Cell Phone Dump

I know it has been a while since I've had a real post. I honestly don't have any free time anymore, you will read why towards the end of this post. I decided it was time to go through my cell phone pictures and document everything. This will somewhat update you with our lives.

Rocket is still a little terror. We are hoping that since she'll be turning 1 next month that she will no longer act like a puppy. (I know, high hopes). Last fall, I was watering some potted plants in our backyard. We have an ant infestation in our dirt so the ants came out of the plants with the extra water. Rocket decided to drink the water and got a ton of ant bites on her mouth. It's kind of hard to tell from this picture, but her mouth is swollen.
Rocket got spayed and had to wear a cone. At first she didn't like it and then she realized she could be even more of a bulldozer with it and cried whenever we took it off of her. Seriously, I have never heard of a dog enjoy a cone.

For the halloween party at our church, I had a photo booth. It was a floating head theme. Everyone seemed to love it! (I'm sorry I may have already posted about this, but I don't have the time to go back and check.)
As I've mentioned in a previous post, we went to Hawaii again last november. Once again, we hiked up Diamond Head. Here is my lovely husband hanging off the edge.
We had a "ghetto" christmas this year. We were in Hawaii during thanksgiving time and then packed up to spend christmas with my family so I was in vacation mode. I usually love decorating for the holidays, but I was too busy mopping about not being on the beach anymore. Plus, have I mentioned that Rocket is a terror? We bought a tiny 4 foot christmas tree and decorated it with only beach themed ornaments. I LOVED it!
I hope I'm allowed to post this following picture. I went and visited James at his office. I don't get to do this too often, but enjoy it when I do. I had no idea he had a picture of us in his office along with a studly picture of himself.
For christmas, my parents bought me these awesome shelf organizers. I have been obsessed with organization and felt I'd never get our pantry under control. These have been amazing. I can actually buy more of each item!

For James' mom's birthday in january, the whole family went to a Bakersfield Condor's game. It was a blast! 
Little Rhyen loves Uncle Jim!
I have been talking about taking off the shower doors for a while and finally did. I was intimidated by it, but once I started I was so surprised how easy it was. I even went a head and did the master bathroom shower doors too.
We put this fun shower curtain up. We have another designer one in front of it, but I'm not sure that it's the right one for our bathroom so I haven't taken a picture of it yet.
Our poor sweet neighbors woke up to 2 vehicles with no tires. You might have to enlarge this to see both of their cars propped up on blocks.
I'm not sure when (maybe around valentine's day) we went to a dance in Bakersfield with James' family. It was fun to spend time with everyone.
A couple months ago, James got to go into a 100+ year old bank that has been condemned for 20 years. I wish I could find the picture of the bank vault, but this is all you get.
I was so worried about him entering a building that no one has been in for 20 years, but he assured me they were very safe and wore hard hats.
I took James on a hot date for Valentine's day. This picture is horrible, but it's WWE wrestling. Just up his alley!
James is playing on a league again with other people from his company. He decided to call up his old buddy from Bakersfield to join the team. These 2 played a lot of ball together the 4 years we lived in Bakersfield. It was so nice to see them together again. It's amazing how well they play together still after 6 years.
Our little niece had a slumber party at our house for a weekend a couple months ago. She was obsessed with Rockets cage.
Rocket is a cuddler. If no one's around to love her, she'll curl up with whatever she can find.
For James' birthday this year, I was a good wife and took him out on a date. Sadly, this date was to the allergist. Before you get worried, I got his permission to post this picture of him, but he suggested I keep the picture of my back off. We both got tested to see what we were allergic to. As you can see from James' back, he's highly allergic to everything. My back looked very similar.
Just like James, Rocket enjoys a box of sprees. Unlike James, Rocket just likes to cuddle the box. Although, I'm not sure if there were any in the box before she cuddled with it.
Unfortunately, due to our hot date night at the allergist, James' birthday wasn't all that great. So I a few days later, I surprised him with a birthday re-do.
I turned the big 3-0 last month. Surprisingly I survived and don't feel any different. My thoughtful parents sent me this flower arrangement complete with black roses.
And the reason I suddenly don't have free time.... I'm back in school. I started April 9th and have 2 years and 5 months left before I get my bachelor's degree in computer science. We have a beautiful desk in our office, but I have decided to make permanent residence at the kitchen table instead. I currently have online classes and am required to spend a minimum of 4 1/2 hours a day doing school work.

Lots going on! I like how the bathroom looks without the doors. We pulled the shower doors off too when we moved in our house. Makes it feel so much more open. :) And I love your pantry organization. The dog food buckets are awesome.

Congrats on going back to school and good luck with your classes.

We watch the Alaska Aces up here and I always think of you when they play Bakersfield; mainly because if it wasn't for you, I'd have no idea where Bakersfield is.
