
Ok, back to work. that’s what’s up with me, What’s up with you?
It’s hump day! I have one day left of crazy work and then a long weekend to recoup. We’ll be in Cape May, NJ Friday through Sunday with Aaron’s family. Tomorrow night my girlfriends and I are getting together to celebrate 3 of our birthdays from August. I’m excited for some girl time. I’ve already planned my meal, since it’s once of my favorite restaurants. Blt salad with filet. Yum! Not much else is going on in Lori Land. Lol! Enjoy your weekend!
What’s up? I’m in the middle of hell week for work and I’m exhausted!!! I’ve been starting my early mornings with exercise to keep me strong and good wholesome foods to keep my body happy. My brain is overloaded. I’m actually getting ready to meditate to hopefully calm my mind and get a restful night sleep. Hope you are having a great week!
Hey y’all! I hope you have had a fabulous week! It’s been busy for us! My birthday was on Monday so my family took me to a yummy dinner after work.
Joshua moved back to school yesterday. This mama is sad. His new dorm is so nice though! I know he is going to have a great year!
Work has been crazy, too. I’ve worked out every day this week, even on my birthday, which I totally could have used as an excuse. 🙂 What better way to start my 42nd year! So, all in all, Life is great.
Tonight we’re going to a baseball game. One of my favorite past times.
tomorrow is mom and Lori day. We’re getting facial (her) and massage (me), then pedicures and finally a tea party at the English Tea House. My FAVORITE! I like to pretend I’m fancy and demure. Of course, I’ll probably be in yoga pants instead of a pretty dress, since we’re going straight from our pampering.
Sunday we are joining some of my friends from high school at a bar on the river to watch a band. I’m totally excited to see old friends!!
So there’s a recap of my week, since I slacked on all of my posts. Is anyone reading these blog posts anyway? If you are, comment below! Let me know I’m not talking to myself!!
