Get out of Here!

Tommy and I decided a change of scenery would be great, so we took the freeway out of town and chilled in Show Low for the weekend! Here are some pics from the trip...look close, you can see Van standing happily moments before Zoey thiefed his Pop-Tart Ah, here is the rare Tommy-Boy monkey attempting to hop up onto the second floor of the cabin! We sort of got locked out, and had to climb up to the top floor. Unfortunately, this tactic wasn't quite successful, so I got back in touch with my cheerleader roots, and Tommy partner-lifted me up- yikes!!
Did you know horny-toads bleed out of their eyes when they get frightened? Me neither, but this poor guy did after we were through with him...
And, I had to steal this picture from Brie's blog because I LOVE it! Her and Jason were awesome, and helped get Zoey up to the cabin, even though she can be a bit of a handful. Thanks guys!!

An oldie but a goodie

This post is a little late, but better late than never! Here is a photo of Tommy and Zoey at QC's first home football game. I was so proud of my little family running out on the field, and I may be a tad partial, but I really think Zoey stole the show!

Old...but lucky!

Another birthday has rolled around, and it was great! Tommy surprised me by decorating the house and having a snazzy cake waiting for me when I got home from work, and then we went out to dinner with our friends Emily and Jack at one of the best restaurants of all time- BJ's!!

And, I know it's not quite Halloween yet, but I have been itching to put up the fun/scary decorations for like a month now- but I have been prohibited to until today!! My sister-in-law Erin might be even more excited than me- she put hers up two weeks ago, and she made this sweet Halloween decoration that I absolutely love- I had to show it here:

I don't think the picture does it full justice, but trust me, it's adorable! Thanks Erin! You can check out her other Glitzy creations here- http://glitzdesignerin.blogspot.com/.

Tommy Got Stoned...Kidney-Stoned!

So, Tommy Boy woke me up at 1 o'clock (that's right- AM!) on Saturday, the beginning to our holiday weekend, and tells me his side hurts and he needs to go to the doctor. He had gone through all of his medical books, and decided he had kidney stones. Now, I half-way open my eyes, and in my head I'm drifting back a few years to when my sister had kidney stones. She's got a massively high tolerance for pain, but I remember her not looking so hot when she was passing the stones...so I proceed to tell Tommy that he needs to be sicker than that if I'm going to believe he's got kidney stones, and to go back to sleep (did I mention waking me up is NEVER a good idea if you want sympathy?? lol, poor guy!) . So anyway, he spends a sleepless night and finally wakes me up again at 5 in the morning to request another doctor visit. This time I give in, and...

Uh-huh, that's his hospital bracelet! The CT scan confirmed that Tommy did, in fact, have kidney stones, and actually finished passing them before we made it to the hospital to get him some pain drugs! Now I officially know that I am married to one tough guy ;)
