Day #150

Apparently I have been living under a rock and missed the announcement of Hallmark's Mobile Greetings. While I get the concept - send a cute, fun message to family and friends, I feel that nothing beats getting personalized mail. Like today, when I came home at lunch, I had two cards waiting for me in the mail (thanks Laura and Leslie) and it jazzed up my whole afternoon.
Not sure a happy phone message would have done the same thing.

Day #149

I heart Dave Ramsey. Thanks to my dad, I've been listening to him for years and following his plan on how to tackle debt and saving for the future. I look forward to the day when my husband and I are debt free (including the house) and can call Dave up to celebrate. If you haven't heard of him, try listening to his radio show. Here's the link:

I had a post ready for today. was all planned out,
typed and ready to go.
And then my Internet ate it.

Yeah for slow-not-so-great-internet connection. So instead,
here is a "Happy Friday" cartoon. Have a great weekend.

It’s amazing that a year ago, Mr. M and I were taking our engagement photos at the Lake Lure this month. The beautiful, crisp fall day reminded me of that fun afternoon of us just hanging out and enjoying each other’s time. It’s funny how fast a year can fly!

Day #144

I ordered my Christmas Cards!

I know… I know…I’m a nut but I adore this holiday and all of its quirky traditions. One tradition is that you send Christmas cards during the holiday season. For me, that means putting them in the mail day after Thanksgiving. If I do not send them on that day then they seriously won’t go out. I ordered them on Monday and they should be in my hands next week! So excited!

Now all I have to wait for is the Holiday stamps to go on sale…

I heard "Rocky Racoon" by the Beatles on my way into work today and I've been humming it ever since. Enjoy!

I have a midterm today that's all on-line. I haven't taken an exam of any kind in at least a year so the idea of taking one completely on the Internet is a little nerve wracking. Keep your fingers crossed for me at 5:30 tonight!

Day #139

After yesterday's balloon fiasco on TV, thought you'd like to know that "Up" arrives on DVD on Nov. 10. I mean, if it can happen in the movies then it must be real.

As my friend Jessica said this morning,"How about those strange parents? Whew! Move over, Jon and Kate." My thoughts exactly.

PS. Ironically this was the first movie Mr. M and I saw as a married couple.

Day #132

It's hard to believe that in the last month that I've "lost" two of my dear friends to Texas. They both have decided to pursue a new chapter in their lives and leave the Carolinas. Ironically, telling me within 48 hours of each other. So, over the last few days there were the "Good-bye" soirees and the last dinners so to speak but I know that it won't truly be the same.

While I know they'll be successful - one at her new job and the other in her new home with her husband, I will miss them but at the same time, I'm excited for them. Moving always allows you to get a fresh start and a new perspective on life. So to those in Texas, FYI - you're getting a great set of girls coming your way.

Day #125

Busy, busy weekend for the M household – it’s homecoming time at Wofford. Normally this means the Street Party on Friday, Farmers Market, Yoga, Football game on Saturday, Terrier Ball on Saturday night and sports on Sunday. The days are compact and full of fun which is exactly how I like it.

This year I’m skipping the Street Party to heading to a sorority retreat at lake near Clemson. Fingers crossed that it does not turn too cold tonight for the girls. Should be a blast!

Day #124

Today I went home from work sick which is a rarity on my end. Normally I try to “power through it” and just wait for the day to be over but that was not the case this morning. With a busy weekend planned, I hope this is one of those 24 hour bugs.
