i hate the word bragging!

I'm bragging again, but I honestly hate that word!! Jade just called me though... he is in South Jordan today at a ropin and him and his brother Shad just won the #15 ropin!!!
This is our phone conversation:

ring ring:
me: hello!
jade: guess who's picture you're gonna see in the super looper next month?
me: are you serious?!
jade: ya....

So i'm so excited for him! I love him and he is so much fun! I think I am going to retire from goin to ropin's though, because everytime I stay home he wins!

just pics of home

This is a pic of the Diamond W coming home from work last night.

This is my parents old house. Most of their stuff is still there but they are sleepin in the new house now. :) Kind of sad.

This is from the Mine Road comin down the back way. I can't believe that my parents aren't gonna be here anymore. It is going to be so weird and quite the change for everyone! I'm excited for them though!

last night was the team ropin for the testicle festival. jade won the rifle! he won 1st, 3rd, and 5th i think. i kept calling him and he kept telling me he was roping with everyone so i told him to win so he wouldn't have to pay anything. :) AND he didn't have to pay anything so that was great!

baby mama

Maui finally had her babies!!! She had 3 on Sunday and 2 on Monday morning!! So if you can't count... that is 5!

They are so tiny!!! and CUTE!

Look at that little face!

There were only 3 when I went to bed, and I thought she was done! When I woke up in the morning, i saw this little yellow guy & couldn't believe it!! I don't know where in the world he came from, but i'm glad he is here! :)

So, does anyone want a kitty???

I just wanted to let everyone out there know that I love my husband! He is amazing. I got home late on Tuesday night and had to work Wednesday and all day I just thought, "oh my heck, I want to go home and take a bath & read my book". Great thought right? But the problem was my house was a wreck and I can't function when it is like that, so I had my game face on quite poorly when I was headed home. I was determined to clean fast, but the second I walked in the door I wanted to cry because my house was spotless. Jade cleaned it all up & get this... he even did the dishes!! So I was able to jump in the tub right when I got home! I love him!!!
New story... he sent me roses at work today... for no special reason! I called him and he simply said that they are because I am the greatest thing that has ever happened to him...

I love you Jader!

I have a work plant & a cute picture on my desk now! Wanted to share! :)
This is my brand new work computer!!! Sweet huh??
AND, i'm only going to say this one more time!

it is friday!!!

Today is my crazy friends birthday!! Happy Birthday Shelly!!! You rock and I love working in the same building as you!! Except for the days that you are gone! Anyways... hope you have a great day & wish I had a funny picture to put up of you but I don't so have a wonderful day!!!!
Well, another successful St George trip down!! We had so much fun!
This is my cousin Sherrie, my Gran, & Maddie on our way down. Kinda a long trip if you can't tell by my granny's expression.
This is the condo we stayed at thanks to my favorite Aunt Shirley!

Sherrie is seriously so awesome!

Sherrie giving Maddie a pedicure on the patio.

This my absolute greatest Aunt Curly ever!!

Some crazy lady offered to take our picture so we let her! I love these girls so much and had so much with them!!

*catch up*

Well wouldn't you know... my camera was dead & all it needed was a good charge, so I kind of owe it an apology for threatening to throw it. sorry...
ANYHOW! i have a few pics just for fun so that you can have something to look at if you are ever desperate enough to read my page!!
These are my lovely parents! They are the greatest! We ended up taking my mom out to dinner at Chili's for Mother's Day!
I know... we are ridiculous.
Is that tacky we have matching sunglasses??? Just kidding, for the sake of a picture I made him wear them, but after the picture he wouldn't take them off.
Alright, at Relief Society Tuesday, we planted flowers. So much fun.. I wish I could say that I actually learned something but it was all kind of over my head, but my goal is to keep these alive no matter what it takes! Don't you love my yellow pot? I stole it from my grandma!

I have to show you this picture because I love my tulip lamp!! My grandma gave me that as well... she has seriously been trying to give it away since I can remember, but I love it. It is one where you just have to tap it and it comes on. Oh and my little mirror end table. I got it at Target. It was regulary $89 and I got it for $9! How sweet is that?

