Key West here we come!

If you have seen even 1 minute of any news channel in the past week or so you've heard about the H1N1 virus (aka Swine Flu). 

Well it has threatened to ruin our vacation plans to Cozumel! But we have refused to let it stop us from going somewhere and having a much needed vacation.

Finally Monday we heard that Carnival had canceled our cruise out of Galveston but we were quickly offered an alternative cruise out of Mobile, Alabama that sails to Key West and Freeport Bahamas.

This is actually an upgrade so we're very excited and can't wait to go to those new destinations. 

We'll be gone a whole week now. 

Can't wait!! Hope you have a vacation coming up that you can look forward too also!

28 days to go.....

Until vacation!!! We are going to be traveling to Galveston, TX to go on a cruise to Mexico. We are so excited and definitely in need of a vacation! This past year has been a long one with moving, new jobs, the horrible economy and everything else that has gone on!

We picked the Galveston port so we could fit in a quick visit with Matt's Mom (who lives in Galveston) and sister Morgyn & bro-in-law Brad who live in Houston. 

This will be our 3rd cruise and we hope for great weather since the last one we didn't have the best conditions at sea.

I can't wait for this.....

And I think Matt is most excited about this:  

(they serve Cheeseburgers 24/7 on the ship and they are tasty!)

Happy St. Patricks Day!

Hope you have a great St. Patty's Day!

Here's one of my favorite Irish blessings:

An Old Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

P.S. If anyone out there ever checks this blog, I will admit I'm a horrible blogger... hopefully more posts will be coming soon!

K-State fans.... Are you ready???

Matt and I are both excited for K-State football this year. We are already making plans for tailgating and lots of fun this fall. The return of Coach Snyder has a lot of fans excited and optimistic for the future of the program.

We're not asking for a miracle here Bill, just a few more wins than the last few years!

We enjoy tailgating with our friends the Heersche family from Wellington. They have established a name for their tailgating gang called the "Garage Crew". Everyone that participates gets a t-shirt with their own number.

Well this year we had an addition to the family, our puppy Dale. Heersche's were kind enough to invite Dale to be part of the "Garage Crew" and made him an official member by giving him his very own K-State tailgating shirt! Here are a few pictures...

Go Cats!!

New to this....

HI! So I admit after reading the blogs of many friends I've decided to try one of our own. I don't know if I'll be as dedicated at posting or if I'll be able to figure out pictures and everything like that.

I thought it would be a neat way for people to see what we're up to, especially those that don't use Facebook.

Check back periodically and you might find something new here!

Happy New Year to you and we look forward to all that is in store for us in 2009.

Ashley & Matt
