So Much New Stuff

Well, its been a while and I've meant to write...

Saturday August 23rd: Lacey and Ben's Reception much fun. Margarita Man, tons of family and friends, new skirt (thanks Carynn) and then...I had to break my toe. Well maybe not break but definitely ruined my little toe nail...all purple (pic to come).

Sunday August 24th: We decided to go to Vegas a night early and stay at state line. Good idea becuase me and Kevin won enough money to pay for the room and breakfast the next morning. Plus, it extended our vacation to seem a little longer.

Monday August 25th: Breakfast, Shopping, Rollar Coaster at Buffalo Bills and head to VEGAS!!! Monday was awesome, we went to Mortons for dinner.

Tuesday August 26th: More fun, got to get into a pink room: So much better, my favorite bed ever...
Also went to Bassita's for dinner, (free wine with your meal...always a good time) Jacuzzi, and then went to the House of Blues club "The Foundation Room"for drinks. I <3>

Wednesday August 25th: Time to go home...Cinnamon roll french toast and In-N-Out...SO GOOD

Its was an amazing weekend, even though I missed Olivia and Toby way too much. It is good to be home.

Meghan Kano is the best...She is paying half of my lifetime gym membership so that I can "feel good about myself" because "I deserve it" She's pretty amazing. Here is me in a few weeks
Just Kidding, I really just want to look like this
I really just want to feel good about myself again...I really hope I can keep it up.

Dear Victoria Gardens...Today, you suck.

      Today was the worst experience to Victoria Gardens ever. So I have been wanting to take the kids to go play in the fountain forever now. So I decided today was the day. I wanted to go see if they had this dress at the Forever 21 out there too so I thought I could waste the gas as long as it was for a double purpose. 
      So I packed a backpack full of clothes, lunch, etc.  So we head down there and when I get the kids out of the car I realize I forgot the backpack...So Bummed! So I think oh well, I will just get them naked and let them go for it. So we walk over there and...dunt dunt's closed. You've got to be kidding me. So I ask a security guard who says no that it is closed for the day while they build these stupid tree houses in the middle of that quad. So as Im walking past the stupid houses these construction guys are staring at me. I am a little freaked out so I just keep walking.
     I get to Forever 21 and of course they don't have it but do have 8 million dollars worth of stuff that I most definitely cant afford right now. (I HATE being broke) So I leave empty handed and head back to the car, completely defeated. One the way back I get a better look at the construction guys who were now back to work. I didn't realize it before but they are all wearing orange jumpsuits. I thought it was a little weird that they had on a uniform and at a closer look, I read " CVC PRISONER" Lovely...I only get looked at these days by prisoners.

Ben is home

Its an exciting day for Lacey because Ben (her husband of only 3 days before he left for Iraq for 15 months) is on his Mid-tour from Iraq. He will be here until Labor day and then goes back for another 7 or so months. I am so excited for her. She finally gets her honeymoon 8 months delayed. He is so skinny from being in Iraq. Im sure he lost like 40 pounds or something. He said it is 120 degrees there in August and his pack he wears out in the field weighs in at 90 pounds. Thats so crazy, thats like wearing a 10 year old kid on your back. Maybe I need to join the army and get on the Iraq diet...not really, he is amazing for putting his life on the line for his country...I could never be that brave or sacrificial. We went to Jerseys and he had his first Bud Light and real food (he choose Ravioli) in 8 months. 

I can't wait for Las Vegas... 10 days and counting. Kevin and I, Lacey and Ben, and Angi and Ryan...Amazing company for a much needed and deserved vacation for all. I am so excited I can barely think of anything else. I get these ridiculous, but I can't help it.

Yeah...I finally got a blog

So its dang time I got one. After reading a lot of different ones, (especially Carynns) I realized I need one. It will be nice to have record of all the stuff I go through as a mom, a wife, a friend, and a person.
