… Is it really July 20th? I’ve been a bad blogger! :(

Not that I haven’t been busy, I’ve been swamped! But that’s no excuse. I’m blessed to have family, friends, and a job that keeps me busy, and a computer to blog about it all with, so as the kids say “Leggo!” (I’m so friggin super cool! :) )

OK here’s a run down of what I’ve got to go over.

  • Today’s post is going to be about my crazy fun girl’s weekend in Providence with my girls from college.
  • Then my struggle to keep a work/life balance… and what I’m doing about it! 
  • Then how we Hales’ went house hunting only to discover we need new curtains 😛

So about Providence, it was great! There are about 7 of us in our little crew and we get together on average twice a year for mini-reunions. We drink wine, do girly stuff (pedicures, shopping, watch cooking shows, etc), eat out ALOT, and get all in each others business! It’s always a great time, and this weekend was no exception.

We chose Brown because our girl Bre has been there for the past 5 years studying pharmacology at Brown University. We’ve all been promising to come up there and visit, so last weekend we made good on our promise.

Welcome to Brown!

Friday we started off with a tour of the campus. Bre showed us her favorite lunch spot.

Meeting Street Cafe

There they sell cookies as big as your head! I brought one home for James. We did a little shopping at the Brown student store.

I got a "Brown" t-shirt. Get it?? Ha Ha!! :)

And we got to see some historical places around campus.

Me Hugging the "Brown" Bear. Looks like he's trying to hug back!

We even got to see Bre’s lab.

It's nice to have friends @ work! LOL!

And her poster!

Cam got it!

Bre’s trying really hard to graduate next spring.

She's Bustin Outta There!

And we’re pretty sure she’s gonna make it! :)

(To be continued…)

    Hey Bre…..from wikipedia:

    A basement is one or more floors of a building that are either completely or partially below the ground floor. Basements are typically used as a utility space for a building where such items as the furnace, water heater, breaker panel or fuse box, car park, and air-conditioning system are located; so also are amenities such as the electrical distribution system, and cable television distribution point.

    From your statement.. “it’s just that half of it is underground”…and wikipedia… ” either completely or partially below the ground floor”…….it seems you two agree that you actually work in a basement.

    Honey! Didn’t I tell you to place nice with Bre! And people who work in caves should not throw stones at people who work in underground basements!
