We are really behind this season, but we finally got our tree up today.

And that is the extent of our Christmas decorations. Super exciting, I know.

I just downloaded Poladroid and I am having a lot of fun with it.

Puerto Rico post coming soon, but I need a few days to recover first :)

This is the route we take to get to our hotel room.

This is the vehicle that takes us.

The Simple Things

After an extra long day at work (and a migraine), I find the really simple things send me into hysterical giggle fits:

I realize that this is not the first Spongebob video clip I've posted on here. Deal with it.

I've performed minor surgery on Moose a few dozen times, but I think this injury is going to require a butt-cheek transplant and skin graft.

Dear Predictive Text,

I assure you I meant to type Netflix and not Negroid.

Please don't let it happen again,

Today I ran 5 miles in 55 minutes and finally acheived a total weight loss of 5 pounds.

In other news I made (and threw out) parsnip soup for the first (and the last) time. My iPhone case has started pulling up the shield. And we leave for Puerto Rico in 22 days.

My inner-child demands PB&J for lunch on a regular basis. The only difference between now and 20 years ago is that the PB is organic and the J is sugar-free and the bread is whole wheat. Sadly I don't think that is enough to make it a sophisticated choice.

I think our Halloween party was a success, we had quite a variety of characters.

Made By Myself

I made this headband the other night and hated it.
When I woke up this morning it was cute, so I decided to wear it.
Maybe its just me, but fabric flowers are a pain in the BUTT! It took so much fabric glue to make this I was far past high from the fumes by the time I finished.

This is Guster

(actually its a picture of another Guster that I googled because I'm too lazy and its too cold to go outside).

Guster is currently on The List. His 'Fuel Pump Module' had to be replaced, which is apparently a big deal. A $777 big deal. After being fixed, Guster makes weird noises. Noises like the fan working extra card when the car is idle, or it whistles when I push on the gas. So help me Guster, if I have to fix something else, you are gone! The big question is, do I trust Guster to drive me thru the canyon in the maybe snow tomorrow?

Uranium.... Bombs

I have no idea why but this song has been in my head for about 6 days now.

Friday, October 22, 2010


Due to some unfortunate events, I managed to delete my blogger account and a few other things. Thank goodness another email had admin rights, but for now the blog will be plain and ugly while I try and figure a few things out. :(

6 months.... and counting.

Dear House,

Although the last 2.5 years have been awesome, we are ready to move on. No really, it would be great if you could just get someone to buy you. I had hoped 6 months would have at least an offer, but no. Although we really enjoy your great location and our newly finished front room, we really can't afford to keep living here if the Husband loses his job. Could you please make a little more effort?

2 more weeks!

Only 2 weeks until my little brother comes home from his mission. We are pretty excited!

Skippyjon Jones

So Lacy had mentioned this book to me awhile ago. I saw it in a Bookstore today and remembered how freaking awesome it is.

Skippyjon Jones is a siamese cat who decides he is actually a chihuahua. It is pretty hilarious and I love how random it is. Kudos.

While this is a cheesy version, and the accent is not nearly as good as when I read it, I think it will suffice.

Gee, Thanks!

Hotmail just complimented me. I wish I was as accomplished in my housework.

One Day

One day, I may have a kid. Just so I can dress them in this. Not just for a Halloween costume mind you, this thing has Sacrament Meeting written all over it.

In case you ever wondered who makes bathroom stalls & accessories, I can tell you. Hiney Hiders. Thats all, I had a chuckle in the bathroom today.

The Tenth Incarnation of the Doctor

Even though Dalan and I are probably the only 2 people I know that actually watch Dr. Who, Dalan really wants to be the Tenth incarnation of The Doctor for Halloween.

I'm a really big fan of David Tennant, and especially his hot suit. The problem is, where do you find a suit like this?

While you would think a brown pin-stripe suit would suffice, not for my stubborn husband. His suit has to have the royal blue stripes, no exceptions!

We found this suit that is actually named the Tennant Suit. $525 is a little steep for my pockets (Dalan is actually trying to justify it though).

Also in my search I found this blog dedicated to David Tennant's suit. The author actually has 5 other blogs about different incarnations of The Doctor and another blog about David Tennant's Coat.

Oh wait, did I forget to mention the coat? This thing is a beauty

Oh, and that thing in his hand is a sonic screwdriver, long story. Don't worry I've got it covered.

Anyway, back to the blogs, this guy features dopplegangers, fabrics, and fanatics. The author and his wife dress up and have photoshoots as The Doctor and Rose Tyler. He has actually documented every tie from every episode and where to get it. I really envy the amount of time some people have, and their ability to make money off of things like this :)

So far it doesn't seem that a month is going to be long enough to meet all of the Husband's costume demands. Hopefully my mad search engine skills can accomplish more

On the bright side, I did find some glasses..... I guess we'll keep looking.

If you happen to come across a brown and blue pin-stripe 3 piece suit, let me know.

