Blank mind = Blank blog

Once upon a time my blog was cool. Lots of people read it and I had lots of funny things to say. And then I moved to Salt Lake and apparently became less cool and funny and without friends because my blog sucks and I never really have anything to say. So fellow blog stalkers, for this, I apologize.

One happy thing is that I was able to take a 40 minute nap today with no dogs barking, ducks quacking or phones ringing. It was glorious.

Last weekend was so much fun, and very very cold but the Aggies WON and we get to go to a bowl game in December. ROAD TRIP (okay, so it's okay to Boise so it's not much of a road trip but I am working with what I got here)

Also, we set up our Christmas tree and decorations on Friday so we are all festive and stuff. Too bad I have no good camera to take a decent photo, and that apparent hole in our tree just needed a few more lights. The season is off to a fabulous start.


giving happy thanks

Happy Thanksgiving!

I have so many things to be grateful for this year it's overwhelming. Bart and I had tithing settlement Tuesday and were talking to the bishop about all the happy great things in our lives (because seriously, nothing is wrong -knock on wood-) and the bishop was great.

He said that a lot of people have this feeling that the bottom is going to fall out at any moment when their lives are going great, but that doesn't have to be the case because we are here to have a happy life and enjoy every moment! It was really comforting to hear because I know that I have been thinking, it's only a matter of time before something really bad happens because things have been perfect for too long....

I no longer feel like that though, and will just live in my happy life until something happens, and then I will get through that something just fine!

Like I said, I have been feeling extremely grateful for all that I have, I figured I could list a few things even though I am sure I will miss some stuff. These are listed in no particular order except the order that they come out in my brain so maybe it is in some kind of order? 

My very happy marriage
The blessings of the Temple
The opportunity I have to go to school
My brain that allows me to do well in school
The safe, nice place that we live
Bart's job that allows us to be financially stable
My job, even if I work with crazies
My wonderful parents and siblings
Bart's family who I love like my own
My healthy body that allows me to do so much
My true friends who I know care about me as much as I do about them
Orange Juice (haven't gotten sick yet!)
My soft warm bed 
My Gallbladder surgery that has made me feel better than I have in years
The choices I made a few years ago that have made me so happy now
My Iphone to keep me entertained in class :)

I am so excited for this weekend! The festivities will start with THANKSGIVING BREAKFAST at my parent's house which I am sooo excited for because I LOVE breakfast food. After that joyous occasion we will head over to Alpine to spend the day with Bart's family. I am sure there will be games and naps and all that good stuff in there somewhere too. I also don't have to work Friday so we get to have some fun times and Saturday we are off to the USU football game in Logan!
Did I mention I love this time of year?


Swimming or Drowning?

So I went swimming this morning with my trainer, it wasn't a technical session but we had mentioned it earlier and she wanted/was willing to teach me so at 6 a.m. I dragged myself down to the gym.

Good things:
The water wasn't freezing but it still woke me up right away
It was a fun way to switch up my exercise
My knees have been hurting a little lately so the pool was a nice break
I never felt sweaty
Even though I was out of breath pretty much the whole time, my muscles never really felt tired**

Bad things:
It basically felt like I was drowning the entire time. I can't swim the technical way with my head in the water only coming up for air every few strokes. Every time I came up for air I took in a mouth full of water and then who knows what was happening when I was trying to exhale under the water.  I kept gasping for air pretty sure I was going to die right in that pool. 

I am determined to get better at this swimming thing. I think I prefer it more than the Spinning class I have been going to so I think I will get in the water more often. Hopefully I will get to the point where I don't look like a drowning cat in the water

**Now that I am out of the pool my muscles are totally tired. My abs apparently did a lot of work this morning....and the hiccups aren't helping any.


It's my birthday I can cry if I want to

Well it's that time of year again, the time where we all come together to celebrate a great great day.. 
.the day I was born. 

That's right, I'm turning 22 tomorrow. 22! How old is that? HAHA just kidding...but seriously, 22??  

It's not really a monumental birthday, but a TON has happened this year. I am happy to report that this past year has been the best year of my life so far! I have never been happier. I still don't feel like an adult, or any more mature than I was a year ago, but I still had a great year.

Things I learned when I was 21

I suck at gambling and lose all of Bart's money

Cooking is fun for like a week but then it just goes back to being messy and not worth it

I have a LOT of stuff. I got to move that stuff 4 times this year and lets just say my poor shoes and clothes suffered the most.

Change is always going to happen and it is always going to suck at first, but it WILL get better.

well, that is all I have for tonight. maybe tomorrow I will be inspired to say other things. bottom line? my life is wonderful and i love my husband who spoiled me today. do you know when the last time I took a 3 hour nap on a Saturday was??? yeah, me either. it was pretty great.
