Lazy Saturday

Well, thanks to Suzanne's blog, we decided it was tent time at the Leach House! The girls LOVED it!! We woke up early and built it while Justin slept in. We made muffins and had a girls only breakfast in the tent this morning. Great fun!!


Tonight Brynn got all of her friends together and asked me to take a picture of her. She loves getting her picture made.


Tomorrow is the big day.......49ers vs Dallas!!!! No expectations, just high hopes.

Birthday Fun

Last Friday was my birthday.....whew..... the big 2-9!!!

Warning: You are about to read what every old person says

I just don't feel like I am really 29!

Maybe because I work with a lot of teenagers or am I just in serious denial, but it feels like yesterday when I was 16.

Okay, onto the good stuff. Justin took me on a romantic getaway to Possum Kingdom for the weekend. Ain't he grand!!

We get there and get all spiffied up for a nice dinner only to go out exploring and find that every restaurant is closed because it is after 9. BUT there is a bar down the street that MAY have a grill. Hey, this will work for me because I am STARVING. We head over to the bar and it is so crowded because they have a band playing. There are people everywhere-none of which are eating. We ask and YES they do have burgers. We find a table, order our food, and watch as we stick out like a big, sore thumb. The burgers were amazing! Seriously, the best burger I ever had. We decided that this probably wasn't 'our' crowd and we were just slightly over-dressed so we headed back to the house.

Bright and early we get ready to go on the lake. Yes, we are stupid.


Now, I know we look like we are going skiing, but noooooo we are going boating. We wanted so badly to go out and see all of the beautiful houses but it was 46 degrees when we unloaded the boat on the lake.






We tried to make the most of it but we were FREEZING!! We got back to shore and decided to just drive and look at houses. WOW! There are some amazing houses. It is now about noon and we decide to just head to his parent's house and see the girls. So, our "weekend" was actually about 22 hours. It was so fun and I swear we laughed the entire time. I think the girls got tuckered out at their grandparents house as well.








Top 10 signs you are old when on vacation you:

1. Decide that a crowded bar with a really good band is 'too much' for you and you would rather go back to the house and go to bed.

2. You are in bed by 10:30.

3. You are wearing sweaters and heels at a bar.

4. The one morning with no kids you are still up and ready to go by 8:00am

5. You realize that you actually have to eat breakfast now so you won't get sick later.

6. You pack Pepto Bismal just in case for your romantic getaway.

7. You're scared that you won't be able to sleep since it isn't "your" bed.

8. The highlight of your trip is looking at houses.

9. You feel lost without cable and are missing your nightly shows.

10. You miss your kids and head home a day early.

Maybe I really am 29!!!

Sleepy Girl

Last night Justin came and got me out of the living room with the well-known prase, "Go look at your daughter." This usually means something pretty good has happened. She had been asleep for over two hours so I could only imagine what she had done. Apparently she had decided to get up and play for a little while, rearrange her bed, and then crash out on the floor. Poor girl!

I guess this is a 49ers post????

Work has been crazy lately. Last week I barely saw my family, let alone found time to blog.

This week my parents are out of town and so I have a weird work schedule to be home with the girls during the day.

Just needed to vent my frustrations with my team. I am watching the last minute of the 49ers game and boy was it a doozy. I thought we had it and then a STUPID play may have cost us the game. It is now 4th quarter: 29 to 24 Arizona winning.

GRRRRRR.........

Oh wait, we are starting to actually look pretty good........ need to watch (52 seconds left)

HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 1st and goal with 20 seconds left in the game.........

I love my niners again!!!

I am about to be sick with nervousness......

2 seconds left and we are reviewing the last play........Lordy, that was a close one......

Still reviewing......

I am sick...we didn't get it in. Stupid play. I don't see how I haven't woke up everyone in this house with my anger. Well, another loss under the belt.

I didn't mean for this post to be about the niners, but dang that was a close game.
