Finally some free time...

As I said last night, I've been so busy lately! But I woke up extra early today so I finally have some free time to make a real update.

We ended up going to the State Fair of Texas on Thursday and spent all day long there. It was apparently the 125th anniversary! The end of the night there was a parade followed by a really cool light and fireworks show! :) Jett had a blast. We went with my dad, my sister, and her 3 boys. My mom had to work overtime so she wasn't able to go but long ago she had requested off this coming Sunday and Monday for something else we normally do this weekend that got cancelled this year. So we're going back to the fair on Sunday with my mom! Well... at least I know Jett is. I think I'm a bit worn out from last time still. I'm going to see if I can't stay home and get some last minute things done around here before my trip... I'll be too busy on Monday because we're going to head back to Six Flags since my dad wasn't able to come with us last time. Yeah I know I've mentioned on and off over the past few months that I have an upcoming trip. It's a bit of a surprise for a lot of my friends so I've been very vague on the details. They don't even know its a trip, yet. lol. But none of them really read my blog regularly so I think the secret is still intact here. lol. I'll be staying with some friends of mine though and one of them happens to have a weightloss blog, too! As soon as I make it to her place and the secret is out, I'll be sure to take a few minutes to post a link to her blog so you guys can follow all her awesome journey, too! :) As for today... I've got to pick up a friend soon and help her dye her hair a bunch of funky colors and then later tonight we're driving up to Mansfield to be zombie's at some army base. lol. We'll be working at the Haunted House my dad's been helping with for the last few weeks now. We used to work the Haunts out at Six flags every October for the past 10 years, but they got rid of the scout's Haunts this year for some crazy reason.

In other news... I was just informed by Maddy (of the upcoming season of I Used To Be Fat!! First show airs on TUESDAY! Set your dvr people!) that she noticed the MTV's I Used To Be Fat community page on facebook had picked my story to feature on their wall! They were asking people to share their stories a few nights back so I shared mine and the person in charge of the page commented that she was like 'Wow!' when she read it, so I already felt good about that, lol. But then I see on Tuesday she actually made a new post sharing my blog with everyone on their page talking about "this story which astounded me yesterday." So no wonder I have a lot of new followers and crazy amount of pageviews lately! haha. Hello to any new friends I have out here in blog land!! Please leave me a comment and let me know something about you. If you have a blog I'd love to check it out, too! :)
