Valentines Day

I know its been a while since i posted. There has just been a lot going on. Mike got home safe and sound which is always great but also means my schedule gets busier. Last weekend was the start of Girl Scout cookie time for my mariner troop. I am the cookie organizer for our troop so I convinced Mike to come and help me pick up our 988 boxes of cookies and organize them for the girls to take home.

After we got the cookies organized we left the scout meeting and headed out for our valentines day trip. We started in Morro Bay at my friend's parents cabin for the first night. Sunday we headed down to Orange County to meet up with our friends Stephanie and Zane and stayed at their apartment for the night. Monday all 4 of us headed out to Las Vegas and spent Monday and Tuesday nights there. It was so much fun. we saw the Beatles Love show which i would recommend to anyone able to go see it. We also saw Peepshow which was very good as well. The rest of the time we just walked around the different hotels and did a little gambling. Mike won about $25 at blackjack. We headed back to Orange County for Wednesday night and back to morro bay Thursday and home Friday afternoon.

The Front of the Excalibur

Mike planned most of the trip which was very nice. He and Zane talked and planned a bunch of stuff together. We stayed at the Excalibur in Vegas, which for one of the cheapest big hotels on the strip I was surprised at how nice it was. When we got back to Orange County I decided I wanted to get a tattoo. I had been thinking about it for a while and decided that since steph had a few she would be a good person to go with. So I DID IT!!
It's a little hard to see but the flower is a Stargazer Lily and it represents me and mike. These are the flowers that we had at our wedding. On the petal there is a little ladybug which represents Zoey. This was my first tattoo, i have always wanted one but finally i had a design and reason that i know i will never regret.
