I've been trying to get the hubby to get a new truck for a couple years and it has finally happened! LOL We weren't really planning on getting one until late winter or early spring, but other circumstances have dictated that we move forward and with the 2011 end of model sells the timing was good. He'd been looking around researching and finally settled on Nissan (no surprise, his other is Nissan lol), so started looking at what dealers had what he wanted available...

Well like I said model end closeouts were going on so, luckily he found 1 lol... There was 1, yes I repeat ONE - 2011 Frontier Crew Cab SL left in the state... It was at the dealer right the street from us! The only thing is that it has the long bed instead of the short bed, so it just barely fits in the garage and he wanted red, but black is beautiful! lol
It's good to have a black beast in the garage again! :D

It's September Already!

It's amazing the amount of activity that can be packed into a month! Crazy busy, but hey it's going to start cooling down finally!

We had to get the ac fixed, the garage door opener fixed, Ryan's car a couple of times, moved both boys, took a road trip, yard work, clean, clean, and more clean. hahaha

We got Ryan all moved in to his new place. Travis and Stephanie got moved into their apartment also and are enjoying their new found freedoms! They got Izzy D a new little brother, his name is Bowser. At 3.5 months old, he is a little brindle daredevil of a pit-mix that enjoys chasing and pouncing on full pit Izzy! Izzy is very very happy with his new little bro!   

I really thought that it would be a lot quieter around here once everyone had moved out ... boy do I stand corrected! It is quieter on average, but still a lot of in and out with activity with visitors, but that I won't complain about, I like them to visit. ;) I never thought that I'd go back to washing dishes by hand, but on nights when it's just the 2 of us it seems silly to use up energy running the dishwasher for so few dishes! It's a tough life, but someone has to have it! Whew! hehehe
For good luck
 put your hand in my mouth,
If you are TRUTHFUL
pull it out, BUT!
If you must WONDER
I may BITE until
Rich and I had a GREAT 25th anniversary. We took a day trip to Flagstaff. We did a little sight seeing around 'Old Flagstaff', a nature walk through the Arboretum, and then relaxed a bit at Oak Creek! We both just love going to Oak Creek.

This was at the Arboretum in Flagstaff. Don't worry he got his hand out. lol
