Picture Heavy!

Hey guys!

I thought I would stop in quickly and share a few pictures and stories!

So first of all I received the most wonderful birthday present this week! Mel, Jason and Myles bought me the most beautiful Pandora bracelet! I have generally not cared for the silver ones but Mel had a leather one and I really loved it.. and they got me one! Check it out.. its absolutely beautiful!

So last night Jason got home and he told me to look outside, we could see the norther lights right out the door!! So we got all bundled up and headed up to Flattop because Gary Jones has been getting some beautiful pictures up there! Well on the way there Gary let us know there was a wounded brown bear running around up there and of course Jason didn't bring his gun.. so I wasn't really inclined to get out and walk around! Besides the lights weren't even out.. the city looked beautiful though.. this is a picture I got on my cell phone.. I have better ones I will send from the camera.

Gary Jones met us up there, I felt really bad that I said they were out and he came all the way up there and there was nothing out! BUT he did take some wonderful pictures of Jason & I...

I have now recruited Gary to take pictures of Jason and I for a Christmas card.. I'm so super excited about it! I have been looking at photographers for months but they all want thousands of dollars and obviously Jason is a tight wad! So Gary agreed with it, so as soon as it snows we will pick a place and go! YAY!
Anyways tonight I picked up Jason from work and although it wasn't planned we decided to go check and see if we could find some moose.... look what we found!

All is a nights drive.. haha.. you cant really tell but the moose laying in the woods has a MASSIVE rack! Go figure I didn't take the camera AGAIN.. we didn't plan to go and that's when we always see things. I seriously plan to pick up Jason tomorrow and go again! Then on Sunday I want to go out walk around there.. with Jason's gun of course!
Well I'm off to finish watching Grey's Anatomy and go to bed!
Happy Friday to all of you that don't have to work on Saturday!! Hope you enjoy the pictures!!

All about Sunday Funday!

Well hello there all,

Ive been meaning to blog all day and just haven't gotten around to it as I have spent the whole entire day baking cookies and moose hunting.. haha my new hobby!

Well, lets back track for a minute.. when was the last time I blogged? Well Sunday Jason and I decided we would head out for breakfast at the Kriner Diner because Jason has been wanting to try it and let me tell you the breakfast was enough for 6 people! Jason didn't even put a dent in it so that should tell you how much food it was! After that we headed downtown to exchange my sweater for the right size and then we were off to Flattop! We didn't see anything up there in regards to wildlife because they were doing some construction but none the less it was beautiful!

After that we came home to watch the game and have a fire! We have never used the wood burning fireplace in our apartment because of the inevitable mess it would make and we were worried about everything smelling like smoke. But we decided that it is definitely cold enough so why not.. and it was GREAT! It was more for the amnions than anything else but it was so enjoyable!

For dinner Jason made fried halibut.. that was pretty good too!!

Monday I was back to work which I always hate, finally got heat though because Deanna was cold.. didn't really matter that I froze all weekend, when she was cold than shit happened. All morning Monday at work it was 48 degrees in the office!

Today was my day off which always makes me happy!! Tammy, Imelda and I went on a moose hunt this morning.. GUESS WHAT WE SAW! Two males fighting again!!

If you can believe it.. after this one of the males mounted the other.. HAHA!! It was absolutely hilarious.. I couldn't get pictures because we were pulled off to the side of the road and some guy came behind us and pulled right in the way. It was HILARIOUS!.. Jason and I have joked about seeing that but I never thought I would.. SO FUNNY!

After our moose hunt we headed out to lunch at La Mex.. soo good! I have been wanting to have Mexican food since we've been here but Jason wouldn't do it so I got my fix and it was EXCELLENT! Then we headed back here so I could bake! I had made all the dough this morning so I was straight to baking when I got home.

I finished baking and started on dinner and that's whats in now, waiting for Jason to get home. I'm hoping to go on another moose hunt tonight but I'm sure Jason will want to go to the gym.. we'll see what happens. Tomorrow we are starting a no carb diet which I'm all for and wont have a problem with but Jason will be another story.. haha should be interesting!

