Anyway, I apologize for my absence as of late, but with a broken camera, I find I have no motivation. (Football is actually giving me lots of motivation to blog lately, but I know my audience and therefore won't risk my readership disappearing).
Big congrats to my best friend and sister Julie! I love you and I'm so happy for you!

Sleeping (underneath a table), while I coached on the track.

Hopefully my (awesome!) fall tv schedule will revive me before I reach the bottom of the boredom well.
I did bathe my daughter today though....she was gross!

5 years ago: I had just graduated from high school. I spent the majority of that summer doing one of the following: hanging out with Rachel and "the fat boys", talking to or texting my future husband, and working at Lighthouse Research where I called random people and did Lexus dealership surveys...I was so good at that, one of my hidden talents.
5 months ago: I was exactly a month away from having Natalie, so mostly I was just laying around and reading.
5 things on my to-do list: clean my nasty house, go to the gym, finish my coaching certification, eat kabobs (SO YUMMY), eat dessert (the fancy one that I made last night, which is about 100% better the next day)
5 bad habits of mine: chewing/biting my nails, picking at my dry feet, hitting (I've improved, but violence does tend to be my go-to when I'm angry), ignoring Natalie, talking about myself too much (does this count?)
5 places I've lived: Springfield VA, Draper UT, Logan UT, Burke VA, Arlington VA, (that's all but two of the places I've lived)
5 things people don't know about me (who are "people"I'll just assume this is for people that aren't related to me): I play the flute, I cross-stitch, I bite Natalie's nails while I'm feeding her, I obsessively listen to an entire 4 hour radio show daily, when I got pregnant I really wanted to have a boy.
This was a lot tougher than I thought it would be...who knew?
There are a few people that I've been asked to encourage to blog, so in order to do that....I tag: Becky, Sarah (now you have a reason to blog), Melanie (since you didn't do that last tag), Jaime, Dorothy.

And, as promised. This movie is featuring the Jones Clan, headed up by my biggest brother Christopher Jones on vocals, Alexander Jones on lead guitar, Jeannette Jones on bass, and Nicholas Jones on drums.

I can't wait to load all of my pictures (and video). So far we have done....trip to Idaho, tour of the new RSL stadium, surprise party, karaoke, rock band party, RSL game, etc. I have nothing for you yet...but not to worry, they'll come soon.
Natalie and I are very sad though that Daddy is gone. Someone has to pay for this mulitple meals at Cafe Rio and Mad Greek right?
Anyway, I'm back to watching (what will always be known in our house as the soundtrack of July) The Tour De France.

I have about a billion pictures (some of which are not so attractive, but I'm too lazy to sift), so in order to make it easy, I'll just post a slideshow. I hope you enjoy.

We're off to Utah for 2 whole weeks. The posts will probably be few and far between, but lucky for you (at least almost all of you) I'll be seeing you in person!!!!

In this video she's a little bit whiny (I waited 5 minutes too long of course) but totally cute (to me). We're gonna have a talky talky little girl on our hands, because she seriously does this all day.

Anyway, with all the changes that have been made in the sport, I felt that it was my duty to remind us all of what it used to look like...and what I wish it still did.
Congrats to Justin Srping for making the Olympic Team...I'm sure you'll do VA and Capital Gymnastics proud!

Missing: My angel baby that used to fall asleep within 5 minutes of being rocked and slept for 7+ hours. If you have any information, please send it to the tired woman behind the computer.

Contrary to what we may look like most of the time, Benjamin and I are clean people. I don't mean that we clean often, because in fact we don't, (which is the whole point of this rambling) but we just seem to not be all that dirty. Our bathrooms, being hideously white, rarely show any other sign of use besides my (beautiful) hair (which I'm somewhat anal about picking up), and some water drops on the counter. (Benjamin and I have joked lately that I would pay him to REALLY clean our bathrooms once every two weeks, but he's not enticed by my piddly outside income that he gets in the end anyway...go figure.) Our bedroom on most days only has our pajamas laying, neatly I might add, on top of our dresser and the bed is almost always made (thanks mom). The kitchen is a little bit of a different story, but I think I do a fairly good job of making sure the sink isn't always full of dirty dishes, and I don't mind sweeping so that usually keeps it nice and tidy too.
However, today I looked around and saw filth. Filth that has been building up and no doubt being noticed by other people for a couple of months now, but that I have been blind to. So, its off to Costco I go for my favorite cleaning tool....the Clorox wipe, and when Natalie wakes up I'll even finish vacuuming the upstairs. The downstairs....yikes, I might not be so bold as to attack that today, but I might just have to as to avoid mentally piling on and inevitably making myself sick over it. Happy "my house is gross" hump day to you all......the filth is calling.

I always miss the best smile by a fraction of a second, but this one is not so bad.
