As of Late

So, we don't ever celebrate Valentine's day. Even when we don't celebrate it's just an awful day every year. Ugh! But even when we don't celebrate, Dad always does! Dad brought us a heart shaped congo bar!! Yumm! I ate practically the whole thing myself.

Then it was Richard's birthday this week, we don't celebrate that either so... life has been uneventful. Dad did drop by Chili's chips and queso for the NON celebration of Richard's 26th. (we can always count on dad for a celebration!) Work is super busy and overwhelming. Richard is still looking for a job so just pray for that. Billy Bob is still being repaired so we have a rental car.

Other than that, life is St George isn't great yet, but at least that is something to look forward to.


Really? Already?

Well, we have been in St George for a total of 5 days... it was obviously time for some stress to happen. If you know the last year I have been through, you know that my life is not complete without some drama... Here we go.

Last year Richard was in the hospital for about a week because he was having fainting spells. He would just pass out for no reason. They didnt really find any cause of it, but did say that there was a possibility of a minor blood clot traveling toward the brain...

Ok, so he hasnt been fainting for at least... 8 months... So I call him yesterday to bring me lunch at work. Our apartment is seriously a block away from my office. (im not lazy, I just couldnt get away to get lunch) Any way, it was taking him a while to get there so I called and he was like "you have to get down here, I hit a car!" Keep in mind, my last post was about buying our new car just last week. I get there and here is what I see....

Richard turned out of our apartment complex and passed out for like 5 seconds, when he woke up he had hit a parked car! Oh that other car was MESSED up! The whole wheel was stripped off the bolts and the axle was bent... Im surprised that our Ford messed up a Toyota like that. Billy Bob (0ur car) is still drivable, we need to get the alignment fixed, but luckily there was no damage to the engine or anything... Im so glad we got a GREAT car (even if everyone is hating on Fords)

That poor guy... he just came out of his apartment to find his car trashed... luckily he was super cool and not angry at all... which was good cause I was a wreck! Anyway, the ambulance took Richard away because of the fainting thing, but not until after the cop gave Richard a ticket for driving without a license.

At the hospital they said that his blood sugar is super low and they think he might be diabetic... AHHHH!!! So we have been in St George 5 days and have already wrecked the car, been to the hospital, and have to pay a traffic ticket....

I am so excited to see what else this Utah life has in store for us...



A whirlwind of a weekend for us... I flew up to Washington on Wed. to spend some time with my mommy and sisters before the madness started. It was so great! We spent some time at Ikea, the ate dinner at Olive Garden.. yummy.

On Thurs. Richard flew in from San Diego. We went straight from the airport to the car dealership. Richard found this Explorer, which we LOVE! We got such a great deal on it and drove him right off the lot. We had some debate on what his name was going to be. I wanted Diego, he wanted Billy Bob... Richard won in the end, so here is Billy Bob with us...

We got everything packed up and left early Saturday morning. We drove through the mountains straight from Bonney Lake to Rexburg! We got into Rexburg in the middle of the night. Nikki and Nelson waited up for us and had a little bed ready when we got there. We LOVED LOVED spending time with them, even if it was just for a quick second.
We woke up early on Sunday and took a quick tour of Rexburg. I was amazed at how much Rexburg has changed in the four years since Ive been there. I do not miss the snow AT ALL... and I feel for all of you that live there...
We had to leave Rexburg in a hurry so that we could get down to Salt Lake in time for the Super Bowl. We checked into the hotel and enjoyed watching the SAINTS win!!!!
We took a quick tour of Temple Square that night... it was really cold! Richard really enjoyed seeing everything for the first time, and we hope to go back up for General Conference this April.
By Monday morning, we were sick of driving and were in a hurry to make the last leg of the journey. We were even more ready to get rid of the stupid UHAUL attached to Billy Bob... driving with that guy through the mountains was a pain!!

So here we are finally in St. George. Our new home sweet home... Richard is looking for a job, so if you know of anything, let us know. We are excited to be here... and I look forward to posting pics of our new apartment once its all cute and decorated!

If you're driving through, stop by and see us! We have a guest room!
