Outside my window...

Right Now

Partly Cloudy
95° F
Feels Like: 100° F
Wind: Calm


I am thinking...about the possibility of moving to Birmingham.  Why Birmingham?  It's where my family is and much closer to Andrew's family.  and it's where I grew up.  We know more people there, and I have a friend who works in a lab that has an opening.  And I could carpool with Lisa!  Have you read her blog ... The Sarcastic Lab Rat?  If not, you should!!!!

I am thankful for...the feeling of peace I have today

From the kitchen...I made pan-fried chicken fingers last night!  big deal for me b/c I can NOT cook.  Seriously, you think I'm kidding, but no ... I suck horribly at cooking.  But I can make things that come from a box (usually)

I am wearing...jeans and a nice shirt and tennis shoes ... pretty much what I wear everyday.  One awesome thing about working here ... you can where whatever you want!

I am creating...a blog post ... haha (I laugh at my own humor).  I'm also running a gel electrophoresis on the PCR samples I ran this morning to figure out what the genotype of the mice upstairs are ... ahhh science

I am going...home after work, and maybe we will get to play with bubbles on the front porch ... if it's not too hot!

I am reading...The Paris Vendetta by Steve Barry

I am hoping...that I get this new job, that I can start losing weight, that I can remember everything I need to get done

I am hearing...The Dave Ramsey Show on WTN

Around the house...Audrey has started crawling and it is the cutest thing ever!

One of my favorite things...playing on the floor with my girls and hearing them both giggle

A few plans for the rest of the week: Well, nothing fun really this week, but this weekend is fun!  We have my company picnic this Friday and a meet and greet with church this Saturday

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...


Just because I feel like ... I wanna play a game!
6 Truths and 1 Lie
Rules -- I'm going to list 7 statements below ... 6 of them will be true, 1 is a lie and you get to guess which one is the lie.
  1. I have tendinitis in my wrists from playing handbells
  2. I broke my ankle as a child on Christmas Eve
  3. I work in an immunology lab even though I failed immunology in college
  4. I'm one of the few Southerners who don't like Sweet Tea or Coke
  5. We moved to Nashville because I got a job at Vanderbilt
  6. The diamond in my ring is my Mother-in-law's diamond from the ring my Father-in-law proposed with
  7. The year after I graduated, they removed my degree from Auburn
Number 6 is TRUE!  Our engagement was pretty sudden and quickly and at the time Andrew didn't have enough money to buy a ring.  His mom had her original diamond put into a necklace when his dad surprised her with a larger ring.  So he took the diamond from the necklace and placed it into a ring for me! One day when Andrew surprises me with a bigger ring (hint, hint) I hope to pass the diamond down along to our son ... or future son-in-law :-)

Which one is a lie?  #1, 3 or 5?



  1. Well, I picked the wrong one. My guess was 6. Good luck on the job! Hope you get it. We lived in B'ham for several years. In fact, 2 of my boys were born there! :)

  2. I used to do this. I am thinking of doing this on my Grace of God blog. I enjoyed reading yours

  3. Ugh, I failed the game! I picked 6, so my new guess is 3! Thanks for the blog plug, by the way! :) And if you do get back to B'ham we will carpool and diet together (if you're not offended by that - I've been trying to eat better!)

  4. okay, i think i passed out when you said gel electrophoresis on the PCR samples.

    i do hope you get that job at birmingham, so the girls can grow up closer to family...and take up lisa's offer, if you do. it'll be easier (and more fun) if you lose weight with a buddy :)

  5. Interesting game and I haven't come across this one. I enjoyed reading the list and that cartoon was perfect.
    Happy SITS Thursday!
