So I haven't posted in a while because the power cord to my laptop decided to die suddenly. Just out of the blue no warning whatsoever. I am so bummed.

My sister is visiting and we have taken lots of fun photos of the kidlets. Hopefully my new cord will come soon and you can see them.

Until then, I'll see you around :o)

Real Chocolate

Do you like chocolate?? Of course you do!!! But are you eating REAL chocolate?? Do you even know if you are?

Well the wonderful people at Mars Chocolate have promised to always make real chocolate. You know... they make Dove chocolate, Twix bars and many more yummy chocolates.

I first heard about their promise to continue to make real chocolate through my mom. Who just happens to be a Dove Chocolatier. Yum! You see when you make chocolate you need to put some sort of butter/oil in it. Instead of using real Cocoa butter, from Cacao, many companies are starting to use things like vegetable oil to cut down costs. Yuck!!! That's why chocolate tastes so much better when you get it from Germany, Switzerland or even Mars chocolate.

To show customers what real chocolate should taste like Mars is giving away free chocolate. What was that??? FREE chocolate??? Yeah!! Every Friday through October you can register for a free candy bar! They will send you a coupon in the mail and all you have to do is go to the store. WAHOO!!! I received my first one in the mail today, I am sooo excited!

So go to and Enjoy!

California, we miss you

A couple weeks ago we went to California for our anniversary and to visit family. We had so much fun it was hard to leave. I really miss the nice cool weather of SoCal as opposed to SoUtah.

Of course we had to go to the beach that is a must. Matt and I packed up Ozzy and his things and hit the road. My Sister, her Husband and two girls came along too.

One of my cutiepie nieces enjoy the beach with Mommy

Ozzy and Matt enjoy the water

Ozzy had a blast running and jumping in the water. Unfortunately it isn't off leash season at the beach yet.

His best tough guy stance. He is such a funny little guy.

One of my favortie pictures from the day. My niece got a little overwhelmed by a wave and ran to Daddy for assurance. It was too cute not to take a picture of.

Meanwhile back at the ranch...

Just kidding, my parents have been raising chicken for a few months now. They decided they wanted fresh eggs and stop eating hormone and steroid treated eggs. It is amazing the difference. Even Ozzy isn't allergic to them, which he usually is.
The whole pack

This gal was so funny, she kept inching closer to me, probably wondering what the heck I was doing.

And then there is Angus, King of the castle, or so he thinks.

He would just sit in the backyard and watch over the chickens. He didn't chase them, just watched.

We had a lot of fun visiting family and just relaxing. It was very much needed.
