Lists lists lists...

Summer Goals:
These popped into my head as I was driving to work this morning...

1. Talk  on cellphone while driving only in an emergency (or there is really bad traffic)*
2. Buy a hammock.
3. Make healthy crock pot meals.  
4. Run 3 5Ks (Utah Valley Marathon, Undead Race, Lehi Roundup - I'm in it for the t-shirts) 
5. Buy a real [non love seat] couch or some armchairs
6.  Make something I'm proud of
7. Get into zero car accidents**
8. Ride the shuttle 3/5 days a week

*I made this goal this morning, and forgot about it this evening as I was talking to my mom backing out of a parking spot. 
**Collision occurred. (not my fault, but probably not good that i was on a cell phone...)

Things I love about Herrmann A:

1. I love that he was born with a quiet demeanor while I cannot prevent myself from saying whatever is on my mind. He gives everyone the benefit of the doubt.  
2. He never worries, and always calms my fears. 
3. He always listens to my crazy dreams. 
4. He'll eat anything I make, even if I think it kind of tastes like your mouth after you vomit. 
5. He likes to be on the phone with me even if we aren't talking. 
6. He's always loved me! Always always! 
7. Sometimes we talk in this hilarious child voice and call each other mom.

Grocery Shopping.

I always do my grocery shopping the Monday after I get paid. Aaron usually works on Mondays, and he really hates choosing what we eat. Basically he'll eat anything.

Anyway, Monday Aaron wasn't working, and got to see the inner workings of my brain. I write a list of dinners, lunches, breakfasts and take an inventory of what we have in the fridge and pantry. Then I write a grocery list of every thing we're missing. Then I write the list by aisle. This makes for a quick shopping trip, skipping all of the aisles we don't need.

Yeah I think thats pretty normal?

Anyway, After I made my usual shopping list, I decided to make two shopping lists and Aaron and I raced to grab our groceries first.

it was fun.

boring post? yeah i know.

mmm smell that virginia air.

Dear Utah,

Today it seems like a bit of Virginia blew in. It's warm, humid, rainy and there's even a bit of hail mixed in. I think I heard a hint of thunder... Do you smell that smell? That is spring in Virginia, here for a visit. If you could stay like this halfway through Summer, the Virginians will be very grateful.

(P.S. Your mountains looked very green this morning, keep up the good work)

This Morning....

I slept in. I pulled the blankets over my head as the bright spring sun came through the window and just slept for two extra hours with my husband curled up next to me. We both woke up with a smile, ready to take on the day. He kissed me on the shoulder.

This morning was a good morning.

Day 2 of P90X was fun. 
But if my husband saw me trying to figure out the difference between a hook, jab, uppercut and cross, he would have laughed himself to sleep.
I laughed myself the whole time and ended up just jabbing and dancing. 
My thoughts so far:

1. Tony Horton is a lot less annoying than Jillian Michaels, although I lov
e her, man she's annoying.
2. I think he really gives good pointers on posture while Jillian just tells you what to do.
3. I think the dvds have enough variation that I won't get too bored.
4. I'm not very good at sticking to things. 
5. I haven't done any weight lifting yet. 
6. I'll make it to day three. 

Goals - based off of various pictures of myself
go from here: 

(This is at work, it's a big inside joke going around. I don't think my face is this round, but you know, try not to hate.)

This is about fifteen pounds. 

and maybe this:
Don't judge me... we all have our goals. Mine is just to get "Shakira" back up on that Mechanical bull wearing skin tight jeans and cowboy boots...

After what seems like a hard couple of weeks, 
realizing everything is exactly the way it should be,
is one of my favorite feelings.

Right now Aaron is installing a smoke detector. [I love him]
Our house smells sweet.
And maybe sometimes, I don't get the job that I want, I don't see my husband as much as I want to, and I don't look exactly the way I want to.

I remember that there are just too many good things in life. 
I love Aaron. I love the whirlwind of our lives in the span of eternity. 

I love being a wife.

April 1st!

A year ago today Aaron proposed to me!
It was a good day. I was wondering all day at work if Aaron would be proposing that night.
Happy happy day. Rose petals on the ground. Dancing to our favorite song...
Good times.
In other news, we are all moved in!!! I thought it would take us all WEEK long to be finished! Aaron, his brother Devon, and our friends Toby, Matt and Michael were awesome! They had to do only three trips with the big Astro Van while Ruth and I unpacked the kitchen.
Yesterday my family came over to our old apartment and we cleaned EVERYTHING! They did such a good job too :) :). They are great! And the new place is coming along really well too. I have so much space compared to my old apartment, that I don't even know what to do with it. For so long I've been putting vaccums in corners and tennis rackets behind televisions....
And so much counterspace.... droool....
I wish I could focus on blogging but the lady next to me is talking my ear off.
