A busy couple of weeks

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't had much time to get on here and post. We've had a really long couple of weeks. Last weekend we went to my Bird family reunion and it was really great to get to see everyone again. I realized how much I miss my uncles! And I got to see my aunt Jackie so that was sweet. That family has grown alot and it was good to spend time with all of them. Trent and I played a vigorous round of this weird game that I am trying to remember the name of, but it's slipping my mind. Anyway, it is two polls with three different colored poles going down. And you have this ball thing that you have to throw and try to wrap around the poles. Of course I kicked Trent's butt!! (Trent's sitting next to me and says, "She thinks!") It was alot of fun though. I then played with my little bro. Michael... Needless to say, I won! My other bro's played horseshoes and I decided that it couldn't possibly be that hard to get one of those stupid shoes around a pole... boy was I wrong! I sucked! At the very end of my game with a couple of my bro's I got closer to it. It's hard!!! They were all really good and Trent played a few rounds with them as well. We sat around the camp fire that night and played the game "signs". It was a lot of fun too. We played for like four hours and just had a great time spending the weekend with that part of my family.

Then there was this weekend, which we are still trying to recover from. My Grandpa Bird and my Uncle Jeff and Aunt Sophie and then some of my cousins all race in the Mud Bogs. It was up in Evanston Wyoming, so not too far from us. We drove up Saturday afternoon and then spent the rest of the evening at the fairgrounds cheering for our family. Trent got roped into timing the racers, which I think he thought was alot more fun that sitting in the bleachers. He got an up close and personal look at the cars as they zoomed by. He had fun and had a little bonding time with my Step Mom, Karlee and my Bro Jay.
I got to spend some quality time with Jay's friend that is a girl (not to be confused with a girlfriend) named Dori. She's cute and we had a good ole' time. Grandpa Bird took 3rd place in one of the races and Uncle Jeff took 3rd in one and a 2nd in another. There were way too many categories for me to remember which they raced in. Superstock, Modified and 2 Wheel are the one's that I can remember, but I don't know which one's they for sure ran in... But I was really proud of them. Especially proud of my Grandpa Jack (Jake... LOL!! long story) he did really really great and he is still a youngin' at heart! Love ya Grandpa!

So needless to say we got to spend alot of time these past couple of weeks getting to know my Bird family a little more. Which is really good for me, since I didn't get to do much while I was little (no one impaticular's fault). They are just a little different than what I am use too. I grew up with my mom and was just raised a different way. So change is weird to me, but it's good. I was glad to get to spend some time with them. I love them and wish nothing but the best for all of them.

The best part about this past couple of weekends is that Trent and I got to spend more time together. I love him more than anything else in the entire world. I feel our love grow more and more when we get to spend quality time together. We grow together more as a couple and look forward to the day when we can be in the temple and be sealed together for time and all eternity.

I hope you all have a great week! I'll post pictures as soon as I learn how too...

FINALLY a date with my hubby

So after a few "discussions" about what we were going to do last night and whether Trent was going to be home. I finally got him to agree to ATLEAST go out to dinner with me. So we went to this lovely little place called Country Kitchen where our choices were grease baked food or a baked potato. I was going for the baked potato when our waitress came over, whom by the way did not look like a waitress, she looked like she just stepped out of bed and tied some of her hair back in a pony tail... anyway... she comes over and asks what we would like to eat. I tell her that I would like the steak and baked potato and then she tells me that I would have to have fries because they don't have baked potato's on Thursday's, only on Friday's and Saturday's. GREAT now I am going to have to go for the grease! Uhm I say, I guess I will have a Chicken Chimichunga, no onions. Wanted to say no grease, but hey if I have to eat something cooked in a vat of it then I might as well enjoy what I eat right? So I get it and it's actually good. Trent just had a burger because he just isn't daring. So then we decide that since we are splurging we might as well just go all out. So we got a banana split to share and of course all the toppings, chocolate, carmel, and marshmellow and whip cream... It was sooo good. Until I got home and we were both ill from eating that much. So lesson for the week: don't eat a ton of greasy food in the same night, you'll be sick! LOL!!!

A Little Info

Welcome to the first addition to the Clegg Family blog!! I started this because a friend of mine told me that it would be easier to keep in touch with everyone. So... here goes...

Here is a little going on with Trent: He works extremely long hours and then when he gets home has to do something for someone else ALL the time! So I never get to see him which is really hard, but he loves being a people pleaser and so it is hard for him to tell someone no. That's about all on him because that's all he does is work! LOL!

And then there is me: Oh where do I start!! Work is crazy, some days it is extremely busy and other days it is dull and slow and I HATE being here. But it's a job and I am going to stick with it until I know what i want to do with my life. I know what I want actually, I just don't know how to get it. So until then, I am here. I am still serving in the Young Womens at church and I LOVE IT! It's the best calling I could ever have! We are getting ready for camp which is in a month and we will have a meeting tonight to find out more about it, so I am SUPER excited about that. Can't wait! I joined Weight Watchers and have lost 14.3 lbs. Not alot for the amount of time that I have been in, but I don't think that i have totally taken it serious. I have however, sworn off pop or anything that is not milk or water. In the past two weeks I think I have only slipped up twice and I had a diet pepsi and then some sprite with lime... so not too bad! There is a lot more, but I won't bore you with the mundane crap.

So here is some exciting news! Trent and I started taking temple classes two weeks ago, on the 8th! So we are 4 classes away and recommend interviews away from going through the temple and being sealed for time and all eternity! We are both so excited and have tons of questions (sorry mom!) and are just looking forward to that special day. We have however noticed that Satan is pulling really hard for us not to make it there. We fight over stupid things and then realize what is going on and then stop and just look at each other and we know exactly what is going on. We are going to make it there! We are going to be happy! We will be an eternal family! I know that we will... we just have to keep fighting for our happiness and our eternal goal.

That is just a little into what's up in our lives! I hope you enjoyed my little rant on life. I will try and keep this updated. Mostly it will be if i have time at work, because Heaven knows I don't have much time when I get home!

Love ya'll
