Today after work, Brooke, Lyndsey and Bekah came over for dinner. Gary grilled us burgers and we ate on the back porch. (It has been so warm here!) We planned our friend Meredith's bachelorette party. I am looking forward to it!
I talked to Meghan on Skype tonight. It is fun, we are addicted to talking on the webcam even though we live 2 minutes from each other! I love it!
Now we are gonna get packed to head to Dallas to visit the Grant's for the weekend.

Tonight after work I went to the beauty school and let Laura practice on me. She waxed my brows, trimmed my hair and gave me a conditioning treatment. It was nice to be in the hair for once. She did a fantastic job!
We watched Idol at my parents house tonight with my mom. (My dad is in China for the next 2 weeks.) Kris had another stellar night! He is doing Arkansas proud. We are still ready to see Lil go home, and hopefully Anoop.

I worked on the salon some more today. I rearranged the retail to make room for some new items. I also got a pedicure this afternoon, that was a nice treat.
This evening I went over to Amy's house for a girl's night. We had tacos and watched The Hills. I can't believe Heidi is even bothering with couples counseling... Spencer is a lost cause.
We went to the gym for the first time in months. I'm gonna be sore tomorrow!

Our Church had Dr. Bob Harper come in view of a call for associate pastor. Dr. Harper is my good friend Lyndsey's dad, so we were super excited to have them there today. I am looking forward to having them at our church! After Church, we went out to lunch with my grandma (Sowle) for her birthday.
It was raining when we got home, so I cuddled up on the couch with Maggie and watched Twilight. I didn't make it through the whole movie...I upheld my usual Sunday ritual, and slept for 3 and a half hours. I don't know why I always waste the day like that. I guess the busy week just catches up with me.
This evening Gary and I grabbed a Little Cesar's pizza and went up to the salon to do some spring cleaning. We rearranged the front of the shop to make it easier for clients to check out the retail. We are wanting to really grow our retail business this summer, and I think the new layout will help with that. We did a lot of much needed cleaning. Things are really looking good now.

So, I fell asleep last night before I could post. So I will fill you in on yesterday and today. Yesterday, work was CRAZY busy. That's a good thing though. I ended my day with Meghan. We had fun catching up and playing hair. After dinner I met up with some old OBU friends at US Pizza Co. We had dinner and laughed for a few hours. It was a fun time. Idol was good. Loved that Kris sang a Swell Season song! Love them!
Tonight I skipped Bible Study (I know, bad right?) Gary and I grilled steaks and ate on the back porch. The steak was excellent! Lola got a few scraps and she was loving it. I love spring, such a beautiful time of year. Now, we are watching Idol, to hopefully see Lil Rounds kicked off. After Idol, I think we'll hit the sack early.

After helping him, I came home and got to work on odd and end jobs around the house. That took me well into the evening. Gary repainted the ceiling in our bathroom. We have had a bit of a mold problem with our bathroom being so small. We think we have it under control now. After putting in a fan, we decided to buy some mold free paint and re-coat everything. I realize more everyday how much work it is having a home!

Today work was very busy. Did my Mom's hair too. So cute! After work we got a pizza and watched Slumdog Millionaire. It was so good. Tate called and we got to catch up for about 40 min. It was great. I miss her so much!
Glad tomorrow is Friday!

Tonight I went to Bible study at church. We talked about how men value their wives respect even more than their love. Crazy huh? Women are the opposite. We value love more. So, this week I am going to focus of being respectful to Gary. It's harder than it sounds. I tend to want to be in control.
Kris is still on Idol! I am hoping he will make it all the way to the top 3. Scott went home tonight, it was sad to see him go, but it was his time. Looking forward to next week. Goodbye Lil!
Going to get to sleep early tonight for once.

American Idol was a let down tonight. I wasn't really a fan of any of the preformances. I don't know who will go tomorrow. I hope either Scott or Lil.

I helped Gary unpack his office. It's kind empty, but we are hoping to go pick up some shelves and decor items at Container Store later this week to fix it up.
After the grand opening Brooke and I went to Conway to check out their TJ Maxx. They have a huge selection of home decor! We were there forever taking it all in. We had lunch at Market Place. I've always seen it, but never eaten there. It was wonderful. I got the chicken wrap. But, the best part was the dessert! We split the "chocolate peanut butter mess." It was to die for. The chocolate and PB covered the outside of the glass and the entire plate it was sitting on. So good!
Tonight we made tacos at home. It was nice to have an evening in. It got cold outside today, only a high of 55. Now we are gonna cuddle up on the couch and watch a movie before bed. It's back to the daily grind tomorrow.

This weekend has been a weekend of showers. I dropped by Katie Dacus' bridal shower this afternoon. She is getting married next month. Katie and I grew up at church together and were baptized on the same day. Time flies!
Tonight our church had a farewell party for the Fitzpatrick family. Joe has been our music minister for 20 years. As far back as I can remember! He has been such a blessing to our church. He also led the youth choir at Park Hill and I went on 4 summer mission trips under his leadership. He will be hard to replace.
Change is in the air!
After the shower I had to head to work until 5. Not much of a Saturday, and it was so pretty outside too. I love my job, but I do wish I could be out and about with my husband on Saturday like the rest of the world.
Tonight Gary and I went to Gadwall's for dinner. One of our favorites! Then we came home and watched Alfred Hitchcock's "North by Northwest."
Gary has to work again tomorrow. I'm hoping to swing by and see the new place!

Tonight our Sunday School class had a party. We ate dinner and played "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?" I don't think I am. Most of the questions I could easily recall learning about and the answers were on the tip of my tongue, but they just weren't coming to me. But, we played boys against girls and the girls won. We are beginning to get to know the other couples in our class a little better and are really enjoying the group.
Gary has to work all weekend... still moving. They hope to be finished Sunday afternoon. He got upgraded from a cubicle to his very own office! So, I am excited about helping him set it up.
This weekend will consist of work, a baby shower, a wedding shower, church, and hopefully some rest!

We found out we are getting money back on our taxes. That's the best news we've had all year! I'm looking forward to having the salon completely paid for by the end of the summer. Such a blessing! Then I am hoping we will be able to do a little remodeling around the house. We have been wanting to update our bathrooms and kitchen since they are the only rooms we didn't get to completely redo when we moved in.
Big news! We are gonna have a baby!
APRIL FOOLS! (I wanted to do that to Gary, but decided it was too mean.)
