Three Years Down...

It is hard to believe that it has been three years! This past year was a tough one, but we managed to make it thru all the tough times with laughter, joke cracking, and a little arguing. Thanks for taking care of me Ken and here's to at least three more! :)

Ladies that Slumber...

With Ken and Rob being out of town camping, Kya and I jumped at the chance to have a slumber part with our besties. We had pizza and wine and a lot of laughs. We we happy that Heather stopped by to see us as well.

Of course we drank too much wine and stayed up way too late, but that is what slumber parties are for right?

Aren't these three cute? You can tell by the picture below that Kya stayed up too late partying too. She spent all day Saturday sleeping.

A St. Louis Weekend...

We just returned from a weekend in St. Louis.  We always try to catch at least one Cardinal game at Busch Stadium each year.  We had a very full weekend full of family and friends.

Of course Kya went with us.  Doesn't she look abused?  This was after her four mile run before we left.

If you have made the trek from Kansas City to St. Louis, you have driven past the Bobber Cafe.  This is all that remains of her.  May she rest in peace.

Enjoying a latte.  Oh, and an eclair.  It was so good.  This was after my 12 mile run with my friend Laura, so the eclair was very much deserved.

She was just taking it all in, enjoying a beautiful Saturday.

Nothing beats a Saturday afternoon walk before a Cardinal game.  Chasing the geese made it that much better.

Ken and me at the game.  They lost and played horrible, but we still enjoy going.

We decided at the last minute to go to St. Louis and to go to the game, and we ended up with seats WAAAAYYY up at the top. As in, second row from the top.  I gave Ken a hard time about it the entire time.  Next time, we will plan ahead.  :)

Where was this photo taken? None other than Ozarkland!  You know, the only place where you can buy fudge, moccasins, dream catchers, taffy, walnut bowls, and many more fabulous items!

There are those moccasins I was talking about!

Ken found an Indian Jones whip.  He was snapping that thing like a pro.

Hands off ladies, he is mine.

Does anyone recognize this place?  This was our first time to stop at this truck stop and we were intrigued after seeing it on tv. 

I would say that between Ozarkland and the truck stop, we had just as much fun on the drive home.  A few things we learned:  Long John Silvers does not taste as good as it did when I was 16 and cruising around Joplin and Ken is not impressed that I can sing every song that comes on my iPod.  He has no idea how lucky he is.  :)

Here Kitty Kitty...

I stopped by Petco this morning to get Kya some snacks. When I walked in, I saw that it was kitty cat adoption day.

I LOVVVE kitties. I always stop and say hi and love on them. If I could have left with one, I would have. I sent Ken the picture below and he did confirm that if I came home with one, I too would be up for adoption. :)

In order to keep myself and my current two kitties off the streets, I left, kitty catless.

And so it Ends...

It is no secret that Easter candy is my favorite candy of all time. Candy shaped as eggs just tastes better, trust me.

Well, I am sad to report that I am on my last bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs and only have one Cadbury Cream Egg left. All good things must end, right?

February cannot get here fast enough.

I miss you already.
