To the birthday boy.......

Tomorrow is my hubbys 26th birthday (although he thought he was turning 25). Only 26 and he is losing his mind, o boy. Now i can't tell you all the special things I have in store but after it has all transpired I will share. I love birthdays and I think everyone should feel special on their birthday! My husband is absolutely AMAZING! Last year I made him a book for his 25th birthday on 25 reasons why i love him. So instead of thinking up basically the same reasons I am just going to add one on to make is easier on all of us: #26. I love how you put your whole heart into everything that you do. Your job, your calling, and your family and friends. I admire you so much and I hope you have the best 26th birthday a boy could have :)! I love you. And I love all the rest of you too.

Sad to lose puppy fur

It's puppy has basically lost all of her soft,fluffy,precious little puppy fur :( I can't even remember how small she was when we got her cause she is growing so fast. I go to sleep, and in the morning, POOF! She grew another 4 inches. She is almost to big to sit in the front seat with me anymore. She has become quite the scavenger for food. Today I had to pry a piece of animal poop from her mouth, and the other day I discovered she was chewing gum. She is not completely a re re though. We have taught her to sit, stay, lay down, and shake! Of course she will only do this if you have a treat in your hand but still, its a start! She is also a great escape artist. She somehow managed to unzip her kennel and get out while we at work...twice! I think I am going to set up a camera to see just how she does it...that little sneak. Anyways she is great fun and if anyone is feeling puppy hungry they can just borrow oakley :) feel free to call!

she was so tried she fell asleep in her water bowl

Weekends of fun

A couple weeks ago our friends Jocey and David invited us to go 4-wheeling up near heber and it was so much fun! We road around and then went to this lodge in the middle of no where for dinner. On the way back we found a fun rope swing and decided to stay awhile because jocey and david had disappeared on their 4-wheeler into the woods....who knows what they were doing!? :) jk jocey. But they eventually showed up! It was so nice to enjoy the beautiful scenery that is so close to us. I def want to invest in some 4-wheelers cause they are so fun!

Then last weekend I went to addie's and had a craft night. I have come to learn NOT to wear nice clothes when painting because I somehow managed to get paint on my pants 4 different times throughout the night....don't ask me how I do it. I made some cute halloween blocks and a clock! The blocks are not finished yet but here is a picture of the clock. I think it turned out pretty good! Thanks ads for planning it! I can't wait til the next one!

The next day we took our pups on a hiking trail up to dog lake in slc. It is the coolest place cause there are just dogs everywhere and they dont have to be on leases and they can just roam around. It's 4 miles round trip. We went with our friends Lizzie and Rob and their dog misty. I didn't really even think that "hey this might be kind of a long hike for a 2 month old pup" so off we went. About half way there our dog began to whine and whine and whine, but she kept walking. On the way back the same story. So finally we decide to pick her up and she basically just collapsed in matts arms she was so tired :(. I felt bad for making her walk all that way. She was a trooper and slept all the way home.

The catch up

Ok so I am not being very diligent in my new blog but I still do not know how to really work this thing so that's my excuse! A lot has got our puppy and she is now 2 months old and so freakin big! It makes me sad how fast they grow but I am looking forward to getting out of the poop/pee on my carpet stage. She has been so fun and been good company while matts at work since I work a whooping 2 days a week! I am a stay at home mom to the max. But next week I finally start full time until the girl gets back from maternity leave. Is it bad to hope she does not come back? :) Here are some pics of our growing puppy!

I took some funny videos of her so I will figure out how to put them up later! Some have told me that a puppy is harder than a baby...if that is so then I might have kids...if it reversed....well I don't know what I will do. I have been comparing and contrasting the difference. Here is what I have concluded and learned in my 2 weeks of having Oakley.

-Babies poop/pee can be found in a diaper (maybe sometimes on their clothes). I get to go on a treasure hunt around my house and yard to discover these little surprises.
-Babies wake up during the night...I bet you my puppy wakes up just as much. And she wakes up at 5 am without fail every day.
-Babies can't bite you while giving them a bath
-Babies are usually not forbidden in stores like I feel bad leaving pups at home all the time so I dont even go out!
-Babies can't run away from you and if they can they are not that fast.
-Babies won't usually chew on the floor,rug,couch,shoes,cupboards,clothes,door,drapes,and chair in the span of 10 minutes.
Ok so I may be complaining a little but this puppy thing is harder than I thought, but very worth it in the end. I love her.

Other news....Matt got a promotion at work so now he finally has a normal 9-5 job so I get to see him every night! It is so nice to have him home every night. Now I just need to get some new recipes and start cooking more! We have had lots of fun exploring our new home of Spanish Fork, walking Oakley, and getting our place together. We live in what some might call "the ghetto". We have recently learned that we live next door to a man that has been in prison 3 times! yah....needless to say I always lock my door now.
Matt finally got his applications turned in for PA so now we are just crossing our fingers! Well I will not bore anymore! I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!
