An End of an Era....

A while ago when I was home, my mom and I cleaned everything out of my room. I had this dresser/armoire thing that, duriny my N'Sync obsession days, I complete covered the entire thing with pictures of the fellas. When I was home last, my mom said that someday I would have to take all of those off. I told her that I probably wouldn't be able to do it and that it would be better for her to just do it and tell me when its over. (are you laughing yet)

Well, today I received the email from my mom that has been done. All the pictrues and the cutouts are now gone. My mom informed me that it was a sad event for her, having to take all of those pictures off. She was sad because she knew it was such a big part of my life and now it was no more. I'm still awaiting her response as to if there were any tears. So, the N'Sync era in my room has officially come to an end. Let the grieving process proceed. (not really, but I sort of feel like I should, a little).

Its just a good thing Justin is coming out with a new cd very soon to ease my pain. He's bringing Sexy back.

Dodgeball... Dip, Duck, Dodge, Dive, and Dodge

So today was the Iowa Games and I played on a dodgeball team called The Ligers. Well, we didnt win, but it sure was a lot of fun. I just dont understand how competitive people get, especially over a playground game! First of all, you've got a bunch of young adults who think they're pretty great athletes talking smack to one another dressed in awesome uniforms. Then, you think you're a pretty good athlete so you whip that ball as hard as you can at your opponent, only, the ball is so freakin light, you throw your arm out in the process and make a fool of yourself because your throw didnt even come close to hitting someone. I think I laughed more watching guys throw as hard as they could and completely whiff!
And then theres those, like me, who find themselves being stared down by 3 huge guys. They come charging at you and all you want to do is curl up into a ball. Nonetheless, you just scream and hope they don't take my head off. What can I say, I am a girl!
But, it was a fun time. We had some great competition and I got to see some people literally get laid out by the ball! Quite comical! Who knew, that the game you loved as a child would make a roaring comeback into the 2000's. Nothing like a little dodgeball on the weekends!

220 East 9th Reunion

A weekend in the making, and a weekend it was! Branson, Missouri was our destination and the pictures are only a snapshot of the weekends activities. From shopping, going to the beach, eatting out, stopping by kamp, and more shopping, we had a great time! The roadtrip down was filled with surprises. Take the montrocity of a sign known as Mr. Terrible. He really just sticks right out there on the road doesn't he. And then the road trip home, we listened to the entire book of The Devil Wears Prada, not very exciting!! Throughout the weekend, new songs were created, there was discussion about food and what it does to ones body (i.e. mexican food), the crazy bransonites and the happenings in a walmart parking lot, etc etc etc.... so much to say and you really would only understand if you were there! And unless you're part of 220, you'll never fully understand!
