We are at our house cleaning today so we can move our belongings in tomorrow. (thanks friends who are helping, and shame on you to those who are not, JK). This is us in our final walk through when we received our copy of the key. Exciting right?

I love this picture because it is SO Steven. He always does this look, the neck angle is all that changes from time to time. He's a fun dude. I heart him. I think this might be the Christmas card. It was done with the iPhone so it's not the greatest quality but it is SO us.

I just got done wrapping some awesome Christmas presents. I love Christmas. Steven and I go all out every year and spoil each other rotten. I love it. I really spoiled him this year! I can't wait to see his face on Christmas morning.

The current owner has signed the papers and now the bank has them. We should hear back by Wednesday. Send happy thoughts please. I'll post Picts as soon as it is official. I don't want to brag about something that isn't mine. (and it is totally worth bragging about).
P.S. Who else has to work on Thanksgiving?

Growing up I always had cats. Lacey, My gma's fat simese cat, would sleep with me at night. She would also guard my door to make sure I was safe from preditors. She was my nanny. Cagney, was Lacey's sister. She only loved my gma. She would put up with me because she had to. I would always try to get her 'break' and love me like Lacey but she was always loyal to my gma and me second. Actually she was more a gpa lover but he worked during the day so until he came home she didn't want anyone but gma. Smokey-Joe was a grey long haired mutt I found living on the corner by our house. I started to feed him so he wouldn't die. I must have tugged at gma's heart strings because he quickly became a member of the family. Cagney and Lacey quickly accepted him as their little brother. A little while later we had two more kittens flock to our back yard. They were brother and sister. We named them Sunny and Sabrina. Gma was against having 5 house cats so we just fed them in the back yard. Sunny warmed up to us quickly but Sabrina had a wild heart and couldn't love us like Sunny. Sabrina finally disappeared and gma felt bad for Sunny because he was alone so we quickly became a 4 cat family. Sunny is the last of the original 4 awesome cats I grew up with.
So If you haven't noticed I really want a cat. Here are some of the cute pictures I found to suppress my urge while I patiently wait...
PRINCESS ALWAYS SLEPT IN THE SINK OR THE TUB. SHE LOVED IT.

No I dated people at other High Schools. I did always want to date Nelson Diamond. Don't judge! I was young!
2. What kind of car did you drive?
95 Volvo, Red
3. What is your most embarrassing moment in high school?
Wearing a stupid two piece at swim team tryouts freshman year.
4. Were you a party animal?
Hmmmm yes I would say I was.
5.Where you considered a flirt?
I don't know...was I?
6. Were you in band, orchestra, or choir?
7. Were you a nerd?
Ha ha nope I don't think I was.
8. Were you on any varsity teams?
9. Did you get suspended/expelled?
No, not in high school but I did in middle school.
10. Can you still sing the fight song?
All I remember is OHS! at the end.
11. Who were your favorite teachers?
I seriously cannot remember any names. Does that mean they didn't leave a lasting impression or does it mean my memory sucks?
12. Where did you sit during lunch?
Usually my house or somewhere other than school. If I stayed at school it was the front steps freshman year and then it was the lunch room with Emily, Jen, Shannon, and Pennie.
13. School Mascot?
14. Did you go to homecoming and with who?
I did. But I went to Fremont Highs as well as Weber's.
15. If you could go back and do it again, would you?
16. What do you remember most about graduation?
I remember being so nervous to walk across the stage in my black heels. I made it across without falling. I could hear my parents screaming at the top of their lungs. 5 years later I graduated from college in the same black heels and with my wonderful parents and husband screaming for me!
17. Where did you go senior skip day?
Senior skip day occurred weekly for me.
18. Have you gained weight since then?
yes but I am only 20 pounds away from my old weight. I'll be there soon!
19. Who was your prom date?
Which prom? I went with Kyle, Jeremy, and Kris.
20. Are you planning on going to your 10 year reunion?
Probably not. I think reunions are for people who want to show off where they are in life and how cool they still think they are. I don't have time to sit and compare kid stories. Especially since I don't have kids. I keep in touch with those I liked. Blogs and facebook are great ways to do that.
21. Looking back, what advice would you give yourself?
Not to date a douche bag, consume carbs before a party, <--or just don't go to the party and avoid the aftermath, the rainbow socks were never cool and never a good idea. I would tell myself to chew a bigger piece of gum the day I put my gum in Stephanies hair. Wow there are a lot of things I would tell myself. Maybe that would be another good blog post.

stars are out tonight
and you're the brightest one shining in my sky.
it's like every wish I ever made came true.
the day I woke up lying next to you.
will you be my best friend
if I offer you my heart?
'cause it's already yours.
we could hang out every night
and watch the sun go down.
as long as we could watch it rise again.
gave me a valentine.
it's these little things that stand the test of time.
I've saved the tickets from the shows that we've been to.
and a thousand other memories of you.
gave you this i.o.u. today.
it said good for one galaxy.
once I build my rocket to the stars.
we'll fly away just you and me.

Yes we are moving again. This is the 3rd move in 3 years. Not only will it be our 3rd but we will be moving a 4th time and it will still be inside of 3 years. YUCK!
So here is the story....We moved to Provo so I could go to Nursing School. Since I am done (graduated) we are getting the H-E-double hockey stick out of here. So we got approved to buy a house and found a house we really like. So what did we do? We put an offer on it! YAY! Yeah not as exciting as you would think. Buying a house is a lot of nail biting and waiting. I hate it. So while we wait to hear back on the house we are moving into the in-laws basement. Steven works in Sandy and has been commuting from Provo for 2 years now. I got a job in West Jordan and the drive from Provo really sucks so this is our only option.
Luckily my in-laws rock. So that is my sob story I hope you enjoyed it. If you would like further detail on the house let me know. I really don't want to say too much though because we don't know if we got it yet and who knows how long that could take. :(

I just bought this. I love it. It covers really well and doesn't feel like it is on at all. It's awesome. I just need some miracle face wash that takes care of my acne, oily t-zone, dry cheeks, and just overall freaky skin.
Brit and I are going to get our toes done tonight. YAY! It is going to be so fun. I haven't had my toes done since last Thanksgiving. I think I will do a little design of the big toe.
