I like your beard.

Simple Summer Update.

Summer has been..... decent so far.

First of all, I need to say how happy I am that the great Taneil Wilson lives with me now :D She is SO entertaining and awesome. I can't help but smile and laugh when she is around. I heart her.

I turned 28 last month..... ew. But it WAS the best birthday I think I've ever had! Taneil, Sarah P. and I drove down to Idaho to visit Josh and Kenny and it was a FABULOUS trip! It was all very.... Idaho. We went camping Friday night, made dutch oven potatoes, roasted starburst over a fire, almost got stuck in the mud.. awesome. Saturday we went to Logan to this really neat outdoor art fair. Josh had a painting on display and someone totally bought it :) That night we went to a demolition derby!! So hick, but so awesome! Sunday we went to church in Josh's ward, and he happened to give a talk that day. That afternoon we went to see his dad's fox/mink farm. I had no idea that foxes make crow-like noises. Kinda freaked me out but it was pretty hilarious to see Sarah shed tears once she realized what the farm was for! All in all, a great weekend, and it was SO great to see Josh and Kenny. Plus, Chris and Mike came down from Rexburg for a bit so it was fun to see them too. Taneil and I might go back later next month... we'll see. I also want to go to BC for a couple days, so we'll see what ends up happening.

Work is going well. I work with a few pretty cool peeps who make it interesting ;) I don't have to close at ALL this month, so I'm hoping that I will be able to find many adventures to go on.
However, I'm trying to save my money so I can go home for a visit in August. By then, my lightly-toasted niece will be born (aka little mixie) and I can't wait to be an aunt :)

BSB next month!!!! I'm going to ANOTHER Backstreet Boys concert August 8th in calgary :) I'm going with Taneil and Jessica. We scored 6th row floor seats! I'll finally get to see them the way I was always meant to see them :)

Oh. So I heard that it takes 30 days to break a bad habit and I'm putting this to the test. I've already broken the habit of biting my nails. It's only taken me a lifetime to do this, and I finally have! It's kinda hard to believe actually. I keep waking up in the morning afraid that I may have bitten them all off in my sleep or something, but I never do! They're beautiful :) Also, I'm working on the caffeine habit. I finally admitted to myself that I actually am addicted, and I have the headaches to prove it. I'm trying to wean (sp?) myself off of it because when I go cold turkey, I get bad headaches and get super cranky. But I'm doing pretty well. Today is day 2 without ANY caffeine. I figure if I cut it out completely while at work, that'll be half the battle. I have one or two other things that I'm working on, and so far so good.

Well this post is over. Not because I have nothing more to say, but because I really have to pee. (I've replaced pop with water and my bladder has definitely noticed...)
