California here we come...

Well the wait is finally over. We have found out that we will be heading to Vandenberg AFB, CA. At first this news came as shock...I was really hoping for something closer to the east coast. The more I think about it the better I feel. I mean they really can't move us any farther west next time we move. We have been looking at houses in the area and will be meeting with an agent in November. I've heard that it is in the middle of wine country. The weather stays at 70 degrees year round and it has a beach so I really can't complain. :) Here is a link to the town

Rogue was a bumblebee. (Lola did not like her costume, she was a pig)

Anywho, I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween! We did. Besides the fact that I was sick and couldn't really talk (yes, again). We decided to channel our inner nerd and goes as the Hogwartz crew. Jeremy went as Harry Potter and I as Hermione. Our costumes turned out really cute. J even entered a costume contest at work and won for his building. Now that my camera has been repaired I can post pictures!

October was also Kalun and Zahira's wedding. We had a great time! The wedding was at the Wynn and it was very pretty! The bachelorette party Amy and I planned turned out amazing! All the girls had a great time!

Hello Hello

Hmmm...what have we been up to?? ALOT. I was in my classroom getting things ready for the first part of august...My sister has been keeping me company this summer as well. She is leaving to go back home on Friday. Im sad but happy for her. My birthday was awesome. J arranged for a me to have a massage that day. It was A-m-a-z-i-n-g. Then a whole bunch of us went to outback and then to this lil club called Rumors in Ogden. Fun Times:)

Now what I have been up to!

Hello again!

I feel like I have been going since we got back from the trip. After the trip, my family came to visit. On Friday, we went white-water rafting. That was an adventure! The river was flowing very fast because of all the snow melt. I just screamed the entire time we hit any rapids and just held on. We had the stinky hippy guy take us down the river. He was an excellent raft guide just smelly. "It's a way of life" he said.

All of us on our raft.

My sister is here now! We have been having a great time. We went on a hike with my friends up to Waterfall Canyon. OH MY! Now I thought I was in pretty good shape...but this hike kicked our butts! It was a steep incline all the way to the waterfall. When we got to the waterfall we all screamed "WE MADE IT"!! It was a good time.

I have also been catching up on my reading. I started the book "Twilight". I read it in less than a day. It was that good! I loved it. So then I had to read it's sequel "New Moon" and now I'm on the third book. It is such a great love story with vampires and werewolves!

I have also been working on my cooking. Oh yes! I have turned into quite the little homemaker. Last night I made lemon-peppered pork chops with veggies. It turned out yummy. I love summer. I get to catch up on everything I like to do!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. We are heading to Pittsburgh next week to see all of J's family. I'm looking forward to spending 4th of July with all of them!


Yes! I have finally found time to update! We had an amazing trip! It was so much fun. The cruise was a lot of fun. Vegas was a blast. Here are some pictures!

Well my vacation make-over is just about complete. Fake hair, fake color, fake nails, and a fake tan. The only thing I'm missing is the fake boobs. Ah well. I went to dye my hair tonight. She turned it black. It's a huge change. I like change. I don't think my students will like it. Oh well they will only have to look at me for another week. :)

I'm going to miss my little students. It has been a great class this year. All of them are just so sweet, fun and super smart little kids. I hate to see them go on to the next grade. I am already getting misty-eyed for the last day of school!!! I'm making them a DVD slide show of the year and summer care package. Another craft to add to my already crazy schedule. Well to leave you with a laugh here are some fun things my students have said over the year:

We were studying insects and one student had a report on the 'stick bug'. So I asked a general question "Does the stick bug have any enemies?" One student raised his hand and said "Yes Mrs. Grant, termites"

A few weeks ago, I was going over a review of the year in science. I asked "Does anyone remember the Water Cycle?" One student raised his hand and said "Yes!! I do" all excited to tell me the answer. He goes "It's evaporation, constipation, precipitation!" Of course he thought that was right so I chuckled and said "You mean condensation!"

Kind of new at this...

Well...out of sheer boredom I start my own blog. I did this mainly because I feel that I'm so disconnected from all my family being so far away. I want them to experience a little bit of our life in the Grant household.

We are looking forward to so much in the next month. We are going on a cruise to the Mexican Rivera with our friends Matt and Veronica. I can't wait to see them. They moved away to Ohio last year. Then after we are going to stay three nights in Vegas at the Palms! fun fun!
V-ron and I last year

So in our pursuit to look fabulous on the cruise...we have been WORKIN out! Almost every far both J and I have lost 9lbs. Pretty sexy huh. Ya I thought so too. OMG we finally broke down and order pizza last was the best pizza I ever had. Ohhh it was so good i'm still thinking about it today.
Anyway, my sister Megan will be moving here in June. I am so excited to have her! I am planning all kinds of fun stuff for the summer! We are going to have a TON of fun. Oh and BTW...Birthday wishes to Meg...she turns 22 this Saturday!! Yay!