Well I'm off to have dinner, I hope everyone is having a great week!

It should be Saturday!


I wish it was my weekend, I hate working on Saturdays.. especially at this place! Its been a rough week there.. honestly I don't know what to do anymore about that place! We haven't had heat in the office since MONDAY.. and probably wont have it until this Monday coming.. hopefully! Its cold here by the way.. I mean really cold.. well into negative digits.. in fact we aren't even reaching positive numbers as daytime highs.. and we have no heat! We have two little space heaters which in this cold are doing nothing to heat up a whole apartment.. its bullshit is what it is! I figure its just a dig at me because even with heat on I'm always cold in there! So they don't seem to be rushing to fix it, that's for sure.. probably because neither of them are there!

This week has reached an all time low to their ignorant behavior.. they are barely ever in the office, even her! They are screwing people out of tons of money left right and center, and if you can believe it on top of no heat apparently they are no longer going to provide paper towel or toilet paper.. its absolutely ridiculous! Most days there is one thing that throws me over the edge and I just want to walk out.. but its not fair to the residents.

So today I left early because I had a move out and I had to check this out.. lol.. you're going to be so grossed out by it, but honestly if you see the pictures I send out you know that I really like bones, haha like that moose carcass! Well Carl showed me this.. and honestly even I was grossed out but none the less I'm sharing pictures strictly for dramatic effect!

Honestly I'm not sure if its a cat or not.. it would be an awfully large cat. What is even more strange is the fact that nothing had eaten it! Right where it is has a family of fox that live there.. I don't get! Either way.. SICK!
Anyways this week was my birthday.. man I tell ya things really didn't go my way! Besides work being a total shit show at best.. Tasha sent me a mug that was in pieces when I opened it! I got a parcel from Mom and Dad tonight and look what was in that...

As you can you things didn't remain in tact here either! I don't know what the hell, I opened up the box and I could hear the broken glass! Not only was the jar completely broken but everything was covered in glass.. when I opened everything inside Jason had to take the blanket I had on and shake it off outside while I vacuumed the carpet and couch! Then I opened the sweater Jason ordered for me that came late and its the wrong size and I actually really like it and they don't have anymore.. haha GO FIGURE! I swear I'm convinced Alaska is a hole.. where souls get eaten.. I hate it!
On a good note though, I did receive BEAUTIFUL flowers on my birthday! Jason sent me a beautiful assortment of fall colors because he said he knew I didn't get to enjoy fall (because we didn't have it!) so he thought he would prolong it for me a little longer. Bubba and Jen also sent me a BEAUTIFUL arrangement of yellow roses.. absolutely wonderful surprise! Take a look!

Anyways back to Alaska sucking! Jason's been super busy at work because they are actually getting somewhere! They finally fired one of the turbines and things went really well! They are having issues with construction though and Jason's blood has just been boiling.. and anyone who knows Jason knows that he very rarely gets mad about anything or lets things bother him.. that has not been the case! Then today he tells me that he will probably have to work Christmas Day.. which as awful as it is just at that.. I have to work Christmas eve and the day after Christmas. Honestly usually I would have cried but I expect shit like this now! Apparently because we don't have kids or I don't choose to stay away from Jason and have my own life somewhere else we don't get any consideration on holidays or for time off.. ever! I'm so pissed off.. if Jason really does have to work on Christmas Day I will absolutely cry.. and no.. don't anyone write me and say "just come home".. I would rather at least see Jason for 5 minutes Christmas Day than nothing! See.. Alaska eats souls! NEVER EVER has Jason had to work Christmas!
What else do I have to bitch about? haha probably something but I cant think of anything else right now! I'm going to go and listen to Pandora and Pin on Pinterest! Jason went to the gym to blow off a little steam!
Hope everyone has a great weekend! Thank you again to everyone for all the birthday wishes and wonderful gifts I am so very grateful!
