Return to Aggieland

I'm so excited to be heading to College Station this weekend, home of the Fightin Texas Aggies!

It's been a while since I've been back.... no wait, it's only been a year since I've been back but last time I was there was only one night and I was on campus for work the entire time.  Boo for making the trip and not hitting any of my old favorites (people or places!).  Good news'll be completely different this time!

This trip is in honor of my sweet friend Hayley's baby shower.  She's welcoming baby Laynie to her already busy family of four.  She's such a trooper, being eight months pregnant and still staying so busy with her other girls!  I haven't seen Hayley in forever and staying with her is going to be so much fun.  Did I mention she lives on a farm?  Like a real farm with chickens and pigs and miniature ponies!  Can't wait to see the Funny Farm! 

Plus, making the trip even sweeter is the fact that my friend Pam is going also.  Not only will that mean having someone to talk to on the drive down and back, but I don't get to see much of Pam even though she lives in Dallas...So, that's even more fun to get a two for the price of one, if-ya-will!

Here's some things I want to do while in B/CS  (Bryan/ College Station for all you non-Ags out there....)

1.  Lots of girl time and gossip

2.  A little bit of junk food...or a lot...depending...but either way, not so good FOR you can still be sooo good 

3.  Manis and Pedis

4.  Dig through all the baby loot after the shower and help Hayley to get ready for baby Laynie

Now, if I can just remember to take some pictures of this fabulous girls weekend so I can quit posting pictures from Google Images and show you the real deal!  Honestly, don't hold your breath.  But I'll give it a shot!

Oh, and of course I know it's only Wednesday.  But I'm excited people!!!  And, given recent blogging history I doubt I post again before the weekend so there ya have it!  I'll go ahead and wish you all (all two of you) a happy weekend!

This is my confession...

So, the people linking up to this Friday Confessional have some great ones!  And since I just figured out how to play along and link up to the button.... This is my confession...
I CONFESS... Whenever I hear Boys II Men, I will always think of my husband and I screaming singing  in the car while driving around when we first started dating.  And it wasn't in the nineties.  We just happen to like music from our middle school years.  And we used to have a "dance party" his garage...just the two of us...after we'd been out drinking.  This part did not include Boys II Men, but man, I wish there was a hidden camera to remind us of our crazier days!  Now, that's a dorky confession, right?
I CONFESS... I need to do laundry so bad that I am wearing one tan sock and one black sock -- the last two socks left were mismatched.  So I planned my outfit around my boots that would hide my sock faux pas.
I CONFESS... I shop online.  A lot.  But I always delete my cart before paying.  Something like window shopping but a heck of a lot more convenient from my desk at work!
I CONFESS... we aren't doing Valentine's gifts.  We decided to buy a treadmill instead.  Oh, and go out to dinner.  Something about the goal behind the treadmill and the fattening dinner planned are clashing.  But it fits us so perfectly!
I CONFESS... that I don't blog as often as I'd like.  I sometimes wonder how much to reveal on "the internets".  But then I'm like, is anyone even out there?!?!  Which, either way, makes me think "why bother?"  So bear with me.... I'm working it out!
Have a happy weekend!

Buttoning up to another blogger?

So, I'm not really sure how to link up with other people, but I found a hilarious idea.  After reading the people that linked up to this, I've decided I just have to join in.  But I don't know how to link to their "button".  Any suggestions out there?  Help the newbie!
