Two words


The Saints are going to the Superbowl!
This statement means a lot more to me than ya'll may know. When that final field goal was kicked, I cried. This is so exciting! It only makes me miss home even more. I'm so home sick here lately. Knowing that I'm missing out on king cake, parades, and all this Superbowl excitement bums me out. At least we will be celebrating among family and fans. Keni... hint, hint. If we can't be at the game, at least we can watch it on a huge screen with king cake shipped from Louisiana.

Rajun Cajun

Tonight I called my dad and I believe the conversation with something like this:

ME: Dad, I am cajun woman!
DAD: Why?
ME: I smothered cabbage tonight and it was GOOD!

catching up

Well, we haven't blogged since Christmas, so I felt that we were due for an update. As much as I love home and being with my family, I surprisingly was okay with being back in Idaho. I guess being away from work, thinking about bills in my mailbox, and dust collecting on my furniture kinda made me want to get home and get back into our regular routine. Even though my home may not always appear to be the cleanest or neatest, things out of place or messy can drive me crazy. Ask Kevin. He has had to learn to fold towels and shirts the "right way". We've kept busy the last few weeks. Kevin is off-track this semester but is taking a few credits online and completing an internship. I've been working and enjoy having Kevin at home in the evenings with his new schedule.

We've discovered a new fun game, thanks to our neighbors, called Things. Perhaps it was the company that made the game so fun, but it is definitely on our list of things we would like to get. P.S. We miss you Mitch and Carrie!

We have been told that snow is in our forecast this week. We shall see about that. If we do happen to get snow, we both recently invested in snow pants. We're just gradually accumulating our winter gear and plan on attempting snow boarding within the next week or so. We will have to post pictures of our new adventure. Wish us luck! We're hoping for minor bumps and bruises.

We are also anxiously awaiting the big game this weekend, the Saints and the Vikings! WHO DAT!

We wish you all a Happy New Year and hope that it brings much happiness and success to your lives!
