For the first time in a gazillion years (ok, so maybe just over a year), Kevin and I got  a weekend to ourselves. We drove up to Columbus, Ohio for Kevin to spend the weekend checking out OSU and their MBA program. 
My parents met us in Columbus and took Annalise for the weekend to play with Grandma and Grandpa near Cincinnati. Yay!

Although I spent most of my time by myself, it was still quite the adventure. Especially when the power went out on Friday night and didn't come back on until Saturday morning. So besides hanging out in the dark I also got to go walking around the city and I can tell you one thing I discovered, Columbus is not Philly. It was so strange walking around a city where everything closes at 5 and the streets are empty. How weird. (This would definitely take some getting used to if we moved here.)

Well all in all it was a very nice weekend (despite the freezing rain and snow.) I got to sleep in for the first time in a long time, and I also got to sit and relax in hotel that I didn't have to worry about doing the dishes or vacuuming the floor or picking up toys. How great is that. Kevin also enjoyed himself, especially learning about the MBA program their. He said the only thing they did not sell him on was the city of Columbus and Buckeye Football....
 can you blame him, he will always be a true Hokie Fan!!
Speaking of Birds.......I can't wait for Thanksgiving! Next week we get to fly down to Georgia to spend time with Kevins family, and I hope it is warm, because I am so not ready for this cold stuff we are getting here right now. Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone (well next week that is,...... since Thanksgiving is so late this year). And we all know what Thanksgiving is really about.......Food and Football. So I hope you all will enjoy your turkey and your turkey bowl games as much as I do! TTFN

Forget Ohio, come a little farther north to Michigan. Actually, Columbus isn't that far from Detroit so if you did choose OSU I'm sure we'd be able to see each other. But I still say he should go with U of M instead!

Well I am sure this will not come as a surprise to anyone but I think Kevin should go to UT here in Austin.....then Kels and I would not run up those darn phone bills :)
