A few pics

My husband downloaded all the pictures we took on his laptop, so I don't have many right now, but I thought I would give you a little sample of my experience. So here's the story: Mike's friend Sharif invited us about a year and half ago to go on a hunt in South Africa with he and his wife. We thought... sure, a year and a half is forever away. Well it came, and it came fast. I couldn't believe I was actually getting on a plane to go half way across the world to HUNT! The plan was that the first week was for the guys to go hunting and then we were flying to Cape Town for a week for some rest and relaxation. To my surprise, the favorite part of my trip was the first week! We would wake up in the morning, put on our camo and set out to find animals. It was so surreal. The landscape looked like home, but with cactus and then out of nowhere, we'd see zebra, wildabeasts, warthogs, monkeys, kudu, and on and on. It was truly amazing. Now for the non-hunters out there... sorry. The next pic is the Kudu Mike shot after we sat on a small fold up stool for 2 hours saying nothing at all and not moving. They are such a pretty animal.

This is a picture with the owner and our private hunting guides. We stayed at their lodge in the middle of nowhere and they were such nice people.

This is a picture in Cape Town. We took a cable car up to Table Mountain. The views were amazing!

I'll try to put a slideshow together today with a lot more pics (if I can figure it out).

I'm baaaaaaccccck!

Hey everyone! I just thought I'd do a quick post to say hello! I'm finally back from South Africa. We've been gone for 17 days! It was an amazing trip and I'll try to post some pics tomorrow. We figured out that we were traveling for a straight 36 hours to get home. It was CRAZY! Anyway, I can't wait to get back to blogging... I've missed it! :)

I need your help...

I need a really good book to read on an upcoming (17 hr) flight I'll be taking. Yes, I've already read the Twilight Series, but I'd love something nice and juicy like that. It has to capture my attention from the first chapter... Anyone, anyone........ Buhler? :)

How Sad

I was so dissapointed last night that Adam Corolla and Julianne Hough got voted off Dancing With The Stars. I personally think he made the show. I about fell off the couch when he said that the costume people dressed him like a silent porn star! Yeah he sucks at dancing, but he was so funny! And I love Julianne! Oh well, just thought I'd give a shout out... The show won't be the same without them. Hopefully Cheryl will get voted off soon. She bugs the crap out of me!

Our Song

Misty did a tag asking what your song is with your significant other, which, I guess is quite fitting today (see next post). So, I would have to say "The Dance" by Garth Brooks. Probably not so much anymore, but when we first met, this song was the shizz!

Happy Anniversary to Me!

Yesterday was my 15 year anniversary. So Crazy! I can' t believe it's been that long! I have to say that my husband, Mike is really great! I think I like him more now than when I married him... and that's saying something! Love ya babe! So for the big "year" we are taking a trip to South Africa. I don't want to say when, but if anyone has been there, feel free to leave us some tips on places to go or things to do! We are going to Port Elizabeth, Cape Town and Johannesburg.

And if you were wondering -- Yes we did get married on April Fools Day. My son said yesterday when he found that out.... So mom does that mean your marriage was a ----- JOKE? We thought it was pretty funny! It actually just turned out to be the best day for everyone's schedules. And the good thing is... we never forget it! :)
