top five friday.

1 - tucano's brazilian grill. o.m.g. if you've never been here, you need to fix that asap. there are a lot of other brazilian restaurants like it - you know, the bring-evey-kind-of-meat-you-can-think-of-right-to-your-table kinds of restaurants? but my favorite is definitely tucano's. we didn't know it, but they were having a mother's day special while we were there, so instead of having the limited lunch menu, we got the full blown dinner menu, plus some. it was heavenly. and on top of that, my meal was free! happy early birthday to me! {only 10 more days folks!}

{cheesy, cheesy grin}

2 - blue bell ice cream. i woke up with a pulled muscle in my back yesterday {can you say 'old fogey'??}, so when we went to the store, the mr. let me pick out any ice cream i wanted. after all, ice cream makes everything better. and let me tell you this my friends: blue bell is quite possibly the best ice cream you could ever eat in your whole entire life. if i could have one dessert every day and never get fat off of it, i'd pick blue bell ice cream - pralines and cream to be exact. the sad part is that it's not sold just everywhere. we saw it in both alabama and texas, but i've never seen it in utah or california. that was probably a good thing though. it's not exactly the most healthy thing in the world. but on the bright side, maybe this can be an incentive for all of you to come visit us. we'll buy you a whole gallon for yourself!

3 - having a gym again. after my little tucano's/blue bell spiel just now, it's easy to see how bad i need a gym. i think that was the only good thing about laughlin afb is that they actually had a really nice work out facility. then when we moved to california, the park we had behind our house was fabulous, but since we didn't have bikes, we were limited to only running/walking. having a gym here is like i've rediscovered working out again. i'm loving it! i put on my 'grey's anatomy' {which is really intense right now, just fyi} and i feel like i can run for hours. i guess i can add another thing to the list of my favorite things about cheyenne.

isn't it just perfect? and the fact that there's a tutorial with it makes it an even bigger favorite of mine. i can't wait to move into our house, so i can get to work on this little beauty!

5 - speaking of houses...we know the exact one we are going to live in! i honestly can't complain about our living situation right now. we are in the air force hotel and when we got here, the only thing they had available was a 3-bedroom place. it's got its own living room and kitchen and, well, 3 whole bedrooms. i do miss having my own stuff though and i'm not a fan of living off of only the things i could pack in my suitcase, so it'll be nice to be able to get into our own place. like i've said before, we still have until june 1st-ish until we can move in, but that doesn't stop me from getting my creep on and driving by our soon-to-be-house at least twice a day.

isn't it so cute? i love it already! i can't wait for the swing that will go on that front porch and the flowers that will go in those planter boxes and to know that this is where we are going to keep our feet for the next four years. it's such a good feeling!

happy friday to ya my friends. hope it's fantastic!
