So after three intense weeks of work, I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. This week I am playing catch up on all the work that was not "important enough" the last 3 weeks, which is always good for me. To eliminate the many piles on my desk is a good thing! This past weekend in Blacksburg was fantastic!!! Beautiful weather....fun friends....delicious food...and tons of alcohol...what more could a person want! We hit up the alumni tailgate for all the free swag--I scored a Hokie cup, Hokie watch, Hokie pens, and even a Hokie colored doughnut!!! Then we went to the game, it was an uneventful first half but the Hokies came back after halftime and kicked B.C.'s butt! We celebrated with some friends then went home to chat and get to bed--it was an exhausting day of cheering and drinking...LOL!
Tonight after work I am heading out with a bunch of girlfriends for dinner at a local Richmond restaurant (Kitchen 64) and then hitting up the movie "Footloose." How much more girlie could we get? I am pretty pumped about it, as someone who LOVES to dance, I just about love any movie that has to do with dancing!!! So a review to follow...
In other news, this weekend is the big skydiving reschedule! I am quite nervous just thinking about it, but so excited too! It will be a fantastic fall weekend, Friday night I am having a costume party for Halloween, then Skydiving bright and early Saturday morning, then we are doing "Trunk or Treat" at my church on Sunday afternoon for the kids. Then hopefully a little time to relax on Sunday (I am optimistic)!!! More updates to come soon, but for now I must be off to meet the ladies for dinner!

Work has been insane lately, like crazy insane. I seem to have been going non-stop for the past 4 weeks...so my philosophy: when it starts to feel like too much, take a break. And that is exactly what I am doing. I took tomorrow off of work, so I get an extra long weekend! Don't worry though, by the time I leave work this evening I will already have worked 45+ hours this week, so it is not like this will be a shortened work week. Anyway, tomorrow, I leave for Blacksburg, Virginia to see my lovely Hokies kick the booties of Boston College. It has been almost 11 months since I have been to the beautiful town of Blacksburg and I long for it every football season, but alas, I rarely make it back for more than a game or two a year. (But do not fear, I watch with great commitment, each game on TV). So as I head out for yet another work event, I leave you with one of the greatest mascots of all time....

Tomorrow (weather permitting), my friend CJ and I are heading up to the DC area to go skydiving. When I signed up for this, I was excited and overwhelmed with what a new adventure this would be. But now that we are just 28 hours away from the jump, my nerves are starting to surface. EEK! But I am sure, it will be an experience of a lifetime and I am getting the DVD, so one day, waaaaaaay down the road, I can prove to my grand kids that I at least used to be cool! So if everyone out there in blog world could be praying for me tonight and tomorrow, that would be just fantastic :)

Today marks my splash into the world of blogging. I have long been an avid blog reader, but I figured it was time to be on the other end of the spectrum. I am not sure what my exact goals are through this new media outlet, but I am sure over time I will figure that out. In the meantime, this will provide me with an arena to share my stories and trips with whoever has free time at work to stumble across my blog! Enjoy :)
