Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas everyone! Tonight (Christmas Eve) Addam and I are going to his mom's for dinner with his family. Tomorrow morning, we are going to Christmas morning at his grandma's house. Then I am driving all the way up to Idaho on Christmas!!! Of course, there is a big snowstorm in the forecast, hopefully it doesn't make travelling too bad.
I am excited to see my family. Cecily and Ryan are having a baby, due June 30th. (Who can beat that for a Christmas present???) Everyone is really happy for them, especially me! Mark and Ginger will be in Wyoming, but there in spirit. Eric and Joanna will be celebrating their first Christmas together! Mom and Dad are excited to have us come visit.
Happy Holidays!!!

Are you ready for Halloween?

I am working on Halloween, but it is for a good cause. One of my co-workers gets to take his 2 and 4 year olds trick or treating. It is usually fun to be at the airport on Halloween anyway, all the kids and dogs are all dressed cute. :)

Fun Weekend

My mom is in town to take care of my grandma and my uncle Ross. We all went to see Beverly Hills Chihuahua. Grandma said that she has never seen a dog show before, and Ross loved it! It is hard for us to predict which movies they will like. :)
We also went with Cecily and Ryan to the Cheesecake factory, Yum! Addam came along with Cecily, Ryan, Ross, Grandma, and Mom to Tepanyaki. Tepanyaki is one of mine and Addam's favorite restaurants. Addam and Ryan both caught the shrimp in their mouths when the chef threw them. :)
All in all, a nice weekend. It was fun to spend so much time with my family :)

Aren't you glad you aren't up with the latest fasions?

I haven't posted any fashion pics in awhile, and I found some good ones! This is all the latest headwear from recent fashion shows....
This first one is like a swim cap gone wrong...

I think she might be trying to look like a one-eyed fly...

Maybe they are channeling star wars???

The scariest Mickey Mouse I have ever seen!

She had some extra ping pong balls, so she threw them into a net and put them on her head!

I guess I will never understand "Fashion" lol...

Do I look that young?

Here is a funny story from my trip to Minneapolis:

I was able to get a seat in the exit row. (Yay! Extra leg room!) The flight attendant came over and was giving us the safety talk, and after a minute she just looked at me and asked "How old are you?" To which I responded (of course) "28!" She looked shocked and then she awkwardly started asking the other people in the row how old they were too. (My co-worker was on the other side of the aisle and she is 22, but apparently I look a lot younger lol!) The funny thing is that you have to be 15 years old to sit in the exit row.

So, the question is how old do I really look? I wouldn't have ever guessed 15 lol!

Hebgen Lake!

I had a lot of fun with my family last week at Hebgen Lake in Montana!
I didn't get any pics of myself, but I swear that I had a good time too!

Eric loves to Jet Ski!
The newlyweds had a great time!

My cousin Liz's son Ethan was so adorable, he found my mom's glasses and had to wear them :)

I am off tomorrow for a week in West Yellowstone area. We are staying at a cabin on Hebgen Lake. I am looking forward to some nice relaxing time with my family. :) I have a camera now, so maybe when I get back I can post some real pictures instead of ones I find online.

Finally An Update!

Sorry for the lack of recent updates! My computer is completely broken and I have been using Addam's laptop for most of my Internet access in the past two weeks.  I haven't been able to do everything I usually do. Plus Addam's laptop is a Mac, and I am not as knowledgeable about those lol.  I am going to get a new computer tomorrow and a digital camera (finally) so now I should be able to do more regular updates!  Yay!

Happy Birthday America!

I just wanted to say that I love the 4th of July :) I am proud to be an American, and I love this country. I have to work, but I hope that everyone else will have a great time at the fireworks!

Maybe it is just me, but I don't really like the idea of living or working in a building that moves around. I guess it would have to be safe or else they probably wouldn't build it, but it doesn't really seem like it would be. At least I don't really have to worry about it since they are building it in Dubai.

Do you need some cheering up? Here are some cute baby animals!

Twin Moose calves

They are all knees!

Baby crocodile-- new to the world

A snowleopard-pretty curious

And lastly, sleepy baby pandas

A little too excited!

It would be pretty interesting to meet either of the presidential candidates, but this woman is a little too excited to meet Barak Obama I think.

Watch Out!

One more reason why you should pay attention while you are driving.

Okay, I guess we don't have it so bad after all, in Germany the gas prices are up to $11.49 a gallon! Of course, look at Venezuela, where the gas is only 12 cents a gallon! I would still rather live in America!


I just came to a sad realization this morning when I started getting hives in the shower. I probably won't be able to go swimming at all this summer. I can barely take a shower without getting hives. Staying in the water too long makes me break out. Its not like I had a lot of big swimming plans for the summer (Addam doesn't know how to swim anyway), but usually we go swimming at least one day when we are at the cabin. I really had not even thought about swimming until now. :( Sigh....

Can't We Just All Get Along?

Isn't this picture adorable?

Gas Prices

I am pretty depressed about the gas prices lately, they have gone up 25 cents a gallon in the last couple of weeks. I guess it could always be worse though, take a look at this picture of a gas price protest in Jakarta. At least no one is setting anything on fire... yet...

One more example of what not to wear at your wedding. Unless you are a vampire, then maybe you could get away with it...

As you know, my brother is getting married in July. Joanna has already found a dress, and it is really too bad because I just saw these pictures from a bridal fashion show! If only I had just found these sooner!

I like flowers, but not really enough to wear them as a hat. lol.

Are you hungry????
Try a maple bacon bar!

Today I went to the doctor about my hives again. If you don't already know, I am suffering from Chronic Idiopatihic Urticaria. That is a fancy name for getting hives every single day and having no known cause. I have been suffering since mid-December. Back then, I was covered head to toe and sometimes my whole face and hands would get all swollen. I have improved a lot since I started on the immune suppressant therapy, but I am still getting some hives almost every day. At least there haven't been any more middle of the night trips to the ER! Now, I mostly get the hives on my hands and waist.

The doctor today started me on a new drug, Dapsone, that I can take with the Cellcept. It was originally for leprosy, so that is interesting. Hopefully it will make it so that I don't have any hives at all. As a bonus, if I had any leprosy hanging around I guess it would help with that too, lol.

Cross your fingers for me!
