Long time...No see/Post

Well, Im not even really sure of where to start. It has been over a year since I have posted something on here. I guess I just sort of felt like everything I was doing was really boring. Then life gets to crazy and you really don't have the time, its sort of a viscious circle, ya know? So, anyways...I am going to try and start up again and be a little bit better about keeping up with our life. I think that I am going to try and start a cooking blog. I have been really enjoying that lately and I guess that it would be something easy to blog because I am passionate about it and love it. Plus, now that our life is sort of in limbo I have a lot more free time to do the things that I love and that make life so happy.
I am going to kind of give a little bit of back story to why I have so much free time on my hands.
In the beginning of Sept. Eric's company told us that they wanted us to move to Portland. We were really excited. They sent us up there on some fun trips and we checked out some areas and got a little bit more familiar with Portland. So, we got all of our stuff packed up a little early and when to stay with my parents for a while so that we could spend some quality time with the family before the big move. Well, several months have come and gone and we are still living with my parents. They have been really wonderful through all of this crazy commotion.
So, what happened with his job was that they went through some wierd lay off periods and there budget got a little tighter than they had anticipated and so they put our move on hold for a while. We still have a job, so that is good. Plus, we have been able to spend a lot of time with our family and that has been really cool. I have had a lot more time to do the things I want to do. I am so so so happy. We have also been able to save some money, so that is also a happy thing , right? Gotta love that!
So, basically that is our story right now. If you are still reading this, you are a champ and should go and get yourself a treat. Hopefully, I will post again before another year has past. I am not promising anything, though.
So until next time...stay cool.

2010...HERE I COME

I can't believe that we are already starting a new year. Time just flew by and definitely got away from me. 2009 was a great year. So many wonderful things happened. Some great memories were made and life in general was just great. I want to make this year even better than last year. So, I am going to start my year out with a bang!! Here are some new goals I have come up with for this year. They are as follows...

1. No sugar until August.
2. Cook more really healthy food.
3. Work out consistently through out the whole year.
4. Start building up my running stamina.
5. Run some small races around SLC.
6. Run the 10k race portion of the spud man triathlon in July.
7. Make more memories.
8. Spend time with the family.
9. Be more patient.
10. Just have fun and Be Happy!!!

I think I have some good goals, and some just plain scary goals. This is the year that I am going to really push myself to be healthy and live a better life. Life is good, don't get me wrong, but its always good to set goals, and push yourself. So, wish me luck. Lets go 2010!!

I can't wait. I have already started listening to Christmas music and I am going to get all of my Christmas decor up tonight!!! So exciting! All we need now is a little snow!!! I seriously can't believe that we don't have any yet. This truly is the best time of year! It is the time of year that we all come together and become more aware of others. We have the spirit of giving. It is a time when we come together in love and service. Most of all, It is a time to celebrate our Saviors birth and life. We need to always remember the true meaning of Christmas and keep it in our hearts all year round. I love everything about this holiday!!! Just please don't go by to fast!!!!

Elder David Burtenshaw

Left us standing extremely proud and with tears streaming down our faces, 2 years ago at the Twin Falls Airport. He was on his way to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He would be serving in the Burmingham, England mission. I remember standing there that day watching him wave out to us from the airplane window thinking " This is going to be the longest 2 years of my life. It is going to be so hard to have him gone." Don't get me wrong. I was so proud of him, but I was going to miss him terribly. 2 years have gone by and I am very proud to announce that he is going to be coming home on Wednesday July 22nd at 6:00 pm. He has served so faithfully, and is definitely coming home with honor. It has been such an amazing experience for me to read his letters and to watch him really grow up. He is turning into such a great man. Yikes!I just called him a man! My little brother is growing up! Congratulations David!!! You did it!

The Fray

Eric surprised me with tickets to The Fray, as an early birthday present! Happy Birthday to me! I was so excited. We had so much fun just being together. Sitting on the grass at the Usana and getting some r&r while listening to great bands. Jacks Mannequin also came with them. They were fun to see as well. All in all it was a really great night! Thanks for the wonderful birthday present!!!It was a blast!
