AFV contender?

Ok, so this video is one from a few months ago, but I find it halarious and HAD to share! At first it seems a little cruel, but it's just pretty funny. Enjoy!

I've got Letters!

Drum roll please!.....
It's official!  I am now....


Sunday I came home from Stake Conference and made my family a meal.  I even made part of the meal for our monday night dinner.  Then Sawyer and I spent the day together.  Boy did that feel nice!

Two years ago I got accepted into a very competitive program for Radiology Tech school.  I remember my excitement feeling so "lucky" to be 1 of 18 choosen from a group of over 100 applicants.  Little did I know what I was getting myself into!  Here I am now, finally finished!  This has been one of the hardest things I've done in my life.  It has taken me away from my family, friends, and any kind of normal life that I thought I might have once had.  I look forward to what the future holds and am proud of myself for making it this far. 
After all the lessons I learned from the millions of tests I've taken and crazy things I have seen at the hospital, the thing I have learned the most is to keep things priority in my life.  I have to admit, I haven't always done great at this throughout school.  I have been very fortunate to land my "dream job" right out of school.  My new job allows me to be home during the day and with Sawyer.  I can't tell you how excited I am to finally get to be a mom.  I have been incredibly jealous of all you stay at home moms and the time you get to spend with your little ones. 
I am so grateful for my wonderful, supportive husband who helped me get through these two crazy years.  He has been incredibly neglected as well, and hopefully him and I can finally go on a date (without Sawyer even) and spend some quality time together.  I know it always seems greener on the other side, and I'm sure my new schedule will have it's own challenges, but today is a good day.

Sawyer's 1st Birthday

For Sawyer's Birthday we decided to invite all the local relatives over for a party.  We ended up having around 20 people there!  How lucky are we to have so many relatives close by to share our lives with?!  Anyway, I kept putting off this post because there are a MILLION pictures, but I decided to just post some of our favorites.  Enjoy!

Just woke up from his nap, wondering why all these people are here?
Yay!  Grandpa came!

We sure love our little man.  What a fun year we have had learning all about him and welcoming him into our lives.  We wouldn't trade it for the world!  Happy Birthday Sawyer!  We love you!
