G is for gail the whale

60 delightful trips down memory lane

60 delightful trips down memory lane

This is what my awesome friend Gail sent me for Christmas.  You can’t get Utz Crab Chips in Florida and they are a special nostalgia treat for me.  She not only remembered but sent a box of 60 snack sized treats!  I’m going to list 5 reasons why Gail is awesome (besides her thoughtfulness):

 

1. Gail and I have been friends almost 18 years.  I can’t ever think of a time when Gail wasn’t part of my life.  Through some crazy storms, Gail’s been there for me.

2. Almost everyday since we began “grown-up” jobs, Gail and I discuss what we are having for lunch.  It’s just as important to my daily schedule as drinking my morning coffee.

3. We both share a sick obsession with the media.  I don’t mean we read the paper and check the internet, I mean we have insane crushes on news personalities and we’ve shared this since we were little. 

4. I know I already mentioned how thoughtful she is, but I really mean it.  Gail is always sending little notes or gifts.  Her gift is encouragement and she is awesome at it.

5. Back in the day Gail and I shared many traits, including our intense need for orthadontic intervention, our love of static spray (thanks to Miss Moss), and a wierd love affair with salad organizational containers.

YUMMY

YUMMY

You can tell Cooper is a Maryland boy at heart, even he loves the crab chip!

Dinner at Seaside

Dinner at Seaside

We were lucky enough to spend our 1st Anniversary at one of our fav. places: Seaside.  This place is perfect, to the point that the Truman show was filmed here.  We ate some great food (awesome queso), hit up the outlets and got some great steals, and lounged around on the beach.  Chris got to fish both mornings, although nothing was biting.  A nice little get away.  A huge  thank you to grandma and grandpa Geib for hanging out with little Coop while we were gone.  Coop was happy because he got to eat his weight in yogurt (one of his favs).

Here are the Halloween Pics as promised.  The camera was having issues, so it took a little longer then I had hoped for.  Cooper participated in multiple activities, some he loved, some he could have cared less.  The parade at school was his least fav. and he was the only one in his class who refused to walk the route, instead opting for mommy to carry him.  He liked trick-or-treating at the Red Cross.  He also loved playing around at Aunt Karen’s Halloween party.  We went to a few houses and then Coop spent the night handing out candy with daddy.  I don’t know if it was the candy (although he only had a few bites) or what, but he would NOT go to sleep.  I ended up coming home and he screamed until at least 2.  Too much fun for one day I guess.

I have an exciting announcement: I got a new job!  It was a bittersweet decision to leave the Red Cross, but my last day will be Friday.  I am going to be the Office Manager/Marketing person for a small architect firm called 4M Design.  Besides a raise in pay, I’ll be able to spend more time with Coop which has been something I’ve really been looking forward to. 

We are all still recovering from last night’s Halloween fun.  I’ll post the pictures later so you can see how AWESOME Cooper looked in his costume.

NOT the mouse in my kitchen!

NOT the mouse in my kitchen!

Just a quick update in between trying to breathe…  I saw a mouse in the kitchen tonight.  I hate mice.  I am scared of mice.  I want to move to a new house right now.  I’ll let you know when we find him, DEAD!
