Beach Days

We spent our first day in California at the beach, of course! My experience with the ocean is, well, limited to say the least and was pummeled for hours as we played in the water. It was a B-E-A-utiful day, though, and we got nice sunburns as evidence. Now, if only my sunburns would turn brown afterwards instead of going back to white! I think I'm the only person in the world that spends an entire week in the sun and comes away without a tan. Life of a redhead, I suppose!

Laying on a king size bed in the GORGEOUS Sandy Eggo as I watch my precious hubby sleep I can't help but be grateful for my life. Is it perfect? No. My feet are currently turning into icicles and I ate too much so my stomach hurts. But hey, we have air conditioning that we don't have to pay for and I GOURDED myself on incredible pasta tonight. I'm married to this hilarious, crazy, but way too cool for me guy with perfect hair and the facial hair of a thirty five year old man. I start a new job that I prayed insanely hard for next Tuesday and Matt's health is improving. To top it all off, we went to the zoo today and he let me sit and watch the leopards play for over twenty minutes! He's going to have a huge mansion in heaven with a firepole and trampoline room for that. Life is good. Life is crazy. Life is delishes!

What delishesness is happening in your life?

day 3: the twilight zone.

Things that make me squirm, squeal, and squiggle? I don't know what another good sq word is... hmmm...
Anyway, let's see here:

  • bugs. I hate them. I hate thinking about them, looking at them, hearing stories about them. They are the freaking bane of my existence. My hubby hub decided to "save" a beetle from certain death while we were hiking on Saturday using the bottom of my water bottle and I refused to speak to him for at least 20 seconds. I was furious! Under no circumstances should there be physical contact with creatures. Ever. 

  • long toenails. Cut them before they cut you... or me which is really the gross part.

  • this:

or this:

Being pregnant is seriously this great wonderful miracle, and I know this from watching my sisters go through it, but really, I don't need to see your stomach. Will I want to hold what comes out of it when that time arrives? Uh, yes, but until then let's keep things covered.

P.S. Nothing against women that do have pregnancy pictures taken. In fact, I do believe it can be done tastefully and beautifully; I'm just kind of terrified of exposed pregnancy bellies.

Day two- educate

This was tricky! I haven't made a successful batch of cookies since I was 13, I still haven't mastered the art of applying makeup and would rather eat 13 worms than teach someone how to craft. However, there is one thing that I can do and it requires little more than hair and an elastic. I like to call it The Fountain. It's been referred to as The Waterfall and the Whale Spout, but something about The Fountain just makes my heart happy. I started it as soon as my hair was long enough and I can't give it up! I was top knottin' it before top knots had been named.

*due to my lack of camera skills we will do this presentation with the help of my good friend Facebook*

Start here:

Then move to this:

This was girl's camp. Like I said, I've been doing this forever.

End with this:

day one- greetings

I got this from this lady and I've really been trying to convince myself not to do it, but quite frankly my husband is snoring in the other room and we don't have tv.

I was born July 31, 1992 in the heart of happy valley, ut. I consider my childhood a happy one filled with Barbies, imagination and bad haircuts. December 27, 2005 my BFF was in a car accident that left both of us with permanent scars. I wouldn't go back to junior high if someone drug me along by my ears threatening to kill all the cats in the world. By the time I was 16 I had given up on love and discovered running. I went to college, graduated with my RN degree, met the sexiest man alive, married him, moved to Las Vegas, and just got a job.

That's life.

Daily Reminders

Here are a few things I was reminded of today:

  • Boys will be boys
  • Perseverance, perseverance, perseverance
  • The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese
  • In the end, chocolate does more harm than good
  • Prayers are answered
  • Life goes on
