Have you ever had one of those days...

...where you're SOOOOOOOOOOO tired, but you don't want to go to sleep, in fear of missing any excitement??

Trey has. This weekend was full of that! Finally, late Sunday night after we had an empty house, he crashed in front of the couch in the living room and I had to actually nudge him to wake him up when we went to bed!!

Weekend recap

We went fishing this weekend!! We're so excited that fishing weather is finally here!! Although we didn't catch anything, we still had a good time! I couldn't catch a picture of it but there were some people there flying *HUGE* remote control airplanes. Like, big enough that I thought someone was in them. Even after they were doing crazy twists and turns in the sky. I just figured they were crazy!! I'm glad I figured out on my own that they were just remote controlled. That would have been an awkward conversation.

Trav claims he "almost" caught Moby Dick. Conveniently enough, he only "almost catches Moby Dick" every time I'm not around.

It was super fun though!! I can't wait to go again!

Saturday night we had a BBQ with some friends, and then again on Sunday with some family! It was definitely a good break in for our new BBQ! SO looking forward to future barbecues! Hope everyone else had a wonderful weekend!!

Sneak Peek

...of our adventure yesterday.

Our new place!

aka- one of the *many* things that's been keeping us busy, busy!

After lots of driving and searching and looking and meeting and talking and deciding, we've finally found the perfect little home!

We've been here for about a week now so some things (thesparebedroommightstillbefullofboxes) still need to be done, but I can finally say the hardest part is over!! WOOHOO!!

So, of course you're wondering...what are the "goods"?

Well I'll clear that up for ya. Because I would hate for you to sit and wonder.

We now have two bedrooms.
We now have a yard.
Every room is roomier than our previous place.
I. Have. A. Garden.
I also have an area to be creative with and plant flowers.
We have the coolest little yard, setback from the street.
Our neighbors have a portable fire pit thingy and fires with neighbors from all over is a weekend norm.
We live in Sandy. =Cute neighborhood. =Close to family.
I am so so so much closer to Target.
Plus lots more. We are so stoked!!

Here are some pictures. Remember...I'm not completely done with the place, but here's what we're excited about, so far.

One of the biggest reasons we moved is because we really needed a yard. Trey needed a yard. Summer is coming. We wanted a place to sit and relax and enjoy the nice weather! (Although it has rained every day since we've had our yard..but that's another story for another day.) And well, we just really, really wanted a yard. So, when we first started moving our stuff in, the first thing we discussed was how soon we'd be able to afford a BBQ!! We decided we'd both save and get one as soon as possible! This was a must!!

Little did we know, almost at the exact moment we were talking about buying one, my wonderful family was shopping for one!!

My Grandma called me on Tuesday and said her and my Aunt were going to come by and hang out for a bit. I thought nothing of it.

An hour passed and still no Grandma.

I auto assume she's picking out some flowers for me, and some rad gardening stuff since she knew I was pretty excited about starting that up.

Finally we get a call and it's Grandma telling us to come out front and "help carry in some flowers."

I was spot on. Or so I thought!

I went straight to the back, and popped open the hatch only to find a. freekin. barbecue!!

I was so confused because I was totally expecting flowers, not this beauty!!

The first thing that came out was "For Real???" I think at that point I still thought there were flowers inside, or maybe it was stuffed with garden shovels and the works. Needless to say, it was one of the best surprises ever!! We love it!!!! Thank you so so so so so so so much guys!! :) Now we'll work on a table and some chairs and some cute lights and tiki torches! The list goes on and on!

Here are a couple pictures of our *outside* area! We love the carport thingy, and look at the view from our front door!! It's sooo nice to not be right on the street!! It's so peaceful!

Here is where I slightly brag about my flowers. I. Actually. Got. Them. To. Bloom!!! Somewhere, somehow, something was done right!! So sweet!!

Kitchen, Bedroom, and the only sliver of the laundry room I'm willing to expose at this moment.

Lots of shots of the living room. I love how it turned out!

Flowers: The result. - Part 1.

So, I just took these with my cell phone this morning, but this is how they turned out! I'm actually pretty pleased! I will take better pictures once I charge my camera! I *need* to do that tonight because I have other exciting pictures to post!!

Stay tuned :)

Planting Flowers -101.

If I taught a Gardening class, it would be called Gardening -101.

Today I am going to shop for flowers, create a pretty picture of what it should look like in my head, attempt to dig up some dirt, and plant away.

The results will be very visible as this is all taking place in our *front* yard.

Hopefully with the information you've learned today you are *racing* to the bottom of this post where it says "Add a Comment." There you can give me ANY information you feel may help me in this process.

Anything works really.

Even if you tell me having a cute little garden shovel may be helpful.

Remember -101?

Yeah, that's not a lie.

So disappointed in myself.

Here are the facts.

Fact: I'm the biggest fan flip flops. In the world.
Fact: I have more flip flops than anyone I know.
Fact: My camera is dead right now :( but if I could take a picture, I would show you some flip flop shaped post it notes from Hawaii and a paperclip holder that is a flip flop and a keychain from sea world, that is in the shape of a flip flop. These things came from people who know about my love for flip flops. (Oh, and I'd show you pictures of our new house!!!)
Sad Fact: Flip flops are not allowed at work.
Fact: Except for 1 or 2 days a year where they are allowed only as a part of a competition.
Fact: Today is one of those days.
Sad Fact: I. forgot. to. wear. my. freekin. flip. flops.
Fact: I even painted my toes all cute and glittery and summery last night.
Fact: I'm going home to change my outfit at lunch.

Jack Johnson style...

I've been

*sitting* here
*waiting* for my delicious home made Iced Tea to be ready to drink
*wishing* I would have made sure there was enough ice made before I had the brilliant idea to make some delicious Iced Tea.
