Check it

So, some of you might remember that I have another blog. Have Joy.

My little Have Joy blog has been feeling very neglected lately. I'm sorry, Have Joy. I have been ignoring your needs. I will ignore them no longer.

I am making a goal to post something new (and hopefully remotely entertaining) Monday through Friday on Have Joy. Starting today.

So if you're feeling crazy, or bored, or intrigued, or hungry, or angry, or antsy, or happy, or irritated, or tired, or confused, or curious, or ashamed, or enlightened, or like you have to go to the bathroom (especially if you have to go to the bathroom), then you should go check it out:

Have Joy

By the way, did you know that most people only have an emotional vocabulary of 6-7 emotion words to describe how they're feeling? Test it out. Try and come up with 10. And you can't use any of the ones I used up there. Good luck, good people. Good luck.

I wonder where I get it?

So, I had an amazing weekend. Absolutely fabulous. I'll blog more about that tomorrow, amazing pictures included.

But for now, please enjoy what happens when you get a bunch of Schroeders (or their offspring) in front of a camera for too long. Seriously, my crazy is genetic. And I love it.

Birthday Time!

Hey!  Remember me?  That girl that used to be good at blogging?  Well, I'm back.  At least for one post. :)

So I turned 27 yesterday.  Holy mink.  Apparently life just keeps trucking along.  

I had an absolutely GREAT couple of days...

Friday my boss took me to lunch.  Sweet.  Thanks, boss :)

Friday night I went out with a bunch of girls from my ward to the Cheesecake Factory (some of them took pictures, but I don't have them, yet...sorry).  It was awesome to just chat with the ladies and eat yummy food.  It really doesn't get much better than that. Thanks, April, for getting that together!  And thanks to everyone who came!

Saturday morning I woke up and studied for a bit (mid-terms are next week.  boo.).  Then I went tanning (happy birthday to me!!).  Then I opened a sweet gift from my parents.  Let me introduce you to the RipStik:

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with this amazing little gadget, it's like a skateboard.  That you wiggle.  And when I was in Utah a month ago I played on my cousins (he's 9, don't worry about it), and I became a little obsessed.  Which my mom apparently picked up on.  So she bought me one!!  I AM SO SO EXCITED!!  Except mine is hot pink.  And awesome.

And I may or may not have completely eaten crap (flat on my back on the asphalt) yesterday while I was trying to ride it.  Haha.  And there may or may not be witnesses.  

Best present ever.  And then I got to thinking... What kind of 27 year old mother-of-two wants a RIPSTIK for her birthday?!  hahahaha.  An awesome one, I'd say. :)

Then my friend Melissa came over and we "studied" for midterms.  Or just talked.  And talked some more.

Then I picked up Sam from the airport.  Meet Sam:

Then Sam and I went to dinner with Kristin and Neal...Tahoe Joe's.  Yummy.  Pretty sure I ate so much food I could barely move.  Then back to the Hinson's to hang out for a bit.  I may or may not have made Sam play the piano and sing for everyone. :) 

Then I was asleep by 12:30, and we had to leave to take Sam back to the airport at 4:30 in the stinking morning! Super fun couple of days.  

Thanks to everyone who helped make my birthday a great one!  I definitely felt loved.  Which is a great way to feel. :)  Love you all!!

I am laughing so hard right now.

Tears running down my face. I can't breathe.

She is awesome.
