Good News!!!

We are going to be quite the little travelers this coming month! Not this week but the weekend after, we will be going to Kauai for a little Water polo tournament that we get to play in! It should be really fun and mellow, and a good chance to get in the water and play a few games!

But here's the really exciting, big news... the week after we will be heading out to NEW YORK!!!! I don't know how long I have dreamed about going to New York but we're really going! We bought our tickets last night so there's no turning back =) We are super Lucky because we get to stay with Evan (Stuart's brother) who has been living there and going to Columbia. He'll know everything we need to do while we're there! That also saves us a huge chunk of change not having to book a hotel! We're so excited! We also saved a bunch on our flights because when we were flying home (from our panama trip) we had to sit on the plane at LAX for 4 hours. United felt bad about it and gave each of us a $250 credit voucher for our next flight with them. SCORE!

We are so looking forward to spending time with Evan, checking out the sights, seeing a broadway show, eating yummy food... and maybe even catching a Angels/Yankee game!


I"M SOOOO EXCITED!!!! Bet you couldn't tell. ; )

I know you feel like I've neglected you! And I truly am sorry. And this post probably won't make you feel any better. It might make you laugh... or at least smile.

I help a gecko move away from home today. I don't know if he wanted a new life but he sure has one now. I hopped on my bike this morning to go to work (subbing at the high school) as I peddled away from home I noticed I had a little friend along for the ride. A cute little gecko. I wasn't sure if he would jump off but I kept my eye on him and he just stayed put. All the way down to the elementary school. He was just cruizin on my little black basket. I had to go off a little curb and when that happens, my basket bounces quite a bit. When the first tire went off it bounced him off the basket and onto my bag sitting inside the basket. However when the second tire made the drop, it bounced him right out of the basket. He landed on the ground and scurried away to explore his new life.... i'm pretty sure they aren't like cats and he won't be finding his way home to P-Loop. This was like moving to the other side of the world in gecko land.

Jersey Sheets and a little motivation

Those jeans on my wall haven't been worn for about 2 1/2 years. Its sad really. They've been sitting on a shelf or in a box and most recently packed in a suit case (not because they were going anywhere but because they were being stored). They are my "Goal Jeans". I like these goal jeans because its realistic. When I bought them, they fit me perfectly. I have a picture with me in them (thats it on the wall). I figure, my goal jeans weren't doing any good packed away and needed to be seen. Now they hang on the wall with proof that I can get into them! I hope they won't be up there for long and i'll be wearing them comfortably soon enough!

Oh yeah, I bought some new sheets. They're bright green and sooo comfy cozy! We love them!
