MLK Day Weekend

This weekend has absolutely been a blast-tiring, but SO fun!

Saturday I got to go to my friend Jill's baby shower. I got to see many friends whom I haven't seen in quite some time....and I found out my best friend is expecting baby #4! To top it off I won 2 out of 3 games that we played. One game we had 14 bags filled with white and or cream substances such as sugar, flour, baby powder, garlic salt, and formula. The bags were labeled with numbers and we had to guess (without smelling/tasting) what was in each bag. I ended up getting 7 out of 14 correct. The other game was we had to cut a string to the size we thought Jill's belly was around. Here is a picture of the girls (not sure who the random girl on the top left is or why she wanted to be in our picture).

Saturday night, I had a girls night out with some of my best friends from work (in the schools). These girls are the ones you can share anything with. It's amazing to me how over a two year span, we all bonded so closely-love those girls!
And is MLK day. I decided it would be fun to take my roller blades and go to Skateland roller skating rink with my mom and some siblings. My husband told me that I shouldn't bring my roller blades because you can roll in them....its more like walking with a small glide. I didn't listen and brought them anyways. After two laps around the rink, I decided to take a break and look at my skates (because I wasn't able to roll hardly at all). One of the wheels had a huge crack all the way around it. I thought "oh great" and prayed I'd make it without the wheels shredding and me crashing. Another two laps and my skate stopped rolling. I looked behind me and noticed chunks of my wheels on the rink. I was so embarassed! Luckily my little sister had to go to work and leave the rink early so she gave me her roller skates. Thanks for saving my day Heidi! Here is a picture of my demolished skates---and mind you, not just one wheel had fallen apart, but TWO! Guess I should have listened to David!

Lastly.....My husband has tried the last few years to get me to sit down and write some goals for the year. I never have and groan when he asks. I am not sure why it is so hard to think about what I want to accomplish. And over the last week, I've realized that I have let a lot of precious time slip away because I haven't set goals. I am going to make my best attempt to get some goals written down and hopefully share some of them with you in my next post. Here's to a new year!

Christmas 2010

Christmas this year was slightly different than those in the past-to me, less magical. I am not sure what the difference was-whether its just me growing up or lacky of "Christmasy" service projects. This year we didn't make goodies, leave them on doorsteps and run. And we didn't do any Christmas Angels. Next year I am going to make it a goal to do more service and see if that heightens my Christmas spirit. David and I were spoiled with several wonderful gift. Some included a real bow with arrows, a new headboard/footboard, a lawn mower (thanks mom!), and tickets to Les Miserables (Thanks mom and dad Bunzell!). David and I gave our niece Kiara and nephew Dallin the "pout pout fish" book. A guy in our ward made a song to go with the book and Kiara always asks me to play the song for her-now she has a book to remember it by!

Here are some pictures from the day:

David graduated December 17th with his bachelors degree-great job honey! To celebrate, I got him an ASU shirt (no one can graduate from ASU and not ever have an ASU shirt, right?)

That's right, Stacey has all four Glee CD's!

This weekend we also celebrated my niece Aria's 3rd birthday. Happy Birthday Aria!

(Thanks for the pictures Kristi!) Aria was pretending to blow out her candles. The windy was too strong that no matter how many times her mom attempted to light the candles, they immediately blew out!
