Idaho Bound

That's right!  
In a couple weeks we will be headed HERE:
with smiles on our faces!

Yes, we did just move to Logan last August.  :)  
James has decided to change his major from Forestry and pursue 
the Nursing Program.  In doing some research, we discovered
that we can save a boatload of money by attending in Twin Falls.

Not to mention that it is very close to our families who we miss
when we are away too long.  We have been looking for a reason
to get back to Idaho, it just came sooner than we were expecting!

We have loved living in Logan!  We have made some great friends
and both of us have just learned so much while being here.  We have
both grown so much here by meeting the people we did. I feel
that it was a very much needed stop for us.  An important stop 
that has and will change our lives for the better because of it..   
Our time in Logan has been short, but a very
important stop for us and one we will remember for a lifetime.

It is interesting to be able to look back on our lives and our
journey and be able to see the hand of the Lord in plotting
our life's map.  The road we take and the stops we get off 
on.  We have been very blessed to know the Lord is behind
us and can feel his hand in our lives.   The move to Twin is
scary.  We have to start all over again, in a sense, but we are 
excited as well and are looking forward to leaping with faith.
(Woah, I don't usually go this deep on here...haha)

Anyway, now we are Idaho bound in a couple weeks and I haven't 
done a lick of packing.  Why is it that procrastination seems to makes 
me the most productive in the end??

Egg-cellent Weekend

It was a great weekend of family food and FUN!  
It figures that all of this fun happened in IDAHO!  Woot Woot!

We had a great time with family at my cousin 
Garrett's Farewell.  He is going to be a great 
missionary!  It was fun to hang out with
family and cousins we hadn't seen in a while.  

Oh and every year my mom puts on an Easter Egg hunt 
for all the kiddos.  It was awesome as usual and here 
are some pics.  I may be biased, but I have some dang 
cute nices and nephews...




Fun weekend and cute kids!  
Can't wait until we move...

Wait, What's that?!?!?!  


We are MOVING to Idaho in just a few
short weeks!  It's been a six year run in Utah 
for me. It's been so fun and we have made some 
amazing friends here.
Not to mention, James and I MET in Utah...
 but MAN OH MAN, it is going to be GREAT to be back home!

The Duo who JUST might Save Country Music

If you are not a Country Music Enthusiast don't go any further.

I am a fan of COUNTRY music.  Not country pop.  Sorry Tim McGraw, but 
that's what you are now.  And don't even get me started on Toby Keith. 

These two are who they are wherever they go and whoever they play for (say that 10 times)
and a girl just has to respect that.  They are COUNTRY and proud of it.  
And I just happen to be the same way.  :)  

I just downloaded the second album and I love it as much as the first. 

They are country darlings.  

Okay, I'm done.

Hey There Mr. Tax Man

Tax season 2011:

Is tax season (for all of you who are too cheap to pay for a real accountant) frustrating to you???

Here is a break down of how our process went:

-Turbo Tax
-Trying to find all W-9's this last year.  Including um...FOUR for me. Yes, FOUR.
-Thinking we are doing awesome when we found all of our W-9's, until realizing we still have to find a whole bunch of other crap needed for taxes (stock info, bank account info, 401K info...)
-Having 3 or 4 frustration arguments between my hubby and I (probably less than last year).
-Punching buttons on Turbo Tax we THINK are right, but really we have no idea what they mean.

Really, is it worth all of this stress (on our marriage - haha)???   Next year, I am thinking Mr. Accountant man is sounding nice.
