So, we were sure we were having a boy, so we had the perfect name picked out! Then... we found out the truth. Don't get me wrong - we're THRILLED to the brim about our new little friend. But, we can't agree on a name. (Sound familiar Jess and Gavin?) All I know is these are the names I will NOT name my daughter:

Online baby name sites are SO bizarre. Any ideas that you like?

XX or XY?

Here's a little pic of me, my pregnant belly, and my assistant at school, Syd.

My ultrasound was yesterday to find out the gender of our little jelly bean. We decided (thanks to Gavin!) that we would have the nurse write it in an envelope so we could open it on Christmas. Unfortunately our baby is already a little stinker and just wiggled and wiggled the entire time. The nurse was super surprised because we couldn't even get "it" to hold still long enough to get a profile shot or look at the heart.

So after an HOUR of poking and prodding the little one to "open up" and hold still, she figured out the gender and handed it over to us! Now we have it in an envelope just BEGGING us to peek. This is the hardest thing we have done in a long time, but it's sure going to make Christmas morning exciting!

What do you think it is? :) We'll keep ya posted!

I Love Christmas!

I have been really excited to finally have our own home to decorate for the holidays. So, I don't know if I went a little overboard, but it's definitely festive! Here are some pics of our decor - some tacky, some fun. You have to have a little of both at Christmas!

Our lovely tree...

The Nativity scene - can you find the baby Jesus?
Garland on our banister... look closely and you can see me in my cute pink pajamas!
These funny letters Katie and I made at an Enrichment activity - a little tacky, a little funky
The beautiful wreath my mom made me for Christmas - she's so talented!
My attempt at sewing pillow covers. They probably won't make it to next year!
Even Jovi was feelin' the Christmas spirit. We bought this as a joke, then just put it on randomly to calm her down. She HATES it! (I don't blame her!)

Our gingerbread house... it was much cuter before we got to it!

I think there must be a secret memo out there that says teachers love snowmen. All these snowman things are a little tacky for me, but they remind me of the cuties that gave them to me so I just smile. Luckily Jon is supportive of my habit. :)
Merry Christmas!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it ... STOP!

I'm going to come right out and say that I have a love/hate relationship with winter. I love sitting in a warm house, sipping hot chocolate and watching the flakes fall gracefully down and covering the world in a pure, blissful blanket of sparkling white.

THAT IS A FANTASY - most of the time. I HATE driving in it, scraping it off my car, filling my boots with it on my way in to work, and attempting to teach while it is distracting my little ones.

This last week nearly sent me over the edge. As a teacher, I've learned to brace myself for the last week before Christmas break. I plan fun activities that don't require a lot of stress on my or the kids' part. We sing songs, we do art, we play games. That's how you get through the week of "insanity" when their brains fall out and all they can think about is PRESENTS!

But an entire week of WICKED snow storms added a new little twist to their craziness. The town where I teach is up on a mountain with no real development around it. So, not only does it snow, but the wind tears down the hill leaving frozen bodies and huge snow drifts in its path. So we didn't send the kids out for one recess break in the entire week. Not one. I love my students, but I also need a break. I feel exactly like the poor animal at the top of this post.

Help... help... help...

Luckily, we made it through and I have TWO WEEKS OFF!!! Just enough time to find my sanity.

Hi. I'm Bonnie.

If there is ANYONE still reading this blog... thanks for your diligence. And I'm sorry. It's been OVER A MONTH since we've posted. And I honestly can't remember much from that last month because I fall asleep at the drop of a hat and that seems to take some time away from social things... like blogging! (But I don't feel so bad. My sister hasn't been so consistent either. Must be hereditary!)

So, here are some things we've neglected to mention:
-We went to New York a while back and had a blast. It was probably our last big trip for a while, so we sure did live it up! (A post will follow about that when I get MORE time!)
-Jon put up our Christmas lights and did a fantabulous job! (see above)
-I decorated the inside of the house for the holidays, and I think it's pretty darn cute for my first time ever!

-And pretty much everything else is the same!

I just have to say that I am constantly amazed by the talented, amazing, kind, generous people that fill our lives with joy. Thank you for being you.

