The wind began to pitch...

So the storm season has started and is in full swing. There are thunderstorms, hail storms, high winds, and my least favorite of all tornadoes!!

They have been popping up around here, none have hit on our side of Amarillo.. yet but you never know!!

Since moving to Texas I have developed an irrational fear of the storms here and tornadoes. Why? I have no clue, but I do know they are worse than anything I encountered back east, and well tornadoes just pop up and have a mind of their own. Not like a hurricane that you can plan for.

In my world when this happens....

I think this...

Always on the go!

Lately we are always on the go. Between work and school though we have managed to get away a little. At the end of Feburary we drove to Albuqurque for a 2 night stay for our anniversary. We got a room with a fireplace, had dinner planned out and even had dessert and champagne delivered to our room Saturday night. On Sunday we headed to the Aquarium and the Zoo. It was a good time. Once we found it we bought tickets and headed on in. We then headed up sandia peak, a large tramway that takes you to the top of a mountain. On one side it's trees, cliffs, and a pretty rocky terrain. Imagine our thoughts when people we taking their skis and snowboards up!! Well once we got up there we learned the otherside of the mountain was full of snow, and ski lifts. It was cold and there was plenty of snow! We walked around the top of the mountain, stopped in the restuarant for an appetizer and a couple of beers, which I might add costs more than dinner... :) Once we left there we grabbed some dinners and crashed at the hotel. On Monday morning we were headed home, but not before a quick stop off at a big mall on our way out of town. (Kevin really enjoyed that trip to the mall!!).

For spring break we made a quick trip back east. It was a whirlwind for sure! We were so busy it wasn't even funny. We were however able to enjoy some seafood (you know that didn't come from red lobster), enjoy some laid back nights with our friends. During the days we visited family, my mom, my stepmom, sister, lil Tony (who I just count as a brother), my stepdad, my cousin and her boyfriend, other aunts, and cousins. Don't worry though we included some of Kev's family too!! We were able to have lunch with his uncle that he hasn't seen in a couple of years! We then headed up the day before we left to ride with his Aunt Kitty and his cousins to see his Grandparents and for some famous spaghetti from Grandma! It was a good visit, as it had been quite some time since we had seen them as well! Kevin was hit with allergies pretty bad, and had a rough trip home! It took a little bit for him to get over it but is finally feeling better!

These days though we are back to work and school. Kevin is working from Tuesdays to Saturday mornings, I'm in school 3-4 days a week and working 1-2 days a week. Sure makes a busy schedule! We are keeping our fingers crossed that Kev's interview on Monday is a success so that he'll be working in town again! So well now know why we haven't posted! Life is busy busy busy.
