Last Sunday [10.17.10]

I became a Godmother to my this handsome little guy.

Before the baptism.

Right after. Look at that smile!

I'm not religious, but was an honor to be chosen by my brother and SIL.

Five Question Friday

Oh How I Wish It Was Still The Weekend


Hubs worked.  It was lonely.  I watched the first four episodes of the current season of Life Unexpected.  Hubs finally got home around 10:30.  It was a long night without him.  My parents dogs bark at everything and it freaks me out.  We watched some Mad Men and hit the hay.


Woke up super early (5am).  Hubs has been interested in hunting lately so we went out with his dad and sister to watch his dad quail hunt.  Which we only saw one the entire time and that was when we were driving out to a location to actually hunt at.  We got some good hiking time in though.

Cute heart shaped cactus we saw while walking around.

After hunting we went to a different location to do some shooting.  I finally got to shoot the two new guns my dad gave me.  He gave me a SIG P6 (P225) and my grandpa's Wingmaster 870, and I love both of them.  Hubs wanted me to shoot his shotgun, but I hated it. 

My FIL is a thug.  Beer in one hand, gun in the other.

Saturday I also went to work for a few hours, which was lame.  But I wanted to make up some time from me missing work on Wednesday.


Lazy day!  We sat around all day and watched Mad Men.  I just wish I could have taken a nap though.  That would have made the day perfect.


I worked.  But I took some time out to have lunch with two lovely ladies.  Jenny from Among the Blossoms and Brittany from The Goodyear Family.  We went to IHOP and our server looks like Snoop Dogg and he kept calling all of us "sweetheart".  And told us multiple times that we could get "whatever we want".  Only slightly creepy.  But we had a tottally fun time!

How was your weekend?

Meet Me On Monday

Thanks to Jen at What Would Jen Do for posting this.  Now I have more fun questions to answer every week!

1. Do your pants get hung on a hangar or folded?

Folded.  I have no closet space in our new place.

2. If you are stranded on an Island, what 3 things would you need to have with you (not including humans or electronic devices)?

Chapstick. Hair Tie. Dr Pepper.

3. Where is the farthest you have ever traveled to?

Germany, Austria or Switzerland. I don't know which is farthest.

4. Do you live in a house, trailer or apartment, etc.?


5. What is your most hated household chore?

Cleaning the bathrooms. YUCK!

Five Question Friday

1. What do you listen to while driving?

The radio.  I'm not picky.  I just like to have a good song on.

2. What is your least favorite thing about Fall?

Does Arizona even have fall?  If so, what is there to hate about it?  It's got to be better than summer in Arizona.

3. What does your dream house look like, inside and out?

Lucky for you, I've posted about that before.  My dream house.

4. Would you ever own a minivan?

Hell yes!  There are some sweet minivans out there!

5. Do you wash new clothes before wearing them?

Most of the time.  Sometimes new clothes irritate my skin.  My skin is sensitive.

Wordless Wednesday

Hail is a BIG deal in Phoenix, AZ.  We're notorious for 115 degree weather most of the year.  This is also the first time Hubs has even seen hail.  So, of course, I had to document it.  Enjoy!

Hail from early afternoon while I was at work.

Root Beer was extremely interested.

Hubs liked this picture because you can see individual pieces of hail.

Water coming off the roof with some hail.

Random Tuesday Thoughts


I think this meme might be my favorite.  I don't have to think at all.

Right now I'm really wanting a bagel and an iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts (with cream, sugar and caramel).  So if you'd like to bring that to me I would love you forever and ever.

Tomorrow my parents are going on vacation.  They need a ride to the airport. Hubs and I are taking them.  We have to be at their house AT 5:30.  I might be calling in.  We are also supposed to stay at their house while they are gone.  We are bringing our dogs with us, which means we will be taking care of SEVEN dogs and two cats.  And four of their five dogs don't particularly like our dogs, but that's alright they will get used to them.

Hubs work is hardly giving him any hours and they haven't even trained him on everything yet.  This is his third week working there.  This week he works Thursday and Friday.  That's it.  Very frustrating.  He's going to start looking on Craigslist again.

I miss them being this small.

Well I'm off to get some free coffee in my kitchen to see if it helps my craving.  Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Weekend Update

This weekend we didn't do much.  We had an eye appointment Saturday afternoon.  He was a very nice guy.  I got some trial contacts, which I'm wearing right now.  I look so different.  I have worn contacts in almost two years.

My parents came over later on Saturday to take a look at our apartment since it's nearing completion.  I will put some pictures up soon!  Promise!

The rest of Saturday was pretty relaxing.

Sunday we went over to my parents house to pick up some guns that we'd talked about taking over to Hubs gunsmith.  Also my nephew was supposed to be there so it was a good excuse to go see him.

We ate lunch, visited with my brother who stopped by to say hello, went swimming and hung out.  It was a pretty relaxing Sunday.  Hubs even took me out for Mexican food for dinner!  It was delicious.  We talked about tattoos that we want to get and have decided to start saving up for some!

And now I leave you with some adorableness...

What a stud!

I stole this one from my SIL's Facebook. He's so cute!

How was your weekend?

Five Question Friday


1. Did you have a pen pal when you were little (or now)? Where were/are they from?

I've never had an actual pen pal, but before I went to Germany with People to People we got to email with some of the families that we were going to stay with.

2. If you could do a different job for one day, what would it be?

Anything with books.  I love books.

3. Do you remember your biggest fear from when you were little?

I'm guessing it was the dark and bugs.  I still have a problem with both, haha.

4. What do you think is a waste of time? Why?

TV.  But I watch it anyways.

5. What is the oldest item you have in your closet?

I have my Letterman's jacket.  Hubs has a jacket from when he was in football when he was little.
