Time Out

Let me apologize in advance for the spacing issues on this blog. I have no idea what is wrong or how to fix it. I tried. I apologize.

So I took a little time out from blogging and now I'm back! Hopefully, I will have more to blog about in the coming weeks. It's been a fun-filled summer so far and I have lots of pictures to share. I think I'll share new pics with each blog. First, I'll share a few things we did while my mother-in-law and sister-in-law came to visit. They were here for two weeks and we tried our hardest to stay very busy and make the most of their time with us. We visited so many places and explored our new home turf! I love Colorado more and more each day. But, I am beginning to miss Hawaii more and more as well...well, I miss the beaches and my girlfriends. I made some of my best friends while living there.

Anyway, back to their visit. I'm sorry if these posts are a little out of order; who am I kidding, you guys have no idea what days we did what and frankly, you probably could care less :)
The last weekend they were here Jeff's little sister and I went to a Keith Urban concert. This was my first KU concert and Leslie's 5th...maybe 6th? That girl is IN LOVE (total understatement) with him and is a member of his fan should see her room. If only I had taken a picture of her room when I was there during Easter. Well, here are a few of the better pictures from the concert.
We waited in line for nearly 6 hours in the RAIN!

Then, once we got in the arena we had to stand in mud the entire concert!

Leslie & I waiting on KU
Leslie worked her way up to the second row!
Istayed back in the fourth row as I was afraid of being beat up by the crazy KU fans!

This was the best pic all night in addition to about 150 other pictures! No editing was done to this just came out perfect!

We did so many other fun things, but that's for another day........
As for Fourth of July, I went to church while Jeff slept after a 24 hour shift. That afternoon we went to Amanda & Daniel's for some yummy hamburgers, brats, corn, beans, and angel food cake. This was day 4 of nausea and complete feeling of helplessness. Until today, that meal was my last full meal that my stomach could handle. Thankfully, I'm ALL better now. Then, we enjoyed not one...not two...not three...but four fireworks shows right from the comfort of their pasture...well, not really but we were accompanied by their horses :)
So today I spent a few hours at work preparing for our new school to open in a few weeks. Then, I went to the Jeep dealership to have an issue looked at (nothing major...thank Goodness) and I spotted a South Carolina sticker on the back of a truck with a Pennsylvania plate. You know the this....

So we struck up a conversation and turns out he lived in Greenville for several months and then moved to Myrtle Beach and now he's living in tiny little Pueblo. Small World! I didn't give him too many details, but he stayed in the exact same hotel that Jeff & I had our wedding in 2006. It made me miss my roots and good friends in good ol' SC.

So, I've been having a great time catching up on all of my favorite blogs. One of which, I highly recommend you read, it's one that I've mentioned on here before. No one can tell her story better than she can. Her life is truly a testimony to her faith. Anyway, she just gave birth to her first baby and his a micro-preemie. I encourage you to read her story and pray for her son. I absolutely love her blog. You can't help but continue to wish the best for her growing family.

I hope you all have a great Thursday and come back now ya hear!
