Dancing the Night Away!

So Valentine's Day was so amazing! We celebrated it a day early though, since we both worked on Sunday.

Ever since we got married we wanted to try dancing together, but our schedules wouldn't allow it. Needless to say when we got the chance we jumped on it.

We looked everywhere for places to go here in the Sound, and we found one! It was called the Red and White Ball. It was a combination of everything! Swing, Rumba, Cha-Cha, Salsa, thank goodness there was a lesson before the dancing! I have two left feet, so I was grateful that Travis has lots of patients.

We had a blast! We will most definitely be doing that again!

There was a man there that saw us struggle a little bit so he told about this place in Olympia the would teach a beginner's swing class then 3 hours of dancing. We decided to give it a try. I picked it up a lot better than the rumba we learned at the red and white ball.

Sorry if this post is a little jumpy, I am on pain pills because yesterday I had an ovarian cyst burst. I went to the ER early Tuesday morning, not sure of what my extreme pain was. The Doctor ran a bunch of test and did a CAT scan and found A LOT of blood in my lower abdomen from the burst cyct. I am still in a lot of pain and can barely walk, but I am improving.

This is becoming a habit

A lot has happened over the past week! I wish I could’ve posted more, but time doesn’t allow it!

On Saturday we finally went Trail Riding. It was perfect weather too, sunny and semi-warm. So we loaded up the bikes and drove the 45 minutes to Belfair. There were so many people there too; I guess everyone had the same idea we did! We had the fear that it was going to be too crowed and we’d run into people on the trails. Thankfully Travis rode on ahead of me to make sure I didn’t hit anyone or anyone hit me. We only ran into a few other riders and few Quad-riders other than that it was a nice day of riding!

The trails were perfect, just wet enough that we didn’t slide around in the dry clay and dry enough that we didn’t get stuck in the mud. Needless to say after our long day of riding we were soaking wet and muddy and so were the bikes.

This week I have 4 days off! I am so happy, I need the little vacation. But one day was cut short because they called me into work, one of the girls got strep and my supervisor needed to go to the hospital. I can’t leave my crew in a lurch so I went in for a few hours to help out. And on my way home last night I heard a ton of sirens heading to the historic harbor where we live. Anyway I was heading home and the road was blocked off, the cop was setting up road flares when I drove down there. I thought maybe there was a big accident; the roads were pretty wet so I didn’t doubt it at all. But as I went on another side road to go around the mess, I noticed this little bistro was engulfed in flames. This bistro was around for 108 years. We could actually see the flames from the boat when I finally got there. What a terrible night for the owner and her daughters.

I hope everyone has a great Valentine’s Day. I am not sure what we are doing; every time I bring it up Travis always tells me that we’ll talk about it later. He is so sneaky! But I will take lots of pictures and update when it’s all over!

Happy Thursday

It's strange after not blogging for a while, you forget what to blog about!

I need to get the ball rolling again!


So the weather in Washington has been amazing! 54 degrees in February! I love it, and no snow this winter. I was so worried that we were going to get snow because we bought a Corvette but nope!

Although we have gotten unusually warm winter, it still has been rainy and gloomy. But every once in a while we will get a sunny, blue day! Tuesday was one of those days. It was a beautiful day and we planned to go trail riding on dirt bikes on Wednesday.

So we got everything together and we were set our alarms early...and it was pouring Wednesday morning! We just laughed and snuggled back into bed. No really knows what the weather is supposed to do!

But yesterday was such a nice relaxing day, we got up at like 11 and we had breakfast, took the puppy for a walk and snuggled into the couch.

5 o'clock rolled around and I got a call from work, I didn't pick it up hoping they would leave me a message. They called back again at like 5:45, this time I picked it up. It was my supervisor, she asked me where I was and I told her sitting on my couch, she said that was supposed to be there at 5! Let me tell you what, I don't think I have ever moved that fast!

I ended up being an hour late, which means I'll probably get written up...oh well I guess it happens huh?

I hope everyone is doing alright! It feels great to be back!
