I'm back!

So, what have I been up to? A lot!

First off, I finally got a job. It was the only place that even called me back for an interview. I'm currently working at a call center. I get to wear jeans and come in at 9:30am, so it's not too bad. But I also don't get any benefits or paid vacation and I have to work on Saturdays.

Now that I'm back at work, I do miss my time off. I've had to get used to getting up early again. And Riley has had to get used to staying in the kennel while I'm at work.

Riley is getting so big. She is 5 months old now and weighs 7lbs. She is getting to be such a big girl. Now she can jump on and off the couch, run up and down the stairs, and play fetch. And she is doing so well in puppy class. She can sit, lay down, stay, roll over, and shake. This Sunday she graduates from class. She will get to wear a graduation hat, get a certificate, and eat ice cream. It's going to be so cute!

Since my last few posts, it seems there has been an outbreak of ringworm in my home. Riley now has 3 ringworms. I have to give her meds every day and give her a medicated bath twice a week. I now have 8 ringworms! They don't really bother me, but I wish they would go away. I have no idea who gave it to who or where we got them.

A couple of weeks ago I got bit by mosquitoes. I quickly learned that I'm allergic. I had 10 swollen mosquito bites on my legs and feet. It was horrible. The picture doesn't do it justice, but it shows how big they got.

So lately I've been super careful when I'm outside. I now carry a small bug spray with me. I've also been careful about the sun. I bought a lotion that has spf 15 and a face lotion that has spf 30. I have to protect this milky white skin :)

Last Monday Kristin and I went to see Gavin Rossdale in concert. It was so awesome. That man is so damn beautiful. We got pretty close to the stage. Close enough to see the sweat drip off him. He played Machine Head, Glycerine, Everything Zen, Chemicals Between Us, and he did an acoustic version of Landslide. Oh Gavin.....

Saturday Amber and I went over to Kristin's to swim. She has the best pool cause it's 8ft deep and there aren't a lot of kids around. We had a lot of fun and got to test out my new waterproof camera.

After we went swimming, Amber and I went to the No Doubt concert. It was sold out, so the lawn was packed. Luckily we found a good spot at the top. It was an awesome show. They played all the hits: Just a Girl, Don't Speak, Rock Steady, Hella Good, Sunday Morning, Spiderwebs, and many more.

On May 17 Mom and I went to see Don Henley at Winstar. That was a lot of fun. We had dinner at the Italian restaurant and gambled a little. Mom won $25 on a penny machine. I've been in love with Don Henley since I was a little girl, so I was super excited to see him. He played Hotel California, Boys of Summer, Dirty Laundry, All She Wants to do is Dance, and Desperado. I didn't get to take any pictures at that concert :(

And lastly, 2 of my friends are pregnant! Kristin and Chelsey will be expecting babies in December. Congrats to them!!
