Oh Kermie!!!!

You Are Miss Piggy

A total princess and diva, you're totally in charge - even if people don't know it.

You want to be loved, adored, and worshiped. And you won't settle for anything less.

You're going to be a total star, and you won't let any of the "little people" get in your way.

Just remember, piggy, never eat more than you can lift!

Friday Night

Sandy, John, John's friend DJ and I went to Chili's on Friday night. They have an all day 2-for-1 happy hour. I took a picture of our drinks. Sandy had Blue Moon beer and a water. I had the Mandarin Blush and a Dr. Pepper. We thought this picture was funny...6 drinks, 2 people, no food yet...

Here it is! My new car!

The front of my new car

We decided to trade in our 1996 Ford Taurus for a 2008 Ford Focus over the weekend. We picked up the new car on Monday...the only one they had was red, but it's a pretty red. The dealer had put on these "Focus Sport" stripes...which I didn't like!

My car with sporty stripes

So in order to make the sale, they took them off for me! I took it in yesterday for the removal and they detailed the car too!

Here it is today, looking much better!
