Happiness Laptopified

Funny that my sister, Michelle commented today that maybe Blaine will love me enough to buy me a new laptop (or something to that effect)... because today Blaine brought me home an early Mother's Day present.
He was able to buy the same MacBook Pro that he had to give back to "the man". Today I love "the man", and more importantly--I love my man for pulling some strings and making this happen. I am so excited I can hardly stand it. No more searching for a wireless signal. No more holding the speaker cord just right. No more sticky mouse buttons. No more nonexistent battery. No more crappy memory.
The best part of this special surprise was that he wrapped it (because he knows how much I love unwrapping presents) and the sweet card Blaine wrote me, where he included this awesome quote: "Other men said they have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou are enough." I think I must have won some jackpot in heaven because frankly, I don't think I deserve to be this happy.
I love you too, Blaine.

Sheer Bliss

There's nothing better than driving with the top down, the sun shining, good company, a classic blaring, and a cold drink.

(By "top down", I mean sunroof open... by "good company", I mean Jake... by "classic", I mean Georgia Satellites... and by "cold drink", I mean Diet Coke.)

Hey, the sun was really shining. And it felt awesome.

I love my life.

Jillian Michaels is a bully.
And I love her.
She keeps beating me up everyday in my basement and I keep on going back for more. I just can't get enough of the pain, I guess.
She's pretty hard-core.
And I feel pretty hard-core when I crawl back upstairs a little more bruised and a little stronger everyday.
I'd blame Jake, but I love the little bugger and respect motherhood, childbirth, and breast-feeding too much to do that.
Speaking of "bull":
I can't help but feel antagonistic toward these "celebrity moms" who seemingly bounce back to bodacious bodies after 8 weeks of giving birth. Yeah, right. Like we believe that you are taking care of your darling baby 24-7 without a nanny or two, a wet nurse, a nutritionist, a personal trainer, and an army of beauty consultants.

I was honored to attend my cousins', Matt, Mesia and Seneca's temple sealing. It was such beautiful sealing and my uncle Joseph (the sealer) said some really amazing things about adoption. Matt and Mesia are amazing parents and this little girl is adorable. It was a great day.

My other family: The Kemptons
Megan, Scott and I represented the Lees. Way to bring it, guys.
We may have gotten a little carried away with the action feature on my camera.
Go Scott, Go!