Happy Birthday Johnny Boy!

Today my bestest friend, love, and partner in crime is turning 27! We have had 3 of his birthdays together so far, and each one has been an adventure!
-2006 - We had been dating for a month and I met his family (grandparents included!) for the first time at his birthday dinner. Woo hoo! (It must have gone well because we were married like 5 minutes later!)
-2007 - We were LIVING with his parents and made a very necessary escape to Park City for the weekend. It was so much fun - we pretended it was our honeymoon again ... and had a blast telling everyone we were honeymooners. :) It doesn't matter what we do, what kind of trouble we get into, how many jokes we play or shops I drag him to, I love being with Jon.
-So this year ... I was planning on doing something fabulous and surprising him with a great ... something. But these days I work, eat dinner, and fall asleep by 7:30 or 8:00. So I'm a lame wife this time around. So, we're going to the temple, then meeting up with Caity, Bob, Jessica and maybe even Brenda for lunch and a movie. It will be wonderful to just hang out with friends ... and James Bond!
Things I love about Jon:
-his smile
-his cute pokey-up hair
-how amazing he is with computers/tvs/phones/and anything that beeps, buzzes, or lights up.
-the way he looks at me
-the butterflies I feel when he pops into my classroom or comes home early and surprises me.
-how particular he is with clothes - and shopping. He knows what he wants and he either finds it or he doesn't and he's done in minutes.
-watching him play with Jovi and laugh and wrestle - like two little kids.
-I love that he stands up for himself ... and me. If something isn't right, he doesn't quit until it is. He's taught me a lot about being assertive and not letting people get away with crap. :)
-I love how he's easy-going and goes with the flow. He puts up with a lot of my crazy ideas and plans because ... well, because he's so sweet.
-he is the BEST listener. Whether it's work stress, a funny story, or I just need to vent, Jon always seems to know when to "just listen" or "listen and fix it". That's a rare skill in the "man world"!
-Jon is an INCREDIBLE cook. Especially lately since I don't cook. :) He is a master barbecue-er and makes KILLER creme brulee. Oh yum. I want some right now!
-I love that he's mine. Forever. I am sooooo lucky.

Happy birthday honey!

big news is an understatement

So, I'm pregnant! We found out over two months ago and I've had the hardest time keeping it quiet ... but now it's official! I wanted to tell everyone in person, but with everything that's going on, I just can't wait any longer. Maybe this post will facilitate some more of those phone calls and visits! We love you all and we are proud to introduce you to our new little JELLY BEAN. He or she will join our family May 27 - ish. We can't wait!

nothing to blog about

I love blogging ... or at least reading everyone else's blogs. It's pretty sad that I haven't updated for 2 weeks. So I just wanted to say hi. Here's my life lately:
-wake up with only enough time to shower, eat, and run to school
-teach the young minds of America for the quickest 8 hours of my life
-run around like crazy getting ready for the next super-speedy day
-go to the gym (or mow the lawn and walk the dog like tonight)
-watch some TV (my vices: The Office, Ugly Betty, The Biggest Loser, CSI: any of them, Law and Order ... and (so sad) Lipstick Jungle)
-crash on the couch
-Jon comes home from work, wakes me up, and we go to bed.

What a life.

At least last weekend we got to visit my cute sisters (oh and Ty!) in Logan. It was a beautiful, relaxing, super-fun break in the monotony. We even got to go to Smith and Edwards TWICE (thanks Candace) and now I never have to go again! Thanks girls for hanging out with us!

Saturday, September 27, 2008


A couple of days ago I met my friend Emily for our weekly walk at the park, which in and of itself is a little piece of heaven in my life. But for once she was the one running late and I was the one waiting for her! (Sorry Em, I'm working on it!) :) Usually my life is so crazy busy that I get stressed when I have a delay or change because there are a million other things rolling around in my head.
But this particular afternoon was absolutely perfect - warm sun (mid 70s at least), calm breeze, fresh grass, and mountains to gaze at forever. I took advantage of the 15 minutes of solitude to lay on the grass like a homeless person and just ponder ... nothing. It felt so nice to just be ... be ... well, just be! I realized I hardly EVER have a minute just for me, it's either co-workers or third graders or family or friends or husband or dog needing me. Don't get me wrong - I love my life and everyone in it. But I've been neglecting my need for quiet! So it was a cherished moment of calm that helped me get on with my life. (And gosh, I don't even have kids yet ...)

