Ok- sorry for no blog posts these last few weeks. It has been crazy being in Cabo for a week and then having to move to the East Coast!! After MULTIPLE trips to Walmart (every store is at least a 20 min drive away ugh) we are finally getting settled in. Today Jordan went out selling for the first time and guess what.... HE MADE A SELL! YAY!! After the last few weeks we have spent LOADS of money (moving, hospital bills, etc.) so this was great to have him do so great on the first day. Hopefully this is how it will be for the rest of the summer :)
I hate that I don't get to see him EVER! (He was gone from 9:30 am and it is 10:40 pm and he is still not home) I am so grateful he is working so hard. Plus the time goes by fast when I get to play with these kids!!

Brody and Cadance eating the home made pizzas we made

He was trying to smile but had a mouthful of pizza in at the time.

Here are a few pics of our place. It isn't spotlessly clean yet, but hey! we only moved in 2 days ago.

Living room

Kitchen (which we will never use cause we always go eat delicious homemade meals at Jared and Amy's... I am NOT complaining about that!)

Hallway. We have an extra bedroom and bathroom we don't use here too. But I didn't bother taking pictures of them. And our own washer and dryer! yay!

Messy bedroom.

Closet. (A round of applause for Amber for packing to light!! )

Bathroom! (thats our little garbage bag we use hanging from the drawer haha.. we are cheap and don't want to buy a garbage can for the bathroom.)

Keep looking for my next post. I will post about our UNLUCKY trip to Cabo. It includes hospital stays, sea urchins (spelling??), and surfing.

(I already googled and yes, there is a golds gym about a mile away from are apartment..but you can only work out for so long each day..) What else??
ps- i will blog about our Cabo trip when we get settled into our summer place. Trust me- its a great story haha.

Some good thoughts

Ya know those days when you need a good quote or lift to remind you that everything is going to be ok? Well I found this list on my good friends blog. Thanks Amy Sperry for brightening my day. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will. Stay in touch.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
8. It's okay to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistant is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up your future.
12. It's okay to let your children see you cry.
13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouuldn't be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful, or joyful.
18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles and wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save if for a special occasion.
Today is special.
22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words "In five years, will this matter?"
27.Always choose life.
28. Forgive everyone everything.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give time, time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
35. Growing old beats dying young.
36. Your children get only one childhood.
37. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
38. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
39.If we all threw our problemes in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
40. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
41. The best is yet to come.
42. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
43. Yield.
44. Friends are the family that we choose for ourselves
45. Life isnt tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
