Last One Ever!!

So this week Joey and I started our last semester of college!! Yes! I feel like I can breath a little... We have each had a long journey through school. We are both pretty lucky that school is not a total challenge for us... I mean, what do you need to know for plumbing? 3 basic rules: poop runs downhill, dont chew on your finger nails, and payday is on friday :-) Just kidding, plumbing is actually a very challenging trade. I'm so happy for Joey that he will finally be a Journeyman this year, he has worked so hard and I am very lucky to share his whole journey with him!!
I, myself have had a pretty easy time getting through school, even though I knew Cosmetology/ Esthetics was my calling in life, I was pretty excited to go into an easy profession..... NOT! Oh my gosh, sitting in class the first day I remember thinking... What have I gotten myself into?!?! It was a challenge to learn everything. Next time you think hairdressors are dumb.... think again! Its so fun, but there is a LOT that goes into everything. But never-the-less I'm still obsessed with it and I dont think I work a day now. :-) I'm also very excited to get my Master Esthetics license. I think it will be amazing working for a doctor, I just love it and I am so excited!

Our next step.... Get a house! Cross your fingers and hope for the best :0)

Great Start To A New Year!

Last Friday night we had the kids, Sam and Elizabeth sleep over. It was fun, like usual, and it always give Miah and Belinda a night free. We started out with some delicious pizza and went right to the couch afterwards to play Super Mario Brothers for the Wii... which might I add.. it difficult to start with, but with the little rugrats playing running around everywhere, man its anxiety city! But... still fun to see them having such a great time.

When it came to be bedtime, kids being kids, wanted to play with Joey and put on their cute little Ute hats. They both had to get pictures with Uncle Joey.. I personally think it was something to milk the clock to go to bed, but who cares were the cool aunt and uncle right??

Saturday morning, Joey and Sam woke up early and took off to Strawberry with Jereld and Terry, their dad. They went ice fishing... something I dont fancy myself.. I like to be warm =0) They had a great time, not too much action with the fish, Terry caught 2 which was pretty good I guess. They were out there for a while, just being boys, having a great time. Joey loved watching Sam have a great time, he loves that kid!

I'm excited to have memories of our own with our own kids, like we have had with Sam and Liz... that is when we actually decide to grow up...

We're looking forward to lots more sleepovers this year!!

Goodbye 2009... Hello 2010

Can you believe its 2010 already?? 2009 flew by.....

I can say that I am sad to see the year gone, it was by far the best year of my life. We have so many great memories from this year...

My most favorite memories from 2009:

  • Going out with friends, all the fun times we had being silly and not having a purpose of doing anything. Those always end up being the best nights.
  • Family time, friends will come and go but you will always have family. Out to dinner with the family, laughing at my crazy uncle and dad whom I love very much, living so close to my mom, I see so much more of her now. Spending an obscene amount of hours sitting on my brother and sister's couch, the one Joey just LOVES. If only we could write a book about everything we talk about...
  • Getting married to my best friend. This has been the best 6 months of my life with him, and I am totally confident the feelings that I have for him will never lessen.

Both Joey and I are looking forward to what the year brings to us. By the time 2011 comes around we hope to have our own little house and have a cute puppy so we can expand our little family.. and yes i mean a DOG, that's not a hint about anything else :-)

Have a great year!!
