The Readers Are Revolting

I hear that my readers are outraged and demand blogging. I have actually heard this from two different sources.

First off, ARIZONA for the Hart and Becky wedding. It was two weeks ago and I STILL have not blogged about it yet - I've been insanely busy, more on that later. Anyway, I also have not had time to look for my camera charger so I haven't been able to download the pictures yet either. Boo! But Geoff and I got in on Friday afternoon and ended up with a Mustang as a rental... Geoff was WAY excited, he loves Mustangs! We checked in at our hotel and cleaned up a bit, then met Emily, Kathleen, Stacey, and Tim at Grilled Expedition for happy hour. I was so nervous... I felt like it was a first date rather than meeting old friends! I think I was nervous to introduce them to Geoff. But it was great! Emily and I talked about how Patrick secretly had these planning skills all along and he could have been the one to plan stuff in high school! Dang... he did put together a great night. After that we went to Gordon Biersch for dinner... it was good but a little cold and windy since we sat outside! Then we went to The Library to hang out. That was REALLY fun because the wedding party came and joined us there after the rehersal dinner, so we saw Hart and Becky, Anthony, and Nikki. It was such a college bar!! Very fun. At one point "Whoop there it is" came on and Hart, Emily, Patrick, and I all jumped up off of the couch we were sitting on and started dancing! It was so random... it brought back memories from Spirit Squad in 7th grade. We had a special dance to that song. Hilarious! Just a wonderful night.

Saturday was fun! We met The Cohens (Randy and Laura... friends of mine from grade school that I got together in high school and later got married) for breakfast at The Waffle House. Funny! Laura and Geoff both know me so well so it was funny to listen to them talking about me. Hehe. :) Then Geoff and I drove around, Geoff got his hair cut, we played mini golf, etc. Then we went to the wedding and the reception and had another great night! It was a beautiful wedding... I ADORE the pink and orange color combo and fun was had by all. Geoff and I are these cake snobs so we stared at the cake beforehand and commented on how much better we could do - yeah right. Seriously the cake tasted AWESOME though!! Sooo yummy. I think it was French Buttercream which I REALLY need to learn how to make! :)

Sunday morning we had an early flight out and then I was soooo sick. I didn't even go to my cake class, boo! I stayed in bed all day. Monday I had my second day of work at Hallmark, Tuesday I had Remicade, Wednesday I had Hallmark, Thursday I had gym class and cake class, and by Friday I was just fried. On Saturday morning I quit Hallmark... I know, that's terrible, but I was finding that I wasn't loving it and my friend Kendra pointed out "if you don't NEED a second job and you don't LOVE your second job, what's the point of having a second job?" Good point, so I quit.

Sunday morning I made a beautiful daisy cake (which I didn't take pictures of, I'm sorry!) to take to Geoff's parents for Mothers Day! It was A HIT and I got my first "gig" decorating a cake for a graduation (Geoff's brother Trevor's girlfriend Kristy's high school graduation). YAY! I'm soooo excited. It was a fabulous night.

This week has been insane at work and stuff at home has been busy too. Wednesday we drove down to Sheridan (about an hour and a half south) so Geoff could pick up his dad's old motorcycle. For those that don't know, his dad passed away in February of 2000 from cancer. His Uncle Jeff had been holding onto the bike (he has a HUGE barn) and asked Geoff if he wanted it. Geoff jumped at the chance so we went down right away to pick it up! He worked on it all day yesterday... I'm so excited for him. It's really special that he can have something of his dad's. :)

Tonight we're going to a BBQ at Kendra and Beau's and I have another "gig" for tomorrow morning - decorating a birthday cake for my coworker Cindy's daughter Emily! Very exciting.

So lots of excitement going on... just too busy to write about it. Maybe more next week! Oh and some pics if I manage to find my camera this weekend! I'm headed home now... it is time to be done!

I'll leave you with one more thing... Wednesday I was soooo busy at work and needed to get out for a little bit, so Geoff was nice enough to take me to lunch. We went to BW3s and they have this little on screen trivia thing that you can play with the whole country at other BW3s, Old Chicago, Applebees, and other restaurants. So we decided to play, and there are 7 questions worth 1000 points each. You get 1000 points if you answer correctly immediately, then it keeps going down as you take more time. I got about 6500 points and beat Geoff and he was mad – then we saw that on that round, I beat EVERYONE IN THE COUNTRY!!! I was soooo proud. Plus the local BW3s has a top winners board for the month, so I bumped down someone with about 5500 points that had been there since May 1!! HAHA. Then we played again… and I got about 5500 points and came in 12 in the country and then I got number TWO on the BW3 top local winners board. So I have the number 1 and number 2 spot. YAAAAAAAY for me. I’m sooo excited it was so fun!
