Last weekend, I went to the Mizzou/K-State football game in Manhattan, KS. The tigers pulled off an easy win and I got to have some fun spending time with my extended family. I have a cousin who is a senior at K-State so it's become a tradition for him, me and my cousin Aaron (Aaron and I went to Mizzou) to go the the football game each year with our dads---our dads are brothers.

I was reminded that I can't really party like I used to. The game started at 11:30 and then we immediately went to the bars to start drinking. It was a lot of fun and I even got to play some rounds of PhotoHunt on the Mega Touch! Good times. But, also, after spending some time at my cousin's house (basically a fraternity house for the seniors in his fraternity) I was very grateful that I don't have to deal with immature college guys anymore and made me feel even luckier to have my wonderful husband back at home waiting for me (OK you can all gag:). My parents had to drag me out of the bar (and off the dance floor) at about 11 PM to take me back to our hotel room. Here's a picture of some my three cousins who went to the game with me.

Tonight I'm going to the movie theater to see Twilight and then to watch the midnight showing of New Moon. I absolutely cannot wait and have really found it hard to concentrate at work today, I'm so excited. I'm going to have to pay for it tomorrow, though since I'll be lucky to get four hours of sleep tonight. I'm sure it will be worth it though.

For those of you who don't understand the Twilight hype...take a look at the photo below. And, yes, I know he's only 17!


  1. I most certainly can't party like I used to either!! Enjoy New Moon-everyone is talking about this. I might have to jump on the Twilight bandwagon!

  2. I will be seeing the movie on sunday..I just jumped on the bandwagon.

    Good luck and HIGH FIVE for your race this weekend.

  3. OMG! I love the whole series...the books and the movies so far. I thought the movie was really good, but New Moon was my favorite book too. Overall, though, I've heard mixed reviews on the New Moon movie. I'm seeing it on Sunday for a second time, after my half. Yeah, I need to get a life!

    Thanks for the high fives ladies!

  4. Um yeah, I read Twilight this weekend and watched the movie. Finished on Thursday and can't get my hands on New Moon - everyone I know that owns it has it out on loan and the library had all 83 copies checked out!!! GRRRR!!!
