2nd Anniversary June 2013

It is crazy to think that we have already been married 2 YEARS! It seems like yesterday that we we're getting married. So much has happened in the past 2 years it is crazy. First we we're married for 4 months and decided to start trying for a Baby little did we know it would happen faster than we thought. We honestly thought that it would take 6 months to a year. So at our surprise 5 weeks BAM
We bought our first home a Townhouse in Eagle Mountain, Lived there for 10 Months. John worked at the State Prison for 2 year and in November 2012 he was promoted to AP&P, he worked in Salt Lake at a halfway House. He switched to graveyards and I began working a few days after Christmas. We needed the money since we sold our house thinking John would get a promotion in Vernal. When he didn't we had to move regardless because our house sold within a week being on the market.

 We rented a really nice Townhouse in Lehi. We we're very fortunate to get it. It was extremely hard working full time and being away from Dax. He was almost 6 months old. We we're fortunate that John was home with him most of the time and our friends the Astles watched him the rest of the time for about 5 weeks. I felt horrible. I knew that we needed the money. My job was a Receptionist at VW South town. I loved my job. I loved everyone I worked with and I enjoyed what I did. February rolls around and a few days before Valentines John gets a call from the Regional Director of AP&P. He tells him that they are very shorthanded out in Vernal and need another Agent as soon as possible. John and I talk it over and decide to take the promotion. We celebrated the promotion and Valentines by going to Cheesecake Factory, Jen and Brian watched Dax so it was nice to have some quality time together as husband and wife.
 We moved in March to Stacy and Kelbys up in Syracuse. We lived in their basement. It was a lot of fun. Dax loved it there, especially playing with his cousins all the time. John was planning on going into Police Academy in April and finishing up in June. If it was only that easy. The first day of Academy John was finishing the run and he completely blew out his knee. He called me in tears and we then preceded to the DRS. The Dr recommended that we go see a Orthopedic DR. Thankfully it was nothing serious and he had to do PT for 5 weeks. It is slowly getting stronger and tolerable. So in that fiasco we had to move to Vernal right away since John wasn't able to finish the Academy. We are now in Vernal and it has been 2 Months, We live in an apartment it isn't ideal but it'll work for now. John loves his career.

The actual day of our anniversary John had to work but I decided I would surprise him with dinner. I made lemon chicken rice and asparagus. I also had a glass jar filled with recces PB cups and on the bottom of each on I listed a quality I liked about him. I loved surprising him it was fun to see the smile on his face. We we're
able to go out for our 2 year Anniversary. We we're in Lehi and John was driving around and told me that he was taking me somewhere I had been before. We went to Rodizio Grill. It was fabulous. It was elegant intimate and the food was amazing! They had a salad and fruit bar. We each ordered yummy lemonade drinks and the meats we're coming every few minutes. I tried fried banana it was delicious. We had a chocolate cake and ice cream for desert, It was good but a little too rich for our liking. Who knows where we will be next year when we celebrate our 3 year anniversary but for now we are enjoying our sweet baby boy Daxton who is 11 months old. Time goes by too fast


Fathers Day 2013

Happy Fathers Day! Today was a good day, We went to church and it was amazing. After we came home relaxed a bit and I gave John his Fathers day Card and Candy, I talked with my Dad that was nice. I asked John what he wanted for his Fathers Day dinner and he replies Waffles. I said seriously? Okay well an hour later we we're invited to a BBQ with his work friends. It was a lot of fun. I have loved watching John and Dax together. They are 2 peas in a pod. Also each others mini's me's. I look forward to watching them together in the years to come.


Johns 30th Birthday

John turned 30 this year! He went to work for the day and I hung out with Dax. We played and I packed for us since we we're going to Salt Lake for the weekend. John came home and we left for Salt Lake. Throughout the day I told him Happy Birthday several times. We met his parents for dinner at Roadhouse. We had steak it was delicious. Of course the rolls we're to die for. We also totally embarrassed which was very entertaining, At Texas Roadhouse if it is your birthday you get to ride the bull and they sing Happy Birthday. John was a good sport and I have it recorded! The day before his birthday we celebrated here at home. I got Papa Murphy's Pizza, and surprised him with a Ice cream cake which he gets every year. It was a fun birthday for John. One of these days I'll plan a surprise Birthday for him. Now that would be priceless.


My 28th Birthday

   My 28th Birthday wasn't what I was use to and that was totally fine with me, I am married now and a Mom and that in itself is the greatest gift of all. In years past I have gone to California, went to Cheesecake Factory, the Beach, gotten my hair done. got a manicure and a pedicure, gone to the movies etc. This year I hung out with Dax tried getting a pedicure but none of the places I went to we're able to. Came home relaxed got ready and John and I went to dinner at a nice place here in Vernal called the Quarry. It was fun and relaxing my friend watched Dax. I had Steak and a salad and some vegies. Deseret was raspberry cheesecake. We came home and John made me a Confetti cake it was delicious. My siblings also called me and I talked to them it was fun. I was able to get my pedicure that Saturday and it was so relaxing!


Valentines Day 2013


Happy Valentines Day. It was like any normal day We both worked and that night I came home from work played with Dax, did some laundry and did a little photo shoot with Dax it was fun. We also got a Black Yukon the day after Valentines so I considered that to be a really good present. We went to Cheesecake Factory a few days before so all in all it was a good Valentines. Also John has only gotten me flowers ONCE and this is our 3rd Valentines together. So I know when I do get flowers it's Special. We actually celebrated at Cheesecake Factory My Favorite. Nothing to big and over the top, I am happy I have a husband I love and adore so much. Valentines isn't that big of a Holiday for me but it still fun to do sweet things for each other
