Follies, Superbowl, and Bloggy Birthdays!!!

Kim, me, and Rach

Okay, so I really don't have many pics. I do have everything in storage college related. :( Here is one pic that I always liked. It is from our "Cat in the Hat" show. For those of you who don't know what Master Follies is...well, I have no idea why they call it Master Follies. It's kind of a dumb name if you ask me, but...they didn't ask me, so they named it what they wanted to way before I was ever born. It is where the social clubs of LCU put on a choreographed musical act that has a theme. I guess that's the best way to describe it. There is a women's and men's division and the only thing you really win is bragging rights to "1st place" or "People's Choice" or you can always win second and go around saying "5,000 people can't be wrong." lol...sorry, I may have just gone to far there, but I made myself laugh.

It's pretty competitive, actually too competitive, but it should all be done in fun. Some of my most favorite memories are from being a part of this experience. There are master follies people and there are the non-master follies people. I loved it!!! In my next life I'll be a Master Follies Director.

And just to add on to the Kappa party news...any and all Kappa are invited. Some have told me that they didn't know if they were invited, because they weren't in Kappa very long, or they didn't graduate. EVERYONE IS INVITED!!! And I don't have any sort of way to communicate with everyone, so if you know someone who will be in town, invite them over!!! I've heard from a lot of girls, and I think we're going to have quite a crowd. I'm sooo excited!

Okay, so enough about that...today has kind of been a blah day. It's a lot better than it was. Just life and circumstances beyond my control...and I'm trying hard to give that control that I want to have to God!
That and I'm trying to get over a cold that keeps coming and going. I've felt like a medicine cabinet lately with all my drugs. I had a headache for about 4 days, off and on. I took a muscle relaxer last night to hopefully relieve some tension off my neck. It did, but I felt hungover all morning. Which, call me crazy, isn't fun!!!
Things are good, still just putting one foot in front of the other, and on most days it works. I did have something funny happen to me, and I don't mind sharing, because I don't see it as a big deal. Sunday afternoon I got invited to a Superbowl party by my friend Elaina, who was in charge of our divorce care group at church. Y'all I didn't even know it was the superbowl until Friday when I went to Wal-mart and saw some decorated cakes. Even then I couldn't have told you who was playing. So obviously my plans for parties were non exsistent.
This party was to be at her boyfriend's neighbor's house. So I show up, not knowing who's going to be there...knowing pretty much nothing besides the fact that I had just found out the Giants and Patriots were playing. Well, I didn't know a person there besides Elaina and her boyfriend. She introduces me to everyone and after some analyzation on my part everyone there has a spouse or mate, besides the guy who owns the house. I looked at her and she smiles at me...did I just unsusectingly get set up? Yes, I did. I just love Elaina, she's been a real mentor for me...so I would trust someone that she said was good. I have no idea if he knew I was coming, or if he knew anything about me. Still don't know...but I think it was pretty obvious to him that Elaina invited me for him. She asked me later if I would be open to doing this again, and I told her sure. I told her I'm in a good place where this is becoming fun to me, so I don't know...we shall see! He's never been married, and no one had to call 911 when I told him how many kids I had or their ages. In fact, he didn't even flinch...so I take that as a good sign.
I'm just having fun, and that's okay. I'm allowed to, and dog gone it, I deserve it!!!
Well, that's all for now. I hope you all have a great rest of the week. Oh, I almost forgot!!! I was reading my friend, Susan's blog and she was talking about her one year anniversary for her blog. I went and looked to see how old my blog is. Y'all, Happy Bloggy Birthday to me!!!! I'll be two years old tomorrow, February 6th!!! Wow, it's flown by and I've done a whole lot of stretching and growing in that two years!!! I can't wait to see what the next two years hold! Thanks for hanging with me and coming back to read more. Y'all are the best!!!

That "5,000 people can't be wrong" made me laugh. I had forgotten all about that saga! Oh, well . .. GO KAPPA!:).

Those were the days, hours of practicing in the field house, or Katie Rogers parlor, or where ever we could. Lot's of great memories.

"TV, cell phone, and computer..." Man, isn't it crazy how we can remember all the words to those shows? Cat in the Hat was my first show, too, Cheri. I know what you mean about Master Follies people and non-Master Follies people. I, too, was definitely one of them! And I think you would have made a great director, Larissa!! Also, I laughed too about the 5,000 people thing :)

Fun story about the Super Bowl party. I stayed home with Will from church on Sunday because he was sort of puny. When Scott got home I asked him if we were doing anything with the kids that night for the Super Bowl. He said that he didn't even know it was the Super Bowl until he heard the kids talking in class about it that morning. Then he was surprised to know that I knew who was playing! Ha!
