Beautiful California!

The past few weekends I've been able to finally get out and take some pics!  Here are a few...

Home Sweet Home

Again, very past due.  After spending a great weekend in Chicago, Rollie and I took the amtrak over to Michigan.  The ride was waaaayyy too long but it was less expensive than renting a car or flying.  Unfortnaltey the 7ish hour ride through Illinois and Michigan in the early springtime didn't prompt any thoughts of moving back to the midwest anytime soon.  A bit too dark, dreery, and brown for us :(  California sure has spoiled me.  I wish I could move my whole family out here!  Anyways, my Dad picked us up from the train station (where it was hailing and freezing in April mind you) and we headed to his house to relax and enjoy some primos pizza (a local pizza joint that has been around well before I was born and the same guys are still working amazingly good.  It is home).  Monday morning Rollie and I headed over to Somerset Mall, we met up with my mom, grabbed a bit to eat, walked and shopped.  The rest of the week we just relaxed and spent time with my family.  Here…

21 before 30???

Well the big 3-0 has come and gone and I think I didn't pretty darn well...not 100%  though.  Some tasks or goals were a bit hard to "cross-off" since they were things I want to continue.  There were only a few things that I just flat out didn't get to or lose 20 lbs!  I haven't gained anythough :)  Dentist, photo gallery, scrapbook, skiing, soupash and starwars were among the others.  All in all it turned out pretty good seeing as though I've been much busier at work, trying to find a house and just plain old busy with life.  Next up...hopefully a home improvement list as we should here about our offer next week. 

62. lose 20 lbs (yep just throw the hardest one out there first). trying really hard on this one since we got back from Chicago but giving it a few more days before stepping on the scale again.

63. Finish our stairway photo gallery this is on hold since we started looking for houses, still on hold since we are looking for houses and deci… month later

Well I'm EXTREMELY behind on posting.  I wasn't really sure where to start so I'll start with our last Chicago!  We arrived around noon and took the train right down to Shannon's work to drop off our luggage and venture around before she got off.  We walked about a half mile to Sears Tower ( Willis Tower)  The wait was about an hour but it really didn't seem like it...and we got to enjoy a quick little movie about the history.  They have a new lookout area...which was SUPER creepy
but we took some awesome pictures from it.
