weekend update

So, week two of blog sucking has now come and gone.  I think I need some kind of goal to keep this up consistently, otherwise it will be just another thing to add to my quit list... I will have to think about that one, but if any of you have any ideas, please let me know! 

Well, I had quite the fun filled three day weekend! Saturday boyfriend and I went to Santa Cruz with Olivia and Derek.  We did so much, and had so much fun! They even got me on a roller coaster, and I played the duck and cover game the whole time.   

Clearly, we had a lot of fun on Saturday.  Then Sunday rolled around and it was just as fun, but in a more relaxed way.  Greg and Jelena invited us over for a cook out with some of their family and friends.  Sadly, the only pictures I took were of some of the food, and by some of the food, I mean about a 1/10 of it, there was so much! And every bit of it was delicious.  Grilling makes all food better.  

While all this fun in the sun was happening, my McMurry family lost someone very near and dear to their hearts.  Jeremie Border died in Afghanistan this past Saturday. He was not someone I knew well, but he was someone that left an impression on me. We would meet in the campus center every so often for a mid day chat and a quick a nap on those awful couches. To everyone who knew and loved him, I am so sorry for your loss.  He was a special one, who will be missed and remembered everyday.
