I stepped into an elevator alone. This is probably one of my greatest fears. Being alone in an elevator terrifies me. I can't tell you the last time I actually rode an elevator by myself. The thought petrifies me.
BUT.. I DID IT! I rode an elevator by myself, with a little encouragement from about 10 of my dental hygiene friends!! I told Leigh I wanted to get on it.. she encouraged me.... more like convinced me!! I was scared, palms were sweaty, stomach in knots.. crazy. So, I got on it. Then, as the doors started to shut I got halfway out so the door wouldn't shut. I thought I might have a heart attack. As you see, I didn't. I got back on. Leigh said, push the button and breathe... I did. The doors shut and I rode from the 4th floor to the 2nd. I squealed the whole way down... and when the doors opened and my friends were standing there clapping..I cried. Cried cause I rode it, cried cause they cared so much, cried cause I was glad to get off the elevator.. you name it.. I was crying about it... BUT I DID IT!!!
I don't think it's really fear...it's like I had a small issue with riding the elevator alone and I got so used to not riding the elevator alone that I figured I just couldn't ever ride it alone...but I forced myself to get over the fear... so NOW.. onto more elevators. I will conquer this..

hubs eating lunch
So, then he informs me we "have to go to his deer camp for a second" to take this deer stand down. It won't take long he promises. Make note, I still have to get ready for this party... like pick up the cake, get some decorations, etc... not just show up to the party. So, we head to his parents house... where we have to hook up the trailer, air the tires in the 4-wheeler, load the 4-wheeler, go to Norman's house to get the ladder and drive to deercamp. We arrive at the deercamp to take down the deerstand because they are clear cutting the land. As most of you know, I am a tree hugging hippie. I love the world. So, I almost cry and stop to take a picture of the trees they are going to cut down.
Sad about the trees :(
We unload the 4-wheeler and the ladder to ride to our deerstand destination. We get off the 4-wheeler, walk about 50 yards to the tree.. and I'm thinking.. this is gonna take a second. Look at the pic below.. that's not gonna take a second to move.. more like days.
Long story longer, it took 3 hours and I had to book it to get back, get dressed, get the cake, get the decorations and get to the party.. all before the surprise guest arrived. WHEW!

Look at these guys.. they are living it up. I even convinced Mom and Pops to join in on the fun. We pretty much just people watched all night. Even ran into some of the most random people ever.. a cousin of mine that lives in Magee, Celeste Sutherland, Brad Vice (my 8th grade boyfriend), Chris Snells dad, Ben Malley, and the list goes on. I had no idea it was the place to be!

When we went to Florida a few weeks ago and stayed with The Jones', they do this fabulous wine and cheese each night on the beach. Tiffany and I absolutely fell in love with the idea. Tiffany decided we would do it while we were on the coast.. so we found this awesome cheese place called Epicure and loaded up on some cheeses. Then we headed to a liquor store to stock up on some wine.. we had to keep the party indoors due to the impending rain.. but since we had an ocean view.. it seemed like we were on the beach!Riley wanted to participate, so we gave her some wine (apple juice) in her own little wine glass. She thought she was on top of the world.. *make note, she did down that apple juice rather quickly. I think her parents might want to be a bit concerned.
This guy's ( I refer to him as a guy because I have no idea who he was) dog decided he was hungry.. so he wanted to lick on the dirty plates. I guess he was successful because he later threw up on BFF's floor.

So, for the annual event, since this is the first year I have actually lived here and been able to celebrate the momentous occassion.. I decided cupcakes were a must. So, being the Betty Crocker that I am, I whipped up some fab cupcakes with almond icing.. and if I must say so myself, they were delish! I had to give my cupcakes a shoutout!
Moving right along, if you don't know that Saranne and I married two friends from Rankin County, well now you know. They give us all kinds of grief because A. we are from Hinds County which is not nearly as cool as Rankin County B. we are from Byram and they technically consider that "South Jackson" and C. we are BFF and that requires a lot of time being spent together.
So, Jenny P and I were perusing around Chane in Fondren the other day and I spotted it.. The light shone down from the sky.. and there it was.. BFF's birthday present.. The most perfect gift EVER.. so perfect.. I got myself one. See below!
I couldn't resist it when this lady stood up and had a serious wedgie.. Those aren't shorts.. it's a skirt with a serious problem.. called "you should wear panties so you don't have people take pictures of your awful wedgie"
*make note: BFF has already sported her SOUTH JACKSON shirt. Thanks for making me proud and representin'!!!!

She hasn't been feeling so well these last few weeks and her doctor visits have been costing us an arm and a leg. We haven't even seen her for three weeks since she has been at the hospital. She may come out alive.. but if she does.. she's heading to a local parking lot with a for sale sign on her.
*Also, make note, my husband is loving this seeing as how I refused to let him have a truck.. looks like his wish is coming true after all my huffing and puffing.

