A New Look, A Moment of Silence, and Workin' for the Weekend

So, I gave my blog a facelift last night. I had decided that my life was filled with too much black and white. I do everything in black and white. So, I gave my blog some color.

On another note, I just wanted to take a moment and remember those lost in 9/11. I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when those planes it the towers. My prayers are with families still coping with this tragedy, even seven years later. It's not something you just get over. Praise God that he is in control of everything and praise him for all the heroes that put their lives on the line that day at the towers and on planes, and more recently in the war in the Middle East, so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we have here in America without being afraid.

On a happier note, I am workin' for the weekend. I've got a big weekend ahead of me and I'm so excited. It starts tomorrow as I head to Tuscaloosa to watch my girls (volleyball) play in the toughest tournament so far this year. They are 6-1 right now and had pretty much blasted everyone that they have played so far. This weekend is going to be tough because they are playing Alabama, Murray State and South Florida -- three of our toughest preseason opponents. I'm praying that they do extraordinary...and I know they will. They play twice Friday and once on Saturday. I'm so excited that their match is early on Saturday because that means I'm only an hour away from Starkville, so I get to make it to the Auburn game!

I'm way excited about this because 1) I get to see MY Bulldogs play at least once this year, 2) I get to see friends I haven't seen in a while, and 3) I'm meeting my mom after the game and driving her home so I get to see my Dad, my sister, bro-in-law and sweet William on Sunday. This is great because I am having to miss William's first birthday party on Halloween and I wasn't going to get to see my sister until Thanksgiving. It's tough living so far away from family and not being able to go home as much anymore. I'm so excited!

Then it's back to Birmingham for a week of prepping for our own volleyball tournament. Fun times!

Have a great day!
