Don't give up....don't give up......

I have had a little surprise the past few weeks. Let me tell a little story. Sharing this with the WORLD will give me more motivation.

About 2 weeks ago, I was called in to go to the dress alterer's house to get a final measure. I brought my two sisters, Brynn, and Haley, with me. The lovely alterer, Andrea Woodall, left the room as I changed into my wedding dress. Brynn began zipping up my dress, and stopped, when I heard these words come from her mouth. "I hate to say it but.......your dress,.............doesn't zip up." NOooooooooooooo! So to give a short summary of what I just told you, yes, I'll admit, I'm too fat for my wedding dress that I'm supposed to wear in 15 days. No actually 11 days, for pictures.
So the past couple weeks have consisted of dieting. My diet includes: veggies, fruit, chicken, and fish. AKA, no sugar. Mostly veggies. It's working slowly, but surely. Woo! It's one of the hardest things I've ever done, because if you know me, I LOVE sweets. And it doesn't help that Derek and his brothers are doing what's called BG. Biggest G
ainer. They eat fatty foods all day long. I am learning to just leave the room while they enjoy heavenly milk shakes. Mandy Pandy Queen of Candy is the nickname I was given at age 2. I miss sugar, but it'll be worth it. And surprisingly, I'm excited to eat like this more often! I've also been exercising daily. Being able to do this, has given me more confidence in myself and I know I can do it now! I never thought I could.


P90X came in the mail yesterday. I completed the cardio X disc. I was excited. This morning as I stood up out of bed, I almost collapsed I was so sore. But I'm going to do as much as I can again this morning.


Last thing, I miss Derek. We again, are apart. I saw him tuesday for a little bit after his ward shower. I seem him again Saturday. Hopefully Friday for a date. I hate being apart from him. I'm so excited to be married so we don't have to do this anymore. But we are both being productive at home. I've been working hard on wedding plans and school, and he's been working on finding a place for us to live with his dad, real estate, and helping his brother with these last weeks of school. He is such a good example of love. Nicest and most loving person I know.

Announcements are about done and should be arriving in the mail today and tomorrow. If you don't get one, it's not on purpose I promise. There have been many complications and we did our best. Let me know, and I can get one to you! There are extras! Love you guys!

Showering in Arizona


Dear fellow blog followers, we have missed you greatly these last couple days and/or weeks. The reason Amanda and I were gone for the last 3 days from Utah, is because of this: A bridal shower held in honor of Amanda, due to marriage, was held in Arizona. Therefore, you might be wondering why I went. It's because I want to be around Amanda 24/7. Also it's still winter in Utah and it's always summer in Arizona. Also to look at some properties in hopes of blossoming my career in real estate. In case you're wondering, the shower only had women food (salad). It was really good salad though. Because it was a bridal shower (not a groomal shower), I tried to hide from everyone while it was going on. Unfortunately, they kept finding me and bringing me in to meet people and etc. But overall, it was a fun and worthwhile experience.

At this current time, I am in bountiful and my lover, Amanda, is in Cedar Hills. We are both trying to be productive with getting certain things done and frankly when we are with each other, our productiveness decreases 50+/-%. That's why I updated the blog. Love you!

Also, a shout out to my sister and soon to be sister in law, Haley and Mckenna! It was their birthdays yesterday! Haley is now 13, and Mckenna is 14. I was sad I couldn't be with Haley on her birthday, but I'm excited to see her and give her her birthday present today! It was fun being able to talk to her on the phone for a while yesterday and I got to hear all about her surprise party! Love you girls! Happy Birthday!!
