My husband

I wish I had an updated picture of him (my hubby) cause I am completely obsessed with him. He is currently in the middle of fixing his car, so we only have one drivable car - yesterday I was a hour late picking him up from work and I found him juggling a soccer ball in front of his building. I sat there and started counting each juggle. Every once in a while he would get this huge smile on his face and let out a little laugh as he kept going. I counted 97 consecutive juggles and I didn’t even start counting right when I pulled up. After about 6 minutes of watching him he just grabbed the ball and ran to the car – he got in, and I was a little upset. I asked him why he stopped and he said “I didn’t want to make you wait any longer!” HELLO!!! I wanted him to keep going to see how many he could get! I asked him what he was up to and he said 300!!!! Yes that’s right! My husband totally juggled a ball 300 times in a row with his feet! Freaking amazing!
And then we went home – he worked out, I made dinner and then we went for a walk.
We got home and I took my shoes off and stated “I hate when my toes aren’t painted, they look like man feet, gross!”
I’m at that point that it is uncomfortable for me to bend over for long periods of time, so painting my toes doesn’t even appeal to me.
I washed my face and jumped into bed.
Casey came in with some fingernail polish and said “I’ll paint your toes for you!”.
He picked out the color and everything! I seriously, have the BEST HUBBY!
He did a really good job, I was impressed – and I got to wear sandals today!

Okay Okay

So I did a little research...I had to vent okay? I really do think it was those dang deer! Remember my post last year about how much I LOVE deer? Both homes that Casey and I have lived in are surronded by deer and I LOVE seeing them everynight as I drive home. So, I guess I can forgive them this one time...I didnt understand why my Hyacinths and Daffodils werent eaten, but it is because deer do not like them. So, atleast they saved those for my enjoyment!
I found an article about what plants/flowers deer like. It said to "keep them away by hanging bars or soap or bags of hair around your yard" - okay white trash! No thanks!
So, my friends, if you live near me - do you mind planting some Tulips in your yard so the deer will come eat yours instead of mine? They are one of their favorite treats!!!

Seriously? Casey and I had a WONDERFUL weekend! We didnt get one minute to get anything done that we needed to - but it was filled with family and friends and included some of our friends getting sealed in the Temple. It was perfect!
Until last night...I have been anxiously awaiting my tulips to open. They have been a little confused as to when they should actually open, but they had about an inch more to grow and their bulbs were just about ripe! I knew it would be sometime this past weekend...Then, on the way home from my parents house for dinner...Casey asked "did you cut the tulips or something?" I thought he was kidding, he knows that I LOVE my tulips - they really are beautiful, year after year and grow HUGEand they always recieve compliments!!! He wasnt kidding! We pulled into the garage, I jumped out and went to the front of the house...and sure enough - SOMEONE CUT THE TOPS OFF ALL OF MY TULIPS!!! SERIOUSLY???? WHAT THE HELL??? Excuse my vulgarity, but seriously?
Not were just the tops cut, but many were cut all the way down so that only about 2 - 3 inches of the greens were showing. Who the freak just goes into someones yard and cuts their tulips off? After I examined each area where my spring best friends should have been shinning, I noticed that on top of our rock wall that leads up to our house, that ALL of my beloved purple flowers have been cut OR PULLED (ROOT AND BULB) OUT!!! I am seriusly in shock - I have no idea who would do this - and they have left me seriously saddened. Im not kidding when I say that one of my favorite things about coming home from work in the Spring, is seeing my Tulips! They stand taller than a foot or two high and are so vibrant in color, they just make me smile! I wont get that this year. Now I have empty patches of perrinals where no flower will grow, My Hyacinth (which only bloom for about 3 weeks) and my Daffodils are all I will get to see.
So dear tulip and my purple flower that I cant remember the name of snipper - you ruined my day!
And if you thought you were trying to help thinking that 'maybe they have already bloomed and need to be snipped back' - you were wrong...why? well, 1. Because they have not bloomed yet and 2. Keeping the greens well into summer letting them soak up the suns rays helps them grow better the following year. So you didnt help...AND, STAY OUT OF MY YARD!!!
PS - At first, we thought maybe the dear or an animal has been enjoying our flower garden, but upon examination, they were indeed clipped, by scissors!
