"standing for something" is by far one of my favorite books. the 10 neglected virtues. i read it for the first time in 2000 while going through a very difficult time in my life. i have since read it more times then any other book, other then the book of mormon. everytime i read it it is almost like it tells me something more then the last time that i read it. i have about 4 copies of it they are all marked up and have been loved. reading this book along with the book of mormon temple attendance and my parents, helped me strengthen my testimony and get me through some tough times.
“firm as the mountains around us”

i have come to believe that (besides toys R us) the hogle zoo is her little piece of heaven on earth. and with her, it's an all day ordeal. alice the camel, the penguins, raja the tiger, the sneezing elephant and getting itsakadoosie popsicles. our main chunk, though, is spent at the discovery play ground as she tries to make all the friends that she can before its time to go!

posted of the girls in the tub... i don't know what it is about kids and their bubbles, but jord will stay in the tub for almost an hour if we let her! and she loves to eat them...
so this photo is for ashley and her blog, i found the picture the other day and it is just one of my many favorites of jordan.
i need to share with you how much i love the movie transformers. for those of you who have not seen it, you got to! i wish that we saw it in the theater but no, i waited for the walmart special. i have never watched a movie over and over as i have this one since i was about 10. kasey and i usually watch a movie at night when we get in bed to get us tired, and that dvd usually stays in the player for a few days until we move on to the next one... but transformers has been in there for over a week, and we're still not tired of it, i have to stay up and watch the whole thing! time for a new movie? not yet... huh, who would have thought. it was done so well i thought and with just enough humor, it really keeps you entertained. go watch it!

what a shock, not what i was expecting to see or hear about today. he was a very low key actor that lived a fairly normal life. he, since '10 things i hate about you', has been
one of my favorites.
my top movies of his are:
1. 1o things i hate about you (1999)
loved it, rebellious and dreamy
2. the patriot (2000)
great job, very touching
3. brothers grimm (2005)
interesting little fairy tale, but i enjoyed it.
4. knights tale (2001)
i really liked this partial modern movie. it was good...
5.brokeback mountain (2006)
i know i know, but i thought that it was a good story and he did a great job even though this movie got a lot of crap. hey, a aussie cowboy, he looked great.
6. lords of dog town (2005)
this movie first interested me because i met one of the skaters a few years ago, but when i watched the movie i became impressed with his wide range of acting. in this movie he did good. it was almost like a johnny depp performance.
7. dark knight (2008)
even though it is not out yet, it will be interesting watching the late heath ledger in the up coming batman where he plays the joker.

i saw this on a friends blog and thought that it might be fun to do...
~my husbands name: kasey
~how long did we date? 18 months
~how old is he? 34
~who eats more? kasey usually, he's a snacker, but lately me... i think that it is due to the cold weather and trying to gain health baby weight.
~who said i love you first? i did, i was so used to saying it to family at the end of a phone conversation that it just slipped out one day on the phone... i didn't say it again until he did about 2 months after.
~who is taller? kasey for sure 6'3"
~who sings better? well kasey will argue that... i mean i think i sing good, he does country great, but to keep things fair, we both are :)
~whose temper is worse? is that a trick question? we both have our days, doesn't everyone?
~who does the laundry? me, i don't trust anyone else to do it. i like my clothes coming out better looking then when they went in.
~who does the dishes? i do. kasey said the other day that he was going to start helping me, and he has! thank you KB!
~who sleeps on the right side of the bed? me always have since forever ago. i just can't seem to fall asleep on the left side.
~who pays the bills? thats me. i'm on it!
~who mows the lawn? kasey does the front yard, he likes the lines to be perfect. i do the back yard, because of course the big puppy poop. thats the only reason that i can think of why i "get" to do the back.
~who cooks dinner? we both do, either together or who ever gets home first and is hungry.
~who drives when you are together? usually kasey, but then it depends on what kind of day he had at work.
~who is more stubborn? i just asked kasey he said "you". huh...
~who is the first to admit when they are wrong? kasey and i are very competitive with each other kasey doesn't like to back down... and neither do i...
~whose parents do you see the most? kasey's cause they live about 5min away. but i talk to my mom everyday... i don't know if that counts... miss them.
~who has more friends? good question... mine are scattered all over, i don't have many that live in salt lake. kasey thinks that it is funny that almost everywhere we go i run in to someone that i know. but for the most part, we do everything together.
~who has more siblings? i do, by one
~who wears the pants in the family? asked kasey, he said "i think we know who does..." (but i think i know who really does...) okay sorry, tied for first!
simple questions sent on to betsy & ashley

you see besides, the two rooms, and the hall that are getting redone this season, kasey put a real hard wood floor in the kitchen! i love it! and kasey is very protective of it... the dogs didn't come in the house for about 3 days... i told him that it wouldn't be perfect for ever and so he went down to home depot and bought a new rug too!
you see the trick to getting your husband home improvement motivated is HGTV... thank you!
you see where the vent is there in the ground?, those that have been to our house know that the tile was cracked there, the vent stuck up and the floor sort of sunk there from the house settling. kasey and his dad put a new vent in, new supports and now i have a beautiful level hard wood floor! like i said before, you have to set your self up for the surprises old houses throw your way during improvements. can say just how much i love my talented husband!?
just add crown molding and i have a brand new kitchen!
