Arizona Fun!

Mike decided to take me to the SUNS game right? So we bought tickets for the playoff game 1 on So.. We're all excited, get to the gate, and our tickets dont work! Mike and I look at eachother in disbelief- go to find out they were for game 2 not for game 1! (HAHA) So since we were there, had the babysitter and were all hyped up, we found a scalper and got some seats for a whoppping 300 dollars! But they were great seats, and it turned out to be an intense game till the end and we lost by 3!!! So here are some pictures of game 2. Since i didnt bring a camera to game 1.



the view from our seats!

While we were in Az, Mike took me to the store and let me buy a new camera!! I was like a little kid in a candy shop.
Here it is - My new baby!!!

& so far this is what ive captured.

Busy bee

I broke my camera yesterday when Mason and I were making cupcakes. I dropped it on the floor and it went caploo-ey. Mike said he's not buying me another one :[ I go through cameras like nothing. I think ive had 4 in the last year?? Idk how it happens. I need a childproof one for sure tho! Think I need to plan a romantic dinner, and work my magic so i can get another one! But we did get our new computer yesterday!! its GORGEOUS! im in L.O.V.E!!!

Yesterday was our last day at clinical. And we had our big feast with everyone culture food. It was so yummy. I felt like i needed to be rolled out once we were finished eating. Luckily im getting a gym membership today so i can work it off before it hits my theighs! But anyways! While we were at clinical after we ate, we were allowed to visit with our 'favorite residents' say goodbye or pamper people. And as i was making my rounds, this man ive gotten to know these last 15 weeks had gone sooo downhill from last Saturday. It was unbelievable. I cant say much else. But i sat there with him and talked to him for so long. Rubbing his arm and letting him know he wasnt alone. He looked at me said something i couldnt understand, and then stopped breathing for a good 2 minutes. It was terrifying. All i could say was, breathe, breathe, breathe... over and over. I couldnt believe it. Then when he gasped for air and started breathing again, i said my goodbyes and had to leave before i broke down. It was intense. Then when i got home, i found out that Mike's dad had a heart attack and needs surgery on friday. So we are driving back home for the weekend to be with him. -All this stuff all at once is a little overwhelming.

On a happier note. Yesterday my dad bought Mason, Brayden, my mom, and I plane tickets to come out to Illinois for a week! -(Mike dont think he'll be able to get time off-shitty!)- I havent seen my dad in years. & on top of that, ive NEVER even seen my parents together in the same state! So this shall be interesting to say the least. What sucks, is its during the In-Home care program that I enrolled for last week. And if you are absent once, you get dropped so im going to have to drop that class :[ But its ok, cuz in Arizona you dont need to be certified to work in-home. I was just doing it to gain the knowledge. So now im going to enroll in the summer for my lab pre-reqs for Nursing and im going to take Spanish!! Im stoked about that! Ive always wanted to learn and the high school class was a joke!

Well, i better get the day started with! Have to study for a 300 question exam today. Whewww. Im nervous!!

Buh Bye for now! :]

Anyone out there?!

Not that i have many followers! But i have a little update for now, until i get a new computer. FYI -while i was home for spring break, the dog/house sitter dumped beer all over our computer, that we JUST got in October. So we are waiting for him to buy us a new one! He's SO terribly sorry. I feel bad he has to buy us a new one. Computers arent cheap.


Spring break was amazing! I left tuesday with my two little stud muffins, and it was non stop until mike and the guys caught up with us on Friday. We had a nice getaway while my sister watched the kiddos and we got a room for the night ;) it was awesome to have a little fun together. Im usually the one staying home with the kids while he goes out with the guys! Mainly because i wasnt 21 but still!!


I finish school next week! Im so excited to start working again. It feels like ive been so busy being pregnant and taking care of the kids, i havent had a chance to help provide for our family. I cant wait for that to start changing! I hate being a stay at home mom. Well not completely. I totally love it actually. But before Mike and the kids, i was so independent, ive been out of my norm these last couple years. If you didnt know, im going to school to be a Certified Nursing Assistant, so come April 23rd after my state exam, i can put CNA after my name!!! Yay! One step closer to RN <3


The kids are great, Mason said like 20 new words in one day, like MINE! ahh, its the beginning of no end! Mase is always trying to play with b-rad, its so adorable! I cant wait till they are both running around playing together! Brayden is starting to crawl all over the place, and never wants formula. He's always staring at us with his big blue eyes, drooling over whatever we're eating! So my little baby is now 18 lbs!!! He's grown wayy to fast. Im so glad im satisfied with 2 kids. Or else nows about that time where im begging Mike to have another one. I did that when Mason was around 8 months too! LOL. (FYI-my kids are 18 months apart) :) Only if i knew it wouldnt take more than a month to get knocked up again! haha. But i love how close they are!! :)


Did i mention how beautiful this weather is! Spring is here, and this desert is starting to look green! Loving all the flowers that are popping up outside my doorstep. Cant wait to take the kids to Sea World, and the Zoo!! Well, i better get stuff done, i have class soon!

More later (with lots of pictures) when i get my new computer!
