Dear Snow,

Dear snow,
You are ruining my summer.
Go away and don't even think about coming back until december.
I hate you.
Don't show your face again.
You do not belong here.


So I got up this morning to this.


Depressing huh?
This is MAY for crying out loud! Seriously! I am not happy with this AT ALL!

But the worst part is.....
this is what it looked like when I came home from work.

Well I know I have been slacking like crazy with this blog. But I haven't been quite so sure what to blog about. Life is changing pretty quickly. Things are happening that I didn't plan. Not necessarily bad things, but it just catches me off guard. I am one that plans my life like one year in advance. Where will I be in year? Well, I thought I had a pretty good idea. Working for Highlite, living in Utah until Russ graduates. Move to Arizona. Buy a house, get a dog and start a family. Well, now my last day at Highlite is June 3rd. We are moving back to Arizona for June and July. Russ is working for my dad/ doing an internship type thing while we are down for the summer. I am going to start my own photography business for real now (scarry!) and then we move back to Utah to finish up Russ' schooling. I will find a new job, who knows what it will be, and we tough it out until we get to move back home to Arizona for real next April. Not too bad, I still in the end end up where I want to be, just have to figure out a few things until then. Let's start the adventure. I will see all you arizonians soon! I miss all of you!

Here is a picture I took while I was down for mollies wedding of some of the fam! Look how big my nieces and nephews are! So cute!

Why do we girls always complain about how fat we are. I always ask Russ "does this make me look fat?" "Is this too tight?" "Is my stomach getting bigger?" I have always fluctuated in my weight and I am sick of it. I have almost gained back the 10 lbs I lost last November. Can't I just exercise consistently? Can't I just eat healthy always? Can't I have fast metabolism? The fact is that I like to eat, I have slooowww metabolism and i Hate exercising. And I am married to a man that likes to eat more than I do. So it is a lose lose situation. I have never been a very active, sporty person ever; in fact I am not very coordinated so i do not enjoy physical activities. I wish being on the computer would burn calories because I would be one hot mama. It also doesn't help that this Utah weather will not cooperate and just get warm already. I still just want to snuggle in my blankets and never get out of bed and hibernate away forever. I wish we had windows in our apartment. Living in a basements deprives you of natural light and I think that makes you more sluggish. I can sit here and complain all day about how I feel fat but what I really need to be doing right now is doing something about it. What do you do when you hate exercising, you like food, you have slow metabolism? I don't know. Russ does not ever want to exercise with me either. But do you know what girls do when they are depressed with their weight. they eat more....

Spring is Here

Although we have had a few cold weird days, I think the weather has finally started to turn. The trees are in bloom and the earth is turning green and smells like flowers!! This is one thing i LOVE about Utah. I think i may even like spring better than the fall. The blossoming trees are my favorite part! I am obsessed with them! Russ and I took a walk in this park in downtown Salt Lake to enjoy the beauty of the spring blooms! I wish it could always look this pretty (or maybe we can get Arizona to look this pretty, i would be in HEAVEN). We decided to have our own photo shoot. it's been a while since i have posted one of those!

Then Russ and I and a few friends when to the beautiful campus of BYU to check out the blooms there. I don't know why but the white trees smell SICK. We decided they smell like fish. IT's gross but they are pretty. We had some fun looking around and hanging out there.

I'm definitely ready for some warmer weather because the summer here is so nice. now why are we coming down to phoenix agin in the hottest months? win some you lose some....
