Back from Cola...

Here is the update from my trip to Columbia and Augusta. Most recent to least! First up, pictures from my belated birthday celebration in Augusta. 20 of us went to Vallarta's for Mexican and margaritas! Good times!

My best friends from high school, Natalie and Martha. Love you guys!

An unsuccessful attempt by our waiter to get most of our group around the table.

Bradley, the planner for the evening. He did a great job!

Another attempt at getting a shot of the table. Oh well...
The rest of the weekend in Augusta was crazy. Brad had a root break a pipe in his front yard, the cable went out and I had a horrible migraine. We also ran some errands. Friday night was definitely the highlight!

The Charleston crew at our trade show in Columbia. It was circus-themed so we had these big stuffed animals in our booth and some former Barnum and Bailey employees!

Here they are, juggling around Chris and I. We could feel the wind whistling in front of our face. Scary! They also wore stilts for half of the time but I missed those pictures, of course.

As promised, here is a picture of the snow flurries Charleston had last week. You can barely see it but we were very excited!

On the road again...

Today I traveled to Columbia for a trade show and sales calls. Fun stuff! I just had dinner with an old coworker and am settling in to watch Lost. SO excited!!

I am glad that the weather is warming up. We had snow yesterday! I took pictures but left my camera cable at home so you will have wait to see those!!

30's good so far!

I think only one person reads this (Jen!) but I am going to do much better this year about keeping my photos and life updated for you! With the help of the laptop I got for Christmas. ; )

I am not a great writer (Heather, I need some lessons!) so hopefully this won't be too boring. I turned 30 on Wednesday. So far, it hasn't been much different, as expected. But, hopefully 2009 and my 30th year will be very enjoyable and prosperous. As I hope yours is!

Brad and I are going to enjoy a nice dinner on Saturday at a restaurant in downtown Charleston called Cypress. I am salivating just thinking about it! Click the Cypress link for photos and menus...

Tonight is the last episode for Gil Grissom on the original CSI: and I am very sad but excited to see what Laurence Fishburne (Augusta native!) can bring to the show. Next week Lost premieres for the season and I am ecstatic. Other things I am looking forward to this year:

- Using the iPod Touch Brad gave me for Christmas. here I come.
- Brad and I being in the same town. Not sure which one or when but it WILL happen in 2009!
- Sharing in the births of several friend's children - still glad it is them and not me!
- Tackling a new year of business at Kiawah. I love a challenge. And it will be a challenge.
- UGA football. I know it is a long way off but I feel like this season left a lot to be desired. We certainly weren't horrible but injuries, a tough schedule and high expectations made for a cruel combination. It doesn't help our star QB and RB are going to the 'bigs' but I think we have a lot of talented youngsters to step up and lead with heart and emotion. So, until September, I will have to make do with recruiting news, spring practice and ...
- Braves baseball. They have a ways to go before they are the dominant team of the 90's again but it should be interesting to see if/how we get there.
- Walking with The Beast. She probably hates me because I never do this but I promise to more this year, Banjo!

So, I think that is it for now. But stay tuned...


I think the flowers lately have been really pretty! What do you think?

Happy New Year!

At Brad's house for Christmas dinner with his Dad, Granny, sister Megan, her boyfriend, Adi, and his parents.

With Natalie and Martha for our Christmas lunch in Augusta. Miss and love you girls!

Homemade dog biscuits I made for my coworker's dogs. They loved them! How funny is the fire hydrant??
