Hey guys!

Well we went home for our Great Uncles funeral and we really had a wonderful time with our family (if you can have such a time during death).  However our Uncle was 94 years old and had been able to live alone for all those years with the exception of 3 months at the very end.  Everything was all about him for the funeral. The casket was made out of a wood that was able to grow on his farm (not from his actual farm but you get the pic).  My mother in law got up and made a beautiful speech about his life and the farm.  It was very touching and very loving. I cannot say enough about my mother in law.  Through this whole thing she has been taking her parents up to the hospital to see our Great Uncle (our grandpas older brother), she has brought pies, and most of all her time and loving spirit. While we were up there for this funeral a cousin on the same side of the family lost her battle with brest cancer.  So the family as a whole has been going through a lot.

When we came home we found out that on the my mother in laws brother went into the hospital.  His oxygen levels are/were not up to par. So he is pretty sick, than our Grandpa (same side) went into the hosipal to get a stint and defibulator put into his heart. My mother in law was in charge of it all!  I mean really, God bless that woman.  She works a full time job of physical labor, gets out of work and takes care of all this!  She is an angel for sure. Just  a day after all of this my dad in law (parents divorced) calls us up and tells us him and my step mom in law have had to put their dog down!!! I mean hit after hit after hit. SOOOO needless to say we have been a bit preoccupied.

In GREAT NEWS… my parents are flying to Florida for their 2 interview 🙂  This looks like it is becoming awesome!

My sister and her husband are building a house (Cara, you will get my order soon)!!!  I mean so much awesomeness is going on with my side of the family. My cousin graduated college.  Trent and I went out to dinner with the President of our company. I mean good things are going on here!

Okay, just thought I would do some updated. I will talk to you all so soon!

Sorry this post is so late but here is our weekend with my mom and dad.
So we start off the day thinking we are going to ride the ol subway system. Well we go to the one train station and see that another train is coming in another location an hour earlier than this one. SO we run over there, park the car, realize no one has any quarters and the train is coming in like 10 minutes. So my mom and I go and try to get tickets, my dad and Trent run to go get 12 dollars in quarters. Well, they start taking forever. I am afraid to buy the tickets in case they do not make it in time.. We just do not know what to do. Well all of a sudden we see my dad and Trent sprinting to the car and then sprint to us. We buy the tickets and we wait…. we wait some more.. and we finally decide to talk to two guys who actually happen to be twins. They tell us the train will take us where we want to go and we wait…… and wait…. the twins decide to go for a walk and leave us there. We decide to go for a walk and we catch the twins getting on a bus instead. We decide to stalk and follow. This is a pick of us on a the bus. YAY we got seats on public transportation!!!

We make it to the Port Authority and realize that we need a little coffee to get the day started on a positive note.

As you can see mom and Trent was pretty excited about the Chia Tea Lattes. DELISH!
We walked around Time Square for a bit then made our way over to Central Park where it was completely different than I thought it would be. There are so many rocks there and trails. It is AWESOME!

We then got frisky with our pics and decided to be funny.

If you have not noticed, there is a clothing theme to these pics. My mom and I both own a white North Face. We both wore them. Dad does not own a black North Face but Trent owns 2 (one being old and now used for work and one being brand new)

Our friend J lives in NYC so we decided to meet up with him and he took us all around and we finally landed and a little place called crumbs!  This is the awesomeness that we found in the shop!

J than had to leave us, since we did not tell him we would be in the city until that morning. We walked to the Public Library and in the park, there is this awesome little drinks place. It was a deck with a bar. There is a fire pit and bench swings. It was AWESOME! So relaxing after an all day walking event. Here is mom and I swinging on our little swing.

AFter a couple more hours of walking, I decide I would like some pizza. My mom quickly agrees and it does not take long for the guys to get right on the pizza train. And this is how we ended our night! SOOOO DELISH!

After we warmed up by the fire for a bit we walked around some more and made our way back into Times Square so we could see it at night. SO BRIGHT!

So it is Friday and Trent and I are still at work… ugh.  My parents are in town for just a small amount of time, yet we have to work late.  It is really throwing me off my game. Lucky for me, my parents are making us some dinner which means I will be able to walk through the door and eat instead of having to make the dinner. Thank God for mom and dad!

We walk through the door and man oh man have they gone shopping. The got us some more groceries, there is shrimp, asparagus, cheesy mashed potatoes and some homemade chicken nuggets.  OH MY GOODNESS so much food so little time. We all eat generous portions of this wonderful food and sit around and talk for the rest of the night.  

My mom and I went for a walk on the treadmill to have some girl time and we caught up (which is funny cause we at least text once a day).  Oh, how I miss my parents when they are gone.  I just have such a great relationship with the both of them.  Around 11:30 we decide to call it a night and go to bed.  Tomorrow (Saturday) we get to go out on the town to NYC.  I am so excited to go on this adventure with them. YAY Parents.

