My first....

I'm sad to report I got in my first car accident yesterday morning. I'm doing okay and not seriously injured... I was really shaken and emotional about the whole thing. My left side of my body is pretty sore and tight today, but hopefully nothing a little massage won't cure. I don't even want to report the details because it was completely my fault. I'll just say I was rushing to work and between a Jetta and a city garbage truck, the truck will always win. I'm lucky it was early in the morning and there wasn't any other cars on the road, because I was spun into the other lane. I feel lucky about a lot of things right now.... the support of my family and friends, having full insurance coverage, and the nice people I've deal with from Mercury, Enterprise, the auto shop, my co-workers- the list goes on. I feel very lucky.
It's hard to post these, but here goes. I'm sorry my cute little Jetta.... I miss you....

My latest kick

Last night Geoff played WII MarioKart with the boys....

while I stayed home and watched 6 episodes of Sex and the City.

I never really watched Sex and the City, mainly because I never had HBO. A group of my friends are going opening night so in desperation of seeming cool, I'm attempting to watch the last season so I can have an idea of what's going on. There really are some priceless lines in that show, so don't be surprised if I quote one or two on my blog!

Toooo hot!

In attempt to escape our three day heat wave (over 100 degrees!) we took the train up to San Fran on Saturday. The weather was much more bearable up there and once the fog roled in it was actually quite cold. We spent the day walking around the city and taking in the cool ocean breeze.... a welcoming relief from our hot box apartment. That night we met up with some friends and went out to a bar on Polk Street. The pictures below are of us at the Marriot's 39th floor bar. We went up there around sunset just as the fog was rolling in.

Fun weekend

Friday night we had a BBQ at our place. Everyone had a great time, except the neighbors. They were upset because our BBQ smoke went into their place. When they came down to complain I let them know that we never complain when we hear them pee. Just kidding, I didn't say that... but I wanted to! Saturday we spent the day relaxing and getting ready for our friends, Bobby and Leslie's wedding. Bobby and Leslie are both special education teachers at Fremont High School and they are a very sweet couple. We couldn't be happier for them and we feel blessed to have been a part of their special day! Today is Mother's Day and since my mom is in Seattle and Geoff's mom is out of town, we didn't really celebrate. Sending love to all of the mom's out there... you are all fabulous role models for me when it's my turn to be a mom! Enjoy a few pics from the wedding.

The happy couple! The wedding was at a Golf Course in Gilroy. (I straightened my own hair! Impressive, huh!?!)
This one is after a long night dancing!!

Happy Anniversary!

Just a little blog shout-out to my amazing parents who are celebrating their 38th Wedding Anniversary today! Their marriage is a true inspiration to us. The love they have for eachother is so precious... after 38 years they still flirt, hold hands and give eachother sweet kisses.

Our weekend hike

(Yes, he's pretending to be caveman!)
On Sunday Geoff and I went on a hike with our friend Michelle. The weather was nice at our place, but once we drove a bit up Skyline the fog was in thick and it was freezing! The hike was pretty and it was nice to get some exercise outside, but the weather needed to be much nicer to be able to really enjoy the hike. The Poison Oak was out thick on the hike so we joked a bit about how we need to stay clear of it, especially since Geoff is prone to getting it. He even made a comment about it "jumping out" to get him. Well, it sure did! He woke up Monday morning with 3-4 patches of a rash, and since then it's spread to a few more areas! Poor guy! This is probably the 3rd time he's got poison oak and I've somehow stayed clear of it... it just really likes him!
Meanwhile, on the home front, Geoff's doped up on Benadryl so I was in charge of making dinner! Gasp! I know! I think I did okay though... I chose the easiest meal possible of sausages and a salad, and seemed to pull it off. I did ask him about 10 questions through the whole process. "Should I use oil?" "Is it okay if they are a little frozen still?" "Medium or High heat?" "How do I know when they are done?" I have completely lost ALL of my skills while being so spoiled by Geoff's cooking!
So, to my darling boyfriend, thanks for being my chef!

I'm an aunt, kinda!

I had to post this... I'm not sure everyone realizes how bad the Abo's need a new baby around. We all consider JJ and Piper's dog, Lola, our newest addition to the family. She's spoiled like a neice or grandkid would be. It's pathetic, but also kinda cute. It was her birthday last weekend... she even got the You Are Special Today red plate, a family tradition when someone has a birthday, good grades, or just a great day! Happy Birthday my sweet niece!

Free time!

Guess what I was doing today at 4pm.... Sitting at HOME watching OPRAH! Since softball season I haven't been home until around 6 each night. It makes for a really long day since I leave home at 7am. Not to mention it's ALL day on my feet, so by 6pm I'm absolutely done! Yesterday we had our last softball game. The season actually ended a week early because 4 out of 11 of my girls didn't get their grades up high enough. The end of the season is kinda bitter sweet, but probably more sweet than bitter!
I hope everyone has a great weekend! We are off now to celebrate Barbara's (Geoff's mom) birthday!
