27th of December

I have decided to post 27 randoms in celebration of this, the 27th day of December, the day I have finally updated the blogster.

27. I have a love/hate relationship being back in Vegas. I love it! Then I hate it.

26. I love it more!
25. We dont have to use the GPS when driving around! Its kind of nice for a change. You actually get to sit in silence (if you so choose) without having to listen to the GPS saying..recalculating.... ..recalculating or "when possible...make a U-turn." annoying.

24. I didn't return a single thing I got for Christmas.

23. Neither did Matt. Perhaps it's because we picked most of our own gifts? Haha!

22. I will never stop shopping at Nordstrom.

21. I love what I do.

20. Went on a date night last night to In'N'Out and then saw Blindside.

19. Have never been more inspired.

18. I cant wait for March.

17. I need to stop in at Lulu Lemon and thank the regional manager for helping Matt pick out the cutest stuff for me!
16. Cant seem to find an amazing pair of black boots anywhere.

15. Have been laughing out loud reading peoples blogs/facebook posts.

14. Love love love boyfriend jeans with boots.

13. I just stalled for a I really finally posting? Perhaps I will be able to sleep peacefully tonight!

12. I can now look back and laugh. Remember the time....?

11. I am so proud of my husband. Everytime I look over at him, I feel so lucky! He is wonderful.
10. I seriously love my customers.

9. I love it when Matt carries my purse. I love that he laughs when people say something about it because to me, he is just drop dead sexy.

8. I talked to the cutest little four year old boy today at Church who told me what he got for Christmas. In the same sentence he mentioned that he got a train with a bridge, toys, and that he was four years old. I now want a little boy more than ever.

7. I have no doubt that we are going to find the perfect home in Mountains Edge.

6. This is a fact...Rockie, our male chihuahua, is a thinker. No matter what Matt says, Rockie is not slow.

5. Love the name Lucy. We are naming our first daughter that. Lucy Kate. I want to call her "Elle" for short.

4. Talked to my grandma who lives in Ukraine. I realized I must have sounded "retarded" for lack of a better term since I could only utter "Very Good" and "I love you very much" in between which my mom had to translate everything else.

3. I was whitening my teeth the other day and felt a burning sensation. I removed the tray and revealed my newly-dyed white gums. Within five minutes, they were back to normal and I layed off the bleaching kit for a couple of days.

2.5 I currently have the bleaching trays in my mouth.

2. I cant wait until I have spare time to Volunteer at Ronald McDonald again.

1. I have been planning. Planning for our future house. Planning for our future family. Planning for the future....only to realize that I need to stop planning so much and learn to live in "day-tight compartments."

Going back to post 20... Have you guys seen Blindside? I dont think I have ever been more inspired in a movie. I was moved. I left the movie theater feeling like a different person. I want to be Sandra Bullock in the movie. I want to be able to do what she did for Michael. Sandra Bullock was outstanding. SJ was the funniest little kid. I want one just like him. Blindside is a movie we are adding to our collection without a doubt. I feel as though it has changed my whole outlook on life.

Not Counting Sheep

Its 12:17 am and I am blog stalking. Why? Because its like one of my favorite past times. I'm obsessed. I go from one blog to another and on to another, etc. I just click on the names of couples that look good and go on from there. It's kind of like a triathlon. You never know where you will get to although you start and lets face it, you never planned on finishing in the first place. Sometimes you even surprise yourself because through the tangled web of couples, babies, families, might actually find someone 10 people down the line that you know! Tada!! Although perhaps I need to calm down my obsession because there is a certain couple whose blog I frequently check because they are so dang cute and I just cant help it!! Anyway...when I was working at the Nordstrom in Provo.. they actually came into my department. I got kind of excited and almost started waving at them as they look over at me. Yes, almost. Therefore.. I have come to the conclusion that I am stopping. (maybe)
Admit do it too!!!

50% Complete

We all have areas of our lives that we tend to slack on. One of my personal downfalls is the blog. Why can I not bring myself to post on this frequently? Perhaps I feel that Facebook is so much more simple? But yet it isn't much more simple than the good ole blogster here. So this leaves me in deep reflection.

