Goodbye for now

We are heading out of town tomorrow. St George Utah. My parents, my brother and his family and us. 11 people in all. For a whole week. We are planning to visit Bryce Canyon, the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, and a few things in between. Be back in a week.

Spring is coming and She

Can you feel it?


...does what she wants.

...doesn't mind being the Guinea pig for her brother's inventions.
(yes, that is my Mother's Day swing that a certain dog destroyed. i just haven't been able to part with it yet.)

...just had to have her hair curly.

...wanted her friends to watch a movie with her. my baby, my princess, my girl. emily, ems, sissy, emmers, princess grace, sister, emily gracey, sis.

...sweet, stubborn, giving, going non stop, mischievious, not afraid of much, a tom boy. all ours.

March 10

First of all I'm cold. I'm tired of being cold. I've been cold since October. Isn't that long enough?

Taylor had his first football game on Saturday. They won 32-6. He's not quite as aggressive as he's been in the past so we'll see how he does this season. It's entertaining to watch. And cold. 8:30 on a Saturday morning is a little much when the wind is blowing and it's freezing.

The prospectors gathered at the hot springs again last Saturday for some digging. I went more for the warm water. The gold is just a perk. That many hours in water is taking a toll on my skin though. Itchy itchy.

I found some summer music. Love her voice. And this one with Jason Mraz. Lovin it.

Rob tried his hand at barbecuing salmon on Sunday. I don't like salmon but it wasn't terrible. If he did the same thing with a fish I liked I might actually enjoy it.

Bunko was yesterday. I didn't win. Again. I love going though. I probably say it every month but it's true. We have lots of laughs and get some girl talk in while we carpool. Love my carpooling girls.

I got some really great news Sunday. One of my very best friends is moving back here after a looooong two years in Arizona. We have been friends for 21 years. Wow! That's a long time. We parted ways for a while but came back like we'd only been away for a week. I am thrilled! Ecstatic! Overjoyed! She'll be here by the summer and I can hardly wait!

I got some fabulous deals at Dillard's. Their winter stuff was on clearance for 70% off and it was an extra 40% off of that. Total steals. I got two bags stuffed full for $99. Not bad.

Rob and I went to a Stampede game. His boss rented a box and had the evening catered. Good food, meeting Rob's co-workers, some time spent with TJ and Aubrey that we don't often get and...oh yeah...a basketball game.

I also snagged some great deals at Walgreens. I was telling Rob about them and started laughing because it's so ridiculous. So here's the deal:
8 bars Dove soap
1 Axe shampoo
1 Colgate Max toothpaste
1 bottle Migraine medicine
2 jars green olives(yum!)
6 packages peeps
minus coupons for
minus rebates of
minus register rewards for soap and toothpaste
minus rest of gift card from last round of rebates
my grand out of pocket total was $1.16. For almost $35 worth of stuff. Crazy. I've also been snagging some great deals at Albertsons. I don't know why but I get such a kick out of this. I added a new link to the left for coupons and deals. She is local so everything she talks about is relevant to me. Makes it nice to have someone do all the hard stuff.
