Weekly Overview

I hope everyone is having a good week. I feel like I have been busy all week but now it's the weekend and time for some play. :) My week has been pretty good the working part has been slow but what can you do. We have had a busy week, we had to take Shane's motorcycle in for some maintenance and then go the next day to get it. I HATE rush hour traffic on 435 highway. I was so stressed when I got off that highway. Last night we had a Happy Hour at our place with some friends and a couple babies. It was a good time I enjoy hanging out with this group and of course playing with the babies. :)
I have finished the book Untamed that I started reading a few weeks ago. I look forward to getting book 5 and beginning that! Look for my post as I begin reading the next book.
A few weeks ago I started working out again so I have been trying to stick to working out at least 3 days a week. I have been doing pretty good. I wish that it would cool down some so Kira dog and I can start walking again. She sure does love her walks.
This weekend should be fun. We did plan on camping this weekend but with the heat we decided that it wouldn't be fun. I don't want to be miserable in this heat and plus it's calling for rain so that would make it worse. We will plan camping again either next month or Fall time when it cools down. I always look forward to the weekend and getting to sleep in some. Tonight we had to go to the store and get stuff for our BBQ tomorrow.  I'm very excited about this and I hope the rain holds off so we can play some games outside. But no worries we will have fun either way. Tomorrow we have some friends coming over to hang out early afternoon till the evening for some drinks, games and yummy smoked Ribs and Pork Butt that Shane will be smoking. I just love me some smoked meat it always comes out delicious! Sunday I'm going to go to lunch with my brother and let him do some driving. I have been trying to go each week and let him get some driving time in so hopefully soon he will be ready to get his license.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and I'm sure I will be posting about our BBQ with some pictures next week!

Saturday my husband had to work from 9am-3pm but I did some cleaning and then we headed over to a friends house for some pool time then we cooked out for dinner. Dinner was good we had shrimp, chicken sausage and veggie Kabobs with Rice. Then for dinner we had peaches warmed up in the oven with vanilla ice cream and cereal over the top. It was delicious!
Sunday we did some errands, I also finished up my cleaning and laundry I didn't get done on Saturday. Then that night went over to celebrate his nieces birthday. She turned 15 on July 15th! It's crazy to think she is 15 wow time flies! We just hung out with the family and had some cake and ice cream.

New Phone!

A few weeks ago I was finally able to upgrade my phone. I was so excited to get a new phone. I had a Blackberry but now I have upgrade to the Samsung Infuse. I'm very much in love with this phone! I'm very pleased with my grade and I have been playing with it non stop. :)
It has so much stuff on it I have barely figured out everything it can do. But I keep playing and finding new things. I'm loving the new phone. My husband got one too for his personal use and he's loving it too! I didn't know how I would like the touchscreen but I actually love it! It's very easy to use! I'm so amazed at the type of picture this phone takes too. They are awesome for a cell phone. If anyone has AT&T and is due for a new phone I definitely recommend this one, you will love it!

 This is the case I bought for my phone. Isn't it so cute! :)
This is a picture I took with my phone at the lake. The sun was sooo bright and this picture came out great!

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I'm looking forward to my weekend! :)

Books: Chosen & Untamed

As you may reminder I have started reading a new book series called The House of Night . I have really enjoyed reading this series. There are 9 books total to this series and I'm already on book #4! It has just been over a month since I started the first book. I have been so addicted  to them it's crazy! They are really good well as least I think so. :)

I finished book #3 over the weekend and realized I never shared that I started reading it. LOL Oops.

Book #3 is called Chosen

Brief summary on what this book it about:
Dark forces are at work at the House of Night and Zoey Redbird’s adventures at the school take a mysterious turn. Her best friend, Stevie Rae, is undead and struggling to maintain a grip on her humanity. Zoey finds herself in the very unexpected and rare situation of having three boyfriends. Mix a little bloodlust into the equation and the situation has the potential to spell social disaster. Just when it seems things couldn’t get any tougher, vampyres start turning up dead. Really dead. It looks like the People of Faith are tired of living side-by-side with vampyres. But, as Zoey and her friends so often find out, how things appear rarely affects the truth…

Over this past weekend I bought book #4. I'm really looking forward to this book! They just keep getting better and better and much harder for me to put down.

