We spent the weekend making some pretty rad crafts, one of which is a mirror that we turned from dirty white to teal. Well, needless to say, we don't have anywhere to put the mirror on the walls, so it's just kind of leaning up against a wall on the floor.

Jack doesn't quite understand the concept of mirrors yet.

He'll walk past the mirror, catch a glimpse of himself and then he'll just stand and stare. He then sees our reflection in the mirror, so when we call him, he turns around to see where the sound is coming from and he sees us and you can just tell that he is so confused as to how we were over there and now we're over here. It's hilarious.

I'm officially THRIFTY!

So me and Trent decided we were gonna experiment. I follow this blog every day and just love it so I wanted to try. So Trent go this awesome piece from the DI and he took off the top tier and then we painted it this awesome blue color after priming it and then we wrote THE KEY in Italian at the top and Mail of the house in the bottom. I love it! adds some color and spice to our house. I am so excited to do more!

More to come! just wait!

Weekend fun!

This weekend was really fun and relaxed for hubby and me!

Friday night we stayed home all night and did nothing. We just watched a movie and got pizza and just spent some much needed time together.

Then Saturday came! Our friend Alice called me a few weeks ago and asked if she could take pictures of me and Trent, of course I couldn't say no, so we went. We took about an hour and a half worth of pictures and it was a lot of fun. a reason to kiss and cuddle and be right next to each other. Here are a few of the pictures she took that I loved.

After that we went and grabbed lunch real fast and went out to Meliss's and Jim's to watch Annie. it was so fun. she is walking and is so adorable. I can't believe how big she is getting. She is also getting really good at dirty looks. I love it! Jack absolutely adores her. Attacks her all the time and just wants to lick her face...oh man. But it was fun to see them play. Trent and I had an intense game of Tetris which was luckily ended by Meliss and Jim coming home! :)

After that we went home and rested up and then we were off to a wedding for our good friends Don and Jen Willie. It was beautiful. It was at The Point where we got married so that was bitter sweet cause it made me miss my wedding so much. But they did a fabulous job. I liked her cake way more then mine! but mine did taste pretty good! :) After the wedding me and Trent went to the movie Green Zone which then led to MILLIONS of questions from me to Trent and poor guy you could tell was just done and did not want to answer anymore questions! haha but it made for good entertainment! :)

Sunday we woke up went to church and then went out to Trent's parents and Jack just had a bawl. he loves running around with the other puppies and just being a spaz. go figure. then we went home to a meeting then off to the park with some couples from our ward and played some good old football! :) I was trash talking the entire time which I totally found appropriate! haha I am sure others have another opinion. we had fun though then went home and got quickly to bed we were both so exhausted. but before we went to bed we decided just to check up on how much it is to rent a uhaul for their drive to Memphis. for 7 days and for enough space for our apartment it was $1400!!!! NO JOKE! we just about died. man quite the trip, but hopefully we will find a better deal.

When I look back to two years ago or 3 or 5, for that matter, I always wonder where I would have ended up had I not done everything I know I should have. I am so happy that this is where we are. Trent has made my life so great. The past two nights we have been just laughing and remembering why we fell in love. Don't take life to seriously. Enjoy the silly parts of life like when your wife won't go to sleep cause she is giggling like crazy or how you and your spouse fight, but your husband just ends up laughing because he says I am swinging at him like a cat.

Seriously though, I have now realized my best advice is don't take everything to seriously. Enjoy the little things in life. Do what makes you two happy and nothing else. We got Jack because WE wanted too. We had a lot of people tell us not to, but we love him and we are SO glad we did. He has been a blessing to us and just a sweet boy. Gives us laughs all the time and every time I mention moving his tail wags. I know I know, he probably has no idea what I am saying but still. I love my boys and I love my life. Can't wait to go to Memphis for this big experience.

Anyone have any advice on Memphis??? I'd appreciate it!

This last Thursday was my Accadian year end show. It was hard. I will miss those girls so much, but I am so proud of them and they were so awesome. I will miss coaching but ready for something else. I am officially done now and no more waking up early! That is exciting to me! haha.
Spring break is this week and I plan on staying up late and hanging out with my hubby! So excited.

Hope all is well with everyone.

Jack is so rad. Tonight, I came home and opened up the door to the bathroom where he hangs out while we're gone (to avoid everything in our apartment being destroyed by his sharp little teeth). He had knocked over his water bowl in excitement and I didn't notice. So, not one to not get what he wants or needs, he ran in and got his bowl and dropped it on my foot. "Hey, hey, hey, um, did you forget about me? Hi, hi, I'm still here."

Well, these past few months of waiting, interviewing, and trying to be perfect for them has been difficult to say the least!
but it all paid off. we found out today that we were accepted to TEACH FOR AMERICA 2010-2011 Corps members and will be moving to Memphis Tennessee!

We couldn't be happier and just are so excited for this wonderful adventure! Trent will be moving we think on May 30 and driving out and putting some of our items in storage and bringing his truck there to wait! and then I'll stay and work until about June 15th ish and then take a few days off, play with my babies Annies, and spend time with my wonderful family. This has kinda been hard because we have never been separated and now the baby of the fam is leaving. I will probably move out there when he comes back to Utah on July 15th and we'll move to Memphis find our place and settle in. What an adventure. AH!

But my family is sooo supportive and just so excited so I really appreciate it. We will skype every sunday and mom you can still send me presents anytime! But I really think it will be the best thing for our marriage and for us. We are itching for an experience and to make it even better we have job security for 2 years! YEAH!

Trent I am so proud of you. I think you are amazing and fabulous. All your hard work and dedication challenges me everyday to be more and more like you. I am so proud to be your wife. You are amazing. Our little family, JACK YOU ME will have SO much fun there and so many adventures. Love you baby.

Congrats! :)
