So So SOOO Much Fun!!

We are having a blast with the Halles here! I was planning on uploading pictures tonight, but it is getting late, I have to work tomorrow, and my battery on my laptop is getting dangerously low. I think God is telling me to go to bed. ;-)

We didn't go to church today, and chose to have homemade b-fast tacos. We tried chrizo, and LOVED it! We bought 9 more links to have in the freezer!! Very yummy.

It was a beautiful 75 degrees here today, while WI had 7-8 inches of snow to shovel. Mark and Cindy were not missing it one bit! We headed downtown to Central Market to listen to the Jitterbug... something..? It was a free concert and was pretty good. The main singer reminded me of Meghan Joy from AI.

Tomorrow I have to work, from 9-3 or so. My parents and Kathleen, and the Halles are heading downtown Austin to the Bob Bullock Museum. I am sad to not be able to go, but we will have the rest of the week. So I am super excited!

We laughed all night long! It was awesome. I wish they could move closer! hee hee.

Last night with the Grosheks was awesome! We showed Dave and Debbie Mario Kart on the Wii, and for never playing it before, they were awesome! It was fun to have dinner with them too. You can't go wrong with Chuys!

Tomorrow, I will upload pictures, since I won't have any from tomorrows adventure.

And the company rolls on in... :-)

We are meeting the Halles and the Grosheks at Chuys tonight. It is one of my favorite places ever to eat, and the fact that it is Mexican ;-). I am so excited for company. I always love having people over. They are both from Wisconsin... people from home!

I think the Halles are staying for a week! It will be so much fun! We don't stop laughing when they are here. They feel like family for sure. I will post lots of pictures, if not on here, then on facebook ;-)

It was cold here this morning, I was in jeans and a sweatshirt. brrr. Now I am in capris. Gotta love Texas!

I am sure that my blood pressure is sky high.


I saved the world again.

do not fear.

the end.

Rain Rain GO away..

So I do love rain. When I do not have to go anywhere. But yesterday, I got a call to babysit, and now I have to venture out in the pouring, cold rain. Gross. I hate, hate, hate, driving in it. Do not like it at all.

the end.

Birthdays and Bible Study

Happy Birthday to Daddy! :) We are going to meet him for lunch today at Red Robin. He gets a free lunch ya know.

Then tonight we have Bible Study. I actally got it all done! Whoo hoo for time to do things. :)

I am babysitting tomorrow and then the company starts Friday. I am doing pretty good on the school work!

The weather is beautiful! A bit windy, but still warm nonetheless.

The neighbors got a new Shitzu puppy yesterday. His name is Bear and he is sooooo cute! He is only 2 pounds or something crazy like that. Gracie was so cute as a puppy! I can still remember when we got her! Soooo cute.

I am working on school all day today, and surprisingly, I am excited for it. I won't ever take for granted time anymore. haha.

A Night out!

(does anyone even read this? oh well. It is fun to write it! And, I acutally uploaded pictures)

We started out with heading to Chuy's for dinner.

me and Kathleen:

Mom and Dad:

Then we went to Amy's ice cream. My dad's friend recommended it. It is good. Sort of like coldstone and just as pricy. I don't know if it would be my first choice to go back or not.

Next, we headed a little further downtown to check out South by Southwest. It is a big music fest down here. Sorta like a non-christian version of lifefest. lotsss more beer and since it is austin, way more weirdness. We didn't do anything but drive by and people watch. oh yes, and take pictures ;)

Here are a few... I think they are pretty funny and self explanitory:

and last but not least. We ended the night with Willy Nelsons wife:

Lunch out!

I cannot tell you how nice it was to not have to work today! That along with the beautiful 80 degree weather has made my day amazing. Kathleen and I drove up to GT to the new Firehouse subs and had lunch with Jake and Kelly. It was so much fun! Another reason homeschool is so amazing! We are able to do that, regardless of spring break! ahhh... Windows open, which I am sure my nose will be paying for later... It feels good.

We are having the Isbells over for dinner tomorrow night, so Kathleen and I are making homemade pizza. We are making the crusts today. I think we have 6 done right now, I don't know if we will continue making them or not. With the company all through April, it would be nice to have them on hand in the freezer.

