Doors!!!

Have you ever noticed HOW MANY different kinds of doors there are???
 Tyler and I took a ton of pictures of cool doors while we were in France.  I've been meaning to make a collage of all the pictures.  Haven't gotten around to it yet.  :
There's doors that have to be PUSHED to be opened, there's doors that you have to PULL to open. There's sliding doors, there's car doors, there's revolving doors, there's glass doors, there's screen doors and there's automatic doors, there's locked doors and I'm SURE, many more!!!
.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF A DOOR???
A door is a moving structure used to block off, and yet still allow access to something, an entrance to a place, yet a closure to a place within an enclosed space, such as a building, room, closet or vehicle.
.
In life, there are MANY doors that we will walk through and some that we will SEE, but NEVER walk through. The question IS, HOW do we know if a door is meant for us to walk through or NOT???
.
So often you will hear and probably even say at some point, "I'm JUST waiting for GOD to open the door before making a decision." AND while this is good to a certain extent, SOMETIMES, we're waiting for God to open a door that says PUSH or PULL on it!!!
.
Sometimes, the door has a LOCK and only God can unlock it but there are other times that the door has a lock and GOD has given us THE KEY and now it us up to us to take that key and unlock the door. Sometimes we have to KNOCK and WAIT for God to open the door, And YET there are other times, when God locks a door and it will NEVER BE UNLOCKED!!!
.
Sometimes, there's a revolving door, and God wants us to go through something before we can get to what is on the other side. Sometimes you just gotta shut the door for a little bit, while your riding to your destination and THEN its time to open that door again! Sometimes there's sliding doors and you gotta figure out if you should SLIDE that door all the way open, or if you should just partially slide it open to not let anything IN or OUT with you.
.
Sometimes there's a glass door and you can see very clearly what is on the other side and weather or not you should open that door! Sometimes there's a screen door, and you can only kind of see what is on the other side, but you'll never really know, TILL YOU OPEN THE DOOR!!!
.
Sometimes in life, there are automatic doors. There are things in our life that are just automatic. They just happen without us trying or doing anything for them to open. Church, school, family, those were automatic doors for me that just happened without trying. Waking up and going to sleep are just automatic doors. And you'll find blessings that come to you in life, that were just automatic without you doing or saying anything to have ever gotten them!!!
.
There are automatic things that God expects us to do. I remember hearing someone once say that they kept bumping into someone, they didn't know what God wanted to do, but they just wanted to pray about if they should witness to them or not. Bishop Abbott spoke up, WELL, I can tell you what God wants to do for that person, HE WANTS TO SAVE THEM!!! Sometimes we over-spiritualize the OBVIOUS or THE AUTOMATIC!!! Should you witness??? YES!!! The Bible says that God is NOT willing that ANY should perish, BUT that ALL should come to repentance! Should you repent??? Should you obey God's word??? It's an AUTOMATIC DOOR!!! YES, you should!!!
.
As a female, sometimes, its good for us to be a lady, WAIT and let a man OPEN THE DOOR FOR US, but sometimes, you can't always wait around for someone to be opening the doors for you.
.
I've seen AZ females, usually in the dating or newlywed stage of life, SIT IN THE CAR after reaching a destination, in 120 degree weather and NO AC, WAITING FOR THE GUY to get out of the car and open the door for her. Now, I believe in chivalry, I like it, its nice, I appreciate it, BUT, in 120 degree weather, I'm OPENING MY DOOR AS QUICLEY AS POSSIBLE AND HIGHTAILING IT TO THE CLOSEST PLACE WITH AC!!! Why??? BECAUSE ITS HOT OUT!!!! Sometimes you just need to be PRACTICAL!!! The original intent of chivalry was NOT the romanticized version that we know about now. The original intent of chivalry was for a man to do something for a female, elderly person, or child, that they could NOT do for themselves.
.
There are times, when you need to wait, trust in God and LET HIM OPEN THE DOOR! There are times in life, when there is NO WAY you can open the door yourself and the only thing you can do is WAIT for God to open it. However, while YES, God IS indeed a gentleman, SOMETIMES, there are things that YOU CAN DO FOR YOURSELF!!! Sometimes, you just gotta OPEN YOUR OWN DOOR!!!
.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IN LIFE, WHAT TO DO AT EACH DOOR YOU COME TOO???
.
The KEY to knowing how you should proceed at each door in life, is THROUGH PRAYER!!! Jesus says in John 10:9 "I am the door..." THE KEY to knowing, IS SEEKING GOD or THE DOOR!!! We have to continually seek God in prayer for His will and direction in our lives. "The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God." (Psalm 14:2)
.
Should I wait? Should I PUSH? Should I PULL? Should I knock? Should I get a key? It can seem so complicated knowing what to do in life, and yet, its SO SIMPLE, PRAY!!! God wants us to PRAY!!! We will know what God wants us to do at each door in life, when we seek Him for His will and direction in our next step.
.
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.” (Psalm 32:8)

