A Little Music While You Read

Which season is it? Flu or Fall??

So, I'm sick. It's not the flu (I hope) but it's exhausting none-the-less.
I figured since I'm not working today, I can catch up on my blog.
I've put quite a few new songs on my playlist, which I know some of you will be pleased with. I use my blog as a radio and blast it while I'm getting ready in the morning or taking a shower. I'm a fan of a huge array of music. I don't really have a FAVORITE genre or artist... I have many. And since my boyfriend, Will, set my radio in my car on a classical station, I've not changed it once. It's interesting how music has the power to change my mood. I've not exactly been a ray of sunshine lately. I feel as if I've been in a slump lately. But despite all of that, this summer was incredible and I feel obliged to fill you in now.

In August:
I attended Ryan Terry & Bethany Haugan's Wedding in Minnesota. I met Ryan & Bethany at the Hallmark Institute of Photography. Bethany was actually one of my 7 roommates and one of the greatest people I met at school. I didn't take pictures at the wedding, but one of our fellow classmates, Mary Frances Chrisman was the hired photographer and she did a GORGEOUS job!
It was the closest form of a class reunion that I've had since we graduated in June of 2008 because I also had the pleasure of staying with my dearest friend, Emily!
Another roommate of mine from Hallmark, Katelynne, stayed with Emily as well.
Emily took us to the Minnesota Mall of America and while there we went to the Aquarium that Em works at.

The largest shark they have, it's name is Jesse...lol!
Also in August, one of mine and Jodi's best friends, Kara and Kara's boyfriend, Brandon, came to visit.

Okay...so, that's about it when it comes to August.
Moving on to September.
My sister and and brother in law just purchased a house in Bridge City that, at it's current state, is sort of an empty shell. The previous owners moved out after it had received quite a bit of damage from Hurricane Ike. They hope to be done with the renovations in December! :)
Also in September, I attended Kaycee & Jonathan's Wedding! Making that my 8th Wedding since May!
On September 27th, I attended my first professional football game...The Texans vs. The Jaguars!
Me and Will!
