10 Things

I feel like I really haven't had much to blog about lately. We have been good and busy with birthdays, showers, and wedding shopping, but nothing really to document. And since I am sick of seeing my last post everytime I open my blog I decided copy my moms blog and do a 10 things that made me happy this last week.

1- I loved when we were all playing tickle monster this week. David was tickling Logan and in between tickles Logan yelled, "Seriously, I don't have time for this!"

2- I loved finding a really cute sweater to wear for my little brothers wedding for $4.50! Sears had a ton of clearance!

3- I loved going and finding a temple dress with my mom and sister. I have been married for 4 1/2 years yet this was my first time buying a temple dress. I can now go to any temple and don't have to worry about renting clothes.

4- I am so happy that I for the first time ever got a runners high on my run on Saturday and ran 2 1/2 miles and probably could have gone more. It might not seem like a long run to some people, but for me it was awesome and I can't wait to run a 5K on April 17!

5- I loved that Logan was so good all week. It gives me hope that these terrible two's might be ending soon.

6- I love and am so grateful that I have opportunities to do odds and ends jobs that make it so I can earn a little extra money for our family. Its so great that these little jobs are always things that I can take Logan with me.

7- I am happy I got to go to the Night for the Arts that my grandma put on downtown. Who would've thought I would actually enjoy opera. It was also so nice to go on a date with David that wasn't just dinner and a movie.

8- I am so happy that we had such wonderful weather for most of the week. We even went to the park for playdate and played outside several times. It makes me so excited for summer!

9- This was two weeks ago, but I bought Logan some toddler bedding at Target. The next week it was on sale. I was so bummed. My mom told me she would take the receipt in and they would give me the difference back. I could not and still can't figure out why they would do that. They are out money doing that. But she went in and did it for me and I got the difference back. It always makes me happy to save money!

10- I am so happy my husband has a job that makes it so I can stay home with Logan. He works so hard and I am so grateful for him!

I really am glad I could think of 10 things to be happy about (and I know I could think of more) when there is so much sadness in the world. Thanks for the inspiration mom!

We Waited a Long Time for These!

About 7 months ago we noticed water on our laundry room floor. David took a look at our washing machine and noticed there was a part with a crack in it. We ordered in the part and David got it fixed... for a few months. We decided since we couldn't figure out the problem we would just buy a new washing machine when we got our tax return. Starting at the end of January the leak was so bad we couldn't even use it. So when we got our tax return at the beginning of February we went to Home Depot and looked around. We had planned on not spending a lot, but found an amazing deal we couldn't give up. Our washing machine and dryer were originally $800 each, but I guess Home Depot ordered too many so they were selling them for $500 each. Plus we got $150 back from Questar and Rocky Mountain Power. Which would make them $425 each. It was supposed to be delivered the next Friday. On Monday we recieved a call saying the washing machine and dryer were on back order until March 9th. A whole month later. We were not happy since we hadn't had a washing machine in a couple weeks. David decided to call and see if they could do anything to make this up to us and she said they would take 10% off. That made these wonderful #1 consumer rated washer and dryer $375 each plus tax. I am in love with them. Even though David has been so wonderful and has done all the laundry since we got them on Tuesday!
