I miss this little girl......why must my family live so far!!!

Love you Natalie...Please don't forget me since I live so FAR AWAY!


For Memorial Day weekend we went to MOAB! Sterling's sister works on the river in Moab.  We of course had to use any excuse we could to go visit! We went with Kate, Jedd and Jess's boy toy Danial! We left Thursday night and got there Friday afternoon. We found a camp site..unpacked and went on a BIKE RIDE!

Moab is GORGEOUS! The red rocks just take my breath away....no 2 rocks are the same!  Every where you look is just so different than Idaho.  Idaho is green and brown.  Moab is RED!  That night we camped under the stars.....perfect!

The next day we woke up ready to GO!  Jessica had to work, so we went mountain biking. We rode porky pine rim which is like 24 miles and pretty intense at times.  Well to me it was intense seeing that I have been mountain biking a total of like maybe 3 times! I love it and wish we could do it more. Bikes just cost like a million trillion DOLLARS!  One day we will have bikes.... anywho back to the trip. The views where so pretty!  It was just so fun to play with Jedd and Katie.  I also loved the warmth of the SUN! The sun is like my happy drug. The trip took longer than we expected but it still was a blast.  I also may have thought I was going to DIE on the trail from dehydration and cooking like a lobster. We only brought like 4 water bottles. Yes, it was like a zillion degrees and it took us about 8 hours and oh yes we are from Idaho where the sun shines every 5 months! Not a good combination for a white girl who sweats like a beast! I did make it though....my lobster bod and all!

On top of the Mountain before our 24 miles

Hard core BIKERS! Really maybe just Katie and Jedd!
Towards the end.....the only thing on our minds was WATER

Love them! They let me have all the WATER!

When we got back we headed straight to a burger shack to grab some yummy food. We met up with Jessica and Jedd's brothers family.  Best burger and fries ever!   After a late din din we went to camp and went to sleep!

Sunday we woke up... made some yummy breakfast burritos and headed off to church. I knew we where in Moab when most people not just me looked like LOBSTERS!  It forsure was a holiday weekend where most people flocked to the warmth.  I also knew it was a holiday when I saw these guys charging their phones in sacrament....really?!

After church we went to a swimming hole. So fun! It was packed but worth the crowds. We hiked about a mile up river to get to some cliffs that we could jump off.  Talk about a great place to people watch.  Oh there where some guys there that I thought wow I wish I wasn't married to this ridiculously good looking person so I could hit on the guy with a baby belly.... drinking out of a wine bottle and dreads?! Yummy....barf!  Yes, a few of those yummy man and woman loved this water hole.  Besides the people watching I jumped into the water twice and it was freezing but fun.  That night we made tin foil dinners which never ever ever disappoint. So yummy in my tummy! I then ended the night with of course the camping  classic a s'more.

Soaking up the rays at the water hole....
Monday came way to fast! We packed up camp and headed over to Arches while Kate and Jedd went rock climbing.  I'm so happy we got to see a glimpse of Arches.  Its amazing the things that Heavenly Father has created on this earth for us.  This is one of those places you just have to see.  I mean the rocks just stand against all the odds.  There is just so much to see and we only got to see one thing.  Totally worth it though! The hike was short and the reward was AMAZING!


Jess and Danial....we are the worst this is the only picture we got of these two cuties!

Our trip was a blast. We had so much fun!  Its just so fun to travel and spend time with family! I love to see and explore new places! Moab has been on my list for places to go and I'm so happy that I now can scratch it off. What a great way to start the summer off with a bang!

The hottest fashion trend

Moab I love you! Thanks for the great weekend with lots of sunshine!

Puppy LOVE

I just finished watching Marley and Me....and I cried like BABY!
I LOVE my PUPPY so much! He is so much a part of our family.  I know he's a dog but I just love him so much and he always loves me back! Dogs are so awesome for the reason that they love you no matter what and they are always so HAPPY!  JACKSON is the best to come home to....he goes crazy and jumps up and down. He just is so small and 
his energy is going to burst out of his little body!

He loves to cuddle 24/7!  He also loves to PLAY! He makes the weirdest growling sound I have ever heard! But I love it! I tell Ster all the time that he is the toy that just keeps giving back! He's the best $200 bucks we have ever spent! He will be my puppy FOREVER! 

Cutest PUPPY ever and cutest owner ever! Ha mer

 PS: YES, I'm a crazy owner who loves their puppy to death! Yes, I miss my puppy like crazy when I'm away from him and Yes, we take him every where! I'm pretty sure Ster feels the same way...he just doesn't like to admit it!

When you really want a baby NEVER NEVER NEVER EVER EVER watch a live birth of a baby! Not going to lie when I saw how much pain the lady was in...than saw her fit a bowling ball through the size of a apple and then on the top of that got some sweet stitches in her tenders!! Yes, I call them tenders because it started to hurt just thinking about it! Woman are so BRAVE!  Ah, the joys of children! I can't wait! 
HA ma ha.... or maybe I CAN!

I'm so FRUSTRATED!!! I hate looking for jobs! My city is too small!! Yes,  I'm super blessed to work for the school during the school year but can I please stop working for almost FREE!  It a great job but I make no money and it's only 24 hours a week.  Now it's summer and school is out.

Today I went to the restaurant that I worked in last summer. I didn't love working there....always drama and I always got crap for needing time off/ or I wouldn't get the days I needed off. Well I have been putting off going back there since I kinda got dissed by the Owner....long story which brings up too much anger! Anyways, I went there today just because we need MONEY!  I talked to the owner and well i just got a negative feeling.  Like when I worked there last summer I was always coming home frustrated and such just because of some or maybe one co-worker who just made it impossible to work with. She did everything perfect and everyone else was nothing...which was so not the case. I even had some full on yelling fights with her......so not the person I want to be. Yes, she was very difficult to work with but she still was a good person.  She just made the work environment impossible..... and I'm not perfect.  I could of handled every situation in a better way.

Back to today.....we talked and she said her problem last summer was always having to work around my schedule.  Which I totally understand where she is coming from. Direct quote " I shouldn't have to work around your schedule, you should have to work around the restaurants schedule. This is a great place to work and you can make a lot of money here".  That is when I thought.....NO I just thought! I want to live my life the way I want and not live my life for a restaurant. I'm sorry if this is the wrong way to think and maybe that's why I can't find a job.  I thinks its the other way around.  Work around your life...yes we need money to live but I don't want it to be my life.  I guess we really don't need money that bad!

In college...working was my life. I worked every weekend.  I missed out on so many fun things....roommate hang outs, parties, dates and other funcitions becuase I was working all the time to get my way through college so I wouldn't have to be a server the rest of my life and scedule my life around a restaurant.  I'm not sure if this is the mind set to have but it truly is how I think.

I want to spend the weekend hanging out with my hubby and playing in this beatuful place that we live in. I want to have lost of fun with him when he's off work. I want to work super hard during the week just like Ster and then enjoy my time with him and our life together. However, instead its the oppiste, to make money I need to work weeknights while Ster is off work and work weekends which is dedicated FUN time.

I'm just torn. Should I be a responsible adult and work when ever I can or should I do what I want with my life and leave the drama out of my life!  I vote leave it! Mer....ha

This post also makes me think about my dream....yes, I want to be a photographer. Most of that will go on in the evening and weddings are most likely on weekends. I guess I'll just have to deal with that when it comes my way and at least I'll LOVE it!

PS- Fun summer update on my trip to Ohio and Moab to come
