Blog Catchup

Alright I have been a slacker so sorry to put this on all at once. These happenings are a little old, but better late than never right? There are more to come, I'm just workin on it little by little=)

Tornadoes??? What?

So two weeks ago we had the craziest weather. It would be beautiful in the morning and then at night it would get really stormy and these sirens would start going off which meant...tornadoes! I have never seen it rain so hard in my life. We got soaked running from our car to our apartment where we had to camp out in the basement for a little bit. We thought it was kind of lame staying in the basement, but then there was a spotting of a tornado like a mile away from us. Even the mall had everyone get in their shelter. Here are a few pictures of our basement stakeout.

These pictures don't do justice. The clouds are about 10x darker than the picture shows and the clouds were moving so fast toward us. It was scary, but really cool. Don't worry though-we survived!

These are some of the people I work with. Carissa is a fun girl (brown hair) and Jessica is my supervisor. We always have a good time at work. I feel so blessed to have a job that I like and coworkers that I love. We all went to a restaurant nearby to celebrate another coworker's retirement.

Some more of the girls. Linda is the one with the black hair in the back. This lady is definitely one of hte most unique people I have ever met- she wears fake eyelashes, and a fake hairpiece. She drives me batty at times, but overall she is a very interesting lady.

Fun Summer Night

We love having our bikes! It's so fun to go out and ride them at night. We rode them over to our friend's Judd and Haley's house and we had a little BBQ. It was lots of fun and it is so nice to be able to do things outside.

Sweet helmet huh? I die laughing everytime he wears it.

Our Little Garden

Some of our neighbors in the cul-de-sac have planted gardens along the side of their apartments so we decided to follow the trend. We planted tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, peppers, watermelon, zucchini, and other things that I can't remember off the top of my head=) It was hard work but it's fun to watch these little seeds go. We've had enough rain now we need some sun!

One Year Down, Three to Go!!! (Of Med School) =)

Well Dave is officially over with his first year of Med School! We can't believe how fast it flew by- and hope the others will go just as quick=) He did so well and handled everything beautifully. After hundreds of hours spent in the library and thousands of pages studied, we were ready to celebrate! We went to Outback Steakhouse with our closest M-1 friends and had such a good time. Good job babe!

After alot of food, and lack of sleep all week, these boys were ready for bed.

I even let him wear his cowboy hat to dinner- it was his night!
We love our Milwaukee buds
