Wedded Bliss

Exciting news....I'm a wife....again! Steve and I got married on November 26 at the Salt Lake County courthouse. Not the most romantic of locations but due to time constraints with the house, had to make do! We are planning a much more exciting trip to Las Vegas in May where we can have some family time and celebrate. My friend Melanie came to the ceremony and I am so glad that she did! It's strange to have someone go from being a complete stranger a year ago to someone you consider one of your best friends. Love ya Mel! We spent the day with the kids and then went to dinner that night with my sister and her husband, Robb, to Lugano's. It was really good food and good to spend some one on one time with my sis without a gaggle of children around! We then went to Liquid Joe's for our version of a "reception". No need for a traditional reception when you're marrying the same man for the second time! It was fun to hang out with my
good friends and just enjoy the company and the band! Nothing says love and romance like a good ole fake hair band doing cover songs from the 80's! Good times! We are going to dinner with both families tonight for further celebration. Can't wait for some good food and to spend time with both families!

Thanksgiving was great for us this year. I have so much to be grateful for this year. My boys are awesome. They are healthy and happy and provide me with infinite joy. I have a great husband who loves me and whom I love. I am excited to start our lives together again! I have great parents who have let me stay with them while I worked on my degree. I could not have done it without their help. I live in a great country that proved how great it is with the election of Obama. I feel like the United States nows lives up to the statement that it is the land of opportunity. I am thankful for all the members of the service who protect us and keep us safe. God bless them and their families who sacrifice so much.

School is going okay. I have a MAJOR deadline coming up December 15th and then I have the next two weeks off before I start my student teaching in January at Cottonwood High School. Between the wedding, school work, and moving into a new house my life has been very busy but I wouldn't have it any other way! I love where my life is heading and am looking forward to a very exciting future! I'm also wondering how many times I can use the word exciting in one post!

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
