Speedy Spainard!

I got this *great* idea to sign up for a 10K (6.2 miles) a few months ago and took the plunge.  The kids wanted to run the 1 mile run and so we signed them up.  James was a good sport and let me run the 10K while he took the kids to do the 1 mile even though he wanted to do the 10K too.  I guess next year we will switch!  It was really fun to run it even though I felt awful at the end of the race which ended up being the barf flu!

James and Violet were a great team (Violet sat on his shoulders and yelled "run faster daddy!"

*I know it looks like all of a sudden I am really into running, but I actually have been running since Preston was 5 months and recently decided to start doing races.*

Budge reunion at Bear lake!

Last Saturday we headed to Bear Lake for the Budge family reunion, we ate lunch, swam in the lake and pool, rode on the wave runners and a "super fast boat" and played corn hole.  It was a wonderful time and the kids can't wait to go back!

Playing in the sand!

First Talk

Preston gave his first talk in Primary, he was so adorable and ate up all the attention.  We were so proud of him!!  Here is his talk...

This picture of the temple was not too hard to draw because I have seen the temple and have pictures of the temple.  When Joseph Smith was commanded to build a temple he had never seen a temple and did not have a picture of one.  Church members wondered what the temple should be made of.  Some thought it should be wood but Joseph told the saints the Lord had revealed the design of the temple and it was very different from what they thought.  Building the Kirtland temple was very hard but brought so many blessing to the early saints.  In the name of Jesus Christ amen.

We have ourselves a hole!!!

They dug the hole for our house!!!  We have been out to see the progress almost everyday, and everyday when James is here.  He is obsessed with going up and *checking* on things, I think I will be more interested in the house once it's progressed to the sheet rock stage and actually starts resembling a house!  I will post more pictures later this week of the foundation, since this is our first house I want to document it all, sorry if I bore you with all the posts!
The day they started digging, do you see our beautiful view!

The kids were fascinated by it!

Inside our hole!

Go And Have A Treat!

When it comes to self-pamper after a super busy week, I've always find having self treatment seems to be the only good plan. That's why on last Sunday, I finally decided to pamper myself by having hair treatment at Sunsilk Hair Studio.
As I walked into the salon that located at Grand Indonesia Shopping Town, East Mall, 2nd Floor, I told the hairdresser that I was looking forward to try the basic wash & blow-dry treatment. A few minutes later, a woman asked me to go to the shampoo area. The first thing she asked was what kind of Sunsilk shampoo I wanted to use, so I explained to her that I have hair fall problem, she suggested me to use Sunsilk Hair Fall Solution Shampoo & Conditioner.
After got my scalp scratched gently and massaged all over, my hair was slightly towel dried. Then, she took me to the styling chair to get my hair blew dry. I just asked for a natural-curly blow dry. After all of that, my hair looked really nice and smell so good. I actually thought it was pretty good. 

As a creative collaboration between Sunsilk and Qiqi Franky, one of Indonesian professional make-up artist, Sunsilk Hair Studio isn't just another hair studio. Sunsilk Hair Studio has 7 exclusive hairstyles which are very interesting! Check out the picture below.

And in my opinion, the salon itself is very sleek and has modern interior. And not only you'll get your look refreshed, by trying their hair-treatment and styling service, but you could also shop for your hair and closet needs. There is a boutique that sells pretty good stuff with very reasonable price. Oh, and the have a cafe, too! Just click through this link to find out more reasons.

So, if you're looking for a new salon, why don't you plan a whole hair treatment day just for you at Sunsilk Hair Studio. FYI, it only opens until July 31st. Better hurry up!

Just Deal With It

Yes, I know it's been a while. Gotta admit it, I've been neglecting this blog mostly because so many things going on lately. Despite all of them, I just know I'm doing what I'm passionate about.

Anyway, we all know, traffic jam here in Jakarta is just the most frustrating thing. Been wondering if this problem could possibly be resolved? Well, I guess, rather getting stress out over the jam, singing out loud with my iPod on is my best way to deal with it every time I drive alone. Not forgetting my two lil' friends who always been there accompanying me through hours.

4th of July

I just love this holiday and this year we got to spend sometime with Jessica and Adam as well as Conrad and Hailey!  We got up and went 4-wheelin' in the morning, went home took a nap, showered and dressed and headed up to Evan and Kelly's for the BBQ and fireworks!  We had an AMAZING show since the biggest pyro (Conrad) of all was there to teach the young ens how to make dynamite out of a whistling Pete and what not!
Ready to go fee-wheelin' as Preston calls it!