Thanks Emily for your amazing friendship. If it weren't for you I'd never enjoy the nature on the Jordan Parkway Trail or laugh my guts out at least once a week!

Jovi and Recycling

So, we all know that recycling is a good thing. It's even better to buy things with less packaging/use re-fillable water bottles instead of buying a new one every time/reduce our consumption. I definitely believe in that. That's why Sigg is my new best friend. I love her. Anyway ... that's not the point. Today we went to Sam's Club, the king of oversized everything (or maybe the queen next to Costco) and I was feeling very guilty about buying razor blade heads in a package that could have housed a family in a third-world country.

But Jovi helped me feel a little better because once I opened it up and emptied out the dangerous contents, she played with the box like it was the best toy ever! It reminded me that she also LOVES to play with empty water bottles. So, if you're ever feeling guilty for consuming more plastic material that you should, just bring it over to us and Jovi will re-use it for you!

Sunday, September 14, 2008

true love

Dear Sigg,
I love you so much. You're always there when I need you. Sorry I dropped you on your pretty little head and dented you already. Please be mine always!

Love your thirsty friend,

Saturday, September 13, 2008

You're welcome.


Washing the laundry so we have something to wear tomorrow: good.
Washing the husband's phone in his pants pocket: bad.

So, whose fault is it??

Thursday, September 11, 2008


So I was driving home from work, minding my own business, when something caught my eye. I glanced up and noticed I had a passenger. A HUGE grasshopper was clinging to the fabric on the roof of my car. Oh my gosh... I screamed so loud that I'm sure the folks in the cars around me thought I was possessed.

One guy looked over as I was staring at my ceiling while driving 60 mph on Bangerter Highway. He gave me a look like, "What are you doing?" then promptly sped up and cut me off. Nice.

I was about 5 blocks from home when I saw my new friend, so I had to keep a watchful eye on him so he wouldn't jump on me before I could run out of the car. Luckily he crawled (upside down) to the back of the car by the back window. Phew. But, suddenly, I looked back and he'd disappeared. AHHHHH! I frantically looked on the seats, the floor, the back of the car (don't worry I was at a red light) but he was nowhere to be found. So I turned into my neighborhood and onto my street and WHAM the grasshopper had jumped to right by my shoulder. I screamed and swerved and leaned away ... all in front of my new neighbor who was watering his lawn. Welcome to the crazy neighborhood!

At least Jovi was happy to see my new friend ... for about 5 seconds. Then... yum!

Questions, questions...

So, all summer I would laugh to myself when people would say, "Oh, you're a teacher? So, what do you DO all summer?" They act like it's a big, long vacation... maybe you're guilty of the same train of thought. Well, I must admit, it is nice... but it's not like I sit around on my duff and eat bon-bons... all the time!
I thought I'd share with you some of my "summer accomplishments" so I can relish in the joy of summer for at least one more day! So... from the middle of June until last week, I:
-Watched ALL four seasons of LOST and now consider myself addicted
-Read all of the Twilight series books (working on the last one currently) and also consider myself an addict.
-Re-painted and "upholstered" two chairs I found on the side of the road.
-Laid sprinklers with Jon
-Laid sod with Jon
-Built a fence ... with Jon
-Poured cement .... again with Jon!
-Landscaped our front and back yards - Awesome!
-Got a dog
-Taught the dog to sit, lay down, pee outside, and fetch.
-Screamed and cried when the dog de-landscaped the back yard!
-Took the dog to the doggie E.R. when she tried to commit suicide out the back of the truck. (She's now fine ... just has a bit of a gimpy leg ... she'll grow out if it I hope!)
-Took lots of walks with Jovi
-Went on a cruise with my bestest friend Amelia
-Played in St. George with family on the 4th of July
-Went to Texas for a week of training with a bunch of crazy teachers!
-Began re-upholstering a chair I got at a garage sale for $10 (post to follow when it is finished)
-Helped my sister get married and attended the festivities- it was so amazing! (I even helped design the invitation and take the engagement pics ... so much fun for me!)
-Spent well-earned time with friends I never get to see and laughed a whole lot!
-Started my at-home business making baby shoes and purses (
-Thoroughly enjoyed the Olympics ... I'm not a sports-watcher, but I sure love them in China!
-Found my first official gray hair. Ugh.
-Put a classroom together from SCRATCH in a matter of days (it's a work in progress).
-Planned my first year teaching 3rd grade and trained 3 brand-new teachers how to do the same.
-Met some great new friends in my neighborhood - We truly love where we live!
And, best of all, Jon and I got to spend nearly every day together. Since we work at the same school, we had a nice, long Summer vacation - and we didn't get too sick of each other!

