Flyin' By

2007 has completely flown by for me.

Spring Semester = busy with work and school.

May = 2 1/2 glorious weeks in the UK and Ireland. Bliss.

June = Camping in Tennessee 2 weeks and 1 week in very hot Las Vegas

July = Managed to cram 2 classes in one month which equaled being a full-time worker and full-time student. Not so fun. 9th anniversary with my company. Turned 31!

August = Celebrated 8th wedding anniversary. Found out I am pregnant! Celebrated hubby and his twin's b-day. Celebrated my mom's and his mom's b-day. Announced pregnancy to the fam and friends. Started back to school this week.

So what does the fall semester hold?!?!

Growing up, I seemed to accumulate many nicknames. Most were derivatives of my name, but as you grow older, other names begin to morph. Some, not so flattering (the 8th grade Emu Legs moniker stands out). Others are terms of endearment. The nicknames waned off in college, and then I got married. Voila! More nicknames! Meeting people in the Blogosphere created new spinoffs. Co-workers bestowed new ones too, but somehow I've always had the nickname Smiley everywhere I've worked. Last week I was honored with a brand-new nickname. One that I wasn't sure I would ever have, but God had different plans. My new nickname?
