It's been a while

I decided to try and start blogging again... Mostly because I want to be able to look back on this crazy life of ours. I am terrible at keeping a journal I hate writing. So i'll try and give this a try. Plus I'm kind of over facebook not gonna lie.

I wanted to share my thoughts on family...
I can not even tell you how much I love and appreciate family! One of my greatest joys in life is definately family. I have THE greatest parents ever! seriously they are so kind and giving. My mom is my best friend and I can always go to her for guidance. My dad is the sweetest most careing man in the whole entire world. He works his butt off to provide for his family and never complains a day in his life ever ever. And can I also say after a 12 hour day at work he still comes home and plays with the kids. Those are some of the best memories I have growing up. He is amazing to say the least! My brother Jacob who turns 19 in August is seriously one of my best friends. He is currently working on his mission papers at the moment. He is so caring and loving and makes me laugh so hard! Every time I think about him leaving I get a little bit choked up. So my baby sister is the best ever! She is so sassy but I love it! And she is drop dead gorgous! Last but not least my baby brothers, they sure are crazy but I wouldn't have it any other way. I am so blessed to have Houston's family! My mother and father in law are nothing short of amazing! I know I can always turn to my nanice (janice mother inlaw) for anything. She has been a tremendous help this year. Well then we have Jen and Brent, Chaz and Amber, Ty and Nicole, Cheyenne and Brad, and little Brecky. We all have so much fun together! I love that we are all pretty close in age. I love each and every one of these family members so much! Oh and not to forget our adorable nieces and nephews. We are blessed!

Basically family is everything! Never take family for grantid. Of course its not always rainbows and butterflies.... this is life. But always forgive and forget. This is what we are here for. Families are forever. The three most important thing to me are the gospel, Houston, and family.

2012 hasn't been the easiest year so far but with family by our side it makes it easier. We are so grateful for our families and everything they do for us we love them oh so much.

Durango Bound

So this past weekend me and Houston went to Durango Colorado with my family. We actually stayed up farther in the mountains on Vallecito Lake. We seriously had so much fun. We didn't head off untill 4:30 and didn't arive till 2:00 in the morning Colorado time we were exhausted. There was a lot of fishing sight seeing and horse back riding. And best of all amazing weather. There was also a ton of deer and geese, so cute! It is so beautiful in Durango. The Trees are crazy tall and ton of them!

Seriously so cute

He is so cute

He's the best

So next up is Cali this weekend with the Standages! I can not WAIT for the beach, and of course Knotts Berry Farm. Woo hoo!

Here we go...

Okay so here we go... I am so super new at this whole blogging thing. I always wanted to try it out and have literally been working on this thing for months. I don't know why but I find it verrrry confusing. Maybe one day I will get a hang of it. So me and Houston have been married for a little over a year now and we love it! We have to cutie little dogs... Ruthy and Gus. We love them oh so much, very entertaining. Right now we are just super busy working. Houston working for Rocky Mountaing Restoration. Water and fire damage, they save the day. He loves it! He's the kind of guy that loves to be doing the hard labor kind of jobs. He is definately not the sit behind the desk kind of job. Obviously nothing wrong with that just not him. And I work at a childrens hair salon called snip it's. I love it. I love working with kids even though it can be super frustrating sometimes. We also get a lot of kids that have autism and down syndrom that come into this salon, I guess were known to be good with them. It is definately a challenge cutting there hair because almost all of them HATE getting there hair cut but when its all done they are just cute as can be! I love it. So thats basically it with us we are super low key our dates mostly pertain to just the two of us or our family. Lame I know but I love that we both just want to be with each other. We really do have a lot of fun just the two of us. We teach the 11 year olds in primary and Houston is also there scout leader... we'll see how that goes I'm sure he will be great. So thats basically us in a nut shell. Basically we love each other. Life is good.
