Happy St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day is always one of those fun little holidays that I have come to cherish over the years. Any excuse to celebrate or have a party is fine by me :-) My mom always makes a delicious Irish dinner that I look forward to and made St. Patrick's Day sugar cookies for dessert which are always a treat.

Black Jack

My first experience with gambling was on my senior trip; a cruise to Mexico. (the legal age to gamble on international water is eighteen) After the quarter machine ate five dollars I decided that the gambling thing was just not for me; although my friends seemed to take to it more than I did. However, for my grandma's birthday some of the family is heading to Wendover. So last week when my friends decided to play blackjack I thought I would give it another shot. After Ryan and I decided to go all in, we lost big time and had to eat 17 pieces of bubble gum each. Needless to say, I guess gambling is just not my thing. 

  This is just a few of the pieces of bubblegum that I had to eat. Oh and yes the big pink wad in my mouth is bubblegum.

President's Day

This year for President's Day we spent a fun filled evening with family. We went bowling and to dinner. Thanks Brian and Deanne! I am so glad that we have such a great family to spend time with! 

After all of the kids losing to Preston's parents in the first game, I came back and WON the second game! I am usually such an awful bowler. I was so proud of myself. I called my mom and she was just as surprised since I usually get gutter balls. She was even more shocked when I told her that I didn't even use the bumpers!
