Good Things Utah

So I was on Good Things Utah today! I looked like a 14 year old girl and said yep a lot, but it was a lot of fun! Thank you to everyone that came to watch me and everyone that supported me!

A Utah Man Am I

The big game is Saturday (Does anyone have some extra Xanex)! I just wanted to wish my Utes good luck! I think they played well this season and I hope that we can play in a BCS Bowl this year! Go Utes!

Hospital Week Contd.

As if we haven't been to the hospital enough in the past week and a half...Saturday morning our dogs were fighting over a toy. Chris got in the middle to try and break them up and Harley bit Chris' thumb. It didn't look deep enough for stitches so we cleaned it up, threw the dogs outside and went on with our day. Chris' thumb never stopped bleeding, so about 2pm we decided to go to Instacare. The doctor said that he could use a couple of stitches, but Chris is leaving for Africa this week and wouldn't have access to get the stitches out. So they glued him back together and splinted him! He has to wear the splint for a week!

Baby Z Is Here!

My new nephew came today! He is unnamed so we are still calling him Baby Z. He is so cute and looks like a little old man. He has lots of dark curly hair and big Petersen cheeks. I love him!

Hospital & Doctor Week

What a crazy week for my family! It started Saturday night when my sister starting having contractions and went into the hospital. I kept her kids that night, but she was sent home. She has not had the baby yet, but will be induced Thursday!
Saturday night we also received a phone call that my great aunt was put into the hospital. The doctors were running tests all night long and finally found out Sunday afternoon that she has pneumonia in both of her lungs. They said that she was improving but as of today she is not doing well.
Yesterday I got a phone call from my sister and she said that Tyleigh had been hurt. My sister went to lift her up and heard something pop in her arm and Tyleigh was just screaming and crying. Luckily I work in a doctors office and our pediatric doctor was in. My sister brought her in and we took an xray. The doctor could not find anything wrong with her! She started moving her arm last night and is doing okay!
Loads of drama with my family this week-the best will come on Thursday when the new baby finally comes! I will keep everyone posted on that and my great aunt!

No Good, Very Bad Day

When I was young I read a book called Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Well today is one of those days.

I have been holding in LOADS of stress lately and it's taken its toll on me. Nothing (except the Good Things Utah thing) is going okay in my life right now. Everything seems like a giant mess and I hate messes! It feels like I am in a big hole, way down at the bottom, screaming for help, no one can hear me and the dirt is starting to come into the hole. I want to go back in time and change some things that have happened in the past couple of years. Yet at the same time I want to jump ahead a year so that everything will be over and done with and life will be happy again!

Does anyone have a time machine? If so...I'm coming over right now!

Boo Day!

I really HATE Halloween but I still dressed up and had fun this year! I had to work during the day but spent the night with my family. We had a great night! Chris has promised me that next year he will dress up, so I'm already thinking about costumes and I'm holding him to it!

These are the ladies that keep me sane and make me laugh 8 hours 5 days a week!

Abby is pregnant so she was a bun in the oven and won the Best Costume Award at work!

We had a potluck at work and I made this Spiderweb Brownie Pull-Apart and
it won the Best Dessert!

Jaedon was a very serious Obi-Won-Kon0be (sorry if it's spelled wrong)
and had the coolest cape ever!

Tyleigh was so happy to be a Bee this year and loved her tights!

I would say that I can't wait until next year, but that would be a lie!
