Life Through Mi Cellular.

SO some people refer to their phones as a camera phone.
I refer to mine as a phone camera.
Because it's not so great at the whole phone job but a whole lot less great at the camera job.

It is no camera phone.

That being said here's somethings I enjoy that you might, too!
 We went to Deer Valley Resevoir on Sunday afternoon! It was so much fun!
 We each took a turn stepping on the ice. VERY thin ice. There were signs EVERYWHERE saying not to sep on it! We just stepped right onto it at the shoreline, so maybe 6 inches deep. No feet were sacrificed for this experience.
 Papa came to town last minute last Thursday night on his way home from a business trip in LA. He spent his layover that night with us! We were so happy he stopped by! He took us out to Tucanos. Oh goodness, good bye all veganness for the yummiest meal. Poor Danielle doesn't really care for it. As for me, I am a meat & potatoes kind of girl. I take after my dad that way.
Anyway, Twigget Spencie got very full. His pants became too tight & his tummy pooched. It was hilarious. He said he was eating to make up for last month starving & next month starving hahah but seriously he's lost so much weight since coming to BYU & he was skinny before that. Poor scrawny boy.
 These are some new things we have. I painted that painting & I made those yarn art things. My dear mother in law mistook them for Easter decorations, so I will be tossing the enormous one into the trash can & starting on a newer round one. They were really fun & easy to make! I'll make a tutorial for you on the next round one I make.  & that couch is our new couch. Well, our old new couch! Remember, our $15 couch? It's dark olive...Not sure how I feel about it, actually, I am, I want to cover it, but just not sure how I plan on doing that yet! But 2 thumbs up for it! It is comfy, & DEEP!
 Momma made us a puzzle of pictures of ourselves for Christmas a couple years ago. We love it & had fun putting it together last Sunday after our trip to the resevoir!
We take Tetris very seriously at our house.
 Creepy.  Found these on a hunt for Deej's guided reading antlers.
Find out what I'm talking about HERE.
 Okay, could this picture be more mugshot?
The creepy dead eyes & the poofy hair...Weston & His EMT friendys decided it'd be fun to do "hard" picturse. Only Weston's came out soul-less.
I keep trying to persuade him to get his picture taken again, because it creeps me out sitting on our counter.
 Trips to target are not true trips without a fashion show in the hat section.

 I really like that hat! Too bad my head is to large for most cute hats! One day, in heaven, there will be a hat section for huge heads!
 This wall just makes me happy. Especially because all of this stuff has been packed & towed to Salem already, our walls are bare!
 I'm not sure if I ever shared this. But it was hilarious. We had a lot of fun hunting for a Christmas tree this year. At Lowe's. No, seriously we loved our tree! It was beautiful! & looked great strapped
Also despite the dirty window from outside dirt, this is the view out the south side of our basement apartment. That is our pond to the side of our house. & then the other window that faces the west has a beautiful view of the fields. We love our new apartment! & that building you see right there is Salem Hills High School! We live right by it! Also that road that you see is the private drive to our house & one other house that is about 100 yds away. We love the secludedness!

So that's it! Life has been good & slightly stressful, but my fingernails have taken most of the brunt of that. Gross.  I'm trying to break my stressed out finger nail gnawing habit. I've been unsuccessful so far. It's in progress.


  1. Hey Rach! i love the new look! Also loved this post! I always love it when you post lotsa pics! The side view of Spencer totally cracked me up...he looked like either 1. The Grinch or 2. A cambodian child stretched to 6+' Hahahah! Sure love you!

  2. Great posting, Rachel! Surprised with the fun new look of your blog! So glad you got to spend time with Pops! Glad to see you get the country feel again but, I know, it's not Tennessee! Nothing can take the place of our BELOVED Tennessee! I miss it, too! Yesterday, I got a reminder when I saw wild turkeys on the Temple grounds at the Sacramento Temple. It is a most georgous Temple, by the way! We go every Friday night with the other two lady missionaries and it is so great to be together in such an awesome place!
