Glitter Toes

So last night my friends came over for a girls night and we did facials and painted our toe nails with glitter! They are so cute, I feel like I have mermaid piggies! It is so funny to me that such a simple thing of painting your toenails can make you feel so special. Love girl time!! Thanks Danielle and Kim for helping me eat all those chocolate donuts and chip dip and for making me feel so good!

Sleep has been evasive lately, for the last few months really. This isn't Jaylie's doing although she does contribute. Our mattress is on its last leg so we went looking for a new one. We quickly learned that comfort comes with a dollar sign. But isn't that how it is with everything? Quality=quantity$$. I am just frustrated about everything lately, probably due to lack of sleep, possibly due to lack of privacy as well. Roommates are never EASY to live with, but perhaps less easy when you are married and have children. Or when they are your parents-in-law. *sigh* It really was easier living with siblings, probably because siblings don't care where you are, what you are doing or what you spend your money on. At least we know we are well loved. Ok, I am done venting for now.

Lopez Island

Camping the Smart way

Our squirrel catching, hiking, fishing adventures with our friends the Smarts.

We went to 7 peaks, stayed with grandparents, and just had a grand ole time!

Utah Visit My Family

We had fun staying with my mom for two weeks. I think Jaylie and I contracted the swine flu while we were there, just so we could "fit in", of course. Miss you mom!

Time... whats that?

I have been too busy to upload my pictures from my camera and organize them to put on my blog. I am doing my homework as much as possible to get done and get a job. I feel like Dorothy in the land of Oz, not knowing where home is. Someday Josh and I will have a place of our own, thus the homework. I try to not write anything on my blog that would potentially offend someone, but I say forget it. Don't read it if you don't like it. COMMUNICATE PEOPLE! So many issues would not even be issues if people would just clearly state what they expect! High five to me and Josh (yes I am patting me on the back, and no my arm doesn't hurt) for getting past all that crap and for being able to tell each other how we really feel. Life is so much simpler, I wish other people would figure it out so we didn't have to deal with their issues. Also, can I just say that I hate being treated like a child? Thank heavens I have a financial specialist (not really) to tell me how to budget and that I need to cut back on all my spending so I can be more responsible. Oh and to check up on me and Josh late at night when we are hanging out with friends. Ok, I'll get off my soap box. Thank you to the Smarts for being such amazing friends! We had so much fun with you and the family. You sure make leaving Utah hard. I will get pictures up sometime, no promise that it will be soon.
