I have learned alot during this time, and my hubby and I have grown together in ways through helping each other out.
I am actually so proud of myself. I know that sounds puffed up, but I feel like I have been a good wife this week and deserve a pat on the back. I only say this cause most of the time I don't feel adequate or like I am doing enough, but this week, I am proud of myself.
I tried to take care of the secondary "minor" this week so Steve wouldn't have to worry about them. This inclulded; dry cleaning his suit, buying new socks and shoes...Making sure that he had his vitamin C, and daily meals. I also tried really hard to look up different sites on interviews so I could understand the process and maybe ask questions for him.
I worked very hard to be calm and for most of you who know me, this is not an easy feat. Inside my stomache was in knots and I was so fidgetty. I tried not to let my husband see this as I know he was nervous enough. The only way I ever can be calm is focusing on the right things.
We did alot of prayers this week. We actually made it to the temple. I made a poster, and got some treats to wish him luck.
As Steve walked out the door, he looked AMAZING. I was NOT worried at all. He feels really good about his interview. I knew he would do good. Still praying that it will all work out. We know it will work out how it suppose to in the end.

I cannot get enough of him. My husband is, in fact, the one that bought me his CD. I also am in love with Zach Ephron. Oh, to be a teenager again. My little sister WILL MARRY one of them, I am determined.
People have asked me why I haven't made any comments about Idol on my blog yet---well, Last year I dedicated an entire blog to the watching of AI. It took alot of work and alot of time, and yet didn't get alot of viewers. So, I just might say a few things here and there and leave it at that. However, my friend, RaeLynn has a blog about idol. Her and I almost think exactly the same on everything. So, you can check out her blog if you want a real opinion.

I love this word. I love how I feel when I hear her say it. Ms. Andy Bev has now learned how to abuse the word. She knows that both mom and dad are suckers when she uses it and will almost get anything she wants if she just uses the word, against our better judgement.
" Up UP....PWEES!" Chocolate is in front of her--"PWEES". " OK ok, but just cause you said please." Gotta love it

We went for dinner last night and ended up spending the night and then spending the day with them ( Hope we didn't overstay our welcome). I had an absolute blast with the entire family and enjoyed watching Eagle Eye.
Today, we spent HOURS playing CLUE...Not kidding--not sure how long....
There is a new version of clue out that gives you special abilities and is more interactive. Sherri found out that Steve and I had never seen the movie clue. So, after we played the game we watched the movie. I think the movie is better after just playing the game!! Thanks for the wonderful time. Oh, I forgot to mention that I won twice---yeah--Mr. Green in the Hall with the poison .!!!
So, we were BOTH called to be PRIMARY TEACHERS!!! We aren't sure what age group just yet, but I am very excited. That was the calling in our last ward and I had a hard time leaving it. Steve and I will have a blast team teaching together. I am looking forward to the challenges and blessings that come with this calling and am happy that they KNEW I can't do nursery right now....maybe when Andy is out of it....

I am so grateful for inspired teachers and the opportunity to follow the spirit. If it weren't for that vision, the church would not be on the earth today and I would not be who I am. I know it is true and that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God and helped restore the gospel to the earth.

I don't really know how to describe the feeling. There was lots of excitment to be home, be with my hubby, but the anxiety made me think that maybe we stayed a little too long. We are now home, trying to remember whatever routine we had going before and still recovering from the shock of it.
The good news is that is it a NEW YEAR and I love making goals at the New Year. Our family ( the PROBERTS) is in competition with the LAKE family (Sara's husband's family) for our own version of THE BIGGEST LOSER!!! I am not so much worried about that as I am about trying to get into shape and just be healthier all around.
I am happy to report that I feel I have made a valiant effort. I have taken less portion sizes, cut out the fat, eaten more salads and am trying to move more. Last week I lost three pounds and am on my way to losing 3 more. Today I set up our DDR workout session. I am excited and am going to try and do that every day for starters.
WISH ME LUCK!!!
