Fun Weekend

This weekend we went to Georgetown, SC. This is were my husband grew up. His parents do not live there anymore :( But we still try to get down there at least once or twice a year. We have a few more excuses to get down there this year, with a wedding or two, and a high school reunion coming up. This weekend, we were down there for a wedding shower. We had lots of fun (and good seafood). I am kind of envious of him for having that small town experience. Not that I am a metropolitan city slicker or anything, but I grew up in a suburb of Columbia, SC that developed very quickly. When I came home from college, nothing was the same. When Josh goes back to Georgetown, nothing has changed. I guess I just find that to be refreshing and different than what I am used to.

Anyone who cheats on their spouse is a loser. What a weak, sad, broken person. Ewww.

God is good!

On my lunch hour today, I visited my co-worker, turned dear friend, Carla. she just gave birth yesterday to little Cullum Elizabeth! I am so overwhelmed with joy for Carla and her husband! They have waited so long for God to bless them with a child. It is so heartwarming. Miracles happen everyday folks!!

Sensitive Subject

Lately some fashion spreads have prominently featured plus-size models. This is not exactly what comes to mind when I think of "plus size" I am glad that the fashion world is starting to turn a corner, but I don't think this woman is plus size. And if she is, then I am about a cheeseburger away from being plus size too. There is nothing wrong with being plus size. But my point is, what is the big deal about this? She looks pretty slender to me.

I have been thinking about this, and it makes sense. Models are usually around a size zero, or at the smallest size that the clothes are made in. So it makes sense that this size 12 model is the model for her size category. Plus size is 12+. But, the average size of a woman in America is a 14. Clothing sizes mean nothing to me really. They are inconsistant. And as long as you look/feel good who cares?! Yeah!!

Snow in SC!

Yay!! Snow!! We never get snow. I am kind of glad that we don't have to worry about driving in that on a regular basis, or shoveling our driveway in the mornings. So it is a nice treat every few years for a day or so :) And we did not lose power this year, but some people did :( I looked up what was closed or cancelled this weekend. All the retail stores were open, but after school and church activities were cancelled. The library was open and the Zoo was open. I thought that was kind of strange....who the hell wants to go to the Zoo? I can't go to church, but i can go to the Zoo! So silly :)

Poor guy! He was only 21 years old. I really wish that they would stop playing his death over and over again on the news, it is a horrible image. I am sure that is just awful for his friends and family. They even played it on the jumbo screen all day in Vancouver!

You don't say???

Does anyone think that some people over-use words? Like the word Amazing, or the word Literally? Kind of annoying. Expand your vocab, why don't ya?
