Is it a bad sign when an hour of weeding my yard makes my quads so sore I can barely walk the next day? Just wondering...

Have you heard??

Mervyn's filed for bankruptcy. But why is this so noteworthy? I found out today that my beloved Arrowhead Mall, which is only 2 miles from my front door, is moving its current Forever 21 store into the newly-abandoned TWO-STORY Mervyn's department store building! Think 83,000 square feet of pure Forever 21 goodness! One of the largest Forever 21's in the country!! I've never been so happy for a store to file bankruptcy. Thank you Mervyn's!

Truly Never a Dull Moment

Brett and I are so blessed that we are able to do so many fun things and have so many fun friends to do them with. My husband knows there is nothing I love more than hanging with friends, or doing something fun and out of the ordinary. Lucky for me, he tries to make both happen as much as possible! Here's what we've been up to lately...

A few weeks ago we made our first visit to The Wildlife World Zoo, which is just a few minutes away from our house. This zoo is much smaller than the downtown Phoenix Zoo, so you are able to get alot closer to the animals. We had a blast and loved getting SLOBBERED by the Giraffes.

If you haven't heard the NBA All-Star Game is in Phoenix this year, and we were lucky enough to get tickets to the NBA Jam Session. We met my parents there and had fun walking around all the events, and even participated a little. We didn't hang around to meet any players or get any autographs, but I did manage a little one-on-one with a fake Steve Nash, and Brett received a "players entrance!"My Dad and I compete in a shoot-out.With my parents and the whole Suns team.

Brett has really gotten into rock climbing lately, and the other day we were able to go with some friends to a local Rock Gym. We got a great workout and had a lot of fun.
P.S. No, it is not snowing inside. Apparently the camera picked up all the chalk that was floating around in the air. I had no idea we were breathing in that much, but now I'm a little grossed out! (FYI, you put chalk on your hands to keep them dry for a better grip.)Climbing inside the Bouldering Cave.What's a trip to the rock gym without a trip down the slide at the end?!

And the real thing! I don't participate in this. This is a "boys only" thing, as far as I'm concerned. I'm content staying at the Rock Gym where I don't get bloody knees or bee stings! :)

What a "SUPER" Weekend!

This truly was a super weekend! On Saturday, Brett and I were able to attend the Broadway production of The Lion King, since it is in town right now. Anyone who knows me, knows I HEART Broadway plays!!! Our friends John and Mandy came with us, and we had a great night on the town, hitting P.F. Chang's before hand. The show was awesome, and the costumes were absolutely amazing. We had a blast and were so lucky to be able to go. I was also ECSTATIC to find out that within the next 6 months, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Cats, Rent, and Wicked are all coming to town! I'm not a very big fan of Rent, and I've already seen Cats once, and Wicked twice, but I might have to see if I can convince Brett to let me go to at least one of the upcoming shows.

Then, of course...THE SUPER BOWL!! We had a great time, despite the not-so-fun ending. The Cards played an awesome game, and I was glad that it ended up being such a close game, although I wish it ended a little differently! After the game was over and things settled down, I realized I was so into the game I didn't take ANY pics, and since this was definitely an event that needed to be documented, we took these.

In one of the pics we took my shirt got all bunched up and I totally looked pregnant, so for some reason we thought it would be funny to take some REAL pregnant looking pics. I think Brett enjoyed this a little too much!
Notice the size of my belly compared to my waist. I better not EVER get this big. I look like I'm about to deliver a litter!
