Not a fabulous way to start out a Monday.... So this morning on my way to work guess what?
Yup, I got pulled over. I admit this past couple of months I have been in my own world. BUT honestly I wasn't even paying attention to how fast I was going. I am ALWAYS complaining about the "speeders" that fly by my house and what did I do... THE EXACT SAME THING!
But in my defense.... I really didn't know that the speed limit was only 25.
So picture this.... I am in my car with curlers in my hair - and my makeup bag open on the seat next to me - no seat belt - but I am wearing this really cute sweater today that I got over the weekend. The officer came to my window and got my drivers license and registration. I thought this would be a good time to call Rob - ya uhm no. I started crying which soon turned to uncontrolled sobbing. The hormonal monster that lives inside my body stuck her head out..... The officer came back to my window told me that there wasn't any reason to be crying and gave me a warning. WHAT? No ticket? I am still amazed and very perplexed but a little happy that I can still get out of a ticket.
BUT - YES LESSON LEARNED. I WILL BE PAYING ATTENTION AND BUCKLING UP!

This past weekend we decided to take a trip to the Sand Dunes since it was getting cooler. Rob asked me to call my sister and invite my nephew Colton to go. At first he said no and then called us back later and said that he changed his mind. We had so much fun with him. He mimicked everything that uncle Rob did even to the point of refusing to eat pickles - which he LOVES! It was cute and I know that Rob got a kick out of it.
The first night we were there we rode over to Sand Mountain and the entire trip over there Colt kept telling me to do what Rob was doing and to go faster. When we got the mountain he asked me to take him up there. I have done it before on Rob's bike and it is easier as it is much faster but the one and only time I took mine up there I didn't like it as it went to slow. Rob ended up taking Colt on my bike and he loved every second of it. My sister almost dies when she heard but he was in good hands and had his helmet on!
When Colt saw Rob jump the first time he told me that it was amazing. Hopefully someday Rob and I will be able to bring our little person to show him some firsts. It really was a lot of fun. Colt actually didn't want to go home.... But when you have Auntie Bree and Uncle Rob and your disposal and catering to your every need....why not, right?
