I love girls camp!

So... I should be getting ready to go out to dinner in 45 minutes... but I am just so pumped about the trip that I just went on called girls camp!  We went backpacking for 3 days and it was the most amazing thing EVER!!!  I am so proud of all of the girls in my ward, they did so amazing!  We did over 30 kilometers (18 miles) up and down some ridiculous mountain passes and passed some beautiful things!  I should have taken more pictures but I didn't, I just feel like the pictures couldn't capture the beauty.  It was so much fun and I now have a new favourite hobby... Shane and I are going to backpack often :)  (next year when we get my stuff).  Here are some photos.

Getting ready to leave Thursday

Heidi and I... we were REALLY smelly!

The beautiful waterfall towards the beginning of our 13 kilometers today.

Taking Care of Business

So... I had to set our account to private because we have a blog stalker, and I have NO idea who this person is. He left a creepy comment about how he recently came across our blog, that he enjoys reading it, and will visit often. I have been a little freaked out, but now have everything under control. While I was adding all of the people who are allowed to view our blog, I also added Shane as an administrator. I am really excited to see what he has to say about our life on here! I love him so much and am so grateful for him! Life is great! Now you know what is up!

While I'm at it

I went to china in our bedroom

Us pulling like the clydesdales... we're buff... we love the stampede

This is how we show our patriotism!  Dang straight!

Partay at the chuck wagon races... STAMPEDE

Paparatzi... Shane didn't like it too much

Shanes sad sad sad ankle after scoring the game winning goal... maybe not, but close enough

I had ALL the mia maids over at my house for an overnighter... My land lady wasn't too happy, but we had fun!

These are the happenings around the Gallup residence.  THE END!

Back to AVON

So this summer has been a bit crazy and I have been slacking as far as AVON goes. Tonight I got back into it and dropped a bunch of brochures off to my ladies. I am gearing up to start doing some marketing for it, and I cleaned out our back room of my AVON stuff. It is a lot of fun and is not all old lady business. They keep up with the trends and have something for everyone. Shane always teases me about it, but he is happy that I have a "hobbie" and that I enjoy doing it. He says as long as it is not costing us money, and I am happy, more power to me! I also have lost my mind and everything else today. I am not able to find my camera cord to post pictures. It's driving me crazy. I've lost it, but I'm happy, and Shane is fabulous and has found the camera connection. Hooray, here are the photos.

You will often find things like this and ....

this... around our suite

and always, the AVON lipstick pen. I rock! Mindy's back!!! Woot woot!

Labour Day 2009 = Utah!

I just want to let everyone know that I am arriving in Utah at 6:40pm on Thursday September 3, and am departing Mondy September 7 at 1:20pm.  If you would like to see me, please come to my parents house since this is going to be a theraputic, family oriented vacation for me.  I will not be making a trip up to Logan.  I hope to see everyone!  Love you all!

Today is a holiday here in Canada.  I was doing my mother in laws hair today and she was explaining why we have this holiday.  It is because summer is so short up here in Canada, therefore there was need for a long weekend in August so people coul go somewhere with their families, or whatever, none the less, we have been enjoying our day off!  Next, thank you for all of your prayers... I am doing better!!!!  No more worrying in my behalf!  Finally, everyone needs to come to Canada to experience my life up here, or just see what it's like!  It's amazing!  I love being at Shane's parents where I ride horses, brand cows, round up the cows, drive the tractor, play with the dogs, ride on the "quad" (4 wheeler), hike all around for over an hour and still be on their property, sit in the beautiful open, drive old trucks, EVERYTHING!!!  I love it!!!!  Please come visit?
