I can't believe it is already Thursday night! This week flew by so quickly! Only a few days are left before I'm at the school all of the time. Sad day.

Friday night, Michael and I visited Alan and Rachel Wages. They cooked us a lovely dinner of pecan-crusted tilapia, tasty mashed potatoes, a medley of fruit, and an amazing chocolate cake. Yum-yum! We had a great time! We played a game I've never played before, Sequence. The boys beat us on that one, but we smoked them in Taboo. Girls just know how to communicate better.

Saturday, my roommate of 4 years, my matron of honor, and my best friend - Lori- had a baby shower! Baby Faith is due in early October. We made the shower Parisian themed - Bonjour Bebe! We had so much fun! Here are some pictures:

Saturday night, we met up with all of the couples that were married this summer. Tiffany and Eddie had everyone over. What a beautiful place! We swam, watched Napolean Dynomite and Office Space, watched some Ranger baseball, and ate pizza. Can you believe we were nearly not invited because we had been married too long?!? Today (the 3rd) marks our 11 months!! One more month until a year already!

Sunday, Michael and I taught the high school class. Again, kids at RE are so great. I'm amazed by them so often. Sunday night, there was an ice cream social at church. I had some of the best ice cream in my life that night. John Boyd won the contest for the gelato he made.

Tuesday and Wednesday, Michael and I stayed in FW because Michael would be working there for a few days. We stayed in Sundance Square. Downtown FW is so much better than Dallas. So many more options and you feel totally safe walking down the street. I got to go shopping for work Wednesday!! I love new clothes!

Wednesday, Cingular went crazy. Anyone else not able to connect?? It was horrible for me. I was suppose to pick Michael up from work and I had no way of knowing where to pick him up. (we had made arrangements to call each other that afternoon to discuss where to meet.) For some reason, text messaging was still available, so that saved us.

Today I had a training workshop. It looks like I'll have a pre-AP class this year. BTW, I'm not thrilled about that. I'll have to get 24 more hours this year because of this I think. I never wanted pre-ap, I like my regulars. Oh, and our water heater broke today. Thanks for the emergency fund post, Brett!

Tomorrow, we are going to a "guess who's coming to dinner" that is centered around the youth group at RE. I love the hostess' cooking and those kids, so this should be a good time.

I hope all is well out there in Blogland. I hope your summer has been blessed and that the fall brings blessings as well.

Do you need a new water heater? If so, you can do it yourself (Michael and another guy). All you need is a truck. It'll save you quite a bit of money. Call me if you want to talk about it.

I'm so sad I missed Lori's shower! We had a baby shower for Mallory the same day (it was planned last minute in Burkburnett) or I would've been there. Lori is cute pregnant. I miss you guys!

I made tilapia on Wednesday night. Mmmm, so good. But I made zuccini, quash and pasta to have with it.

"Guess Who's Coming To Dinner" centered around the youth group...what??

Brett, we actually had another hot water heater in our garage that we're using now. There was no way Michael could have installed it himself because they had to move around pipes and stuff. So, after an installation fee over $500, we're good to go again.

Shannon, I haven't emailed you to tell you how cute Mallory is! She's a doll! I hope I can see her soon!

Kaitlin, it was supposes to be for REYG, but only 2 kids showed up...everyone else had to bail. So it ended up being 7 adults and 2 kids. Not much talk about the youth group after that.

Lori's having a little Stacy baby? Sweet.
