my chin

Thursday May 18, 2006

I have a big white bandage on my chin today.

It has been there all day.

I kept pointed it out to people, you know, to make sure that they didn’t miss the completely obvious white bandage on my chin.

I tired to tell people that I was in a bar fight or that I was kick boxing or that someone mugged me…

The truth is I had a mole removed.

Apparently no one knew I had this mole because when I would tell them I had a mole removed from my chin they were like, “you had a mole on your chin?”

The best quote of the day was, “Your mole wasn’t even noticeable Anne but that bandage totally is!”

Ben is now an official Bachelor and as of yesterday Jake is an offical Master!


The weekend was really really fun! We got to meet all of Ben’s friends and we really celebrated all day/night/day long!

I will be in La Crosse, WI in twelve hours.

Jake and I are leaving at 9 am.

I will be with all of the Ingmans at 5 pm for dinner in La Crosse, WI.

Ben is graduating on Saturday.

I will be returning to one of my most favorite places in the world.

I spent four years of my life there.

Jake and I fell in love in La Crosse, WI while I was living there and he was living in Ames, IA.

Now I live in Ames, IA and now we are both going back to La Crosse, WI, together.

I cannot wait to see Ben; freak out because I am bursting with excitement…and then start to annoy him because I will probably be too excited about EVERYTHING; share a hotel room with Mary and Katie; see all my old professors and eat at the Communication Studies breakfast which I just did four years ago!

I will be in La Crosse, WI in twelve hours.

I need to go to bed.

turned around

Monday May 8, 2006

In just 25 hours (including seven hours in the car and seven hours sleeping) I stopped in Northfield for a backyard BBQ; continued on to to St. Paul to stay up late laughing and catching up with Allisa and Delip; woke up early with Thelma and Allisa to met Amanda, Matt, Paige, and Luke at Nina’s for an almond croissant and cappuccino; got my hair cut on Grand Avenue; met back up with Matt, Amanda, and Paige for an impromptu photo shoot; chatted about life with Paige in her downtown loft; picked up a strawberry shake at Snuffy’s and a delicious margarita pizza at Punch; got back in my car and turned around.
