Well I am to the 'cleaning and throw everything that was forgotten in the trailer' phase of the loading! Thanks to some great friends and ward help! I can not wait for this part to be over! I enjoy moving, but packing,loading and cleaning alone sucks! Thank full some wonderful people have taken pity on me! And I love them for it!

So the above is why I haven't posted anything lately! I will have some pictures hopefully soon! But other than loading, my life is boring at the moment!

OH! I did get to go to Utah for BYU graduation to see my wonderful sister in law walk! It was great and we had fun! However I forgot my camera so I have to steal some off someones camera! Pictures coming soon I hope! It was great to see my wonderful friends the Willis', and I am soooooo thankful to them for watching the kids so they didn't have to sit through 2 hours of graduation two days in a row! They played instead!! Love ya MJ!


I have had two friends lose their babies this week. One was a month old, the other was 5 1/2 months pregnant. So for all of us, hug, hold, rock, say I love you, something for your sweet children. And thank Heavenly Father for the opportunity you have to love and have them in your lives. My heart goes out to my two friends. You are in my thoughts and prayers continually, as you have been as of late! I am here for you.

I am so thankful for the opportunity we all have to have eternal families. I love and cherish mine!

Easter cuteness!

We didn't get to wear our new Easter outfits on Easter since two of us were sick and so we all had to stay home, so we wore them this week!

Great week!

I have been having a great week! I have packed a ton! Gotten rid of stuff, and still had time to rest and enjoy my kids! My living room is now empty! I just got rid of my sofa and love seat!!! (New ones coming, will have in use after we move!) It really feels like it is starting to happen. We are moving! To be with Dustin!!! He is coming home soon!!! It is all starting to feel real! I can not wait!
I was thinking today as I was driving to a friends parents for a baby shower, this is a great friend I have been friends with since we were 8 years old, so she knows every part of my life. Past secrets and everything up to now! Now, I have some really strong past connections to her family. Anyway as I was driving I was thinking how much we have all changed. We are all married, have moved to and from different places, have or are having kids, the list goes on. Back in the days I was not a very positive, independent person. Since however I have grown and changed a lot, in major part to two things. First, the love of my life, Dustin! He has been the best earthly thing to happen to me. He has changed my life for the better! I now have to many smile lines under my eyes from how happy he has made me over the years, no joke! Second, is that I have gained a very close relationship with my Father in Heaven. He helps me everyday, more than ever in the last 2 years with Dustin and I apart. These two things have changed me from the girl people of my past remember. Now I can pack and move my entire family to a different state with little help. I can plan and arrange everything that needs to be done for my family. I am no longer the dependent, depressed girl. I have to many blessings to count! And I can do anything!!! Anyway, all this came to me as I was driving 'back to the past', or to the baby shower, whatever. I still love those wonderful people, but I am so different! And so are they! My 'first love' has married and has kids, as have I,(to my TRUE love!). My good friend has changed into an amazing beautiful person, about to become a mother,(she will be a great mother!). I am thankful the Lord knows what he is doing! And that he helps us get to where we need to be, even if at the time, it seems off to us. He truly knows me and who and what I need. He knows that I needed Dustin to brighten my life. To understand me like no one else can. To be my best friend. To bring me the gospel. He is my hero, my love, my life, and I am so thankful to Heavenly Father for Bringing him to me! We have three amazing kids, I couldn't have hand picked better ones! They are each so smart and beautiful. So full of love and joy and life. They are just right for our family. They complete us. I am not sorry things have changed from 20 years ago. I couldn't have imagined a better life!
I can not wait to move and be with Dustin again. I will miss all my wonderful friends, as I always do! But I am so ready for this move and change in our lives.
Anyway, I have had a good week! The sun has even been out a few days!!! I hope you all have also had a good week!


I taught a coupon class tonight and it was so fun! You could see the lights coming on as everyone started to understand how they can really save money! It was great! I love sharing things with others that can really make a difference in their lives! I really had a great time and hope everyone else did too, and learned!!! I hope to see you in the store with your binders!!!

Come learn to save!

So, as some of you know I have become a coupon clipper! And have saved about $700.00 in the last 2 months! AND I have been building my food storage at the same time! So I have saved money, spending about half my previous food budget, and I have a bigger food storage!

And my friends in the area have asked that I teach a class on how to save, so if you want to learn and you live close by, come on out! ( I except to see all my Clark Ward friends there!)

Thursday night, 7pm! Email if you want more info or directions!!!

Of coarse there are a few site links on the right that can help! Even all you out of state 'rs!

(Yeah, I took this picture!)

I am a Monster Truck Lover!!! We had the best time! Half the time I think I was more excited than Jake was!!! So I got us GREAT seats! Front row! So we didn't miss a thing! They were also VIP tickets so we got to go to the Pit Party before hand! So we got there at about 5:30pm and went to start the fun! We first went and got some souvenirs, T-shirts and a checkered flag for the drivers to sign, and yes we got every drivers signature! Then we went for a ride in the back of a Monster Truck! The had 2 trucks with seats along the sides in the back, that took you from one end of the arena to the other and back, doing a few cookies in between! It was so cool! Then we went and got food and headed to our seats! The place was packed, very few empty seats! And soon the real fun started! I got a ton of awesome pictures! So I have a few slide show I am going to load and below are a few of my favs!!! (I took so many pictures that I filled my card and had to hurry and go threw and delete the blurry ones so I could take more! Twice!)
