Life Lately in 6 bullets

It's been awhile since I have posted. Sometimes I read all the blogs I follow and love and it's takes so much time that I forget I have my own blog. To say the least it has been an incredibly eventful couple months both delightful and draining. So...

1. Thomas got a job at ICON health and fitness as an electrical tech!!! And yes he did get his degree in English with an emphasis in creative writing. And yes he does want to become an author. He promised me a super expensive dinner for the first book he gets published. I'm thinking about renaming my blog to, "The wife of an English Major, creative writing emphasis." I bet I'd be one of a kind. If not maybe It would feel good to know i'm not one of a kind.

2. We looked for a house to buy and we found this incredible one in Hyrum and our offer was not excepted. Then we found one in Logan and the same thing happened. They were both foreclosures so I felt like we had to wait weeks on both. We got kind of burnt out quickly because of budget is to small for our expectations. We are just going to have to be patient.

3. I quit my job at All About Kids. I knew I wanted to quit after I was done being a sub for a girl on maternity leave but it took an absolute terrible day with Asher being badly sick and me not being able to get off work. It pushed me over the edge and I was done. I didn't feel like putting my job before my family was something I was ever willing to do again.

4. I've learned to make some dang good bread. It's my sister's recipe and i'm getting it down pretty good. My house feels weird because i'm able to keep it clean. O ya and I actually cook something for dinner ever night. Asher and I have had a blast doing fun things together around our community. It's honestly hard to be a stay at home mom. I want to cry because I sometimes feel useless and board. But in my heart I know that I've tried and I don't want to be anywhere else but at home with my sweet boy.

5. I feel like something is missing. Most likely because there is. It could be a million things but gosh I want me another baby. It's been 21 months. That's almost 2 years. I've been to the doctor's. I tried a million and one things. I've read books. I've thought outside the box and done weird things. I've cried. I've read other's stories. I've told myself that if I wasn't ever able to get pregnant that I would be honestly happy because Asher is my pride and joy. It's still hard though. It's always hard to not get what you want. So we are hopeful    

6. Life is good! Asher is a stinking cutie. He is so sweet. He is so aware of me and my feelings. He is so creative and he does things that blow my mind because I don't think 3 year old's could be so smart and aware. He has a sense of humor that is so hilarious. Yesterday were threw around a pair of pants because we couldn't find a ball. We then chased each other around the house with a toy he thinks is scary. Gosh I love the little boy to pieces. And he knows it :D

Graduation Class of 2012

Thomas and I graduated together this past Saturday. It was a really surreal feeling. As I was walking up to get my half diploma I was overcome with emotion because we had put so much faith, time, energy and money into our degree's. I saw Asher and all our family in the stands and I was almost in tears. I did finish my classes in December but walking across the stage for some weird reason just made me feel awesome. I'm so grateful for everyone who came and supported us.  I'm glad we choose to do the whole ceremony thing. Thomas wants to become an author but in the mean while we are still brainstorming to see what he wants to do, so we can get in the position to where he can take care of our needs enough to start writing. Asher and I are still enjoying our job and we are excited for the summer.

So I got a job. It's at a Preschool called All About kids here in Logan. Asher and I have really liked it so far and look forward to our days there.

So Thomas and I are going to be doing the big real life fishing pond again at Baby Animal Days in Logan. The last attempt was kind of a traumatic downer, so I'm pretty scared out of my pants. Thomas however found a great sponsor and so we don't have to worry about losing almost everything. I'm pretty excited to see if we can have some success this time around.

So I totally cried like a baby with this weeks episode of the Biggest Loser. Haha I've never watched the show before and never got why people might cry. I totally understand now, you can totally get sucked into shows like that. I also watched the Bachelor for the first time and was pretty disappointing. Need I say more...

So Asher is getting really big. We haven't mastered the art of potty-training yet and I wish I would have before we started the new job but well get there. My mom bought a huge box of pull-ups. Asher is so sweet, kind and so aware of others feelings. He has so much energy. I love being able to communicate with him though words. His favorite things to do are read books and play with blocks. His guilty pleasure is drinking chocolate milk. He begs for it daily. That boy has a mind of his own for sure. If he has it set in there, he will find a way in or out of the situation. haha it kind of reminds me of his dad.

Our Kind of March

We have been out and about these beautiful March Days! It's so nice to be able to spend large majority's of our days outside. We drove up to second dam last Saturday. Then went fishing in the river behind our apartment a couple times. Then yesterday Asher and I took a stroller ride all the way up to first dam, played at the park and then took another stroller ride later. Haha, my legs hurt today but it was amazing weather and an amazing day!

Spread the word, to end the word!

I read his post and watched this video at Life as a Leach and really loved the message. I might have shed some tears, it just touched my heart. My niece is strengthened and grows through the same challenges as the sweet little girl of the women who writes this blog. I really love Piper Jane and miss her with all my heart. My sister-in-law also writes a lot about it on her blog to. Their stories inspire me and I seriously consider them as super women.

Gonna Get Over You

K! So this song is awesome! At the very end it has some random girl singing off-key in the middle of some random store isle. I think Sara Bareilles has started a new trend because I totally have done the same thing in Macy's the other day, it was totally a blast. My good friend Megan thought I was nuts. To bad I didn't get kicked out like the girl in the music video! That would have been wicked AWESOME!! 

P.S. I'm still madly in LOVE with my sweetheart! I just think the song is good

Gosh, some days I honestly miss Facebook. I didn't blog about my departing with it because for some reason writing about it to the whole world before didn't work the first time, so I decided to personally make the goal and then blog after I reached it. I have been Facebook free for over 2 months and my profile is actually totally deleted. I can't actually reactivate it even if I wanted to. Did you know that my spell check has me capitalize Facebook. That kind of gets to me.

Let's just say I was addicted. My mother has always told me to much of anything is not good for you. It was honestly taking away to much of my time and I honestly couldn't do it in moderation, like I had tried many many times. I was looking at people's profiles daily that I didn't even know. I took a second and looked at what I was doing and said holy smoking I am actually stalking people. I'm wasting my day stalking people. These special years in my life are worth way more then that and if I couldn't just have it be a casual thing that I was just going to get rid of it all together.

But.. some days I miss being able to go Facebook stock people that I love and miss. I miss looking at their updated pictures and wall posts trying to figure out how they are doing. I don't like being that last one to know all the juicy details or just not actually knowing any. But to me personally it's what needed to happen and I find myself a better person. Plus all of the people that are honestly a part of my life are all people who have numbers in my cell phone.

My cute boys!

We have been doing great lately. Thomas is enjoying school and work. He is only taking 6 credits his last semester and I think he feels weird with so much free time. I am just loving my modern dance class and enjoying every moment with my sweet little boy. Asher's vocabulary is just soaring and we are working really hard with the potty training. We have our days where I just want to pull my hair out but for the majority of the time we love our days. I applied for an in-home daycare job in which I can take Asher. It seems like it would be a lot of fun and hope it works out. We are loving out Primary Callings and I just love sharing singing time with the kids every week. The sweet spirit of those children sure is special.

Asher is enjoying a well deserved cookie at the end of his shoot. He is also trying to give Steph a piece because is simply a very sweet and giving little boy. Gosh I love the kid. THANKS so much Stephanie!!
