If you want to hear my long list of excuses, continue reading... My knee has been giving me some problems so I thought some water aerobics would be a good solution. HeRoos and I met at the rec center on his way home from work to swap the baby. I excitedly headed in with my flip flops, swimsuit under my clothes & and towel in hand. A sign on the door read that the pool is under construction for a month. So much for updating their website. Grrr So, I asked the young guy at the counter what I could do to get a work out with flip flops. His response, "Nothing." 'Thanks pal.' I arrived home a little frustrated so HeRoos and I decided to wash the car. I guess my bathing suit got a little wet after all. There are a couple days that I've been in my tennis shoes ready to sweat and my little guy decides he's hungry. I feed him, then I feel completely drained and opt not to work out. Excuses excuses excuses.
And for a downer (not related to this topic at all but my chance to get feelings sorted out as I type)...I've been a little caught up in all the sadness that seems to be going on in the world. Life is so unpredictable. One of my sorority sisters was killed in a plane crash, along with nine other people. She left behind a little girl. Then I started thinking about our neighbor who died from a motorcycle accident, leaving behind a wife and six young children. Then I read about a couple (who I don't personally know) who were severely burned in an airplane crash who have children. And a young mother battling cancer. There is just so much sadness. I feel sad for the families who have been left behind and those who are watching their loved ones suffer. I truly believe that the people who have passed on are in a far better place but my heart aches for those who are left behind to cope with the huge hole in their hearts. I often use my blog as a place to share happy events but I guess there are times that it's ok to share the not so happy things. I used to write in my journal regularly. I have a whole trunk full of diaries and journals. Writing my thoughts down on paper was the best form of therapy and brainstorming. Since I started blogging, I justified it as my journal entries but I'm afraid that is another area I need to stop slacking in. I know that with all the sadness in the world, there is just as much happiness. Sometimes it's just easy to get caught up in the storm and miss the rainbow.

I just tried to tune out the smells as I chomped down on my burger.
Then we kicked our boots around on the dance floor. BM enjoyed the tunes as he was snuggled between us. HeRoos dropped the camera just as we were trying to record my mom and dad really tearing up the dance floor.
My cousin and her husband also rocked their baby to sleep while she sloshed around in Destiny's tummy.
BM and his mom REALLY want a floppy eared bunny. There was a sign that said they can be trained to use a litter box. How cool is that! HeRoos and I can't find middle ground with cats and dogs but I'm working on him for a bunny! Probably my most very favorite part of the evening was riding the bull! I've always wanted to try- I'm a wanna be cowgirl. It was a riot!

We're big fans of Redbox. I love that we can rent movies for $1! We usually end up paying more because it takes us a while to get around to watching a movie or we forget to turn it in the next day. HeRoos and I have very different taste in movies so we usually take turns picking them out.
We rented "Bella" and had no idea what to expect. Both of us really liked it! It was clean, a little sad at times, and a good, solid story line (something we've been yearning for). If you rent it, be sure to watch Behind the Scenes. It seems like the directors and actors share a common thread that is rare these days-integrity.

I hope my sister in law writes a post (Halhouse) about the missing hair bow. It is too funny but not my story to tell.
BM and Grandpa Bob
My brother and Peanut
Grandma Reta & Grandpa Bob
The church stake that my parents attend, sure know how to party. In the morning, they had a golf tournament and in the evening, they rented out the local pool and had a barbecue. It appealed to all ages. We had a fun time and didn't want it to end.
If you look really close, you can see Peanut coming out of the slide and G.R. waiting for him. I'm in the blue bikini on the left. I changed my hair color for the day and my exercise program is really working. :)
G.R. and Walnut
Uncle & Aunt SheRoos with Peanut and Walnut
The fun weekend ended at the Halhouse. We enjoyed their new deck and BM finally got a decent hair cut. Clippers work a lot better than scissors.
Equals ONE very happy wife!
How does that saying go??? A happy wife is a happy life. Well, we're all pretty happy around here. HeRoos' hard work finally paid off and our downstairs bathroom is finished! There were one too many times that I had to wobble my pregnant or broken body upstairs. Now that the project is over, our garage is no longer a work area but the home to BOTH of our cars. This is the first time EVER!

*Martine Grill- Portobello Mushroom Sandwich on a wheat bun.
* Rumbi Island Grill-Hawaiian Mahi-Mahi blackened. Instead of the rice and Caesar salad, I get a generous portion of their house salad. It is delicious but gives me dragon breath.
* California Pizza Kitchen- The garlic chicken pizza OR anything on their menu. I love it all!
* Tepanyaki Japanese Steakhouse- Sushi, sushi, and more sushi!
* Bombay House- Chicken Coconut Kurma, Naan, and for dessert...Peshawari Naan.
* Chili's Bar & Grill- I don't think you can go wrong here. I have three favorites. Boneless Buffalo Chicken Salad, Fajitas, and Monterey Chicken and of course dessert...Chocolate Chip Paradise Pie
* Red Robin- I have to include this place for their bottomless beverages (Freckled Lemonade) and Mountain High Mudd Pie! Mmmmm Mmmm Good!
* Rubio's Fresh Mexican Grill- Fish tacos, chips, and guacamole.
* Cafe Rio- All of their salads are fantastic! I also like their pork burrito, enchilada style.
I am salivating just thinking about all the delicious food out there. Don't get me wrong, I like to cook but doesn't food always taste better when someone else prepares it, serves it, and cleans up?
I'm open to new places and suggestions. What are your favorite restaurants and menu items?
BM with his Grandpa Vinn and Grandma Trudy
I enjoyed watching my man do all the work while I sat back and sipped on lemonade with an umbrella.
Fortunately BM played hard so he slept well at night. HeRoos kept waking me up to tell me that BM was sleeping hard. thanks!
Looks normal, right? Scroll down for a closer look...
The fish didn't seem to bite anymore with live bait but it sure cooled HeRoos off. ;)
