Ah, and what a great weekend it's been! Friday I got to be lazy at home, which, of course, is one of my favorite things to do lately. I hit the gym hard that night, knowing that I would not be going Saturday and Sunday, and I worked my thighs until I could have cried. Lots of reps, not so much weight, that's the toning way, right?

But the best part of the weekend was the NBS banquet. This was the first year I just attended, I didn't work, and that was weird. I'm used to being behind the scenes, helping where I can to make it happen, and it just seemed so strange to just show up and play. Of course, while I was getting ready to go, and things were getting crazy, I turned on the water in my sink to wash up, and . . . no cold water. Hot water, but no cold. Huh??? Hey, did you know if you have vents under your house, you're supposed to put insulation in there during the cold months? Who knew?!?!? But, my landlord came to the rescue, and I now have water!!! Anyway, got to the banquet, in time for social hour. It was awesome to get to see everyone again, and the food, as always, slurp! Awards were given, people laughed, and the DJ played. At first, no one was really interested in dancing, but then he got into some GREAT 80's stuff, and that got everyone moving. "Celebrate", "Pour Some Sugar On Me", "Nothing But A Good Time", and we all loved it. C. even got a very special "Happy Birthday" from the oh-so-talented Hillary, and the 50/50 was a smashing success. Oh, wait. Pictures you say? Sure!

Super Stud Garth - this kid has got the braces off, and is working an awesome new look. Garth, you really need to go this Spring. Laurie and I will get on the hunt for you, ok?

Then of course there are the R kids. A. certainly knows how to have a good time! He's a heart breaker in the making. And don't even get my started on L. . . . poor girl was worn out, but she was one of the first to be out there tearing it up!

And last, but certainly not least, another of my favorite people . . . Laurie. One of the regular players in "Girls Night Out", and last night was no exception. Almost makes me wish the banquet was a monthly thing . . . . almost.
