Hot Air Balloon

Chris & I got to have a short ride in a hot air balloon. It was tied down, but we still went up high enough to say "holy wow"!!! This is something I would love to do without being tied down.

Mountain Fest 2008

Chris and I have been going to Mountain Fest these past couple days. We've got to sit and listen to some really good bands and a couple really bad bands. lol The weather has been perfect, (my shoulders are burned!!) the drinks have been cold and more still to come.
Here's a few pictures so far. Hope to have more tonight. Kansas plays tonight!!! Biker & Biker Bitch!! lol One crazy kid on a motorcycle!!

It's finally Tuesday

I've been waiting for this day to come for a month. Chris comes home!!!!
Everything was going well and I get a phone call telling me that his flight from TX to Pitts has been cancealed!! UGH I also got a phone call from the airlines telling me that he won't be flying out until tomorrow! NOOOOOO
Finally got a hold of Chris and he was in WI but... he had to change his ticket because by the time they got in they didn't have enough time to catch his next flight. He was supposed to by here in our house around 7:30 PM and now with all the changes he will not be home until closer to 1 AM!! I'm so ready for him to get home!!!!
Sitting here watching the clock and the time is not moving fast enough for me.
But... tomorrow is our 20th Anniversary (our church wedding, Monday was also our anniversary. That was the day we were married by the Germans) and have made plans on going out celebrating our special day and also this weekend is Mountain Fest. So we'll be hopping on our harley and have some fun there. Saturday we will be going to see Kansas in concert. This time I'll be taking my camera and will post pictures of our fun days.

Feel better now that I got to vent a little. :)

The cleaning bug...

has attacked my house!!! The 2 little ones went back to Ohio to Grandma's, so I thought I would take advantage of it and get my house clean. When I say clean I MEAN CLEAN!!! Not just your normal everyday picking up. I'm moving things, getting on my hands and knees and throwing things away!! My livingroom is done and I have to say... it looks bigger!!! haha I'm working on the kitchen today and looks like tomorrow. Starting to look good!! :)

So this means no scrapping or much computer time this week. I have a sketch from Creatively Yours sitting on my desk with the pictures printed off and everytime I walk by my desk it's screaming for me to sit and scrap. So... you never know I just may cave and do this awesome sketch!!! :)

Ok back to my kitchen for a bit before I hit the sack.
Thanks for stopping by! ")

Finally home!

We finally made it back to WV. It was a long drive, stuck in traffic. BLEK It took over an hour to move 4 miles!!!

I'm tired and going to call it a night.

The van passed!!!

WOO HOOOO I'm so excited that my van passed it's inspection!!

Today the girls and I drove around checking out our houses that we lived in, passed the school that Jenn & Garrett went to, and stopped in to see a couple of friends.

Today was a lazy day for all of us. The whole time we've been here it's been nonstop.

We gathered all of our stuff to pack the van in the morning. Was going to pack it tonight but the rain came and hasn't stopped long enough for us to do it. We will be heading out first thing in the morning.

Van, "butter" & movie night

Today started with me calling my little brother to come help me with my van. One of the reason why the kids and I came down was to get my van inspected. (yes I still have NC tags living in WV. Military remember) Anyway my check engine light was on and I knew the van wouldn't pass because of it. So this is why I call little brother. (who worked on cars where I bought my van) We took it down to Advance to get the code read and cleared, found out that my problem was the Catalytic converter. So I bought one and found a place to put it on. All good right?? Wrong... now that I cleared the code I have to drive it for about 50 miles or so to clear all the "red flags"! UGH!!! I just want my van inspected!!! (it's not really due until August, but I know that I won't be able to come down in Aug)
So I drove it out to my sisters new house, which was about 40 miles and then Jenn & Ash took and drove some. I'll take it out tomorrow morning and drive it some and keep fingers crossed when I take it in to get inspected.

We went to my sisters new house for a cookout. Had fun and ate way tooo much.
The two little ones stayed there for the night and my 3 teens and parents came home to watch movies.

"Butter" & movie night, why "butter" well because our popcorn had about 5 pounds of butter on it!! Big joke lol
We watched 27 Dress and Fool's Gold. Loved both of them. If you haven't got to see those 2 movies go rent them!!

I think the kids & I may stay one more day!!!

Shopping trips

Today we did some shopping!!! First we dropped the kids off at the skating rink and off we went to hit the stores.

First stop was a yummy Deli for some lunch. We couldn't shop on an empty belly!!!
Bought LOTS of paper at Hobby Lobby. We don't have a HL in WV so anytime I come down we have to go. The kids don't understand why I have to buy MORE paper. They say I have enough, well we all know that you can NEVER have enough scrapbooking paper.
Then to Kohls... the girls both picked out an outfit and then we all met in the purse section. For those that don't really know me... I LOVE TO BUY PURSES!!!! So I taught everyone (including shoppers that wasn't with us) how to pick out a perfect purses. Shopping for purses tip #1, to make sure the one you picked is the right one... you have to pull out all of the paper thats in the purse. lol (yes we made a BIG mess!)

We spent alot of time shopping in Kohls that we didn't get to go anywhere else. It was time to pick the kids up.

For dinner... Mom and I made homemade egg rolls and fried rice. Everyone came over for dinner and the kids got to swim some.

Another fun night!!
Tomorrow is the big cookout here at moms and on post is the Wynonna Judd concert and fireworks. Can't wait!!!

Fun day in NC

Today we met everyone at Olive Garden for lunch. (we always have lunch there when we come to visit it's our fav!!)
After spending time visiting with everyone, we dropped off the boys to the wall climbing place and us girls went down the street and have pedicures, nails done and eyebrows waxed!!! Fun "spa" day. The only thing that was missing was sipping wine and eating strawberries!!!

Stopped at KFC to take dinner home and spent the rest of the evening watching the boys swim in the pool.

We have another fun day planned for tomorrow. We've been taking pictures so i hope I'll get to upload them tomorrow.
