Mother Dearest.

"Oh, I've loved you from the start
In every single way
And more each passing day
You are brighter than the stars
Believe me when I say
It's not about your scars
It's all about your heart"

I love this woman more than any person will ever know.
Her example of faith and strength has blessed more people than she will ever know.
I am so glad to have her in my life.
I love you, mom.

"There is no me if I cannot have you"

One year!

I can't believe one year has past already. We have been married for on year today. I am so lucky to have the husband that I do and am so thankful for him and everything he does for me.

He truly is my best friend. I would rather sit on the couch and play xbox with him than do than do the most fun thing with anyone else. He makes everything so much more fun and I love to spend as much time with him as I can!
I love how much he LOVES to cuddle with me. Even though half the time I just want to lay free and be comfortable, he ALWAYS talks me into cuddling with him even for a minute. And I wake up at least once in the middle of the night with him practically on top of me (in a king size bed) because he loves to cuddle.
He is the funniest person I have ever met. When we are together, we truly have so much fun. We can do the most random things and he makes everything funnier. He makes grocery shopping, and even going to school fun! He is so quick witted that no matter what you say to him he always has a come back that is 10x better and 10x faster. haha
Since being married I have found that he is thee most organized person ever, and if you really know me you know that I am not always the most responsible. Brian has taught me a lot about being responsible and organized. hahah
He is such a hard worker. He will always work to his full potential and he loves to help others. He works from morning to night to make sure that he finishes what he started. I love it when he lets me go to work with him!

I could go on and on but it's our anniversary! I don't wanna be on the computer all day!

I love my husband very much. Even more each day! He is my best friend and he makes life a million times better.

(holding up his #1 for one year. hahaha)

It's true!

I do have brown hair! It is the first time in my entire life I have had a different hair color and I actually love it! My sister in law is AMAZING at doing hair and I love getting to spend the time to have girl talk while she does it! I have wanted to do it since I was about 12 years old, and finally I have done it. My sister in law did an amazing job and I think I will keep it up, at least for now until I get bored again! haha Tell me your thoughts.

It is also true that we are moving to Arizona, next month!
It may sound completely crazy to everyone we know considering we have jobs, a house, and both go to school here in Utah, but to us it makes perfectly good sense! I was a little nervous at first, but we are excited now! Even though we will be missing our family and friends here we plan on visiting us much as we can!

and also, my husband shaved his mustache, I couldn't be more happy! haha

Fall Break 2010

We got to spend a whole week with my family this past week! That is the longest amount of consistent days we have had to spend time with all of my family since before we were married! We've spent time with my mom, dad, and Hales, but not so much the Roussels so it was fun for a family vacation all together. Usually when we go to Arizona its just for a couple days, so this was such a blessing!

My dad is amazing, as everyone knows. He took all of us on a cruise to the Caribbean. This was Brians first cruise! I was so excited to get to spend a week away from work and school, and it really was a nice break!

We went to Honduras, Belize, and Cozumel. Our ship actually got to Grand Cayman and we were about to get off when we were told that the weather was too bad and we were unable to. We were all pretty bummed, but still excited to get to go to 3 other countries and to play card games and hangout as a family together!

Lindsey Smart

My best friend got married on Saturday, September 25th 2010. I love this so much, not only because I love lindsey and I love greg, but because I love marriage. I love that my best friends keep getting married because it truly is the best thing ever. I have been married for 11 months now, (almost a year! woohoo!) and there is not a day that goes by that I am not thankful for my husband. I guess I just love that my friends and I are all moving on with our lives, yet we still are and always will be best friends. Not to mention our husbands all get along as well. Life gets better every single day! Also, I love Greg. He is PERFECT for Lindsey. They truly are the funniest, happiest, most in love couple ever! It is so fun to see my best friend so happy and in love!

Lindsey was a GORGEOUS bride, but lets face it, Linds is a super model every day of the week. Her dress was AMAZING, and totally her! All the colors, details, and wedding party outfits were amazing!

I was dying over this picture at her reception. So cute.

My brand new phone with all my pics got stolen today.

Ask me how mad I am... I am pissed. I hope my new one comes before out cruise so I can refill it with pictures of Recker! (which I am most sad about losing.)

Brian went on a horseback riding, fishing, boys trip with some of his friends and their dad this past weekend. They covered some parts of Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana. He is such a cowboy and loves those trips but I miss him whenhe's gone. Luckily, I got to go to Arizona this weekend and hangout with my mom and sister and my favorite little man.

In 4 days my best friend, Lindsey Barney gets married! I am so happy for her, and I love the boy she is marrying! His name is Greg and they are PERFECT for eachother! I can't wait for them to be back in Utah and hanging out with us all the time!

From Lindseys reception I am flying straight to Florida and on Sunday we board our cruise! I cannot wait! I have been working out everyday trying to lose a pound or two cause I know I will gain 5+. We could not be more excited and are counting down the days! I am also excited to get to spend more than 2 days with my family! haha

When we get back we will have all sorts of pictures to post... until then...

To be honest...

I forgot my username and password to my blog.

That is why I haven't updated.
Not to mention my life is pretty boring right now.

We are back in school which means for me... Work 8-5, School 530-Varies, home, sleep. Do it all over the next day.

and for Brian... School, then work, then school, then home, then study. Repeat.

Our lives are over, I miss my husband already!
I lost him to his school books!

I need September 26th to be here sooner!
