BOO! BEWARE! Brad's friends like to come over and play fifa 2011.
They also like the cookies I make.
Do you think they come for fifa or cookies?
I would like to think cookies....

Brad and I carved our pumpkin tonight. Brad did all the dirty work of cleaning out the pumpkin and I carved it! I really wanted to do an owl and tried to find templates online.. but I ended up free handing it.. Yay an owl! I love owls... they are so cute!!!
This is us... last year. We were cute huh...

Yesterday I worked and when I came home I was not looking forward to doing laundry. I got the best surprise ever when I walked in the door. our apartment was spotless. and...


you see doing laundry is a big deal cause we don't have a washer/dryer in our apt. NOT fun. I will NEVER do it again. I miss the convenience of having them right in my closet. My husband is the greatest. PERIOD.



So I just read this amazing love story @ writingrainbows.blogspot.com I found this girls blog one day and I just love reading it!!! So go read her love story its sooooooooooo cute! Anyways after reading hers I decided I wanted to write MY Love story.... here we go..
The summer of my life was coming to a close, my friends had all moved away to college, and Trista and I were left alone. Trista, Vanny, Jessica, Ash, and I had spent like every night together that summer and I learned a lot and played hard! I don't think I would've been ready for what was soon coming if I hadn't have had the experiences I had over those short months of June, July, and August. I would say I had become this independent, confident, happy-go-lucky, 'I do what I want' type of girl and for the first time I was single... For the first time I knew exactly WHO I WAS. I loved life, I knew the gospel was true! and... I lived by the following quote...
"Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can't change. Take chances. Tell the truth. Date someone totally wrong for you. Say no. Spend all of your cash. Fall in love. Get to know someone random. Be random. Say I love you. Sing out Loud. Laugh at a stupid joke. Cry. Tell someone how much they mean to you. Let someone know what they are missing. Laugh until your stomach hurts. Live Life. Kiss slowly, Play Hard, Forgive quickly, Take chances, Give everything, and most of all have no regrets! Life's too short to be anything but HAPPY!"
In high school everyone always said that I would be the first of my friends to get married... and what do you know... I was... Probably because I was always with a guy whether it was a good decision or not... I was really boy crazy... But the relationships and "dating" that I did have set up my life so perfectly. So let me take you back to 2007. To the beginning of my Love Story...
The night officially began @ a back to school dance @ UVSC... I love dancing and I don't care how stupid I look when I do so... just ask my friends... So I was surprised when guys wanted to dance with me especially on this occasion. However, One amazing looking guy happened to step into the maddness and ask me to dance. I am ashamed to say that I did walk away from him after a few seconds. :( He told me before I ran away, that if I saw him again we should hook up! haha I was into being a big flirt with the boys and playing them so I said yeah... ok......... and ran off.
As the dance went on I didn't run back into this amazing guy.. UNTIL Trista and I were leaving. I know that I looked horrible and he was all sweaty, but we exchanged numbers and names..oops i forgot his name! :) and about an hour later he texted me! My heart started pounding and I got SO nervous!!! I left my friends to join this mysterious man hoping that I wouldn't get kidnapped! I finally ended up at his friends apartment and we put on the movie Talledega Nights. I felt so COMFORTABLE with him. More comfortable than I had ever felt before in my life. We started talking and never stopped. I could talk to him forever and not get bored or tired of it. I felt like we had known each other forever. He asked me if I thought I would kiss him before I got there. I answered honestly.. YES.. (Like I said I was EXTREMLY confident).. and then... He kissed me. It was so simple. . The best part is that I broke a bet he had going with his friend's mom-to not kiss any girls. Apparently I was worth it to him.
Our first official date: was with a married couple. on a sunday.
going to see the Joseph Smith Movie.
I know what you're thinking. We were on the right path to a fast Mormon engagement.
That day I realized that I was beginning to fall deep into like with him. My dreams were truly coming true.
It all started when he opened the car door for me & held my hand in the car.
During the next couple weeks I learned a lot about my Bradley...
His favorite movie is Top Gun, He is hilarious, He's a gentleman, loves shopping with me, Sports are his passion... especially BYU at the time, he has an amazing family, He gets along with practically everyone. We officially became a couple at the Utah State Fair on September 6, 2007 when I sorta forced it on him...

After that things just took off!

