Life Lately

Because I am soooo bad at blogging about random, daily happenings and things that go on regulary--here is kind of a mix of life happenings lately.

1. Scout--my sister in law's doggie
2. A little lizard I made friends with on a hike
3. Windmills heading down Highway 62 in Desert Hot Springs, CA
4. Chicken--I couldn't decide on 1 seasoning so I made 2 with lemon pepper, 2 with chicken grill rub and 1 with just garlic salt, onion, salt and pepper. They were delicious!
5. My friend Randi and her daughter, Melody--such a stinker!
6. The crafting/coffee table Randi and I were painting. In this pic, we had just finished taping a design on it. We painted the table white so the wood would still show through the design.
7. Me cowgirlin' it up in Randi's backyard
8. Birds waiting for their birdseed in my boss' backyard
9. Me...with bangs that are too short, lol. I can't wait until they grow in a bit.
10. My nightstand that is piling up with books that I need to read--I just can't get motivated lately.
11. Orange, sparkly finger nails! I painted them orange and put glitter as a top coat. I normally dislike things with glitter on them--but I love wearing glitter on my nails!
12. This is the closest our bed EVER gets to being made...usually it's just a big pile of blankets and pillows.

Hope you had an amazing weekend! Any plans for next weekend? Me...uh, not too sure yet but I plan to do a little shopping soon--I must get ready for school and internship!

Celebrating An Old Friend's 26th Bday

In February I got a chance to reunite with an old friend--we've known each other for 10 years and I never once got to celebrate her birthday with her. I was super excited to be a part of the celebration this year--Happy 26th Randi!

She enjoyed herself and I was stoked to finally be able to celebrate with her. Randi is in the Air Force so she travels A LOT and has never really stayed in one place for very long.

We are hoping that she is finally happy here in the desert and will make this home for good.

2 Year Anniversary & A Long Overdue Vacation

The 2011-2012 school year ended Friday, June 15 the for me--and then my husband and I were off on a week-long adventure that we so desperately needed. We haven't had a vacation in years--not since 2009 when I graduated with my BA, lol. Plus, we were celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary and 10 years together. It was wonderful!! Here are just a few photos of our adventure (ignore the grainy-ness from taking photos with my cheap cell camera died 2 days into the trip):

Scrapbooking our adventure...

Baby Black cute!

Ready for the day...

Boarding the train in Durango, CO

Ready to head to Silverton, CO on the train

Again, please ignore the grainy-ness...they look awesome small :)

Anyway, things are looking up for the two of us--just getting ready to dive back into school and prep for my internship coming up in September.

Hope you are all enjoying your summer and staying cool!

More posts and updates coming soon. I plan to update a few things around here beore September!