WHY MY BED IS ON THE FLOOR...

MARY LOGIC!!!
Sooooooooo, MY BED is a mattress, A VERY COMFORTABLE mattress, ON THE FLOOR in my room!!! One time, back in the day, while I was moving things around in my room, I decided that I also wanted to move my bed. I didn't think I needed any help moving it, annnnnd I didn't want to be that ANNOYING GIRL that's always asking for help...sooooo lets just say, I PROBABLY should have been that ANNOYING GIRL THAT ASKED FOR HELP!!! Ahahahahahaha!!! The bed frame sorta got twisted the wrong way and that was THE END OF THAT...NO BED FRAME ANYMORE!!!

Now A LOT OF PEOPLE have asked me, WHY DON'T YOU JUST BUY A NEW BEDFRAME, they're not that expensive annnnnd I AGREE, they're NOT!!! Buuuuuut I don't want to, annnnd I'll tell you WHY!!!
.
Having my bed on the floor is GOOD FOR ME!!! See, everyday, several times a day, I have to get up off the floor annnnnd the way I see it, as long as you ALWAYS HAVE TO GET UP OFF THE FLOOR, you'll NEVER, NOT BE ABLE TOO!!! Think about it, think about how as people get older they can't sit on the floor anymore, "OH i'm to old to get down there now! If got down on the floor I'd neverrrr be able to get up again!!!" Weeeeeelllll, that won't happen to  you IF you always do it!!!
.
When I had me weight loss surgery, I had the recliner you see in the above pic moved into my room, because I figured I wouldn't be able to get up off my mattress for a little bit while healing!!! Well, the day I got back from the hospital, I looked at my mattress and I thought, I BET I can get down there and get up again too, sooooo I tried it and BAM, no problemo at all!!! I got right down annnnd RIGHT BACK UP!!!! I'm telling you guys, IT WORKS, of course, I was also trying to get them to let me to walk while still in recovery buuuuuut that's besides the point, I'm telling you guys, put your mattresses on the floor...IT WORKS and its GOOD FOR YOU!!!

What it's like being ME!!!

I looked up on Pinterest things that describe my personality type and found some VERY ACCURATE memes!!! AHAHA!!! Champion Idealists, I think WHY would anyone want a DIFFERENT personality, I literally think that its PART of my personality, to LOVE MY PERSONALITY!!! AND YET, I'm glad we are VERY RARE annnnd only make up 4% of the population!!!
Except for "what do you mean I can't learn 10 different languages at once", I have said all of these:
The last thing like REALLY cracked me up, cuz I would say something like that while washing the dishes or something random like that too!!!
It is at this time Fi has begun to want to wildly gesticulate and panic about the ever ensuing day ahead. Almost busted my shins on the stairs while flying up after meeting Dee this morning... and oh yeah I've been up since about Monday morning... just had figure that damn cognition out man... wow... seriously tho Thank You God for understanding... twice (8/28/13):
This is very true...FOR EXAMPLE...I was going to write a devotional for today...OOOOPS!!!
An ENFPs thought process when asked what ONE THING are you thinking? Ugh this question is so difficult. It's like um...everything??:
YES, this REALLY IS the way mind thinks!!! And I have dreams of it raining FLUFFY puppies sometimes at night...SOOO PRECIOUS!!!
ENFP- That's exactly how I hug people!!:
MAR BEAR HUGS...NEED WE SAY ANYTHING ELSE!!!
sans the spectrum:
YUP!!! LOL
Cake decorating: creative outlet, not a ton of rules to follow, I'm one of two - three people with that job at the store, so I can do my own thing, take my break according to my own schedule most days. Awe yeah.:
This one made me laugh SOOOO HARD!!!
Yeah...I don't mean to do it, but if I don't say it right then and there I'll lose my train of thought.:
Annnnnd EVERYONE that knows me says, AMEN AND AMEN to this one!!!
If I like you, I'll end up noticing what your favorite drink is and getting it for you without you ever even asking for one. On the other hand, I don't even notice when someone is flirting with me.:
YUP!!! Soooooo TRUE!!!

