Birthday and Halloween

Here is my birthday and Halloween montage. To be brief, Katie and I decided to get a hotel room over my birthday weekend and got facials and massages. It was a lot of fun and very relaxing. On my actual birthday, I got a Bronco party for the Raiders/Bronco game. It was sweet!!
For Halloween, I was Rocky Balboa. I figured I had the gloves and the shirt so it would be a free costume. Katie planned a great Branch party! Notice my picture with Andy Roddick. I have always wanted to meet him! Enjoy!!

I find that creating these montages is very addicting. I just had to do another last night and thought why not share it. Alison sometimes has a lot of time on her hands!!! Anyways here are random pictures some you have already seen some not. Hope you enjoy!

I wanted Subway Real Bad!!!!

So last Tuesday, September 29th I decided to go to Subway for lunch. The plan was to buy a sandwich and go back to work to work through lunch. Little did I know that other plans were in store for me. I pulled into the parking spot right in front of the store and my foot slipped from the brake to the accelerator and my car went right into the Subway shop. I guess I didn't realize there wasn't a drive through.

Fortunately there were not customers where my car went into the building. However there were quite a few people in there. They were pretty stunned, as was I. The police and fire crew came immediately and asked if I had been drinking or on any medications that would have caused this. I can safely say I was not under the influence. I climbed out the back of my car because the fire squad needed to make sure the building was stable before pulling the car out.

I sat on the sidewalk in shock as many people stared at me and took pictures with their camera phones. The nice policeman finally let me come sit in his car and use his phone to make phone calls. I called work and three of my coworkers came to help and I called my mom who also came along with Lindsay and Madison.

They were able to pull the car out and there was a lot of cosmetic damage but still driveable. I will be getting it fixed in the next week or so.

As for the store it is still closed and should be open in about a week. I am hoping for the best and that they will not come after for all I am worth. My insurance should cover all of the property damage.

I figure I am in the best possible circumstances if this had to happen. I didn't hurt anyone and no one got hurt. I also can still drive my car until I take it in the shop. Count your many blessings!!!! Here are some pictures the day of the accident. Unfortunately we did not get one with the car inside the store.

Kauai 2006!

Me and my friends Hayley, Amanda and Jeff all headed for Kauai on Aug. 18, 2006. Hayley parent's gave us their Marriot time share for the week. All in all the week was a blast despite a rough start when we found out Jeff's brother had passed away a couple days before we left. Jeff still came with us and made it back for the burial.

But on with Hawaii! The Marriot was under construction but was still a lovely place to stay. Here is a picture of the construction and the view from our room and a shot of the tower we stayed in.

It was all very lovely of course. I had been to Maui before with my parents and that island is great too, but Kauai is so beautiful and green everywhere you go. Most days were spent with Lava Flows and good reading by the pool. I also took the time to have a beachside massage for an hour and a half. It was phenomenal!!!

Amanda and I went to Waimea canyon which I guess is like the Grand Canyon but much greener. I have never seen the Grand Canyon so I have no idea. Here is me there!

If you can tell from the picture, my hair was really curly the whole trip! I felt like Monica on "Friends" It just kept getting bigger and bigger because of the humidity but I learned to love the humid air by the end and miss it here in Denver.

We also went up the NaPali coast which is gorgeous. Several movies have been filmed on these beaches and you can only access them by boat. Here is a picture of Amanda, Hayley and I in a cave on the NaPali coast.

So all in all I loved it! Amanda didn't get eaten by a shark even though there was a dead on on the beach at the Marriot. Sorry no picture of it!! And just to clarify Kapaa has two a's not three.

And not to leave out Jeff, here is the picture we got of him trying not to get his board shorts wet for whatever reason. Kind of girly if you ask me!
