Michael. Yes, Michael Buble!

I am going to see Michael Buble November 30th at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C.!! Yayy I am so excited. I am going to take my dear mother! We are very very excited. I think we have pretty good seats too! I tried winning tickets on the radio three time but I guess some other lucky girl won them instead! That's okay! Jordan told me even if I didn't win I could still buy tickets, as long as he didn't have to go. haha just kidding. He didn't say that but I think he was thinking that. :) jk ;)

I cant wait til November 30th!!

Chicago, lost in D.C. and Tow Trucks

Jordan went to Chicago this past weekend for work. He worked all day Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. On Sunday a co-worker and his family that is up in Chicago took him out to see the city. Here are some of the things he saw. He only took a few pictures.

I had to drop Jordan off at the airport really early on Thursday morning because I had to be at work at 5:45am. We get to the airport in plenty of time for me to get to work. We say our goodbyes and I am off to work. So I am driving on the Dullas Toll Road and I am not seeing any signs for 495 North. I call Jordan and I'm like "Hey do you know what exit I am suppose to take?" Hes all no but I'm sure 495 North will come up eventually. At this point its like 5:30am so I am still in good shape. So I keep driving. I call back ten minutes later, "Jordan I am seeing signs for the pentagon, and down town D.C." "Mary, you have gone way to far" Oh crap this is bad. So I get off at the Pentagon/Crystal City exit. No idea where I am, and I need to be at work in 5 minutes. I am freaking out on the phone telling him I have no idea where I am. Long story short I finally found my way back up to 495 and I get to work 25 minutes late...Awesome.

I drove down to Virginia Beach that afternoon to see my sister and her family. I didn't want to stay by myself while Jordan was gone because I didn't have to work on Friday. A nice trip to VA beach would be fun. I get there around 6:15pm and we had a good night hanging out. 7:30am the next morning Carole Ann rips the covers off of me and asks "Where did you park your car??" "In the visitor parking like you told me..." I said. " Its not there!" Oh great, really! All day Friday we are trying to get my car back from the towing company without having to pay. They towed my car in the visitor parking with a visitor pass. It clearly was a mistake. Well Carole Ann's apartment company had given her the wrong visitor parking pass. We were on the phone all day with the property managers to have them pay for their didn't really work. 8:00pm that night we went and got our car. Payed our of our pocket. My sister and her husband will be deducting $125 from their rent due to the lack of help we were able to get from the management company!

Wow what a weekend!!! There were many more events that took place but I will spare you.

I still had a great time with my sisters family. It was a lot of fun and I didn't have to work!

Hopefully this weekend will be eventful too!!!!

Labor Day Weekend

Don't you just love 3 day weekends! I sure do! We celebrated Jordan's little sisters Birthday this weekend. Today is her real birthday but all weekend we celebrated! It was a lot of fun!

Friday night we went down to D.C. to a comedy show. We had never been to one before. Julie wanted to do something different for her 21st birthday, so Jordan suggested a comedy show. We went to see Loni Love. She is hilarious. I laughed so hard! There were some stuff that I felt bad because I thought it was funny but it was a bit inappropriate but hey sometimes that stuff is just funny! She is a bigger lady so she made a lot of jokes about food and how she loves all kinds of people because of the great food they make. So that was Friday night.

Saturday was a great day. After we got our cable and Internet hooked up Ashley, Julie and I went out shopping at Tyson's Corner. Tyson's has become my spot. We live just down the road from the mall so I feel like every weekend I go there. I usually don't buy anything but this time I splurged. I think I bought all of Macy's. It was great. Ashley kept picking out the cutest outfits and telling me to try them on. Then I ended up buying all of them! It was fun though I needed some cute fall clothes! After shopping all day we went over to Ashley's apartment for dinner and games!

Today, Monday we hung out with the whole Packham Clan! We went to Cheesecake Factory for Julies Birthday Lunch! I love Cheesecake Factory. I got a yummy veggie sandwich! And the Red Velvet Cheese Cake! We all got different kinds of cheesecake! I feel like I should never eat again! haha you know that feeling! Its like everyday for me...ya know my life story of overeating!

We had a great weekend! Now back to work tomorrow and life again! I live for the weekends! So much fun! I only have to work three days this week! I am super excited! I have Friday off and I am going to go down to Virginia Beach to visit my oldest sister Carole Ann her husband Jon, and her baby Jonathan!! I am super excited. Jordan is leaving for Chicago on Thursday for work and he wont be home until Monday morning! I wanted to go with him but we decided that I would probably get in the way since he is going for work and all I would want to do is play! I didn't want to be home by myself so I'm taking off to see the sister!

Happy Labor Day Everyone!!!

And Happy 21st Birthday Julie!

Family Photo's

Here's the whole fam bam together again!
We had a great time down in Virgina Beach with everyone! We took these pictures because who knows when we will all be together again with a photographer. We were suppose to take pictures on the beach this year but it poured rain the day we were suppose to take them. Plan B was Carole Ann's house! It worked just fine.

Look at Jonathan's cute smile!!

The girl taking the pictures took a few of Jordan and me cause it was our two year Anniversary that day! They are really casual but I like them. We haven't had a good picture taken together since our wedding day!

So everything is going well with us! We are really excited for the holiday weekend! I love long weekends when I don't have to work! I have a three day week next week because Monday is a holiday and I took Friday off! Jordan is going to Chicago for a business trip so I am going to head down to Virgina Beach again to visit Carole Ann, Jon, and baby Jonathan again!! I'm excited! Jonathan is crawling now! Its so cute!
Here is some exciting news, we are getting Internet at our apartment on Saturday! Yayy finally we don't have to borrow anyone's anymore and barely get a connection!
I can't believe it's already Fall again! But you know what that means! GLEE and all the great shows are going to come back on! I am super excited! Hopefully my work schedule won't interferer with that too much! This year has just flown by! Next thing we know it will be the new year!
