There goes Garet - I almost missed him! There was about 300 people running (or at least that's what someone told me).

Garet has been busy with work - he has to do school nights to recruit kids. They had scooters to let the kids play with to keep them entertained. Garet and I had to try them out first...
Yep, they work great!
We really don't have too much planned this weekend either. I can't wait! So, when Garet has to work late, if I don't have anything else to do I play around on Photoshop. Here is some pictures I have recently "played" with.

I am so glad tomorrow is Friday!! I have been battling a cold this week, so the work day has felt like it is dragging on. I have a cough with this cold - and let me just tell you... it really freaks out my dog. As you know, Suzi is a little crazy :) She really gets weird when people cough. I don't know why, and I don't know what started it, but when someone coughs she will run to Garet (or me if Garet isn't around) and sit behind us. Then she will refuse to go near that person. So, when it is me that's coughing she is Garet's shadow! If Garet isn't home (like tonight) she will sit in the furthest part of the house. Right now she is in our bathroom. If I really get worked up coughing, she will come slowly walking up to me and give me a lick then slowly walk away.
Weird I tell ya!

Just let me reminisce for a moment...
I don't even know what the heck my parents were thinking as they dropped us off at the airport! :) We had about 5 enormous duffel bags (seriously - they looked like body bags!), we ate breakfast and then were on our way to the Caribbean! When we got to the airport, they immediately had you shots, then it was a mad house to try and get all of our duffels together and into a taxi! We got to Charlotte Amalie in St. Thomas and had to take a ferry to St. John. This was the ferry:
Oh, did I mention that I had NEVER been to the Caribbean before?? Yep my first time going was to live for a year. Good times... so carefree! Here we are celebrating a month of living on the island:
I swear I could look at these pictures all day! We woke up at 4:30 in the morning to hike Ram's Head and catch the sun coming up... it was so beautiful and peaceful!
One of our favorite beaches - Francis Bay

Garet and I pretty much celebrated yesterday (since my bday is on a Monday - blah!) Garet made it really special. We first hung out with some friends at their pool on Saturday, then that night we went to the rodeo!!! I didn't take any pictures, but it was a lot of fun! They even had one of those mechanical bulls that a lot of the kids got on. It was hysterical!
Yesterday I woke up to a breakfast of cinnamon buns and sausage. Garet gave me my presents too. After church we went and saw the movie Julie & Julia. It was really cute! Garet even cooked us dinner! What a treat!
I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband!! My parents gave me a call early this morning and sang Happy Birthday to me! It was great! I am going to get to see them in less than a month now!! I am SOOO excited!! It's been too long :)

After church we had lunch with some friends, then went back to the house for a bit. I feel asleep?! (I never take naps!!) Then we went out to Bridgestreet. It is so nice out there! It is like an open mall - and there are people that sing and there is one of those water things that kids play in... there are holes in the ground and water sprouts up, and little kids run all through it! It is very entertaining! We had dinner out there too. It was a perfect day to be outside!
After we got home, we watched Marley & Me... oh man that is a sad movie! I read the book and just KNEW I would cry. I didn't even want to watch the movie because I didn't want to cry. But I did, and I did cry. So sad. It made me want to give Suzi a big ole hug!
Monday, I worked and Garet and his mom hung out. They picked me up from work that night and we went to a banquet for Garet's job. There is a boy scout that saved another boys life, and he was being recognized. How awesome!
Tuesday morning Garet's mom flew back - and things are getting back to normal in the Beane household.
This will be a busy week for us though. Between my late night meetings and G's and then another busy weekend coming up, I don't know when we will rest :)
