Too funny...KSL ad

OK, let me start off by saying this blue camaro z28 is only available for purchase by the manliest of men (or women). My friend, if it were possible for a vehicle to sprout chest hair and a five o'clock shadow, this chevy would look like Vin Diesel. It is just that manly.

This fourth generation camaro Z28 was never intended to drive to the mall so you can pick up that adorable shirt at Abercrombie & Fitch that you have your eye on. It wasn't meant to transport you to yoga class or Linens & Things. No, that is what your Prius is for. If that is the kind of car you are looking for, then just do us all a favor and stop reading right now. I mean it. Just stop.

This car was engineered by 3rd degree ninja super-warriors in the highest mountains of michigan to serve the needs of the man that cheats death on a daily basis. They didn't even consider superfluous nancy-boy amenities like navigation systems (real men don't get lost), heated seats (a real man doesn't let anything warm his butt). Your amenities are POWER. Power windows, power steering, power locks,power under the hood. The T-Tops, Borla cat-back exauhst, magnaflow high flow cat, moroso cold air intake, trick flow ceramic coated elbow, mtx thunderform hidden 10" 250 watt subwoofer and box, mtx 250 watt amp, 4 polk component speakers, 4 polk tweeters, 4 crossovers, pioneer head unit w/ipod control are just icing on a delicious cake.

No, this sexy brute comes with the things us testosterone-fueled super action junkies need. It has a 300(approx.) Hp v8 engine to outrun the cops. It has special blood / gore resistant upholstery. It even has a first-aid kit in the back. You know what the first aid kit has in it? A pint of whiskey, a stitch-your-own-wound kit and a hunk of leather to bite when you are operating on yourself.(not included)

With minor modifications this beauty can easily pump up HP to 350-400 and with less than 3400# weight it is blazing fast. Scary fast if not for the crisp handling and suspension. This camaro has an automatic transmission so you can shift into a lower gear, slam on the 4-wheel disc brakes and spin around the corner while the terrorists fall off the cliff. The brand new Potenza tires will keep you on the road. It has saved my bacon more than once.

My price on this bad boy is an incredibly low $5,000, but I will entertain reasonable offers. And by reasonable, I mean don't walk up and tell me you'll give me $1,000 for it. That's liable to earn you a Burmese-roundhouse-sphincter-kick with a follow up three fingered eye-jab. Let's just say you won't be the prettiest guy at the Coldplay concert anymore.

There are less than 120,000 miles on this four-wheeled hellcat from Planet Kickass. Trust me, it will outlive you and the offspring that will carry your name. It will live on as a monument to your machismo. It has been meticulously maintained by the men in lab coats, garaged deep underground in a secret cave. It has never been wrecked because I'm a better driver than the bad guys.

Now, go look in the mirror and tell me what you see. If it is a rugged, no holds barred, super brute he-man macho James Bond stunt double, then contact me. I might be out hang-gliding or BASE jumping or just chilling with my ladies, but I will get back to you. The car is waiting for your admiration.

Carpel Tunnel Syndrome

My wrists and hands have been hurting so bad lately. Even when I wear wrist guards at night, the pain keeps me up and in the morning they hurt so bad and my fingers tingle and go numb. It sucks and I'm getting SICK of it! I went to a specialist and will be having surgery on January 14...YAY! I just want it to stop hurting.

Water Leak!

August 5, 2009

Our lawn has been saturated around the sprinkler valves / water meter. Shawn had a sprinkler guy come check it out and he determined that it was the water main. So Lehi City came out today to fix it.

They will be back in a week or so to lay new sod. Now our water is back on and I was able to take a shower and get to work!

Our House, in the Middle of Our Street

I'm so glad we are finally in our house! It was a long time coming and I think we got a great one.

There are some things we are required to do to the house per the HOA that were approved in the original plans. We have to put up a rail on the front porch, it has to be painted the color of the slats, black shutters on the three windows, a chimney cap, bushes and trees in the yard, etc. It's going to be a pain and the look will change a bit. There are also things inside that need to be done: blinds throughout, handles on the drawers in the kitchen and bathrooms, etc. The joys (and expense) of a foreclosure home...heck, just a home in general. But it's OURS and we love it!!!

Moving Day...Days...

May 9, 2009

Moving day is finally here!

Over the past week Shawn and I took loads to the new house and there is still sooo much to move! I can't believe how much crap we have. I so hate moving. I don't want to do this again...ever!

I forgot to take pictures of all our stuff, the moving truck, etc. Dang it, but I was just too stinkin' busy! Oh well...

The only photos I took were goofing around ones:

Brandon and Logan
climbing the tree and jumping to Joey

Justin and Joey wound the kids up with packing
supplies. It was nice to have some fun after
working so hard all day.


And some of the adults...wait, it's Stacia, she's a kid too!!

By the time we were unloading, we were EXHAUSTED! It was about killing Shawn to take our cabinets up to the loft. Luckily our friend Ranes came over to help. He seriously saved us. We are so grateful for all the help we had today.

Now we have the chore of getting everything in the house and unpacking...sigh... Did I mention I hate this??

Mother's Day

Oh yay...Happy Mother's Day to me. Guess I'm doing?? Yah, unpacking...this sucks! Oh well, we will celebrate next week.

After being in Utah for only 4 months, Hyrum, Morgan and girls are moving back to North Carolina. I'm sad they couldn't stay and give Utah more of a chance. Oh well, they have to do what they think is best for their family. I was really looking forward to getting to know them better.

We all went to Leatherbys as a farewell to them. It was, of course, fun and delish! We love them and wish them luck. I hope NC is good to them!
