Only 25 days...

December is here, and that means Christmas is right around the corner. It also means I have to start my Christmas shopping...But I probably won't for about 23 more days. I cant tell you how much I love driving around and seeing all of the houses with trees lit up in the window. Im going to try and get my tree up...I bought everything for it and now Im just driving Adam nuts to have some nook or cranny for me to put it.

Sick as a dog...

Im so sick and the only thing that sounds good to me is a greasy cupcake from wal-mart...For those of you who are are questioning my judgment, hear me out. Let me let you in on a secret, here's what you do.

1. Go to the wal-mart bakery
2. Find the white cupcakes (wal-mart brand) with white frosting
3. Find the freshest date on the package ( this may require you to dig deep into the cooler but believe me when I say it will be well worth it)
4. Take them home and let them sit until they are at room temperature.

I cant tell you what a dream come true they are for me...Even In my sickest hour I can always find a place in my heart for them...

P.S. I do not condone shopping at the wal-mart due to the devastating toll it is taking on our country...However a delightful capcake every now and then is O.K. (or so I have told my self)

Time to kill...

So, I officially put my 2 weeks in down at the Nordstrom today...It was sad for me but a much needed decision. I have been working for Nordstrom for over 3 1/2 years so I must admit it has kind of become part of my life. It will be so weird not to go there everyday and I will miss so many of the people I work with, they kind of become your family. I have sooo much to do on our house that a moment will not be spared and Im going to be going home for a long Christmas brake. I have also taken up oil painting ( I have always done watercolors in the past) so Im sure I will be doing much more of that and the idea of going to the gym (which I would never normally even think of doing) has even crossed my mind a time or two. I am afraid my closet is going to take this the hardest, I haven't broken it to her yet...Im not quite sure how.

O.K. Im officially starting my Christmas countdown...So, only 29 more days to go! (less than a month)

I'm back...

Im back from my nice and long vacation. On Wednesday Adam and I drove to Yuba City, but we only stayed until Tuesday...Which was not even close to being long enough. Then on Tuesday night we went up to Adam's family cabin in his car (he and his friends go every year at this time and drive through about a million feet of snow up hill in the middle of the mountains, and that's very fun for them.) The next morning we woke up and drove to Adams brothers house for thanksgiving with his family in Idaho. ALL of his family was there and we all stayed at his brothers so it was quite the party. It was fun though... We went to Jackson Hole, relaxed, went and saw a few movies...Including the new 007 which usually is not something I would normally like, but it was sooo good...Sarah and I gushed about it, and the new Bond was not that shabby. We just got home tonight and Im staying up at Amy's house to to take care of her and Estee (they are both sick) while Chris is gone late. Tomorrow Amy and I are going shopping for our Christmas decorations for our house. Im doing a tree even though my house is still a construction zone, I love Christmas too much not to. I cant tell you how excited I am for Christmas this year, its all I can think about lately. Anyway, I have tons of photos to blog, now I just need to find my cord or some way to get them on someone's computer. So for now, these are some photos from San Diego in September.

No place like home...

Im home!!! Adam and drove to Yuba City and it was the best thing EVER! I cant tell you how good it feels to be in my home that I grew up in. The drive was even fun because I was able to spend 10 hours in the car with Adam. It was nice to just sit and talk with him. IM IN HEAVEN!

I have the Sundays....

Im sick and blue. Thought I would post some old photos. The first one is Adam and I at lunch with pookie and Amy awhile ago (when I cut bangs?). The second one is the family up at Adam's cabin in Lake Creek. The third one is of a very pretty girl you don't usually get to see on this side of the camera, and I miss her! The fourth is of us in San Diego for Thomas and Jessica's wedding in January.

Sodies on my mind....


So, I have been off the sodies now for about six months, and I am still craving them like a meth head in a darkened ally. Here is my question...Should I still be off them if I have seen no significant difference what so ever? This my friends is my question for you???

So I know my mom posted this but I felt like I needed to post it also. (Im not sure why) So, not much has been going on, just work, we are in a sale right now, and that's about it. Our house is coming along (not fast enough) but coming along. Some A-hole parked in our driveway and for some reason it ticked me off (they flock like fleas when there is a B.Y.U. game, we live by the stadium). Im like that lady in "friends with money", taking life's frustrations out on others. Anyway, I wanted to leave a note on their car but I chickened out and tried to make Adam do it but he wouldn't either...So I let them get away with it...THIS TIME. It was so nice yesterday, like 74 degrees but today it was 37...Awesome. The only good thing about that is it means Christmas is coming!!! Im going through a rough patch right now, I think its my living situation and all, but Im very lucky to have a wonderful husband who I know loves me and a perfect family. Sorry my blog sucks!

Sad today...

I miss...
My daddy and his pink shirt he use to ware for me
smelling dinner when I got home from school
the smell of fall in Yuba City
Grandpa getting my gizzle
grandma's stories
Walker telling me how ugly I am
Mark telling me how cool he is
vegetables on the doorstep
sharing a room with Amy
icecream sodas
staying home sick from school
being snug-as-a-bug
waiting for the hetherington's to get to grandma's
picking up walnuts

I think its because I haven't been home in so long and I don't have a space of my own right now, that I am so home sick I cant think about anything else...I want to be in my HOME, walk in and know that when Im in THIS PLACE I don't have a worry in the world...

Frustration in general...

Life is a *$!@& at times, but I guess things are sweeter when you have been through not so easy things...And I mean this in a lot of aspects of my life right now. Election time is upon us and all I ask is that those of you who are voting (and I hope that is everyone that looks at this blog) takes the time to research and study who and what they are voting for! O.K. That's all I will say about that.
Anyway, Adam and I sat around today and I loved every second of it, he works so hard and I don't get to just hang out with him as much as I wish I could. I love him, he's very sweet you know.

Trouble with my microchip...

I am having a bit of a mental melt down...I have more photos than you could shake a stick at but I cant blog them because...Well because I use to just stick that microchip thingy from my camera into my printer and than it went right on to my computer. My problem is that I have moved into my in-laws house for a while (until our house is done) and I have NO clue how to work things in general. So, I will just tell you what has been going on. I wish I could post photos of Adam last night...Maybe I will see if Amy will post some for me...Anyway, Adam and I dressed up as each other and I dolled him up, and Im afraid he may be twice the woman I am. He looked hilarious. It is so hard on holidays to be away from my family, it sucks. For some reason my mind has not yet realized that I am a permanent Utah resident...I still feel like Im "away at collage" (even though we know if that were the case I would have been back home after about a semester) and it hits me sometimes and it brakes my heart. It is not how I thought things would be at all, but I do love Adam and you do what you have to sometimes. I called my Dad and tried to talk him into moving to Utah and that went over like a poke in the eye with a stick!!! Our house is coming along and I am getting so excited to move in....BUT it has been so hard to do this project, picking everything out for your house is not easy when everything you manage to pick out somehow ends up being the most expensive, but we are working it out. Adam has not stopped working on the house, he is working so hard so we can get in ASAP! Well, that is pretty much it I will post some photos soon enough...p.s. Can you say I love New York???
