Two days until New York!!!!

We leave on Friday for New York City!! I’m so excited!!! I know we are going to have a blast.

Glenn and Tammy got tickets to The David Letterman Show for Monday night!! He had to answer a trivia question today about the show. They asked him where Rupert Jee works…Hello Deli!!! We all applied, but the rest of us haven’t gotten a call yet. I’m just glad they are getting to go to the show. Some of us will probably go to The Today Show on Monday morning, so keep your eyes peeled for us!

We have our days planned with plenty to do while we are there. It’s always fun to go with people who haven’t been there before and Glenn, Tammy, and Scott have never been, so we’ll be touring the Big Apple together seeing all the big sites! Hopefully, the weather will be very pleasant! I’m looking VERY forward to COOL weather!!! It’s been sooooooo HOT here…I can’t take much more of it!

I’ll post pictures when we return on Tuesday!!

Stephanie and Scott's baby arrives!!!

William Scott Sterling II arrived on Tuesday, October 12, 2004 at 11:13 p.m. at Woman’s Hospital in Baton Rouge, LA. He weighed 7 pounds and was 20 inches long. He’s gorgeous!!

Lauren and I traveled up to Baton Rouge on Tuesday afternoon around 1:00 p.m. for the birth. But William had different plans. He waited until later that night to enter the world! Lauren and I had to head back to New Orleans around 9:00 p.m., so we were not there for the birth!! I was bummed out, but my mom and I went back up last night to see William! I couldn’t wait. He is just perfect. He looks like a little angel! Mom (Stephanie) is doing very well and her and Dad (Scott) are thrilled to have their son here!

I have posted pictures on my website. You can view them here.

I can’t wait to see William again soon!!!

Oodles going on...

It has been another busy weekend. Friday night was our girls’ dinner. We went to Vaquero's on Metairie Road. It was good and we had a nice group that went to dinner. We got a chance to catch up and visit. We missed some of the girls this month. Not everyone can make it every month with everything that is going on, but we try! Nicole had to miss it this month because her son, Alex had surgery on Friday. He is doing well and everything went OK, thank God. I ran into my Uncle Malcolm and Pia at the restaurant, so that was an unexpected pleasant surprise.

On Saturday, was our neighbor, Jaime and Todd's wedding at 11:00 a.m. It was at St. Rita's Church and the reception was at Chateau Country Club. We all had a lot of fun! We continued the party once we got home, too. Lauren came over with her three girls and they played with our neighbor's kids for a while. Lauren said she needed "therapy" after coming to that "therapy!" She'll need to come again without the kids one time! I'm sure she'll have more fun!!

Today, I recuperated from the long day we had yesterday and watched the NASCAR race from Talladega!!!! It was awesome!!!!!!!!! Dale Ehrhardt Jr. won again for his fifth time at this track! Aunt Cheryl got in her car yesterday and went to race by herself! I think she brought Jr. some good luck in the race!!! I'm glad she went, because I know she really wanted to go!

Today is Lauren's birthday. We were supposed to go to St. Angela's fair to hear the Bucktown All-stars play, but that didn't work out. She had other obligations. But Happy Birthday, Lauren!!!

(Just an update: My make-up days for work are on November 1st, which is one of the days I'll be in NYC and the other three days are the week of Christmas! But I have a wonderful substitute lined up for the days. Election Day is still a holiday.)
