Boys & Girls Weekend

This weekend Ryan went up to the "Roundup" with my Dad and little brother, Hunter. The boys had a fun time wrestling the calves down so they could be branded and castrated. Although Ryan came back sunburned and tired, he's already counting down the days until the next time he gets to play "cowboy."

While Ryan was away, I got to have a night out with the girls. It was so fun getting to catch up with everyone! Of the 7 friends at dinner - 5 are married, 2 are pregnant, 2 have graduated from college, and 2 just bought homes. Talk about a change from 4 and half years ago when we were graduating from high school. It's amazing how we can go so long without seeing each other, but when we finally get together, we're able to pick-up right where we left off. It really makes you appreciate having good friends!

Look how far we've come:

All In A Day's Work

Last week Ryan went on a business trip to Santa Clara. He spent the first two days in long meetings and the third day at sea. On Thursday, his group spent the day deep sea fishing on the San Fransisco Bay. Ryan was able to fish by Alcatraz and under the Bay Bridge. His proudest moment was when the group caught a leopard shark! Once again, it was weird being without him but I'm glad he had a blast!

Jessica Simpson Concert

Last night, Jessica Simpson had a concert after the Diamondbacks game. Our friends Tiffini and James invited us to go so we figured it would be a good way to change things up. We showed up at the game around the 7th inning to catch the end of the game before Jessica went on (obviously, we're HUGE Diamondbacks fans). After waiting through extra innings for the concert to begin, we realized that she was performing songs off her new country album. Besides not being huge country fans, we were less than impressed by her long stories between each song explaining what each song was about. After the 4th or 5th song we decided we'd had enough Jessica for the night and left. I'm not sure exacty why we went out of our way to see Jessica Simpson perform live, but I think from here on out we'll stick to watching Jessica in reruns of "Newlyweds."

Rocky Point

This last weekend we celebrated Ryan and my brother Hunter's b-days. To celebrate, we planned a trip to Rocky Point, Mexico.


Ryan and I, along with several of our family and friends, rented a gorgeous condo right on the beach.





While we were there, Hunter and Ryan were able to parasail for their first time. They both had a blast getting to see Mexico from a new perspective.



On Saturday, Hunter turned the big 1-8. I can't believe my little brother is officially an adult! It's weird to think that he'll be graduating from high school this year. They grow up so fast...


Of course, one of the best things about going to Mexico is getting to eat the delicious Mexican food. The food was absolutely A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!


The last night we were there, we bought some fireworks and the boys made their own fireworks show. I've gotta say, I'm a little confused by the show since all of the shows I've seen in the past consisted of shooting fireworks into the sky as opposed to AT one another!


I'm so glad we were able to go to Mexico for Ryan's 25th. I can't wait to celebrate another 50+ years of birthdays with Ryan! Happy B-Day Ry! I love you!

End Of Summer

When we got married, Ryan received a shotgun from some of his friends as his "getting married" gift. After having to deal with me hassling him about not using it for almost 2 years, he was finally able to test it out. To celebrate Labor Day (or the "end of summer" according to our friend Tiffany), we went shooting with some of our friends. After the morning of shooting, we went over to our friends' house for a bbq and more Wii Fit. Although it was WAY too hot to be outside shooting guns, it was fun getting out and practicing our shooting skills.

Wii Fit

Our latest obsession has been our new Wii Fit. For those of you who don't know, the "Fit" is a new game that you can buy for the Nintendo Wii which includes a balance board that you stand on as you play the games. The activities you can do with the board range from yoga to snowboarding to our new favorite, "hula hooping." Besides being totally addictive, the game has proven to be very entertaining for large groups because it makes everyone look totally dumb (see the videos and pics below).
