It's been too long...


Oh gosh...first I got onto my sister for not blogging and now I'm the slacker in the family. Oops! Well let me update you on the ongoings of my life.

The Hicks Girls have been vacationing fools in the past month. I spent 8 days down in New Orleans at Mardi first time! It was so much fun! Seriously. Noel and I went down there to stay with her friend (and mine now too) Ashley. Oh my gosh. It was unbelievable. That city has a charm that is indescrible. I kept saying that it is a different world, and its so true. The culture, the people, the energy, everything. It was definitely a fun time and I can't wait to go back for Mardi Gras 2010!

Happy Mardi Gras day! Our costumes for next year are already on hold and are freaking awesome!

Noel, me and Ashley at one of the MANY parades we went too! Check out our loot!!

One of my favorite things about NOLA....all the masks. Seriously. I may or may not be slightly obessed with them!

Me and Noel in the French Quarter, which was very cool.

Two days after I returned from The Big Easy, Burgess and Adam left for Scottsdale, Arizona for a week. It was their first no-Wyatt vacay (who spent half the week with GG and Grandaddy (Mom and Dad) and 'Ama and 'Apa (Grandma and Grandpa, Adam's parents). I'll let her tell you about her trip...but I know she had a good time!!

Other than that things are pretty much the same ole, same ole around the Queen City. I'm in complete half-marathon training mode for the Flying Pig marathon on May 4th. I'll take two or three weeks off and then start training for my very first marathon--the Marine Corps Marathon in D.C. in October! Woohoo!!

Looking ahead, I'm so excited for the summer. Big changes are coming my way..and I'm not sure what exactly they will be. But I'm trying to be ready for them and embrace the fact that the winds are shifting. Wyatt turns 2 on April 25...which is unbelievable that he's that old already. Burgess and Wy are coming for a visit next weekend, and I'm so excited about it. Looks like a trip to the zoo and Jungle Jim's are in our future!

Hope you're all doing well. We'll get better about keeping this bad boy updated. :)
