Happy Halloween!

We had a work show where we got to wear costumes yesterday so I designed costumes for my area manager, Jessica and I that resembled bottles of our company product. They turned out pretty great and we were a big hit! Ken and I are being football refs for Halloween this year. Maybe I will get around to posting those pictures someday along with the ones from our amazing one year anniversary which we spent at a Bed & Breakfast in Julian (total surprise for me from Ken) it was amazing!!

Happy BIrthday Grandma Ballard!!!

So I called my
Grandma Ballard today in Florida to wish her a Happy Birthday and she told me that all she wanted was a picture posted on the blog since it has been stuck on the same page for I don't even know how many months now!!....So here you go Grandma, I'm not promising I'll stay on top of it this time (since I know I probably won't) but I can definitely grant you your birthday wish. I love you and hope you have a great birthday!! Here are some pictures from our wedding which was this time last year.

Happy Birthday Mark!!

So, Mark has been like a part of our family for some time now. We met him back when he was a missionary in Colorado, I think I was like 14 or something, I really can't remember. There was an instant connection between him and our family and he has been with us ever since celebrating all major events and just like being another big brother. I call him my "not brother" because he's not by blood, but likes to tease me as a brother would. Mark and his wife Wendy even came on our wedding cruise and come down to San Diego to visit quite a bit which is always fun. Mark's birthday was on the 9th, so Happy Birthday Mark!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday Mom!!

Oops, I dropped the ball on this one, it was my mom's birthday on March 3rd and I totally forgot to post it. We went out to the Outback Steakhouse with my parents to celebrate it and then to Sports Chalet for some fun prizes. We had a really good night. We love you mom and are so grateful for all you do!!!!!! Happy Birthday!!!!!!!

Weekend with Bandido

This weekend we had Bandido at our place because my parents had to leave town last minute. We love having him; the only pain is that we are in a small apartment with no yard, oh well, it's still fun and Bandido does a good job at our place. He definitely gave us more reasons to get outdoors over the weekend to enjoy the beautiful San Diego weather. One day we went to the OB Pier with Jen, Garret and Ryan and fished. It was fun and Bandido was loving it until he got a little cold. He then spent the next couple of hours buried in my sweatshirt. It was super cute and he kept me warm so I was happy. All in all it was a fun weekend and good to have Bandido with us for a few days!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day filled with lots of love and fun surprises! Ken and I had a laid back day, it was so nice. Ken made me an amazing breakfast in bed with flowers and a sweet card. I was super excited. We watched TV and took a nap and relaxed all day. It was great!! We didn't even get up to shower until like around 5 that afternoon and then made a yummy dinner together and just relaxed some more. I had a cold over the weekend so it was exactly what was needed!! I love you Ken, thanks for a perfect day!!
