Playing Catch Up...

I realize it's been far too long since I last updated my blog. I guess Ive felt like there hasnt been much to blog about lately. However, after going through my pictures from this summer (since that's the last time I updated!) I found I have been a pretty busy gal! It's been fun to look back and recap on all the great memories Ive made the last few months. I really cant believe 2010 is coming to a close in a couple weeks! So kick back and grab some snacks cuz Im warning you, this might take a while....

There was the trip to Hermosa Beach, CA...

a beautiful backyard sunset...

many many lake trips...

of course some themed pool parties...

several happy hours...

a couple birthday celebrations...

A spooky Halloween party...

And priceless memories made with my family...

(oh, and that time I dyed my hair dark!)

*I guess this post kinda serves as a reminder to take time and enjoy those special moments with friends and loved ones..because clearly, time moves fast and we dont always get time to soak it all in!

Kick off to summer...Vegas style!

Memorial Weekend---->>> Vegas!The Palms Pool Party on Sunday!
Our awesome view at The Palms!
Lisa and I at the top of the Palms @ GhostbarCrystal, Lisa and I- Don't let the picture deceive you...I'm really that tall, and she's really that tiny!
Something must have been really funny! Actually the whole weekend was a big laugh!
Me, Crystal, Lisa and Kathie! I had so much fun with these ladies! Even though it was a quick trip, it was so worth it! I cant wait to see what the rest of summer has in store!

Happy Easter

On Sat we enjoyed a BBQ at Trisha and Jesse's and did some early Easter egg hunting with Brock...about 5 times! He didn't want the fun to end! Then on Sun we had an Easter brunch at Moms! The weather was perfect and we all had a wonderful weekend!Brock and I sporting our new shades!
The "kid table"...Brock and Uncle TJ playing with new Easter goodies...

Hope everyone had a happy and blessed Easter!

All grown up...

March 2nd my baby bro Cameron turned 18! I can't believe it, it seems like yesterday that my sis and I were painting his nails and putting bows in his hair! (cuz that's what big sisters do.) Good thing my mom has a grandson because all of her kids are grown adults now!

This is my favorite picture of baby Cam! I wanted to dress him in this onesie everyday! It was my favorite! He was probably the cutest of us all! ( P.S. notice the air Jordan's! haha..too cute. I think we still have them saved somewhere!)

Brock had to help Uncle Cameron open his presents!

Happy 18th Birthday Uncle Cameron!!
This is about the 4th time he blew out those candles! lol No one minds a little drool on their cake.. right?
Brock decorated and did the candles for Uncle Cameron all by himself!

Wait, who's birthday was it again...? I'm pretty sure Brock thinks his birthday comes once a month now!

Happy 18th Birthday Cameron! I love you!

WM Phx Open..

This past weekend I joined Megan and Nick at the "Waste Management Phoenix Open". Horrible name if you ask me. Or perfect I guess due to the rowdy crowd that Phoenix draws...I wondered, do all PGA tournaments involve dressing up like John Daley, excessive drinking and foam fingers??? I think not, but that's Arizona for you...any excuse to dress up and party will draw a huge crowd! lol
Anyways, we had a great time and the weather couldn't have been better! (Seeing as on Sunday it poured all day long!)
Nick in his "twister" pants. I think he was the highlight of the tournament! Fooooorrre!
P.S. These pants are actually real golf attire...if you'd like a pair, I know you do, check out! You cant tell from the pic, but the shirt matches! Perfect.

A Vegas Birthday Getaway..

At the end of January a group of us jetted off to Las Vegas for my friend Chase's birthday! We all stayed at the MGM and enjoyed a couple nights out on the town! It was an awesome group of friends and we had a blast! Don't worry, there were no quickie weddings, stealing of tigers, or missing teeth involved! Phew! ("Hangover" reference. If you haven't seen it, do it!)
All the ladies with the birthday boy!
Vanessa, Adriane, Me and Alisha
Enjoying dinner at the Grand Lux

The whole gang headed to Tao!

Let it Snow..

With all of this 70 degree weather around here, my friends and I decided to take off up north for a snowboarding trip last weekend! Let me tell you, its been about 2 years since my last snowboarding attempt so I was pretty nervous! Not quite like riding a bike, but after a few hard falls I decided it was easier to just try to stay upright!
Our beautiful cabin we rented!
The gang getting ready to head to the mountain!

The girls!

Alisha decided to keep cozy in the lodge for the day!

Me, Chase, Jennifer and Rory

I'm sure 2 seconds before this picture was taken I was actually sprawled out on my stomach!
Making our way to the top!

What a gentleman he is!

Even though my knees are a nice shade of purple and blue, I had an amazing time! It was nice to escape the "heat" and see some snow! We are hopefully planning another trip for Feb...which is good cuz it might just take me that long to recover!
