Catching up

I don't have internet at work
I hate looking at blogs on my phone
I love spending time with my boys when I get home, THEREFORE I NEVER BLOG! But leave it up to my best friends to every once in a while suck me in to their blogs sooooooooo then I feel like such a slacker and here I am......
Doing a quick catch up post, trying to catch up on the last 8 months, my first 8 months of marriage. For my memories if nothing else I hope I can start being better at blogging.
Marriage is the best, I fall more in love with Trevor everyday and the past 8 months have been so much fun. I love spending every second we can together and I don't know if this will ever change. Trevor spoiled me on my birthday and made my dreams come true. He got me a sweet little puppy, Meet Chipper. The love of my life, my child, way too spoiled, trouble maker, and my slice of heaven for now. In a nutshell, I am obsessed with my little Chipper who is not so little anymore. He is growing way to fast but it doesn't stop me from cuddling with him as much as I can. It is a good thing Trevor loves him just as much as me or I would be in trouble. He goes everywhere with us, at least everywhere he is allowed to go. His favorite places are the petstore, the ballpark, and Tanner park (off leash dog park) if you haven't taken your dog you have to! Here are just a few of the thousand pictures I have taken of chipper since May. He has grown WAY TOO FAST :(

One of the main things Trevor and I do together is play A LOT of softball. All summer we played on 3 teams and now we are just playing on 1 for the fall. It is something we love doing together and even better that we can bring chipper with us. It gets us out of the house during the week which is something I love.

Trevor started a new Job this week at CNS/Love Air Healthcare. He is working with one of my best friends family and he is already loving it He was really ready to get away from his old job and I think he will enjoy this job a lot more. It is just a job to get him through school and the best part is they will let him go to school in the morning. So starting next semester he can finally start going to morning classes which will be welcomed change. I hate when he is at school until 9 & 10 O'clock at night. I have been talking about going back to school for almost a year now. I had geared up to take the gMAT then I got sick. I am feeling much better now and I am recommiting to starting my MBA sometime soon.

This summer has been very layed back and unfortunatley no big vacations have been involved. We did sneak away for a surprise vacation to Arizona for Trevs birthday. We got to watch the Braves play and Trevor's favorite player Chipper Jones (yes this is who our dog is named after). It was a lot of fun and since then we haven't been anywhere far away. We are trying to save money so we can get into a house so we have just done stay-cations this summer. A lot of camping & cabin trips. I managed to fit in a mini St. George trip with my girls. We are hoping to do something big for our 1 year anniversary in December, can you believe it is almost December!!! Almost 1 year of marriage down and many more to come. Marriage is the best and I honestly can't tell you how grateful I am for Trevor. He makes me one happy woman! Here are a few pictures from my adventures the last few months.

Laying out with friends whenever possible was a must this summer. And we tried to do girls nights/ lunches when we could. I love my besties.

A lot of family time has been great!

My brithday suprises! My puppy and Dinner at the Roof. I got SPOILED :)

I even got to babysit these two one, My nephew and BFF's little one.

Brophy Cabin was a blast! We actually get to go up next weekend and I can't wait to blog about it!

Many date nights with my handsome man and a little too much shopping for new datenight outfits :) 

I have spent as much tim as possible with my neices and nephews, they are the loves of my life. Seriously look how adorable they are!

Not enough bike rides with Kal :( 
Ruth's diner, going out for meals has become a hobby we need to stop spending so much on that it is getting a little out of control we love trying new places....

At Lagoon we won as many toys as we could for chipper, he loves stuffed animals! 
Girls trip to St. George was a blast. I love Erin and my new friend Sharla who Erin introduced me too. We had fun doing make overs and relaxing at the pool. I can't wait to do it again!

Of course it is wedding season, this little man is always styling. Look at that bow tie. I love him!

