Brad Paisley


Just 2 weekends ago Ryan and I joined our best friends out for a night of country music! We went to see Dierks Bently and Brad Paisley at USANA. Before hand I was lucky enough to talk everyone into getting Chef Tom's for dinner!! Probably the best food in ALL of Utah! So after dinner we piled in our cars and made the trip to USANA we got pretty reasonable parking! I have the 2 best girlfriends in the world! We have SO much in common and just have SO much fun together! It was a great concert and we all had a great time! Towards the end it started to rain but that wasn't stopping us! And it didn't take us a million and one hours to get out of the parking lot either! Thanks for the fun time girls!! :]

Frama & Frampa Barras

WOW... its been too long since I last posted and boy do I have some catching up to do! To you bitches who can stay up on this shit.. good on ya!! Sometimes I feel like blogging can be a little soap box and I dont want mine to be that way so I am going to make this post and the next several as happy as possible! I dedicate this one to the cutest couple I have ever met Grandpa and Grandma Barras. I dont know about you but I only have 1 grandmother still living.. I never knew my mom's dad and barely knew my dad's dad and my dad's mother died 4 years ago from breast cancer she was my best friend and I miss her dearly.. so I think it is so neat that Ryan has both sets of Grandparents still living. His Gma and Gpa Barras are by far the cutest couple known to man kind! They have been married for a bigillion and 1 years and you can still see the spark they have in their eyes when they look at each other. (Look how happy he looks by her side!)

Well anyways... Ryan's Grandpa has not been doing so well. After 2 triple by pass surgeries you'd think he would be use to surgery and pain by now! Man he is a trooper.. He has been suffering from back and leg pains for about 2 months now and they just keep getting worse and to boot 2 disks in his back were out of place and his arthrities wasn't helping either! So the weekend after my surgery Ryan and I made a trip to Burrely (hick voice) Idaho... we were greeted with warm  hearts and open arms. It reminds me so much of my Grandma's house I just love it. Friday night Ryan and his dad HAD to get out of the house so we went to Melody's. Some po ass dunk place in Idaho. It was SO cool and weird to me. For one I have never been into a bar and for another that probably wasn't the best place to go for my first impression!! Ry and Kenny B were shooting the drinks like it was nobody's bidness. I on the other hand knew I should probably stay sober so I could kick their asses in line if needed!! Ry sang some karaoke and I showed ID how us SLC girls rip up the dance floor!!

Saturday we hung out at Ryan's Grandma's and helped her with anything we could. She made me chicken noodle soup just out of the can but boy I swear it was the best chicken noodle soup ever! All I needed was a little Grandma loving! :] Before we left we gave hugs bye and Ryan let Grandpa know that he couldn't pass yet because there was many more fishing trips in the future with our munchkins! I hope to God he is still around because I know my children will love him just as I do! Ryan calls his Grandma every Sunday to see how things are going and she was so ecstatic and SO happy that Grandpa was doing so well! I broke down and cried and just though how fortunate Ry is to have wonderful Grandparents. It really made me miss my Gma Lo! So I am letting you know from expereince savor EVERY second you have with the old folks, because you can't get them back no matter how hard you try!! R.I.P G-Ma!!

Surgery, Recovery, Week of hell!!

All is well in The Barras household!! I am slowly but surely getting back to my normal self! :] THANK GOD!! Here is a few things we have been up to since our last post!!

The first Boise Game!! Woot Woot!! We had a little get together at our house for the Boise game since we ARE huge fans!! Peyton's dad Will and his little brother Alex were able to come down and hang out for the night Ryan had a blast with them! I of course HAD to get Peyton all jacked up on suga so I have him all the oreo cookies his little heart could imagine.... well after that we had this...
Peyton showing off his break dancing moves!! It was HILARIOUS!!! I had no idea that this could come out of this boy! He is usually shy and reserved! Well of course Auntie loved it!! :]
That next day I had to go in for surgery on my poor tonsils!! I was so nervous Thursday I dont think I slept more then 3 hours! I was making myself SO sick to my tummy! Friday morning I woke up bright early hoping a hott shower would calm my nerves.. yeah I was wrong!!
Once we got into the surgical center my horrible thoughts were flying and I was seeing my life flash before my eyes!! As I was signing all the documentation like... please note this surgery may result in death, coma, blah blah. I told Ry just remeber I want to be cremated and PLEASE take good care of my puppies!! LOL Well after that was all finished they took us back to the room where I would get ready for surgery of course my sweet mother came along with us to make sure the doctor had the correct health history on me. As he asked 180943434 questions my mom knew the answers to all of them and some that came to a surprise to me! Well the doctor cleared me for surgery and I kissed my sweet mother goodbye and hugged my hubby like I was never going to see him again!
LOL I went into surgery at 9:45 and was awake and ready to go home by noon! My mom drove me home and made sure I was comfy while hubby ran to the grocery store for everything he thought we might need for the next week. Juice, capri sun, gatorade, go gurt, apple sauce, soup, popsicles up the wall. Well I was feeling pretty good just tired from all the drugs so Friday night I slept most of the night! Saturday I am pretty sure I was still on the anesthesia because oh boy was I ready to go out or what!! LOL My sweetest bestest girlfriend Vannessa brought me some gorgeous flowers and of course popsicles!! Later that night Lisa and her "FIANCE" Garrett came to see me and we took a little trip to Coldstone where I was feeling goooddd!! LOL I told everyone that the surgery was not near as bad as thought it would be! Ba ha ha oh man did I have a LONG road comin or what. Sunday I woke up as if I was hit and ran over a thousand times by a Mack truck!! My meds had worn off and I was in HELL!! I remeber Monday night just moaning and crying in Ryans arms! Poor guy didn't have sleep for a week. I have to shout out to my mom and sister who really pulled out for me and were there every single step of the way! My mom (Nurse Ratchet) was so good she was such a good help and checked on me every half hour to make sure everything was going okay. She babysat me from 7:30-4:00 when Ry would get off work and take over!  I DONT think I would have made it without her! My sister last but not least was a HUGE help and cleaned my kitchen and would lay with me and stay home with me while I was so down and out!  (She would even sneak me pain meds when my mom took them away because I had had enough ;] shh...) Through this surgery and week of hell Ryan and I have realized every single person that is there for us when we need them the most! ;] We cant thank you guys enough for EVERYTHING you did! I dont think I would have such a fast recovery if it wasn't for you your encouragement, support, and sympathy! I love you ALL!!
