New Year Kicked Off Right!

Yesterday was my most wonderful husband’s 25th birthday, and we celebrated by taking an extra long weekend and heading to Vegas with some friends of ours. It was Chris and my first time going ever, so The Grangers were the perfect pair to break of our Vegas virginity seeing as they’ve been a million times and even got married there!

We walked around way too much, drank some beers, gambled a bit, and had a good time. Here’s some evidence.

Played a game on the way where we had to guess the artist and song names that came on the radio, needless to say Chris and I failed 🙂

We got back late Saturday night after a long drive and a few stops at some outlet stores 🙂  Sunday was Chris’ birthday and I woke up and made him breakfast and asked him what kind of cake he wanted. He said banana, chocolate, and caramel. This is what I came up with:


I can’t drive 55

This might be kind of weird, but I don’t think I have ever driven out of town (over 30 mins?) by myself! I never really have had to is all.  But, yesterday I went on a little roadtrip up to Fresno all by my lonesome to see some pretty awesome friends.

I was able to gittle a little peakage at this new little man that has recently come into this world. So excited for my friend and her little family 🙂  The rest of the afternoon I hung out with Sarah & Jimaie (and John!) and well, our plan was to thrift/go antiquing buuut we ended up at Target (duh) and Old Navy. I was excited because I found a really cute dress at Target for a wedding this weekend, our Target definitely didn’t have anything cute. Score.  We also stuffed our faces with Mexican food. Nom.

Sarah drove us around town in her new car that smells amazing.

We had multiple photoshoots in Target.

We colored on the table at dinner, because we’re 8.

So I got home kinda of late last night (10:30 pm), and had to get up at 6:30am to drive another few hours away for work, ALONE! It was a really pretty drive and I got to trump around in the Mojave desert. There were some pretty flowers and I saw some rabbits and squirrels 🙂

Morning drive.
