We are so stoked that it's Biggest Loser time again!!! This is Greg and my's favorite T.V. show. I seriously would LOVE LOVE LOVE to be on this show. Not because I think I'm obese or anything but because they just get to workout all the time!!! I know, I know...I'm a little nuts. But WE LOVE THIS SHOW!!!

Our New Church Callings

Greg has been called to be a Ward Missionary and I've been called to be on the Activities Commitee - once again. We're excited to be able to serve in our new ward and get to know people. Greg is excited to be really involved in missionary work. He loved his mission and loved being a missionary. As for me and the Activities Committee, it'll be fun to plan activities. It's a good calling. A few big weeks out of the year that take the life outta ya, but other than that, it's great!!

One of my favorite things

My sister-in-laws both had this watch and I wanted it sooo bad so my cool mother-in-law got me one for my birthday! K-Coolest watch EVER!!!!
It has a heartrate monitor that's attached to it and when you exercise it tells you your heart rate, how many calories you've burned and how long you were in your target heart rate/fat burning zone. I'm telling you, it's great if you exercise! If I was Oprah, I'd buy ya'll one ;)

The Republican National Convention

I've gotta say, I have been glued to the RNC and news. I love the energy and excitement that was felt during the convention and to see people's patriotism shine!! Wasn't Mayor Guiliani a total comedian that night? I loved the way Sarah Palin's little girl, Piper, helped take care of her little brother (hair and all). I learned a lot of things about the candidates I didn't know and it was nice to hear some of their views without someone else talking over them like in the debates.
I think Sarah Palin is great! I think that she's got a back bone and doesn't care what lobbyist and big-time power heads think. I think it's hilarious that she sold her jet on e-bay. I don't know if I would've gotten rid of the chef though...LOL!!! I told Greg if he ever thought I was a spit-fire, he could be married to Sarah Palin...He agreed.
Anyway, I feel like when she speaks that she just another mom down the street. I feel like she sees things the way that I see them and has a lot of things in common with the average American Woman.
I'm excited for a change and hope that she and McCain, along with Cindy McCain and her big heart, make it to the White House. They have my vote!

You've Gotta Move with the Cheese...

Well, it's official. We've moved from our home in beautiful Cedar Hills. Left family, friends, neighbors and ward members that we love. Some of you in the corporate world might be familiar with the book/presentation, "Who Moved My Cheese?" Anyway, it's the best way to describe what our move is all about. The book is about 2 mice. One finds a huge amount of cheese and settles with what he has and the other is constantly looking for more cheese to progress. Anyway, kinda a funny way to describe it but it's what comes to mind.
We've been praying for an opportunity and we're so glad and grateful for my Uncle Shane who provided us with one. We're in Billings, MT and Greg is working for Rocky Mountain Home Care. We're all excited to be here!
Tanner started his first day of school today. Here in MT the school is K-8 grade. So Tanner is in Middle School with a locker and all. What a transition to make all in one week. A new state, a new school, new friends, MIDDLE SCHOOL (YIKES)...When I dropped him off I was sooo nervous for him. He'll do great though. He didn't seem nervous so why should I be, right? He's always been the class clown and makes friends easily. So no need to worry, right Mom?
This morning Greg said to me, "You're lucky you get to stay home with the kids!" And my response was, "You're right, I AM LUCKY!!!" Lucky and blessed in more ways I can even comprehend. We're grateful for all who helped us move...Especially Lynn, Aaron & Angela. We couldn't have done it without you!!!!!!!!
Anyway, kinda a journal entry more than a posting...
