Good Husband.

I have the best husband.

Adam and I both had to go get some dental work done this morning. As I have said before, I HATE going to the dentist. I had a couple fillings AND got a tooth pulled. I got happy gas for the first time. It made me think I was relaxed, but when I thought about it, I realized my entire body was very tense and had to try and relax again. The work was painless plus I got to watch Kicking and Screaming. However, my ENTIRE face was numb when I left. I felt like the whole lower half of my face looked similar to an elephant... well, that's what i felt like at least.

Now that we are home and it's more than 5 hours later, only half my face is now numb and feeling fat. When we got home Adam went and filled the prescription the dentist wrote for me, then came home and started doing the dishes, cuz he knew it would help me relax, then made me lunch that i couldn't feel or taste. Then he took a nap with me. He was supposed to go in to work for an hour, but he made arrangements so he could stay home and take care of me. He is the best. I love him so much. I have the best husband ever :)

Boise, Idaho

When I married Adam, I instantly became an aunt. I now I have 4 nephews and 2 nieces. LOVE it :D. a few weeks ago, our new niece was going to be blessed, so Adam and I went up to be a part of it. Just as we were going to leave, Adams parents, who were also going up for the blessing, called and said that the roads were awful and that they had to turn around. We had both taken the day off and I knew that if we didn't go somewhere, I would end up cleaning and doing laundry, while Adam watched football. I did NOT want to do that. So we decided to see how far we could make it. If the roads were too bad, we'd pull over and get a hotel, but if we could get through, then awesome. The roads were still bad when we went, but we decided to drive slow. Even though we went slow, we still ended up on the side of the road. Good thing a nice guy pulled over with a truck and tow ropes to get us out.

Once we made it safely through, we got to Brandon and Stacy's house, Adams brother and his wife. We LOVE going there. They have 2 cute kids, Ben and Lilly.

Ben LOVES Lilly. he always wants to touch her and says "hi sis!" "love ya sis!" so cute

When you play with uncle Adam... you get squished...

Lilly is SUCH a sweet baby. i got to hold her for long periods of time. my fav :)

before we left, Adam showed me around his favorite parts of Boise. This is at the BSU stadium. I wanted to go on the blue turf, but the gates were locked. next time :)

Up at Table rock, looking over all of Boise

We decided to take a short cut through a crack in the rocks.

Now that gas is so much less expensive, we plan on going to Idaho more often. They ended up postponing the blessing to 3 weeks later so that Adams parents could come. We were more than ok with that, it meant we got to come up again!! We are hoping to go again in the next few weeks and maybe go to a BSU game. We ♥ Idaho

My Lists

Some days just don't go the way I would like them. We all have those days. I go over in my head all the things that have sucked so far. I email a friend regularly and tell her my list of things that suck. A different friend has made a conscious effort to list the good things in life. The things that make life fun and worth while. So I decided to try it too. I don't get rid of the bad stuff, I still vent it, but I counter the "things that suck" list with a longer list of things that make life great :)

Things that suck

1. When I can't get blogger to do what I want
2. Knowing I'm going to get yelled at
3. Snapping at my husband when all he wanted was a hug and a kiss as I walked by
4. Being so hungry so often
5. A messy house
6. Snow-on the car, on the road, on the ground where I step...
7. Over-due Library books
8. Bills/rent
9. Going to the dentist
10. Getting my teeth cleaned
11. Christmas Songs before Christmas

Things that I love
1. Hitting snooze just one more time to cuddle a little longer
2. I have a good job
3. Husband still loves me even though I'm not much of a morning person
4. Food :)
5. Time spent not cleaning is spent being with the man I love
6. Snow in the mountains
7. Fabulous husband (he counts lots of times :) )
8. Cooking
9. Stocking the cupboards with food
10. Good Family(s)
11. Good friends
12. Good customers
13. Freedom to vote (even if it doesn't matter)
14. Living so close to family
15. It's the beginning of my favorite Holidays
16. Dates with Adam
