Happy 25th

 Happy 25th birthday to this handsome guy! I have to admit I am a pretty lucky lady! This guy treats me right. He is helping me get through nursing school (Which is completely ridiculous I might add) He helps me out around the house with dishes, laundry, and cleaning. He has been working his can off at work to get his sales team pumped up. This guy deserves an amazing Birthday!

In September John and three of his good friends went on a week long "Dude's Cruise" to Mexico. This was his pre-birthday birthday present. They had a blast, but in turn we decided to keep his birthday pretty low key. I had school and he worked. I met him at home and surprised him with a few gifts and a chocolate cream pie. We had dinner at the Bombay house and went to a movie. All I gotta say is I love this guy :)

3 years later....

We celebrated our 3 year anniversary on the 5th. It is crazy to think of how different our life was three years ago! I love to look back at the photos from our wedding and think about how much has changed. I had a totally different idea of how my life and our marriage was going to be. Even though we have had a rocky road for the first few years I am happy to report that we are doing well and we are looking towards a bright future!

Terrible Blogger

So I officially suck at blogging. My camera has been having issues....therefore I have not used it and I have no new pictures to upload :(
My update since this spring is not too exciting. So I got into nursing school and have been trying to get ready to start on the 15th of August. They require an ridiculous amount of information from you!!(Drug tests, background checks, detailed immunization records, about 15 different documents read and signed, uniforms, stethoscope, shall I continue....) So my summer of being a bum did not happen!
I did get to see my brother, his wife, and kiddos for a little bit! I have sure missed them since they moved to Iowa. I have officially decided that its okay to not live in the same city, but you should definitely live in the same state as your family! Its too hard!
We have decided to move. We need to be around the point of the mountain... I can't drive 30 miles/45 min 6days a week! So probably around November we will be moving at least to Sandy, maybe Fr. Union. I am SOOOO excited about this move. I am sick of driving all day everyday!
Well.... there is my update. So exciting right? I am trying to enjoy my last two weeks before school officially starts. I've been reading, crocheting, and watching movies. I have been semi productive by going through my office and food storage to help take off some of the stress when we move while I'm still in school. Hopefully I will have more exciting updates to come!

Exciting news!

So.... I got accepted to nursing school!!!!! I am so relieved. I have been in limbo since January not knowing what I will be doing this fall. Well now I know I will have no life, but I am very happy to be accepted and be able to get started. I will attend the University of Utah this fall, and I will graduate May 2014 as a Registered nurse. so.... probably not much blogging coming your way. Thanks for all the love and support of friends and family! It is appreciated very much!

Reading, Reading, Reading

So I have had a little break from my hectic life of school and work. I had Christmas break and then my spring semester is pretty relaxed. In this time I have been taking full advantage of my free time! I have been able to read books.... FOR FUN!

I LOVE LOVE LOVED this series! I can't wait for the movie to come out :) I think I read all three of these books in a couple of weeks( that is incredibly fast for me!)

So funny story with this book. I was in Grand Junction, CO for a weekend with my grandpa. On a particularly slow afternoon my Mom, Sister, and I took a stroll down Main Street and found a second hand shop. We picked up a TON of books for about 25cents a piece. I love a good juicy love story so I of course picked up this book... I must say it was really funny! I totally loved it!

Finally per the request of my friend Vanessa I have started the Vampire academy books. I am just finishing up the first book... I must say the first half of the book was not so good, but the ending is looking up. And, from what I hear the books get better and better as you go(there are 6 books in the series!)

I have not just been a book worm but also a couch potato! I watched all three seasons of Vampire Diaries, and all four seasons of Gossip Girl. I love Netflix.... how ever did we survive with out it!

Wishing I had a life....

So lately my life consists of work, school, and homework. I am going to be applying for nursing school this spring and I will hopefully start a program in the fall. I am finishing up my last prerequisites and they are soooo time consuming! Its exhausting. I am hardly ever home... which explains why its a disaster. I have a pillow and blanket in my car and I sleep whenever I can!

