“…pure randomness.”

9 Sep

Remember that time I said I would be better about posting this year and it turns out I am a total liar?  I do.  And I am so ashamed.  It is like I blinked and literally half of the year is gone!! Where did it go?

Let’s see….there was:

I had Another Abnormal Pre-Skin Cancer Spot Removed

Horrible to have stitches in the crease of your hip…not ideal for sitting…

Gina’s Bachelorette Party in Cancun, Mexico

Our Trip to Africa

Absolutely the best trip ever.  I want to go back right now! (I will post a more detailed blog, possibly multiple blogs, about our amazing experiences in Africa.)

We Bought a Boat

Boat and Fishing.png


Our new boat (Joseph seems to think it’s just his boat) and the fish we’ve caught on it.  Notice Joseph’s and Gina’s large Red Fish and Mom’s massive trout…Yes my fish is tiny but it was the first trout ever caught on the boat so it had to be documented…and no, I didn’t keep it.  It would’ve been bait before it was a keeper….

My 10-Year High School Reunion

Work Trip + CrossFit Games in California

Had to take a work trip to California so Korey, Neva, and Gina decided to go with me so we could go to the Crossfit Games and support #TeamDensity and Crossfit Overtake!

The Olympics

beer-olympics-2016

We had 2 sets of Beer Olympics this year.  One at Zachapalooza (Zach’s birthday weekend) with Teams Texit, South Africa, Jamaica, and Native Americans and One at Neva and Korey’s with Teams Germany, South Africa (year we reused, don’t judge me), Brazil, and Jamaica and we can’t forget the USA Ref who took his role very seriously…

Flooding in Louisiana

louisiana-flood-2016

One of my co-workers and I drove 50 storage bins to three members of our team that had their homes destroyed by the flooding in Louisiana. The devastation was so sad.  If you can donate something, anything, many people are still in need of a lot of items.  

Sooooo many birthdays

birthdays-2016

Big Kat, Neva, Kaitlyn, Paige, Joseph, Me, Chloe, Jessica, and Gina….and these are just the ones I caught on camera…

and all kinds of random things in between.

random-2016

Mom adopted a dog that found her and named her Lady, we did a Walk for Autism Awareness, Bald Eagles apparently visit our neighborhood, our friend Tanner Kloven got a radio station gig and you can listen to him on 103.7 KVIL if you live in Dallas or on the Radio.com app, Chloe had a dance recital and sooo many more events that I just don’t have pictures of…

I know I say this alllll the time but I really am going to try to be better about posting more often.  I used to post during my lunch break but now that I work through lunch, I can’t do that anymore.  I will figure something out and get better!  Thanks for sticking with me! Love you guys!

RIP Deputy Darren Goforth

4 Sep

By now, I am sure all of you have heard about the tragic death of Deputy Goforth.

I heard this on the radio and wanted to share – please show your respect for this man by driving with your headlights on today.

His funeral was held at 11am today and was televised.

It’s so sad that ignorance took this man from his family and that the men and women serving our nation have to live in fear of being attacked for doing their job WHICH IS TO PROTECT ALL OF US (and yes, that includes all of you stupid people, blinded by ignorance, who lack respect for authority and think the law doesn’t apply to you).  What is our world coming to?

Thank you to all of our service men and women.  Some of us still care and appreciate the sacrifice of what you do.

5 Month Recap

28 Aug

Ok seriously, March 12th?!  That was the last time I posted.  Guys, you gotta hold me more accountable!  It’s really putting a damper on my posting since I can’t do it during my lunch break and I had to delete the app off my phone because the stupid thing keeps saying “storage full.”

Speaking of “storage full” messages, I have a confession.  I didn’t accomplish my goal of a-picture-a-day because my stupid phone hates me and my life.  I can’t wait until I can upgrade this puppy and get the most storage available.  Although, I have a bone to pick with Apple.  I NEVER asked for or even USE the pointless apps that take up all of my precious storage and they don’t let me delete like Passbook, Tips, Newsstand, Apple Watch – oh don’t even get me started on Apple Watch.  I DON’T HAVE AN APPLE WATCH!  WHY WOULD I WANT THE APP?!?  Apple, this is why your stock is sucking, amongst other things…

So what have I been doing in the past 5 months that was so important that I didn’t post a darn thing on here?  Funny you should ask…

We celebrated my Grandma’s 91st birthday! (Technically this was the week of my last post but I didn’t post the picture).

My beautiful Grandma at 91 years young!

Joseph and I celebrated our 1-Year Anniversary!  It’s the paper anniversary so what did we do?  Went to Vegas and spent plenty of paper.  Our goal was to WIN paper but that definitely didn’t happen so spending it should count, right?  Sure

We stayed at Caesar's Palace

Joseph and I booked a 2-week trip to Africa for next year with my parents!

Obviously I don't have any pictures since we haven't gone yet but check out my awesome Passport Mugshot. The guy wouldn't let me smile and made me put my hair behind my ears. In case you were ever curious what it would look like if I got arrested, here you go!

We had 10 other weddings, yes TEN, not including my brother’s or any before March!  I didn’t know I even had this many friends, much less that many getting married!

weddings galore!

One of the weddings was in Riviera Maya, Mexico so we made a fun little vacation out of it!

And I had a spot removed from my arm and just got the stitches out yesterday!

Progression of healing: Days 1, 5, 10, and 14 (the last one was right after my stitches were removed)

I am sure I missed a few things here and there in the recap but 5 months is a lot of stuff to go through.  Hopefully I will remember that and won’t wait so long til I post again!
