Thinking Tuesday...

On my mind....

- I wish I would have watched American Idol this season. Scotty is a cutie-patootie! His number with Tim McGraw was amazing!

- My jaw hurts from chewing so much gum. I have been driving a lot and chewing gum keeps me awake!

- I really want to go back to Hawaii....

- Taught my last class at Treehouse on Saturday. One of the hardest things I have I ever done. I love those members so much. It is incredible how close you can get to a group of people over 7 years of teaching. Bawled. My. Eyes. Out.

- Someone is celebrating a special day this week! Here she is at 6 months old. She turns 5 this year. My baby is 5 :(

- Packing. Still just thinking about it and taking no action...

Time Flies...

14 years ago last week (May 17, to be exact) Jesse proposed to me. What a wild ride it has been!

Some things you may or may not want to know about us.....
- We met at Idaho State University our Freshman Year of college.
- We only went on one "real" date before he left to serve a mission for our church. It was to a Brooks and Dunn Concert.
- We wrote every week for 104 weeks while he served his mission in Brazil.
- He returned home on May 16. (yes, you do the math)
- He proposed in front of the Idaho Falls Temple. On one knee.
- His mom picked out my wedding ring.
- We were married 2.5 months later.
- We have been best friends from day one.
- The ride is sometimes bumpy, but we hold on for dear life!

Thinking Tuesday...

Not feeling like I can really organize my thoughts this week....lots of craziness! But here are a few things going through my mind.

- Friends: I have the most incredible friends. Friends who are helping me with my kids while Jesse and I are traveling back and forth. Friends who are offering to help in any way they can - and I know they mean it. Friends from the gym who I will miss like crazy. These are my peeps from the gym....we are all there at 5AM! LOVE. THESE. LADIES.

- My Mom and Mother-In-Law: So sweet to come stay with my kids. What would I do without these to women?

- Justin Bieber: What you say? I know, I know.....but isn't he cute? We watched the Justin Bieber movie this weekend. I didn't know much about him, but he has a pretty cool story.

- Colbie Caillat's new song, I DO. I could listen to it all day long. You can listen HERE.

- Packing: The thought has crossed my mind, but I try to push it immediately out. We got a lot of crap in our house! Ahhhhhh!!!

St George Update

Quick update on our move to St. George! Here's an overview:

- The company that Jesse is a trainer for (and I do their nutrition side) is relocating to St. George. It is a weight loss retreat, so sunny St. George is PERFECT! It is Real Life Fitness and Health.
- The retreat will be ran out of Green Valley Resort. Ya'll should come visit me. Just sayin.
- Jesse moves this weekend. I will be back and forth until the kids are out of school.
- We will TRY to sell our home. (try is the key word here)
- The kids are super excited - Emma thinks it's a vacation.
- I am incredibly sad to leave our home, friends, Treehouse members, church, etc...but am also extremely excited for the change.
- Our other company, LIVE THE LIFE, continues to run just as usual. It is online, so we can do that one anywhere. Bonus!

What a week....I had a skip in my step this week as the sun peeked its head out. Can it be true? Is Spring finally here???

Thinking about....

- My Mom - one of the most beautiful and Christ-like people I know. Along with my Dad. She's cute, huh?

- Figured out how to make creamsicles - YUMMY!!!! Go HERE to learn how.

- Gabe's 5th Grade Campout.

- Emma is reading to me. My baby is reading....how did that happen?

- The land of the free. I am proud to be an American!

- MS Walk 2011. I carried this little stinker for the majority of the 3 miles. The weather was okay for us - it did snow part of the time.

Happy Week! I hope it is sunny in your neck of the woods!
