I went to my first Rodeo last night! A few towns away from where I live was the fair, and each day they have a event going on. Last night was the Rodeo! Both myself, Sebastian and my brother Paul ( he decided to stay another week after this, waaahoo!) headed over. It was so much fun! I got the full experience of a fair, lemonade shake up ( yes, my first one!) and singing the Star Spangled Banner, accompanied with a prayer from the announcer! We all had a good 2 hours of fun. I hope that they do it again next year!
Wild Cow Milking!
Wild Horse Bucking!
I think I have hay fever or something going on because, I am feeling terrible today! I hate being a debbie downer, but oh man, being sick really brings you to reality as making tea is a struggle! My throat is aching, my ears are hurting. I speculate hay fever, but WED MD says either ran ear infection or Thyroid cancer... The worst is that I have to go to work tomorrow and I hate being sick while working as I have to deal with very strange customers at the gas station. Please pray for my sanity tomorrow!
I currently have cinnamon raisin bread rising. When I say rising, I mean not rising. I shouldn't bake when I am feeling like poop. I hope that I added all the right ingredients, and that it comes out decent, if not I am sure that the chickens will eat it!
I think I mentioned that at the end of July my cousin Justina, who also is one of my bridesmaids is coming into town for 8 days! She lives 1,000 miles away and I see her, well never! I figured this would be a perfect time to gather round all of my bridesmaids and let them get to know one another. I am planning a day out for dress shopping etc. I want to make them each a little gift basket so show my appreciation that they are coming from all over the country for my special day... I found a great groupon coupon ( yes, say that three times fast, haha) for VISTA PRINT, and made them t-shirts! Yay! Here is what they look like...
Obviously my maid of honor t-shirt for you guessed it my maid off honor!
For the rest of my bridesmaids!
You guessed it , my shirt!
Speaking of Groupon. Do any of you guys use it? I just found it a few months ago and hot dog! I love it! For those who do not know what it is.. here is a run down. I will use my t-shirts above as an example. Groupon is a website where you can find amazing coupons. These can be for restaurants, things and places to do, bars, Vistaprint, doctor appointments, massages, anything you can think of. I saw a coupon for Vistaprint, an online printing store, the coupon was for 70 dollars off an order, to but this coupon you had to pay $17. This means that I bought the coupon for $17 and then was able to download it. When I went to Vistaprint to purchase the shirts, my total was about $73. The coupon takes off $70 dollars, leaving me to pay $3. So instead of paying $73 for the shirts above, I only really paid $20. I hope this makes sense? Sebastian and I use this site often to decide what where where we will go for date night, and plan a lot of our vacations! Some things are worth it, others are not.
I am falling asleep from the allergy medicine that I took and have been typing this blog entry for the last two hours... which means my bread has been rising for a little over that. Whoops. Time ta put it in the oven and go to sleeeep and rest up. Yes, I realize that it is only 6:24 pm.
I apologize for my loopiness today. it has been a long and tiring day. help.
