31st-Mar-2008 10:15 pm - It's been 11 weeks
It's been 11 weeks since I last updated this, a lot has happened! I spent 12 in Arizona with Mike in the month of January. It was fantastic, got to see some new places and some old favorites. We left on my 23rd birthday and Mike took me out to a really nice restaurant that night called The White Chocolate Grille in Phoenix. We flew Southwest and I got to visit the cockpit of the planes twice and got my picture taken a few times! We got to see Tombstone and had a shit load of fun there! We are both hooked on Arizona beer now, too bad we can't find it around here so far! We went to the Four Peaks Brewery and the Oak Creek Brewery. I drank some Shiner Boch too which is Texas beer. We went to Jerome where we watched a playoff game for the Patriots and made friends with the locals. Got to meet up with a friend who lives in Scottsdale, he took us out to The Yard House and to Dave and Busters. Mike managed to find the hottest hot sauce in the world at Goldfield Ghost Town.

AND we had a BRAND NEW Altima for our rental car and it kicked ASS!!!!!!!!

Overall, it was a really fun, really great vacation. I am looking forward to the next trip out there, because there are new areas we would like to see. I am just not sure when it will be. But we are going to Florida April 18th with my brother and his girlfriend because he bought some property down there. We are flying Southwest into Tampa and driving to Port Charlotte. I am looking forward to the getaway before final exams. We are going to hit a lot of beaches on the Gulf of Mexico and just relax. We are going April 18-22 because I have a super long weekend from UMass. Going to head somewhere in August as well. It will be either California or Texas, or maybe a bit of both. We have a friend who is living in Cali we want to visit, he is working at Mammoth. That way we can also drive the coast again and visit Napa again. The Bombardier ATV meeting is rumored to be in Dallas, Texas this year...And I know my brother and I want to go back, plus Mike would love Austin and he wants to see a dealer meeting before the business sells.

Classes are going very well this semester, much less stressful than last semester. I am going to take Finance online this summer to get it out of the way. It only lasts 6 weeks, until July 10. Then I should only have 2 semesters left, to graduate in the Spring of 2009 with my Bachelors degree!! I am pumped and ready to be done, planning to have a big party to celebrate! I already know what classes I am taking the rest of my time at UMass. My brother is trying to convince me to get my Masters but we'll see. Anyway that's all for now...time to go relax.

So tonight Mike and I are staying at a Days Inn by Bradley because of the snow...then our plane should be leaving at 6:30 a.m. to Chicago Midway, and then to Phoenix! My 23rd birthday is tomorrow which is exciting, and I should get to have my birthday on the plane. We are flying Southwest which I am also excited about. I cannot believe that tomorrow I will be in Arizona!!! It's been far too long, just have to escape the snow.

It's been 8 weeks since I last updated lol. What can I say, I had a really busy/crazy/stressful semester but everything turned out ok. I got the grades i wanted for the most part, got through financial accounting at umass. Now I can move on with my classes! Very excited about that.... Christmas was great, I got a GPS for my car which I am very excited about. Mike and I are leaving for Arizona a week from Monday, my birthday, for 12 days.

We went up to VT for new years and had an awesome time. Time to go head to his house but I should be updating this again before we leave for AZ.

We got all of our hotels booked for Arizona in January!! I'm pretty excited about all of them. The Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort in Phoenix, Hampton Inn in Tucson, Hampton Inn in Prescott, Embassy Suites in Flagstaff, and for the last night another Hampton Inn in Chandler. 3 of the hotels have a whirlpool/jacuzzi in the rooms and we got them all for cheap rates. I joined Hilton Honors Program so I can earn points. We are going January 14-25.

I am all done with the semester after December 18th. Can't wait...hope I can get through my Financial Accounting class though!
20th-Sep-2007 09:05 am - quick update
Just thought I would update this quickly. I finally got my camera back from being repaired so I have been putting my pictures from Foxwoods and California on my computer. They should all be up soon. Back in classes...they are all ok I just hate my accounting class!!!! I'm finally getting used to being back in school again, summer break was nice! It definitely was not the summer break I was expecting. I went to Foxwoods, California, Hampton Beach, St. Albans and Burlington, saw Papa Roach, Hinder, and Buckcherry in concert, and had some kick ass times! I met Mike and we went on our first date the day after my last final exam so that was a great start to the summer! I am finally with someone who makes me happy and treats me right. We went to some kick ass parties too! I even got my room clean this summer haha! But now I am back in classes....but it looks like I will be going to Arizona this January which is sweet. As long as everything works out right, we should be going on my birthday. Well that's it for now, hopefully I will update again sooner.
23rd-Aug-2007 06:50 pm - California and St. Albans
I am home from California and it was amazing!! We went to Berkeley, all around San Francisco, San Jose, Napa Valley, and Yosemite. We drove up the California coast on Highway 1, went to a really awesome Air Museum and the Winchester Mystery House. We went to 9 different wineries in Napa Valley and brought back 10 bottles of wine. The weather was beautiful every day, I did not see a single cloud the entire time we were out there. Lots of pictures were taken, I will be putting them on my computer soon.

This weekend is St. Albans and I am wicked excited. The concert is Sunday night, can't wait for that. I also ordered an air intake for my car which is going to be wicked sweet but it's not coming in until next week. Well hopefully I will update this again before classes start.

1st-Aug-2007 10:33 am - It's August...
...and I haven't updated in awhile. I'm going to California with Mike a week from Thursday which I am wicked excited about. We have our flights, hotels, and rental car all set. Staying in Berkeley, South San Francisco (city is too expensive), Napa Valley, and Yosemite!!! We'll be doing a lot of driving but it's going to be fun. I am really looking forward to driving on the Pacific Coast Highway. I plan on taking a lot of pictures and I'm sure I will have a lot to update about when I get back. Other than that...just trying to enjoy summer, I cannot believe it is August already. Went to Hampton Beach a couple of weekends ago, had a BBQ in at my brothers house last weekend, been going to the gym, etc...

We are also going to Foxwoods this weekend which is gonna be awesome!

4th-May-2007 03:11 pm - ...Arizona...
It looks like I will FINALLY be going to Arizona this year, the last week of June. My Dad and I will be flying out of Bradley on Southwest and my brothers will be flying out of Burlington and meeting us out there. I am WICKED excited, I asked for the time off from work. My Mom was going to go as well, but she is going to go on the next one. As we are going out to look at property and such, we should/will be making more than one trip. Hopefully both of my brothers will be going, as that would be awesome. I booked the flights for my Dad and I today, I saw an Internet Special on southwest.com. Now we have to find a nice place to stay, most likely in Scottsdale. We have a family friend who lives in Scottsdale as well, so hopefully we can meet up with him. My Dad wants to look at Scottsdale, Fountain Hills, Tucson, and I am sure we will go up north for a day. Hopefully it all works out, as I have not been to Arizona for quite some time. We have an early morning flight on Southwest, and we get into Phoenix at 10:15 a.m their time.
