September 11th. I love it.

I’m fully aware that I forgot to post last week, but once again, the holiday weekend messed me up.

First up this week, “Steve and Me.” I love it. A friend of mine told me that Terri Irwin’s book about her husband Steve Irwin and I just had to read it. Back in elementary school, he was one of my favorite people, so learning about his life made me feel great. I had no idea how he met his wife, why he named his daughter what he did, and also more details into the events after his life. I almost couldn’t stop reading this book, but I made myself take 2 days to read it. BONUS: I also hit my 25 book goal for the year.

I love it.

Next up, Gilmore Girls. I love it. Last week I started watching it on Netflix again. Oh, the memories. I can remember watching this with my family, especially during the fall and the holiday season so it’s my feel good show. I can’t wait for the new season to come out so this is just my prep time. Obviously, I couldn’t watch it without have a huge cup of coffee and a donut.

I love it.

Finally, being needed. I love it. Despite the fact that I no longer work at Tulane, I was still brought in for the first home football game yesterday. I got a lot of questions and requests from my former co-workers so that let me know that they miss me. While I don’t miss the crazy hours and all of the stress, I do miss the people that I used to see everyday, so it’s nice that I’ll get a chance to see them a few more times this season. I’m gone but not forgotten.

I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great.

I love it.

September 6th. I love it.

What started off as a terrible week actually turned out to be pretty great.

First thing up this week, getting through the first football game of the season. I love it. What was causing me a lot of heartburn earlier this week (mostly just stress and the disorganization of other people) ended up working out in the end. We got our “stuff” together and the game went off without a hitch. I was on my feet for 17 hours straight and didn’t get home until 2am, but we did it. I could have slept for days after that. You would have thought that I was the one playing football. But big events mean lots of work. Luckily, I have a week off before our next game.

I love it.

Next up, Pecan Pie M&Ms. I love it. Yes, I love pecan pie, so obviously I was going to need to try these M&Ms. I absolutely thought they were the best thing ever but I got some mixed reviews from the rest of my family. They said it tasted like coffee, but maybe I was okay with that because I also love coffee! Yum!

I love it.

Finally, spending the weekend with my family. I love it. I took advantage of this long weekend to come see my dad in Mount Airy, his new place of residence. He’s opening a restaurant down here and I was the only one in the family to never visit the home of Andy Griffith. Not only am I visiting, but my mom and sister came too! I usually only get to see them twice a year but I’ve already seen them three times! My dad showed me around the town that Mayberry was based off of, introduced me to the folks here that have already adopted him as one of their own, and taken me to Pilot Mountain to enjoy the beautiful view. The weather has been amazing and I could totally see myself living around here. I’m starting to miss Brian and Yogi so my trip back to NOLA on Tuesday will be welcome. I’ll post pictures of my trip when I get home!

I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great.

I love it.