Type 1s. We like to have everything out where we can see it! We fill a room with our personality & with our stuff!:
UH, HUH!!!
Tell me not to do something and I will do it twice and take pictures of it:
UNLESS, your like my pastor...OR someone I actually, ya know, RESPECT!!!
Live Life Happy: Yes I overthink but I also over-love. The post Yes I Overthink But… appeared first on Live Life Happy.:
YUP!!!
If I didn't already know I was ENFP, now I know for sure:
Its VERY hard to be bored...WHEN  YOUR ME!!!
It is my very firm belief that there is ALWAYS a good side to EVERY situation. ALWAYS.:
YES!!!
I have OCPD but I'm #enfp YAAAAAAAAAAAS:
Soooooooooooo TRUE!!!
I've often struggled to type ENSP/ESFP males. An ESFP guy on the internet gave me this tip: a telltale sign is that ESFPs tend to really be unnerved by the idea that someone may be upset with them. The second I've realized, is that with more males than females, ESFPs tend to be able to make the most fun out of any normal situation, and ENFPs tend to dive headlong into adding fun to weirdness.:
See, the thing IS is that, there are SOOOOO many normal people, to be NORMAL!!!
this always complicates things #enfp:
STORY OF MY LIFE!!!
Every day at work. It's my job to greet you with a smile. I don't want your phone number.:
Many in relationships with an ENFP literally say, "They light up my life.":
I believe it...Heh, heh!!!
... and just like that, I lost interest.... ;0:
Soooooooooooooo TRUE!!! So, so, so, SOOOOO VERY TRUE!!!
because if there is an instruction manual, even I don't have it:
Really, I WOULD!!! Hee, hee!!!

Another reminder...

As my mom was getting sicker and weaker in her body, I knew that her time with us was limited and that she would soon be leaving us. Other than being absolutely devastated that I would be losing my beloved mother, there was this burning desire to know, beyond a doubt that my mom was truly ready for heaven. Now I know people reading this are probably thinking, HOW could you even question it???
.
BUT my mom was THE FIRST PERSON to always say, you never TRULY KNOW what is in a person's heart, ONLY GOD DOES!!! I know that my mom would NOT have been mad or hurt by my wondering. In fact, BECAUSE of God showing me she was ready, I was even able to reassure her that she was indeed ready to meet her creator!!!
.
In desperation, I begged and pleaded and cried out to God to show me that she was indeed ready to meet Him. There were several incidents that happened BEFORE she died that let me know that INDEED she was ready to meet her savior face to face, I will share those moments with you in another time...
.
Today I want to share with you all a scripture I noticed in our Sunday morning Bible reading at church...

Psalm 92
Just another reminder to to me, that my mom TRULY was a righteous woman of God!!! For it was just a year or so before she died that her witness got through to Bro. Earl, an elderly man in our church!!! Seeing this scripture on Sunday was just another answer to the prayer I had prayed before her death!!! How awesome is it, that even now, God would give me AGAIN that reassurance that she was right with him!!! I'm Thanking God TODAY for yet another reminder!!! Thank you Jesus for truly caring about the fears and hurts of your people!!!

Happy Sunday!!!

Happy, happy, HAPPPPPPPPY SUNDAY my wonderful people!!! I couldn't help but see the humor ANNNNNNNNND THE TRUTH in this picture here below!!! :))))
 :
This week, starting today on THE LORD'S DAY, let's remember to let THE HOLY GHOST, take control of our flesh, lets NOT fight it, lets surrender OUR WILL to GOD'S WILL!!! As Pastor Abbott talked about in our service this morning, the beginning of this New Year, is a time to, beyond New years resolutions, to reset and refocus on God. To be faithful to church, to remember to have our time of daily prayer and Bible reading AND when we start to drift, EACH DAY is a NEW DAY to reset and refocus BACK on God!!! Remember my friends, lets NOT fight The Holy Ghost, lets be good children of God, that LISTEN AND OBEY!!! Happy Sunday AND HAPPY RESETTING!!! God bless!!!

