It's been way too long . . .

since I've written on this blog!! I've officially broken my own personal blogging rule: never go a week without writing an entry! So for that, I apologize. I do have an excuse though. . .

For the past 2 weeks Brian and I have been very busy, and without internet at our apartment! After driving down from Fargo, we immediately started looking for places to live in Charlotte. After some debate, we decided not to buy a house, and are currently living in an apartment. I like it a lot. It's not quite as big as the apartment we lived in last off season, but it certainly smells better! We moved in last week, and then I left to go down to Edisto for a long weekend with my college girlfriends: Katie, Melissa, and Shannon.

We get together every year, and as usual, it was such a wonderful time! We talked for hours on end. I miss being in those girls' daily lives so much. I even got emotional one day just thinking about how much I've missed them, and how good it was to be with them again.

I got back from Edisto on Sunday, and started work on Monday. I'm the Director of Communications for the owner of two different companies, which is the same position I had last off season. Although, I think I'm going to enjoy it more this time around. My responsibilities have changed a little, and it's also nice to come back to something familiar.

So yesterday was my first day back, which kind of stunk because Brian wasn't working, and it was his birthday! We celebrated after I got home though. Jerry and Marilyn took Brian and I, along with Darren and Wava, to an italian restaurant here in Charlotte called Maggiano's. It was very good, but we all walked out of there way too full! I gave Brian a Carolina Panthers sweat shirt for his birthday. I like it a lot more than the jersey he wants. He says he just wants it to wear around the house on game days, but I have a feeling he's going to wear it in public. Athletic jerseys are just dorky and unfashionable (if that's a word) if you ask me. But I'll love him just the same!

We still have some really nice houses here in Raleigh LA. Our neighbors two houses down are seperating so I know their house will be open. It's very sad because they have a little boy who Reagan loves to play with. But I'm sure once y'all moved in there would be Brian Junior coming soon. We could even get baby and daddy little matching Panther jersey's. That would be awesome!!! I hope y'all are doing great and look forward to seeing you some time soon.

I spent many years trying to groom my fashionably challenged brothers and thought I had done a pretty good job...but seriously, a Panthers jersey??? Ouch!!! So glad you didn't make that purchase, Lindsay!!
