Weekly Weekend Update

Good Monday Morning blogging world!!

All of my big work events for the year 2009 are over and I feel very good!

I had several blog friends email me and wish me luck with my events and tell me that they had been praying for me. It was so sweet. However, almost all of them said they had no idea what my events were. Haha.

I didn't mean to be so vague but I guess I was.

Basically I plan 4 events for a University's Homecoming. One reunion, One awards ceremony, another smaller ceremony and a Tailgate Party the day of the homecoming football game.

I really enjoy my job and I'm glad I get to do something that I like. The closer I get to the events, the more anxious, stressed, and whiny I get, just because I am so nervous, but overall I enjoy it.

All of the events went so smoothly and everything was great. Homecoming 2009 was a success!

Here are some pictures of the flowers from the awards ceremony on Friday. The flowers were so pretty:

Here is the stage piece:
This is at the end of Friday (a very long day, I look like trash). These were my beautiful flowers that I received from my sweet husband, and some ladies who are alums of the University. By the way, I didn't wear flip flops with my outfit that day, these are my 'gotta get out of these flipping heels shoes.
Can you tell our school colors are blue and yellow?!?!?

Friday night Luke and I went out to eat and then went to a student Homecoming event at the University. I just LOVE Homecoming (especially the events that I don't have to plan!)

Saturday morning Luke and I woke up bright and early and headed out to meet the rest of my office to get ready for the tailgate.

We had lots of free food and fun activities at the tailgate. Luke walked around and took lots of pictures, but I semi-feel weird about posting them because they are all of people I don't know (people who are enjoying the tailgate) so I don't want to post their picture on the Internet without permission.

However here is one of me and my student worker. She is just so cute, she was on the Homecoming Court.


We left the game around 5:00 and came home and crashed! I didn't leave the couch until I got up to move to the bed!

So now it's over and I feel good!

I fully intend to go back to my regular blogging self. I have missed it.

However, right now I have a full DVR, a laundry pile that is sky high, a completely mess apartment, and a VERY empty pantry and refrigerator. I need to get to work.

Oh, and did I mention that my google reader total is in the upper hundreds?!?!

I have a lot of work ahead of me.

Hope you all had a great weekend!
