A few thoughts...

So, I just had a couple of things on my mind and thought I would share...

First, I LOVE my job. Everyday I look forward to going to work and that's a really good thing. As funny as it may sound I feel excepted and extremely loved by all the children. It always makes my day when I have girls running up to me, giving me hugs, telling me nice things...I absolutely LOVE it!

Second, School is stressful. I didn't do so hot on my first test of the semester yesterday...but hey! what can you do?! Life goes on :)

Third, I am so proud of my husband. He is doing so well at his job and really enjoying the new position he is in. I am also so proud of his determination to get done with school. He is a hard worker and sometimes I don't know how he does everything he does, Pretty much he is amazing! He also just got called as Young Men's First counselor

Fourth, I am so grateful for doctors. We met with Dr. Spencer on Monday and John and I feel like we got a lot of answers to our many questions...

Fifth, even thought life seems unfair sometimes...there are others who have much worst trials in their life. Knowing this makes me appreciate all I have been given.

Sixth, I know I have said it a million times, but I am so excited for Fall Time. This weekend we are going to Swiss Days...I want to look for a beautiful Fall Wreath to go on my door.

Seventh, I wonder when I get pregnant again if I'll be as sick as the first time...everyone says every pregnancy is different, I still think I'll be extremely sick with all my pregnancies :)

Eighth, General Conference is in a month! I LOVE General Conference.

Ninth, our cruise vacation is so soon... I hope the hurricanes stay away. I am excited for a little break!!

Tenth, I have so much homework, but I just need a break for one night :)

Back to the Doctors....

John always seems to give me a hard time about being so open with anything and everything about myself, but that's just me :) This is my blog and it's where I write about our life, our experiences, trials, and happy moments...I don't think a lot of people read my blog anyways. But what I came to write about today...after four LONG months of me being inpatient, shedding a lot of tears, and feeling completely down and out of it...I called Dr. Spencer (my OB) to get an appointment to figure things out with ya know...the getting pregnant thing. John and I get to meet with him in just a couple of days and man, am I excited!

These last couple of months have been the toughest part of my life that's for sure. Unfortunately I am not one of those people that can just get pregnant by thinking about it. It breaks my heart that I have to involve doctors in something that other couples get handed to them. I am hoping by visiting Dr. Spencer this next week, that we will get some options as to what is our next step. Every day I dream about being a mom and I try to have faith every day that we will get that chance soon. I get nervous about having another loss, but I can't really think about that right now. It's been really hard to stay positive and every time I find out someone new is pregnant, I wonder when it will be our turn.

I am grateful for being able to learn a lot of life lessons and a lot about myself through this process. It has made me a stronger person and appreciate a lot of things I have been given.

Wish us luck next week!!

Back to School 2011

So I kind of have two Back to School's his year...

First off, Fall Semester began today for John and I...I guess we better hold on tight and enjoy the ride. John being the amazing person he is, is taking 18 credit hours AGAIN! And myself...15 :) We are going to be busy busy busy, but we just want to get done with school.

Second, I love my new job! Like I said before, I am working at a Charter school now. The last two weeks I have been training, learning the ins and outs, and preparing myself for the first day of school. Last night I couldn't sleep...I was so nervous for the first day, it was like being a kid again. And well...the first day was AWESOME and I survived! I made a lot of fun, cute little friends who call me " Mrs. H" and I absolutely love it! Even though I won't be able to memorize all 375 of their names...they are so much fun and most definitely keep my entertained.

Looks like Back to School is starting off on a good foot.

Summer 2011 Wrap-up...

Well, it's about that time to wrap up the summer. We did a lot of fun things these past couple of months including a vacation to Las Vegas and St. George, summer concerts at Sandy Amphitheater, Mama Mia at Capitol Theater, birthdays, BBQ's, Fireworks, Camping, Cowabunga Bay, temple visits and much much more. We most certainly won't forget our not so fun event this summer (the pit bull attack) But all-in-all it was a great summer!

Here is a recap of the events I haven't blogged about yet...

Charlie did so good at his last vet appointment. He didn't even cry when they took his staples and stitches out.

Nashville Tribute Concert at Sandy Amphitheater....We got hit by a summer storm! Can you tell?! Even though the rain was coming down like we just walked into a shower, it was so much fun! FAVORITE MOMENT that's for sure. I loved looking over at John and laughing so hard because we were so wet.

Kobe playing in his all-star Baseball game...this was a HOT day and I sure was glad I wasn't one playing out on the field!!

Horton Family...Minus Mason. He also had a game this day for High school. WHAT?! My nephew just went into 9th grade! I can't believe it!!

Our Little all-Star

(More Pictures to come...I am still trying to upload them)

New things...

So, I'm not really feeling like writing much lately...So this will be a quick one! My last day at RPM was Friday and I start my new fun job tomorrow! I will be working at a Charter school and I am so dang excited!!! There are a lot of perks to my new job...

I get to work with children (which is what I am majoring in and love to do)

The hours are awesome!!

Two weeks off for Christmas...and I don't work in the summers :)
(Perfect mom job, when kids decide to come along. )

Literally working in a school has always been like a dream job. It is just really difficult to get into one because people usually don't quit or a bazillion people apply because they are such fun jobs! So I am most definitely feeling very blessed to get my foot in the door.

I know I will enjoy it a lot! I am getting anxious and excited to start tomorrow. I hope the kids like me and that I won't be called Mrs. Meany...if this happens, I might come home crying ha ha. I always hate being the new person, but feel like I will fit in just great :)

I also got new hair for the's short (shorter then usual) and has a lot of brown in it. Did I mention and I have VERY thick bangs as well?! Yeah...It definitely different, but I figured since I was starting a new job, I needed new hair too!!

John also started his new position at work last week and is adjusting nicely...We have a lot of changes going on right now, but we are loving every minute of it because it's what keeps life interesting. John also finished up his summer semester yesterday and passed all of his 18 credits with flying colors (only he can handle doing 18 credits in the summer) I am so proud of him and I love him so much!!

Summer is dwindling will start again soon...and my favorite time of the year is just around the corner....FALL!!!

Happy Sunday
