Summertime and the Living WAS Easy!

I have been a horrible blogger lately!  Oh well, I'll never be able to keep up with everything!  Steven and I had an awesome summer.  We worked and worked and worked, but it wasn't selling alarms!  This was our first summer together that Steven didn't do alarm sells and we loved every minute of it.  Yes, we missed out on seeing really good friends and living in a new place again, but it was so nice to stay home! 

We didn't go on our big Mexico vacation because of all of the violence, etc.  Instead, we stayed in awesome AZ and visited quite a few lakes in the process.  We spent almost a week at Apache Lake and had a blast.  Unfortunately, the camera didn't make it out alive.  It accidentally ended up in the cooler and lets just say water + our Sony touch screen camera don't mix well.  So, needless to say I don't have any pictures from that trip!  Here are some other lake pics including my work "lake day".  Yes, my job IS that awesome.  


My first time trying wake-surfing and I loooved it!

Steven's bro Wes.  He thinks he's all that and a bag of chips on the wakeboard!  He's really not he's just better and stronger than the rest of us... ;-)

We bought this new tube at good ol' Costco and it is AWESOME. It launches everyone so high.  (All of those pictures are on the old camera; bummer!)

These two are FINALLY married!  Congrats to Jacy and McKay! We love you!

I fell in love with DVR this summer!  Isn't it the greatest thing ever?  I finally relented and let Steven use his awesome discount at Best Buy to buy a new TV and he quickly got cable hooked up. It has been worth every penny. I love snuggling up and watching movies in bed!  Speaking of bed we also took the plunge and finally bought a new one!!  A new mattress, headboard, and footboard.  After one long night of getting hardly any sleep I nicely told Steven that I was not going to bed again until we had a new one. We had been sleeping on Steven's old bed which was a FULL!!  It was super hard and way too small.  We now have a not too hard, but not too soft QUEEN mattress.  Yes, it was worth every penny!

So, now that we have no money left (we also bought a new car!) we get to spend it ALL on school and gas to get to school.  Joy.

Here's my guy after his first day of his LAST semester!  (of undergrad that is.)  He wasn't very thrilled about me taking a picture, but after I backed him into the corner he didn't really have a choice.

He is thrilled to be almost done and can't wait to finally have a degree he can do something with!  I'm so proud of him eventhough he beat me by a semester!  May, here I come!  Can't wait!
