Catching up!

I started the post over a month ago...sorry it's taken me so long :[

Brad had his friends over to visit! It was fun, we did lots of things and it was nice because they reminded me of when we'd all hang out back home. One of the nights, we went to this restaurant called Big Juds. It's known for their hamburgers, and they're really big hamburgers. Really, they have huge ones. Man Vs Food went to the one in Boise, I'm not sure if he finished it or not. Brandon and Mike both ordered it, I'm not sure if they ordered the double or the triple but needless to say...

They finished half their own, it was impressive. I'd never be able to eat that, I barely finished my own burger haha. While they were here they went with brad, brandon and travis to the ice caves. I opted out. They didn't get any pictures because it was dark, but let me tell you, you will never catch me in an ice cave. Brad told me there were parts where they were sliding on their backs with the ceiling a foot above their faces. Brad said it was a good thing I didn't go haha.

They spray painted tee shirts and they were very proud of them, brandons was hilarious:

They were only here for a couple days, but it was fun!
The fair was here! It was nothing like the Puyallup fair (it was a sad comparison, especially the food options) But Idaho is very proud of it! First, we went to see the horses. I don't like them that much, they're too big. They are beautiful, big animals though! Everytime I would go to pet one, I would hesitate and they knew I was nervous so they would turn their head :[ So I took pictures instead :]

I thought this one had awesome hair-And then the goat...their eyes are weird, brad and I both agree they are kinda crazy looking. Like they are always watching...

Princess...OPRAH...and Spaz. I thought it was hilarious how they named one Oprah! For food we had smoked turkey tasted just like ham!
This next picture, brad wanted me to stand by those HUGE horses with the hairy feet. I was nervous to get close because it could have probably jumped over the bar that it was behind.It was the biggest horse I've ever seen! If you know me very well, you'd know that I do not do well near horses- if the earlier pictures weren't enough of a hint haha.

If I had gotten any closer I think I would have had a panic attack. Don't let the nervous smile fool you. I was afraid it was going to eat my hair so I'm glad it turned it's head!

I'll try and post again soon, I have a lot to catch up on :]

Crafts, Bowling, Pennies, Shirts, Golf, and home made juice!

So, last Saturday it was my mothers birthday!!! I miss her so much, you never realize how much you need your mom until you're expected to not need her anymore. In my case, it was getting married. I still need my mama :[ I call her almost every other time I make dinner. "How do I cook frozen hamburger?" was one of my first phone calls haha. So to show her how much I love and miss her, I made her a fancy watch bracelet :]I love you mom! I miss you and dad so much! I can't wait to come home for christmas! So we live by the train tracks, very close actually. We had just gotten home from getting delicious Millhollow frozen yogurt and we hear the horn coming. All of a sudden, brad leaps from the couch to the other room and runs out the door. I knew instantly what he was doing. He had grabbed a couple pennies, to see if the train would flatten them and how much. The train flattened them like this:
They got pretty flat, it's presents anyone? haha just joking. So that night we decided to have a little date night so we went to this movie theater/bowling alley/arcade called Fat Cats. We didn't have impressive scores, brad won but I got the one and only strike :]!
This ball was only 7 lbs...clearly, you can tell I'm struggling.
The afterwards....
The first was mine, I always get All Lovin No Oven: Cake batter ice cream, chocolate, cookie dough, and whip cream. Brad's was halfway gone before I got to take a picture of his haha. He always gets, Birthday Cake Remix: Cake batter ice cream, brownie, sprinkles and whip cream. They are both delicious, and I refuse to find out how many calories I consume every time we go :]

Guess who likes to golf? well, I like to go to the driving range. Brad got us a big bucket of golf balls and taught me how to use a driver, a number five? and a putter. I am not really sure, they all look the same to me. It was nearly 100 that day, and no clouds so it was hot!

Notice in this picture, how I didn't hit the ball? That happened a lot.Brad was such a good golf teacher, he is very patient and explained everything very well. I even hit one ball past the 150 sign, for real!

As for dinner, a couple that I made that we really liked were:
Chicken Fajitahs!Chicken Milanese with Spaghetti!
Brad said this was the best thing I've made so far. It really was sooo good, he asked for it the next night too haha!

One of the gifts from my parents that we got was a Jack Lallane's Power juicer. We went to the store and bought apples, carrots, oranges, strawberries, bananas, watermelon, lemons, limes, white nectarines, wheat grass, spinach, and mango's. The first time we pretty much did all of them but watermelon, mango's, wheat grass and spinach. It did not taste good, it was so lemony and sour! It tasted like sour lemonade but looked like carrot juice. So we went to the gym and when we got back we put the juice in a blender with yogurt, ice and a banana. It was sooo good!

We like juice at our place haha :]
So another thing we did last week was make our own shirts! We had brandon, travis, chase and his wife, ali come over and we got shirts and spray paint from wal mart. We all did different things with tape and stencils. Brad cut out a horse for his, and I hole punched construction paper and used that as a stencil. And for the back I twisted it up into a little cone and sprayed painted it to make it look tye dye. Brad made another the other day but I'll post it for next weeks blog. he was also very proud of that one.

That was pretty much our week, it was lots of fun :] Missing everyone at home, we love you guys!
