I have lived in Arizona for about two years now and traveled to several other states since being here, but I have never visited any other cities in Arizona. A couple friends and I decided to take a last-minute road trip (my favorite thing!) up to Flagstaff, Arizona. We wanted to see snow and get out of town for a day or so. It was cold, but awfully fun!

Dawn, Kelli and me.

Me and Jason

"Pretend we're on a ride" - Kelli

We found this awesome tractor in front of a restaurant.

Kelli especially loved the tractor...and I was obviously very amused.

We clearly couldn't get enough....

We also decided to sing a little rendition of Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody".

More trips to come! :)

Footy Metro Season 2010!

Well, it's that time again....Footy time (aka Australian Rules Football).

I'm very excited for the season to get started. I'm even more pumped for this season because my friend Rebecca and I got chosen to be Team Captains!!!

My team is: The Killer Bees
(we wear yellow jerseys)

We had a Draft party at the bowling alley to announce the teams!

Some of my Killer Bees!
Misty, Audra, Chalise, Me and Courtney!

Rebecca and Drea

Team Captains!
Desert Storm and Killer Bees.

Don't mind my lazy eye......

My mad bowling skills...and sweet socks.

I'll try to get some pictures of us actually playing this season so you can see me in action! :)

P.F. Changs Half Marathon 2010!!!!

My work is pretty big on living healthy and going "green" when they said they would pay for our registration for the P.F. Changs half marathon, I got this brilliant idea to start training for it. Then I convinced a couple other suckers to join me.

Although we didn't all (stupid holidays), we still ran it!
This race (or maybe it was the medal we got at the end) made me actually want to train!
Full Marathon in my future? Maybe.

This is Rebecca, my partner in crime.

We stuck together the whole time to keep each other motivated!

(not the most flattering picture...)
Guess I was excited to be done!!!
Josefa, Me and Rebecca. Josefa didn't stick with us, she's a little faster.
I had a good time. More races to come! :)

Borrowing Internet

"Borrowing" internet from your neighbors is not a good idea.....because sometimes they move.
We are currently stuck without internet.
It's very annoying.
3 weeks and counting.

I am, however, much more productive with my time though.
I read more.
I plan/iron my work outfits for the next day.
Pack my lunch.
Spend more time at the gym.
I do however miss blog stalking and facebook creeping.

Maybe we'll pay for our own connection someday.....or we'll just wait for new neighbors.

Barn House Flea Market!!!!

The Barn House Flea Market is FINALLY here!! I've been in Washington for the past week helping my mom and Kat set up their booth for the show. It's UNBELIEVABLE the amount of stuff people are setting up. I don't know I'm going to get home some of the great things I've already purchased.

Be there or be square!

Footy Campin'

Some people from my footy team organized a camping trip last weekend. Although I love camping, it's not the same going without my family. I wasn't as well equipped as they are. Once we got up the mountain I realized that I forgot a pad to sleep on and a pillow. Yea. Sleeping on the jagged rocks didn't make the for the best sleep..but it was still fun! It was freezing too. Who knew it would be cold in Arizona?

This picture took forever to get.

See, Arizona can be pretty!

This pic makes me laugh. There's my coach in the background.
Coach Donger choppin' some wood for us.
The tent we set up by ourselves!
(Thx for letting us borrow it Kirk & Whit!)

Me and Rebecca

They made fun of me for putting on a lil' makeup.

That's Karla in the background. I love her.
She's the coach's wife.

We went on a drive and found a Tee-Pee!

I got into a water fight!
This is me shaking off the water. It was so cold!

Trying to dry off by the fire.

We bought marshmallows the size of a fist!
They were amazing!

We really liked them, if you can't tell.

Awfully messy though!
