Yes, my weekend festivities began on Thursday. There's a little bar about 2-3 miles from my house and Thursdays they have a cornhole league/tournament thing that my little brother, Brian and a few of his buddies participate in. So I went up with the guys and two of my best friends -Malone and Olivia -whom I grew up with. It was a great time! We played volleyball and listened to country music, and enjoyed a few cold ones (Lynchburg Lemonade), and even sang karaoke -Don't Take The Girl by Tim McGraw- the whole night was fun. Then again, I always have an awesome time when I'm with the Hawthorne crew. I forgot to take pictures...
I took it easy, and recovered from the night at Hambden Inn. I went over to my cousin Mo's house, and played with my little cousins -her kids, Tallon and Corbin- they're fun kids but typical energetic boys who just want to beat each other up. Mo and I chatted and got caught up in eachother's lives. The rest of the evening/night I watched TV -and since it's a Friday night you know I was watching Ghost Adventures, that show is so fake to me it's hilarious (sorry if you actually like the show.)
The ?? annual Lane Family Golf Outing. I'm not sure what number annually this is, since it started even before I was born -so it's at least 22, but more like 40ish I think. And guess what?! I actually took pictures! yahoo! The Lane Family Golf Outing is basically my dad's entire extended family -or at least those who golf- get together for one big outing. We do a scramble version so everyone breaks into teams of 4. This year I was with my almost sister-in-law, second cousin Corrine, and her boyfriend Scott. We

Caught up on sleep, and relaxed the whole day. That's all.
BUT I'd also like to mention that on Thursday I hit my 6 week post-op mark! Which means..... FOOD! Or at least more food choices. It's becoming easier and easier to chew, to open my mouth, to sleep, to talk, to brush my teeth, to live life like a normal human. The swelling is 99% GONE, and the numbness is decreasing faster than I thought it would. AND the most exciting thing about six weeks... is..... ready??? I FINALLY GOT TO EAT CHICKEN NUGGETS AGAIN! Okay, okay, so it doesn't seem like a big deal, but to a girl who loooves not only chicken nuggets, but any and all kinds of meat, it's a huuuge deal. No more being vegetarian here! yaayayaayayaya!! :)
Oh, and I just made a 90s station on Pandora.. so I'm really loving life right now! Remember O-Town "All or Nothing?" Yea. That just played. And S Club 7 -not only did I listen to their music but I even watched their TV show. I'm a 90s baby and I'm PROUD!
life is good
