.Valley Ho.

August 23rd, 2008
The day that changed my life forever.
I met my Levi at a pool party in Gilbert, Az.
To celebrate our "2yr" anniversary from when we first met
 (and then maybe kissed the day after...)
I surprised him with a getaway to this place
and stayed in this fancy studio room

I had the car packed and ready to go. He had no idea that when we left Friday afternoon at 3pm to go run some "errands", 
that we wouldn't return until the following day at 1pm. heeheehee
Once checked in We went and grabbed an early dinner at RA-happy hour of course, and ordered way too much, so found other ways to finish it. Went to Last Chance and found some steals, jammed out to our favorite tunes with the window's down to enjoy the fabulous weekend weather, had Sugar Bowl for dessert and rushed into the nearest store to buy a deck of cards and Monster's for some late night games of War, that Levi was soo confident that he would whoop my bootie at
Our bodies love us and woke us up at 6:30 the next morning. We were WIDE awake.
So we went and grabbed breakfast at a fun little place near Scottsdale Fashion Square. 
Levi had the most delicious cinnamon french toast and I indulged in on
 lemon poppyseed muffin and breakfast shake.
We got back to our hotel and before we went to catch some sun rays, I took a lovely bubble bath 
and we watched Transformers. 
It was a perfect escape and we enjoyed each other's company even more so.
Thank you Levi for flirting with me at the Pool Party 2 years ago and getting my number
at Rocky's Farwell the next day! I love you more and more every day.

My girlfriend Lindsey Hansen married her best friend today.
I am so happy for the 2 of them, they make a perfect team together!
Their reception was gorgeous.
Is anyone else jealous of her long luscious locks??

We had her bachelorette party last weekend. 
Played the classic interview video game that had Scott answering questions
and if Linz didn't answer it right, she had to put a piece of bubble gum in her mouth.
Needless to say she had about 8 in there...bless her heart!
we LOVE you Linz!!!


.You Say Jump...I Say How High.

And jump WE did!!! 
we just didn't get a picture of me...but I jumped off it twice!
We got invited with 16 other's to go to Fossil Springs.
 I am not going to lie, I was some what dreading the 7 mile hike...until I found out there was another route that was only 2 miles ROUND TRIP!! 
Cha-Ching! Count me in! I'll do that any day of the week!
Ok so maybe it was basically a nature walk, no hiking really. 
There was families with their toddlers! It is such a fun DAY activity. 
I plan on doing this with our children.
There was this Natural Spring that Levi had found.

 I had never seen one before, it was really cool to see how the water just comes up like that! 
Of course he had to get in and test it out!
You can see how blue the water was too right where it was coming up!!!
He had convinced some of the other boys that were with us to get in as well and to 
also try out his slide. 
They took a huge tree branch and used it as the "slide test dummy" 
to see how deep it was. 
No one was hurt while doing it.
Fossil Springs Crew

If anyone is interested in going, Levi and I will gladly go with! 
Driving a truck is ideal, bring some sunscreen and a light lunch/snacks and we're good to go!!
It's mandatory that you stop for Home Made Ice Cream and Mexican Food on the way home.



Cibo hold a very special place in mine and Levi's heart.
This is where we had our 1st Real Date almost 2 years ago.
It's located in down town Phx and is ever so yummy.
Thank you Britt, Cody, Em and Jon (not pictured) for enjoying this deliciousness with us!!

.Tuscany Villa.

A couple weeks ago, Levi and I got invited to stay in a Villa up in Sedona with 2 of my sisters and their husbands. Being an AZ native, I can't believe it took me 24yrs to finally go there! It is beyond gorgeous. I hope Levi and I can go back soon and stay a little longer than 12 hours so we can enjoy the small town shops, food and some hiking.
Once we got up there around 730, just as the sun was setting. So pretty! We stayed basically on a golf course. There were maybe 20 Villa's total surrounding the area. Pictures, words and description don't do justice how amazing this place really was. Levi seriously contemplated not waking up with me at 530 the next morning to drive back to Mesa with me, just so he could stay and golf with our brother in-law's.
I would have too...
The entry way into the Villa was like we were in a movie. And when I think about our dream home, these pictures are what pop into my head.
This was our room. Since we showed up last, we got last picks. Last picks wasn't so bad!
Outside our room
The Master Bath. 
Has anyone else dreamed of sitting in a tub like this, full of bubbles? 
Reminds me of the Note Book.
This is the inside of the Villa, view from the back patio. The opening right here has sliding window doors. 
Mmmm to have the cool breeze blowing through your house all night long...

The Master Bedroom. It's own "privacy hang out cushion spot". Oh and don't worry, the master bath also has an Out Door shower. Completely private of course. Another dream of mine...

Since our trip to Sedona was short and sweet, we decided to stay in for the evening. Our brother-in-law  Rick is the master when it comes to grilling steak and shrimp. Mmm...and Hills and Michelle worked their magic with the wedge salads and boiled corn. Levi and I showed up just in time to help set the table basically.
Hot Tub Time!

Driving Home at 5:30 am so I could make it in time to help out with a fundraiser.
