Life Lately - April 2016

Oh life, how busy are thee.

This will serve as a bit of an update as it's been several months since any sort of a Life Lately post!!
On April 2nd Wayne hosted and we walked the Pancreatic 5k. One of our dear friends, Adam's Dad, was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer a few years back and passed away just last year in 2015 and since then it's always been a cause close to our heart. So we walked in memory of Dave.
It was also Green Gramma's Birthday, so that evening we took her out for a nice dinner.
Steak and Lobster anyone?
On the 6th, Hailey had her Spring Concert at pre-school.
On my birthday, (April 9th), A Thousand Horses was doing an acoustic performance and Meet N Greet with 95.5 The Bull and a few of it's listeners. So I took Hailey, Grams and Griff and we went and met them. One of the band members was extremely sick that day, so we are missing one and they ended up not performing, but they did do a Q&A with us and took pictures. They are such nice guys.
And then that evening we took Hailey (and our friend Derek who was in town visiting from LA) and saw Ellie Goulding at Mandalay Bay. We have met Ellie in the past and she is always so nice. She is also SO talented.
I also got some cool swag for my birthday. Of course I love ANYTHING The Walking Dead and new pajama pants. Woohoo!
On the 10th we went to Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden at The Mirage. This place is so cool. It's like a mini zoo right in the middle of the strip. While it only has Dolphins and Tigers (and a cougar), it was very cool.
On the 23rd Wayne participated in the iHeartMedia 24/7 Comedy Fest.
It was a big name comedy show with Frank Caliendo, Billy Gardell and more.
Wayne on stage making people laugh.
April was the month that Griffin graduated from an infant seat to a convertible car seat.
Auntie Amie also came at the end of April to help with the kids, so Wayne and I could go on our first real vacation together to Jamiaca. More on that one later.
And there's April for ya.
Thanks for reading!!

Friday Favorites {9.9.2016)

So it's been awhile!! Happy Friday friends!!! Here are just a few things that I am loving this week and looking forward to!!

Loving this new music from Lady Gaga!!

I also love Ariana Grande's new single.

This right here. She loves her Daddy so much and it just warms my heart.

We went to Adventuredome in Circus Circus this past weekend for the first time. It's comparable to Nickelodeon Universe in Mall of America where they have adult/kid rides and of course food and snacks. Hailey has become a little more brave with rides and she had so much fun. I can't wait until Griffin is a little older to see all the fun they have together.

I'm so excited for fall TV to return. While there are a few shows over the summer that I LOVE, there is nothing quite like FALL TV!!! AND...Nashville is coming back! #Nashies

I know she is a Disney star, but I LOVE Ariana Grande. I also love Jimmy Fallon., so this is a perfect video. I am not going to admit how many times I watched this. LOL.

I want this bomber jacket oh so bad in PLUM! I don't really have a fall/winter jacket for here in Vegas, so maybe that will be my excuse!! Haha. My WANT list is growing though...does anyone know where a money tree is?

We were supposed to go to San Diego for my summer work party, but decided at the last minute not to go. So instead, we will be at home this weekend and watching UFC 203. So excited!!!

Oh yea, football is back baby!!! We bleed purple in our house.

August was a rough month for us in many ways, so I am welcoming September with open arms. Also, it's the start of cooler temps here in Vegas, which is also a plus!

I am looking forward to a few festivals at the end of the month. I'm hoping my friend Katie can come out for the 3 day fest that is Route 91. We were supposed to go last year, but that didn't happen. I'm so excited!!! I think a pair of cowboy boots are in my future!!!

Hope everyone is well and I hope to update soon! Have a great weekend!

Tuesday Tunes {Six Fourteen Sixteen}

Happy Tuesday!

Here is my tune of the week:

It's from Dan + Shay's new album Obsessed, which I LOVE!! It's called "From The Ground Up."

And here's another one because they are just THAT good.

This one is "Obsessed."

Hope everyone has a great week. We are moving at the end of the week/this weekend, we are still in daycare limbo and my sister comes late Friday night!! Woohoo!!!

Gastric Sleeve Surgery Day {Ten Seven Fifteen}

Back on October 7, 2015, Wayne's life changed forever. Really, all of our lives have changed since that day. There's been a lot of ups and downs since that day and it hasn't been easy; and even though he has been criticized for taking the "easy" way out and opting for surgery, he has also helped and been an inspiration to a lot of people as well.

And to all those judgmental jerks?

Shut up.
We don't care.

It saved his life.
Plain and simple.

It has not only helped him become more healthy, but also given him so much more confidence in his everyday life. It has also given our family a new outlook.

So here is some pictures from surgery day and I plan on blogging his progress since then, too.

I hope you enjoy!

Thank you Dr. Tom and Blossom Bariatrics. From the bottom of my Wifey heart.

What's Up Wednesday {Five Twenty-Five Sixteen}

Happy Hump Day Friends!!

1. What we're eating this week...

I made spaghetti this week which is always delicious and a staple in our house.

I also found these split boneless chicken breasts with provolone and asparagus inside. I paired those with corn on the cob. Such a yummy and quick dinner, which is exactly what we need.

I am also planning on making these this week:

2. What I'm reminiscing about...

Our time in Jamaica...

My sister visiting and staying with our kids while we were in was so nice to have her around. I miss my family so much.

3. What I'm loving...

My Influenster Vox Box


4. What we've been up to...

Packing. We're moving in less than a month, so we are in pack mode.

5. What I'm dreading...

Moving. I like going through stuff, purging, packing and even unpacking and putting stuff in it's place. I just don't like the actual act of moving.

6. What I'm working on...

Packing. This is my life right now.

7. What I'm excited about...

Getting into this new house and my sister, Kate, coming to visit mid-June, my parents coming to visit at the end of June, Hailey's 5th birthday next month. All fun stuff ahead.

8. What I'm watching/reading...

I've recently started the Real World: Go Big or Go Home. They lived in Downtown Las Vegas, so I'm excited to see what landmarks or hotels they put on the show. It's probably going to take me awhile to get through this season, but we will see. I also want to watch the new season of The Challenge that started at the beginning of May. 

9. What I'm listening to...

10. What I'm wearing...

I haven't really gotten anything new lately. So it's been the same old things. Ive been wanting to get a pair of the LulaRoe leggings, but have been dragging my feet. I've joined a few FB sites and still don't know how it all works.

11. What I'm doing this weekend...

My Hubby's friend, Adam, is coming into town this weekend, so while they do boy stuff, I will be doing what else...packing.

12. What I'm looking forward to next month...

See #7.

13. What else is new...

We went to the Billboard Music Awards this past weekend. It was fun!

The only other big thing that is going on in our lives is that Green Gramma moved back down to Arizona to live with her sister. So we no longer have her with us. The last year she has been with us she has been such a big help with the kids and around the house.

We are in between daycare situations for Griffin until my sister comes down June 17th. She will be able to watch Griffin after that point until he starts daycare in July. Until then we are having one of our friends down here help.

I can't believe May is almost over. Hope your week is going well.