Book #4 is called Untamed

Brief summary of this book:
Life sucks when your friends are pissed at you. Just ask Zoey Redbird – she’s become an expert on suckiness. In one week she has gone from having three boyfriends to having none, and from having a close group of friends who trusted and supported her, to being an outcast. Speaking of friends, of the two Zoey has left, one is undead and one is unMarked. And Neferet has declared war on humans, which Zoey knows in her heart is wrong. But will anyone listen to her? Zoey’s adventures at vampyre finishing school take a wld and dangerous turn as loyalties are tested, shocking true intentions come to light, and an ancient evil is awakened.

If anyone is looking for a good series to start reading and are into vampyre's I highly suggest this series!

Livestong Sporting Park

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I wish my weekend was longer. I was not ready to be back to work on this Monday. We had a pretty good weekend though.
Friday night we spent the evening at Shane's dads house and play baggo's (bean bag toss game).
Saturday I got up and clean the house (sounds like fun huh?) not really. That evening we went to the new Livestong Sporting Park. Shane's brother gave us 4 free tickets so we went and took 2 other friends with us. It was a pretty nice soccer complex. We had a good time. It was super hot but we lived and still had a great time. :) The game was pretty good. We didn't score till the very end and there was just a few minutes left so that left the score 1-1. We do plan on going back but maybe in the fall when this heat isn't so bad.
Sunday I went out to lunch with sister. It's been awhile since her and I got to just have some siste-time together. It was a nice lunch. Then I went back and took my brother driving. He didn't do too bad but he does need more practice.

 Hope everyone has a good work week!

Weekend Overview....

I hope everyone had a GREAT weekend and a good 4th of July! We had a great weekend and I really wish our weekend could have been longer than 3 days but oh well back to work I came today. :)

We had a busy fun filled weekend. It was an awesome weekend we got to share with good friends and some family time. I look forward to more weekends like this.

Let's see where do I begin with our busy weekend.....
Friday we had to go pick up Shane's smoker so we had a few drinks with a friends dad while over there, then we went and visited with his dad. He's doing really good for having heart surgery just 2 wks ago. I'm so happy that's he's doing awesome! It was to late to cook dinner so we grab a pizza on the way home that night.
Saturday Shane had to work from 9-3pm. I ran a few errands that morning. Then I headed off to the pool with some friends. This was the first time for me going to the pool this summer. Let me tell you it was awesome and I will be looking forward to more pool time this summer. It felt great with it being so hot outside and having some drinks while cooling off what more could you ask for on a hot day. :)
Sunday we had a BBQ at our place. Shane smoked some ribs and a pork butt. We had a few friends over and hung out all day. We played some baggo's, had some adult drinks and some delicious food! The rain was kind of a hit and miss throughout the afternoon. We were playing the inside outside game. We would go out and it would start pouring so we would have to go back in. We did this about 3 different times and FINALLY the 3rd time it just stopped raining so we got to enjoy being outside. It was a prefect day for a BBQ the weather wasn't too hot or cold. It was wonderful.
Monday 4th of July I hope everyone had a great 4th! We actually didn't plan on doing anything this day but a friend asked us to join her at her sister's in laws house for a party. So we headed over there around 3pm. We had some yummy food, enjoyed sometime in the pool (it sure was hot outside the pool was wonderful), they had volleyball games going on as well. So we hung out there pretty much all afternoon. It was a great time and I'm really glad we got invited to go. Fun times all weekend!!
We got home that night and of course people were doing fireworks. My poor dog was barking at everyone that went off she didn't know what was going on. Poor girl. Ha Ha

Again HAPPY 4TH OF JULY to everyone and hope you all were safe and had a wonderful time!
