 It's official, I am a professional! My Boss felt the need to give us business cards.... so I can pedal myself?
And what does a professional do? Burn her mode of employment....
The culprit? A POPTART! I hardly ever eat these things and as I pulled the apple cinnamon delish out of the toaster, the frosting ever so lightly touched my finger and got stuck! I couldn't get to the sink fast enough. :(
Now all morning I've been trying to keep ice on it, of course wearing laytex gloves only magnifies the heat but in my downtime I've been managing to. However I have found that typing is difficult without a necessity pointer finger.... As my mom said right after it happened, and I was trying not to cry, "Two positive from this, at least it's Thursday, and it happened to your left hand." Thanks for the positive side mom :)

  I wish my finger had one of these to cool it down... HEAVEN IN A CUP!!

It is official people..... I'm getting OLDer
It's been almost two weeks now that I've been 27 and already Alex called me "old." However in my defense I think it has to do more with my job than with the actual number of days I've been on this earth.
 I share my birth date with the great Michael Jackson and although I don't have his love for the spotlight, I could not keep quiet  about the talent of my family and friends.
For my birthday my SIL Elaina made me this AMAZING Moose cupcake
 She knows I love moose and found this idea in a cupcake book. It took her a while to make it and it turned out PERFECTLY!! Such a surprise!! Thank you!
 My friend Mandi made me this cake as well - do these people know me or what?
I LOVED it!!
I did notice no one put candles on any of these cakes......
My birthday was such a fantastic day. I LOVE having a summer birthday. 
I thank all my friends and family for sharing the love that day. Whether it was through e-mail, text, phone call, card, birthday lunch .... or a shamrock and a moose I felt so thankful for everyone who took the time to send a shout out.

sUMeR LuVin!!

I have the bike of my dreams!
Alex and I decided to get bikes since we didn't go to Lake Powell this summer. I do wear a helmet, but this was my test drive. I fell in love and we ride them everywhere now. The library seems to be popular and anywhere else that can be a bike destination.
THANK YOU Sun Cruz!!
Brooke knows my style :)
Thank you for the sunglasses, they match PERFECTLY!

About 2 weeks ago my sister, her dog Zeus (and new puppy Thor) and brother's girlfriend, Maria, were on their way home from picking up the new puppy Thor and were involved in a car accident. As they were crossing an intersection a lady turned left into them. Even though they had to use the jaws of life to cut my sister out and were taken to the ER, they left a few hours later with bruises, sore muscles and a little heartache about her totaled car.
*The puppies were also ok

Her car is the one on the left - firemen are extricating her from the vehicle at this time.
Alex and I went shooting last weekend with Papa Bear and I have to say, after 2 years, I wasn't too bad.
(Gun placement was Alex's request)
I was getting my hair cut at my best friend Amanda's new Sports Clips and she offered to give Alex a neck trim....
This is what he ended up with. Mohawk and STEPS!! I LOVE it
Throwback to the 90's -HECK YES
