Guilty Pleasure

I am so excited for this movie!
I never thought I would like this show,
untill I actually started watching it.
And some how I have grown quite fond of it.
Go figure?

23rd Birthday!

What a good birthday!
It kind of snuck up on me this year.
And as quickly as it came, it was over!
It began early when kitty wouldn't stop meowing at the door.
He LOVES to go outside so I just assumed he wanted to be let out.
But he wouldn't let up.
Then Ryan kept trying to tell me to let him out.
So I went to let him out and I had a surprise waiting for me:
My mom had come and decorated my door!
She is the best mom ever.
She is such a sweetie.
I love her to pieces.
Once Ry & my mom left for work,
I attempted to sleep in a little longer since it was my birthday and all.
But no go.
I was too excited to get the day going and to get my pup!
After getting ready, cleaning the house a bit and running the last few errands,
my brother Jordo drove me down to Ryan's work and we went to lunch.
Then he headed on our way to Cedar City to pick up the pup!
The anticipation and excitement wore me out!
We had to drive on a dirt road for 6 miles to get to the breeders house.
When we got to her house she took us in back and there were TONS of dachshunds.
There were a few right outside the door that I thought were the ones I was picking from,
but then the lady told her daughter to go get the right ones and brings over this lil guy:

It was love at first sight!

He whined for about 10 minutes into to the ride home.

We turned on some Jack Johnson and he fell right to sleep!

We had to take a few potty breaks: I held him most of the way home.

He kept climbing on my shoulders and sleeping there.

I think secretly he thinks he's a parrot.Meet dodge! We made it home around 8.

We were both pooped!

After our cute friends came over to visit with their pup,

we gave him a bath.

Poor lil guy was shivering so bad! We just love him to pieces!

After the first day or two,

Dodge and kitty are getting along nicely.

He is doing pretty good with potty training.

We have been crating him during the day and hasn't had an accident in there at all!

However he has had a few in the house but we are still working on it!

He seems to love everyone that approaches him.

He is just the biggest snuggler!

Gotta love those floppy ears!

Thank you friends & family who made me feel super loved on my birthday.

Makes getting older not so bad.

Moab 2010!

We made a lil weekend getaway to Moab with Chris & Rachel.
I was excited for this trip for a few reasons:
1. Road trip
2. Camping
3. Relaxation
4. LOTS of yummy food!
5. Hiking
6. Sunshine
7. Actually giving me something to blog about!
(windmills right outside of Spanish Fork Canyon)
Life has felt quite monotonous as of late.
So this was a nice break from the normal routine.
Something about being out in nature and ruggin it sure is relaxing.
I slept practically the whole drive there.
It helped that it was raining an overcast.
That's my favorite for road trips.
We arrived to our shed of a cabin that was barley big enough for two full sized beds:
Gotta LOVE the wood paneling right?
And how kind of them to make it homier by hanging pictures on the wall.
We got probably the most ghetto cabin that was available.
It looked as if all the other cabins had been remodeled.
But it did its job.
It POURED rain our first night there.
Not to mention cotton was flying EVERYWHERE.

After running around town trying to find a coffee maker for Rachel,
we locked ourselves in the cabin and played catch phrase till the wee hours of the morning.
That game is INTENSE!

We woke up at 11:30 the next morning
and realized we needed to get goin!
We headed over to Arches National Park.
Stopped at Balance Rock:
Hiked to Delicate Arch and realized how out of shape I actually am:
(don't mind the hair. It was windy!)
Something about these amazing natural structures takes my breath away and gives me goose bumps.
3 mile hike to Delicate Arch= 2 hour hike.
3 mile hike to Delicate Arch with husbands that have to climb to the top of every rock pretending to be Bear Grylls and want us to take their pictures=4.5 hour hike.
Then we stopped by the North & South Windows:
A full day of hiking + the sun= one tired Nessa.
That night we relaxed, ate dinner and some GIANT marshmellow's & smore's,
(holy belly ache!) And got into yet another intense game of Catch Phrase around the fire.
It sure is hard to stay somewhat quiet during that game.
We played well past the noise curfew.
I'm honestly surprise we didn't get the cops called on us for a noise complaint.
But I did sleep incredibly well that night.
Sunday was pretty uneventful.
We went up to Dead Horse Point with Rachel's family.
Took an afternoon nap
and headed home.
Cabin #3 baby!I'm feeling nice and refreshed!
I didn't get a tan,
but managed to get my fair share of bug bites.
Time to hit the tanning bed.
