In August I was diagnosed with GALLSTONES! I don't know how I got them or why they came but they are there 5-7 stones just a chillin in my gallbladder! I don't know if any of you have had gallstones but they are the WORST I've never been in so much pain....I even made Jamin take me to the ER I thought I was going to die! I've decided that I'm going to get my gallbladder removed so I wont be sick anymore I just need to get a few things worked out on my insurance then I will schedule a time! I'm so scared to eat food cause I might get sick again I just never know whats going to come! But I have lost 10lbs cause I've been eating healthy I hope its something I can stick too! If you google gallstones the pictures are so disgusting!

New Mexico in July

In July my parents took me and Emma and Reese for a week long trip to New Mexico to visit my grandparents again! My brother Cody and his cute wife Joelle came too! It was such a fun road trip we stopped in Santa Fe the first day I've always wanted to go to Santa Fe mostly for the song Cowboy sings in Newsies I wanted to walk the street of Santa Fe singing that song and believe me we did haha! The next day we made the 3 hr drive to to my Grandparents! I didn't take pictures again while we were there but I did have few on my phone that I uploaded! We did a lot of things like shopping and the Inn of the Mountain Gods which is a beautiful casino up in the mountains! We also had a BBQ with my moms family and I got to spend time with my cousin that I don't see enough I love spending time with my FAMILY!

We celebrated Emma's birthday while we were there I made her owl cupcakes for her Harry Potter party which we didn't have cause we ran out of time.....I know the cupcakes look like crap but I tried! I' m so thankful for my wonderful sister Emma! She is the best and is always there for me when I need her! I love all the time we spend together! Happy Birthday Sista!

Most the time we were there my dad and brother and grandpa spent the days cutting this tree down I wish I had a before picture but I didn't get one before they started and by the time I got back it was half gone! They worked so hard and I'm so thankful no one got hurt there were a few times I was scared! I helped a little hauling the branches to the trailer it was hard work and it was like a thousand degrees outside too! We only had one branch fall and smash some of the carport! I'm so glad that we were able to go and help my grandparents cut down the tree!

My cute daddy dancing with Reese and singing Some Day my Prince Will Come! Reese is a Disney Princess freak, she eats, sleeps and talks princess all day every day it hard to get her mind off of it! But I love her so much! She will always be my little Princess!

Here is my cute mommy eating breakfast in Moab! I love her so much!

On the way home we got to meet my moms cousin Connie! I love her and her husband so much they are the nicest people ever! I've met Connie before but I was a baby so I don't remember her! I hope its not 22 yrs before I see her again! My mom was so happy to see her cousin again they are the cutest together and you can tell how much they love and missed each other! I'm so glad I got to share that time with them! I also got to see my Uncle Larry (my moms brother) and my cousin Travis its been a few years and my cousin is like 900 ft tall I couldn't believe how tall and handsome he was I've missed him!

It was such a GREAT trip and I'm so GRATEFUL for the time I got to spend with my grandparents I don't get to do it enough! They are such a blessing in my life and I couldn't ask for better grandparents! Thanks for all you do and have done for me and Jamin We love you so much! I can't wait for our next trip!

Life is like a box of chocolates you never what your going to get.....

In April we found out that we were expecting our first BABY! AAAAHHHHHH! I was so scared and didn't know how we were going to have to a child....we weren't trying to have a baby and I was on the pill yes you lucky people you've just met the 1% of people who get pregnant on the pill. For the first few weeks I was not very excited about this adventure in our life! As I started to tell a few people I got more excited for this little baby to come I even bought it a cute little BYU onsie (for Jamin mostly cause I could careless about that school).

We had a first Dr visit and I was so nervous! He did his thing and told me that my uterus tilted back and that is very normal and not to worry about anything, next he got out his little heart monitor thing and started to listening for the heart beat after a few minutes he couldn't find anything...he reassured us that everything was ok and it was normal with a tilted uterus not to hear the heart beat and I wasn't exactly sure how far along I was (I've learned keeping track of your period is a very good thing and its something I am doing now). He told us to go schedule an ultrasound so that they could measure the baby and know exactly how far along I was. We went to schedule our ultrasound and to our surprise that next appointment was a week away.

