Not So Starving.

Do you remember this post? About me being not just baby hungry, but baby starving?

Ha... It's funny how much my attitude has changed since then. Don't get me wrong... I still daydream about the day when I get to hold my baby in my arms, but I'm okay if that day doesn't come for a few years.

Why? Well... first off Landon and I are still in school. And we have plenty of school loans that we need to worry about. Plus, I will NOT work after having a baby. This means we have to wait until Landon has a STEADY job that allows me to stay home.

But even if money weren't an issue and we were millionaires... I still don't think I'd be quite ready.

Why? Well, because I absolutely LOVE this time with just Landon and me! I love that I can put all of my focus and attention on that cute boy. I love that we can have random date nights. Or spend all night just laughing and playing and hanging out just the two of us. I don't know if I'm willing or ready to share him quite yet....

But I know that when we are ready that it will be the most joy and love either of us have felt. I know that we will love that baby more than I can even imagine. I can't wait.... oh wait, yes I can! :)

P.S. My nieces and nephews are pretty much as cute as they come. I love thinking about how my kiddies might look like them! Chubby cheeks and all :)

Confession: Today I Taped My Skirt...

Yep. You heard me. There was a hole in my skirt. So I taped it.

I like to think I'm going to be one of those cute little housewives that does crafty things while playing with the kids all day while the hubs is at work.

There's just one little problem with that picture... I do not have ONE OUNCE of craftiness in me. Great. How am I supposed to be a cute little stay at home momma?

Yikes. I need to learn... Pronto!

I need to learn how to:
  • Make cutesy home decor items
  • Sew on a button (pathetic, I know... But I have like five shirts/jackets with missing buttons that I just don't wear because I accidentally don't know how to sew the button back on...woops!)
  • Learn how to quilt so I can make my babies quilts. Oh, and all their bedding for the crib. I could save SO much money. Plus, they would turn out SO cute!
  • Learn how to hem pants. I also have a stockpile of pants that are too long for my short stubby legs... so instead of hemming them (because I don't know how) I simply just don't wear them.
  • Basically just learn how to SEW. I have sewn before... I took some classes in high school and would come home crying. I.hate.sewing. But I really want to like it.
So I guess it's a good thing we aren't having a baby anytime soon... because I have A LOT to learn!

Why Today was Absolutely Perfect

  • I got to sleep in
  • I finished almost everything on my huge senior project (it's already 56 pages by the way)
  • I got to spend time with my cutie nieces, Atlie and Macie
  • I took a nap!
  • I cleaned my bathroom and sheets! I love CLEAN!
  • I cut Landon's hair and it actually turned out good! Wohoo!
  • Landon and I made a delicious dessert--a pizookie! (Basically it's a cookie cooked in a pan like a cake and then served warm with vanilla ice cream and fudge...Mmm!)
  • We also made a delicious dinner--Wisconsin Cauliflower Soup. Delicious!
  • But mostly it was perfect because I got to spend all day with my very best friend :)
If I had a genie, I would wish that I could be with Landon all day every day. That would make everyday as absolutely perfect as today! (I would also wish for endless money... That would be convenient. Oh...and world peace...)


Man, I love him. Recently I've given him a new "pet" name and call him "my happy." Ya know, like from Peter Pan? He's my happy thought. My happy :) Oh so cheesy! But it's true.

Two! in a week!

My sweet little hard working cutie pie of a husband (try saying that 10 times fast) has TWO job interviews this week! One tomorrow and one Wednesday! I'm SO proud of him and keeping our fingers crossed that we can get a JOB and start making a PLAN for life after college.

One of the jobs is down in Provo so we would be able to stay in Utah (hip-hip-HORRAY) and one of the jobs is in Portland...

Here's to hoping (especially for the job that's in UTAH!!)

Wish us luck :)

True Story

After giving the name "Hannah" for my reservation at Red Lobster the following conversation occurred:

Host guy: Okay, I just have to say it and I'm sure you get this all the time... (I thought he was going to say something clever/original about how Hannah is Hannah spelled backwards) Hannah Montana? (Oh that's new...)