Yay for being a teacher!

Why I Am Not A Fan of Fall...

I'm in denial

So long sweet summer
I stumbled upon you and gratefully basked in your rays
So long sweet summer
I fell into you now you're gracefully falling away

Date Night Gone... Wrong?

Do you ever have a day that just doesn't seem to turn out right?? Ugh. We do.

Every Friday Jon and I try to do something specifically together, sort of like a ... date, I guess. Since we spend like EVERY day together on summer break, it's funny that we make such a big deal of our date night. Last week we made plans for tonight to go to the canyons and have tin foil dinners. I got super excited and made yummy food. We even packed up and got on the road early so that we'd have time to cook the dinner and play in the mountains for a while.
Then reality set in. We live FOREVER away from the canyons now. When we finally got to the mouth of the canyon, it was closed for construction. After finding an alternate route, every campsite was either full or a watershed, so no dogs allowed. (Dang that dog.) So we drove to Big Cottonwood Canyon ... but on the way Jon decided that it was probably going to be the same story. So we drove to Flat Iron Mesa Park to cook our food on a grill... it was all full too! So we found a fire pit at Draper Park, built a fire, and ate dinner around 8:30 p.m. THEN the sprinklers nearby came on, forcing us to rush through our meal and get outta there before we got wet.
So date night was a little less than ... romantic. But the food was good and we laughed a little. Even better news though, is that when we got home I logged in to my crazy blog and VOILA!!! My blog spottings are back. A day can't be all bad, right?

I love my friends...

I have a group of friends that is a very unique, hilarious, sometimes bizarre group of people. We met nearly ten years ago at Ricks College when we were studying Print Journalism (or just working for the paper). We're called "Scrollies" because the paper we all slaved away at was called "The Scroll".
Anyway, it's pretty amazing that we became friends then because the only thing we had in common was the paper. It's even more incredible that ten years later we still get together and laugh our heads off. Here's a pic of four of us who got together for dinner at my house. (Me, Hil, Ashlee, Taralyn, and Baby Lily the future Scrollie of America).

I love you girls! You make my life richer, funnier, and all-around better. Hil, we'll miss you much. But now we'll have a chance to see you in Texas!

Holy $&%^$%*&$

Ahhhh! Help help help! I was just playing with a few things on my blog, but because it's WAY past my bedtime, I just erased everything. The cute layout and header that cute friend Mindy did are gone. And so are my "Blog Spottings". What can I do to get them back? Anything? Well, I guess if you want to be on my blog list, leave a comment so I can remember what you blog name is. Man, this is what I get for not going to bed. Grrrr....

Crazy Summer

Hey Y'all! I have been super busy with traveling and meetings for the upcoming school year. But I wanted to blog a bit about my fabulous trips, one of which took me to the far reaches of ... Texas.

About 4 years ago I was completely ready to move to Houston, Texas to (according to my five-year plan) do my student teaching, get a lucrative teaching job, meet a cowboy, and settle down to make cute little babies with accents. Then a crash with a semi truck changed that life plan in an instant. I'm glad it did because Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc down yonder. Oh, and I met Jon and now we're very happy. Anyway, all those memories came back to me late last month.

