Bowling tonight!

We have started a new bowling league and it is made up entirely of our friends! Woot! My team is called "The Rick Astley All-Stars". We are totally going to make an awesome shirt...we might not hae them until near the end of the league, but that is okay.

My class is going well. Yay.

My hair is growing...I might be within a month or two (or less) of not having to wear a wig...we'll see though. It just depends on when I feel comfortable enough I guess. I never wear it when I am at home or if we have friends over, but it's different in public...

Anyways, I think I am going to get a grilled cheese sandwich at the alley! Yum!

Wow, it has been crazy busy lately and I have been having so much fun! I think I am starting to wake up from my hazy year and I am really trying not to stress and worry about stupid little things as much. Right now I am pretty caught up in the Vikings, friends, trying to exercise more, wedding plans, and I am also taking a class right now to begin my MBA.

Vikings - we had friends over last weekend for the game and it was so exciting! I am hoping tonight's game goes just as well. I am super nervous for the team. Ahhh! It would be so cool if they make it to the Superbowl!!!

Friends - I have awesome friends. I love hanging out with them! Lately we have had some game parties and bowling has started up again. I saw some good movies (Up in the Air, It's Complicated, and Avatar), saw Dreamgirls (the musical), and had some good meals (like 3 Squares the other night!).

Exercise - as with most brides-to-be, I would like to look a bit better then I do now by the time the wedding rolls around in July. I have actually decided to cancel my gym membership though! haha. It's just too cold out to trek over to the gym and it's not convenient. I used to live just down the road from the gym, but now it is at least a 15 minute drive each way to go. We have an elliptical machine in the basement which is my favorite machine and it just seemed silly to pay to use the machine at the gym when I basically have the same stuff at home. I am excited to not have that money taken out each month and I have been having great workouts at home! There are always deals so if I feel like joining again in the future I am sure I can find a similar package that I have right now.

Wedding - things are getting done! I got my dress and the bridesmaid dresses ordered last week! That is a huge weight off of my shoulders and I am very excited that I found something I like and I also think the bridesmaid dresses will be super cute! Next up will be invitation designs, food tastings, and tons of other things...I feel like I am on top of it though and am not stressing about it. I think the things that are coming up will be really fun to work on!

MBA - I work for a school and have always thought about taking classes and working towards a new degree. I tried a class a couple of years ago and that particular specialization was not for me. I decided last spring to try again but this time work towards an MBA. I can't say that business is a passion of mine, but it is very practical and so far I am really enjoying it. I think that I do have a business mind and hopefully it will all pay off when I graduate sometime in 2012! Woot.

Well, I've got some homework to work on! I need to finish it before the game starts! Go Vikings!!

p.s. I am over the "all in lowercaps" typing. : )
