wow. it's been awhile. life has been crazy. first i have to say THANKYOU to everyone that wished me happy birthday! that was so sweet of granty poo. i'd like to say that i had a fabulous birthday but really i spent the evening and night and next day... barfing. and it was the most horrible thing ever. i have not thrown up like that since i was little, i think i had a little 24 hr flu or something. yuck. that following week grant packed up the truck and headed down to albuquerque to begin his first week of selling. i was soo lucky because i got to stay behind and finish all the cleaning. luckily i had so much help from my family and ward and it went pretty quick. i also made flowers every day and finished some styling services. i did happen to get a chemical peel (from jess for my birthday) and the girl that gave it to me was UH-MAZE-ING. she knew so much about skin and told me everything she was putting on my face and why. i have never been so impressed. so in case anyone is wanting her info... email me. then best friend jess got married. and it was the most beautiful thing and deserves a whole other post. this picture below is of the rest of our haiti donations that we were unable to take ourselves. we shipped 25 more boxes or so. ya, amazing. makes my heart smile.
hope to be doing more posts from our trip soon.
after the wedding, we basically packed up the car with the rest of our stuff (leaving lots behind in storage) and got in the car. this drive was much shorter than our others. only about 9 hours, we are used to almost 40, being that both our summers before were on the other side of the country in DC and Florida. this picture was taken on the way down, southern utah is so so pretty.
so here i am after a week in albuquerque, i have unpacked, cleaned and shopped. today we finally got internet and i don't know where to start besides updating. i haven't blogged in almost a month. i am very sad to leave our little home in orem. more than any other summer. i miss all my friends and family so much. :(. other than that i ate a whole bag of hostess donettes in walmart before i even got to the register yesterday. go me!
