How long did you date? One year!
How old is he? 24
Who is taller? He is just a little taller- hehe. He tries to say he is WAY taller!

Who can sing best? Neither of us can sing. Its fun to both be horrible and just sing together
Who is smarter? Depends- He is so smart when it comes to anything working with your hands, house, tools whatever. He also read the newspaper which makes him an expert on the world (wink)... I think I'm kinda smart with other things- like common sense...

Who wears the pant? He wears the pants, I hold the belt... You can't go anywhere if your pants don't hold up:)

ahhh working out

So who out there LOVES to work out?
who loves to get on that treadmill or elliptical for 30-60 minutes a day?
who likes to feel that "burn" (you know that feeling that your legs are going to fall off and you no longer can feel your toes)
does anyone hurt so bad the second day that they wonder if they should just stop exercising and lay around and be one of those people that start to look like the food they eat?
I read some of my peeps blogs or hear others talk- Seriously am I the only one who doesn't like to work out? I don't know what it is- Okay so I shouldn't say I dont like working out all together because I don't mind walking, hiking in certain areas, swimming, running in my neighborhood, playing on my punching bag... That kind of stuff is fun for me when we do it just to have fun not necessarily to get a workout. If we end up feeling that "burn"SUPER but I guess I don't like TRYING to workout. I have been going to the gym after work and before school 4 days a week for a month now! Okay for those super Lady's out there that have done this for years and years and love it. Please- this post is not for you. I completely admire you so don't get me wrong-
ANYWAY- I have tried to mix things up by doing weights, then the elliptical, the bike, different weights... blah blah blah. I have yet to start "enjoying" it. I think what has also brought me down is- where's the results? Eating better- exercising- why are the inches not falling off? I see commercials and I see the six packs- where is my six pack :(
If you know me you know I'm completely IMPATIENT. (I need to take a patience class in school next semester- do they offer those?) So by being impatient I want to see results NOW. I understand it takes time but hey a month is time! That's a lot of diligent hard work that I would like to see in the mirror.
I think its funny because out of no where I feel like running around the block a few times. Running up the mountain or just running from my car to the house! When I wonder down stairs I see my punching bag and get the urge to get crazy with it for a little while. If I plan my punching bag work out or running routine I go crazy and the fun is lost. What is that about? Am I the only crazy workout person here? Please give a girl a little advice!

Retraction - Retraction!!!!
I am sorry to all my blog stockers because I have told you a farce!
My bestie Robin is 23!!!!

Is laughing good enough?

Its now Thursdee and my anniversary is fast approaching. I was going to be the super best wife and write my hubby a secret love note everyday and make his lunch and cook him breakfast... Well that lasted Monday. I started Monday. I'm a slacker- lets say more a loser! I did pull through last night and after a LONGG night of school I made him pork chops. That makes a good wife right? Okay so ill never be anyones dream of a wife but I keep striving everyday to be better and I have this obsession with being Ms. Full House... Hmm. okay so full house didn't have a women other than Becky who came later in the show but still isn't a head of house holder... Grrr.. Bad example.
well what this post was originally for was to say at least I keep my husband laughing- AT ME- not with me. Seriously I really cant do much but I usually make a full attempt!

This is me trying to be brave in Korea. My nieces talked me into going on this thing and I almost ripped both their arms off and I screamed loud enough the whole park heard me!
We all know Ryan and his Fam. are outdoor-zee. Well I am trying to be. I actually became a pro at catching a fish, unhooking it and caring it back to the group without touching it once! When it comes to gutting it- I guess you have to touch it and as you can see... I'm NOT enjoying it.
I have these weird things that get me soo excited and over joyed. I saw Mr Weenie mobile and couldn't stop following it. I made Ryan chase this thing while I was leaning out the window trying to get its attention. I just had to hear the awesome horn. After about 15 min. we finally caught up to it. Although Ryan was a little peeved I made him get off the freeway and chase it around town when we had somewhere to be, He kept laughing at how happy and excited I was about a silly Weenie mobile.
So Ryan was really getting the aching to camp. I was so busy and didn't want to add camping to that weekend. I felt really bad so I tried to make a mini camping experience outback! Don't you love our little BBQ sitting on our patio table? We roasted mallows and watched the stars! ahh... It was so fun.

