This last week has been so crazy with some much going on. I'm beginning to learn life never gives you a break and I may never reach that moment when I don't have things that need to be done or things to worry about, so I better find joy in the journey. Events of the last week have really impacted me and got me thinking of the things that are the most important in life and the many things I'm thankful for. And in the spirit of thanksgiving I want to share my feelings of gratefulness.

I'm so grateful for family. Family that it there for each other always. Family that watches out for each other. My family happens to be awesome and I'm so grateful for them. I'm also so grateful for parents that taught me the gospel and not just that but showed me how the gospel is in action. My parents were great examples of how to be amazing parents, spouses, friends, and neighbors.

I'm also so grateful that family relations can continue after this life. The plan of salvation is truly the plan of happiness! All we have to do is stay faithful.

I am grateful for the opportunity to improve and change. I know that I am far from perfect but the beauty of this is I have so much room to grow. I can only do so much but I am more capable then I give myself credit for. There are so many ways in which i can improve and all I have to do is pick one at a time and strive to be better. I can try a little harder to be a little better and my Heavenly Father accepts me imperfectly trying to be perfect.

I am thankful for missionary work. I so grateful for boys that give up two years to the Lord to share with others the joy of the gospel.

I am grateful for the power of the priesthood on this earth. It truly is amazing that because of that power I have to opportunity to be with my best friend forever. This life is not long enough for me, I gotta have forever with my man.

once upon a time

Once upon a time there was a boy who met a wonderful, beautiful, charming girl and fell in love with her the moment he laid eyes on her. She felt the same way and agreed to marry the boy and be with him forever and ever. They lived a very happy life. Then the girl got a job where she worked much later then she was used to. She was tired and cranky sometimes when she got home but the boy was very nice. He would clean the house so when she got home so wouldn't have to worry about it. Then he would let her cuddle with him. Someday soon the girl will be done with her crappy work schedule and they will be able to frolick and play together all night long, and they will live happily ever after.
The End.

a few random insights into our faulous lives

First of all Colin is now going to the blog sports commentator. Jazz season has official begun, my husband now is partially mine and partially a slave to the jazz games. yahoo.

So Friday was my last day at my old job. I was kind of sad leaving. I will definitely miss the girls there and the feminine conversation. I will not miss the crouchy costumers and my small cubicle. I started my new job yesterday. The crappy part is that the training for for one month and the training hours are 2-8:30, which suckssss! I really don't like it. I got home yesterday totally exhausted and went to bed. I'm such a loser, but It's only for one month. We can do just about anything for one month right?!

Our murder mystery party was a success! I think everyone had fun because we sure did. We all dressed up and the costumes rocked! My husband looked like a legit inspector, so hot. Anyways i think we will have to do it again sometime.
Colin has become quite the handy man and made the headboard our bed and what did I do? well I made the bed. And now I am noticing that the bedspread in not straight and now I am bugged by this picture.
Our awesome pumpkins that we carved. I think mine is better.
