The Working Girl

I think this is the first time in two weeks I have had time to check my blog, e-mail's, facebook, etc. OK, so that may be a little exaggerated, but not by much. I have been working my tail off at work recently. The past two weeks I have been getting to work by 6 a.m. and some night's not leaving till 8 p.m.

The good thing is I love it! It's fun work. I am not pushing papers at six a.m., I am setting up for a golf tournament or a breakfast for volunteers and my evening work consists of having a street party, socializing, eating yummy foods and listening to music. But somehow it is still exhausting. There is a lot of behind the scenes work to prepare for these fun events and at the end of the day I am beat.

To sum it all up, I am tired! I have never felt so tired in my life. I have developed an eye twitch which I have always heard it due to lack of sleep and stress and my poor right eye can't even open for a few minutes while I have a "twitch episode."

This weekend it no work but Jesse and I are volunteering for an organization called Family Health Care Clinic in order to raise money for women who can't afford yearly mammograms. And then in the evening we are attending a YMCA event. Should be fun, but no rest. I plan on catching up in December when work calms down, until then I will have an eye twitch.

Labor Day Weekend and New Things

First of all I have to say I LOVE Ikea! And I have grown more fond of it ever since we got a house that we needed to decorate. This past weekend Jesse and I went to Dallas, TX to visit his uncle and aunt, which they happened to be conveniently located close to an Ikea which was a major bonus.

We got to his uncles house late Friday night (no thanks to traffic), so we pretty much said our hellos and then crashed. Saturday was fun and eventful. We went to Ikea, ate at 5 guys burgers and fries (which Jesse loves), watched football, walked/drove around their beautiful neighborhood and went to a neighbor hood block party. Sunday we went to church with them and went downtown to eat and visit the place where president Kennedy was killed. We left Sunday afternoon to head back to Oklahoma and Monday we just relaxed, cleaned and got caught up before work started again.

Out and about in their neighborhood

X marks the spot...unfortunately this is where Kennedy was shot and killed.

Our new chair from Ikea, surprisingly really comfortable.
New lamps (Ikea) for the bedroom- we got the black and white shade.

I added some pops of color in our guest bathroom and I love it!
