Bringing Home the Bacon (and it smells gooood)!

I can't let this week go by without sharing publicly something you might already know. I'll give you some clues to guess..

  • Kevin
  • Energy Northwest
  • Job
  • Permanent
Did you get it? Kevin has been officially hired on as an employee of Energy Northwest. I'm married to a nuclear man now :)

Oh my goodness it has been so long waiting. Kevin started out there as an intern 2 years ago in July. To me it feels like we've been holding our breaths in this whole time, and now that I can let it out I'm not sure how. Maybe now Kevin will go back to school (cross our fingers), maybe we can buy a house, maybe I can find a different job, maybe we can buy those things we've been wanting (new camera, photoshop, some bikes). From one maybe to a million many maybes. But I'll take those million maybes and a job for Kevin every time!

This is where he works!
I'm so proud of him. He works long days, he gets up at 4:30, he gets home at 4:30, he's in bed by 9:30 now. I have high hopes for the future, I don't really ever worry about Kevin. I just feel like he is destined to succeed...really...truly.

Hope to Grow

Is it that time of year ALREADY!?! Did you watch last year as I lost total control of my garden?


I blame my Miracle Grow potting soil for that.

Well, this year I'm starting out with a plan. No I'm not. It snuck up on me... What I did do was take a trip to Fred Meyer and quickly pick out some seeds before Kevin could complain about how long I was taking (in his defense I do take forever deciding anything). So here they are.

  • Onions
  • Peas
  • 2 kinds of tomatos
  • Jalapenos
And new this year:
  • Green Beans
  • Broccoli (for Kevin)
  • 2 kinds of cucumbers
You may notice that there is an obvious plant missing from last year (hint- it's the spaghetti squash). Vines, all I think about last years crop is vines! Yes, I know that cucumbers grow on vines. I plan on a beautiful trellice in my garden this year. Hey, I did plan something :)

So, my onions, broccoli, and peas are in the ground, and mother nature has been "kind" enough to water them for me the last two days.
This is a sad picture of my onions in the ground

My parents, bless their hearts, bought me the best thing to get the rest of my seeds started indoors. A greenhouse!

Well, a mini-greenhouse!

Isn't that the CUTEST! So, part one of this years garden adventures begins now. Trying is the first step towards failure... but this year will be different! Here I go!

Time. Yuck.

Kevin informed me today that we have been living in our current ward for a year and a half now. I knew that. "Isn't that weird to think" he asked. Well, not really for me, I feel like we've been married for a while now. After I told him that he turned around and blew my mind. He did a little math for me, very Kevin-ish of him. I'm 24 1/2, and I've been married and living in this ward 1 1/2 years. 7% of my life he told me... I've been married 7% of my life! Holy cow, that sounds like a lot! I never knew math could make me feel so OLD. Bring me my bedpan, I'll be needing it sooner than I thought.
