My Ass Is On Fire!

So yesterday my best friend and I drive up to Denver to take my nephews senior pictures (she is an amazing photographer). On our way home she asks me " Are your seat warmers on because my ass is on fire?" I look at her very confused and say "What seat warmers?"

We laughed so hard we cried!


Happy Friday Everyone..

It's Ok Thursday..


Oh how I've missed this link up!
It's Ok..

* That I have not linked up for it's ok Thursday in months! I have had so much on my plate lately it's not even funny!

*  That I had to ground my son from going anywhere or seeing his girlfriend for a week! The boy only has two classes and is failing one of them! Hello he can't graduate without passing American History!

* That I have lost 8 lbs and can't seem to loose anymore no matter how hard I try! I've finally come to the conclusion that I'm perfect the way I am and am going to start living that way!


* That I am so frustrated with my dog Greeley! I can't get that dam dog potty trained! The little shit wears DIAPERS! Does anyone know what a pain in the ASS that is?


* That were going to a Halloween party next month and our friends want us to dress up as Gang Bangers again! Now the problem with that is people that didn't know us actually thought we were Gang Bangers crashing the party! lol..


* That I took this picture in a public bathroom! What was I thinking? Oh I know it had to do with the several beers I had consumed earlier.

Train, Train and more Train


So we went to the Train concert last Wednesday and it was so amazing!! They played at one of the most amazing places to ever see a concert! If anyone is ever in Colorado and has the opportunity to go see anyone at Red Rocks I highly recommend it!

The funnest part of the night was tail gating in the parking lot with our dear friends!



This next picture is SO EPIC! Notice Jen is the back ground! She is trying to get in the picture to do the rabbit ears!
And here is the RESULT...


What a Dork.. lol... After plenty of beers why we thought it would be a good idea to take a picture of our feet is beyond me??


Right in the middle of one of the songs the lead singer stops and looks out into the audience and says he's been wanting to do this all night he takes off his guitar and walks into the audience and gives it to a young lady that is sitting in a wheel chair! Now if any of you follow my blog you can only imagine why that brought TEARS TO MY EYES!

This was an amazing time with some pretty amazing friends!

I'm one PROUD AUNT!




Tyler Hagans has endured more physical trauma than most people will ever know, but shows no signs of being defeated.
The Chaparral High School senior knew almost immediately after a motorcycle accident in July that he was paralyzed. Hagans was vacationing in Kentucky with a friend and was a passenger on his friend’s dad’s Harley-Davidson when a deer jumped in front of them. The ensuing impact threw both riders onto the roadway. Hagans’ spinal cord was crushed and his spine was shattered. Several ribs were broken and both lungs were punctured.As if the pain was not unbearable enough, the accident occurred on a 106-degree day, and the 18-year-old lay helplessly on the searing asphalt for nearly 45 minutes, suffering third-degree burns on his back that required skin grafts.
Then, he flat-lined at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville, Tenn. He was gone for four minutes.
“They were able to bring him back,” said Krista Keys, Hagans’ mother and most staunch supporter in his rehabilitation at Craig Hospital, a world-renown spinal cord and brain injury treatment center in Englewood.


To top it off, because the crash happened in Kentucky, where deer-related accidents are considered an “act of God,” Hagans was not covered by the insurance company as a motorcycle passenger. But with all the emotional pain that the family has experienced, it has come out on the other side with a surprisingly upbeat attitude.
Hagans has a strong determination to continue enjoying life in spite of his permanent injury. His mantra, “Cowboy Up!,” is proudly displayed on hundreds of wristbands and T-shirts worn by Chaparral students and staff.
“If I don’t walk, it’s not really a big deal, because I can still do the same stuff you guys do, but I’m just in a wheelchair,” he said. “I’m still going to live my life and I’m going to have fun doing it, too.”
He has not only maintained a positive attitude, Hagans has kept his confidence and a wicked sense of humor. He kindly asked a doctor not to take skin for a skin graft from his rear end, citing it as his best physical asset.
The Parker teen also has flirted his way through treatment with various nurses, even using a chalkboard when he could not talk to ask for one’s number. However, it’s all in good fun. Hagans has a devoted girlfriend named Emily. His mother had a talk with Emily, saying she understood if Emily wanted to move on and not deal with a stressful situation.
“Her response was: ‘I didn’t fall in love with Tyler for his legs,’ ” Keys said.
In some way, Hagans considers himself “really lucky” because he was one inch away from becoming a quadriplegic. The helmet he was wearing during the accident might also have saved his life. The spinal cord specialists at Craig Hospital have helped Hagans through his rehabilitation, and various programs introduce him to new opportunities, such as scrap-metal sculpting, blow darts, fishing, camping and horseback riding.
The family has been helped along by donations from family members and friends, including one man who is donating his time to build a ramp into their Stonegate home. In a few months, it will become an adaptable home that allows Hagans to move around more freely. An account called the Medical Fund for Tyler Hagans (#7220407550) has been set up at Wells Fargo Bank and the family is accepting donations of materials for remodeling.
Doctors, close friends and his mother have been impressed by Hagans’ motivation and unshakable will under dismal circumstances. Keys looked on with admiration and tears in her eyes as Hagans laughed with a therapist Sept. 7 during his second session of functional electrical stimulation, which makes the leg muscles contract and move, preventing them from becoming atrophied.
“His spirit the entire time has been intact,” she said.
