Exciting/Stressful/Busy/Draining Week!

It's official...for the first time since I really started blogging, I feel like a TERRIBLE blogger!  I haven't posted anything since Monday night, and I totally missed my Thankful Thursday this week...Thursday posts are one of my favorites, and I really don't like missing them, but I guess everyone is entitled to an off week every now and then.  =)  I thought I'd take this opportunity to catch everyone up on what's been going on in mine and my friends' lives this week:
  • As I mentioned in a couple of posts recently, I spent last weekend in Knoxville visiting my mom and I did lots of shopping, and I spent lots of time with their dog, Peppermint.  On Saturday night, I had dinner with Andi and heard all about her honeymoon, which was very fun...however, I learned one important thing...if you ever go to Hawaii, NEVER EVER do the bike ride down the mountain.  =)  I also went to church with the fam which is always fun since there are TONS of people there that I am close to and I love to catch up with them!  I finished the trip off with lunch at one of my Knoxville favs with my mom, dad, and brother.

  • Another exciting event of last weekend is that Kathleen and Mickey got engaged!  For those that don't know, Kat is my BFF from grad school and she just so happens to be engaged to Mickey who is one of Patrick's good friends from college!  Should be tons of fun seeing their wedding come together next year!  Congrats guys!  =)
Please excuse the pale skin/tired look on my face...this picture was taken about 2 weeks before April 15!

  • Monday night was my Fantasy Football draft for my all girls league!  It was so much fun to draft with all the girls.  I somehow doubt there was as much trash talking as the boys league, but it was still lots of fun!
  • Also, on Monday night, my mom convinced me to walk a half-marathon with her in November.  Even though that seems soooooo long from now to me, it really is only 11 weeks away.  Therefore, I had to start training on Tuesday morning!  I guess that's one way to do it...commit before you have time to change your mind.  =)
  • On Wednesday, I went back to Knoxville for an accounting recruiting event called Meet the Firms (yes...CPAs are that cool).  It is always a fun trip to head back to my alma mater (the University of Tennessee) for this event, but it is also VERY tiring!  It really wears me out so much that it takes me a day or 2 to recover.
  • Thursday was a VERY happy day for me, because it was the day that I FINALLY got to see my beau after 3 long weeks of him being out of the country.  We celebrated by heading to the Tennessee Titans last preseason game (tickets courtesy of the CPA firm I work for).  It was a great time and the perfect way to celebrate him being back in the country! 
Both of us were pretty happy to see each other!  =)

It was great to see Reca and Aimee in line for the concession stand!  And special thanks to Reca for loaning us money...the credit card machine was broken!  YIKES!
My favorite Titans player -- #31 Cortland Finnegan
My second favorite Titans player -- #10 Vince Young
Well, besides working hard to try to finish all of my tax returns that are due by September 15, that's about all that's been going on in my life!  It's been really, really busy, but as you can probably tell about me, that's the way I like it!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day weekend!  Get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather and the final hoorah before Summer is officially over.  =(
