I have to tell everyone how great my mom is. She is the greatest mom in the whole world. She is an awesome listener, friend, very dependable, and etc. My mom is my hero. I hope one day I can be half as great as she is. She stopped by my apartment today and gave me the most beautiful quilt that she made for me. I don't know how I lucked out getting such a FABULOUS mom.
Mom I just want to thank you again! I love you so much!!!

I love Christmas!

It has been so great living in this apartment. One thing I have enjoyed so much is buying things to decorate my own place. I bought this shelf/coat rack and side table at Michaels, and had so much fun painting them. I feel like my crafty side is starting to come back out. While I have been trying to open my creative side I have started to notice one thing I have noticed is red must be my favorite color. I don’t know if it’s because all the time I went to middle and high school I would have nothing to do with the color because it was our school colors-but now I think it is one of the prettiest colors. There are so many different reds to choose from so when trying to pick out the right one makes it very difficult. Well enough of talking about that.

I got me a Christmas tree! Yes there isn’t much on it right now but I am still making me some ornaments. Hopefully I can get them done by the end of the weekend to put them on the tree. I would love to take pictures of the rest of the place decorated but I don’t want to show you how messy it is. Not that it is dirty but I am still working on another project. Praying this one gets done within the next couple of weeks. I really hate filling like I live in a pig pen.

It is Bunco time again. One of my friends Aunt is in charge. So she asked if I could help her out. We went shopping bought some really cute prizes. Then she asked if I could make some festive cookies. We are doing a Christmas theme for this month. So I decided I could make some Oreo cookies with red and green frosting.

Please don't look at the table I have these cookies on. I have been working on painting the table. Once I get this done I will post some before and after pictures for you.

Overheard conversation

Okay I am starting to wonder if I was born during the wrong generation. I overheard a conversation today and all I can say is OMG!!! This guy is 50 years old and he was telling some of my coworkers that he was dating a 26 year old!! Maybe I am just old fashion but that is disgusting. It took everything out of me to hold in from throwing up. Is it just me but is that completely wrong. I am one that thinks wow that is like dating my dad.

I did the whole freak out thing and everyone just laughed at me. They said age is only a number and there is nothing wrong with it. Maybe it's just me but I do think there is something wrong. I just want to hear what everyone else's opinion is about this? Tell me if you think this is okay or if you think this is completely wrong and why. Can't wait to hear everyone's voice on this.

Tagged Twice (bit slow at responding)


4 things I love about my husband- Since I don't have a husband nor a boyfriend. Four things I would love is to have someone hardworking, likes to do outdoor things, can make me feel like a princess at all times (even when I am a pain), and someone that likes to be with my family. I guess all the things I want remind me of Tim.

4 movies I could watch more than once- Don't watch very many movies. However when I had no television I watched Coyote Ugly, Save the last Dance, and Work and the Glory (one awesome movie, now want to see all of them), I also like cheerleading movies so Bring it on. Is another favorite of mine.

4 T.V. shows I watch- Army Wives (can't wait for the finale tonight), Home Improvement, King of Queens, and Scurbs.

4 places I have been- Spain, California, West Yellowstone, and Saint George. (Not much of a traveler)

4 places I'd like to go- Hawaii, Alaska, New York, and Canada

4 things I look forward to in the next year- All I have to say is I would like to enjoy anything! One thing is all the girls spending the night, maybe me buying my own home, maybe going back to school and get my masters in IS, and watching my nieces and nephews grow up.

I tag anyone that hasn't done this.


Yes I have been tagged. Sorry Michelle this has taken me so long to do. What I am supposed to do is:

1. Go to your pictures.
2. Upload 4th picture of 4th folder.
3. Post.
4. Tag 4 friends.

This was taken on Mother's day. I thought it was so cute! Sienna sure loves to be around her dad. I think that is pretty precious. But yet again I always think anything my nieces do is sweet.

I tag. Tawna, Evelyn, Jaime, and Trisha (if I can get her to blog again.)

