So...Ben and I went to VEGAS for the third time in the past 12 months! I know we are pretty much insane.  But every time we have a great reason to go -- ha, like you need a reason to go to Las Vegas!  Anniversary, New Years Celebration, and now we went to see Kenny Chesney live in concert.  He was amazing to see live! He played for over 2 1/2 hours! We traveled with some wonderful friends and stayed at the Venetian...enjoy some photos...

home repairs

I guess it's time for a new post! Especially in 2010! :)

Ben and I are doing some so many renovations to our house!! It is crazy -- we ripped out our carpet, put down hardwood floors, painted 5 or 6 walls, put down a new countertop in our bathroom, laid tile in our master bathroom and guest bathroom, hmmm... I think that is it for now-- but I'll post more later and add photos! oh by the way -- this has been going on for more than 7 weeks! We hope to finish EVERYTHING by Thursday! It is our goal so we'll see! We have friends coming in town on Friday so it has to be finish...:)
