We're Still Alive and Idaho Spuds

Everyone apologizes for not doing blogs on a regular basis. I'm not going to, because I've already given myself a guilt trip about it. I use our blog as a way of journaling, so I've been missing out on keeping track of all the memories. There following are the reasons I have not been a good blogger/journal keeper/keep a journal commandment follower:

1. Our camera broke...a long time ago. And we haven't bought another one. So no picture = no sense in doing a blog because pictures make it fun.

2. We moved. Sure it was over 2 months ago, but I'm still recovering. Probably will be doing so for a year.

3. I feel like when I write a blog something monumental has to happen or I have to find something witty to say. Monumental things have happened, but not camera to capture it. And as far as the witty thing goes, I've not nothin'.

So to keep you all updated and so I don't forget to document this later, here is what has happened in the past little bit in no particular order:
  • May 8, 2010 ( 2:00 pm) - Garrett and I graduated from USU. Garrett in Sociology and me in Broadcast Journalism and Health and Wellness.
  • May 8, 2010 (5:00 pm) - Garrett and I moved to Rupert, ID. Land of a million dreams.
  • May, 10 2010 - I started my new job. I work at Impact Athletic and Raquetball Club teaching Zumba, Step Aerobics, Pilates, Group Power, and Boot Camp
  • May 12, 2010 - Garrett started his new job at A+ Counseling and Behavior Systems. He works will ages 3-45.
  • Went camping to Bear Lake
  • Went boating - failed to get up yet again. Don't worry though, everyone else did
  • Had the famdamily up for the 4th of July. Celebrated dad's big 4-9.
  • Emily (my sis) got married to Joshua Armstrong
  • Went to Emily's Open House in Cali
  • Hit up Disneyland and California Adventure
  • Bought our first grill...we're growing up
  • Put in a sprinkler system
  • Put in a Lawn
  • Got a puppy. Her name is Aggie. She is a black lab and super cute and sometimes obedient. (See, don't you wish I had pictures...)
  • Ran a 5k
  • Got called as Beehive Advisor in our ward. Garrett is 1st Counselor in the Elder's Quorum. Kind of sexy in a righteous sort of way.
  • Got accused of stealing gas from a Maverick. They found out they were wrong. Thank you, Maverick, for sending a policeman to my door at 7 am on a Saturday morning.
  • Went boating again. Didn't even try to get up. Realized that the tube is my domain.
That's all I can think of right now. It's a long list, I know, but I didn't want to forget anything. Someday I will show you all (and by all I mean Anna and John & Debra who are the most loyal and only blog followers) pictures of our house.
So until next time...

Thanks for including me as your loyal follower! :) I was excited to see you posted. And what the heck!? Police at 7! I think I need to hear the details of that story. I'm quite interested!

Sounds like you guys have had a busy summer so far! I am really bad at taking pictures too, so I never have anything to blog about. My camera isn't broken though, so at least you have an excuse. Your new job sounds like lots of fun. Can't wait to see pictures of your new house.

You are busy woman!! So I have an idea for you. You've probably already thought of this, but if might just work (as they say on master of disguise). Depending on where you start at the lake. When we were learning how to water ski/wakeboard, we would start on the shore (which is hard to do at bear lake) sitting on the edge of an intertube & have someone hold the back of it, so you get pulled right up & don't have the water resistance. It helps so much. If your starting out in the middle of the lake I guess you could try sitting on the edge of a big intertube & just leave someone on it so it doesn't get stollen. It make me laugh so hard that they really accused you of stealing gas. They obviously don't know you. I didn't know you taught zumba! I've never done it, but brittany wants to try it. I'm not brave enough. I'm counting down the days til school starts to I can join fun fit forever. You'd be so proud. -4lbs pre pregancy, my goal is to lose 8 more & i'll officially be the same weight I was when I was a Jr in H.S. just a different shape & form. Sorry had to share that with you, because you inspire me to be better. I bet your YW love you!
