Happy Birthday Mike!

Today is my hunny bunny's birthday. He is better known to everyone else as Mike.

I want to wish Mike a very Happy Birthday. He is 57 today. He will say he is 32. But he is really 57.

So in celebration of his special day. I thought I would share with you some of my most favorite photos of him. Or of the two of us together.

Taken at the San Diego temple December 2009.

Mike is always wearing sun glasses.

This was a fun photo taken on our last vacation to Cave Creek Arizona. August 2009.

This is a typical shot of Mike while driving on vacation. Eating sunflower seeds.

Or pumpkin seeds.

I love this photo. I think it might be my favorite. I love Mike the best when he is in a silly mood. Don't you love his hair?

Las Vegas Jan 2009

These next photos are my favorites of the two of us on our Europe trip in 2003. In fact, it was exactly 7 years ago today that we were in London England.

The two of us in London. That is Big Ben in the background. I had jet lag so bad. We landed in London about 10am on 2/24/03. We couldn't check into our hotel until 2pm. So we had to walk around London for about 4 hours.

After London we went to Paris France. I didn't get many photos while in Paris (my biggest regret). Here is the three of us in front of the Eiffel Tower (Brandon went on the trip with us). Someone else took the photo, so it's not the best.

Mike & I in front of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

Lucerne Switzerland

On the lake in Switzerland.

Throwing coins into the Trevi Fountain in Rome Italy.

Down in the catacombs in Rome.

Inside the Roman Coliseum. This was the one place Mike had wanted to see his entire life.

The Baptistry doors in Florence Italy

Gondola ride in Venice Italy. Everyone must do this!!!

Innsbruck Austria.

Shopping in Heidelburg Germany

Now some photos of some of our early vacations.
What we won't do for love. Las Vegas. Not sure of the year.

Had a bit of trouble in Bryce Canyon Utah. Seems we were always getting into trouble.

Mike & Jesse at Schlitterbahn in Texas. Eating like true men.

Mike pretending to moon a cactus in Arizona.

And now I will show you what I would buy Mike for his birthday if I had $1000 to spend.

We saw the original of the Nike Winged Victory statue in the Louvre in Paris. We have a couple of smaller versions. But he wants this big one for the back yard. Lucky for me, he isn't holding his breath. Or I'd be a widow. Maybe someday (if I win the lotto).

Happy Birthday Mike!!!! I love you!!!

Danica's Makeup party

A week ago Saturday, I went to Eric's house to attend Danica's makeup party. Danica is a representative for Mark makeup. It is great makeup at great prices. Just right for budget minded people like me and you.

So as a representative Danica must have a makeup party every now and again. This was the first one I attended.

We started off with lunch. Now, that's my idea of a fabulous party!!!! Food!!!!

The cupcakes were soooooo yummy!!!

The sandwiches weren't too bad either.

After lunch we all gathered in the front room for a makeup demonstration.

See the photos in the middle? That is Lauren Conrad of The Hills in the middle and Miley Cyrus on the right. I forget who is on the left. Anyways, they all use Mark makeup. I should be letting Danica write this post since she knows all about the company. I didn't pay attention too much.

Danica had all these makeup samples for us to try.

Here are the magalogs. Isn't that a funny name? That is what Danica called them. They are part magazine and part catalog, you know, magalog.

Danica picking out color choices for each of us.

Here is Danica after the demonstration. I should have taken photos while she was demonstrating. But I was busy watching. She even did my eye makeup. Looked fabulous!!!

Danica and her best friend Bethany. Sorry for the blurry photo.

There was only about 6 of us there. But we had a fun time.

If any of you need some makeup. You can order online by clicking here. Takes you directly to her webstore. Right now they have free shipping on your $20.00 order. Just enter promo code MFS20. This special offer ends 2/28/10.

I am not getting any compensation for this ad. Just helping out my niece.

So go now, and buy some makeup.

P.S. I had a small super bowl party yesterday with my family, Jesse's girlfriend and Danica. But did I take any photos??? NO!!!!!!

But was happy that the Saints won. GO SAINTS!!!!!

Should have been the Chargers.

There is always next year!

Where Is Kim?

Have you been wondering why Kim has not posted anything on the blog for a while? Well I know why, she has been here in El Cajon helping with Mom who had open heart surgery 2 weeks ago today. She has been keeping Mom company while I am at work. She also eats our food and plays on her computer.

More later, Mom is feeling alot better because she is nagging us.
