Goals for Summer Break

Since I'm very lucky to have 2 1/2 months off this summer (another perk of teaching), I'm setting some goals of what I want to accomplish. I figure if I write them down for people to actually see them, I might be more motivated to do them. So here they are:

1. Sew, sew, sew. I have a ton of projects in my head and lots of fabric to use up.
2. Cook a lot! I have found so many recipes that I'm dying to try but since I work full time
I am usually too tired or I don't have enough time to make a lot of recipes. Plus I'll be
at home and cooking for my parents so I think they will buy the ingredients!
3. Work out - this is going to be the hardest goal to accomplish. I am lazy by nature and I
hate running, hate being sweaty, and hate wearing tennis shoes (I know that last one is
weird but it's true). But despite all that I really do want to get in shape, so I will try!
4. Spend time with my husband. Since law school stole him away from me this year, I
have really missed having him around. Hopefully his internship won't be as grueling
as his first year of law school and we can actually find time to do things together.
5. Get our new dog Dexter completely trained! This is definitely the most ambitious of
my goals and you would know this if you have met little Dex! He is one stubborn pup!
He is cuter than cute but very mischievious!

Well, wish me luck! I know it's early to be posting about summer but I'm seriously counting down the days! I can't wait to be home with my family and it's so awesome that I'll be there with Becca and Davis, Calder, Ivy, and Piper, and my parents! I also can't wait to hang out with my grams! I miss them all so much! And another exciting thing about being in Vegas is Utah is so close that we can do weekend trips to visit Ethan's family and our friends! Yay!! Seriously can it just be summer already!

Spring Break 2010!!

For the first time since high school I got to enjoy spring break (BYU doesn't believe in spring break)! It's one of the perks of being a teacher. And Ethan had his spring break at the same time, it's been so awesome and relaxing. My parents came down for a couple days to spoil us! We went to a bunch of really good restaurants, went to the movies, and explored ABQ! We went to the Acoma Pueblos which is the oldest, continuously inhabited city in the U.S! Pretty cool. We also went to the Petroglyph National Park and Old Town. Thanks again mom and dad, you treat us well! Here are some pics of the vacation!

Me and Ethan at the Acoma Pueblos or City in the sky!

Me and Ethan by their "ovens!" Thank goodness we live in modern times with electricity!

Us by a few petroglyphs! So cool!

At the Acoma pueblos. They built some of the houses with the only entrance to the house on the roof so if the Spanish came to invade they could pull up the ladders and they couldn't get into their homes! Good plan but those ladders look pretty dang heavy.

Me and my dad! So precious!
