About Me

My photo
What's up everyone?!?!?! My birth name is Elizabeth but most of my friends and family call me Liz. I'm from good old Iowa and have lived here all of my life. I am a very outgoing fun loving gal. I'm the type to be up for anything and i LOVE to laugh! My dream is to get my very own hog... not the animal hog but a Harley hog and I can now say that this dream has finally been achieved!!!! There is nothing like the feeling of hitting the pavement with the wind blowin' your hair a mess. You get to see and experience so much. No air condition, no radio, the wind in your hair, watch out for those bugs they can give ya a lil sting when they hit ya at 70mph. Elvis Presley once said Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine! I love that saying... Well stay tuned to hear some of my experiences and stories from the wide open highway! Always remember keep the paint up and the rubber down : )

New Adventure

          Well if you cant guess by this lil clip-art, we have purchased our first house!!!! We are so excited! We take possession on April 25th as long as everything goes according to plans. It needs a little work but once we have it done it will be great! It is in a small town, bout 30 miles from where we live now. We are right in town (if you wanna call it a town LOL) across from the city park, have 1 neighbor & a cornfield on the other side of us. This is a really small town, there is no gas station or stores in town. Just a bar, car wash & a few tiny business. There are 2 slightly bigger towns about 10 miles away that have gas stations & lil stores if ya need something quick. We will get used to it pretty quick i think. We have always wanted to live in a smaller town so when we saw the house & saw that it had a lot of what we wanted with some potential we had to jump on it.
         The house has 2 bedrooms upstairs with 2 bathrooms. Downstairs is a finished basement with a non-conforming bedroom, utility room & half bath. There is a 1 car attached garage (mine lol ) then up behind the house there is a 20x30 3 car garage. It has been so hard to find something with the garage space that we need & a decent house for our price range.  There is also a decent sized yard that is fenced in the back yard.
       One bedroom upstairs is considered the Master with the attached bath. Then the living room with kind of an open plan into the dinning room & Kitchen. The kitchen needs an update but we are going to sand down/re-paint the cupboards for now & do some fer mica counter tops for now to make it look nice. The over all house needs re-painted through out.
       And man do we LOVE Craigslist!!! We got a couch & over sized chair, that was only 3 months old for a good price. Last night we went & looked at some appliances and they were great. Stainless steel & only 3 years old. We got a steal of a deal on those (Fridge, Stove, Dishwasher & microwave). We will pick those up this weekend.
      We are just super excited to get in a repaint & do some fixing up projects to make it our home sweet home. Oh and we are going to be getting a doggie!!!!! I cannot wait till we get to get a lil fur-ball! If anyone has any painting or home improvement ideas let me know : ) I will pry be posting some of our projects so you all can see what we are doing : ) Until then catch ya later! :  )

Skiing in Colorado

     Well this year we got the chance to go to Colorado to go skiing. Every year my dad with some family & his friend with some of his family go. Well this year Andy & I went. It was so fun. There ended up being about 20 of us that went. From our family it was Dad, Hannah (sister), Brittany (cousin), Molly (cousin), Matt (cousin) and then a couple that we are good friends with, Jeremy & Nichole. It was cool because my cousin Molly from South Dakota came & then my cousin Matt from Indiana flew in. Here are some pictures from the trip:

This is the first day us girls took a "break" with a few drinks : )

Here is a view of the mountains : ) 

 Here is my Dad & I on a ski lift in Beaver Creek.

 Here is my friend Nichole & I on the ski lift. 

 Here is Andy & I on the lift.

 Here is Andy & I before we go down the mountain. Photo op! LOL

This was the 3rd day of skiing at Beaver Creek. Nichole & I were pooped so we decided to call it a day & wait for the guys. There was a guy playing acoustic guitar outside by the fire so we just relaxed and waited.

This was in Breckenridge Thurs night in one of the little tourist shops. They had all kinds of hats so i told Andy we should take a picture in one of these hats & he was like NO way! I said oh come on it will be funny, so i turned around & this is the hat he had picked LOL : ) 

Well we had a great time & no one was hurt. Can't wait till next year : )


   Here is a little weight loss funny for ya.... After i got back from vacation i felt like the invisible man was playing a trick on me lol. But good news was i was only up 3 pounds & i weighed back in on Sat & i have already lost it. My total loss so far is 11 Lbs...  Our final weigh in is April 7th so i am trying to hit it hard this month : )
