so this blog goes out to my friend becca who, for our wedding, gave quinn and i one of our favorite presents, a drawing of quinn and i on our scooter....pretty much the way everyone always saw us. on sunday quinn and i wanted to mimic the picture she drew for us, so while i was waiting on the scooter quinn put the camera on the car, pushed the timer button, ran like mad to the scooter and sped off down the road to make it in time for the flash. even though we timed it perfect and were in the center of the picture, quinn was driving too fast so we are all blury. our neighbor saw what we were doing and decided that we needed help (probably after thinking we were nuts) and took the picture for us. much easier, but far less exciting.

so quinn and i are moving to henderson, nevada (15 min. from las vegas) at the end of the month and we are not too excited about it. we are going to miss so many things here, especially our friends, cheap rent, and our jobs. we have high hopes of quinn attending unlv's dental school and if we move down now we will be able to pay in-state tuition which is $30,000 cheaper a year. we believed its a risk worth taking. so to the miller's and thacker's.... we will be anxiously awaiting your company in fabulous las vegas.

i have always wanted to learn how to bind my own books. when i lived in france i became good friends with an old lady that could pretty much do anything, from playing the sitar to binding her own books. she taught me how to play the sitar but never had time to teach me how to bind books. i know that i am not an author or an artist, but i would love to start binding books and make my own journals or start writing children's books and have my lovely talented friend becca illustrate them. (this is the first becca has heard of this....so what do ya say becca?)

so there are ants in our house! i am constantly cleaning up our kitchen floor because if i let one tiny crumb fall i'm toast. i swear those little rascals wait under the fridge and behind the oven until i slip and let something fall to the floor, then they all come out of hiding. they gross me out so bad, but then again i love to vaccuum them up. this drawing shows a girl counting ants... i would be moreso the girl with evil eyes and a vaccuum in one hand laughing out loud as the miserable ants plummet to their death.

So the love of my life left me last week for 4 days to go on the high adventure hike with the priests in our ward to Havasupai Falls in Arizona, and it was a miserable experience for me. It was the first time we had been apart and I couldn't sleep at night. I would keep myself awake for as long as I could so that when I laid in my bed I would fall right asleep (which was usually around 3 a.m.). I don't know what I would have done without my friends here that kept me company every night. I devoted my whole Saturday to prepare for Quinn's homecoming that night, which kept me busy and my mind off my loneliness. I cleaned the house, made coconut bread, ironed his Sunday shirt and bought a new tie to go with it, I made a welcome home banner and bought him a welcome home present (a polo shirt and ice cream maker), and last but not least, I made him a candy gram. yes, a candy gram. juvenial and nerdy yet fun. Anyways, my baby's home and the two love birds are together again. Thank you to all who kept me company and helped me not go crazy last week.

Quinn and I have so many cute hawaii pictures that we thought what the heck, lets post some more. Ok ok, so Quinn never said that and could actually care less if I post more or not, but this is after all quinexis' website not just lexi's so everything will be from both of us I decided...I mean WE decided. :)
