So lately I feel like I've been a little hard to handle. My emotions have been out of control. Lots of crying and whining due to feeling sick, the spider attack, and the car accident. I sound like such a treat. As I have reflected on these past couple of weeks I decided it was time to pay tribute to those who have supported me, listened to me, and helped me. I couldn't have done it without you.

Derek - Thanks for always listening to me complain about how I don't feel well. You've been a great help with dinners, laundry, and keeping our house clean. Also, thanks for letting me play with the iPad when I feel it's my turn. You're a trooper and I couldn't survive without you.

Mom & Dad - In all honesty I am surprised you pick up the phone still when you see I am calling...ha After feeling sick, the spider attack, and crying out of control after my car accident I am so grateful you still answer. I would've never been able to stop freaking out after some of these events if it wasn't for the two of you. Thanks.

Rick & Anne Marie - Thank you for always being so thoughtful and wonderful. Your supportive and encouraging texts always brighten my day. Your recent survival kit is the best thing ever. It has helped me feel so much better and couldn't have come at a more perfect time. The two of you always know what to do to help out. 

My family & friends - After the car accident I received so many supportive texts and phone calls. Thanks for checking in to see if I was ok. Olivia, Kate, and Rach you were the first ones to know and your support was the best. Thank you everyone.

Ok so moving on past the tribute section..time for pictures to recap our 4th of July.

From my ER visit. I love how they will never change my middle initial to E.
Stephen wake boarding
He always loves putting on a show...ha This was for the cold water.
Nate and Derek. Do we love how tan Nate is? Ridiculous.
Fireworks in Sugar House. The crowd got out of control as the night progressed. 
Derek has been kind enough to let me buy him new clothes. 
I think he looks so handsome.  Thank you Banana Republic for your great deals.
I happen to love this outfit. Bring on the job interviews...He's graduating soon!
Hope you all had a wonderful 4th!

And another thanks for putting up with the ugly blog format I can't seem to day.
