Most of you have probably already seen this but for those of you who haven't this is one of the best lectures I have ever seen and if you ever need a pick me up just watch even part of it. Here is a clip about the actual lecture which is over an hour long but worth your time.
Here is the whole thing for those who have the time.

You can call me.. Manager Alli

Summer has begun, and that means I'm going to get a new job for the summer. I'm going to be the new pool manager for the Joseph City Pool. It's A LOT smaller than the Buckeye pool, and A LOT different, but I think it's going to be really fun! I'm a little nervous because I've never been in like completely charge of anything before, but I'm up for the challenge. Wish me luck!

Baby Info.

According to online calculators, I am 6 weeks and 4 days along, and I'll be due January 15 if that's all true. My first prenatal appointment is either this Wednesday or this Thursday (i forgot which one so I'll have to call the doctor :) ). I'm only 6 weeks and my pants are already getting tight on my waist! Not fair! I have to do that whole suck-in-to-button-up-my-pants-thing. I haven't gained any weight, but my pants are definitely tighter. I'm starting to feel sickness, yuck. But I'm trying a mental approach to it, maybe if I think hard enough "I'm not going to get sick" it'll work, probably not- but wish me luck! ha ha. I'll let everyone know after my appointment if the online calculators were right or not :)

Senior Trip

We left Joseph City at 9:30 pm on Sunday night, and after a LONG and somewhat sleepless night, we arrived at Anaheim, CA at 6:30 am Monday morning. We had our first day (which was also our anniversary!) at Disneyland and California Adventure. We met Stormy, Becky, and Cheyenne there, so that was really fun to be able to hang out with them too. We didn't do any of the roller coasters, because I'm a little bit paranoid of having another miscarriage, but the rides we did do were really fun! My favorite would have to be the Buzz Lightyear ride, where you shoot the bad guys with your lazers, Kyle did really well, but he didn't realized how skilled of a Space Commander I am :) We ate dinner that the Blue Bayou (the one you see when you go on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Disneyland , it was soo good! I had the steak and it seriously melted in my mouth! It was sooo good!
The next day was spent at Knotts Berry Farm... it was fun for the most part. I made Kyle go on the rides even though I didn't... I LOVE roller coasters so it kind of sucked for me, but it was fun for the kids and Kyle. That night we went to the Medieval Times Dinner Show... it was alright, I probably wouldn't pay money to go to... but it was fun for getting in free :) They had REALLY bad actors... REALLY bad... but it was fun to see all the stunts and stuff.
Wednesday we went to Universal Studios Hollywood. By Wednesday I was soo exhausted! I have been really tired lately anyway, and staying up late and being at Amusement parks all day just really wore me out. I had a lot of fun seeing all the different movie sets and stuff, but I think I was too tired to show that I was having fun :) I was a volunteer in the special effects thing they did. They put me on the green screen and stuff, that was really fun. Wednesday night we left at about 7:00 pm and got back to Joseph City at around 4 am... I got to sleep in till 10, but Kyle had to be at work at 8 that morning, poor guy!
I probably would have been able to have more details... but I was exhausted the entire time :(

Yay for a Baby!

OK so I just can't hold it in any longer!! Kyle and I are going to have a baby!! YAY for us! Because of my miscarriage last time I was going to wait a little longer, but I just feel so good about it this time! Last time I was 12 weeks and I hadn't hardly told anyone because we both just had a weird feeling about it, not scared... but just a weird feeling. BUT this time we both feel really good... anyway! We're really excited! Yay!

One Year Anniversary

Since our one year anniversary is tomorrow I though I would share with you all a little slide show I put together of Alli and I :) I am so Lucky! She L-O-V-E Loves me:)

I love you Kyle!

