(booyah) and o m g it's healthyish.

trips, birthdays, sickness have taken over my past two weeks!! i'll post about those later.
my favorite thing this week has been a favorite of mine for lots of years. it's my favorite lotion. i can't do smells of any sort at the moment, so it's pleasantly "smell free". this is that kind of lotion you use when you feel like your skin just needs a huge drink. it's the perfect lotion to wear to church or when you want to show off your sexy limbs, because it leaves a healthy shine on the skin. it's a little on the greasy side, but i like that. and there you have it, my favorite lotion.


p.s. i find out what im REALLY having (boy or girl) on tuesday. woop woop!

the fourth

saturday was filled with swimming, potato salad, and family. loads of fun.

turns out we missed the memo that the ENTIRE ward at church was going out of town for the fourth. dave and i walked into our normal door into sacrament (15min late), empty. walked into the next door. empty. the whole ward was nestled into the tiny front part of the chapel. the only seats available? why of course, the 2 front and center rows. when does that EVER happen. we walked the walk of shame to the front. testimony meeting. i had to go up, there was only like 20 people there, and i was closest to the second counselor who kept staring at me. primary there were 8 kids in attendance. the piano player didn't show up. my ward after a solid sneaky year finally found out i can play the piano. how did i feel after bearing my testimony and finally giving in to playing the piano? wonderful. i just hope they remember how many notes i missed, so i can be the "last resort" piano player.

it's become a tradition to make a flag cake for me and jenny, so here is how you make it. (it's so easy it's embarrassing, but i just wanted to show off my cake :))

basic yellow or white cake mix

slice your strawberries like so

frost the cake with the cool whip (homemade whipped cream tastes the best, but i ran outta time)
and align strawberries like stripes!

add blueberries for the stars and voila! a flag cake!

4th cake

p.s. don't ever go to the boob church for fireworks. they were great last year, but this year it was literally sparklers the whole time. huge bummer.

hope everyone had a great fourth!

favorite things friday

it's hot. i bought something i thought i would never buy. a sunshade for my car. why did i think i would never buy one? no clue. just didn't think they worked i guess. well my friends let me tell you.. they work. i got in my friend lindsey's car, and i didn't have to give my usual "why do we live in arizona, it's too dang hot speech. it makes living in az bearable. i purchased one at costco for 6 something- dollars, and it's been the best 6 something dollars i've spent, like, in a week. :) this one came with two side shades as well that i'll probably put up when 'lil guy is in the back seat. so there's my new favorite thing this week.

p.s. am i the only one that cannot fold a sunshade? can't do it. that's what my trusty husband is for.

p.s.s. i didn't put the picture up of the sunshade bc i took it with my phone, and it looks dumb. the end.
