Carlos Looser

Why is Boozer still in a Utah Jazz uniform. Lets take a trip back down memory lane, shall we? Last December after a road loss, Boozer stated, "I am getting a raise no matter what." he told us he was opting out and we began planning for the future. Fast forward to this offseason, Boozer looks around and no one wanted him, so he opted in to his final year with the Jazz. This put the Jazz in a horrible financial position and infuriated fans. Fast forward another few months, Boozer tells the media that he and the Jazz have agreed to trade him and then tells them he would love to play in Chicago or Miami. This last act of defiance ruined any chance he had of redeeming himself in the eyes of loyal Jazz fans. After his outrageous comments it is discovered that neither the Bulls nor the Heat want him. So typical of Jazz brass, nothing happens. Boozer works out all summer and starts on opening night. Then he puts up the performance of a life time, making 1 of his first 10 shots. What a start. I can see why he thinks he is worth $15 million a year.

Thank you Carlos Boozer for giving me a reason to love the Jazz even more. P.S. how about that raise?

My First Time...

Marissa has been begging me to blog it out now for a few months, so I guess I will give it a go and see how it feels.... She told me that I can write whatever I want, I am going to hold her to that.

Halloween is upon us! Halloween used to be my favorite holiday, but i am discovering as a married man, it doesn't hold the same allure. Their are no dance parties or costume parties. Instead there are decorations and pumpkin carving. Don't get me wrong, those things are fun, but its just not the same. I explained this frustration to my wife (not in those words...don't want to kindle her wrath..). She then suggested a fantastic idea that would help rejuvenate those old feelings. We are doing a murder mystery dinner date!!! We have invited a few couples and are giving them each their own role. Then we will get together and act out our parts over dinner and explain the mystery. It will be so fun!!

Well, that was my first attempt, hope someone liked it.

6 months down, eternity to go

happy six month anniversary to me... and to the hubby. I can't believe we have been married six months, that is half a year! Time flies. It has honestly been so fun. The first few months are the hardest right? I think we are in the green now haha. Can't wait for the next six months, and the next and the next, etc.

ps I posted this under Col's name on accident, but this is obviously me.

Lucky me

I'm feeling very grateful today, don't know why really. I guess it's just one of those days where I realize life is good. It's crazy and it's hectic and sometimes I feel completely overwhelmed and out of control but it is good. I realized I'm pretty dang lucky. I have nothing that I can really complain about when i consider everything. I have everything I ever need. My wonderful, amazing, thoughtful, ravishingly good looking looking husband. The gospel of Jesus Christ and all the many blessing that come from my Heavenly Father and an awesome family that loves me. I need to stop and count my blessing more often. Here are a few other things I'm grateful at the moment.

1. Food (just went grocery shopping for the first time in like a month, lazy i know. A full fridge is so nice.)
2. My opportunity to go to school right now. I complain that I hate it and most of the time I do but occasionally I remember I actually enjoy getting smarter.
3. My husband. I know I already kind of said this one but he is amazing. He does the laundry, cleans the house, cleans out my car, turns off football when I am around even though I know he wants to watch it really bad, doesn't complain about me hitting snooze about times every morning, and calls me at work just to tell me he loves me and thinks I'm hott. He's definitely a keeper, let me tell you.
4. Fall Leaves.
5. The absolutely gorgeous place I live.
6. Cookie dough chocolate milk shakes late at night.
7. My backyard with all the many trees bushes and weeds.
8. My awesome mom that will go out of her way to go pick some pictures I ordered at costco because I don't have a costco card.
9. Good friends that no matter how long it's been since you seen them last when you do it's just like old times.
10. Vanilla flavored candles
11. Our down syndrome neighbor that comes to visit us EVERY day without fail.
12. My new coat that I decided I need.
13. Pumpkins
14. My Testimony
15. Push over teachers that cancels an assignment because someone in the class complains
16. My piece of crap laptop that will die any day but is staying alive because it must know that we can't afford to replace it.
17. My working able body
18. I can cook (I'm learning slowly and surely)
19. my toothbrush and floss.
20. My SaviorYes, this is my crazy disgusting husband and I love him.

my baby is a fast learner

I love flowers around the house. A vase full of flowers in my kitchen makes my heart happy and plus a girl always wants a man to buy her flowers. I would love it to be a surprise but I'll settle for less if I must. So I started subtly with my man.

Me: Wouldn't it be nice to have some flowers around the house? It would really bring some life to this place.

Colin: yeah it would, you should buy some.

Me: (Silence)

He wasn't exactly getting the point. I don't want to buy my own flowers. When people see them and say,"What beautiful flowers" I want to say, "Yeah my awesome husband bought them for me. Isn't he just so sweet?!" Maybe I am unrealistic. I mean I can't expect every night for him to come home with a bouquet of roses, kiss my feet, and serenade me with a song about how lucky he is to have me. (even though that would be awesome, probably not realistic.)

Anways, one day we were in a little disagreement. I don't even remember what it was about but all the sudden (don't even know where it came from) I throw in, "Well you don't even buy me flowers!" So rude I know. Colin seemed to be confused by this and didn't really respond to it. He was probably racking his brain trying to remember if i had told him to buy me flowers. (I clearly had but I guess not in man language)

So maybe a week later, we are chilling at home and Colin says he has to go Lowe's (he really meant Home Depot, he gets them mixed up a lot but I always correct him to his annoyment) I volunteer to stay home and hold down the fort because he always spends a million years in there. When he comes home he walks in with the most beautiful bouquet of grocery store flowers I've ever seen. The man bought me flowers! I was so happy. He is a sweetie even if i takes a little bit of probing.

So my flowers sit on my kitchen table where I admire them often and there they will stay until they are completely dead. My baby is a fast learner. When your wife says some flowers around the house would look nice, this means buy me some freaking flowers or pay for it.

slight problem

So I have a problem...

I always want to go shopping.
I always want to by new things.
I always want to spend money.

The reason this is a problem is because we are poor starving students and don't have money to spend. I have been refraining from going on a shopping spree for a very long time, mostly because Colin always wants to by new things and as the responsible wife I have to restrain him and remind him of what is most fall wardrobe. Ok no not really. If I told him that he would be super bugged. He thinks I already have way too many clothes. Just because I overly fill my closet, a dresser, and the whole bedroom floor with clothes does not mean that I don't need more right?

I did not used to have this problem, because whenever I had an itching for something new I would go out and buy something and my needs would be satisfied. All I'm saying is Colin better watch his wallet. A girl can only restrain herself so long. And since I've gone without for so long I'm going to need a lot to satisfy my needs.

ps I want these boots
