The Wives Club

While Adam is out selling, I am left here at the apartment car-less and husbandless for the rest of the day. So how do I occupy myself so I do not go completely insane? The Wives Club! Luckily, there are 6 other awesome wives (and 1 way cute baby)! We have started several traditions over the past month which we love. Every Friday we all go to lunch. Last Friday we went to a little Mexican restaurant, which sadly wasn't very good. When Rachel asked for some ranch for her taco salad, they gave her this Costco size bottle of Hidden Valley. We swore they just ran to the grocery store next door to get it for her!
I have also really gotten into crafting. One Friday after lunch, we went walking around St. Charles and walked into a store with lots of fun stuff in it. We all saw this calendar/organizer center and decided we could all use one of those, but not for the price! So I went to the craft store and decided to make my own. Since then, the wives have been calendar center making machines and we have all made a few for gifts. Here are a few I've made:
After perusing Martha Stewart's website, I stumbled upon this really cute idea for a baby gift. Since I'm only around one baby out here, and she is the cutest baby around anyway, I gave the blocks to Bria! I'm sure I will be making more in the future!

In addition to the above mentioned activities, the most popular and most frequent Wives Club activity includes sitting at the pool and being the weird chicks who play cards or dice EVERY DAY! We love Nertz, Rummy, Hearts and Dice! I have so much fun with these girls and I'm so thankful that they are out here! Really, I don't know what I'd do without them. And I think Adam appreciates them keeping me company as well. Yay for Wives Club!

Okay...Last One

This is the glass in the floor of our bungalow. We saw all kinds of fish swimming below us...
And Adam!

Ahhh so beautiful. Sooo expensive. And so worth it.

To Make You More Jealous...

Getting ready to eat the most yummy dinner! I was honestly worried about the quality of the food that we were going to be eating before we got there. However, I had NOTHING to worry about. Each dinner was a 3 course meal and was so delicious. I had the best dessert of my whole life...and anyone who knows me understands how much I LOVE dessert!
Adam and I were guest stars of the show. We got to go up and dance at the restaraunt.
Yes, these are real flowers.

This is actually a pineapple field. They go on for miles on Moorea. Our guide picked a pineapple right out of the field and fed it to us. It was one of the best pineapples I've ever had!

Well we flew out of LA straight to Tahiti. It was an 8 1/2 hour flight, but luckily we all had our own TV's where we could watch movies and play games so we were entertained! We stayed the first night in Tahiti. The first picture above is a view from our room in Tahiti and the next is the inside. We then hopped on a little puddlejumper over to Moorea! Our bungalow was so perfect. We had a big porch off the back, and then some stairs down to a tanning deck where you could jump off into the water. The island was beautiful! It was so lush and green and it totally reminded us of Lost. Enough that we decided we couldn't go any longer without watching Lost. So we purchased internet (for a very hefty price), and tried to download Lost on their s l o w internet!

Our Wedding

Well, after weeks of discovering that everyone we know has a blog, thoroughly enjoying reading them, stalking a few of them and secretly wishing we had one of our own...we did it! It is clearly the married thing to do. I personally like blogs better when people have funny children who "say the darndest things", but sometimes Adam is like a kid and says funny things too, so hopefully this will still be enjoyable! Plus, we have a new addition in our family. No, I did not miraculously have a child in a month, and no I did not steal a baby, but we do have Carlos Perkins, the Chinese Dwarf Hamster! So perhaps he'll have some entertainment value. Well, when Adam actually gets home, we'll put up some pics of our wedding and our exotic honeymoon!