While in Vegas Ryan tried to teach me how to make your tough really fat. He does a really good job at it- even though it actually scares me.. Seriously one of the ugliest things I have ever seen but it still makes me laugh. So sitting in the restaurant I was trying soooooo hard. He took like 50 pics of me trying and never succeeded! He was seriously rolling on the ground because I was sooo determined to get it right.
Soo I have decided that even though Im not super wife and I have neglected a few little things I still make the boy laugh so that's better than a super boring wife right?
I hope these pictures don't hurt anyones eyes- I know they are rather frightening to look at but now you see what my hubby sees all the time :)

Birthday Girl

Happy Happy Birthday Girl!
One of my bestys Robin has turned the big #22
She is one of the funniest people I have ever met. She keeps me rolling everytime we hang out.
Robin and I meet many moons ago while starting at American Express together (tear)
We have been through some tough times together and have moved many floors apart. Its really hard at times but with the commitment we have- we pull through.
Oh My. Robin is such an amazing person and has been through so much in her short 22 years. I really admire and look up to Robin. Cant wait to celebrate tomorrow!
Happy Birthday!
PS. Robin doesn't dress like this everyday-

Hubby part 2

- Love to cook and makes amazing dishes. Since I have been in school he had dinner ready every night when I come home.
- He is always willing to help clean. When we do a big overhaul clean of the house, I like when he cleans the bathrooms because he gets down and dirty. He gets every corner and spot there is or ever was. I don't have that much patience. I keep on top of it but he does the deep cleans!
- Ryan is so dedicated to his family. Not only me but my side of the family but esp his. He has this incredible respect for his parents, sister, brother, aunts, uncles and esp his grandparents. I have never known someone to have experience's and stories like he does with his family.
- He loves to help everyone
- Out of no where he will hug or kiss me and tell me how much he loves me
- He tells me how proud he is of me and we both thank each other all the time for working so hard to provide for our family
- He will do the sweetest things out of no where like get me flowers or buy me a card
- Ry loves our nieces and nephews and is so sweet to each of them. He really cares deeply about every aspect of their life
- His work is completely unmeasurable- he will work as much, long, wherever you need him.
- His heart is really a heart of gold.
I could go on and on about Ryan. He is such an amazing person and I am the luckiest person alive to be married to him. Ryan loves me unconditionally. No matter what has ever happened to me or whatever I come with he completely em brasses it. I cant imagine my life without him!

Just a lil about my hubby part 1

As our anniversary is fast approaching I feel I need to speak a bit about my significant other.
What a man he is! I cant believe 2 little yet amazing years have almost passed since we married. I should prob save this for our Ann. blog but ill do it now- a little preview. Some background on US-
We first meet years ago when I was a wee one! I just moved to my sister Alana and Ben's house. They recently got custody of my jod and I... So it was at church- he was 16 and I was 13. I wont go into much at this time other than the fact I totally fell in love with his devilishly good looks yet quickly got turned away when I found out he was a stuck up jock! I give him a hard time about that all the time. We somewhat got back in touch a few years later but I was in a relationship and NOT interested in him. Years later we started to talk again and after a few months of "begging" I finally agreed to go out with him. Since we have been married Ryan and I have grown up and experienced so much. We have come along way with not only responsibilities and adult life but with each other. We have so much love and dedication to one another I think someone should write a sappy movie. (Ill star in it)
Of course there is not always bed of roses, PS I love you's and Romeo and Juliet's but we work so hard EVERYDAY to capture those little moments that bring you into your real life fairy tale. Our dreams are growing so much- we have so much passion for so many things and we love to share our passions with each other. I am so lucky for my Byan. He is the reason I am me today....

