Boat Races 2011

This was the very very very very very very FIRST boat Races without my Raven!!!

I couldn't believe I actually made it through this drunk walking, drunk swimming, drunk volleyball playing weekend without her. I think we made a pact now that she can never miss a boat race. Her shenanigans of taking off on tradition served her right for her "weekend in hell"

I do not feel bad for you for taking off during boat race weekend.
na na na na boo boo, stick your head in doo doo
My weekend all in all even though Raven wasn't there was fabulous...
Sorry for the shortness of pictures my camera died so I will do a sequel to this blog when I steal other pictures later

Terra and I teaching my Lola how to swim and she did awesome!

Brandon and I sitting on the grandparents dock waiting for the races to start

....and their off

Winner winner chicken dinner


The pictures to come are a little gory...let me tell you the quick story

I am up on my grandparents lawn with all of my friends, Brandon is getting hot and decides he wants to go down to the river and cool off. One of my friends see's Brandon making a motion that looks like he got something in his eye, I just being in the sun with a few cocktails tell my friend, "oh well he probably just lost his contact no big deal"



This gash doesn't look as bad once we got it partially to stop bleeding

we went down to the nurses station to get the wound cleaned up. Brandon just wanted to super glue the laceration and call it good..

we get to the hospital...which indefinitely was pretty quick visit

He didn't want any pictures....

Then he died...


He laid there like a big boy while the nurses asked him the same questions over and over and over and over and over and...ok i will stop because I believe you get the picture

More cleaning and getting stiches....

OH WAIT........NO STITCHES, they believe STAPLES would be better!!!!

The doctor used a staple gun like it was nothing and just held his wound shut, stapled the flesh together wiped it clean and let us go...


You can imagine my irritated-ness of which could have added a little something something if we could have had just a teensy itty bitty does of the big V...or O...wait  the big O could be something else. Well you know what I meant

Actual boat race morning, waking up at Raven's...where is Raven to make me my delicious breakfast...Oh ya she decided to go to Hell, I mean Silverwood.

Like I said...Na na na na boo boo stick your head in doo doo...

Brandon and I chillen at Carol's pool drinking Spodies never had one before and the pineapple in it was to die for!

Oh look Miss. Lola Bear decided to go swimming and then decide to have her own bed...she really is a princess

Brandon, Brad, and Kelsey...really not much else to say about that...


The couples....

My friend Brad's "step-dad" persay took this picture of Brandon and I at dusk. I am in love with this picture and so glad Dennis is growing with his photography

My weekend was great except for Brandon splitting his head open but that was just a minor dent in the weekend. We drank as much as we wanted and had a ton of friends to hang out with and I am super grateful for the friends and family I have surrounding me...

except for Raven...I am going to hold a grudge against her until she brings me a mocha milkshake to my house (:

Oh she did buy me a super awesome tank top with the Fleur Di lis design on i guess i can't stay too mad at her... xoxoxo

Las vegas-Sin City

I haven't blogged in a few days, Why? ask..well Miss. Taylor has been enjoying the sun. lights, and Elvis's of Sin City! That's right, I have been in Vegas for 4 days!

What could I say about my time in Vegas? I was with my best male friend in the whole world, Andrew! He is the best! I have known Andrew since I was 10 years old, starting from the 4th grade in Buckley, Washington, now look where we are; I am living in Spokane working for the railroad and he is working for the Cadillac dealership in Las Vegas, Nevada.

My first night in Sin City was everything LESS THAN a sin. I got to Andrew's house, relaxed a bit while he went to work for the rest of the day. His boyfriend came home later and took me to check into my hotel, Terrible's-it is off the strip just a bit and not the most lavish place, but who needs a personal waiter and someone to hold my hand when I pee. Not me. I sleep here and that is about it. Nice commodities but nothing over the top. When Andrew got off work his boyfriend, himself, Chris (boyfriend's Brother), Nick (Nephew), and myself all went to this delicious mexican restaurant inside the Red Rock Casino, my enchilada was to die for! i didn't want to go out hard core the first night there, my flying experience is never the best so relaxing and making sure I was going to be tip top shape for the next day of walking the strip, shopping until I drop, then partying the night away.

Day 1

I bought this delicious bottle of Nuvo L'espirit De Paris which is a sparkling liquor that I bought at Wal-Mart--Awe the great perks of Vegas

This is my Andrew,  he is literally the best guy/girlfriend ever!

Day 2

Mimosas at 9 am to start the day off fresh

Then let's take another step to a nice 151 daiquiri

Swimming at the M...Amazing. Amazing View (wink face)

Oh..another daiquiri with an extra shot and a cherry..yes please

well..hello..didn't see you standing there with the camera

The night time...

I don't really have any words to explain everything that happened so I will submit a brief description with a ton of pictures...

Tyler and Melissa

I was starving and didn't want to dirty a bowl..nothing like ichiban in a pan

I was fixing my hair...

Oh look we had the same bra!

Heading to Revolution

Must get gas and pose before we go

Oh wait did i have too much to drink before we left

I think so

Andrew and Melissa

ready for the party

"here's to the men that we love; here's to the men that love us, but the men that we love will never love us, so F*** all the men and here's to us!"

Oh sorry i didn't know Ken doll was in real life

I thought i saw a spider, i was trying to get it before it bit him

I <3 my Andrew

Last full day in Vegas...

Shopping time!! Walking through Bally's

Pray to find something great

Oooh..he was naked

I bought only a few pairs of shoes....

I wish.

Didn't buy the dress...I should have
Did buy the shoes

I need this!!!!

I had an amazing time in Vegas with my best best best man friend, Andrew! I met so many new people and hope they can find the time to come and visit me.
