Weekend Update

Well, I've got a few pictures to share, so I figured it was time to post. Last weekend was our trip to Texas -- and what a trip down memory lane it was! Friday night Pete got to witness his first West Texas high school football game. The Coogs were victorious against Hereford, and I think he had a pretty good time.
(Pete makes quite the Cooper Cougar face!)

Saturday night was the 'official' reunion dinner at MCM Elegante (sounds fancy, but it's just the Embassy Suites with a new name) where we were made to wear these LOVELY tags! Pete says my face looks like I was having some sort of allergic reaction to something! (nice, huh?)
(I thought the name tags were really cute -- and showed a lot of hard work had been put into them!)

It was really great to see everyone. There wasn't much time to visit at the dinner, but luckily Doodle's parents invited everyone to come over to their house afterwards for more catch up time -- I was terrible with my camera, though! Two days in Texas and I came home with three photographs -- I was too busy chatting it up to pose, I guess! Here are two that I did get:
Ian, me, Julie, and Nick

me and Leigh Ann

I was SO glad Leigh Ann caught us just as we were leaving -- I've kept up with her life for the last little while through her blog, but it was GREAT to chat -- even if only for a few minutes!

Early Sunday morning we flew back to Kentucky and had a week that just flew by! I had a midterm in Audiology at 9am on Monday (we get our test back tomorrow morning -- fingers crossed that I did well!). Friday night Pete and I went on a 'date' to see Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist -- it was really cute. Saturday we met Rachael, Sylvain, & Emily at Keeneland -- what a beautiful day to be at the races! I didn't win any of my bets, but pretty much everyone else did and we had a really good time.
We left Keeneland around 3:30pm to go home, change clothes, and head to Louisville for the evening. We were meeting Pete's sister , Audrey and her husband, Andrew to see Actors Theatre's performance of DRACULA. I'd never seen it before -- it was good -- the costumes, makeup, sound effects, etc. were really impressive. Count Dracula reminded me a little bit of Borat, but what can you do?

So that's about it from our house. We returned to choir practice this Wednesday as well and got the 'assignments' for our Christmas Program on Dec. 7th -- we're singing the Christmas Oratorio by Camille Saint-Saens -- and I'm singing the 3rd movement (eek!) So if you're in the area -- come hear us sing (Pete is featured in an octet as well) -- we have a guest bedroom! Happy Fall!
