What happens in Mexico.....

Stays in Mexico...or not, since I'm about to tell you all about it.

I had a great time, as you can tell by all the pictures that are floating around (and yes feel free to coment on any of them if you like)

It was a well deserved fun filled week. Ok, so I had to work awww poor me. But I think a total of 8 hours of work over 5 days, really wasn't to bad.

A little 2 hour welcome meeting (aka long drawn out speech) followed by dinner and drinks (ok so that makes up for some of the meeting) the the next day I had to get up at 6am to be at yet anothe meeting this time for 4 hours (again poor me) this time followed by a vendor visit yet another 2 hours of beach time lost.

But after that we were pretty much free, Other than our little activity of Snorkeling and Sailing....and oh yeah....drinking (I see a pattern forming here)

And yet again, after snorkeling, back to the beach, then dinner, then drinks...see I told you a pattern.

Finally it's now time to go home on Friday morning, this is where all hell breaks loose.

I get up nice and bright and early. to be checked out of the hotel and on the bus back to the airport by 9am. Thats ok, I don't mind it, the only thing I wasn't looking forward to was my 4 hour layover in atlanta, but hey I figured that would give me some time to get my bags and clear customs, and immigration.

Actually I did all that stuff in record time, all done in less then 30 minutes...woohoo now only 3 1/2 hours to kill....oh wait no, lets try 5 1/2 hours to kill, my flight was delayed for an hour to take off then another hour waiting on the tarmac because bad weather in Dallas screwed up all the flights into New York and as we all know it's a huge chain reacation.

The only plus was, I paid $75.00 to upgrade to 1st class...which by the way was well worth every penny that I paid for it, especially since we sat on the plane for an hour....and yet the night is still not over.

I finally land in Newark, and after all that, get into my car drive out of the airport to realize that there was a huge backup at the GW Bridge.


So the ride that took me a little over an hour to get to Newark to me 3 1/2 to get home. (Thanks to Dawn I had someone to talk to the entire ride)

All in all it was a great trip. And if anyone wants to see all the pictures just let me know and I'll send them off to you.

And remember....What happens in Mexico....Stays in Mexico!!!

So I guess, I may just need that afghan after all.

It's 50 degrees out today, so I'm at work and chilly, that nice warm little blanket would do the trick today.

See sometimes things work out for me.....I said sometimes.

The Stash Blanket

Ok, as we all know, I have more yarn then I know what to do with. So I figured out something to do with some of it.

About 3 weeks ago, I deceided I was going to use some of my stash and make an afghan.....hey 3 weeks ago, we had that little cold front and it was in the 40's at night so it worked.

But all in all I like the way it came out and if it dosen't get used until fall thats ok too.

Hope everybody likes it. I know I do!!!

And in case you are wondering about the size, it's about the width of a twin, and about 5 feet long, so not quite the size of a twin blanket, but it'll work

My Personalty

You Are An ENFP

The Inspirer

You love being around people, and you are deeply committed to your friends.
You are also unconventional, irreverent, and unimpressed by authority and rules.
Incredibly perceptive, you can usually sense if someone has hidden motives.
You use lots of colorful language and expressions. You're quite the storyteller!

In love, you are quite the charmer. And you are definitely willing to risk your heart.
You often don't follow through with your flirting or professed feelings. And you do break a lot of hearts.

At work, you are driven but not a workaholic. You just always seem to enjoy what you do.
You would make an excellent entrepreneur, politician, or journalist.

How you see yourself: compassionate, unselfish, and understanding

When other people don't get you, they see you as: gushy, emotional, and unfocused

Boot Scoot Boogie!!

Yes, I did the boot scoot boogie, last night well...sorta. I was sitting down on the lawn when I did it, but you get the picture.

Last night was a bit of a surprise....but let me tell you how it began. I was at work yesterday afternoon, and got an email from one of the radio stations that said if you can find a little guitar on their website you would be entered in to win 1 of 10 sets of tickets that they were giving away tickets to go see Alan Jackson and Brooks&Dunn, so I did a litle web surfing and found the guitar and enterd the contest.

About 2 hours later I got a message saying that I won the tickets for the show, they would be at will call just to go get them. I was a little shocked, because I don't usually win things like that but hey it worked, it was a beautiful night out and we sat on the lawn. (and no I dont think i've seen the lawn that full in a long time, and it's been awhile sit i've sat there....kinda got spoiled inside)

All in all it was a great night, a free concert under the stars...ok clouds, but it never rained. And a great couple of acts.

Let's just hope this means my luck is changing. WOOHOO!!!
