About Me

I am a wife, mother, daughter, friend, reader, wanna-be chef, interior designer who always has a project in mind, music lover, dish & silverware collecter, and runner. Plus a lot of other things, but I don't want to brag :)


And she's back......

It has been nearly a month since my sweet Cambria was feeling well enough to smile like this, she has been on 3 antibiotics in 4 weeks for ear infections. Poor girl, both Adam and I had crappy ears when we were young so she is just bound to have more problems :) Finally though, she has started sleeping better, eating like normal and being her smiley, silly self again. It's torture to listen to her scream and cry and just be unconsolable. Anyways, glad that is over. In other Cambi news, she started "waving" good-bye the other day and it is so freakin cute. I'm so in love with her. Look at that bath tub position.....bet not many people can do that! There isn't much else going on....I'm super boring right now. But the pics of Cambria are pretty cute, so enjoy!

(how sad are those sicky eyes?)

she loves the top of that
Tylenol bottle, she will
just gnaw on it like crazy!


Happy Valentines Day!!

So far today has been a great day! Cambria and I went running around this really neat trail that I found and she took a little nap..yay! Then we both got showered and prettied up to go visit Adam at work. Her ear infection seems to finally be going away and she seems quite a bit happier. Adam gave me some really pretty daisies and a sweet card....and that is perfect. I am bummed that I have to spend the night alone though, he has to work tonight. However, nights when he is working usuallytranslates into "nights when I am walking around stores looking at all the fun things I wish I had room to put in my house that is falling off the hill" (not a story I want to talk about today!)

We celebrated last night and went to the Olive Garden. It was really good, except they ran out of high chairs so Cambria had to sit in her car seat....and we'll just leave it at she really, really, really didn't want to do that :) All in all, it's been a great day and I look forward to watching my movie "The Holiday" tonight with my Famous Daves take out :) Happy Valentines Day to me.

Because it is Valentines, I thought I would share some of the things that I love most.

I LOVE to hug Adam. It's just like the safest most comfortable place to be in the whole world. Plus I get to smell his yummy cologne, and I love that!

I LOVE seeing my sweet baby smile and hearing her laugh. It makes all the worries and insecurities of being a mommy go away for a while. It's nearly impossible to not smile when that gummy, cheeky smile is staring right at you :)

I LOVE girls night out with my sisters and my mom...it's just so fun to be silly and laugh with them.

I LOVE to think of new decorating ideas for my house. I'm pretty sure Adam does not love this about me, but I love the feeling of being creative and unique. I like changing things and trying new things.

I LOVE being outside. There is almost no better feeling than being away from all the craziness of life and just enjoying the beauty of the world.

I LOVE the person who thought of boxing up TV shows and putting them on DVD's so I can be lazy and sit and watch them without all the stupid commercials. Right now I am currently addicted to the second season of "The Office." and while on TV shows, I LOVE that the stupid strike is over and I can watch non-rerun or reality TV again :)

I LOVE the luxury of a long shower every now and then. No one ever told me that once you have a baby you don't get to take those very often.
I LOVE being a mom. It is so much more rewarding, frustrating, amazing, demanding, exciting, emotional and wonderful than I ever thought it would be....and I am loving every second of it.

The Hideousness!

So...my sister has asked me a-many times to post a picture of my completely distorted finger/fingernial. On Friday while I was trying to get my car packed with all our crap for the road trip up north, I slammed my finger in the front door. I know....who does that?! You really only hear of kids doing that, not 26 year olds, right? So I slammed it in the door and fought back the tears as I got Cambria in the car and tried to run some errands. By the time we got to my inlaws later that night it had bled through a few bandaids and was disturbingly larger than any of my other fingers. Needless to say, it does NOT look good, or feel good, but I don't have a picture of it. I do have a really cute picture of Cambria taking a bath.....maybe that will make up for it
(Adam dressed her for the bath)


Birthday Boy!

Happy 30th Birthday Adam babe!

Today was Adams birthday, and it was so much fun to spend the day with him. I can only remember one other time in our marriage where I actually got to spend the day with him and he didn't have to work all day and night. It was super fun! We went to lunch at the Panda Garden (his choice, not mine) and then got a girl from Adams work to watch her that night so we could go out to dinner. We ate at Scaldonis, and it was sooo good! I would highly recommend it to anyone if they are in the St. George area :) We split some lettuce wraps and then had some Chicken & Gorgonzola pasta. It was so great to spend a couple of hours with him and just be together. Thanks Cari for letting us do that! I just want to let him know that I love him so much. There couldn't be a more loving, patient, forgiving, thoughtful, generous or crazy man out there for me, we are so meant to be together. I love to watch him hold and be with Cambria. I love how his eyes light up when he sees something that he is really excited about. He is so good to me and I'm grateful that he took a chance on that silly ward Christmas party and tracked my phone number down :) You make me the luckiest babe!