My school sent seven of us teachers to Austin to be trained on what I am convinced will change the face of education as we know it. I absolutely ate up all the information they shot at us with a firehose. Whoa... my head is still spinning. To counteract the effects of so much information, we "Utahns" had some fun in downtown Austin when we got a chance. My camera died (see the next post) so I didn't get many pictures. They're still coming from my friend Daphne. But I wanted to tell you some fabulous things I discovered there:
1-Everyone is SUPER nice in Texas.
2-Just because they call you ma'am doesn't mean they think you look old. Everyone is ma'am.
3-The weather is absolutely insane. We were battling the inland effects of a hurricane, so I understand it was crazier than normal, but I now know where the phrase "raining cats and dogs" came from. WHOO-EEE!
4-Even when it's not raining in Texas, you feel like you're swimming in the air. It's SO thick. But it did wonders for my skin. (Why do we live in a desert, again??)
5- Sixth Street is the place that absolutely EVERYONE there said to visit. But we forgot to add that we're Mormon and don't drink. It was a street of bars and drugstores. And the occasional museum. Very odd... very NOT us.
6- "Mornin'" is a usual greeting from everyone. Even in the afternoon. Hmmm...
7-I was a nerdy tourist and bought a cowboy hat. I didn't realize it until the last day we were there, but I was the ONLY person I saw the entire time actually wearing one. :(
8 - Tump is a word in Texas. As in: "I tumped yer drink over." So is fixin' and all y'all. And yonder. Good words.
9 - Even at a fast food restaurant they clear the tables for you. And they ask if you want another "coke" even though you didn't actually order "Coke".

10 - Hands down, our favorite place was Rudy's - a BBQ joint run out of a barn. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Now I know what real Creamed Corn is. Oh... delicious. It was a hilarious place with amazing ambience. If you go to Austin, go to Rudy's. Or go there now.

OH MY... I just saw that they opened in New Mexico, too. Road trip anyone?? I'm serious.

Mexican Mamas

This is a little bit late, but it's summer, man! Blogs don't hold me down! My best friend Amelia and her sweet mom Nance paid for me and our friend Linda to join them on a cruise to Catalina Island and Ensenada, Mexico. It was the ultimate girls' week - we partied hard-core! Actually, we were all enjoying our vacation that we didn't do much more than relax and shop - but what more does a girl really need? I have postponed blogging about this one because my camera died so I can't get the pics off of it yet. And I'm pretty sure I left the charger on the cruise ship. So we're waiting for a new one to come from the eBay fairy. :)
For now I'll just post some pics from the Internet... but I swear we did go there! I absolutely love the ocean, so being surrounded by it for 5 days was just glorious. The weather was gorgeous; the company was even more beautiful. We had so much fun just laughing, sunning ourselves, playing bingo, and eating the most food ever consumed in one week. But why not when you can order one of everything if you like? I loved every minute of it and I can't wait to go back!

The beautiful beach and waterfront shops at Catalina Island.

Catalina Island at night

One of the many vendors in Ensenada - We tried bartering but we're too nice! They love tourists like us, I'm sure.

Viva Mexico! This is the view of the Ensenada Port from our ship... awesome.

Summer Vacation

We had the chance to get away to lovely St. George for the 4th of July. Those of you who are from around here are probably thinking, "WHY would you go from hot to BLAZING hot?" We wondered that as well. But we braved the insane weather and even more insane gas prices to be with our family. It was so fun. We even took Jovi with us, and she was such a good puppy!

