The Indifference Curve

Anna and I have been toying with the idea quitting sugar. Tomorrow the journey begins...

I'll be honest, I've got a major sweet tooth. I consume a lot of sugar. Every day. And it's just a poor practice, so I'm going to change. I just ate a life-saver lollipop, some thin mints and a cadbury egg as my one last hurrah. Wish me luck. This is going to be tough...

Working Man

Spencer's been out of town for work since Sunday. Needless to say, I'm looking forward to his return tonight. Sometimes it amazes me how much Rush lyrics help me understand my love and his life and outlook.

P.S. The wedding dress will work (with some major alterations) after all. Yay!

Maybe I'm Crazy

My Bishop and I organized a team from our ward to run the Wasatch Back Relay in June. It's a race from Logan to Park City (that's 178 miles) and takes approximately 24 hours to complete. Yep.

Let It Go

A short list of recently discovered things that bother me:

-When people say 'Federal Express' instead of FedEx
-Shoving the inside cereal bag way down into the box so the box is bulging and no longer flat
-When the wedding dress shop promises you a dress in your size and then only gets one in that is 4 sizes too big and the dress has been discontinued and it's the only one left in existence

I know, I know. It's been forever since I've blogged. And I'm not here to say that I'm back. But I'm here to say hey. The giant wedding list is oh-so slowly, but ever-so surely getting checked off. We've got a place (Salt Lake Temple + Old Meeting House), a date (May 16th!), a time (late morning wedding, early evening reception), a dress (gorgeous), a photographer (only one of the most important things of the day!), 99% of the guest list and addresses(well, on my side), a honeymoon (still need to get work off...), and soon (Saturday), a florist. Phew. I don't even want to list off what remains to be done, because if I start thinking about it too much, I'll be in the car with my honey on my way to Vegas to get this all over with before you can say... Happy Easter.

So. I don't think I've mentioned this. But it's a slightly strange phenomenon for two people who are typically pretty conservative with their Benjamins. It's something that both Spencer and I have been experiencing and it's... kind of weird: an insatiable desire to spend money! Ok, maybe that's an exaggeration. And it's not just to spend, but more like to acquire. It's those last few weeks before everything will be shared and and we'll have to consult one another before spending certain quantities of moola. I feel that most of my spending that falls into this category has consisted of things I have either needed or wanted for a long time, or a slight upgrade to something that I might normally purchase. Here are a few examples:

1) My iMac has been so deathly slow lately I just can't take it anymore. So yesterday I bought 1 GB of RAM to help speed it up. This will be triple the current speed, so I'm pretty stoked for the possibilities. I could have bought the $100 version on the Apple Store, but I opted for where I got it for like one third of the price. Yess...

2) Swimsuits for the honeymoon. We are going to Hawaii, after all. I think I deserve some cute swimsuits. But were it not such an occasion, I would probably not be treating myself to them at such a store.

3) I've been pining after the trendy plastic Holga cameras for quite some time now. And yesterday I finally gave in and bought one. The only drawback is the cost of film and processing, but me, oh my, I cannot wait for it to arrive!

4) The deductible on my car insurance. Oh wait, this doesn't fall into either of those categories. Neither planned nor desired. And definitely not an upgrade. Just some punk who did $5000 of damage to my precious little car. :(
