Home at last!!!

WOW, what an experience! It was amazing! So awesome to meet all the girlies I've gotten to know through emails over the past 3 months, to meet Ali, Cathy Z, Tim, Elise and everyone else that taught or just hung around! Lisa, I couldn't have asked for a better person to share this experience with! You ROCK chica!

So I get to San Jose Tuesday night...starving. Lisa takes me to In and Out...MMMMMM! We go back to her place and basically I get shown around and we crash! Up early on Wednesday to head to the hotel to get ready for the Bus Tour! Never seen so many pink shirts in one place in my life!!! Nope not even in a store! LOL! We meet to awesome ladies Lena & Nina (not related, not did they know each other) and the 4 of us hang out most of the time! Of course we meet TONS of other girlies and shopped out hearts out! The girls you put together the bus tour, went over & beyond what I could have imagined! We didn't even need the stores! Seriously, they were throwing (sometimes literally) freebies at us! It ROCKED!!! We started at 9am and 6 stores and Hambly (screen printer) later we arrived back at the hotel at 9pm! Totally exhausted but STARVING we hit up Max's at the hotel for some yummy food & a nice cold one!

Thursday was registration baby!!! Got up earlier then expected and got very close to the front of the line...awesome! Then started the make n takes. Every sponsor set up a booth for us to create a 6x6 page for a favorite things album. The albums hold 16 pages and we completed them ALL plus a couple extras! It was so fun, but after I think we both thought it was a bit much! That night at the pep rally we had a blast met Ali & Cathy (again) chatted them up for awhile and took a FAB pic that Lisa will have to post b/c it was with her camera!

Friday & Saturday we did our tracks and 6 classes. I'll get more into all that later. Just have to say, like Cathy Z I have a girl crush on Ali!!! I LOVE her!!! Her really wanted to chat with everyone and wanted to hear and really listen to what you had to say and she talked about her life and wasn't all private it was AWESOME! Like a real friend it was amazing I tell you!!! Okay so I'm done chattin for now I'm so tired and we're going to my cousin's for dinner!

And I know you're going to read this tonight Baby so just wanted to say I LOVE you and I CAN'T FREAKING WAIT to see you Thursday night!!!

So I tried to load some pics and the server is having problems!!! UGH! But if you're a boodle I'll go post some there now! ;)

I'm a BAD blogger...

to all my BLOGGER friends...so sorry i've been HORRIBLE about checking all your BLOGS this last week! I've peeked at a few and go to post and someone needs something or I think of something to do from CKU and then I forget. So I apoligize! After CKU I will be better! PROMISE! LOL!

So not much has been going on around here, except stressin about CKU and making sure i'm prepared! I'm SO freaking excited about this trip you have NO idea! I'm a littler nervous too b/c i'm leaving my family for a whole 5 days but at the same time i'm SO EXCITED!!! Momma deszerves a break too right???

So instead of posting more aboutl ife issues i'm taking the TTS blogger challenge and posting 10 things about ME! So here goes...

1. I LOVE bring a mom, sure I get SO frustrated and stressed out but I wouldn't change being a mom for anything!!!

2. I LOVE MY HUBBY! DUH, who doesn't right! And I LOVE how we met! We met about 8 years ago at a bar in Nogales, AZ called Senor Amigos! We met, I swear we knew we were it...suppose to be together...how cheesy I know!!! But i don't care!!! And we've been together ever since!!! I love you baby!!!

3. I want to be a nurse. Many of you probably don't even know that...actaully i'm not sure Lisa even know's that and she's my best friend...sorry girl! ;) As soon as Neely goes to Kindergarden I'm going to start the program at the community college here! Can't wait!

4. I eat drink and live scrapbooking! I love it! Everything about it, I love going to malls, grocery stores...anywhere and looking for cool ads, color combos or picture ideas! I LOVE this hobby and ALL the amazing chicks i've met!!!