Our first year anniversary is on May 19- this Monday, but we will be at Disneyland so I figured I should write a little something before we left, so when we came back I could just fill you in on the trip!
I can't believe how much we have been through and how much we have grown together in the last year. As you've already seen in our blog, we have had so much going on and we have enjoyed almost every minute of it.
I am so glad that I chose to marry Kyle and he chose to marry me. I probably couldn't have picked a better match for me. He has never raised his voice at me, and is always the first to admit that he did something wrong, even if he knows he didn't really do it :) He always puts me first no matter what and I'm so great full for him. He works so hard at his job and tries so hard to make sure that I have everything that I want and need. Everyone always says that your first year is the hardest, and I can't imagine that this is the hardest it will get for us. Kyle is amazing and I'm so lucky to have him as my husband.

The Host... not my favorite

I just got done reading The Host... actually, I finished last Sunday... and I'm not going to lie I was a little disappointed. It is definitely totally different from the Twilight series. With the Twilight series I was hooked from book one- the entire way through. The Host- I think I was hooked at first because I was so excited to be reading one of Stephanie Meyers books... BUT... i wasn't really interested in the story. It's definitely a sci-fi type of book, and I guess I'm just not really interested in that stuff. Maybe if I just loved to read, I would have enjoyed it better... but I'm a "it has to be really good" person.... At the end when I found out what had happened, I seriously didn't read the last few pages because I just wasn't interested anymore. The whole reason I got that far was so I could say I finished. The book won't go on my favorites list. There was a storyline- but I feel like there was just a lot of extra fluff to it... no surprise ending.. nothing. I totally called what was going to happen half-way through.

Anyway.. it wasn't my favorite.

Wonderful Weekend

Yes I know- I'm a complete slacker! I have been meaning to update so here ya go!

This weekend I went to my parents house in Buckeye and hung out there for Mother's Day and Jolene Jenkins surprise birthday party- which was I think, a total success! There was tons of people there and Whitney did so good with the food and everything. Good job Whitney! After that Whitney and I went to chill at Stormys house- lots of laughter for sure. It's always fun hanging out with those two. I'm going to miss them when they both leave (stormy's going to Ecuador and Whitney is going on a mission). Saturday My mom and Derek's girlfriend Brittany and I met Chris and Kati at the Temple to help them take care of the boys. They are getting so big and so adorable. After the temple we ate and went back to the house and played some card games- Brittany kicked our trash at like everything.

Sunday was Mother's Day! We got my mom an Ott lamp (it's a quilting thing) and she was so excited about it! I'm glad cuz she definitely deserves it! I'm glad that as I've gotten older we've become really good friends. I swear I call her at least 5 times a day to tell her something or ask her what do I clean this up with ha ha. I have been married almost a year and I still need my mom :)

Monday... hm... i can't really remember... WAIT! My mom and I went SHOPPING. That was fun- we went to Ross, Target, and Sam's Club and bought all the stuff that I can't buy up here. It was fun to have a day just us two.

Today was my last day of class- YAY! We'll see if I pass- stay tuned :) In exactly 4 days we will be on our way on an all expense paid vacation to Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farms, and Universal Studios (hotel and food included). Sweet huh?! Only there's a catch... we're taking 20 seniors with us. Kyle is the senior class sponsor so we will be going on the senior trip. We will be at Disneyland on our 1 year anniversary, but I think it's pretty cool! We reserved a table at the Blue Bouye (The restaurant by Pirates of the Caribbean) so I'm really excited!!

Kyle has gotten like 5 or 6 DJ jobs already for this summer, so that's awesome. He's really excited, he loves to Dj...

My mom found this ADORABLE kitchen table at a yardsale for 50 bucks- so she called me and i said I love it! Let's get it! so our old kitchen table is now my "craft table." the new one is a bit smaller than our old one- but it's just us two right now and I think this table fits better in the kitchen...
We'll let everyone know how the trip was... and maybe some other exciting news will be posted later- so stay tuned! ;)

Careful Who You Scare

Some people may not find this as funny as I did but I have to admit I was sitting at home by myself and laughed out loud for about 5 minutes straight. So hopefully some one else gets a kick out of it as well. And remember "Careful who you scare".
