Today in the car we were trying to teach Miss Millie that we live in Utah. This is how the conversation went.

Mom: Millie say Utah
Millie: Utah
Mom: Do you know what Utah is?
Millie: Ahhh
Mom: We live in Utah, you know like daddy use to live in Texas.
Daddy: Millie do you want to live in Texas?
Millie: Ah No... I want to live in Florida!!

How does this kid even know about Florida? Of all places, I guess she is smarter then we thought.

Happy Birthday Wishes

I'm not sure how I am feeling about turning 45. I told myself that I was done having birthday's - seems like there tends to be a certain expectations when it comes to our birthdays. Maybe this stems from our childhood with parties, cakes, presents etc. But I'm not sure at what age it comes, but all of a sudden we no longer expect parties, cakes and presents. Just having the people that mean the most around us is all that we desire. Caren made me a delicious dinner, Kenna made a yummy cake - Millie, Maddie, Craig and James were all there to enjoy the feast. Aaron came by to celebrate and as always stepped in to help out with dinner. It was a relaxing night, well for the most part. Miss Millie has been sick for the last several weeks and like any sickness it gets worse in the evenings. Last night was probably one of the toughest nights for her. Once she was able to stop coughing and crying she slept like a baby.

I have always said that when I turn 45 I wanted to be in the best shape of my life. Well needless to say i started this about 3 weeks ago. Not much time to accomplish my goal, but at least it was a start. I set out three weeks ago and started the INSANITY work out program. This has been such an exhausting but rewarding workout. I love the results that I am seeing in just a short period of time. I am going to see this through for the whole 60 days. Maybe if I'm brave enough I will post the before and after photos (MAYBE!)
