Isn't it Ironic.. Don't you think?

So I'm sure everyone has heard of the whole Cash for Clunkers thing, right? Well it's been a conversation topic of many the past week. Anthony has even looked up my car to see what I would qualify for and how much a new car would cost me. It sounds like a great idea get a new car with free money. Last night we had another conversation about it and he was trying to convince me to just do it. My whole thing is I don't want to buy a new car until mine is done-zo. I don't want a car payment and definitely don't want to have to pay for full coverage! I rather travel and do fun stuff with that money. Who cares what kind of car you drive? I don't. I have had the same car since highschool. It's been a trusty companion on many adventures. Yes, it's given me some grief but what car hasn't? Plus I have been lucky to have car mechanics in my life.

This morning I drove to work. My car started just fine. Ready to take me to my destination.

This afternoon at work I had to go do some office errands. Someone offered to go but i said no that i would do it. I love to get out of the office when I can. I walk over to big blue as I like to call her, keys in my hand, open the door and slide in. Key goes into ignition. Turn..Turn...Turn.. Nothing. No roar from the engine, no stereo blasting me with music... nothing. You have got to be kidding me!? Why won't you start!? And all I could think about was that I should have turned my car in last night for the cash for clunkers deal.



you know..

The past couple of weeks have been really busy. I haven't much felt like updating either. I don't know why, just haven't. When I come home from work I don't really feel like being on my computer because I'm staring at one for 8 hours a day. So it's tough for me to go home and get stuff done like updating, uploading pictures, etc.

My summer thus far though has been good though.

I went up to Reno the 2nd weekend in July for a nice little visit with some family and more VIP clubbin' :)

The 3rd weekend in July was really fun. I went down to Roseville to meet up with Erica and her friend Nicole. We hung out and had lots of fun and the next morning we woke up early and drove to San Francisco for the AIDS Walk. ( I will get a post up soon dedicated to it with pictures)

Last weekend I went to the NHRA races with my family. It's a annual thing that we have been doing for the past 4 years. I think this was my last year of going though for many reasons. It's fun to see all the funny cars and drags but why does the beer have to cost $8 dollars+... ?

The 2nd weekend in August, Brittney and I are going to Redwood City for the weekend to visit with our great grandmother and cousins. I'm excited to see them. It's been a long time.

And of course the next week in August is the Nevada County Fair. I go everyday. :) I eat my way through it. It's the main reason for going now. I don't go on rides anymore. I just like to go and see people and eat.

The weekend before we leave for Florida is Erica's birthday. So i'm sure lot's of fun parties are to be had. yay!

August 24th Erica and I leave for Florida. :)

Sept 4th=Rib Fest! Another annual event of the summer. It's in Reno and it's a big party.

Sept 12th= Blink 182 Concert! YAY!


Sept 20th= Triathlon. I'm nervous.

So I'm pretty booked up until Fall.

Fair Entries

I'm going to enter some photos into the Nevada County Fair again. Here are the ones I'm thinking about doing.. what do you think?

This one I'm going to enter into the "Nevada County Scenes" category

Which one out of the those? I like the close up because you can really see just how big and colorful it is. But I like the far away version too because it shows the surround areas and gives a bit more to look at. 

I'm also thinking about doing either a animal entry category or a plant. Here are some of the ideas I have: 


4th of July Weekend

My weekend.. here are a few things to describe it:

Old friends, ex boyfriends, honeymoon (the beer), staying up too late, van sleeping, parades, bbqs, homemade ice cream sandwiches, naps, fireworks, family, swimming, sun burning, pizza eating, cleaning, and relaxing. My weekend was pretty busy but super fun. :) I sure am tired today...

My weekend was what summer is all about. I can't wait for more fun times during this 2009.
