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 : )

Meet Lilly

     So my boyfriend & I have always wanted a French bulldog but didn't really want to spend over $1,000 for a dog. We have been looking and since we are moving into our own place thought it was time to expand our family by 1, 1 dog that is. No babies for awhile! ha ha ha.... Well last week we found a cute Boston terrier on Craigslist and they were going to hold him till Saturday. So Saturday comes & we call them & they say oh well we sold him! We were pretty bummed but what do ya do its not like we had and money down on the dog or anything.....
     Well yesterday i was looking on Craigslist & i found the cutest lil doggie. 1/2 Boston 1/2 French bulldog, 7 months old, potty trained, kennel trained, all shots, micro chipped & totally in our price range. I instantly fell in love with her!!! The only problem was she was about 2.5 hours away. Well in my mind i was like well I'm not doing anything tonight ROAD TRIP! SO i text the guy & originally there was someone else suppose to come look at her that night well i said if that falls through let me know, i love her already. Then about 10 min later he asks can you come tonight? So what do i do get a hold of my boyfriend tell him all the details. At first he was like Do you know how far that is? I said about 2.5 hours away lol he was like well if you want her. He had to work late so i instantly get a hold of my WONDERFUL sister (who i work with) and tell her about it & say so wanna go on a road trip?!?!?! She was like man your crazy & YES I'm down! Man i love her : )
     So she gets off work at 5pm and was at my house by 5:30 & we were on the road by 5:45! We had such a good time laughing, joking around & just some good ol catching up. It so nice to be able to do random road trippin. Well this is a pic that she took of me & our new lil gal Lilly. She is SO adorable, i will get some more pics of her and put up. This top pic she looks huge but she is a lil stocky thing : )
     We ended up pulling in my driveway about 10:30 so we really made great time and Lilly did great on the way back. My boyfriend (Andy) got up and was checking her out. I think he likes her a lot just like me. I was sure hoping that he liked her too since he wasn't able to ride along to go get her : )
     We made her a lil blanket bed in our room and she was just busy checking everything out. She ended up trying to jump up on our King size, tall bed. I felt bad for her so i put her in bed with us & she did great! No accidents and slept all night. I woke up this morning to her snorting & grunting/playing with Andy. He got up & let her out. She is so stinking cute! She would just follow us around the house while we were getting ready for work this morning. I cant wait to go home & play with her! Here is a pic of him with her this morning. As he was putting her in the bathroom he says Tell mom bye! Awww.... So we are now Mom & Dad to our lil girl/puppy Lilly ha ha ha... Yeah we are going to be "That" couple that treats their dog like a kid LMAO!!!

Small Town Living

     Well i have lived a few places in my life. I started out as a wee one in the city then mom & dad moved us to a lil itty bitty town called Goosehaven where we lived for quite awhile. Well up until 3rd grade when mom & dad decided that me & sis needed our own rooms so back to the city we went. While living there not even a year or two mom & dad decided to bless us with our lil brother. So back to sharing a room with sis. I lived there until i went off to college & stayed in the dorms in Olathe, KS for about 2 years then moved back home. I was back to sharing a room with sis. Man i missed being on my own so i moved into an apartment complex across town that my parents owned for a few years then sis wanted to spread her wings so we moved into together. That was great, we literally lived off of icy pops for an entire summer with no air conditioning! Then we decided we needed more room moved back across town into a lil & man i mean lil house (so much for more room) but it did have a yard. Then i started dating my now boyfriend of 3 1/2 years. Well he asked me to move in with him & his roomate. So i decided to go ahead, so back across town i moved, where i have been for about 3 years. My sis moved to the real country and is doing fabulous, check her out at
     We have been looking for a house for the 2 of us to start out in and have not found much of anything that has suited our needs. He is kind of a motor head ha ha, he has his toys (i.e. Harley, 4 wheeler, gonna fix up his old bronco & start building his rat rod) so we need at LEAST a 3 car garage. Well needless to say after looking for a lil over a year and zig zagging back & forth across town we have found it and what do ya know its in a small town! Well dont blink or you'll miss it ha ha ha! My BF is from small town so he will be used to it and i have always wished we would have stayed living in good ol Goosehaven. So small town living here we come!
Here is a picture of our cute lil house : ) We have a lot of stuff to do oh like pack for 1 ha ha ha..... We will/hope to be moved in by mid May. We are super excited for this next chapter in our lives : ) Hope your ready for us Silver City Iowa!

This will be a great lil starter house for us. It needs some work & some yard work. But we have a vision and cannot wait for it to slowly come to light. I think this will be so much fun working together on something that we are going to be living in and sharing. Im sure there will be some GREAT times and some times we are going to want to ring each others necks but we are all in and no turning back now. So we are ready to get started. Let's do this! If any of you have any advice or tips on painting, carpeting, flooring or pretty much any advice/tips on new home ownership holla at me! Until my next post..... : )
