Sorry it's been forever! There's a LOT going on in our lives right now, but nothing that seems exciting enough to post about it. Perhaps an overall will seem exciting just in the sheer quantity of goings-on.... A briefish list of what's happened in the past few weeks

*Saw a sign for an apartment in our ward boundries- called that day.
*Went to look at the apartment and met the landlord the next day- decided to take it
*Kimbal and Scott have sanded and puttied their little hearts out and still the only room done is the living room- uh-oh.
*I got on with the OB/GYN I wanted... finally!
*Had a much needed MG night... so fun! Ladies- repeat soon? Ok thanks...
*Several of my MGs I heart have boys coming home SO SOON. Freaking out a little for them... living vicariously and so excited for their weddings.
*Kimbal went "camping" with the scouts and apparently spent most of the time on a water-slide. Jealousy raged.
*I started a blog about all things wedding with a focus on LDS brides who want to do things on a budget. Got followers on day two. Felt Like a rock-star.
*Kimbal had a phone interview with Delta- results pending- Family flies free? Yes please!
*It's rained so much I had to reread Breaking Dawn just to remind myself that NO, I do not live in Forks and NO my husband doesn't sparkle in the sun. Good thing too because human deliveries have nothing on half vampire deliveries- yikes. Scared me silly.
*Fell in love with freecycle. Seriously... cool concept. Check it out.
*Kimbal and I are about half-way through with rereading the last Harry Potter book. Freaking excited about the new movie!
*Got a photographer to agree to be featured on my blog, including allowing me to use her images. Lovely! Too bad I was shooting for a series and asked five photogs (including family) and got only ONE response (not family). Lame, but at least I have one.
*Bought a queen mattress/box spring/down pillow topper/complete sheet set/bed frame for $30- Thank you KSL
*Put a bunch of my stuff on KSL thinking I was a hot-shot and that this would totally save us in the money department.
*Have gotten no replies except one scammer... drat.
*Scheduled my "find-out-if-I'm-incubating-a-girl-baby-or-a-boy-baby" ultrasound. Results on Wednesday. You people will find out once we've called all the fam I promise.
*Got the paint and tile colors approve from Landlord guy- now we just have to get him to approve the prices. Round one was a no-go. Apparently Landlord guy hasn't checked paint prices since about the '80s. He asked us to find non-latex paint and primer for under $10 a gallon- yeah right.
*After much searching we found latex for about $13 a gallon and enough primer for the whole place for about $80. Cross your fingers kids.
*Kimbal found a place that is basically a temp agency for Flaggers. Neat. He'll be kinda like Ryan the temp, except he won't start a fire or bleach his hair or do drugs. Yay for Office references!
*Grandma J broke her hip. It was a scary one and she had to have a pretty intense surgery, but we've been told she's doing well. Mom and Dad are on their way up right now- glad to be seeing the folks even though it's a really crappy reason they have to come.

Ok... I think that's it. I'll try to be better about writing on here, but I make no promises. Love you all! Thanks for bearing with me.