Taking chipper to the dog park or to play with friends is a must. Erin's dog Leonard and my dog Chipper were instant buddies. They loved playing, many more play dates to come!
 And my most recent adventure today was GEO Caching! SOOOO much fun!!! Tori introduced me, it was a lot of hiking but we found 1 and got to sign our names. I can't wait to do it again, Tori will always be a great friend and I am glad I could spend some time with her. We also had lunch at Blue Lemon, it was ok. I would go again but maybe I didn't pick the best thing on the menu?

Well that my friends is that last months of my life in a nutshell. My next post will be about my wedding day. I have all my pictures and I love remembering that day!

Married Life

Oh married life is wonderful, don't listen to what other people say. My whole engagement I can't tell you how much negativity I heard about marriage... I knew Trev and I would be fine but it got really frustrating. Of course it will be hard just like it's hard to live with your siblings growing up, and how in college you sometimes you had that one hard roommate... I am sure marriage will have all those little moments of frustration. But if both people try to be selfless and serve each other it helps a whole lot! It's so easy for me right now... I mean I love doing his dishes and laundry and picking up his wet towel off the bed... I am sure this is part of the "newlywed" stage and it doesn't annoy me... but I hope I can always be kind and tolerant of all the little things that have potential to "bug" someone. It is so great taking care of each other, I think we are a great team and it is so great learning more about each other everyday.
I love cooking!! For now I try one new recipe a week because it is all I have time for. I am studying for the GMAT and I go to prep courses 3 times a week so life has not slowed down that is for sure, I don't think it ever will.... but that is ok.
The wedding was perfect, the honeymoon was a dream, and I love playing house with my husband. I can't wait to blog about the wedding but I really want to wait until I get my pictures back from my photographer.....TIP... if any brides are worried about their groom seeing them in their dress before the wedding day DONT BE we got such great pictures doing groomals and on the wedding day it isn't as relaxing, so I recommend getting over your groom seeing you he still thinks your beautiful the day of and pictures last FOREVER!

Yes we are on our honeymoon and YES I am blogging. The thing is the second the sun hits my face I wake up no matter how late we go to bed. It was a late night last night and of course I am still up and the crack of dawn. So instead of wake Trev up like I do every morning I decided to blog! I am so excited to start blogging about our family we have just started. Our wedding day was the best day of my life. I guess I just didn't realize how perfect it would be. I just lay in bed and think about it every night, it was so much fun! Thank you everyone for your support it is amazing to see your friends and family there on that important day it meant so much to us we can't even explain it in words. Mexico is amazing! I can't wait to get back and blog about it! I love having a husband, Trev is so amazing I love him more everyday. He is so sweet and I really don't even know how I got so lucky! I am excited to be back in the blogging world for real and keep up on everyone's lives!!!

Wedding planning... but wait

I have been such a bad blogger! Not only am I wedding planning but I got engaged as well. It was perfect, everything I have ever dreamed of. I knew it would be coming in the next few months but I had no idea it would all happen so soon. Trevor asked my dad and got the ring all without me knowing, which is what I always wanted. Not to know it was coming and he got me good. It was a beautiful day, Labor day actually and we both had the day off work. Trevor told me that we would be going to a BBQ at his brothers house. On his way to pick me up he said his car died so I went out to my car to pick him up and this is what I found...

I was so shocked, I can't even explain how many beats my heart skipped. I knew it was happening and I had never felt so happy. Along with the letter telling me nothing was wrong with his car he had another letter and when I opened it up it had the word WILL.... then trevor wrote a bunch of things with the word WIll, he said he WILL always take care of me and WILL never hurt me and a whole bunch of other sweet things. From there Trev led me on a little scavenger hunt to all of the places that mean something to us. 1st place was boondocks, this was the first date Trevor and I ever went on. He took me there our senior year of high school. It was such a blast, then when he got home from his mission we went again on one of our first dates. When I got there his brother was waiting with a rose and another envelope but he said I had to beat him for it. So I took a few minutes and dominated him at basketball (he didn't know I played) then I got my next letter that said YOU.