Me: Ohhh *awkward laugh* yep, that's me!

Host guy: Umm, no you're not Miley... I know her. And I know David. We go way back...

Me: Uhhh, cool. How long is our wait?

Awkward much? Oh what a silly little guy, you're the one that brought up me being Hannah Montana and I awkwardly agreed. And who the heck is David?!

P.S. this guy did not look like someone Miley would be hanging out with.... I'm just saying...

P.P.S. I don't know why I always end my posts with a P.S. and P.P.S. lately, but I just wanted to say this is my third post in three days. That's what I get for being sick in bed all day trying to find ANYTHING to do but homework :)


Thank you Disney Channel for tainting my name...

A Visit From Our Texas Friends


The week after we got back from Christmas in Texas, our friends from Texas came to Utah and stayed with us. They definitely got their share of snow... from snowboarding to sledding to snowstorms! I think they're happy they aren't from Utah :) We really had so much fun--going out to eat, playing games, drinking gallons of hot chocolate, and late nights staying up talking. Thanks for coming to visit James, Christina, Jaime, and Grant! Please come back again soon :)

Good News, Bad News

Good news... It's the weekend! :)
Bad news... I'm feeling really sick :(
Good news... At least it's the weekend and not a day where I am entertaining 20 seven year olds ALL day.

I really am looking on the bright side of this situation. Because now I have all weekend to rest (well actually I have a TON to plan...) but at least I can do it from the comfort of my own bed instead of getting sick in the middle of the week while student teaching. Hopefully I'll be good as new by Monday :)

Happy Weekend everyone!

P.S. If I did make New Years Resolutions, which I didn't because it never works, it would be to stay calm and not freak out and stress out. I'm really trying to work on that one. If you didn't know already, teaching is STRESSFUL and EXHAUSTING. But boy, is it WORTH it! Trying to stay positive and calm :)

P.P.S. Hopefully I didn't share a drink with my bro in the past few weeks... because this sickness I have could be mono. Yikes... I really need my energy please and thank you!

Thank Goodness.

There's absolutely nothing better than being at home doing nothing with my best friend. There's really nothing I'd rather be doing. Thank goodness for the weekend and for this BLISS :)


He sure makes me happy.

Anyway, student teaching is going GREAT. I absolutely love my sweetheart mentor teacher and my adorable class of 20 first graders. I have been teaching SO much already and I'm rather exhausted. But it is great practice and I have learned a lot. One little girl came up to me at the end of the day and said, "When you become a real teacher, I think you are going to be great." Aww they are just too sweet!

I can't believe that in a few months Landon and I will be college grads and then on to the next chapter in our lives! I can't wait! Life is good.

Christmas in Texas

Well, this might be the last spare minute I have for the next four months, so I better blog while I can! :) I started Student Teaching yesterday in a first grade class and I am still very nervous and am definitely lacking confidence, but I'm so excited and love the kids and my mentor teacher so much!

Anyway, we left the day after Christmas for the 19 hour drive to good ole Texas! It was our first time being there since the divorce, so it was definitely hard and will take some adjusting to splitting our time. Other than not feeling like we had enough time with both parents, we really did have so much fun! We got spoiled by both Landon's mom and dad and feel SO lucky to have such amazing family and friends in Texas. It was so hard to say bye :(

Some highlights of the trip: going out to eat to Pei Wei, Olive Garden, and Red Lobster, getting two Christmas dinners, two Christmas mornings, playing XBOX Kinect, playing endless amounts of games (things, apples to apples, and catch phrase), Texas shopping, and of course just getting to spend time with our family!

Galleria Mall in Dallas, TX. Biggest mall I've ever seen!

Christmas # 2 with Suzette

Christmas # 3 with Daren (thanks for the cute face Landon)
We love our visits to Texas and miss everyone already!! Well, wish me luck with student teaching and we'll see how often I update this thing :)
