London 2012


I am so excited for the Olympics this year!
www.nbcolympics.com will be my lifesaver
no TV at the Olsen home (not on purpose or for some we're better than you thing)

I have been gearing up for my favorite event
by watching plenty of this

don't judge

California Dreamin'

Cat's out of the bag! 
We are headed to So Cal for Trent's birthday in July.
 I can't help but drool over all of these fun beach necessities (I wish, if I had a bajillion dollars). 
I did get a new swim suit (at sams club.. so what!?) for the occasion, 
and borrowed beach towels from the parentals... 
yeah we live pretty much in the lap of luxury. 
Don't be jealous of my Sams Club goodness.

Good Find

For any of you that know me, I am quite a particular person.
I seriously wish I was laid back.
I like to be in the know... about EVERYTHING.
That being said, when T and I were talking about Europe, I had a heart attack
I have to sleep in the room with a stranger!?
Heck no.
Then I found airbnb.com
I am a little more secure about our living situation over there now
I am excited to see 
Eiffel Tower #Eiffel Tower 
this and eat one of these
Crepe - Paris 
then we head over here
then we head home- but I might be just a little more excited
about seeing my new niece... just sayin.

I promise I will take a break from the vacation postings- next one won't be until August 
after T's surprise birthday trip.

Yet again...

I have decided to torture myself once again... I am going to train for another half marathon. Each time my training has been awful, so I decided to change that. First half- I trained in 4 weeks and fractured my foot. Second Half- lied to myself that I was training, first married and had put on weight= awful experience. This time this is my training schedule- hold me to it k?

Our Summer so far

Not much as been going on around here worthy to note I guess- other than children on train tracks. Here are a couple things going on! 
1. We are SO excited for this show to start. Even subscribed to HuluPlus so we don't have to wait 8 days (patience.. what's that!?)

2. T did his first Triathlon of the season.. and finished 4th in his age group
3. We ran 2 5k's in 3 days with my mother-in-law
40 minutes and 32 minutes- she is a rock star
4. In case some of you didn't know,
we will be staying at the Y for another 2 years for T's Masters Program in Art History.
5. T spends his days at the Springville Art Museum being a Stewart Fellow
6. I spend my days planning for the fall and beyond
 (deeply researching catering menus, and going to tastings, shoot right?
, redoing syllabi, updating student jobs, planning the Dominican Republic trips
 and also football getaways)
7. Achievements: T's was mentioned above and mine is that I pulled weeds without complaining... outloud. We also booked tickets to Paris in December, tickets to Boise for the BYU vs BSU game, tickets to the Dominican Republic for Feb 2013 and I even planned a trip for T's birthday (destination is a surprise)
8. We are so excited for Chelsea, Kevin and Madeline to come up in the next few weeks
