...and I'll drink if I want to!

So this past weekend was Jesse’s 26th birthday and we had quite an adventure. The family and us started on Friday with a London bus pub-crawl out in Tempe.
The Double Decker London bus picked us up for our drinking masquerade at the Rose and Crown, bar (were I found my new favorite beerJ ) we then went to four bars after that. It was an absolute blast. I can’t say exactly how much we drank that night I know it started with some beers and ended with a lot of shots but I do remember how I felt on Saturday. If someone asked me to do this again I most definitely would.

   Unfortunately on Saturday we were all a little under the weather (* cough* cough *). So I picked up where we left off on Sunday. I started by surprising him with breakfast in bed, then let him watch hockey. I was actually letting him rest for the night ahead.
   We went out for Jesse’s birthday dinner, were I surprised him with tickets to The Foo Fighters concert. I must say apart from an actual music festival this was the longest concert I had ever been too. He had so much fun and I actually found out it was his first ever BIG concert, love poppin that cherry! After the concert we ended his birthday at no other than the Rose and Crown bar, the very place we startedJ. Although I didn’t get my beer, I guess it’s everyone else’s favorite beer tooL.
  Afterwards when the weekend was over and we were coming off our adrenaline rush. Jesse told me that I outdid myself from what I did for his birthday last year. O man now I have some new goals to beat next year!

Till we meet again!

It comes to be a point in life when the little baby you used to know is now a little kid, growing up way to fast. My oldest Nephew recently joined the soccer team, and though he is only 3 years old I know he will be the newest David Beckham of his time.
   He decided he wanted to start playing when my sister took him to see his cousin jr. play for the first time. Now baby Joel has always loved soccer; Jesse and I even got him Mexico’s professional soccer uniform. But getting to watch his cousin play he could help himself to he begged to his mom to play and of course she said yes. They are definitely a dastardly duo out there together. We are already to his third game of the season and so far he loves it.

  I know that at this age you are not supposed to keep score but I’m a little competitive so of course I do; and all I can say is his team has not lost a game yet!

I can’t wait to continue to watch him bloom and grow, maybe he will be a soccer player maybe he will be a pilot all I know is I am looking forward to sharing this great adventure in his life.
Till we meet again

  Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. Not only because the weather changes to cooler but not quite cold temperatures, but also because I consider it the doorway to Christmas, birthdays, and New Years.  The way I love to start my fall every year is by having a pumpkin spice frappuccino from Starbucks, it is not officially fall until I take the first deliciously sweet sip of that wonderful goodness.

            Another reason I love fall is because of the month October, it’s my favorite month, and it is always packed full of many things to do. One of the things I do every year is go to a haunted house. Just recently my sister, brother-in-law, Jesse, and I went to the Nest out at Wild Horse Pass Casino. For any of you who have never been to this haunted attraction and are considering attending; my opinion would be to save your money and go somewhere else. AWEFUL!! But besides that major disappointment there are tons of scary attractions around the great state of Arizona. You can go to big ones like Fear Farm or even small ones that cost about $8.00; most of the time those are the best ones because they are very private and you definitely get a scream for your buck.

  This October I am determined to carve a pumpkin, to make sure this happens I will be buying one at Schnepps farm pumpkin festival, this is another tradition the family and I do every year, to keep us in the fall spirit. Anyone who has children should look into this it is family owned and costs about 12 to 15 dollars.

  And last but not least there is the holidays, we have many birthdays to celebrate in the fall two of which are Jesse’s and myself; and of course Halloween! If you are not sure of anything fun to do in the fall here are a couple ideas of great ways to really appreciate the season and of course the month of October.
·        Haunted attractions
·        Festivals
·        Oktoberfest
·        Pumpkin picking
·        Traveling up north to see the beautiful leaves
·        And of course PUMPKINS, PUMPKINS, PUMPKINS!!

I hope you enjoy the many adventures of Fall, Arizona only gets weather like this once a year, get out and enjoy it.

Craft Money or Bust!

      So I know I haven't been doing this thing for... gosh I don't know MONTHS!! Anyways I figure why not add more to my plate by starting this up again. What can I say reading my besties blog made me decied to start mine up again as well. ( thanks britt ).
    Anywho lots of things going on right now and expecially lots of things building up this week. I am coaching cheer.. yes again... watching a house and two little crazy dogs for a friend. and of course I finally made the decision that I would really like to be a college graduate. Hey even if I cant find a job afterwards and will be in so much debt I won't be able to see. It would be great to have that pretty frame with a diploma in it hanging over my wall.
    So the other night I went on to the ASU website to submit my application for Fall of 2012, and once I got to the end I discovered there is a small fee for them to give you a thumbs or tell you to go jump off a cliff somewhere ( figurativly speaking of course ). Well with Christmas and Birthdays, and Weddings, and animals and everything else that comes up at the end of the year I had no way to come up with the money. So I finally took all my friends advice and started selling one of my crafts that I made for Halloween.
I started selling them for $5.00. I know have determined that I should have probably asked for more but hey what can you do lesson learned. Anyways I thought that if I was lucky I could get 10 people to buy 1 so I could have to the money to apply. 20 of these bad boys latter I think I need to start a building line of mass producers for these bad boys. Well at this point I have 4 that's right 4 done and a long way to go but I still have a week as long as I stay on task it will be good. Keep your fingers crossed that ASU says yes otherwise I will be expecting alot more people to be buying these suckers so I can make somemore income for my little family.  More to come as I get to it. lets hope I can hope on here in another week instead of 3 months!
Till we meet again!
