Conversation Starters

I got tagged like two weeks after having Ella for a MeMe. The MeMe where you tell 50 things about yourself. Yeah, it didn't happen.

But let me give you something else sorta similar. If I happen see you sometime in real life (or in the land of internets) here are some conversation starters. You may want me to expound on these, thus starting up a fantastic conversation. Or not. Whatever.

:: my parents are moving to UT from NM. yes, that was the big Mother's Day news of a few weeks ago.

:: i was sick with the flu last week and didn't eat for like two days yet gained 5 lbs.... very perplexing (not to mention distressing) to me.

:: kaden's graduating from preschool and can't wait to start kindergarten. he keeps forgetting about the 2+ months of summer we've got to plow through in the meantime

:: ella is trying desperately to avoid my attempts at forcing her to learn to crawl. she's winning, so far.

:: brynnlee loves trying to ride her "big girl bike". thank you craigslist. a cheap bike and no one was murdered during the pickup. can't ask for a better transaction, can ya?

:: my brother interviewed with a company here. we'll hear about the possible move in the next few weeks. can't wait.

:: got a letter in the mail letting us know our old neighbor in Idaho passed away and left us $28,000. timing couldn't be better.

Yeah, I lied on one. And I bet you are totally stumped as to which, or not.

Hey! I'm just trying to be cleaver, funny, and entertaining. I make no guarantees as to the success of living up to these ridiculously high expectations I set for myself.

9 Years and holding

Jeremy & Heather
May 19, 2000

We've been up, we've been down, and all things in between... but it's been fun and for the most part entertaining, like the time you skipped church, got a ticket, and stuck it in the hymnal for me to find? Awesome.

Our life is far from picture perfect. We've taken some unconventional routes, and we may be far from what some people deem as successful but we've found plenty of joy in the journey. We have a long way to go, but look at how far we have already come. I can't think of anyone I'd rather be cleaning up pukey kids, sheets, and beds with at 2:24 am the morning of our anniversary.
Here's to us....
and the life we've created thus far.

{our perfectly imperfect family, this sums it all up}

I Love You, Jer!

A Sprinkling of Activity

*Ok, I've officially declared laziness a vice. I boxed up those shoes, processed my return online and then headed to the post office.

*I returned one Mother's Day gift due to defectiveness, and now I've discovered I have to return the other due to wrong-colorness.

*I rented my first movie from Redbox yesterday. It took like 8 minutes but I got it done. So glad no one was in line behind me.

*T-ball season is winding down. I'm feeling happy, yet very sad. I love watching my kids play sports, but hate choosing ..... dinner at 4:15 or 7:45?

*My family gave me crazy news on Sunday when I called for Mother's Day. I'd share it but I'm not sure if I'm supposed to...

*I sure could use some Cafe Rio right about now. Anyone want to make a trip up from UT?

Laziness: Virture or Vice?

I consider myself pretty laid back, that's basically a nice way to say LAZY. So in order to stay true to that awesome character trait I'm offering this up on my blog.

I purchased these from last week (size 7).

I wear a size 6 1/2 but they only come in whole sizes so I went up not wanting to have flip flop overhang, I really hate that. Wrong choice, shoulda gone down. So I could package these babies back up and do a return, but that would involve some work. So I'm gonna see if I can get any takers here first, ya know, cuz it's easier. Anyone want to grab these for a mere $20?

Would You Rather...

You know that fun game you play "Would You Rather"? I've got a great one for you! Here goes.

"Would you rather be woken up at 4am by your baby or by your husband?"

Although I have been complaining the last 7 months about Ella waking up constantly I totally would have taken that last night over Jeremy waking me up by saying "I think someone just broke into the Explorer."

Yep, they did. And they bolted with my precious iPod/iTrip as we headed down the stairs. So after the police were called and filed their report it was a while before I could fall back asleep. Beware because the police got a call similar to ours last night just about a mile away. Ugh. On the positive side...

* I followed the prompting to bring my wallet in from the car last night
* I cleaned the car out yesterday, so they didn't make off with our dirty laundry from our trip
* Jeremy woke up before they could nab anything else

Kaden has been asking all morning if the police have caught the bad guys yet. He face looked like I felt when I told him they most likely wouldn't find the bad guys, sheer disappointment.

Primary is Entertainment

"What does a man have to hold to be able to baptize?" says the chorister.

"The organic preisthood." says one child.

"The ironic preisthood." says another.

I'm sure my contorted face and inability to supress my laughter behind the piano gave it away.
