Lego Date Night

Last Night Alex and I got out all of his legos and played for about an hour... He made a little Robot with all the gears and stuff that help it move around and it called it a Love Machine, while singing that song Love Machine:

"I, I , I'm just a love machine and I won't work for nobody, but you!"

It was soooo cute!!!! Alex is so funny. I made a little apartment house with a bedroom and a desk and a bathroom with a shower and a kitchen with a table and a living room and a closet as well.... If I don't say myself it was pretty cool.

Oh man It was so fun. Well today is a very sad day for me.... Alex is such a trooper.... it's month end and he has to be at work from 2:30 until TEN!!!! So I'll be by my lonesome....I watched the movie the BLINDSIDE, now if you can you should watch it.... well you don't have to, but it made me think.... I hope I can show the world be a Christian like the mom in that movie.... She was such a great woman. I hope I can be a example to the world that I feel she was.

Well.... you know I've never appreciated Alex more in my life.... He's an incredible example of what a Church member should be... and I miss him so bad now that he works full time.... WOW Raise your hand if you appreciated your husband more ( or wife) when they went to work.... Oh how I miss my best friend... I love him so much!


Well! See ya later!

Mission Blues....

This isn't anyone I know, but it is a good picture of what a girl usually looks like as she opens her mission call. So here it goes...


Well I think it's true that the grass is greener on the other side. Before I met the love of my life I really wanted to go on a mission. Heavenly Father knew that it wasn't my destiny to serve a mission for the Lord, but to start an eternal family instead, BECAUSE that's what happened. I'll never regret or want to turn back time so that I could serve a mission instead of marry the love of my eternity, but to be totally honest every time I watch a girl open her mission call, my tears well up for one, happiness, but a little tinge of jealously in the background.

I am so excited to say that one of my best friends, Molly Davis, was just called tonight to the Manchester, England Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

And so he lied....

So the weather man totally lied about Tuesday and Wednesday, but sadly enough Wednesday evening it stormed.... I'm going to be honest, I so badly miss the thunderstorms of GA and that Wednesday Night Thunderstorm really did comfort me. I've been really sick, but it looks like Friday is starting to warm up....

Man I love summer.... it's fabulous!

Summer's here!!! jk

That is one dang cute baby... I just found this picture on google, but I thought it totally represented how I feel about Summer.

Juicy Watermelon
Bright Sun
Green Grass
Blooming flowers

I love SUMMER and I wish so badly the weather man would be wrong. HE said it was going to rain and thunderstorm tuesday wednesday and thursday... and be quite cold....


Let's hope summer stays.

A Makeup Post


So you know when you want to post really bad, but then you just get frustrated because of ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the events you haven't posted about!? Then you feel like you have to make up for all of them. Well here is my Make up Post... Sorry I've been so bad at it, I've been really sick with flu stuff so I've just been dead to the world! Here we go:


First of all, I want to give a shout of to two of my best friends in the entire world. It was Jaclyn's birthday ( girl in the middle) yesterday on the 9th, and it was Ruth's Birthday( The other girl that's not me) on Conference Weekend. I am seriously the worst friend ever and did not call either of them until much after their birthday...
Ruth- YOU ARE INCREDIBLE! I am so proud of you and your new job. I've been thinking about you a lot lately and it's just incredible that you are such a woman and you just let yourself have fun!!!! I love you and I thank you so much!!!!
Jaclyn- YOU ARE INCREDIBLE TOO!!!!! First of all, just as a blogger, you're soo good. You always blog about stuff, even if it doesn't seem to be the most important thing... ( like burnt cookies) but to people like me, it is super important because I can now make fun of you for burning them, because that was something I would do. You're just so professional and classy and always upbeat. I just love you two women so much and I'm so glad I've had you in my life.

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY
SO the weekends begin. Last week before COnference Alex and I went down to Ogden, Utah!! He was accepted and went to present at the National Undergraduate Literature Conference! The first person we saw there was ALanah! She's a great friend of mine that I work with at Wingers. I was so proud of her. Her Creative Writing piece was probably the best one.
That day for lunch, ( i was having flu symptoms this weekend) we had HOGI YOGI TERIYAKI STIX... it was okay, but ALEX LOVED IT! He had two lunches there!
That evening the Conference treated all of it's recipients to a DELICIOUS steak dinner at Timbermine Steak House in Ogden. That was probably the first dinner I ate in a while! It was yum!
This is Alanah and I again! I don't look that great in this picture, but Alanah does!
This was our dessert... YUMMY! Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake :)
SO Friday morning Alex and I slept in and couldn't find parking at the University and he didn't present until 2 pm so we went and hung out at the local pita pit and once we felt like eating we did. We were there for like 2 1/2 hours lol.
There is Alex getting ready to present!! He was nervous that why his face look ponderous.....
YAY!!! Alex did incredible!!!!!
So Easter is here and I made Alex an EASTER BASKET!! My friend Lori Shirley, the incredible, invited me over to to make these cutie pie animal easter eggs. I filled each little egg with my testimony of Christ, my gratefulness for Alex, some scriptures from Easter, and more... Then I bought him a tshirt with Guitars on it ( his favorite thing other than me) and I bought him church and regular sockies! He really needed some! AND white chocolate reese, they are the only candy he likes and I don't like!!!! I love that so I won't eat em!
He bought me a gift too! Little Bandit!
It was an EASTER SHEEP!!! Al is so cute, he read me a scripture of the lamb of God and then he gave me this little lamb!
Easter Egg cake... didn't really work out....

MY LITTLE ANIMAL EASTER EGGS!
K, so now for this weekend. Yesterday Al and I left early in the morn and drove down to Twin Falls to go to Schyler and Chandra's wedding!!!
That's me getting all motion sick!!!

THE END.
