Sunday, Ryan and I attempted to go to church (the services were moved up an hour and we didn't know so we missed it) and then went and got all the essentials for Tackle. When we got home he put candles on the birthday cake he got me for Jose's. The service was so bad that we didn't want to sit there anymore to even have cake. We sat and had cake on my front porch.

I have been wanting a dog for months and I told myself that I wouldn't get one until I moved. I was going to wait until next weekend to go pick him/her out but Ryan reminded me that I won't get to take them home the day I picked it out. So, if I go to the shelter on Saturday I will get to pick my doggie up mid-next week. Happy Birthday to me!
I think it is important to adopt a dog rather than buy one. There are so many dogs at the Fayetteville Animal Shelter that need good homes. I have been looking on the website a lot recently and have found that I want to take them ALL home. I have picked out some of my favorites though. Here they are.
Duke - Yellow Lab
Coons - Hound Mix
Chase - Huskey/German Sheppard
Which one do you think I should adopt? I know once I go to the Shelter and get to play around with them, I will find one that is perfect for me. Wish me luck.

- PR Intern with MCG
- Victoria's Secret
And the list goes on and on and yes I know I was an over achiever..... Well after I graduated my calendar suddenly became empty. I had no idea what to do with my time. It was a foreign thing to me to NOT be busy. Eventually I got over the inital shock and enjoyed my time of freedom. It was nice not have activities or meetings to go to every night of the week.
Fast forward to present time and I am bored again so I have dived right back into a list of activies. I didn't really think i was involved in a lot until I looked at my calendar and noticed I have 5 events/meetings coming up in the next week.
Tonight I have back-to-back meetings. First is the United Way Young Women's Alliance gathering and then its straight to a "New Member" meeting for Junior League. Both are philanthropic organizations based on volunteerism. This weekend there is a NWA Young Professionals gathering and then I have community group on Sunday. The Hogs also have their spring scrimmage on Saturday. You know I am a Razorback Fan! Next Wednesday the NWA Tri Delta Alunni chapter will meet with the current seniors. We will be there to mingle with the students and provide "real world" advice.
So I have come full circle back to my days of getting involved and joining everything. All of these organizations help serve the community and its an opporutnity for me to give back. I guess no matter how much I try, I can't make myself NOT do anything.

Last Thursday, April 2, I thought about my counsin Leah alot. That was her birthday and she would have turned 31. As Amy shares, Leah would have celebrated her birthday on Thursday, over the weekend and for the rest of the month of April. In our family, we have three birthdays back to back. Our Uncle Don is March 31, Spencer's is April 1 and Leah's was April 2. We grew up celebrating their birthdays together but somehow, Leah always stole the birthday show.
Leah and I were always close and growing up, I wanted to be like her SOOO bad! Leah had everybody wrapped around her finger, espescially Mark, and we made fun of him for that. We always had so much fun together, Leah gave me boy advice, talked to me about college stuff and one night her, Mark, Amy and Jerry snuck me into a bar on Dickson street for the first time. That is an experience I will never forget. Another funny thing about Leah is that she always had the strangest way of eatting her pizza. Once she got her piece of canadian bacon pizza she would scrap all the toppings off, eat those first and then eat the crust.
Leah was also very protective. She did her student teaching at FHS while I was there so I got to see her everyday. She would always be quick to tell me which boys I could and could NOT hang out with. Leah also loved football as much as I did so we bonded even more at Razorback games.
I love Leah very much and miss her everyday. Leah, I Hope you had a great birthday in Heaven and you "partied like a rockstar!"
