I lied, one more post...

I have seen this on everybody's blog and thought I would join in!
Here are the directions: 1. As a comment on my blog, leave one (or two or three) memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember! I guess good or bad, but be nice!!!!!!! 2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments. Try not to embarass me too much!!

Girls Camp

Last post today, I promise:) I was lucky enough last week to go up to Heber Valley with the Young Women in my ward for girls camp. What an amazing place! If you ever have the opportunity to go up there, I highly recommend it. There is such a special feeling and spirit there, I will never forget feeling the strength of our Heavenly Father's love for all of his daughters. We have some amazing young women that attended, but also some awesome leaders!! Ladies, I truly had a blast getting to know you all better, I am lucky to serve with you. And a HUGE thank you to my sister-in-law Camille, who took care of my girls while I was gone. I know it was hard and they were stinkers, but I TRULY appreciate it, it was an amazing opportunity for me. And now, I am sorry, but I have to brag about my hubby. I was so tired the day we got home and knew it was going to be a long day as I had left the house in shambles and we were having lots of family over for a big breakfast the next morning. I was not looking forward to all that cleaning. Anyways, I walk in and totally started crying. My sweet husband had stayed up til 1:30 every night Deep cleaning the entire house. We are talking laundry, dishes, closets, everything! Instead of frantically scrubbing the house all day I was able to just snuggle and nap with my girls that I missed SO MUCH!! Love you Paul!!

David Archadorable...




Haha ha ha! That is the name my cute little nephew came up with for David Archuletta and it totally cracked me up. At the last minute we were able to get three tickets to American Idols Live, and it was awesome!! I was really amazed with how talented they all were, even the people I wasn't crazy about on the show. Skylar loved going on a date with Mommy and Daddy and no Kendall! Of course she got a little freaked out and again needed the earplugs, but by the end she was loving it. There are some crazy David Archuletta fans out there, but he was pretty amazing. David Cook was my favorite the whole season and he did not dissapoint!!

Stadium of Fire




Miley Cyrus, not so great, Blue man group...AWESOME!! We just wish they would have performed longer! Although I wasn't compeletely wowed by Miley, Skylar LOVED her and was up dancing the whole time:) We were able to go with Paul's aunt and uncle and their family and we had SUCH a great time! Unfortunately Skylar was terrified of all the loud noise, and everytime she gets scared she says she has to go potty. Needless to say the people on our row were pretty sick of us by the end. All in all a great night once we got a hold of some earplugs. Kendall didn't mind the noise one bit and just sat in Paul's lap looking around at everything. God bless America!

Johnson Family Reunion



We had a blast! It was a weekend down in Monroe Utah filled with swimming, pioneer games, buck-a-roo rodeo, mechanical bull, pioneer trek and more! I am so grateful to everyone that put in so much work so we could have such a great time! Funniest part of the weekend: Skylar running and picking up the chicken. Classic! She had no idea what to do with it, and I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. Saddest part of the weekend: taking Kendall to the emergency room for dehydration, turned out she had a fever of 102 and an ear infection. Most embarrasing part of the weekend: when I accidentally mooned Paul's entire extended family while riding the mechanical bull. Ohhh, good times :) Best part of the entire weekend: time away with my family learning about those that have come before us and that have sacrificed so much.

"If ye are prepared, ye shall not fear"...

So I have been telling a bunch of people about this fabulous food storage website and figured I would just post about it so you could ALL benefit from it! (if you are interested of course!) Months ago I started getting these emails telling me all the deals from the 5 major grocery stores and what to stock up on for food storage. I thought it was so great to have all the info in one place like that. I have never gotten into using coupons or anything, and never really knew what was a good deal, so I was glad to have someone else do the work for me! Well so many people wanted these emails that the lady who was sending them out finally decided to charge for her services. You go girl! She puts so much time into it, I was really glad she would be getting paid for it. Anyways, on her website you can sign up for the services and it tells you the deals at all the grocery stores, and they are color coded. Red means its cheaper than the Cannery and warehouse stores and to STOCK UP for your years supply, blue is pretty good deal but will go cheaper, and green is only buy if you are completely out. On those lists she always puts how much of the red items you should have for a year supply. Seriously, I am so so grateful to her for her services!! I don't know about you, but food storage has always been something I KNOW I should be doing, but was so overwhelmed I couldn't even start. Having a years supply of food is a commandment from our Prophet, and for the longest time I felt I was blatantly ignoring that. So anyways, after doing this for about 6 months we have a 3 months supply of food we usually eat that I can rotate through easily, and after a few more trips to the Cannery, we will have our years supply too. Oh yeah, and I think she charges like 8 bucks a month or something, you will save that in one trip to the grocery store! That also includes her menu planner which I love because I am always looking for new recipes. Whew! I feel like I should be working for her in her advertising :) But seriously, it has been a huge blessing to us, and if you are not interested in signing up, still go to the website because she has a bunch of awesome info and free downloads on food storage. Her website is www.myfoodstoragedeals.com and her blog is www.myfoodstoragedeals.blogspot.com. Hope some of you find this helpful! (Or you are all actually on top of things and have probably been doing this on your own for years!:)

I'm Back!!

And I am sure I have been missed so much! :) I think I have realized why I have such a hard time keeping up on my blog, I have a gazillion different journals!! I have my own personal journal, one for my Personal Progress (does that sound cheesy? Since I serve in the YW's, we are encouraged to participate along with the girls, I actually love it!), I keep individual journals for my girls so I can write down all the cute fun things they do and give them to them one day, this blog, and recently digital scrapbooking!! Whew, its hard to keep up! Anyway, not too much is new here. The big happenings of June were wonderful and not so wonderful. Not so wonderful-my sweet angel Skylar managed to delete almost ALL of our pictures I have ever taken :( Long story, don't get me started! :) On to better news, Skylar is completely potty-trained! Seriously, she was ready to do it, and with in days she was a pro, she hasn't had an accident in over two weeks! So fun to see them learn and grow. I'll be back later with some pics from the Johnson Fam reunion this weekend, what a blast!
