Pet Peeves

11/30 : Top 10 Pet Peeves

This is going to be hard to narrow it down to only 10. And they are all probably going to be work related. 

1. Utah Drivers
Seriously they are the worst! I refuse to get a Utah license plate cause I don't want to technically be considered a "utah" driver!! And because its a pain in the butt and my car can't pass the dumb safety and emissions test. My car is safe I promise.

2. Impatient people
It really amazes me how impatient people are! People can't stand in a checkout line for more than 30 seconds before they start huffing and puffing about the line taking too long. Even if they are the NEXT person in line!! 

3. When people interrupt
Its just plain rude! Am I right?! Let me finish my sentence before you blab your mouth!

4. Girls 
Let me explain... The ones that only care about how they look and how many guys they can get to date them. You know the kind. Attention whores. (excuse my language..) Making out with any guy who gives them the time of day. Changes who they are so guys will be more interested. LADIES!!! Have some self respect and BE YOU!!!

5. Leaving empty packages in cupboards/shelfs 
How hard is it to throw away an empty box?!

6. Repeating myself
Once or twice, ok. Three times, really?! Five + times.... You're just not listening and I am now annoyed.

7. The line "OH no barcode? I guess that means it's FREEEE!!!! har har har!!"
You're not funny. (Friends, I reeeeally hope you don't say this)

8. The "F" word
It makes me cringe.

9. Nosey people
That one person who has to be apart of every conversation ever! Even if they don't have a clue who or what you're talking about!

10. When people don't move their shopping carts
Thank you for leaving your cart right in front of my register. Oh and even better tell the customer behind you that they can take car of it. How nice of you. Or right in your parking spot when the cart return is 10 ft away from you. lazy.

I think working retail has made me dislike people juuuuust a tiny bit...

Jasmine & Danny Get Married!!

Friday July 12, 2013 my sister-in-law Jasmine and her fiance Danny were married and sealed for time and all eternity in the the Oquirrh Mountain Temple!

After a few months of stress, planning, worrying, and a few tears here and there. The day went beautifully! The temple was amazing as always! They day was long and busy but everything turned out so well! I couldn't be happier for the new Mr & Mrs. Danny Cheever! They were just glowing the entire day!

Here are some pictures from my phone from through out the day.

(not to toot my own horn... but I wrote on that chalkboard and I'm pretty proud of myself :])

Fourth Of July

The 4th of July is probably one of my favorite holidays. It feels like the kick off to summer! I love seeing flags waving everywhere, patriotic songs getting stuck in my head and everywhere I look seeing red, white and blue! The whole day feels like one big celebration! BBQs, swimming, food, parades, family, friends and of course FIREWORKS! 

A few months ago Josh and I requested to have the 4th off of work, with the intention of making plans to do something super fun!! Well... being the procrastinators that we sometimes are, we didn't make plans. 

I  knew I wanted to go to the balloon launch in Provo and the Freedom Festival parade. But during the day and evening, no plans.

Josh's parents ward does this big neighborhood thing they call the "Cul-De-Sac of FIRE". Everyone in the ward comes with food and fireworks. Even though I feel like I hardly know anyone. It's fun to just sit and watch the kids playing with pop-its and sparker, watching everyone set off their fireworks and later when it got darker, watching the BIG fireworks. Which were pretty dang impressive! (I didn't bring my camera and my phone was about dead so I didn't take too many pics)  So we did that Wednesday night and had a good ol' time!

Pop-its everywhere!

Thursday we work up early to crazy wind! So we skipped the balloons :( and met up with our friends Cole, Kellen and Lizzie at the parade. 

After the parade we walked a million miles back to our car, went home and took a little power nap before meeting back up with the Collards for lunch. After lunch Josh and I went and saw World War Z. Pretty good movie if you ask me. Josh wasn't too impressed. 

Later in the evening we went back down to provo to check out more of the freedom festival. Not that impressed, but it was fun people watching. And I got a funnel cake so I was satisfied! 

It was a good day! It was nice to have a day off with my wonderful husband!

How Embarrassing!

10/30 : Most Embarrassing Moment

This one was pretty easy...

Last year Josh and I were invited to go up to Island Lake in Idaho with my Uncle Rene and his family. (I blogged about it here.) This is an annual thing for them and they have a blast so we were pretty stoked. Not only were the Olivas' there but My Aunt Tricie, her whole family and my Grandparents! 

It had been years since I'd done any fun lake activities like tubing, wake boarding and riding jet skis. So I was pretty excited! Our first day on the lake everyone was eager for their turn on the tube! After a few people went, my cousin Alicia (Leesh) and I hopped on ready to ride! Now, I don't know why but I always seem to get a little nervous about these kind of things.. (like the banana boat incident..). We were screaming, laughing, our entire bodies were bouncing off the tube. Having SO much fun! We'd been riding for a while now around the lake and my arms were starting to burn from holding myself on... when all of a sudden... we took a sharp turn and I couldn't hold on any longer! I FLEW off the tube face first into the water! When my face reached the surface I immediately noticed my swimsuit bottoms dangling around my ankles! They came around on the jet ski to get me and the first thing I hear is Leesh laughing hysterically! I pulled up my bottoms and yelled "DID YOU SEE MY BUTT!?"

Yes... yes she did.... memories made for sure.

Oh how I've been slacking..

Remember the 30 day blog thing? Yeah I've been slacking...

9/30 : People who have influenced you
(I'm suppose to write about 10 people...)

- My parents obviously. They have been the best examples, not only to me but the rest of the family. You can read more about their awesome selves on this post

- My in-laws, Ronelle & Phil. These two are super motivated and super loving. In the short time that I have known them I have grown to love them and look up to them like they are my own parents! 

- Lissa. She's my younger sister but she's the one person I look up to! She's the most honest, friendly, funny, lovable, spiritual person I know! I could go on and on about how amazing she is! She's been by best friend since birth and I love her to death!

There really are a lot more people who have influenced my life. But for the sake of finally getting this post finished and on to the next one, I'm settling with 3 people.

In other news tomorrow is the FOURTH OF JULY!! Josh and I requested this day off months ago in hopes that we would actually plan to do something fun... aaaand we didn't. We are going to the balloon launch and parade in Provo tomorrow morning. But the rest of the day.... no plans.

Here is a little festive patriotic poster I designed today.