JenBenHoboski, me, Ashlea
JenBen is a third story. JenBen has been dating a good friend of mine from highschool.. Josh Hobock. They have been together for like 10 years or something.. ok not that long, but you get the point here. Anyway, so I have become friends with the future Mrs. JenBenHoboski!! I am enjoying getting to know her. She's so fun to be around. Anyway, so Hobock finally proposed and we have another wedding to plan!!! Good grief guys, stop getting married!! I can't keep up.
This is the worst story ever. Josh and I pulled up to his parents house to celebrate Mother's day and we came across these two random dogs. Well, there are actually three, but the third one was down at the pond with Josh's cousin. Here is the story of how these pups came about... My grandpaw in law was coming to my in-laws for Mother's Day supper. He passed a dog that seemed extremely malnourished. He got to my in-laws house and told my MIL about the dog he saw. She loves animals and they decided to go back and get the dog. Well, they get there and this sweet little thing has a brother and a sister that come walking out. All 3 have been starving to death.. literally. They are skin and bones and nothing else. When Josh and I arrive, we only see two.. everyone kept telling us, the third one was much worse. This is the worst I have ever seen any dogs.
This is the third dog... can you believe this??

Oh yeah, some exciting news. I am finished with BIOLOGY! If you refer back to a previous post where I discussed my disgust with Biology.. you will understand how thrilled I am about this accomplishment. I even came out of the class with a B!! I even failed the last test and the final and still made a B!! Now, that's what I am talking about. I had to make at least a 34 on the final to have a B! I made a 58.. still an F and I don't even care! If you know me, I am pretty anal retentive about grades, so this is a big deal for me NOT to care. I got an A in lab too which makes things even better.
Josh is going out of town this weekend.. for a man trip.. to do man things.. with his man friends. Whatever that consist of! Im pretty pumped I get to do whatever I want. Think I will put clean sheets on the bed, soak in the tub, paint my toes, watch a movie, better yet... watch Sex and The City!!!! MMMM, I can already tell this is gonna be a good weekend.
I do have to attend Dan's shower Saturday night, which by the way, Claire is not coming too cause she is a piece of crap bridesmaid. She hasn't come to anything. You suck CLAIRE! Saranne's not coming either, but she at least made it to her shower the other weekend.
I'll post pics of that fo sho!
Ok, must take a bath to head to class... boo. I will be glad when school is over.

I have printed out several articles to use as a discussion for it.. so hopefully I can get on a 5th grade level and maybe even get a smile or two out of these kids. Wish me luck, cause I am literally scared to death.. probably won't be able to sleep tonight.

Tomorrow is the adventures of my first paint job! Brother and I are going to paint the babies room since Stephanie has to work, has been having heart problems and shouldn't be around paint anyway. I will be sure to take my camera... cause only the Lord knows what kind of hot mess we are going to make of the room or ourselves.
I must stop procrastinating and get dressed....

Riley loves her GiGi. She gets to do whatever she wants when she comes over. Well, her favorite pastime is coloring. She will make one mark on the page and then move onto the next page. The pages weren't enough, so she moved onto her legs and arms. I had to take a pic when I came home to show her mother at a later date!!!!
I hate you biology and I WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW. You torture me all week with your chromatin and chloroplast. I don't care about how you get your air, whether it's cell respiration or anaroebic. You make me cringe with just the thought of you. I don't care if you are prokaryotic or eukaryotic. So what if you have a nucleus and your transported. I wish you knew how I despised you. I wish you could be me for a day. I wish you only knew just how much grief you cause me. I don't care if I ever see you again.
Aunt Haywee loves Neice Riwee. We always have a good time playing. On this particular night, we decided to make cupcakes since there was a party at her house the next day for her family. We got out all the mix and started our journey. I did most of the work if you can't tell. She did most of the eating. Oh, we enjoyed raw cake dough.. yes it had eggs in it and she didn't get salmonella. I never did, so I figured we were good to go. Then, we moved on to the icing. We made homeade icing with shortening and powdered sugar. I let her stick her finger in the bowl, eat it off the mixer and lick it off the spatula. She even licked a hunk of powdered sugar off my hand. She was cracked out and I went home!!!! She was so cracked out, she woke up, climbed out of bed and opened all the birthday presents for the next day. (oh yeah..it wasn't her birthday) Glad I went home!!! :)
We walk a little further to discover he removed the trash can from under the desk and attempted to rummage through it. There was nothing worth anything in the trash, so he ate the rug. Wow, way to go Poley.
Bless his soul, he was really sad about his bed. When he was ready to go to bed, he just keep looking at it and then looking at us... basically asking us to fix it. I just put all the stuffing back on it and didn't really clean it up. He would go over there for a sniff or two...then he started pawing it.. trying to put it back together. I really felt sorry for him, but I couldn't help but laugh. He finally realized we weren't going to do anything. So, he got in it and went night night. We made him suffer for a week or two. He now has a new bed... a $15 dollar bed thats leopard print! He's gonna be gay!
