Since most of my time this year has been spent 4 hours away from home, the year has been pretty uneventful. Matt and I have both been busy working. Matt is pursuing his MBA with a concentration in health care management, so he is staying busy while I am away. I have gotten the chance to see some of my South LA friends and relatives more than usual since being down here. I did get to attend Mardi Gras in Houma with my family this year.

Matt and I went on a trip to Savannah and Charleston with his parents over the summer. I got to go to Alpha Chi Omega National Convention in St.Louis since I am still helping advise the chapter at LA Tech. These trips will of course get their own posts. We celebrated 3 big birthdays in our family this year. Matt's mom turned 60 this year and she wanted to celebrate in a way that all the kiddos would enjoy, so we took a quick weekend trip to Six Flags. My oldest sister Shasta turned 40. We also celebrated Maw Maw's 82nd birthday with a surprise party. When you get to be her age every birthday is a big one!

Wow...now we are caught up except for a few big trips and events.
