The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

The Good:  I'm not the only person to get a ticket this week.

The Bad:  The other person was my husband.  We got a ticket from a red light camera in the mail today.  

The Ugly:  Now that we are having to pay TWO tickets to the city of Dallas, our pool table fund is suffering.  Sad.

The Beautiful:  I GOT IN!!! I got my acceptance into the PPPE (Public Policy and Political Economy) PhD program today!!  YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY!!!!!!!

Now I still need to wait and see about a TA position.  I'm praying I get one.  A TA position means free tuition (which is $5,310 a semester), free books (roughly $1000 a semester), and a monthly stipend - which since we are paying roughly $15,000 a semester for Casey's MBA right now would be really really nice!

To celebrate I made Sprinkles Mint Chocolate Cupcakes - well made is a strong word - I used the mix - yummy!
