2 posts in 1 month!

Look at me! 2 posts in one month, dare I say there may be 3.... So Steve and I went to Hawaii back in November with our good friends, The Dastrup's. It was a riot! We spent a whole week in Kona and enjoyed every minute of it! It was quite the adventure getting there, but hey...after a few extra plane rides and a night in Maui, we made it!!

Yes...i am fully aware of the random man with wicked sideburns on his legs! As I was looking thru all our photos of the trip I realized that we took a few pics of random people doing random, yet memorable things....Lol! Sorry if this is anybody's relative, but it was too good to pass up!

Laker turned 4 in December and celebrated with many dragons...If you know my child you will know that he LOVES dragons! It was fun, I cant believe how fast they grow up. And yes, Oakley is still a red head with a pretty rad mullet!

I still have my horse that I am proud to say that I am now riding! I have put about 7 or 8 rides on her and she is doing great. I got her as a yearling and she is now 2 turning 3 this year. She is doing amazing and i would have a picture of this, but its a little hard to take a picture while riding....

Steve is busy gearing up for a new year with Landscaping, i am going to miss my "Winter Steve", but i know he always come back around November... if any of my readers need pest control, fertilizing, landscaping or maintenance services (all three of you..) leave me a comment! He is the best in town!!

On another note, check out my sewing blog to see what i did over the weekend...It freakin rocks!!!

I know, I know...

ok, so i am well aware that is has been over year since my last post, but lets be honest, I think 3 people actually read it, or did read it. I promise I will catch up, we have had one hell of a year, to say it nicely...but here is to 2011! If we made it thru last year we can make it thru just about anything. No we did not have marriage issues, we just had a lot of crap stuff happened mixed in with some fun stuff. I created another blog to follow me on a new "adventure" and I just wanted to let you all know! So check it out and tell me what you think....www.thesewingnerd.blogspot.com

Catch up from Oct...because all my pictures are still on my camera

So this is what we have been up to since October.....i know, i already know that i am the worst blogger ever, and so do my 2 faithful followers!!!!

i love this pic because Laker really wants to be just like his dad...undees and all!

Laker and Ocean hanging out
Picking out our pumpkins which we never got around to carving...i know parents of the year!!!

Steve and i went as Popeye and Olive Oyl to our neighborhood party, and Laker was a dragon while Oaks was a unicorn!

At the friend halloween party Steve and i went as "Octo-mom" and paparazzi.... as you can see thekids were not the only ones having fun!

So back in november one of steve's workers had his son with him doing some work, and i thought...hey just leave him here with Laker and i and they can just play while you work. Great idea right...did i mention i don't speak a lick of spanish and he speaks ZERO english. No big deal, he and laker seemed to be ale to communicate, but what happens when you get 2 kids that think they can talk to each other....well look for your self. this happened in a matter of 15 minutes!!!!

So i promise to get my camera cleared off so i can be "current" on our life.......

Oh Sweet Sadie

So some how, i think by miracle, the crabby apple (my little company) got into the Oh Sweet Sadie show out at soda row in daybreak this week. it starts wednesday and runs through sat! how awesome!!!! granted we literally have had 1.5 days to pull everything together. I sent the owners of the show an email saturday night seeing if they had any openings, figuring NOT because the show was the next week. i really was just trying to make contact to see how we could be vendors in the upcoming spring shows and to my surprise we got in. Some come check us out or simply come by and say hi!!!!!

The drama continues......

for those of you who read my post below, here is his response:

"Walmart carries several very nice Brother machines that are more in the price range you are looking for. Those are brand new also, not used, with a warranty too. Best of luck."

My response: (which, now that i think about it i should have just left it at his response, but still, what a jerk!!!!)

"no, good luck to you. I actually don't mind paying $500 for it, but you have to expect people to low ball you when you place things for sale on KSL. But the way you handled it was rude, so I am gonna take my cash and drop it in a store that sells your same used machine that has been serviced by professionals and know that I will be treated with respect. "

his response:

"I wouldn't have sold my Bernina sewing machine to you no matter what price you offered. You low balled too low and got treated like the cheapskate that you are. You just got a little taste of what you deserve and evidently didn't like it. Oh well, the truth hurts sometimes. Just admit that you're going to buy the SewPro for $40 from Walmart this weekend and sew away to your little heart's content making costumes for your pet dog or whatever silly crap that you have in mind to sew. "

(Ouch by the way!!!!! Do you think this guy is just mad at life or what????)

my final response:

"Thanks for the insight, i just hope you don't treat everyone that makes you an offer you don't like this way. Its just a price game, one you did not want to play, which is fine, but not everyone has thick skin. Good luck and its been interesting chatting with you."

his final response....

"I'm sure that you have very thick skin based on the limited correspondence that we've had. How thick is a hippo's skin btw? Your e-mail has been added to my spam blocker list. Good luck with your low ballin'."

Man i am gonna miss this guy! if anyone wants his email to pay their respects, let me know!!!!!
