Maceo Parker... and a new car.

So two fun things to post about today. First, I finally got my new car! I picked it up Monday and already put 140 miles on it. It's a black Mazda 3 hatchback and it's super fun to drive. Of course I'm trying to be gentle with it, as the break-in period is 600 miles, but it's just so hard not to hit the gas and go. It's got a bunch of fun features, including a moon roof, 6 disc MP3 player, red back lighting, plenty of storage, and an AUX jack for my ipod. I'll try to get around to posting some pictures soon, but I just haven't taken them off my camera yet.

Also, last night I went to see Maceo Parker. He's the guy that played sax with James Brown, and now has his own band. Over all it was an excellent show. They did a lot of funk, a little blues, and a little rap even! All total he played for about 3 hours, and by midnight I was so tired I didn't think I'd make it home without falling asleep. It was quite a late night for me!

It's been a while...

So I guess it's been over a months since I posted something to this. Lots of new things to talk about and lots of crazy stuff happening in my life.

First, I went to France with my parents for 9 days. That was super fun. We saw Paris, Mont St. Michel, Normandy, Bruges, Amserterdam, Rotterdam, and Diana. You can check out my photo site to see some of the pictures. Yea, I know, I need to get flickr but I just haven't done that yet.

Since then I've been traveling like a mad woman! I've been to houston a whole bunch, a wedding in south carolina, and this weekend I'm planning on going back to PA for two days to see karen and the girls and my parents. I'm also planning a wine tour and a mexico trip for this fall... oh yea, and a trip to Disney to see my friend, Rachael, get married.

I'm also getting a new car! yay! I've FINALLY decided on a black mazda 3 hatchback with a moon roof and a Bose sterio system. I'm pretty excited, and i'm sure my friends are super happy about not having to listen to me try to decide on a color anymore. It was a long process and I'm so bad at making decisions. But I decided that black is the way to go, as it was the first one that really attracted my attention to the car, and well, i'll just have to learn how to keep it clean, or let it be dirty all the time.

Also, my friend, Heather, made this freaken awesome scarf for me. She's super talented at this knitting thing. I haven't seen it done yet, but the first part of it that I saw, looked super sweet.

And finally, I managed to sign up for the 25th anniversary of the MS150 ride this April 18/19, 2009. There were 13,000 spots and they filled up in 6 hours! That's a new record I think. I'll also be doing a 'training' ride two weeks before that, riding the Galveston 1/2 ironman relay.

So yea, I guess that gets us caught up. I'll try harder to post to this thing in the future.
