I look forward to...

I LOVE Grey's Anatomy! all the reruns are on everyday on Lifetime for like 3 hours straight. I know I need for find something else to do with my time, but I'm just so obsessed with the show. I even have some of the season on DVD. Anyways... Last night episode was SO intense! I never gasped or shed a tear more in one show then last night. Is it sad when characters seem to become real people? I'm also obsess with this show

and the ladies of New York.
I seriously need to find something else to do with my time. :)
At least when I'm watching these shows I'm either editing photos or working on my quilt.(some of the time)

Saturday was Gran't 5th birthday! He really wanted just a family party so all the Normans and Jakobsons came over to play. The families all walked over to the baseball field behind their house and all the kids and some adults played baseball. It was a blast and the kids had so much fun.
Happy Birthday Granty! It still amazes me how fast the kiddos are growing up.

Firsts for all

it was our first time returning to OUR house today. We had our home inspection done today.
Our Inspectors being Josh, his Tyson and their uncle Danny (who has some experience in that field). It was great and just as wonderful as I remember it to be a few months ago. We are so excited to get the process moving and get in the house fast.

Then we headed down the street to babysit Grant and Mads. Saturday is his birthday so we figured we would take them to Wahooz. Mads was a little weird and tired. We pulled into the parking lot I take her out of the car and she vomits on my one shoulder and a little on her and the ground. Great. We go in I clean up and we go on playing the games. She was seeming real tired and I figured she'd fall asleep.

We then go to get some awesome prizes with all the tickets we won and Mads vomits onto the glass case and all on my other shoulder, arm and pants and a lot on her. Great. I clean up and she vomits two more times in the bathroom. Poor baby girl, but after that she seemed a lot better and really wanted to play with grant and Kole. Then on the way home we noticed some vomit in OUR car. By the end of the night I really started to smell real bad, but we all had a good laugh and really did enjoy our night. I told Jen the whole story and she said that was the first time ever that the has ever vomited. There's always a first for everything I guess.

she had to take a bath when we got home and how could I ever be mad at a precious face like hers. I love her so much.

I woke up pretty sick on Monday, but was still determined to go out that evening for our anniversary. Josh had made reservations at tuscanos. It was so good, as usual. We decide this year that we had put some money away to buy gifts for each other. josh got me a purple i-pod nano. Super excited to have one now. I got Josh and flip camera(on a super good sale). we was so excited to use it and he was listing off all the things he wants to record including awesome snow ski and wake boarding treats he plans to perfect this year. He's so cute... I love him.
I had forgot to mention that we got a HOUSE!! We found out Saturday and my brother doing mortgages was able to get our paperwork going that same day. It was a short sale and we have been waiting to hear about it for a couple of months It's in our ideal location in Meridian. Our Realtor said that after April 30Th that the banks really are going to sale the short sales fast. well they sure did on our house. We are beyond excited and feel so lucky to have such a great house. pictures to come later. SO EXCITED!

Another year down

Happy Anniversary to us. We've been married now 2 whole years. What a couple of years it has been for us. With moving, jobs, and finding each other in the midst of chaos. I love Josh so much and so blessed to have him in my life. I married my best friend and can't wait to see what the next year surprises bring us.

Jane O


I've had such a busy week and I've never had time to catch up on my sleep. So i'm very tired and not feeling so well.
Our anniversary is on Mondy the 10th, but to start it off we went to the Sugarland concert. Sugarland was AWESOME, but the opeing acts were bad! Our cousin Stephanie asked my mom and I if we wanted to participate in the Race for the Cure on Saturday. It again was real early in the morning, but mom and i made it just in time for it to start. Mom was able to catch up with Steph, who she hasn't seen in awhile and Dana and I were able to chat and be goofy. What's new!

Hopefully i'll catch up on my sleep and be re-energized for the upcoming week.

Hot shot

My goal for getting a nice photography camera and lens was to someday be able to take pictures and make a little extra income for when I'm a stay at home mommy. If you don't know me, i have always been the one with a camera in my hands. It's been that way ever since I was little. I love to take pictures and have that memory. So.....on Tuesday night I had my first real photo shoot! there is a family in our ward that asked if I could take their pictures. I was more that shocked and super excited to do them. it was great! I hope to do many more pictures for people, besides my own family, and hopefully get my name out there.

I have been reading Stephanie's blog for some time now and each day my heart grows more full for my family and all my blessings. She is and incredible woman and has an incredible faith and testimony in our Savior. He doesn't give us more then what we can handle.

Wedding bells

One of Josh's best friends got married on Sunday. It was a great ceremony with lots of laughs and tears. Kristy looked so beautiful! she entered by coming down a stair case with her long Veil! it took my breathe away. the reception was at the powerhouse downtown Boise. What a cool old brick building. the decorations were pretty and the dancing was awesome. I haven't danced that much in a long time. Everyone was on the dance floor partying it up. I know I've said it before but, we have the greatest friends!
Classic Josh and Boe picture.
my partner in crime, Charla.

Some of our besties, Boe and Charla.

I love weddings, they make me think how lucky I am to be married to such a stud!
