Good Ol' US of A

Visited 28 states (56%)
[I didn't count states that I've been in their airports, namely Texas, Tennessee, and Alabama.]

I see there are some areas of the country that I need to visit. I think it'd be so pretty to visit New England in the autumn. And I think the plantations and horse ranches of the South are calling my name any time of the year. The early summer would probably be the best time to visit Mt. Rushmore, the "Land of 10,000," and the surrounding states. And who doesn't want to visit A-las-ka after seeing The Proposal? I'm not a beach snob and will let the sun kiss my skin in Hawaii. As for the northeastern states, maybe I'll visit you in late summer when you're done raining.

So, who wants to donate to my travel fund? Where do you want to visit?

Entrance to South Carolina. Isn't is so pretty? Best state line entrance I've ever seen. It's the same on the other side of I-95. Picket fence extends on both sides. So quaint and southern.

Draft Jimmer

I really wanted this for Christmas.
But, I guess Santa thinks I haven't been a good girl. Maybe another Christmas.

I look forward to watching Jimmer in the big, bad NBA. Good luck in Sacramento!

Where all the lights are bright...
In downtown Gilbert!
Rebekah and I had a night out on the town.

Mad Skills

I was asked to clean the bathroom of someone's office. (I won't disclose whose.) This is what I saw. (I should've done some closeup shots.) It was like a NYC public bathroom.
I brought some good cleaning tools with me: windex, tile/bath cleaner, magic erasers, Ajax, toilet gel. The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Bath Scrubbers were awesome. I used both. (The Target brand Magic Eraser is really good, too.) The most crucial item I brought were yellow cleaning gloves. If I hadn't been wearing those, I don't know if I would've been able to do the job; it's amazing what you can do if you're not actually touching the grossness.
75 minutes later...and..viola!
I'd rather clean a bathroom than sweep and clean the kitchen floor. What are some household chores you like doing?

Halfway through the week, we had to move over to the larger house. From Wednesday to Saturday, it was just Megan, Benita, and me. Ponytails treated us nicely!

We got a little tired of eating pita chips, cereal, pudding pie, and tortillas, so we went to the local Italian restaurant Dulce de Vita. It was so yummy!
Self-timer. I thought I could run up the stairs and be in position in 10 seconds. Not so. But I was so close. See me in the yellow on the left?
Ponytails had an elevator. Thank you. It was especially helpful with our luggage.

"[They] was just too busy being fabulous...too busy to think about [everyone else]..."

We were itchin' to do some karaoke. So, we hopped in the car and tried to find the local bars. Fishbones pulled through for us. We got to do as many songs as we wanted because we made up half of the place. I think everyone got a kick out of the "sober" kids jam. The bartender gave me my Sprite free of charge. Sweet!

"Baby, baby, baby, oh..."

Benita did a collaboration with the locals.

Megan, Benita, and I flew out to the Outer Banks to spend the week with some of my friends from when I lived in Washington, DC. We made some new friends as well.
We had such a FUN and relaxing time!!
