last week we had to put cinnamon down to sleep. we found out that she had a tumor and it had destroyed her lung cavity and there was nothing that could be done for her. it was really hard and both ben and i miss her very much.

ben took me hiking the other day and it sucked because i am horribly out of shape. but the scenery and the xx music on my ipod helped to make it better.

what we've been up to

the past couple of weeks have been a little busier than usual for us. ben has been doing annual training with the army, so he is gone all day. i started a new job at photo works. it is a new portrait studio and everyone should check it out. it is awesome! that's all for now. i don't have any pictures for this post because ben has taken my computer hostage, so i have to use his and none of my pictures are on his computer. i miss my computer.

our 4th of july weekend

was tons of fun! we spent the weekend with family: eating, watching fireworks, going to the freedom festival and parade, and loving the great weather. it was a crazy busy weekend but we loved every minute of it. except for cinnamon. she doesn't like it when we are gone.

random picture time:
freedom festival parade
ben shaved his head because he has army training. i don't like it at all. 
ben hitting the ball at me because i don't like his shaved head. haha. just kidding. he is actually bad at hitting the ball in the right direction.

nothing new

not much going on here today, so here is another of my favorite moments from the orem summerfest parade. i can't remember what they were advertising, but they were funny.

orem summerfest

oday i went to the orem summerfest parade with my parents. {ben stayed home so he could play computer games with his friend andrew. nerds.} it was a lot of fun. all the floats and people were great, but my favorite part had to be the singing moses. at least i think he was singing. it was hard to hear what he was saying.

he was part of the orem institute of religion float. 

only in utah. haha!

cinnamon on a leash

the other day we bought cinnamon a leash and took her outside. we don't ever let her go out so this was her first time walking around in the grass. we aren't sure if she liked it, she was just smelling everything.

a little post

she is soooo pretty.

and i'm thinking of buying this print from audrey malo. it's cute, pink, and i love it.

a walk in the park

it was a great day today, so ben and i decided to go to the park.

we swung. my favorite activity at the park.

then we walked around the park. 

the end. 

{p.s. my mom doesn't like my shoes. haha!}

books, books, books!

so here is what we are currently reading:

edlin: darcys give a ball, hunted, and tempted. the last two are part of the house of night series.

ben: essentials of biology.

and we have a serious deep love for magazines in our home. ben reads his computer and newsweek magazines. i am reading the current issues of nylon and elle, plus martha stewart living to inspire me for summer.

one of those days

today i spilled cornstarch all over the floor. i almost made cinnamon walk through it because it would have been funny to have little white paws all over my kitchen floor, but then i thought about having to clean her up so i made sure she didn't get close.

then later, i pushed ben away when he was teasing me and he lost his balance and fell into our bookcase. he now has a boo-boo on his bum {don't worry i didn't take any pictures}. ugh! i hope this day ends soon, before i hurt someone or something else. it's been one of those days.

music monday

not much is new with us. we have been working and going to school and having fun. but because i don't want to have a boring post i wanted to write about one of my favorite bands, gossip. love all of their music. they are from oregon and had most of their success in the uk. ben even likes them and he normally doesn't like what i listen too. haha! here is one of my favorite songs.

world cup

i am so excited for the world cup. i will cheer for my usual teams (mexico, england, germany, and italy) and pray that sucky teams don't win (and yes i mean brazil and argentina). and this nike commercial is great. i love wayne rooney from england, and even though i think christian ronaldo is a little overrated, his part of the commercial was funny.

zooey deschanel

so i may have a slight obsession with zooey deschanel. she can do no wrong and in this new editorial for lula (shot by ellen von unwerth) she looks beautiful. here are some of my favorites.

wii fun

ben has been bugging me that i haven't mentioned on our blog that we got a wii. so, we got a wii this weekend and now ben is addicted to blazing angels (a flying game) and i still suck at guitar hero. i'm hoping that one day i will actually move from beginner to easy. ha! we'll see how it goes.

and it is all cloudy and rainy today but it makes the tree/bush thing we have in our backyard look really pretty.

Friday, May 14, 2010


remember this post? well, i now have my very own pair of aldo shoes! they are so cute and they are the perfect pair of oxfords that i was looking for. love them.

park fun

{image via weheartit}

ben and i went to the park today and had a fun time. it was great to be on the swings and talk about random topics like the beginning of the cia and fbi. it was great to enjoy the beautiful weather and have the opportunity to relax. i didn't take any pictures because i am lame and forgot my camera. boo, i need to get better about that.
