update on my hermitism: i am in awe of the nice things you all said, and how many kindred spirits there are out there. and with that, i go back into seclusion. just kidding! my plans for the weekend include lots of emailing and checking out all of your blogs and getting to know you all a little better, as well as making some calls to california, and hanging out with a few girlfriends. "thanks ya'll" (said like britney spears- gross did you see her vma performance?) i am so grateful that so many of you "get" me, and i'm excited to call you my friends, talk to you soon.
update on my lunch routine obsession: i've said before that i eat the same thing for lunch every day, and it rotates only upon the shifting of the moons...a change has come. a delicious change. i recommend it whole heartedly. i use a greek pita as the crust (key), and any tomato sauce (homemade, jarred spagetti sauce, etc.), fresh mozzarella, chopped garlic (very, very important), and veggies (zuccini is a fave- tomatoes, corn, bell peppers, yum) sprinkle a little e.v.o.o. on top and cook at 400 degrees for 5-10 minutes. coarse salt and pepper (you lika da peppa?) oh my.
update on my brother in law tyler, 26 year old stroke victim: i'm going to let the pictures do the talking. he is doing fantastic, and has started to pose again. he still has some "glitches" but his determination and work ethic are making miracles happen. look at his progress here!
update on my photography experiment: i have love love loved doing all the photo shoots this summer, they kept me busy, progressing, and feeling creative. this month i feel ready to get some lenses i've been wanting, and i'm bound and determined to learn photo shop (tara pakosta- can i fly to your house for a weekend intensive?). in the mean time, i have some family shoots lined up in idaho falls the last weekend of this month, if anyone else in the area is interested, email me, and i can fit you in too.
update on our infertility: grant has taken antibiotics for his skin for like, a long time, which we recently found out is toxic to sperm (why is this not the first thing they ask???). his meds were switched yesterday, and sperm count should be normal in about 90 days. i am taking advantage of the 90 days of no "waiting to see" stress by getting massages, exercising, taking prenatels, generally relaxing, and eating nutritiously so that i will be primed for conception!
update on why living in utah is cool: we are getting a steve and barry's. the list of stores that i have ordered to be built here is nearing completion. some are taking a little too long (trader joes i'm talking to you! h&m i'm getting sick of your defiance....)
update on the power of the force: it is still not to be underestimated.
