Most Magical Place

For Christmas, Blake and I decided to go to DisneyLand!!! I can't even begin to tell you how much fun we had. We drove to LA which wasn't bad at all, though there is nothing to look at except desert. We did get to see the world's largest thermometer=) I looked at before we left and it said that it was going to be the high 60's and low 70's. Now keep in mind that since it's winter and freezing in Utah I couldn't remember what these temperatures felt like. To me these sound chilly, so a light long sleeve shirt should be perfect. WRONG!!! We got to LA and about had heat stroke and had to go buy short sleeve tee shirts. We for sure looked like tourists. HA.
Now to DisneyLand. This was Blake's 1st time going and I believe my 4th. ***EVERYONE TAKE NOTE*** You must go between Thanksgiving and the week before Christmas!!! AND don't forget to do FASTPASS!!! We rode every single ride we wanted! I'm not kidding. At 10:30 we rode about everything on our list and went to California Adventure for a few hours then went back to DisneyLand for the parade. I think we were able to this because of a book that we read and we had a plan. You have to have a plan. All in all I cried 3 times because I was so happy. This is seriously the most magical place in the whole wide world! We did Disney Land and California Adventure in 1 day- We had a Disney hangover the next morning because we walked a ton and had so much fun!

Newport Beach- My Heaven

There were a ton of people fishing on this pier and we even saw a sea lion!

This is made out of legos. CRAZY!

Christmas Tree in Disneyland

In line for Toy Story at Cali Adv. We loved this ride!!!

Mr. Potato head

FAVORITE! I wanted to ride it again, but Blake said no=(

It's so funny how things look so much bigger when you are little, then you grow up and it's tiny!

Tea Cups

California Adventure

This is The World Of Color. It was amazing!!! Pictures don't do much, but in real life it's mindblowing how someone created this.

We had so much fun in California and can't wait to take our kids there some day. Oh and Merry Christmas<3

This 30 Day Deal is about to kill me.....

DAY 8: Short Term Goals For This Month
Get good grades this semester.
Drive to California without any accidents.
Egh... that's enough!

DAY 9: Something Your Proud Of
Surviving this semester.
Moving into a 2 bedroom apartment.
Going to a dance competition and not crying nor NOT exchanging some very choice words with a few people =)

DAY 10-16 SKIPPING!!!!

DAY 17: Someone I Would Switch Lives With For A Day... would be Jennifer Aniston. Hello what women wouldn't switched lives with her?!

I realized this past weekend... that even though I am not pregnant, have a child, a big house, or lots of money... I am happy. Yes I have my ups and downs like every other women, but it really hit me that I am happy. Seriously though I was sitting there and it really hit me; It was a pretty neat experience for me to feel like this right now. I am lucky that I have an amazing husband and amazing parents! I no longer have the stress on the back of wretched parents and teenagers. I can live and enjoy life! I no longer have my heart pounding out of my chest every time my phone rings or when I get a new email. The Lord is no my side and I just have to faith that he knows what is best for me, not anyone else, and he will lead my in the right direction. I no longer have to live in a tiny shoe box. I am a married women who is loving life!
I have also come to realize that I have been more emotional now than ever in my life... I cry about every movie I watch even if it's about a dog! Those St. Jude Children's Hospital commercial gets me very time! Okay really anything about cancer gets me. My fish died (I had him for 3+ years) and I cried, though I flushed him down the toilet but cried. I guess I am my mothers daughter. I used to think 'jeeze my mom cry's a lot about the dumbest things in movies' well now that is me! FUNNY!

Someone/Something That Has Had A Big Impact On Me...
Brother West:
Growing up outside of Utah, I had early morning seminary. I got up around 5:30am and went to seminary at 6am. First year was exciting, second year was good, third year was tough, and fourth year I didn't think I could do it anymore but I graduated!! My first 3 years my teachers was Brother West. I only wish there were more Brother Wests in the world. My first year was his first year and he had only been a member of the Church for a couple of years before that. I learned so much from about the scriptures but also life lessons. My third year (his last year), I was behind and he offered extra credit which was helping his elderly neighbor fix up her yard a bit. I was the only one who showed up. That 2 or 3 hours were... well I don't really know how to explain it but I enjoyed every minute of it. We talked about the church and struggles in life. At the end of doing yard work he told me I would get the extra credit for helping and I told him that I no longer wanted it. He was shocked and but that's what he taught us. You shouldn't do good for a reward, you should just do good. I know I can't really tell things every good, I guess you just had to be there but I will never ever forget that time I had with Brother West. He was married and had 3 beautiful daughters. Twins Savannah and Olivia and baby Madalyn. Brother West died of Cancer (I was here in Utah), I got to talk to him before he died. It was really hard not to cry on the phone but the one thing that we talked about was "the one". He gave me some great advice about knowing whether or not that person was right for me to marry. I cried for along time when I found out he had cancer and when he died. He was the most Christ like person I have ever met. Sometimes I think about him and what he is doing... I still get teary eyed thinking that he is no longer with us, but I know we will see him again someday. I know that when I got married in the Temple, he was there=)

