tadah! we decided that it would be more convenient just to blog together.
now you can be updated on both of our lives at the same time!
today marks the 2 week anniversary of our blissful married life.
{and by blissful, i mean absolutely 100% fantastically wonderful}
we were suppose to move to del rio, texas on january 4th.
right now...we are living in north salt lake, utah.
as you can see there is some serious confusion in these two scenarios.
it's a long and complicating story, but the gist of it is:
we will be in utah until february 6th! yay!
this gives us a lot more time to see family and friends, as well as a moment to
breathe and enjoy being together as newlyweds.
i know i've said it before, but being married really is
everything i ever wanted it to be and more.
i'd be lying if i didn't say it is different trying to incorporate two lives into one.
not hard.
just different.
but there is nothing more worth it.
i love being able to snuggle up to my cute boy every night,
and waking up to this face every morning...

delightful isn't it?
he takes such good care of me.
i fall more and more in love with him every day.
i can't believe that i am actually living this life!

do you believe in magic?

i sure do now!

to me, magic is waiting your entire life for your wedding day
and having it go perfectly.
magic is being able to spend time with more family and friends
than imaginable and relishing every moment of it.
and lastly, magic is leaving the party that was thrown just for
you and your honey and being ten times more in LOVE than
when the day began.

everything was so wonderful all day long.
i've heard so many times that it can be a stressful day and we may
not even have time to think of each other,
but it wasn't like that at all!
i owe it all to my handsomely incredible husband.

        that is so fun to say!!

i have an overwhelmingly extreme feeling of love.
it feels like i am going to burst at the seams any minute now.
this boy that i have been in love with for months is
finally mine forever!!

being married is everything i could ever want and more
and our wedding day will most definitely go down in history as
the most magical day of my life!

today is the day!

i love to see the temple, i'm going there today....
i have always wondered how i will feel on the day that i go through the
temple for the very first time.
let me tell is exhilirating! 
i feel all nervous inside because i've never done it before.
but at the same time i am more than ecstatic to be closer to my 
Father in Heaven than i have been since i can remember.
i am very grateful for my friends and family that have 
sacrificed their time to be with me. 
i can't think of a better way to spend this happy occasion 
than with the people i love!
the church is true and i am so happy to be a part of it!!

ode to josè

let's go back to May 15, 2010.
there i am.
little 19 year old me getting ready to move out into the big world in a couple months.
what is a number 1 necessity for living on your own? a car.

i'm pretty sure i looked for at least 8 months prior to this for the perfect car. 
one that wasn't too ugly, but still affordable.
i got a call from my pops that day and he said he found one!
i called my bestie katlin and we went and test drove it.

sure, it had 168,000 miles on it. 
sure, the paint was peeling on the hood.
sure, you couldn't unlock the driver's side door from the outside.
sure, the cd player would skip all the time.
and sure, it was squealy when it was cold outside.

but i didn't care.
it was a good little car.
the next day i wadded up what little money i had and bought
my very first car... josè.

fast forward 8 months {yesterday}
i sold josè...sniff sniff.
thank you little buddy for the memories.
thank you for getting me to ephraim and logan safely.
and thank you for not freaking out when i popped your tire.
you will always hold a special place in my heart.

it's that time of year...

no, your eyes are not deceiving you.
we haven't even had thanksgiving yet, but my blog is now decorated for 
this is my most favoritest holiday that there has ever been.
there is something about it that is different from everyday life.
i don't mean just christmas day either. i mean all of december.

i love the music that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside.
i love how everyone is happy and cheery.
i love the christmas movies that come around once a year. {ok maybe i don't always save those for just christmas time. elf is a year-round fav}
i love having an excuse to make hot chocolate and cuddle up in my pajamas.
i love all of the christmas decorations, especially the lit up houses.
i love eating candy canes. {they're like christmas in your mouth} 
i love decorating our christmas tree.
i love the gift exchanges.
i love the thoughtful kind hearts of others that seems to be more openly shown around this time.
i love the focus that we are able to have on our Savior, Jesus Christ.
i love the all around good feeling that accompanies this joyous month.

along with the things listed above, this christmas just got even better, 
believe it or not.
the reason being that just three days afterwards,  
i'm getting married!!!

oh what a blessed fantabulous day!
