So much "cooler"

Old and Busted.......

New Hottness!!

Well folks it was a sad day here on Wednesday. My little fridge gave up the ghost and died. I was devastated, how could I keep my sodas cold for my good paying customers!! I started doing some research online and was trying to decide what I was willing to spend and what I wanted to do. I came in to work on Thursday morning still contemplating my choices. Imagine my surprise to find a huge box wrapped up on my desk! My boss had bought this awesome fridge for me!! Let's just say she definetely gets free sodas for life!

Locked Up

My aunt Lori works out at the prison and every once in awhile they have a Corrections Week where the people that work out there can have their family come out for a tour. I was able to go a couple of years ago on my birthday and asked if Matt and I could go this year. So we spent last Saturday in prison!

It's quite an interesting experience for sure. We started out with a tour of the maximum security and death row cells. These guys are locked down for 23 hours a day and their "yard" is a concrete box outside. This definetely is not the kind of life I'd like to live. Then we went to the execution chamber and saw the table where they do the lethal injections and also saw the set up for the firing squad.

Next we went out to one of the other buildings were the prison looked more like what you see on the tv shows. Four stories of nothing but cell doors. That experience was pretty intimidating and the prisoners were less than 5 feet away and of course they were acting up because they felt like they were on display.

All in all it was a very fun day, that ended with a demonstration of the SWAT team's dog. Those dogs are amazing!!