Perhaps I am just not a blogger?

But I would feel incomplete without a blog!

Perhaps I am just lazy?

To this I have no rebuttal.

My number one fan and lover is gone until the 24th and I am counting down the days. This has been the longest we have ever been apart and I miss him terribly already. I dropped him off at the airport at 7am yesterday morning and as I left the airport, I felt only 50% complete.

Love you my handsome husband!!

Hello LOVER!

Our dogs eat the most random things. From lettuce to carrots to apples to bananas. They enjoy strawberries, celery, garlic, and as pictured above...ONION!

I flew into Vegas for a couple of days for this couples beautiful wedding! Congrats Reggie and Linda!
The blushing bride and I. Linda couldn't have been more beautiful!!
Guess what? We've packed up and left town! That's right! Cross country...we drove....and 1600 miles later...made a pit stop in good ole Denver!
Matt always talks about living here one day. You know what? I wouldn't hate it!
Matt's grandpa took us to a Broncos game! For those of you that dont know my husband obession with the Broncos...he is a BIG FAN! The game was awesome! Althought...I must was difficult keeping track of who to cheer for because the opposing team, the Bears, were decked out in navy and orange as well! There were times when I started cheering only to realize that I was cheering for the wrong team!
We watched this guy get booed over...and over...and over! It was intense! Lets hope he is happy!

The view from the 6th row is amazing!

Grandma and Grandpa! We love you guys! We also got to visit our other grandparents; Grandpa and Grandma Wonderly! We love you guys!!

Monday morning we drove the 750 miles to Vegas. We passed through Utah and saw the fires! We stopped in St. George to gas up and there were ashes blowing around us! CRAZY!
Our new home!! Irvine, California!! We LOVE IT!
Newport Beach

I need help!!

Things that I would love to know how to do...

- Add videos to this blog from youtube

- Save videos from YouTube to my computer

- Burn DVDs on my laptop

- Copy my friends carrot cake recipe so that the carrot cake tastes JUST LIKE hers

...You know what? On second thought, scratch the last one. That carrot cake recipe had an encounter that I never...I repeat...never want to experience again. Lets just say that I woke up in the middle of the night feeling nauseated. Enough said.

As far as the other three....ANYONE?? HELP!!

Our Top 20 in the Last 20 Days

Found a beautiful state park right by where we live! I'm not much of a nature girl therefore I tend to stay away from hiking, camping, etc. However, this park is somewhat of an Enchanted Forest complete with a lake, canoe rentals, and a remarkable view at sunset. The only downfall of this gorgeous little get-away is the fact that this forest, I presume, is packed with ticks. Every time I feel an itch on my leg, I scream that I indeed have a tick on me.

We heart the view of the lake from the trail!
Stopped to take a couple of pictures. Matt keeps pointing out that every picture of us looks exactly the same ...just different clothes. Its always me that holds the camera and snaps the picture. How else are we going to capture pictures of ourselves? There are only so many places to leave a camera propped up and the self-timer on! Haha
Captured a be-eau-ti-ful view of the lake!

Straddled a bridge and overcame my feat of heights!
Watched the sunset.
Found buried treasure. (or just minnows)
Watched the turtles poke their little heads out of the water only to quickly disappear as soon as they spotted you!
Played fetch with Remington.

Tried to keep Rockie from jumping into the Lake after Remington.
Only to have given in to the temptation of throwing him in.
Went to a museum and attended a "Meet the Animals" class where this guy whipped out a baby alligator out of a cooler. Only in North Carolina...
Celebrated our 3 Year Anniversary!! Posed hungrily as we waited for our 4-course meal to begin!
Posed with cheesy smiles after our cheese fondue!
Posed again, just like in the other park picture as we ventured back to the park yesterday!

Captured more scenic shots of the lake.
Explored the bridge.
Tried throwing Rockie back into the lake. Watched the sunset..