I am a pretty lucky aunt to have such great nieces and nephews. Since I have moved out I have had a few of them spend the night. They were complete angels. I just can't wait for the day when I get to have my other two nieces to spend the night.

Every Thursday Rheagen and I have this routine. I get home from work at four and her gymnastics gets over at the same time. So I go pick her up and she is STARVING! So we go to McDonalds buy some dinner and play until we decide to go to football practice! All I hear is Tiff watch this. Look what I can do. What a kid she makes me laugh. I enjoy seeing how fast she picks everything up (gymnastics and cheer)!

Saturday, September 20, 2008


Yes about time I post pictures. I have been asked over and over again if I LOVE my new place. Well the answer is of course! It is always nice to be on my own. Thanks Rheagen and my mom for helping me clean the place (it always helps having music in the background to dance to). It is still kind of messy to this day. However, it is looking much better than before. I have two bedrooms and 1 ½ baths. I think the second bedroom will be my craft room/ Rheagen's room when she spends the night. Everyone look at the picture with the table. What should I do with it. My mother gave me permission to do whatever I want. Too be honest I would love to keep it the way it is but I don't know how to get it refinished. My other thought was painting it black? If anybody has some ideas please post them. The last picture on here is from one of my friends. Her little boy made me this house warming gift. I think it is soooo sweet.

Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I have been pretty busy. Plus no internet. I have to thank my neighbors for being so nice and letting me tap into theirs for a couple of days. Just to let you know I do enjoy being on my own. Wish I had time to sit and relax for awhile. I'm sure it will come soon. I HOPE! If I have time tomorrow night I will post pictures. I also want to get things cleaned up before I post. This place was pretty dirty before I moved in. It wasn't a disaster but the walls were dirty and ya that is kind of sick. I don't want to move into someone elses filth.

Check back tomorrow for pictures!

Brain hurts

Okay I had to write down my thoughts. I went and saw the apartment today. I do like it and I am pretty excited. I'm just trying to make sure I can do this. I have done a great deal of calculating and I think I should be fine. Well I know I will be fine. The cool thing is I worked down the price with the landlord. So things are looking up. I told the guy I will call him tomorrow with my decision. I know I am ready for this and I am super excited. I guess all I want is some support. I feel like the only one that will talk to me about this is my friend. Sorry for my rambling but I had to get this out.

One more thing

If I move out. Girls I need help decorating. Hint! Hint!

It’s about time?

I know I haven't posted in awhile. It is only because I have been doing some serious thinking. Okay that is scary especially when my mind goes. Well these last couple of months I have been thinking about moving out. I love my family so much, but I am starting to get pretty old. I also think it is the perfect time for me to be on my own. Also I hope it will help me mature.

I do need to thank my parents for being so great to me. Holly cow who else would let their kids stay at home as long as I have. They help me with so much. My poor emotional breakdowns (way too many of them), let me save my money and live with them, the biggest thing of all they ENCOURAGED me to stay in school and be the first one to congratulate me when I graduated. That sure means a great deal to me.

Well I am going to go check out an apartment on Friday. If I decide to get it I will post pictures.

Night at GRANDMA'S

Tonight was a special night. I got home from work and had a beautiful suprise. Adyson was at my parents house. What a shock! She then told me she was going to spend the night.

I thought I would go to Triston's football practice so I can play with the kids. Well Hayley it got a bit dirty. Why would you send Ady over with white flip flops. Ha ha ha! Well They are not white anymore after you leave Grandma Kidman's. Are you getting worried yet? If you are I am sure these cute pictures will cure your fear.

First attempt

Some of you may know that my mom, Heidi, and I have been taking a Photoshop class at Bridgerland. It has been tons of fun. Trust me I struggle in this class but I think everyone else does. Maybe that is why I enjoy it. Well the teacher helped me out last week. So I could figure out how to make my own scrapbook pages. She gave me some awesome free links as well. I will put them on my blog if you want to look at them.

Well I got to go to Triston's practice last week, and they took team pictures. He told me I should bring my camera so I could take pictures. So that is where these pictures came from.

