oh and by the way....

remember how I said I was so sick of Sawyer being sick? Now it's Matt & I who are sick and I am doubly sick of it! What a freaking joke! Sawyer still has a runny nose and cough sometimes, and Matt & I have the flu. Mine is significantly less bad than Matt's, he's come home from work at noon the last two days. We pretty much park Sawyer in front of the TV while we rest, and I HATE doing that! It makes me very excited for our Seattle trip though! Plus, I haven't seen Susie very much lately, so it'll be nice to have her all to ourselves in Seattle! What a fun birthday! Oh, and Dave Co. finally sold our van! Yeah! We were starting to wonder what on earth was supposed to happen with it, because we had about 5 or 6 people interested in it, and they could never get financing. And someone has made a very low ball offer on our Bear Lake lot. We countered and haven't heard back yet. We've learned a very valuable lesson from this though. Matt & I are not short term investors, it's too stressful. I think we'll just buy some duplexes or rentals and let them pay their own mortgages off and that's a much better thing for our brains. I really wanted to go help Kirsten & Dave move into their cute new house, but their kids are very susceptible to sickness, so I figured the best thing we could do is stay away. I'm feeling a lot better today though, so hopefully I'm done. Alicia & I are going to 311 on Thursday and I am very excited although I cannot picture little Mrs. Utah at a 311 show. We have seats though, so there will be no mosh-pitting. I guess we'll see! :)

freakin' cute head

Yesterday Sawyer & I randomly went to Idaho with Grandma & Grandpa Miller to help them do some back to school shopping with Mandy & Ron's kids. It was so much fun despite a rather ridiculous throwing up episode brought on by carsickness. Sawyer loves playing with her awesome cousins, Lizzy & Rachel just ate her up! I am so sick of cleaning up diarreha and throw up, and I am ready for no one to be sick. Matt came home from work sick today as well, so I am just kinda biding my time until things get back to normal. pretty blah day, it's time to be done with it. good night.

Alpine Slide!

This weekend while we were up at the cabin, we decided to go down to Park City and take Sawyer on the Alpine Slide, she loved it! It was just a really fun family time. Of course we had to run by the outlets on our way back, and Matt got some new golf shoes and Sawyer got a new very cute cherry outfit from Gymboree. Jed & Candace stayed over that night, which was very fun, they are very cool. I wish she could come on our girls trip to Phoenix in Septemeber, but she doesn't have anymore vacation time. boo

boo for pink eye...and croup...and ear infections

yeah, that's where I've been. Poor little Sawyer. one right after the other. last night I decided to take her to the InstaCare despite the fact that we had just been to see Dr. Knowlton for croup the morning before. I knew she was running a fever, but if you've ever tried to take a toddler's temperature you know how futile that is. By the time we got seen at the "insta"care, her temp was 104! She was such a trooper, playing in the waiting room, having a great old time with her cute daddy, that I was doubting whether I should have brought her in or not, but I am so glad I did. I guess her left ear is pretty stinkin' infected, poor lil thing. She's been so sweet though. I'm working on a really cool cake for Friday, I'm a little worried about matching her colors in fondant, they're pretty specific and so far have been impossible for me to replicate. (ew... I'm watching cribs now just for background noise, and it is RIDICULOUS how much wasted money there is in the world. You could save an entire nation from starvation with what you spend on your own insecurities and vanity, you stupid whores!) Anyway, I have compiled a list of things to do before I die. Some are really stupid, but here they are.
Things to do before I die…
¨ Train for and complete a triathlon (in the spring!)
¨ Stay in an over-water bungalow in Tahiti
¨ Design & build a home with Matt (one that has a great pool)
¨ Write a memoir
¨ Learn to keep a vegetable garden (starting next spring)
¨ Learn another language
¨ Start drawing/painting again (and keep it up)
¨ Learn to enjoy a team sport (and get good at it)
¨ Take our kids on a Disney cruise
¨ Make money as a model (after all those years attempting it, it would be nice to have some cash to show for it)
¨ Go on a good vacation with my sisters
¨ Develop better relationships with Janene & Carrie
¨ Learn to consistently feel the spirit & receive personal revelation
¨ Go on an African safari
¨ Swim with dolphins with my kids
¨ Go to Australia with Matt to see all his mission sites
¨ Take some culinary art classes and learn to do cakes better
¨ Be a good, cool aunt
¨ Be a great parent
¨ Always grow closer and more in love with Matt
¨ Be well read (classics)
¨ See smashing pumpkins in concert (will do in September!)
