Just a thought...

For the past year, Tyson and I have been struggling with a huge trial that has come our way. For the most part, I think I have done a pretty good job at handling my feelings and not becoming too sad...but today I got SO upset! I was on my way home from work when I was talking to the husband on the phone, when we got on the subject. I could NOT fight back the tears and I just started crying. Tyson is always SO strong...which is good, because that would be a mess if we were both cry babies! I got home and for the past hour or so I just sat in our quiet house, when this quote from President Hinckley came to my mind... "If life gets too hard to stand...kneel." I fell right to my knees and just prayed! I prayed for so long!!

I know that Heavenly Father loves us. I know that he answers our prayers. I know that we all have trials... some are really small, that last just a few minutes...and some are so big, that they feel like they will never go away. After I prayed, I felt so much better! I have SO much to be grateful for...oh my goodness!!

THESE are my favorite BLESSINGS:
  • I have the best husband in the whole entire world! He is my best eternal companion...and my little angel boy.

  • I have an amazing mom and dad who always lift me up and say EXACTLY what I need to hear on my roughest days.

  • I have the funnest and most awesome siblings in the world. We are all so friends forever.

  • I have the best family-in-law. They are amazing and make me so happy.

  • I have five of the cutest little angel girls as my nieces that bring me so much happiness. They are hillarious.

  • I have a great job...that I actually enjoy going to every day!

  • I have a beautiful home that I get to live in.

  • I have a testimony.

  • I am not too poor.

  • I go on vacations like all the time.

  • I get to sleep in on the weekends.

  • I am a happy person!

"If life gets too hard to stand...kneel."

Tahiti...Mandatory Vacay

Tyson and I have a secret obsession with Bachelorette. K, maybe its not a secret...but we do have some sort of obsession. Every Monday consists of us chillin at home starting at 8pm watching ABC. Tonight's episode was extremely dramatic...thought I was going to break down in tears, but one thing that was SO special is that they were in TAHITI. We decided we are going there!! We are so excited!! It is like THE most romantic place on earth! It literally costs like one million dollars to go there, but we don't care. Tyson is looking at flights and hotels and I am examining pictures of this heavenly place. I sincerely hope we get to go one day!! We are going to start saving TODAY, so we can go in like ten years. :) TAHITI... HERE WE COME!!!

PS - I have loved Roberto this whole season but I have grown to LOOOVEEE Christopher. If she doesn't choose Chris, I am going to be SO upset.

Day Date!

I am trying to get better at this Blog thing...I think I am finally getting the hang of it! Anyways... Tyson HATES going to the movies with me because I always fall asleep. I seriously have a disease I think...if there is such a thing... I fall asleep in every movie no matter how hard I try to stay awake!! I told him if he wanted me to stay awake then maybe we could try going to a morning movie. SO, this morning we went to the movies at 11:00am. Haha. It was so much fun! So random...I don't think we have EVER gone to the movies that early before. I think we decided though we will definitely be doing it again because (a) it is so much cheaper and (b) I stayed awake the WHOLE time!

We went and saw Inception and surprisingly I really liked it! In the first ten minutes I was so confused and I was hating my life, but it got better. I normally only like chick flick, love stories... so this is kind of a big deal. We also snuck Port of Subs in. Love the POS. Its so bomb. Day Dates are just so special!! We had so much fun!!
