Did we have a weekend? The past two days have been jammed packed with parties, dinners, a yard sale and a baby shower. It was just non-stop.
In breaking news...I finally broke down and got a blackberry. I'm not a big fan of smart phones for the simple fact that people are so distracted by them. Instead of being present in the moment, their noses are buried in the tiny screen and they're missing life as it passes them by.
The other big news is that my grandmother celebrated her 82nd birthday on Sunday. Mr. M and I drove to TN Sunday afternoon for dinner and we had a ball. She's at this fun age where she just likes to laugh and crack jokes and overall is just a happy person. I'm always amazed by how sharp her mind is at her age.

A great big THANK YOU to Leslie at LMSTOEHR for this great blog award! She's participating in Relay For Life this weekend (go Les!) and overall great blogger.
Here are the rules:
1. Blog about your award and the person who sent it to you including their link.
2. List 7 things may or may not know about you.
- I collect stress balls...my desk is covered with them.
- I would like to one day win the lottery.
3. Pass the award onto 6 blogs that make you smile and give you inspiration.
Also, in other news, I saw this trailer for a new movie that's coming out. It's about 4 babies in different parts of the world and their first year of life. The concept is pretty cool and since it seems that I'm now in the stage of my life where everyone is pregnant and my conversations are now about bottles and strollers rather than going to a wine tasting or shopping, it seemed fitting to me.

We found a great bar that allowed me to have control of the TV so I could watch the big game and scream my head off....which I did...loudly. I will say that this place was a amazing food and service wise. And the fact that they didn't kick me out for acting like a spaz during the game was a plus. Wofford did lose but they played an AWESOME game.
In efforts to cheer me up, Jill took me to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Of course Jill found this great little sign and then we had to get a photo with...
This was the only turtle in the whole darn place. Aquarium FAIL.
Next we went shopping on Cannery Row in all the tourist trap shops as I was
Last photo together :(
The start of my 8+ hour trip home.
