Sleeping on the Floor, No More!

I am happy to announce that we are no longer sleeping on the floor! You can all stop worrying about the scorpions attacking us in our sleep, I know it was keeping you up at night!

We ordered a bedroom suite back at the end of may so that it would arrive here by the middle/end of June. We kept getting the run around from the company and after over 6 weeks of not receiving our order we had to cancel... We were back to step one! Luckily we found a great discount furniture store here in Glendale and were able to get a fantastic deal on an even better set!

We still need to do some decorating but Im just happy to not be sleeping on the floor and living out of suit cases!!

Not much going on here!

Well we have been here over a month now and are pretty much settled into the house! After a very long delay, we have a bedroom suite being delivered on Saturday and I seriously can't wait.
We have been sleeping on the floor (on a mattress of course) since we have moved in and with our nice friends the scorpions rapant around here...well Im sure you can see why I am excited! Yes I will still check underneath the covers and my pillow every night but atleast I wont be on the floor!!

Colby has discovered that there is a serious lack of home improvement projects for him to do and isnt quite sure what to do with all of his spare time! Dont worry, Im working on finding some for him! :) Work is going great for him and he has discovered a new talent of grilling. He has been creating some delicious dinners for us the past couple of weeks!

We have been having lots of "monsoons" they arent called thunderstorms around here and with the crazy wind and dust clouds I guess I can understand why! A couple weeks a go we had a crazy huge dust cloud called a haboob blanket the entire PHX valley (which is massive by the way) It was I think 70 miles wide and tall enough to cover the skyscrapers! Tonight we had another one! These are supposedly a very rare occurence so I guess we should be considered lucky to have witnessed two of them.. I went out to get pictures of this one.

Isnt that crazy??
This is the grand canal that runs across the street from us. It waters all of the crops throughout the west valley. I believe we also have it to thank for the many critters we have found by the house!

Speaking of animals...
I found this baby lizard the other day, I have never seen one so small!! Isnt it cute! I wanted to keep him but decided to let him go so he might actually have a chance to live!

I have been busy trying to keep up with house chores and working. I am currently temping at Conair (hairdryers/straigheners) for the week and working from home doing back end processing for the insurance company my mom works for. So I am staying pretty busy!

The dogs are starting to like it out here, as long as I take them across the street to the park (aka GRASS). Krone is protesting the rocks in the backyard and will only go if I take him across the street, I honestly dont blame him. Kazzi of course could care less...

We are trying to go out and explore the area, but its hard to be motivated to go outside when its 110....
I cant wait for the fall when we can enjoy the weather! We did go out one evening so I could take some pictures of the flower fields and saguaros..

Anyways, now you are up to date and informed of our lives!

Fourth of July Fun!

My family was able to come down for a couple days and celebrate 4th of July! Since they have to leave on the actual fourth, I tried to find stuff to do for Sunday night.
We drove out to Lake Pleasant, about a45 minute drive, to watch the fireworks there! This was Colby & I's first time out there but I know we will definitely be back! It was gorgeous! They had some beaches, nice grass, and lots of boats and people to watch!
When we got there it was really windy and looked like a storm was coming. We were worried they were going to cancel the fireworks but around 730 the winds calmed down and the temperature dropped to the low 90s! It was so nice out! Around 8 we noticed storm clouds surrounding us and lighting in the distance! The lightning show was just as cool as the fireworks! Anyways, it started to sprinkle, then it would stop. So they started the fireworks about 30 minutes early! It was so cool to see the fireworks with the lightning behind it! At the very end of the fireworks show it started pouring down rain! We attempted to run back to the truck like everyone else, but were drenched by the time we got there!
Never thought I would have to worry about rain on the fourth of july here!!
Back in Las Vegas they had flash flooding, high winds and power outages so I guess we lucked out here!

Here are a couple pictures from our adventure!!
