July 2011 Part 2

 July, 2011 was busy indeed, but a lot fun!! We had planned a motorhome trip from Arizona to Utah to Colorado and back home!  Our plan was thrown for a loop when the motorhome needed a bit of work so we thought we would just drive it in the car.  Kind of crazy since I did not have a DVD player in the car at the time.  Honestly though the kids had a blast!  This road trip is probably my most favorite trip EVER!!!  It was just us on an adventure, no real plans, and no time schedule!!!  The first stop was through Navajo Bridge.  What a great site!  I remember posting a Facebook image something like this first one saying we were in Radiator Springs!  Seriously that is what this place looked like, totally picturesque!   

I was so happy to see that a majority of the pictures included me.  NO I don't like myself that much, I am just NEVER in any pictures.  It is funny looking back at past trips I am maybe in one.  I guess that is true of most mammas.  I love that the pictures always include my little ones.  They were such troopers on this trip.  We all listened to music, talked about everything, and played games.  We also did a lot of snacking! 
Our first night was spent in Kanab, Utah.  We planned on being there for a few days.  Clint LOVES the Dunes and had always wanted to show us the Coral Pink Sand Dunes.  He usually heads there for a week in September with his guys riding dirt bikes.  They are definitely different than the Glamis Dunes.  They are beautiful with the pink sand, forest on the side, and majestic mountains.  The first night in Kanab was spent on a drive to the dunes, dinner, and a walk to find ourselves an ice cream shop that we would visit every night! 

 I have so many favorite random pictures from this trip it is fun reminiscing.  The more time I spend journaling the more I realize how important it is to stay on top of it!!!  I cannot remember some of the names and dates we visited, I wish I could!  Sitting here writing I can actually remember the stores we walked by and the great small town feel! 

Here is to keeping up with the momentum and getting myself current to 2013!!

July 2011 - Part 1

Wow almost a year has gone by AGAIN!  What an amazing year it was too! July was jam packed with fun adventures.  We try our best to head to California (mostly San Diego) for 4th of July.  Our anniversary is July 2nd so we kill two birds with one stone.  This year we decided to head to Knott's Berry Farm.  I hadn’t been there in FOREVER!!  What a BLAST!!!  The first day we headed to Newport Beach and let the kids hang out.  My beautiful ballerina LOVES the beach.  She just plays in the sand, dips her toes in the water, and soaks up all the sun! 

The next day we headed to the park.  We actually stayed at the hotel so it was an easy walk over!  What a great time we had.  The kids had fun going on the roller coasters, as you can see on miss Gabi goo's face!  I have MUCH more to post about July so I will break it up!!!  It feels great to start journaling again!  I always think about it, but get so busy!  I am barely getting my photo books for 2010 done, so I need to get my bootie in gear!!!


I can’t believe how scared they are of them!  I LOVE them although Montezuma’s Revenge left me weak in the knees.  The next day we went over to the water park and soaked up some sun there.  They had one of those really REALLY REALLY high water slides that you go head first on.  I boldly walked up the 100 flights of stairs and got myself ready to go down AND then PANIC!! I climbed back up the slide and did the walk of shame down the 100 flight of stairs!  WHAT the heck man!  Seriously, ever since I had kids my courage has diminished and my fear of something going wrong has grown! How embarrassing and I will never live that down!!!
Well hopefully I will stay on task and get myself caught up!  Not to mention ALL my Pinterest obsessions I NEED to journal about!  AND that extra special surprise blessing we received!!!

San Diego Rock n Roll ! June 2011

Amazing how fast the summer has gone by!  I was actually complaining to my husband about what I will do to entertain the kids for the whole summer.  We have had one down day and that is it!  As you can tell with my blogging attendance I start something and never finish!  I am defiantly a queen of good intentions.  Seriously, I love to start projects and then I get to busy or maybe bored to finish them.  You should see my craft office!  I seriously found a pair of leggings that are 12 months old that I was going to do something with.  Guess what Miss Gabi is over 4 years old!  I truly admit to this being one or maybe my only flaw! LOL  For many years I have been battling with my weight, so I thought I am going to make a commitment to myself and follow it through.  The commitment is running/jogging/walking anything but finish 6 half marathons.  Well it is June and I have finished three!!!!  I am so proud of myself on so many levels. It is awesome that my kids and my husband are SO supportive.  I will show pictures of my last two once I play catch up!  So June 5th I ran in the San Diego Rock n Roll half marathon!  It was AMAZING!  What a beautiful run and the weather could not have been any nicer!  Okay the only complaint would be it was uphill the whole way or at least felt that way.  It is so awesome to see how excited my husband and kids are when they see me.  My son lets everyone know his mom is a three time gold medalist!  My daughter thinks I am SUPER fast (I am so not)!  My husband always has this look of amazement and let’s me know he is amazed how determined and strong willed I am!  Shoot if I knew they would be giving me these props I would have done it so long ago!  Clint (a.k.a. Mr. LuckyGabi) made the whole trip really nice for me!  We enjoyed Sea World and the night before my race he was smart enough to make reservations on the water at the Fish Market.  The whole trip was beautiful, relaxing and perfect! 

Just an FYI these photos were the only ones taken and they were taken by Mr. LuckyGabi's Iphone!  What an amazing start to a busy Summer!  We decided this summer to get a membership to a local gym and we have been spending our days playing and swimming!  It seems like the days run into each other!  Brandon attended his first Cub Scout Day Camp!  Wow that was a blast for him!  He got to go swimming, learn archery, shoot BB guns and a lot of other fun activities!  I am thinking I REALLY need to have a giveaway soon!  Let me get somewhat caught up and that is what I shall do.  Have any suggestions????  Talk to you soon!

April 2010 Catch up!!

Wow…over a year! Life came at me fast! I am trying to juggle being a great mom, good housewife, excellent business owner, studious student and all of the other stuff! I think when I started the blog it was about promoting my business, but somewhere down the road my business came less important. Don’t get me wrong I love what I do and I always strive to do the best. I just struggle with everything else and how to fit it in. I often ask what my priorities are. My life is always the fullest when I put my family first! My kids have grown up so fast and it is time to think about a career for myself as well. I have been in a post Bac program to earn a teacher’s certificate. I am super excited to be almost done! I could never be done with LuckyGabi since I worked so hard to start and keep it going, it is just as important to me!

My goal for this blog is to help me keep a journal of my life with the family and the great adventures LuckyGabi the business and Lucky Gabi the kids bring me!

Well I am just so excited that I finally took the time to blog!  I had so much fun looking through the pictures.  Amazing looking at the little munchkins and how they look like babies only a year ago!!!  Too fun. 
Not a bunch going on with LuckyGabi!  I am trying to slow things down and just stay a little busy. Talk to you real soon!!
