No longer MIA

So my camera charger was MIA and my battery has been completely dead. So i found my charger and now i'm back in business. Well after i have something exciting to post.

To catch up. Thanksgiving was such a blast. In the morning we went to Gilbert High, the plans were to play football, the field was already taken so we played catch on the side which was still fun. Then we went home and got ready for Thanksgiving dinner over at Steven's parents. The food was so good. Afterwards we played games all day, up until about 11:00 at night.
All and all it was a lot of fun.

I'm a Whoopi Cushion, I'm a Whoopi Cushion

We were WHOOPI CUSHIONs! So much fun. It was a pretty nice night but still pretty hot to be wearing a felt costum. We looked at walmart one night at their costums, I wanted to be a cop and Steven wanted to be dressed in stripes. So Steve picks out a Whoopi Cushion and said lets be this, totally kidding around, and I looked at what he was holding up and i'm like YES we have to be that. His face was like "REALLY". We got some pretty good laughs out of people. It was such a fun night.

We'll start with this story first i guess. So my sister-in-law, Kelli, Steven's lil sister came over the other night to make Chocolate covered pretzels for a pot luck we are having Halloween night. So i saw on a website these really fun and pretty looking chocolate covered pretzels that i've been wanting to make. So we gather up all the stuff and I start melting the chocolate in the microwave. Kelli was making the carmel. I started with the white chocolate. The directions say put in for one minute at a time then stir and continue till it looks done, thats what i did and Steve and Kelli kept saying do it longer its not melty enought, so i did. After a little bit a brown bubbely color caught my attention, I open the microwave and its BURNT. Well the picture below is what i got after listening to them BURNT and FRIED. So we tried again, and this time i was only going to do it for a short amount of time, Kelli then takes the second batch and puts it in, she said if it burns again it will be her fault i said okay. It Burned again, not as bad but def. not useful. Her batch is the picture above.
Here are some pictures of our very creative night.

Lets say we got better and better as the late night went on, we dipped some in carmel let them sit then redipped them in chocolate, then sprinkles then another fun design with chocolate, i know sounds good right, they were so good.

These two trays are our final projects. They turned out so cute. It was so fun. We kept saying over and over, we should open a candy shop. Steve kept turning to T.V. on louder and louder while we cooked and made noise in the kitchen.

Wow - good thing this was pointed out sooner than later.

Whoops! Good job everyone for pointing it out that i was not at a Diamondbacks game i was at a SUNS game. Who does that? Who gets that mixed up. Where did i graduate again........Wow shows i was paying attention. Thanks haha. I'll leave it up since i would look dumb changing it right.

Diamondbacks Vs. someteam that didn't win

My cousin Peg called me yesterday and said Hey, i have an extra ticket to the Diamondback game want to go..heck yes i do. So we met up at the stadium. We had so much fun, at first they were winning by 10 or 12 points so we were talking and catching up. The second half we sat on the lower level with her two friends and thats when the game got so head to head exciting. Jumping up in our seats and yelling and the bad calls, booing, cheering, singing, It was really fun. From where we were i zoomed in on my camera to see if i could see nash, he was injured said some guy behind us but i was able to see huge ol' Shaq i couldn't miss him. So at the end we went into over time, with 5 minutes to go then into another overtime with 5 minutes and we WON! Thanks for inviting me Peg.

Puppy Love

This is our new puppy Paisley! She is sooooooo cute. I love her. We just got her this past Saturday so September 27. She is 7 weeks old and is a cane corso aka an italian massive. I never thought i would ever like to have a dog, until now. Steve has been wanting one for a while but he was mostly wanting a Yorkie and they are way to much. So my friends dog had puppies and gave us one, how perfect! She picked us out the sweetest one. The dog had 10 puppies and ours is number 8 so hopefully she wont grow up to be so big, hopefully she will stay a bit smaller. Paisley is so fun. She is staring to chew on everything! She will drag my kitchen rug all over the house, chew on the couch, try to bit our feet, but since she's a puppy it doesn't do anything to the couch. We got her some toys so she will stay away from our furniture. The first night we got her, we didn't have a kennel at the time so we put her in the bathroom and she whined for about an hour, which i couldn't handle. And im like getting a puppy was the biggest mistake, i told steve. I dont have a kid but its teaching us, you have to make sure your shoes aren't left out, or cords, blankets, everything has to be out of reach.
I thought this was so cute. In the mornings she always passes out somewhere, this picture was in our pile of cloths on the ground, which were clean, while i get ready in the mornings and i looked over and saw her tougne sticking out i had to take a picture.

These are all her brothers and sisters! They are about 6 weeks old here. I thought this picture was so adorable they were all looking over the edge of the tub trying to get out. Paisley is the third from the left.

