So, after spending the weekend on the topic of "Making Love Work", I am trying to incorporate some of what I learned into my every day life. Of course, a part of that is recognizing a guy's number one need - SEX! Hence, trying to get in the Passionate mood ;) At least I am also recognizing that he is working on the woman's number one need - AFFECTION!
To help me on that note, I have a weekend full of Passion parties this weekend - which is great! I am feeling a little rusty because I haven't done a party since August, but I am excited about getting back in the groove. I even have parties booked for the next two weekends as well! Nothing like Valentine's Day around the corner to motivate people :)

I know it seems silly to ramble on a blog in which who knows who is reading, but there is something to be said for being able to express yourself through writing. I don't consider myself a very creative person - one who can write for entertainment and to make people laugh, or to analyze random things - I enjoy reading those type things, but when it comes down to my writing, it always seems to be about feelings. Maybe I should have pursued my minor in Psychology instead of my major in Business?

Ok, to each his/her own, but how do these guys in "drag" hide their "junk"? This was one of entertainment factors at the Inferno last weekend. This guy and his girlfriend in blue did things to this pole that I couldn't even dream of doing - and all in those high heels!! It kind of made me want to take a pole dancing class - talk about getting yourself in shape!!

Friday was Sarah's 27th birthday, so of course I had to go out to help celebrate at INFERNO. It was a lot of fun, and I got to do what I do best - "People Watch!" - and let me tell you, there was a lot to see :) I had never been, so it was nice to do something different, while helping a good friend celebrate! The birthday girl is on the right, trying out the "stripper pole" along with our friend, Rachel. (More stories on the pole in a later post!) We danced and had a lot of fun!!
After finally making it to bed at 3am, I slept for a few hours before showering and heading off again (hence....rinse, recycle, repeat!). After scrap booking for a few more hours Saturday morning, I headed to a baby shower for one of my college roommates, Kristi. Even though it isn't a great pic of her, it really shows how big her belly has gotten!! She is so cute pregnant, but I know she is tired and miserable, so glad her due date is only 3 weeks away. I can't wait to meet "Baby Keener"!After the baby shower, I headed home for another wardrobe change and to grab Brandon, and then it was off to Grandover to pick up our niece and nephew. Brandon's brother, Derek had a Snap-On tool conference and dinner, so we let Jana and he enjoy the evening, and we took care of the kids. After a quick dinner at Elizabeth's Pizza (in which we were only successful in getting them each to eat half a slice of pizza - why is it that kids hate to eat!) we went to the Monster Truck race at Greensboro Coliseum. Brandon went as a kid and thought they would enjoy it - it was however, my first experience! They took a little while to warm up to it, but they ended up having a great time, especially when the Dirt Bikes came out - they seemed to like those better than the Monster Trucks. Here are a few cute pics!
After the race, we battled the crowds, did a quick run-through at McDonalds (the half a slice of pizza didn't last long!) and took them back to the hotel. We hung out for a little while and talked with Derek & Jana while the kids wound down, and then headed home. We pulled in the driveway at midnight, to find the new neighbors next door were having a party. After being in our house for 4 years, this was the first time we had to put the TV on in our bedroom so that we could go to sleep over the noise next door. I hope this doesn't become a regular occurrence!

By the way, if you are looking for a good time to grocery shop, I suggest 7:30am on a Saturday morning. There was no one there! I am usually not this crazy, but I needed to get the beef stew cooking so that I could actually serve it at a decent hour tonight!
Rachel and Ken are coming over tonight for dinner. Instead of going out and spending all kinds of useless money, I thought it would be nice to have a dinner night in. Figured we can really be old farts, and play a game or something after dinner ;) I am such a home body now!! Just hope Chelsi will not drive us nuts with her barking and wanting to french kiss everyone all night!

We are having a lazy weekend/holiday, but enjoying it all the same. Brandon worked yesterday, but I took the day off. I checked in with work via the laptop in the morning, had lunch with my friend Sarah, and then just relaxed. I had things I hoped to accomplish on my day off, but didn't get a one of them done - oh well. We headed to our friends' Kyle & Kristen's house last night to celebrate New Year's. We just hung around and talked, and ate all kinds of yummy dips and munchies. We headed home about 11:15, because I didn't want to be on the road with drunk drivers, and walked in the door about 11:57, just in time to turn on the TV and see the ball drop, have our New Year's kiss, and then went to bed. I know, we are so exciting, aren't we!?!? Brandon actually wasn't feeling that well, so the casual evening was good. And this morning we slept in, watched the parade and now it is football time. We are both still in our PJ's and enjoying the lazy day at home. Maybe we will even wake up to some snow in the morning :)
Happy New Year!!
