Peter's Dance Moves

Check out this video. I saw it on a friends blog and almost died laughing. Does it not remind you of Peter dancing? I promise he has some of the same moves!


Chevy's Happy Hour

A couple days ago, Peter and I discovered the most amazing things (or dangerous thing). Chevy's Mexican Restaurant has a happy hour where a lot of the drinks and appetizers are only three dollars. That mixed with the fact that they have the best chips and salsa in the world; there is no better place to go for a cheap dinner! I am obsessed with their flautas and can now get them for only 3 dollars. I don't know if you guys understand just how amazing this find is. Chevy's is one of my most favorite restaurants and it just got even better. Enjoy!

Just a bunch of random things

I feel like there haven't been any huge events in the last few weeks to really write about. Plus I am the worst at taking pictures, I just always forget. So here are a bunch of random things that have happened and thoughts.

- Last weekend we went out with some friends to dinner and the temple. Chris is a classmate of Peters'.

- On Sunday, Elder Eyring, an Apostle of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints came to our ward. It was a totally surprise and a very welcomed one. He bore his testimony for a moment and I swear he was just talking to me. He talked about how the Lord knows every sparrow that falls. He is aware of all of our disappointments, heartaches and pains. He knows us! Elder Eyring reminded us to remember this and to feel it as we partake of the Sacrament each Sunday. Although I have known these things, I always seem to forget. Hearing the words spoken on Sunday were truly an answer to my prayers and my personal yearnings.
- So my friend Meg is a hair dresser and last night I finally got my hair done. I haven't had it done since October and I had probably 3 inches of darker roots. Also last night, Meg walked me through how to do highlights and then I actually did them on her hair. It was late and so I haven't seen how poor and amature they look yet with her hair dry, but it was still fun. I really want to learn how to do that kind of stuff!

- The weather is changing out here and I am loving it. The blossoms are out and the tulips have emerged. Here are some pictures of the tree on the other side of our porch. These trees are everywhere out here and it just makes me happy every time I see them.
I've learned over the last few weeks:
- just how patient my husband is. Thanks Peter.
- that Pei Wei, candy, family, and Princess Diaries II can bring so much joy.
- that I'm not alone.
- that we can do the things we want/hope to, we just have to be patient sometimes.
- that life is good, I have much to be grateful for.

Another Shout Out

I'd like to give a little shout out to my sister, Heather. My sister just continues to amaze me with everything she does. In this time where people are loosing their jobs and many are feeling insecure that they may loose theirs shortly, my sister got a promotion. A big one! And not only did she get a promotion but she came in 7th in the U.S. in sales within her company. She works for a company that leases business space to a variety of businesses throughout the world. So yeah, my sister is one of the top sellers in her company and it's only her first month in her new position. Who does that?! I am proud of myself if I just make it through the day, but not my sister, she's such a hard worker.

In addition to being great at her job, my sister is a great friend to me. She is there to listen when I need her and constantly boosts me up when I need it. She is a darling mother to her two girls, always trying to make them happy. One thing I love about my sister is that she makes friends with everyone she meets. People love her because she's so friendly, considerate and doesn't judge their circumstances.
She's pretty impressive, my sister, and I just thought everyone should know it.

Ever get sick of working?

I'm getting really bored with working everyday. It just becomes so routine and I don't love it. Is this just how it is as an adult?

Did you know....

that if you mix these two candies (Sour Patch Kids and Twizzlers) together, you've get an EXTRA delicious treat? This has honestly been one of my favorite candy combinations for years now. I love it and even crave it often (even though I'm suppose to be an adult now). It seems to somehow make everything happy again. You should try it sometime.

A happy day

Two Sundays ago was a really happy day. I was in San Diego attending church with my Aunt and one of my good friends from high school, Michelle, walked in with her family. I have not seen her in several years although we have corresponded briefly over that time.

Of course we chatted for a while after the meeting and I can't stop thinking about it. My friend Michelle has since gotten married to a great guy, joined the LDS church, and now has two kids of her own. It was so great to sit down and catch up on all the details of her life. I wish I could describe to you how happy she was. I could just tell on her face and in her voice as she described her life and being a mom. It made me so happy to see this. I can't seem to stop thinking about it and I'm getting emotional even writing about this. I just feel this burst of joy thinking about how happy she is and all the changes and blessing she has in her life.I've spent my entire life hoping that others could feel the joy I have in my life. I chose my profession because of that, I served a mission for the LDS church, and try to be a good person for that very reason. Life is about having joy and to see that someone I care about gets that and has that in her life; it just brings me even greater happiness. It reminded me once again how much joy we can receive from knowing and following Jesus Christ and through family life.

You deserve it Marianne! Plus, Brad seems to be a solid guy who treats her right. We're excited to have you in the family Brad!We just bought our tickets to fly out for the celebration and are so excited.
