Flower Beds

They look great but note to self- next year plant in the spring and not the hottest week of the entire summer.

Busy Weekend!

So last weekend was crazy because we only had Sunday to recuperate from our vacation. This weekend was super busy as well but thank God I had enough energy to do everything I wanted to do!

I went to the Farmer's market and shopping with a friend from France all Saturday morning, my best friend Amber arrived about noon and we planted lots of flowers, went to see a movie, cooked dinner for everyone! Wow- busy day!

It was a lovely weekend though and the front yard is really starting to take shape. I will post some pictures tonight. Pretty comical to see everyone pitching in to help plant stuff!

Back to Normal

Coming back from vacation everyone is asking me-

"Did you hate to come back" or "Did you dread going back to work"?

Actually no- I was ready to come home and am enjoying coming back to work. Our vacation was AWESOME!! But vacation is not real life.

Real life is your own food, your own bed, your own schedule. And I missed all of that.

Don't get me wrong though- I am already looking at where I want to vacation next. :)

Top of the list right now is France, Togo and Greece.

Officially in my 30's

Taxi ride from our ship to the beach

Enjoying the ocean and laughing over the huge fish that swam past me!

The roaring 20's are now gone. But how can turning 30 be so bad when I did it in Freeport Bahama's?

I really enjoyed Freeport- much better than Nassau. The water was warm, the beach was awesome. There were few people and cute shops to explore. The people were really nice including our taxi driver.

Here are a couple of pics to show you how I spent my birthday. First in Freeport and then at the Captain's dinner on the ship.

It was a great vacation full of memories!

All dressed up the night of my birthday for the formal dinner.

LOTS of Confetti

So I got to work this morning and found my cubicle covered in "30" and "Mary" confetti by my co-worker. Haha...I didn't even know you could buy "Mary" confetti! I also had a flashing button for my shirt that announces the fact I am celebrating 30.

What a great way to start my vacation and my birthday week!!

Last week of my 20's

This week marks the end of my 20's. What an awesome time it has been! I would have to say it has been some of the best years and best events of my entire life so far. Here are some of the highlights I can reminisce about these last 10 years.

* Getting to College
* Getting my drivers license (yes I was 21)
* Getting my own Apartment
* Buying my first car
* Having my first real paying job (Jo-Ann Fabrics)
* Graduating
* Moving to San Diego
* Graduating again
* Getting married to the love of my life
* Moving to Ohio
* Buying our first house
* Getting pregnant with our first baby

So I am really not upset to turn 30. It will be great to see what the 30's list will look like. I expect nothing but great things!
