An Update

So in addition to my weekend o' fun amidst all the studying that has been going on, here's a little peek into the small everyday things that are going on in life right now.

1. I got halloween cookies in the mail yesterday from my wonderful parents! They are Cheryl & Co cookies and they are my fave!

2. I have a big fantasy football game this weekend. I am currently in second place in our league and I am playing the undefeated first place team. Last year the Mighty Penguins won the championship and I am hoping to repeat.

3. Speaking of repeats, this is totally random, but at young life camp every year there is a volleyball tournament. Just about every year Derek's cabin wins the volleyball tournament. This year at camp, I overheard one of the seniors telling one of the first timers that they have to win the volleyball tournament or Derek will be mad. I thought that was funny because while Derek does like to win at everything he wouldn't be mad if they didn't, but its also funny because he takes every competition at camp very seriously and they usually win just about everything.

4. When I went to the World Equestrian Games last week they had a big tent that showcased all things Kentucky, and in that tent was this:

That's right. It's the dress Rosemary Clooney wore in the movie White Christmas for the "Sisters" number. You may have no idea what I'm talking about. And that's ok. All you need to know is that my sister and I used to perform this number at all family functions when we were little. My grandparents claim that video evidence exists, however, I have yet to see it. I took this picture just for her.

5. Speaking of my sister, I'm ready for her to move back to this side of the Mississippi. Between the 2 hour time difference and our jobs, it is difficult to find time to talk and actually seeing each other would involve a several hundred dollar plane ticket. I don't like how rarely we see/talk to each other. On the bright side, whenever I do go see her it involves skiing for free or very cheap. But I would give that up to see her on a more regular basis.

6. Moose. He's such a good dog. And I have been neglecting him lately. The weekend after the PE is over he is getting a trip to the dog park. He says it with his eyes, "Take me to the park! Play with me!"

7. Derek. He's such a good husband. And I have been neglecting him too. He has been wonderful and has been paying attention to Moose. And the laundry. And the dishes. And everything else that I have been neglecting.

And just as I was writing this he called and asked if he could bring me something for lunch. What a sweetheart.

8. Topanga and Feeny. They don't get much air time on the blog. They pretty much live in the upstairs of our house now that Moose is around. But they are still as sweet as ever. Although one of them threw up in my flip flop the other night.

Ok. I think that pretty much covers what is going on in the Warnick household. I will be studying my life away, helping out at a charity golf event, going to my sister in laws baby shower and brother in laws birthday party this weekend. But thankfully this is a Friday off week for me! The weekend is soooo close! Love you all :)

1. Those cookies look amazing!! Care to share?? :]

2. I love White Christmas! My sisters-in-law (though 21, 18 and 16) still love to do their renditions of it.

3. That is one gorgeous dog! And I love his name! That's a top choice for me when I get a dog one day! :] Something about naming dogs human names just doesn't sit well with me. I hate when I meet a dog named "Chloe" and I'm sure others would feel the same if I had a dog with their name.

4. Your husband sounds like a great guy. :] Hope you get some time together soon!

Happy Thursday!
