This isnt the best picture of my Mom, but i dont think it matters though... a picture doesnt confirm who a person is, and if a picture were to do that, then it would be one huge and beautiful picture. I love my Mom so much, and since i was on my honeymoon i wasnt able to give her a real mothers day thank you. A thank you for all the years she put up with not only me, but my siblings as well. If she hadnt done such a great job, then everyone wouldnt be as wonderful as they are. Yeah we get in little arguements, but we love eachother and i wouldnt want any of them to change.. but back to my Mom. She has done alot for this family.. when she was first married, my dad was in the military and they moved ALOT... and she dealed with not being with her family on christmas, or birthdays, or thankgiving... she made do with what they had. She was and still is strong.. my dad left and went over seas for a while and during that time my brother Adam broke his Femur from falling off a vacuum, which has to take some talent! lol :), anywho... and she was able to be calm and deal with it and take him to the doctor... My mom has so many talents in crafts, and she's a good singer.. but more important she's a good listener and advice giver. If you need anything you can talk to her about it... I love just oging to movies with my mom, or sitting at home watching TV and end up getting the giggles or something that doesnt make any sense, or not even funny... She's my mother, but also she's my friend... I think its important to have both in one package, a friend and mother... most important though a mother... And in a few years when Logan and I have children.. i want to be like you mom. I want to worry over nothing so my kids can tease me, and ill just blame it on their grandmother :), but i want them to love me the way that your kids love you... we all love you Mom and THANK YOU so much for everything, even the little things, but most importantly Thank You for loving us!!

I love scrapbooking, I loved to put things together around a photo to make it pop out, make more meaning to it... and when my sister introduced me to scrapbooking a few years back, i slowly got into it and i loved it alot, but then a few months back when i got into digital scrapbooking.. it was awesome! i got sucked into it right away.. it was fun cutting and pasting, erasing, changing the opacity, adding texture.. being able to have total control over something... i love digital scrapbooking.. its something i can go to and just be myself and have fun with. No one is judging you, its something i can do on my own.. something i can do with out being compared to someone else... i like it.. its so much fun to do... being able to take the photos that i love that i have taken and to make something great of it.. its awesome

For those who know me, you know that pink hasnt been my favorite color growing up. i think that the last time that I had wore pink until my sophmore year was age 6 or 7. My mom said i would wear it anymore... and until lately I could give her millions of reasons why, but i dont know.. i dont know if its growing up or influence of Logan or even Maegan's obsession with the color, but i like it alot now.. i bought the cutest shirt :) thats pink and old navy flip-flops that are pink, anyways... I like the color now... lol.. after all the these years of depise and i end up lovin it now! hee hee... so thats the change of banner and color now... if you couldnt tell!!

The reptile house was the first place we went to when we got to the Zoo... they had so many different snakes and lizzards.. and turtles! wow they had tons of reptiles!! we loved them so much!!... i think that they was our favorite are favorites. They were so many different colors, and sizes!! the turtle on the bottom he's as big as myself! HOLY BIG TURTLE!! :) needless to say we enjoyed our selfs and had a wonderful time!
Its been almost a year since i have graduated from my Highschool... and lately i have been thinking about highschool and the changes i have made through those 4 years and since then... I was growing through some pictures and saw some of me when i was younger, and i couldnt believe that i have changed that much in a few years.. and i like the changes i have made.. who i am today. i like that... i dont regret the choices i have made because even if they were the wrong choice they have led me to this point, of which i am loving. I have a wonderful husband, a fantastic family, and friends who love me! i feel so prevledged to have all this! This winter my husband and i are going to make a trip to move to Utah... and I'm going to miss my family so much! Of course we're coming back A.S.A.P., but we are goign to miss all our family and friends... but at the same time im so excited to go on an adventure... not knowing anyone... getting a new job, going from penny to penny... i mean yeah its going to be one of the hardest things i'll ever experience, but i want that... i want to trip and fall and learn and grow with Logan... i want to be able to lean on him when things get rough for me and vis versa... i think that this is going to hard on us both, but if we stand strong together it will be a wonderful experience that we can tell our kids about when they come along :)...

Its been a little over a week since we have been married and I love it. I am so excited to spend the rest of my life with Logan... He makes me so happy and I hope that i do the same for him. We fit together like we were ment for each other.. and i honestly believe with my whole heart that we were... that our life together was planned before we were even on earth...

