I’m turning 29! What!?!

Tomorrow is my 29th birthday! I’m not sure what happened there. I was at work the other day discussing my/our birthday (me, one of my techs, and one of our volunteers all have a June 29th birthday… best day ever to be born!)… and very nonchalantly I mentioned something along the lines of “I can’t believe I’m turning 28!” Eeeek! I thought it would at least be a little bit longer until I genuinely started forgetting my own age. But apparently it’s happening… now! I got home that day and mentioned something about it to Danny. He then proceeded to break the news to me, although not all that gently. I am, in fact, turning 29. It’s awesome nonetheless. I love my b-day no matter what number is associated with it (ask me about that in 11 years… that opinion may change…). But I can’t even begin to say how excited I am about 29. It’s going to be a big year. Moving back to California… starting a new job… moving into a home with …

Birthdays and PJ Pants

Happy Birthday to two of my favorite people in the whole wide world! Bethany yesterday and Danny tomorrow! Bethany is finally old with me… and Danny is basically ancient… he’s turning the big 3-0! :) We were supposed to go down to Ft Collins yesterday for a cooking class… but this rain has been so insane the past few days… the highway was closed! Of course we didn’t look before we left, thinking for sure it would be open (yesterday morning was actually sunny for a while), but then we reached the flashing lights and barricade and had to turn around :/ Then we had plans to go to dinner with my pharmacy people (the guys were planning a shrimp-eating contest at Red Lobster)… but the weather killed that too. And of course we didn’t realize that one until we got there either. We walked in, said what party we were looking for… the girl wasn’t sure so we walked around to find them… once we didn’t find them I checked my phone… sure enough, …

My Kindle Nook… or is it a Nook Kindle?

So… Danny got me a Nook for my B-day this year. It’s a wonderful gadget and all… but I am a Kindle girl at heart (he really didn’t understand the difference) :P So I feel like I’m compromising. Instead of giving up my birthday present… I’m working the system and using my Nook as a Kindle. Maybe it’s cheating, but I couldn’t imagine having it any other way. BTW, it took me two and a half weeks to decide what to do about it. I even called my mom for advice. That’s how concerned I was. Now to sew it a cover…

Life Updates

So as you may or may not know, I was supposed to be on a ship right now traveling around Central America on my humanitarian deployment… but that got officially cancelled almost a month ago. And what have I done since then? I really couldn’t tell you! Time has been flying by like crazy! Work has been insane and I constantly feel like I am just trying to keep my head above water. One thing I know is that I finally retired my little ’96 Nissan for a new-to-me ’13 Ford Edge, and I am loving it! I loved my little pink car, but it was time to move on. And although I am now getting half the MPG I was before (filled up my new car for the first time this week and it was painful watching the $$ go up and up…), but it’s alright. It’s worth it for the incredible jump in safety and comfort I now have. Anyway, what else is new?! Danny and I decided to adopt Finn, our 7th …
