The Worst Tagger!!!

I have been tagged twice, one of which was a really long time ago, and I am so lazy when it comes to being tagged and filling things out about myself. So here it goes.

I was first tagged by Melanie. Here are 7 things about me:

1. I absolutely LOVE In-N-Out!!!! I get to have the real thing in 3 weeks because we are going to Vegas!!!!

2. I love going snowboarding with my best hubby in the world, Joel!!!!

3. I have this thing for painting things while Joel is doing homework. I get so bored sometimes so I paint picture frames, magnet boards, big letter J's, etc.

4. I have always loved lifted trucks and since I got rid of my jeep that was lifted it is a good thing that Joel's truck can take Catchup's (the name of my jeep) place.

5. I love, love, love to go shopping. Clothes are the best!!!

6. I get so excited and passionate about life that I just can't handle it sometimes!!

"The Office"

I'm sure all of you have seen the Office!!! I'm also sure that you have all seen the episode where they did the office Olympics. At the law firm I work for we kind of had our own "office moment!" This week we had to reach a goal of 100 status checks this week and then we get Monday off paid. I wanted Monday off sooo bad so I worked so hard to reach the goal. I ended up getting them all done on Wednesday and was the first one to finish the status checks. They surprised me with a gift card to Applebee's for being the first one done. Once I finished it kind of became a race to see who could finish next. On Friday we thought it would only be right to have an award ceremony for the gold, silver, and bronze winners of the status checks. We had the National Anthem playing in the background and everything and our office manager awarded us with our medals. This was the funnest day of work ever!!!!!!!!!!! My "Office" is so cool!!!!

Happy Birthday to the Man of My Dreams!!!!

Everyone thinks of February 14th as Valentine's Day. I think of February 14th as my AMAZING husband's birthday!!! That's right Joel's birthday is on the most loved day of the year. Joel turned 27 today and doesn't look a day over 23. When I met Joel I thought he was for sure 21.... I was only off by 3 years!! :) I want to let Joel know how amazing he is and how grateful I am to have him as my best friend and husband. I love you Joel!!!!Joel woke up this morning to this banner! We love doing little surprises for each other.
When I asked Joel what he wanted to do for his birthday dinner he said I want you to make me a yummy steak dinner with mashed potatoes. That is exactly what he got and then some. We had a very romantic dinner just the two of us!!!

Even though it was Joel's birthday today he definitely gave me the most romantic Valentine's EVER!!! He first came to my work and surprised me with a dozen roses and balloons. I was sooo excited!!! It didn't stop there.... I came home from work to rose pedals going all the way up our stairs and into our bedroom. He is my romantic skater boy and I love him!!!
I love that Joel is completely selfless and even though it's his birthday he always makes Valentine's so special for me as well. I love you Joel for everything that you are and for making my life the best it can possibly be!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

And Happy Valentine's to all of you!!!
