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

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!!!!

Question for you:

What would be/ is your favorite vacation spot?

-I really really really want to go to Hawaii and Australia

F4 Reunion in Nash

I headed to Nashville this past weekend with two of my very good friends, to visit our friend Sarah. We all graduated from nursing school together three years ago, and while in school, we were called the F4 (at least between the four of us haha)

We always have a blast, especially on road trips. on the way to Nashville, we stopped in Metropolis to visit Superman and Wonderwomen

 When we FINALLY arrived, we snacked on veggies.

We then got dressed and took a cab downtown

For dinner we headed to Demo’s for dinner and started with cheesy bread. YUM!

I dont have many food pictures, because when I started two of my friends were cool with it. My other friend said “are you taking pictures of the food? WHO DOES THAT?” So I stopped and just took pictures of people…….

I had quite a few of these

This piano at one of the bars, had all types of instruments coming out of it. It was pretty cool. Another bar we went to was COVERED in writing. I found this one pretty cool!

“you are more than just a man’s opinion of you”

We were only in nashville for about 24 hours, but we sure had a blast. We stayed out till 4am…………ummm I havent done that since before my son was born 5 years ago. So the next day I was NOT feeling good at all. I only took two pictures, but you can see I look like I was having a rough morning


Question for you:

If you are a blogger, do you have other blogging friends? If they are not, do they understand when you take pictures of your food?
