Ahoy it's a Boy!

Last Sunday I threw a baby shower at work for my co-worker Maggie. She is having a boy in April. The theme was Nautical!
I love the look of onesy's on clothes pins. I found these cute sail boat one's!
I put sea shells around the table and put the party favors on the table as well.
I filled these little pails with hershey kisses and small sea shells, starfish lollipop, and pretty gem pencil. I found them at Micheals.
The mommy was craving a drink so I made Mocktails! Virgin Pina Coladas! They were pretty tasty!
Later the gang showed up and we started playing games!

First a crossword puzzle.

My favorite game was the "dirty diaper game" guess what type of chocolate is in the diaper! So funny!
Also, playing the "crying baby game". Hold the baby with one arm and use 1 hand to get as many clothes pins as you possibly can!!
Gift opening time! Always fun to see what the new mommy gets! It was loads of fun!

Camping trip

So Presidents Day weekend Dave, myself and Todd ventured out to the desert to chill out and get away from city life. It called for rain so Allen, Patricia ended up not wanting to go afterall. Lisa and Erin were sick so it was just us 3. That's me with my favorite drink COKE!! I love camping cause I get to be like a guy and junk out not wear make-up and drink beer! I'm girly but once and a while I like to chillaxe.
This is where Dave and I slept. It was cozy with plenty of blankets inside and protected us from the rain that came in overnight. It wasn't bad at all. We camped near some bushes so I could hear critters jumping around. I got to see some jack rabbits but they were too quick to get any pictures of them. I also heard coyotes howling too. Kinda creepy but cool too!
The fire kept us nice and warm. Dave had brought some yummy chicken soup we feasted on that with some gourmet garlic bread. Washed it down with some rum and cokes.
The moon was incredibly full and yellow. This pic does not do it justice. One thing I love about camping is seeing all of the stars you would not be able to see in the city.
We love our Toyota Landcruiser but she's old and can't really handle rough terrain. So we're gonna sell her.
The boys. I liked Todd's furry hat, it looked warm!
Night shot. Yes it was pitch black dark everywhere around us!

Morning time. No rain the sun was shining but pretty brisk out. Thank goodness for my LL Bean jacket. Good brand!
Dave heading out.
Todd and Dave going for a ride. I stayed behind and read Twighlight for hours. Ahh...such delight.
Later we went shooting. I need to get some more practice. I look like I'm sticking someone up! LOL! FREEZE Scumbag!
Take that! And that!! It was scary shooting but I want to feel more comfortable just in case there is an intruder in the house. I don't want to ever feel vulnerable if I don't have to.
My camping must haves: LL Bean parka, Burts bees lip balm, Stella's, and of course a great read like Twighlight! Can't wait to finish it!

Two bucks

I'm at Nordstrom Rack like ALL the time on my lunch break and I happen to stumble across these Jessica Simpson shoes. I tried them on and they just look so cute. They've got a very classic look to them, except for the platform part. Platforms get a bad rap. They look very uncomfortable but, really they give your foot more stability. I don't really wear heals very often anymore and when I do I can't wait to get them off. You know what I mean...the painful torcher a woman must go through to look good! But I have to say that I wore these on Friday and I could totally dance the night away with these baby's on!
Oh and the best part was they were two dollars! They were on clearance and I had a $20 discount for opening up an account. Not too shabby!

Valentines come early

I got a surprise in the mail from Dave for Valentine's Day! My very own Dooney and Burke slim wristlet! Perfect for my Id, compact, lipstick and money for a lightweight night out on the town!
I also have this red leather tote that Dave gave me a couple months ago! It's a great on-the-go bag that is easy to get in and out of!

Dave gave me this one too about a year or so ago! It's a great bag with lots of pockets and it's great leather!
I have never really had good, brand stuff before until I met Dave. I thought that I would never get things like this but I deserve it! Shucks!!
Happy Valentines Day! Heck I try to celebrate Valentine's all February!

An Affair To Remember

Last night as I was laying down watching TV resting, I began to see this American Classic, An Affair To Remeber. I have heard so much about it but never got the chance to see it. I absolutely loved it!
For those of you who haven't seen it. It is about two people who are in relationships with other people and they go on a cruise and spontaniously meet. They start off as friends but end up falling in love. Then they agree to meet up at the top of the Empire State building if they still feel the same feelings as they did on the cruise. She ends up getting hit by a car they day they were supposed to meet and he waits for her all night to show up. It's a very romantic movie! I loved it!
