Long, Hot Summer

Sadly the Summer is dwindling to a close :( I'm a little bit sad but also kinda glad. Keep in mind I'm a big ol weirdo, but I don't love summer. I like it enough but not completely sold. In fact (keep in mind this could be the crazy talk) you know how people get depressed in the winter cause of the weather I feel like i get that way in the summer. This last week I was sure feeling this way (but I was also on my period so...) anyways here is my previous week!

Monday, July 23:
I decided to be like York and have a double chin

Monday has been dubbed as cleaning day! I don't like it, but that's how it happens! It was really nice to enjoy a clean house all week! So I guess I will stick with it! I also took Lisa and her new little family some dinner! It was Jake's first time meeting York, and he was loving it! Can't wait to have a family with this guy! I also tested out another new recipe! It was Doritos Chicken. It was definitely fun and different! Overall Verdict: Good!

Tuesday, July 24:

This morning, the Bunco girls and I went out to Breakfast for my sister Kylie's B-day, at Guru's. Later I came home and decided it was a movie kinda day. Jake, Nick, and I went to Batman. Of course my camera died right as I pulled it out, so  I snapped that pic on my phone, which is obviously high quality! Later we went to a BBQ for my grandpa's B-day and the holiday with the WHOLE "Schroeppel clan"! 

Wednesday, July 25:

Wednesday was swimming day! I went to my sister's condo pool for 2 hrs and got ZERO sunlight :(. Later that day I was talking to Jake and I hear him start laughing, so I asked him what's up? He comes in to show me his ridiculous outfit! We both just started cracking up! I also tried Crock Pot Chicken Taco's. Verdict: AMA-ZING! Maybe it was cause I felt good about doing this meal but I loved it more than any chicken taco I have ever had!

Thursday, July 26:

Watched these cuties, while their parents went to Trek. It was so fun, tiring, enlightening, and eventful! Got the kids up, fed them breakfast, got them ready, and headed out. We went to the mall to get Kylie a gift and go to the "Play Tree". The mall was hard but worth it! Went home put Mia down for a nap, went to my place so the kids could play with Bubba! Came back grabbed dinner, kids went to the neighbors. Came home bathed and did bedtime routine. I crashed fast as well! 

Friday, July 27th:

I had to make some moolah, so I worked the day away after a 9 day break! It was an extremely crazy day so I didn't get off work till 7:30!! We grabbed a late dinner at Winger's topped off with FREE asphalt pie! MMMM. We went home and both hit the pillow early! Lame yet simple Friday night!

Saturday, July 28:

Jake promised Nick a few days ago, we could go to Chuck-A-Rama for dinner! I supported this decision, some times that place is nasty, and this night it wasn't awful! It was a ton of fun and we all went home to enjoy the movie. At 11:00 is when I started to get sharp shoulder pain. Than at midnight I started crying cause it really hurt. Jake gave me a blessing and we found a position that was comfortable.

Sunday, July 29:

I woke up Sunday morning and was still in a lot of pain, but needed to go do my calling, so by the time church got out at 2 I was in severe pain, and sobbing. I felt stupid to go to the ER but after dealing with it for another Jake convinced me to go to the InstaCare. At 4:30 I came out of there with a shot in my hip, some REALLY nasty, an arm sling, two pain med prescriptions, and a diagnose of Tendinitis in my shoulder :(. We went and got my Prescriptions and head out the door for my neice's Birthday Party! She was the last of the Trio to turn 4, and she got her favorite things: clothes, shoes, and a new bike! Overall it made for an interesting Sunday!

I'm an AUNT (again)

This week was busy busy! Let's start from the beginning!

Monday, July 16:

One of my best friends, Lisa and her husband Casey had their first little boy! His name is York Arlo Walker and he is 9 lbs and 20 inches. Lisa is the first of our friends to have a baby and we couldn't be more excited for her! Her baby is so cute and sweet!

Tuesday, July 17:

This day was a Shitastic day. I was at work, which was fine. But I was working with a certain co-worker that I REALLY struggle with, and most days I can handle her. But today she was being EXTRA awesome *please note the heavy sarcasm. We got into this conversation about the environment and how I'm not that good about being friendly to it, long story short she called me a selfish person and it went all down hill from there. There were multiple comments throughout the day that by the end of my shift I wanted to cry or scream or go batshitcrazy on this lady! Instead I came home to my husband who had a 44oz diet Pepsi and a chocolate doughnut. Needless to say, he's my world and I love him!

Wednesday, July 18:

Another day of working, and Jake cooking, if you couldn't tell his cooking is Costa Vida. Which I NEVER complain about!! 

Thursday, July 19:

As of recently I have wanted to be this amazing Betty Crocker type of woman, and than I made my menu board so I really wanted to cook things to put on there. So I took the challenge to cook something from either my recipe books I got from our wedding, the recipes I got from our wedding or Pinterest. Just so I could have an array of food ideas and not the same old meals over and over again. This was inspired via Pinterest. It was fairly easy and sounded delicious. Overall: Jake enjoyed it. I liked it, but didn't love it. There was something about it that wasn't THAT great. So I probably won't make it again, but I am so happy I tried something new!