Congratulations Triston on your first touchdown today!!!

Additions to House

Mom and Dad decided they needed a little change in the living room. The little change made a big difference in a great way. Don't laugh we were watching T.V. of course. "Super Nanny"

Hayley has this on her blog, and it looks like fun. So I thought I would give it a shot.

1. Leave one memory that you and I had together, as a comment on my blog. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments

Rheagen’s 6

Oh my gosh Rheagen turned 6 today. Boy does time fly. As I was thinking about her birthday last night before I went to bed. I just realized I am twenty years older than her. Holly freak she is making me old. Ha ha!! (well I need to blame it on someone)

I am so proud of Rheagen. She gets cuter and smarter every day. I was also very shocked at how well she can hit that golf ball. I am sure she can hit it further than me. I just wanted to write this blog and tell Rheagen how much I love her. I don't know what I would do without my Rheagen. I know she likes to flirt with Tim. Which is way cute. I also like how she teases me. Even though sometimes I would just love to have one of her FABULOUS hugs!!! Well Rheagen HAPPY BIRTHDAY. Here are some pictures of her at the golf course for her birthday. I think Grandma, Grandpa, and Devin sure hooked her up on those great golf clubs.

I don't know if this video will work but its worth a shot!

Oh boy the kids have fun playing with grandma. I got to have so much fun playing with the kids tonight. Well until the kids started whinning. I love them but ... well ya. We played frisbee and it was so much fun when Chase showed up. I hope Triston keeps him as a friend forever. He is just the nicest kid. You think I could adopt him as a nephew as well????

Rheagen had her first coach pitch game as well. I tried to get a video of her hitting. She is so cute. But I have to laugh because I noticed that our family was the only family that took things seriously. Yes we are very competitive. I hope that's not a bad thing.

Thursday, May 29, 2008


Oh my gosh it was sooo much fun. It was nice getting to take my mom with me too. I have to be honest after the first time of doing this I can see why it is so addicting. As we were playing all I could think of was Hayley. I know how competitive she is so I know I would just have to watch out! lol I will be honest I can't wait until I get to play again. Thanks MOM for going with me. I hope you had fun as well.

I don't know if anyone has noticed that I put on a link on my site that hooks into Double T Landscaping. Well I just wanted all of you to know how good they are at their work. When Tim lived in his house in Malad they put in his sprinkler system. I really liked the fact that they put in a good QUALITY sprinkler system in. I would also like to say they have the best SOD I have ever seen. Don't you just love it when you walk outside and you see full green grass? Well I do and they grow that. They will also lay if for you if you would like. That isn't all they do but I don't need to explain everything they do you can look at my other link.

If you live between Pocatello, Idaho, and Layton, Utah, I would highly recommend that you give them a call and have them give you a quote. I PROMISE you will NOT be DISAPOINTED!!!

Playing with KIDS

I got to play with the kids yesterday. Adyson told me the cutest thing yesterday. I was looking at her eyes because they are so beautiful. Yes I'm jealous! Well I told her I thought they were so pretty and she told me well the reason they are so pretty is because Heavenly Father gave them to me. How sweet! I took a few pictures of the kids playing. They were having tons of fun getting wet. It was pretty funny too.

Check out my Slide Show!

The most HANDSOME guy in the WORLD!

I had a blast this weekend! I got to see Tim 2 weekends in a row. Yes 2. I love it when I get to see him. Both weekends we got to drive around on the tractors. It is so much fun and even yesterday we saw some deer while we were driving around.

I also got to take his truck to Logan yesterday to tint the windows! Look how nice it looks now.

Well I took the job. I wish they would have paid me more but I know because I am a woman they won't do that. Sorry I am just SO sick of being treated different in the workplace. I know they say they don't but I can see it. You may be wondering why I took the job if I feel this way. Well its because I have an AWESOME lead and I enjoy what I do.

