A little bit of this and a little bit of that

FIRST OFF- I'm just so excited to be able to have wireless internet again!! I've been with out it ever since I moved out here. We only had one ethernet cable to hook up our computers to, but I finally decided to head out today and buy a wireless router! Yay for me!

Okay, now that I have that taken care of, I do have things to share.

Work does continue to be a little challenging for me, but I'm still loving every bit of it. What can I say other than what I've already said before... I'm LOVING what I finally have a chance to do.

For the most part, I've been doing more of softer story telling, which would be reports on fluffy things, like events taking place. But this weekend I reported on my first homicide case. Looks like the reporting turned out pretty good, since my weekend supervisor (and anchor) complimented me about it. I was happy!

As for other things, one of my newest friends, Patrick was nice enough to invite me out to my first ice-hockey game in Laredo! Go Laredo Bucks.... I guess! Right!

My newest Laredo friend!

Apparently, after every goal the bucks make, people throw these squashy-feeling corn husks (that they get for a quarter a piece) out on the ice to cheer and show Bucks spirit. I thought it was hilarious... and cheesy! It was fun though! I decided to get a picture of us showing these goofy little corn husk things.

Oh and I just am SO, SO, SO excited to show my very first gift I received as a reporter! Check it:


These are some really yummy tasting cookies I received from a school principal for doing a report on a college dual enrollment class offered at their school. She was so great. I normally try to lay off sugar, but I didn't hold back this time. I had to enjoy my present, and I totally did. 

Moving on to another great thing, I met baby Lily!! She's seriously adorable... oh and grouchy, too. lol! 

I'm glad I'll get to be around her. Since she is a newborn, though, it's still hard for me to tell what type of personality she'll have. I'm just waiting now for her to hurry up and grow up so I can know!

This is it, but just for now. More to come very soon. And much sooner than it has. I'm plannin on taking pictures of just about everything around me. I love documenting!
