Happy, Happy Birthday Mother Dear!

I know this post is a day late, but I wasnt able to post it yesterday...anyways, yesterday was my mom's 53rd birthday. I know this doesnt mean much to most, if any of you, but I just wanted to give a shout out to the coolest mom in the whole world. I love my mom more and more the older I get and I realize that she has taught me so much about who I am and who I want to be over the course of my lifetime. I don't know how someone can go through so much in their life and still be able to be happy. Mom, I am so proud of you for everything you have had to overcome, I hope I have inherited a portion of your strength. Thanks for being so easy and fun to talk to. I love you!!

Blogging motivation

It has been brought to my attention that my blog has gotten very boring as of late. Sorry that my blogging motivation has dropped significantly in the last month or so. Maybe my life has just gotten too boring, or maybe I have have been too busy stressing about getting things done to move, or there is even the chance that I have actually been trying to work during the day instead of surf the Internet. Whatever it is I apologize to all of you who have so anxiously been checking my blog for an exciting post only to be sorely disappointed. Here is a brief update of whats been going on....

I actually have something to blog for Troy. He went on a brother-in-laws plus my dad mountain biking weekend to Grand Junction, CO. They ended up having alot of fun, I don't know if it was the mountain biking that they enjoyed more or the karaoke at the local bar. The two nights they were gone I had to have my nephew Isac stay with me one night so I wouldnt be too scared and then the second night my sisters and all their kids had a huge sleepover at my house. It was just one huge tornado. We ended up ordering pizza and eventually decorating easter eggs. It was a definate wake up call that I do NOT want to have 5 kids! I think I would be OK with just 1. Here are some pics from the boys adventure...

We also had a really fun Easter holiday. We had breakfast with friends, went to church, had lunch and an egg hunt at Amy's, then went over to another friend's house and played cards all night. It was an eventful day, but really fun! Here are some pics from the day...

Emily loves her Uncle Troy!

Will was late for his lunch at the Country Club

Ireland seemed a little confused about this whole egg thing...

The new baby Skye...

And finally, me and my sweetie!

I can't believe we actually did it...

Well, it's official we went and signed papers last night on our new house we will be building out in Hooper. I know, it's a shock, huh? We seriously must be crazy! We are both really excited about it, but are not looking forward to the whirlwind we are about to go through with all the changes. We will be renting out our current house so if any of you know anyone who is looking for a house to rent in Kaysville let us know. We have already listed it and have been getting a TON of interest so I'm sure it will go fast. The projected move in date we are shooting for is May 1st. Amy, you better start clearing out your basement for us and let Troy know when he can help Ryan finish the bathroom. It's really happening!!! The house we are building is actually the same as the model home in the picture I posted, it should be completed in August. We thought this was a good investment for us while we have two incomes and no kids so we can sit on the equity of both houses for a few years before we move to Idaho and settle down. It's funny because I have just been so excited about it until last night when we were out there, I realized that there are actually people that I will miss here! I hadnt even thought about that yet in the midst of my excitement. Thank goodness for blogging, right?! :)

Husband Tag

What is your husbands name? Troy Victor Jeffs

How long have you been together? Met in November 2005 and married December 2006, so 2 years and 4 months I guess

How long did you date? Umm...that depends on who you ask, Troy would probably say since Jan 2006, but I didnt really know we were until July 2006

Who eats more? Umm...we both eat more than we should!

Who said I love you first? Troy did and it was totally out of no where because I thought in his mind we were just friends (even though I REALLY REALLY liked him!)

Who is taller? Troy definately has me beat there

Who has more speeding tickets?I think Troy, I havent gotten a ticket since I was 16

Who is smarter? Well, I like to think I am smarter considering the fact that Troy didn't even graduate from high school, but he really does know alot more than I do about alot of things, but I am smarter in some areas, too

Who is more sensitive? Umm...I don't really want to answer this...I can be so sensitive that it's embarrassing

Who does the laundry? I do because it was of the thing I am OCD about

Who does the dishes? Troy is really good about doing the dishes when he has time b/c he knows how much I hate it.

Who sleeps on the right? Troy does b/c it is closer to the door so that if a bad guy comes in Troy can protect me. I am freak, I know. I have a phobia about sleeping by the door.

Who pays the bills? I do and I hate it b/c I would rather be spending money on fun stuff

Who mows the lawn? Troy, although I did have to do it once last year b/c our lawn was just embarrassing and he was too busy

Who cooks dinner? I do and I really like it, but Troy will from time to time

Who drives when you are together? Troy

Who is more stubborn? I thought I was the most stubborn person in the world, but I was proved wrong after marrying Troy. He is getting alot better though! :)
Who is the first to admit when wrong? Let's not even go there...
Who's parents do you see more often? Well, we have 4 parents in 4 different places so it is hard to see them all regularly, but I would probably say that we make an effort to see Troy's dad the most because he is sad and lonely. I talk to my mom often, but only see her probably a couple times a month. My dad, we see when he happens to be hanging out at my sister's house while we are there. And Troy's mom lives in Idaho so we probably see her the least.
Who has more friends? I definately do, since he has lived in Idaho the past 7 years and the friends he left here aren't really the type of friends he wants to have anymore. He has made some good ones over the past year though. :)
Who wears the pants in the family? That's a good question, I have never really thought about that before. I think we both probably think that we are the one in charge.
Who eats more sweets? Probably Troy, I am more of a savory eater.
Guilty pleasures? I can't think of anything out of the ordinary, but he loves camping more than anyone else I've ever met in my life! Well, other than his brother Scott!

Who kissed whom first? He did

Who asked who out first? I guess he did. Since we met online with him in Idaho and me in Bountiful it was his idea to meet after talking for awhile, I guess that answers this question???

Who proposed?He did. On my birthday in Idaho. He blind folded me when we left his house and didnt take it off until we were standing on the bridge in the picture at the top of my page. We took this picture and didnt realize until we looked at it later that the rose petals are in the shape of a heart...
Who has more siblings? He has 4 brothers, I have 2 sisters and 1 brother
What is my favorite thing about him? On a serious note, my absolute favorite thing about him is that he is such a genuine person and he lives his life the way he does because he WANTS to, not because someone told him to or because he feels obligated. I admire the courage that he had to change his lifestyle and have his whole world flipped upside down because he wanted to be a better person without the pressure of anyone else. I love him because he CHOSE to change all on his own and that's how I know that he is real and his testimony is true. And he is constantly making me laugh at the most ridiculous things. For instance...

I tag...Amy, Jenni, Brooke, and Holly
