Good intentions?

I was going to do yoga during Parker's nap. Instead, I ate two pieces of cake.

Life Update

  • We have been landscaping our yard for the last couple of weekends. I am completely sick of picking up rocks.
  • We should be able to close on our house this Wednesday!! and move in Thursday!!!!!!!!
{This is the most current pic I have of the house, but it is done now!}
  • Matt and I just got back from a rained out Youth Conference. We were the goodly parents of 9 teenagers. If you thought it was cold last weekend in the Salt Lake valley, it was really cold up in the Uintahs.
  • For the three months we lived in the Bluffdale First Ward, we were both called to be on the activities committee, substitute primary teachers, and asked to go to Youth Conference. Plus, as a parting gift, they asked us to speak in sacrament meeting last Sunday. I don't know why they decided to pick on us...Maybe because my dad is the ward clerk...perhaps he had something to do with it.
  • Matt and I are running the Ragnar Wasatch Back this weekend. A team of 12 runs from Logan to Park City (188 miles).
  • Matt just graduated from the University of Phoenix with his bachelor degree in Accounting. Yay!!
  • He was accepted to the Weber State MBA program and will be starting this fall.
  • Matt is training for the Ragnar relay race. Matt will be running three legs that equal 18 miles. And he will be doing it in these bad boys:
{these are not Matt's feet, but they are his funny-looking shoes}

  • I finished up the school year with AMES and I'm not sure what I'll be doing next year.
  • I've gained 7 lbs living at my parents house. Good thing I'm moving this week.
  • I decided last minute to join Matt's Ragnar team. I will be running a total of 13 miles as runner #4 (hopefully I don't die mid-stride). I haven't run much since the Marathon in September. In fact, I will only have 1 1/2 weeks of training for this weekend. Fortunately, it is one of the easiest legs.
  • Basketball was so last month. Now, it's all about baseball.
  • Parker LOVES to sing. He sings Hallelujah, ABCs, and his very first original song. It goes like this: mama (high), dada (low), mama (high), dada (low)
  • He love the alphabet almost as much as he loves sports. Every time we drive anywhere and he sees building signs, he starts pointing at the letters and saying "A, O, B.."

A New Addition

This must be the year of love because there is another marriage in my family. Not only is my brother Casey engaged, but my sister-in-law Rachel just got married! Her new husband, Spencer, is great. She deserves to be treated well and Spencer is just the guy to get that job done. Welcome to the family Spencer!

They let me take their pictures, so be sure to check them out at and let me know what you think. I love feedback.
