backyard time

we had a great weekend in L.A. for grandma hatch's birthday! diane fed us excellent food the entire weekend and we enjoyed hanging out with family in grandma's amazing backyard...

i feel so lucky to have married into such a wonderful family!

i also feel lucky that my fridge looked like this when we got home! we're down to one grapefruit so it's probably time to head back!

collecting hobbies

many of you know that since i moved to vegas my allergies have gone crazy. i have to admit i've shed some tears as i've had to deal with this every single month. but i couldn't help but laugh on monday when i was at the excalibur show with my coworkers and i had a horrible allergy attack (we think it was the horses in the show). i can't go anywhere without being allergic to something! it reminded me of the movie "the brothers bloom." penelope collects hobbies. she tells them it's because she was allergic to everything growing up so she had to stay inside (they later found out she was actually allergic to the needles used during the test). ha. i wish that was the case for me.


anyway, no more complaining about allergies. i'm off to learn how to juggle chainsaws and break dance. :) by the way, rich and i loved this movie and soundtrack!

memorial day weekend

rich gave me welding lessons. i was nervous but then really loved it and can't wait to work on some new projects. the possibilities are endless when you can sculpt metal!

we loved having aunt diane in town! we checked out the amazing new bridge and hoover dam, ate really yummy food, went to the movies and laughed lots.

we ate breakfast in our backyard. i couldn't wait to use our most recent thrift store finds- the white table and green rocking chair. also i should never buy nutella. it's all i've wanted to eat all week.

oh yeah, we watched some youtube 3-D videos with 3-D glasses. did you know you can do that? neat.

it was so fun to stick around vegas and just relax for the long weekend. we hope you had a great weekend too! it's almost friday again..wahoo!
