another birthday. another brunette

it's funny, the more i blog, the more i want to blog, the less i blog, the more it becomes a dad gum chore. so as of right now, i'm on the blogging kick-and just can't get enough of it. so....ladies and gents, here's another post for ya.

this weekend was brad's cute neice's birthday. bree turned 4 and had more gifts than i've gotten on all my christmas's put together. i guess those are some of the benefits of being the oldest. it was fun, but i can honestly say, the adults had more fun with her toys than she actually did. i'm sure she loves them, but man, we sure couldn't get enough.

and last but not least, me and brad were going over our moneys and decided the "high-lighting" of the hair was just way too much money for us to throw out. so....i had to go with the natural color (even though she did it a little darker than what i asked) and had to put an end to the high-lighting days, which i used more for an excuse just to get my hair washed. so here is a picture of the change.

oh, and that random picture i threw in there of my dad and rob.....just had to take a picture of the glorious goodness from lether-butt's. (also known as letherby's)

can't help but come to the conclusion once again, that life is dang good.

Beautiful Moab

took a quick family getaway to moab for the weekend with the brothers and the parents. i'm literally flabbergasted that this was the first time i went down. it was beautiful! it rained quite a bit, so i can't even imagine how fun it would have been without the rain. thanks ma and pa for the awesome time-it was a fantastic getaway!

(we hiked up to the very top of this mountain and it was thundering/lightning/raining so hard the entire time. when we got to the very top my hair started raising-so instead of sprinting down the mountain before i got struck, we thought it best to, of course not only sit and laugh at my hair which i'm sure meant the electricity was about to strike my head at any moment, but to hike up some more so all of our hair could raise. and yes, i'm fully aware at how large my forehead is.)

A Happy Mother's Day Indeed

I can't help but feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I couldn't possibly ask for more.
Thank you moms for being all that is needed to have a life this full.

Birthday Saga


We had a little birthday bash at the Elder's Saturday night for Lisa and Scott. It was one heck of a party. We of course had the old traditional cake and ice-cream, but Lisa's cake sure as heck wasn't traditional. It was INCREDIBLE! Props for all her baking/cooking. she was born with an insane gift of being able to whip up anything. When I picture celestial glory I picture me eating a 21 course meal that Lisa has prepared for me. Of course I highly doubt that's what her celestial glory looks like.
After din we headed out back for some mallow roasting and "around the fire" gabbing-something that I live for. We just sat around the fire and talked till we laughed, and laughed till we peed into the late night. I can honestly say there was about 4 times during that night that I almost peed I was laughing so hard. ....(sigh) is good. Unfortunately for Scott-I got a picture of one of us laughing till we peed. jokes, but we wanted to see how many mallows Scott could put in his mouth-we were all just rolling when marshmallows started coming out his nose-and of course the drool helped us laugh even harder.
