On a different note...

Jesse and I were eating dinner tonight and we were having a conversation about work or something and out of no where he said, "On a completely different note, maybe next time you post something on your blog it should be positive." It took me a little off guard, but I must say I agree. I want to post something happy. So I thought I'd go thru some of my pictures and add them here and chat about the fun things I've done with some of the fun people in my life.


Here goes...

This is a picture of me and Meg from Christmas Eve 2005. We always go to my Dad's house on Christmas Eve. This tradition is on my top 5 things we do every year. It's right up there with the yearly trips to Disneyland (thanks to Jesse I have gone to Disneyland or Disneyworld once a year since we were married in 2002). In this picture we were showing off our model pose...and we were, um, successful? It's a classic twin picture....

Next there's a picture of me and my sister Ashley at the Paris restaurant in Epcot Center at Disneyworld in April of 2006. We all had heat stroke that day from the extreme heat wave that was happening in Florida, and then when we went in to the restaurant the air conditioner was too much for us, so Ashley asked them if they had a table cloth she could wrap herself in, and they brought her one. I am obviously passionate about whatever subject we were discussing...
Next we have a picture of me and Jesse with Zorg (is that the bad guy's name from Toy Story? I think it is...) from the same Disneyworld trip in 2006. That trip was so much dang fun!

Here are Meg and Quenten with Zorg (Look at the guns on Meg!!! She is so dang cool....)

This is a picture of my sister-in-law Amy, my brother Jeff, and my sisters Cambria and Marissa while we waited for the fireworks in the Magic Kingdom:

And here is a picture of me, Ashley and Meg waiting in the Indiana Jones line:
Another picture of me and Meg making kissey faces....I think we need to try something different, we obviously have a problem...And finally in May of 2006 Jesse graduated from the University of Utah with his Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering. I was SO proud of him! It was a long 4 years of being alone for me, and 4 years of him working his butt off, so we truly enjoyed his graduation day. And look at how good he looks in his cap and gown! Oh, and he also gave his sash to me. You are supposed to give the sash to the person who motivated you and helped you graduate. It was very sweet of him to give it to me :)
Here we are with his "boyfriend" Clifton (it was a little inside joke that I had with Clifton's wife Melinda, because both of us would hear every day about how much fun our husband's had with each other...they were pretty much in-separable for their 4 years of college) oh and their cute little boy Ryker is in the picture as well (isn't he PERFECT?!)

I just posted a lot of things from 2006. Next time I will post some fun things we did in 2007 and then after that in 2008. So, more pictures to come :)

How fun. Aren't blunt husbands great? I always hate it when Niel gives me advice at first, but I am usually so grateful after I've humbled down a bit, and he really doesn't do it very often so I know he really means something when he says it.

Oh, and I think its Zerg...not totally sure though. That is so fun that you've been able to go to Disneyland or world every year! I haven't been since choir tour. Sad...I know.

Like you've said...we are so the same in so many ways! When we are feeling down or frustrated or overwhelmed...we have to vent about it or talk about it. Some people deal with their frustrations etc. different but you and I are talkers...and writing on the blog helps too! I'm glad I'm not the only one who uses my blog to say exactly how I'm feeling! But on another note...ha! I agree that it is nice to read and to actually write a postive or funny post myself! I liked this post! I love pictures and that picture of Jesse putting his sash on you. That is SUCH A SWEET PICTURE!!! It speaks a lot about you two!!!! Hope you have a good day! (It is snowing for you!!)
