Thanksgiving 2010

Yesterday we celebrated Thanksgiving and to start this post off i just want to say what I am Thankful for.

  • I am Thankful for my amazing Husband Tavis, Who tries so hard to take care of me, he loves me so unconditionally (as far as i know) and I could not be here without him. He is so amazing and keeps me strong and keeps me going.
  • I am Thankful for my Mom, Who is always there for me, has always been there for and molded me into the mom I hope to be.
  • My family, And I mean all of my family. My biological, my extended, and my church family. I am blessed to be surrounded by such wonderful, uplifting, and amazing people in my life.
  • I am thankful for the many struggles and trials in my life that have helped make me into the women I am today.
  • I am thankful to be blessed with the ability to grow and carry a healthy child in me for 9 months and cannot wait to meet my beautiful little girl in a few weeks.

I have so much to be thankful for, and am continually surprised by the many blessings God has given me and gives me and those around me. 

So my turkey day was pretty good. Started off with a wake up call at 5 am, by miss peyton who decided 5 was a good time to start doing back flips and such. Got up and watched the Macy's day Parade and I have to say i like watching it on Channel 5 than I do on Channel 2. Got ready and me and Tav went to dinner at Golden Corral. O yeah no cooking or dishes for us haha. It was pretty awesome and such good food. We were really hoping Tav's mom would join us but she changed her mind so it ended up just being the two of us. After words we went back to Tav's dads and I slept while Tav played video games. When i woke up i unfortunately had a horrible case of morning sickness and was so incredibly nauseous the entire rest of the day. So me and Tav just hung out in our room. He taught me how to play worms on XBOX arcade. I loved it. So yeah that would be my Thanksgiving over all it was just nice to be able to spend it with the one person i wanted to most. 
I love you Tavis. 



Day 15: Something you don't leave the house without

That would be my iPod I may not actually use it while i'm out but I never leave without 
cause who knows I may just need it.


Day 9-14: Sorry i'm running really late...

Day 9: A photo of the last thing you purchased
So i haven't really purchased anything except Groceries and i'm not going to share a pic of that with everyone hahaha.

Day 10: A photo of your favorite place to eat
We don't eat out often but this is one place we enjoy going alot...

Day 11: What is in your makeup bag
I don't have a makeup bag haha I rarely wear makeup so I guess I have a thing of eyeliner and a thing of lipgloss. Yep that is about all I carry on me.

Day 12: A photo of the town you live in.
Currently that would be Provo, Ut.

Day13: Your favorite musician
Currently my Fav band is The Bravery.
They just have awesome music that make me feel good. They also bring good memories.
Our First date was to a Bravery concert.

Day 14: A show you are currently addicted to.
This is the only of my fall shows that isn't frustrating the hell out off me so...


Day 8: Song to match my mood.

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

I have been thinking a lot about my baby girl who will be here so soon and i can not wait. So these songs are ones that remind me of being a parent and how i feel.


Day 7: Your Dream Wedding

Now not that my first wedding wasn't a dream, 
But unfortunately we did not get to exchange vows. 
So right now I am in the process of planning a vow exchange 
wedding for me and Tavis. 
We have two ideas this is our first which would be an intimate ceremony 
with family and close friends in a hidden mountain meadow.
Our second idea would be even more intimate.
It would be Tavis, Myself and our Daughter,
alone on a Hawaiian Beach Wedding. 
Maybe family too. 
But yeah in 4 years I will get my dream wedding. 


Day 6: A photo of an animal you would like has a pet

I really Really REALLY want a Hedgehog.
Tavis keeps promising me we will get one one day.
They are so cute and little.


Day 5: A photo of you 2 years ago

This is the closest to two years ago. This was taken Christmas 2008.
That is our puppy Link, which I bought Tavis that year for christmas.
Unfortunately we had to sell him the following summer. 
I can't wait to get Tav another one.


Day 4: You favorite photo of your best friend.

This is my Best Friend, Tavis.
He is always there for me and i love him so much.

Day 3: A photo of the perfect first date

I think Bowling is an awesome First date idea
Very comfortable and fun setting where you can get to know each other.


Day 2: Photo of something you ate today

Well she is definitely Tavis's daughter.
I have always ALWAYS hated Salt & Vinegar Chips.
Well today as I'm sitting watching Tav play video games he opens up a bag.
I got this huge whiff of the Vinegar and almost immediately had to have some.
Yeah. Not my thing but apparently my daughter wants them. 
Same thing with Banana Peppers.
I had never had them til I got pregnant,
and then working at subway i had them on pretty much all of my sandwiches
These are Tavis's things not mine. He likes salty, bitter, bleh!
So yeah. 


Day 1: A photo of you and how your day was

This is us today. 

Today was awesome I loved it. Started off pretty slow but i appreciated when I woke up from my nap and Tavis was making lunch for us. It was very cute and I loved it. Then a few hours later i got an amazing massage from my friend Leola, Oh my gosh it felt so good. I love her so much for doing it, and was so happy Peyton cooperated and slept through the massage too, haha. Then me and Tav went and checked this apartment close by and I fell in love with it. We are going to turn in an application tomorrow. And to top of our great day, we went on a great double date with Brandon and Ceason Elder. We went to Training Table for dinner and just sat there for like an hour and half after we were done just chatting, then we went to Fat Cats for 50/50 bowling and played 3 rounds. Brandon won all three. The first game was pretty close between Tavis and Brandon, but then he totally just kicked our butts the last two. During the second game Me and Ceason kept getting the exact same thing for the first 4 frames it was funny. I was bowling straight Granny's cause i just don't know how to bowl really and I did better with those than the way you are supposed to bowl haha. Anyway I still lost every game. I think my highest score was 67? haha yeah I suck. But yeah it was a great night and a great day.