Where the wooden spoons DIED...

As I had mentioned a month or so ago HERE that all the wooden cooking spoons were missing, we randomly discovered WHERE most of them were... So you see this couch that we have in our living room, its MASSIVE and in the middle, there is a HUGE space between the couch and the wall...
We happened to look behind there and MY OH MY... the death of MANY wooden spoons was there behind the couch!!!
It was like a WOODEN SPOON CEMETARY!!!
Apparently, SOMEONE or a FEW SOMEONES, felt the need to find a burial spot for all our WOODEN SPOONS!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! I'm happy to report though, that MOST of them of had a MIRACULOUS, RESSURECTION BACK TO LIFE!!! BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I'm telling you all, we serve a MIRACLE-WORKING GOD!!! Heh, heh!!!! ;))))

Family trip to Knotts!!!

 Soooooo my new thing has been designing pic collages on my phone of events, i have quite a few more to do before I get through the Christmas season and I plan to do this for our NYC trip this past October, buuuuut I managed to finishthis past weekend, we planned a last minute trip with my youngest brother (Abie Babie or Abe, or Uncle Abe, Or Uncle Dude OR according to Odin UNCLE GRACE)...bahahaha! and his wife Grace!!!
.
The original plan had been for my brother to bring his wife Grace to the LAX airport so she could go to the Philippines and bring her mom back her to live. (My brother refers to her as Mamma Bella) But last minute my sister was like, WHY don't we go with you and do a Disneyland trip?! I know its hard for Odin to do a lot of things and I'm sure there will be some meltdowns but I really want to take him somewhere. Being the brilliant person that I am, I suggested KNOTTS...its CHEAPER and WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY less crowded, shorter lines and lets face it, HAS WAAAAAAAY better rides than Disneyland unless you go to CA Adventure!!! Plus I feel like Knotts is slightly more conservative than Disneyland...have you ever noticed that, EVERY DISNEY STORY involves magic and evil and weird forces??? I mean, I'm NOT boycotting them...I'm jus SAYIN!!! LOL Knotts seems SLIGHTLY more wholesome!!! (Emphasis on SLIGHTLY!!! LOL)
.
Sooooooooo anyways, KNOTTS it was annnnnnnd Saturday afternoon we were OFF to begin our adventure!!! Btw: I seriously, LOOOOOVE road trips!!! Audio stories, books, and designing collages on my phone the whole ride and exploring Loves and Flying J truck shops...I LOOOOVE IT!!!
I put on the Focus on the Family Radio Theatre of At Home in Mitford...I'm really into this book series right now!!! They are soooooo good!!! I just started the 3rd book and HIGHLY recommend them!!!!
.
So when we got there I was put in charge of finding a place for us to eat...I decided on Claim Jumper because they were a minute away and its been YEARS since I've eaten there and WEEEEELLLLL my main reason for choosing that resturaunt is because they have FREE ROOTBEER BARRELS...I looooove those...and I LOVE FREE!!! LOL So we went buuuut with it being New Years EVE the wait was soooooooooooo LONG...Odin doesn't do good with waits sooooooo...YEAH...LOL Buuuuuuuuuut I still got two handfuls of rootbeer barrels...Hee, hee!!! My sister was like, HOW did you remember they have those??? I'm like, HOW could I forget...ROOTBEER BARRELS????
.
MJ wanted Olive Garden but I was like, NOOOOO that's BORING, we have Olive Garden in AZ, lets do something FUNNNN and NEW and DIFFERENT. We were driving by this place called Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour and I was like OMW you guys look, HOW CUUUUUUUTE!!!
.It really was such a fun, cutesy and happy place...three things I LOVE!!!
I had to take a selfie in our cute little circle booth...OF COURSE!!!
Annnnnnnd since I caught them doing a crazy happy birthday song for some kid, I felt the definite need to inform them that we were there to celebrate my brother's birthday. Now you have to understand that the whole time of service, our waiter was super awkward...NICE but just awkward and pretty on the quiet and reserved side, buuuuuuuuut when it was time to do the birthday song...HE WENT CRAZY WILD!!! Like imagine Joe Velez or Stultz as your waiter (Minus the awkward part) quiet and reserved and then its time to sing Happy Birthday to you and they break out into this wild-crazy-Hawaiian-hula-African-war-dance...NO JOKE!!! BAHAHAHAHA!!! The only one that wasn't completely freaked out was Odin, he thought it was GREAT annnnd our waiter was pretty much his hero in life!!! My brother was like, OK I think that must be what they hired him for!!!! BAHAHA!!!
