Mom and dad can we live with you!?

It's darn near official....Mike and I are moving in with his parents!
Travis and Jill (our AMAZING landlords) posted our place on KSL classifieds Monday night,
Tuesday night 2 showings and interest is high. The wife of one of the viewers is coming tomorrow
morning and after she is sold on it they will sign the contract to move in...in 2 WEEKS.
So forgive us if we miss skip out on blogging over the next few weeks, lots of boxing up to do!

To answer any questions as to why...No I'm not pregnant but would like to start soon....and we can get Mikey thru a lot more schooling if we can save up on some rent for a bit so that's our plan. We are very lucky to be able to move in with his parents. I have the best in-laws ever, I am a very blessed girl!

If anything changes we'll keep you posted but like I said, it's darn near official and I don't even have one box packed and just like my family would say..."we have a lot of S***!"

February Catch Up!

The beginning of February was started with a wonderful weekend in St. George! Aaaah it was the little slice of heaven Mike and I both needed, especially for the events that were about to take place, out of our control....for the most part!

My niece Tessa and Pierce both had birthdays while we were in St. George, thus the reason we went. Tessa is now 1 going on about 8 months until she decides to beef up here long slender arms and legs. (That's right baby girl you eat that cuppie cake, you let it go straight to your thighs!)

Pierce is now 4 and he had an Indoor Beach Party for his birthday, what a treat that was! ALOOOOHA!!!
Along with about 6 other 3 and 4 old boys he play pin the sunglasses on the sun, decorated sun visors, and did the limbo, Mike and I were in charge of holding the limbo bar! Travis and Louise always do a swell job with theme parties!

We were also fortunate enough to go watch Q-Dogg in his basketball game. Good little baller that boy is, just look at him hustle! Gooo Q-Dogg! (I don't remember the score but we do know his team won!!)

Audrey was just a good big sister this weekend helping out with both birthdays and cheering on Quinn! Sadly...no picture of just Audrey this trip but we have one with her in it!

After church that Sunday Mike and I went on our own adventure. We had never hiked around the Red Rocks, so that we did! We had such a wonderful time!

The temps were perfect with blue skies and it was very hard to come back home to snow...we'll be sure to return there more and perhaps in a few years move there :)

Upon our return we were off to a great week, then BAM an accident in the kitchen! Mikey was just being ever so fun with me, tickling me while I had to go to potty, fun I know! I was wearing socks and lost my balance slipping my feet right out from under me slamming my head on the kitchen floor. A huge goose egg quickly appeared and Mikey was no longer laughing, no was It was quite painful and I had a messed up neck for a good week. Just as I'm starting to feel better from that I got hit with a horrible cold and missing 3 days of work. Missing work is only fun when you have fun plans and you feel good but when you are down with a cold and you can't even sleep, missing work and the funny people there, NOT so much fun. I'm still getting over my cold, in doing so I have passed it along to my dear hubby who has taken awesome care of me over the past couple of weeks! We both made breakfast for each other on Valentines morning and had a nice dinner with my family. We were both feeling pretty crappy thru the weekend and today we both had the day off. SO that is why it's been a few weeks since our last update. Here's wishing everyone a lovely rest of February and good health! We will do our best to update more often :)

Have a happy day!

Did you hear?...

I know, I know. I'm a huge nerd. Now that that is out of the way....So I was listening to the Enid Greene show on KSL Newsradio on Saturday and decided to call in and make a comment. Here is my call...

Now, she was on a hard break and I was not able to get my full point across. But in essence, I was going to continue talking about socialism. What's coming next? Universal Health Care? If the government can tell these CEO's that they can only make a certain amount of money, what's gonna stop the government from telling us we can't have any pizza or french fries when they control our health care? All in all, I don't think the CEO's of failing companies should be making the outrageous salaries they are making and getting the bonus' they are getting when their companies are in the crapper. But is this the way to go about it? I'm still mulling it over. Your thoughts?
