Me & My Best Friend!

I am so overwhelmed with so many different emotions, but my main emotion is just pure happiness. I'm SO excited to say that I get to spend the rest of my life with my best friend!
On the 4th of July, Bryson INSISTED that we go to the Cherry Days parade out in North Ogden. I had my suspicions, but agreed to go nonetheless. As the parade progressed, one of the floats stopped right in front of us. I almost missed the whole thing! Bryson had the MC announce what was going on, while the people on the big American Flag float turned around signs, asking me to marry him! Literally hundreds of people were cheering, clapping and telling us congrats! Talk about a thoughtful boy!


 
I very rarely get sappy when it comes to Bryson, so just bear with me for a second!
For a long time, I've been unsure as to what I wanted to do with my life. I couldn't decide if I wanted to go to school, where I wanted to live, when I wanted to get married and have kids, etc. But one thing I've always been sure of, since almost the very first time we hung out, was the I would be the luckiest girl EVER to end up with him. The longer we're together, the more I feel like we were literally made for each other. I've never been happier as I am on our best days. He's literally my best friend, and I so fortunate and happy that our paths crossed. :)
 

Happy 4th of July, 2014!!! :)
 

Home Sweet Home!

Man oh man, am I excited to show off my new apartment! I LOVE the feeling of paying my own bills, and taking care of myself. Being a big girl sure is a liberating feeling!
 
 
 
It definitely isn't my dream home by any means, but I LOVE the old Victorian building that I'm in! Definitely no regrets as far as moving out goes!

Bane Church(Abbott?)

I'm finally back up and blogging again! I can't believe it's been almost 9 months since the last time I updated. I apologize to my avid imaginary followers ;)
When I pulled my blog up today, and realized I had never even introduced Bane, I was so shocked! Seeing as how he is basically like my little fur child. Haha. But then I realized he was born 8 days after my most recent post.
So, without further adieu... I give you BANE! Born October 28th, 2013.

October has always been the best month!

I feel like I've been somewhat slacking on my blog posts, but then again I haven't had a whole lot going on lately.... so yeah. Haha
We took a trip to Jackson Hole to watch Hayden play in a soccer tournament during the tail end of September. We ended up staying in a house jam packed with 12 year old girls. Would I do it again? Probably not. It'll make for some fun memories though I guess! 
This cutie pie and me just celebrated our one year anniversary on the 15th. I honestly can't believe how fast a year has flown by, and every day I thank God for bringing Bryson into my life. He's shown and taught me how to be a better person and I couldn't ask for anyone more perfect. ♥ I hope and pray that we'll see another year together, and many more after that! He's honestly all I could ever ask for in someone.

On another note!
 I've gone from having hair this length...
To my new hair. :) I think this is honestly the first time in my life, that I've felt like I have "pretty" hair. After I permed my hair a couple months ago, my hair died and started falling out and had the worst breakage I've EVER had. (I have super fragile hair and I curse my parents every day for the terrible hair genes I got). Haha. But needless to say, my hair was one fried, broken, choppy mess. There were times when I honestly wanted to cry over the crappy decision I made to perm it. I mean, what girl enjoys not having ugly hair? 
But I'm glad that I finally got it fixed, and totally feel like a new woman :)

and last but not least...
We'll be taking it back to the wild wild west for Halloween this year! And not only will I be an Indian, but Hayden and Tay will be joining me. And of course, Slade will be a cowboy with Bryson. Stay tuned for pictures :)

Until then, Happy Halloween!

Just some more pictures!

Working full-time means that I've FINALLY got some money.. what have I been doing with it, you ask?
Well...
I bought my first car all on my own! A 1998 Nissan Maxima :) It's not perfect, or brand new by any means. But it runs, has AC, a radio and goes forward and backward. All that I need!


I've also spoiled myself a little bit! What's the fun in working if you don't get to spend any on yourself? Haha. But now I'm back down to planet earth and the spoiling is now done :( It was fun while it lasted!
I don't think I've mentioned this, but Bryson landed a job with Ogden City! I took this right before he went in for his first interview... hired on the spot :) *sniff sniff* haha
I also got him to go try the new In-N-Out that opened up in Riverdale a couple weeks ago! He's sooo antisocial (no wonder him and my dad get along so well), so we didn't stay long.. it was PACKED. But, amazing food! My favorite fast food place :)
A couple weekend's ago, we got to go up to Bear Lake and stay in Bryson's family cabin with his aunt and uncle. Talk about an amazing view.. and a terrible sunburn! The beach kicked my butt, but it was awesome :) Next weekend we'll be heading up to Jackson Hole with my family for one of Hayden's soccer tournaments.. I'm stoked!
Speaking of soccer...
We've spent LOTS of time driving, watching and cheering my sisters on with their soccer. I feel like a crazy soccer mom already! Haha. And I'm really thankful that I've got someone so family oriented and willing to go watch even though he hates soccer ;) 
And last but not least..
Bryson surprised me with my favorite flowers on Sunday. It was our "11 month anniversary" haha. 

I'm really glad that I can say I've grown up A LOT in the last year or so. I've come to appreciate the little things SO much more than I used to. My wants and goals have become so much more realistic, and I feel like I'm not so immature anymore. I'm just thankful to have Bryson and I'm thankful that he likes me enough to keep me around. Haha. And honestly, that's all I could ever want. Anything else is just an added bonus!

Until next time :)
