sweets and sours...

i am sorry that i haven't been a very good blogger the last few weeks! i am trying to get caught up with everything... so here are my sweets and sours!


~the rain was so hard last night that i think an entire tree was demolished in my front yard!

~even with all of our rain... it is nothing compared to what is hitting lousiana right now! kev's sister is there and is doing well so far... just preparing for the worst!

~kevin started a new shift at his job last week... noon to midnight! yuck! i really am not planning on seeing him much anymore! lol! that's too bad, cuz i kinda like him!


~it rained last night/today! i love the rain! it makes me so happy! the cool, cloudy days are the best!

~have you ever tried a frazzil? they are a really wonderful icy drink at most chevron stations! mmmmm! so delicious! the tango mango flavor is my favorite!

~my best friends mom (maryann) and sister (kristine) moved in with us! they just moved here from colorado and are staying with us until they are able to find a home to buy. i am loving having them here! they are hoping they can find a home within their price range soon, but i am in no hurry to have them move out!

~in the process of finding a home, maryann, was looking for a job! she found not one... but two! lol! she just started the first one last night! she is pretty excited! kristine works from home, so she started working a couple of weeks ago.

~ok, as i mentioned before, maryann is looking for a home. well, we started looking for them a week or so before she got here and have gone to look with an amazing realtor a couple times a week for the last 3-4 weeks! we have seen so many houses! some good... some bad... wow! lots of fun places out there!

~last monday my dad turned 60! i was hoping that i could go out and surprise him! but i wasn't able to go! i did call him though! i sure hope he had a good day! i sent him a pretty cool gift! (i will tell you more about it when i know for sure that he got it! ) one of his friends sent him this! i think it is pretty great too! check it out!

~i am really having fun on facebook lately! it has been great to catch up with old friends from all aspects of my life!

~i can't remember if i have admitted this to you yet... but i am addicted to solitaire! i love it! i have to play it every day! at first it was just plain solitaire, but now i am getting hooked on spider solitaire too! its a bit harder, but i sure love the challenge! with spider, i have aced the easy level...i am now working on the intermediate. lol!

~there is going to be a Time Out for Women conference in logan on 9/12-9/13! i am so excited! i have never been to this before and can hardly wait to go! that is my mom's 60th birthday weekend too! so she is going to come up and we are going to go together!

i hope you are all doing well! please comment and tell me the haps in your lives! love ya!

sweets and sours...

i have so many sweets this week! let me share...


* kevin sprained his ankle last week... poor boy! but he is feeling much better now!

* i have not really felt good this last week either... lots of crazy things going on with me! i decided this morning that getting old sucks!

* i have not blogged in a long time... sorry friends!


* saturday we had a yard sale! it was a ton of work... and in the middle of a really busy week, but now its over! we did well! and got rid of a bunch of junk!

* part of my busy week was hosting a bridal shower for a friend from work. she and her fiance met at sam's club and he proposed there too! it was fun! we had a handful of people there from work and some really great (wink wink) gifts!

* BREAKING DAWN is not out! wahoo! i haven't started it yet... but i will soon!

* i love reality tv! and my all time favorite reality show is on! Big Brother! i wait all year for it! i know... probably not the best... but i am allowed a guilty pleasure from time to time! any other BB10 fans out there?

* ok... another reality show i am loving! "So you think you can Dance?" love it! i am thrilled with the final 4! i couldn't have hand picked them any better! i am a huge fan of Joshua and Courtney!

* i love starburst!

* last week for mutual we took the girls up to the temple and had pictures taken in their church clothes. they were so cute! i can't wait to see the pics!

* has anyone heard of CHA CHA? not the dance... but the number you can text any question to? i love it! just text to CHA CHA (242 242) and ask a question. they will research it and respond to your text message. it doesn't cost anything... standard text messaging rates apply... we have asked everything from what is the best bbq sauce, when is jeff going to get married, how to remove pen marks from a microfiber couch to where is the cheapest place to get gas in logan, utah!

well, friends... enjoy your week!
