Cold Beer, Rockin Music, Great Friends!


Jenna, Rachelle and I attended The Osgood Grub Company's 2nd Annual Music Fest last night...and we had a BLAST! haha We had a few drinks (aka - enough to feel good, but the line was too long to get smashed), enjoyed some good rock music, and had fun hanging out.

The lineup included: Jeff Randall & Sunday's Best, Heroes & Madmen, Sweet Dilemma, 650 North (my hometown boys), and Seven Mary Three. Virgin Millionaires were also on the list, but they didn't end up being there...that was a bummer, I've seen them before in concert though, so it was okay. ha

Here's some pics! Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

A Glass of Wine A Day Keeps the Doc Away

Okay, okay...I know the saying is "an apple a day keeps the doctor away," but there are proven benefits from drinking a small amount of wine regularly. I am a huge fan of wine!! Ever since my Niagara Falls trip with Zach a few years ago, we have been wild about wine...haha My family and I have become novice wine enthusiasts and are always looking for our new favorite wine! I am a lover of dry wines and semi-sweets. Zach prefers semi-sweets. Jenna and Mom love the super sweet dessert/ice wines. Luckily we live in a part of the state that is home to several small wineries and it has been fun checking some of those out. We still have quite a list of places we want to go! As I sit here enjoying a glass of white vidal from my Canada trip a few years ago...I am so excited about the trip to Gatlinburg! There are a few well known wineries in the area and we are all looking forward to checking it out and bringing home some new wines! haha

So drink up everyone! Be merry and enjoy the health benefits! *wink*

The Happenings

Well, after my birthday...things really picked up! haha It's so sad to say that, but it's the truth! Oh well, I figure birthdays will be better again (if & when) I have someone to share them with...


This past weekend was really nice. The weather wasn't unbearable and I didn't have to work on Saturday, so it was all in all a good time! Jenna came home for the weekend, so she joined mom and I at The Grub for dinner Friday night after I got off work. Saturday morning we lazed around the house and entertained Toby. haha Saturday afternoon/evening we attended Sara & Andy's baby shower. I can't believe it's getting close to the time we'll all get to meet Baby Comer (Oct. 9th is the due date)! It was a nice "family" baby shower with everyone there. Neither Sara or Andy like to be the center of attention/have everyone watching them, so it was funny to see them open gifts! Mom had her 30th HS Reunion Saturday night as well...she got home well after we did...those old folks sure know how to party! *wink* haha Jenna and I ran errands in Greensburg after the baby shower and when we got home, Zach came over to hang out for awhile. He's been traveling ALL the time with work now that he's in Lexington, so I never get to see him anymore! Actually, while we were waiting on mom to come home from the reunion, the 3 of us planned a mini-vacation! We'd been talking about it with mom, but since Zach was here, we just decided to make the plans...and we did!! I'm really excited...actually, we're all really excited...about taking an extended weekend to Gatlinburg, TN in the middle of September! It'll be nice to just get away for a few days and not do the usual routine. We stayed up way too late Saturday night, but it was fun! Sunday morning we did our usual and had breakfast at Crossroads. I had to work in the afternoon, but mom and I managed a DQ trip for dinner! ha


We're back to the grind of the week...although today it is pouring down rain, and luckily I'm not having to work right now! If it ever stops (which it isn't supposed to today) I'll have to go work League tonight, but if I don't have to - mom and I are going to Greensburg just to break up the monotony! Can you tell we're getting tired of everything around us?!? ugh! It's frustrating and usually I'm so busy with a million different things that I don't notice the "tied to a place" feeling, but I am feeling trapped in this town right now! haha


On a side note...lots getting ready to take place...my Purdue course starts in 2 weeks (I paid for all that stuff yesterday), State Fair has finally arrived, Mom's birthday will start September off with a bang, and each week I seem to learn of friends expecting little ones! This year has truly been one of baby mania...at one point I counted around 25 babies due this year and already know of 10 for next year! And for us single people, it makes being single that much more lonely. It's one thing to hang out with couples, but once they start having babies, you tend to get left out of the circle of friends.
