Last Weekend Before School

This last weekend we decided to head down to see our families before Paul started back up with school. Our first stop was to Paul's parents house. They have a Nintendo WII, need I say more. I LOVE it. I have never really been a fan of video games. My thumb-eye coordination is off and I have seen a lot of people who have gotten stuck playing and never been able to pull them selves away since. There was even an article in the Ensign about young men who chose not to go on missions because they could not walk away. HOW SAD. Anyways, back to the point. I am one of those who leans with the video game because somewhere in the back of my mind I think if I can play it out in real life it will help me in the game. I like the WII because it has games, like Resort, where leaning really does help you play. I can get my whole body behind it and actually do pretty darn good. So we spent Friday night playing the WII with his family.

My grandma had the monthly family dinner on Saturday this weekend and we were told there was going to be a slip and slide. Of course Paul and I packed our suites and came prepared. my niece and nephew were sick so they did not come but my cousins and their kids came. Then my Aunt and Uncle got out there with us. It was a blast. I woke up the next couple of mornings so sore that I had to roll off the side of the bed because my abs hurt and I could not flex them to sit up. I joke with my mom that we do these crazy things to stay the favorite Aunt and Uncle. It is a lot of hard work and a bit painful at times, but oh so worth it.





Now For Sale

I designed this for Paul's mom as a Christmas gift. Since I put it on my blog there have been a number of people that have wanted one. A friend of mine suggest that I set up an ETSY account to sell my stuff. Up until then I had not even heard of ETSY so I checked it out and decided that it would be a great place to sell my prints. Visit it again, I'm hoping to have more stuff up later.

Happy shopping.



Just For Fun

These are a couple of videos that have been sent to me, I thought I would share.



Happy Anniversary

Today was our third anniversary. It is hard to believe that we have been married for three years. In this time I have graduated with two Bachelors and Paul is almost done with his schooling here at USU. We were both able to help in the design of the 50th Robbins Awards.

This year instead of taking a trip we bought a dog. He is a full bread miniature Schnauzer. The name we went with is Bentley. He is three months old now and he has a brown streak of hair from his head to tail. It is crazy how much he has grown in the last couple of months. Bentley has so many fun personality traits. We LOVE the little guy.

This last weekend while my sister and her kids were here my nephew tried to ride Bentley like he rides my brothers Airedale. It did not really work the same way, we all looked over and Bentley was squished under him whimpering. It is great when my nephew gets with Bentley, they both wear each other down.



Bucket List

Over the past couple of years while I have been in school there was not a lot of time to keep up on some of the things I wanted to do for fun. There is a shelf full of books down stairs that I wanted to read but knew as soon as the cover was cracked my time would be taken up with projects to work on.

I have started a blog about the BUCKET LIST of BOOKS that I want to read or books that others suggested to me. Feel free to read along, or ahead as the case may be, and leave me your comments. I would love to hear from you.



Guilty Pleasure

I really am not one for reality TV shows. Especially The Bachelor and shows like that, I just do not see how people think they can fall in love with someone when they are living a fairytale. There is nothing about real life in these shows. Anyways I don't want to get to off topic.
Over the summer I have been watching America's Got Talent. As always there are some that are pretty bad but there are some that are just amazing. For instance there is the Chicken Catcher, just looking at him and listening to him talk you would never guess what he can do.

Some of these kids and the stuff that they can do is great. I'm not too interested in voting but I will watch because by the end of the show I have a smile on my face. I have found that the best way for me to watch is by using the DVR. I can come into the show 45 minutes late and then just fast forward through the commercials so I can just watch the performances. I LOVE the DVR.
