Are we back in college???







Luke and I had a very fun weekend and partied like rock stars but Sunday evening when we could not keep our eye open, it was apparent to us that we are NOT in college anymore! ha!

We got to hang out with our great friends Jamie and Eric Friday night, they came over and we fried okra and made some dogs and hung out... Then Saturday Luke went to the baseball game, all you can eat and drink tickets, while I went to Michelle's bridal shower, then we met back up and met Lauren and Brian up at Helen's, the guys stayed there while we went and tried on bridesmaid dresses for Laurens wedding coming up in October and we found one! I love it too, it is very elegant and chic! After that it was off to Jimbos birthday party to see an Elvis impersonator, it was one of the best times I have had in a long time, Jim had a great group of friends from Illinois and they all took an old school RV to the concert, SO funny! Then we danced the night away at a bar... a bar we didn't fit in at very well. ;) It has been a long time since Luke and I have been out that Jack in the Box is closed on our way home!!!

Yesterday we layed on our bums and relaxed at the pool all day, a great end to a perfect weekend!

Now I will be playing catch up all week from "playing" all weekend, Ohh well that's what summer is for!

Luke and his baseball...



Luke is coaching a Legion team that keeps him very busy, they have games every night of the week and multiple games and tournaments every weekend. Last night the game got canceled due to a big tournament out of town this weekend so he actually got to go play softball...

So fun!

Longhorns!

Fathers day

I just wanted to say "Happy Fathers Day" to all the dads and grandpas!
Luke and I had a great Fathers day weekend, We went to St Peters Picnic Friday night which included an ultra exciting Tractor Pull (I hope you can hear the exaggeration there!) Then off to the farm, it was a great relaxing weekend, with no cell phones ringing, and no schedule we had a good time relaxing and enjoying each others company. And we ended the weekend at a fish fry with Luke's family!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I did good at running the majority of the first mile then walked/ ran the rest with Michelle. It was a really fun morning for a great cause, and we are definitly going to make it an annual thing!

What a nightmare!!!

Luke and I had a wonderful weekend, full of friends, pools, Cards games, and a little relaxing with the family.
Sunday Luke coached a game at 2, I went to my friends daughters birthday party at 2 and then we were going to meet at my moms to barbecue. I went to the store before the party to get a gift and pick up food for our house and for my moms, so you can imagine my frustration when I pulled in our driveway with a car full of food with it raining cats and dogs and my garage door opener not working, well it probably was working but since our power was out from the gigantic storm... I had to carry everything in the rain thru the front door. After contemplating putting it all away, in the dark, warm fridge, I finally got ready and left for the party.

After a fun evening Luke and I got home about 9 pm to find the power was back on, BUT our TV and computer were not working... Hummm... after Luke did a little investigating he found that the outlets worked, (we tested them with a lamp) So either our house was really close to lightening, or the power "popped" when it went out so hard that it blew everything. My computer and modem was fried, our DVD player/burner was fried, our NEW DVR was fried!!!!! We were very upset that all of these items were broken and would most likely need to be replaced, but we went to bed and thought we would deal with it in the morning.

The next morning I learn that some of our outlets are not working with a wet head trying to blow dry my hair :) We tried a bunch of them and they were shot! Luke stayed home from work yesterday morning to get things straightened out around our house. He fixed all the outlets, got us a new DVR and modem at the charter place (not fun), And the rest we are going to have to wait for repair men on. I am really hoping they can fix my computer, I have EVERYTHING saved on there, from wedding pictures to college papers...

Ohh and both everything at the computer desk and the entertainment center were both all plugged into surge protectors... weird!

THat was the end to our weekend!
