traveling the world

GOOD NEWS: I just finished working four 12 hour shifts in a row! Thank goodness.

BAD NEWS: I am now officially in a coma. Im tired! And I have a ton to do

  • Pack for vacation (we leave saturday!)
  • Get school stuff for andrew
  • Visit grandma
  • Massage
  • Grocery shopping for car ride
  • Pedicure
  • Bike ride (maybe…)
  • Sleep in (if Im lucky)

So our trip on saturday is to michigan!!!!!! My family went there for YEARS (and by years I mean like 12!)

 we took a few years to visit other places in the world like:

  1. MEXICO 2009 I went here with two of my best friends . It was PURE HEAVEN!

            2.) Fort Myers 2010 with my mom and andrew

 I needed some time away from St Louis with Andrew

           3.) Disney world with the whole family (without my older brother) 

 it was andrews first plan ride! We went in 2009 and it was mine and Andrew’s first time to disney!


       4.) Fort Morgan 2011

I went with the whole family minus the little brother

         5.) Ireland Best. Trip. EVER. (minus my younger brother)

          6.) Destin 2008

This trip was just with my mom, dad, and andrew. I needed this trip more than ever, this was right after I ended things with Ian.

         7.) Chicago 2011.

Andrew and I went to chicago to visit my cousin Jill and visit LEGO LAND!

       8.) Trip to Nashville 2011

with the F4 (girls I went to SIUE nursing school with)

             9.) Branson 2011

with the BFFs (girls I work with, for the most part. yes we call eachother the BFFs- we even have shirts for some events!)

      10.) Lake of the Ozarks 2010

I went and stayed all by myself! (Andrew was just a few miles away with Ian’s family)

11.) Table Rock Lake 2008

I went with my mom and dad, and Ian stayed for 1/2 the trip.

Im sure there are more trips, but can you see the trend??? we love to go to the beach! And I traveled A LOT this year so far


This is the Last time we went to michigan! Andrew was just a year old

We will see how this year goes! I CANT WAIT!!!!

Better get to bed busy day tomorrow- Im having a ME day! Cant wait!

Branson has to come to an end

You can check up on the girls weekend here and here

On Saturday morning I laid in bed till 10am, I RARELY EVER get to do this!  since we were all hungry, and didnt want breakfast-  we started the grill!

Lunch was delicious burgers (I ate mine without a bun). Just dipping it in ketchup! then I had a salad on the side, and some chips.

Then winery time! We went to the stonehill Winery for samples!

Back in the day, they would hold wine in here, and someone would have to crawl in there to clean it out! crazy!

After that we went SHOPPING. My favorite part of the trip!

I got several goodies for my house and my son.
 then played Just Dance 2! I got sweaty doing this!
just dance 2!

 Then it was time for bed. The next day it was time to go home……..



Question for you:

Do you like to go to wineries?

-I love going there! Especially on a nice day! (the price stinks though)

Road trip

Last Thursday, it was time for a ROAD TRIP!

I went with four other girls that I work with to Branson, MO. We stayed in amazing cabins.

beautiful cabin

On the way, we stopped by Lambert’s restaurant in Springfield, MO. This is a picture from my table.

the rolls dont come on the table, they throw them to yoU!

Once we got got to branson, we unpacked and made sure the refigerator was full!

We didnt eat lunch till 4, so dinner was just left overs. but we did have a few of these

And finally it was time for the hot tub! (It was so hot, we had to sit on the edge every once in awhile)

(thats me sitting in the hot tub on the right)
