Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

Ole Miss/LSU Weekend and more

Well this last weekend proved to be a heart breaker as Ole Miss played their little buns off but just couldn't come through with the win in the end. It was a hard loss but it really came down to whoever had scored last when the time ran out because it was so close the whole game. We had a fun weekend in Baton Rouge. It all started at Chimes for the launch of Tin Roof Beer. Two of Zach's good friends from home started a brewery in Baton Rouge and this week they launched their first 2 beers, Perfect Tin and VooDoo Bengal. Zach was so excited to get down there and show his support aka..drink a lot o' beer! We impatiently waited in an hour of traffic entering Baton Rouge to finally make it to the Launch Party and it was so worth it.

Then it was back in traffic to head to Lauren and Madison's Couples Shower! It was so nice to see the two love birds and I am so excited about seeing them get hitched in March I can't stand it. All the girls pitched in a got them a KitchenAid Mixer! They were both really excited- Lauren wanted to start baking and Madison wants the Sausage maker attachment. It was a great time and enjoyed seeing the girl, their boys, and Brooks!

The next day we tailgated with friends and then headed to Superior Grill to meet up with the entire Richardson clan and the Luphers. Elle had a ball showing off all her signs and tricks to Uncle Zach. She is a doll!!
