A Garden Adventure… The Cute, The Hot & The Ugly

A Garden Adventure… The Cute, The Hot & The Ugly

I went to Curves this morning and came home hoping to crash…. well, I barely had time for a “break” when I walked back down the hall and there was my sweet puppy looking at me… with those puppy eyes…. (Please ignore the ugly couches… the dark denim slipcovers are downstairs in the pile we call Mt Grotegut. Don’t worry… they will come back up on Sunday evening when we fold laundry while watching a movie and the living room…

I Need YOU!

I Need YOU!

Erin needs YOU!!! I would like to find a new digital “point and shoot” small camera. I have a wonderful dSLR Canon Rebel, but sometimes it is just too bulky and cumbersome to lug around (like amusement parks, restaurants, work parties, and other places where you want something that you can slip in a pocket.)  We went to Lagoon this past Saturday and it was a pain in the bum hauling around the big camera… plus you can’t take it…

Bracelets and Friends

Bracelets and Friends

Do you ever have days/weeks/months where you feel like this? Seriously… July has been INSANE. Anyway. Brent is at city council tonight and I don’t have ANYTHING (no meetings, chores – but not because they aren’t there, no ailments, etc) else going on for a change so I thought I’d blog a little. Today I got to hang out for a few hours with one of my best friends. Janeen & Andy lived across the street into the house that…

Pool Fun… Digi Pages

Pool Fun… Digi Pages

So while my sister and her family were here earlier this month (and I was COMPLETELY M.I.A from the computer) we did a LOT of fun stuff! This was the kids’ first visit to Utah (Auntie Erin’s dog lady house with Sadie) and Ryan and Liz’s first visit back in at least 4 years. One day we spent the afternoon at our city pool. The pool was completed and opened last summer and it is an AWESOME pool. (I do…

Flying By…

Flying By…

Can something both feel like it’s flying by and dragging bootay at the same time? If so, that’s how JULY has felt. I got online tonight and looked at my blog. 2 posts. 2 lousy posts. July has been PACKED. We’ve had company here and lots n lots going on, some fun news, our 10th anniversary, yard work, gardening, and health issues, etc, etc…. I have even done a bit of crafting but haven’t felt up to sitting down to…

I’m Not Quite Dead Yet…

I’m Not Quite Dead Yet…

Can you name that movie? Really, I promise I have not died or dropped off the face of the planet. It’s just been an insanely busy couple of weeks. Here, I will show you. This has been what’s kept me away from the computer for the past little while. My sis and her family (dh, b/g 3 yr old twins and 4 mo old baby) came out to visit us for a week. (I spent several days prior to the…

Life Is Just A Bowl of Cherries

Life Is Just A Bowl of Cherries

So it’s FINALLY beginning to look like SUMMER here in Utah. We’ve had a constant stream of rainy days (no pun intended) and it’s finally warming up. Please don’t read any complaints in there about the rain. Where I live in Utah is a mountain desert… we are a dry desert up in the mountains and all moisture is appreciated, but this June seemed particularly abundant in moisture. We lived in our house for 8 years now. (Erin trivia: 3.5…
