New Blog Address

Wow, I really do have awesome friends! Seriously thank you all so much for your sweet comments, I feel so blessed to have such an amazing support system.
Okay so here's my new address, to see you all there soon. I've been putting this off for a while now because every time I would sit down to transfer all my friends from this page to my new one I seriously wanted to cry because do you even know how LONG that would take??!! So, here's what made me day; Brooke texts me and says she added somethen cute to my blog...I get on and badda bing, she has transferred them for me!! Whatever! I told her I would've still stayed friends with her even if she hadn't done that but whatever, jk. I love you Brooke thanks soooo much!

I know I've been a serious SLACKER in the blogging department and haven't been meeting my end of the bargain in displaying pics and posts for your viewing pleasure. Well, I do have a good excuse and promise to uphold my blogging obligations very soon.
There have been some huge decisions I have had to face in the last little while that have changed my life dramatically. As hard as and as heart breaking as it's been I'm trying to make the best of it and turn it into a positive situation. Some of you may know what's been going on and for those of you don't I promise everything is fine and the blog will be up and running in no time at all.
There are some things that I don't feel are necessary to post and are just a little too personal and hit too close to home to talk about just yet, but the basis of what is going on that Jackson and I are no longer going to be together. I feel slightly embarrassed to even have to announce this, partly because of my pride and partly because I can not for the life of my freaking self believe I am here again, but I know it'll come out in the works sooner or later and would much rather the info come straight form the source and not passed from one person to another and turned into something it's not, which is easy to do.
Jackson is a great person and I have zero animosity towards him. In fact I almost wish I did because it would make this situation a million times easier. One favor you can all for me is please don't be too quick to point the finger...meaning, this has been very difficult for both he and I and I'm sure very hard on our families and if there is one thing I have learned through this it is that our Heavenly Father is the only one that can judge, thank goodness, and Jackson is beating himself up over this enough and doesn't need anyone else to. He was a huge part of my life for a very long time & I hold he and his family in the highest regard and want them to know how much I love and respect them.
Marriage is something I take very seriously and it's hard not to feel like a failure when you have tried at something for sooo long and just can not seem to get it to work. That is why I am trying with my very best efforts to look back with no regrets and take everything I have learned to make me a better person and use it to strengthen me and use it for the future. I truly believe if you have learned from a situation, good or bad, then it's never in vain.
I have a great support system and do not know how I got so lucky. It's times like this that I feel closest to my Savior. I know I need him every second of the day to get through it which causes me to be completely dependent upon him. I have felt great peace and his overwhelming love for myself and for Jackson these passed few weeks and I know for a fact that there are many nights my sweet mom has had her arms around me giving me her comfort. It's crazy how sometimes trials can make your testimony grow so much!
I am absolutely okay and know it will only continue to get better. One of the things I hate most is when people feel sorry for me. I have hit a rough patch but will pick myself up and move on. I have such an amazing life full of people I love. I in no way feel cheated and am glad for the experiences I've been through. I feel very strong and know that one day I will be able to look back and understand a little more why certain things happen.
With that said, I will soon be changing my blog address and will post it asap so you all can change it on your friend list....I'm sure it'll be something lame like, haha. Willis is my dog/child for those of you who don't know. Thank goodness for my stupid little dog!!! Whoa, that was a looong post, thanks for sticking it out. TTFN

"Good Things Utah"

My Step-sis Jennifer has started up her own business, "Vintage Hem". They are these darling slips that go underneath skirts to add length and decor. Anyways she has done really well with it and has been on "Good Things Utah" in the past to kind of showcase them. If anyone is interested you should go to and check them out, you'll love them.
"Good Things Utah" asked her to to be on again and she asked me if I would wear one of the outfits to show off her cute slips. It was a really fun experience to watch the show behind the scenes and then get to meet all the girls on the show. Thanks Jen for thinking of me!

27th Birthday

I can not believe I'm freaks me out actually!! I had an awesome birthday though, my husband is super good at suprises and planning fun things! We went to "Thaifoon" for dinner(One of my very favorite spots), then we went and stayed at "Little America" and just watched movies and ate TONS of junk.. so fun! The next morning he got me up early and we drove to Park City where we went shopping at the outlets all day and did lunch and stuff. Such a fun day!! Thanks babe, I love you.

This was the only pic we took. Please excuse my husbands scowl, it's pretty much a rule of his that he can't smile in pics....bugs me sooooo bad!!!!

Book Club

This time Book Club was a Stephanies house. She made super delicious salads and brownies We ended up just hangen out and having a good time like usual. We read "Memory Keepers Daughter"....I'm almost done! Ha, I know I suck and need to quit slacken off so bad. Anyways, thus far it's an awesome book and totally has my attention! I'd for sure recommend it even though I'm not sure how it ends.
Oh my, why does this always end up happening when Brooke and I get together! Haha.
Us re-in acting a scene in the book where the baby is given away.

Happy Birthday Grandma Molly!!!

I just wanted everyone to know that I have the sweetest, most Christ-like, beautiful grandma ever... and today is her Birthday! I am so lucky to have her in my life. She has always been very involved in all of her grandchildren lives and played such an important role as a great example to all of us. I love the fact that even though my mom isn't with us anymore I still have my grandma around as a constant reminder of my mom. Thank you Grandma for the great example you have always been and for giving me the best mom anyone could ask for.

Christmas Night

Christmas night we went to my dads where we ate.....again, Holy Fat! Isn't that what Christmas is partly for though? Eating? I hope so because I always pretty much just bank on gaining ten lbs during the holidays. Anyways, we had a lot of fun just hangen out with everyone and spending time with my family. We are so blessed to be surrounded my so many people that love us and are there no matter what. My dad and Sam gave us a Blueray which went perfect with what I got Jacks. They are way too good to us.
