megan's mind

Today, I started my new degree program.  ELEMENTARY EDUCATION.  Which, I'm totally psyched about.  I want to teach Kindergarten mostly.  I'm a big fan of the little'uns.  I just love playing and teaching the little kids.  Getting to teach them to read, write, do basic math.  It'll be fantastic in 4-5 years when I get my degree done. 

I hate Facebook during election season.  There, I said it.  I don't care if you support Romney, I don't care if you support Obama, I don't care if you're a Nader or Ron Paul person. All I really want to do is stalk your pictures and status updates.  There, I said that too.   No matter what you put on your Facebook, whether it makes you look totally stupid and ridiculous or not, I don't care.  I just want to find out what is happening in your life a million miles away from me.  Also, I love Facebook for the fact that it has made my nosiness socially acceptable.  For that, I thank you Mark Zuckerburg. You've forever made my life easier.

For the last few weeks, I've been super sick.  I'd just get a bad stomach ache, some cramps here and there.  I figured it was nothing serious.  Then, the last few days, it's been nearly unbearable.  To the point where I hadn't eaten or drinken (I don't think that's a word...oh well) anything for almost 1 1/2 days simply because it would make me sick.  After a few days of uncontrollable throwing up (tmi?  Oh well...) I finally went to the doctor.  And it is looking like I'm gonna need to get my gallbladder out soon.  Tomorrow I get an ultrasound to look for any gallstones.  If they don't see any, then I get a Hida Scan.  Basically, I lay on a table for almost 2 hours while they inject my gallbladder with dye, then watch and see if my gallbladder can get all of the dye out. 

If you can't tell by this post I'm basically losing my mind.  My poor husband has been dealing with my persistent moodiness, as has my poor mother.  I really don't know how they put up with me.  I'm a lucky girl.  With so many things happening and so many things to do (i.e. clean our room, clean the living room, put laundry away, dust, vacuum....) I'm sitting on my computer. 

However, I did get my homework for my math for elementary education teachers and education class finished tonight.  It's the small victories, people.

instagram update

1. The really non-awesome sauce ice cream cone from the Diamondville Arctic Circle...seriously, who taught them to make a cone?  It's a travesty, I tell you. 

2.  This is my in-laws cutest little new puppy ever.  He's a chihuahua/yorkie mix.  SO CUTE I COULD DIE!!!  I can't wait until I get to meet him next time we visit down there.

3. Key Lime Pie Mini-Cupcakes.  I made 150 of these for a local reception.  They were delish! 

4. Riley and her Grandma Potter at Don Pedro's in Evanston, WY.  This was our last dinner before she went home to Fernley, NV. 

5.  Riley and I doing bubble art.  Seriously, it's so much fun.  You just buy bubbles, mix in food coloring, and blow the bubbles on to some poster board.  Then you have a fun, perfect, wonderful little piece of abstract art work.

6.  We saw this waterfall while driving through Provo Canyon.  We went to Spanish Fork and met the Belcher's for a nice weekend visit.  It was so fun!  We played games, watched the Olympics and ate such yummy food!

Here's a little tiny update on our lives through my instagram account.  To quote one of my very favorite movies:

"Everything is great, everything is grand.  I've got the whole wide world in the palm of my hand.  Everything is perfect, It's falling into place.  I can't seem to wipe this smile on my face.  Life's a happy song when there's someone by my side to sing along."  -The Muppets

I'll be honest, not everything is perfect.  Not everything is grand.  However, I love my husband.  He is so faithful and so sweet to me.  I hope to one day have as much faith as he has.  Life isn't perfect all the time, but I'm happy as long as I've got JD to go along this crazy journey with me.

today i...

Listened to all the town gossip from several clients at the law office.

Ate delicious chinese food.  Seriously, best lemon chicken ever.

Watched The Office.

Listened to my husband watch the Eewok adventure or something like that...

Planned out what cupcake I'm going to make for the relief society activity coming up.

Looked at pinterest and found lots of home inspiration including these awesome ideas:
 And, I've become obsessed with instagram.  I don't have a smart phone, however, my hubby does.  So, I use instagram on his phone.  And it's kind of my favorite thing in the history of ever.  You can follow me @megan_belcher.

I'll be totally honest...the last few days JD and I have been a couple of bums.  We both just woke up and got out of bed.  And instead of going out and doing something fun on this Saturday, I'm sitting in our bedroom listening to music and preparing my relief society lesson.  JD is sitting in the living room playing on the Xbox so I can focus on my lesson. 

Yesterday we were both sick and stayed at home...doing basically the same exact thing.  Except instead of preparing my lesson, I sat in the living room and watched Netflix with JD while on Pinterest.  I had a sinus infection.  JD hit his knee at work and it was all swollen up.  So we have a lazy day on the couch instead of going to work.  Then we played Ticket to Ride: Europe.  Which was a blast, even if JD did beat me by 6 points. 

It's been a lazy weekend here in the Belcher household.  However, stay tuned for more fun adventures.  I'm sure they're on their way.

JD while going through our wedding pictures: "Freak, we kissed a lot that day!"

Me: "You have no idea how excited I am to not have to wear real clothes to work tomorrow."

Grandpa Hoffman: "So what kind of car is this commercial for?"
My Mommy-In-Law: "Fruit of the Loom Underwear, Pop..."

 Riley, my 6 year old niece: "Are you talking to me?  WHY AREN'T YOU TALKING TO ME?!?!?!"

Also, today I locked myself out of the, I had a day off!  Kind of!
