Week in Review...

So this was a decent week. Not for any good reason, but it's early Saturday morning and I feel okay relaxing for once. I always know if I've been sufficiently productive during the week if I don't feel obligated to do a million (necessary, but not enjoyable) tasks (i.e. wash the car, laundry, dishes, organized some corner or closet, etc.) Today I'm going to enjoy some time at the gym, take care of my cute husband (who is still feeling sick this weekend), explore the model homes at this new development in Anaheim, and make some baby gifts. I found this great new fabric store, Purl SoHo (purlsoho.com), that has ingnited the creative bug. While I won't have any of their fabric for todays projects, their stuff is so amazing that I'm inspired and I can't wait. Oh well, the local JoAnne's will have to do.

So this week I was fairly productive at work (it's drastically slowed down these past two weeks, and I struggled making my self be busy last week as a result. Needless to say, last Saturday I did not feel okay relaxing!) I really like my job and the people I work with; I'm really lucky. Anyway, I did a lot of yoga, worked on my calling as "ward missionary to the young single adults", started a ballet class (yikes!) and saw a lot of friends. AND kept my house relatively clean!

Looking forward, I have a feeling this next week is going to dddddrrrrrraaaaagggggg on. We're going to MAMMOTH again next weekend and the anticipation is already KILLing me. They got more snow during this last week than they did all of last season! My yoga friend, Ben Do, even got snowed in! (I was sooo jealous!) So here's some photos from the last Mammoth trip in mid-January (taken by my rad-tastic brother-law, Justin aka Hudd).

Jill ... and Hudd - can you see him?

LOVE this one. Kenny, Hudd, Skyler

My handsome husband.

We got Elise to head up to the top! a) it was beautiful; clear, warm, and a killer view. Up top, we ran into (what Skyler's friend, Dave, so aplty calls) "the rockers" - a group of Skyler's friends from high school. They were all excited to see Elise make it to the top, and Elise had one take this photo to prove to Skyler that she was there.

Cat tracks can be pretty tiring when you're learning! I stopped being a slave driver to Elise and let her take a break here.

We couldn't just rest...so of course we posed for pictures to pass some time. (Hudd, Kenny, then Elise & Jill)

That last comment was from Elise (although Skyler would say the same thing)

I love those pictures! They make me want to be back so bad! There should be so much snow up there for us. Hopefully it will warm up a bit too!
