Hmmm... where do I begin? Two of my very best friends came to stay with me last week, and I already miss them like crazy. We all went to the shops at Legacy for lunch with Teresa(the one with the little stud to the right of me) one day, and had so much fun... ps.. why don't we hang out more teresa? haha anyway...I have known Nicole and Stacey since I can remember, and it was just so nice having them here. They were so easy going and helpful and fun. It really really makes me miss Utah. I wouldn't trade growing up there for anything. I made the best friends there that anyone could ever ask for. And as I had to take them back to the airport the other day, a little piece of my heart broke. So, to keep me from buying a last minute, crazy expensive plane ticket, and flying back to my beautiful home with Avree, and never coming back (Eric would come eventually, right?!?) ... I have decided to get over myself, and be positive, and think of some good things about living in Texas...
1. Eric and his family and friends are here
2. I love our ward
3. I love my clientele
4. Blue Bell Ice Cream
5. I don't have to shovel snow or scrape my car off in the morning
So, that's it for now. I know real life would happen if we lived in Utah too, but sometimes It's hard not to get caught up in thinking that the grass would be greener(which it is... literally. I love Utah grass... so soft. Kind of like carpet.)

Now Nicole is going to visit me tomorrow!...So I scrolled down your blog and saw the 2 month shots picture! That just made me get teary eyed cause my baby gets hers in 3 days and I'm so sad!!

I know what you mean about missing Utah. But now that Ryan and I are here, we really miss things about Texas, expecially being able to come up to Dallas and hang out with all of you guys. So there are negatives to both. But if you have a chance, come back to Utah, it is so great. Even Ryan is liking it here and he was the one that said he would never live in Utha again. Hang in there! Your daughter is adorable by the way.

Oh, sweet Nicole! I love her!! I do have to agree about the Blue Bell ice cream. It's amazing, isn't it? So, have we figured out how far we are away from each other?
