[.up and running.]

Now that I have had a few sessions I think I'm ready to announce my new website:)


[.i was blind and now i see.]

A couple of weeks ago some girls from Paces got together and all went to dinner.  We went to Red Robin and seriously all talked for like 3 hours!  I haven't seen a few of those girls forever and I miss how much fun we'd always have!  We'll definitley be planning to have another Paces night!  Also Jacinda, Sarah and I got together and went to Zupas for dinner last week.  It's always so much fun to pretty much laugh for an entire hour.  There is never a dull moment with these two!
.story of our lives.
Hey - I've heard that laughing 15 seconds adds 2 days to your lifespan.
Monday was the official start of training for our half marathon.  Ha.  I thought I had time to train.  Well we will see how this goes!  Monday nights will soon consist of Softball :) Tuesday nights consist of Working - Wednesday nights consist of Young Womens - Mm.. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays I may be able to squeeze in a nice run!
Can I tell you how much this nice weather is killing me!?  And I'm stuck in an office!  Can I please just get out and run!?


Also, went and saw Limitless with the lovely Bradley Cooper the other night.  Loved it.

School is almost over this semester then I only have 21 credit hours left!!!  Ah.  The light at the end of the tunnel is becoming more and more bright!!!


[.let's give it a try.]

I've decided to try my first cleanse.  To me, most cleanses look terrifying and gross.  But this one didn't look too horrible.  I LOVE this blog and everything on it!  Today was my first day.  Day one is half way over and my lunch box is STUFFED with fruit for work tonight!  I'm a little nervous for the all vegetable day.  What do I eat for breakfast?  I guess we'll find out.  Also, I don't like tomatoes.  Day 5 may be the death of me.  But it'll be worth it right?  Apparently we will see next week.


Why can't watermelons be perfect right now!?  I'd kill day 1!


[.I just do what I want. it's not about what people are saying - it's about me.]

So what if I'm a little obsessed.  I take pictures of my pup like he's my child.  But he's so.dang.cute!  Seriously.  Do you blame me!?

Anyway, it's spring break! Finally!  And it's raining!  What kind of spring break is that!?  Oh well, it doesn't really matter anyway because I am working pretty much everyday!  Except for Wednesday Josie and I are going to Park City - I'm a little excited!

Thought these were pretty funny
*so true*

1. i think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

*2. nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realized you're wrong.

3. i totally take back all those times i didn't wan to nap when i was younger.

4. there is a great need for sarcasm font.

*5. how the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. was learning cursive really necessary?

*7. map quest really need to start their directions on #5. i'm pretty sure i know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8.obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. i can't remember the last time i wasn't at least kind of tired.

*10. bad decisions make good stories.

11.  you never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after blue ray?  i don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

13.  i'm always slightly terrified when i exit out of Word and it asks me if i want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that i swear i did not make any changes to.

*14.  "do no machine wash or tumble dry" means i will never wash this...ever.

*15.  i hate when i just miss a call by the last ring (hello? hello?), but when i immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail.  what did you do after i didn't answer? drop the phone and run away?

16. i hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day.  what a waste.

*17. i keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so i know not to answer when they call.

*18. i think the freezer deserves a light as well.

19.  i disagree with kay jewelers.  i would bet on any given friday or saturday night more kisses begin with miller lite than kay.

*20.  i wish google maps had an "avoid ghetto" routing option.

*21.  sometimes, i'll watch a movie that i watched when i was younger and suddenly realize i had no idea what the heck was going on when i first saw it.

*22.  i would rather try to carry 10 over-loaded plastic bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring in my groceries in.

*23. the only time i look forward to a red light is when i'm trying to finish a text.

24.  i have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

*25.  how many times is it appropriate to say "what?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

26.  i love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front.  stay strong, brothers and sister!

27.  shirts get dirty.  underwear gets dirty.  pants?  pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

28.  is it just me or do high school kids get dumber & dumber every year?

*29.  there's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

30.  as a driver i hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian i hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, i always hate bicyclists.

31.  sometimes i'll look at my cell phone 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

32.  even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, pinning the tail on the donkey - but i'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

[.We don't always get what we deserve in life; we get what we believe we deserve.]

Honestly, I loved this weekend!  After class on Friday, Lance and I went to FitLife Wellness Spa and got hour long massages.  We both came out looking so relaxed and both said they were the best massages we've both ever had.  I mean we've only had like 3 or 4 but still.  It was so nice and relaxing!  I did think this was kinda funny though when the lady was trying to relax me by just shaking my body a little bit, and I hear in the room next to me some slapping sound.  The only thing I could do was laugh because I heard my husband getting slapped around by the massage therapist.  Afterward we went home and got dressed up to go the The Charcoal Room Sky Bar for dinner.  Obviously Lance and I don't do a lot of fine dining!  It was a very quiet intimate setting where the lights were very low and soft music was playing. Besides the fact of being totally proper I felt like I had to whisper and almost felt obligated to order some wine or something because lemonade or water just seemed so "not classy".  Our plates were only about 16 inches in circumference!

It was so yummy!  Neither of us even finished our chicken because we were so entirely full!  We went back home and ended our night sleeping through watching Day and Knight.  Couldn't even tell ya how it ended I was so tired!

I honestly don't even know what we did before we had Rudy!  I feel like every extra minute is consumed running after a stolen slipper, playing tug-a-war, shoveling poop, or simpling just snuggling our new child.  I've come to the conclusion that a baby puppy is almost worst than a newborn baby.  Babies you can rock to sleep and sooth them, babies don't steal your homework and take off like a rocket towards the next room, babies poop IN their diaper so there is no guessing where to step, they don't flop around like a spaz whenever you mention the word "dinner".  BUT I have to admit, I absolutely LOVE him!  I love that he snores when he is sleeping on his bed or in our laps, I love that he runs to me saying "MOM!" (or at least that is what I picture him saying haha) the second I walk in the door, and I really do love how flippin' spastic he becomes when it is finally time to eat.  And last but not least I LOVE that he will be the best running buddy I can possibly imagine!  We found a dog park the other day and first thing we did was take Rudy.  (Ya'll better get used to hearing about him, he has become our child.  I talk about him like he's our child, think about how he's feeling during the day, and bring him with us whenever we can.  My friends and I have already  decided we're gonna have puppy dates - yes those are real;) There are some switchbacks up the mountain that lead to this trail!

We've decided once we start training for our half marathon (in like 2 weeks!! eek!) that we will have to run this trail!  It has an awesome view - especially at sunset!  Ah!  Lance and I decided that'll we'll have to go up to this trail one morning before the sun is up at watch the sunrise.  The best way to run - with a good view and lots of time to think and ponder!  The best part about running with a good view is that it becomes a very spiritual experience.  My mind just gets racing about everything and it makes the run just fly by. We also saw some cute little picnic areas that would be perfect for a  couple of couples to have a small fire (if it's legal) and watch the stars.  Can you tell I'm anxious for summer!?!  Well I am. 

One. Because it'll be warm. 

Two. Because we won't have to wait for the snow plow if we don't want to FLOOR it to get up the hill to our house. 

Three. Because I'm dying to lay out! 

And four. Just because.


i want this.  badly.
