I am not sure if the new blog format stumped anyone else, but it sure did me! I remember telling myself that I needed to ask my wise older sisters to help me in navigating through the new format, but it must have slipped my mind. Months later, I undertook the daunting task to learn it. I vow to get better at posting. I however, cannot promise that the post material will improve from dog talk and animal banter.

My Birthday came and went, and just like that
I'm 27! It's very exciting to be apart of the late
twenties club, and everyone has been so welcoming.
The birthday overall was a dreadful d+....thanks to the
wind and snow that stuck around the whole weekend and
throughout my birthday. I was also accompanied by a case
of bad allergies that left me scratching, sneezing
and with no voice. The bad weather was positively
awful, so the weekend left me craving sun and 50's.
On the up side, having a spring birthday guarantees
me a wide variety of spring fashion, and I did
score some new clothes that helped to brighten
things up a bit. I also got some birthday
wishes from a a soon to be two-year old, and others.
Here is to another year, and hoping that next year
my special day will fall in between the wind and
snow storms of March.

R & R Time!

It is official.....freedom is here at last!
I feel as though I have been doing homework
my entire adult life, and it is about time
I put the books down. Now where to begin?
First, I will try to rest then relax.
I have some playing scheduled pretty much
through the month of March, and then again
in April. I will be doing some belated tv
watching- and who knows, I may even make
time to watch the Harry Potter collection (true story
I have never watched any of the Harry Potter movies.)
I also have a birthday in a few weeks, and
some nieces and nephews that need roughing up.
It is safe to say, you won't be able to reach me this
month, I'll be R&Ring.

I hope all my new year resolutions don't turn
out to be res-o-lies! I vow to drink more water,
improve my yoga skills, eat less junk, bike more,
oh and pass the bar. I wish everyone else lots of
luck with theirs as well. I am enjoying being back
in Cedar. I spend my days studying, and tending to
my three dogs. I also started teaching at the gym
again and have a blast with my spin class. Here's
to a great year being home, healthy, and need I

Quick update..

It is already time to celebrate my favorite
time of year! It is Craig's birthday, the beginning
of the fall season, and HALLOWEEN! At first I thought
it was never going to come, but it quickly got outrageously
busy and now I am staring at the backside of Oct!
I am busy burning my fall candle and working on my last paper.
I have made some trips home to Utah to visit my family, and
packed and moved home lots of boxes. Currently I am busy
doing some work as a Mediator, and tying up ends in order
to graduate and move home!
