Have you heard the song "Lucky" by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat? Don't you LOVE it? I sure do! I hear it and I can't help but smile and think how lucky I am that I'm in love with my best friend.

Do you hear me?
Talking to you
Across the water
Across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky
Oh my, baby I'm trying

Boy I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

Lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again

They don't know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I'll wait for you, I promise you I will

Lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we're in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I'm sailing through the sea
To an island where we'll meet
You'll hear the music fill the air
I'll put a flower in your hair

Though the breezes through the trees
Move so pretty, you're all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

Lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we're in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Cool Cats

Last night, Adam and I went shopping. We got a couple shirts, new shoes and a bag for me. Then we came across these gems. they were only $.47! we could NOT pass them up. Don't our cats look cool :)

Yes, we know these are 1. for dogs 2. completely ridiculous and 3. slight torture for the animals. but, for $.47 how could we pass them up!?

Camper wasn't a huge fan, not at first at least. she kept trying to back out of it, but it never worked.

It was easier to get on minnie. She got a little crazy, running around. then she'd just plop down and strike a pose. it was funny.

The other day at work, I got a phone call. To give you the visual I had of this person, I will show pictures.

He sounded just like Neil on Family guy

And when I heard him talk, I imagined Doug, the brother on 50 first dates

And here is how the conversation went

Hi! I have some questions about your printing
Ok, like what?
What do you do?
What do you need? I bet we have what you need
Pictures. I want pictures.
ok, What size do you need?
BIG! HUGE! MASSIVE! I want a huge picture! How much would that cost?
we can do that, what size are you thinking?
Huge! Poster size! Portrait size! I want a big picture of me on my wall! Do you take the pictures yourself?

**at this point, i have a big smile on my face, he is SO enthusiastic**

nope, I don't. You find a photographer, get the file, and I can print it as big as you want
as big as I want?!
as big as you want :)
Do you have problems with erotic pictures? would you be able to print that kind of stuff?
Depends on how erotic we're talking, but I'll let you know if it's more than we can handle.
I'm huge! you would love it. are you sure you could print it?
well with out knowing exactly what you need, it's hard to say, but, we can work with you
oh, well i'm not talking about naked stuff or anything, just, you know, me with my shirt off. wearing a pair of jeans. my pecs are huge! I want a big picture of me with my shirt off, hanging on my wall
We can definitely make that happen
wow. this is a dream come true. really, you don't know how much this means to me. it's a real dream come true! Have you ever had a dream?
yes, yes I have
well you are making my dream come true! Thank you! thank you! How long will it take
depending on how big you need it, it can be about a week, but first you need to get me the file to print it
really?! wow. that is awesome! thank you so much! you are wonderful! I will be in touch! you take care now!

I got off the phone and couldn't help but laugh. I kept my cool though, made sure he didn't know i thought he was completely hilarious, but i was stone cold either. I had fun with him. Then the phone rings again. I answer. It's a familiar voice, not the guy from the previous phone call, a customer/friend i had been helping

you are so professional.
uh, thank you
no, really, you are a very professional person
uh, ok.... thanks
you handled that so well. i don't know how you kept from laughing right out loud. i had to hold the phone away from my face so you wouldn't hear me laugh. really, you are amazing. I can't believe you held it together so well.

oh man. it was so funny.

Real Live People

Yesterday, Adam and I sat in the front-ish part of the chapel at church. For the first time on our own. We usually sit in the over flow part so we won't be noticed. But not yesterday. Yesterday was different. We felt as if we were real people. Real members of the ward. All because, I got a calling. They called my name in Sacrament. I stood up. People raised their hands for me. It was kinda cool. Believe it or not, it's my first married calling. Because I can kinda, mostly play the piano, I think it will be a kind of forever calling through out wards. That is, unless they have someone like my dad, then he can do it. But for now, all of my wards have been filled with kinda mostly piano players like myself. But still, I'm excited for this one. I've been called to play piano in sacrament, relief society, sunday school, Seminary and Young Womens. Now, I play in Primary. Cute little kids. Go me. I'm a realy live person in the ward now. :)

Remember how a couple weeks ago I did bootcamp work out with Kim? Well, we did it again today. Once again, I am dead. Maybe more dead than last time. We did lunges for a half a mile! Before I was even half way done, probably even before I was a quarter of the way done, I was wobbly. My legs were tired and wanted to stop, but I made them keep going. By the time we were done, my legs didn't know how to work any more. I tried to walk and my legs literally felt like noodles. my knees wobbled, my legs wiggled, and it was hard to keep myself upright. Then we went in the rec center and worked (hard) on our abs and arms. I still can't walk well. I could barley push the breaks when I drove home. I had a hard time going up the stairs and even harder time coming down. It takes so much effort to get up, and even sitting down takes concentration so I make it on the couch and not on the coffee table and then the floor. Thanks Kim, for killing me once again! really! i do appreciate you helping me get in shape :)

This is similar to how I was walking. It's pretty much exactly how I felt like I was walking.

I did it... mostly. I (mostly) spring cleaned my house. Ok, so I just regular cleaned my house, but it sure feels good! My bathrooms are clean, the dishes are done, the floor is vacuumed, the kitchen is swept, my room is clean and ALL of the laundry is done. Every single piece of clothing, with the exception of what we wore yesterday, is clean and put away.
So I think we should just be naked for a week. I don't really want to do the whole thing again in a week.

Spring Cleaning
No, I haven't done my deep spring cleaning yet, though I hope to get it started this week. I just "spring cleaned" my couches. I saw a commercial for this new pledge product on Sunday and bought it Monday. It is magic. It is wonderful. It works. It will last for a while, I can tell. It was CHEAP too!! I am so excited to have found this. I would recommend this to anyone with cats. It is so much easier than vacuuming it. I love it.

Grass clippings
This morning on my way to work, I smelled my first fresh grass clippings of the year. How exciting is that? I LOVE that smell. It smells like spring is coming which means summer is coming.

Flip Flops
I wore flip flops to work today, and I don't regret it. My toes aren't freezing off. My feet can breathe!

Coming Soon {Summer}

Random Pictures

I still can't find my battery charger for my camera, but, I was able to pull up the pictures on my card. Here is what has happened that I haven't blogged about

Adam bought a gun (he actually bought it his last "bachelor weekend" while i was in Vegas with my mom and sister). When the weather is (was) nice, we would go out in the middle of no where and shoot it.

This was right around Thanksgiving time. My sister and I watched Adam, Sam and the boys from Telos play football
(I have blurred out and left out names of Telos boys, so no worries, no one knows anything about anyone)

Halloween/October. Yup, these are the only pics I got of halloween and my birthday. But Adam looks pretty good huh :)

Adam made a potato gun, so we took it out and shot it too. Adam's brother Lane and our friend Aaron helped us shoot stuff.

Boise!! Adam, Jaren and I drove up to Boise so we could go to a football game, then came back the next morning. We had a lot of fun and got to see some good friends, like Jordan :)

The only picture I got of Adams work christmas party. For the white elephant, we got a wedding dress. Adam tried it on. Isn't he pretty :)

I know, I'm pathetic, but these are the only pics (good, clear pics) I got of our first Christmas, but at least I got something right :)

And of course, our kitties. We love them. They love us. They are full of personality and are so much fun. We love them
