Hey everyone! I just wanted to let you know I am back from being out of town. I noticed I hadn't posted since last Friday and wanted to say hey! I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend...I know I did! Last Friday my boyfriend came into town. We have been together since June of 2008 but he currently lives in Dallas, Texas. His job is out there and his family lives in Texas. Before we became serious, he moved out there so we are doing the long distance thing. I live in Birmingham, AL so it is about a 12 hour drive unfortunately :( We wouldn't know that because we always fly to see each other. We manage to take turns flying from Birmingham to Dallas and Dallas to Birmingham about every 4-6 weeks so its not too bad. Anyways, it was his turn to come to Birmingham so he arrived early this past Friday morning. I went to the airport to pick him up and then we ran some last minute errands before heading to the campgrounds with my family and some of our friends about 2 hours away. It was beautiful all weekend and didn't rain once! We have a camper so we definitely don't "rough it" haha. I am not the "tent camp" kind of girl but a camper works just fine :)
We spent the day on Saturday in Auburn, Alabama and went to the first football game of the season. Football has always been a big deal in my life since I was a little girl. My dad is a hardcore Auburn fan and we have had season tickets to the football games since before I was born. I also graduated from Auburn last December so Auburn is near and dear to my heart :) So we spent the day in Auburn, ate lunch, walked around the campus that was crawling with people everywhere and get some new hats and shirts and headed to the game. It was a night game and we had scholarship tickets so that meant free food the entire game. It is dangerous having free food during the games but I was actually good despite the fact that I was starving. My boyfriend was enjoying the free food and got like 2 cokes, 2 hamburgers, a hotdog and some peanuts. He probably won't even gain one pound! Disguisting I know! But I had a diet coke, a bit of his hamburger and one cookie! So I was pretty proud of myself. Anyways, we played Louisiana Tech and won the game 37-13. We played great and makes me think we have hope of having a winning season this year (which is better than last year).
So we got back to the campgrounds at like midnight Saturday night. We camped until Monday afternoon and headed back to Birmingham. Monday night we went to dinner with my cousins and hung out with them at their house. I hadn't seen them in a while so it was great to catch up. The next morning I took my boyfriend to the airport and he headed back to Dallas. We used to be all mushy and sappy and cry everytime we left each other, but we are so used to it now. It isn't that bad...we just know we will see each other again in about 4 weeks.
All this to say, that is why I haven't posted since last Friday. Thank you everyone for your comments! I love reading them :) I will post some pictures from this past weekend as soon as I get them on my computer!
As for a surgery update, I have to finish my requirements before I submit everything to my insurance. I am cramming three appointments on Friday, September 18th. I have a sleep study that morning, a one-on-one nutrition meeting that afternoon and I have to get my blood drawn and lab work done later in the afternoon. After that, I have a psychological evaluation on September 23rd I believe and also on that day I have a 4 hour nutrition class I have to do. FOUR HOURS....goodness gracious. Hope its not too boring. Did any of you have to do all of these things I am having to do? Which ones are interesting? Which ones seem like a waste of time?
Thanks yall! Talk to you soon :)
