Doggy Sitting

Over the weekend a couple weeks ago Griff and I were able to Puppy Sit Bentley!! The Blands were in Arizona helping Megan and Devin move back to SLC, so we had some fun sleepovers with the little guy. We went and picked him up on that Thursday it was crazy weather outside. When we got to our house Griff took him out it literally was a blizzard! So afterwards we decided to bath Bentley so he was nice a clean for bed time. He did good in the tub, but afterwards he was having a hard time in his bed so Griff put him in our bed. The next day he spent the day at his families while Griff was at work and I ran errands. In the evening we picked him up again and yes he did sleep in our bed that night too. It was so funny, he was in his bed on the floor but did not like it I wonder if he was a little home sick... but he ran over to Griffin's side of the bed wanting to be picked up but he didn't, so he then ran to my side, then back and forth until we picked him and he snuggled us both all night. In the morning Griff's brother Eric picked him up from us to take him to his parents.
It was a fun weekend having a puppy!!!

Laura in town

Laura came to Visit!!
So us girls went to Mimi's Cafe to have some delicious dinner and catch up.
We miss not having Laura here... We don't get together nearly enough as girls anymore. I wish that we would all get together more ofter *hint hint*. :)
We know that Laura is loving living out of state with her hubby and having such an amazing time of her life but yet I say again we miss you and wish you didn't live so far away!
After dinner we went back to hang out at her uncles house. We talked for hours!! It is amazing how much we needed to catch up on and laugh about. I love these girls so much they are seriously one of a kind. You know you have a good friend when they listen and don't judge, laugh with you, and help you through what they need to.
Next time you are in town we need to do dinner again.

Half Bath Painted

A few weeks ago Griffin painted our half bath. We decided on a light gray color, it is a black and white color scheme. Griff had his friend Stephen come over and help him get it going. They did a really good job taping everything off and painting! After Steve left Griff stayed in there for a few more hours painting the second coat and the ceiling. The next day it was all painted!! It look amazing. He did so good we love it. We still need to go buy white paint so we can paint the base boards, once that is painted then the bathroom is all remodeled.
We got our cute towel rack hung up by the sink, oh my word it is my most favorite!!
Love how it is coming together!

Universal Studios

On the 5th of April we drove to Universal Studios. I had not been there since I was very young so it was all new to me. Same with Griff so we had a great time seeing all park. When we got in we went on the tour behind the scenes to see how movies are made. We got to see Fast and the Furious, Desperate Housewives, The Grinch, and many many more super fun shows. Afterwards we rode some rides (well my family did, the rides here were much to big for a prego girl) and ate some lunch. We watched a Water World show and did some shopping. The one ride I did ride was the Simpson's Ride, it was a very long long wait but so worth it!!
We left the park pretty late and had a good drive back to the condo. Once we got there we showered and fell asleep. In the morning we had a super relaxing day. The girls went to Downtown Disney to do some final shopping while Griff went Golfing, then back to the condo for some BBQ chicken and pool time. It was such a pretty day to soak up some sun. My parents and Grandparents only stayed till about 2 or 3pm then they drove to Vegas. Meanwhile Griff and I, Lindsay and Zach played some more in the pool and hot tub. Afterwards we got cleaned up and just relaxed for the night. Then off to dream land we went.
Griff woke me up bright and early 5am Cali time (6am slc time) to start our long drive back home! On the way we stopped for some breakfast and took some naps. It took us about 9-10 hours but finally Home Sweet Home!!!
What a fantastic trip. I loved every minute!!!
