We all Scream for Ice Cream

Thursday night Mik and I made our first batch of homemade ice cream for the summer. Maybe if we act like it's summer it will come? We added lavender essential oil to vanilla ice cream (Miks idea) and it was delicious!

Elder Dork

Kyler gets home in exactly one week! Just thinking about it makes me want to jump up and down slash brings tears to my eyes. Preparing for Kyler to get home has been like getting ready for a new baby. My mom got his room all ready and clean, homecoming plans were made and posters and banners created for the airport reunion (more jumping up and down and tears come to mind). Mik has been counting down the days for weeks now (he just may be more excited then me, he finally gets his BFF back!); 2 scooters have been insured, tuned and cleaned (apparently no easy task, this has taken weeks) and the xbox is being warmed up. But in all this I guess we forgot to ask Elder Roney how he feels. I emailed him pictures from Nancy's bday party and this was his reply:
"thanks for the pics. that reminded me why i want to come home haha. i was thinking otherwise for a bit. see ya later aligata!"
I'm glad I could remind him why it's time for him to come home after 2 long years!

Nifty Fifty

Yesterday Aunt Nancy turned 50 (I can only hope I look as amazing as she does when I turn 50!) and we celebrated with a fiesta! We all donned sombreros (except miss keely who claimed to be already having a bad enough hair day), ate delicious food, hit a pinata and enjoyed lovely company.

Uh sorry Karson wrong nationality!

There were 50 balloons decorating the party and at the end we let them all go. Karson was pumped!

That look on his face after they were released is priceless!

My mom had the genious idea of gifting Nancy 50 nailpolishes, it was a huge hit! Everyone starting enjoying and using them right away.

Cute little Nora took full advantage of the situation, getting a manicure using 10 different colors!

Happy Birthday Nancy!

Dear You

I came across this a couple weeks ago and it gave me a good laugh so I had to share! (if you click on it I think it will get bigger)

Girls Night!

I decided it was high time the girls in my family got together for a girls night. Kortni and I had both read Water for Elephants and were dying to see the movie so we decided to make a night of it. We (mom, Keely, Karly, Kortni and I) started the night off at the Beehive Bazaar. At the last General Conference President Thomas S. Monson suggested putting a picture of an LDS temple in every room of our homes to serve as a reminder. Naturally I scooped up this watercolor of the Salt Lake Temple.

Bought my mom some Strawberry Basil jam for Mother's Day. Delish!

I've been eyeing this painting from Colett Yarro for some time now and decided to finally take the plunge. No buyers remorse here!
We ate a quick dinner then zipped straight to the movie. My mom had to drop Karly off at home (unfortunately she's not quite old enough for a PG13's yet!) so we bought tickets, treats and saved seats. Boredom took over and we decided to snap some pictures. It was a tricky business trying to get a picture with all 3 of us in it!

Mik went with his friend Riley to the Supercross in Salt Lake a couple weeks ago. Mik loved it! So much so that he and Riley got together for a BBQ last weekend to watch the finals in Vegas on tv!

Heaven on Earth

The best word to describe our week in Cayman? Heaven! I LOVE that there's no cell service, no shoes, no jeans and no flat irons. I love that I can hear the ocean from my bed, walking on sand daily, reading in a hammock and getting to spend this blissful week with my husby and family. No interruptions, no work, just fun.
I took zero pictures! When I asked Mik for his he sent me 2. They're of us in the plane on the way home. Quality. Check out my mom and Kortni's blogs for pictures of the actual trip!
