One year ago...

I married the man of my dreams, my best friend and the person I get to spend eternity with. He's my partner in crime, my goof ball and I love him. I am so very blessed that I have him in my life. He makes me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world and my love grows for him more and more each day. He treats me like a princess. This last year has been one of the most amazing years of my life. And I'm so glad that I have my husband by my side. Thick and thin. He's the perfect man. 

Enjoy our first dance song. :) ha ha.


Thankful Thursday.

I decided it has been awhile since I've done a "Thankful Thursday" and seeing as Easter is on Sunday it seems appropriate to do so. Some of the things I'm thankful for are people so, it might be a repeat on them. Just thought I'd give you a warning and let you know I'm not sorry about that. (Totally kidding!)

First things first. I am so thankful that I am a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. I am who I am because I am a member of this church. I love everything about it and I absolutely love being a Latter Day Saint or you may know me as a "Mormon" or "LDS" which is all the exact same thing. I am thankful that I was born and raised in this church but I am confident that if I wasn't that I would have eventually joined. I love that my church gives me such a beautiful place to go to feel the love of our savior and to feel peace and comfort. I am so thankful for the temples that surround me. They are my "happy place" my place I can go for guidance and to feel safe and comforted. I'm also thankful to them because now I get to be with my best friend for all time and eternity. I am thankful to Jesus for all he has done for me and continues to do for me on a daily basis. I'm proud to be a daughter of God. I love this church so much.
(This is the Mount Timpanogos Temple. Also the temple I was sealed in to my husband)

I am also so, so, so thankful for my wonderful husband. He means the world to me. As I hope you can tell by now.. seeing as how he's basically all I blog about ha ha. He is so sweet, caring and compassionate. He always takes care me when I'm sick, he's there for me when I've had a bad day and he always knows how to cheer me up. He always has the sweetest surprises up his sleeve too. I love him so much. I am lucky that I get to be called his wife and that he will be the father of my children. He's may not be perfect, or prefect to you but to me he is perfect. He's flawless. He's my best friend. I'm glad that he is my eternal companion. He's the greatest and I absolutely love everything about him. And it's crazy to think that next week we have been married for a year! Crazy right? It has definitely been the best year of my life and I am looking forawrd to many more with him. I wouldn't want anyone else by my side. I ask myself everyday how did I get so lucky to deserve such an amazing guy like he is? All I know is I am truly blessed to have him in my life and I am eternally thankful that he is mine. 
(This is from Disneyland last year. Throw back Thursday ha ha!)

I am so thankful for many things.. but this is all I can blog about right now. My brain isn't working probably because I've been throwing up since last night ha ha. But anyways.. until later. :) Have a happy Thursday!



A mouth ago I took a WONDERFUL trip to California with my family.. and I'm just now deciding to post a few pictures from the trip. (When I say a few I probably mean a lot ha!) So sit back relax and enjoy. PS. These aren't in order.. I'm WAY too lazy to put them in order ha ha.

This is the beach in Carlsbad. My family and I stayed in a house that was right on the beach. It was awesome to see this view every morning I must say.. and to be able to hear the sound of the ocean was even better. Nothing is more soothing to me than that sound. It was also awesome to be able to see the sunset every night and to be able to go swimming in the ocean and collect some seashells on the beach!

These next three pictures are from the beach in Laguna Beach. This beach is absolutely beautiful. I really wish we were able to spend more time here. Maybe next time ha ha. We stopped here on our way back home. We probably spent about two hours here. It was nice to be able to capture a lot of gorgeous pictures and have one last walk on the beach with the hubs. The water here was so clear and wonderful. I totally recommend Laguna Beach to everyone who goes to California! You will LOVE it.

This was such a beautiful day! I was so saddened it was the day we were leaving.

This place is so cool! You could totally walk through the rock.. how crazy is that? Also this is where the BEST tide pools are. So many sea animals it was pretty great.

This is the "Bird of Paradise" flower. They are EVERYWHERE in California. They are pretty much awesome. I loved seeing them all the time. I took this picture in Laguna Beach also. There were millions around the area it was great.

This was the first picture that was taken in California of James and I. It was at the food place we stopped to eat at before we could get into the house. I was starving so thank goodness for fast food ha! I was so excited and ready to be in warm weather and especially in California!

This is in Sea World. The first place we went to. It was so much fun. I love all the animals that you are to see there and how many you can actually touch. It's amazing. It was my husbands first time at Sea World so I felt like I had a small child with me. Which isn't a bad thing. I loved watching how excited he got about everything. It was a total blast!

My husband was thrilled to be able to see this house that was in the movie "Top Gun" which is one of his favorites. So of course we had to make a quick stop and get a picture. I think it might of made his entire night. ha ha. Sad news though, they might be knocking it down. Darn it. 

This picture is with Shamoo who is the whale in Sea World. He was so cute that I made sure that my husband and I got a picture with him. We were greeted with great big hugs. Which made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I wish all stuffed animals would hug you! ha!

These rocks were in LegoLand they sang songs and were so exciting to see.

This is the entrance of LegoLand. Which I wouldn't recommend going here unless you have small children. This park is definitely not for adults. But that's okay. It was worth going for the nieces and nephew.
