Ahhhh .. Friday at last. This week has seemed to drag on and on, but I think its because my schedule is not as busy. I miss spending afternoons in the shining sun at the ballpark, but oh the things that are getting accomplished. My house is staying clean, I'm cooking more, and my husband is not complaining. I’ve managed to work out a few times this week, get a haircut, and the laundry is all done and actually put away. Usually it just sits in the basket for a few days before it gets put away and then by that time its almost time to do laundry again, so its just better to leave it there until the next batch is done. Kinda makes sense right?
The weather has been lovely, with abundant sunshine and warmth too. One of the perks with being able to work from home is sneaking out to the patio during my breaks to soak in the sun. This keeps me going throughout the day, cause if you know me, then you already know that sunshine is what moves me in life.
And speaking of work, I need to post a disclaimer here. I work for a company (which will remain nameless) that has some strict guidelines for their employees who like to blog. So it's been brought to my attention that I cannot say anything inappropriate, nor can I be abusive, hateful or threatening in any manner cause this could reflect badly on my unnamed company. I do not want to break any rules here, cause they so kindly deposit money into my bank account a couple times a month. So just to follow the guidelines outlined in my employee handbook, I will say that the postings on this site are my own and do not represent the position or opinion of any other person or business. Now that I've gotten that out of the way .. there is this one person I work with I would love to talk badly about and boy do I have stories to share... but since Jeana reads this blog, I wont elaborate. ::: giggle :::
We are fans of the good ole Denny’s. We kinda love their pancakes, they always seem so fluffy and full of yumminess. On a recent road-trip we stopped by the first one we located on the GPS (we pronounce it gyps), and we had yummy pancakes indeed. Although we also came out with a prize....
You know those glass machines with claw like mechanisms full of stuffed animals, well I always challenge the husband to win me one after I choose the one I want. Sometimes its a waste of $7 for trying to win that dollar store stuffed animal, but not this time. I picked out the colorful bear and with his first shot and only 50 cents later, we have ourselves the colorful bear. booyah. Oh yes, I strapped him in and he was along for the ride. Don't you judge me.
On our road trip, I got some pretty shots of the Oregon scenery. Guess we need that 9 months of rain to green up everything?
Indeed, it's beautiful .. but do we really need so much rain to make this happen?
Happy Birthday to my husband! Another year older and wiser of course.
We celebrated in style by heading over to the sports bar with the fam.
The husband, Mikey & Mae. (Lindsay & the Uncle in the background)
Steve & Mom.
Mom & Dad.
Lindsay had a game of pool going on.
Kev was getting his drink on.
Video poker anyone? Dad & the Uncle jumped in on that. We still have not won the million. I say we cause if they win, its really ours not theirs. Right?!?!
You know, I'm not a regular sports bar kinda gal, so the future sister in law, Mae was showing me how it's done. Guess you don't need a glass, just add a straw to that pitcher of Coors Light. Thanks for the tip! :)
We learned that Mikey likes to sing Paula Abdul around the house, I'm thinking he got a little embarrassed that we all know that now. Got any more secrets to share Mae?
The father & sister.
Good times we had. Happy Birthday my husband!
Hope you all have a great weekend planned with sunshine, Fathers Day celebrations & more. We are sooo finishing the trailer this weekend, and tonight we are going out to celebrate the anniversay. Happy times.
