Drumroll, please!

I know you've all been desperately waiting to hear about the Reba/Kelly concert, don't lie!! Well, I must say it was absolutely amazing! Definitely the best concert ever!!

And I wasn't the only one who thought so. I kept hearing these quotes all night: "way good" and "freaking awesome"! You know those weren't my quotes because of the grammatical errors, but don't worry, girls, I'm not naming any names! :)



Everyone seems to be talking about change these days.....so I decided to change the look of my blog. Don't know if I like it yet. I might change it again tomorrow - just because I can!!


Happy Birthday...

To my dear, sweet cousin Jill!! Amazing mother of four beautiful children and an incredible dedicated wife to the hardest working husband around!! Love you, Jill! Hope you have a fabulous day!!


Girls Weekend!

This past weekend was our 8th annual Ballard Girls Weekend! We've been to St. Cloud twice, Grand Forks twice, Fargo and Bemidji, but for the second year in a row we rented a townhome on Gull Lake up near Brainerd, MN! It's so much fun. There were 13 of us this year and it's nice to all be able to stay in the same house!

The rule is that you can't come to Girls Weekend until you're a senior. So this was Katelyn's rookie year. She's petitioned to come the last couple years after hearing how much fun we had, but the "board" reviewed her application and sent her a rejection letter. Another first this year is that we had t-shirts made. Eight years and we finally thought of t-shirts!!

We played board games, ate a TON of food, watched a movie, went shopping, relaxed, had a bonfire, and of course ate some more. It was a great weekend and fun to catch up with all my aunts and cousins! Can't wait till Ballard Girls Weekend 2009!
