dancing in my chair

I’m listening to dembangs Hip-Hop play list on Spotify and it’s seriously the best thing ever. Thank goodness I’m alone in the office today so it doesn’t really matter if I’m dancing in my seat.

Funny you mention that! I just worked on part 2 of our road trip and guess where our last stop before coming home is?!?! Louisville!!
The second part is definitely less hours on the road than part 1 so it’s very likely since we have friends/family in 3 out of the 8 cities on part 2 that we may actually do that one sooner rather then later!

Joel and I have been working on our bucket list. We decided that it would be fun to see both our list and work on planning ways to cross off items from our list. I’ve got a few plans up my sleeve to mark off an item or two off his (another secret I have to keep from you guys until it happens, I know he’ll look at my tumblr at some point!). 

One of the items on my bucket list is to take a road trip across the US. We decided that this would be a fantastic trip to take before we (maybe) have kids. This morning in my lack of energy to start actual work, I started planning the major cities for part 1 of our road trip. Since it takes almost an entire day to get out of TX I know we’ll have to break up our road trip into two parts, which is fine with me. We’ve already done some of the southern states when we went to Ocracoke two years ago. 

Part 1 of our road trip will possibly include the following cities:

-Albuquerque, NM

-Las Vegas, NV

-Sacramento, CA

-Portland, OR

-Seattle, WA

-Boise, ID

-Salt Lake City, UT

-Denver, CO

I’m pretty excited about this trip and I hope we actually go through with it!

My new company is closed today, but I asked my old company if they had enough hours for me to come into work for the day. They did, so instead of being off work and sleeping in I woke up an hour earlier to work. I may be tired but when I get paid for the one day and we get a little extra cash it’s gonna be worth it.

So I’ve been keeping a secret from you guys… don’t take it personal, I only kept it a secret because I knew someone (JOEL) may possible read my blog so I didn’t want him to find out his birthday surprise.  One of the biggest downfalls about having a birthday outside of baseball season is you can’t go to a game on your actual birthday. I mean sure we have hockey and football, but there really isn’t anything like a baseball game.

Anyway, when I was trying to decided what I was going to get Joel for his birthday back in January I was really at a loss as to what exactly to get. Then the light bulb went off… baseball was going to be here before we know it we’ll just go to a game. I sent out a group text to a few of our friends to see if they would want to join us. They did and the secret was under way.  It was extremely difficult to keep it a secret but I threw him off the trail a few times. Once everyone got to our house Saturday, I handed Joel an envelope and said… open it. When he opened it and saw the Ranger Logo he was really excited then asked when we were going to the game.. Today!! He was so excited and amazed that I was able to pull of this surprise.

We got to the game, drank beer, and ate tons of delicious hot dogs.  I arranged to have Joel’s name on the jumbo-tron for the birthday announcements. Sadly, he couldn’t see it from his seat to make it a real surprise so I had to tell him that he had to go stand some place else so he could see it.

He kept saying there was no way he was ever going to be able to pull off a surprise like this for me, which is fine with me because I HATE surprises.

Friday night we just hung out at the apartment catching up on our DVR. Saturday before the game, we met my parents for lunch and made a trip to goodwill to donate some items we had. Sunday we just hung out, did laundry and grocery shopped. All in all it was a great weekend!
