Last Weekend... and this Weekend

Last week I told you that Craig and I were going to head to the Squeeze Inn for lunch over the weekend. We went and it was DELICIOUS! OMG everything we remembered. We highly recommend this little "dive"! If you are in Sacramento you have to go!
After the Sqeeze we dropped in to visit our friends Keith and Alicia. It's been awhile since we have hung out with the two of them together. We had SO MUCH fun... I can't even tell you! It was totally unexpected so I don't have any pics (sorry to disappoint). It was so nice to see them! We hung out... ate... drank... the usual. I think I built up some abs from laughing so hard!
This weekend we are heading up to Collins Lake to camp. We normally go sand camping and riding somewhere but since we are off to Malibu for Brett and Tiffany's wedding next weekend we decided to stay local. Craig is already there with his parents and Spenser and I will head up after work! I can't wait. I will be taking a ton of pictures of that for sure!
Hope everyone has a happy and SAFE Labor Day Weekend!!!!!

The Squeeze Inn

Last year while I was watching FOOD NETWORK'S Diners, Drive Ins and Dives, I saw a place closer to home than most. It's called The Squeeze Inn (it's TINY and lives up to the name... you literally have to SQUEEZE IN or sit outside). This place is known for the "Squeeze with Cheese" It's a burger that they LOAD with grated cheddar on the grill and it comes out looking like this...
So since craig and I haven't been in there in awhile (it's a long wait to get in the door) we decided to go this weekend. I can't wait to bury my face in all that gooey CHEESE! MMMMM Don't be jealous! =) I will let you know how it goes!

Tiffany's Bachelorette Party Weekend

All I can say is WOW!!!! Tiffany's bachelorette party weekend turned out even better than expected. We took Friday off and headed off to South Lake Tahoe and stayed at the Grand Residences by Marriott. The weather could not have been better. We kicked off the weekend with shots of Patron and headed off to the pool. We hung out, had cocktails and chatted for awhile. Then we headed back to the room to get ready for our first big night out! We went to Cabo Wabo for dinner and had a blast being silly and saying "hey sexy" to everyone that walked by... this was a part of our "scavenger hunt". We got points for every item we performed on the list! This is where the piggy back rides came into play. Theresa got 100 points for asking "Tractor Boy"(AKA "ADHD") to marry her. He said yes and they lived happily ever after. THEN we were pulled on stage at Harrah's for "Party with Arty". We danced our booties off and Arty requested that any available man over 70 years of age come up for a KISS from Tiffany... we got one taker. Then sang "Like a Virgin"... that didn't go so well! After our PARTY WITH ARTY we went to Vex... a nightclib at Harrah's. WHAT A BLAST! We danced until 3:30am. We woke up early the next morning (for whatever reason we couldn't sleep) and went to breakfast only to come back and change into our suits to lay by the pool again. More cocktails and some pizza (the good life haha!) and we once again headed back up to our room and fixed ourselves up for another night on the town. We went back to Cabo Wabo for DRINKS... well more shots than drinks but we "drank" them. Long story short we partied and danced until 4am (at Blu and back to Vex). Pictures are worth a thousand words... you see for yourself if you think we had a good time. There were too many good pics to post one by one sooooo here is a slideshow! Enjoy!!!!!Tiffany said had the best weekend ever with her girls. We were all so happy to be there for Tiff on her "last night out" as a single woman. We could not have had a better weekend. Now we are getting ready for her BIG DAY! I can't wait! I LOVE YOU TIFF!!!!!!!!

Another Busy Weekend Comin' Up!

It really seems like this summer has flown by! Well... that's because it has!!! Craig and I have been going non-stop between weddings, camping, family/friends' get togethers we just can't seem to get any down time. This weekend is no different from the rest we have had this summer... for me anyway! (Craig will get some much needed relaxation!) My friend Tiffany is getting married September 6th in Malibu, CA and I am happy to be a part of her special day. This weekend is her bachelorette party in SOUTH LAKE TAHOE! I am so excited to go and relax by the pool during the days and dance our hearts out at night. I am sure there will be TONS of great food along the way! I really want Tiffany to have the best time ever! She totally deserves it. She has worked so hard planing this wedding! Tiffany... Get ready for the best bachelorette party EVER!
I am so ready for some much needed GIRL TIME! At the same time I am going to miss my hubby like CRAZY! I feel like we have barely gotten to see eachother the last couple of weeks. I will be ready for a "date night" after this weekend. I miss him already!

