Chris loves to play sports all the time but especially in the summer! This summer he is playing softball. He put the team together and is the captain and is pretty obsessed with it. Judy, Maddog, and Chris came up with the team name which is....Definitely Maybe. Shows you how much these boys loves Chick Flicks! Haha!

Little Lovie Lucy Lott!

We are finally an auntie and unky! My sister Christie and her husband Daniel had their first baby May 15th in Texas! They named her Lucy! I love her so much even though I wasn't there and I don't know when I will even get to meet her. But I am so excited to have a niece and I am excited for Christie and Daniel. They will be the best parents! I am already like a proud mama telling everyone about her and showing pictures. I'm going to be ten times worse when its our baby. But look at the precious little babe...

Random thoughts...


My Job:
So I got a job. A real job. An 8-5 desk job. So I have a lot of random thoughts bouncing around in my head all day. I mean 8 hours is a really long time. So sorry for the randomness but its comin atcha anyway.

Reality TV:
I really like TV. I mean its just so entertaining to me. Its not like I sit around and watch it all day. But Chris and I have the shows we watch every week and I just love it. I am completely addicted to reality shows. How could I not be when that is all thats on TV anymore?! Take my poll on the side of this guy. I'm curious to see what everyone else is into. ----------------->

Some of my faves:

The Hills is so lame to me but I've just watched it so long I can't just stop. I just think Rob is hilarious and I'm obsessed with Beefy.



I think Melissa is my fave this season on DWTS for so many reasons..and that is my favorite outift of the season. I love the Gosselin family! Hannah is my favorite of the 8!

Relationships:
I was talking to a girl friend today and we were talking about relationships. And do you know what I just can't understand? How can some people just have no desire to get married or have kids?! I mean I know that not everyone does the "mormon thing" and gets married as young as you can and have tons of kids and never go to work. But I can't believe there are some people that want to just live their lives independently without the responsibility of being in a committed relationship or having to raise children FOREVER! Its just my opinion but it just feels empty to me. I love my eternal commitment to Chris and can't wait to raise a family with him. There is no better plan to me.

Music:
I love music. How different would everything be without it? I mean... scary movies wouldn't be scary, there wouldn't be dancing, church wouldn't have hymns, no one could get pumped up at sports games...I mean life would just be boring.

Babies:
My sister Christie is having her first baby this week. I wish I were in Texas so I could meet that little girl and show her all the love her auntie has. I already have nick names for her and I got her a pink bling bling binkie. I'm trying to decide when we want to start having kids. I feel like I have baby fever but then I think of the actual responsibility and I change my mind. We'll see...but we do already have names picked out.
Look at that face!


Car Dancing!
I don't ever want to be so grown up or stressed out that I can't take time to car dance. I just made up a new car dance to Lady Gaga's "Just Dance" on the way to the gym yesterday and I just think its the most fun thing ever. I think it is even more fun to dance in the car than out of it. I think next time we're doin the dance I'll pull out the camera and record it.

That's all I've got for today! Shout out to Kimmie for her birthday this week! Happy Birthday Kiz!

LASIK

I survived eye surgery!!! It is the best feeling knowing that I will never have to get up when I'm so tired to take my contacts out, or have to put my contacts in when I get up early and my eyes hurt for the rest of the day, and I won't have to wake up in the middle of the night and squint until my eyes hurt just to see the clock to make sure its not time for me to wake up! I can just see with my own eyes and it is fantastic! I also am glad its over bebcause I never want to hear the words CORNEAL FLAP again!

I had to get my eyes dialated two days before the surgery and I was lookin weird but I thought it was funny. Keep in mind during all these pictures that I couldn't wear a stitch of makeup on surgery day and I can't wear any eye makeup for a week after. I've learned to accept my natural flaws.

So on Thursday morning we drove down to Ogden, UT for the surgery. We had to leave at 5:00 in the morning because my appointment was at 8:30. I didn't realize that I was so nervous until we actually pulled in. Then I started freaking out because I realized my eyes were getting cut open. So we said a prayer in the car in the parking lot.

Here are some videos we took before the surgery.

Once we got in in there I was shocked to see so many people waiting to go in for surgery. They pretty much had everyone lined up and every 15 minutes a new person went in. There is a TV right outside the operating room where everyone in the waiting room can just watch the entire process of the person getting surgery right then. Chris made sure I didn't look at it because I would either throw up or back out. Finally after all my eye checks I was next in the eye numbing room. I took my Valium and went and got my eyes numbed up and ready to go.

Chris took a picture of the screen while my eye was getting lasered. I didn't feel anything during the surgery. I saw them wiping my eye and lifting the flap they cut but it didn't look like it was my eye. It just looked like they were doing something right in front of my eye. It was weird because it would just go dark and then I would see something that looked like outerspace and the milky way. I just had to stare at a light and then I was done.
When I was done it just looked like I was wearing some foggy contacts for a little while. This is right when I came out of the operating room. And they put those shield things over my eyes. We stopped at Panda Express after. We don't have one in Idaho so we always have to go there when we have an opportunity. I was a little loopy because of the medicine so Chris seized the opportunity to take a video of me while I was out of it. I hardly even remember him filming this.

The whole three hours home I was hidden under a jacket because it was way too bright outside for my eyes. Every now and then I would be like "baaaaaabe..can you hand me the M&Ms..Baaaabe...can you hand me the doughnut holes...panda express...beef jerky.." that type of thing. Chris was such a good husband..he woke me up every hour and held my eyes open to give me my hourly eye drops. I was not very easy to work with because I was so tired and my eyes were not doing what I was telling them to. We made it home and I pretty much slept the rest of the day away just giving those ojos a little rest.
Here is my cool hoodie that the eye center gave me as a gift for being the best patient they have ever had.......ok ok everyone gets one.
I woke up this morning and was able to see. Ah the miracle of sight! Thank you Mom and Dad for the best gift ever!
