I'm Still Here!

I am getting so so slack about coming on here and posting and if anyone has missed me (please say you have!?!) I am sorry for that. This girl's been staying busy lately!
Hub and I had a great weekend.
Friday night we hung out at the house. We had a pizza, wine, and movie night. We got to try that new pizza place I've been talking about. You know. The real New York style pizza place I mentioned. Giovanni's. It's delish. And Cheap. And 4 minutes away from my house. Not a good thing seeing as how I'm trying to avoid that crap. *I say as I'm getting ready to watch The Biggest Loser* Teeheee. We watched Saw 4. I liked. Kept me guessing the whole time. I get pretty excited over a scary/gory movie. Love turning the lights off, lighting some of my mama's amazing candles, having a couple glasses of wine and cuddling on the couch. Perfect night.
Saturday, we woke up pretty early. Trey headed straight back to the couch to get ready for football. I went and did a little bit o' shopping at TJ Maxx. I LOVE our TJ's over here. Never fail to find some good deals. Got a pair of Seven jeans for $25. That's over 1/2 off. Love it. Came home, watched a very very heart clenching Alabama/LSU game. Oh myyy.. I couldn't even watch the first half in the same room as Trey. But they did pull it out in overtime *thank God* and it was a good night for us. We then went out for our friend Brandon's birthday. Had a great time. SOMEONE had a little too much of a good time and for once it was not me. I'm not sure if I even got tipsy. But I did have a great time out with our friends. Never a dull moment that's for sure.
Sunday.. went to my parents house to help her make 10 lbs of meatballs and watch The Patriots. It was good spending more time over there but sadly, it was not for a good occasion. My dad's boss, Marty Hastings, who I posted about a little further back, passed away Saturday morning. He's been battling cancer and lost the battle this weekend. My parents went to see their family Friday night, so it was good that they got to see him one last time. My mum said they were in good spirits. I think they have accepted this was just his time and I have to imagine that they didn't want to see him suffering anymore. I hope it is comforting them to know that he is with God now and not feeling any pain and living a perfect life with Him. The wake is Wednesday and the funeral Thursday. I know it will be emotional time for everyone. My dad's been working for him for years and years and years and I know he thought a lot him. From what I've seen Mr. Hastings was a very very good man and a lot of people will want to be there to celebrate the 50 years of his life he had here. I just pray for comfort for the family that he left behind.

Now we're back to the work week!
It's been good so far. Hub and I have been commited to spending less time in front of the TV. It's been consuming us way too much lately. It's like we've barely been speaking to each other when we get home from work. Now we've been coming home, working out, he's helping me make dinner, and we're eating it at the dinner table together.. NOT IN FRONT OF THE TV. It's been great and I feel like we're getting closer again. Love <3 Not that it's been too too big of a problem, but something did need to change. I've been loving it :)

I also received two awards over the weekend! Thanks Beth and Heather! Those deserve their own seperate post so I'll get on that tomorrow.
Have a great rest of the week!!!

Oh my gosh, the game was STRESSFUL!!!
And yes, we have missed you. Although, I can't say anything about you slacking. I haven't posted much lately either.

I was at TJ Maxx on Saturday too! I wanted to shoot someone. I haven't lived in Columbia for about a year and 1/2 and I forgot how bad Harbison is on Saturdays. How crazy would it have been if we walked past each other and didn't even know it?!

I still can't get into your blog and I'm not sure why :(
I keep wanting to comment back to you and it won't let me in. I'm usually not this compter challenged, but maybe you could send me another invite?
