Nice week off

So I had another week off from work which is SO nice and it was such a great time!! Last Friday I finally got to meet my new little cousin Hannah and we went out to dinner with my dad's family at Iggy's!! We had so much fun it was so nice getting to see my Aunt and her family! We don't get to see them near as much as we'd like to so when they're here its so fun! Sunday my Mom cooked dinner for Riley's birthday and it was delicious as always! After that I got to do something I hadn't done forever and that was go and help my dad and brothers check on their calf to see if it was eating and not abandoned by its mom. I LOVE being a farm girl!! It was so much fun to just put on a pair of watering boots and be outside. Riley came along and he had alot of fun too I hope one day we can own some animals, if not we'll just go to my parents! Monday we celebrated Riley's 22nd birthday!! His mom made him dinner and then we ate birthday cake, we kept it pretty simple cause if you know Riley he didn't want to make anyone to go out of their way for him, he is so thoughtful. He got a new dutch oven (which is his new hobby and he's really good at it), gift card to Olive Garden, clothes, and we are getting new bikes!! Tuesday I was able to go out with some good friends and we went to the Britney Spears and Pussycat Dolls Concert!!! It was so fun and I have the best story! So we went to this concert mainly to just go do something so we weren't going to spend a fortune on tickets so we bought nose-bleed seats. So we rode TRAX up town, went and ate at California Pizza Kitchen (delicious), and then made are way over to ESA. We made the long walk up to the very top (literally) and were about to sit down when a worker asked us if we wanted to go down to the floor for the concert?!?!?!? We were a little hesitant at first but decided what the heck lets go!! So we ended up about 10 feet from the stage!! It was so much fun and very entertaining, what a great night! Friday I went to one of my brothers baseball games and they WON!! They have been doing really well with only losing one region game! I'm proud of them this is only the second year they have had the program so they are doing really well! Yesterday I spent the day with my hubby!!! Went shooting guns, out to dinner, tested out bikes down Wal Mart aisles (about peed my pants laughing at Ry) and then played Battleship, don't ask who won. I love my job and love that is gives me so much time off! Now the hard part will come tomorrow morning when I go back! Oh and I SUCK at remembering a camera anywhere we go so sorry about all the pictures...NOT. I will try and get better!

Spring has sprung!!!

WOW!! I just realized how long its been since I have updated my blog...oops!! First off let me wish two of my favorite people a VERY Happy Birthday!! Last week our adorable niece turned four and I can't believe how much she has grown up the last couple of months!! She has been so much fun to have in our family and we love her so much!!! She cracks us up and always keeps us on our toes!! Here she is posing for me in her adorable outfit getting ready for her party!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JORDY PORDY!!! Hope you had a GREAT birthday!

The next birthday just happens to be today and that is my amazing husbands! He is such a caring and fun person I am so glad I met him! We are having a dinner tonight for him and just hanging out!! I always tease him because I am older than him so that makes me wiser...wink wink but he is truly always thinking about me and wants me to be happy and taken care of!! Happy Birthday Ry I love you and hope you have a great birthday!!!

Since spring is here...cross your fingers...we have been enjoying the weather and spending time outside!! We are about ready to put in our sprinkling system and then grass!!! Riley has lots of projects he wants to get done so we'll see how it goes. I haven't been to very many baseball games because they have been cancelled or the weather has been not to my satisfaction but hopefully they won't get cancelled any more! I also think this picture is funny...take a look

Shouldn't the oldest be the tallest...not in my case! HAHA I guess as long as they know who's the boss that's all that matters!! Hope you all had a Happy Easter and bring on the warm weather!