I am off to work on some more school! Too bad WI is getting snow right now. :(

Alright, alright...

I lied. I'm sorry... it has been a crazy day, and I don't have pictures up.
I could do it right now, but I don't feel like it. haha... I will hopefully get to it tomorrow. I have school to catch up on, and company comin tomorrow.

I was up until 1:00am last night, tossing and turning, so I am heading to be very soon.

I am so excited that Betsy recieved the package today. Since it had been almost a week, we called the place we mailed it from and asked what was up! The lady said it could take up to 30 days. Can you even believe that?! I haven't ever heard it that before. It wasn't a huge box either. Kathleen had her baby afghan in there, I had put the bath towel I stitched, and we had three outfits in it. :) I forgot to take a picture of the towel before I sent it :(

Weekend Fun

I am so, so, SO excited for this weekend! We are heading to the border to visit friends from Wisconsin. Very fun stuff. We leave Friday morning and come back sometime on Sunday. Just a weekend getaway for the girls. Dad is staying here with the doggie :)

I have to work tomorrow. There won't be a dull moment for sure.

I slept in way to long today. It really wasn't my intention. I was up for like 2 hours in the night and then must have shut off my alarm instead of pushing snooze. OOPS. So, I have to work my tail off to get all my school done before church tonight. We are probably going to be there early again for Kathleen's pp stuff..

It is acutally pretty chilly here today, rainy and 45 degrees... brr.. I think jeans and a sweatshirt and come hot tea :)

Fun Sunday.

It was very hard to get going today. I woke up this morning, and my phone said 6 am! AH. I went to bed around 12 last night. It acutally was 7, my phone just hadn't reset yet. Still way too early ;). I think tonight will be an early night.

This week will be busy yet again. Tomorrow is babysitting in GT, then come home and go back to GT for Bible Study. It is friend/family night tomorrow, so my parents are coming along. Tuesday we have to babysit for the MOPS steering mtng. Then Wednesday is Church. Thursday, I babysit again and Friday morning we head to McCallen!!

I am really excited for this weekend. I think it will be fun and good to get away ;) Plus we always have a good time with Larry and Florence. I am hoping to get alot of school done in the car. Must remember to pack Draminine. (today we went for a drive to the country, and it was quite a bumpy road!)

I finally, finally finished Katie's baby gift. I feel so bad that she is 3 weeks old and I haven't gotten her gift to her. Life has just been tooooo crazy. I am so excited and happy with how it turned out! I am hoping to get it mailed on Tuesday.

I am going to work on some Bible Study and school work. My bedroom and bathroom desperatly need to be cleaned. some other day, i spose...

I am finally getting it through my head

That it is ok to stand up for myself and I need to do that more often. I have really been struggling these last few weeks.. Alot. I feel guilty about saying no. and I can't do that, I really can't.

I have always known that I have the best family out there. But, I really do. haha. My daddy is always so extremely comforting and calming. Even if he has no compassion and sympathy whatsoever. haha. My mom is amazing. I really am thankful for all she does. And I don't care what anyone thinks. I have the BEST sister in the world. She puts up with me, when I am a pain in the butt. The best sister ever.

So anyways. I am starting to take action of my own life. I don't and will not let other people run my schedule for me.

That was me talking to myself. just a fact.

the end.

10 days?!

So, I am updating my blog. It has been ten days since I have 'blogged'

I want to upload some pictures, but my dad put them all on a external drive, and I have no clue how to get to them. So next time I will have to put pictures up.

I haven't really done anything out of the ordinary lately. Beth Blair has come and gone. It was too short of a visit. We are having a bit of company in the next few months. It will be busy, but way fun!

On Friday, my mom, Kathleen and I are headed to McCallen, TX to visit some friends from WI. It will be fun, plus, it is a 6 hour drive so I will be able to get alot of school work done! YAY!

I have been sooo busy with work and school. It just seems like there is no time for me anymore! oh well..

Right now, Kathleen and I are watching tv show and I am working on schoolwork. We are also making Chilli-Lime tortilla chips. YUM!

Well... tomorrow is church. and then we will come home and I will work on school, then Monday, it is work. (my days got changed this week and next...)

la de da.
