Mother's Day

Man, is it just me or is this year flying by? I cannot believe that in 2 days it will be May. Which means in 5 weeks Bryce and I will be married for 5 years. In 7 weeks, my baby girl will be 2!! And in just 8 short weeks, I will turn the big 3-0. Aaaaggggghhhhhh!!

So, with Mother's Day fast approaching, I was wondering what are you going to get your mother? Since, my mom lives so far away, I usually just send her flowers and a card. I would like to do something a little more special this year. So, if you have any thoughts please share. On another note, I have been "volunteered" by Bryce to help make the Mother's Day gift that is handed out to all the moms right after sacrament. Now, we could have gone the easy route and just gotten Hershey bars for all the moms, but we are doing something more creative this year. I only wish that I knew how time consuming it was going to be. Because if I had known then what I know now, we would have done the Hershey bars! Ivory and I spent over 7 hours yesterday (yes, 7) working on them and we are no where near done. The sad part is that this is my gift too. So, I am making my own gift. Hopefully, Bryce will realize how much time and effort that has gone into these and he will get me something wonderful! A girl can dream, right?

Work wife-more details

This lady is a co-worker and she calls at all times of the day. Last night she called at like 9:30. And Bryce knows when she is calling because he has caller ID. Now sometimes he doesn't answer, but 9 times out of 10 he does. I guess the lady's husband moved out and is filing for divorce and so she calls Bryce to tell him what her husband did now or whatever. I have said something to Bryce before about it and his answer is, she doesn't have anybody else to talk to. Ummm, that is not our problem. Anyways, I guess maybe I will try to talk to Bryce again about it.

Work wife?

Is my husband the only one who has a "work wife"? I guess, I should explain. There is a lady that Bryce works with, who calls him several times a week to talk about her life and all of her problems. Of course, Bryce is too nice to say anything to her, but it is starting to tick me off. Does anyone else have to deal with this?

I am now a Denver Broncos fan!

As some of you know, I am a huge Florida Gator fan. Of course, that means Tim Tebow too. Tebow is not only a great quarterback, but he is a phenomenal person as well. Tebow has had lots of critics saying that he would never make it in the NFL and that he wouldn't be drafted in the first round of the NFL draft. The draft analysts said that Tebow would possibly drafted in the 3rd or 4th round. Well, suprise, suprise. Tim Tebow was drafted in the 1st round of the draft. The Denver Broncos drafted Tebow as the 25th pick of the 2010 NFL draft! Tebow was drafted before Clausen and McCoy. So, to all the haters out there, give Tebow a chance to prove what a great player and person he is.

I have started this post 4 different times already and I just can't seem to get it right. With Easter being yesterday, I have thought alot about our Savior and the atonement. How grateful I am to be a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. To know the plan of salvation. To know that I will have an eternal family one day. Wth all of this in mind, our family and our community lost a precious child yesterday in a tragic accident. When you don't know what to say or how to say it, but want to help so badly and yet you can't. These are the times when we need to remember the gospel and the promises that we have been given, even as hard as it is. When, really during these times all you want to do is ask why. I know that there really isn't anything I can say, except that my heart is breaking and how much I love you all. I want to bear my testimony that I know that Thomas S. Monson is a living prophet. I believe in eternal families. I am thankful for my loving Heavenly Father; for my Savior that gave his life so that I may live. I love this gospel and I am so very thankful to have this knowledge. I know that as I stay close with the Lord and walk the straight and narrow path, that eventually good will win. I say these things in the name of thy son Jesus Christ. Amen.

"Each of us will taste the bitter ashes of life, from sin and neglect to sorrow and disappointment. But the atonement of Christ can lift us up in beauty from our ashes on the wings of a sure promise of immortality and eternal life. He will thus lift us up, not only at the end of life, but in each day of our lives."
--Bruce C. Hafen, "Beauty for Ashes: The Atonement of Jesus Christ, Liahona", Apr. 1997, 39

Is It Already April?!?!

I cannot believe that it is already April! Where has this year gone? Of course, maybe I am the only one who feels like the months have been passing me by like I am standing still. My tulips are slowly coming up. Cooper gets so excited every time we go outside. He always has to check on them and make sure they are still growing. I can't wait for them to bloom! Don't forget that today is April Fool's Day. So, be careful what you fall for!

P.S. My next post is going to be my 200th post!
