Spring Activities

It looks like I'm a good once-a-month blogger! I've had a few posts that I keep meaning to put up, but with blogger blocked at work, it's a little bit harder to get motivated to look at a computer after I've mindlessly stared at one for 8 hours (and we all know what Mark's posts are like!)

A couple of weeks ago Mark and I went to the Hillcrest Hospital Gala to mark the opening of the new hospital building. We ended up getting there a little earlier than most people and were able to tour the hospital on our own. The new building is amazing - with talking hospital beds, state of the art lights in the ORs that change colors, and tons of other neat new features. We had a great time getting dressed up and having run of the building. Not to mention that we got to hear the great speaches by the important people - like Mark's dad!

I've looked for pictures of the new hospital, but can't find any right now. I promise I'll post some when I find them - it really is very impressive (and I know most people could care less about what facilities a new hospital has...what can I say, I'm a dork).

In other news, I had part of my toenail removed last Friday. All in all it was uneventful, and the spot we were worried about turned out to be no big deal. I'm still clear on the melanoma front here! My toe looks a little funny, but it doesn't hurt anymore - and might be back to normal in a year...

We've also been to many of the Baylor Baseball games - we're in 2nd in conference right now and the team is fun to watch. Friday was military appreciation night, complete with camo hats and veterans throwing out the first pitch. Of course Edith did a great job organizing her veterans (she's in the perfect Baylor yellow pants and green sweater).

Finally, we had a great Easter in Dallas. Mark and I went to the King Tut exhibit at the DMA yesterday - which was a lot of fun. We really emjoyed our cultural outing. We also stopped by the Flying Saucer in Addison. Lindsay and Nick first introduced us to the bar in South Carolina and we thought it would be fun to return last night. I had my first Snakebite (apparently famous from Baylor in Great Britain) and Mark had some really dark beers (yuck!).

We enjoyed church at Park Cities this morning...and then Easter Brunch on the indoor tennis courts at Royal Oaks - yum!

I'm already planning my next post - a tour of our first apartment - so hopefully I'll be back before the middle of May!

Happy Spring to everyone!
