I'm Lovin' It

{Out on the ranch- Oakley, Idaho}
I'm lovin'...... a fully stocked fridge and pantry full of healthy food. I have slowly been making the switch the past few months to all whole/multi-grain crackers, breads, pastas, and cereals. Also, we did away with white rice, potatoes, and corn in general.

I'm lovin'...... having my mornings back! For the next few weeks, I will only be working in the afternoons and evenings- which can be both good and bad. Good that I can accomplish all I need to in the early morning hours of the day- bad that I am stuck at work until 8:00.

I'm lovin'..... that my parents are off on a two week adventure through Thailand. They leave on Saturday and I couldn't be more excited for them. Ride an elephant for me guys!

I'm lovin'..... that it is August! I can't even believe it. Where did the past year go? Seems like only yesterday I was balling my eyes out in the waiting room of the temple because they were only running an hour and a half late and there were 30 weddings that day. Ahh, the memories! :)

I'm lovin'..... that I bought a new pair of jeans yesterday in a smaller size than my others! Yay! I accredit it all to Beto and my trusty Zumba DVD's.

I'm lovin'..... that Derek has his LAST FINALS WEEK EVER in two weeks. Ahh! Yes, I am actually excited for him to take finals! After this he will start clinical rotations and wear scrubs everyday, which makes me slightly jealous. PJ's to work? I chose the wrong profession.

I'm lovin'..... my Beehives at church. They are so sweet, cute, and hilarious! Wednesday nights are always such a treat. I am also lovin' the sweet women I get to work with in YW's. They are all so super talented and amazing mothers and wives. I look up to all of them so much.

I'm lovin'..... the moans and groans from kiddos at work starting school in two weeks. Hilarious. I totally remember that feeling as a kid.

I'm lovin'..... {actually hatin'} that ALL stores have out clothes for Fall. Really?! It's still over 100 degrees here everyday, and will be until October. Keep out the shorts please!

I'm lovin'.... that in 2 1/2 weeks we are heading up to Idaho for a visit. Beautiful weather, scenery, friends and family. Sounds amazing! And, remember our first summer together. Priceless.


  1. Wow, Thailand? I am so jealous of your parents, and your husband for that matter-- PJS to work sound good to me too! Yay for being his Final FINALS!

    hahah bawling your eyes out in the temple waiting room because there were 30 weddings? On our wedding day there were nearly 70 weddings, but mine was later in the day so the ceremony was only half an hour behind schedule, but I wanted to cry when I saw the line for the stairs to take pictures. ugh. I feel your pain.

    & you are so lucky to have beehives in your ward, well youth I mean. Our ward is full of newly weds and nearly deads. NO kidding. such a boring group of people :)
