Senior Prom!

We had such a wonderful turnout for Glamorous at Glendale Place Senior Prom 2007! It was such a blessing. We received many praises from residents and family for the fabulous event. There are so many great pictures it's hard to find only a few to post
The room all decorated for prom! This is the food table - we had yummy deserts and punch to enjoy!

Enjoying the music

All the women looked beautiful in their gowns and the men looked handsome in their tuxedos!We had a 3 piece jazz band come to entertain, they did an AWESOME job!

And yes...there was dancing!

We got several pictures, I may find some more to post. We also had a trellis set up and took a picture of each resident under the trellis before going into the prom. Jones Florist gave us a great deal on corsages and boutineers for all the residents. This event taking place is just one of the many reasons why I LOVE this job! Such a great reward in planning this event too. We had lots of help and support! I am glad we have some time off before planning the 2nd Annual prom, however, I am looking forward to it!

That is what I am remembering in the midst of a busy and stressful to maintain peace. Just as it says in the Bible, "peace I leave you, my peace I give you. I do not give as the word gives, do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid" John 14:27 also in Isaiah 26:3 "You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast because he trusts in you". I did find myself saying these verses to myself at work, it did help. Senior prom is this coming Thursday, I am just ready to be done with it! I think it will be fun, I should have some fun pictures to post.
Yesterday was wonderful, I was off of work for the first time in 12 days, and I got some errands done! I am almost done with John's birthday shopping. I also bought myself two pairs of shorts (I have not owned a pair of shorts in 4 years!) and a pair of capris at JCPenneys. They were having a big sale! I also bought a Bible dictionary and a new CD. Last night, John and I ordered pizza from Snappy Tomatoes and I watched 3 episodes of Law and Order: SVU. :)
My brother Brian has two job interviews coming up this weekend, I think its the second round for both of them.
It's crazy that this month already halfway over.
Anyway, hope you all have a great and PEACEful week. :)

Memorial Day and last weekend

The top two pics are from last weekend, when my friend Kelly came to visit! We had a blast watching movies and going to ride the roller coasters at Kings Island! We really enjoyed the movie, 'The Queen' with Helen Mirren. It was really interesting to learn about the turmoil going on within the Royal family at the time of Princess Di's death.
John and I had a great time visiting family and friends over Memorial Day a lot of good pics, it was both relaxing and refreshing
Work is super busy- we are in the midst of planning a Senior prom for the residents! It's two weeks from tomorrow and the theme is "Glamorous at Glendale". I'm pretty excited, we are going to ask tux shops and various department stores aka Dillards or Macys to donate gowns (I didn't even know this was an option!)
Question for CW- how do you change it so you can type in between pictures? Everytime I post a pic it automatically goes on the top of the page, even if I change the layout. I can't get it go go beneath or between my typing?
Enjoy the rest of your day!

First Post

Hello friends and family --

I decided to do away with Xanga and create a new and improved blog.

Things are going well. It has already been a busy week and it is only the second day!

This past weekend, my friend Kelly and I went to Kings Island amusement park here in Cincinnati. We had a blast riding all the roller coasters though I must say, I was definitely sore yesterday morning. All worth it though. It was nice to see Kel a bell, she came up Friday night and stayed through Saturday evening.

Some exciting news from today - I hired a full time assistant to work in activities, wahooo! It has been a long process and I pray this will be a great working relationship! Also, Tip, Lindsay, AND my mom are all coming to visit John and I over Labor Day weekend. Should be tons of fun!

We finally got some rain here today in the tri-state area, we needed it too. Ah, how I love thunderstorms. Though John was disappointed because he was ready to go walk tonight. Tomorrow it should be dry and only a high of 73 degrees, sounds better than 89 for the high!
