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...)


  1. Keep up the good work. I'm looking forward to your visit. do you have a date in mind? I have to be in Niagara Falls on the last weekend of the August since all the sisters are going to be there. I'm sure we can work it into your visit though.

  2. You are amazing! I just wish you lived closer... I that I did. How far are you from Chicago? :) I do think you took that pic in Lyon... but I don't know who took that pic of all three of us on that plastic couch. Crazy. All the plastic furniture in front of the court house on the way to Miriam's... good times :) I love you! By the way, I noticed in my wedding scrapbook, that BOTH of my sisters-in-law wore white... not just you! You matched, got the memo. Thanks again for coming!!
