Snowboarding = Migraines

So, up to this point in my life I have never been able to go snowboarding. But lucky for me my job requires that I actually learn how to ski and snowboard. So in the last couple of weeks I have gone skiing once (and did pretty well) and snowboarding twice (and did okay). Well, every time I go snowboarding I go home with a migraine. I feel it is very rude of the mountain to send me home, every time I go play on it, with a migraine. I try so hard to play nice and be good to the mountain and every time I go home with a migraine. I am sure it has nothing to do with my snowboarding abilities. I mean it is natural to fall when you are first learning how to snowboard, but I don't believe it is natural to get a migraine after each time. So, I concluded, it must be the mountain being rude to me and not my snowboarding skills.
The End!

(In case anyone is wondering, no this is not me...per se.)

Top of the A reunion!

This last week I went out to dinner with some old roommates (or almost roommates). It was so much fun seeing everyone. I hadn't seen Ashlee (far right) for about 5 years!!! It was great catching up with her and everyone else. My roommates were the coolest ever!!! I still remember that ridiculous fort someone made...and George, who can ever forget George.

One of the best things about the holidays is the food! We had so much pie this year, it was great. We had enough pie for everyone to have half a pie. I had a sliver of pumpkin pie and the rest was French Silk Pie. It was DELICIOUS!!! I loved every moment of it...

And so did my Grandma...ha ha ha!

She would not let anyone eat her peacan pie. (They had to sneak it when she left the table!)

I guess one of the other great things about the holidays is family. Aren't my cousin and sis so cute as the pose for the picture! (Not to mention my nephew in the background.)

I am currently living in the basement of my dear Gma's house with my cousin, Jenna. For some reason my Gma agreed to let us take down some old wallpaper and paint it whatever color we wanted. So, here are some great pictures from the paint job. The color looks baby blue in the picture, but it's really darker and looks better - I promise!

As you can see in the last picture the other walls are a bright orange color. Tonight I showed these pictures to my Gma and she is now letting us redo the orange walls as well. It should be very interesting redoing these walls because the walls are made of cinder block. Hopefully, we will be able to figure something out.

So, my Grandma Nan and I went on a date the other night. We first went to the house that her father built and where she grew-up and took some pictures for posterity's sake. Then, we went out to dinner. We had so much fun! I love my Gma!

This picture is of the 'O' my Great-Grandfather put in the sidewalk in front of their home for Owens - their last name. It's sideways because I can't figure out how to change it.
