Happy Birthday to ME!

Sunday was my birthday, my 28th birthday! I was excited until I was asked to speak in church. It sucked, but Brett and I did well with our talks. After church I put on my party shoes and we went to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner. It was so good!!! When we got home there was a cupcake with a candle in it at our door. Some women from church brought it by for me. I had a nice day, but has anyone noticed how birthday's just aren't that exciting once you get older?

Stella and Cash

We took Stella with us to visit Brett's family. She loved being up there where she could run around in a bigger house and in a huge yard and not worry about cars. Cash, Brett's parent's dog, did NOT like Stella. He would growl and sometimes even try to bite her. That didn't stop her from tormenting Cash though.

Brett's mom and dad just loved Stella. Jan fed her Beggin' Strips every few minutes and unfortunately those little strips gave Stella the smelliest toots ever! But she loved them!

And here's the tree!

Thanksgiving and the tree

Brett and I went to Idaho for Thanksgiving, we had a really good time. We went to his grandparent's house for dinner. I thought I would be awesome and make some rolls for the dinner. Let me first say, I am usually an awesome baker and cook, but I RUINED these rolls. Not sure how it happened, but they SUCKED! I followed the recipe exactly, but they were awful. I was so embarrassed. Well, I was more embarrassed when my brother-in-law later mentioned that his fiance works at the Lion House Bakery and makes these very same rolls every day. Then I felt slightly mortified. Oh well, I tried!

The day after, we went to cut down a tree in the mountains. It was freezing! Brett had put all my snow gear in the car and we were ready to go. Then we realized we were taking a different car, so I asked Brett to put my stuff in the new car. He said he did, so off we went. Yeah well, he didn't put my snow gear in the new car. So there I was in my jeans and Uggs, trying to climb a mountain to find the perfect tree. If any of you have ever owned a pair of Uggs, you know that they have zero traction, so I kept slipping and falling all over the place. It was actually kind of funny.

What a difference a year makes

May of 2006 I finally changed my last name, and therefore got a new drivers license. I looked awful, and who knows why I chose to wear a tan colored sweater. And one last question, where did my neck go?

October of 2007, I had to change my address on my drivers license. Sure I didn't have to get an entirely new license, but I hated the above picture, so I wanted a new one. And... drum roll please..... The new and improved Tara, one year later and almost 40 pounds thinner!

What's the Point?

Halloween used to be fun. Now, at 28, what's the point. We don't have kids, we don't have friends, so what do you do on all Hollow's Eve?

Here's what you do... you go to the gym, because most people have something to do on Halloween, so it's totally empty, then you go to Albertson's, again, because most people have something to do, so it's totally empty, then you go to bed at 9. It was a great night! No one was around to bug us.
