This is the way we roll...

Let me paint the whole picture for you. We are sitting in the living area of our loft, on a blow up mattress wedged in between the television and the couch eating thai food take out. Were so lazy, but we love it! Casey would keep this mattress here forever if he could. Its here from house guests we had over the weekend and will probably remain here for the rest of the week.

UPDATE: After 3 weeks the mattress was put away.

A little about the dogs... We have two chihuahuas- Moses and Sammy, Moses is a 1 and 1/2 year old dwarf chihuahua and Sammy is an older rescue chihuahua (we have no idea how old). They are polar opposites. Moses is hyper, mischievous, super loving- on his own time- a momma's boy and quite entertaining. Sammy is way mellow, very well behaved, he dances when he needs to go out to pee, and waits for permission to get on the bed and always loving.

This is a play by play of Moses going for my pad thai. He thinks he so sneaky...
He pretends not to notice... Now he's eyeing it... Then he's lays his head on my thigh dreaming about it.
Then as soon as I walk away he grabs a piece!
Meanwhile, this is what Sammy is doing...

Fun times with friends

These pictures are from Eric's birthday party. I credit Eric for my marriage. Ive been friends with Eric since... well I cant remember but years... and Casey and Eric have been friends for a long time as well. Eric was showing me pictures of a trip he took with Casey and the whole time I kept thinking- that guy is hot! So when I actually saw Casey at church I went up and introduced myself and the rest is his history.

We had a blast, sometimes you
can hang out with a group of people and everyone is one the same
humor wavelength- I love it. We laughed all night and cant wait to get together soon.

Family Home Evening

This is from FHE, we get together every Monday with Casey's family. On the far left is my niece Tessa- she was frowning but as soon as I put the camera on her she gave me this great smile. I love kids!

The other pictures are my two nieces Jade and Kaitlyn and my nephew Tyler. You cant really see from this picture but they wrote (or tried to write) Happy Poopy Day Casey. They spelled it "Happy Puppy Wei Kese."
I thought it was hilarious.. I I think that it'd do cool that at such a young age they know Casey would appreciate something like Happy Poopy Day.

This is my sister in law Nikki, me
and Jade's mom Christy and of course
the newest addition to the Treese Fam- Beautiful Lacy!

Birthday Dinner Pics

Dinner with the Fam!

I have the funniest husband. Every time we take a photo I know it's never going to turn out like I expect. We had the best time tonight, my sisters- Kaoni and Daedrie's birthdays are May 14 and 16th so we all went out with my family to celebrate. It was a great time. Oh in case youre wondering about the bra it was one of their presents. Hopefully the girls had fun- we did. There were a lot of laughs and reminiscing. Were so lucky to have such cool families.

Poor Casey works his butt off with school and work. So we really only have Sundays to spend quality time together. But last Wednesday he called me and told me to be ready in 30 minutes because we were going out. It was so exciting. It felt like the old days when I'd try to look as pretty as I could for him and get all excited to see where we were going. This is a picture of that night. It's funny because Casey took it when I was still trying to fix my hair (you know- trying to look best for the camera). It's a classic candid shot of me because my friends love to make fun of me for pushing up the sides of my hair but I never noticed I did it. Anyway it was a great night. Surprise dates are the best kind!