Delta SemiFinal Play Off

Blake and I skipped school yesterday to go up north to The University of Utah football stadium to support Hadley!!! We left Cedar around 10am and went shopping<3 It's been forever since I've been in a mall! Blake and I have been feeling oddly sick so I really couldn't shop hard core, but took some medicine and found some jeans!!! I love it when I buy something new. Buying something new and wearing just gives ya some much confidence. Aww I just love shopping<3 Anyways after spending some money, we went and ate at Texas Roadhouse- YUM! Then we hurried up to the U and froze our bums off! The Rabbits had a great season and unfortunately lost to Hurricane High. The final score was 7 to 36... I'm pretty sure? In football, you win as a team and lose as a team so there should be no finger pointing. We are really proud of Hadley!!!

A picture of a place I've been...

This is the Neuschwanstein Castle, it's in Germany. You know Disney's castle? Well they are based off this European castle. I went to Europe with my father the summer before 9th grade. Europe is such a beautiful place!

I also got to go to Dachau Concentration camp. The gate translated says "Work Makes You Free". It was so interesting to see everything, like where they slept, the gas chamber, and the incinerators. You could feel the spirit there but just made you so sick to your stomach to know how many lives were lost there.

The trip was interesting... I think it would be very strange if I said I had a blast, my ex-step mother is crazy and had bipolar moments about every day (and this happened every stinking vacation!!!). Even though she is the mother of my 2 wonderful half sisters, I bet you can tell that I'm not very fond of her. Though it's very sad that my dad has been divorced twice (he can really sing "All My Ex's Live In Texas") and my sisters will have the same questions as I did with divorce parents, which hopefully will not affect their lives in a big way, but anyways.... at least I can I've been to Europe=)

A Habit That I Wish I Didn't Have...

Okay before you judge me about my habit, remember that it's a habit I wish I didn't have. I've notice that I let other people's attitude effect my attitude. Like if I'm having a super great day and then talk to someone who is just hating the world, then it rubs off on me and just ruins my day! Also if you say you are going to be somewhere at a specific time and your not, it just throws me off and ruins my day. For example, Blake said he was going to be home at 12 so I made him some soup and he was 10 minutes late and it was cold=/ I don't know why it affects me so bad, but it just does! And when we say we are going to leave at 5:30, I expect to leave at that time. It gives me anxiety if we leave 10 minutes late. I know I'm strange...

Pictures With Friends...

Considering that they live in TX and I am here, most of these pictures are from high school.


Senior Drill Team Pictures



Texas Wedding Reception

I'm going to be very honest, ever since I have left for Utah things with my friends haven't been the same. I also think that me being so far away from home, made me grow up faster and realize what things are really important to me. I know when we are in high school, that is our world and think that it is everything! Ha and then you get to college and no one cares. It's so funny... Okay it's stupid really. But as teenagers that is all we know. I absolutely loved high school!!!! We were glued to each other. It makes me sad how everything has played out with us, and I know we aren't close anymore but I know that I will keep in touch with them.
Thanks for all the good memories yall<3

The Meaning Behind Our Blogg's Name...
Once upon time, there was this girl and boy and one day this girl (a college freshman) walked into an English class and sat right in front of this boy. She thought he was sooo cute, but just waited for the right time to say anything to him. After talking to him and finding out that he was from Delta, she was thrilled! (No one can pass up a Delta boy) The girl hated english class but only went just to see this handsome boy.
One day she went to class waiting to see his face walk through the door, but never showed. After a couple of weeks, she knew he wasn't coming back to class. But as college freshman girls are, she just wanted to play=) After the school year was over, a cute boy came into her work. She didn't realize that it was the boy she was in love with from her english class. They talked and chatted and he left. She couldn't believe that he didn't ask for her number...
Fall semester came and her friend knew that she needed someone good in her life, so he gave her number to that cute boy. The boy texted her a while and then called to ask her out on a date. It took 9 months from the time they met to have their first date. The girl knew that this boy was VERY special and had a feeling from their first date that he was 'the one'. About 9 months later they were married and decided to create a blog; and the rest is history<3

