Spring Is in the Air!

Spring is in the air... at least here in Lafayette it is. I'm currently battling a cold but I think it's almost gone. Kristopher is not as lucky and has been dealing with the same symptoms plus cough and fever for the past two days. We went to the doctor yesterday and he got some medicine so hopefully he starts feeling better soon. I hate seeing him so miserable.

By the way... antibiotics are FREE at Food 1 Pharmacy. Who knew? What a way to look out for their customers! We were definitely pleasantly surprised.

Anyway, instead of Spring cleaning I decided to spruce up my blog. If you read my blog through another method (and not at blogger), take a look at http://mishylee.blogspot.com. I've changed up the theme and added a few pages. Let me know what you think!

In the meantime, enjoy the warm weather! I can't wait to see all the flowers blooming and for every day to be in the 70s!! Once Kristopher starts feeling better he wants to start a walking routine in the morning. Early in the morning... before I even wake up for work. Hopefully we can start it, stick to it and begin losing some weight and improving our health. I'll keep you posted!

Relaxing in Las Vegas

So Kristopher and I just got back from a long weekend in Las Vegas/Henderson, NV. Too bad we also came back with colds but hopefully we get over it soon. The main point of our trip was to visit my mom and see the new house now that it's finished and mostly furnished.

Let me tell you, the house is amazing. I had a goal to use all 7 toilets but I only manged to use 5 while I was there. I know I know, try harder. I really don't want to brag about it too much but mom and dad deserve every single inch of that luxurious dream house. They've worked hard all these years to provide for their family and treat us to vacations and other things that they couldn't experience as kids. They deserve this for all their hard work!

We also did a little bit of sight seeing during our visit. I took Kristopher to the Hoover Dam which he thought was awesome. They are in the middle of building a bridge across the dam which should be done in the summer. Maybe on our next visit there it will be done and we can drive across it. We saw one show during our stay, The Fab Four Live. They are an awesome Beatles' tribute band and I definitely enjoyed the show. We also caught two freebie shows on the strip - The Sirens of TI and the Mirage Volcano.

The other big thing we did was EAT. My mom spoils us so much with food. We went to The Palm, Joe's Seafood at Caesar's Palace and a Sushi buffet at Planet Hollywood. We had dessert every single night. It was crazy. So much for that bridesmaid's dress fitting in April. Juuuust kidding Laura.
However, this vacation was not all work and no play. We built a lamp, rebuilt the dining room table, moved the coffee table into the living room and Kristopher got the wireless networks working the way Dad wanted them setup.

As a reward, we ate, we relaxed in hot tubs and slept in wonderful king-sized beds. Yes, our hard work was definitely appreciated. It was so good to feel appreciated for what we had done while we were there. Some people don't realize how important that is but obviously, my mom does. Thanks Mom.

A New Look

Bear with me as I make some changes and updates. I just wanted to change it up a bit...