Our family rents out an old pioneer house in Historic St. George for a few days every summer. Don't worry, it's been renovated and has a sweet pool and tennis court, so we had everything we needed right there! Plus St. George had a killer fireworks show for the 4th and we made the once-a-year stop at the Zion Outlets (love them). It was a relaxing weekend full of swimming, tennis, sun, hiking in Snow Canyon and cousins. Yay for family reunions! Here are a few pictures:

Candace, Sarah, Connie, Me and Jovi in Snow Canyon
My twin, Katie, getting ready to play Fear Factor and eat sardines or something. Ew.Milo wasn't so sure about playing Fear Factor - stinky fish!
Jovi doesn't love water yet, and I'm pretty sure we scarred her for life by throwing her in a few times.
The preppy and the puppy.
Staci doing a mean trick on the water skateboard.
Jon is training for the summer Olympics 2012. Uh... perfect ... 10?!
Saige being brave and jumping to Heather - Yahoo!
Family fun in the pool: Connie, Mom, Dad, and Katie.
Ahh... this is the life!

So, where did you go (or where will you go) for Summer Vacation?

Caity is so nice...

I don't consider myself a very good blogger, mainly because I forget to post things. But I have fun and my cute friend Caity honored me with a Blog award called the Arte y Pico. (Click here for their blog.) It is to honor people for their creativity and contributions to the blogging world. I looked at other recipients and I KNOW I don't belong among them! But thanks, Caity, for thinking of me. This award inspires me to do better!

I remember when blogs were mainly people with political or otherwise serious things to say. They were very opinionated and informative. I always admired those people who took a stand to voice their views to anyone who would read. That's probably why I was so nervous to start my own blog because I didn't feel like I had anything really worthwhile to write. But it seems there has been a "revolution" of sorts where blogs have become online journals or scrapbooks. I think both types of blogs have a place in this blog-world, and I'm so glad to have so many to read. Both are great reads and they keep me balanced between fun and fluffy and informative. So I am supposed to choose 5 blogs to nominate. Here they are (in no particular order):

1. Brian Passey - Brian would probably think he doesn't need this award because he is above simple recognition like this! He is one of the first bloggers I ever knew. His blogs are filled with incredible writing, opinion, reviews, etc. I love stopping by to fill my head with all of his amazing creativity and talent. It makes me feel a little bit more connected to my intellectual side!

2. Molly Aufdermauer - Molly is my hero. She lives my dream life (honestly!) and I live vicariously through her as I read her posts. :) She posts frequently, which I love, about her fun life in California. She makes me laugh so hard. I miss you Molly!

3. Julie Blair (Jooly) - Jules is very honest and hilarious in her posts. Since I can't see her very often in real life, I love to stop by her blog for a laugh or a cry. And you can't miss the scorpion count on her blog. CHECK IT OUT! Her sincerity and wit will keep you coming back. :)

4. Heather Smith - I'm a little biased on this one because she's my sister. But I love how she keeps us all up on her life as an amazing mommy. She's so fun and creative and I am pretty darn sure she has the cutest kids in all of existence. Her stories keep me entertained at all hours of the night!

5. Mel and Justin McMurtrey - Okay, I miss these guys. They moved to the middle of outerspace I think... it's far enough away! I like to keep up on their lives through cyberspace. And I'm nominating them especially for their design. Their blog is a .mac blog (bonus!) and it has great photo galleries and a weight loss challenge countdown. Someday I'll have a blog as cool as theirs. (I'm also giving them this award so they'll actually POST again... come on guys, I know you're on vacation, but throw me a bone already!)

Caity, thanks again for the award. I'll live every day in honor of such recognition! :)

"rules" Choose 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also contribute to the blogging community. 2. Each award has to have the name of the author and a link to his/her blog. 3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name of and link to the blog that presented her/him with the award. 4. The award winner and the one who has given the prize has to show the link of Arte Y Pico blog so everyone will know the origin of this award. 5. Show these rules.

My New Favorite Sport

So, I didn't even know what a Wii was until probably a couple of months ago. But now, I can say, I found a "sport" that I ROCK at! Wii boxing brought out my crazy competitive side and I absolutely loved it. Sorry to everyone whose trash I kicked. I may have gotten a little enthusiastic about my victories. (Hence the edited photo above... clothes don't hold me down!) Oh, and happy birthday Jess, your party rocked! Thanks to Caity, Bob, Jess, Gavin, Eric and Jon for a fabulous weekend.

See Caity's Page for more action-packed Wii boxing pics.

p.s. - Jon, next time I'll let you win just 'cuz you're cute. :)