Momma and Pappa P have finally made their arrival to NJ.  We are so excited for our time with them.  Now if only I could somehow get out of work and go hang out with them for the time they are here…. STUPID RESPONSIBILITIES!  Hahaha.

They got in last night at 9:30pm.  We picked them up at the horrible Newark Airport. UGh, have I mentioned how badly that airport sucks? The signage there alone is enough to make you want to pull your hair out. The signs are brown and they are confusing. Like this whole thing: United Express -Terminal A……. United Express: Terminal C….. umm ok so what terminal do I need to go to?  Is it A or is it C?  we picked A… it was wrong. We than make our way over to Terminal C and it is a ZOO!

There is some cop that is trying to direct traffic but all he is doing is making it so that people almost get into accidents. Really, he is completely unhelpful. The exact opposite really. I finally see my mom and put my body out the window so they can see me. THEY DO!  The literally run across 3 lanes of traffic, through the luggage in the back and get in the car. They made it in the car~small miracle.

We than make our way home, take a wrong turn cause the streets and our GPS are insane. Get home, show them the view of NYC from the rooftop parking, get in and Trent and I go to bed.

My mom has been texting me all morning. She is making us dinner and I have requested something with cheesy potatoes… my FAVORITE! SO far So good.

Oh my goodness you guys!  You will not believe what just happened to me, literally like 5 minutes ago.  So it is morning, I am at work of course.  No one is here besides, Trent, a co-worker, and myself.  Well I decided to run to the bathroom before any one else got here.

The bathrooms are Port-A-Johns. We have 2 right next to one another out in the clearing. When you are in the bathroom you are supposed to lock the door.  This lock will indicate to outsiders that someone is using the restroom because it shows up red on the outside of the door. If the door is unlocked it shows up green. Get it?

Well both showed the signes of green, so I decided to go in the one without the wasps nest because that one makes me nervous a bit. Well I hope the door and there is a co-worked. I scream, try to figure out how I opened the door, say Oh My Gosh, I am so sorry and close it. All while looking him in the eye for what feels like forever! The person in there is on the level of being a boss. He is not on this job, but when I was in MN he was my boss!.

I went to the bathroom, came back in the office and Trent was like “So are ya a little red in the face?”  Now everyone has shown up for work by this time.  I asnwer ‘Who doesn’t like the stupid door when they are in it?”  Everyone of the guys said they don’t!  UGH. Thats what I get for being the only girl on the job! hahaha

So, I woke up in the morning to my husband doing some Birthday singing for me! Awww!  I got ready for work and made myself actually look like a girl, instead of my normal look for work (Pony, mascara).

The night before my birthday we made some strawberry cupcakes with homemade raspberry frosting. OH MY GOODNESS, the frosting alone was to die for! Trent decorated them and the guys at work loved them, almost as much as I did.

After work we came home. We rounded the corner and there were green balloons on the door. I walk in and this is what I see…

The house was decorated for me! Somehow Trent managed to come home during the work day and put up some decorations to make me feel special. Oh, goodness. I love that guy! He is the best. We had pizza grilled cheeses per my request. They were delish! As Trent was cleaning up he asked if I could put something in the freezer

And this is what I pulled out

It is a package of Magnum carmel ice cream bars! SOOO good. On the wrapping paper it had two coupons. One for the Hunger Games movie and the other for a Paid of Jeans! I loved it and it opened the gate for me to open my cards and gifts!

My friends and family decided to hook me up with cards and gifts and I felt so special!!!

So that is my birthday in a nutshell. Hope you enjoyed the pics as much as I enjoyed my day!!!

Sooo. My birthday was yesterday but we will talk about that tomorrow. I want to dig right in to what I did on St. Patricks Day. YUMM

So I told you I wanted a Shamrock Shake from McDonalds. Well I got it!!!  Here we go 🙂

So we run some errands first and then decide it is ShAkE time. OO so exciting. We type in McDonalds into the ol Garmin and take off. We start driving a bit and realize we have entered the ghetto, after passing 3 Burger Kings and one Wendy’s. It was a little scary but as you can see from the above pic, we were pretty stoked to be waiting in the drive thru! OO the anticipation, can you just see it on our faces?

OO there it is in all of its glory. It has also dressed up a bit since the last time I have seen it. It got a clear cup, whipped cream, and two cherries! OOOO La La! Fancy!

After we chug… literally chug down out shakes we make our way home and start dinner… because who couldn’t eat after downing 450 calories? Well Trent talked me in to trying this sandwich called a Reuben. For me never have eating one, I knew how to make it somehow?! I seriously have no clue how I knew what was on the sandwich and how to make it. While I was making the sandwich Trent was busy on our homemade Mojito’s!
There he is shaking things up for us! These Mojito’s were honestly some of the best drinks I have had in a long time. They tasted so fresh and so summery.. OO I just loved it. Here is the final product!

SO this was my beautiful St. Patricks day. It was delish and I had such a fun day!!!
