New Car!!!

So this weekend, I was lucky enough to get a new car! I am so excited about it, and I totally love the new car smell. This was not in our plans at all at the moment, but some things happened to the old car that we had to make a choice.

I have been driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee and it started to act up on us. The sensory devices stopped working and then it stopped starting! So needless to say we were a little worried about what the problem might be. My dad got us a new starter because that is what everyone thought was the problem, but once Matt got that on there it still did not start. So after playing with a few things we were able to get it to start so we immediately took it to a dealer to have them check it out. You see, it would start whenever it felt like it but never on a consistent basis, so we could not turn it off once we got it started unless we were prepared to wait a couple days for it to start again. We ran into a salesman once we got to the dealership because the service department was closed, so he took down our information and was going to have the service guy call us in the morning. Long story short, the service guy called us and told us the problem and how much it would cost to fix, and the salesman called and told us he could get our jeep paid off, if we wanted to trade it in...so since the other jeep had no warranty and they were going to pay if off even though it was broken, we traded it in! And they gave us a GREAT deal on the new one as well.
So I have a beautiful new Jeep Cherokee, that has a warranty that will last a long time...and the best part is IT STARTS! Yes it runs and starts whenever I WANT IT TO, not when it feels like it! Thanks to my sweet hubby who made this all happen!

Elite 8! EMAW

I thought K-State was going to give me a heart attack at an early age last night! Although I do believe I had a slight anxiety attack! But after 2 OT they finally got the job completely done and beat Xavier 101-96! I am so proud of them and the toughness they showed last night. Let's just hope that the next game against Butler does not go to OT or I might just have a heart attack! And for you non K-state people EMAW means "Every Man A Wildcat"

You might be wondering how I can be following K-State even though I am a die hard Aggie. Well 2 reason-1) I got my master's from Kansas State and just fell in love with the town and the college while I was there, 2) The love of my life, Matt, graduated from there. We at least have K-State in common! Even though I was very sad (actually I cried) when the Aggies ran out of time against Purdue, I can say that I am lucky because I have another team that I can continue to cheer for. I will always be an Aggie, but today I am a Wildcat! LET'S GO STATE!

We are heading over to our wonderful friends, Natalie and Travis Riley's house (well her parent's house) to help them cheer on the Baylor Bears against St. Mary's. Matt was going to try and find a bear costume to wear to show his support but we didn't have time. Gotta love him for trying though!

Happy Friday Everyone...and hopefully there will be no more anxiety attacks!

Wow it's been over a month...

since my last post. Where does the time go?? Well I can tell you. It's goes on 3 weekends trips in the last month! Traveling for the weekends really takes it out of me and then I get back to work and forget all about blogging. I told myself that I was going to do better but that doesn't seem to be happening. I tell myself I am going to do better at a lot of things but I don't do that either. Just been down in the dumps lately I guess, and I really hope that I can pull myself out of it. I will just give you a brief over view of the last month or so.

Valentine's Day was fun for Matt and I. We went and saw Miranda Lambert at Billy Bob's. She is such an amazing performer! We both loved going to see her and it was fun because it had been a long time since it was just Matt and I going out. Blake Shelton (her boyfriend if you didn't know)came out on stage for the last few songs! It was awesome to see them together and so happy. I truly hope the best for them because we can all see what the spot light can do for relationships.

The next weekend I was in Norman, Oklahoma supporting the UTA track team. They had their indoor conference meet there so I was lucky enough to be able to go and support them. I really love going to the meets so that my students see me outside the office and see that I really do care about them.

The first weekend in March was spent in Manhattan, Kansas at Fake Paddy's Day. This is a yearly celebration in Manhattan where the bars open at 9am and it's a party all day. We had such a great time catching up with friends and just being back in Manhattan for a weekend. I never went to Fake Paddy's Day while I actually lived in Manhattan, and now I wish I had. It was a blast!

The second weekend of March I was back up in Kansas for my dear friend Lindsey Berger's bridal shower and bachelorette party. We had such a blast! I can't wait until her wedding, because it is going to be so much fun. I will post pictures later(well some of the pictures).

This past week was spring break, but we only got friday off. What a bummer. Although I was out Monday and Tuesday because I was sick. So needless to say it wasn't really a good week. I am still trying to get over whatever it was that I had, but I am feeling better.

So in short that is a brief summary of what I have been up to the last month. I am sure there was so much more to talk about, I just don't want to bore y'all with all the details.
