Good Day

Today has been a good day.

We slept in. There is nothing like being able to sleep in and cuddle up next to your hubs. I love it. We ate breakfast, got ready for the day and ran some errands. Bath and Body Works is having their semi-annual sale right now, I love me some cheap stuff!

We watched Sherlock Holmes on TV, had hamburgers for dinner, and then watched 500 Days of Summer (my favorite find of the day - $5 at Walmart).

It was a normal, wonderful Saturday.

K and I have some exciting adventures coming up... This next week he finishes up his last class of the summer. We may go camping next weekend. Then comes the 4th of July. We are hopefully going to Yellowstone the weekend after that. Then Girl's Camp for me the last full week of July. Then we leave for California on the 3rd of August! Goodness me. I can't believe how fast time flies, and that June is almost over!

Life has been good to us lately. This past week I was able to go to a book club/girl's night at my friend (from our ward) Holly's house with some of her friends, and other girls in our ward. Kyle has been able to watch some basketball with his ward friends as well. And then on Friday I went out to dinner with some of my good work friends. (Buffalo Wild Wings - yum!) Life is busy... but we love it. We are both happy to be where we are now. Soon we will have to start making decisions about where life may take us next... But for now, we are enjoying living in the present.

Happy Father's Day!

Me and my dad at our wedding.
Us with Kyle's dad.

We are so blessed to have two great dads in our lives!
We love them both so much.

Also, Happy (future) Father's Day to Kyle!
He is going to be such a great Dad someday!
AND Happy Three Year (dating) Anniversary to me and Kyle!
I am so lucky to have spent the last three years with this guy. 

Family, Friends, and a Birthday

This weekend we went down to Utah, primarily to celebrate my little sister's birthday. She turned 9 yesterday! I can't believe it.... She is still permanently 3 years old in my head. 
Anyway, we had a great time, and got to see quite a few of our friends!

We got to my mom's right in time for dinner, and then spent the rest of the night opening presents, eating cake, and playing with presents. We also watched the movie "Eragon" which is Charity's current favorite.

Opening presents!
Charity got a little set where she got to dig for rocks and gems. It was a hit, and she loved it!
Chari said she wanted a Bambi cake. This is what happened. Be jealous of my cake decorating skills.
Blowing out all NINE candles!
My cute Kyle and I.
Silly faces! 
A more normal picture...
I love my little family.

 Saturday morning and early afternoon K and I spent with my mom and Charity, just hanging out. Then later that afternoon we visited my BFF Sarah, and then spent the rest of the night with our married BFF's Jill and Garyn, and Tyler and Alishia. We love them!

Me and Sarah!
Me and Jill!

We had a great little weekend getaway!

This week has been super busy. 
Between working, internship, running errands, church callings, etc - we have hardly spent time together. However, we did have a great time on Wednesday night, when we met up with a bunch of Kyle's friends from the counseling program and their families to go bowling. 
There are a lot of great people in the counseling program, and Kyle and I have enjoyed getting to know them!
Here we are at the bowling alley.

Last night I had to work until about 8:30 pm. It was a long day.
BUT, today I am getting off at 2:30, and we are heading down to Provo to celebrate Charity's 9th birthday! I am so excited, and I cannot believe she is turning 9 tomorrow. 
I am old :)

Also, I just want to say that I love my car!
I feel like it was made just for me.

Happy Weekend, everyone!

Daily Affirmation.

My whole house is great.

I can do anything good.

I like my job. I like anything. I like my parents. I like my husband. I like my family. I like my friends. I like my Church. I like my calling. I like my hair. I like my haircuts. I like my clothes. I like my stuff.

I like my whole house.

My whole house is great.
I can do anything good, yeah, yeah.
I can do anything good better than anyone.


I think everyone needs a little affirmation in their life.
And I really have felt great recently.
I love my life. And I am so grateful for it, and everything in it.
I am especially grateful for a relationship with a loving Heavenly Father.


And in case you weren't sure what I was referring too up there ^ here is a wonderful youtube gem.

Happiness is....

Chatting to my bff's Bonnie and Ayisha on gchat.

At work.
Not the whole time, but we keep a chat window open all day and can randomly comment about things in our lives. Seriously. It's the best.

Also, happiness is commenting on Bonnie's status, while also chatting her about her status.