The things I miss the most about when I wasn't a student are:
*Random spontaneous weeknight movies
*Cooking dinners
*attempting to bake
*Walking my dog (poor neglected mutt)
*Date night with my hubby
*Reading books for fun
*Starting new TV shows, and keeping up with them
*Needless to say Blogging
I find myself tonight wishing away the next two years and hoping someday I will have a life again!

I suck at Blogging

Well hello to anyone who has not given up on my blog!! I have found myself swamped lately. I have been working at Intermountain Medical Center since November 2010 in billing.. and I have been missing working with patients so much. So I just got a new job at the University of Utah hospital.

I am going to be working as a C.N.A. in the Surgical ICU. I am SOOO excited for this change. I feel like I am finally accomplishing things with work and school to move me closer towards the ultimate goal... graduating with my RN. I wake up everyday saying "Someday it will all be worth it!" So even more changes as we start into the fall semester. John and I are both taking about 15 credit hours at SLCC, and eventually we will both be transferring up to the U to finish up our bachelors. I will hopefully graduate December 2014 and John should graduate May 2015 :)

We have had a pretty great summer. We of course were going to school all summer long, but we did get to go to my Grandpas in Colorado for his 75th birthday in July. We also were able to go to Montana for a week and spend time with my family. I do have pictures and I will post them later!
Now off to class!

Ahhh...Spring Break

Well spring break is here and almost gone! I must say SLCC I have not missed you one bit!!! It has been such a nice break away.... although my homework is still staring at me this very moment I am happily ignoring it. I have been using my free time wisely. I spent a good four hours organizing my office. Can I just say I don't know how John found anything in there!?! How he lived without me is a frightening thought. I happily found the 2008 taxes that were MIA when we needed them this year and I am happy to say that it is officially organized.
One project down 500 projects to go! ah the joys of home-ownership
I have also been catching up on all my favorite tv shows the bachelor, glee, and supernatural! I love having free time, although it will not last.... I am dreading Monday when it is back to my ridiculous life of working 40 hours a week and taking 12 credit hours..... BOO!

Can I just tell you I am in love with this movie!!! It is fantastic!! Cher looks amazing, and as always Christina is gorgeous! Its a must see.

A little late... But here was Christmas!

So this post is extremely late! I just started a new job over the Thanksgiving holiday and I am taking 12 credit hours this semester, so life has been pretty crazy. I am happy to say that John is now only working 1 job and I am planning on starting nursing school in Fall of 2012!!
So we had a very nice holiday this year. It was so mellow. Last year was so hectic because all the big holiday dinners and what not were at my house. So I loved just showing up and enjoying the day. We spent some of the day with John's Dad and Stepmom and some of the day with my family.

Connor is getting so big, and he loves his Uncle John. They are so fun the watch!

Connor was really excited about opening gifts this year. He would open a gift and then set them in a neat little pile then go onto the next!

For Christmas Eve Andrew, Aleta, and Connor spent the night in Fairview with her family so John, Crystal, Mom, and I went to Tepanyaki's for dinner! We had a good time and had delicious food!

December 7, 2010


We had a very low key Thanksgiving. It was SO nice! I didn't have to worry about making anything this year, I just showed up and enjoyed the food! It was awesome. Thanks Mom! Aleta made a gingerbread house and brought it up for us to decorate. Connor is getting so big!! He was very helpful, he also LOVED eating the candy. He is also going to be a big brother, my sister in law Aleta is pregnant and due in May.
I have been so excited for the holidays this year! I was jamming to Christmas music the beginning of November, and I had my Christmas tree up a week after Halloween!! I am a total nerd, but it has been so fun to have it up.
Happy Holidays everyone!

Connor & His Aunt Crystal

Decorating the gingerbread house... Looks yummy!
