So have you ever been in a situation and when someone comes up on the scene you are praying so hard that it's not who you think it is?! Well, here's a great story for ya! We were on our way up to Vail and Luke said he had to go to the bathroom bad, so we pull off on an exit that shows a gas station, but when we get off, there is not a sign to show which way to turn for the gas station. By the way, if you have ever driven through the mountains you know that the gas stations are few and far between. So we look in both directions, see nothing at all and have to take a wild guess which way. So we go right and drive...and drive....and drive...and nothing but houses. So I get on my new handy dandy phone and go to the GPS system and search for gas stations. Not handy at all, so we turn around and start going back toward the interstate. Luke couldn't last that long, so we drove down what looked like a deserted road which had a couple houses on it, but shortly came to a dead end. So we turned around, and as soon as we did, we noticed this at one of the houses...
As you can see, the car is stopped right in front of the driveway so Luke jumped out and took off to use the port-a-potty. As soon as I take this picture, I look up and see a car coming down the road. Yeah, you guessed it...the homeowner. I see him put his blinker on and stop right in front of our car and roll the window down. So I jump into the driver seat to move the car forward and roll my window down. And I pray this will be the only time that I start a conversation with a stranger with, "I'm sorry sir, my husband is using your port-a-potty. We're from Oklahoma and are lost." :) Thankfully he just laughs at me and asks if I wanted directions. Well, I think that's a little too late sir!! What a humbling experience!

This post brought to you Live from Hays, KS! That's right folks, we are on the move for the next week! Our first and only vacation of the year is finally here!! Well, I know I have kept some of you in suspense with the last post. :) The great news is that Luke got a new job!! He will be an engineer for Cox Communications now. He will put his official 2 weeks notice in next Monday when we get back. We are so excited and many prayers have been answered. Thanks to all of you out there for your prayers in the past for Luke's job situation.
Well, we FINALLY got our new car on Thursday night and we absolutly LOVE it!!!! My advice for anyone looking for a new car...look at the Mazda 6. And if you do go by, mention our name!! (had to put in that cheap plug for us!) Here is a picture of the 6...
One of the many awesome things about this car is that we can make it from Edmond to Colorado on one tank of gas!!! How awesome is that!!!
Well, that's all I have for right now, but stay tuned this week to some updates from our trip! Until next time...

Well, here we are again folks. Another 3 month delay! Same song, third verse...work is crazy busy for me right now. I have enough time at night to stalk all of you, but don't have time to blog for myself! :) I have a few minutes before I have to leave for a baby shower so I will update you on what has happened in the wonderful Carnagey world!! All of the new stuff has actually happened in the last 2 weeks. First...we got a new pet that we named after Elizabeth because she was so excited and wanted one too, right Elizabeth?!! Here is a picture of her!
This is not the exact picutre as you can see b/c I can not get the picture off of my phone, but this picture looks alot like her! We found her on our front porch this past week just waiting to get inside! Her stay wasn't long since tarantulas are really not my favorite creatures, so after a little jumping and screaming like girls from my husband and myself, he put it underneath the shed of an abandoned house across the street from the Mullins! Just ask Elizabeth how she is sleeping now after seeing our new pet!! :)
Another new thing we got was a new car! We traded in our Jeep Liberty for a new Mazda 6 which gets twice the gas mileage now! You may ask, why haven't I seen it yet? Well, we are asking the very same question! We bought it over a week ago and still are waiting for the car to come in that we ordered. We called everyday last week and when we asked when it would be here, the answer would be, "Tomorrow." and "tomorrow" came and "tomorrow" went. Supposedly it will be Monday (tomorrow) when we will finally get it. I knew my mom was right when she said never trust a car salesman!! Learned my lesson now!
We have one more new thing going on, but you will have to check back later in the week to find out since it is not final right now!! (I love keeping people in suspense!)
Luke and I will be taking our only vacation this year on Friday!!! It is a surprise 30th Birthday trip for Luke that I have had planned for the last 4 months. I can not give you the details right now since I don't know if any eyes will be looking at this or not, but when we get back, I will post lots of pictures!
Well, it is time for me to go! I hope you all have a great week and I will see most of you on Thursday night for Girls Night!!!! Whoop Whoop!!!! Until next time...
