Lake Fest 07

Tonight, Mom and I went to part of the Lake Fest. It was such a beautiful evening outside!!! The weather was perfect! We walked around, took pictures, and sat for a little bit before the fireworks started. We had a perfect view of the fireworks!! Right where you could see the reflections on the water. It was awesome!


I absolutely love sunsets...and sunrises!! I was driving home the other day and the sky was just beautiful!! This picture just does not do it justice. It was absolutely beautiful!

New Orleans!!!

This past weekend I went to New Orleans (June 8-12) for a Girls Trip. We had SOO much fun!!! We had Lori and Hannah from New Orleans, Melodie from Arkansas, Jennifer from Tennessee, and Sarah and Heather from Maryland, and of course Me from KC. Alot of people down there asked us how we knew each other since we were from all over the US. Most of us used to hang out together and then everyone scattered all over! So, we all got together for a girls weekend and we had a blast!!! Friday night we hung out and ate homemade gumbo and New Orleans Style bread pudding and potatoe salad. And we had spinach dip for the appetizer. Then Saturday we drove around and saw the damage from Hurricane Katrina then went downtown and French Quarters, etc. Sunday we went to church and then hung out and ate some more. lol Monday, Mel and I drove to Gulf Shores, AL...and got burnt! lol It was worth it tho! Then Tuesday we drove back home! I miss these girls soo much and can't wait to see them all again. I love you girls!

Hurricane Katrina Damage

This past weekend I was in New Orleans and was able to go see alot of the damage from Hurricane Katrina. It was really neat to be able to see it but it was sooo sad. We also went to the Ninth Ward where most of the damage took place. They marked every house with an X and each X had a number on it of how many people they found dead in that house. So Sad! There was neighborhood after neighborhood that was completely empty. There were houses occasionally that was starting to get fixed up but most of them had windows busted out and doors were just swung open. There are still so many people who haven't gotten the money yet to fix their home. But at the same time, there are many that won't be returning. They said that the hurricane itself wasn't that bad, but it was when the levy's broke that caused most of the damage.

Carnival Night

So Friday night, I just thought I was going home! lol Michelle called me and wanted to know if I would go to the Carnival with her. So I decided to go and am soo glad I did-we had SO much fun! We walked around for awhile and ate dinner at this yummy Mexican place (at the carnival) then met up with the other girls. We were all sitting there talking when Venita noticed this couple across from us at a picnic table. They had both sat down at the same time on the same side of the picnic table and they both fell backwards!!!! LOL It was sooo funny!! They were both laughing histerically! I wish I would have had a video camera! After we all ate we decided to go on a ride. It was soo funny! It was the only one we could go on with out being spun to death and getting sick! lol After that Michelle had a few extra tickets left so we were going to ride the ferris wheel! haha Right before we were stepping up to the ride it started POURING down rain!!! It was insane! All 5 of us were tring to get under ONE umbrella!! haha But we soon gave up considering that we were DRENCHED already! lol We still had to walk to the car (about a mile). haha But it was worth not being able to see while we were walking. haha We had alot of fun together! Enjoy the pics!
