Like fireworks and cotton candy combined

I don't really have any words for how elated I am today so I will just share some pictures from yesterday. Enjoy! No, I am not the world's dumbest person, I edited out the last name. I dyed the fabrics and drew the logo myself! Waiting with Bekah- also known as Blessing from God, Best Friend, Keeper of the Sanity, Photographer and Generally Amazing Woman. Hooray for America. Lots of anxious families waiting for their Marines. Here they come! I found him! Neither of us have been this happy for six months. Chris and me. And now life is as it should be.
If I don't post for a while it is because I am having too much fun hanging out with my husband!


I'll just have a glass of water

You know how some days things go really well? You know how sometimes the plumber comes and fixes the dishwasher and the shower and the running toilet? You know how sometimes you ask the plumber why the kitchen faucet doesn't swivel and he says that it is corroded and needs replacing? You know how sometimes you think you know better?
Monday was one of those days when I thought I knew better. Corroded you say? I can fix that with some vinegar. I will just wrap the faucet in paper towels soaked in vinegar and let that break down the corrosion. See, look it is getting looser already! I knew it! Now I bet if I just push it a little harder then it will be.....
Oh, crap.
$98 at Lowes later you are back in your kitchen ready to learn about plumbing.
2 hours later you are still under the sink ready to murder whoever put these bolts on so tightly. And what is with rust?! Seriously, if we want information from terrorists we should put them under sinks and make them lay flat on their backs with water dripping in their faces and rust flaking into their eyes and make them loosen bolts.
Terrorism solved. You're welcome.
But you finally get those stupid terrorists. Umm, I mean bolts. And then it is time for the shiny new faucet. The instructions only have 4 steps so it can't be that hard right?
Did I mention that to test the shiny new faucet you have to keep crawling out from under the sink and going outside in the 115 degree heat to turn the water back on at the main source because the valves under the sink are, yup you guessed it, rusted shut?
You know when you have one of those days where you accomplish something you have never done before and you feel super proud of yourself and you take a 30 minute shower?
Monday was one of those days.


31 Flavors

Friday, Saturday and Sunday I drove from Denver to Yuma all by myself. Well, the dogs where there too, but as Chris said "Loki has no opposable thumbs and tends to drift to the left". To me this drive was a huge accomplishment. I do not like to drive long distances, I like to sleep in the passenger seat and wake up when we are there. Chris is pro at driving so when we are together he does about 80% of the driving. I drove 7 hours Friday, 5 Saturday and 5 Sunday. Yea Me!
We saw some different flavors of America.
We were sad to leave Colorado.
We were not sad when this idiot stopped tailing us and finally just passed us.
We drove under beautiful clouds and stormy clouds.
We passed "Wagon Mound Hill".
We stayed in Albuquerque.
We saw a really big shaggy dog.
Oh, wait. We saw a really big shaggy sheep!
I had a backseat driver.
We stopped for gas several times.
Loki and Koda almost blew away outside of Flagstaff.
I ate the best taco of my entire existence. No really, it was so good that after the first bite I went searching for my camera to show it to you. Yummy.
We checked out dog parks in Albuquerque and Flagstaff.
We observed some fascinating license plates.
I drove a long way without seeing another car so I took that chance for self picture taking.
We raced some trains.
We felt the heat rise and knew we were almost home.
We made it!
