Vacation 2012

Travis and I just got home from a lovely 10 day vacation. 
We got to spend our time in California with my family.
It was so nice to be home, but as always it goes by far too fast. 
There are so many people I want to see, and as always I don't 
have enough time to spend with each and everyone. 
I hate feeling spread so thin while I am there. 
But enough complaining! On to the trip.

The whole point of the trip was based around my sister and brother inlaw's
house warming party they were having. 
So the first few days were spent working on my sister's house.
My sister and her husband both work full time and had a ton of 
work to do on the house, so it's been a work in progress.
But, we were able to get it all together just in time for the party!
I don't have any pictures. Sorry. 
It was a lovely party. 
And I was able to see lots of family and friends at one time!

Between getting ready for the party I was able to get away for 
a few hours to go down and visit Kim and the girls! 
It was so great seeing the girls.
I miss those ladies like CRAZY. 

Travis got to do lots of golfing while we there.
We did some wine tasting.
A little bit of reading. I may have read through the 2nd & 3rd books
in the "50 Shades" trilogy. I'm obsessed.
Many, many cocktails were consumed.
Spent a day at the pool with my sister and mom.
Had breakfast with my cousin and her family.
One day Kim drove up and met my sister, mom and I at Pechanga
for some old school Bingo! woohoo
(Random fact, I LOVE bingo)
After bingo we went to winery to enjoy some wine and chit chat.
By the end of that we all needed to eat so we met Travis and my dad
at our favorite mexican restaurant. 
While I LOVE the girls, it's so nice getting to spend time with Kim alone.

In a nutshell, that was our vacation.
We got home yesterday, and spent all day today doing laundry
and trying to prepare mentally for going back to work. 
 It was a wonderful getaway.

* Miramonte Winery. They did an excellent job on their recent reno

* A pitcher of Sangria and snacks makes everything in the world great

*Moonshine soaked cherries. They will knock you on your ass

* B-I-N-G-O

* The soundtrack to our drive to LAX to pick up Travis. Let the good times roll

* Hippie juice. Mmm

* This is Pearl, my parents newest addition. More on her later.

* This is why Virgin rocks

I've been MIA recently.
I just don't feel like there is anything exciting to blog about
and I don't want to bore you guys to death with posts about nothing. 
Here are the few things that have been going on.

We would really appreciate some prayers. 
Things have been mentioned numerous times and in several different
ways that a promotion is on the horizon for T.
He has worked so hard for this, and he really does deserve it.
I just wish we knew when we would find out. 
The other part of the promotion is that it could be anywhere in the
DFW metroplex. I'm hoping it's close enough that we don't have to move.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the area we live in. 
Aside from back in Cali there is nowhere else I want to live. 

*** TMI alert*** You've been warned. 
Like I mentioned we took this past month off of treatments so I 
could work on my stress levels, and overall health. 
Well, for the first time in who knows how long I had a normal cycle length.
When not medicated my cycles are between 40 - 56 days. 
This month was 33 days! I know it doesn't seem like much, but 
for this girl that was huge. I would be thrilled if this continued. 

I started seeing a chiropractor/wellness Dr last week. 
He has me taking all sorts of pills. 
8 pills three times a day to be exact. 
And some terrible Gallbladder drink that burns like fire going down. 
We will leave out the details, but I can tell you this stuff is working. 
I also had to keep a food diary this week.
Hahaha, that was fun. 
I truthfully don't have huge expectations for all this,
I'm just hoping for better overall health. 
Oh, and I'm also taking Royal Jelly now.
And praying it's magical powers help me out!!

Fourteen days until I get to see my family and friends.
