Hi Everyone!!

Happy St. Patty's Day!! I hope you are wearing green today so you don't get pinched. Did you have Corn Beef and Cabbage to celebrate? We had my parents over for dinner yesterday and had our corn beef and cabbage plus potatoes and carrots. It was a great way to end a fun and busy weekend.

Friday was our bonus check day! We were so excited to get our checks on Friday and shove them in our savings. The bonus is based on last years end results and are now paid in one lump sum in March. We (company wide) got 8.5% of our salary - which is approximately a whole month income. After I got off at 12:30 Kenny and I met Blair and her daughter Hannah for lunch. Then Blair, Hannah and I went shopping all afternoon starting with Savers and ending at the mall. Blair came over that night and we watch Dan in Real Life again- First time Blair saw it and she really liked it too. Saturday night Kenny and I went out with our friend Beverly from work and her boyfriend Lloyd. They took us to a neat hamburger place near ASU main then we headed over to The Sets which is where we saw some stand up. It was hilarious and good to get out and laugh.

Last weekend was our trip to San Francisco and we had a pretty good time. We rented a convertible, and had to have the heater full blast to stay warm as we cruised around- but we didn't care it was awesome. We really liked Alcatraz, Pier 39 and Fisherman's Warf. We didn't really like China Town since that is where we got our parking ticket! And we didn't have any luck looking up Ronnie, Kenny's half brother. We found his apartment, but we can't be certain that we still lived there. When we got to the airport Sunday morning they had no record of my reservation! We got it straight, but it was a little stressful. Anyway, the trip had some bumps, but for the most part we had a good time.

Also, my 25th b-day just passed. I had a fabulous b-day. My day starting by discovering my dad had decorated my truck. He wrote Happy 25th B-day and put streamers and some ribbons all over it. It was pretty funny. Then I got to work and found my cubicle completely decked out too! Purple balloons, streamers and confetti everywhere. My girlfriends here took me out for lunch at PF Changs- my favorite!! Also, that night Kenny and I went out with my parents to Olive Garden. It was a great day!!

Well, that is about it for us- we would love to hear from you all! Talk to you soon!
