so, the verdict on riverfest: it was a blast! i had a great time. i do love country music and i got me some BOOTS - the real kind! audra also bought a pair (hers are the brown, mine are the black) so we can trade. we saw montgomery gentry, keith anderson, blake shelton, and surprise guest miranda lambert (who came out during blake's encore!). we didn't see too many fights - just some red neck loving! (as evidenced by picture #2 - i couldn't resist the shot - they were so happy!)
ALSO SUSAN & SETH WELCOMED LITTLE MAN SETLER TO THE MULHEARN FAMILY! I think we are going to head to Conway Regional this afternoon to sneak a peek at the wee one. Pics to follow (or you can check them on the Day Family blog in my links section). So exciting!
my aunt and my mom both celebrate bdays (aunt jayne was yesterday and mom is tomorrow!). cousin jake and his wife jenny found out they are having a BOY! cousin bridget finds out the sex of her baby next week. sister jen got a bonus at work and baby is coming to little rock in june! i think that is all the news and i feel removed from it and sad about it. especially since karl has been in chicago ALL WEEK. i want to go to yankee-land.
BUT on a positive note, karl got an earlier flight back and will now be arriving at 5 p.m. instead of 10 p.m. so i am very happy about that! AND we have a three day weekend so it's time to go to work around the house! riverfest (musical festival) is here this weekend with lots of musical guests (pat benatar! george clinton & the p funk allstars! ll cool j! blake shelton! um... some other randoms... smashmouth... UM. Ruben Studard. none that sound that appealing to me. when did i lose my love of outdoor concerts and festivals? Probably when i started drinking beer and having to use port a pottys - does that make me old?!? plus, the last time i went to a concert in Arkansas, i was a bit shocked by the sheer force of rednecks AND they sold spit cups for 50 cents. oh AND the child - yes, child - next to me puked in his beer cup. and my ears were assulted by hey ya'lls and yee haws! tee hee. :)

at the ball park! we attempted to go to Valentine's in the new Dickey Stephens stadium in NLR but it was unfortunately full on friday evening. however, we did sneak a peek at the new stadium and it is pretty awesome! and i'm pretty excited to go to some games this season!
we also hit the greek food festival (yum!) and ran around town. the time went by way too fast and now we are on to another exciting work week. i am not feeling the bloggy blog inspiration today so i promise a more inclusive and amusing update tomorrow.

Um.. hello little Setler! Knock, Knock. Come outta there! We had dinner with Su and Seth and baby Setler last night. Yummmmmmmmmmmm. It was delish and little man Mulhearn is ready to come out. I just know it! I want to know who will win the baby pool! Definately not me - my mom, linda, was due with me - baby kathleen (or brian or kevin or matthew if i was a boy! they didn't know.) on May 26th (also my mom linda's bday) but i was obviously May 4th - so i picked May 4 in the Mulhearn baby pool; alas it has passed! If you didn't get to participate in the baby pool for Baby Setler please leave your time of birth, date of birth, and baby weight in the comment section. She is currently 1 cm dialated and 80% effaced - whatever that means! ;)
hopefully we will have pics from the hospital soooooooon!
happy mama's day to all the mama's and soon to be mama's out there. i will be celebrating belatedly when my mama comes to visit this weekend!! this week is promising to be BUSY. updates soon including footage from upcoming travs games, friends in town, parents in town, bachelorette, and going away parties!
hole #2 was my favorite.... it is the top picture. the tee was on a bluff and you could see straight out to the lake! oh, and, it was only like 150 yards of the ball floating through the air. it was the only hole we almost made par. please note i said almost! we played the front nine (well i think we wound up playing like six since it was taking us a little long!) good times, good times.
retreat is always a good time. the beer comes out, the hair gets let down.... it's quite fun to see your co workers that way. good way to get to know them and all that!
Before we headed out on the town in Palm Beach - clematis street or some such name.
mere throwing up a goofy smirk and gang sign in honor of this video.
I am pretty sure half my Florida pics have fake gang signs in them. oops.
i am the bday girl and here is my crown.
on the beeeeeeeeeeeeach.
updates from work shortly.
tomorrow is kind of a big day at casa de hills. karl and i will both be starting new jobs - on the same day. which is pretty entertaining. even more entertaining is that we will both (on the same day) be returning to companies who have previously employed us (respectively). yep, i know i have blogged about my own job change but I haven't mentioned that karl also will be changing things up a bit - starting tomorrow. he will go back to being a stephens employee and i will go back to being an arkansas business employee. kinda funny how things worked out like that, huh?

i'm ready. packing right now. i am the worlds worst packer - always wait until the last second, throw random, non-matching things in bags/suitcases, have the mentality that eh-i'll just buy it or borrow it when i get there. so usually my out of town outfits are even less put together than normal everyday outfits. which isn't saying much!
i am wearing my signature peace pipe shirt (best 25 cents i EVER spent) and flip flops. i, of course, overslept and have to run a bunch of last minute errands on this cloudy, wet day! cross your fingers it is sunny in florida.
i am only 25 years old for two more days! OLD. I will be bringing my camera and mac book so you most likely will get a blog update of mere and me while I am there!