The World Just Keeps Spinning

It's been a very long time since our last post.
I don't even know where to start...
Blake I are now an uncle and aunt, to sweet baby Briggs. I saw this outfit last week that said "My auntie is awesome" and I just had to buy it for him. He is so spoiled;)Rex's surgery went well and the cancer hasn't spread, but because it's esophageal cancer they want to do some more chemo just to be safe. He will start that process again soon and he isn't very thrilled.
Blake and I started school. I feel like we will be in school our whole life. I don't see the light at the end of the tunnel. We aren't even half away till X-mas break and I about have a nervous break down every other day.
The fact that I resigned as Cedar's Drill Team Coach just adds so much more. Yes, that's correct I quit. I had to stand up for myself. I wasn't going to be apart of something that was so wrong. I will not throw away my integrity. It drives me absolutely crazy that I can not stop thinking about it and I just picture myself sitting there at the table being bashed about for 3 hours! I found out that my blood pressure is high, and I know for a fact that it's because of that whole situation. I do believe that if I would have stayed, I would have had a heart attack.-I'm not being a drama queen- If you only knew what crap I put with you would understand. No one should EVER be treated the way I was. I don't think some people really understand what it means to be a Christian, and to treat others the way Christ would. It just blows my mind. I wish I could just take a pill that would erase my memory of the past 7 months. I knew it would tough, and I was up for the challenge, but I didn't think it would end up like this. I feel as if I am ruined. A person can only take so much emotionally and mentally. I don't really understand what Heavenly Fathers purpose was for me and why it all played out the way it did. I did learn what kind of parent I will never become and what kind of child I want to raise. I know that I am the way I am because of growing up in the south. I am grateful for my parents and raising me into such a respectful adult. I truly miss Texas, Utah just doesn't compare with the respect meter... It'll probably take me a long time to get over everything because just the stupid little things get to me. For example, we went to Delta to watch Hadley play football and their drill team performed and I started to cry. I pretty lucky to have support from other coaches, parents, friends, and of coarse my family. THANKS!
Bad noteS... The tanning salon that I work out it closing!
My last day is September 29.
I won't be done with school for another 2 1/2 years.
Which I am just so thrilled about! And puts off having kids...

I swear it's just one thing on top of another.

Summer Happenings

Lots has happened these past few months. Blake is working at CAL Ranch and is loving it. He comes home with a list of things he wants and we spend like half of his pay check there. Ha! I have been doing Mohey this summer and working at Southwest Tanning Salon. I took my officers to Officer Camp and I was blown away with how talented they are! I'm so lucky to have such great officers. We had team camp at home this year and we all slept in the gym together! I must say I'm a freaking amazing coach, along with my assistant, for sleeping there. Good memory but was very glad to go home and sleep in my own bed with my husband next to me=) I'm so proud of the girls and how they handled camp- it was hard and pushed them very hard, but did awesome! The routines were great and can't wait till competition!!! Cedar celebrated the 4th on Monday so Blake and I got to go to Delta Saturday. We weren't able to go to the parade=( because Blake had to work but we hustled over there to go to the DERBY! I felt like this year it wasn't as good as past years because the announcer was not my favorite- they need to get my Uncle Jim back!- and there wasn't very many people in the heats. After spending Sunday in Delta we came back to Cedar. The girls performed so good in the parade and got so many compliments. Once again, I'M SO PROUD!!! Right now we have a break and get July off but as soon as August comes we are back to practice.

My cute little team at camp=) Love them!

4th of July Parade

Blake and I went home to Texas to visit my family and to be there for Rex's surgery. The surgery is a pretty big deal and was scheduled for that week but unfortunately his white blood cells were too low so had to reschedule it for next week. My mom is such an amazing person and is doing a great job taking care of Rex. When we first got there I could hardly look at Rex because you could tell that he was in alot of pain and it just broke my heart. This cancer is really beating Rex down and hopefully this surgery will take care of it. Rex is the type of guy that will do anything for anyone. A couple of his friends came by to cheer him up and you could tell that they were really lucky to have a friend like him and were very concerned about him. The day we found out that Rex wasn't going to be able to have his surgery we got into a car accident! We were on the fwy and some 18 rear ended me. What happened was some stupid thug was backing up on the shoulder fast and was swerving into my lane and everyone slammed on their breaks. Our plan was to trade my car out there for a truck but for some reason that was not in Heavenly Father's plan... and my car is in the shop=( So as soon as my car is fixed, we are selling it and getting a truck. I do feel like we could of spent more time with Rex than going to go look at trucks. It was really hard to leave and even thinking about it makes my tear up. I love my family more than anything in this whole world and it sucks that they are so far away. I'm lucky to have Blake's family so close and love them with all my heart but it's just not the same.

Family Picture

Blake and I met up with my gal pals from high for dinner one night. It was really good to see them and to catch up on what is happening in their lives. I do miss those old days of hanging out at each others houses laughing nonstop about everything and going on crazy drives around town. GOOD TIMES=) I think Blake felt a little awkward because he was the only guy. I have the best husband ever though!

