Busy as a Bee...


This has been such a busy week, hence the title and above picture. :) My good friends Ashley & Andrew are expecting their first little one. Since they don't know the sex yet Ashley & I have affectionately been referring to the baby as the "little gummy bear" because that's really what it looks like in the ultrasound pic. I went looking at nursery furniture with Ashley and there are so many cute options; I'm excited to see what they choose!
This week I was elected to serve as President of the ZTA Jackson Alumnae Chapter. I'll be working with a fabulous group of ladies on the EC. I'm sure my new position will be challenging at times and a lot of work but I'm stoked to have been given the opportunity to further my service to the fraternity!


Friday I participated as a "celebrity" waitress at the Breakfast for Babies fundraiser benefiting the March of Dimes. Their mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. I always have such a fun time at this event and I'm happy to say no coffee was spilled and no patrons were injured. If you'd like to make a donation please visit http://www.marchofdimes.com/ and click "Donate Now".

Finally, Saturday I went to Murfreesboro to take my sister out for her birthday. Even though she's my older sister; I am still taller than her. It was good to get a chance to visit since we don't get to see each other as often as we'd like.

Wow...What a Week!

This has definitely been an eventful week...After looking off and on for the past year I finally decided to retire "Swamp Thing" (aka Mazda Tribute) and get a new car! I now drive a shiny Red 2010 Ford Edge Limited. It's really different having a car with so many options, but a welcomed change :) All I need to do now is pick a name...any suggestions!

Also in the past week 3 people have told me their eggo is preggo!!! The baby "bug" is making its rounds...my fall calendar will be full of baby showers and I'm so excited for them all!

Bill and I dressed in our "Sunday's Best" for Easter 2010

25 Random Things About Me...

25. I am one of the few people that actually likes winter...I prefer the cold and I love bulky sweaters, drinking hot chocolate or apple cider.
24. I hate spiders and can cripple with fear when I see one; there are fewer spiders in the winter :)
23. I have been drinking coffee pretty much every morning since the 4th Grade.
22. My first date with my hubby Bill was a blind date...they sometimes do turn out well!
21. I love to sing but can't carry a tune and I love to dance but have no rhythm!
20. I've always thought my name (Lynda Beth) was dull and boring. I've wanted to change it to something more interesting...suggestions???
19. I am walking allergy, and sometimes randomly break out in hives.
18. I love to "primp" and get dressed up but also love to ride 4 wheelers in the mud and get disgustingly dirty!!!
17. On long road trips, I'll sing Disney tunes at the top of my lungs...refer to note 21 :)
16. When I was 19 I moved to Martin, 3 1/2 hours from my hometown to attend UTM. I didn't know a single person and I was scared to death. It was the best move of my life...had a great collegiate experience, met some of the best friends of my life...left Martin with a degree and a husband!
15. I lOVE ALL THINGS ZTA!!!
14. As confident as I sometimes appear; I'm actually really insecure about alot of things. And as outspoken as I can be when you know me, I can be rather shy and nervous when meeting new people.
13. The house I'm living in now is the longest place I've lived in a single location since I was 18. I normally get antsy every year but I love my home now and will stay put for awhile.
12. I can't stand someone that is unreliable or constantly makes excuses for things - "say what you mean and do what you say"
11. I have interviewed the past 6 Miss Tennessee title holders
10. I am terrified of flying and cry every time I have to get on a plane :(
9. For years I was told I only had 3 wisdom teeth...then when I went to have them removed there were only 2...still can't figure out where that other one went...
8. I hate to cry in front of other people for two reasons: 1. it's a sign of weakness 2. I look extremely ugly when I cry (get all blotchy and my nose turns red like Rudolph)
7. I love dogs but not cats (allergic - hence Note #19) if I saw a dog and a person on the side of the road I'm more likely to help the dog first.
6. I have always thought I was destined to be interviewed by Oprah - there HAS to be a reason for this craziness that's called life.
5. I hate to drive, especially at night. If I could afford one, I'd have a chauffeur take me everywhere, until then Bill will do. :)
4. I love to eat!!! From sushi to spaghetti...I can be quite the hoss! Probably why I am always trying to loose weight.
3. I don't have any children but I do have the most ADORABLE nephew, Jack.
2. My grandmother "Sweetie" was one of the most amazing people I ever knew. She passed away nearly 6 years ago and I still miss and think about her almost every day.
1. In May, I'll be married 7 years to Bill...
"Looks like we made it...look how far we've come my baby" (refer to Note # 21)