The things he wrote were so sweet and thoughtful, the next place he let me to was Bucca De Beppo our favorite place to eat dinner. Then his sister in law was waiting and gave me the next letter that read MARRY.
Obviously I knew what was going on, the next place was my home address. I can't explain to you at this point the emotion I felt. I cried the whole way to my house, I think this may have been the first time I have ever cried because I was so happy. I never thought I would feel this again, I never thought it would be this special. All I could think was this is exactly how I am suppose to feel, this is the start to the best days of my life. So after getting all my letters I showed up to my house, I went inside and it was dark and then my dog was waiting by the back door so I knew he was out there.

When I walked off my back porch this is what I saw :) (and no I did not stop and take this picture)

Then it went a little like this...

My perfect dream come true, and the ring is even more perfect. Exactly what I wanted :) even more beautiful than I imagined.

Oh he is the man of my dreams. Trevor and I have dated a long time and it wasn't always perfect we went through a lot and it took me a long time to let me guard down and let myself fall completely in love with him. But now that it is this way I fall more in love with him everyday. I am so excited to marry him and being engaged has been so much fun, planning this wedding has been the best time of my life. I honestly can't wait to start this new chapter. I know if some of you have read my blog you may have remembered my goodbye post almost 2 years ago, I just want you to know that no matter how hard life gets and even when you don't think it will get better.. it does. I never imagined I could be this happy but now I feel crazy for ever thinking that way. So stay strong! 

As for now I have a lot more updates coming, Oh and I get married in 80 days no big deal :)

Weekend Fun!

 The 4th of July weekend this year was very eventful, we partied all weekend! Saturday all my nieces came over and we had the best water day you could have with out a real pool. We were slip and sliding, having water fights, and best of all just had a really good time as a family. I love my nieces and nephew so much! Sadly Vanessa and Jon and baby Isaiah could not be with us this weekend they were with Jon's family but we still had a great time!

I can't believe how big all of my nieces are getting, it's sad how fast they are growing up but it is so fun to watch them go through all these different stages in life. 

After a fun day in the sun, we headed off to the Brophy cabin for the night. The Brophy's are so kind and always have an open door, I am glad they let Trev and I come and barge in on their family affair. The cabin was beautiful they have done such a great job. It is in such a great location about 30 mins from Strawberry Resevior. The best part is all the dogs are welcome at the cabin! There were 6 dogs up there, and I got to see my 2 nephews Oscy and Lenny! We had a fun time 4-wheeling and exploring and just being able to hang out and chat with everyone! It doesn't matter what you do with the Brophy's you know its going to be a good time! I love them all so much!

Then it was off to more firework and Murray park. Our cousins have made it tradition to go there every year. We had a bbq then stayed for firework. It wasn't the most amazing firework show but at least we had the opportunity to see some fireworks. I love living in the country and I am proud to me and American!!!

After having a short work week because of the holiday it felt like this weekend came so fast! Mal hosted a glitter toe party mid-week and before I knew it the weekend was here!

We celebrated Mads birthday dinner friday night! It was great that Erin could be in town for all of these fun times, but we missed Kels!

Then to end the weekend we had Erin's baby shower. She is having a baby boy that they will be naming Liam ( I love all of Erin's baby names)!
Mal put a lot of work into the shower and that is why it turned out so cute! I like being the one to put the work into having it my house and everyone else can do the work of making it cute that isn't my strong point. But all the girls helped out making yummy desserts and Mads had the idea of this cute clothes line! It was a lot of fun to be with all of our friends and celebrate such a fun time in Erin's life. It's crazy to think that one day I will be having bridal and baby shower for myself. I am so use to helping throw them for everyone else I forgot that I am suppose to get around to it too someday... silly me I better start working on one of those.

I am so blessed, I love my family and friends so much. Sometimes it's so easy to get caught up in life and let it bring you down. Sometimes I start to feel sorry for myself and it's good to take a step back and truly count your blessing. I have nothing to complain about and I hope that I can be more grateful for everything I have and always remember how lucky I am to have all these people that I love and care about and they may even love me a little too :).  I hope everyone is having a great summer and keep up the fun, before we know it winter will be here ...... so go on vacation and stay out in the sun too long!

Love ya!
