Confession Friday

I don't remember the last time I did a confession Friday, but I figured I would try to get back in the swing of making new posts more often.

I confess I made a pot of chili today, and it turned out pretty good.

I confess, Joe and I get our engagement pictures taken next week and I can't wait.  I hope they turn out good.

I confess that I registers for my fall classes and I am looking forward to getting into my nursing classes.

I confess I am not really excited for fall, I wish summer could last just a little bit longer.

I confess the only good thing about winter coming is that it means it is getting closer to the wedding.

I confess, I love our new patio in our back yard.  It is going to be nice this fall with the fire pit.

I don't have many confessions, hope everyone has a good weekend.

NASCAR/Firefighters Ball

Things have been crazy busy around here.  Joe and I went to Bristol, TN to the NASCAR race at the end of August.  We had a great time.  We had to camp there because there are not hotels around.  The closest one we could find was an hour and a half away.  Since we camped we were in walking distance to the race.  Thursday night when we got down there we got to watch the Hauler Parade.  It was cool to see all the trucks come through with the race cars.  We tried some moon shine apple pie drink, it was good but I don't think I could drink a lot of it.  Friday we went to the Busch race and we sat right past the start finish line.  It rained a little bit on us, but we had a good time.  Saturday, we spent most of the day at the race track.  We went to the different vendors and got some souvenirs to take home.  We had a good time at the race and are planning on going to another race next year. 

This was our first year going to the Firefighters Ball, I didn't really know what to expect, but we had a great time.  I got really lucky and found my dress on clearance for $60 bucks.  We got to the hotel to check in and we get to the front desk and come to find out we are at the wrong hotel so we had to go back to the car and go across the street to the other hotel.  I was afraid we were going to be late, but I think I got dressed and put my makeup on in record time.  We got to the ball, ate some food, took lots of pictures, and drank a little to much.  I think cosmos became my favorite drink.  The dance was suppose to last till midnight, but I think we were back at the hotel by 11:30.  I had a little to much to drink, but Joe was there to take care of me.  Can't wait to go again next year.
