Valentines Day Weekend

Valentines weekend was a lot of fun this year. We didn't do anything huge, but we got to spend time with each other and both sets of parents.

We decided to go out to eat Friday, instead of Saturday like we originally planned. We were both craving sushi, so we ended up going to Simple Sushi. It was SO SO SO good! They have some of the best sushi I have every had. I would definitely recommend it to you!

Saturday I had to work, so we didn't spend much time together. That night though we did have my parents over for a late dinner and that was a lot of fun. It was nice to be able to spend time with them, something we don't do very often.

On Sunday we went to Shaun's parents house for dinner. The food was yummy, like always. We also got treatments, which always makes us feel better. Body work is awesome!

For V-Day I received an awesome CD from Shaun:


I totally love it! I have listened to it every day. If you haven't listened to Ingrid Michaelson before I would definitely recommend that you check her out. I have two of her albums and I love both of them.

Shaun received the latest Weezer's album from me.


I have listened to a few songs off of the album and I like it.

Anyhow... V-Day was great! Nothing big, but I am okay with that. What is important is that I have a great husband and family to share it with.

Super Bowl XLIV

This year Shaun and I were invited by my friend Megan to attend a Super Bowl party at her parents house. Neither one of us are huge sports fans (I will admit that I do like sports more than Shaun does), but we thought it would be fun and it would give us a chance to spend time with our friends. And it was actually really fun. Shaun thinks that this was actually the first Super Bowl that he has watch.

The many thing that I was looked forward to were the commercials. Usually Super Bowl commercials are really funny. Not so much this year.  There were are few Doritos commercials that we thought were pretty funny. They won in my book for the best commercials this years. Here are a few we liked:








You can see all of the Doritos commercials here.  There are some pretty funny commercials.

Another fun things about the party is we guessed who would win the game and what the final score would be. My guess was 33-21 Colts and Shaun did the opposite (21-33 Saints). Well in the end Shaun won. He had the closest score. Towards the end of the game it was said that whoever won gets to hold the party next year. So I guess we will be holding a party at our house next year.

18 Months!

Shaun and I have been married 18 months now (as of Tuesday)!! I can't believe how quickly time has gone by. It is fun to see where we started and where we are now. We are starting a new chapter in our lives and I can't wait to see where it takes us. I know it will be an emotional roller coaster, but I am completely on board.

Thank you babe for a great 18 months of marriage! You are the best. I am so glad that it is you that I get to spend my life with. I couldn't ask for anyone better!

Car Accident

Monday of the week I was heading from my parents house to Winder Farm to pick up some milk and then it my grandpa's house to do taxes. I hadn't been on the road very long when a guy decided to pull out in front of me and I hit the side of his car. I am pretty sure the his car it totaled. From an estimate I have received from a body shop, they are saying I have about $2100, but we can't get the hood opened so there might be more damage under that hood.

State Farm is the insurance company that the other drive has. They have been really good to work with. Someone contacted me Monday evening to get my statement as to what happened and within the hour they had called back to tell me that they were accepting liability for the accident and to let them know where I wanted to take the 4 Runner. Tuesday I called in sick and ended up at Instacare to get my shoulder looked it. They are thinking that I have jammed my rotator cuff. So he told me that if it isn't feeling better in a week to go see an orthopedic specialist... Fun for me... Tuesday I also went to an auto body shop that Shaun's cousin recommended and got an estimate from him. I talked to Shaun and he felt good about going with them so I called State Farm back. They finally got back to me yesterday and a claim adjuster came out this morning to look at things. I will hopefully be able to take my vehicle in by Monday to have it repaired!
 
Here are some pictures...

I am pretty sure his car is totaled... 

Hopefully everything will get taken care of quickly and I can have my 4 Runner back. It is going to be weird driving a rental car...
