For family home evening the past two weeks Jeff and I each taught each other something we do often. I learned to tie a tie and Jeff... he made a card....
Jeff did not like that I wouldn't tell him exactly how to design his card...look at that frown, all those Perrero kids can do it!
Luckily, all that practice with his hands at school helped him make a soccer card. He was so funny because he measured out each line perfectly and got really upset when one goal looked different than the other. He is such a silly boy!
We both finished our cards and now we'll just have to use them.

Ghetto Salon

I have been cutting Jeff's hair since we moved to Kentucky. We figured it would be much cheaper to buy some clippers and scissors and let me whack at him. My business is now moving onward to the neighbors. Jace didn't want his mom to cut his hair, but he thought I might be a better choice. I only know one haircut and so Jeff and Jace have the same "do!"

Unfortunately, our salon is a little ghetto. The back deck was an obvious choice because of lack of clean up. Jace was not happy that the humidity was making all his hair stick to him and itch though. My apron is actually for cooking, but what the heck I was already dressed for the day and I needed something to keep the hair off of me:)

I am officially 22 years old. Most of my birthday celebrations was at home with my family, but Jeff did surprise me with roses on July 7th, my real Birthday. He is such a sweetheart. We also went out to dinner, shopped for a new outfit and got ice cream at the Barrel of Fun. (this is my favorite place for ice cream and it is just 1 mile away from our house)
In Utah my family had cake and homemade ice cream. I got a few exciting gifts and I am so excited about my new ice cream maker, I think we will be using it very soon! Mom and Dad also gave me a few new shirts and running clothes. I had such a fun time. Thanks everybody!


I was missing home desperately and when a sudden two week break sprung upon us we decided to pack up the car and take a road trip home. After I took my pathophysiology test we began our 23 hour trek to Utah. With no kids, the night owl Jeff, and early riser me, we made it with minimal stops to gas up and grab some grub. We listened to Twilight and talked and talked. I would drive a couple hours before it got dark and Jeff would take a nap. He is such a trooper to drive through the night, and when the sun started to come up he would wake me up to finish.
Here we are at one of our gas stops. "Boog" our greenish bluish Toyota was getting awesome gas mileage 36-40 mpg!
St. Louis was a scary drive, we thought a tornado was going to hit.
We saw so many windmills I think they are somewhere in the middle of Nebraska???

Once we were home we rested up and played with our families. My family was pretty chill as usual and we spent time geocaching, at the lake, bowling, swimming, watching movies, golfing and shopping. Jeff's family had their annual family reunion. We had a blast hanging up in the cool canyon and playing with all the nieces and nephews. Jeff had only one disappointment, POISON IVY! I would feel bad, but the boys went golf ball hunting down the creek with shorts on...Silly boys. However they did find over 600 balls. Jeff says it was totally worth the poison ivy, which has still failed to disappear. Unfortunately, all the picture taking was on my parents camera and I have not yet got the email with them. Here are a few I stole of my aunts blog. Thanks Brand!

Jeff, Mason (my cousin) and I. We had a fun afternoon swimming with the family!

I just love Mason! He is a little fishy!

I ALMOST FORGOT.... we had a near death experience on the Fourth of July. We were driving back to Louisville, almost to Iowa and I was the lucky driver. It was dusk so my driving time was about up when we came over a hill and a deer was in the middle of the highway. I swerved to the right and thought I had dodged it, but then it ran towards the car and I have no idea how it did not hit us. Jeff was sleeping until my screaming and swerving came. His eyes were so big when he darted up:) He just kept telling me "you did so good, you didn't over correct." I was so uptight and my hands were sore from gripping the wheel so hard. Luckily we made it safe and so did "Boog."
