Tearjerker (in a good way)

You have to check out this story and video on the Today Show website. They showed the video this morning, and I kept tearing up all day just thinking about it. The little boy's reaction is just too sweet. It makes me sad for the families who don't have their dad or mom return, though.

I have a dentist appointment in June. Since I am a new patient, the office sent some forms to me to fill out before my appointment. I decided to go ahead and fill them out, so I wouldn't forget. I was going along fine until I got to the space marked address. I thought, "I don't know where I'll be living in June; I'll leave it blank for now." Ditto for home phone number. Then I got to occupation, "Well, I don't know if I'll have my job in June; I'll leave that part blank." Ditto for work phone number. And e-mail address, since I only use my ACU e-mail address. Then, I got to marital status. "Hmmm...well, I won't be married yet, but I'll be married a month from then. Why isn't there a box for engaged?" At that point, I decided filling out forms over two months in advance is stupid anyway and just gave up.

Pretty Princess

As promised, here are some pictures of my flower girl, Corrie. She loves to dress up and was reveling in all the attention she got from the saleswomen and other customers at David's Bridal. I was the flower girl in her mom's (my aunt's) wedding when I was her age, so I think it's really special that she gets to be the flower girl in mine. I just hope she doesn't steal the show on July 7! :)

Pity Party

Allow me to complain for a minute about how lame my Spring Break is: I have to wake up to a lonely house at 6:40, while it is still pitch dark (and raining), drive to work, where I am the only one who has to arrive at 8, and think of things to do for 8 hours, since no students are coming in and hardly anyone is calling. Poor me! Okay, I'm done. For the rest of the week, I will not be complaining about having to work.

On the bright side, Darby is getting back from skiing tomorrow! Yay! I'm looking forward to spending some homework-free time with him.

This weekend, I went to Austin and took my precious cousin Corrie to get her flower girl dress. I forgot my camera, but I think my aunt is going to send me some of her pictures. I'll post them soon. She is adorable!

Mike Cope, whom I don't know but admire from his blogging, has posted an interesting piece on contentment. Check it out here. I needed that today.

I also just want to let everyone know what a wonderful roommate I have. She knows I've been in a post-graduation funk, so she brought me a sweet note, a People magazine and a Reese's to work today. Celebrity gossip and that's contentment :) Seriously, though, I am blessed to have her in my life. When you've lived with someone for going on three years, you can start to take their friendship for granted. Thanks for the little (and big) things you do for me, Britt!