You can enlarge the picture to see better...bahahaha...and don't worry I recorded it too!!!!
.
Annnnnnnnnnnd when we walked out of Farrell's I saw this and had to get a picture!!!
Totally looks like this dog is driving!!! AHAHAHA!!!
.
It took a little while to fall asleep, there were a few tears before the kids managed to fall asleep, everyone was almost asleep and then my portable bed folded up and I flipped over annnnnd my scream woke everyone back up buuuuut we DID all manage to fall asleep before midnight...I just heard fireworks going off in my sleep!!!!
.
Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnd here we are at KNOTTS waiting for it to open!!!!
I think this pic pretty much explains itself buuuuuut Odin adored SNOOPY!!! I kept telling him that he was going to see him but he was sooooo excitedwhen he actually saw him...it was so cuuuuute!!!
.
soooooooooo I started the day off by going on THE GHOST RIDER!!!
I was superrrr scared to go on this ride, NOT because of it being scary, buuuuut WOULD I FIT???? I was like, You know what, I want to do this, NO ONE in my family was willing to go with me, I'm like, I'm like, I've lost 63 pounds I"M JUST GOING TO TRY...if NOT...I'll just walk away and never see any of these people again anyway!!! I got even more nervous when a lady a little up in the line didn't fit...I'm like, OMW, I know I have to weigh more than her...I'm trying to measure her body and mine with my eyes buuuuut couldn't tell...LOL Buuuuuuuut when I got up there my seat belt fit and everything clicked...YES!!! I was soooooooooo HAPPY AND THRILLED AND EXCITED!!! Fitting on rides was definitely one of the things I was looking forward to with losing weight and this was ONE ride I had accomplished!!!
.
We were about to take off when some guy from England came running up at the last minute and asked if he could ride with me...I was like...SURE...buuuut in my head I was thinking, this is TOTALLY going to ruin my picture, cuz like, I'm really NOT gonna wanna buy one with YOU in it...AHAHAHAHA!!! Anywayz, he was pretty cool, extremely talkative...I'm thinking like, REALLY dude??? we're like doing a fifty thousand drop at like 100 miles an hr, you could stop talking to me and asking questions... til the rides over...I mean, I LIKE TALKING buuuut...I'm having a little difficulty responding to you at the moment...Multi-tasking has never been one of my strengths...JUST SAYIN...BAHAHAHA!!!
.
We went and saw Snoopy On Ice, free admission with the purchase of your Knotts Ticket, it was GREAT!!! I'm not going to lie, I started whooping for Snoopy when he stepped onto the stage!!! There was rumors that the Cartoonist of Peanuts was atheist buuuuut according to this article written in April of 2016, by The Atlantic Times, he was NOT!!!
The coolest part of their little production was that when Linus came out and quoted the scripture"For Unto you...and that's what Christmas is all about!" Tons of people in the audience started clapping and cheering and I thought that was PRETTY AWESOME!!! I couldn't help but think, "THAT AWKWARD MOMENT WHEN... Knottsberry Farm puts on a MORE SPIRITUAL Christmas production than Phoenix First Assembly or The Dream Center...I'm telling you those creepy-seductive dancers they have during the 5-second nativity scene of a two hour Christmas production are just messed up!!! LOL
.
Annnnnnnnnnd all around we had a blast, a very fun way to start the New Year!!!!
I got MJ and I snoopy puppy ears OR Belle ears...
 Btw: Belle is NOT Snoopy's girlfriend but his sister!!!
MJ informed me they were brother and sister and NOT boyfriend and girlfriend, I looked it up and sure enough she's right!!! So I asked her how she knew this and she said BECAUSE MARY, THEY LOOK LIKE EACH OTHER so they MUST be RELATED!! AHAHA...I was like, Weeeeelll when you put it like that, it kind of makes sense!!! LOL
.
We had sooooo much funnn doing this ride, it was SQUISHED, VERY SQUISHED, buuuuut soooooo much funnnnn!!! My brother spun us so fast we were all hysterical the whole time...it took us  a while to figure out how to UNsquish ourselves enough to actually get out...and then I tripped quite a few times on the way to the exit cuz I still couldn't walk straight!!!
 Soooooooo it was FREEZING cold at night!!! I had gone thinking like an Arizonan...I hope this hoody doesn't make me to warm during the afternoon...It did NOT...and was NOT enough to keep my warm at night...I was sooooooooo COLD!!!

