We really need to post...

Soooo...I really like my job! It's awesome and everyone that works there is really cool! I'm so thankful to have it.

We have been watching the olympics like we are friends with Team USA, even family members...we are very tired. We ALMOST had a baaaaad thing happen last night. There was a lot of thunder and lightning, and our power went out for a second, then our TV WOULDN'T TURN BACK ON!!! It was plugged into a surge protector, but for some reason it would not turn on! Clint moved it and tried it in another plug after a few minutes, and then it worked. We moved it back and now it works like normal. During the time it was down, we, or I should say he, brought my other tv in here (which we haven't turned on since the move...we haven't gotten cable yet) and turned it on to watch snowy olympics and...two of the corners were DISCOLORED!! So basically we had no good tv for like 2 minutes. It was a sad moment. But then his started working again and the discoloration seems to be fading some on mine. FUEF!

..........I got to see Braden today!!! (AND Ashley and Morgan and Brian!:)) He is so cute and tiny and perfect. He already looks like both of his parents. Love him!!!

Presidential Candidate Interviews at Saddleback

pretty cool!

Quick Update

Well, I got the book for my bday (thanks family!!) and finished it in 2 days. It was so good!! Made me laugh a lot and cry some. I definitely recommend it. Great writer. I. want. a. dog. bad. (but not for real - need a yard first - and I'm in no hurry to buy a house so...catch 22).

I got lots of other fun gift certificates and things (yaaaaay for shopping!), and Clint got me a beautiful one of a kind painting set (kind of 3 paintings that make up one picture) that I really wanted to go above our bed. I'll post pictures asap as he's hanging it right now. Yay! (We have had nothing on our bedroom walls yet up to this point) I had a wonderful birthday weekend - my sweet husband did so many sweet things for me (and gave me a new Starbucks card! I had just run out of the one he gave me as part of my wedding has "Lauren "Hottie" Brock" printed on it which is sort of embarrassing when actually using the card but quite flattering. :) Love you hubby)

I also started my new job this week! Hoorayyyy! I'm the new Media Coordinator for It has been great so far, everyone is so nice and I'm already pretty busy. It really seems like a great place to work and everyone there keeps telling me how much they love it. Sounds good to me!! :)

Morgan and Brian had their adorable baby boy, Braden Joseph. He's adorable and I can't wait to see him in person.

Laine comes home from a month stay at Kanukuk (sp?) tomorrow. Yay! Can't wait to see her! I'm a horrible sister and didn't write her a letter so here's my shout out to her. :) The best counselor ever ever!

I'm so excited that the weekend actually means something this weekend! Yay for work! :)

It is also my dear friends Katy and Kristian Rose's 3rd Anniversary today. I'm so happy for yall and hope you had a wonderful day!

Woo hoo Olympics! Go Team USA! Our days revolve around and watching them on tv right now...who needs sleep?

That's it for now, as I actually am in need of some sleep...

I want this book for my birthday!!!

(and a dog to go with it...or mom and dad, it would suffice if you just got one I could play with whenever I wanted ;))

Read about it here:

It sounds soooo good! I read a bit of it at Barnes and Noble yesterday and couldn't put it down!

I love dogs. Mom you need to read this book so you will get one. :)

It's August!

and that means...

...I'll be 25 this month!! A quarter century!! That's craziness. But exciting. :) I'm a real adult! (with a sweet husband who already bought and wrapped my present and hid it under the bed! haha, being married makes surprises a little more difficult - but he isn't giving up! :))

...I start my new job at GodTube this month! :) August 12 to be exact. Finallyyyyy!

...I get to go grocery shopping today!! Some would not think of this as exciting but I've been trying to prove to myself that my shopping/inventiveness in the kitchen skills could make the July groceries last through all of July...(kinda gave up and got a rotisserie chicken last night - YUM!) and now I get to restock! Wahoo. Kind of a silly game, I know, but I like to grocery shop!

...Our great friends Morgan and Brian and having a BABY BOY this month! And hopefully this week. Pray for them that everything goes smoothly. :) We are ready to meet little Mr. Buchek!

...It's HOT outside and people should come swimming at our place as much as possible!! And grilling out by the pool!

...My siblings go back to their studies this month. :( So I will see less of them. But we will come visit/they can come stay with us anytime!

...Clint and I will have been married 4 months this month! Time FLIES!!! It's so amazing that we get to do this forever (like 4 months times 234582346!)! Kinda feels like a 4 month vacation of wonderful funness sometimes - but no, it's forever, and it just gets better! :) Love him lots. :)

...We will try to redeem ourselves from our horrible record in the past few weeks of posting so little. I'm trying this first without pictures post and I think that will help. :)
