The Many Faces of BEN

This has been in the making for 6 months. I don't know how much of a description I can give other than, in October Ben said one day, "I am not going to shave my beard until April." So I said whatever. Because I could really careless what he does with his facial hair. So the other morning he said, "You better take a picture. Its time."
What he looked like the morning of 04.09.12

The new dew on 04.10.12



I left to church this morning with him looking like this.

When I met up with him at church, he looked like this.

It finally happened

I moved to Utah in August of 2004. When I had moved here it had been about a year since I was pulled over for anything. I have not had a speeding ticket since I was 19. So 9 years. I speed from time to time, but since I moved to Utah have never been pulled over. Yesterday at work was one of the worst days ever! I let all the little things get to me and called Ben crying at one point because I was just done. I had had it. So the day finally ended and I got to finally leave work. Well I was almost home and it happened. The red and blue lights starting flashing behind me. I thought to myself, (alot of bad words) really, Why does this have to happen today of all days. When the officer finally got to my window he said to me, "Do you know why I pulled you over?" To which I replied no. He said you have a headlight out! Really office you have to be a dick to pull me over. I really wanted to say that to him. So I said oh okay. He asked me for my license, registration, and insurance and went back to his car. When he finally came back, which was forever later, he gave me a fix it ticket and said i had 2 weeks to get it fixed and show any officer my ticket and that I got it fixed, I wouldn't get a real ticket. If I failed to get it fixed than it would result in a real ticket. After he let me go I burst into tears again, thinking to myself, really why does the day have to end like this. I called Ben asking him what he wanted for dinner because at this point I wasn't about to cook. He asked what was wrong and then I started to cry all over again. Vented to him about how crappy my day was and how after 9 years of not being pulled over I had to get pulled over for a stupid headlight! Not a way i wanted to end my night.

Catch Up!

I have a TON that I need to blog about. So we are going to clear back to the end of August / September.
We went on a ride with Jake & Katie, Brent, and another Jake. We went to see how the colors were changing. It was just the start of the change but it was beautiful. This time I rode with Ben so I could enjoy the ride and relax.

It was a good ride. We always have a good time! We winterized our bikes a couple of weeks ago and I already want to go on a ride. So lets hope this winter goes by FAST!!!

Memory Lane

My brother Denver came home from his mission a couple of years ago. Well the weekend he came home I was able to meet him at the airport here in SLC and then fly the rest of the way home with him. Well the weekend he came home I took this picture...

I love it. This was taken in April. I think this was taken his first full day back. But I was going through a box of pictures the other day and saw this and had to post it because I just love it!

A couple of weeks ago...

I was one of the many people in line at Seagull Book. It was there celebrating women event. One of the things that you got was a free prize. Well I saw what the prizes were in their magazine and I fell in love with this one.

I got there about 5 min after it opened but I couldn't believe how many people were there. It was a spoil me moment. I got a few very good deals and loved for the first time being part of the "shopping crowd".

But I love the saying that hangs on the wall by my kitchen.
"Dream your Life...Live your Dream."
