Well, we actually ended up being ok by the time we left the store. I apologized for being such a crappy wife. He disagreed. I insisted I was one. Then I ate my food I had been thinking about the whole time we were arguing in the store. After that we had a super enjoyable time! I actually don't mind it on the rare occasion that we DO argue because we ALWAYS end up the best of friends afterwards and it makes the good times just that much sweeter. Now THAT'S a marriage!
Ok, then comes the good part. We are on our way home and I ended up phoning 911 but ozzy style which is 000 and tattling on some hooligans who were going highway speed and one of the idiots was sitting with his whole upper body out the window and drinking and smokin and then feet out the window and the car in front obviously knew them and they were throwing food at each other and and swerving in and out of lanes. Ridiculous. I don't usually not mind my own business. But I figured it was a safety issue and so... Ok, then we get about 3 k from home and notice that the check engine light is on. So the engine conks out and we end up stranded on the side of the road. Call a tow truck. This nice lady stops and offers help so I get a ride to the house with her while Rick and Candy wait for the tow truck. And turns out this lady happens to be my neighbour's sister! Too weird eh?
So this was quite an exciting day for us. Especially candy. She said "Wow, it was my first time to go to the temple AND my first time in a tow truck!" hahaha Oh, and I forgot to tell you that Rick lost his temple rec b4 we left and even after 2 prayers, it still took us 15 min or so to find it. Is that an indication of our level of righteousness? hmmm....We did have an excellent time at the temple though. Rick got to confirm me for 10 people and I got to sit there while all of our beautiful YW were confirmed for people and I saw Candy get dunked 5 times. It was nice.

Yes, ok? Anyone who knows me from when I was younger knows I had this great deep desire to have braces. It was so bad that I used to get an elastic band and cut it and then tie a short piece of dental floss onto the ends so that I could stick the floss between my teeth and the elastic would go on the front of my teeth. Like braces right? hahaha! I was such a retard! Anyways, seeing as how I was fortunate enough to be blessed with naturally super straight teeth although at that time I was cursing them, I never got to get braces :(
Well now I have a daughter who needs them and today she got them put on. Yippeee! Although aparently, you are very restricted in your diet and are not supposed to have hardly any sweets as they can really cause some damage. With that in mind, maybe I should be glad I never had to have braces eh? Well, I think she looks fab and I really think she'll look even more fab in the end. So I have to live vicariously through my daughter now. I was more excited than she was this morning when she went to get them put on! haha

Well, If that wasn't enough drama, my granny decides that she doesn't want to walk all the way back to our towels in the soft sand and opts to stay closer to the water so after setting herself up there, laid down for a nice little snoozer and wouldn't you know it, after about 15 min a big wave comes in and absolutely smothers her! She sure got up in a hurry and my Aunt Sylvia sitting next to me starts laughing hysterically and kept on laughing for a good 5 min or more! It was sooo funny just to hear her laughing at her sister's demise! Funny lady!
I had a feet fetish that day and wanted to take some cool pics of our feet in the sand but this is about as cool as it got. I really would like to be good enough to be a professional photographer but I guess I'll have to settle for just being a good cook. Auntie silly, granny and Lyds were thinking I was pretty strange to be infatuated with the feet.
My toes look pretty cute though don't ya think? You can see the scar where I got an ingrown toenail cut out when I was a teenager!

So here are some of my favorite pics of her and I when she was here. Enjoy!
We went to the Temple one day and these 2 pics were taken in a little building across the street. A gazebo type building.
Of course, with me as your sister, you always get plenty of goofy photo opps!
Self portrait. At a beach up in Peregian where we had some time to kill because my car broke down that day and we had to wait for Rick to come rescue us. I was actually pretty stressed at the time!
At "The Skin Thing" a store where you can buy all kinds of lambs wool, sheepskin, slippers, rugs, hides and the like. They actually had a couple of real zebra hyde's! It was so weird. A skunk one too! Why anyone would want that I have no idea...hmmmm
Pretty Lyddie. I took this pic. For some reason Lyd just LOVES getting her picture taken! hmmmm...
Lyd took this picture of me at the beach right behind our friends house at Marcus Beach. It was a beautiful little walk from the back door along a little trail that went up and down and winded through and at the end was a beautiful sight waiting for us.
Another goofy photo opp! We are such nerds!
Lyddie made this dress for me. And she found her plum one at a shop here in the "Plaza"
Anyways Lyd, I sure do think you are absolutely the sweetest most thoughtful sister, auntie, and sister in law me and my family could ask for! You always were the sweeter out of the two of us and I used to be jealous cuz "everybody loved Lydia!" But now I'm just happy that you're that way and I'm the way I am. I luv you sis!
