Life Update...

so here's a quick update on my life... and i suppose a reason of sorts as to why i havent been blogging...

1. I was accepted to my major (theraputic recration) whoot whoo! ... although I am confused as to why I will be graduating from the Marriot School of Business when I am doing a recreational management and youth leadership major i am more than ok with it...

2. I have an internship this fall... the actual time i will be spending down in St. George at my internship is 3 days... 3 days of tons of health care testing free of charge at the Huntsman World Senior Games.. I am pretty stoked to go and work with senior citizens from all over the world for a few days :) but the time i dont really enjoy is all the research and training involved before and after I go down there...

3. married life is great. i love my husband and every chance i get to see him. i know this sounds incredibly cheesy but i miss him when he goes to class. haha. that being said marriage is soo frustrating sometimes! i am glad i dont have to do it alone though :) Gabe and I are figuring this thing out together

4. my momma is coming to visit me and i am excited

5. i know i know... i need to post wedding pictures... i'll try to do that soon
promise.

6. Heavenly Father is amazing. and i forget that sometimes in my life. i go along and think 'wow, i am awesome!' ha! not even true. i am so grateful for the love and kindness my father in Heaven has shown to me, especially throughout this past year. there have been quite a few times that i have wanted to give in and give up but the strength of the Lord has carried me through. i love that

7. my letter to the editor did get published... it also got butchered by the editor long story short i have learned a few lessons: never to write into the daily universe, just because a person holds a position doesnt mean they are qualified to

a celebration of labor...

so... this labor day i broke my tradition of having a snowball fight (Gabe and the guys werent really excited for it and since Lyss is gone on it has kind of died...) and we decided to throw a barbq for Jame's birthday... but since we couldnt find a grill we ended up using our broiler and still had loads of fun. i made a cookie cake, and it was the first time we were all together again since we dropped Alyssa off at the airport in May...

Happy (late) Birthday James :)






yeah... we're kind of dorks

funny how one thing can make such a difference...

most of our furniture has come for free from other people (my brother-in-law's inlaws gave us two chairs and the couch, Matt and Brianna bought us our bed, the dresser and old entertainment center came from Gabe's dad and stepmom) and we are ever so grateful but the entertainment center didnt fit our tv and took up soo much of the living room... i wish i had a before picture but i just have afters... anyways, we found this awesome deal on labor day and went and got a new entertainment center and then Gabe being the amazing husband that he is spent almost 4 hours putting it together while i layed on the couch sick...
anyways it looks amazing and now the apartment really feels like home.



who knew that one item made such a difference...

embrace it...

i know this is SOO cliche but i am tired of people not loving therr bodies...

unless there is a medical reason or youre just overconsuming i don't see a reason to work out all the time... be obssesed with loosing weight or judging others for it...

i love my body... flab and all :)

married life is...

having to laugh because my husband has been sitting in the bathroom for the past half hour due to one too many fiber one bars....
earlier today he swore that they have no effect on him


**beware the fiber bar... i think two is the limit and that might even be pushing it
