Totally addicted...

Here's a few things that I've recently become addicted to over the past few weeks...

~TWILIGHT~ So, I recently began reading the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer and I'm totally addicted. I was staying up too late reading, which was making me super tired at school. If you like fantasy and don't mind vampires (no gore), I HIGHLY recommend reading of Bella and Edward's love affair...sigh

~BONES~ Totally addicted to the show and have recently begun reading the books by Kathy Reichs (the creator of Bones).

~Dave Ramsey~ I'm not quite as addicted to him as hubby... but am enjoying listening to him and even checked out his blog and website today (on my own with NO prodding from hubby).

~Swimming~ I'm not very good at breathing correctly swimming the freestyle stroke, BUT I am bound and determined to get it right. I'm enjoying the stroke clinic that LEW and I decided to take together. I am NOT enjoying the chlorine. Any advice out there?

a plug

Chris and I are taking the Financial Peace University by Dave Ramsey. We are working on budgeting and what not. We found this cool website (through Dave Ramsey), that helps you plan meals for 5 nights and helps you with a grocery list. The idea is to make life easier and help you with your grocery shopping. I don't know about most of you, but we end up spending so much every week and it's just the two of us. I think it's going to be beneficial for us, especially once we have kids to feed. There's a link to the left for it and here's another one... Check it out!

This past weekend, Chris and I traveled to Nashville for the Music City Tri. We drove up Friday night so that we could enjoy the city a little bit. Saturday, we had a few errands to run (so we did that first). Then, we went to eat lunch at the Opryland Hotel... Chris had never been there and I'm always just in awe of it (and completely bummed that I didn't have my camera!). It's very cool and you should check it out, if you're ever in Nashville. UGA had a 3:30 kickoff, so we decided to go watch the game at the UGA Alumni bar in Nashvillle. It was fun to watch it with a bunch of other Bulldog fans. After the game was dinner and then an early bedtime because we had to get up early for the triathlon on Sunday am. If you know anything about Nashville, it was held at Nashville Shores. Anyway on Sunday, Nashville started feeling some effects from IKE (mainly WIND and some rain around lunch). It was so windy that the water was too choppy for swimming. They did start people swimming (which you will see from the pictures), but quickly called it once they started to lose buoys, and the kayaks were having a hard time staying upright. (There are always kayaks, boats and sometimes jet skis out in the water in case someone needs help). I was very thankful they called the swimming, especially after watching the collegiates start swimming (and it looked like they weren't moving). Now, one thing I didn't mention was how miserable I was... something I ate didn't sit right in my stomach so I was up and down all night with a stomach ache. I was tired, had a stomach ache AND was actually kinda cold from the crazy wind. Needless to say, I didn't get as many pictures as I normally do.

There's a gigantic spider on our deck. I don't do spiders very well... but took pictures of it to show my friend Patty, at school. So, I thought I would share with you!
