Operation Send Fievel West

What do all these pictures have in common?

Yep, you guessed it...they are cute little likable mice. Most would say Mickey was the most loved mouse in the world right? As long as he is a cartoon and remains on hats with mickey ears, t-shirts, mugs, fantasia and letter-man jackets (some people get all wrapped up in the spirit of disney), he is great.

Unfortunately about a week ago we came home from church and as usual Megs, SB and I were chatting in the kitchen, finding the fastest lunch/dinner we could because everyone knows that for some reason you come home from church more hungry than you ever thought possible. So Sara Beth screams and says she saw a mouse run from our laundry room to behind out fridge. We all jump to higher ground and naturally call our neighbor to save us. Lance comes right on over, (he is good to us) and begins his search for Ralphy. He pulls out the fridge where SB saw him run to and got on all fours to search him out with no luck.

That was the trap Lance set up for Gus Gus to not get through just in case he popped out of the fridge. If he would have showed his little head theres no way he would have stood a chance. buuuut he didn't. So Lance went home and we stayed on the counters for another 20 minutes, until we deemed it safe to come down...aka I needed a diet coke from the had to go on.

A couple days later, Megan said she saw Mickey in the pantry. I about died. I'll be honest, the first time SB allegedly saw the little guy, I wasn't completely convinced 100%, but now we had a second witness. Pest control (Lance) was called once again while we all gathered around the counters and searched high and low for him with no luck. again. He then mentioned if we got everything off the floor in the pantry, he would probably go away because he was coming back for something in there. 2 nights later, I had a dream about Feivel. So in a way, I saw him too. Which meant he was real. Which could only lead to one thing... Saturday Spring Cleaning day.

I was so grossed out. Still am, really. This could happen to anyone right....? RIGHT?? But now that we have completely cleaned everything out I feel better. MUCH BETTER. I can only hope he moved on to someone else's condo.. or died. Whichever. As long as he doesn't come back to my house, I'm completely fine with it.

Moral of the story? We should have probably bought a trap by now. Or used the Decon I found in our pantry a few days ago....But this way at least we are giving him the chance to live. We're just saying, hey, we don't like/appreciate you, but maybe someone else does... so go find them. Kinda like the Friends episode where Phoebe and Mike are living together and Mike finds Bob and Suzie... Any friends lovers out there?? Except in this situation we are on Mike's side.

I Quit

I try not to say that. But seriously I had a hard time with that 3o day challenge. They weren't my favorite topics, so? I quit. Now that I have that confession off my chest..

Last weekend I went on a solo road trip, first stop? Groggs in Price to meet Holly and Jaren for dinner. SO fun. Love those two. They are adorable. Stop 2? Blanding to visit Heather and Jeremy and their kiddies. Have I mentioned that I missed my sisters who all got together and decided they would leave within 3 months of each other? Anyway, I love road trips. It doesn't matter where I'm going, just matters that I'M GOING. I don't remember driving anywhere more than 2 hours away by myself, which is definitely not as fun, but there is something about being alone, singing your heart out to all your old cds (broke out the old leather bound book of my mix's) while sipping slowly on diet coke.

Unfortunately I didn't take as many pictures as I wanted to. I'm really working on that.

Jeremy took us up to the Lyman's cabin about 20 minutes from their house. So pretty up there. This poor little guy was sick all weekend. Is it bad that I like when little babies are sick a little? All they want to do is lay on your shoulder and have you hold them and I don't mind one bit.

Doesn't he look like a little green frog? Love this little guy. He is tiny and insisted on wearing his shoes all night. He didn't like that I wanted to get a picture of him here. I'm sure with that face he was yelling "dooonnn't" but I couldn't resist. More good news? he said B! for his first 3 times!! Bad news? I didn't get any pictures of Livvy and Cohen. Next time....

I miss these guys a lot, one thing I reeeally missed was Jeremy's cooking. I was looking forward to dinner all night and it didn't disappoint. One day, when I grow up, I'm gonna cook like him. It was so good to spend some time down at the Lyman's I surrre miss them!!

