January 9, 2012I am of the opinion that one needs an entire new wardrobe when they go on vacation so while I out specifically shopping for Josh only because I had been shopping for myself for the last 2 months. Anyway, I found this! I've been dying for a little dress to wear with cowboy boots and I found it so I had to have it!

I witnessed an absolutely terrible wreck today. One minivan ran a redlight and hit another minivan directly in the driver side door. The minivan that was hit went up onto its' side and for a minute all you could see was the bottom of the van. I immediately thought that since it was a van, there were kids in the van. Luckily, the lady had just dropped them off at the school a block behind us. It wouldn't have been appropriate for me to take a picture of the wreck so today's picture is one of me and Josh cuddled up on the couch catching up on the Bachelor and Biggest Loser.

This is the engine to my truck. My truck that decided the cool thing to do would be to not run for over 24 hours. Josh and his dad replaced the starter, fuses, cables and tightened some nuts and bolts but it still wouldn't start. They finally towed it (illegally, may I add) to the professionals down the street where they replaced the one cable Josh and his dad didn't think to replace because "there's no way it could be that wire".

You are looking at my first ever pot of chili! I was so nervous making this but, honestly, it was probably one of the easiest things I've ever made. In the words of Josh and my brother, it was "excellent". I had some pretty big shoes to fill and both my mom and mother-in-law make awesome chili but I think I can hang with them pretty darn well. :)

I had the pleasure of pushing Josh and this scaffolding around over 82,000 square feet of vacant warehouse.

Today was the annual boat show at the convention center. Of course we wouldn't have missed it. We put off finishing the warehouse job above just so we could attend the boat show. This picture was taken on top of a Sea Ray cruiser that cost $379,000!

In preparation for our Vegas trip this week, I treated myself to a manicure and pedicure after working and the boat show all weekend. I did get the spa pedicure and can I just say that I almost fall asleep every time! The place I go gives you a calf and foot massage for 10 minutes before placing steaming hot towels around your calves. Heaven!!!

I started packing last night which included getting all of the shoes I am taking out. I snapped this picture before I left for work this morning. There are 14 pairs of my shoes pictured here and 2 of Josh's. I am adding 2 more pairs for me tonight. In all, I'm taking 16 pairs of shoes (for a 6 day trip) and Josh is only taking 4. I might have an addiction....