5. I freak out if my camera is NOT in my purse! I feel naked if i don't have it will me! I just love to be able to capture those crazy moments or weird things you don't see very often and of course those classic things my crazy girls do! So for example here's something VERY interesting I saw on my way home from Chandler one day...

6.. I have this issue with my weight...again who doesn't. I know i'm about 30lbs over weight but then I still eat that whatever. I exersice and sometimes eat really good, but sometimes don't. I have this battle with food and HATE it! I wish I was like Reed and just didn't care about food, but I LOVE it and honestly it sucks!!! The good thing is I'm happy with me. I know I need to lose those lbs and I know one days I WILL!!!

now jsut some little facts about me...

7. When I get into bed at night i HAVE to put lotion on my hands & feet before I lay down!

8. I'm addicted to popcron, M&M's and tabasco sauce...yes all mixed in together!

9. I hate to brush my teeth before I drink my coffee...it taster funny! YUCK!

10. I'm addicted to Diner Dash 2...i know i'm a dork! LOL! I can't help it, I saw the ad for it in a magazine (can't remember which one) I did the free trail, bought it and now i'm hooked!!! And it's hard! But I love it!!!

Okay So enough of that! Have a great day!!!

Wedding Pictures

Matt & Laurel's Wedding weekend!

So I went up to Flagstaff, AZ with the girls on Friday and I was TOTALLY looking forward to the wedding and seeing everyone BUT I was so not looking forward to being a "single" mom! Well all I can say about that is my family ROCKS!!! Nana and Aunt Mary watched ALL the little ones so all of us crazy people could go party and boy did we party!!! It was the night of the rehearsal dinner and the place was so COOL! Up stairs was this totally chill bar with an amazing balcony. (We'll talk more about the balcony later) It was a BLAST! It sucked that Reed wasn't there though. :( We danced, drank...and laughed SO HARD!!! It was fantastic!!! Okay so yes the night was perfect except for one little thing...while on the balcony (3 stories high) I was talking to my uncle Dave, reaching into my purse of something (can't even remember what now) well my purse has this pocket on the outside and as I go to get whatever it was and something VERY precious to me grew a life/wings and jumped out of the pocket and dropped 3 STORIES! My camera!!! Yup the one I just got not even 2 months ago!!! 3 STORIES!!! I freaked out ran down the stairs and it was in tack but totally needed help. :(
Saturday was the day of the actual wedding so before it started we all hung out and talked, took cat naps with 5 girls on the bed, watched Anissa do all the little girls hair! It was too fun! Another fantastic thing that happened that morning was Terrence fixed my camera!!! He took out the little screws and popped that bad boy back together and VOILA! AND IT WORKS!!! Can you belief that! I LOVE SONY!!! So writing them a letter/email to tell them THEY ROCK!!! So the wedding...WOW! Amazing! The spot they choose was so beautiful! When we 'watched' them get married behind them was trees, mountains...breath taking! It was the sweetest ceremony I have ever seen! I'm so happy for the 2 of them!
Today Matt & Laurel hosted a brunch for everyone that came to the wedding, it was at the same awesome spot as the rehearsal dinner we enjoyed yummy bloody mary's and chit chat and then it was off to the road again! So we're driving I'm following Deb & T and we're doing about 85 maybe a bit more just cruising along with traffic, Rylee starts freaking out b/c her ears are popping so I'm trying to comfort her from the front seat without waking Neely and I notice Terrence get over into the right lane...hmm weird I thought oh well I keep on keeping on...well now I know why T got over...COP!!! Dang it! What a way to start the 5 hour drive! We weren't even 50 miles out of Flagstaff and I got a ticket!!! UGH!!! The rest of the drive was great though, girls were awesome! Love them! And the best news is we're home now!!!

So one more quick thing, Heather i'm stealing your idea hope ya don't mind. My camera need's a name b/c this girl is TOUGH and after all that she needs a name... I suck at this so any ideas???
