One year older...

Thank you EVERYONE for all the Birthday messages, phone calls, cards, gifts and love! I had such a wonderful day! Jarom spoiled me wrotten....and so did everyone else!
My birthday has always been over spring break and so growing up, I felt like my birthday lasted all week! We usually went on vacation for spring break so I liked to think that it was for my birthday! This year was so exception (except we didn't go on vacation) My birthday has lasted all week! Last weekend we celebrated my birthday at Ben's house Playing games, watching movies, eating a YUMMY dinner (thanks Court and John! And Court made my favorite B-day cake!) and went shopping!!

Then all week, Jarom has been giving me the birthday treatment with foot rubs and back rubs and little love notes. I'm loving it! Yesterday he took me to dinner at Tucanos (YUMMMMM) and he got me nice presents and we pretty much did anything that I wanted to do. Which wasn't much, I was just enjoying being with him all evening (he usually works in the evenings but he took it off for my B-day). Joanna came over and surprised me with yummy cupcakes and Jenni and Michael came over and we made Blizzards with our Magic Bullet. It was such a wonderful day! I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so many people who love us! I enjoyed all the phone calls and messages and everything!

I don't feel older OR wiser, but maybe that will come later. So over all, being 23 has been great!

P.s. Sorry for the Not-so-hot pictures! I have been HORRIBLE at taking pictures lately! I just don't seem to remember. So these are pretty much the best we have from the birthday celebrations. Plus, I think our camera is pretty much dead! You can barely take one picture before it turns off. And we JUST replaced the batteries! Bummer!

I taught Relief Society on Sunday on "The Creation" and while I was preparing for it, I found this video! It's awesome! I really loved it! Very inspiring.
Just thought you might enjoy it! :)

We are Blessed

We feel so blessed and Happy lately!! These are just a FEW of the reasons:

One of the greatest blessings is being so close to the temple! We live about 5 minutes away and we can go whenever we want! Growing up, going to the temple was always a full day adventure because it was 2 hours away. It is so nice to be so close and we have loved going so often!

Jarom's new job!! That's HUGE! He FINALLY got that Job at Wilson Audio (with my brother). Full time, more money, AND benefits! WHOO!! He loves it and I love seeing him more happy! Thanks, Ben for your help in getting this job!

Being so close to my family! I couldn't think of a better way to spend my time than with family!! It seriously makes me SO happy! Jarom and Ben are quite the couple.
They are becoming pretty good friends and they are so funny together! I've been able to spend more time with the kids and Ben and Kristen and Court and John!
It's just so fun!! Almost every weekend is like a Holiday for us because we all get together and eat lots of yummy food and play games and spend lots of time together! And spending more time with Joanna! We LOVE having her here! I love talking to her about college life and all the fun things she's doing and meeting her "friends" ;)
Being neighbors with Jenni and Michael! Being able to see them whenever we want! It's great! We love them!

Our ward is AWESOME! We've made some really good friends here! I love my calling! I might complain about it a lot, being a Relief Society teacher isn't as easy OR fun as being in the Nursery but I have learned SO much and it has almost forced me to study more. So, that's definitely been a blessing! I have learned so much! And it's so true that you love the people you serve. I love my relief society!

My Husband! What a blessing he has been in my life! He is so handsome, funny, fun, kind, loving, patient...and all the good stuff! :) I'm crazy about him! He is my dream come true!

Well, there ya have it! We are so blessed! We are having so much fun together and looking forward to whatever else might come our way!

Happy Birthday Nenni!

Yes, I meant to put an "N" instead of a "J". (When I was little, I called Jenni "Nenni")
It's her Birthday today!! let me just tell you a little bit about my Jenni!

We were born 2 weeks apart (Thanks Mom and Carol!) and we do everything together! We are together so much that people actually think we look alike? What?! Yup, they do! Sometimes it's even like we have the same brain! I can almost always tell what she is thinking. I know almost everything about her! We have shared pretty much everything together! Ups and Downs, exciting and Sad, we've been through it all! Growing up we always hoped for/joked about (our mom's weren't joking, they really wanted it) having a joint wedding! We got married 4 months apart instead. Close enough!
We used to joke (before we were married) that we were like each other's boyfriends because when we were apart we missed each other so much! Before I made the move to Rexburg, Jenni was there without me! We were apart almost ALL YEAR!! That's the longest we had been apart our whole lives. When I moved to Rexburg we realized how CRAZY that was! We missed each other if we were apart for just a couple days. Or even one day sometimes!

My life definitely wouldn't be the same without her. (Now it really sounds like I'm talking about my boyfriend, or-now Husband :) Don't worry Jarom, I still love you!! hee hee) She is one of the greatest blessings in my life! I don't know if you can ever know how much I love her or understand the special relationship we have!

We grew up living 15 steps away (yes, we counted. We're THAT cool) So it's only appropriate that we now live in the same apartment complex ( I don't know how many steps away) with our husbands! Luckily, they are friends now, too!!

There's so, SO much more but I'll spare you all the stories. This post already sounds like a "lover" post. Ha ha
I Love you!

"I've never had someone that knows me like you do, the way you dooooo." "cuz we belong together now, life would suck without you!" "Happy Birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear jennnnniiii. Happy birthday to you!" "I gotta feelin. That tonight's gonna be a good night. tonight's the night, lets live it up" "so i put my hands up, they playin my song...noddin my head like yeah, movin my hips like yeah....its a party in the woodmansee apartment." (or, in the USA if your'e Miley Cyrus)

Love this

I'm loving this song right now! Its so happy and fun and just makes you want to get up and dance. Or something. It's one of those "favorite" songs that I could listen to over and over and OVER and never get sick of it. I realize that I have a lot of those. :) It's pretty cute! Anyway, Enjoy!
P.s. Sorry the video is cut off. I don't know how to fix it!
