New Phones for everyone

On Saturday, My mom, step-dad and I went to get new phones. I haven't had the time to go look at new phones before this, so I really wasn't sure what I wanted to get before we got to the store. There are always so many choices. This time we all got different phones. (last time I got a different one from my parents) Keith got a samsung and My mom got this new phone called juke. It is so tiny and so cute!!! I Love it!

It is a little mp3 player too. And yes it is as skinny as it looks....It is fabulous!

After looking at many different phones.....I finally decided on.....

The Silver Blackberry Pearl!!!! It is so fabulous!!!! I can't get enough of it. I finally got all my phone numbers into it. I am still playing and learning. It is so great though.....I LOVE new toys!!! I can check and send emails. I can im people from it, text message, camera, a navigation program (you know, when it talks to you and tells you - turn left here, you are approaching your destination....I just can't get over it. All I want to do is play with it all day. :)

another busy week...

Hello All ~ it was a crazy week back after my vacations. It was definitely back to reality. I had my cousin's wedding reception yesturday and that was a blast! I do love weddings and dancing! This was the last wedding for me this year (bittersweet...) I have to admit I was getting a little stressed with all the weddings, but I am a little sad for them to be over. I will add some pics of the reception later...I didn't upload them yet.

I am adding a few pics of other random things....a couple pics of the classroom at work. I love it!

We were asked to make boards about ourselves to hang up in the classroom, so that customers could get to know us. So I finally did is of course about italy and it black, white, and pink!

My cousin Katie and I in Mexico for her wedding! She is so great ~ I just love her!

Another random photo of myself from mexico....

world traveler...back home...

So I know I have not written in a very long time. I have been out of town for about 2 weeks now.

First I went up north with the Jones girls to celebrate Betsy's birthday. We just went up for the weekend. We hung out, hiked, had a campfire, ate a lot of food, went on a haunted hayride (not my idea) and closed out the nimrod. It was a very nice weekend.
Then I left for Cancun on Tuesday morning at 5am. My cousin got married in cancun, so we were all going to see her...almost my whole family came. We had about 45 people altogether (family and friends) I think that is absolutely amazing for a destination wedding. I had so much fun! The weather was beautiful and the wedding was gorgeous!!! I thought they all looked fabulous!!!!

I LOVE the Ocean....

We went to Playa del Carmen for a half a day...because I wanted to go to Senor Frogs and my mom and aunts wanted to go shopping. All I really did was drink....
We went to a bar that had swings instead of bar stools...
(thank god I didn't fall off)
Then I got a BIG Ol' MOJITO....yummy
Afterwards, I finally got to go to Senor Frogs...where I got 2 baby yards of a frogbuster. I have no idea what was in it, but it was so good.... :)
Beer in Mexico....
The last night in Riviera Maya....adios....
We got home early wednesday morning because we got stuck in atlanta....and then I left right away on wednesday to go to Texas to visit my dear friend Stephanie. Since this blog is extremely long and I am exhausted since I finally got home today. I am going to leave the address to Stephanie's blog because she wrote about our weekend. She also included hopefully that gets you all up to date and I hope you enjoy the pics!!!!

Funny Story

So I once knew this girl, who has always been a little clumsy. This past Saturday night was nothing different. She was out at a bar with two of her friends. They had not had been out very long at all, but decided to go to a different bar. So they headed down the stairs to leave the bar....when out of nowhere, this girl slipped on the stairs and proceeded to fall down them. (swearing the whole way down them) She didn't want anymore attention to be brought to her so she quickly got up and got out of the bar. As soon as they got on the sidewalk she checked her arm because it really hurt....and a huge bump popped up out of nowhere.

This picture looks like an elbow, but it is a bump on the arm.

So now to tell you who the girl is.....

This ended up being the least of my fall.....I bruised my butt really bad. It is serious dark is as dark as a glass of red wine. It is huge hurts to sit. I am in a lot of pain. The past few days have been awful. My back started hurting too and i was uncomfortable sitting and laying. Like I always say....I bruise like a peach....

So that is the story from the weekend...that is how I entertain Rach for her birthday!
