My anniversary present from Joe. Love you sweetie!This sign was so random and in a pretty nice side of town so it struck me as ironic and I had to snap a pic.Sara was helping us move (who knew this would be such a frequent occurrence) and I made her put on Joe's head lamp. I mocked him when he started buying them but I have to say they can be pretty handy....and make for funny pics.Doesn't she look happy??My Dad and Glenna sent Joe this King of the Grill Apron that he finally gets to use now that we have a grill again!!! This was pre washing machine incident when he could use both hands to cook.This was the moment I was dreading....1oo,ooo miles means no more extended service warranty on the Beemer:( That means I have to actually start paying for oil changes, breaks, and anything else that goes wrong. 2 days after we hit 100K, the parking break went out and I had to pay to fix it. Booooooo. Knock on wood that is the only thing that goes bad. Hopefully she stays nice and healthy for me so I don't have to shell out any big bucks.And then there are the self-portraits. I don't know what it is but I take pictures of myself....frequently. I can't help it. Easily amused? Vain? Bored? Who knows. But I know I'm not the only one that does this.....right???? :O)
So there you have it. Thanks to my phone you have a random sampling of our lives captured via the Blackberry!!

A little over a month ago we moved....again:) We love the house we are in and just adore the neighborhood. The Encanto District is this historical gem located in downtown Phoenix. I have to give Joe all the credit for finding it because I had no idea it even existed. The houses are all so different and charming with lush lawns, huge trees, gorgeous flowers, etc. You honestly don't even feel like you are in AZ.
Luckily Joe only got a few drops of blood on his favorite Modern Amusement shorts. As he was sitting in the chair waiting to go back for x-rays I took advantage of the paper towels and cold water to get the blood out!!
Do you see any tendons??? Luckily he didn't go deep enough to damage any nerves!
Getting stitched up...no I did not take this picture or else I probably would have passed out. Thank goodness Ryan was with us that night. Not only was he entertaining but he was able to document Joe's pain and suffering for us.
Only 6 stitches...but 4 days later they took them out anyway so that they could do surgery! Poor Joe had never had surgery before so he was a little nervous. We didn't find out until he was there in his hospital gown that they would actually have to intubate him. He was a champ though and handled the surgery like a pro.
Bandaged, doped up and ready to go home!
Here is his swollen and mangled hand a few days after surgery. I didn't get queasy during this whole ordeal until he took his bandage off and we started to clean his hand. I don't know if it was the smell or the thought of me hurting him that did it but I let the nurse take over so that I didn't pass out. I have a hard time with the thought of pain. Just thinking about it makes me light headed.So there you have it. Curses to that stupid washing machine. We glare at it every time we walk by it or use it.
Before we got to see our beloved Brit Brit in concert we dined at the Tuck Shop. It is a hipster spot in Phoenix that claimed family size portions. The food was good...definitely frou frou....but let's just say that we were still hungry when we left so after the concert we hit up In-N-Out!!
Hil and Jaimi looking hot and sassy!! I became BFF's with these gals in 2000 I think. Jaimi and I had a class together at BYU....Drama for Elementary School Teachers. I had a crazy roommate at the time and was looking for a place to move. So I asked her if she needed an extra roommate. She didn't have room in her apartment but her neighbor did so I moved in!!!! Condo Row baby!! 2 Hot Blonde's and 2 Smokin' Brunettes ready to channel our inner teenager
Behind us on stage are the Pussy Cat Dolls! Meow!! They were H.O.T. and they sung live!!
Britney's album was the Circus. So the whole concert followed that theme. AMAZING and a little freaky:)
Britney channeling her inner SlumdogCheck out the packed stadium!! We actually had great lower level seats that we bought the day of!!! Nothing like waiting until the last minute. We were so worried we wouldn't get in. But we were not going to let anything keep us from this show!
Britney whipping those extensions around. Work it girl!
I am so so so so glad that Lyndsee, Chris and Chico drove all the way from Santa Fe, New Mexico to hang out with us!!! We are lucky to have such great friends...even if some of them are scattered across various states.
Lyndsee is the queen of photo ops! I need to learn all of her sassy poses:)
Leslie Grimm and I are surprise soul sisters. We are always amazed how much we have in common. I heart this girl and hope we are friends for life!
Jen Beane is a crack up. This girl can bust a move on the dance floor!
Nicolette Miller is one of the FUNNIEST gals I know! We bonded when our offices were in the same building. She is good people!
Kristen Griffin is a classy, sassy gal and has a killer yoga bod!!
Leslie, Brenna, Me and Nicolette on our Dinner Cruise in San Diego. We had a hilarious dinner conversation. Who knows what it was because whenever we are together we are always cracking up!! All I know is that everyone else wished they were at our table because we were having so much fun:)
Still a little sick but at least I showered and got ready this day:)
Silly Girls. These two ladies crack me up to the point of tears and trouble breathing:)
Waiting to eat at Oregano's. I could eat there at least twice a week and not get sick of it. So if you out of towners ever come to visit us you can count on eating there with us!
How lucky were we to get our mom to ourselves that weekend!
We are all squinting in this pic but I just noticed that we are standing shortest to tallest and darkest to lightest hair....do you think we look a like? Growing up everyone always told me how much I looked like my mom which I gladly took as a compliment. Well, since Sara has been living in AZ I have noticed more and more that she looks so much like my mom. Not to mention they have such similar characteristics. Sara and I don't think she and I look anything a like but we always get a kick out of it when people tell us we do. We don't see it but maybe it is that we both look like our mom but in different ways. Posing outside of Sprinkles Cupcakes. Decadent, Rich and almost Heavenly. My personal favorite is the banana with vanilla icing. Strawberry and Red Velvet are pretty delish too.
My turn to be in the pic"Sisters, sisters...." I sure love this girl. She is my best friend and I can't imagine my life here in AZ without her. She is hilarious and so much fun to be around. I feel so lucky to have her as my lil' sis. Growing up I never would have thought we would end up as close as we are. 7 years age difference seemed huge when we were kids but now we are thick as thieves!Joe was our photographer most of the weekend but here is a sweet pic of him and Mom!! Love them both to pieces!Joe is not flipping anyone off (or flicking as they say in Ohio). Poor guy has had to wear that dang splint for SIX WEEKS. We love you Mom and hope you come back soon!!!
