Ranger Tour/Game

So for our anniversary I surprised Jeffrey with tickets to tour the Ballpark, great seats for the game & the promo for the post game was a Radney Foster concert.. right up our alley! Our anny was long over a month ago (June 4) so we had to wait forever!! ;)
We dropped the kids off at Nana & PaPa's house. Our first night 2 hrs away from Presley.
We didn't exactly tell Kinley where we were going.. I knew she would really want to go so we didn't tell her until afterwards. Hope to take her again before the season ends!
Our tour started at 2pm. It's a good thing we got there when we did bc our 90 yr. old (no lie) guide started at 1:45!
First stop: The Press Box. Talk about an amazing view. I know it's on TV every night.. but that (along with these pictures) really does it zero justice! It was just breath taking!

You can see the tour guide in this shot.. not kidding when I said 90. She knew her stuff tho! Poor thing was sweating so bad in her turtle neck, long sleeve button up & pants!
We stopped at a couple of the suites. .
"She has an eye like DiMaggio!"
This was in the tunnel area where the guys head to the dugout. My man.. Juan Gonzalez (and Pudge of course) was on many o plaques!
The lucky horseshoe. All the players touch it for good luck before every game. We didn't have as much luck. Maybe it's because I touched it?? Ooops
We made it to the dugout! I was like a kid in a candy store! Yes, I realize I am almost 30 years old!
Our guide said they do not allow tours to go back in the locker room anymore :( We were all disappointed but I was just happy we got to go to the dugout.
Media room
Mascot was hungry.. what's going on in the background?! ;)
Go Rangers!
My mom sent me pics of the girls while we were gone. Miss Priss enjoyed her time swimming.. and having banana splits!

Ok my bachelorette buds, who do you think has the proposal squared away?

Cute, skateboarding, crazy hair Jef?
Or sly, weird dutch-speaking family, indy car driver Arie?
I really liked Sean..a lot! But sadly he just had his looks going for him. I couldn't take any more of this eye squinting.. maybe it was a nervous twitch?
But on top of the eye twitch- I seriously don't think I could date/marry someone who was (or seemed to be anyway) a terrible kisser! Ew.....
Sooo... who is my pick!?
Jef of course :)

Can't wait for Sunday's finale!!!!!!

5 months

Presley turned 5 months old on 7/12/12! It came up on us so fast~we didn't even take her 4 month pictures lol! Just how it goes with baby #2! She was 13lbs. 3 oz. at her 4 month appointment so I'm assuming she's between 13.5-14lbs now. She is eating her rice cereal for dinner & loves it :) And she's eating 4.5oz. (just started 5oz. today) every 3-4 hrs.
In size 3-6 month clothes.. SOME 6 month onesies fit her.
She is my happy little baby!!

She is also starting to sit up on her own. She will sit for a few seconds on her own but she's getting the feel of her weight. She hates to lay down so I think she will conquer this very soon!
(She was watching TV in this pic!)

I seriously just want to bottle her up right now & never let her get any older!!

Cruisin Mama

We booked another Carnival cruise for next April..I think I am turning into my mother!
This time it's just me & Jeffrey alone for 5 whole nights on the Carnival Triumph.
We can't WAIT to take Kinley on the Magic but don't want to spend that kind of money until I know she is old enough to really enjoy naps, no tantrums (oh yes) & could do some excursions with us. So hopefully when she's 6 we can get her hooked too!
We'll be sailing to Progresso & Cozumel. We were both worried about going to Mexico but we found this excursion that takes you from the dock to a private island called Passion Island. I don't think any drug cartel will be waiting for us on Passion Island....? :) Anyway we are not ready to wait 9 months but hey, gives me enough time to try to lose some of this much unwanted weight!

I am saying many prayers today asking the man upstairs to keep our friend safe. Please do the same!
Alex is being deployed today for about a year. I am thankful for technology these days as we should be able to Skype with him every now & then!
Thank you Alex for all that you do for us! Semper Fi!

SUYL~Bathroom edition

Another SUYL post from Kelly's Korner. This week is the Bathroom edition!

This is our master bathroom..
I'm sorry- I don't know why I can't center this picture!?
 I finally got window treatments done in the house! I wanted them in our first house & never had them done.. 2nd house never had them done. . so finally now that we are in our "forever home" I had to have them :)
I just need to pick up some tealights for my candle holder & decorate the tub area & our bathroom is finished!
Closer look at the pic, I love the swirly frame!
(Another cell phone pic)
Looking into my closet. I had the drawers made when we were building the house. I was so tired of sharing the dresser with the hubs so this was a must!
The girls bathroom~I love how bright & funky it is!
And this is the upstairs 1/2 bathroom :)

Thanks for stopping by~hope you enjoyed our bathroom tour!
