A lil update.

So....I'm listening to "Imma Be" by Black Eyed Peas. For those of you who don't know who black eyed peas are- they are a friggin SAWEET hip hop group. LOVE EM! I can't listen to any of their songs without dancing. And THAT is the truth. I loooooooooove them. So I asked Clay for their edited cd from walmart for my b-day. But the trouble is...I also love Weezer...and somehow in my life, I managed to NOT get their last 2 albums...which both have songs that are really great and make me smile lots. So I asked for those for my birthday too. But THEn the other trouble is I really really dig Taylor Swift. When I hear her songs on the radio- I sing my HEART out. So I asked for her albums for my b-day too. And...of course, I asked for anthropologie bowls, a poster, New Moon, and a gift card to Home Fabrics. I'm thinking there's no way I'll get ALL of that. But you know- I guess that'll keep the anticipation and the surprise in it.

So I have this great story. I am addicted to reupholstering right? Well...our friends that we had in Rexburg when we lived in that craphole of an apartment on main street? They moved to Utah a while back, but came to visit. So we went to Rexburg to have a lil rendezvous with the ol gang and I was like- "hey, why don't we hit up the Rexburg DI while we're there? They might just have something I'd love". So my hubby patiently agreed to go. We went. And there, in the yard area....was a wingback chair with wood legs in pristine structural condition for ONLY $8.00! So I bought it. I was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited. And sooooooooooooo happy. So we put it in the back of the truck, and take it home after the festivities. Clay takes it out of the truck...and when we go to bed he says in a VERY VERY serious tone, "Hun...I have some bad news." I ask him what...and he hesitates...and reluctantly says, "The seat cushion for the chair? It's gone. It flew out or something..." I was DEVASTATED! I honestly felt like crying. But I didn't. So completely depressed...I figured I'd just make another cushion. Spend more money. But then I had a brilliant idea. We called and told our friends who were coming to Idaho Falls the next DAY, about the situation...and guess what? THEY FOUND MY CUSHION! I was soooooooo happy. I thanked Heavenly Father...cause lets face it- you know I prayed that they'd find it. Whoever thinks Heavenly Father doesn't care about the small stuff, is kidding themselves.

I've gotten sick again. I was sick like 3-4 weeks ago...was just getting over it, and BAM! Cough, cough, sniff sniff, death death. Ughhhhhhhhhhh. It stinks.

Is anyone loving LOST? I cried during the last episode. I can't believe how much symbolism there is this season. The part where Ben was about to go with Satan-Locke and said, "He's the only one that will take me" and then the girl said, "I'll take you". Oh my. I'm not even joking- I felt the spirit. I am sooooooooo loving it.

So we don't get fox, and the only way to watch American Idol is on youtube the next we haven't been watching it. But everyone has been talking about how bad everyone sucks this year, so I had to check it out- and you are RIGHT! Holy smokes...I didn't even finish watching most of the songs because it was painful. But...there were a FEW that were good.

Well...I think I'm gonna go sleep...if I can. Have you done your taxes yet? If you are a poor college student in your first 4 years of college, and better yet- with kids? You'll probably make more in your tax return then you did in a year. Just sayin. Tax breaks are pretty good this year. But I still can't help but wonder where all the money is coming from?

Oh that's so great about the cushion. I can't wait to see what you do! I am LOVING LOST. I was SO disappointed in the first 2 episodes that I actually stopped watching, so I'm actually a few behind. But I LOOOOOOOOVE it. I'm so glad it got better. I'm sorry you're sick. That stinks. I've somehow avoided it since I've been back from Europe.


I felt the same way about the last episode!!!!!!! And I welled up with tears in that episode so many times- and I felt so bad for him when everyone returned- and you could see it on his face that he wanted to go up to them, but he wasn't sure if they would want to see him, and you could just see the emotional struggle- it was sooooooo touching and sad and hard and good. You just wanted to hold him and tell him everything's going to be ok, and I love that when given the choice he made the right choice. Uhhhhhh so good. Danielle- I laughed so much when you told that cushion story- I could totally imagine the whole thing, clay being nervous to tell you- and then you're friends actually finding it on the road! hahaha- so hilarious and wonderful! You are so lucky you got that chair- I love that style and I wish you lived here so you cuold help me- I don't know where to begin, it is so intimidating to me! I'm so sorry you are sick, have you been washing your hands alot? I'm so sorry. I know, can you believe american ido? they are so awful! taxes... I don't know anything about them- and I wonder the same thing- where is all this money coming from? love you!

I had to totally laugh about that seat cushion thing. A few years ago, we were donating this super ugly, not my style chest type thing to a thrift store. When we got to the place, the lid had completely blown up and off the hinges somewhere along the way. Totally useless at that point we dumped it in the dumpster. We did find the shards of wood on the way home and hoped that no one was behind us when that happened or else we would be in a bad spot. It was pretty funny after the fact. Can't wait what you do with it. Taxes...hopefully they will be done this coming week. I want my money! :)

Can't wait to see what you do with the chair! That's great that you found the cushion...I totally would have prayed for it too! Taxes...ugghhh, I applaud you for willingly making taxes a part of your everyday life :) I'm just crossing my fingers that we will actually get something back this year.

The money is coming from China! The largest communist country and our enemy, great huh?

Anyway, loved the chair story and agree a 100%!!!

I am loving lost and I felt the same way, I was so sad when Ben said that, I felt sorry for him for almost the first time, I felt sorry for him when he lost his daughter and when he was a little boy. I loved how in the weird non island world where he sacrificed himself for Alex. I am excited to see when they tell us how the two worlds are happening. I had a great discussion with Amy and Mike about it. Then I figured Charles Widmore would show up again. I can't wait to see if he is good or bad! love you!!!!
