Sorry! I'm not sure what happened to my slide show, but check back and I'll be sure to have pictures uploaded in the next couple hours.

Our Cottonwood, AZ VW Trip

This past weekend, we decided to take a trip w/ about 10 other Volkswagon vehicles up north to Cottonwood, AZ (About 2 hours Northwest of Phoenix). No, sadly - my car was not taken - we ended up taking Wade's GTI, because lets be honest, his car is WAY faster and WAY sexier than my beetle.

We started our morning at about 7 a.m. on Saturday, after a couple drinks at Starbucks, we hit the road around 8 a.m. to meet up with everyone. By 9:40, we were on the road to Cottonwood, AZ. After SEVERAL stops on the way for photo - ops (which we were really annoyed about) we FINALLY hit Prescott. - - Annoyed and tired, Wade, his little brother - Will, Will's girlfriend, Krista and I decided to take our own route to lunch and beyond. And boy was that a good idea...

Question for everyone - Do you know that there are Vineyards in Arizona?? Yep. A whole slew of them! After lunch at Denny's, we headed to Cornville, AZ to try and find our favorite bands (TOOL) winery. Mission Accomplished! IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL!!! Words can't even express the beauty of this place, its like the best kept secret in Arizona. Winery's in the Desert?? Wha??

I've posted some picture in a slide show from our little vacay up north and we are SO excited to venture back up there this summer to do alittle wine tasting and enjoy the greenery.

A perfect place for a wedding, hint hint. :)

Take care!

Everything Happens For A Reason

Good evening, I usually don't get too personal on here - but I really have something on my mind that I need to vent (preferrably before the boyfriend gets home - b/c I'll take it out on him and honestly, its not his fault).

Why must people dwell on the past? I remember when I was dating back when I was young (yes I know I'm still young, but young as in dating young - you know, the first few relationships that I had when I was an actual adult).....well, I remember when this one guy that I had dated for about 8 months broke up with me - I was heart broken. I look back now and laugh b/c I never really even loved him - not like I love my boyfriend - future husband now... (thats what I mean when I was young) But man, I was heart broken! Ouch! I believe he broke up with me b/c I wasn't very unstable financially at the time and I think he really knew I didn't know what I was doing with my life and such. But after he broke up with me - I tried to find ways to accidently run into him - accidently be in his neighborhood - etc.. after about a month, that faded...

My point is this - why, after 5 years, 6 years, 10 years people still hang onto their exes? Whats the point? They are exes for a reason, aren't they?

I'm not saying, for instance, my mom - of course, after 25 years, she won't ever forget my father. But that's a given. No one should ever tell someone like my mother to move on - b/c its just not going to happen and no one should expect that to happen.

After a 2, 3, 4 yr relationship - why would someone still be thinking or trying to "out do" their exes?

Jealously? Envy? Hate? Love???

I'm a firm believer in "Everything happens for a reason" and I suggest that if you are one of these people who is lulling in the past...Move up, Move on...and for God's sake - don't make yourself look like a fool.

Phew - I feel better!
