This is currently how I feel right now...

Why? Because I did NOT get enough sleep last night. And it is a lot easier to be happy when you wake up on your own, and not by something else. My only saving grace right now, is that Bubba is still sleeping. THANKFULLY. Hopefully the day gets better...

Friday Night Confessions

And we're off!
  • It is after 1 in the morning, and I am still considering it Friday night and not Saturday morning. Haha.
  • Watched "Nights In Rodanthe" tonight with my mom, sister, and aunts. Didn't care so much for the movie, but the company was fantastic!
  • I REALLY don't understand why Bubba has to still be awake at this time! He fell asleep for the car ride home, and it was like he got his second wind. I'm ready for bed!! He has also been waking up in the middle of the night to snuggle. Don't get me wrong, I love to snuggle him..but why at 5 in the morning?
  • I really really really at this moment want to go out and buy a pair of shoes. A cute pair of shoes that will work well for a night out on the town, or a day with friends. Either way...I really want a pair of shoes.
  • I want to go on vacation. Even if it is a weekend to Salt Lake. I actually really want to fly on a plane somewhere far away. I really want to visit the East Coast again. I loved it out there and am dying to go back!
  • I know I have mentioned this one before, but I really love Olive Garden. We went there tonight for our Girls Night Out and it was SOOO yummy! Even if it took FOREVER to get out food because our waiter was new!
  • I have NEVER driven a stick shift! Never even attempted to. The closest I have come to that was with a motorcycle (Thanks Aaron!) but even that isn't the same! I don't think I ever want to try to drive one either. They just sound scary.

Ok, I think I am going to end with that for tonight. So good night and enjoy!

Silly Kid

I don't have a lot to blog about right now...but here are a few pictures of my silly boy and what he has been up to. He enjoys eating my camera strap apparently. And whenever I take a picture of him, he tries to see it on the back of my camera. Haha.

And in this picture..he doesn't look like a baby anymore..he looks like a growing up little boy. Phooey.

And I guess I do have more to blog about, according to my mother. So I will think of ways to post about them, and post. Haha.

Haha...Friday Night Confessions...

Yeah, so I was talking to someone, and was informed that I forgot to post these last night! Haha, I had completely forgotten. Good grief! So without further explanation here they are...
  • I really don't like winter. It is too cold and wet. I prefer the dry, warmer weather of summer in Utah. And year round in California, Hawaii, etc.
  • I really want to move out of the state of Utah. I don't know why, but I want to move. I think that we are at a point where we would do better as a little family if we were to move away and be by ourselves.
  • The thought of moving out of the state of Utah scares the crap out of me. I don't think I could be away from my family...
  • I want to re-do my wedding. There are a lot of things that I would have done different. Don't get me wrong, I loved my wedding...but there are a lot of things I wish I insisted on and did.
  • My sister got an iTouch, and I am madly in love with it. Haha. I try to convince her to leave it with me, just so I can play with it. And now I want one of my own, so that I don't have to bother asking her for it.
  • Along with that, I am obsessed with electronics. Computers, cameras, phones, any electronic device I want a piece of. Yeah, I know, I'm sad.
  • I absolutely LOVE my parents ward. And I am so excited to be a part of their ward again. Out of all the wards I have ever lived in, this is my favorite, and part of me never wants to leave it.
  • I am currently watching Bubba try to climb underneath the couch. I wonder how long it will take to realize that he is NOT going to fit in that 1'' opening. Haha Silly boy.

Alright...there you are! They are all updated. I will try to do better next week.

I want to post. But everything I want to post involves posting pictures with it! But...for some strange reason, it isn't letting me post any pictures to my blog! ARGH!!! So I am waiting for it to be figured out. I have a lot of pictures to post from Easter, and just in general. But alas...they will have to wait.

This is what I have been waiting for. Ugh.

Friday Night Confessions

I am actually doing them on time this week. Haha..fancy that!
  • Sometimes, I wish that I could go back to High School and redo a lot of things! One would be to get better grades my 10th grade year. I didn't focus too much, and I wish that I did. I would also go through and not worry so much about what other people thought of me. I spend a lot of days hiding away from everyone in High School. I wish I would have stepped out of my comfort zone more. I would have gotten contacts earlier. They are AWESOME.
  • I want to learn how to knit. I knew how when I was younger, but I wish I knew how to do it again. I would try to make more things. Along with that...
  • I want to learn how to make cakes. Wedding cakes, fancy cakes, whatever. I wish I knew how to do the fondant, the decorations, the whole bit. I think it would be fun.
  • I really, really, really, REALLY do not like going to the dentist. I don't like the smell of the office, I don't like the sound of the drill, I don't like the taste of everything. Whenever I go in, I get so nervous I just about make myself sick. Then I have to fight everything in me to not run away. Because trust me. I want to. I will deal with teeth pain for as long as I possibly can before I go to the dentist.
  • I love macaroni with tomatoes in it. I just finished 2 bowls of it, and I loved it. Do you hear that? That is my stomach saying it is very pleased. :-)
  • I don't know how I am going to survive when Sam and I move out of my parents house. I have become far to dependant on them.
  • Worms gross me out. This was re-discovered this afternoon when Bubba was outside. It rained yesterday, so a lot of worms were close to the surface. My mom and brother were digging through the dirt planting flowers, and they found this ginormous worm! Seriously, biggest worm I have ever seen, and it automatically set off my gag reflexes. And not just that, but Bubba HELD the worm! EEEWWWWW!

