Alot of things going on...

Happy Late Thanksgiving! I stole this pic from mom's blog but for some reason we didn't really take pictures. I have had a long couple weeks so I spent most of my time eating and sleeping. Thanks mom for understanding when I disappeared for a few hours at a time!!! I had such a great time. It was laid back and low maintenance. My favorite kind of vacation!! I can't wait to go back soon. Thank ya'll for everything and I can't wait to see ya'll again!!! I put all these pictures on here backwards, so we're going from recent to not so recent. Last weekend john and I went to Delaware to see mom and Keith. When we got back we decided to put Christmas stuff up. I know it was early but when it's freezing and snowing, it feels a little like Christmas to me.


Our tree is already filling up with presents (thanks mom!) and we went crazy with the lights.


Ok, so we're at the beginning now. 2 weeks ago, John told me he had a 29 hour layover in Philly. I called mom up and depending on how open the flights were, I was going to try and go. I got off of work last Friday, caught a flight to Chicago, then to Philly where Johns flight came in from Denver about the same time (1am). By the time mom and Keith picked us up and we got home it was 3am. Needless to say we were all exhausted. Saturday we went to IHOP and just enjoyed each others company. That night they dropped us off at the hotel that the pilots stay in. We were dying for sleep. WE were so exhausted. 4am came early, but we got to the airport and the flight was wide open. I could have had first class but I had a row of 3 seats to myself and I rather lay down to sleep than sit up. It was really cool being on a huge plane that John was flying. Since I have flown with John a ton of times, I knew what it would be like, but to see him in such a big flightdeck was awesome. We had 4 hours in Chicago before the Indy flight and we saw quite a few of my old pilots and flight attendants we used to work with. That was really cool!
Anyway, the past 2 weekends I have been in Delaware and during the week I have been working, so now I'm about to go relax. No cleaning or anything!! I hope everyone has a great 3 and 1/2 weeks before Christmas!!
Hold on...



I just reread everything I wrote and I forgot this picture was on here. I told you everything was out of order! For my birthday my mom and Keith got me a Coach purse!! I was (and still am) sooooo excited! I have never owned a coach purse and so course I'm showing it off to everyone. Anyway, sorry I forgot about this picture but Thanks mom for "The Purse". I can't wait to keep showing it off!!

Our Weekend

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Last week, John and I decided to try a cajun place on the OTHER SIDE of Indy. It's owned by a man from New Orleans. He certainly had an accent. Anyway, he was out of gumbo (bummer), but I had chicken stew. It was ok. Anyway, the place was kind of cool. As you can see, everyone signs the wall. There were alot of people from Louisiana who have been there. It was pretty cool.
John and I had a great weekend. Friday night we went out to eat and we went see "Role Models". It was funny. Saturday night we went to a wedding. It was very beautiful and romantic. John had a weird person sitting next to him, but that was ok. After the wedding, we took off and drove about an hour away to a Bed and Breakfast. It is such a wonderful little town. We love going there but it was our first time staying the night. The room was beautiful! We got up the next morning wondering what we would be eating for breakfast. Honey let me tell you, that breakfast was amazing! The cinnamon rolls were coated in icing and they had eggs and they sauteed potatoes, peppers, sausage, and cheese together. Holy cow! It was soooo good! Then we got ourselves some hot chocolate and started walking. We shopped for a few hours (and bought some great Christmas gifts!). When we finished shopping, we decided to drive another 25 minutes away to another little town to shop. By that point it was freezing and I was ready to go. On the way home we stopped at a winery. It was such a beautiful place but packed as could be. We bought some wine and took off. It was such a great weekend. I know we have challenges ahead with John's layoff, but I'm glad we got to spend some quality time together before the craziness of everything begins.

This was our bed and breakfast. The yellow sign kind of takes away from it, but it was smack in the middle of town. We never had to carry our bags far, because we just dropped them off as we went.


This is just a picture to show how cute the town is.Very quaint.



We look nice until you get to our feet. I wanted to be comfortable!

This and That

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUNT BARBARA, AUNT BETH, AND LINDSEY!!!! I hope ya'll have a wonderful day!!!!

This week/ weekend wasn't to exciting. John was finally home for the weekend,which I love, because I get my good breakfast. It's cold here. I mean cold! This minute it is 36 degrees and "feels like 25". I love the weather channel. If it feels like 25 degrees, then make it 25 degrees. But whatever.

We got some bad news Friday. John found out he'll be laid off Jan 14. We believe everything happens for a reason so we're trying to look at the bright side of things. As much as I don't like him to be gone, I hope he doesn't stop flying. We'll get through this one day at a time and hope for the best. Today John decided to rake the leaves. Riley just wanted to watch. Could he get any cuter? Next weekend we are going to the Bed and Breakfast, as well as a friends wedding so we're hoping the week flys by. Last night we went to John's 15 year high school reunion (I was 10 when he graduated, haha), and it was fun. Other than that, not much going on....

Halloween

So I went out for Halloween for the first time in a few years. John couldn't go because he had to work so we decided I would go out with our friend Clint. The night was a blast. It started out with meeting friends from work. My friend Adrienne and her fiance' picked me up and we went to a bar. I met my friend Angela and all of her friends. It was so much fun. Then my friend Clint called and he was going to meet me at the bar. However, the line to get in was way to long. I ended up leaving to go meet him, then we met up with a bunch of his friends. I ended up cabbing it home around 2:30am. This is Adrienne and I. Her outfit was too cute!
These are a few of Clint's friends. I didn't get a picture with Angela and her friends but she was dressed so cute!

This is me and Clint. We coordinated our outfits! (I was a cop and he was a prisoner)


The morning after I was feeling a little groggy. Plus, I had Junior mints and Chinese food so I felt normal again. I WASN'T hungover! I knew I would end up finding my own way home, so I stayed pretty sober but all in all it was a great night. There's more pics on Myspace.
Today I am cleaning the house and doing alot of reading. I am also taking down all the Halloween decorations and going put a deposit down on the Indianapolis reception place. My John comes home tomorrow, only to leave the next day for another trip. But thats ok because I still get to see him!!!!
