Our ROCKIN' Easter Weekend!

We took a trip to Logan again for Easter weekend because Bethies Grandpa wasn't doing very well. We spent Friday with him and Monday morning he passed away. We are happy that he is no longer suffering and free from pain.

Saturday we spent some time with Becky,Tim, and Carrie. We went to breakfast and then spent some time at Borders Bookstore, but it didn't take Tim long to try and herd us all out of there. I guess books are not his thing. He should of spent some time with Karl and Derek, guns would of kept him busy for a while longer. After that we went to Sams Club on the hunt for some packages of gum for Derek and while on the search, we located the best kid candy ever! FUN-DIP...yum! Carrie insisted that Tim buy her some because its her favorite.

Karl and Beckys house was sounding good about now after running around so much. So we decided to go there and just hang out, take a nap, and of course play a little GUITAR HERO. I love this game, it ROCKS!

This is me concentrating so so HARD! Check out my eyes...HAHA!

Here I am again with Tim playing along and Becky doing I don't know what! LOL

Here is Mike and Carly joining in on the fun. They were awesome!

We also played Singstar. If you like Karioke, you'll LOVE this. Carly and Becky..this one is for you! :) Sorry its kind of dark, but at least you can at least hear them ROCKIN' out!

Here is Mike and Carly singing Singstar!

Saturday night we met everyone at Golden Corral for dinner. It was packed of course but the salad and everything was YUMMY! Here is a cute pic of Holly at dinner. :)

It was a fun yet busy weekend in Logan. It was great to see everyone!

We left Sunday afternoon from Logan and headed home. My family was having Easter dinner and I wanted to spend a little time with them. The weather was great so Bethie and I walked to and from my brothers house. :)

Here is a picture of my beautiful niece Brittany. LOVE HER!

This is my silly mom. She wouldn't let me take a picture of her, so here she is behind the camera getting a shot of me haha!

My dad wouldn't let me get a pic of him either. This is the best I could do. Check out the tooth pick in his mouth LOL

Here is Kim,Stacey and Brit working on some wood candle holders for Kaseys baseball auction.

Here is my nephew Kasey and my soon to be step nephews, Tanner and Colby. Looks like they had a little too much to eat. :)

Thanks everyone for a great Easter this year! I hope you all had a good one too.

Sorry for the long post. Just a quick update on my weigh in for last week. I lost a whopping 2.4 pounds. Taking my total up to 12.4 pounds! :) I'm a little scared for this week with all the yummy food and candy that I consumed for Easter. It sure isn't easy when there is a holiday that rolls around like that.

Happy St. Pattys Day!

When I went to my moms on Saturday to try out her new Cricut, I cut out these super cute flowers. I liked them tons because they look like Spring flowers. Anyways, Staceys birthday is tomorrow and I decided to use these flowers for her birthday card. Talk about super easy to make. Here is the finished product. :)

The Cricut Cutter!

OH MY HECK..Okay,so my mom has been debating on whether she should buy one of these cool Cricut Cutters or not. Well,today she gave in and bought one.I must say,this thing is AMAZING. If your into scrapbooking,making your own cards or anything that has to do with paper,it will do pretty much everything! Bethie and I made dinner tonite for my mom and dad and afterwards I was just playing around on the cutter,just to see what it really can do. I think I will be spending alot more time at moms now. :) So,you should check them out if your into this kind of stuff and if you get the chance to buy one,I will be spending some time at your house too..haha! :)

Jordan and Ashley..<3

We went to Jordan and Ashleys wedding reception last night in American Fork. They were married yesterday March 14,2008 in the Mount Timpangous Temple. I work with Jordan at Vantage. He is a neat kid. He makes me laugh at work by the little things he does and says. For instance...I was sitting at my desk building keypads and I heard someone calling my name. I looked up and there sat Jordan, with a blown up rubber glove that he had carefully drawn a face on, with his head pulled down in his shirt, while using the rubber glove for his head. That totally made my day! I was laughing so hard..LOL I don't know Ashley too well, but I've met her several times when she has came into Vantage to see Jordan. She looked so pretty in her wedding dress! Congratulations Jordan and Ashely!

Spring Fever!!!!

Okay, Oh my heck! I have spring fever oh SO bad!! This past week the weather has been SOOOOOOOOO nice! Wearing only a light jacket on my way out the door for work,and you know it going to be spring soon when you leave work and you have to have the windows rolled down. YEA! I love spring. :) Can't wait for the bar-b-cues,going to the scera shell,family get togethers and camping!

So, it was weigh in time again tonite, UGH! I think I dread this day every week,but who doesn't when your trying so hard to lose weight. The results are in...I didn't lose anything :( but the good thing is I didn't gain anything either. :) So frustrating sometimes, especially when you know your doing your best. But I do have to say I feel SOO much better losing 10 pounds!

Fender Bender and Weigh In!

I was leaving work today with the anticipation of making it home safely. I was stopped waiting to make a right hand turn out of the parking lot, looking left to make sure the traffic was clear. All of a sudden I felt a "JOLT", Bethie and I looked at each other like,"WHAT WAS THAT?" I thought maybe my foot slipped off of the brake pedal,but my foot was actually still on the brake pedal. I just happened to look up and look in my rear view mirror and I saw Alexis backing up. In that instant I knew I had been HIT! AAAAAAAHHHHH.... Alexis and I both pulled back into the parking lot, to check my car and make sure it wasn't too badly damaged. Alexis was so funny, she could not stop apologizing. "I looked down for just a sec", she said. All was well with my car..just a small scratch on the rear bumper. After all the HUGS and APOLOGIES from Alexis, Bethie and I were back on the road!

On a more positive note. We have to weigh in at weight watchers once a week. Thursday is weigh in for me and I lost 1.2 pounds. My total weight loss is now 10pounds. YES! And I got another 5 pound star. :)

Weight Watchers! :)

Well, some of you may already know that I joined weight watchers about 6 weeks ago. So far I have lost 8.8 pounds and still going strong. I will not lie,it has been very hard at times, but I'm determined to lose weight. Not only to feel good about myself but to be healthy. I will use my blog to keep you all updated on how I am doing with the program. :)

So,I didn't post much last week because it was just one of those crazy weekends. While we we were in Logan for Carries baby shower we visited with alot of family and friends. Carrie got alot of stuff for the baby,which I was glad about. We got to see and spend time with Holly (bethies niece). What a cutie she is! Stupid me..didn't take any pics, sorry! We talked to Jared and Sharron and I even conned Jared into buying me some YUMMY jerky. Thanks Jared! We had dinner with Tim, Carrie,Amanda,Brittany and Becky that night at El Sols. And before we left we stopped at Mike and Carlys and visited with them. They showed us all the fun stuff that they got at IKEA just recently. Thanks guys for sharing! All in all it was a fun trip. Thanks Becky for letting us stay at the Hunter Hallow Inn! :) Where we always feel welcome. Thanks Brittany for coming along!
