All about Trav

I stole this...or was tagged I guess, from Laura!

My best friend!

hahahahaha....good times at the Planetarium! (Trav is on the left)

What is his name? Travis Jay Smith

How long have you been together? We have been together for 3.5 years now! However, we have known each other for 11.

How old is he? 22

Who eats more? It's probably about the same...

Who said 'I love you' first'? Aww...him. :) It's one of those stories that you see all of the time in movies...Talking on the phone, or face to face...guy mumbles I love you, girl hears him but still says "what" to make him say it again...haha, yeah. I was that girl :)

How tall is he? Uhm...probably about 5' 7" that how you write it? lol it looks weird to me.

Who can sing better? Depends on who you are asking the question to. We are both very competetive so we would both probably say ourselves, lol. I am going to say him though. He will openly when we are playing Rockband. I won't.

Who is smarter? It depends on what kind of smart. I am better with the computer and that kind of stuff. He is TONS better with History, and Science, and sometimes common sense stuff, lol. He watches the science channel, animal planet, history channel, and all of them religiously though!!

Does he do the laundry? We both do the laundry, thank goodness :) The only thing he will not touch are the towels. I am pretty picky about how towels are folded so he leaves that for me.

Who pays the bills? Me. He will remind me, but I do all the budgeting and all that.

Who sleeps on the right side? He does, so I can be by the alarm clock.

Who mows the lawn? When we have a lawn to mow, he does.

Does he cook dinner? ONCE in a while but most of the time it is me.

Who drives? We switch off..mostly him.

Who is more stubborn? Travis! haha. Just kidding...we are probably both about the same, which is bad!

Who kissed who first? Travis kissed me first :)

Who asked who out first? Travis again. Man...I should have made some sort of attempt too! I feel bad now, lol.

Who has more friends? That would have to be me. haha. I'm definitely the more social one of the two of us.

Who is more sensitive? Isn't the girl always the more sensitive one?

Who has more siblings? Me for sure!

Who 'wears the pants'? I think it is about the same.

So, now you know a little bit more about the man I love. Feel free to consider yourself TAGGED if you read this ... or anyone who wants to do it, ... so you can tell us about the man you love!

A day at work...

One of the things I love about my job is that it is something new everyday! In the training department, we don't have a WHOLE lot on our plate so it leaves us open to doing these types of things. Or things like training the entire call center on something day. Or things like taking calls when we are super busy. It is nice. Don't get me wrong...we have our things that need to be done everyday and some days there are not enough hours to get everything done but the days like today are so much fun!

I spent 90% of my day working on these. We found the pics online, printed them, cut A MILLION of them, and then thought up cute things to add to make them even more festive. We are going to have a big Christmas tree in our breakroom and these will be the ornaments, after the operators take one and write something good about someone else on them! Awesome right?

Anyway, to start the trend, we wrote them for each other after we finished:

It's hard to see all of the designs unless you click on the picture and make it huge, but we made stockings with glitter...that got ALL over our desks, and floor :S. The vaccuum crew will love us tonight! :) haha, little bows, snowmen, Christmas trees, and little gingerbread men!

I probably won't post again until after Thanksgiving so have a wonderful Turkey and crazy shopping day!!

The one about the best dog in the world!

This is Trey! Our pitbull. He is going to be 3 years old in June and we have had him for the entire time. We got him when he was about a month old. He is really special to us and has an awesome story behind him! Trav and I had been talking about getting a dog for a long time. It was mostly me that wanted him, but Travis never really said no. So, WE had been talking about getting a dog for a really long time :). Travis went to hang out with his dad for a weekend so Kassi and I went to Idaho to go visit some old friends. While there, my best friend Mari said that her parents just got a dog from somewhere that they really didnt want because they already had too many. She said she didnt know what kind it was but that it kind of looked like a pitbull. Well, I BEGGED her to take me to go look at it. A pitbull was exactly what we wanted. So, we go look at him. I get there and he is curled up next to the stairs, all by himself. He had something wrong with his leg and you could tell when he would get up and walk, he limped every time. We still don't know what it is. The doctor said as long as it is not getting worse, he is okay. We take him to the park and play fetch with him and keep him very active so we have noticed a significant change in his leg :) Anyway, so I picked him up and instantly fell in love. I had to have this dog. So, on our way to Target to buy him everything he needed and start the spoiling process, we are on the freeway and we look over and notice a "hott guy" I am obviously with Travis but Mari was single so we start to tell her MARI! Look! She agreed that he was hott, grabbed a piece of paper from my car, wrote down her number, and MY name...haha I have no idea why. I told her that what if they started to seriously date, how would she explain that she wrote down MY name because she didnt want him to have hers?! So she crosses out my name and puts her name hahaha...then sticks it up to the window. So what does said hott man do? He picks up his phone and calls it right away. Keep in mind...this whole time we are driving side by side. Mari's phone starts to ring and she looks at it and says "Oh my god guys, what do I do?!" We're like uhh...probably answer since he is watching you freak out right now! So, long story short...she answers, they talk, they hang out. Fast forward a year and a half. They are married with one kid and another on the way! Isn't that adorable? ALL because we went and picked up Trey!

