Good News X 3

today. First Kimberly won her school softball game, yeah Kim!! She made a triple off of a bunt. It was a pretty bunt too. Then we went over to the high school because Steph was being inducted into the National Honor Society. My smart girl. Here are some pics from it.

Stephanie holding her certificate and wearing her gold tassle around her neck that she will eventually wear over her cap and gown this time next year.

Steph and Will.

Then the third thing was that we won our rec softball game 8-6!!! I was sooo proud of my girls. They did so well.

Oh, and Steph found a prom dress. It is gorgeous. I will wait to post pics of it when she is wearing it on prom night. Kim has 8th grade prom so we are continuing our search for a dress for her this weekend.

On Saturday we are going to a college softball game, a double header. It will be UNC-Chapel Hill against Florida State I think. Go Heels!!!

Hope everyone is having a great week and I want to wish my dear friend Jude a very Happy Birthday!! Many more to you dear. Muah!

Softball season has started once again

yesterday and we lost our first game, but won the second one!! Not too bad of a start. We had opening ceremonies Friday night and I worked the pitching station where they tell you how fast you can pitch a ball. It was so much fun watching all the little ones do this. They looked so cute in their little uniforms. Stephanie dressed up in the San Diego chicken costume. She had so much fun wearing it and entertaining the little kids. I will try and post a pic of it. Will took some on his phone, but he hasn't emailed them to me yet.

I have recently registered myself on a high school alumni site. It is specifically for my high school, so I don't have to pay to get other people's emails and stuff. It's been great catching up with people I haven't talked to in a long time. I am trying to arrange lunch with some of the girls. That should be fun. We have our 20 year reunion this fall. I don't know if I am going or not. Time will tell.

It's a rainy, cold day here. I told the girls I would take them shopping and maybe a movie. My other option is to clean and do laundry. Hmmm... I think I'll opt for shopping.

Have a great week everyone!

I'm putting together my birthday wish list

a little early. Well just a month early. I usually don't have a clue as to what I want, but this year I know exactly what I want. Naturally, I will list these from most wanted to least wanted.

1. Mini Cooper (just like this one)

2. A new digital camera (this one would be good)

3. And last, but not least this:

Oh, I guess I should add a "fantasy wish" right? Something along the lines of this maybe:

A girl can dream, right? LOL!

I'm back from the beach!

And came back to colder weather, yikes!! I want to go back to the beach where we had temps in the low 80's and no humidity. It actually snowed here Friday night. WTF!!! Don't get me wrong. I don't particularly like how hot it gets here in the summer, mainly because of the humidity, but snow in April??!! Give me a break.

We did have a very relaxing time at the beach. Topsail is known for 2 things:

These rocks that are just as abundant as shells on the beach:

And these:

Pretty cool, huh? Ken and I spent most mornings walking the beach and collecting these. It became a contest to see who could find the biggest one. Our daughter Stephanie won.

The first evening we were there, we were greeted by this view off our back deck:

This is overlooking the sound. Gorgeous view. It was very nice just to sit out on the deck and watch the sun set each evening.

Kim wouldn't let us take her picture, but we managed to capture a great one of Steph:

All in all, we had a great time. I just hate to have to go back to work tomorrow. Boo!!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend and Happy Easter!
