8 years ago

8 years ago today I met this hottie of a boy.
We met through a mutual friend Ryan Jackson
at a Bethel Baptist screening of Luther (movie)
yes, I know, LAME-O.
We ended up 4 of us going out for coffee/ice cream together
and talking until like 2am.
we then made plans to play racquetball that next day.
he of course was a boy and did not choose me to be on his team,
he chose ryan (to even things out he says).
but i thought he liked her not me.
we ended up hanging out as friends for a couple weeks,
then he asked me on a real date.
this pic is of our first date.
we played r-ball
then went to Coaches and played pool
and drank beer and ate cheese fries :)
(which is what we did on the night he proposed)..
of course I beat the crap out of him at pool
although he likes to say that he let me win.
all this to say,
8 years ago i met my best friend
and i love him so much
and am so thankful for God putting us together.

i'm famous

I haven't worked at Deaconess since July 2006
and my good friend Susanne still works there
she sent me this card in the mail.
apparently housekeeping puts one of these
in every room after it's clean :)
shouldn't I get royalties?
i have also heard from 2 other people they have "seen me"
around Deaconess... so maybe I am on posters and stuff.
can i make it to a billboard?
i might make people wreck and then really need to go to deaconess

we get ER residents working with our trauma team monthly... nothing new
so we try to be nice and talk to them...
we asked this fella where he grew up, and he said Ft. Worth for a few years.
I said... me too!!! wouldnt it be funny if we went to the same elem. school.
he asked where i went... thinking it wouldn't be a connection at all
i said "JT Stevens"
and he said "NO WAY, me too"
long story short... he was in sus's kindergarten class.
