So, Jamaica was pretty cool. We had perfect weather. The all-inclusive idea was new for us. So, the first night we got there we were totally confused. We got there kinda late and a lot of the restaurants were closing. The next day we got it down. The Dunn's Falls was amazing. I have never experienced anything like it. Most waterfalls I have seen have been in Hawaii or Colorado where they fall off a cliff. This one you get to walk up. To get there we took a catamaran. They played one of the dirtiest songs I have ever heard, but it was hilarious. I of course had to download it right when we got home. It is called The Big Bamboo. Warning: Don't listen if you get offended. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ogr4g-5FLiY One day we went on a shopping tour. It was kinda cool to see what the inner parts of the island looked like. We bought a wooden head and some Bob Marley shirts. Other than that we just hung out at the resort and ate nachos. Each day they do this pool entertainment and one day was a beer chugging contest. I have never seen a guy drink a beer that fast. Everyone there was extremely friendly. My review: Great place for outgoing people that like the party atmosphere. Not so great for people that like to explorer on their own and chill at night. End result: We had a nice time just going to stick to the rental properties.

My parents, Jen, Eric, Ash and I went to the Addison Fireworks Thursday. It was a lot of fun. I have seen their fireworks almost every year, but never in the actual circle. We stayed for the movie, but stupid drunk kids ruined it. Matt didn't go b/c he had a softball game.
Friday I pretty much just chilled at the house until the Rough Riders game. Matt had to work all day. They had everyone stand up that served. The guy in front of us stood up and we noticed his shirt said POW. We were like whoa!
Matt worked Saturday morning. So, I went shopping with my mom and Jen. We had a lot of fun looking at cute clothes and antiques. We ate at this horrible restaurant. My mom's fried chicken was raw. I did find 2 super cute outfits for Jamaica. I can't wait to wear them. Once Matt got home he finished the path. I love it! After that we went to dinner with his parents.
Sunday Matt didn't work! We taught our little 3 yr olds in the morning. After our ritual errands we went to my parents for some ribs and to hang out at the pool.
Sorry I have no pics I forgot my camera the whole weekend.

Other than that Matt is working on our backyard. He is putting a path in around the side yard. I can't wait until it is done b/c I'm going to put a flowerbed in next to it. I really want to put a small pool back there or at least a hot tub. The birds in our front tree left the nest. It was kinda cool watching them as they grew.

Right now we teach Sunday school for 3 year olds. It is the best thing ever. Really. It has been so cool watching them grow up. I highly recommend it. Other than that I don't really do much. Sure I have the cooking thing, but that has been off lately. I hate when I get in a cooking funk. So, it all comes down to I need a new hobby. I am in search of a new passion. Here is a list of potentials:
3. Taking photos
4. Reading Books
Anywho, we finally got the fire pit I have been eyeing. It is so amazing. We cracked it open with a night of s'mores. Yumm! I can't wait to do it again.

Things on my to do list today:
Matt's Softball Game
What would I do if I suddenly became a Billionaire:
Oh man. I would buy a vacation home in Savannah, Vail, Destin, and Paris. Ooo, I would open a cute store in each city for people on vacation. It would have cute shirts and local artist stuff. I would also have an amazing restaurant next to it where the profits go to Alzheimer's. The one in Savannah would have southern food maybe I can get Babe's Chicken to go in on this one, the one in Vail would have comfort foods like chili to keep people warm on the slopes, the one in Destin will be fish tacos and stuff like that, and the one in Paris would be French/American with mini food.
Three of my bad habits:
1. I go to bed way to early
2. I go ADD
3. I cut my dead ends at work
Five jobs I have had:
Sales @ Academy
Sales/Operator/Cashier @ Target
Intern @ eStar
Project Coordinator @ US-Analytics
Five things people don't know about me:
1. I have a super nose. I smell everything
2. I don't really like red meat
3. I haven't cut my hair in a year
4. I still watch the Disney channel
5. I love sitting on the porch

The next room was our bedroom. So, we had a queen, but I was dying to upgrade to a King. I love it. Not to soft, but not to hard. We also had to get the dresser, nightstand, and chairs to match. We didn't really have any decor for this room. So, I got to go pick out a lamp, candles, etc. I'm not sure where to put our quilt rack yet.
Our guestrooms are just about done as well. The "kid" one has my old twin with my college bedding and furniture with my dolls and posters. The other guestroom has our old bed. We did upgrade the queen and bought a headboard. So, all we have left is a nightstand.
For the front yard we put a few iron piece out there and added new mulch. Last weekend I had the pleasure of pulling a million weeds. Our neighbor did let us borrow this weed puller that is pretty cool.
Up next is our study and dinning room. Then maybe upgrade the kitchen to granite and stainless. After that the backyard. In the mean time we are working on a new tv for our room, a dyson, nightstand for the guest, a new grill, some work on the jeep. Boy it's going to take all year. I can't wait until it's over, but then what will we do? So, I think I gave up on the house warming party. Is it bad to do one a year late? I really wanted to have one. Oh well.
On other updates: Our neighbors are so nice. Granted they are all at least 6 years older with kids they are pretty cool. This month we have a elmo birthday party to go to, a neighborhood garage sale, a crawfish, and the list goes on. I think I might crack down and get a maid. Chores stink! I don't mind picking up after myself, but boy do I not like mopping, dusting. Plus it eats a whole day. Last night I tried my first King Ranch Chicken. I figured anything with the word Ranch must be good and it was. While there was no Ranch it did have Rotel. I'm going to put it in my next cookbook. (By the way sorry I think I gave up on my cooking blog and just stick to a cookbook a year). So, a few publishers have been calling my about publishing one. I'm not really sure if I'm that serious about it all. Maybe I'll finish this next one and see what yall think. Oooo, I'll add a voting thing on the left!

When we got back we had my fam come over for a New Years Day Dinner. We had Pecan Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Black Eyed Peas, and all kind of goodies. I am now all caught up in the chick flick world. I saw 27 Dresses, Fools Gold, and Definitely Maybe. They were all really cute. I think Fools Gold was my fav though. We are super excited it is time for another round of furniture. This time we bought our headboard and mattress for the master, the headboard for the guestroom, and the entry way bench. I can't wait to get everything in. I really think they are going to make a difference. Later this summer I think we are going to get the dinning and then this winter get the study stuff. I'm trying to talk Matt into some rocking chairs for out back or a firepit. I haven't gotten there yet, but maybe next year we can start on the outside. We still need to through a house warming party. Is there a statue of limitation? Maybe this summer after we get the dinning room we will through a bbq or something like that. Happy late Valentines eveyone!
