Texas Visit

So it looks like I am going to post about once a month now lol. I am just a terrible blogger, not that anyone minds, I'm sure.

This past week I got to spend some time in Texas with my sister, her two boys, and her husband. She just had the CUTEST baby, Treagon (Tray-gun). I had the best time! I am not the most energetic or fun person, but I hope it was nice to have me there. We spent our week snuggling the baby, doing glitter toes, bleach shirts (epic fail), going to the pool and just hangin' out.

The Texas heat prepared me for coming home. It is currently 83 degrees on my apartment. I don't know if the swamp cooler is broken or on the wrong setting (the neighbors upstairs have the only control), but it is HOT. First thing Monday we are going to have a talk with the office. I don't remember it being even close to this warm last year. The hottest it would get was 74 AFTER I turned on the oven. If they can't do something about this I see a move in our future and many nights eating out. There is no way I'm cooking in here.

Oh yeah, back to my trip:) I had a really wonderful time, but I get such bad anxiety when I travel. Jordan spoiled me when I got back because he knew it was hard for me. Friday he took work off and we slept in, hit the gym, unpacked, cleaned the house, went out to eat at Nicolitalias (our favorite place) with my parents and then went to the temple.

If you think that day sounds like enough, you are right. We did not stop there, though. Saturday we had another amazing day together. We slept in, hit the gym, went to 7 peaks for a few hours, did laundry, went out to the Texas Road House (YUM), saw Man of Steal, went shopping for clothes and topped it off with shaved ice:) Whew it was two days of fun. I know that may sound like an expensive amount of splurging, which would also cause me anxiety lol, but it wasn't at all. Seven peaks is free with our Pass of all Passes, Jordan's work gave him paid time off, they also gave him the movie tickets, a gift card for the restaurant, and he had won some money in a work contest that we used for shopping and dessert, because we all know an unexpected bonus is free money:)

I am spending today grateful that I have such amazing family and a wonderful husband. We are so fortunate to have such a fun young marriage. I know I will look back at this time as one of the best times of my life. I don't know how I could ever be so deserving of these blessings, but I can do my best to express gratitude. I hope you are all having a summer to remember, because life is to short to stress about dumb things, like being REALLY worried that the ticket you are holding won't ACTUALLY get you on the plane. Not that I have ever worried extensively about something so silly;)


  1. I'm so sad that i díd not run into you at 7 Praks no Sat...Greg said he saw you so for the rest of the day, i was looking out for you everywhere cause i wanted to see you!