About Adam

He is turning the big 3-0 on Wednesday, so I thought I would share some info about the love of my life:

  • What is his name? Michael Adam Rigby, but all his brothers are named Michael so he just goes by Adam.
  • How long have you been together? 5 1/2 years, married for 5.
  • How long did you date? We met in July and married in January, so about 6 months.
  • How old is he? He turns 30 in a few days!
  • Who eats more? Hands down Adam. We go out to eat just so he can eat his food plus my leftovers.
  • Who said I love you first? Adam. It went something like "You know I love you, but if you ever want to see me you'll have to buy a night skiing pass because that's where I'll be."
  • Who is taller? Technically he is, but I hardly ever wear shoes that allow him to actaully be taller than me.
  • Who can sing better? I can read music, but he makes up the cutest songs :)
  • Who is smarter? Depends on the subject
  • Who does the laundry? It's probably 50/50
  • Who does the bills? 50/50 again
  • Who sleeps on the right side? Adam, it's impossible for me to sleep on the right.
  • Who mows the laen? The landscapers that our HOA pays for :)
  • Who cooks? Mostly me. Adam does cook every now and then, but usually I do.
  • Who drives? We both prefer him to drive, I pretty much suck at it and he gets frusterated when I do it. Except when we are in big cities and he doesn't know where he is, then I drive.
  • Who is more stubborn? I would have to say him, but he would say me :)
  • Who kissed who first? I tried to wait as long as I could, but I kissed him first.
  • Who asked who out first? Adam asked me and we went hiking to this awesome waterfall in Layton. It was one of the funnest original dates I'd ever been on.
  • Who proposed? Adam, I had no idea it was even coming. It was totally perfect...
  • Who has more friends? Totally Adam, he makes friends with the random lady in line at the store. He is just so outgoing and friendly.
  • Who is more sensitive? Definately me, although Adam can be a softy
  • Who has more siblings? Adam is the oldest of 9, I'm the oldest of 4.
  • Who wears the pants? When we first got married we decided that neither of us would wear the pants, we would be equal. It pretty much balances out that way :)

About Me

So, I'm in the mood for sharing...doesn't happen often enough :)

Ten years ago......I was just starting my career of bad driving (in 6 months I had already been in 3 accidents) and those of you who know me, that hasn't gotten any better!

On my to do list.....Find something that will relieve the teething/ear infection pain in my daughter, do some birthday shopping for my hubby, make an appointment with the dentist (yuck), talk to someone in my family and try this new recipe for dinner.

5 places that I've lived.....San Diego CA, Bountiful UT, Rexburg ID, Gilbert AZ, St. George, UT.

5 jobs that I've had......Sales Intern at Alpine Tile, Server at Wingers Diner, Assistant Interior Designer for LDS Church, Assistant Manager at Pier 1 Imports, currently Designer/AutoCAD drafter for Split Rock Custom Homes.

What would I do if i became a millionaire.......Buy a car that works, buy my mom a house with new furniture and a brand new wardrobe, buy a 2nd house where our families could all get together in one place, donate A LOT to humanitarian aids, pay off our house, travel all over, and save some for a really rainy day :)

Bad habits....I'm a total nail biter, always have been. I hardly ever use my blinker when I'm driving. Target. It is one of my favorite stores and I spend WAY too much time there.

Things I enjoy......laughing with Adam, playing and kissing Cambria and my niece Maci, hanging out with my mom and sisters, spending time with my family, being outside, watching videos of people falling, making cards, art and music, reading and vaccuuming. I know, that last one is super weird.

Things people don't know about me.....One of my favorite movies in the whole world is "What About Bob?" I could watch that movie and laugh just as hard every time. I don't know how to sew or swim.....at all. I couldn't sew a button on a shirt to save my life. Although, I think it would really come in handy. My sister and I did take a sewing class a long time ago where we made swimsuit cover ups with matching scrunchies and that may have been the end of sewing for me :)

I tag.....Kristin, Ashley Knell, Lauren, and Camille.
