What a Week!!

I wanted to make a special post about the past week in my life -- which would be titled something like that, "life". To celebrate new life, our good friends Kam and Rosie had their baby (although 7 weeks early) and Alondra is doing well! She is so tiny (just over 4 pounds) but oh so beautiful! I am absolutely in love with her.

And to cherish the life of one who has left us -- Josh's uncle Cory's wife, Aunt Layna, passed away last Friday, at the young age of 37.
She will be missed and we are keeping her two boys, Dylan and Jordan, in our prayers.
Our Valentines Day was pretty mellow (and I probably could dedicate an entire post on my feelings towards the dreaded commercial holiday) but Josh, even though I begged with him to not do anything, as usual, spoiled me and it was good to spend quality time with him. He also surprised me with calla lillies, which were absolutely beautiful. (I could also dedicate an entire post on my loathe for roses and my happiness that he remembers things like that!)
Besides these events, our lives (Josh and I) remain pretty usual and boring. I've been busy training two new paralegals at my office who I totally adore and am excited to work with people I can share common beliefs and values with for once! Josh is still on the hunt for a job (slowly but surely?) and SURPRISE, he actually cut all of his curly hair off, hoping it will help him in the search... I have never seen Josh with a short haircut since I've known him, so it is going to take some getting used to. Josh hates it though, so I doubt it will stay short for long. I'll try to get pictures while it lasts for those who want to see how handsome my hubby is! (Josh tends to shy away from the camera so it might be while he's sleeping or something...)
Also, we miss our friends! Please come play with us! Our wii is getting limited use right now and we still haven't had anyone besides our friend Jake enjoy a home cooked family meal on our nice new table! So come on by!

Thanks to Ev, I am now cooler than ever for actually being tagged. And thanks to being so busy at work that i have actually given up and am now officially slacking on everything, I have time to do this!

A- Attached or single: Attached. Even though Josh wishes I wasn't so much.
B- Best Friend: A nice nap. And tomorrow, maybe Josh.
C-Cake or Pie: Both, but not mixed together.
D-Day of Choice: Nap Day. When Josh is president he'll make it official, after he makes my birthday a federal holiday.
E- Essential Item: My wedding ring. It also is my backup weapon if I don't have a can of mace around. I'll poke your eye out.
F- Favorite Color: Green (Ev you are such a copier!)
G- Gummi Bears or Worms: Worms!
H- Hometown: Elwood, Utah.
I- Indulgence(s): Dark chocolate truffles with raspberry filling. I know, it sounds so romantic and it is.
J- January or July: July! January will be taken off the calendar when Josh is president, too.
K-Kids: Josh is allergic, sadly.
L-Life is incomplete without: Naps. I'm kind of stuck on that today, since that's all I want to do.
M- Marriage Date: May 18, 1900. At least that's how long it feels like I've been married, but it only was in 2006.
N- Number of Siblings: 6 sisters and one Ev. Which is better than a sister. And 5 in-laws.
O- Oranges or Apples: I have to cut up my apples into little pieces, but then I love them.
P- Phobias or Fears: I am extremely afraid of falling to my death.
Q- Quote(s): I can't quote it, but it would involve Jennica being absolutely sure that there are 25 hours in a day.
T- Tag Three: I'll just tag myself three times.
U- Unknown Fact About Me: I have an obsession with checklists. I LOVE making them just to check stuff off. It makes me feel like I actually accomplish things every once in a while. So far on my checklist for today: Waste time at work: check.
V- Vegetarian or Oppressor of Animal: Mmmm meat.
W- Worst Habit: I am a whiner. It is awful. As Josh would say: "waah".
X- X-Rays or Ultrasounds: Cat scan. My tumors probably wouldn't show up on an x-ray.
Y- Your Favorite Food: chicken and pasta with a lemon butter herb sauce.
Z- Since I haven't had my nap and there is no Z, I have no creative juices to make one up. But whatever it was, I choose zebra.
