Mushy Post

I really think that I might just die without Remii.  What did I do with myself when I didn't have a husband?  I can't even sleep at nights.  I listen to his voicemails over and over just to hear his voice and how much he loves me.  I know I am so pathetic!  I should hate him right now because he is in Hawaii!  And last night I was going through our wedding pics for the 100th time and forgot to post this one to the album.
 I instantly started bawling because all of these emotions that I felt at this moment came right back to me.  Never feeling this kind of happiness and so overwhelmed with Remii's love.  Then I instantly had to write my photographer and thank her for capturing this moment.  (This was all at 3 am.)  I am crazy in love with this person.  (Talking about Remii, although I do love my photographer.)  I hope that I can be the best wife that I can be and continue to make our marriage stronger.  I am so happy to be with him for eternity!  I am bawling while writing this because I feel like happiness like this would never exist for me again.

It has been 2 whole weeks since seeing Remii.  Our Florida trip can't come fast enough next week!  I will never take him for granted again!  :)

New Place

Since being back to Utah, I decided to start looking for places to live with all of my spare time.  It is so hard not having Remii here and I miss him like crazy!  And everyone has been taking the boys because they are excited to have them back.  So I went on the hunt the other day.  Usually if you find a good place on KSL it is rented within that hour!  So I stumbled upon this cute little place and I hurried and gave them a call.  Here is what sold me on it:  1. You can walk to the U from here.  2. The school Ben will be going to is the 2nd best in the state, even offering an Opera program.  3.  The area is so nice.  We have million dollar homes behind us.  4. My sister lives 3.6 miles away. 5. Close to Sugarhouse park, the zoo, and Heritage Park.  So I already loved it when I walked through.  I was nervous because 2 other groups were walking through at the same time.  But I filled out the application and he called me back an hour later saying that the place was ours!  Wahoo!!  Now I will have to move by myself which will be no fun.  We move in when we get back from Florida on the 3rd.  I hoping that I will have the place all set up for Remii!  Although I am a little bitter right now because Remii is in Hawaii for a work training.  So jealous!

We made it back to Utah!  I know you are all pretty jealous you didn't get to drive 30 hours across the country.  It is so long and tiring!  The last trip I only had to drive 6 hours because Remii drove most of the way.  This trip I had to drive more.  And we drove through the night.   And because I had to bring the boys home to see their dad, Remii had to provide a transporter.  
Meet Jeremy the transporter.  He was awesome to drive us back!
Luke loves looking at maps.  But fell asleep while reading this one underneath it!
 We decided to split up the drive and make a stop at Remii's parents house in Chicago.  I couldn't have asked for a better mother-in-law.  Seriously I have never met anyone like her.  She sent us with enough food to get to Utah and back.  She is amazing!  While we were there, she pulled out old baby pictures of Remii.  He was so cute and blond!  It made me want his babies right now!  :)

 We stopped to see the Nauvoo Temple and that is always a great experience.  The boys had fun on the grounds and touring the area.  It is such a beautiful and peaceful place.

Lego Crayons

This was probably the funnest activity I have done with my boys!  We had such a fun night with our friends making these Lego Crayons.  I saw something on Pinterest about a Lego Party that looked like so much fun.  And they made these cute little lego crayons.  When me and Luke were getting our tires done, we decided to walk around the mall.  And we ran into the Lego store!  I bought the mold for about $7 dollars and was well worth the investment for such a fun night!  We will be driving back to Utah in about 3 days, and so we had one last fun activity with our good friends in North Carolina.  We will miss them!

We added 1 crayon for each lego guy
