I was cursed this week... I swear it

We are having a marvelous time down here in Lubbock! Well, at least we were...until I had the week from hhhhh e llllllll...o. To start on a good note, I had a craft night. We made the cute mason jar luminaries that you can see below. We got together during Priesthood session while the guys were out. I have to give the credit for our success to "yo gabba gabba." Without that "created on crack" show we never would have been able to finish! We have been watching the BYU games faithfully and having fun with our friends at the same time. Riggs has been drinking his bath water, complete with soap and his own tinkle. We have received killer packages from both Grandmas! We are so lucky. I painted stripes in the kitchen. And yes, I have to paint it back in four years. Riggs has a girlfriend, named Elana. Her mother is my dearest friend, who I would not survive without. Riggs loves to say "Lena" and asks me where she is all day long. Our stake down here had a killer Share Fair this morning. Basically every room in the building was filled with donations from the stake ranging from furniture, to shoes, to baby stuff, to toiletries, to kitchen appliances. And everything is free! I got some clothes for Riggs, some adorable mugs, amazing ugly Christmas sweaters, a vintage blouse, a basketball hoop, books, cook books, puzzles, and picture frames. Sawheet people!I am so grateful for my friends down here.. you know who you are. They are my sanity. I joined a mommy and me music group with them. Riggs is the only bad one, but he keeps the class spicy. Greg loves med school! I get to see him enough for me to know he is alive :). Nah, we get to see each other plenty. He works so hard! Riggs is turning two!! WTFreak. Sometimes I get really weirded out during the day when I realize I just had a full conversation with him. He's getting so big.

Okay, so now that you know that we are functional and happy I will tell you the horror story that is my son...Riggmond.

It all started on the drive home from the park. It was a peaceful day, beautiful really. Riggs and I were singing "hot dog" from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse when I heard my phone ringing. I started to search for it... But nothing. I pulled into the garage and started searching frantically for it. Nothing, until I put my ear up to the stereo and the sound got louder. I then moved my ear up towards the air vent and the sound got really loud. Riggs had stuck my flippin phone in the air vent. As many of you know, having no phone when you live in a new state, with no husband,can be bad. So I had to facebook people to call my husband for me. I had to facebook my sister to have her call my mother so my mother could skype me. It was ridiculous. The following morning, still no phone, Greg takes off for school with the carseat on accident. No phone, no carseat. Now I am mad. I stick RIggs in the front seat, strap him in and drive to school to break into Greg's car and get the carseat. Then I take Riggs home to grab some breakfast before we go figure out how to get my phone out of the vent and Riggs sticks his hand on the griddle. I spend the next 45 minutes running his hand under cold water. You can see in the picture below, he had to eat his pancakes while he held his hand in a cup of water. Thanks Talia, for bring me aloe and saving me from a melt down. As we are leaving the house, Riggs finds my digital camera, puts it on the ground and stomps on it. Broken. He got a timeout like you wouldn't believe!!! Finally we leave the house. I stop at the gas station and my credit card is missing. It is never missing. I look in my purse, my wallet, the car. Gone! We drive to a car repair shop. They tell me they will charge me $100 for every hour it takes them to get my phone out. The next place tells me they won't even try. The next place tells me they have to take the dashboard off and it will cost between $600 and $700. I tell them I don't have a credit card any way so i'll just be on my way.

Well I decided not to get my phone out. It will probably ruin the ac. I got a new credit card. I bought a $20 phone... Today I found my lost credit card along with my subway card and my lowes gift card, stuffed into the dvd player.

To top it all off, today while I was at the car wash, I looked down and my diamond was missing on my wedding ring. I don't know where it fell out, but it did. The worst part is, I haven't been able to get it inspected within the last four months, so the warranty is dead.

Well, I hope that everyone has just the greatest day. Remember... if your day is bad, mine was way worse. I love you all, and I love Lubbock, and I love Greg, and I love Riggs (most of the time). Just kidding, he is my little man no matter how much he destroys me.


Everyday I'm shuff-a-lin...In Lubbock,TEXAS

It's a new day in the life of Abigail Anderson. I am officially on my own in the driest,hottest, deadest, most beautiful piece of land West Texas has to offer. I am accompanied by my hotty hubby Gregor, and a little boy who thinks that it's funny to dump his raspberry shake on the wine display at Sam's club. OH yes, we also have a dog. His name is Ollie, or Ollivander. He is not ours, but he is for the week. We have pitched our tents in Lubbock, and we love it.
Today I said goodbye to my mom and sister, which was sad. First we had the Anderson's here. They drove our belongings, filled our house with furniture, fed us, and did about everything else. We are lucky. We even took them to Rudy's. If you ever make it out here, I'll take you there. It's a gas station restaurant with real Texas class. Then my mom and sister came out. Tam and Tor. They decorated, fed us, cleaned, and played with us. Oh yes, we saw Harry Potter, like five days late, but we saw it. That movie blew my mind.
Now we are here without any family but we are going to be okay. We are sooooo happy! We had the Walkers over for tin foil dinners tonight. We love our ward. Did I mention that Wal-Mart is just around the corner of our house. If you go around the other corner you will see.. nothing.. brown dirt as far as the eye can see. But I choose to go around the other corner...to Wal-Mart. NO, there is actually much more than Wal-Mart. Lubbock is actually huge and really cool. We have everything here you can basically imagine, just don't imagine too hard. Well I have some pictures to post of the move, our fun, and how our little town home is coming along. I hope you like our new home as much as we do.
Thank you Anderson's and Feulner's for all of your help and support. I miss my friends. I miss play dates and bbq's. I miss little Luke. I miss green grass. I miss mountains. I even miss Bubbles and Bear. I miss built-in-babysitters. I miss you all. But I AM GOING TO BE OK. I AM GOING TO BE OK. Seriously though, I'll be okay. New adventure...here I come!


Do I blog about anything but Riggs? nay

HELLLLOOOO! IT's been a while, as per usual. I had to post these pictures that my cousin took of Riggs. You can check out her work at simplytaken.net.

A quick update... We just sent in Greg's application for medical school to about eighteen different schools. We are so excited! I secretly want to go to Wakeforest so bad so we can say we live in North Carolina. So cool.
We are going to Disneyland this week with all of Greg's family. I'm sneaking Riggs on Space Mountain. He's gonna have the ride of his life. I tried to do a raw vegetable, fruit and nut cleanse and it did the opposite. Riggs is crawling like crazy and standing up on furniture. Mucho love!


Obsess Much.. Si

My sister in law Ashley took these pictures for us. We had a photo shoot in the entry hall. I am a little obsessed with Riggs right now. I have yet to see a cuter baby!!!! He is so photogenic. Ok so he is laughing now. Greg got Riggs to go into a laughing attack the other night. I try to get things done during the day but I can't stop playing with him. Being a mom is the best job in the world. You would think so too if you had this babe. We just took Riggs up to the cabin for the first time and had a sleep over this weekend. He cried when he woke up because he didn't know where he was and there was a giant moose head staring down at him. So long Farwell


Baby Riggs

I know all of you have been dying to see baby Riggs :). Here is the beb. He has grown so much. He is three months old now. WOW! His favorite thing to do is stand up. He pulls himself up. It's so cute. He also loves to sit in his bumbo (thank you sarah). We love our little Riggs and he is a dang fine baby!
