Our bumb weekend....

So our weekend has started out with me.....
Going to the dentist! I had this feeling come to me that I needed to get my teeth taken care of....And I had one of my friends Rozemary take me last week to an appointment....where I came to find out I needed more than what I wanted...after a bit of an emotional breakdown...We all came to a conclusion! I needed to have two crowns right away and my one wisdom tooth pulled and the tooth next to it pulled (since the wisdom tooth broke it so bad) Well thank goodness I have a great dentist who puts up with me! He even got me in right away- since I have to do things like that asap!
So my appointment was suppose to be friday on the dentists day off...but it moved to Thursday which turned out great!!! My appointment went so well ( way better than last time) And he did such a great job!! ( I would take pictures but I am little swollen)

So now to my poor hubby!!
We had to be at Evergreen at 7:15 am! Then he had to get all checked in! The doctor,nurse, and anesthesiologist were so great and informative!! Here are some pics before surgery!

He said once he got in the anesthesiologist said " say goodnight" and then James was out like a light! When I came to get him he was so out of it....he was so clingy which I love!! The nurse went over everything...and then we got ready to leave!

Once we got into the car...his knee started to bleed a little the nurse actually got in the car too! And started to check on it!! They really were great! They sent us home with some guaze and it started bleeding a little more....

He had his machine delivered so it will move his knee! The guy who came over was great! James needs to be using the machine for 6+ hours a day his first week off!

So all in all...James is sore!And will be a lot worse tomorrow! He is still numb now....and hopefully it will last longer than it is suppose to!

It was so nice to have James mom and Jaiden stop by!And James dad and his best friend Jeremy came and gave him a blessing!!

*James needs to be off of work for a week
* He has to use the machine for 6+ hours a day for a week!
* He will need to use crutches for a minimum of 3 weeks!
And will take about 6 months for it to heal!

8 months already!!!

James and I have been married for Eight months!! Wow time flies by!!! Probably because it has been so great!

We definitely keep busy and always have something going on! It has been a little less busy since James isnt able to go to the gym lately, or go to basketball twice a week!

We can't wait for this summer and all the little trips we have planned along with all the fun things there are to do outside!!! Yay for Seattle!!!!

And here we are after one of my favorites...... Red Robin!!!

Birch Bay- YW retreat!

All the young woman in our ward got to go out of town for 24hours! It seems like not a whole lot of time, but it was a nice little vacation! It was such a perfect day and a ton of fun! The girls had a friday off of school so we took advantage! We left early in the morning and went up to Birch Bay to the Petek's cabin! We started off by having lunch..then played some darts...then we had time to work on Personal Progress....then we got to go to the beach!! Afterwards we went to the cabin and were able to do a fun project while some of the group worked on dinner! After dinner it was time by the fire....and smores of course!!! Then movies and games!! It was a fun little trip!!

Bye bye Rosco

Rosco was such a great and loving dog!I have had him since he was 8 weeks old, I got him in Washington DC and he has been with me almost everyday since he was born!He has been to probably more states than most that read our blog! He loved road trips, playing outside, wearing clothes, playing fetch, and the list goes on~
Recently we have found out that besides not being fond of James, or fufu....he is not very fond of little kids (ecsp those that are around the age of one) He just barks and barks and likes to bite! So that posed a problem to James and I.
So,we talked about it and James was so great about it!He didnt even tell me I needed to get rid of him....he just let me do what I needed to do!
I was not planning on finding him a home right away...but I wanted to before we start to have kids so it makes it easier on me.After talking to my friend Sally....I started looking on craigslist and then I found an ad for a daughter looking for another companion for her father! He was having his 69th birthday, celebrating life after having cancer, and celebrating being sober for 28 years! I talked to him on the phone, and we set up a day to meet him....I told him on the phone that we just wanted to meet him and see how it went.....

We took him to his house and Rosco instantly loved it! He loved him and his little chihuahua! We left to think about the decision we were making and ran to the store to get some last minute things! Rosco didnt even care that we left...James and I ran and got some things and got back and we both felt so much peace! We gave him a new home and felt so much peace about it! I was so worried fufu would be upset but honestly she is happier than ever!!! She actually spends time with us and loves going on more walks and sleeps in our bed now!!! We have gotten updates on rosco and he is doing better than ever!!!
