SO, I'm sitting here...putting off hanging my Mag Riders (I'm extremely aggravated by people's magnesium needs at the I just have to say: I may be annoyed with the thought of having to go hang yet ANOTHER medication on my patients, but I am extremely pleased with myself for FINALLY figuring out how to use 'digital scrapbooking' to jazz up my blog page..WOOHOO!! Now stick THAT in your pipe and smoke it! Oh, and another reason for my 'exhuberance': I am at the end of my shifts for TWO WHOLE WEEKS!! I can not tell you how excited I am to be leaving for San Francisco this Saturday with my hub-a-roo for our anniversary bash! I'll take some great pics and have new blog-fodder when I come y'all have a great day, kids! :)

So, Jeff is the culinary genius in our household (we'll have you all over for dinner sometime and he'll knock your socks off..I'm tellin' ya!)  ANYWHO, I made a little foray into the world of yumminess this morning in the form of PUFF PANCAKES!!  You make them w/ this cool cast-iron pan..pour the batter in and they come out like little pancake eclairs!  (i'd have taken a pic so you could all understand what I'm saying, but they were delicious and we instantly inhaled them!)  I am quite excited, because I have serious issues making even normal pancakes..I can't flip them :)  So I just though I'd take this opportunity to  brag a little..haha!

Just wanted to add some pics from our weekend o' fun in Lake Mead:

I've never been to Hoover was awesome! But also crazy how much the water goes down each year! The Dam pays completely for it's upkeep through the energy it provides..but they're saying that soon it won't be able to provide the mass amounts of power it currently does for Vegas..YIKES!
Jeff, being strong and silent ;)

He looks cold..and yet so hot! haha

Sexy hubby running!

OK, that was


I wanted to include some pics of Jeff from his tri...just to show ya all how dang hot he is!


So, as my hubby and Jen have so kindly pointed out, I haven't written anything new lately..haha:) WELL, we've been busy, geez Jen!

So going back to work this last week really stunk after our wonderful little mini-vacay in Lake Mead..the weather there was perfect (a little windy, but where is there NOT wind these days?) I was so proud of Jeff for his triathalon..he did awesome!! My husband has got the sexiest muscles! ;) AND it was just the attitude adjustment I needed. I was leaning towards being more pissy than usual..haha. Do you ever notice that? You get stuck in the routine of work and errands and housework and after a couple weeks of this you're edgy and snippy. I don't know about anyone else, but I do. I used to be so proud of the fact that I wasn't a 'moody' girl. Well, apparently, I lied, because I can be one of the moodiest people I know these days!

And today we went out to look at our house that's being built in Eagle Mtn/Lehi (it's, like, 3 feet inside the Eagle Mountain city limits...I don't like to tell people we're building in E.M. cause their 1st response is 'Oh, wow, that is SO far away!') ANYWHO, I'm feeling a little torn about the house..I'm SO excited when we go out to look at it: the basement is poured and framed, and now the main level is framed too! But then reality sets in and I remember that we haven't even sold our townhouse yet..and if we don't sell the townhouse, no house in Eagle Mountain for us!! :( So I'm playing this little mind game with myself: If I don't get too excited about the house, I won't be so upset when we can't move there because we don't sell our townhouse! I used to do that when I was a kid..don't get too excited about a good soccer tryout, cause then if I don't make the team I won't cry..does anyone else do this? Yet, at the same time, I'll be sad if we do sell the townhouse too! Because then I'll have a longer commute, we'll have to spend more on gas..the list goes on and on..I think I definitely worry too much..haha:) And when it comes down to it I really will be happy anywhere as long as I have Jeff! Anywho, if anyone knows someone who's looking for a REALLY nice townhouse in the Salt Lake area..send'em our way!!

On a side note: does anyone want to take Yoga classes with me? I've started doing yoga at home on my own but I think it would be fun to try some classes!

It's crazy how music and smells can spark memories so vividly!! I remember a was LipSmackers (weren't those things the greatest?). I had it in junior high, it was my favorite..a caramel/raisiny smell. Anyways, I caught a whiff of something that smelled like it today while I was out walking my dog..I have no idea where it came from, but I was instantly transported back in time to my junior high advanced algebra class..Mr. Nielsen was the teacher, and I cried every day before I had to go to that class!! I was the only 7th grader in a sea of 8th and 9th graders and I hated it! I eventually quit using that chapstick because every time I did it put me into a melancholy mood..and for a while I couldn't figure out why until I realized what it reminded me of!

And speaking of chapstick, for the longest time the smell and taste of the green spearmint chapstick (you know, the kind everyone has) reminded me of cutting class my freshman year of highschool to hang out with this guy I dated for a while...he always wore it, and he was the first really good kisser I ever kissed...! The minty smell particularly reminds me of one spring day that we skipped class and drove out to Copperton Park with some of our friends..he and I just chilled under some trees for a while, but I remember feeling dizzy after he kissed me that time..I can laugh at it now, but at the time is was so romantic! Haha :)

And last but not least: MUSIC!! I know that everyone else out there can totally relate to hearing a song on the radio and being sucked back in time. I was putting together a playlist for this blog and with each song I thought of some trip, guy, summer vacation, emotional moment...I get very nostalgic when I listen to music by ANYWHO, I would love to hear about the stuff that sparks memories for you guys..I know this isn't really a 'tag' thing, but I'm doing it anyways! Cheryl, Jen, Wendy, Rachael...all ya'll!!
