Taboo with the Stolworthy's is no "game."

Have you ever played Taboo?

Think hard before playing next time.  You will get quite the reality check
 or at least a karate chop to the throat of your self esteem.

My mom & I were chatting about some hilarious things the other day 
when a very sore memory replayed in my mind.

It was Christmas, Aunt Julie & Unkie Ron's family was there & we were playing Taboo.

My mom said, "Rachel & Danielle both do this, but Danielle is really good at it!"

             "Makeup!"                              "HAIR!"          

            "Singing!"          "Drawing!"                    "COOKING!"


Shoot, really? Thanks, y'all.

It felt kinda like this...
Yeah the very attractive man in the center is me.

Although she meant well--she didn't want to just say "Danielle's really good at this!" if it's something I do, too--apparently there are all sorts of things Deej is better at than me.  
Nothing like family holidays to give you a nice wake up call of your lack of talents!

Anyways, my mom & I  were crying we were laughing so hard. I think that is Weston's favorite memory w/ my family; he reminds me of it all the time....



The Analogous Weston (Please read, he is so funny!)

Let me share with you an analogy Weston gave last night.

I'm really hoping this translates through. I could not breath I was laughing so hard.

He was being 100% serious & the conversation at hand was why we buy milk & not soy milk. Weston was trying to convince me that he needs soy milk because it's healthier. I do believe it's healthier, but coming from a boy that eats like a horse & would eat ice cream for every meal if we had it.  That being said, I do not believe it is cost efficient to have soy milk at the house. Weston goes through a gallon of milk in half a week & he's the only milk user we have.  

So, I think I still win with "We can't afford soy milk."

Here's his analogy he used in his argument:
(feel free to add a very persuasive tone and some dramatics, because that was his delivery, making me laugh even harder)

"Would you rather give me an ounce of rat poison or 5 gallons of milk?"

Uhhh...where's the question?

Oh my goodness, I laughed so hard & would pause, trying to interpret & then laugh some more.

We were both crying-laughing so hard. 
Finally, he was able to breathe long enough to explain.

Rat Poison = Milk
Milk = Soy Milk

Yeah, don't you love when the item being symbolized is actually in an analogy as the symbol for something else?

Lost? Yeah, me too.

Since when do rats have opposable thumbs? This picture is anatomically WRONG.


Both are evil apparently.

No really, watch Forks Over Knives & you will really believe it. 
However, then look at our budget & you won't care



Weston, EMT

Guess what??

Weston is now a member of the Salem City EMS!

I am so excited for him! 
He's so thrilled and nervous!

He will be such a great EMT!

This is one busy bee! He will be going to school, working & doing EMT.
Have I mentioned he has a 3.65 gpa so far this semester! It's only climbing up, too! He is doing so well!

I'm so proud of Wes & his successes!

Love that man of mine.




That is the theme of this week.

Just surviving! 
We're having fun in the evenings, but Weston's been in pain from his hernia/abdominal strain. Yeah, they're not sure which it is. So, guess what he gets to do? Lie low for a month & then if it improves it was a strain & if not, then looks like surgery! Poor guy he's been miserable for a while, we're hoping for improvement!

I've been a busy bee taking/editing Tasha & Devin's engagement pictures, creating & fixing & recreating invitations to her specifications & to my printing company's liking. & hand-making a veil. That's just at night. Work still happens during the day.  All while worrying my brains out about Weston, not about the hernia, just some other health stuff & then some other things going on in life, too!  This week & last week have just absolutely crawled by, but I've almost made it to the weekend. Almost.
This weekend will consist of veil making. & hand-beading. It is so time consuming, but it will be beautiful. However, bridal shots are on Monday...SO pretty much, it has to be done!  Wish me luck! & then back to another awesome work week!

Have I mentioned that my boss, that I love SO much, is leaving?  She's retiring. She's not that old, just has some health stuff that is exacerbated by her stressful job, so she's quitting! I'm so so bummed.

Another one of my favorite coworkers left this summer, too.  
The dynamics are just changing way too drastically for my liking!

Anyways, I'm just tired & wiped & exhausted. Emotionally & mentally!
BUT it has been a good week! Wes & I have enjoyed our evenings together, even though my brain is half there while I'm doing other things!
Joan is coming to stay with us this weekend, so that will be fun, hopefully I'm not too much of a dead-beat!
& we're going to the temple on Saturday night! I'm so so so excited!  I love going to the temple! Wes & I went once this summer together but other than that we haven't been to the temple together since April! It will be so nice!

Anyways, this is wordy & words are boring, so I'll stop.
Thanks for reading if your eyes haven't fallen onto your keyboard yet.



I'm tired & this week has been really really really crazy. I just want to sleep for like a year straight. I think that'd make me feel rested juuuuuust about right.

ALSO, Weston needs surgery. That will probably be next week sometime.
Have I mentioned I'm tired. I'm really tired.

Also, Weston was showing me the difference the other night between elk & Deer.
I thought you'd like to see.
That is an elk.

Also, do you see the air mattress blown up? & the movie cabinet open?
Yes, like I said, Weston needs surgery so this is what our evenings have looked like, after work, school, scouts & everything else. Anyways, he's probably damaging himself more by posing like this.
Anyways, he's been down & out. It's sad to see!
BUT Weston is seriously owning school this semester. 
He's so awesome.
Seriously, he got a 94 on his first math exam. I am so proud of him!

We're going on a date tonight to an institute devotional thing. I'm very excited. I've missed all those YSA devotional/firesides since I got married & this is one for married peeps, so that'll be fun & new.

Also, baby brother in Mexico is doing great. I love his letters. He makes my day every Monday!


2 Years of Awesome!

Weston rocks.

I love being married to him.

We seriously have so much fun.

Our pillow talks are hilarious. As long as he stays awake longer than 30 seconds after hitting the pillow.

But really, I love Weston.

These 2 years have been so wonderful with some crazy twists & turns!

Our life plans change daily.
I wish I was kidding.

Anyway, happy 2 year anniversary, babe, I love you!
