Taking a week off.

Chris just left for work.  It’s Monday again.  Last night, Brandon and Stephanie came over for dinner and I was explaining that I feel like I have deja vu often.  I set my cell phone on the counter to clean the kitchen and Greta starts crying in the background.  I realize I may not be having deja vu as often as I claim.  Often times, my days are very similar and run together. As Chris was leaving he said, “Hey, let’s not schedule any house showings for this week.  I think we need some time off.” We have seen a lot of houses.  We were ready to buy the Mapleton home, and it went under contract.  That was heart-breaking. This past weekend, the search continued.  Our realtor took us to see a home in Provo that was just reduced $30K!  It was in a darling neighborhood with a nice big…

Vote for Us!!

Entry #33 by Julia in Pleasant Grove, UTWe were buying our couch and ottoman, literally checking out–we looked over and saw this dining set. It seats 6, but is also expandable…we were only two at the time, my husband and me. But we both simultaneously said that we wanted to purchase it as well. It has inspired us to branch out and meet new people to have over for dinner. It has inspired us to have family dinners and now that we have a daughter, we look forward to filling all the empty chairs one day.RCWilley is giving away a $1500 gift card to whatever entry gets the most votes.  There are only about 130 entries, so are chances are good–but only if we get votes, right?  We need your help.  Please vote for entry #33 (that’s ours) here.  We hope to get a washer and dryer if we win for…

Tagged…so here it is.

A little about Jules, through the eyes of her husband:1. What is your signature color?Pilot G2.  Preferably very fine point. Black.  2. What is your most embarrassing moment? Does it have to be embarrassing for me?  If not, I would say every time I inadvertently stumble upon the Tyra Banks show.3. Would you ever get anything pierced other than your ears, if so what? Well, I don’t like to do things TOO over the top, so it would probably just be a rod of half-inch rebar through the thick of my calf.  I saw it in Cosmo…so hott.4. Are you a social butterfly or a homebody?I would say that there is really no reason to buy the Otter pops brand of popsicle, Fla-vor-ice popsicles are bigger, cheaper, and just as tasty.  Wait, what was the question?5. Are you done having babies or do you want more? Have you ever seen the movie, Godzilla?…

6 month stats

Greta’s pediatrician loves her.  He is older (I would say late 60s) and I hope he never retires.  He always comes in and talks to her for awhile like she can talk back.  He compliments her name every time and always tells me I am doing a great job, too.  I need to hear that.  Greta is a growing girl.  We just got back from her 6 month check-up.  She loved crinkling and tearing the paper covering the table.  She REALLY wanted to play with all the doctors tools hanging up.  She showed off her sitting up skills, her almost crawling skills and her cute smile.  When she got her shots, she gave the saddest frown–cried for less than 5 seconds–and then started laughing and smiling again.   She’s a sweetie and everyone was amazed that she is “ONLY SIX MONTHS?” Yeah, she’s pretty big: Length: 27 3/4″ Weight: 18…
