It's Been WAY too LONG

Oh my gosh . . . seriously. It's the last day of May and it's been since Easters that I've posted. Oh my, that's terrible. But I haven't had too much to blahg about but I've let everything pile up that I have quite a few things to report on.

First, we'll start with what I'm most excited about. After 4 1/2 years of living in my home and never having my front patch of yard get landscaped as promised from my HOA I decided to exhibit an infamous womanly quality . . . taking matters into my own hands. Take charge no matter what others think. I told Jared what I was going to do and asked what my budget was. So with $100 and the assistance of my father we went to work one Saturday afternoon. The before and after pics are below. I'm pretty dang proud of it.

Every Memorial Day, Jared and I drive up to Malad, ID to put flowers on the Evans' graves. His grandparents and brother are buried there. We always get together for a luncheon with the other relatives that come. 

Sarah is coming the end of June and I'm SO excited to see her, Mark, Ellie and the new baby Max.

Lastly, it's back to Vegas for me. J and I will be heading there on the 17th of June for the rest of the week. His parents were actually supposed to go but his mom has to have knee surgery again and they can't make the meetings. So Jared will be going to the meetings and I will be . . . ahhh lounging at a pool at the Bellagio and reading a book. I will go do some shopping too but since this is such short notice I'm not sure how much I'll have. 

Oh . . . Sabrina and I watched Masterpiece Theatre's Little Dorrit last month. We both love the guy that plays Arthur Clenam. He was the same guy that played Mr. Darcy in the Pride & Prejudice movie with Keira Knightly. He makes a great Darcy surprisingly. But anyway, once Little Dorrit comes out on DVD you should check your library and rent it. I was totally sucked into it.
