Deep*ish* Thoughts

We went to the ground breaking last night and the kids loved it. Who am I kidding? I loved it. It is amazing the see the growth in this area. The best part, for me, was looking around and recognizing so many people. We have lived in 4 different wards in this stake and Jeremy grew up here so we know a few people. The tight knit feel of this community is something I haven't really experienced before and it never ceases to amazes me. It's humbling to know how many people are really concerned for our family's well being. I can't tell you how many different people asked about the job search last night. Even a member of the Stake Presidency had some contacts/advice for us. And it's not because we are of high importance around here, it's just because we live in place where people are still down to earth and friendly.

So hurry up and find us job, we don't ever want to leave this little place we call home.

This may not be of interest to anyone reading...

but when has that ever stopped me before?

Did you know that there is an earring lost and found in the temple? {I noticed since I had to wait around for approximately 17 minutes waiting for two different people to exit my locker space. Why do I always pick THAT locker?} As I was saying... I didn't have much else to do besides eavs drop on a few conversations and check out the earring selection while I waited so I chose to focus on the latter.

As I was staring at those earrings, for nearly a quarter of an hour mind you, I noticed that the earring selection didn't contain just singlets waiting to be claimed, there were also pairs! And darn cute pairs at that. I wonder what becomes of those earrings who never find their rightful home. Do you think they go to DI after a certain waiting period? And do you think I could put a request in? "Hey when you send those to DI will you put them on hold for me. Here, let me give you my name and number."

Like I said, it was a long wait.

I don't mean to be lame,

but most days I just can't help it.

This blog has obviously fallen by the wayside in the last few weeks. My half-hearted attempts to keep it afloat with YouTube videos has failed miserably. Shocking.

See, the thing is I just haven't been in the mood to blog. I had a few crazy weeks, a crappy few days, and NO good blog ideas in between. So there you go.

However, I'm good now. I have a fabulous family, great friends, and a better grasp on mental stability. Problem is I still have no good blog ideas. I KNOW RIGHT? I have plenty of updates for the family blog that are hanging over my head, but in the way of this blog I'm devoid of any creativity, and therein lies the problem.

So any good ideas for me? Like, a good post you'd like to see, a pressing question you'd like answered, a fortune forecast. Don't even start laughing. I posted a picture of Tiff pregnant and look. I'm totally taking credit. But really, hit me with your best shot and maybe we'll have a chance at saving this blog.

Who's that Girl?

We rented the movie Annie thinking Brynnlee would love it, and she did.
So I dug out this old picture knowing she would love it even more. This is my sister, Aunt Alicia, looking quite the part.
This picture just cracks me up everytime.

YouTube is my friend

Back to back video posts....
I know I've gotta be breaking some kind of cardinal rule of blogging.
