Today, its food... Oh I love food and Im actually pretty hungry right now! I recently watched the movie Julie and Julia. I loved it! Not like its a really great story or action packed or anything (Richard would have hated it!) but I just love to watch people create yummy food. I am not a great cook by any means, mostly cause Im lazy and prefer instant gratification like top ramen. Id like to be a great cook, but Im a simple girl. Here are my favorites:
#1 I LOVE LOVE LOVE Top Ramen! Most people eat it because its cheap. I eat it cause I love it. I am a top ramen snob and will eat only Maruchan brand. Its delicious and I will eat it everyday. Not so healthy but I do put frozen peas and chicken in there occassionally. Its extra yummy when you sprinkle in some crushed red pepper flakes!
#2- My favorite meal (also pretty unhealthy) is Chicken Divan. Its one of our family staples, ive grown up on the stuff, and I love it! The first time I made it for Richard he was scared to try it (it doesnt look so appealing) but he LOVED it too! Now he wants me to make it all the time.
#3 If you ask any person who knows me, what my favorite place in the whole world is, they would say CHILIS!!! I never get sick of it. Growing up we had a Chilis just down the road from us and it was the place we would go after all the school events, birthdays, special occasions, etc.
I die for Chilis Chips and Queso. In Washington there is no Chilis (id say the main reason I hate it here) and no matter where any one travels to, their number one item to bring back to me is Chips and Queso. I will never get sick of it, and I will eat it every day if I can. If anyone out there would like to make my life, all you have to do is send me some chilis and i will love you forever.
If I could choose one meal to eat for the rest of my life, it would be Chilis chips and queso with Chilis combo fajitas. PERFECTION!! I have eaten pretty much every item on the menu and the fajitas are my absolutely favorite. My mouth is watering right now. Oh my loves!
Dad and Kailey again were the only one's who got a burger, but it looked delicious! My idea of a successful trady is when you walk away full... Mission accomplished! Good Times...
PS we missed the Lotts, Richard, and Scottee this time, better luck next year!
Im gonna say that 10 years from now when we're millionaires we are going to look back on this pic and laugh... our make shift photo studio... I think you'll find that the pics turned out quite nicely!
So for all of you who love shoes, purses, and jewelry.... be excited for Sassy Pose! We're hoping to be up and running before Thanksgiving! Stay tuned for details.
Things have been SO busy! Melissa and I are starting our new business, Sassy Pose! We are trying to get everything off the ground in the next couple of weeks. So for those of you who love shoes, bags, and accessories, get EXCITED! More info to come on that...
My dad has been working in St George for the last couple of months, but has still had a place here. He loves there to be a gathering place for all us kids (Scottee and Kailey especially) but he doesnt just want the house to be un-manned. So dad got a new place and Melissa and Chris are living there and maintaining "The Cave" as we are calling it.
We have spent the that couple of weeks getting Melissa and Chris all moved in and set up. Moving is always a lot harder than you ever plan. Its even worse because there is everyone's stuff housed at my dads place and a garage full of my storage. Its been a full time job lately. We have also enjoyed selling so much stuff on Craigslist and making some money to feed all the teenagers :)
I am enjoying living with my mom and being able to spend time with her and my sisters (minus Christie of course... wish you were here!) And I am loving working for my dad and being able to take care of my health a little better since Im not so stressed out all the time. Overall things are good!

I quit my job at the Optometry office. Im going to be working for my dad and saving up money for beauty school. I am so grateful for the chance to make money in a stress-less environment!
I left my little apartment and moved into my mom's house, which is a really big change. I dont mind being with my family, its just hard when youve been living on your own for so long and now all the sudden there are people all over the place (and peoples messes) and its a family rather than just me and Richard.
And, Richard and I are going to be apart for a while... I dont know how long (thats really the change of plans thing I was talking about). I just barely was making the transition into married life and here is another transition.
Its really strange how life throws curveballs at every turn. You think and plan for stages, ok graduate college, get a job, get married, start a family, but its not really turning out the way I planned... ugh, life is so annoying.
Back to square one... AGAIN!
We took some time to dance it up...
I have been getting all ready to move. Those of you who know me well, know that I have checklists and piles and time frames... moving is always stressful cause there is SO much to do you dont even realize, change your address, cancel your utilities, get a storage space, ect... you dont even know how much stuff you have until you start to pack, and its a lot of stress deciding what needs to go into storage and what doesnt.
Richard is off to San Diego for a week. Unfortunately his grandfather passed away last week, but luckily Richard gets to go down for the funeral. I know he has been missing his family an awful lot, so Im really grateful that he gets to go, but that leaves me here dealing with everything else.
Melissa and I have been training to start working for my dad which is great, but hard considering I have to work all day then drive to Sumner (about 30 min) and work some more at night. I cannot wait until I can concentrate on one thing so my brain isnt going to explode all the time.
Good news is that I am all set up for beauty school. I was hoping to start in November but I missed the deadline so I wont be starting until January. I was so proud of myself for getting everything from applying to financial aid to transcripts etc. all taken care of in just one week!
Let me just say that I have LOVED having my family here... we miss Christie all the time, but we have been having a lot of fun with Melissa back in town. In the next couple of weeks it will be even better cause I will be living with mom again and I wont have to drive everytime I want to hang out... I have the best family and Im so grateful that we all get a long so well!
The next couple of weeks are going to be so hard with all the changes, please remember to keep us in your prayers... and stay posted for updates! Love you all!
Anyway, I decided to bite the bullet... my mom has been begging me since I was in high school to go to beauty school, but I figured I could never make very much money from it. But since I dont make very much money anyway, WHY NOT!
So I applied today for beauty school!! Im super excited. I am not planning on actually making a career out of it, but my mom and I want to build a salon in her basement and have clients come get their hair done and my mom can do their facials!
Luckily my dad is needing some help with his business ventures so I can work for him while Im going to school, its like 1200 hours... yikes! Then when I have kids it will be easy for me to work from my moms house. Its a brillant idea!
What do you think about that?
Chris and Scottee dug a really big hole... almost 6 feet deep!
Workin in the kitchen.... We had a great time with the family!
