I WON! I WON!

Lately, Mr. Bassett and I have been playing a lot of YAHTZEE.
I'm become a bit {obsessed}
Well, the other day, he got 4 Yahtzees in one game!
Do you understand how rare that is?  
And for each additional Yahtzee after the first, you get 100 points!
He had a total of 633 points
I was very put out.
However, tonight I redeemed myself.
I rolled 5 Yahtzees! Which gave me a total of....
722 points!


As you can see, I am very proud of myself

P.S. The other night we went country dancing.
We love to do that together. 
And let's be honest, there's nothing like dancing with the person you love. 


What do you and YOUR love do??
And if you don't have one yet, what do you hope to do??

What do I say?

I've been wanting to blog, but I just haven't found the words!
Do you want to know why?
Hardly anything has been going on.
Ok, that's a lie, but it's what I FEEL like. 
Here is the truth of what we went on this weekend.


Drove into Rexburg to see my hubby wearing his shirt that's my favorite (on purpose).
Dinner at Gator Jacks (a restaurant where the decor is amazing but the food could be better)
Read some more of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Our friends Dillon and Jane came over to play CLUE.
Church on Sunday (always lovely)
Yahtzee with the hubby.
Parmesan Chicken for dinner (YUM!)
Games with Molly and Lane, Kyle and Alyssa, and Brad and Jenna.
Monday morning.....slept in, Hallelujah!
Finished reading Harry Potter (Cameron said he was choking up)
Went to the Gym (Yeah, Baby!!)
Late Lunch at Craigo's/never ending pizza :)
Family Night with Dillon and Jane + finally watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Had the honor of driving Husband to school
Conquered phone interview (YES!)
And so on....


Wait a second, I did do a lot of stuff!  It really was a great weekend and I'm so happy that I had Cameron all to myself (no school, no job, no nothin)


I am one LUCKY girl.

A Good Laugh

While I've been here in Utah, I haven't been up to that much.  
So, there isn't really anything to report.  
I've just been busy doing puzzles, babysitting, going to appointments, and so on.
BUT, I was introduced to a rare musician that you will not believe is real.  
Apparently, my family went to a recent comedian who did an impression of this musician.  

His name is Tiny Tim

You make me smile


You make me smile like the sun, fall outta bed
Sing like a bird,
Dizzy in my head
Spin like a record,
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like fool,
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold,
Buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Oh, you make me smile


"You make me Smile" by Uncle Kracker

That's our song :)

Currently I'm in Utah. I have a dentist appointment, and some other stuff.  
Cameron is in Idaho.
I wish he was with me right now.


What is YOUR song?

Peek into recent happenings

I know it was over a week ago, but can I take a moment and talk about New Year's Eve???
For about the past 3 or 4 years, we've had a tradition of getting together with some of my relatives for New Year's Eve. We eat LOTS of food (including my uncle's homemade salsa.....to die for!), talk a lot, and play games.  Well, my family recently got the game ROLLICK for Christmas.  It's like Charades, but instead of one person acting out for the whole team, it's the whole team acting out for one or more people.  
Let's just say it's hilarious.

Don't believe me? Take a look for yourself.



Oh, and P.S.

Better late then NEVER....right?

SO......Cameron and I have been married for over 4 months now, and sadly we have still {NOT} sent out our Thank You cards!!  How terrible, right?  At this point, who would even want one now.  They're probably all thinking how selfish and ungrateful we are.  Oh dear.....


But never fear, I am still going to do it!  I've been putting a couple together and I can't decide which one I like.  They're really simple and basic (my design skills are not as great as some people).  I'll probably end up changing them completely or creating a different one.


But all the same...
Which one do YOU like??

Just a normal looking one
This is a definite No Go, 70's theme, Cameron doesn't like it :)
And then of course, one that will update them about Cameron and I

True Love and Boredom

I am now a college graduate! The sky is the limit, and I am free!!  I could do what I want, go where I desire, no more homework, no more projects.....I'm done!

Did I mention I don't have a JOB yet?

I am bored. Deliriously bored.  

I keep trying to come up with what to do with my time.  
So far I have.....

Organized our storage closet
Made homemade corn chowder (will share recipe soon!)
Gone shopping (not the smartest thing to do when bored)
Read blogs
Updated MY blog
Job searched
Slept in
Watched Iron Chef (my secret obsession)
Read books
Read magazines
and probably a lot more of unproductive work

What do I do with myself???

P.S. I got a text from my husband asking me to come to his work meeting with him where dinner will be
My thoughts: Go to his meeting? Won't I feel awkward?  There goes my BBQ/Ranch chicken dinner plans tonight.  Should I stay or should I go? Do I really want to sit silently while he and the other people there discuss how to tape someone's ankle or why it's important to stretch after a workout? But then again, it's kinda sweet how he wants me there....isn't it?

My Answer: Okey Dokey Artichokie!

I think he loves me!

CHEESE!

I wanted to take a picture of my nephew with his new sister niece, and when I said Cheese, he went all the way!



Let's take a little {CLOSER} look


Love this little guy

The Past Holiday

The past two weeks have been filled with so many different things.  And at the same time, there was a lot of time filled with absolutely nothing! Let's just say that I definitely got more than enough sleep and and spent a lot of time being lazy.  
But here are some things I DID do over the holiday.


I bought this cashmere sweater (except with cream buttons) from GAP for under $9.
What a bargain!

We played games.....LOTS of games 
Cameron and I have been reading the seventh Harry Potter.  We read aloud (mostly, I read aloud) and it's pulling me in just like it did the first time I read it. 
I've started this book, and I really hope to finish it.  After living in Virginia and interning in DC, I have developed a deep love for the history of our country

We dressed Kenya up in a Santa outfit that Derek sent home from Canada

I spent lots of time with my nephew Carson, and my NEW niece, Natalie.  Carson is the love of my life (aside from Cameron of course) and spending time with him is wonderful!

This picture has a story behind it.....over the Christmas break my family found out we had MICE. Yes, you read right, MICE.  We think it's because of the remodeling we had done.  Somewhere an entrance was made, and they are making their own little hotel in our home.  The best part?  The other night I was doing a puzzle when I SAW A MOUSE run across the floor behind the armchair.  All I could do what point wide-eyed and mutter "Uh....there....uh.....uh...."  I about scared the pants everyone who was sitting in the room.  It was not a happy sight to see my brother and dad kill it with a broom and dustpan on the kitchen floor. 

Derek sent home Canadian tuques for everyone in the family.  The best was when he sent home an extra white one (girl hat) for my twin brother and his future wife. (It's funny because he is currently not dating anyone.)

And of course, the Christmas season would not be so, if we didn't have our annual Walker Family Christmas Party.  Over 100 people, Santa's visit, gifts galore, soup and soup bowls, fun and games, and much more.
What did you do over your HOLIDAY??
