Lazy Sundays..

I love lazy some housework done, a nice quiet bath, dinner in the crockpot and now just sitting here watching the race.. today I am going to just enjoy this and tomorrow it's back to the rat race..

Fun Party

Last night I went to a fun party at my neighbor Nikki's house. I intially didn't want to go. I was just tired and looked horrible but she persisted so I went and had a blast. Saw old friends, met some new friends, drank way to many jello shots and just had plain fun. I did spend alittle bit of money and am so hoping we do a couple's party next time.

A year ago today..

my dear friend Brooke lost her father. I can't believe it's been a whole year that he's been gone. I am such a horrible friend I honestly completely forget to call her today and make sure she was okay. I hope she knows I think of her everyday and to Tony..I can't wait to see you again someday..until then I know your up there riding your harley and laughing at us for all the shedding of tears we have done now that your gone.

The waiting game..

The waiting game really sucks..yep we are still waiting on the payoff on the house. I did find out it was mailed Thursday so were hoping to get it today but now have to til at least Monday. I am really hoping that this all works out but like I said in my previous post we have the worst luck so nothing would suprise me. So hopefully Monday everything we will fall into place and we will know for sure. Our fingers are going to hurt from keeping them crossed for so long.

It was a crazy busy week at work, which is to be expected since it's the end of the month but wow thank goodness it's over.
I also thought I would update on the refinancing. We are suppose to close next Thursday @ 4:00 but are still waiting on our payoff on the house so still keeping fingers crossed. This has just got to work for us. We have had so much bad luck and are just hoping to turn things around.

Well that's all I have for is a picture of Logan and Ryan. I keep telling Ryan it's so sad that no one loves him.

These are our friends..yes they are goofy but they are fun and together we always have a great time. We started our weekend at Matt and Brandy's house and after dinner last night ended up at our house. We are always here for each other and would drop anything in a moment for each other and that is true friendship in my eyes.

This is PJ's best friend Tom, he is mostly a permanent fixture at our house.
This is our neighbor Scott.
This is Dave and Angie, our motorcycle riding buddies.

And last but certaintely not least is Matt and Brandy. PJ's cousin but they act more like brothers.

These quotes describes our friends perfectly.

Hope your day is filled with family and fun. I'll be back later tonight to share more fun and pictures from our weekend.

Here is a picture of me and Ryan last nigth at dinner.

Only I could...

fall down the stairs and hurt my tailbone again..aughhhhhhhh my butt hurts!! And I failed miserable at the challenge I issued myself to blog and take a picture everyday for a month. But in my own defense it's been a busy week..Kinsey had a choir concert, still working on refinancing our house. But I will be taking lots of pictures today so check back for those.

So your not going to get a picture today and so I am offically a loser on the first day but I have a really really good right hand and arm is killing me. It hurts so bad I wouldn't even want to pick up my camera and try to take a you just get a post..lame I know but that is life..

In other news appartently I am spending my weekend here...can you guess where here is??

Well it has something to do with this??

Yep we are traveling to South Bend, Indiana to watch the spring football game. Although this isn't really my idea of romantic I do think it will be fun and hubby loves his ND football so for him I'll do it.. and besides this will earn me some major brownie points and I can save those up for when I really want something from him..haha!!

I'm home....

Well after much debate last week about going away for the weekend scrapbooking..I went and had the best time EVER!!! I have never had so much fun as I did this weekend. I cannot wait until the next retreat in September. It was wonderful seeing so many old friends and it was like getting a fresh start..just wonderful. I didn't get as much done as I would have liked to because I didn't take many pictures but I got 13 layouts done so I didn't think that was too bad. Tomorrow it's back to work and Wednesday is my one year anniversary at MMI..woohoo. Also keep us in your thoughts are we are trying to refinance our house..we are waiting on the appraisal to come back so hopefully we'll hear more about that tomorrow or Tuesday.

Also starting today I am going to challenge myself to a picture and a post a day!! Let's see how many days it takes me to fail...LOL

Here is a layout of my little man I did this weekend:

Can you say holy cow...yep we got hammered..It all started yesterday morning..thank goodness I had already scheduled half a vacation day because when I left at 11:30 the roads were already bad and then it just continued to get worse and worse. By this morning at 8:30 we were under a level 3 snow emergency. We have been stuck home all day long which is just fine by me. Hopefully they can get this crap cleaned up so I can get to work Monday.
