Baby come dance with me.

I'm diggin this rainy day while doing a gigantic pile of dishes, 
kitten sleeping, and listening to my "favs" playlist. 
It's full of really amazing stuff, and then a couple 
of things everyone would disrespect me for. 
What can I say? I like being alone. I love a quiet home. 
I love to think. I love to just be. 

And I also love to be loud, be funny, be crazy, be spontaneous, be with Smith. 
That's why I love my life. I'm with Smith, who allows me to be me and be anything. 
We're all in. In it together. Just us two and the couple we've brought in. 

Cupcakes. Sharing 3 at Georgetown Cupcakes Fri night 
made me SO sick that night, but Milk Chocolate Birthday Cake, 
Strawberry Lava Fudge, and Lemon Blossom, you were
SO worth it!!


What a curious life we have found here tonight
there is music that sounds from the street.
There are lights in the clouds and his ghost all around
hear a voice as it's rolling and ringing through me,
soft and sweet, how the notes all blend unreachable.
The trees.

What a beautiful face I have found in this place
that is circling all 'round the sun.
And when we meet on a cloud
I'll be laughing out loud, 
I'll be laughing with everyone I see.
Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all.

He's a cat. MEOW.

Okay, this video is really really funny.

Monte loves water. But we leave the toilet seat down ALWAYS (super pet-peeve of mine not to and I've trained Collin well) so he hasn't gotten a chance at this one yet....

V-Day Cards

Valentine's Day-o-Love.

I love Holidays. I love Valentine's Day. I love my husband and friends and family and kitten and home and Skittlecore and CANDY! Since forever my mom has also loved this holiday and has decorated and heart-shaped everything from paper to pancakes to meatloaf to potatoes to rolls.

I guess I just can't help carrying this heart madness on. I love love and I love making valentines. Feb is a great month. (Especially since it's almost MARCH and SPRING and BIRTHDAYS and mom and Joe coming out!) Anyway, I feel great.


Made him be an adorable guy with a big red bow for Valentine's. He hated it and two seconds after this ripped it off and tore it up. ALSO, he is NOT allowed on the table under ANY circumstances, yet, it was too cute.

Look at that sweet heart egg yoke! Totally accident. And other good stuff.
 Sweetest sweethearts.

I love my boys. I love my Collin. He's wonderful. What else is there to say?

Ps. We're loving our new Food Processor. Collin is watching the instructional DVD right now. Learning to make all SORTS of good stuff. Oh yes.

Pps. Monte's FAVORITE game in the WORLD is hide and seek!!!! It is SOOOOOOOOOOO CUTE! He LOVES to hide ANYWHERE! (mostly under the shower curtain, and under newspaper.) But honestly, he is good with just crouching down low to the ground and things we can't see him. AHAHAHAHAH. He runs after me and jumps up and sort of hugs my legs, and then I say, "YOU GOT ME!!! I'm GONNA GET YOU!!!" And he SPRINTS off and hides behind the bed or in the blinds. Then when I take off running he comes and finds and attacks me and then we do it like 10 more times.

happy lovin'

We were so late for church today because we were makin Valentine's for our home/visiting teachees this morning so

A. made the Jones family wait in the car for us.

B. I not only forgot to get myself a snack, but also forgot to eat BREAKFAST! This cannot happen. I will die.

C. I was in such a bad mood and didn't even sing during one of the songs.

D. I got the biggest piece of bread ever during the sacrament.

E. The talks were on charity and forgiveness and the pure love of Christ and I started feelin good.

F. I didn't die.

G. I got to eat a couple of cookies. Smith really nailed the pink and red colors for frosting. And the Valentines were super cute.

H. I really got a kid who has been having a hard time in nursery to calm down.

I. We had the BEST snack in nursery EVER (grapes, cheddar cheese and ritz) and there was a ton so I got to eat, too. Yessssss.

J. Choir was awesome.

Bottom line. I love love and second chances and that CS loves me even when I'm a snot. I'm a happy one.

Shine Necklace

I got my Shine Necklace and I feel SO SHINY!!! :) :) Thanks Ash Lemieux. I LOVE it. Honestly, I was so tired today and every time I touched it (cause you know, you always touch the necklace you're wearing) it reminded me to be happy!

Go here:
The Shine Project

kisses, conversation hearts

1. Frank Sinatra on the record player

2. Smith making me spaghetti and meatballs. Really, my favorite food, I think.

3. I'm so so so so so tired. wasted tired. We stayed up so late watching this awesome movie last night about Morgan Freeman, William H Macy, and Christopher Walken stealing their favorite museum pieces. Then we went to the town square for the winter festival and heard this awful band sing awesome 90s alternative music, and ice sculptures. I liked it. Then we fought the super freezing horrible wind over to the store and bought delicious Valentine's candy.

4. I ate too much and my tongue tip really stings.

5. I slept for like 3 hours and now I'm really dying wasted. But glad, too. Because I got husband and Monte and Munchkin.

6. Back to the weather here. I hate the winter so much. after the fun-ness of snow and ice skating wears off it's just cold and freezing and ugly and horrid. I am looking forward to SPRING!

7. PS. our building is having a stealing the mail problem! It's so depressing. The cops came and asked us questions. It was awesome!

tonight's snack:

dill pickles
crackers with no flavor + peanut butter

oooh yes.

yesterday was tooooo lazy

Today is a day of PRODUCTION!

Also, I'm loving that this month's Ensign talks about missionary work for the 3rd month in a row. It must be important, I guess! I love that it talks about missionary couples and that it's the best time they've spent together: in service of their fellowmen. That's far away, but I really can't wait for that time. I just love spending time with Smith. I just love him. He really takes care of me.

 Then just laid there like a slug. refusing.

Feb Love

I Love Groundhog day. And the movie Groundhog day.

And I love little kitten waking us up at too early in the morning by jumping on us and getting our feet

And I love CS in his dress clothes for work. He's hot.

The snow is melting, the birds are singing, the sun is out, the ground hog did not see his shadow, but it's only 25 degrees with 17 mph winds.

I'm having a hard time getting dressed to go outside and meet CS downtown after his meeting.

I made this:
