Tiny Tim

I went to a bunch of garage sales this weekend and ended up buying hand me downs for Noah from my neighbor who has a 10 month old who outgrew his clothes. Yep, my 14 month old just got a brand new 3-6 month outfit and 6 month jeans that are TOO BIG FOR HIM STILL.

I would be more concerned, but he's hitting all his milestones (early) and is a healthy little boy. He's just tiny! Don't you just love him? :)

Anniversary Weekend

Jared and I had a great weekend getaway in Dallas, Texas-about a 5 hour drive from here. We went to celebrate 2 years of marriage and had an absolute blast! Here are some highlights:

  • Eating Mexican food
  • Getting free parking at the Texas Rangers game
  • Being at the Texas Rangers game (we both love baseball!)
  • Talking non-stop
  • Eating fruit and warm bread and feeling rich
  • Six Flags!
  • The fact that it was "gay day" at Six Flags
  • Riding about 8 rollercoasters until our bodies couldn't take it anymore- "please, no more, my brains are going to come out!"
  • Going to the Dallas temple
  • Eating an entire large pizza from Papa Johns AND a cinnapie! Then watching the Arkansas/Georgia game. The epitomy of lazy- and MAN WAS IT NICE!
  • Sleeping without waking up to feed Noah (yeah, he still doesn't sleep all night)
  • Shopping at IKEA
  • Eating a burrito from Chipotle (and planning the diet that starts now)
  • Visiting Jared's good friend Scott and his wife Larissa

It was a fantastic weekend- I'm so glad to be married to Jared, my best friend! These last two years have flown. We're stoked for year #3! :)

One Lucky Girl

It's been a stressful last few days with our car breaking down (yes, again), getting another eye infection (w/ $100 prescription drops), having my camera dropped on the cement and shattering the lens, and hardly seeing Jared b/c he's been so busy w/ work, school, and the Emergency Prep fair that he was partly in charge of. (!!!) HOWEVER, lucky me, I have a perfect husband to help me get through everything.

The other day, I woke up and began finding little slips of paper, love notes, all over the house. It turns out that while I was sleeping, Jared was awake and writing all kinds of messages to cheer me up. Here are some examples:

"You light up my life" (taped to a picture of Jesus)
"You mean the world to me" (taped to a world map)
"You're smoking hot" (found in the microwave)
"I love that you love to workout" (found in my running shoe)
"You make me smile" (found under my pillow)

I could go on and on...because there were 55 notes!!! I've found all of them, except for 3 or 4.

Cute, huh? Good job, Jared!!!

Race Pictures

I got to run a race on Labor Day with the following ladies (Where's Waldo? Can you find me?):
Some ran a mile, a 5K, or a 10K. I ran the 10K. It was the most fun I've ever had at a race! Not only was the race awesome, but it benefited a good cause (children), and it was so well organized. The after party was set up like a carnival with tons of free food and bounce arounds for the kids. Here's Jared and Noah looking pretty stoked about it all. (ha ha, not!) I swear they really did like it!

Here I am, pre-race. The morning was beautiful and foggy. Great running weather.

Excited! I love races!

And we're off. I'm in the middle of the pink shirts!

Noah waits patiently with his friends for me to finish. Awww, cute!
"Mmm, a sippy cup. Looks good," thinks Noah.
And here's as good as we get of a finish line shot. I look wasted by the finish line. That works.

Hooray! Victory! I did it!

Living the Dream

I don't have a whole lot of time to blog, but I thought I should update with a few pictures from the past couple weeks.
Our little dinosaur!!!

Mom made a quick visit here to pick up Kallie to drive her back to BYU. We had a fun time eating junk food and playing with our favorite little friend.

Jared's been going to school full time and working full time, in addition to church callings which seem to be full time. So, we enjoy spending every spare second together as a family.
Enjoy the Labor Day weekend. We know we will!!! :)
