Loving Life

Well, another week has passed.  I had a good time in Louisiana at Southern University.  I have to say that I do love the southern hospitality.  Everything is "yes ma-am, no ma-am."  I have to say it kind of catches me off guard.  Am I old enough to be called ma-am?  I took the students that were in the student program out to eat.  I loved it, it was bbq family style!  Afterwards, we went to this place called Coffee Call and had beignets.  Mmmm, good.

On Saturday, we had the opportunity to meet up with our friends, Don and Liz, at the Irish Festival.  It was at Military Park in Indy.  It was a lot of fun hanging out with them, like always.  We also had the opportunity to be with their beautiful daughters Anneleise and Emmeline.  

Chris and I have been in a bit of pain recently.  A tree fell in our yard and Chris was removing it from our yard earlier this week.  While he was doing this, I thought I would mow.  Well, everything seemed okay until about Wednesday.  Both of us starting itching like crazy.  Below is a picture of Chris and his allergic reaction to something he touched...

If you can't tell from the picture below, I have poison ivy again.  This time it is on my neck.  Somewhat uncomfortable, but it could be worse.  We ended up stopping at Med One in Kokomo to get a prescription for Chris.  I guess this means we can't be outside unless we are covered from head to toe.

Here we are trying on our back porch.  I am so excited for the fall!  We actually bought some apple cider at the store.  This is a sign that fall is almost here!  I am excited for the fall festivities.

On a sad note, I am not sure what is happening to my Colt's team.  I am still cheering them on loud and proud, just a hard loss today.  I think they need the bye this upcoming week to regroup and heal some of the injured players.  GO COLTS!
