The other man in my life has finally come to find me. Yes, it's true (Randy told me himself) that Brad will soon be filming a movie here in Utah. Tooele in fact, and so what if he didn't Mapquest my address and show up on my door step. I mean, does he have to do all the work in this relationship...it's the least I can do, meeting him out in nowhere land. I'm thinking maybe he doesn't want to upset Angelina, she is getting ready to pop any day now. That must be why he wants to meet in the desert, no one will know. But of course I'll have to come clean with R...he might wonder where I've gone when I return with my blouse on inside out and my hair all matted in the back (kidding girls, kidding :).
I've been waiting for this day all my life and I'm pretty sure he feels the same about me. How exciting that all this longing... this anticipation... this lusting will soon come to fruition! You might ask how Randy feels about this, well he is pretty used to sharing me with Brad...he's willing to make certain sacrifices on our (Brad and I's) behalf. And I always tell him he's free to have his own fantasy mistress...I have no problem with that!
So the final question is this...where should I put the tattoo of Tooele's coordinates (after all this is where we'll share our first kiss) on my body?

You see Randy brought this to me today, came home from church with it. He laid it in front of me and just as I was thinking all those judgemental thoughts he said, "It's a pot holder. It's from Jerry Talbott. He said he was making one for everyone who has helped him get through the sorrow of the passing of his wife. He had like a hundred of them. He let me pick the color I wanted, so I choose blue. He said he's been busy making them, that's how he's getting through his days. He's trying to keep busy, working with his hands."
Jerry is an 70 ish year old man who just recently lost his wife to cancer, a battle she fought and lost within only 6 short weeks. He is in our ward...I don't know him well, but love him enough. I got teary eyed after I thought about the love that went into making this. No it might not be the best looking pot holder I own, but it might just be the sweetest made one. This sweet man, who now must journey through the rest of his life without his lovely wife...he made this just for us, as a way of saying thank you, as a way of filling up his days...without his companion.
So thank you Jerry...thank you for sharing this with me. Thank you for this pot holder, thank you for this lesson on love and not being so quick to judge. It's just what I needed on this sweet Sunday.

Yes this beautiful new Serta mattress is soon to be mine, ALL mine...Ok, I guess I'll share a portion of it with him but he better not getting any funny ideas. I plan on doing some serious sleeping in this bad boy. We have wanted a new mattress for years but it never seems to make it to the top of the list. So while I was home today, probably taking a nap in soon-to-be old bed, he was out surprising me with this beauty. It'll be delivered next week...Yippy Skippy:)
So thanks babe, you are awesome and I guess if you're lucky I might consider another activity (besides sleep) in said bed ;)

Have I ever mentioned what great sisters I have? Not leaving out my mom and dad...they are awesome too! My sister Ang (the one on the horse that looks ready to cry...wimp) was just here for a few days. It was great having her...whenever or wherever she sees the need to help, she's there, no questions asked. She came in and kicked some serious booty in the kitchen...made us great dinners every night and got up with my kids in the morning and made them breakfast. This was truly a treat for them, since I am usually sawing logs when Hannah and Hailey leave in the morning. In fact, she not only made dinner for us every night, she also made meals that she froze so we can have them later. She was amazing and I am so blessed to have her in my life. (We did manage to throw in a massage and pedicure while she was here...so it wasn't all work and no play.)
Ok so he didn't win big on Idol last night, but he does get to eat at this 5 star restaurant in Murray. He shouldn't feel bad, after all who wouldn't want to eat here free for a lifetime?
C'mon...you know you're jealous!!
My sister and I saw this the other day while we were running errands. Just so happens that I had my camera in the car. Good thing huh, or you might not have believed me. This Boobie prize rocks...who needs American Idol anyways?!

So Friday morning rolls around and here they come, into my home and my heart. I couldn't wait to do the laundry...in fact all four of the girls were excited to welcome our new addition. That day was great but as it rolled on I noticed the dryer was taking forever to dry our clothes. Something was not right but R was out of town so I tried to fix the problem myself. In fact I went to bed that night reading the whole entire owners manual, trying to figure out what might be wrong. The next day my handy sister Ang (more on her visit later) happened to be flying in to see me. So together we set out to solve the problem. We figured something was probably clogging the filter, because the dryer was getting sooooo hot! We pulled a bunch of crap out but it was still drying slow. So when R came home last night he went straight to fixing the problem. To make a long story short (cause this has been short so far)...he found the problem after hours of climbing on ladders and using the shop vac, a broom and a plumbing snake (Thanks babe, you rock) Here's the culprit....
He said he pulled about 3 times this amount out of the vent going into the house. Apparently some birds have been very busy!!! So keep in mind that where they were making their nests is where the hot air comes blasting out. We figured this had probably been here for years, probably before we moved in 'cause our house sat empty for a year! No wonder it took FOREVER for our clothes to dry.
Well anyways, just wanted to share (that very long) story (sorry) and officially welcome the newest members of our family....don't be jealous though...you can go adopt your very own just like Brangelina!

Ok, I know Hope turned 10 almost 3 weeks ago but I am just now getting around to posting the pictures from her celebration! Instead of a big party with lots of friends she choose to have just 2 of her closest friends (and Hudsen) celebrate the day with her! It started with a sleepover on the eve of her birthday and continued into the next day. Her favorite breakfast then we headed to the mall for some fun. Lunch at the food court (I know, nothing is too much for my princess:) then a spin on the Merry Go Round. We then headed over to the nail shop for pedicures...they loved this part. After we did some shopping and returned home. Later that night it was her pick of restaurants, back to the house for cake and ice cream and PRESENTS...the best part right?! It was all a hit, especially the Rip Stick she got from her Mimi and Ruff...thanks guys. Overall, I think she enjoyed her day and I was glad to get out of a big party!!