This is my other little plant.
And this is for Shelly... they don't always lay in a heart shape but they are always snuggling...
K, that is my latest. I think I am all caught up!! xoxo

no life... at all!

i tell you what... i have nothing to blog about. like how sad is that??? i tried to post some pics earlier but my camera won't turn on- i think i'm gonna throw it and see if that helps. in 15 minutes i get to go to the junction and help my mother paint her new house. should be a good time, but painting is not a strength of mine. it usually results in mom saying "no, you have to do it like this" and then taking over & making me feel bad. but i'm gonna give it a run.
oh, i attempted to have my first conversation in spanish today. i guess i should have taken a spanish class because he couldn't understand a word, but i actually helped the guy and everything is good. did i mention that it was on the phone? which i personally feel was much harder because he couldn't see my wonderful hand talking skills! :)
Oh, I ate at the gator today and i feel like french fry/onion ring grease is seaping out of my pores, which makes me feel that much better about myself. oh & shelly... i wish you were at work today because I wore fake eyelashes. no, they aren't feathers but it is the first time i have been able to last all day without yanking them off. usually i will try to put them on at home and end up getting glue all over my face so ya...

st george

our trip to st george was a huge success! no clouds, massive rays, and a freakin sweet hotel! we layed out for 2 days straight, did a little shopping, & i beat my own personal goal of watching movies: 5 movies in 3 days.

whit, laura & me at midnight with our feet in the pool. we considered sleepin on blow up beds, but somehow kaboshed that one.
our first view of the pool. sooo nice.
we stayed at the crystal inn & no joke... it freakin rocked! the free breakfast won me over & the fact that we could walk out our back door & there was the pool definitely made it worth it. in our room we had all the amenities: fridge, microwave & i have never been to a hotel that actually had a dvd/vcr player so if you can spot it in this picture- you win!!! (what for sure i do not know)

this is caden! he is seriously the coolest kid. this is him trying to beat whitnie. we weren't exactly sure what game they were playing but we think caden won.
this is whitnie's attempt to win; i think the fact that she didn't even land on the floatie put her out of the running.
me & laura just watched these two for about 2 hours come up with some of the dumbest pool ideas i have ever heard of, but it was some dang good watching.
it was such a great time & we had so much fun! i can't believe i get to go next weekend!!! rock on!

and for all of you who are really wondering..... the movies we watched are: ps i love you, 27 dresses, & at the theatre we watched: baby mama, made of honor, & what happens in vegas! i loved all of them but the vegas one was my favorite!

Well tonight is the night!! We have been playing volleyball every Monday night for the past 3 months and tonight is the finals! We are starting out playing the other Rich County team and then we will see. We will most likely be playing 3 games tonight and if things go South we could end up playing 4 which would mean we play the other Rich team 3 times. Intense right? I'm excited to be done but it has been so much fun playing with all of my friends and giving me something to do! Jade has been a faithful fan from the beginning and I love him so much!

On the other hand... i'm so happy that it is getting warm! As of right now my plans for the next two weekends are going to St. George to lay by the pool! I hope I get fried to a crisp!!! Not really, but I hope I come home tan so I don't have to worry anymore about wearing shorts in public!! Does anybody have any good books that they recommend I start reading? I love laying out and reading. It is my favorite except for the fact that under my chin doesn't get tan because I'm always looking down. :) I'll figure something out though! I have some more branding pictures to post so I will try to get on that sometime. Or else I will just tell you to go to Shers! She has lots of fun pictures of our weekend.

So I hate to admit this, but I gave in & watched the movie Sweeny Todd. It isn't scary if you go in thinking that it is a classic and focus on the words. If you just watch the movie, you could get a little scary. It is a musical so the story comes out in the songs, and the songs were beautiful. Johnny Depp has an amazing voice. But the movie is still kind of disturbing based on the fact that people come to him to get a shave and then he ends up killing them, and drops them down the shute into the basement where Mrs. Lovett then chops them up and makes meat pies. YUCK!! But they both get theirs.