Shout out to the LoVe of my life...

I thought since Steve never looks at my blog i could put whatever I wanted. jk. I wanted to create a section for him telling him how much i love and appriciate him. Here it goes. I took these pictures two nights ago because i dont have that many pictures of him on here.

16 Random Reasons why I love my husband...
1 - he lets me bite him
2 - he is just as weird as i am, he just doesn't show it as much as me
3 - the only thing i hear him complaining about is that we have no food in the house. never complains about helping me do this or that he is always willing to help out.
4 - never admits he has dimpels, which ALWAYS makes me laugh because clearly he does.
5 - always supports me
6 - no matter how many calls in the morning it takes to wake me up for work, he calls that many times.
7 - he is funny
8 - he lets me pluck his eye brows
9 - he never cares if i go out and buy a little something for myself
10- i love how good he is with both our neices and nephews, he is going to be such a good dad one day.
11 - when we are board he lets me put eye shadows on and mascara that was a big one and he lets me paint his toe nails, only if i take it off that night though.
12 - will leave the house so i can exercise , i dont like anyone near me when i'm excercising.
13- i love when he texts me just to say he loves me
14 - he lets me pick out his clothes and hats
15 - cleans the house and is surprisingly really good at it
16 - is willing to watch chick flicks

I love you Steven Lane.

Express It Vinyl Lettering

I have been doing custom vinyl lettering for over a year now called, ExpressIt. I got my very own vinyl machine for christmas last year. I love creating and coming up with new ideas to put in my own house. I pretty much became addicted . And I know Steve loves when i turn our living room into a huge "vinyl in the making " area, with all my supplies left out everywhere! He even helps me once in a while. Especially this time of the year it starts getting really busy going to boutiques and shows. You can check out my website at www.expressit.etsy.com.

When Nature Calls

This past weekend my mom and sister amber and i drove up to payson to go on a hike. The hike was only supposed to take 31/2 hours total. It took us 5 1/2 hours. And yes it was a hard hike. Really pretty though. We lost the trail at the very end because amber was leading, but we ended up finding our car, thats all that matters. Again love ya amber.

Here is my mom and Amber. Nerd alerts. Amber is sporting her backpack which really she made me carry cuz it was heavier than my fanny pack. So i willingly gave her my fanny pack and carried the backpack. Love ya ambies.

Here i am before trading with amber in the fanny pack. Heck yes i look good.


Last weekend my parents took a bunch of us to Castles'n'Coasters. A lot of us had not been there for over 8 years. We had so much fun. Sicely and I rode about every ride together, she did not care if we were in front or back all she wanted was the ride to go faster and faster as her head is being swung around back and forth she was laughing and screaming. I was laughing cause her head is being swung every where and she's wanting the ride to go faster. (Above) is Steve crambed into a tiny driving space area where his knees are forced into his chest. We all laughed when we saw him. Thanks mom and dad we had so much fun. (oh amber i stole these pictures from your blog, love ya).

So i'm driving home around 7 oclock and see all this lightning and i get home it gets a little darker and then i opened my door shades and out of now where you hear THE biggest thunder crack. To bad i didn't get that on here, then it starts DOWNPOURING, i loved it i love the rain and monsoon season. So i grab my camera and turn it to video and this is what i got.

Best Friends Reunite

I probably could have started out with the nicer looking picture first but oh well. This is Ashley and I at BJ's hanging out. We have not seen eachother for two years!!!!!! We couldn't believe it has been that long. Ashley and I have been best friends since, oh great, i think 7th grade is when we really started hanging out. She has always been the greatest friend through out our school years and after school to. We have always had no problem making eachother laugh over the stupidest things we would do or say. We love talking about how we made baked goods at my house in Taylor, earning money to go to Hawaii we ended up going to Vegas, we sold them at the end of my street, for those of you who dont know, it was out in the middle of no where practically while wearing Huge sumberro hates, and making up songs. Which the second i see her, this past weekend, she positions to re-enact the song, so funny. "Down by the school where we have no money and the lockers are ugly and the gym is scummy. The teachers are gay and they never get paid we love Cheryl Bar " Lets just say its an inside joke. Some of the fun memories we have are , We flew to California together and hung out at the freezing cold beach, ate breakfast in Beverly Hills. Went to Viva Las Vegas with the money we earned from the bake sale. That was a lot of fun, Ashley's First rollercoast was New York New York, i couldn't believe she has never been on one. Tons of memories we have and to come. Oh and here is the ugliest but most famous "dinosaur face". She made me.
Here is a nicer picture of us. A lot better. Love ya Ashley.
