1. I talked to Carol for the first time in over a year. For having been one of my best friends in school, I've done a lousy job at keeping in contact with her. But she called to tell me she's getting married, and I was uber-excited! I literally cheered and hopped around the room after I got off the phone.
Kim and Carol ... long ago
2. After enjoying some delicious frozen yogurt at Red Mango, I heard my name called while walking out, and when I turned, I saw it was my old roommate Nicole! What a sweetheart. Although I lived with her for only four months over four years ago, she was a blast to share a room with, so I was excited that she recognized me and got my attention.

3. I got to go out to dinner with my family when my aunt Vicki was in the area, so we went to Carrabba's and gave my cousin Steph a hard time while she waited on us. Good food and my family? Yeah, that's worth skipping fhe for.
4. I am safe from having to give a talk in church for a while. Put me in front of a podium for a musical number, I feel fine. I even will perform admirably, if not perfectly. Put me up there to give a memorized line/paragraph/anything that somebody else wrote down at any point in time, I will be great. Put me up there to give a talk where I'm using my own words, I have to pray all day for the jitters to back off. Fortunately, I think it went well, and I'm safe. For now.
5. I finally bought an air popper and a candy thermometer and made caramel corn! 'Twas delicious.
I wonder what it says about me that three of my favorite moments somehow involved food. I'll justify it by saying that each of those times, I had someone(s) to share it with. -cue audience "awwww"-
