just kidding... I am back in MISSOURI! Ryan is still doing his preceptor thing in southeast Missouri and I was home alone with no tv or internet! Well whats a girl to do??

I watched every chick flick we have! Ryan makes fun of me for watching movies over and over again and reciting the whole thing as I watch it!

I also made a bow holder for some of the bows I have...

And bought another shelf to organize our food storage. My goal is to start a 3 month supply and work my way to a 12 month supply!

So it has been nice being back in Missouri... I do miss the west very much especially when you walk outside and that humidity hits yeah but Missouri welcomed me back with flashfoods, tornado warnings, and some cool lightning storms :)

I can't believe summer is almost over!!!

We celebrated my brother Mikes birthday, my birthday and my sister's kids Andrew and Hallie. We ate lunch at our families favorite mexican place and went bowling... I DOMINATED! I got over a 100 both games :)

Home Sweet Home

We spent a little over a week at my parents house in Garden Valley. My mom bought a HUGE inflatable water slide, we had smores, and ate lots of food!

This was a pretty cool slide. It shot water out and had a little pool at the bottom. Thanks MOM and DAD for everything! We had so much fun :)

Playing Dress Up

One night I was sitting in my sisters bedroom talking to her when in the corner of my eye I saw a long white dress bag hanging in her closet... MY WEDDING DRESS!! I decided to try it on for fun and to my surprise IT DID'T FIT!!! Almost two years of marriage and my dress doesn't fit anymore. So my sister and I decided to try on every dress from every dance we went to in high school. Lets just say those didn't fit at all.....

Happy 4th of July

We went to my house in Garden Valley for the 4th of July. The parade was on Sunday and we had a great time watching the fireworks with family and friends!

Utah Fun

While in Utah we went back to BYU and walked around campus. We also were able to go to Boondocks with my parents. I know its a place for kids to play but Ryan and I had just as much fun there as did the little ones!

My Cousins Wedding

Ryan and I went down to Centerville Utah for my cousin Alyssa's wedding. It was a beautiful day and not too hot. After the wedding we went to a family luncheon and then to my aunts' house for the reception. It was decorated so nice and they live on the hill on the sun was setting... Lets just say it was a perfect day!! It was great to see all our family again and to catch up.
