Camp Vignettes: Episode I

The first time I talked to my friend Christa after she returned from her mission, she mentioned she’s going to our old Girl’s Camp as a leader this August. Instant nostalgia. We were the queens of Girl’s Camp. She and I went every year together (two as Youth Camp Leaders, aka YCLs) and those were […]

my lot in life

Last night, when we finally made it home safely from Darcy and Lianna’s, I collapsed on the couch and demanded a foot massage from Jon. I deserved it, after what I’d been through. He obliged (though he made me put socks on first).I spent the day at their house because Jon was pulling another all-day […]

hope you’re sitting down

Oh gosh. I can't believe I'm even posting this. I probably shouldn't. But I have to. Lianna and I were perfecting our ugliest faces the other day, and I pretty much nailed it - the ugliest picture OF ALL TIME. Nothing will ever top it. EVERRRRRRRR.It's no exaggeration to say that it is so disturbingly […]

spare me

Here’s another apology for the lack of content lately. I don’t know what my deal is. Writer’s block. Or maybe it has more to do with my uninteresting life and my broken camera. For what it’s worth, here’s an update.My favorite part of the entire past two weeks was when my friend Christa (now home […]

the opposite of ‘couth’

1)  I DID THE WORST THING EVER YESTERDAY.  It was morning, we were at the beach, Jon took a picture.  So he goes to hand the camera back to me... I had it in my grip - butterfingers - and it landed, LENS OPEN, face-down in the sand.  So basically it's ruined forever.  I have […]

Happenings

Well maybe the best news of all - there's a NEW STORE. And not just any store - a store on our side of town. Hallelujah!!! Up until now, whenever we needed anything, be it toilet paper or ultrapasteurized shelf milk, we had to hike down to the town center and hit up the World's […]

redo

Sorry for the haphazard post yesterday. I was short on time and internet bandwidth, so I compressed the video as small as I could and included little to no commentary. So let's try it again. This version should be better quality (I hope) so you can actually see what's happening.This happened right outside of Darcy […]

1) A week of firsts! To begin, there are these creatures here called ‘land crabs’. They’re CRABS that live on the LAND, which I don’t really agree with. And they’re enormous. We’d never seen a live one, then all of a sudden there were TWO, on the side of the road, on our way home […]

me needy you

So my mom got a new horse, which means it needs a name, which means I've been thinking of horse names nonstop the past week. Naming things is my one true joy in life. Anyway, we've come up with the following top choices - please vote for your favorite: (oh gosh I hope this poll […]

they’re gross and I hate them

One of the major trepidations I had about moving to the Caribbean was BUGS, and having now lived here for 8 months I can say it was definitely a legitimate concern. Granted, we don’t have it as bad as some, but we’ve had our share of spiders (various sizes) and cockroaches (always HUGE) in the […]

They’re heeeeere!

Omg, it's been like a year. With Jon on break, plus the arrival of his brother and family (!!!), we've been off our routine. Here are some pictures to catch you up to speed.We found this gem on the bulletin board at the airport while waiting for Darcy and Lianna's plane to get in:Their plane!Surprise […]

A1A Beachfront Avenue, just kidding just kidding

So the day everyone else left for home, Corinne, Kyle and I headed down to Ft Lauderdale. Ada tagged along, too. Jon had wanted me gone until he finished his finals, and Corinne and Kyle wanted a beach vacation, and their friend's parents have a condo there, so it was the perfect thing.The place was […]

Disney World Picture Overload

Okay. Disney World. In two words: AWESOME and exhausting. I ate good food. I rode rides. I laughed until it hurt. I bombed many a photo. It was nonstop action from 7 in the morning until midnight each night, and I feel like I’m still trying to unwind and catch up on sleep (though it […]

NAMES 2009!

Welcome to the third annual BABY NAMES spectacular. The newspaper insert was waiting for me when I came home from Disney World. It had a longer way to come this year than previously. Having parents that live in Southeastern Idaho is fun! Special thanks to my mom for mailing it, and to the Rexburg Standard […]

bad dog

I leave tomorrow for Disney World! I’m not planning on doing any posting while there, except for maybe to my Twitter feed. I was hoping to get the Madison Memorial Hospital baby names newspaper insert before I left but that didn’t happen, so it’ll have to wait until I get back. Don’t miss me too […]

Aloha oy-vey

To celebrate the countdown to Disney World (4 days!!!), I thought I’d let you all take a glimpse into a past Sweet Family vacation. To Hawaii. I was 15, Annie was 17, and Corinne was 19. Or something like that. It was ill-fated, to say the least. So ill-fated that on the first try, we […]

…and then I almost lost bowel control.

We celebrated Easter by attending mass at the Catholic church (don’t look at me like that. We obviously don’t get General Conference on TV here, and we don’t have internet, and even if we DID have internet it wouldn’t be fast enough to stream it anyway). It was our first mass ever. I’m sure I […]
