this weekend i got made fun of for my neurosis about bad guys getting into my house.
and then we got home and found out that bad guys got into our house....

we had such an enjoyable weekend in idaho.
so many good conversations, friends, movies, music.
its was just what we needed,
a little break from smog lake city.

one of the nights we stayed up until 4am,
and we joked about my obsession about locking the "bad guys" out
and how i am sometimes too paranoid about that type of thing.
and how silly it all was.

when we got home sunday night the screens were off our windows
and jay was jumping out the window and walking towards me.
i cant even begin to explain all of the feelings and thoughts i had.

i didnt want to go in our house, but at the same time i wanted to go in so badly.
to walk in and not see things that we left there a few days before wasnt the worst part.
the worst part was knowing that some stranger went through all of our stuff
our closets, the office, our bed room...
he took what he wanted, and left the rest.

he even dumped out my laundry basket so that he could carry all of my jewelry out in it.
or thats what we're guessing since the laundry basket and jewelry were both gone.

i hate that he had to move the picture of the fresno temple
and our engagement photo
and my family photo
in order to get all of the jewelry off the dresser.

i dont like that i couldnt fall asleep last night because every little sound i heard scared me.
i dont like that i feel violated and exposed.
and i dont like that when i got off work early today, i was scared to go home.
so i didnt, until garrett was with me.
and i dont like that when i turn onto our street now,
my stomach drops and i feel like im going to throw up.

its a good thing things are just things.

p.s. garrett found a 7 hour video of dogs barking that i have seriously contemplated turning on every time we leave the house now. you can read his take on all of this and listen to the 7 hours of dogs barking here.

deep love.

Is it too early to get excited about deep love you ask?
not at all.
especially because the audio tracks from last year have just been released!
which means the dvd is on the way soon too.
which also means, that every one should go get the audio here in preparation for the dvd.
but if you need another reason, valentines day?

you might think im biased because i married the ever so talented garrett sherwood
i have seen the show well over 10 times, and sat through hours and hours of rehearsals.
but im not.
truth is, i saw deep love the very first year they did it and fell in love with it way back then.
before i fell in love with garrett.
so when i say this is a dang good album, i mean it.
though i will admit that soon after my first viewing of deep love is when i started crushing on garrett,
but whatever.
go listen to the album!

*track 9 is my favorite. just sayin


can i just say we love and live for the weekends?

one of the best parts of living in a big city is all of the options when it comes to food.
we love our food.
and we love trying new things.
this morning we went to the rose establishment for some rooibos tea.
we got the toasted carmel and it was delicious!
the place itself was charming.
set down town with a loft feel, skylight, and lots of cool little touches like an old stove and subway tile walls.
while we were driving over, snow flakes started falling and the wind was blowing
which created the perfect setting for us to be drinking hot tea indoors to.
though we might not really look it, we really enjoyed our selves, and the tea.
(you cant beat 4$ a pot)

lately the cat has been as needy as the dog. 
he sits at the window and watches us come and go.

and if im going to talk about the cat i might as well talk about the dog too, right?
sal has this blanket in his bed.
lately he drags it around the house like pigsty from charlie brown.
this morning we discovered that he has created a pancho for himself
with a hole for his head and his tail!

for lunch we went to our favorite Vietnamese sandwhich shop, oh mai.
living close to rexburg is so nice for us because it means our friends come to visit often.
this time it was our friend drew who came to visit (he took the photo)
and we met up with our pal old man earl.
(garrett isnt crying, we are both still sick and his eyes and head have been killing him.
and obviously i am a really good listener...)

the weekends are so good to us, and we are thankful for that.
