Weekend Recap : Playing Catch up!

I'm still in the process of playing catch up after traveling to Nebraska to visit my husbands family last weekend.  We had THE BEST time and I absolutely love traveling out there.

We headed to the airport right after I got off work on Wednesday and flew into Denver International Airport.  We had to stop by  to rent a car to drive about 3.5 hours into Nebraska to my husbands Uncles ranch.  We got in about 3:30 am and went straight to bed!

My husband woke up bright and early to start ranching.  I slept in till about 8 am and went to his Uncles for some coffee and breakfast.




We hung out and then a bunch of us got on horses to move cattle into a different pasture.

It was so much fun, and there were about 35 horses out moving cattle. Being from California, I had never done anything like this before so I didn't really know what I was doing or what to expect.  But I had fun nonetheless.


After moving cattle to where we needed to, we rode the horses around for a while before having "supper," which is their lunch.  EVERY-TIME we go out there, they always cook the most amazing food.  And let me tell ya, there steaks are TO DIE FOR.  It just tastes better.

After "supper" was his cousins graduation party which was held in the "vet shack" on the ranch.  Over 100 people showed up and man did we party.  Wrestling matches were going on and balloon contests.  As well as fireball shots being passed around. 


It started pouring really hard around 10 pm, and we thought we were going to be stuck in the vet shack till morning, but luckily it stopped by 1 and we went to bed around 2 am!



The next morning was the branding. ((Warning, graphics below may upset you))
It was a rough start to the morning because of the night before's activities and drinking shenanigans.  We got up and out the door to go to the branding around 9, and my husband decided to help while I watched.




After half of the branding, we had coffee and a quick breakfast before continuing with the rest of the cattle.  I even got to help my husband move the last set of calves from the barn!  They were so cute!

The rest of the day was spent lounging around, jumping on the trampoline with the neices and nephews and grubbing on the best food!  They seriously make the best homemade food. 
Steak, cheesy hashbrown mashed potatoes, salad, asparagus, home-style potato wedge cuts, and all the desserts and treats you can think of!

The next day we drove by to see the day old baby horses! They were so cute!



We grabbed lunch with his grandparents on our way to the airport, and because his Uncle lives near the airport we grabbed dinner with them before heading on our flight!
We cannot wait to go back!

Weekend Recap

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I sure did! I am co-hosting with Bella from Bella and The City to bring you our weekly Weekend Recap!

Friday night we decided to have a Disney date since now we are officially annual passholders (So excited!!!)   We went to California Adventure, walked around and went on our favorite Toy Story ride/game.  We are pretty competitive when it comes to games so it makes it fun!  After the ride we went to have some dinner and then went home.   We were pretty tired so we figured we can come back whenever we want.  We were lucky enough to park on top of the parking structure to see the fireworks as we were walking to our car!


Saturday I woke up bright and early to process orders from my etsy shop.  Then I took a nap (I know, how ridiculous!)  I don't know why I was so tired!   After my nap, I began getting ready for the night.  We went out to the bars by the beach in Newport.  A bunch of old and new friends met up with us, and we we ended up staying out way too late.  You know, one of those late night taco bell fourth meal kinda nights. 



Sunday we took  the lovely Porsche around downtown by the beach and had some delicious Bloody Marys and lunch!  We were hurting pretty bad from the night before so we went home and I passed out on the couch while the boys went in the spa.  We ordered Dominoes for dinner and just lounged around.

Weekend Recap

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I am co-hosting for another great WEEKEND RECAP with Bella! AND, I was lucky to take Monday off work so I had a great extended weekend. 


Friday night, the hubby and I had a nice dinner at Lucilles BBQ with some friends, and man was it good! I always love a good BBQ dinner :)

Saturday was spent looking at granite and having a nice breakfast with my parents.  Then I cleaned the rest of the day/night and processed orders from my Etsy shop!

Sunday I layed out by the pool and I was so excited because my Aunt and cousin were in town from North Carolina later that night! So we cooked dinner and spent some great time with them.

Monday we woke up super early and were basically the first people to walk into Disneyland.  We spent all day at the park (both California Adventure and Disneyland) and my other Aunt and cousin came down for the day to spend it with all of us.  My husband and I both purchased annual passes again and I am so excited that we will be able to go to Disneyland this year whenever we want! (Jumping for JOYYYYY).
We ate at my FAVORITE Chicken place inside Disneyland and it was not crowded at the park all day.  We were able to go on SO many rides (without fast passes!)  It was so great!

and I HAD to post this because I totally BEAT my husband.. BOOM!  318,500!   (although not the highest I've ever scored aha!)

(Me on the right)  But can we talk about how angry I look...   totally focussed.
