You will never guess what I have been doing this past week, let alone where I am sitting right now.

I know, the excitement is killing you, lol.

But in all seriousness, I spent the last week cleaning and preping and packing, and now I am sitting in LAX with my HUSBAND getting ready to go on a wonderful R and R vacation. That's right people, my husband finally got to take his R and R!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will fill you in on all the details {from the pick up, to the trip, to the "see you later"} when we get back from our relaxing and tropical vacation spot.

For now, just image the biggest smile on a person you can =0D

This last weekend I was lucky enough to get tickets to see my alma mater play in the Cotton Bowl. That's right, a major college football bowl game took place in my backyard at Cowboy's Stadium!

Eight of my close girl friends came into town to join me for a MAJOR football girls weekend.

We started off by tailgating when the parking lots opened at noon. Throughout the hours of pre-game madness, we saw so many people we knew, got to hang out with our schools mascot, and enjoyed the pre-game pep-rally.

Once inside we were blown away by are seats and the stadium itself. It was actually the first time I have even been inside an NFL stadium and since it is only two years old it still has that "new stadium" smell/look. As for our seats, we were in the lowest level possible 12 rows up. YAY!

It was an amazing experience even though my team didn't win. We all cheered our faces off, leaving me with no voice Saturday morning, and many of my friends voices leaving as well. The rest of the weekend was full of taking them around Dallas. Man, it was such a fun, much needed, weekend.

I almost forgot, my husband called me durning the game. Him, and a few of his buddies were able to stream the game and watch it with me. While it stinks he wasn't with me at the game, it was cool that he was watching with me somewhere.

Hello 2012

2011 was a roller coster. 

My husband graduated flight school, I got my first {dream} job, we got to actually live together for a month, he started his first deployment, I had finally got a clean bill of health, and those are just a few of the high lights. 

In honor of all of that, I am looking forward to what 2012 has to offer and am going to do a different twist on resolution thing. I actually found this list on another blog and love the concept. Hopefully I can keep these up.
  1. Smile
  2. Have Gratitude
  3. Kick Comparison to the Curb
  4. Set Some New Goals
  5. Give Back
  6. Do What You Like
  7. Surrond Myself with People You Love
  8. Feel Your Best
  9. Create a Happy Environment
  10. Focus on Your Strengths
Now for all of you, I hope your New Year is full of fun, peace, happiness and full of fun new adventures.
