Bret's Site - THE Video

Hey Everyone! You need to go check out Bret's site. Look at his entry on July 28 entitled THE Video. It is hilarious!

Wedding Plan Update

So the wedding plans are going well. I've got quite a bit booked. So far we have the church, the reception hall, the organist, cake lady, person to do the invitations, my dress, the wedding party, the florist, videographer, and some small things. I'm trying to decide on a photographer now. It's really difficult because they are so expensive! Hopefully I can get it decided before school starts again. It's been fun so far!

Hello Bill & Marilyn!

Welcome to my blog! Not much going on today, just helping Mom clean the house. Hope you enjoy looking through my blog. I guess I should stop typing, so I can go help. Thanks again for the soup recipe. Have a good day!

Congratulations Ryan!

Such wonderful news!! Ryan got an excellent job in Lexington for this coming school year. It is a high school choral position at a performing arts school. The school is Lafayette High School. This is a pretty big job and he will be very busy this year, but I'm sure he will have fun. I'm so excited for him, but when he moves I will miss him so much!

Sight-Seeing in Germany

We had a great time in Germany. In Berlin we were able to do a lot of sight-seeing. This picture shows one of the remaining areas of the Berlin Wall in its original place. There is a fence around the wall to prevent people from breaking off chunks. We also were able to go to a concentration camp north of Berlin, called Sachsenhausen. This camp was more of a work camp than a death camp. It was really interesting to see.

I'm Home!!

YAY! I just got home from our trip. We were supposed to get in last night (Thursday night) at 9:00 pm, but our flight from Chicago to Louisville was cancelled due to weather. We got a hotel and spent the night in Chicago and left on a flight this morning (Friday) at 10:50 am. That's about all right now. I'm hungry, gotta go. Tata.

Day 2 in Berlin

We had a good, but tiring day today in Berlin. We went out and saw some neat things like the remaining bit of the Berlin Wall and also a museum called Topography of Terror (about the Holocaust stuff). It was pretty interesting. This city has a crazy history. We also saw the composer Felix Mendelssohn's grave and also the Singakademie where he went to school. It's pretty amazing! The only down thing is that I have a cold. UGH. It blows. (hehe)
Anyway, I'm tired and need to get to bed, so I can get better. Talk to you all soon. Gute Nacht.

Hello from Deutschland

Hello Eveyone! Yes again, I am in Germany. We just were in Wernigerode with the Cardinal Singers from UofL and competed in a choral competition. The group won in the Gospel category and got a gold rating in the Chamber Choir category. It was a lot of fun and we did well. We were well liked by the townspeople and the people involved in the competition.
Now we are in Berlin. We do not leave until Thursday, so we have a few days to sight-see. We did a little bit today.
Anyway, we are doing well and having fun.

Last night, Friday, was the best night I have had in a long time! Renee, Jennie, Christina, Leslie, Danny, Bret, and Ryan came over to my house. The reason was not a good one, (we were working on music to sing at Sam Day's funeral which was today), but the time spent together was wonderful. As you can see, aside from rehearsing, we returned to old habits, such as Jennie's amazing rocking trick above, and we talked about old stories. I absolutely love these people. Even though we don't get together as often as we should, it seems as if no time has passed since our last meeting and we pick up from where we left off. It's kinda sad to think that such a terrible thing brought us together, but then again, it brought us together and it is amazing to have wonderful friends like this who are so willing to be there when the going gets rough and you need them. I wish for everyone people like this in their lives.