Family Reunion 2008

Craig and I went to his family reunion this weekend. We took our trailer and camped fr a few days in Oroville, CA (not to far from home for us!) Let me just say that Craig has a HUGE family! We had a blast meeting new people and hanging out with a lot of people we don't get to see on a regular basis. Things got pretty crazy on Saturday night... from what I HEAR anyway! The pictures prove it! I fell asleep a little earlier than I should have and SOMEONE decided it would be a good idea to antique me! Lucky for me the flour never made it into our trailer (where I was sound asleep)! Instead the family had a MASSIVE flour throwing match right outside! These people took ANTIQUING to a whole new level! I could not believe my eyes when I saw the pics! I was so disappointed that I missed out on all this fun! Somehow I still got blamed for the flour fight. Apparently it was MY fault because I fell asleep and they were coming to antique ME! I was actually the innocent one for once... if you can believe that! Hey kids... TEQUILA and FLOUR don't mix!!!! (see below!) From what I saw and what from I hear everyone had a great time this weekend. I am so happy to be a part of such a fun, loving, CRAZY family. I felt right at home!
We had a blast this weekend! We love you all and hope it's not to long before we see you again!

YAY My Hubby is Comin' HOME!!!!

As you know (if you have been reading my recent posts) that Craig has been camping/riding in Oregon with our family and friends since last Saturday. (Yes I have been SUPER JEALOUS!) Well, he is finally coming home... TODAY! I can't wait to see him (the "kids" can't wait either). It seems like he's been gone FOREVER!
Craig is "GO GO GO"! As soon as he gets home tonight he has to head up to his parents' house and pick up our trailer so we can go to our FAMILY REUNION in Oroville. (no our family isn't FROM Oroville we are just camping on the river there!) So we have to pack up and head out for the weekend. No time for rest with Craig! It will be nice to hang out and relax on the river for a few days. The dogs are SO excited to go "CAMPING". And to see their DAD of course!

Cheerleading Practice!

No… I didn’t have cheerleading practice but my sister Cameron and my cousin Megan did. I got to watch them last night. They are SO CUTE! They did a great job. I FORGOT my camera (I know I can’t believe it either) and I am so bummed I didn’t get any pictures. They both did a great job! I can’t wait to see them in action at the first game! Trust me I will NOT forget my camera that day!
It was nice to see all of the kids but I was SO happy to see my sister. I miss her bunches! As most of you know I don’t get to see her as often as I would like. Maybe Spenser and I can take her for ice cream or something soon. I love that little girl like crazy!

The Weekend's Over... Already =(

This weekend has completely flown by! Seems like they all go to fast lately!
I had a really good weekend even though my hubby left for Oregon EARLY Saturday morning and I am already missing him like crazy... I went to dinner with my brother and my friend Jamie and her son Aiden. Then we headed out to the fair to watch the TUFF TRUCK/MUD BOG competitions! Talk about some good ol' fashioned HILLBILLY fun! Good times. It was really nice to see and hang out with some people I don't see too often and my mom and brother! It was a fun and crazy night BUT (believe it or not) I didn't get one picture of the nights events... Just pics of everyone having a good time!

HaPpY FrIdAy!!!!!!!!!

Well here we are… another Friday! I am SO HAPPY that it’s Friday, but a little sad too! My hubby is leaving me tomorrow to head up to Oregon with his parents and all of our riding friends =( I have to stay and work! BUT Absence makes the heart grow fonder… that’s what they say anyway! SO tonight I am gonna make my man a mean MAC AND CHEESE dinner! It’s not going to be any of that OUT OF THE BOX junk! Anyone who knows me knows I am a FOOD NETWORK fanatic and I watch that channel 24/7 (give or take). So I found this really yummy sounding recipe that has a home made mac-and-cheese and on top a sprinkle of crushed potato chips and bacon! How could you go wrong? It’s my first time attempting home made macaroni and cheese but I am feelin’ confident! Wish me luck!!!!

None of this JUNK!
This is more like it!
