Hot Air Balloon Ride

This past Saturday, Darnell and I went on a hot air balloon ride. I can't believe I went up in a balloon! It was sooo much fun!! I've never experienced anything like that before. I had received a GC from my friend, Leah, for my 30th Birthday last year.(Leah, you so ROCK!) So I called the guy to schedule a flight for last fall. But because of the weather, that flight had to be rescheduled a couple of times. So with a little sadness (cause I really wanted to see all the colors of Fall), I decided to wait until this spring to try again. I had a date set again for this past Saturday. And YAY! I finally was able to take the flight. And what a awesome flight it was. The company that did the flight was Flying In Harmony. The pilot's name was Nick White. What a super nice guy. Everything about the morning, from the crew, the pilot, the exceptional great weather just made the whole experience perfect. And being up in the air, it was just so completely peaceful and calm. I will truly never forget that day.

Some of the things I saw while in flight were deer running in the fields below, a turkey fling up into the trees from the ground, and the cows running for their lives because there's a funny object in the air making noise. LOL (the noise part was the the thingy that shots fire up into the balloon)

Check out some of the photos that were taken that morning.

Nick even ended up using on of the photos on his website. How cool is THAT!!

Fav quote

Recently, I read a blog talking about our favorite quotes. I thought about it and just couldn't think of any at that time that really stuck out. But tonight, while watching one of my favorite movies Hitch, did I hear that quote.....that perfect little phrase.....that I found my favorite quote.

Will Smith said it perfectly....

Never lie, steal, cheat or drink.
But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love.
If you must steal, steal away from bad company.
If you must cheat, cheat death.
And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.

a great read

There are a few different blogs I try to read everyday. Most of them are my fav scrapbookers from CreatingKeepsakes mag, and I read Ali Edwards'blog today and she had a post that really made me think. Here is the post. I think you'll like it.

Hot Air Balloon Ride

I can’t believe I totally forgot to tell y'all this. (so much on my mind) But I’m going up on a hot air balloon ride the morning of the 23rd. I was supposed to do this last fall. But the 2 dates I had scheduled, we had weather conflicts. So I’m hoping the weather will cooperate for this date and I can finally do the ride. I’m so excited about it. I’ve always wanted to do this. Just think of some of the pictures I can get from up there. We will probably go out over by the Holy Hill area. That would be so sweet if I can get a good shot of the HH church. It would have the best if I could have done this in the fall – with the colors and all. That would have been so pretty. But this time of year will be fun too.

Birthday dinner

Here I thought I was going to be all alone tonight for my BD. I get to my apartment, open the door and turn on the light, then I hear "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU....". It was my parents and Darnell. I couldn't believe it. This made me sooo happy to see my family on my Birthday. What an awesome surprise. We ended up having dinner at Uno's on the east side of Madison. We had very yummy pizza. I just LOVE their pizza. Then we all had to say good-bye. Darnell had to work 3rd tonight so they all had to get back to West Bend. I was sad to see them go, but so happy that they came and surprised me for my Birthday. I love my family. They ROCK!!
Your cel phone says HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

It's my B-B-B-Birthday!!

Happy Birthday to ME! Happy Birthday to ME! Happy Birthday toooo ME! Happy Birthday to ME!

I'm 31 today and LOVING it! It's funny. I had a problem with 24....and 25....and 26.....and basically with everyone since 24. But today, I just feel GREAT about my Birthday. I don't know why. I would think I shouldn't b/c of my current living situation and with everything that's going on in our life right now. Life's to short, I just need to make it grand and not worry about the small stuff. There are just some things in life that I cannot control.

So I hope every one's day is GRAND today! Make it a good day!
