Grateful and House Reveal-Warning Picture overload

Today I'm grateful for all that I have.
I went Visiting Teaching this morning and the lesson was on Self Reliance. Now the first thought that came to my mind when I saw that was canning and food storage. But it is so much more than that. It's being able to care for others, emotionally and physically. It's being able to help and serve other. It's about being able to be grateful for what you have and work for what you don't. 
I'm just so grateful for the things that I have. I can't believe how selfish and whiney I was about this house. It is so beautiful and we're so lucky to have it. I'm warm and have a place to rest my head. 
I have a husband who works so hard to provide and to get a good education so he can provide for us. 
I'm grateful for my talents. :) We talked about it today and I just kept thinking how grateful I am for my piano, photography, dance and many others. I just hope to not lose them. I need to find outlets to express and practice my talents.
I'm grateful for Randy's family. This week we went to Park City and it was so fun! We met in Salt Lake City In a cute place called Buca di Beppo. It had the cutest atmosphere with all these old pictures and vintage items. 
 We were in the Pope's room. Basically it's a big round room with a dome ceiling so that you can hear everyone, even those across the HUGE table. This was in the middle on a lazy susan. They have the lazy susan so you can order big platters and share it with everyone. Genius and so fun! :)

 Don't judge me....but the next photos were all in the bathroom. Yes, they all thought I was weird and probably a perve for bringing my camera in, but seriously, this was just too awesome to not take pictures.
 Full on "medicine" cabinet with all things vintage feminine.

 Yes....this floored me. That says PLACENTA...ya... 

 Ya me too ^ :)

sick. but awesome.

So then we went to Park City and checked into the resort. It was amazing and roomy and so nice except for one thing....


Pretty funny, but gave me the willies. The front desk was appalled, but they couldn't change us to another room because they were booked. So they came and sprayed.
They had a steam shower and a huge jet tub. Also, my favorite part was the "Adult Relaxation Pool." Um one word. AMAZING. Nice big shallow pool, bathwater warm with a waterfall. So nice to just sit in there and relax. Then of course a jacuzzi, steam room, and sauna. Most excellent. 
Then, we went to Park City Resort where they have an Alpine Coaster, An Alpine Slide and a Zipline. SO FUN! 
Alpine Slide. 
You're on a little cart and you're in charge of the brakes, in between your legs and you can choose how fast you go.

Alpine Coaster. 
This one I refused to hit the brakes and I was hauling. It's so fun and it was all of our favorite! (That doesn't make sense, basically we all loved it.)

Then the Zipline was just a straight shot down the mountain. It was scary sitting up there and waiting but it was so exhilarating. I loved it!

Then we just relaxed and had fun. The next day we shopped for a LONG time and I got alot of stuff for Randy because he really needed light colored shirts for the summer and I got the cutest Owl necklace. Love it. 
Seriously this weekend was so fun. The food was great, the company was fantastic and the fun was unforgettable. It was nice to have a vacation but I'm so glad I'm done traveling for a while, it takes alot out of a person. Especially living out of a suitcase.
But it was so fun. 
I'm so glad I was able to get to know Randy's family better and have fun with them. His Grandma is a HOOT! She always makes me smile :)

So...I'm sure you've forgotten by now, but we did finish our house. We just have some hanging up to do and painting the lighting fixtures, but it looks TEN times better! Things are still a little messy, but that's just from day to day living.
 Here's some during pictures...basically guys, it was not fun. Basically the devils kingdom is the best way I can explain it. I was just not happy and it was so jumbled and messy.
Here it goes!

 Funny story. I had to shower at the neighbors house because the toilets were in the bathtubs....good times :)

 Ya the tall ceilings were not fun....that ladder terrified me...
