More news...

Well Wes's Jeep has been in the shop for on and off for the last 4 weeks and nobody could figure out what the problem was. So for the last couple weeks we've been looking for a good deal on a subaru. This morning Wes found a sweet deal in Elk Wa which is about an hour away. So we went and took a look at it and found it was an even better deal than we thought. It has leather heated seats, power everything, tires that only have about 5,000 miles on them and is in great condition. We couldn't pass up the deal so we bought the car! Then this afternoon we got a phone call and found out the jeep was only going to cost $250 to fix! Wes is still thrilled about the purchase, I on the other hand am feeling a little buyers remorse, but it will be nice in the winter to have 2 four wheel drives cars. Anyway so it's been a really big week for Wes and I!

A New Addition...

No, I'm not pregnant. Wes has been talking about getting a dog forever and I've been postponing it for as long as I could... but I finally gave in. We found a four month old Airedale for sale and decided to bite the bullet. I told Wes this was his Birthday and Anniversary present since they are both coming up at the beginning of October. She's really adorable, but I'm still unsure about the being a dog owner! When thinking of names Wes came up with Mitts because her paws are so big, but to make it more girly we decided on Mitsy.

Look at those paws! She kind of looks like an old man with a beard!

Catching up

Over the last month and a half since I last posted here's what I've been up to...

-Working a lot!! Apparently 9 months ago people were busy...

-Played in a soccer tournament in Kimberly Canada. We made it to the championship game and ended up losing to a team from Spokane!! So yes we drove all the way up to Canada to play against girls we play against at the indoor center!! It was so fun to play outdoor soccer again, but 5 games in 2 days... let's just say I had difficulty walking or doing much of anything for about a week!!

-My great grandma passed away and I attended her funeral up in Cardston Alberta. We will miss her greatly, but know she's happy where she is now with family she's been missing for a long time. It was also wonderful to spend a few days with family.

-Went to Banks Lake with almost the entire Dean and Kathy Russell clan. Even Wes got came over on his day off. Unfortunately Spencer wasn't so lucky, we missed him, but are happy Chelsea and Benson were able to join us! Since I forget to bring my camera anywhere I don't have any pictures to put on my blog, but Chelsea has put some pictures up on her blog if you are dying to see what we were up to!!

-Went to Canada a third time within a month for my Mom's family reunion. Before this summer it had been years since I'd been up to visit Cardston, it's such a great little town and it always brings back fond childhood memories. Christian came up with us and on his first day of golf he got a hole in one, so he was thrilled that he made the long drive to Canada.

Now I'm back home and have worked one day and this weekend I'll be heading up to Canada for the 4th time this summer for my cousins wedding!! So there has been a ton of driving, but all the trips were really enjoyable and I'm always so grateful to be able to spend quality time with my family. Sorry there are no pictures like I said I'm not great at remembering my camera!!!
