Dinner with Jason

This week I hosted a dinner at my home for my former DSP and friend, Jason.

It was my job to purchase dinner for the evening. At work that day, Susan from Dr. Hurm's told me about this awesome dessert that I should also purchase called raspberry white chocolate cake. I decided to buy it and it was amazing. Everyone loved it and there were no left overs. I let Susan know that I bought it and that it was really good.

I am almost done with filing for 2009-2011 for Dr. Hurm's office and am anxious to start the 2012 filing. The letters keep coming in!

Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy New Year!


Christmas lunch and Zipline excursion!

In Decemeber I was invited to attend a staff holiday lunch at the Bristol with Dr. Hurm's office. The party took place upstairs in a private room and was with another dental office. Everyone ordered and shared appetizers including the famous green chili wontons. I really liked those!

It was very nice to have a lunch out with my coworkers to celebrate the holidays. After lunch the two offices had made plans to go Zipline at the Louisville Mega Caverns. While I decided not to zipline, I did take pictures and watched everyone's first attempt. Dr. Hurm joked that he would wear his outfit to the office the next day! Here are some pictures from that fun day out!

Christmas is coming soon!

It's been a while since I have had the chance to update my blog. I have been busy after Halloween and then came Thanksgiving. My Thanksgiving was filled with family and friends. My favorite dish I had was the cherry pie!

This past weekend my family and I went to Nashville to see the Christmas lights outside. We stayed in a hotel and saw two shows: Rockette's and Ice. We ate out and tried some Greek food.

Today I saw Sam for the first time in 2 weeks! At the office, I did a lot of filing work. After work we went to Target and Christmas shopped. I still need to purchase some gifts for my family but I did get some items today.

almost Halloween!

I am excited that it's almost Halloween! I get to help pass out popcorn from our driveway. We have been handing out popcorn to kids in the neighborhood for many years on Halloween! I also help my dad make the popcorn. It's neat to be able to pass out something other than candy.

I predict that it's going to be a chilly Halloween.

In other news, my family and I recently to a trip to the Smokey Mountains. We were gone for 4 days and it was wonderful to be in a quiet and relaxing place and to not have to think about work! I played tennis in the mountains with my dad. I hope to play more tennis soon.

Today I am helping Andy move. He leaves tomorrow for his new job. Last week Sam helped me learn to make brownies. They were delicious! I have enjoyed learning how to cook and bake.

For the past two weeks I have been busy working. My work schedule has changed and I am now off on Tuesdays and working at Lifeway on Fridays.
I was sad to learn that my friend, Andy will be moving away soon. He has accepted a new position as a church pastor in West Lafayette, IN. I wish him and his family all the best and will miss spending time with him very much.
Today I am planning to make a pizza dinner for my family. It will be the first time I have ever cooked for them. I am excited to learn more about cooking and ways that I can help out around the house. I will be sure to post pictures of the final product...if I can get to it before everyone eats it up! I doubt that there will be any leftovers. My family and I love pizza!

Wow! It's been such a long time since my last post. Lots has happened to me since then that I would like to share with you. I have made two new friends, Sam and Sarah. They are great and have almost the same cars. I love riding in both of them! One is a Yaris and one is a Fit. Here is a picture of me standing next to Sam's tomato red Honda Fit.

Last week I used my pretzel making kit that I got for my birthday. Sam helped me roll out the dough and we made lots of fun designs. They were delicious!

Today Sam and I enjoyed the beautiful weather and walked around the park. I took a few photos and got some good exercise. Here is the best photo from the park today

I am VERY excited to go back to work at the bus compound. I get to start back there in just a few days. I will be busy once that starts because I will have 3 jobs during the week. I am still at Dr. Hurm's and Lifeway bookstore.

Hope this post finds you doing well. I have missed updating my bog and look forward to updating it again on a regular basis.
