Happy New Years = Cleaning Out My Phone

As I was cleaning out old texts on my phone today (for the new year!), I came across a section of texts that I had locked so I wouldn’t accidently delete them, and I realized something. Many people lock texts with important information, or that are meaningful, etc, etc. However, all of the texts I have saved were because they made me laugh. So I just thought I would share some of my favorites:

“I shafted Mr. Latin, because he almost killed us sailing. Really. And some other latin guy asked me out through a window today. They’re just too much for me to handle.”
        -Natalie Canfield. If you don't know her, you should because she has the best dating stories ever. 

“I’m in Provo. And I peed on their campus. The end.”
“So I sneezed today and my eye exploded again…”
       - Taken from my vast Kallie Johnson/Hillam Collection

 “Uhh did you know unicorns can walk on rainbows? Because according to Dora the Explorer they are the only things that can. I need to get me a unicorn asap.”
       -Allie Vincent. A.K.A. Allie my wife. (She used to be a nanny)

“I am sorry you have been crying…You aren’t pregnant dear.”
      -Ali my husband. He has learned that when my hormonal-birth-control-induce-no-reason-crying happens I always have a fear that I am prego. So sweet...he's always reassuring me. 

Then there are always good ones from the sisters:

“Hello?! Why didn’t you save us a spot at the parade?? We had to stand behind 3 rows of people on the middle of a melted snow cone!”
       -Elly (This was after a Days of ’47 Parade)


…and last but not least, my favorite one from Kassidy. This was a while a go when she was dating some guy (not her husband) who looked like Shrek when he turns into a human in the movie. I told her to write to Dear Abby for advice on their …problem…so she just wrote me a super long text:

“Dear Abby, I am a semi-attractive female in my early 20’s. I was raised in a shallow family with unrealistically high expectations for boys I date. I am currently seeing ‘Dave’ a tall, witty grad student who resembles a cartoon. But I have a problem with the way he dresses. ‘Dave’ has a terrible pant-shoe connection. It looks like he grew out of his pants 2 years ago. I am sometimes embarrassed to go out in public with him. Abby, how do I tell him he needs new pants without offending him? Sincerely, Shallow in SLC.”

Maybe these are only amusing to me...if that's the case, sorry for wasting your time. Happy New Years!

Hope you had yourself a Merry little Christmas!

It just took all of my self-control not to name this 'Happy Christmas, Harry!' but I didn't want my Harry Potter obsession to get to the point of annoying people.

But this year was a Christmas of firsts, that's for sure. So I thought I would share a few Christmas moments from last week. Promise I will write another witty blog about nothing tomorrow.

I guess we will start with the tree. Al was thinking ahead and brought it home after he found it in some warehouse he randomly happened to be helping clear out last year. Considering we don't really know where it came from, and it was free, I thought it was pretty cute. It has lights too, but I couldn't get a decent picture with them on.

Then, presents! Unfortunately we both sort of knew what we were getting before unwrapping it, but oh well. Al got some gold clubs, and I got a cricut machine! I bet you can guess which one Ali wrapped.

Ever since our hallway has been a putting course.

Also, in relation to Christmas. I decided to get crafty and we spent the whole months of November and December eating canned soup so I could make these:
I got the idea off of Pinterest. It's my new favorite website. I made these pretzel chocolate things (that I also found on Pinterest) to put inside of them. So, I guess that is my craft for the year.

We spent Christmas day with my fam, and then the next day was Christmas with Al's. Overall it was a great couple days, I would say....oh I can't resist. Happy Christmas, Harry!
