Happy Thanksgiving Eve!!!!!

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving a day early because I will be gone tomorrow! We are off on our Thanksgiving camping trip with friends. I just wanted to let you all know I love you and I hope you have a happy and safe holiday! Remember what you have and be thankful!
I am thankful for my family and friends. I don’t know what I would do without all of you! You make life worth living! And my “kids” of course =) XOXO!!!!!!

Slow weekend! (that's a good thing!)

What a nice, relaxing weekend. It felt so good to sit at home all day Saturday and Sunday and not have to leave! I did go grocery shopping Saturday morning (early) to beat the Thanksgiving rush. I am so glad I did! After that all I did was stay home clean a little (very little) and cook! Saturday night I made carne asada tacos… well Craig helped =) I can't take all the credit. I made homemade guac and pico de gallo! SO GOOD! Sunday I made breakfast for us and Spenser. Later I made lasagna for our Thanksgiving camping trip. We had to TEST it out to make sure it was ok to bring =) It’s perfect! Now we have a ton to get done before we leave! We are soooooo excited!
Here are a couple cute pics I took this weekend of our "kids"

Friday is finally here!

Can I just tell you how stoked I am that it's Friday! That's nothing new! I live for Fridays! I am off to have a cocktail after work with a friend then home to make carne asada tacos! Maybe I can get Craig to help me! I am sure he won't mind. And of course we can have more cocktails! Well... probably beer. I can't wait to have me a Sunset Wheat. I got them at BevMo last weekend and haven't even had ONE yet. It's so good. It's beer that tastes like it has blueberries in it! Maybe a girly beer but Craig liked it too... so there!

A lovely night together!

As you know, Craig and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary last night. It was such a nice night. I got home to 2 red roses (one for each year!) and a really sweet card! We had a nice quiet dinner at our favorite… yep you guessed it CASA LUPE! We stopped and got a movie on the way home and relaxed for the rest of the night. It was very low key but we spent it together and that’s what it’s all about!
I am a lucky girl to have such an awesome husband!!!!

Happy 2 year anniversary to us!!!!

Wow… 2 years already? I can’t believe it! Time really does fly. Two years ago today we were probably still sleeping at this point (in tradition… Craig is probably still sleeping at this moment! LOL) but getting ready to say our vows and spend the rest of our lives together! A day we will never forget! We were married in South Lake Tahoe, CA on a gorgeous November day! The weather couldn’t have been better. We were afraid it might be cold and snowy but it was perfect! (See picture at the bottom of my page!) Craig and I are going to have dinner at our favorite place tonight. I can’t wait. I have to get my work out ON after work and head home to get all dolled up for my man! Do you think he will get “dolled up”? =) We’ll see!

We had such a nice weekend but it just wasn’t long enough for me. I could use a couple of extra days! I guess I will get those next week for Thanksgiving!
Friday night Craig and I stayed home and made some jerk chicken with pineapple salsa and Caribbean rice with pineapple chunks and black beans. MMM So good. I think it was even better because Craig helped! It’s nice to cook dinner together. Saturday I went to Roseville with Tiffany. We only stopped at the mall for lunch at Pluto’s (my fave!). We were on a mission and the mall wasn’t it (if you can believe that!) Our first stop was BevMo where they were having the “buy one get one for 5 cents” sale! We got some goodies. We had to make a quick stop at Target… that was interesting! Our next mission (after lunch) was Trader Joe’s. I have wanted to stop there for awhile now. I am always hearing what good stuff they have, so I made it a point to get there this weekend. That was the main purpose of the trip. I got some pre-made fondue, organic sour dough bread, fire roasted salsa, organic tortilla chips, almond butter and some organic wheat wraps. The salsa is so good… I haven’t gotten to try any of the other stuff but I will let you know!
We went to Jay and Andrea’s for UFC Saturday night and I am sad to say Randy Couture lost to Brock Lesner =( I heart Randy. Better luck next time. It was a good fight though. We had a great time!
Now it’s time to plan our anniversary (tomorrow) AND our annual Thanksgiving trip! Yippee!!!!!

Friday has arrived!

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love a Friday. I love 5 O'Clock on Friday even more! So the day is finally here. We are going to kick back and relax tonight. Tomorrow we are going to Jay and Andrea's to watch the UFC 91. Randy "The Natural" Couture vs. Brock Lesner.
GO RANDY!!!!!!

What a morning... already!

Wow for a Tuesday morning... Veterans day I might add... it's already been a crazy one! Whew! Well at least that first hour flew by! Hopefully the rest of the day goes just as fast just maybe not as wild!
So yesterday was my dad's 51st birthday. The first birthday ever I haven't called or seen him. It's heartbreaking to say the least. I had the hardest time with it. I am sure I am the bad guy and I "ruined" his day and he is "disgusted" with me but I have my reasons. I just wish things could be different but something tells me that's not going to happen any time soon. I am just glad that day is over =(
On a lighter note... one week from today is my 2 year anniversary with my hubby! This is always a crazy time of year so I have no idea what we will do but to be honest I would be totally happy making a yummy dinner and vegging out for the night. We just had his birthday this past weekend (as you can read all about in my previous post) AND Thanksgiving is right around the corner. We will be spending that holiday camping with some friends. SO I have a lot to do to prepare for that!

Craig's 31st!!! Recovery required!

We had a great weekend! We had a surprise party for our friend JoAnn to go to at a local restaurant on Friday night. Saturday night was ALL about Craig! We went to the Happy Viking for dinner and way too many cocktails! The birthday boy had a little (a little is an understatement!) too much to drink! Between all of the different beers he tried (Happy Viking has 55 beers on tap) and the “birthday shots” people were buying for him he was hurting later that night and well into Sunday! I am happy to say Craig is feeling much better today! I don’t know if we will be visiting the Happy Viking any time soon! Craig wasn’t so “happy” LOL!
Here are some pics =)
Friday night first...

Craig's turning 31!

Craig is turning 31 this Saturday (November 8th to be exact!). This time last year I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to plan a surprise party for his 30th! (actually I had it the weekend before so that he wouldn't suspect anything!) It's hard to believe it's already been a year.
This year I think we will keep it low key and probably go to dinner with family and maybe I will surprise him with a confetti cake =) His fave! I got him a couple of lttle surprises but we just got a GINORMOUS 52" TV and Direct "HD" to go with it so he says that was his gift.
I can't wait to celebrate with him! We better not be out too late... he is getting old =)
Check out the cute cake I got him last year...

Bday cake anyone??
