So, it's been cold around here...

How cold, you ask? This cold, according to my van's thermometer on the drive to work Friday morning....

Hey, it's a Giveaway!

I've been finding a bunch of new blogs to check out thanks to Twitter. What's better than inexpensive dinner ideas PLUS a giveaway for a Designer Lunch Tote? Thanks to Erin at $5 Dinners for the giveaway opportunity and a fun blog!

PS: Even better, these totes have a recycled canvas exterior, are insulated and come in some great colors. Yes, I want the pink one, of course!

I'm entered, are you?

It's Friday!

I'm doing my very best to waste time in anticipation of Kentucky's third bowl game in three years this afternoon! Yes, I know that just about everyone and their brother is picking ECU to win. I don't care, because UK is playing!!! GO BIG BLUE!

While I'm on this 3/3 kick...the rollercoaster that is the Columbus Blue Jackets have won three of their past three games with the last two being Steve Mason shutouts. Mason ended 2008--and is leading the NHL--with a 1.69 GAA, .938 save percentage, and FIVE shutouts!!! He's 19th in wins (12-7-1) too. Tonight is the Colorado Avalanche, who just happen to be one point ahead of us in the standings, sitting at #8 in the West. If the Jackets win tonight, well, I refuse to invoke any hockey gods out there by actually typing out the thought...but it would be a great way to start 2009!!!

On the College Acceptance front, we're up to 4 of 6 acceptances with Toledo being the most recent addition. All that's left are Michigan and Vanderbilt, and financial aid, and scholarship offers. Then we get to repeat the process this spring with DS#2!
