Santa Cruz Weekend!

Wow what a nice get away from Rexburg!
We had a great time camping with the family and going to the Santa Cruz boardwalk.
Mike especially had a good time at the O'NEIL sale!
It was a little chilly that weekend so we didn't make it down to the beach but it was still a lot of fun! We had a lot of nights sitting around the fire talking and lots of yummy yummy food! And when I say lots of food I mean A LOT!!!After all the spinning rides we all felt a little sick but it was so worth it!!
Can't wait for next year!

I'm Learning!

Finally... I am actually learning something in a class that is useful in my life! My homemaking class is probably the best decision I ever made! Thanks mom for pointing it out!!! I think Mike loves my class more than I do!! He loves all my cooking!

We made Pizza Braids...
I made Dough from scratch for dinner rolls and cinnamon rolls...

These dinner rolls turned out so good! They went perfectly with the pork roast I made for Mike and our friends from our ward!

Yummy, Yummy, Cinnamon Rolls!!

I cut these with floss! Who knew you could do that? I didn't!

Homemade Glaze for the cinnamon rolls

These were just Delicious!!
The most rewarding part of making all this yummy food is knowing that Mike is happy and that I'm taking good care of his Belly! I love seeing him try something that I made and really liking it! My favorite part is the hug and kiss I get after I make something yummy!

Happy Mothers Day?

Don't worry everyone! We're not trying to make an announcement or anything!
I woke up this beautiful Sunday morning to this gorgeous bouquet of flowers from my amazing husband!
I'm thinking wait a minute I'm not a mother I don't deserve these but in the card mike said that today was Wife Appreciation Day! Isn't he just the greatest? I love you babe!

Ouch... Ow.. Ooh... Ouch!

So, yesterday I went for my first bike ride. I went by myself to get a feel for things without completely embarrassing myself. It was really fun! I'm still trying to get used to it but it was fun! Believe it or not I road about 4 or 5 miles! Okay so your all probably thinking, "Woah a whole 5 miles?? Wow Jess impressive! NOT!" But gimme a little slack I haven't exercised at all for probably 2 years and I've never ridden a road bike.

SO your probably wondering what this has to do with the title of this post... Alright well no one ever told me that I would get a sore bum from riding a road bike. And when I say sore, I mean throbbing pain! I couldn't even sit down in the chairs in my classrooms today without sitting tilted to the side! But what do I expect... That seat is just too small! Mike says, "Oh ya that will hurt for about 2 weeks and then your butt will get used to it!" 2 WEEKS?!?! What was he thinking? Well thanks for the heads up honey! Jeez la Weez!

Oh and did I mention how sore the rest of my body is too? We had a soccer game the night before this big bike ride extravaganza so I was already sore from that!! And we've been playing a lot of tennis so I've been sore from that too! Okay enough complaining, look on the bright side hopefully I'll lose some weight in the midst of all the pain! Haha

Anyways, just thought I should update everyone on my Biking status! As of now I'm CONCERNED but we'll see how it goes!

Right after our First soccer game. (Which we won 3-1 Sweet!)
