Memorial weekend

Memorial weekend in Mexico was exactly what the school sanity doctor ordered.

We are ready to retire here already please

McCall, Idaho. The best vacation of the year. You guys, I'm telling you this town has it all. It has the beach, the cute dock, the most quaint downtown, it has the woods, it's beautiful beyond belief, the jalapeƱo burger at the local burger shop, the Saturday morning farmers market, the best huckleberry ice cream, jam, and honey. Like I said, this town had it all. I'm a little obsessed with everything about McCall.

I’m not an emotional person normally. I’ve only cried in two Greys Anatomy episodes. That is what I always compare my sensibility too. So as you can tell by that, I don’t cry much. But for some reason Scott is the person that can make me cry like a baby. Not like be mean to me and make me cry but like “I love you so much, I’m gonna cry”.  I tear up just slightly thinking about him. Happy cry or sad cry, he is the one that can make me cry. If I think I have been grumpy or mean, I just start saying sorry over and over with tears in my eyes. Or if he does something remotely sweet I start crying. Hes just so perfect to me. While he was in Montana, it was the longest we had been apart since we got married. I missed him so much. I was driving home from work one day, listening to really sad “I miss you” songs and thinking about how before he left at 4 am I woke up to him nestled in tight right next to me. And then of course the thoughts kept rolling and I instantly started bawling. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d be with a person like Scott for eternity. He loves me with a love I have never felt before. He has the kindest heart, funniest humor and strongest of integrity. He gives the best nick names, distracts me while I’m cooking with slow dancing, and will always greet me and leave me with a kiss. He is my best friend, confidant, and love of my life. He is the other half of me. The better half that is. I love that his hair is the first thing I smell and his skin is the first thing I touch every morning when I wake up. I look forward to a lifetime of continuing to be smitten by him each day. Even until we are old and gray. Everyone deserves a Scott in their lives.

Q: Where have I been?
A: Sick. Out of town. Sick. Busy. Sick.

I have sorta been on my death bed the past month and a half. First it was the stomach flu. Then came the congestion and sore throat. Then came a lung infection and pleurisy. And a few more vomits here and there. I don't know what is going on with me but my body is accepting all sickness and rejecting all food. On the bright side, I have lost 6 pounds just in time for a bathing suit in McCall, Idaho this weekend!

Other stuff going on...

- I chopped my hair off! 7 inches later, I have a blunt long bob. And I surprisingly love it. Scott loved it too which is always a plus! The downside is I actually have to do my hair which is an adjustment I am getting used to.

- We went to California for the fourth and it was a blast as always. You really can’t beat the weather of Southern California. And a 4 day weekend is always ok with me. Any time away from the heat is time well spent.

- My husband has turned into a mountain chasing fisherman. The past two weekends he has gone to the mountains to go fishing. First weekend he want to Montana for 4 days and this past weekend went to Black River. If you couldn’t tell by looking at him, he has turned into a mountain man.

- I love all babies. Especially really fat ones. Most of all, I am obsessed with my nephews and love to watch them every second I can. It gives me the perfect amount of mom fixin that I need for now. No babies for me yet. But oh how I love babies.

Sister Kimberlee Quent

Last night Kimee got home from Switzerland, showed her family pictures and souvenirs, and then pulled out an unopened mission call and surprised her whole family with the news. I am so beyond proud and excited for this girl. Whenever I think about it all, I just start to cry. This girl is one of the most amazing people I have ever met and I'm so jealous that people in Portland get her for 18 months. Love you more than you know Sister Quent!

Mothers Day

So tremendously grateful for this amazing mother in my life. Anyone who knows her knows how incredible she is. And not to mention beyond beautiful. 

I loved this Mothers Day. I spent the day appreciating and loving on all the amazing women in my life. Scott even spoiled me for being the future mama of our babes. It was cute.

The Great Gatsby

 "Can't repeat the past? Why of course you can."

This weekend my friend/sister Kimee and Angela threw the most magical dinner party. 

Theme: 20's era The Great Gatsby.
Brilliant right? 

It was so fun to play up dress and pretend to be in an era of glam and jazz. We had yummy food and drinks served on pretty glassware with Billie Holiday and Louis Armstrong playing in the background. It was a perfect night. So happy we are past dance parties and moved on to dinner parties. Kimee & Ang, thanks for being amazing hosts, cant wait for another.