#6 Your favorite super hero and why

Honestly, I feel like like I'm on a lame date with this question. But I'll answer anyway... I think I would be Batman. Afterall, his movies are the ones who made me feel like it was okay to watch any sort of super her movie. He goes around the city making wrongs right without anyone finding out who he really is! So mysterious. I think what really got me were his movies...

The bachelor tonight was incredible. They had me fooled. I for SURE thought it was going to be Chantal! Not that I necessarily wanted it to be that way, but I had accepted it. Emily is just so sweet, until you meet her on after the rose ceremony... Awkward. But really, I like that she is skeptical and not so quick to give in to a whole new life on a whim. She is s a smart girl that Emily. Brad is head over heels for her, but I'm not so sure she is convinced. I still want them to be together. Most adorable insta-family ever.

Looks like I'm going to have to find a new Monday night hobby.

#5 A picture of somewhere you've been

Chicago 2006 - There was a group of about 20 of us who went to Chicago primarily to see Wicked. Jenna, Amber, Megan, Heather
Lake Tahoe - A group of us went down for Spring break in April 2009 and stayed at Roxanne's house in Reno. So. much. fun. I love the Hutchen's family.
Lowell, Roxanne, me, Tyler, Megan, Ashley, Chris

Washington DC August 2009 - Anthony, me, Jordan, Golden. We rode motorcycles all around Washington DC at night. I couldn't have paid for a better tour of the city.
San Diego, CA August 2010 Best reunion with Rox ever. - Roxanne, Megan, Lauren and me.
Cabo San Lucas August 2006 - There were 7 of us roommates who all flew down for 8 days. Ah-may-zing. Oh college days..i miss you. Me, Heather, Megan.

4. A habit you wish you didn't have

I am a procrastinator. Even the night before my very last college class, where I had a test and 3 new articles due (and hadn't started writing them), I thought it would be a good idea to go to a bonfire all night and not get home til 3 which resulted in me staying up alllll night to be ready for my 7:00AM class/final. Who does that on there very last night as a student?? me. I have somehow convinced myself that I work best under pressure, which is definitely NOT true. I have to unlearn that annoying habit. Any suggestions??

Aren't Saturday's the greatest? Suuuriously. I slept in and then just stayed in bed a while longer and it felt. so. good. I then did some laundry and cleaned and went on a run outside. It wasn't as sunny as I had hoped, I need all the color I can get, but still warm enough to excuse myself from the gym. Just so you know, Girl Scout Cookies (Samoa's) do NOT constitute breakfast and a pre-run energy boost. Next time I'll probably stick with my oatmeal. The rest of the day consisted of wedding dress shopping with a friend, Pizza Factory to go, watching BYU's sad game, going to see Hairspray at the Hale Center Theater (thanks T...) where we were asked to move seats TWICE because apparently we (I) don't know how to read the tickets and find the correct seats... awkward , finishing the night with Yogurtland and dance battles with Dean on kinect. I can't get enough of that game.

Day 3: A picture with you and friends

Megan, Sara Beth and I have lived together since SB moved in in October. This is one of the very few pictures the three of us have together. This was taken tonight while we went to Carrabbas..can't get enough of that place and their diet cokes and bread. If we aren't getting frozen yogurt, we are likely found in the living room playing kinect, on Megan's bed watching Modern Family, and coming up with great jokes only the three of us seem to laugh at. Love these girls. SB is the biggest Jimmer fan you'll ever meet. If you were among the lucky few to be at JCW's, the only place we could find the game on, you would have heard quite the cheering from our table including my favorite,"Go Big Daddy!" bahahaha.

Day 2: Meaning behind your blog name.

I forgot to mention that if my internet goes out, and its not my fault that I couldn't post for 2 days, then I'm still on track for accomplishing my goal. no harm, no foul.

So the meaning behind my blog name is pretty simple. It rhymes. People often come up with nicknames for me for some reason. You'd be surprised at how many actually stick, but this is one of my favorites I suppose.
