In Need of a Book

I'm looking for a book to read. Any suggestions? I like pretty much anything, except science fiction.

Looking forward to...

...a night of TV watching! Yes, I am a dork, but I am so looking forward to watching TV tonight. Survivor and Friday Night Lights are on at 7. I'll have to record one and watch it at 8. Then, the American Idol results show is on at 8. I'll record it and watch it after I finish Survivor and Friday Night Lights. Can't wait to curl up in my jammies and relax on the couch. Oh, and if Sanjaya doesn't get voted off Idol, I may have to stop watching. Does he remind anyone else of Michael Jackson?

Jill's Story

Last weekend, my friend Jill got married at Oak Alley Plantation in Lousiana. Since there were only 22 people at the wedding, it was a fabulous weekend of spending time with Jill and Maher, telling stories, laughing, eating, chatting, and just generally hanging out.
I met Jill in college. We were in the same sorority but weren't especially close. I lost touch with her after college until she moved to KC and she randomly called me up one day. Since then, she's become one of my best friends.
Some of favorite Jill memories:
~Eating at Sweet Tomatoes. Mac and cheese, yogurt with sprinkles, brownie muffins...yum, yum!
~Road trip to Yellowstone! Best road trip ever, in my book. Jill taught me to embrace spontaneity (okay, embrace might be too strong a word) but I learned to let go of my agenda and just go with the flow.
~Smushed peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!!
~It really is ice!
~Jill introduced me to antique Red Wing crocks. I now own two of them and have a couple hundred dollars less in the bank. :)
~Cruising for depression era glass in Omaha. Hickory, NC here I come!
~Swinging on her front porch, drinking wine, and talking about our hopes, dreams, and fears.
Jill, I love your assertiveness, your humor, your love of things with character, your vulnerability, your sense of fun, your adventurous spirit, your organization, your I am so happy that you have found your home with Maher.

I went to a wedding in Louisiana over the weekend. Not only was it a great wedding (more on that in a future post), but I got to cross another state off my list of states to visit. Only 6 to go!!

If any one wants to visit Alaska, Oregon, Idaho, North Dakota, Mississippi, or Rhode Island, let me know. I'm in!