Cute or Creepy

Fun fact about Ashley. I collect nativities. A coworker brought this to my attention today, and I really really want it!

Those are Fisher Price Little People, so cute! My husband, however, has labeled this 'creepy' and 'wrong'. Is he right, or just a fun-sucker?

Bio Bay

So we are leaving for Puerto Rico in just 60 days! It to FOREVER to get here. Especially since I started looking for plane tickets back in January. There are a lot of things I'm excited for, our cruise has so many different excursions, but I just can't pick! The thing I think I'm the most stoked for right now though is kayaking through the Bioluminescent Bay in Fajardo. The water seriously glows in the dark!

Its filled with billions of tiny micro-organisms that glow like fireflies when the water is disturbed.

In other news my brother comes home in 29 days! Wow, the last few weeks have flown by. I'm sorry if I'm a little giddy the next time you see me. I know its completely out of character, but I have some awesome stuff coming up!

Halloween costume inspiration:

Now I just have to get Dalan a Waldo costume and Scout a Woof costume and we are set for Halloween!

It may sound like an overstatement, but I am absolutely in love with this machine.

I'm just on day 1 with it, but I ran for 65 minutes straight and I feel awesome. Going about 15 minutes on a treadmill makes me pray for a serious injury so I can go to the hospital instead of run.

This is the embarrassing post where I put some actuals (gasp) out there so I'm accountable for some results. I weighed myself about 3 weeks ago and came in @ 128. I started a eat healthier/work out program 1 week ago. I now weigh 126. My goal is to be somewhere between 115 and 120 in 2 months. I also want to be more muscular through the leg, buttock, and tummy areas.

So, this is how I'm going to do it:

1. Work out @ least 5 days a week. The Fieldhouse is about 10 feet from my office, so going right after work isn't a problem. I've got the Netflix app on my iPod now so I can watch shows while I'm working out. (The music thing just doesn't do it for me).

2. Eat healthier. I'm not going to call this 'diet' or say that I'm cutting anything out completely. I just end up frustrated and binging when I try too hard. I'm planning a weekly menu every Saturday (hopefully based around our Bountiful Basket). I'm not counting calories, but just trying to limit how many times we eat out (this makes our bank accounts happy too).

3. Drink lots of water. This is sooooo hard for me. Water tastes metallic and I have a hard time swallowing it. I've got my pink lemonade mix-ins and I'm going to increase this intake gradually. Right now I'm at about 40oz without trying. I'm going to try and be to 64oz in 2 weeks. The more water I drink, the less room I have for diet coke.

4. Pack healthy snacks. I usually just eat food because its there. Leaving a cluster of grapes or a handful of bran crackers on my desk keeps my mind away from all of the yummy peanut butter m&ms that are just a few steps away.

Well, there you have it. Probably more information than you ever needed to know about me, but I really want some results this time!

1 Year Old

My baby just turned 1. I vow to never ever ever breed a dog ever again. Delivering the puppies was absolutely traumatic. Our original plan was to sell all of them, but we had to fight so hard to keep Scout alive I couldn't bring myself to sell her.
She has the sweetest face ever, even when she is covered in paint and spackle.

I even love her crooked ears.

This is a video from when she was a puppy, probably the cutest puppy ever.

Even though she is itchy and not very smart we still love her lots!

Squishy & Stealy

So I stole this from Lacy.

Because I liked it.

Too much time

With Husband back in school, I need to find worthwhile things to occupy my time.
Like this:


Anyone who can think of a game where you launch birds into pig fortresses is an absolute genius.
Now that I've beat Angry Birds, its time to move on. To this:

I think its time well spent.

Sunday Accessory

We just started selling these at my work. Since we have no children (and I obviously have to buy it), it looks like I'll have a new scripture case to take to Relief Society.

You can also get it a Deseret Book, I really liked their description:

"Scripture power has never been so much fun! These stylishly adorable tin scripture totes are sure to start a new fashion trend in your ward. And since they're large enough to fit all four standard works with room to spare, you'll be able to free up some room in your own overstuffed church bag. The sturdy design is a perfect way to protect your child's scriptures."

So watch out NL6. It looks like a new fashion trend is heading your way.

I'm going thru a purple phase.

FYI ModBe swimsuits are 60% off. I thought this was a great deal and ordered myself the eggplant one.

Only 100 days until Puerto Rico! Guess I'm now set in the swim department.

To support Dalan returning to school (and my crazy internet addiction), we decided to purchase a second computer. I think it was a great decision, but its still a little awkward to be in the same room and not speaking while we work on our separate projects. Its also pretty weird for Dalan to be studying every night. I spent 3 hours working on a cub scout tracking spread sheet last night because I was so bored. Yes, I am awesome. The only bad part is, to be the supportive wife, I let Dalan have the new computer (also, desk space was total drama). My 20" computer is looking pretty shabby now.

I keep glancing over my shoulder and sighing with envy @ the 27" monster behind me.
I believe we have to name them now, referring to "the computer" isn't good enough anymore. Any amazing name suggestions?