Sunday, March 30, 2008


Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I have been doing a great deal of thinking. I hope you can't smell it where you live. Ha Ha! Well I had my job interview for the job that I wanted at work. However, the amount of money that they want to give me really stinks! I was wanting more. However, I have discussed this with HR and they are not really willing to work with me. How frustrating. I have until Monday morning to make my decision. I have learned one thing through this whole process. Speak to your management about the amount of money your expecting. With having everything up front maybe they will be able to work with you more.

Thursday night was so fun! The girls had a date night we watched Disney on Ice Princess Wishes. I will never forget this night. Rheagen's face was priceless. When the seven dwarfs came out, to see her face just light up. Was so neat. Then when the dragon came out and saw sheer panic on her face. I will never forget that. Rheagen looked just like Cinderella. Here is a picture of us together that night. Thanks for taking the picture Michelle.
I hope the next time we go all of us can go! That means you Hayley.

Life is getting BETTER!!

I know I haven't posted in sometime. So for an update. My life is starting to get better. Tim and I are finally back together. I am wanting to go up and see him. Hopefully he can go take me out on a trail and go snowmobiling. Do the fun stuff that we like to go do. I will post pictures when I get to go!

I got to have fun with Rheagen all day yesterday. She is such a good girl! I am also very proud of how smart she is getting. I am so glad that Michelle is giving me the opportunity to read with her everyday. That is so neat to see how she is improving!!!

I know our family is having a hard time right now. However, when I think about this I know we will always be there for each other. I just wanted to write this message because I want to tell everyone that I LOVE THEM! And please tell me if you need anything. I know I may be just your little sister but know I will always be there for you. You have all done so much for me and I don't if there is a way I can ever repay you. But if there is something PLEASE let me know. XOXOXO

Fun night

Triston is spending the night tonight. Boy its been a lot of FUN!! We played Phase 10 and of course I didn't win. But Triston did! (with no help from me...NOT!!)
I am just glad I am feeling better so I can do something. Sitting in bed watching TV and sleeping is no fun. I am sure you mothers wish you could have the comfort once in a while. But I would trade you girls any day.
I know I am a very proud aunt but I think I have the best nieces and nephews in the world. Just by doing little things they know how to cheer me up!!!

Sick again. urg

Well I went to the doctor today to find out what was wrong with me. I have strep throat. I am so sick of getting sick. I want to use my vacation to go play in the summer with the kids at the pool or something. But good news I have lost 13 lbs since I have been to the doctor the last time.

Sunday, February 24, 2008


It was Padin's b-day today. The BIG 4. Wow I feel like I am getting old. I love seeing my family. Especially the kids. When I was watching them play I was wishing I was a kid again. You don't really have a care in the world. You fall down and cry and two seconds later your back to normal playing again.

By the way thanks Hay for talking to me today. It did mean a lot to me having someone care.

LiFe Is ToO sHoRt

I have been having a really stressful couple of weeks. As I have been feeling bad for myself. I am learning that life is too short. One of my good friends (Jami) since elementary school is in the hospital. I had the biggest fear that she was going to pass away. They told her since Friday that she was going to die any day now. But a miracle started happening since. Her tumor is going down and she may even get to have surgery.

Jami and I are the same age and I think how horrible it would be to die at such a young age. We still haven't been able to live yet. I know Tim doesn't read this and has no idea what I am saying so I think it may be okay.

I think Tim is the greatest! He has taught me so much. I have got to do so many new things since I have been with him. Snowmobiling for one thing. I will never forget my first snowmobile trip. It was sooo scary and I was so uncoordinated. But I don't think it bugged Tim too much. He was so patient. I did learn one thing. I would rather ride on a smaller snowmobile and a trail would suit me a lot better.

Christmas and New Years

Christmas and New Years was a BLAST!! I drove to West Yellowstone and spend a week with Tim. He is the greatest guy ever. It was so hard to leave. We went out to Quake Lake on New Years and check out what I got to see.


Oh my heck I am just about done. February 4th is my final night! I can't believe I did it. I would just like to thank all the people that did believe in me.
