5. Sonic Happy Hour.
If there is a Sonic near your house, and you are not taking advantage of this two hour window of heaven...SHAME ON YOU. Sonic drinks are already delicious. And they taste twice as good when they cost half as much. I visit the local Sonic 3-5 times per week. Some may consider that unhealthy. I call it dedication.
4. Baylor Homecoming.
I love everything about Baylor Homecoming. Firstly, football. Normal football games are fun...the Homecoming game is 10x better. Nothing beats a stadium full of past, present, and future Bears collectively executing that perfectly timed third down "sic 'em." It's even better if we actually win.
Secondly, Pigskin. It's like Sing, but without all the bad ones. Also, it doesn't last 5 hrs like its springtime counterpart.
Thirdly, bonfire. A picture is worth a thousand words. Check out that picture. Check out that fire. That fire is huge. Welcome to Baylor.
Fourthly, Viteks. This has nothing to do with Baylor or its Homecoming, but it has everything to do with Waco. This little bbq gem is just one of the fantastic eateries that makes Waco tolerable. Gut pack? Yes, please.
3. String Cheese.
2. Weekend Trips to New Orleans.
Darren - this was probably the best idea we've ever had. Let's do it again sometime. PS I miss Raja.
Of course Rosie is my number one. This dog is my other half. I mean really...look at that face, those ears, those eyes. She is irresistible. Sure, she may drool a little bit, or maybe she howls sometimes, or sheds (apologies to my parents' upholstered furniture), but I think she is perfect.
FUN SCIENCE FACT #2: Armadillos (Family Dasypodidae) get 17-22 hours of sleep per day. So does Rosie.