This is my sad attempt to take a cute kissy pic of us.

Hello Goodbye... part 2 of 2... or more...

After the PBR we headed back to the hotel. That's the time we were caught in the middle of a high speed chase which ended right in front of us when the car smashed head on with another cop car. It was pretty intense! We made it back to the hotel safely :)
We lounged around for a bit debating whether to go back out or not- we were both sooo sleepy. Since we were in Vegas we decided it was our obligation to head out. We hung around the casino a bit, walked around some more and then headed back to the karaoke again for some more fun. Some of the same peeps were there again so it was fun to see them again.
The next morning we had a yummy brunch and headed home! We got a little bored in the car and had fun with the camera...

lil taste of what we love

This is the 3rd year we have made the trip to Las Vegas. We love the PBR and no matter how bad our trip is once we get to the stadium we always have a blast! This year was no exception. The riders were awesome, the bulls were great and the entertainment was-like always- hilarious.

Hello Goodbye... part 1 of 2... or more...

Goodbye, 70 degree weather, buffets galore, strange yet hilarious folk, shopping, gross mirror hotel room, dirty streets, scary high speed chases, lack of sleep- VegasHello, rain, cold, work, school, homework, home cookin, Harley, soft CLEAN bed, long hot bath, milk- HOMEBack from Vegas.. We had tons of fun yet we are sooo happy to be home. Yes its always a great get-a-way yet somethings you can see too much. Like dirty hotel rooms, gross food and almost getting killed in a high speed chase. Okay no we were not running from the cops but someone else did and they crashed right in front of us! ahh...
Here is a little Vegas Tour...

Here is our scary mirror room! Get your mind out of the gutter- It was scary not fun. It was very unsettling feeling like someone was watching me sleep :)

Love old signs like this- its the fun Pepsi men!

Some website written in the sky

The celing of the Belagio! Ah this hotel was really pretty but not as INCREDIBLE as I thought it would be. I like the Wynn better.

We stayed at the Tropicana. It was not the nicest hotel but it had the best swimming pool and water falls EVERWHERE!

So we drove down Friday night- Getting there around 8 PM. Checked in and immidiatly got conned out of $40 from some time share gang. This guy talked so fast and so crazy that I lost the $40 without even knowing what was going on. As I finally got out of his crazy grasp Ryan was like are you serious- what was that? We both walked away feeling like fools and confused- At least we learned to stay away from those vest peeps at the beginning- we were dogging them the rest of the weekend! So after we got into our room and settled a bit we headed the streets. We hung around the MGM for a bit then came back over the the Tropicana to lose some more money- in the slots this time. Around midnight we started heading back to our room when we saw Karaoke!!! Hello- Midnight in Vegas with the drunks doing Karaoke. So we sat around for a few more hours laughing or tails off. I thought of going up there but Im more of a dancer than a singer so I thought- umm.. Not drunk enough to sing but if a dance version of Karaoke starts ill be all over it.
The next morning we headed to the streets-

Vegas could use more of these all over the city! My feet swelled up after our first day.

Wondered around the Bellagio-

They had this new car that they are coming out with on display! It was awesome. Had everything from night vision to bullett proof. The back looked like a living room! I want one- and it starts with a K so there is K stuff all over it- It was made for ME>

Ryan order this regular burrito and MONSTER burrito came out. It scared me a little.

This is a cool pic but Ryan was really looking at these scary crime scene peeps under that decor bridge thing cleaning up something in the H2O.

Got ourselves some drinks that lasts pretty much all day! I love Coyote Ugly Bar. I got mine in a super cool boot- Ya know sporting the PBR. Ry got his in a football. Sportin- SPORTS!

After our long walk I needed to spoil myself with some new shades. Yes these are the new thing! I think they are totally ME. Doesn't Ryan look like a clown. HAHA.. you have to be something special to get away with these bad boys.

After our fun shoppin day we run off to the PBR
