An Adventure Close to Home!

Our kids were gone for the weekend AND it just so happened to be my birthday! That was all the motivation we needed to pack a small bag and jump in the car. We convinced a couple friends to go too.

And off we went, to The Biggest Little City in the World, Reno, Nevada!

Biggest Little City

Just a short 4 hour drive from home, we pulled into the little city that never sleeps. We check into our hotel close to 11pm, and the activity buzzing around us made us feel like it more like 11 in the morning. It was a party from the second we walked in!

We stayed at The Silver Legacy.

BEST DECISION EVER.

You don’t even need to step outside…unless you dig those McDonalds Egg McMuffins, like we do, then you simply must walk across the street! Otherwise, since The Silver Legacy is connected to a few other casino/hotels, it was PERFECT. Everything we wanted was at our fingertips.

We didn’t need much. We wanted to have fun. It was my birthday for cryin out loud! Dancing, drinks, activity, food, games, prizes, live music, comedy shows, slot machines, craps, poker, spa, pool, hot tubs….it was all near us. Walking distance.

With no time to lose, we dropped our stuff in the room and headed back out into the action.

We found some band members from Three Doors Down. They ended up being SUPER nice!IMG_4468IMG_4469

These guys found a big chair.IMG_4477

Nicolle found a giant elephant.

I then had to save said elephant.IMG_4667

 

I found my happy place…IMG_4671

 

We made it until the wee hours of the morning. Then we needed a bit of sleep.

The next day was already here. I had BIG plans for the next day. Circus Circus. I am a grown up child. I would much rather play circus games than the slot machines, so that was the plan. Coffee, food and then GAMES!

One of us was WAY happier about Starbucks than the other.

Have YOU ever had a BEER FLOAT? Holy MESS!IMG_4679 IMG_4680 IMG_4678

Comedy show time!IMG_4681

FINALLY, sometime around midnight…or 2am…or 4ish…I really have NO idea what time it was….I got some birthday cake! Mmmmm! IMG_4682

Annnnnddd….our trip was complete. Fun was had. Laughter was abounding.

Super SUCCESSFUL little get-a-way. We will do it again. Hopefully sooner than later.

Some of our best little get-a-ways have been the ones we hardly even planned…

 

 

The Simple.

I painted my nails.

I NEVER paint my nails. My nails are like tools. I open things, I scrape things, I poke things…they are handy. Like having my own little Swiss Army Knife with me at all times.

The husband says I look more like a girl when I paint them though. I even added glitter. It’s like a party on my fingertips.

The Awesome.

Banana Cream Pie.

It is NO secret that I LOOOVVEEEE banana cream pie. So, I bought myself one.

It’s my birthday week.

No, I did not eat all that pie. Those other people in my house keep eating it.

Gettin Crafty! A gift EVERYONE can use!

Ok, maybe everyone is an over-statement…

How bout this, anyone with a few kids and maybe a few kids with kids. Or someone with like 12 sisters and/or brothers. No really.

I saw this pic on the famous Pinterest (ya, I mess around on there once in a while – Jenn Parke if ya want to follow my boards or whatever). I am TERRIBLE at following directions, so I often look at pictures and then figure out how to do it by looking at it.

Saw this. Pinned it. Then screen shot it and went shopping.

fam birthdays

 

From Michael’s, I purchased a 14″x4″ blank wall plaque ($3.99) and 2 packages of the little round wooden discs (3.49 each). From Ace Hardware, I purchased a 14 piece package of little silver eye screws (2.29) and a spool of wire (3.99).

I really wanted silver little S hooks, but those little guys are actually quite pricey, and I was considering making quite a few of these….

From Walmart, I purchased a can of Khaki colored spray pain ($3.00).

Total: $17.25, or $20.25 if I include the paint, which isn’t really fair because it will be used for MANY other things…..

I posted a pic of the finished project on Instagram (yep, I’m there too…) and people were all sorts of interested in HOW I DID IT! I went back to the original pic I found on Pinterest and the link no longer works…so I how no way to point people to it! So I thought…hey, I can at least tell people how I made it!

Step 1: Lay all the materials out and paint. Let dry.

Step 2: Apply a second coat. Let dry.

Step 3: Measure center and draw light pencil line for FAMILY text. Sponge paint the word FAMILY in all caps in center of plaque.

IMG_1298

 

I already had 2 inch letter stencils, so I used those. I also had a deep red paint and used an old sponge to paint the letters with.

Step 4: Once the FAMILY was painted and dry, I drew another light line in the center of that and free-hand wrote birthdays with a black permanent marker.

Step 5: Measure out and make center marks for the 12 months. Abbreviate each month above the center mark. This is the step I was least pleased with, and that was because of the plaque I chose. Because it had raised sides, I was unable to use a stencil or even write in a nice, fun font….

Step 6: Screw in the eye thingys under each month. (I enlisted the help of my darling hubs for this job)

IMG_1300

 

Step 7: Write the names and days of birth of each family member on a wooden disc.

Step 8: Drill a small hole at the top and bottom of each disc. Big enough for the wire (or hook) to go through.

Step 9: Assemble and viola!

The Happy Couple and their new family birthday chart! I think they like it!

Gonna Getcho Birthday On!

Ok, so I was going to start with “I Once was Lost, but Then You Found Me…” but that was kinda sorta about finding Jesus.

Then I was going to say “You Complete Me” but that was a story I did a long time ago about my first iPhone.

So, having to start from scratch…..

You Lost Completely Until You Found Me!

Ha!! Ok, not for real, YOU are the greatest gift God could have EVER given me. You are the most AMAZING father to your children, and INCREDIBLE husband to me, a WONDERFUL brother, a FANTASTIC son, but most of all, you are my VERY BEST Friend. You have been the firm rock that has held this family together over the last few years of tragedies. We have had a lot of tears, but you have always been the first one there to wipe them away. You keep our focus on God and His ways, you are raising our kids up in His ways. Also, you are FUNNY. Sooooo FUNNY.

You are truly without a doubt, my most FAVORITEST, EXTRAORDINARY, FABULOUS PERSON on this whole planet.

I always want your birthdays to be FABULOUS and UNFORGETTABLE.

This year was tough.. I thought about Nerf Bars for your truck….

Of course I considered the new iPad

But then……A friend had a FANTASTIC idea…..

 

I can NAME A STAR AFTER YOU!!!!

Happy Happy Happy Happy Birthday to my Nerdy Cupcake Sugar Love Muffin Schnoochams (That was a little long for the Star Naming Counsel, but I made them accept it.

143 ALWAYS!  Let’s run off into the sunset together!! ;o)