So, there is a little bit of a background on the best dog ever! I really should post some younger pics of him, because I have a million! But here are a few very recent ones that I wanted to share!

We bought him a bone last night and gave it to him after he ate. At first he was SO stoked! You could tell after a few minutes though that he looked scared. He knows he is not supposed to chew on anything in the house. Haha, apparently he thought that was the same for his bone. So Travis gave it to him again, because he dropped it and went to the other side of the room, and kinda played with him for a min to let him know it was okay. Once we passed that point? He would not let go of it. He LOVED it and finished the entire thing in about two hours, lol. I thought it was so cute how he took it to his bed and just chilled with his bone.

This was the HARDEST picture to get! I had to say his name like 5 times and FINALLY he looked up like what the hell do you want?? I'm busy!

This was a few nights ago. I noticed he was shivering cuz he was cold one morning when I woke up to get ready for work! :( So I tried to put a blanket on top of him to see what he would do. He woke up, looked at me, and went right back to sleep...SO CUTE!!

How do they do it?

So we just got cable/internet/phone hooked up through Comcast. I cannot tell you how excited we are about it. At first I was just excited to not go through DirecTv anymore...which is a WHOLE different story that is very long so I will just give you the moral of the story. DO. NOT. GO. THROUGH. DIRECTV. No matter what they offer you. Sometimes it is free gas, sometimes it is first 3 months for free, sometimes it's pretty words to tell you you are getting the best possible deal! Whatever it is, NOT worth it. (This answers the question to the title of the post! They BEG and BRIBE their customers!)

Anyway, back to Comcast. They come to install the cable yesterday (We've had internet and phone through them for a couple of weeks now) and Trav and I were just messin with it when we got home last night. Turns out 1) They provide HD, for free. Which by the way Trav is obsessed with. I wont talk about the 2 hours he spent flipping from one channel in HD to another that was NOT in HD saying Babe! Look at the difference, can't you tell?? OH man, I can't believe we have gone all this time without this! Wow, look at the floor on this one, then on this one! Look at his face on this one, then on this one. Haha, good times. 2) They have DVR service, which is one of the main reasons I initially went with DirecTv. I had NO idea Comcast had that as well! 3) They have on demand so you can basically watch a movie whenever you would like to. You can watch MUSIC VIDEOs and hook it up to the stereo so it sounds and looks great. We love and watch intervention all of the time and guess what?! It is on demand! Anytime we want to watch intervention, is waiting for us on channel 1! 4) It is cheaper than DirecTv and you get more channels. 5) They have NO contracts at all and no installation fees but they still have promotions going all of the time because I think they love and really care about their customers! 6) and maybe my favorite feature, we have freekin karaoke on our TV!!! Singing party at my house soon to come!

We are so excited, haha probably too excited for just a silly cable switch. If anyone is thinking about which company to get their cable/satellite through, we would definitely suggest Comcast. :)

p.s. Comcast, if you read this post...I think you should pay me a little. I just TOTALLY sold your service!

Happy voting day everyone!! Let's 1) vote and 2) cross our fingers for Obama!

I have been pretty busy these past couple of weeks but I wanted to write just a few things. Halloween was great. We all hung out at Grandma and Grandpa Wooten's house. Grandpa made a big, yummy pot of chili! We played games and passed out candy all night! Probably my favorite story from Halloween (and it is a hard one to beat...but we will see what happens next year) is this:

Two little twin boys walk up to the door. (Our first trick or treators so I jump up all excited to give them some candy!) I open the door and they just stare at me and say nothing so I say to them "What do you say?" These two little boys didn't say anything to each other, or even look at each other as a matter of fact, but at the same time said "You're Welcome?!?" We all started laughing and their mother, standing in the driveway behind them starts to laugh so I say "Trick or....?" and they both say "TRICK OR TREAT!" Haha, it. was. adorable.

Grandma, Auntie Tammy, Auntie Kristine, and I went to Wendover Sunday/Monday. We all drove out there with the intentions of coming back Sunday afternoon by 5 so we could have a birthday party for Grandma, Kassi, and Uncle David. (Yes, I know. We are procrastinators when it comes to birthdays in the Wooten family. You might be it normal to have 3 people's birthday's at one time? Well, yes. The answer is yes.) Anyway, so we are in Wendover having a great time. It comes time to leave and well, me and Auntie Kristine arent ready yet! Honestly, when can you be READY to leave Wendover unless you are completely out of your spending money? So, I call the bus and find out that there is one that takes you back to Salt Lake and it leaves at 10pm. PERFECT! Grandma and Auntie Tammy go home, and Jessica and Auntie Kristine stay! The first hour sucked because for some reason the ATM wasn't reading my debit card and Grandma left with my purse, which had my money! Finally, I was able to get some cash and then I played off of $20 for the other 2-3 hours. I had a blast and am ready to go back!

Another piece of important news: AUNTIE KRISTINE EXTENDED HER TRIP!! She will now be here until the 12th of November! YAY :)
