The Tragic Tales of Nicholette's Phones

So as I was sitting pondering memories with my past cell phones, I realized that I have ALWAYS had the worst luck with phones! Not only is this going to reveal how incredible STUPID and absent minded I can be, but some of you may deny that you know me forever...

Let's start with my first phone...I think I had the best luck with that one, it lasted a year and then I wanted a color screen (could you blame me?)
So I traded it in for this beaut...

...which unfortunately was short lived. I was at work as a Merry Maid in Boise and I was talking with one hand, and scrubbing a bathroom floor with my other hand. Afterwards, I must have thought it was the sponge because after a frantic hunt to find my phone, it soon came flying out of the bucket with the mop water into the toilet. Great.

So then I can't remember what I got to replace it but a few more phones came and gone and then I got a hot pink motorola razor...ooo I loved that phone, I think it was my favorite (but don't tell the others).

It looked something like this...

We had some good times, which included a night at the International Cinema on BYU Campus where I saw Supersize Me for the first time... It was there that Old Pinkie was stolen by a Laotian He-She (I don't know if it was a guy or a girl). And that He-She racked up my phone bill to $4k which I almost had to pay before John ripped the T-mobile people a new one. So that was fun.

Then there was the greener, thinner version of Old Pinkie...
I can't seem to remember what I did to that one, but I'm sure it was very sad. I do remember every two seconds it screamed "I'm dying" which was annoying and the screen wouldn't dim. (I did drop it a lot when I was biking--that may have something to do with it). Couldn't go anywhere without my charger.

And then it was back to Nokia... fiftly three somethin'...

She only lasted about a month, probably not even that and then I left it in my pants pockets after attempting to exercise and I washed it with a load of whites. Bummer.

So after that I hopped on craigslist and bought a cool slider phone from this girl who turned out to be a criminal...

not really but she lied to me and said there was nothing wrong with the phone and I found out the ringer and speakerphone wouldn't work. I paid $50 for that hunk-a-junk! But it's ok because that one just got washed with my sheets yesterday!

And now I'm phoneless.
Maybe I should stick with a landline...with a cord.

Jack's Rapper Friend

We were holding Jack just enjoying a nice Sunday afternoon at home when we heard a noise that sounded like faint rapping. It seemed to be coming from Jack's general direction, so we lifted his blanket to discover a secret hidden deep in the crevices of his chunkalicious thighs...

PS. Please don't tell child services that we drew with a pen on our infant.

Jack's First BYU Game!

So I was mostly excited to take Jack to the game because we decided to stop and get him a little person BYU shirt and he looked just like a little stud muffin! Jack was so good during the game and he handled all the angry yells from the fans really well (the refs sucked big time). I think I took close to a bazillion pictures but I'll spare you...

Yes, I am wearing a BSU hat, thank you for noticing.

my best friend's wedding*

This was such a happy day for me! My best friend getting married to an awesome guy...it's the best:) I balled at the sealing, I think I cried harder than the bride's mom (p.s. tears of joy btw). I had a really fun time making their wedding slideshow, engagement interview, and filming at the wedding..it's going to be a bling video! Anywho, Jack was such a stud at the wedding in his dress clothes, but we were bummed because we couldn't find his tie and we're really mad because we looked everywhere for a little-man tie and finally found one at Savers. Hopefully another generous person will donate one soon:) John was such a sport letting me run around and film while he watched the Jack Attack!

Jack got bored and fell asleep waiting for John and I to get ready for the wedding.
Me with Derek and Jenny Williams!

Jack's New Trick?

So I'm guessing he just got lucky, but yesterday morning I lied Jack on our bed so that I could go get him a blanket. Then, when I turned back around he was completely on his side and continuing to roll over onto his stomach. I know what your thinking, and no, I did not lie him down on his side. He was completely 100% on his back! I have no idea how this happened but I'm guessing it was just a fluke...but it was weird to watch.

Catching Up*

It's been forrrreeeeevvvveeerrr since I posted last, so I've repented and I'm catching up. We are settled into our new apartment and it's great to not be living out of boxes like hobos. We have made a few cakes, one for Vanessa's birthday and one just for the heck of it.

Brazil Flag Cake

Just-for-the-heck-of-it-cake--Mario(John helped a little--not enough to qualify to be in the picture)

Jack also had his baby blessing in our old ward. It was an awesome experience and he looked so cute in his outfit that grandma got for him! We had a little get together afterwards with family and it was all just really fun.
This is what Jack thought of his blessing photo shoot...
