Fairytale Lies

The past couple of days I have read some really great perspectives on marriage and love. When I was little I always thought I would get whisked away from my life my some charming prince. He would be rich, handsome and preferably actual royalty. Although my husband is pretty dang handsome we are the opposite of rich and he is definitely not a royal. I think people these days go in to marriage with the wrong expectations and when they are not met they give up. Marriage is hard, it is rough and not for the faint of heart. It is a journey and an adventure and at many times it is far from perfect but it is worth it. When you look at marriage through Gods eyes you see that it is not meant to be perfect but to perfect us.

I need a party to plan!!

 Any takers? I am in the planning mood but have no friends to party with here (we are a sad, sad little married couple)... I just spend my time searching the internet and lusting over party after party. I want this lady and these ladies jobs. One day this will be me but I figure I should finish school for now.... Until then I will just lust over all the amazing things I see online....

Every party needs a pinata

And garlands galore.....

So I guess if anyone wants to let me plan a party for them just le me know and I will use all this inspiration to get it done! 

Try a Little Harder to Be a Little Better

“Try a little harder to be a little better.” 

“In all of living, have much fun and laughter. 
Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured.”

“It isn't as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don't worry. I say that to myself every morning. It all works out in the end. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. He will not forsake us. If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him, if we will live worthy of His blessings, He will hear our prayers.” 

“Get on your knees and pray, then get on your feet and work.” 

“Being humble means recognizing that we are not on earth to see how important we can become, but to see how much difference 
we can make in the lives of others” 

“Faith in something greater than ourselves enables us to do what we have said we'll do, to press forward when we are tired or hurt or afraid, to keep going when the challenge seems overwhelming and the course is entirely uncertain.” 

 Thank you President Gordon B. Hinckley.
You are the man of the hour.

Love it Now!

This Sunday I went to church with such a bad attitude. Jon had to work, the time change kicked my butt and my hair was just not playing nice. All I could think about was the future, when I'm done with school, when Jon will have a job that won't take up our weekends, when we have little nuggets to love.... Our speaker must have been reading my mind cause all she spoke about was being happy NOW!

It has been a really long time since I have taken that many notes in church. It really got me thinking. It is so important to find joy in this journey. We can spend our whole lives wishing for the future or pineing for the past but in the end all we will have accomplished? To really get the most out of our time on earth we have to live in the moment and love it. This is not to say that it is wrong to plan for the future or reflect on the past it is just not right to dwell on it. That idea really hit home for me becasue I spend A LOT of time dreaming about "What it will be like when...." It is our job to use our time wisely... growing our talents, loving others and serving them NOT to become so entangled in what could have, should have or would have been.

Happiness in one of the things God expects from us.

This was another quote I will always remember. I spend so much time thinking about all of the things I am suppose to do that I forget that the whole point of this life is to be happy. Heavenly Father made us, he loves us and he wants us to be happy. He will not give us ANYTING that we can not handle, though at times we may wish he didn't think so highly of us, we can get through our trials and do so happily. It really got me thinking about taking a step back and RELAXING. Jon tells me to relax ALL the time. I am seriously a huge ball of stress 90% of my life. So I am making a goal to relax, take a breath and ENJOY this ride. It is my last semster of college, I will never be here again and I should be happy for the expereince instead of dragging my feet (although I still think it is ok to continure the count down.... 53 days to be exact).

Wild and Crazy Spring Break 2013

Remember when I wrote this post? Well this is the warmest it has been all week....

On Monday there was ice on my car... ICE!!!! That is not even fair!!! My last spring break and Florida decides that should be freezing. I don't know what that is about but I am not happy... I just want to be warm soaking up the rays on the beach. I guess this is what I get for bragging about 80 degree weather the week before Spring Break.... sweaters and the heater (for the first time all winter)!!! I have spent the week bundled up on the couch watching Netflix....
 Basically Girls Gone Wild Spring Break Edition 2.0.
This is what spring break should look like....

Not like this!!!! I feel like I need to be bundled up all day hopping around in a sleeping bag....

  Carter & Carter via 100 Layer Cakes at Hitched (now The Cream) which is an event I am SERIOUSLY obsessed with. One day when I live out west I will be at this event. Such a fun twist on a bridal show.
