Oh The Places You'll Go

Here is a list of places I want to go before I have kids...

Unfortunately, that's probably not realistic. So, I'll settle for before I die, instead.

In no specific order:

1. Cabo, San Lucas

2. Sandals, Jamaica
3. The Bahamas
4. Miami, FL
5. Cedar Point, Cincinatti, OH
6. New York City - I've been here before, but, I'd love to go again with the love of my life. ☺
7. Hawaii

Missing something? I really have no strong desire to venture far out of this country... like to Europe, Asia, Africa, etc. But, if I had the opportunity, I would totally take it.

I would also like to visit every state, that I haven't already. I would list them, but it's a lot. 30ish.

Random Crap

I had my review at work a couple days ago, and it went really well! I was feeling a little iffy about my position in the company, and I started to feel like I wasn't really worth anything, and talking to Dana made me feel a little more valuable. We came up with some goals for me, so I now have a renewed drive and determination to accomplish those goals. I finally got some PTO...I'm pretty excited about that. I'm not going to pretend that everything is perfect though. Our economy is struggling, and we are all feeling it. My company isn't getting as much work as it's used to, so we're on a pay freeze. I hope the country can get out of this slump soon, but I'm sure it will get worse before it gets better.

Lance's work came up with a plan to shut down the entire company, two days a month. Lance can either not get paid for those days, or use vacation. The problem with using vacation is that Lance only accrews 6 hours of PTO per month, and he would be using 16. So he would be losing 10 hours of PTO each month. So, we are just going to take them without pay for now, and see how we do. We are just a couple hundred dollars from finally having the Hyundai paid off, and that will help out a lot.

On the brighter side, it's Strawberry Days this week! I love Strawberry Days! It's also my friend/co-worker's bachelorette party, on Friday. We are gong to Los Hermanos, and then to a club to dance it up. It will be a blast! The parade is on Saturday, and so is my nephew's birthday party. Connor is such a cutie! I can't believe he'll be 7! I remember when Lance and I just started liking eachother, Lance took me to the hospital to meet his sister, Laura, and new born baby, Connor. So Connor's age is the same as how long Lance and I have been together. It's kinda cool... at least I think so.

Father's Day is Sunday! I love my dad very much, and hope he has a great Father's Day.

One last thought... since it's technically not SUMMER until next week, stop complaining about the rain! It's supposed to rain in spring! Ok that's all. :)

Make It Cool

I had a thought the other day, that I'd like to share. I realized that I live my life craving approval from others. It's really only about certain things, but I had to ask myself why?!. For example, if I was driving down the road with my windows down and a really good 80's song came on I would turn it up really loud then be embarassed if anybody heard me listening to 80's, so I'd roll up my windows. That's absolutely retarded! Why should I care what anybody thinks? If I like 80's, I like 80's. So I came up with a motto I'm going to attempt for the next little bit.

Don't wait until someone says it's cool, make it cool.

You could really fill in the lines with many positive words. Like cute. Don't wait until someone says it's cute, make it cute. Basically, the only purpose is to get me to stop worrying about what others think, and just be myself. So, self, here I come!

First order of business, blast Britney Spears as I drive down the road. Booyah!

This Week

I've been posting a lot lately, I know. So I think I'm going to post more often, and my posts will be shorter.... I hope.

I went to Lagoon yesterday with my hubby. We used to go every year, but we never went last year, so we were pretty excited to go. Wicked (their new ride from two years ago) was shut down... which stinks. I've only been on it once, and it was pretty sweet so I was looking forward to riding it again. We got to ride everything else that we wanted to ride, so it turned out ok. Cliff Hanger used to be my favorite ride, but yesterday when we went, they didn't flip us around as much as they used to. They're more focused on soaking everyone... so I was a little disappointed about that. But Samurai was finally working (it hasn't been running the past 3 times I've been to Lagoon!). I love that ride. I guess it has to be my new favorite! All in all it was a great day.

Lance and I have eaten some of our meals outside on our patio furniture this week. It has been such lovely weather! It's nice to go outside in our backyard and spend time together, with the puppy, and then shoot some hoops. It's going to be such a fabulous summer!

On Saturday I went over to Lance's aunt's house and had a "Girl's Night." It was awesome! His aunt made us the most delicious smoothies I've ever had in my life, and we watched Twilight. It was nice to hang out with them, I hope they do something like that again!

Speaking of Twilight! The New Moon trailer looks amazing! All the lighting looks like how I pictureDD the first one! I'm way excited! Only what.. 6 months to wait? Oi! I guess I could read the books again! :)

Happy June everyone!
