King Pins!

Last night, Chris and I finally got to go out with some of our friends that we don't get to see a lot of. With all of us married, working hard, and having the chaos of our day to day lives, it's been a challenge to get together.
We met Erin(Peanut), Adam, Laura, and Greg at a local Bar/Grill for some great food, needed drinks, and good conversation. After leaving the bar we all headed down to the bowling alley, where more people met us.
Bowling to us is always fun. We don't do it as often as we use to, but every time we do, Chris and I get competitive! The first game I beat everyone with a 122 score (not my best, but it beat everyone else). The second game Chris won with a high of 141 and I followed in second with a 130. Needless to say, it was great for us to beat the others sharing the lane with us (sorry guys)!
It was a great night and we hope it's not too long till we can get together again. We're up to kicking your butts anytime!! :-)

Tooting my own Horn!

This past week, I got promoted. I am now the Lead Processor for my team. To some people this may mean nothing, to others it may not be that big of a promotion, but for a company that is fastly growing everyday and every supervisory position is full....this is a big deal! :-) I have a lot more responsibility and a chance to make a difference in the way things are processed. I'm very excited about this opportuninty and where it may take me.
Wish me luck in my new position!

What do you think of tattoos? Some people like them and others hate them. Some people love what they represent and others hate everything about them. I respect that about people, everyone has an opinion. What I don't like is that because people have tattoos, they automatically make a judgement about that person. They are trashy, low-class, unprofessional, whatever the case may be. However, I don't look at myself as any of those things. I have a good job, I dress nice, and most days I'm very professional! It's a shock to most people that I've gone through getting 5 tattoos. I bet some of you didn't know I had that many, did you? I have one on my lower back (which was my first one), then I got one on my left ankle, then one on my upper right shoulder blade. Later down the road, I realized that one was a mistake and got it covered up. My last one was on the top of my right foot (which I might add, I get a lot of compliments on)! So yes, I've gone through the process 5 times, but only have 4 that you can see. Nonetheless, a couple of years ago Chris said he finally wanted a tattoo. He went and got his first tattoo on his right calf. This past Christmas he asked for gift cards to our local shop that we obviously frequent, he was getting the itch to get another one.
So this past Friday, that's exactly what he did. He started off with a dragon on his leg and decided to keep going with the theme. So he got a tribal dragon on his left forearm. I, myself am getting the itch for another. I know what you're thinking....don't you have enough! If you don't have any, you don't understand. They truly are addictive. I already know what I want, it's the matter of finding where I want to put the next piece of art.

Work and then Play!

Saturday Chris had to work most of the day. So while he was gone I decided to do some work of my own. Chris and I had talking about finally getting some work done in our kitchen. Living there for over a was about time. So first things first, the boarder HAD to come down. For those of you that don't know, Chris and I HATE wallpaper. So that's what I did. I didn't get it all finished, but a pretty good start. I plan on finishing it this weekend.
Later that evening Chris and I went on a 'date'! We went out to dinner to Tony Roma's (amazing food, I might add), then we went to a movie. We saw I Am Legend. What a GREAT movie....I recommend it to everyone.
It was a pretty relaxing weekend, nothing too major went on. Hopefully soon I'll be taking some pictures. Hope every ones week is good!

Not Much......

Since the New Year, not much has been going on. Not that I'm complaining. With the stress of the holiday season, it's nice to finally get a break.
Last weekend Chris had guard and I just did some things around the house. We've both been working hard and back to doing overtime.
Hope all is going well with everyone and stay healthy! Keep checking on us throughout the weekend, I will be posting!
