New Shelf

I have other photos to post but I thought I'd update you all on current events since I think this was pretty funny. It has been kind of a very long day!! My tooth pain started Saturday night but only got so bad that it was making lose sleep last night. I already had a dentist appointment scheduled this morning but he sent me to a specialist. So I pretty much spent all day today between dentist offices, my realtor's office and grocery stores! Literally 13 hours of this crap! So I wanted this shelf and decided to buy it since I was crabby and had already spent a ton on my mouth, why not a bit more for me? The instructions were totally worth it alone! I laughed so hard!!!! They were 2 pages front and back of just pictures. No written instructions at all and the pictures were pretty vague. I feel for those that struggle without specific instructions. This may have been difficult. Which made me feel kind of smart and also made me think of how thankful I was I did woodworking in 4H with Grandpa Lewis's help. ;) The most hilarious part was the ONLY written portion of the instructions which were found next to the picture of the little tube of wood glue that came with the set. Please enjoy this as much as I did!! (Chrissy I know you will!!!)

Hahahahahaha!!!! C'mon, that's pretty funny!!!

These are the only left over parts and I even understand what they were suggesting I use them for but I found them unnecessary. I think that's pretty good!
Finished product. I like it even though it's kind of goofy and it totally matches the coffee and end tables my friend Eric gave me. Those three pieces of furniture are currently the only furniture in the living room so I better like them! Haha!

Hope everyone is having a great week! More posts to come!

Concert Weekend

Russ, my coworker and I have become concert buddies. Saturday we went to Big Gig which had tons of great bands. Smashing Pumpkins headlined and they were amazing, of course! The other bands were Darling Thieves (which used to be I Hate Kate but Kate sued them and they had to change it), Anberlin, Tickle Me Pink, Flobots and Chevelle which were awesome! It was a beautiful day, perfect for an outdoor concert until the sun went down. Then we froze but we still had a blast! Sunday was Zac Brown Band and they were AMAZING! I'll post photos from that tomorrow. Have a great week everyone!!! Can't wait to see you all this weekend!!!!!!!!

Waiting for the bands to start.

Green Day

I've just about caught you guys up to speed! For those of you that know about what's been going on with Cort, I finally got him and all of his stuff out of my house for good and he said he deleted my phone number. Finally!! I only broke up with him 3 months ago! No rush! So the plan is to get all my stuff out of the Bailey house and into one place in the next week or two. Then life can finally truly move forward! On August 28 I went to see Green Day and AFI with my concert buddy and coworker Russ. We like a lot of the same music so we decided to go to as many concerts as we can. We have two planned for next weekend!! I love AFI and they were very good. I was not the biggest Green Day fan but they are true entertainers and they put on one of the best shows I've ever seen! I would see them again and advise others to see them live as well!! You wont be disappointed! Other than that I've just been working to try to afford all of my trips and concerts.

Russ and I waiting in line to get in
This guy actually wore this!!! Hahahaha! AND...that is a segway sitting next to him...AND...when Green Day came on he actually danced ON the segway swinging glow stick hoops around...right in front of us! Russ and I laughed sooooo hard! I told Russ that he needed to find out where this guy bought this outfit and buy one for the Smashing Pumpkins concert or I will sell his ticket! Classic!

I didn't take too many while I was visiting. Here are a few of my favorites. By the way, I bought my plane ticket today!!! See you all in two weeks! Can't wait! Have a great weekend.

Goofing around while waiting to get started
You guys are so thoughtful

Labor Day

In honor of Labor Day I decided to take a break from my chronological posts. I don't have too many photos of me working but a few do exist. Here are a few photos of me working in ICU both in IL and in Denver. I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend! I of course am working the holiday but the time and a half is worth it! Happy Labor Day!

St. Louis

On Friday the 20th of August I flew into St. Louis to go to a Cardinal's game with Ryan. We had so much fun!! Believe it or not I had never been to the top of the arch so we did that and we walked around the stadium since I'd never been there either. The stinking Cardinal's lost but Pujols hit a home run and it hit the benches 10 or 20 feet below us. You can just barely see us in the top right corner of the highlights. Everyone kept asking why I didn't dive for it. You should have heard that thing hit!!! It definitely would have broken something! Then we went to a bar and had dinner and watched a jazz/blues band. On the way back to the hotel we got caught in a monsoon scale downpour and were completely soaked by the time we made it back. We had too much fun!! Have a great holiday weekend everyone!! I'll be working every day but hopefully that will make it so that I can come back for William's confirmation.
