Just Like My Momma's.....

My favorite thing about the Holidays is all of the baking I get to do. I usually give my friends treats for their Christmas presents.  My favorite thing to make, and my friend's favorite thing to eat are my Momma's cheese straws.  They are pretty much amazing.  Last night I had to get all of my baking done so I could give out my gifts today at work.  So here is a little look at what the Messer household looked like last night.

Baby, It's Cold Outside...

The snow was sooooo beautiful this morning.  I immediately called my coworker/buddy Jason when I got to work and told him to grab his camera so we could shout some photos. After the snow stopped falling, I had to prepare for our work's annual Holiday Potluck Lunch.  The food was super yummy and now I'm super tired and need a super long nap.  I just love the Holidays!

A Messer Halloween...

Halloween has come and gone but boy was it a good time.  Greenville NC is known for their WILD Halloween bash downtown and we always make our way to my coworkers house (near downtown) to celebrate! This year she threw the Halloween party on Saturday so that gave us Sunday to recuperate. Saturday was spent preparing for the party by finishing up last minute details on our costumes and making yummy Halloween treats. Sunday was spent on the couch watching movies until late afternoon. Eric and I finished off the day by carving our pumpkin and walking around the neighborhood to see all the cute trick or treaters (since we never get any). So here it is... Halloween 2010.

"Congress shall make no law... abridging the freedom of speech..."

National Freedom of Speech Week
October 18-24, 2010

Laupus Library (where I work) and Multimedia and Technology Services Diversity Committee invited East Carolina University's West Campus to celebrate National Freedom of Speech Week.

They posted giant sheets of paper on the walls in the hall outside of the library.  They asked that people express themselves on the Free Expression Wall.  Pens, markers, and crayons were provided and it didn't take long for the bare white papers to be covered...
