I'm here!  I'm here!  Just boring... not bored, borING.

I have lots of things to say but no pics, so you will be bored.  And I'm only one that gets to be bored around here!

This just in.  Murray State SMOKED Colorado State.  What great sportsmanship though, huh?  Murray State is the total package.  I wish I could date them him it.  Also, in the news... Murray State plays Marquette tomorrow at 4:15, I think that's CST.  Good thing Isaiah Canaan is Irish.  And his dance of choice?  Not the jig... the post-season.  BOOM!  You like what I did there?  GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO RACERS!!

I totes dig this article.

My WBC count came back as stable.  YEAH!  Let's celebrate with gifts.

Lots going on this weekend... Buss and TReedy come to town!  I'm sooooOOOOoooo excited to see my soul sistas.  Granger and I start off the mornin' with a little 5 mile jog through STL.  It's the St. Pat's Day Parade 5-miler.  Hi-five!!  Then you can probably find us detouring around turn 4 for a green beer and a reuben.  I hope that's her plan.  I'll be wearing green if you need me.  Then, off to Dogtown to celebrate 1/4 of my heritage, and 100% of my hair and skin.  Then finish the day dancin' with my MSU peeps!  Sounds perf, huh? 

I'll have pictures after the weekend, fo sho.

Until then... I will leave you with this.
May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back.  May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rains fall soft upon your fields.  And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.

Happy Friday!

What's Up, Doc?

My annual physical was yesterday morning.

It's official, I have a heart murmur.  A physiologic murmur.  It's no big deal.  A murmur is just sounds produced by turbulent blood flow.  That's right, my blood flow is turbulent.  Here were my doc's exact words, "Breathe in.  Breathe out.  Lean forward and breathe in.  Hm, ok.  I hear a heart murmur.  It's not a big deal.  This is a physiologic murmur.  If anyone asks you if you have been told you have a murmur, say yes.  It's because you're so thin."  BINGO.  Because I'm so thin.  BEST.  MURMUR.  EVER!

Thanks, Doc!

I also have to get bloodwork done, seems my white blood cell count is low. 

Fear not.  Or send gifts, I don't care.

I also came across this...

SI- 2011 College Football Edition
I realize this isn't current (SELECTION SUNDAY THIS SUNDAY GO RACERS!) (Seemed like a perfect opportunity for a Murray State plug), but I want to know who approved this cover?  Did anyone else notice the "9" on #12's crotch?  Is that really necessary?

TGIF and Happy Weekend!

The first title to this post was "MARCH MADNESS", then I remembered it is WEDNESDAY!!  And I'm sure Timmy is waiting patiently for this.. hopefully wearing his MURRAY STATE T!  (I've got a new one for you, I should probably send it!)  Anywho, how many times have you heard "March Madness" in any type of tense?  Did that sentence make (Why didn't anyone tell me this sentence said "my sense"? Oh duh, I know.. because nobody reads this!) sense?  AH!  I RHYMED!  Seriously, I bet I'll say March Madness 26 times a day in the month of March, and probably into April, because I'll be like, "Remember March Madness, when..."

Back to OMGW...


Over the weekend, I was in Iowa to celebrate Grant's first birthday.  Holy moly, what a looker!  This kid is cute on Facebook, but in real life.  HELLLLLOOOOOOOOOOO NURSE!!  Is that weird?  He's 1.  And we're related.  I had such a nice weekend with lots of family!  I arrived late Friday night, Saturday we were up and at 'em for Water Babies!  Grant was only dunked twice.  He loved it.  Seriously, this kid is going to be all sorts of athlete, I've got to figure out how to buy stock in him.  He's public property, right?  After Water Babies, we met John, Adrian, Jenny, Hayley, Brenna, Noah, Uncle Doug, and Aunt Karen for lunch at Tasty Tacos.  OMG.  This place is the  It's Bud's favorite.  I've been to Des Moines, IA like 256,809 times, and I've eaten at Tasty Tacos 256,801 times.  I recommend making the drive for these babies.
Original flour tacos
There is no where in Missouri like this, and no where in Missouri has these.  SO GOOD.  I think I'm going back this weekend for more. 

We were able to catch the OVC Championship game Saturday afternoon, and the RACERS are CHAMPS again!  This Sunday is SELECTION SUNDAY.  I'm interested to see how we fair!  And I know you are too!

The birthday party was fabulous!  Katie is a pro!  She ordered Pizza Hut, and Aunt Karen made a salad.  The theme was GOODNIGHT MOON (Do you remember the book?).  It's Grant's favorite!  The cake was Goodnight Moon, the balloons, the plates, napkins, cups, party hats!  After dinner and during the Iowa State game (The Cyclones beat Baylor!!) Grant Jeff opened presents.  Grant wasn't too interested, but I'm certain he has probably enjoyed them to the max since!  This kid loves Mickey's Clubhouse.  Specifically, Mickey.  I wish everyone could see this (DAMN!  Why didn't I video!!!).  He loves the hot dog song, too.  He usually just watches contently until he sees Mickey and then he gets hype!  So cute!  Sunday we had breakfast at the Cozy Cafe and after, I was on my way home!

I was able to see Em, Nick, Tab, Nat, Mike, Aunt Pam, and Uncle Bob, too!!  So lucky!

Happy Birthday, Grant!
Happy Wednesday!
