MAJOR UPDATE!! (no pics though, sorry)

I guess I should get into blogging again... I'm not one of those bloggers who have a lot to say and I don't have children to talk about either. So, I guess my life is boring. Ok well not completely boring... So here's the last few months of what's been going on in our household...

I'll start from the beginning of summer. (holy crap! that was a long time ago)

*Jason turned 29! YIKES! He's almost 30. what an old man!
*I turned the big 25 last year. I think I cried a little bit. I hate getting old.
*The first week of September we went to Texas to visit my sister and her family. LOVED IT! But it was really humid but still was a blast!
*Went to San Fransisco the week we got back. it was seriousely just a day trip. It was crazy. We left right after work on Friday drove all night to Sacramento, slept at Jason's mom's house and then the next morning we headed to San Fransisco where the rest of family were staying (which is Jason's grandpa's house) spent all day Saturday hanging out with family and going through stuff so that they get the house ready to sell. And then we left Sunday morning. Was it fun? Yes! Was it worth it? YEs! Would we ever do that again? No!
*Jason's sister had a baby girl named Pepper.
*My family went to Colorado to spend Thanksgiving at my sisters house. Good times!
*Jason bought his dream car. That will be a whole post in itself. He's so in love with it. I sometimes wonder where I fit in now that he has his dream car.
*spent Christmas in Sacramento. The weather was fantastic! LOVED IT! Loved spending time with my inlaws as well. I love Jason's family!
*Right when we got back I registered for school. YAY! It feels so good to go back to school, I am almost done with my associates in science. And then when I am finished with that I will be applying for dental hygene. It also feels good to know what I finally want to do.
*Right after I started school, I was called into YW's again! CRAZY! I'm first councelor again. It's fun to be back in YW's with a whole new group of girls. I am so excited to be back into this calling. I about cried when our bishop came over to ask me.
* Celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary. Wow! Really, 4 years?
*Jason has been busy with work and getting stuff done around the house. and fixing his old car so that we can give it to his brother soon!
So there ya have it! The run down of the last 7-8 months of our lives. It's been crazy and I am sure it get even more crazy down the road. But we are still having a blast! Oh can I just say that I am soooo Sick of winter! Bring on the sunshine and the heat! I am ready for my legs to see some sun!

( I know I say this everytime but I really need to start blogging more. And take more pictures! I'm horrible at that!)

Sorry for the small picture but this beehive was in my parents tree in their back yard. The beehive was huge!! Probably 3 feet long and a foot wide. Scary!! I hate bees. I'm not sure how my parents didn't notice the beehive when it was smaller. They found out about the beehive when my cat was starring at it and my parents went out the see what she was looking at, good thing she didn't climb up to attack the bees. haha. The tree isn't that big it's a small/medium size. My dad was saying it took half a day to build the hive acording to the bee people (I'm not sure what they're called) said when they came over to take out the hive for their honey business. They also said that the bees were making a queens nest. It was pretty interesting. But I would hate to have that in my yard.

I tend to get "caught in the moment" thinking I have so much to do and never really taking the time to enjoy life. (My husband is a great example by showing me how to enjoy life more often. I swear the only times that I have seen him stressed while we've been married which is 3 years are maybe 3 to 4 times. ) I tend to think "well maybe if I do this or that my life would be easier etc etc.." Well my friends, life isn't that way. As I am approaching my 25th birthday I have been thinking alot about my life over the years. For instance, what mistakes I have made, what choices I have made etc. At one point I felt like I wasted time for not finishing college or doing something at that point in my life that i should have been doing. But then, I came across this email and thought the choices that I made back then I shouldn't regret because those were the choices that I made that probably were best for me at the time. And lately I have felt like I need to do something to make me feel better about the choices I have made so I have been getting stressed out or feeling depressed. So one night as I was cleaning out my email box I came across this and I am sooo glad that I did because I felt so much better about myself. I shouldn't worry about the past or think that I failed in life. I just need to enjoy the moment. I should be happy with the way that I am I know that I can always improve but I should remember the happy things in life and what makes me happy. I do have to admit though I still get a little depressed with my 25th birthday comming up. I remember when I turned 22 I cried to Jason. He told me I was being silly and I think I was. But 25! I'm getting old but reading this made feel better and thinking that growing up isn't so bad. I just need to enjoy life and not get so caught up in the moment! Being 25 won't be that bad. I should try to remember these things so I can feel young!

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay 'them'

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. 'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.' And the devil's name is Alzheimer's.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love , whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

First, I was dying to finish my high school and start collegeAnd then I was dying to finish college and start workingThen I was dying to marry and have childrenAnd then I was dying for my children to grow old enough so I could go back to workBut then I was dying to retireAnd now I am dying.....And suddenly I realized I forgot to liveRemember: Appreciate your current situation and enjoy each day!Author Unknown

One of the best decisions of my life

( this picture was taken in San francisco when we were dating. I think this trip made me realize that i was in love him. Look at him, how could you not be in love with him with his goofy smile)
On June 8th marks the day when Jason and I went on our first date. We met eachother a year prior to when we actually went on a date but I had a boyfriend at the time when we first met. I remember when I first met him at my families BBQ one night. I didn't really talk to him considering I had my boyfriend at the time with me. He was playing with my nieces and nephews and my mom was surprised why he wasn't married yet since he was so cute with the kids. Well lucky for me I married him!

How could I foget to wish this boy a happy birthday

29 years ago this handsom man was born. I love you Jason more and more every day. Thanks for all of your hard work you do for our little family. You really are one of a kind and I love how you can light up a room with all of your jokes and you being a goofball. I love watching you with our nieces and nephews because it gets me excited for the day when we will be parents and how you will treat our children. I love you monkey! Hope you enjoyed your birthday!
