Bachelor Week

next week I'll be in Utah for work. All week. I'm really excited to see friends and family but NOT excited about the freaking cold weather. Guess I'll have to find non-flip flop shoes to wear.

I'm going alone. Freddie-pants is staying here for school. Usually when I'm gone our house turns into a bachelor pad. The gross kind - not the look-how-cool-my-stuff-is kind.

Please bless he:
  • eats something other than pizza rolls
  • washes the baking sheet between pizza roll meals
  • flushes
  • doesn't deem the week as naked time and therefore leaves clothing allll over the place

  • does his own dishes
  • watches all his boring tv shows, movies, and lame anything so i don't have watch them ever
  • cleans up his nastiness before I get back

  • doesn't "need" anything expensive
  • survives

If you're in AZ please feel free to go play with Fred and check to see if he's still alive...just call ahead.

Things that bug me

**is post is purely venting**
  • the freaking school bus(es) that charge through our complex at 7am. We wake up to their screeching every morning. So every morning I wake up wanting to grab a gun and shooting it's tires out. This also applies to the dude on his motorcycle.

  • housework that never ends. I work from home which means I see it all day but can't exactly take time to clean because hello...I'm working. 'why doesn't your husband help?' good question. He'll "do it tomorrow" (another venting topic in and of itself).

  • the lady upstairs walks as though she's 450lbs. Not okay. It's also not okay to wake up to your "activities" at night. gag.
  • my red face, peeling skin, chappy lips, and breaking hair - thanks accutane (1.5 more months...)
  • having wants that exceed our budget. sure we need to retag our cars but I also neeeed this new program for my cricut, a new golf bag wheeler thing (forgot what they're called), new clothes, decent shoes, decorations, pictures printed, and the list goes on. I'm trying to be content...trying hard...

  • being head over heels for my hubby. why is this a prob? because I'm wrapped around his finger. you want me to make you breakfast? sure...anything for you. in the words of my mother-in-law, "once you do something for them you're screwed". She's right.

But I also have things to love right now:

  • having a great husband even though he sucks at helping around the house

  • my home, family, job, and safety

  • new and old friends

  • white grape crystal light packets

  • Lady Antebellum's new album

  • the fact that I get to see family and friends soon (without paying an arm and a leg!)
  • oh and i just won a free photo session with Cherie Hogan holla....

Hello Old Friend

when we moved from Utah to Arizona we suspended our Direct TV. We did this knowing that once we got to AZ we'd cancel because our contract was up and our new complex would most likely not let us have a dish. So...we suspended the service and got excited about not being attached to the tv (hello...we all know I'm addicted to my shows).

Well, on Monday I realized we had yet to cancel. So I called - and after about 30 minutes of being the mean/disgruntled customer I was beat. The lady informed me that the first guy was stupid when he told me our contract was up - because it wasn't. So...we had to get it again or pay $350 to get out of it.

$350 no thanks. So guess who had Direct TV reinstalled today. Us. and guess who is secretly really excited that DVR is back...ME ME ME!

Bachelor parties anyone??

**But don't worry. We've already promised each other that we'll turn it off and do stuff.

So new AZ friends...we need your help. call us. play with us.

Oh and thanks for the positive comments on my picture below - I still hate it but feel a little better.

I officially became a resident of Arizona. With the ugliest drivers license picture ever - and I don't get a new one until 2050 - I'll be in my 60's.

Feel free to laugh at my nastiness...

I just gagged...

So lately I think in blog. I think about all the things I want to blog about and start 'writing' it in my head. Usually this happens before bed - just after the bejeweled gems fade from my mind but before I fall completely asleep. Because of when this happens...I don't get out of bed to write it down and I promise myself that I'll remember it the next morning.

I never do.

I have lots of post thoughts but they all need accompanying pictures because posts without pictures are lame - so it all boils down to I'm lazy and never have my camera out. Oh and I hate always being the one to take the pictures. I'm vain. I want to be in them.

so this is me - promising to take and to make fred take pictures of me so I can blog about stuff.

I want one

It's no secret that I want a dog. some people it isn't a secret. To others it might be.

So yes. I want a pup. Go ahead and make fun of me but I want a little pooch like a yorkie. One like my friend Sydni's yorkie. Tiny - adorable - not yippy - the perfect apartment dog.

I've wanted one ever since that one time when we had one for 24 hours. We actually had one "in the oven" that we'd be picking up next month but mama yorkie lost them (it was a sad day for me). So now I still really want one and am waiting patiently until the day we find one.

Yeah yeah I know we're young - we're out of town a lot (not anymore) - dogs tie you down - blah blah blah.

I'm thinking we'll start with a dog and work up to kids. So if you like the idea of me having a baby in the future - you won't be mean about me wanting a dog specifically a yorkie.

I'll be catching a chick flick with a new friend, relaxing, hitting up the ikea sale, stopping by Michaels, and maybe even the goodwill. Mostly just getting out of the house and enjoying this gorgeous Arizona weather!

Hopefully I'll get to craft on my new cricut, finish one of my crafty projects and do some laundry too.

What are your plans?

First Day...

(look at that 5th grade cheeser...please note he's not happy with me posting this picture)

Today Fred started golf school
I want to jump and dance and cheer
For the next 16 months he'll be in school
with the exception of a week break at the end of each term

School started at 8
8:01 I got a text saying he'd already got in trouble for the shoes he's wearing
They're just a tiny bit strict on your appearance - BYU type strict
but without taking away your agency
Wahoo for a school he'll love and a quiet house for me!!

New Update: at 11:00 - He came home. crap. it was just orientation so now he's home - the silence is gone.

Hula Skills

Fred's cousins stopped by this week on their way back to Arkansas from California. Fred of course took the opportunity to get Deron and Aletha on the wii. Turned out that they had some mad skills - even if they do look ridiculous!

And I'm Back...

I kind of dropped off the face of the earth for a couple of days. It was nice to work like crazy - catch up on blogs - watch too much Law and Order - and hang out with new friends (and old friends like Natty who stopped by for a visit).

But now I'm back - pumped for 2010.

I feel like its a little late for posting resolutions so I won't but know that ours include stuff like getting back to our pre-marriage weight, taming these eyebrows, wearing shoes other than flip-flops, budgeting like a pro, and many more.

What are your resolutions? And how are you going to keep them? (any tips?)