On Friday Logan surprised me with a boquet of a dozen roses... these are my favorite.. yellowish in the middle and then bright pink/orange on the outside... i think these are the best looking flowers! i love them so much... He had called me and told me he'd be over in 20 minutes, 40 minutes later i hear the bell ring and he's holding a flower he picked from a parking lot, which i thought was cute.. then after giving him a hug he pulls the roses from his back. I thought it was sweet of him.. I love you honey :)!!
Fad have been around forever...its about time that one is finnally helpful for the cumminty, and even the world. These rubber bracelets have became so popular over the past year that is unbleiveable. I mean low rise pants have swept the country, but i think that these are a little more tasteful :)... anywho different ones help out different funds... Like the yellow one is for Cancer, the pink one for Breast Cancer. There are purple ones that say HOPE, there are blue ones that are for the tsunami relife, there are red white and blue colored ones that say SUPPORT OUR TROUPS... the original starter of this great fad is Lance Armstrong. Yes i am a victim of this fad, but im proud to wear these bright color because i want to be a supporter of researches, of foundations that help people. When i see them in the stores i look to see what they are for... some just say the name of a store, and those dont intrest me, only the ones that actually go somewhere useful... what fad is next?

Only five days left until Logan and I are married. I'm so excited. Everyone asks me if I'm nervous or if it has even hit me yet that I'm going to married. I tell everyone the same thing, no im not nervous and that it still hasnt hit me yet. I dont think there is anything to be nervous about... I know that Logan is my one only true love, and that there is no one out there for me but him. Our recption will be unperfect and there will be bumps here and there. With my luck i'll trip and fall infront of everyone or something like that, but that doesnt bother me or even scare me because i know what is going to result from our marriage, an eternal bond between him and I that will never be broken. I love Logan with all my heart and I'm ready to jump feet first into our new life with my hand clasped tightly in his hand. i cant wait for the hard times that will bring us closer, the times that we cant stop laughing and tears roll from our eyes. I cant wait to move to a new town and no one, knowing it will bring Logan and I closer to one another. I cant wait for all the times people warn us about. A few weeks ago Logan and I had the chance to spend a little time with an Elderly couple from my church. They have been married for quite some time now, and they told us that they were still on their honey moon. The lady told me that she loved everything that has happened to them, that it has only brought them closer to eachother, even the hardest times. It made her realize how much love she has for him. I want Logan and I to have that same love and respect for one another when we are old. I always joke with logan asking him that when im so old and wrinkled will he change my diapers, he smiles and cringes his face and says "yes honey"... i think thats love right there.

Ever feel that you have done so much in one day that it really didnt feel like 'just' one day, but more like two? Today Logan and i moved most of his things out of his apartment, let me tell you that moving out of an apartment on the second story isnt the funnest thing to do on a saturday. We have to get his couches still and TV, but thats for monday. Then after scrambling to get most things otu of the apartment we rushed home, and took showers and then i ran up to Amy's and we hung out. The boy went to Hooters and had a batcholer party for Logan, whom had a wonderful time. Rae, Carrie, My Mom, Amy, and I went to T.G.I. Friday's and then we went to Amy's and played a game called "girls night out" its like janga but when you pull out a block there is a question on it like "most embarrassing moment" or "worst first date" and then you got to pick who had to answer it. It was fun it lasted for a a while then someone kocked it down on accident and we just picked from the pile and everyone answered it. I liked it alot, it seemed for me that my mom and i got to hangout in a non-stressful enviroment and just have a good time with eachother, which is always nice and i love to do. Then the boys joined us and we had Cold Stone Ice Cream. I was going to try something new instead of my regular, but i failed on that one. I got there and was like "ill get the usual" which is CAKE BATTER AND COOKIE DOUGH, you may frown and say thats nasty, but trust me its so yummy!! oh man i love that stuff :) anywho well that was my wonderful day, but im excited for tomorrow. It's Logan and mine's last sunday at the branch, and so we are sad to say goodbye to everyone, but we know we will see them all again. Only 6 more days until we get married!! i'm super excited! this may come off as weird, but it still hasnt hit me yet that im getting married. i've talked to a few people and they said it was about 2-3 weeks later it had it them that they were married. Prolly be around the same for me... nite
