The day after Thanksgiving my family went bowling and to the Mesa Temple lights. It was so fun to all be together, I'm so glad Jason was able to come home from BYU.

... Or October?
Elle made and excellent hot dog!
In my defence I left my memory card in Ohio, and only recently got it back.

1. You have clothes in the dryer that you washed a week ago.
2. You open up your google reader to see that you friend (Kayla) has posted 25 times since you last logged on.
3. Your fridge is completely empty of anything that could be called food.
4. Your toilet bowls have rings inside them.
5. You have an ironing pile as tall as a small child.
6. You have 10 unheard messages on you answering machine
7. There is something that reeks in your pantry but you haven't had a chance to investigate it.
8. You call your husband by your boss' first name.
9. You can't remember the last time you cooked a meal that didn't come out of a box, or cooked anything for that matter.
And the #10 reason to know if you have been absent from regular life
10. Your husband is doing the grocery shopping!
Life has been just a little busy since Labor Day weekend, at which time I began taking an accelerated anatomy class online through Rio Salado. It ended on Halloween weekend with a whopper of a final, but I am proud to announce I pulled off an A!
Since the conclusion of my class I have been out of town every weekend. With a last minute trip to Las Vegas, and a wonderful visit to Ohio. And then just when I thought things were settling back into the old routine, I got sick, and regular life was put on hold again.
This weekend was my first weekend at home, since Labor Day, that I was able to be home and not worry about homework. It was amazing! My home is clean for the first time in 12 weeks, and there is food in our fridge (if only I could muster up the courage to tackle the ironing).
Thank you so much Dave for putting up with my crazy schedule and pitching in on all the house work! You are the best!
Coming soon... posts on Halloween, our trip to Vegas, and my visit to Ohio.

I love making cupcakes! They turned out pretty great if I do say so myself.

It was so easy even I could do it. It was fun too. All you have to do is google "jeans into a jean skirt" and you will find tons of instructions.

Our office specializes in Nero therapy so we see primarily stroke victims and spinal cord injuries (I can tell you some sad stories about them). Strokes most commonly occur in the elderly, which means I get to hang out with a lot of old people/ get hit on by old men all day.
I love to hear their stories about fighting in WWII, or living in Chicago with the Mafia, they say the funniest things! But one old timer in particular keeps me shaking my head. His name is Tom and he thinks that b/c he is old he can get away with saying just about anything. I was warned about him, but didn't find out for myself until after a couple of visits.
Last week he said to me, "You've got nice boobs...their cute. You've got cute boobs."....
I saw him on Monday and then on Tuesday he said to me "Your boobs have gotten bigger."
Seeing that my boobs were becoming a common topic of conversation I choose to wear a must looser shirt today.
And today Tom said, "You know, these exercises are going to be good for my sex life.." he's 82!

Drempt about our cruise and wished I was still there.
Wished my mom a happy Mother's Day, (can't wait to see Wicked with you next month, Mom!)
Counted down the days until MPS released for summer break.
Picked peaches with my best friend and made yummy peach jam.
Obseved Memorial Day with a hike up Camalback (in the rain). Made strawberry jam.
Said goodbye to Kids Corner, and 60 of the greatest friends I've had for the last 3 years.
Thoroughly enjoyed my first week of summer vacation.
Found out my brother is returning from Columbia on June 18th (only 10 more days!)

From there we continued our walk around Key West, this time in search of some key lime pie. A local told us about a lady that worked in a grocery store up the road and said she sold the best key lime pie on the island. So we headed up the road for a slice. We lucked out and got the last one on the shelf. It was the strongest creamiest key lime pie I've ever tasted. It had a great brown sugar crust, and was topped off with banana cream frosting. We met the baker and she was totally flattered to be called the best. She then recommend a great place to go get conch fritters, and after giving Dave an English lesson on how to properly pronounce conch (conk) we were on our way.
The place turned out to be a total shack. It looked like all its walls and roofing were built with depree left over from the last hurricane. It had so much charater, and was a great place to eat.Dave's conch fritters, which are basically hushpuppies.

We found this comfy spot on the beach...With this view and didn't want to move all day, and the best part was we didn't have to.
The water was so crystal blue.
There were huge sand bars you could walk out into the ocean on and find conch shells.
We participated in the boys against girls relay that was a blast, but Dave had the most fun playing volleyball.
And just like every other night, the night was not complete without a stop by pizza the parlor for a late night snack.