 I LOOOOOOVED the pony express!!! It was such a blast...I had ALWAYS wanted to ride it cuz it looks like fun, buuuut i'd always been like, Oh no, what IF I don't fit...that's gonna be embarrassing!!! buuuuut I was like, weeeeeelllll I'm way smaller so i'm just gonna try it...and I fit NO PROBLEM!!!  I ended up on it like 5 times altogether...arms in the air the whole time!!! My sister even liked this ride, weeeeellll she had to keep her eyes shut the whole time buuuut other than that...BAHAHAHA!!!
I also got my brother to go on the Jaguar, he asked me if it was scary and I was like, No I think its like the same as the Pony Express! Afterwards he said it was NOT the same...I was like, OH...it was to me...I mean non-scary rides are all, NON SCARY...LOL!!! FUNNNNNN...buuuut NOT SCARY!!! I had my arms all the way up in the air for that ride the whole time too!!!
.
Buuuuut apparently my brother is scarred from certain rides in life from riding with his big sis(ME) as a child...He still won't ride Ferris Wheels he said, THANKS TO ME!!! All I did was rock it whenever we were stopped...just a little something that MY MOM told me her big brother would do to her and scare her to death...I was like, OH WHAT A GREAT IDEA!!! I wasn't doing it to scare him tho...I was just doing it to make the ride MORE FUNNNN! :)))))
.
HAPPY MONDY Morning SELFIE!!!
This was my outfit for Monday...I was pretty excited about it and in love with the headband from Hobby Lobby...did you know you can get some super cute stuff there for like $5 or under...Normally, anywhere else this fancy of a headband would have been AT LEAST $15!!! Anywayz, I figured I would add these selfie pics IF ONLY because the big sis saw them when I was scrolling through pics and said they were CUTE!! I was like, IF T said it, THEY MUST BE...therefore...I MUST SHARE THEM!!!
Soooooooooo I've had this extreme desire to eat at a RAMEN resturaunt...they have them all over the bay and its ON MY LIST of things to do buuuuut I thought, WHY  NOT try to find one in LA??? Soooooooooo we did!!!
Buuuuuuuuuut after looking over the menu I decided to SKIP IT!!! It was all a little TO AUTHENTICALLY Asian to me and the Ramen stuff was just Asian soups...I was looking for one of those funky places that sells ramen noodle burgers and stuff... This was NOT that!!! Plus my sis in law didn't look impressed and I say IF an Asian ain't impressed with ASIAN FOOD...I'm LEAVING!!! BAHAHAHA!!!
.
Soooooooooo we ended up at...
.
Which was also, ON MY LIST!!!
This place was soooooooooo AWESOME!!! The food was DELICIOUS!!! And the décor...I LOOOOVE THE DECOR!!! When we were walking out I told my brother, FOLLOW ME, you have to see this AMAZING COUCH...its sooooo AWESOME!!! Green couch in the above pic, when he saw it hes like, that's REALLY UGLY!!! I was like, WHAAAAAAAAAT??? how can you say that??? the only thing that would make it MORE AMAZING is if it was HOT-PINK-VELVET!!! Then I WOULD BE IN JAIL for theft!!! Jk...that was a joke peeps...LOL Turns out we actually have two Old Spaghetti Factories here in AZ!!! We all most go sometime!!!
.
Sprinkle cupcakes...my sis in law said IF I didn't go in with my brother for the cupcake we were gonna split, he would get something boring...SHE WAS RIGHT!!! BAHAHA!!
Buuuut it was a pretty delicious kind of boring if ya know what I mean!!!
.
Annnnnnnnd then we saw a PEETS...I got an apple cider...buuut didn't actually finish it till 10 at night...LOL!!!
 After dropping my sis in law off at the airport we began making the trek back to AZ!!!