High School Besties

Beautiful Sunset somewhere in New Mexico

Now it's just work work work and no play... When I have a few days off Blake has to work, and when he has a day off I have to work. Life does not go according to plan sometimes. But you got to love it!

Making Lemonade...

Life has thrown my family a ton of lemons at us... my mom says we will be making a ton of lemonade.
My step-dad has been diagnosis with esophagus cancer. They caught it pretty early but he can't swallow anything... The word cancer is a pretty scary word and for some reason I always picture the devil's face when I hear that word- probably because it's so awful! Anyways growing up I hardly ever heard of anyone getting cancer and then when I came to college it's like as common as the flu or something. It just seems that more and more people are getting it. The first person I knew real well that had cancer was my seminary teacher. He was probably the most spiritual person I ever knew. When he became my teacher, he hadn't been a member very long, he just has the coolest life story about his conversion story to getting married and having the most beautiful daughters- I wish someone would write a book about him because he seriously was an amazing man.
How about some good news now?! Well Blake and I will be an uncle and aunt to Jesse and Natasha's baby BOY! I knew it was going to be a boy=) We are so excited and thrilled for them! Blake will have to put me on a tighter budget because I will want to buy him everything. This little one will be so spoiled because he has so many people that are going to love him so much! I just can't wait till he gets here!

I'm A Terrible Blogger

Alot has happened in the past month, let's recap...
For spring break Blake and I went down to Vegas with some of our friends for a few days. The resort was amazing, had a ton of fun, and got to see some interesting people. It was nice to get away from the snow. After Vegas, we fly to Houston to go visit my Dad down there. We went to the Houston Rodeo- Blake was in heaven! We also saw Brooks and Dunn in concert. My mom came up to see us and we went with her to the Houston Temple and then to Kemah. Plus we did a little shopping=) I was glad she came up for a day.

Viva Las Vegas

Houston Temple

One of my little sisters gettin attacked by deer and goats

As for right now, Blake and I are just getting ready for finals! I'm so glad that it's almost summer=) I wish it was summer all year round. Blake is working at Cal Ranch and I am looking for a job that will work around Mohey. They are the sweetest girls and I love being their coach. GOO MOHEY=)
Some bad news though... Blake's beloved horse, Cadillac, past away last Friday. He had him since Blake was 12 years old and has won alot of ropings on him. He was a good old horse. I just hope there is a Heaven for animals or else I will be so sad. I know I will be a mess when my old dog, Bandit dies- he is back home in TX with my family... Yes we still have Baby Ace who is getting so big!

Grrreat News!!!

So we have some great news! No I'm not pregnant. I was actually wondering if we should be trying to start a family because it feels like everyone else was pregnant and having babies. But now I know that it's just not our time yet, that will come in due time. But the great news it that I am the new Head Coach of the Drill Team at Cedar High School! I saw that they were taking applications and thought 'why not try? I have nothing to loose.' So I did=) Had a good interview and won their hearts over! I'm really excited and have some big shoes to feel since they won state this year, but I am ready for the challenge. I just hope that I can be as good as my director was. She was such a great role model to me and I want to have a great impact on the girls as she was to me.

Where Has The Time Gone

Wow, it's been awhile since we've updated our blog...
There has been lots going on. Blake and I are back in school. Not that busy as last semester but we still have plenty of studying and homework. We figured out that I will graduate in Fall 2011! And Blake will be applying for pharmacy school about the same time I will be done, so we will luck out (hopefully).
But let's back up. Over the break my parents came to Delta to stay awhile. It's always a good time when they come! We had a great Christmas Eve, even though I had to sit on Santa's lap (I was one of those kids who was afraid of Santa, and I haven't seemed to shake that off yet), but it was good to have everyone there at the Myers. Waking up Christmas day next to my husband was awesome! We got alot of presents... and a new puppy, Ace! He is a austrialan shepard border collie and he is so funny! He loves the snow! We also had the adventure of helping my family give shots and pregger checking a cow. Yes, I stuck my arm up it's bum and felt a baby, soo cool! But they have some very wild cows and one tried to attack me!!! I went to close the gate behind it and the cow ran at me, thank goodness for watching rodeos because I jumped on the fence and that stupid cow missed me by a second. Fewww! Blake about had a heart attack. HAHA. We also went duck hunting in freezing weather! We took Jaxon and he had a good time too.
It was good to have a break from school and to be with our family. Thanks everyone!

Christmas Eve- What a good lookin family!

I say no more...

The twins had their baby blessing. They looked so cute in their little tuxes!

Blake's family and my family all went sledding together at TV Hill... so fun!

Having a Nativity scene with 2 "baby Jesus" with cowboy Joseph and 2 cleaning wise men.

Went to go see the lights at Temple Square. So Beautiful!
