I'm such a consumer....

...but this commercial makes me cry. Every single time I see it.

And yes, we went out and bought a huge bottle.

You know you are in poverty when...

Austin reminded me last night of one of our more pathetically poor moments so far in our marriage. Sadly, this occurred in the more recent past than I'd like to admit.

One night we were coming out of Target, where we shop exclusively for our groceries (Wal-Mart can burn) and lo and behold, in the middle of the parking lot lay a gallon of milk. A whole gallon-slightly dented, but perfectly sealed. It was getting dark out, and we barely spotted it. Upon further inspection it was Skim, our favorite, and it was perfectly fine. We couldn't inconvenience the customer service employees with such a burden by turning it in. So yes, we picked it up, took it home, and we drank it.

Does that count as stealing?

My besty best friend Rache came back from New York almost two weeks ago, and we just had our reunion last night! There is nothing better than having a friend that no matter how long you've been apart, it feels like you just saw each other yesterday. I got to see her sweet new ride, and we partied at Starbucks, like usual. Stay tuned for the full on reunion with JESS when she gets back!!

Garden Blog!

Last year I wrote like nine blogs all about our garden and how excited we were, and I realized that I haven't written anything yet about this season's venture. We still have the same little plot outside, and once again we were a little ambitious about what could fit in there. So we have strawberries, pumpkins, green beans, tomatoes, green peppers, basil, thyme, indian corn, and sweet corn. And it all looks like one giant green mass!

PUMPKINS of course!

Austin's beloved and insisted upon Indian corn

Green beans!

Fresh basil may be the best thing ever

Our first harvest of tomatoes

And a delicious spaghetti sauce!

Where did you learn that word?

A little brother and sister were playing in the kid's area of the waiting room at our Lehi office today.

The little girl started yelling at her brother, "I'm the King, I'm the King! And you are BANISHED!"

I wish I could have banished my brothers when I was little, too.

No VIP status required

The private blog idea didn't work out so well. I'm just too lazy and unorganized to invite everyone to it! So for your viewing pleasure and ease, my blog is once again public. We'll decide later if it needs to go off the open web again, but for now, enjoy! Lots of Washington pictures will be coming soon!!
