back 2 school.

well, after this weekend, back to school i go. i have really enjoyed the summer but it's always fun to start a new semester. new classes to explore & i always get that giddy feeling like a little kid. i think i even want to buy a few back 2 school outfits :) my friend sam & i hung out on campus today. it is her 1st semester so i showed her the buildings her classes would be in, the student union, bookstore, student wellness & rec center, etc. & helped her get her student id. it was fun hanging out. i saw where a couple of my classes were too cuz even i get lost ;) we got some caramel fraps after so that was delish. it was fun talking to her because we have a lot in common.

my big girl is starting the 1st grade the following week! im eager to see how she will like the full day since in kinder she only had 1/2 days. she would always seem so tired even after only 2.5 hrs so how is she going to do after 6 hrs? i wonder if she'll prefer hot or cold lunches? just excited for her & hope she has a great year & thoroughly enjoys herself :) she is growing up! she no longer wants a 'character' back pack. she had a my little pony one for kinder. she wants to use my polka dot jansport. no wait, nm i just asked her and she said she wants a princess back pack. lol. chicks = indecisive.

i like that when it is time to go back to school, it is all fall-ish and the leaves start changing colors & falling. & there is that cool, crisp air & smell. nope, not here in vegas. it's still freakin hot as hell. in the 100s. and will continue to be 'summer' for atleast 2 more months. so you can expect to see the chicks in their booty shorts, halters, & heels on campus for a while longer. no worries guys.

i got some of my books today too. makes me wanna cry how much you have to dish out for that. hundreds of $$ kissed goodbye. i saved like $60 on a book buying through amazon though & i signed up for amazon student so i get free 2 day shipping for a year! awesome possum. i got a molecular model kit today too for my organic chem class. the kids and i will have fun making molecules together. :)

well peeps, it's time for me to sleep. it's after midnight. lates.

did ya miss me?

oh em gee. how 2 months can fly by so quickly. and my blog has been so lonelies in the mean time. rest assured, i've kept busy though.

we took a trip to santa monica to play at the beach on may 31st.

we went to salt lake city for 5 days last month and went to lagoon and the zoo.

(girls at lagoon's water park area)

(girls & hubby in the prairie dog burrows)

went to a luau in june

and in between just doing all that there is to enjoy around this city without getting too hot. child's play, chuck e cheese, pump it up, splash pads.

i turned 24 6 days ago. i feel like i'm no longer in my early 20s and am now in the mids. ima big girl now :) i got my very 1st massage on my bday and it was a little bit of heaven. on my bday night, i went to my fav shopping place-town square, and ate at a new restaurant called nu sanctuary with a few of my mommy friends :) this place was super cool & sleek & i enjoyed myself. i got an inflatable husband as a gift & i blew him up at the table & he sat with us. i got giant edible gummy bears too and they are tasty. i also got a free stay at the silverton hotel last friday thanks to @guynsincity and also @jennotjenn who forwarded her win to me. awesome peeps. the kids & i relaxed, played, had fun swimming, & looking at the aquarium. it was a good time!

my summer school classes are coming to an end in 2 days. but i got to prepare myself for fall classes on the 23rd. it's going to be intense. it always is.

i actually have to write a paper, do 2 finals, 2 discussion posts, and a post test. so yeah, i should kinda do that before i get overwhelmed. haha.
