I found these pics online. Apparently I like some of Annie Leibovitz's work. She has some ugly stuff out there too, but I really like these Disney ones. They are lovely. Well, the Drew Barrymore one isn't Disney, those are Vogue pics, but lovely none the less. I looked at that particular issue of Vogue on ebay to see how much it was, and it's $15.00. What the crap?

I also found a cool blog. It is Normal Mormon Husband. I've linked it on the right, under blogs. I think it's brilliant. hahahaha. and funnny too. check it out.

And I am obsessed with many things. Here are a few: the twilight series (delicious) and anything Stephenie Meyer, the inheritance cycle (it's been way to long), Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince movie (will it ever have a trailer?), and the twilight movie. So excited. I am, really.

Big head

So I love the pictures I take, for the most part. I think it's bigheaded of me, but c'est la vie. hahaha. I hope to do something with the pics I take someday. Who knows? I want to get better. I love Ansel Adams. He inspires some of my pictures. I am not even remotely comparing myself to him, just stating that I enjoy his work. But yeah, I am boring today, and my last post was too. I think it's because Dustin is gone, and for one reason or another, it makes me a bit flat. I am better today, though, than I was yesterday, and on Monday.

We are having cheese and crackers and grapes for snack. I love this combination. love it love it love it. So does anyone read my posts? just curious. I am wondering if I have been writing for myself lately, which is fine. It's a good creative and venting outlet for me. Dustin and I had a pretty big to do the other week, and it was sooooo awful. We haven't ever had a fight like that before. And hopefully never again. But in the middle of it all, I sat at the computer and poured my guts out, and now it is in my journal. I try to include good and bad and all sorts of stuff. I don't want posterity to think that life is just a walk through the roses, because it isn't. Life has ups and downs, and love and hate, and good and bad, and boring bits, and adventurous bits. Marriage too. I want them to know that just because you have disagreements and misunderstanding, it doesn't mean you should run away from them. It means you have to work harder, and be constantly vigilant as Mad Eye Moody says. ;) Against anything that may tear you or your family apart. Anything.

Now my soapbox-ing is done. hahahahaha. I guess not so boring afterall. At least for me. hehe.

Oakland, CA

I just wanted to put this picture here because I like it. It's from our Farmington Canyon wheeling trip.
So Dustin is in Oakland until Thursday, which is Pioneer Day. Dustin gets Friday off instead of Thursday, because he is "working" on Thursday. He's actually flying back on Thursday and he'll be here around 3pm. hahahaha. I like it. He got there yesterday, and he said he will never think of West Valley as ghetto ever again. Those are my words, not his, but that is the gist of it. hahahaha.

I guess the distribution center there in Oakland got robbed a couple of weeks ago, and that is the only one in the whole world that has ever been robbed. Insane. Also, Dustin and Grayson, the other guy who went with him, figured they would ask the locals where to go and the what to see and where to eat, because they know best. Well, they all said to go to San Fransisco. hahahaha. They didn't say anywhere in Oakland. They said to go across the bay. How sad. But good to know too. Dustin has the camera, so I will post pics later when he gets back. They went to Fisherman's Wharf and had some good seafood. :D And they said they were going to try to find the windy road. I don't know what its called, but I hope they find it. hahaha. Maybe Dustin won't dislike California so much after this trip. hahahhaaha. It's cold there. Like 55 degrees this morning. So nutty.

Our camera wasn't working last week, so we figured it was broken. We thought that it would be harmless to take it apart, because things could only get better. By we, I mean Dustin. hahaha. So he took it all apart, and this is what it looks like naked. But he was able to get it all put back together after a few tries and a midnight run to Wal-Mart to get small enough screw drivers. All so he could take it with him to Oakland. Works for me, because it is fixed now. :) Dustin is a handy dandy.
Miaya and I went to the park today. This park is pretty cool, it has these water jet things that shoot out of the ground, and it's hot outside, so it was lovely. There is also this yucky little green stream, full of algae, so of course, Miaya preferred it to the clean water jets. hahaha. It was fun though. She got to see these itty bitty fish, or tadpoles. I think they were fish. It was fun, and sunny. Interestingly enough, I saw some huge gray clouds floating in our direction, so we went home, and about 30 mins after we got home, it started pouring rain, and thundering, and lightning a bit. It was awesome. It rained for a good half an hour, at least. Solid rain. It was great. I love the summer thunderstorms here. Beautiful.

Miaya playing

July 5, 2008

Miaya likes to play. She saw the bigger folks playing, so she wanted to join the fun. hahahha. She decided to use the big ball instead of the little birdie thinger. She's a nut, but a fun nut.

July 4th

Independence day was last week. We spent the weekend celebrating in various ways. On Friday we went wheeling up Farmington Canyon. It was dusty, muddy, windy, hot, and fun. Always fun. :)
