Sad to Say Good-Bye

2011 was probably the most stressful, life changing- yet amazing year of my life.
This year I don't think there was an aspect of my life that went unchanged, and it all happened in the last 6 months of it. I have hit my emotional highest and lowest- never felt so loved, and at the same time never felt so alone.
So here is the events of my life 2011- I'll try and do this in order, but my memories come as they will so probably won't be.

  1. Gavin and I moved into our 1st house (its a rental) but still it is just the two of us and we love it! We went out on a limb and moved to SLC even without jobs there. We have made it work and love where we are!

  2. Yurika came to visit for our wedding! She is the best!

  3. I graduated college! YAY!! and in the same week ...

  4. WE GOT MARRIED! Best day of my life! We were so blessed to have so many family and friends there to support us, I would have never imagined our day would turn out so perfect! Our friends and family that helped with the wedding are all so amazing, and everyone that came will always have a special place in our hearts!

  5. Julious moved to Texas... :( sad day

  6. My Grandma had her heart valve replaced, very scary and stressful. But, she has recovered so well!! I can't believe how strong she is.

  7. Family Drama!!! Why can't people just get along???.. and thats all i care to say about that

  8. Went from one brother and one sister-inlaw to 23 TOTAL SIBLILINGS!!

  9. Also I am now the proud Aunt of 30+ nieces and nephews... if someone knows the exact number please share in the comment section below.

  10. Two of my bestest friends had the cutest babies! Ella-Ray(Ashley's) and Jaxson(Bryton's)!! I Love them tons!

  11. Was offered my first real "Big Girl" full time job! Which by the way I took :P. I am working at Trolley Square for Unico as the Tenant Services Coordinator!

  12. We puppy-sat my brothers dog Cashis aka Darby for a few months. I feel in love with the dog and he also became Bugsly (our dogs) best friend! Shortly after his return home he ran away :( but was found a week later! Lucky us!

  13. Gavin and I felt that after Darby left, our home was not complete, there was something missing... so, we bought a new puppy! Her name is Daisy and she is a beautiful Sheltie puppy!

  14. Puppies are alot of work p.s. we will not be having kids anytime soon! Our dogs are our kids! :)

  15. We just had our 1st Christmas together as our cute little family that we are!

2011 was a year of change, growing and learning for me. It gave me a lot of challenges, but also made me a much stronger person! I am sad to see it leave, because I can't imagine a year getting any better than this! Thats my challenge to 2012; give me more than you think I can handle. It will only make me stronger.

Locked out..

Today started out so wonderful.I slept in and woke up to sweet puppy kisses from miss daisy! I then played with the dogs fed them and put them outside to potty.
At this point I realized I was hungry, but there was no food in the house (none that sounded good at least), so I grabbed the "car keys"and headed out for some fast food, because really the problem was I felt too lazy to cook.
When I returned home I reached for my house keys only to realize I never grabbed them in the first place. Hmmm
So now here I sit in my car blogging about my morning stupitity, while waiting for Gavin and Ray to come save me from Ogden (an hr drive away!)....
I have learned a valuable lesson though.. Making breakfast would have been much faster!! Someone remind me of this next time..
I'm still optimistic for the day, how can a holiday paid day off ever be bad?
I have nothing more to post about this lovely situation, but because of my current lack of anything better to do, I will keep on posting my thoughts. Starting with posting via swype text is hella hard! Every two seconds I have to change what the lovely technology of predict text thought I should have said. I don't recommend blogging this way, this takes forever, but I am just trying to make the time pass.
Gavin and Ray are so nice to take the time from their work day to come save me! If you don't know who Ray
is, well he is gavs boss, and one of the nicest men ever!
They just arrived, so in the house I go!

This week has been none stop! between shopping,job 1 holiday activities, job 2, puppy sitting.. o and lets not forget training a new puppy.. I have had absolutely no time to do anything. I was up at the store shopping at 6:30 this morning to get last min things for Gavin finished before work. Still didn't find everything i needed. Luckily my Mom is awesome and came to my work, where I then gave her my list of things along with my card for shopping and off she went to finish my list of to dos... She is the best! But with all that said after 5pm tonight I start my 3 day weekend and I am looking forward to all the fun family time, but even more importantly(at least to me in this moment) I'm looking sleeping in until I wake up tomorrow so I can have lots of energy to enjoy holiday traditions with both Gavin's and my family! Also, so much needed puppy love time. I feel bad for my kids, they have not been receiving the attention they deserve this week and I plan to make up every sec of that!
So, this is the schedule of events for our 1st Christmas as a Married Couple! :)
Friday, Temple Lights with Gavin's awesome brother Cameron and Family!(Brenda, Dbl-Z, and Ninjamen) I will then finish the evening by wrapping all the fun gift to be given this weekend from us!
Sat, Sleep in as long as I possibly can. Do not try and call me.. I won't answer! :P Followed by taking all the dogs (Busgly & Daisy (ours) Rado & Tripod (Melody's)) to the dog park which I'm sure will just be one BIG adventure trying to watch all the dogs, but still fun!) That evening we will start by driving to Gavin's parents for traditions, dinner and gift. Afterwards we will head over to my Grandmas for x-mas gifts and fun! Finally, I will put Gavin to bed and wait for Santa to arrive at our house!
Sun, Wake up to gifts from Santa! :) My family will then join us at our house for a nice small Christmas Breakfast!. Afternoon will be spent with family enjoy company and playing games. We will end the night at my Grandmas for a wonderful Christmas dinner!!!

I love our families, they are the best. The variety of people is so fun and amazing!

New Job, Old Me

So, I got a new job!! I'm the tenant services coordinator for trolley square, although I technically work for UNICO a property management company! Yay! And, with the new job I finally started feeling like myself again. I am up and going by 6:30 and don't stop till i crawl back into bed at night. AND I FEEL GREAT! No more couch potatoe for me! I'm also starting my new work out program tonight!! It feels great to be out of the house and living life again. :D
