two awesome videos that are very different

such a fun video makes me wish is was friday....oh man i think i might go bonkers these last few weeks.  love summer and also so dang outnumbered and might go hide for some peace and quiet.  but until than, this a some good family dance music for when mama is gonna lose her mind!






sooo my favorite byu student worked on this for her internship!  glad she is there.  so good.  the gospel just makes so much sense!  God still speaks today. 


The best five kids in the worrrrrrrld!

Yesterday started a bit rough. Definitely feels like the end of summer. Had a headache still have insurance woes for me had a tb test and had five kids who have been fighting, whining, crying,and not listening to me. 

So when we got the pool Tuesday I was in a sour mood. But then those little awesome fools started playing together so dang cute that couldn't be mad for long and it made all my mommy dreams come true. Five little pool jumpers. And I ended up joining in :) 

Ended the night picking pears off the Albees tree and getting treats at Rita's!!!

Cow patty eating

So for two weeks I've been on this terrible no sugar no white stuff challenge with points in stuff. I really really didn't want to do it especially in the summer because it's summer and I'm lazy.

But have a personal thing that i try to jump on good things that come by way especially if friends are doing it so much easier than doing it alone.

Anyway I have loved it!!!! So shocked I forgot I like to eat healthy. And has been easier than I thought especially cause their are a few treat days along the way but a few times I almost cried because I didn't eat the brownies or dinner I made. Like really wanted to cry.  

I am all about accepting yourself just as you are and inner ward beauty is most important but it is also good to feel strong. Okay so I don't think I feel strong quite yet mostly sore. Dude!!! Working out everyday is terrible on my body! Can't decide if it's my arthritis or age or shape or what but my elbows and knees are crying too. 

I would love to run or swim those are my favorite but I like to run on flat (cause I'm not a fan of tortue!) and live in the hills and it's been many days since swimming at the YMCA with claire... Sigh ... How many naked old ladies we saw there. 

Anyway have been mostly doing DVDs at home and then free workouts at the park with Jenna when I can. 

Dude workout DVDs can be super annoying. Like is Denise Austin a smoker? And how many times just she say this will make me look sexy? Too much Denise although I did really like your workout.   fasted hour ever …and ended up loving all those positive affirmations that you very much.  

Here is what I tried. 




Always love turbo jam.


The verdict is still out on this one. Tracy bugs me mostly cause she smells of a porn star but I have learned don't judge a workout DVD in the first ten minutes…which is all i got through so far.


This made sore and liked it. Hard on my wrists but first time trying yoga! 



Oh yes and I did Windsor Pilates too which is laughable anyway you are supposed to put your legs over your head and sometimes I just want to feed these girls a burger but hey work in progress. 

I have had no burgers lately.. Sniff sniff but learned I have a fondness for black bean burgers from SAMs club . Paisley thinks it looks like poop. 

Also remembered I love arugula.

Sure looks like a cow patty don't you think?  Thats called dinner.

A dang good day

Today we swam at Laurie's pool and it was heaven. Thank you all my friends who invite us pool-less folk to your pools cause we love them. 

Only minimal sunburns too. 

Then we had fine dining at the costco and I sorta decided I might never go back there cause I so much prefer SAMs with fewer people. Also cause they have coke products and better pizza. 

Then we had family home evening...yes on a Tuesday... And went to baskin and Robbins and then watched a movie about Joseph smiths life and my cute boy was even tearing up... Shhh don't tell him I told you. 

Oh I'm sure gonna miss sure but decided where I'm gonna go on the first day of school... To the mall :) 

Also worked out at the park with awesome teacher Jenna and sure love that when I go... Plus it's free.  

Rusty in Ivys bed laying on my childhood comforter. 

Paisley playing with Jason's childhood favorite toy... 


My favorite quote of the day: boy this made me laugh. 

It's been kinda a I hate everyone and everything week but I never worry too much cause it usually wears off after a few days... Usually ;) 


Read this book was really interesting. Could have done without the chapter called higher education... It was TMI for me. But wow. What a story. 



Painting nails . 


Thankfully this room no longer looks like this and I'm much happier now that it doesn't. 


Saw my awesome pal Renee who lives in heber even though we took no dang pictures. She still looks like Hawaiian/Latin Barbie and I still love her. 

Been thinking about my pioneer heritage so much this week. What an amazing legacy! Family history is cool.
