T Graduated!

The smart pants graduated from BYU April 20, 2012  with a Double Major!
Yeah, hands off ladies. He's mine
Right after walking across the stage
Parents- Deborah and Randy
Sister Morgan
Evidently I have no idea how to do my new bangs- or it was windy.
Also welcomed this beauty into the house- thanks mom and dad in law!

Punta Cana

I take off tonight at 1am to ATL and then at 9am off to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
by myself......
I have 8 meetings in 5 days
and one massage on a "floating spa"
one limo ride
a rain shower (heck yes, it gets it's on line and shoutout)
one helicopter ride (if the weather clears up)
one good books
lots of good food
and five days without T (which means lots of skyping)

Excited level: 7 out of 10
Nervous level: 8 out of 10

Dang Snow

I have been going through a "funk" and I think the snow has put the cherry on top of it.
I might just be tired and exhausted from last week
I might be itching for change 
Change of weather, location (non work related), body shape, wardrobe who knows

I had a conversation with an acquaintance yesterday, his quote exactly
"The world would be a better place if people would stop being so type A and more laid back"
My heart sank
I am a closet type A (maybe not so closet)
An introvert (maybe just unconfident) type A
And I wish I could change it with all of my heart
I can't, it is who I am
And I am still in the process of trying to embrace it

I kinda wanted to say to this guy
"Things get done around here because of Type A's
so yeah... you can go now"  (maybe through in a 'buddy' and a finger to the chest)

But I didn't, I just shook my head

Anyways- so go away snow and give me spring
I need it right now!
Oh, and a day off

As many of you have probably noticed...
yes, I have gained weight since being home from my mission and being married.
This has part to do with my thyroid and mostly to do with
So, I decided to stop eating sugar on March 26th (hello, had to have cake on the 25th)
I was doing so well, parts of my body were kinda shrinking
until these things were dropped off...

Dang it

There is always tomorrow right (right after a trip to the gym tonight)
The ironic thing is here is a list of treats dropped off to me in the last week
cupcakes, gelato, candy bars, girl scout cookies, donuts and a milk shake.
What do I choose to eat?

Chocolate Covered cinnamon bears

I'm back!

I survived! Although I had a long week and barely feel like myself, I am glad I get a 2 week break before taking off to the Dominican Republic. Here are some pics from this weekend (and there were 0 taken during my birthday oops)
New tie for T
New Swimsuit for my niece born on Friday.
Lots of cooking (finally!). I think T was getting sick of pizzas.

Thanks to Pinterest we had some great Banana pancakes this morning
I almost bought these shoes
I am a sucker for anything mustard yellow
buuuutttt they kinda look like ballroom shoes
yes or no?

Fantastic Strawberry Lassi: conference lunch

My stay awake drink for conference

Lovely flowers from Alix (ones of the right)
The white flowers are left over from a banquet I put on Thursday night

I know the color is super trendy but i love it!
I am no fashion blogger (thank goodness) so excuse the pic.
When Chelsea, Madeline and I are shopping it usually involves pictures being sent back and forth to each other.
Buy here
Almost bought these for my little niece due in August.
Our conference set up. Our TV doesn't receive any TV so we got inventive.
Maybe one day we will not be too cheap to pay for cable.
I do miss my food network