Friday, July 20:

I watched my friends little girl, while she went to the Dentist. She is almost one and is busy as ever! I left her alone for TWO seconds to get her baby food and came back to her playing with Bubba's dog food bowls! She was a crack up. Then it was lunch time and I didn't have a high chair so I sat her on my table and held her while I fed her. The outcome is me spilling the baby food on myself 4x. Yes 4! Earlier that morning my new car, would struggle starting and would make this weird noise so we took it in to get fixed. I was so bummed that it was already needing to be fixed. Turns out the battery was almost dead and it's one of those run of the mill type things. Either way we had to fork out 130 bucks for it!

Saturday, July 21:

Saturday was very busy! We got up early, and headed for Provo to buy a new dishwasher. Our's broke almost a YEAR ago! It's just a stupid purchase and we have bought other things before it, so it's been on the back burner. But I am sick of it, but lo and behold we left RC Willy outlet store with no dishwasher! Go figure! We than went on a much needed Costco run. Than to Target. I had a baby shower right after too! When I got home we went and grabbed some Wendy's than headed to Trafalga for some Lazer tag, we than used a gift card I had for some Frozen Yogurt! It was delicious. Good day indeed!

Sunday, July 22:
Today was great. We went to church and than came home and did our nap routine. After we went to my in law's for a BBQ. It was very quiet and fun! We came home and went house shopping. Okay not really. But this has a story along with it so be prepared. This last week Jake and my mom were talking about the future. They got on the subject of houses and Jake said he would want to buy a house soon, like the next couple years. I was thinking we would save lots and than buys one 7+ years from now and have a few kids in our town home. WELL, my mom was saying how right now it's the "Buyers Market" for housing, and it made Jake get this bee in his bonnet. He started talking about buying one of the houses in our area that was just built and what not. But I didn't like any of the new ones. Anyways there is this house in our neighborhood that has been built for awhile, and I never thought anything of it, but Nick told me its really nice on the inside, so I went and looked at the windows and it looked pretty cute, plus the yard is HUGE! So I was intrigued. Well, tonight I wanted to go look at it again, cause I have been stressing about when the right time to buy a house is. So we "happened" to find a window that was opened and we unlocked the door and walked inside. I LOVED it! (Trust me this isn't my first illegal stunt ;)) The point of the story is now Jake wants to call our Realtor, and see the background and if we can afford it! I'M NOT SAYING ITS GOING TO HAPPEN, but if I tell you I am moving in the future, don't act surprised.

Cutest wreath Ever and the week of BIRTHDAYS!

Monday July 9th: 

Monday, was a very slow and "do absolutely nothing" kind of day. That night when Jake came home we went for a bike ride and than came home and Jake cooked us dinner. Which I will never argue to. (even if it is JUST grilled cheese sandwiches). After we went out for dessert to get an Artic Circle shake!

Tuesday July 10th: 

On Tuesday I picked up a shift at work from 6-12, after my sister told me I should meet them at the pool, I didn't have my swimsuit though so I went in clothes...BIG mistake. It was 103 degrees and I was soaked within minutes. So I stayed for 40 minutes and left. After I went shopping for my sisters b-day gift. That day I got a little inspiration and painted my nails after an idea I saw on Pinterest. To end the day we crawled in bed and up came Jake with two otter pops. Yes, we were in bed, and yes it was past 10 pm. 

Wednesday, July 11: 

I worked on Wednesday also, but that night my hubbie was going to be playing ball till late, and I thought it was a perfect night for crafts or girls night. So I combined them! I invited my cousin Ashlee over to make these ADORABLE wreaths. We had dinner together and started on this craft that lasted till 1:30 am! When she arrived I realized we both were wearing dresses that were black and blue! Love this girl! Always a good time with her!

Thursday July 12:

On the 12th it was my sister's Amy's 29th birthday! She was leaving out of town that night, so as sister's we celebrated her birthday by going out to lunch at California Pizza Kitchen, and shopping afterwards. Very fun! That night Jake's brother in law came into town from Denver. We took our pass of all passes to Trafalga and played some mini golf. The boy in the picture is a kid from our ward who is less active and doesn't have the best home atmosphere. The past week he has been like an adopted son to us. 

Friday July 13th: 

As I said my sister went out of town so on Friday I watched her kiddo's for the day. Her little girl Gracie was being SO cute and asked me if we could do her make up. So while I got ready I let her play with my make up brushes. Than I started doing my hair, so of course we had to curl her hair. Than she saw my sparkly nail polish, and than we had to paint her nails. I didn't mind one bit! Made me really excited to have little girls! Than of course Cooper was being a good little boy on my bed drinking his bottle! That night was my niece Mia's 2nd birthday! This darling little gal has been the only grandchild that was born by herself without any cousins and it has been such a joy to enjoy her! We gave her a cute little outfit and a baby doll and she loved it!

Saturday, July 14:

This was a great Saturday! I woke up late, than got ready and went to get my nails done with my mother and sister. Than me and the husband met up with my brother in law before he left back to Denver for all you can eat Sushi. I'm already craving it again! Jake and I went home and met up with Nick (our adopted son) and grabbed dinner and a movie!

Sunday, July 15th:

Today was chill, Church, Primary lesson for Sharing time, home, nap. Made Jake's favorite dinner: Chicken poppyseed casserole, Nick also came over for dinner. We than ended the night with my favorite movie, Titanic. Perfect Sunday!