After one very long stressful week we went to get our ultrasound....things didn't turn out so good! They found my tiny 9 wk old baby but it had no heart beat....we had lost our baby! I was heartbroken! I've never felt pain and sadness like that before! We then scheduled a D&C procedure to be done. The next few days were really hard I didn't feel normal my body just felt off and sick. I was so nervous for the D&C I've never had any procedure done let a lone really been in a hospital before! I had the procedure done and everything went fine, by the next day I felt pretty normal just sad! I couldn't figure out why it happened to me, I know it happens to women all the time and it is a very common thing to have a miscarriage but I just didn't feel it was fair for me to have to! I know life is full trials and they only make you stronger and this trial has definitely made me stronger and has brought me and Jamin closer. I know the lord wont put any mountain in front of me that I can't climb. I now know I've been through the hardest part of getting pregnant that if it was to ever happen again I know that I will be able to pull through it! I'm so blessed with such an amazing family who was there for me night and day!! I love them all so much!

The next few months

Not much happened the next few months we worked and Jamin was busy with school! On April 9th we celebrated our 2 year anniversary...we didn't do much but go to dinner. The past 2 years have been the best 2 years of my life! Jamin even said being married to me for 2 yrs is better than the 2 yrs he served a mission haha! I couldn't ask for a better husband! Love you Honey!

Next I took a girls trip with my sister Emma and Reese and my sister in law Chjori to visit my grandparents in New Mexico....the trip was shorter than I would have liked it to be we had a lot of fun and did a lot of shopping! I got to see my cousin Sonya that I haven't seen in past 8 yrs and finally meet her cute little girls, they are so cute and funny! (I wished that I had pictures but I am lame and forgot). We also spent some time with my Granny Oma we got a nice tan chatting with her outside for a couple hours and my Auntie Lori! I love my family so much and hate how far away they live but love every second I get to spent with them.

A BEAUTIFUL New Mexico sunset!! I love New Mexico mostly cause that is where my family is...but I do think it is so pretty! We also played at white sands....we built amazing sand tunnel. White sands is like rolling hills of snow but its sand and its not cold! I have so much fun every time I go!
Emma and Reese Playing in the sand!

Me and the cute Chjori! I had so much fun spending time with my sister in law! Love you!

My cute Granny holding a picture of my sister April she was so sad that she couldn't come with us so I decided to take her with us any ways! I had so much fun going on this girls trip it was much needed and I missed my grandparents so much! They are really the best out there I'm a lucky girl! I feel sad that I didn't take a lot of pictures but I always forget or I look like a freak so I just delete them haha!

So in Oct. before we moved we asked our landlord if we could have a pet and she said one day I was really sick and Jamin was helping his parents and my mom and sister were taking care of me I asked them if we could stop at the pet store and just look......when we walked in I went straight to the kitties! To my surprise they had orange tabbies which is the kind of kitty I wanted so I picked one out to just hold and snuggle. As soon as I picked her up I told my sister I'm never putting back and I left the store with the worlds cutest orange kitty! I names her Weasly I know she is a girl but she is orange and it just had to be her name! I never told Jamin I was getting her so he was pretty surprised when he got home! We hadn't moved yet so we had to hide our cute kitty for a few weeks and she came every where with me! She even had a sleep over with me Emma and Reese one night! She fits in our family so prefect!


We left our small stinky, cold apartment in Lehi for a BIGGER BETTER apartment in Lindon....I love our place we live in a basement apartment! Our landlord is the BEST and so sweet! I love living here and I'm afraid I might never leave haha! The best thing about this place is I don't have to share the washer and dryer so I can wash my clothes whenever I want and if I want I can leave them in there! We also have a dishwasher I've never had a dishwasher in my life...needless to say Jamin does the dishes mostly cause I'm not to good at loading it!

This is our cute kitchen....we don't have that table anymore I sold it to pay off some bills!

Our washer and dryer its sooooo nice to have our own and not have to share I don't have to ask the neighbors to take there clothes out of the dryer.

The living room.....we have gotten a bigger TV that Jamin loves so much and it was FREE!(the one good thing about Jamins job)

The doesn't look like this anymore I took these pictures after we moved and I have done some redecorating. I love the bathroom cause there is a tub that I can enjoy a nice hot bubble bath my favorite.

Our bedroom it is nice and has 2 awesome closets one of each of us!

I love our little place so much and believe it or not its a lot bigger and the same price as the one we lived in before!

The past year.....

Sorry its been so long...I'm going to be better at blogging! So a LOT has happen in the past and Jamin both got new jobs a year ago. Jamin works for a company called install pro and lets just say that he is looking for a new one haha! He has been working hard so at UVU and is hoping he only has 2 years left. He is studying History Education with a minor in Spanish. He loves school so much I have to beg him to sluff school and hang out with!

I love working with the patients and the doctors I work for are amazing. I don't do much but work full time I wish I was going to school and I want to go back to school ...but I don't fill like getting more in to debt yet haha one day I will go back I hope!