I will end this with a picture of the aforementioned worm. Feel free to gag.

This is what I saw the other day. I had to take a picture, even though my insides twisted and turned in the process. So I took the picture, loaded it to my computer...and have now sat and stared at the picture, wondering what I could do about it. My conclusion?
So here is the picture that makes goosepimples raise up and down my arms, and makes me want to run for cover under the kitchen table...

Creepy isn't it? And yet oddly fascinating. Really makes you think about the wonders of the eyeball. But seriously...put the shades back on. ;-) I thought that if I changed the picture to Black and White, that it would make it better...
I was mistaken.
This is what your eye looks like after having lasik type surgery on it. They dialate it. SO I guess this is what BOTH eyes look like after having your eyes dialated at the doctor's office, but I have never really seen one at a time.
(and yes, I do have permission to use these photos on my blog. They were taken with the knowledge that this is where they would end up. Lol)

The Scowl, and birthday photos..

This last week we went up to Logan to celebrate Bubba's 1st birthday. I can't believe he is 1 still! Anyway, we had a little party up there with family and friends. Thank you all SO much for a wonderful time! Here are the details!

Here we are singing happy birthday. He doesn't look too sure of the thing on fire in front of him...
Such a pretty princess. Seriously, a DOLL. I love her.

Three of my nieces hamming it up for the camera. They are best of friends!
Uncle Theron, and my nephew playing the piano

My wonderful friend Tana, and her sweetheart of a daughter! Thanks guys!
The three of us at his birthday. The front of him is a mess!

Here is bubba with his new favorite toy...a squirtbottle. Seriously LOVES it. He will bring it up to you and open his mouth because he wants you to squirt it in his mouth. Haha. (Oh, and THAT my friends is his scowl...)

A picture of Bubba and I taken today. Why? Just because. We don't get enough photos of us together.
Yeah...his scowl again. Like I said...a mean looking scowl!
There you have it. Some pictures, since I know my blog has been lacking. Enjoy!

Friday Night Confessions..Saturday morning

Yeah, I forgot that yesterday was Friday...sorry about that. So I will get right to it!!
  • I love General Conference weekend. It always makes me feel like I need to be better, but it also gives me strength to try and be better.
  • I am not as strong as everyone thinks I am.
  • Bubba has learned to scowl. And it is a MEAN looking scowl! And I can't help but everytime I see it..I laugh. It's awful. But he scowls at everything! If you tell him no, or don't do what he wants you to. He will stare you down with the scowl. Silly boy.
  • I let what other people do effect me too much. Or I rely on other people too much. Whichever way you want to look at it. I need to just be happy with myself, but it's hard.
  • I still hold out hope that I will get pregnant on our own. I don't know why, but I still think we are going to someday.
  • I spoil Hunter. I can't deny it anymore. It's a fact. He is one spoiled little kid, and I am starting to see the effects of spoiling a child. Haha
  • I cry a lot. Not a lot of people see it, or know about that one. But I do.

Ok, there you go! Enjoy.

Woo Hoo!!

I don't know why I get such a thrill out of this, but I do. I love to save money on grocery stuff. I would like to thank my friend Brandie for getting me motivated to shop with coupons again. I went out today, and tried it out. Man, I missed this! So now I am going to try and do better at it! Hopefully I can stay pretty organized and on top of everything. Haha. So this is what I did today.. I went to Albertsons. They have a sale on Post Cereals. I was going to take a picture of it...but I forgot and I put it all away already but this is what I got.

12 boxes of random Post Cereal
3 Hunts Spaghetti Sauce
5 Chef Boyardee Ravioli
2 Hunts Snack Pack Pudding packs

Not a whole lot, but here are the numbers:

Retail amount for above: 77.14
Total Out of Pocket Expense: 17.20

WOW!! In my second transaction, I spent $0.70 on SIX boxes of cereal!!! That is about $0.12 a BOX. And they are good cereals, like Post Raisen Bran, Honey Bunches of Oats, and yummy stuff! I was ecstatic! I am going to to back tomorrow and hopefully get more, but we will see!

Let's hope I can get back into this..I LOVE it!
