My head will not stop spinning!

Hello, is anyone out there? I am sure that anyone who once was, is loooong gone! I am back and ready to start blogging!

Okay, These are not in order by any means. I am having a hard time moving pics once they are downloaded. I need some serious help organizing the pictures to where they are not reversed...Sarah Greer? any thoughts?

In the past 5 weeks, I have been home for a total of 4 days. I came home from Africa on Tuesday the 23rd of June, left for my fabulous girls weekend in Vegas on the 25th, back from there on the 28th, home for 4 days, then off to the lake for the fourth of July...went straight from the lake to Searcy, AR (whooo hoo) and Little Rock to work on the club house at our new apartment complex for three days...then straight to the lake for the weekend. I am finally home today and boy does it feel good!

I remember a couple of months ago, I prayed that I would get busier...boy did He answer my careful what you wish for! ha!

Africa was the most incredible, unique experience I have ever had. I absolutely loved the thrill of hunting in the bush with my husband and our good friends Hank and Anna.

The lodge was was far from roughing it. it was equipped with a full staff to do our laundry, cook three meals a day, and clean up after us..what more could you ask for??

Everyday we would put on our gear...lots of layers b/c it started out cold and got really hot. ....and we would go out on the beautiful ranches in search for the wild game.

It was not easy , let me tell ya....we would sometimes walk for miles in search for the perfect hunt. It was adrenaline pumping excitement followed by hours of driving through the south african wild looking for the perfect target.

We not only went to hunting ranches, we went to a few photography ranches and a lion breeding ranch.

We left the hunting lodge a few days early and headed off to Cape Town for a fabulous 4 day weekend!
I have never seen more beautiful terrain in my life!

I will have a more as the days go on about Africa, we had so much fun and so many pics, I cant do them all in one post.
Stay tuned for pics from Vegas! woo hoo!

You totally did fall off the blogging wagon!!!

We missed you at Mary and Clark's wedding, but your mom represented you well.

It looks like you had a great trip and have been quite busy!!! I didn't really like the pictures of the dead animals, but I'll deal... Good times!

Well, I hope all is well and hopefuly I will see you sometime (maybe at a football game?).
