Great Strides is less than a month away!!

I want to make CF stand for Cure Found. This year's Great Strides is from my husband, Brian, Rex, Tiffany, Kendall and all my other friends that have passed away. I can't stand to see this happen anymore! Please help us and join our team or donate! All donations go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation even if it is a dollar.

Easter comments
Happy Easter yesterday!! I hope everyone 
had a wonderful day! 
The whole entire Easter weekend was 
amazing for me! Here is a little run down.

Friday involved this:

Breakfast with Emily, Amy, and Dominic. It was part of Emipalooza (this is a series of things Emily does for her birthday so if you can't make it to one then it is likely you can make it to something). We went to the Park Cafe and it was delicious! 

Then I hung out with my P.I.C. That was fun as usual! =)

Saturday looked like this:

This is what happens when your parents tell a story of how this happened to another child a few nights before and with the exact color of dye! It was funny!

We colored Easter eggs with our neighbors! It was a lot of fun! They were really creative with their eggs. After that we hid eggs in the backyard for the kids to find and then had an egg roll! That was definitely a good day! 
Later that night, Adam and I went to Clinton and saw our cousin's Cari and Paul. Cari was having a graduation party! There was good food, good people, and good games! We had a blast. We even made some new friends! Other cousins were there as well! 

Sunday was Easter! It went like this:



Adam's parents house for dinner 


We went with Adam's brother, Curtis. It was awesome and a little chilly! We did find both of the geocaches we were looking for! 

Then, we went back to the house and Adam was teaching me how to play the piano. I've always wanted to learn and it is pretty fun so far. I hope to learn more. =)

Wednesday, April 20, 2011


Ok so I know it has been raining a lot here in Utah but I love that when it is not raining that it feels like spring! But the rain isn't half bad either! It is better than snow by far. Anyway..Adam has been wanting to bring my bike from Ogden to SLC and we finally got around to it on Sunday. Luckily enough my godmother gave Adam her bike so we both have a bike to ride. Today, we went for a little ride around the neighborhood. It was kind of chilly outside so we didn't go too far but I think we will try to make this a frequent occurrence. Yay! I hope that the weather stays nice and we don't see anymore snow!

As for my no sweets post at the beginning of the week, I have to say that it has been kind of tough. I have been really good so far. There were a couple times where I have slipped up but I think I've made an improvement from how much I was eating before. And I am ok with that! I feel that if I only have a treat every so often then I will be ok. I also learned today that sugar causes wrinkles and I definitely don't want those! Haha.

Oh! One more thing! Easter is this weekend and I am so excited! I love Easter! It is great! Adam and I will probably spend it at home this year! We are also talking about coloring eggs with our neighbors! I am super stoked about that. I also bought Easter pasta and I am going to make one of my favorite dishes on Easter.

Hope everyone has a blessed holiday!

This week I have decided that I am not going to eat any sweets at least until Easter! I am not sure if I can do it but I really want to start losing some weight and I think that has been one of my major downfalls. I guess we'll see how it goes.

Today was amazing! I haven't had this great of a day in a long time!! 

My day started off with going to my in-laws house. We worked on getting some more stuff on our Etsy shop and hopefully getting it up and running! Hopefully that will happen soon! So keep tuned in for that! 

Then I went shopping with Kristina. We went to Ross, then the Gateway. It was a lot of fun! I got some good stuff! I need to do some spring cleaning of my closet and get rid of some stuff. It is now Adam's job to make sure I complete this task! Haha. 

Finally, we hung out with Brad and Leah! We went to this restaurant on State Street. It is called Rice. It was dang delicious I must say! Then we came back to our house and played some games! It has been so long since we've hung out with them and it was a blast! I am glad that we were able to get together!

PLUS, it was also a beautiful day outside! I hope this means that spring is coming but I have been fooled before!! But I really would like the warm weather to stick around! =)

I do want to give a shout out to my sister-in-law, Catherine and my friend, Hallie. Happy birthday to you both! I hope you had a wonderful day!

Valuable Lesson Number 3

So the past few weeks have been absolutely miserable for me. School has been frustrating. I was really worried about my grade and I don't want this semester to end like last semester. We have been running a group in class and mine didn't go so well. I was so nervous that I wasn't able to control the group. was pretty much a disaster. 
I had a major melt down last week and was considering doing something else. But luckily my husband calmed me down and the next day while I was at work he paged Jody (she is the recreational therapist that made we want to be a part of this profession). She came and talked with me and she reassured me that I can do this and she has faith in me. 
So I set up a meeting with my teacher so I could talk to her. I was worried that she had lost faith in me that I wouldn't be able to do this. We had a good talk and she said to me that I don't have to get straight A's to be a damn good therapist. She said she didn't get the greatest grades in school either. 
I am not good a school. I haven't been for a long time. But I think if I can get out of school and get into the profession I will be ok. I learn so much better by doing it.
This is very hard for me to talk about because I don't want to look or feel stupid because I don't get the greatest grades. But I know that I am smart and I don't need good grades to prove that. I have a lot on my plate and sometimes I have a hard time balancing everything. I mean you should see my house when I have school work to do. ;) I learned that I can do this and one day I will be a recreational therapist. It is what I want to do and I am going to love every minute of it. It might just take me a little longer to get there but I am ok with that. 
Thank you to everyone that has supported me and helped me through these past couple weeks.

This is what I have looked like all weekend pretty much. 
Especially the tissues. My nose has been bothering me the most.
Yesterday was the worst of all. I was really dizzy and nauseous. I had to miss church unfortunately.
I think today is looking a little better. I kind of have a headache though. So we will see what happens. 
Hope everyone is enjoying the nice weather. I hope it stays this way.

I just wanted you all to know that.

What is your reason?!
