Girls night!

"What is a friend? A single soul in two bodies."- Aristotle

Last night Danny watched Gracy and put her to bed and I was able to catch up with some of my closest friends. Its so weird that we are all growing up and doing new things with our lives. Its so rare to have friends that you've known since 3rd grade And its so hard to find time when we are all in town and can get together. Just recently Melanie (coral shirt) just got home from Romania! She left with BYU on a humanitarian job. She spent three months at a hospital taking care of the orphans there. Seriously I haven't been away from my family for more than 3 weeks let alone 3 months lol. We are so glad she is home and had a great time hearing all of her horror stories, and happy stories. I am so lucky to have these girls in my life, what amazing people they are. I love them and am sooo lucky I have a husband that lets me sneak away and get to be a girl for a while.

extra pictures i liked.

just to add to my summer post a few pictures I liked.
Gracy is a Daddies girl through and through.....danny is actually smiling with his eyes opened!

This is Gracy in MONSTER MODE! as you can see a big difference between the first picture and that one lol. She has developed that mean face....its hilarious, she'll even get snorting and spitting like a wild bull. lol. my little savage baby :)This was delicious.....Ann Larson called me up and asked if we wanted any raspberries ....... and I was like......BE RIGHT THERE!!! nothing better than fresh berries and cream for breakfast.

This is my TODDLER!!!! she looks like a little lady now! She loves her duck.

getting the last drops of summer!

Last week my sister in law came and picked me up and we headed off to the lake with the kids. I swear this summer has just flown bye and so we all are trying to get what we can before it gets to cold. Thank goodness I have a sister in law that loves the sun as much as me. We had a blast just relaxing and soaking up the sun. Other than Gracy thinks it's fun to just walk right into the lake ..... she completely submerged herself! It was scary, that little girl keeps me on my toes. My favorite is seeing her bum hanging out of her little swimmer. Gracy's cousins are you can see with the pictures. lol. She has so much fun with them. We plan to hit the lake at least once a week until the weather tells us we cant!!!!

Mommy retreat!

Friday night I got to have a mini vacation :) Danny sent me to the city to see my sister......He and Gracy stayed back in vernal. I went to Orem and stayed with my sister and had sooo much fun. mostly shopping but I have to say my favorite part of the trip was

This place is like stepping into India, its amazing, it even smells like incense when you walk in lol, but so beautiful. The waiters were hilarious and did such a great job, we laughed the entire time, I was a little weirded out when they brought our food out ....... until I consumed my half of the meal......and then our waiter brought us out another plate and said it was "on the house" so I also ate that plate and this yummy yogurt mango drink . My sister is a regular there and so they all knew her and on our way out they were like....."see you on Monday!" it was hilarious lol. Anyway anyone who likes to try new things and loves culture.....its seriously the most authentic Indian food and its delicious....and spicy :) Order the "chicken Marsala" It wont disappoint. :) OH by the way ...... my other favorite restaurant is Mimi's cafe in orem, they have the most amazing quiche Ive ever had. The Lorraine Quiche....highly recommended. :) Thanks so much Corinne for spending the day with me and shopping until our feet blistered lol. And Ive forgotten how its humanly possible to stay up past 10 pm. I made it until 2:00 in the morning and then i wimped out. There's nothing like having a sister. I'm so Glad I get to have not only one great sister but I have two! We probably had Tiff on the phone half the time so she could shop with us. Thanks Danny for giving me a break :) love ya.

So for allot of people....the end of the month is stressful, bills and stuff and for businesses you have to send out invoices and such.......well, of course my Friday was one heck of a day. Thought I better post because it was actually, in a weird way sorda spiritual. I had my Visiting teaching that morning.....and stuff always happens when you need to go VT, so of course My computer completely died, (and my poor partner got the flu) I took it in and the guy said that its 1 in a million chance, it just had a bad circut board. (brand new computer) we got it fixed. (bill was not pretty) . I lost EVERYTHING, my business documents ( those were backed up) but most importunately I lost something even more precious to me.......all of our pictures.........I couldn't believe I did this but I just broke down into tears in front of the computer guy. He totally didn't even know what to do .... so he just awkwardly patted my back lol. well anyway.......although I lost so many important things that day I had the most calm feeling ( after I broke down of course) lol. I couldn't figure out why I suddenly was like......everythings ok. im fine Gracy's fine, Danny's fine. and I realized it must have been because I did my visiting teaching. It's weird to say it was because of VT, but sometimes being obedient to your church responsibilities are really important. I hadn't been doing so well the last couple maybe its my eye opener to start doing a better job. And I found out today that my mom and sister have allot of the pictures I lost. More blessings. And we added an external hard drive to our computer bill lol. Its great it automatically saves everything on our computer every night, so I will never loose anymore memories again. ........ PHEWWW.
