New Sofa

My back has been killing me for about 6 months whenever I get off our sofa, not because it's a bad sofa, but it just puts my body at a bad angle and I literally can't walk sometimes when I would get up. So, we decided to sell our brown leather sofa and get a different one. Went looking about a month ago and didn't find anything we really liked, and went back last weekend and found one we liked, and when I asked Bill to look at the price tag, I was PLEASANTLY surprised to hear it was only $399!!! Couldn't believe it, and it was the last one they had, so we got it. It feels so much better, and makes the livingroom look so homey. And the added bonus was since the new sofa doesn't have two recliners like the old one, I get to use my coffee table that's been under Kelsey's bed for 5 years!!! It's a pretty sage green microfiber, and we just love it!!

Jewelry For Sale

Just wanted to post that I'm making and selling watch bands. This has turned into such a fun hobby, and I figured it would be a great way to make some money to help get us to Lindsay's wedding in May. These are pictures of less than half of the inventory I currently have, but they are good examples of what's available. If anyone is interested in purchasing some, let me know. They make great gifts!! The watchbands are $15 each and watch faces are $10 each. I also have punch cards..if you buy 5 watch bands, you get one FREE!!


Our cute little puppies are doing so good. They are growing WAY to fast. They are training really well. They are crate trained to sleep in their crate from 9pm until 5:30 am. They have great little bladders!! They stay in their 6 x 10 foot kennel in the backyard during the day. We still keep them separated from Jake, even though Jake has been great with them. He's just still an 85 pound dog vs 12 pound puppies. Once the puppies get bigger then they can be put together. Last night we started to put them in the house for longer and really watching them so they get house trained. They did great last night. I kept them in for 1/2 hour, then let them out, and Jessie went right over and went potty. I've taught them both to sit and lay down. They are smart puppies.

My New Puppy

I finally got a good picture of Jessie. Isn't she cute?

These two puppies have been a handful, but basically, they are really good. It's just like having small children again!!

The Newest members of the Family!!

We got two of the cutest puppies from Kelsey's Aunt Sue yesterday. Kelsey's is named Bella, and mine is named Jessie. They are a lab/schnauzer/blue heeler mix and are just the cutest things ever. They are only 4 weeks old, so they haven't been introduced to big brother, Jake, yet!

Bill and I had a great time up at Rockport. Bill caught 8 very nice trout, and had several others that "got away". Weather was cool and rainy, but had a great time anyway. I think Rockport is our new favorite place to fish. We like it better than Jordanelle....trees are bigger for more shade and they had great big pavillions over each picnic table. They must be about 15 feet square. Bill did take a bit of a "dip" in the lake when he slipped getting out of his boat. Cold water!!

My folks and my brother are out touring the states and should be coming through Utah around the 16 or 17th for a couple of days. They are making quite the loop. They left Southern Cal and drove up CA through OR and WA. I talked to them last Saturday and they were in Calgary in the snow! They are headed for Wisconsin where the Mississippi River starts. Then heading to SD and Mt. Rushmore area, then down through CO and into UT. They will be gone for 3 weeks total. They're rackin' on the miles and having a great time.

We are looking forward to the Card Reunion in July. We are really looking forward to that!!

Kelsey and I have our own Weight Watchers support group going. We meet every Thursday at our house and we have 11 members. We are having a great time with it, and we are losing weight too!!

Summer is here!

It's been hot exactly one day, and I'm ready for it to be winter again. The heat and I just don't get along. Things have been pretty calm on this end. Bill and I are looking forward to a few days up at Rockport for some fishing and relaxation starting June 4th.

Also, we are selling our brown leather sofa (it has two reclining seats) , so if you, or anyone you know is interested, let us know. It's in great shape and we are selling it for $450.
