King Tut Exhibit

Last weekend Dave and went to go see the King Tut exhibit and learn the history of a 9 year old boy who took over the throne and led Egypt for 10 years until his very mysterious death. We learned a lot and witnessed some really neat and creepy things like beautiful jewelry and canopic jars (eeky part), saw coffins made of solid gold, 3000 year old jewelery, chairs, furniture, and paintings. If you have a chance, definately visit. Since photography is not allowed, i am not able to show you any pictures however we took a few in downtown before we got to the museum and took some pictures on our way out. Enjoy!

Drunk by the Pool!

Seriously, one of the funniest things I have ever seen in my life!

Possible Mergers!

I got this from my S-I-L sometime last week but I think this one deserves a post since I find this hilarious!

For all of you with any money left, be aware of the next expected mergers so that you can get in on the ground floor and make some BIG bucks.

Watch for these consolidations in 2008:

1.) Hale Business Systems, Mary Kay Cosmetics, Fuller Brush, and W. R. Grace Co. will merge and become: Hale, Mary, Fuller, Grace.

2.) Polygram Records, Warner Bros., and Zesta Crackers join forces and become: Poly, Warner, Cracker.

3.) 3M will merge with Goodyear and become: MMMGood.

4. Zippo Manufacturing, AudiMotors, Dofasco, and Dakota Mining will merge and become: ZipAudiDoDa.

5. FedEx is expected to join its competitor UPS and become: FedUP.

6. Fairchild Electronics and Honeywell Computers will merge together to become: Fairwell Honeychild.

7. Grey Poupon and Docker Pants, after their merger, are expected to become: PouponPants.

8. Knotts Berry Farm and the National Organization of Women will merge and become: Knott NOW!

And finally....

9. Victoria's Secret and Smith & Wesson will merge and do business under the new name: TittyTittyBangBang

OH, YOU KNOW YOU ARE GOING TO FORWARD THIS ONE! Hope you enjoyed the chuckle for the day....

Granny Visit!

Friday night we went to see Granny and to wish her a Happy 80th in person. Prior to that David and I had plans to stop in Mesquite and grab some dinner (sushi) and luckily Susan and Derek were not busy so they joined us. Granny was happy to see us and was happy to pose for some pictures. Here they are! BTW, that watermelon was grown in our backyard...i just wanted to stick that shameless plug somewhere in this blog.

Susan G Komen Race for the Cure 2008

Yep. Got up at 5am and made it NorthPark this moring by 6:45.

30,000 people showed up to the Race for the Cure. 20,000+ ran/walked.
Great event overall. However, when I crossed the finish line, the final clock was blocked so I did not get to see my time. However, times should be posted on the website in a bit and I will update. I know for a fact that I beat my all time record. I also know that it was not a 5K we ran, it was almost a 6K so obviosly it will have an effect on my overall time and rank.


Stay tuned

Another Vacation

Well, another vacation is in the plans. I will be heading to Denver for work in late November and luckily the same weekend that I will be in Denver is David's long weekend. So, we decided to make it a nice getaway from Dallas and busy work.

We are heading to Denver for Thursday, Nov 14th. I will be working all day Friday and Friday afternoon we will be heading to Breckenridge for Friday night, Saturday night, Sunday and heading home late Sunday night.

Dave has never been skiing or snowboarding so it will be a first and exciting time for him. I will try to teach him but will probably end up just getting an instructor for him so they can teach him all the proper things.

Breckenridge is a beautiful resort town and I personally never skiied in Colorado so, I am also thrilled to venture out on new territories.

Yay, only 1 more month to go!

Central Texas Fair in Waco, TX

Two weekends ago, David and I went to see our dear college friends Monyka and Ryan in Waco. Monyka and Ryan left for Waco a little over a year ago to pursue excellent carreers in chemistry with some really big companies.

We don't get to see each other much but when we do, we go all out.

They were wonderful hosts and took awesome care of us. Thanks Monyka and Ryan.
Check out the fun for yourself! :)

Please keep granny in your prayers!

My only granny is sick and that makes me very very sad! she has a cold with a terrible chest-breaking caugh. My mom is the best, she took off work and took care of my grandmother! I hope she gets better, please say a prayer for my grandma!

Rusty's Graduation

Last weekend Rusty graduated from Puppy Class. he did so good. He can sit, lay, bow, twist,spin, walk on a leash, drop food on command and a few other simple things. I know these things sound silly but we could not get Rusty to do anything. He is so hyper and completely ingored us. Scott, our teacher was able to teach us to teach Rusty in 8 simple weeks. We start an intermediate class on Oct 18th. Wish us luck. Monica came along and helped us take pictures. :) Here are pictures from the graduation ceremony.

Group picture with the other dog that graduated (only 2 dogs graduated, class started with 4 dogs)
