So this is my happy birthday to me! I received 3 of my 4 boxes today! I bought an extra camera battery, and the brand new photoshop elements with my leftover business money. I got all this scrapbooking stuff and my soon to come baby legs (for my business-I am not announcing anything)with my birthday money. Seriously, I know it's sad-but I shopped all day online when the school was doing testing, and picked out all my goodies! Who knew that the shopping would be just as much fun as getting my box? Who knew that 1 little box of scrappin stuff could make my day-well I guess all of you who know me could predict that!
Enjoy your hobbies!
So....after a few requests of posting what our place looks like-here's the first floor. I will show the upstairs when I get a chance to photograph it when it's clean :0). When you walk in there is a sitting room (with the clock and stars), then a hall with a 1/2 bath, then the open kitchen-dining-and living room. Our furniture is pretty hodge-podge, but all I can day is thank you to grandparents and family who like to give us free things! The first pieces of nice furniture we have bought are these black leather couches. I love how modern they look, and surprisingly they are pretty comfy, but so slick that you slide right out of them. It has stopped us from crashing on the couches though :0). Next piece to buy-a lovely brown leather king sized bed-I am currently saving up! Wish me luck!!!! Eric and I will hate moving from here unless we get something new with as much space and a garage! We pay a pretty penny for this place, it's teacher housing though so we only get 1 year in it (it's cheaper than market value here even at $1200/mo, the others in the area that are similar are around $2500-3000/mo), but it's only 1 year old and so much bigger than anything we have ever had, that we feel we are really lucky-even though the money was quite a shocker!
Warm homes for all my friends!
Enjoy the warmth if you've got it!
This game vs Kemerer was painful to watch. I felt bad for the boys-they were working very hard, but Kemerer was quite possibly twice the size of most of our boys. We were on defense most of the game and just couldn't seem to convert anything into a first down. The fact that it started snowing the day we played didn't help, as our field acts like a sponge for any moisture, and it was freezing cold-needless to say there was a lot of fumbles. Bummer deal, but maybe we will do better this Friday in Saratoga! Good luck boys!
Happy games to all my friends!

I was out doing a photo shoot this afternoon (yesterday's weather didn't cooperate!) and as I was on my way out I stopped to take some pictures of this horse around sunset time-when it decided to check out the insides of my car! Soooo funny, but I'm not a big fan of horses. I mean I think they're beautiful, but they kinda freak me out because they're so big-thank goodness this one was nice. Yes, that is him inside my Pilot-next to my light switch-hahaha, only in Wyoming :0).
Close encounters for all my buds!
Happy birthday to me! I skipped out on school and went with our friends the Nelson's to the Pinedale Varsity v.s. Mountain View. WE WON, and will be going to the regional tournament for the first time in a long time. Although there was a game delay and a little rain-the game was definitely worth it, so thank you boys for the birthday win!!
