Jessie vs Jessica

A couple weeks ago we were setting waiting for relief society to start. I was setting with my Hardy fam including Grandma Shirley.
Jessie was crying and starting to throw a fit and Grandma Shirley leaned forward and said 'Jessica'!
I kinda did a double take.. Like wha?? Her name is Jessie. It was kinda funny.
So this last week it has stuck.
When she is nice and being a sweetheart she is Jessie.
When she is being a pill and crying and pinching and biting she is Jessica.
Oh man this makes me laugh so much.
Everytime I go to call her Jessica I just laugh.
The name just doesn't fit her. Like at all.
I just hope I don't have to call her Jessica to much.
She might start to think that's her real name.

I worry..

I worry.
Yesterday Cody went out on the farm to do some tractor work
and of course Jessie wanted to go.
She loves to go with Cody out and about.
I went and got her after awhile and he said she slept most of the time.
Living here where there are lots of fields with tractors going and ditches full of water I get so freaked out.
And of course I always imagine the worst possible senerio.
I used to read all the sad blogs about people who have lost loved ones or children.
Oh how they made me worry more!!
I feel so bad for these people but I decided it would be best if I didn't read those sad posts.
And i've been doing better. Reading those posts would make me sad and want to just lay on the couch with Jessie and snuggle her 24/7.
So i've been trying to be more postive and filling my life with happy thoughts and not those sad worry-some thoughts.
Why am I so tired??
The last two day I can NOT set on the couch without falling asleep.
I'm going to blame it on the weekend. I love the weekend and the excuse it gives me to do nothing but watch old episodes of boy meets world.
Jessie oh Jessie.... You are so funny.
Lately Jessie had been throwing major temper tantrums. Like literally throwing herself on the floor face first and crying.
I'm hoping it's a phase and the terrible two's are not hitting this house way too early.
We have an offer in on a cute little cozy home. We have had our offer in since the end of July and are just patiently waiting for the bank to accept or reject our offer. It would be fun to be in before Chirstmas but I will be happy with whenever.

Guess what?!
I am doing something right.
Church has been so hard for me lately. Jessie is everywhere and I just wanna go home and let her be everywhere in the comfort of my own home.
I have every bulletin board memorized and I know who is on a mission, where they are, when their birthday is, and when they come home.
This past Sunday I took Jessie out before the sacrament.. She was walking around the foyer chatting away.
They brought out the bread and she happily had a piece (girl loves carbs!) and went back to chatting away.
Then they began the second sacrament prayer and she stopped talking/walking, closed her eyes, folded her arms, and bowed her head.
She even says amen.
We pray at meals and before bed but I didn't think she knew the pray at that time.
It was so funny.
I seriously bust up laughing and got funny stares from others.
But.. It made all my hall walking and frustration worth it.
She is learning how to pray.
How cool is that?

Dangerous Dating Memories..

On Thursday night Cody and I went to dinner at my parents house and decided to catch a movie. Taken 2. Cody loves the first one so it was a must see.
If you love watching people try to kill each other.. I totally recommend it!
Anyways.. I went over to Mesquite early in the day due to a Dr appointment. So Cody drove his own vehicle over.
On our way home I started thinking back to when we were dating.
I was living in St. George so we only really saw each other on the weekend, we usually spent a lot of time together and had late nights.
I remember driving home around 2 in the morning.
Oh man.
Sometimes I don't know how I got home, I would get so tired!
I usually had a snack and a Diet Pepsi waiting in the car to try to keep myself aware and awake.
I don't know if any of you have driven up on the mesa at night time but there is a spot where it looks like cars are in your lane headed right your way. Oh my heavens. It scared the crap out of me. Needless to say I was wide awake after that.
Oh I was stupid.
Crazy things we do when we are 'smitten'.

I'm glad I now live in Logandale and don't have to worry about those late night drives....

Weight Watcher Good Finds.. (WWGF)

I missed WW this past week due to being super busy with family things.
But I remember the week before we talked about there being only 8 weeks until thanksgiving.
If I could lose 1 pound each week I could lose 8 pounds and have looser pants at thanksgiving dinner.
But what if I pushed myself and tried for 2 pounds a week.
I think it helps me to set small goals like that.
Here are a couple things I've been liking..
*Smart Ones Desserts*
These things seriously get me through my day. I just keep telling myself that if I'm good with my eating then I can have one for dessert.
The Cookie Dough ones are my fav.
*Mini Rice Krispie Treats*
Last week at my meeting my leader had some Halloween goodies and the mini rice krispie treats were one of them. I love rice krispies. And to be able to have a mini for 1 PP. I found them in the Halloween isle at walmart.

Homecoming 2012..

This past weekend it was homecoming in VV.
My parents were out of town so I got to go over and help my Sister get ready.
Brooke aka Lorna aka Edith aka Barbie went with her friend Martin.
 Jessie and I stayed over all weekend.
I got to take her to get her hair and makeup done.
 I think she was nervous because before her date arrived she said it was so hot inside the house.....
My parents house is always freeeeeezing.
 She had fun and we had fun helping her get ready for her first dance.
Love ya Lorna!!!!
