Yesterday morning we discovered that our telephone wire was pulled down from the power lines coming up our driveway. There is new home construction going on behind our house, so we are guessing that one of those big construction trucks mistakenly tried to drive up our driveway and took our telephone wire out. What a pain!!! Especially since I rely on my dsl internet connection for work.

Luckily my sister let me use her house and internet connection so I could work. So I was at my sister's for most of the day and it was a nice change of scenery. Although, every time I looked out the back window and saw the sparkling pool and bright sunny day, it really made me want to go swimming instead!

I'm not really a cat person, but my little nephew's cat Tony is soooo sweet! He hung out with me most of the day, so I snapped a quick pic with my phone of him lounging around.

Hammock Days

We bought this hammock a couple of months ago and it is awesome! Here are some pics of us lounging.

John and his guitar he won in a raffle at work.

I had my camera with me on the hammock because I was trying to snap a picture of a woodpecker that kept flying back and forth over my head. Once I got my camera, of course he never came back.

John says I look uncomfortable here, but it was actually really relaxing!

Conversation about a Dream

Angie: I had a dream last night about "The Office." I was in one of the scenes and I was Pam.

John: Oh, I see, you like Jim.

Angie: Um, well maybe you were Jim in my dream . . .

John: I know I wasn't in your dream. When I dream of celebrities, you are never in those dreams.

Angie: Do you dream that you are in a scene from a movie or tv show and you are one of the characters, like I do?

John: No, I dream that it is real life and I'm just so cool, they all want to hang out with me.

Angie: You're weird!

John: No, you're weird!

I love music videos, but since MTV and VH1 only play reality shows now (and I don't have MTV Hits) I always have to search iTunes, YouTube, mySpace, etc to find music videos. So I though I would share a few:

Here is the video for the song on my playlist. I think it's pretty cool.
Kate Voegele - Only Fooling Myself

From my two favorite Matt's.
Mat Kearney - Undeniable
Matt Nathanson - All We Are We Are

Eye candy for the ladies.
Gavin Rossdale - Love Remains the Same

For all you Country Music/Dancing with the Stars fans.
Julianne Hough - That Song In My Head

Bowling Madness

A couple of years ago I started bowling on a league with some friends and co-workers. John bought me a bowling ball (hook ball, not sure the correct bowling lingo for that) and some bowling shoes. So whenever we went bowling just for fun, of course I brought my cool ball with me. John was so jealous of my hook ball, even though he still bowled better than me with just the ally balls! So when he said that he wanted to bowl on a league a couple of months ago, I knew it was just a ploy for him to get a hook ball! So we signed up on a league with our friend John, who is an awesome bowler. Of course he then proceeded to shop for a ball and bowling shoes. He got his ball and then searched for hours on the internet for some shoes. He finally ordered some and was so excited the day they were coming in the mail. Before he left for work he told me, "My shoes are coming today, don't mess with them!" Of course, as soon as they arrived, the loving and obedient wife that I am, I immediately took them out of the box and put them on. I then took the picture below with my phone and then emailed it to him. Needless to say, he was not thrilled to see me parading around in his shiny new bowling shoes!

Well, they got me for girls camp at the last minute this year. I had no idea this was coming. In fact, I remember thinking a couple of weeks ago how great it was that I didn't have to go to girls camp this year . . . ha! I took my old, small digital camera to camp and this is the only picture that turned out half way decent. They were all blurry!!! It really makes me appreciate my nice digital camera, but there was no way I was taking that to camp! This was the "Dancing with the Stars" night. Our ward did a dance to a Hairspray song, that is why we were dressed like that. So here is summing up the camp experience: hot, cool, humid, bottled water, hot, certification, hot, no sleep, bugs, spiders, hot, pranks, drama, gossip, hot, crafts, classes, food, testimonies, tears, games, dancing, hot, skits, laughter, and what I got when I left . . .sick!!! A cold that is, but I'm pretty much over it now. I did have fun at camp. It was fun hanging with the girls and the other leaders and getting all the gossip, mostly good gossip!

Blogging . . . Oh how I've missed you

Ok, It's been awhile since I have posted anything. I was getting ready for and attending YW Camp last week and then was sick all this weekend. I tried to get John to post something in my absence, but of course he didn't. LAME! I'll try to see if I have any good camp pictures to share and post more tomorrow.
