Life List

So my friend Martha inspired me to write a "Life List" it is the same thing as a bucket list, just 100 things that I want to do in my LIFE. So far I have 62 things written down and I'm coming up with new things everyday. (I have my list displayed on the left side bar to show my progress)

When I started I told Craig about it and he is writing a list too...and then we have one combined list of things to do together. Craig had a GREAT idea that every birthday we should cross of at least one item off our list. I am so excited to do that now to pick what we will do for my birthday coming up in September...hmmm.

I want to encourage anyone else out there to create a Life List because it really helps center you on your goals and ambitions...and what you TRULY wish to accomplish in this short life we have.

The month of May has been FULL of FUN TIMES! We started the month with a BLOCK PARTY. It was a GREAT way to get to know our neighbors. Then Hunter and I took a two week Mommy and Me SWIM LESSON class. It was so much fun, and one of my friends and her son were in the class too. Hunter really enjoys the water and is an AWESOME kicker.
I had my first OFFICIAL Mothers Day which was amazing, we had our friends Josh and Melody (friends from college) were visiting and Craig and Josh made strawberry pancakes for breakfast. Then at church 2nd and 3rd hour all the women got to meet together and we had lunch, chatted, and had a spiritual message. It was so fun! After church we went down to the beach ... it was a great day.
I had my first Scentsy party, which was so fun (check me out at
Craig and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary on the 13th! Aunt Donna was coming out for the weekend and flew in on our anniversary so she was nice enough to watch Hunter while Craig and I went to Dave and Buster's for dinner and FUN games.
We then had a SUPER FUN time with Donna. We went shopping, got pedicures, went to the park/lake, and went out to was just so much fun hanging out with her.
Hunter got his first BUZZ CUT. We just did it at home with our clippers. I was sad...but it looks good and is even now.
We have had LOTS of fun times with our new friends here in Irvine. We have had friends over for dinner, gone to the Lagoon, watched the Lakers game, gone to the beach, and just hung out. We love it is DEFINITELY home!!!
Craig and I took Hunter to his FIRST Baseball game...he did good the whole time. He cheered, watched the players, and the jumbo screen, he even like the fireworks afterwards.
Craig and I went with Josh and Melody to go see The Lion King...and it was AMAZING...LOVED it.
It has DEFINITELY been a GREAT month.

So we have MOVED and we are now snuggled up in our home enjoying the rain. We moved to our new house on Friday....well actually we drove here late Thursday night and slept on small mattresses and unloaded the refrigerator from the truck at 130 in the MORNING! Then we had some people from the Elders Quorum coming around 5pm on Friday so durring the day we got some smaller things accomplished. Then when the Elders came the 26' moving truck was quickly unloaded and everything was inside our house. Luckily I planned ahead and had the rooms labeled so I was able to direct traffic and get all the boxes in the right rooms. Saturday morning before we had to return the moving truck we went to Costco to pick up some needed furniture. We bought a new Cal-King bed for us (it is our Christmas present to ourselves), a new entertainment center for our TV and a new couch for our back living room (aka projector room).

Then right when Craig and Brent were on their way to drop off the moving truck my parents arrived to help us unpack our home. So FIRST things FIRST I gave them the royal tour of the house, and then off to work! AMAZINGLY with the help of my parents, Brent, Craig and myself we were able to get basically the ENTIRE house unpacked and put together!!! We even got all our family pictures up on the just 2 short days). Honestly the only thing left to unpack is 3 boxes of books, a box in the office, and our DVDs (which don't have a new home yet so they will stay in the bin anyway). There are still some things that need to be organized a little better but everything is put away already...I cannot even believe it.

Thank you so much Mom and Dad for coming to help unpack and entertain Hunter. It was definitely a successful weekend.

I will take some pictures and post them today.
