hole in the ceiling

I just have to talk about something that has really creeped me out lately. At work we have a single women's bathroom and in that bathroom their is a hole. A hole in the ceiling, and I have paranoia about that hole. I may sort of kind of worry that someone may have made their way into the rafters and that they are going to spy on me through the hole.

But don't worry I am getting over it. [I stare at that hole until I am good and ready to leave the bathroom]

So I am sure that hole won't bother me for much longer. [It is going to bother me till the day I quit using that bathroom or someone covers up that hole]

Just wanted to share how I am overcoming my little paranoia's : )

Mission Reunion

Husband and I went to his mission reunion last night. It was so nice. I had a lot of fun meeting Husbands old companions and also meeting one of his two mission presidents. There was a lot I didn't understand (lot's of portuguese speaking going on) but I recieved a lot of translation as well.

Here are two pics from the evening.

L to R Husband, President Quatel and Spencer Frye

Past missionaries from 2002-2005 that served with President Quatel

Warsaw, Poland

My baby brother is all grown up and just received his mission call to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in WARSAW, POLAND!

So crazy. None of us were even close with our guesses. I am SO excited for my little bro. He is going to be an amazing missionary.

Love ya Cars!


I have been a negative Nelly today. Subsequently I have felt a little blue. Don't worry though I have determined to get out of my hole and be positive. There is so much power in the mind and I know that if I simply focus on the positive it will have a huge impact on my mood. So I am going to write 5 things that were good about my day.
  1. I got an ice cream sandwich at work
  2. I had a nap at lunch
  3. I have a cute mouse pad
  4. I had all the ingredients for soup (I successfully put off going to the grocery store yet another day)
  5. I received a love text from both Husband AND a bestest

From here on out instead of negative Nelly I am going to be positive Polly! : )

First Day

I made it through my first day of work. Whew! I forgot how completely overwhelmed you feel the first day, the frustrations of not totally understanding everything and wanting so badly to just be able to sit down and do your work and not have to rely on someone to tell you what to do.
I am optimistic though that this will be a good learning opportunity for me. I will get the hang of things eventually. It is just going to take some time and patience.

Mostly I just want to blog about the wonderfully sweet husband that I have who had this sweet love letter and some flowers (picked from our very own flower box) laid out for me when I got home. He is such a sweetheart and has been such a great support to me. I love him so!
P.S. He also got tickets to a concert put on through BYU for us to attend later this month! I am super excited! : )

Productive Day

I had a very productive day. I love productive days. I am a list/task kind of person and so when I accomplish all my tasks/list items I feel very good about myself. I get somewhat of a high out of crossing things off a list. Weird I know. I am probably borderline OCD. Anywho...can I just tell you what I got done!?

- Cleaned our apt. (dusting, vacuuming & disinfecting)
- Washed all our laundry including sheets (I am really looking forward to going to bed tonight!)
- Went to my appointment to get my wedding album started (4-5 months until we have a proof!)
- Did a return at Target & got an amazing deal on my all time favorite hairspray
- Picked up a pair of shoes for Husband at Ross (I LOVE Ross)
- Dropped some DI items off
- Cleaned out our trunk
- Changed our vacuum bag (I say this only because it needed it badly!)
- Organized under our bed

And last but not least I organized our cupboards that were jam packed with what looked like a bunch of junk. It was driving me crazy and I finally got around to organizing it. I wish I had a before picture so that you could really appreciate the after picture. But here are a couple photos of my newly organized cupboards.

Now I have the rest of the evening to do whatsoever I please knowing that everything is clean and orderly. Ummm it feels good!
