My new Blog!

In case you haven't heard, I am now writing another blog along with the ZPO site. If you are interested, than take a look! Here is BIO-GIRL ! I am pretty excited about it!

Looks like the Super Bowl party is on a roll. We are planning on 4:30 at Charing and Scott's. Everyone is bringing a dish and some drinks. We are also going to have a pool going, so there might even be a little money in it for you! Can't wait to see everyone there!

The Meeting that Wasn't

Look!!! I am actually keeping my promise of another post by the end of the week!! Just so you know, I am really proud of myself. to the post...

Our January meeting was scheduled for last Friday, but sadly it fell apart. We were meeting at Liz's new house so we could all see how great it is. Unfortunately, the day of the meeting Liz had a TERRIBLE toothache and it was just not possible for her to host a dinner when she was so miserable. We thought of still having it, but Candice was in South Carolina and Missy had to work, so we thought it was best to postpone. We are hoping to all get togther for our next meeting really soon, but the date hasn't been set. I will keep you all posted!

We have all had so much going on these days. Candice is in high swing with her student teaching and interviews for next year. It has been really tough, but it is so exciting. Candice, we know you will get a great school and the perfect job!

Rhi and her new beau Travis have been spending lots of time together and it is going really great! We are hoping to meet him at Super Bowl. Speaking of which, Charing and Scott are having people over for the game, and we are all invited! Should be great!! We will work out the details later.

As for the rest of us, life is crazy but good. Work is crazy, home is know you know. We are back to our 130 meetings every Saturday morning, so that is great (great company for breakfast but the scale can be cruel....)

Anyways, I am heading for SIS day so I must run, but really wanted to keep my promise. I will say that I had to go back and read all the old posts on the site the other day due to a request to remove anything that is not appropriate, and let me tell you...I really enjoyed it! Whenever you all are waiting weeks for a new post, you should just go read the old ones and see how great I used to be at posting and all the great stuff we have done! Thats it for now. Have a great weekend!!

looks like great form to me!

and she guards...that is also really I assume

Morgan, we might not all be great b-ball players, but we do know one when we see one. We are all so proud of you!!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I promise to post with updates on ZPO life by the end of the week, but for now I am off to dinner. Hope everyone is having a great week!

The Best New Years Eve Party EVER!!

You know how New Years partys almost always kind of disappoint. No matter how much work you put into it, the party just never lives up to what you feel like a New Years bash should be?? Well, let me tell you this DID NOT happen this year! We had the best night ever!!

Caring and Scott were so wonderful and had the New Years party at their house. It is so great to do things over there because they have so much room for all of us. They have the perfect party house!

One wonderful thing that helped to make the party perfect was that all seven ZPO's were there! With our busy schedules and different lives, that commonly is difficult for a big holiday, but we pulled it off to bring in the new year!

The party was actually really big! Everyone seemed to bring a few extra people (very few of which seemed to be pictured...because...well, we like pictures of ourselves!) But the point being, we had a really good crowd (very important for a new years party). The Kelseys had gone all out and had tons of great food and of course a never ending supply of any alcohol you can thing of (also very important for the perfect new years party!)

We had some important guests that are worth mentioning...First off, Josh was in from the war! He had his leave over the holiday so he got to spend new years with us. It was so wonderful to see him home safe and sound! He looks so grown up! We also got to meet Gunner for the first time! He is Davis and Candice's new German Shepherd puppy. He is just about the cutest thing I have ever seen. Between Gunner, Ebony and Chach, Carter was very entertained!!

The party rolled into the early morning with people drinking, laughing...and I am pretty sure there was even some dancing going on! Nick and I headed for home around 4am and still left a handful of people sitting around in the garage laughing and talking. Like I said...the best new years party ever!!

Happy New Year ZPO...and other things

Happy Happy New Year ZPO and all of the ZPO family and friends! We all rolled into the new year with a HUGE party at Charing and Scotts which was just about as fun as any new years party can eve be. I will have a party post up just as soon as I collect the pictures from everyone. Anyways, just wanted to put up a new post saying I was so happy to spend New Years Eve with all of my ZPO girls and I so hope that it was a great start to a great 2007!

A quick update on a couple of other things....

Our little genius Missy made straight A's! Missy, we are all so proud of you! Keep up the great work!

Are you ready for this one....Morgan made the HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL TEAM!!!!!!! Let me remind you that she is in the seventh grade. AMAZING!! Morgan, we are so proud! We can't wait to see you in the old red and black!

I fixed the link to the wedding pictures on the last post. My bad. I entered it in wrong. Anyways, it now works perfectly and you can take a look at the wedding pic's whenever you like!

I will also add that the ZPO's all had a great Christmas (maybe except for Rhi who spend a large chunk of it looking for her cat..but he was found!!) Candice and Davis have a new dog, Rhi has a new iRiver, Boo has a new kitchenaid, Missy has a new laptop, I have a new coat and a new coach (plus a new Wii I am completely addicted too), Liz has a new house, and Charing has a new wedding ring(plus starting today an empty house...which might be worth more)! Not bad at all!! We all missed our families that couldn't be with us, but all in all it was a perfect rainy Christmas! That's about it for now. I am off to work!
