Funny Story

I got home from church today and noticed a missed a couple calls from a number i didn't recognize on my cell phone. I called the number back and a guy picked up. I said I missed a few calls and was just calling back and he introduced himself as someone interested in getting pictures taken. Then came the twist....he noticed that I have "fine art" in my portfolio (for landscapes, temples, etc) and he asked if I did nude photography. I went about trying to explain nicely that I didn't (because he said he had been referred by my family....) and eventually the guy starts cracking up. It was my little brother, Brenton, on his friend's cell phone. He's in Memphis selling security systems and I haven't talked to him in a while so i didn't even recognize his voice. So that's my story of my brother asking to take pictures of him naked....

Another new business!

Brock felt left out....so he decided to start his own business.  We would love help getting the word out, so if you know anyone in need of sprinkler repairs or even installing a whole system, send them our way! The business card is a lot better in color, but it's not uploading right so I had to turn it black and white....blah. Brock got his first customer today, and it's a simple fix so he's excited. The best part - the guy who called is from an "adult community" - (aka: special needs adult community) so it was oh so fun trying to work with him to get a bid. It was actually kind of sweet because Brock was really patient with all the things the guy was telling him that made absolutely no sense!

Can't sleep so I'll Blog!

So I have this new thing going for me for about the last month - I can't get to sleep! Anyone who knows me well knows that I've NEVER been one of the those people who hits the pillow and I'm gone, but lately it's a nightly struggle to finally doze into a nice sleep. So it's 2:15 am, I've taken 2 tylenol PM, and I'm still awake....So I'm going to blog about my big accomplishment today. Even though I ate tons of junk food today (like I ALWAYS do when I go to my mother-in-law's house), I decided at about 11:45 tonight that I wanted to go running. I've been wanting to go for a long time, but I keep making up excuses or just never find the time (I don't dare go in the middle of the day). I've felt really fat lately, so I actually went tonight!

My sweet husband got on his bike and came with me. He was so funny to watch cause he had to go slow to stay with me so he was doing some pretty "boyish" things to entertain himself. First, he started peddling really fast because his bike gear was in 1/1. My family likes to call it the "witch pedal style" from the Wizard of Oz. You practically are just bouncing up and down on your seat with your legs moving super fast. Anyway, that's the first thing he did. Very funny. Next, he started going really fast and then jumping the curb. I could tell he was having a lot of fun which made it funny to me. Next, he decided to stop at a valve box, take the top off, and check out the sprinkler valves the university uses. That one was totally random. The last thing he did was to go down a steep grass hill while I was still running .... and he screamed something at first when he was doing it. I don't know what is up with him, but at least it was good entertainment!

So onto my funny part....there's only one......I ran less than a mile (we think....we don't really know how long it is).....and I had to walk some of it (not alot). It was pretty pathetic because I used to run cross county and I could run 10 miles without breathing hard at the end. And this is why I feel fat!!! I actually did pretty good. I tried not to push myself too hard, but it felt good to get out there and actually do it!

The tylenol PM is kicking in - I have double vision!!!

4th of July

So anyone who knows me knows that I never go far without my camera. SO....here are some pictures of my cute nieces and cousin on the 4th of July. I already feel bad for mine and Brock's kids - they will ALWAYS have a camera on them, even on days that aren't holidays!

We spent the holiday at my in-law's house (again). We rarely ever go down to my mom's house for things (the drive to Farmington is unbearable for a certain someone in our family Ü) Just kidding - we are going to spend some time with my family on the 14th. My step-dad's whole family is going boating so I'm really excited to spend time with everyone finally. Brock worked today, too. Hopefully one day he will get a normal job where he gets holidays off because so far he's worked Thanksgiving, Christmas, and today! (plus more little holidays). I loved spending all of our first year of marriage holidays by myself....NOT!!! But, hey, we both love our job at Logan River and sacrifices have to be made.
