We are the Aggies...

I was so delighted to take a trip this past weekend with my best friends and roomates from Texas A&M... Tracy and Ashley. You girls are awesome and it was so fun to return to Aggieland and view the changes and all the wonderful things that we loved while we attended school there. I can't post all the pictures now, but here are some great groups shots :)

This is a reenactment picture from our sophomore year (see the original below)

The pretty academic building

At the game- we won! Whoop!

And the two new statues of the Aggie ring... very impressive and very massive

It was fun! I'll have the full details in the next post! Enjoy the week everyone!

The Finale...

The Minute to Win It Finale was performed last Wednesday night... the contestants consisted of all the winners of the win-off games throughout the summer. These games had to be some of my favorite... especially the last one :)

Finale Game 1: divided the contestants into two groups... Contestants used straws to grab M&M's and carry them (by continuously sucking into the straw) to a small cup. Must have three to move on to the next round.

Finale Game 2: the 4 winning contestants must propel a balloon across the yard with only a water spray bottle. If your balloon pops, you are out. Last two standing move on to the ultimate finale.

Ultimate Finale Game 3: Contestants must bounce a ping pong ball off the counter and onto a slice of bread with peanut butter on it. It must stick to win.

I'm sad these games are over, but they were alot of fun. I hope you enjoyed them as well!

I'm so excited about alot of things coming up...trips with friends, fun times with Robert, and some awesome books that I'm reading :)

Stay tuned!

A Minute to Win It Summer

So I haven't posted these in a long time, but we have completed many other Minute to Win it are a few of the favorites from the remainder of the summer:

Candelier: Contestant must use plastic cups and paper plates to create an upside down chandelier. We didn't have flat plates so instead we did our tower from 1 to 3 than back to 1... you'll see.

On the Nose: Contestants must use petroleum jelly on their nose to transfer a cotton ball to a plate without it dropping.

Junk in the Trunk: Contestants must bounce out 6 ping pong balls placed in a kleenex box tied around their waste.
(A few things about this one: first watch in the right bottom corner for Jo, good technique, then in the top right corner for Robert who is laughing at Jo... oh and listen for the laugh)

Chocolate Unicorn: Using chocolate ding dongs, make a stack of them on your forehead 5 high. Must stay for 3 seconds to win... this only works if you have a flat forehead :)

Speed Eraser: Contestants must bounce a pencil on its eraser end into a cup. Obviously the winner was very good at bouncing pencils...

Hope you enjoyed them. Next post will be the games from the Ultimate Finale of all the winners which occurred tonight. Great stuff!

Have a blessed week everyone! Glad its a short one thanks to Labor Day!

Looking forward...

I am posting this video because I just remembered it and it does kind of make me laugh at 9:45 on a Wednesday night. So, for you all to enjoy...its the Wave slide at Rock the Desert. Lalo and I are racing. It was hot remind you. really hot! Wait till the end and watch me on the right at the bottom.

Yes, my skin got stuck to the slide thing and so I had no choice but to tumble down to the finish line. Lalo, you won, hands down.

So, with all the busy-ness settling in (and I do mean good busy-ness) the fall for sure is looking promising! And I'm almost done with some more of my summer goals. Yes it is now September, and thus no longer summer, but I'm just about complete with the last of the goals including finishing a Frank Peretti book. Sadly, the goals that didn't make it include riding bikes or learning 10 new spanish phrases (I got about 6 new ones though). Well maybe I'll do them in the fall :)

I can't wait for some exciting things coming up:
-this weekend, NazNite at Six Flags with the teens!
-in 3 weekends, roomate reunion in College Station at the football game!
-October, my birthday :)
-Plus some exciting things at work and with Robert in the works :)

Stay tuned!
