an update for the journal

Life has been so good for us lately.  We are feeling very blessed and happy :)
We are currently enjoying the last day of our 4 day weekend.  It's noon and we're still in our pj's ;) haha!  Utah celebrates pioneer day and I love it!  More bbq's and firework fun for July!  We spent the weekend visiting my in laws and we had such a great time!  We enjoyed a parade, tons of food, relaxing, and fireworks.  I was enjoying myself so much that I didn't even think to take any pictures.  Shame on me.

Anyway, here's a little update on me.  I've been so busy doing hair and loving it.  I feel so blessed to have a job I love, and clients that love me :) 
Lately I've been getting excited for the holidays but then I remember that I want summer to last as long as possible!  I am loving the warm weather and I spend as many days at the pool as I can! 
I've been trying to be a good wifey and bake for my man, but I just hate baking more than ever...haha!  I will not be that mom that has a fresh batch of cookies waiting for my kids when they get home from school :)

And here's the update on Eric.  Work has been keeping Eric so busy (such a blessing!  It hasn't always been this way for us.  I'll have to share our story on the bloggy.) He is such a hard worker and I appreciate everything he does for our little family!
School will start back up for him in August.  Does school feel like it's never-ending for anyone else? :)
Eric was just called as the young men's president in our ward.  We were shocked when he received this calling.  He's thinking it's payback for being a rotten teenager haha!  Even though this is going to make his life even busier, we're bother really excited about it!  My only complaint is that these boys are going to use up all of my camping points.  Remember how I've been wanting Eric to take me camping?!  I guess he'll be taking the boys camping instead....bummer!


The next few weeks of our lives are going to be crazy busy but I will have lots to blog about :)  As I said before, we are so blessed and happy, and we are so grateful for how great life has been for us!
Because every post needs a picture :)  And I don't always follow that rule haha!

If you'd like to get to know us better and have any questions about us (not saying you do-ha) please, ask away! :)

It's tough being busy all the time but at least when you do have those moments to just relax or spend more time together it will be even more worth it! I love hearing that you're happy! and that picture is gorgeous, one of my favorites of you two :)

YES, school feels EXACTLY like that to me too! especially when your husband hasn't even taken summers off for three years! it'll all be worth it in the end, right?? :)

Natalie and Trent said...

school does feel like that...but it does come to an end!! I always felt like Trent's graduation would never come and I think it still hasn't hit me yet that it's over..haha. I'm dying to know what exciting busy things you have planned the next few weeks. oh, and I was surprised to hear his new calling yesterday. That's super exciting!

Sometimes being busy at work is a real bummer becuase it keeps you away from your family BUT like you said, it's a blessing! :) In a world where SO many people are jobless, you have to be thankful (even if you are bummed too! ;))

Adorable picture!

Any plans for precious babies anytime soon? (NOT that it's my business, BUT you told us to ask! ;))

I'm so happy you two got a long weekend- what a blessing! Congrats to Eric on the bitter-sweet news of his new journey... hopefully God will allow him some good time management!! I know exactly the feeling of never-ending school. My friends all graduated this past spring and I am just beginning my junior year, thanks to all the delays life through at me... glad to know I'm not alone! By the way, that picture at the end is INCREDIBLE! I seriously think it's one of my faves ever. :) Good luck getting back to "the real world"!
