I really must say that this has been a pretty fabulous weekend. Friday evening Mark hosted poker night, and pretty much everyone from that group was able to make it over for at least a little while. It was also Patrick's birthday, so I was glad we got to celebrate with him, too. So there was lots of drinking, playing video games (who knew Guitar Hero for Wii had a Rockband-ish game with drums and everything? and of course Mario Brothers!) and or course cards. There were 9 of us playing, and I'm proud to report that I took them all out and won the entire game. Horray for making money! Definately a fun night.
Saturday Kyle, Storm, Mark and Patrick decided to go snowboarding at Hidden Valley, and originally Holly and I were going to go along and watch them and drink alcoholic hot chocolate. We ended up deciding that sleeping in and being lazy sounded better, and just hung out at her house watching "Music & Lyrics" and drinking alcoholic hot chocolate. (And of course there was some gossiping involved!) It was a lot of fun, and we will be doing it again soon I think. :) Sat. evening Sam, Holly, Kara and I decided to go see "Bride Wars" at the new Fenton Great Escape theater. The theater is pretty nice, and the movie was fun too. Not a lot of thinking involved, but perfect for a night out with girlfriends. Afterwards we went back to Holly's and hung out talking about all kinds of stuff till almost 1am. Definately another fun night, and Sam declared that we should do it again, too. Fabulous day!
This morning I went to look at a few condos with Jamie again, and didn't see anything that was better than things we already saw. I'm still hoping to find one that I walk through and think, "this is the one." Sadly, that has not yet occured. There have been some that are close, but not quite there. Luckily I'm not in a situation where I have to find something immediately, so I have some time to keep looking for the one that is exactly what I want.
Next week at work I start getting to actually meet some of my team captains, and I'm excited to get our Team Captain week for Walk MS underway. It'll be another busy week, but next weekend is a 3-day weekend with Martin Luther King Jr. Day, so yay for that! I think this week will go by fast!

Happy New Year! I hope you enjoyed celebrating the end of 2008, and the fresh start of 2009. I did. I started out at Sam & Taylor's house for a bit, then headed over to the Neithe's annual new year's party. It was really good to see everyone, and I'm glad I got to ring in the new year with friends again. Plus some of them I hadn't seen in quite some time, so it was good to catch up. And of course I handed out a few trading cards and was told to stop talking shop :). Hey, at least its a job I like! lol. (I'll work on it guys, but really, my job is all about networking!) I think 2009 has lots of great potential for me. 2008 was kind of a transition year (new job, finished school, etc) and was a bit rough, so I'm hoping this year will be full of good things!
My last few days of 2008 were pretty good though! Sunday night I got to hang out with Abi and Paige. We went to dinner at the Hagy house, and it was good to catch up and hang out since I don't get to see those girls as much. Monday morning Abi and I went to work out. It was good to get moving again, and kind of reminded me that I missed it. (I will be working on this situation.) That afternoon I hung out with Krystal, and she was nice enough to run some errands with me and help with a little craft project. I made Sam a shirt that says "I can grow people! What's your superpower?" with iron-ons. I thought it turned out pretty cute - and I meant to take a picture of it before I gave it to her, but I was running late and this did not happen. So just use your imagination - purple letters with a blue/yellow pacifier translucent behind it. The Alamo bowl was that evening, so I actually got to see her and give it to her. She said she liked it, so I hope she really did! Mark, Sam and I went to meet Taylor for dinner that evening (he was working) and then went back to Mark's to watch the game on his new tv, of which he is quite proud. It's pretty fancy!
Tuesday was pretty uneventful, and that evening I went with Dan, Mark and Mike to Growlers for drinks, etc. We had a blast, and I am reminded how fun it is to see my friends on a regular basis. I really should implement the resolution about spending more time with them individually too. We'll see.
Tomorrow I go back to work - for one day - then its the weekend again. Sat I'm going to look at condos again with Jamie, and maybe grabbing lunch with Emily. Which would be a pretty fun afternoon. Here's how the rest of my week is shaping up: Tue at Kristen's because she's on call, Wed I'm getting my hair cut/colored (yay!) and maybe going to Biggie's, Thur. I have to work late (till like 8 maybe?) and then its Friday again. Work will be busy too as we kick of the event season. Whew, its going to be crazy!
