Another vacay?

So, it has definitely been awhile since I have posted anything. Things have been crazy busy at work and when I get home, I just want to veg out and hang with my boys! Well I finally got an opportunity to take another long weekend and hang out. It seems like so much has happened since I was on here last, I accepted a new position (a promotion, YEAH GO ME!) to be the HR representative for the IU School of Dentistry. It was a very hard decision to make, I love where I am at, love the people and most of what I do... but I looked at where I needed to be professionally and what would be the best for our family and I knew this was the option for me. Its great because I have already worked with my new boss, this entire year and she is the person that hired me in my position now, so she knows exactly what is needed to make me effective!! :)

Grant started "school", really it is daycare, but we call it school, one day a week. The first day he loved it, but last week he was really sad :( I think he will really start to like it, it just may take some time. He brings home the CUTEST artwork ever. Sometimes you wonder if the teacher did it and wrote their name on it, or if they did it. The first one was definitely his, but the second, looked like the teacher did them all and just labeled them with their names on it :) hahaha

We went to the Fishers Festival, which is always fun! They have all kinds of booths and things to do for little kids, of course I think the food is the best thing :) We let Grant go to town on some chocolate ice cream on a Saturday morning, boy did he love that!! HA
Fourth of July was really fun.... we hung out at home, G passed out early and we did a block party. Had drinks, sat in the ran, lite fireworks... the whole SHABANG! I would post funny some videos of the karaoke that took place in our house, but that is bad, bad evidence that I dont want leaked on the net... (you better not PATRICIA!! ;)
I really enjoy my mini vacations... I am off work until Thursday and it is FABULOUS! I posted some random pics.. hopefully, with my new job, I will have a little more time to post and get organized!

Daddy's Day!

It has been so very crazy at work, making sure all of our new residents get in and taken care of and end of year data stuff, I havent had an opportunity to write. On a side note, I do have an interview tomorrow for a promotion within the dental school, within HR. I am excited and although I love my job, always need to look at what can better me and my career. I think this opportunity would be very positive for me and where I would like my career to take me.
This past weekend was so good. Scott, Grant and I really had a chance to spend some QT together. We went out for dinner on Friday and came home and hung out. Saturday we went to get our pictures taken for my dad's 50th birthday and father's day and played the rest of the day. Sunday we did father's day, had a blast and ate a wonderful (but yes, fattening dinner!). I really enjoyed having a relaxing weekend. I know the next few weekends will be crazy with birthday parties, fourth of July and concerts, so it was nice to have a stressfree weekend. This is by far one of my favorite pictures of my boys :) He left the photo place before knowing what I ordered and I framed it for him to take to work, as well as a very sentimental gift that he loved! :) I am so very lucky for both of them and I thank god everyday that I do! I wouldnt have my life any other way!!!

Dont worry, this is no one I know. My husband was reading (proper citing the source of the picture :) and he stumbled across this story that is totally funny and ridiculous. This is a Jeffersonville lawyer who happened to get too drunk with some friends and this is where he decided to pass out, in a TRASH CAN!! haha We have all had those nights where we have been a little too drunk, but DAMN, really, I have never been to that level. You know this guy has to feel about an inch tall. The story ended with the police deciding not to file charges! I guess that is one bright spot to this drunken mess :)

Random Thought...

Just thought I would type this so I do not forget the day that I actually had someone eat my lunch. I just brought it today, so it had not been chilling long. I was so hungry and livid when I found out that someone ate it, then I figured out who did it and it made me even more irritated. Yes, I made her give me money because 1. that is ridiculous and 2. she does it all the time and she was going to pay for eating my lunch because that left me with nothing to eat. I mean seriously, who does that?? hahaha I guess I need to make sure I label it obnoxiously big to make sure no one eats it!!

Nighty night...

AZ Round Dos

Scotty and I decided to head back to AZ, just the two of us so we could hang out with our favorite family and relax with no worries. It was a little weird not having the GMan, but I know how very important it is to have time away. We had a flipping blast! We did some sight seeing, relaxed, laid out by the pool, hung around the resort and drank like fish ;) It was nice to just get away knowing our awesome family was taking care of him and not to have a care in the world. I didnt have to worry about any work, answering emails or phone calls, or chasing a two year old around all day... it was just us two! I have posted a few pics on Facebook, but here are couple. I definitely want to make it a point to get away more often, lord knows I have way too much time off to kill and I LOVE IT!!

"Thank you for being a friend"

My little guy is so funny! He loves the Golden Girls, just like his mommy. He gets super excited when the music comes on, he runs up to the TV and starts dancing. He will continue to dance until the music goes off and will sway everytime they change scenes. What makes it even funnier is that if he is in his playroom, he will stop what he is doing and go in to dance. He is the light of my life and everyday with him amazes me!

June storms

For the record my boys and I never usually go out to dinner on a "school night." I find it very important to cook dinner every night and eat together as a family, then immediately play afterwards. Today was a crazy day at work, I was completely swamped and just really wanted to go out to dinner and do something different... and was NOT in the mood to cook. We were watching the news before we left and we knew some thunderstorms were going to be coming, but nothing more than that. Wow, did we see some wacky stuff this evening. We headed into downtown Fishers and the sky was green... GREEN! You could tell exactly where the storm started. We got passed DQ and it started raining and briefly hailing. I told Scott to quickly pull into this bank that was coming up. It was a good thing we did. We pulled into the ATM lane and it went nuts. The trees were completely sideways, the large hail was coming down and my poor little man was so scared and started crying!! I climbed into the back seat and I looked around everywhere and the sky was sooo incredibly dark and there were now 5 cars all trying to squeeze into this bank! We watched this storm for about 15 minutes before we left. We decided to just go ahead and pick something quick up, didnt want to take anymore chances. Thankfully, we had no damage to our car, but as we drove across the street to the Marsh parking lot we saw at least 10 cars who had their back windows busted out. Then we looked up and saw the big, large glass windows of the supermarket completely busted. OMG!!

As we drove home we saw all kinds of stuff, debris everywhere, large trees and pine trees uprooted, flooding like you wouldnt believe. Its not like it was even a long storm, but it caused a lot of damage. We got home and again, thankfully there was no damage to our house, our neighbor did lose a tree (completely split in half) as did a few other people in the neighborhood. We are supposed to have more storms tomorrow, I hope it is nothing like this evening. The pics above are the couple of pictures I was able to snap from my phone!
