fresh friday

Sorry for missing last week.  I taught 5 classes last Friday and writing on the blog just did not happen.

I have had yet another busy week, but the end is in sight!!  I am finishing off the 10th week of the semester today which means I am 2/3 of the way through!  

And what is even more exciting, as Olivia reminded me yesterday, is that Thanksgiving is in less than a month and Christmas is in 2 months!

And then speaking of holidays, yesterday was my husband's 29th birthday!


We went out for dinner and Devin got an apple pie.  Tomorrow I am going to make him a special birthday dinner and some chocolate chip cookies.

Just another busy week ahead, but MY DAD IS COMING TO VISIT!!  He is going to stay for a few days and help us with some projects around the house.  Bridget, you will be missed, but hopefully you can make it down soon!

Well, have a great weekend!
So Long!

fresh friday

Well hello.

How have you been?

I have never been busier in my life.

I do not understand how it is possible to be this busy.  I could never stop working and still have stuff to do.  However, I am so happy to be a Professor.  As busy as I am, I really love what I am doing.

Rebecca was in Lewisburg last week and we started working on a paper and moving forward with some other research.  I am so happy and lucky that she came.  It gave my scholarship a good kick start and it was just really great to have her here!

My in-laws were also here over the weekend and it was amazing to see them! 

This week I have just been trying to catch up with things.  I gave an exam yesterday, which means that I have 50 exams to grade this weekend, along with 25 labs and 20 quizzes.

Before I forget, I made these pumpkin cookies and they were amazing.  The salted caramel sauce is b.a.n.a.n.a.s.  Make them.  And then you also have about 1.5 cups of salted caramel sauce leftover to put on vanilla ice cream, or bananas.

Here are some pictures from the week:

The moon was out yesterday morning as I walked into school.

At least I have a beautiful view of fall from my office.

Sharon brought me this, fresh out of Brian's oven last Friday.
That was a tgif moment!

Missing Olivia like crazy....Thanksgiving!

Have a good weekend.

So Long!

fresh friday

Just a quick post, because I feel bad if I ignore all my internet friends.

I have an extremely busy weekend ahead.  One of my thesis advisors is here and we are going to spend the weekend writing a paper and starting to move forward with some other research.

My in-laws are also coming in tomorrow, so hopefully I will get to spend a little time with them as well.  I am excited for them to see the house!

I hope you all have a nice long weekend that is less busy than mine!

So Long!
