Surprise, surprise!!

Thank you everyone for your prayers in our behalf with Chris's job situation. He has finally found a new job and we are so excited. He is going to be starting on the 30th, so I think he's sad that he only has one more week off, but he is so happy to have a job again. So thanks again!

Now that its all over, I can tell everyone about Chris's surprise trip. Before he started working again, I wanted to go on a trip. So I called his dad and he agreed to fly us to VEGAS. I had his dad call him to invite us to go flying, so Chris just thought we were going to go up north and have lunch. I packed all our stuff and was able to sneak it on the plane without him noticing.

After we landed, a guy from the airport came to help us get all our stuff out and loaded it up in a van. He asked how long we would be there and Gary told him that it would be overnight. Chris was just totally just going with the flow and never questioned anything, even though his dad had said we would be there over night and we were unpacking luggage. I had to finally tell him that I was in on the whole thing; he still almost didn't believe me. He was totally surprised!

While we were there, we ate TONS of food! We had a buffet dinner at the Belagio and it was so good. I think my favorite thing that I ate was chocolate mousse, SO TASTY!! We also were able to see a show, Le Reve. Its one of the cirque du soleil shows. It was so cool but also kinda weird. We only did a little gambling, $11, and lost all of it. On Friday we did some shopping at the outlet mall but didn't really buy anything exciting. It was so great to get away and even better to be able to surprise Chris like that. Thank you so much, Gary and Debbie, for such a fun trip, we both had a fabulous time!!!

Then the day after we got home, Chris surprised me! I guess we got a coupon in the mail for new phones. We both got new blackberry storms for a smokin deal! They are so cool and I feel like all we have done since we got them is played with them. I still don't know how to even use a lot of the functions, its too fancy for my blood! I'm sure I am going to waste a lot of time with my new toy. Thanks BABY!!

This is what we have looked like since we got our new phones

And here's the phone, doesn't it look cool!?!?!

Not in my Benz

After leaving the store today, my car wouldn't start! I tried a few times but nothing would work (its definitely time for a new battery but haven't really had time to get one). There was a guy that walked right by me while I was trying to start it and didn't even stop to make sure I was ok. I finally got out to see if there was anyone in the parking lot that could jump it and the only person I saw was the jerk who didn't offer help. So I asked him if he wouldn't mind helping me jump my car and what does he say? "Not in my benz!" Can you freaking believe that?! Unwilling to help a woman in distress because it might hurt his precious benz! It wasn't even a really nice one, Get over yourself! Don't worry though, I was able to find someone else who was more than willing to help me out. I'm so glad that I don't have to deal with people like that all the time!

A good thing gone bad...

Yesterday, I decided it would be funny if we TP-ed Chris's sister Jen's house. We were out in the area and thought about how fun it used to be so we wanted to do it again. We did a drive by and the house was dark and Jen's car was gone, so we figured they were out. So we bought the cheapest toilet paper we could find and went to town. We were being so sneaky and were so proud of ourselves. We really didn't do all that much, plus it was windy so the toilet paper kept blowing away! We got in the car to make our get-away...only the car wouldn't start! Are you kidding me?!?!? Chris was feeling so mad but all I could do was laugh. We decided to call them to see how long they were going to be gone, only to find out that TJ was home sick. He had been home the whole time and had no idea we were there, and neither did the dog. We stayed and hung out for a while and Jen was nice enough to help us jump start our car. Needless to say we had to clean up the yard first. Although it was not the way we planned to end the evening, it was great to spend some time with them!
Here we are sad about our car

Now that I'm looking at the pictures, it really looks pathetic, but I promise it looked better than it does here. The wind really did keep blowing it away.
