Holly Fair Stuff

A few months ago I convinced my mom to do the Holly Fair with me this year.

We're down to the wire- we only have a few days until the fair. This is what I've been spending every spare second of every day doing.

Come see us November 13-14th at the UBTA building in Roosevelt. Doors open at 10am on November 13th. We would LOVE to see you there!

Halloween Stuff

This year we decided to go back to Duchesne for Halloween. My brother Todd and his wife Dana were having a party and we wanted to see my family. I dressed up like a Queen Bee and Jack dressed up like Charlie Kelley from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. (We have a crude sense of humor. Which makes it okay for us to watch that show. But please
do not watch it and be offended that I suggested it.....)

We had so much fun! Usually we spend our Halloween in our PJ's ignoring the trick or treaters so it was nice to get out and do something.

Changing Stuff

It's officially Fall.

The leaves are red.

There's a cold nip in the air.

And change is everywhere.

It's so refreshing to know that change is constant.

Life decided to throw some big changes at me lately. I was released from my calling as the Sunbeam teacher in our primary and called to serve as the Young Women Secretary. If that's not change I don't know what is. I've only served in the primary before so having a calling like this is a huge adjustment. I spent a good chunk of my time working on young women's stuff or thinking about how I should be working on young women's stuff (usually the latter). I absolutely love it though. The girls in our ward are amazing and I feel so blessed to have them!

I quit my job at Doug Smith Autoplex back in July. Being a stay at home wife was SO great. Seriously. My house was clean. There was food on the table. I was able to accomplish so many errands during the day. And I still managed to have time to kick back and relax. I loved it. Then life took a curve ball and I had to go back to work. After many weeks of searching I was able to score a job at an Elementary school right by my house. It is- hands down- the best job. I absolutely love it. I'm able to work part time and still make good money. I feel like it is a tender mercy from my Heavenly Father. I'm finally able to work at a job that I can enjoy.

Jack's life hasn't taken much change lately. But he WANTS it to change. So that's pretty much the same right? Although he is writing a sweet NBA blog that is so clever and amazing that you all should check out. and feel free to click on the ads. That's how we pay our bills these days.

Change is constant.

Nothing stays the same.

And I am so thankful for that.

Anniversary Stuff

This year Jack and I celebrated our 4th Anniversary. That seems like forever. I'm always in charge of planning our anniversary celebration and this year we chose to stay in Orem. We went to dinner at our VERY favorite steak house Ruby River for dinner. It's so delicious. I look forward to special occasions so we have a reason to splurge. After dinner we went to the Hale Centre Theater and watched Little Shop of Horrors. It was so much fun. What a great way to celebrate.

I'm so very grateful to have Jack. I can't think of another person I'd rather spend the rest of eternity with. He's the one I want to tell my stories to. He's the one I want to hold me when I cry. He's the one I want to see every morning when I wake up and the one I want to tuck me in when I fall asleep. He's my everything and I can't imagine my life without him. Happy Anniversary babe. 4 down forever to go.
