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!

I am ashamed of how long it has been since I last posted. Not much is going on these days! I always tell my friend at work I need to blog but I don't what to blog about. Maybe if I had kids I would blog more. haha. I want to try and make it a goal to blog more often even though I don't have much to blog about. So hopefully my friends or who ever looks on this thing will continue to look at it. I promise I will blog more often. Maybe once a week?? or maybe every other week? Who knows but I promise I will blog more often even if it's just a random post about nothing like what I had to eat all day or how many times I went to the bathroom that day or what I bought at the grocery store! On, well maybe I won't go that far but I will try to blog more.


I LOVE my mom! She is the best! Alot of people say I am a mama's girl and I am! I am not ashamed of it. I talk to my mom at least once or twice a day. We usually go shopping or do a craft almost every other Saturday. She is always there for me when I need her the most. I consider her as one of my best friends. I love the advise that she gives me and I love how she can calm me down when I am over whelmed or worried about something. She seems to make everything better. I love how her and I always stop and get a diet coke at a gas station when ever we go somewhere. I love how strong of a woman she is and her love for the Gospel. She has been through alot over the years and it amazes me that she keeps her head up high no matter how hard life can be at times. I love having her as my mother!
I LOVE my mother in law. (not many people say that) I love going to California and visiting her we usually just sit on her bed and chat for hours. I love it! She is so accepting of others and will do anything for anyone. She seriousely is like super woman. I look up to her so much. I am amazed that she raised 9 kids almost on her own when Jason's father passed away. Every summer she visits us and we make sure that we go to Park City to go downt eh alpine Slide. She loves that slide! She was up here on her birthday last year and we took her up there she wanted to go twice. It was so funny how she loved that. Also as we were going up the ski lift she dropped her shoe and Jason was nice enough to let her borrow his she until they got to the bottom of the hill to get it. It was funniest thing. I love having her as my mother in law.


This is my wonderful neighbor Anne. I like to call her little Anne. (not to her face though, I'm afraid she might get offended.) Let me tell you a little bit about little Anne. She is the best neighbor anyone could ask for! She is always looking out for me and Jason (and of course we do the same for her) She has some awsome Christmas parties, everyone in the neighborhood knows who she is and I never hear one negative thing about her. She is so sweet and accepts everyone for who they are. A week ago, she went through the temple for the first time. let me also tell you that she will be 90 years old in June! When she told me and Jason that she was going through the temple as we were driving together to go to church I almost burst out into tears! I am so happy for her. Next is to get sealed to her husband who passed away 6 years ago. I love having her come to church with us and I love sitting next to little Anne in Relief Society. I love how she hangs on to my arm as we walk through the church. And of course I love having her as my neighbor! (Just look at her isn't she the cutest little old lady you have ever seen?)

P.S as you can tell all these pictures are from our wedding. I think I need to take more pictures.

Grandpa Walter

A few weeks ago Jason's Grandpa passed away. I remember the first time I met him. Jason invited me to go with him to San Francisco for his cousins wedding and I was so nervous because I was meeting his whole family. When Jason introduced me to his grandpa Walter the first thing he said was "Oh you want to help me shave my back?" I was a little speechless but thought it was hilarious. Everytime we go to California to visit Jason's family we made sure to see Grandpa Walter. We never left the house without laughing. He was such a hoot! Another story that I think needs to be remembered is last year when Jason and I went to San Fran to visit him his sisters and mom came with us too. And I was talking to Jasons sister who was prego at the time and we were talking about hormones for some reason and I didn't think he was listening but out of no where he says "Hormone? You wanna hear a whore moan? Don't pay her!" We all just looked at eachother and about died laughing! Funny man. He will for sure be missed. He was always a tease ( I think that's where Jason got it from) and always made everyone laugh. I loved visiting him, he would always put a smile on my face. I will always remember his sense of humor, his love for others. Love you Grandpa Walter!
