Email me

We have decided to make our blog private. Are you annoyed? Either way, leave me your email address and I will make sure to give you an invitation. I know it can sometimes make it harder to check the private blogs but hopefully you will still find your way over to us and see how we are doing.

As you can see in the picture, I don't think we are going to have any adjustment issues when Rocket arrives.

Church Perks

Our ward gives away free bread after church. That's right, the church might just be a little more true here in the pacific northwest. A local bakery gives away what they can't sell at the end of the week. Some goes to homeless shelters (I have been told) and then our ward takes a bunch. Even though it is free and an unexpected treat when we first moved here as time goes by I find myself really annoyed on the Sundays there is not free bread. I rarely buy bread at the store anymore so when Sunday rolls around and there are not stacks of bread, donuts, hoagie rolls, hamburger buns and english muffins to choose from I find myself getting angry. WHERE IS MY FREE BREAD? I try not to let it ruin the spirit of Sunday but sometimes I can't help myself.

We have had a list of things we were going to buy for the house our first year. Since we are both so indecisive we have put off these purchases until recently trying to get everything done before the baby comes. Our latest house purchase was the grill. We love it. First three things we have grilled.

1. burgers
2. chicken
3. burgers

I can't wait to try more. Blake is in love with the idea of cooking on the grill. I am not so in love with the sock choice with sandals but I have to pick my battles.

I am so cool

Three reasons why I am so happy.

1. We got central air.
2. We got central air.
3. We got central air.

People kept telling us that we wouldn't need central air here in the pacific northwest. Those people lied. It is our third summer here and we decided it was something we definitely wanted (though I like to think of it more as need) to do. I was a little sad to get rid of our white trash window unit set up but I got over that after feeling the cool crisp air flowing out of the vents.

We did just celebrate our 7 year anniversary and the traditional gift is copper so the new a/c unit fits perfectly.