My parents adored him along with the rest of my family. Which was a big deal! We spent everyday together and fell more in love everyday. Bradley first said the 'L' word to me in October of 2007 just a few weeks after we had become official.. a few weeks later we began slowly talking about marriage, and then one day in February or March he mentioned that maybe we should start looking at rings! It was one of the best days of my life! Would I really be marrying the man of my dreams and my best friend????
On April 5, 2008 Bradley set up a wonderful night. We went out to dinner with lots of friends and then went to my parents house to watch a "movie". I would soon find out that this movie was a fraud and a few minutes in a homemade video by Brad popped onto the screen. I will always have this with me!!! After the intro with the movie Bradley got down on one knee and pulled out my ring and a dozen roses!!
We began making wedding plans and set the date of July 31st 2008. We were married for time and all eternity and have lived happily ever after ever since! I know that bradley would do anything for me and I the same for him! I'm so glad that I met him! My life would be sooooo different if I hadn't and I love my life!


This week rushed on by... I picked up an extra shift.. yay... closer to 40 hours. I worked at the store I was originally supposed to work at, but after moving down here found out they had lied to me! It was fun though. I always like picking up shifts and meeting new people. Every pharmacy is so different! Last night Bradley and I went to Club Crawl-One street full of clubs and bars closes down and they set up lots of stages and have a different band playing at each one every hour starting at 8 and the last at 1. We were officially designated drivers... yes!-we got free coke haha Bradley's friends are slowly becomming my friends... I remember lots of occasions of them telling me they loved me, that I'm a good sport, that I am their favorite person ever... I think that it was the alcohol talking! But one kid that is in brad's class, but not particularly a "friend" who definitely had too much to drink, came and asked who I was and when I told him Brad's wife he whispered in my ear that I was really lucky and that brad is so sweet and sensitve about me. hahaha This happened just after him going up on stage and singing background to Garth Brooks-friends in low places when he wasn't supposed to! The night went on way into the morning and before we knew it there were 8 of us squished into our little malibu... and we didn't get home until about 4... ahhhh needless to say I was exhausted. I don't know how people party all the time like that.. My body could NOT handle it! I got a good nap in today thank goodness! We made delicious oreo cookies... it's probably the easiest and quickest treat ever.. Bradley loves them.. Only a week and a half until we get to go to utah to visit!!! yay!!! I have big plans haha its not the longest trip but I have a long to do list! I need more white downeast shirts....and we are going to the dentist... we haven't been able to get a new dentist here yet... plus our old one is amazing so why not!!! We have new nesters family home evening tomorrow. I love that our ward does this cause it's hard to do fhe for just the two of us... Hope the week went well for everyone and hope that this week will be great! Time for me to join Bradley in bed.. he's been there since 9... poor guy... he didn't get to nap like me!


Bradley's Wounds... Both arms looked like that.... basically a mummy...but only one leg received damage.......
He is finally healing! Now I just have to stop him from picking at his sick scabs every 5 minutes! He compares them to Beef Jerky... GROSS!!!
Brad&Me at the last U of A game..

So the other day after Bradley went to the doctor for a sinus infection I got a call from him asking if I could come home to help him because he got in a wreck on the SCOOT SCOOT!!! A gazillion things popped into my head because I'm such a worry wort and I rushed home from work. When I got home the poor guy was just walking around not knowing what to do! I felt so bad for him! So we cleaned out the wounds on his palms, elbows, and his leg and tried to bandage him up as best as I could and I left to go back to work. I am so grateful that nothing worse happened to my Bradley! Here are the details of the wreck.. he was cruising along on a one lane road and suddenly without signaling the car infront of him decided to stop to turn left. So Bradley had to suddenly stop as well.. and when he did the scoot-scoot slid out from under him and went the other way. The scoot scoot, like Bradley came away with a few cosmetic scratches so it still runs.. yay... however while falling... brads new phone also got some scratches.... all over the screen.. bah.. but again it still works! Things could have been so much worse and we truly are blessed that things happened as they did! So I've decided a few things as of late.. 1. I need to listen to more music.. it makes me happy and I have failed to do so lately. 2. I really like to cook.. having a menu planned out makes it so much easier! 3. I can be really selfish...I think its cause I'm the oldest child... maybe not..It might just be how I am... but I could use some work! 4. President Monson's talk at the womens conference was directed towards me... I really can be a horrible person sometimes and I can easily judge people and hate them... No bueno... It needs to change!!!! 5. I started attending institute this week... bah I love feeling the spirit daily!.. and it makes me miss my days in high school... :( 6. I love the gospel and need to start living it better. According to the instute teacher this week I need to get my life in order! 7. I need to start appreciating my hubby more... He does a lot for me that I don't give him credit for! 8. I think that I have OCD about certain things.. but that might be normal right??? 9. I need to become a student at the U of A... seeing a DR. only costs 20 bucks... you think I'm kidding... I'm not... 10. I'm so excited for conference this weekend!!! Thats all!
