We are going on vacation. We've tried going to Hawaii twice, and have never been, so we're determined. No, we're not going to Hawaii, we're going to St. Lucia! Everything's planned, it's really going to happen. We're leaving tomorrow morning...early. I'll post when we get home. Have fun in the snow everyone!

It sucks!

Yes, that's right, but in a good way. Ever since we got our cats about 4 months ago, my vaccuum has been getting clogged. It wasn't picking anything up, and I'd have to de-hair it often while vaccuuming. After not vaccuuming for awhile, we splurged and bought a Dyson, after my sister's recommendation. (They also have cats) I am in love. It is amazing. After vaccuuming one room I already had to empty it. It consisted mostly of cat hair, which made me sick to think that we'd been living in that for so long! Anyway, I highly recommend them. It's one of the best investments I've made; not far behind my house, and washer and dryer. Here are some pictures to intrigue your mind and gross you out.

Here's a picture of the cute cards I made tonight. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to be the recipient...

This is what it looked like when we decided to stop.

Thawing out out lunch


Let's take a break from all the sadness this year has brought to us so far and reflect on one of the last days of last year. Our long awaited snowmobiling trip came and went so fast. The company was great, but the weather, not so much. It snowed the entire time, and although we stayed warm, at one point it was a white out and we couldn't see 3 feet in front of us. Luckily we had a guide and he led us safely, and slowly back to the lodge. We ended up quitting about an hour early. Ryan was bummed because he didn't get a chance to "play." He hopes to go again next month.

What a way to start the new year part 2...

Apparently our storage unit wasn't the only thing to get broken into. Yesterday, we went around looking at everyone elses locks in our community. Lo and behold, about 6 others had been clipped or ripped off the door. Our friends upstairs (refer to part 1) also got camping equipment and some other things stolen. Walking by my car on our way up the stairs, I noticed my car seat was all the way laying down. Looking closer I realized, once again, it had gotten broken into. Again, they attempted to steal the stereo, but couldn't. They took the faceplate, my car charger, some Cd's, and everything out of the glove box and console which wasn't anything per say, just lots of papers, car and insurance papers. Luckily, the accused were smarter and got in without actually breaking my window, which I'm very grateful for. We called the police, and of course, they just filed a case, but nothing can really be done. This morning I got in my car to go to work and it wouldn't start, didn't even turn over or make a sound. I didn't have time to look at anything under the hood, not that I would notice if anything looked askew, so I took Ryan's car to work. My bet is they stole something from the engine. We are so frustrated. This is the 5Th time in a year that we've been victims of break-ins/burglary. Our association pretty much doesn't care and says the door is our responsibility. Don't worry, we'll be at the next meeting.

What a way to start the new year...

This morning I was getting ready to mop the floors. Ryan had put the bucket in our downstairs storage unit so I went down to get it. It still had our paint brushes and rollers in it full of water, so I decided to let him clean them out we he gets home. Walking back up to our house I tried the door and it was locked. You know that panic you get when you know you're in trouble? I checked 3 or 4 more times just to make sure. Realizing I was in my slippers and jammies, didn't have any keys or my phone with me, I thought of what to do. We don't have a spare key hidden anywhere for the car or our house. Let's see, I could call my dad, but wait, no phone. Standing on the front steps, I ran up 2 flights of stairs to my neighbors house. Luckily, she was home. Embarrassed, standing in my pjs at her front door, she kindly let me use her phone to call Ryan. Then, she drove me to the airport to get his key. Lesson learned: We need a spare key.

P.S. While I was looking in our storage unit, I realized our pad lock wasn't on the door. When I looked inside I also noticed our luggage wasn't there, and also our tent and sleeping bags were gone!!! After this whole incident I called Ryan to see if he had misplaced the pad lock. He hadn't, so I informed him we had been robbed...again!! I'm so tired of being burglarized. Maybe we can blame this one on the Association and get a new door...

And the answer is...

If you take the first letter of each word, place it at the end of the word and read the word backward, it will be the same word.‏

I only had one guess. Maybe next time?

There is something unusual about these eight words. See whether you can figure it out: assess, banana, dresser, grammar, potato, revive, uneven, voodoo.

I'll post the answer tomorrow. Good luck!!

30 Years

and running strong! My parents 30th anniversary was on 12/27. We celebrated by taking them out to eat at the Olive Garden. Afterwards my mom took my sisters and me to see "Enchanted." We surprised my parents by making them a wedding video, which we've been planning for about 4 months. It was a great hit that brought all to tears. My parents are amazing. I love you Mom & Dad!!!
