I can't believe you're already over. It seems like just yesterday that I typed out my vow, tightly closed my eyes, and hit the post button. But I did it and for the most part I was able to blog every. single. day.
I hope to keep up the good work (especially with the internet now available at my house) and blog more much much more.

We haven't had the internet at our house since we've lived here. Mostly because its expensive and where I sit at a desk all day and Fred was usually at school it didn't matter that we didn't have it. Now that Summer has hit and Fred isn't at school and I'm not enthused to stay at work any longer than I have to...it's been painful NOT having it at home.
I'm happy to announce that our good friends Blake and Aubrei have finally moved over by us again (they use to live below us) and we get to share their internet again! YAY!
This is hardly worthy of a blog post but I'm pretty darn excited.
**does this give me additional brownie points for blogging everyday without the internet at my house?**

I'd love to grow tomatoes. and flowers. but that's about it.
As it's come time to decide where to plant things - we've reached the decision that really...we have no where. Our townhouse is in the shade most the day and the soil that we have in the front in just below the roof that has NO rain gutter. So when it does rain the plants below get trashed with lots of water. The soil in the backyard is again very shaded, and mossy. it stays pretty damp back there.
My parents suggested growing tomatoes in a pot which i think would work if we can figure out where in our yard gets the best sunlight.
hopefully I'll try my hand at gardening. If it doesn't work I'll just steal from my dad's amazing garden...but don't tell.
Do you garden??

next time the hubby is going to play golf with friends and suggests you come with him to spend time together politely decline. Your presence makes him play crappy which invokes 4-letter words, and nine holes takes a lot longer when you're on the cart "hanging out".
Be smart and go do something else.

Male with self-proclaimed "neat freak" qualities, excellent cooking skills, small but existent romantic bone, and hand holder has been missing for almost two years. Whether his identity was stolen or his abilities were dissolved is yet to be determined.

On my list so far is:
-Go to bear lake at least once
-get a raspberry shake at bear lake
-run as many 5k's as possible
-BBQ BBQ BBQ
-grow something (what is yet to be determined)
-learn something new
-play night games
What are you excited for this summer?

Emily and I went to Scottsdale one day and while we were there we stopped by to see my oldest friend Ashley and her super cute fam. It's still crazy to me that she's a mom. With two kids. I still don't think we're old enough for that! I still remember running through the sprinklers in my front yard and looking for treasure across the creek with her.
We also went to Bahama Bucks on our last day - afterward I hated Emily a little for not taking me every day. I love snow cones and these ones are JUST like my most favorite shack ever in Moab.
Why am I not talking about Fred? Oh that's because he was golfing the ENTIRE vacation. Weird I know. Since I'm the one that actually takes pictures he doesn't have anything to show for it minus his new love for AZ courses, a speeding ticket, and a dark farmers tan.
But this is how he rode the last two hours of the trip. He had to get a club out and hold it when we left my parents. To which my dad shook his head and accurately called him "pathetic". What have I gotten myself into?
We also hung out with this crazy kid all weekend. He's stinkin' cute.
Fred and I concluded that driving through the night is MUCH better than driving 12 hours during the day. When we finally got home I felt like we'd been driving for days. Yuck!
We had the perfect escape to AZ! Thanks Emily and Darrin for letting us crash at your house and for entertaining us the entire time!

We love you Nancy & Laura - we appreciate everything you've done and currently do. Thank you so much!
Happy Mothers Day to all you mothers, grandmothers, and soon-to-be momma's out there!

Last night we went to Darrin's baseball game. I had the brilliant idea of doing jumping pictures off the baseballs...yeah well...Darrin and I did it and well while landing on your feet isn't hard...it was for me. I landed right on my butt. Epic Fail.
the only thing injured was my ego.

Tonight we had an amazing thunderstorm. I ran out and danced in the ran a bit, had Fred take a jumping picture, and then quickly jumped in the car so I wouldn't be totally drenched!
I love thunderstorms they remind me of when I was little and my family would sit out on our front porch watching the lightening and listening to the thunder. What a good day...I hear the whole week is supposed to be like this! Can't wait!

It's day two. What have I done! I'm already struggling! I have a ton of blog ideas but I'm posting at my second job Planet Beach (yes...we're closed) so I'm unable to post pictures that go along with the blog posts I've thought of. This will have to do.
Here's a tidbit for those who don't know me too well...(yet). I work at Planet Beach Contempo Spa as a second job not only for a little extra spending moola but also so I can tan and look hot. Whether I tan often enough to claim this is a different story. crap. I will, however, be taking full advantage of this place in the next couple days before heading to sunny Arizona on Tuesday. (Em- can I use your Internet to keep up with this goal I have? and what? this tan? no...it's all natural. I was born this way. (hair flip) )
side note: Planet Beach is amazing. Stop by if you have one by you. It's NOT a tanning salon. There is tons of amazing spa equipment too.
Please note: upon searching for images with the keyword "lame" - this one pops up. AWESOME.
Tomorrow there will be pictures and excellent* reading material.
*excellent is a term used loosely. whether or not you walk away with a feeling of 'excellentness' or satisfaction based upon excellentness is contingent upon your beliefs, attitudes, and cool factor. author is not held accountable.

Okay here goes. I'm going to say it. For the month of May I vow to blog EVERY day.
As for topics I have no idea and there might be some about me posts, gripe posts, random thought posts, but hopefully somewhere in the middle of the posts will be something that makes you laugh, tell your friends, or something to uplift you.
