Catalina Island

This last weekend we went to Catalina Island.  We woke up at 530am on a Saturday so we could drive to my cousin Amanda's house and catch the boat to Catalina.  It was a beautiful day, sunny and warm.
It was Lindsay's birthday which was a perfect excuse to party!

Here we are waiting for the boat.

When we got on the boat everyone was really excited to get there.  The ocean was a little rough and it took about 25minutes before a lot of the passengers started getting motion sickness!  Thank god no one in our group got sick (at least not on the way there).

We can just forget about getting a good photo hahha

It was such a nice day, after our first bar stop for drinks and snacks we headed for the beach where you are allowed to drink!

We all layed out and I got burned, yay!  Amanda was freaking out because there was another girl with her bathing suit on?  I kept saying who cares hahahha

We had an emergency bag rearranging time in the middle of the walkway.  Its amazing what is considered an emergency when you are drunk.


Shots shots shots!

Lindsay and Wes on her birthday!

For some reason Grant put on Amanda's sweater lol.  Later he did not even remember taking this picture.

We ended the afternoon where we began, go figure.  Lindsay had the birthday song sung and we headed back to the boat.
After we magically got home we had a dance party till late into the night.
The weekend goes by too fast!

I called Grant at lunch and he let me know that he fell off the ladder at work so he went home.
I immediately thought why did you not call me to tell me this?  Then I thought are you ok?
Turns out the ladder slipped out from under him and he fell on his butt on top of the ladder.
He also cut his elbow, but thank goodness he is fine!  So tonight we headed out to get some gas
for my car and when we returned and parked the car on our street Grant got out of the car and
found his underwear sitting in the gutter.  He picked them up and said look its a lucky day after all!
Gutter Undies!

Shopping and Flowers

This weekend flew by just like every weekend does.
On Friday night I went out to dinner with my aunt and it was really nice to catch up!

Saturday Grant went surfing in the morning and I worked on my painting.  For lunch we walked to the Blue Frog and had hot dogs.  It was really good.  On the walk to lunch I saw these pretty flowers and it inspired me to get more flowers for my tiny garden.

After lunch we went to Lacey's house to visit.  Hazel is just as cute as ever!

The guys went across the street to watch the fight at the neighbors house and Dean was really mad that he was not invited!  He watched out the window knowing they were over there even though we insisted they were out for a walk.

Sunday we relaxed, exchanged some clothes at the mall, and went to home depot for flowers.
Grocery shopping turned out to be a major mission when the lady in front of us in line decided to pay with 3 different types of payment including a check and then stand there and read her whole receipt.  I was starting to worry my Popsicles would not make it!

Here is our little garden!  In the open areas we have put wild flowers so hopefully it will all come together!

Life and clothes!

Does your life ever remind you of the movie groundhog day?  Every weekday I feel like it is groundhog day.  I go to sleep only to wake up with the same exact senerio happening everyday... I guess that is life?
Anyways I really need to go shopping for some new clothes because I don't have much that will work to wear to work.  I have a lot of summer stuff and a few sweaters, but I don't have anything that is cool but appropriate for work, maybe its because I left all of my clothes in NZ.  Anyways these are a few looks that I am looking for.
Here is a look I need to avoid for work, but would be great for summer!

I need clothes!!!

You can find the links to these pictures here at my Pinterest.

Sunday Planting

Sunday I woke up pretty early for having been up so late the night before.  I cleaned the house and it was only 930am so I thought I would go to the mall to exchange the jeans I bought Grant for the right size.  He was asleep, still hung over.  So I get to the mall around 10am and I learn that the mall does not open till 11am!

So I gave up on the mall idea and headed to home depot.  I decided to get some more flowers and a few things we needed around the house.  When I got home Grant was still sleeping lol.
I planted all my flowers and then realized I should really think about how this will look hahahha.
What I plan to do is get some wild flower seeds and mix up the dirt and sprinkle the seeds and hopefully it will look less like a dirt pile!

Our friend Katherine who could not make it to Grant's birthday stopped by our area to give him this yummy rice crispy treat cake.  It is so cute and tasted really good!

I made it through Monday, only 4 more days to go till the weekend!

Grant's 30th Birthday

Yesterday was Grant's 30th birthday.  Since he was born in NZ we celebrated his b-day on the 14th even though his American birthday is on the 15th (in other words NZ is a day ahead of us).
We decided to go out to dinner with some friends and then to a bar near our house.

Amanda, Keith and Wes all came over early for a few beers before we took off to dinner.

At dinner we met up with Scooter and Zelda and Nick.  After dinner we went to a bar for more drinking and dancing.

In the back of this above picture you can see Grant high fiving some girls hahhahha.

The whole walk home we were parcoring? It is where you walk and anything that comes in your path you jump over or walk over.  Something like that.

I guess you could say we were all a little drunk hahahha.

At the end of the night Grant and the guys were bush diving.
I am just happy we finally made it home.

It was a really fun night.

On April 11, 2012 Hazel June was born!
My cousin Lacey finally had her baby.  Yesterday we went after work to meet the little one =)
It rained during the day so we had a really nice sunset with all the clouds.

Brandon made this face on their tree and that was the first thing Grant noticed when he got out of the car hahahha.

Little Hazel

I just love holding her, she is so super cute!

Dean seemed pretty excited to be a big brother.  I know when she gets a little older they are going to have a lot of fun together.

This just makes me want to be around little ones more often!
