Cinco De Mayo and an Auction

Last week we had 5 straight days of baseball!  An absolute joy to any Razorback baseball fan.  We had to sit through some rain and we had a little bit of a rain delay for one game.  One of the games also fell on Cinco De Mayo and my favorite mascot Ribby got to have a little fun!  On Friday's game they wore my favorite uniforms of the year so far!!!  We don't have any baseball games this weekend which works out for me since I have to work all weekend all but there will be plenty of baseball for next weekend! :)
Scary looking weather coming in!
Don't you love rain delays?
Ribby I love you!!
I wish they would wear there socks up all of the time!
Last Saturday Chris and I got up really early and went to all of the craft fairs at the convention centers.  When we got finished there he went to go play disc golf and I went to see Dwight to get my new feathers put in.  My first feathers fell out and Dwight put in some new red and blue feathers just in time for the New School auction that night.  We got asked to attend by our friends Kathleen and Vaden who work there.  We won a gift card to Feltner Brothers for $11 and it's worth $15. There were all kinds of things up for auction.  Kathleen won a brand new Coach bag and James and Dwight won a HuHot gift card.  All in all it was a great night and it was followed by a wonderful Mother's day with my family!!
Dwight curled my feathers so you could see them.

Waiting for the auction to get finished.
We finally had to find a place to sit because it was so hot!

April Recap

The month of April for us was absolutely crazy!  We were so busy with baseball games and events with friends that we hardly spent anytime at home.  The month of April also had some big things that happened.  We attended Greg and Becky's annual baseball brunch and Chris's family got to come up for that.

Have you ever heard the express when Murphy comes knocking at your door?  Well Murphy has been hitting us pretty hard lately.  First the brand new iPad2 fell on the floor and the screen was completely shattered in one corner.  I'm taking complete blame for this but if you want the real story send me a text or email and I might tell you what really happened, just as long as you don't tell Chris!! :)  Thankfully when we went to Tulsa for the Razorback vs. ORU baseball game we stopped by the Apple store and they ordered us a brand iPad2 for free.  We just had to drive back to Tulsa to get the new one.  Which all we had to do was pay for gas and food.

Then the dishwasher broke with some help from Chris. So we got a brand new one which I absolutely LOVE!  It is so quiet that I forgot that it's even on and the dishes have never been so clean before!!  I also had all four of my wisdom teeth removed which was one of the worst experiences I've ever had.  When I had my appendix out I wasn't in that much pain.  Apparently one of my nerves was exposed so I had to go back to the oral surgeon for them to pack it full of some nasty stuff that tasted like cloves.  But needless to say I'm back to my normal self and I'm glad that it's all over with!

While I was having my wisdom teeth removed we had a hail storm and our Saturn was at the car dealership getting new door locks so it got hail damage while it was there.  So we have an appointment to have it looked at tomorrow to see how much the damage will cost.

The weather around here has been absolutely crazy!!  We have had tons of rain that has caused flooding and it's been really hot.  We turned the air conditioner on last week and we started to hear a strange noise coming from the vent.  Today the air guy came out and told us that a piece of paper was stuck in the vent.  So needless to say we had to pay someone to come out and remove a little piece of paper!!

I'm hoping that nothing else breaks or anything else goes wrong in the next month or so.  We are going back on the Dave Ramsey budget until we get our emergency fund fully funded again!!  Which means no more eating out, which we have been doing a lot lately anyways.  Sorry for my ranting today.  I promise the next post will be more positive! :)
