Hi Everyone!
How is everyone doing!? We are just fine. Here is our weekend shanangans--
Last Thursday mom and I went to Dottie’s for our weekly cooking class and it was so much fun! They did Father’s Day BBQ ideas and snacks- Stake, garlic mashed potatoes, French bread with garlic spread, homemade ice cream, pop corn and more. It was a lot of fun and I ended up buying Kenny a Cuisinart popcorn popper. It is super cool and Kenny loves to make popcorn as a snack and since microwave popcorn is now on the no no list I thought it would be a good alternative.
Friday afternoon we took the pups (Shelby and Toby) to the vet for their rabies shots. Poor Shelby is so afraid of the vet! Toby doesn’t mind he will visit with anyone. That evening I had an opportunity to meet one of my favorite authors- Debbie Macomber at a book signing. So that was a lot of fun.

Saturday, me and two other girls got together and had a yard sale. It was more fun to hang out than anything and we got rid of a bunch of junk too. Kenny went over and helped his mom and Dave with a few things around their house. We are also doing some home improvements at our house- basically just finally getting to decorate our bedroom. We are painting, got some new curtains, a new bed and ceiling fan. We are doing a tropical/beach theme.
Sunday night we had my parents over for dinner Filet Mignon, garlic mashed potatoes, sautéed mushrooms, corn and garlic bread! After dinner Kenny and I went over to Blair’s new house. Kenny installed one of our old fans in her kids play room and hung a mirror for her.
Well, that is about it for now—talk to you later!!

here is some catch up on us--
Tuesday (05/13) We got invited to the D-backs game for our company suite night. It was so awesome! Good unlimited food, awesome view and it was a great opportunity for us to get to know some of the agents better. Normally these types of events are for underwriters and marketing, but since Kenny just happens to be my husband and works for the company it worked out really good for him. The agents we very excited to get to meet him. He was a social butterfly!
Wednesday- we went to cracker barrel and it was delicious--!!
Friday was my day off and I just used it to clean and run out to the scrapbook store. Since most of the shops have closed down I really have to make my list before I travel out to get supplies.
Thursday night mom and I went to Girls night out at Radiant Church. It was SO awesome. They talked about all the right things we needed to hear. My favorite  John 8:7- I encourage everyone to look it up... always a good reminder. 
Our weekend was pretty awesome! Saturday morning we had softball practice with our church team- Kenny is hitting awesome this season and we are all eager to play in a game. Afterwards we ran around all day Blair. We bumped into The Turley girls at Ross on Saturday. They were just at Joann’s getting fabric for Laura’s wedding dress (how exciting!!). It was nice to chat and catch up with them. That night we went with Blair to get her tattoo… we were supposed to be there to distract her but once that needle starts—it seems like we all got quieter. She did fine thought and ended up with 3 adorable butterflies on her back to represent her little family (her and her 2 kiddos).
Sunday we went to the Gun show at the AZ State Fair Grounds with Dave. It surly was interesting—who knew there were so many types, shapes, colors and styles of guns and “accessories” Kenny signed up for the NRA and we both registered to vote (probably something we should have done long ago).
 05/21/08 was the season finale of American Idol- Blair and I watch of course- no surprise David Cook won- he is so awesome. Blair and I have our tickets for the concert and are super duper excited. We couldn't get Kenny to go with us... he said he didn't want to get mixed up with the teenie bopers. LOL
05/22/08 Mom and I went to our cooking class at dotties-- it was fun to get back to that and spend some girl time together once a week.
Friday 05/23/08 Kenny and I got to go to Andy's (his cousin) high school graduation. His class was huge!! About 535 kids in the class, but they did a very nice job on the ceremony. One of our fellow employees was graduating too! Afterwards we went to Nanette's house for some dessert. It is surprising how fast 'kids' grow up !! It seems like just yesterday he was the 9 year old kid I first met. He will be starting at GCC (glendale community college) next year and we wish him the best!

Saturday Kenny worked on mom's craft closed. her shelf came down so he made her some new ones. Mom and I had a fun time sorting through all the craft stuff.
This past weekend 05/31-06/01 we spend a lot of time at home. Saturday I think I got a bit of the stomach flu or food poisoning... something not so fun- so we stayed home. In the afternoon my mom and her friend Stargret came over and showed us by heritage makers-- it is basically a digital scrapbooking site. It was pretty fun to see all you can do.
Anyway, that is what we have been up to! Haven't heard from anyone in a while--- how is everything out there? Love to hear from you!
Amanda and Kenny
