Las Vegas!!!

In 49 days me and two of my friends will be packing up and driving to Las Vegas for a little bit of fun!


We'll make the eight hour drive and be spending four nights here:



We have no big plans made...just doing some shopping at Cowboy Christmas, indulging in a few adult beverages, watching the live broadcast of the rodeo and having a relaxing weekend!

I'm already so excited and have tons of time to wait.  Here's to hoping the next 49 days fly by!

Happy Wednesday!!!

I'm so happy it's Wednesday!  The week is half way over and I can start thinking about plans for the weekend.  I'm not looking forward to making it thru today...Monday and Wednesday are my long days.  I leave for work at 6:30 am and I don't get home from school until 9 pm.  Makes for a pretty long day but only 10 more weeks and I'll be done for the semester. 

This weekend I think will be all things related to horses.  Rodeo's and horse sales are in town this weekend and our family is trying to sell 3 horses and a close friend is trying to sell one.  So we will be busy getting animals cleaned and ready. 

For now I'm off to attempt getting some work done before I have to head off to school.  Happy Hump Day!!

What A Weekend!!

Whew...what a weekend!  I really need to get better about taking pictures but this weekend there just didn't seem to be anytime for that.

One of my BFF's moved back this weekend and it was CRAZY getting her settled...well she's still not settled.  She drove in Friday night (about a 4 hour drive) and got here in the pouring down rain with the bed of her truck full of "stuff" that was at this point soaking wet.  We unload the truck and spend the rest of the evening having a few alcoholic beverages with friends and relaxing...there may have been a few games of beer pong played that night as well.

Saturday we wake up in a freezing cold house and start the day cleaning and organizing.  Oh my word that house was a mess!!!  You see...she moved in with her boyfriend and his buddy and it seems those boys didn't know how to dust!!! 

We live in the country, we wear cowboy boots and jeans...we haul hay and feed horses and get dirty.  Why do I tell you this?  Well, Saturday afternoon as we are cleaning house the phone rings and we are asked to jump in the truck and drive south about 5 miles to help they guys...they've just lost 140 bales of hay off the trailer on the side of the road.

This is kind of what the load looked like to start...except taller.  And more than half of that load was on the side of the road when we got there.  We spent two hours on the side of the road re-loading hay on the trailer.  After that whole incident we decided that a few alcoholic beverages were needed Saturday night as well.  Nothing better than a cold Coors Light after a long day of cleaning and hauling hay.

Yesterday was spent cleaning my house and all of us doing homework followed by hanging blinds at Christy's new house (remember...this house has been occupied by two boys for a long time and they've lived there with no coverings on the windows).  Us girls have decided that their house will take time but we will make it livable.

Not a really exciting weekend...nothing super fun and crazy.  Just a run of the mill weekend for a group that lives in the country and has a laid back life.

She's Almost Back!!

I mentioned yesterday that one of my best friends was moving back to town this weekend and I couldn't be more excited!!



This girl, Christy...the one on the left, has been my bestie for 25 years.  She was my first friend when we moved to town and I wouldn't change a thing about her.  The one on the right, Kori...that's Christy's cousin.  Now this picture is super old...2006 which just means there is definately a need for some new adventures and new pictures. 

With the changes going on in my life right now I think her moving back is the perfect thing for me!!!  I can't wait until Saturday!

This and That

A very random post to keep me going on this new little adventure...

1.  I'm super excited for one of my best friends to move back to town this weekend.  We've been friends for 25 years and it will be nice to have her close again!!

2.  The massive amounts of rain we've been getting for the last 24 hours is awesome.  We needed the moisture and it's a great transition to fall.

3.  The downfall to all this rain...well I work for a construction company and all of our projects are now shut down because you can't work in the rain.  This means that we have employees not earning a paycheck and jobs that are getting behind schedule.

4.  I spent about 6 hours yesterday getting caught up on homework.  I'm hoping that I don't get behind again.

5.  I will spend time this weekend trying to figure out how to add pictures and pretty to this blog.

Happy Wednesday!!
