Webs, Tennis and Twirps

Since the weather has been warming up we figured it was about time to turn on the ol swamp cooler. But... one slight problem... we noticed that there was a mass amount of cob webs that had accumulated where the air blows out. In fear that once we turned on the swamp cooler that spider webs would fly all over, Dallas got our handy dandy vacuum and took care of it. :) 

So Dallas and I have been wanting to play tennis for the past month or so but every time we would plan it it seemed to rain that day or be too cold. Finally, when I heard that this past weekend would be in the 70's and 80's, I knew it would be the perfect time! We found cheap racquets so we just bought some. All I got to say is tennis is definitely not my calling in life but it is seriously  lots of fun! The reason why our "action" shots above have a ball stuck in the racquet is because I kept getting the ball stuck their instead of actually hitting the ball!  
Oh and remember how I said it would be warm t…

Missing the Familia

All I got to say is.... What a year it has been so far! Gee Whiz! I am pretty sure I have said this before but this year has definitely had its ups and downs. But I am so grateful for first off such a wonderful husband. I just love him so much! He is truly the bestest friend I could ever ask for :)  Last weekend I realized I hadn't seen my brother and his family who live in New Mexico since July of last year, my sister and her family who live in San Fran since Thanksgiving and the rest of my family for almost a month.( by the way going without seeing "the rest of my family" for a month is actually really long since I am only an hour away) Realizing this made me long SO badly to see them! Last night I just bawled to Dallas saying how badly I want to even just give my mom and dad a hug(i can be a tad bit emotional.... ha ha) And he so sweetly says "Well we can go up their on Sunday if you want" Man I just love him! He puts up with my emotional self so well :) 


So I realized I have been a little bit of a hypocrite when it comes to blogging. I bug my family from out of state to post on their blogs and post pictures so I can see their cute families. I guess I am just kind of sad that they are growing up away from me where I can't see their progress in life as easily. Anyways, I realized I have been awful at putting up pictures and posting on our blog lately so I need to be better before I hassle anyone else about it! I am also really bad at taking pictures so I grabbed the camera and took a few pictures in front of my favorite tree outside our door so this post wouldn't be totally boring. 

You probably can't really tell in the pictures but I got a hair cut a few weeks ago. It was just a trim and lots of layers. My good friend Cassidy just got a job at a fancy salon at the gateway but she has a three month trial period where she isn't "on the floor" cutting clients hair and once a week she takes a class from her boss.…
