I was attacked by a mariachi band!

I was attacked by a mariachi band!

Josh and I went to Mi Piquena Hacienda, I was having a bad day and had a few margaritas.....our waiter didnt speak English very well, and of course Josh doesn't speak Spanish...the waiter asked Josh a question, but Josh wasn't sure what the guy said so he just smiled and nodded (NOT a good idea). The next thing I know here comes the mariachi band, and our waiter. The waiter hands me a shot of tequila, puts a red sombrero on my head, and hands me a ukulele type instrument. They band proceeds to sing Feliz cumpleaƱos to me and the waiter takes my picture, all the while I am laughing so hard I can not open my eyes and kept repeating..."but it's not my's not my birthday" . I guess they understand English about as well as Josh understands Spanish because they just smiled and nodded and handed me the polaroid. I did however...get a free shot out of it!

Do you know anyone that may want 2 kittens? Angela found 2 kittens barely old enough to be away from the mother on a busy street in Lawrenceburg, she has had them for a few weeks, but she already has 2 adult cats and they just had 4 kittens. These two are litter box trained, and they would like for them to stay together if possible.

Just the begining

Josh and I are in the process of buying our first home, and I have been told that a lot of work goes into being a homeowner but it wasn't until Sunday that I truly understood what this meant. We are purchasing our house from a friend who moved to Germany, so the house has been vacant since January. Needless to say, some interesting things go on when a house goes unoccupied for 7 months.

Sunday morning we worke up early(for a Sunday anyway) and went to "the new house" to mow and clean up the yard. I mowed for 5 HOURS!!!! I had to make 2 trips with the riding lawn mower and then another with the push mower to get to the places the riding mower couldnt reach. While mowing I found a bowling ball, several other balls (baseball, basketball, kick ball, etc. ), a hatchet, an axe, a kickstand for a bike, clothes hangers, Ale-8 bottles, and the list goes on.

Josh removed an old storage shed from the yard, and that took all day as well. It was pretty entertaining to watch him try to break this building down. He started out with a crow bar and hammer to remove the door and windows, then ripped the siding off. He figured he could just rip the rest of the building apart with the hammer and crow bar as well. WRONG! Next he tried to flip the building on it side using leverage so he could remove the roof, that didnt work either. The buidling was tilited half on the ground, half off, but refused to topple over. Then he got a wench and tried to use that in combination with the leverage. That didnt work either. Finally he took it down wall by wall with a sledge hammer. I wish I had pictures to go along with this post!

After 9 hours of work, we still needed to trim the trees, remove the weeds and old fencing from around the house, clean out the flower beds, and remove 2 swing sets from the backyard. Josh went back on Tuesday and finished up most of the work. We are meeting with a contractor sometime soon to talk about the repairs inside the house. Hopefully in 30-45 days we will be in a nice new house. Pictures in the near future.....I promise!

I love Makeup!

I love makeup! Everyone who knows me well knows that, and my friends Sarah recommended this website and I LOVE IT! The tutorials sections is great, there are all kinds of "how to videos" for different looks. My favorite is the 60s Makeup for the Naughties Girl. Here is the link for the video on youtube.

I have a blog!

I just started my own blog because I am at home sick with strep throat and getting tired of watching 90210 reruns.

I want to use this space to document my experience at buying by first home, to showcase cool and interesting things I find on the Internet, to connect with my friends, and just to rant and rave about everyday occurrences.
